This film is so much fun. I liked it from the second it started and continued on through its entirety. I can say without a doubt that it’s good from start to finish.
THE MOLE MAN OF BELMONT AVENUE is shot well and the production value looks high even though IMDB estimates the budget was only around $350k. The team made good use of their funds, though, and the result is a great looking film.
The acting is first rate, with directors Mike Bradecich and John LaFlamboy headlining a great cast. I am impressed with this duo’s versatility, as they portray excellent characters but then coordinate the film shoot as well. Throw in the talents of a horror icon like Robert Englund and you’ve got the ingredients for one hell of a film. I also have to give a special shout out to one of the actors I know, T.J. Jagodowski. He plays a stoner named Paulie and owns his character with true flair. T.J. was a summer counselor for a pre-college program I was in way back in 1992, so I’m proud to see him on the big screen.
THE MOLE MAN OF BELMONT AVENUE is full of comedy, but the horror is intense, too. There are plenty of jumps and a few scares to go along with the funnies. But I found myself chuckling more than I did jumping. This is certainly not a bad thing, either, as I like my horror-comedies full of fun.
THE MOLE MAN OF BELMONT AVENUE is a definite win for me and I highly recommend it. The film is available now in a variety of formats.
So what works with this film? It has some jokes here and there that are pretty effective and while they're not belly laugh type of jokes, they are the "snort and roll your eyes" type of jokes. This movie knows that most comedy horror films can't really be horror *and* comedy, so it decides to go for the comedy route and doesn't really invest much energy in trying to make the mole man scary. If anything, this is comparable to Ernest Scared Stupid in how it approaches any actual scares: meaning that unless you are five, this film won't scare you. The main characters are likable enough for the most part, although I did find them somewhat annoying at points. The film's strongest points are easily its secondary characters, who are played by some fairly recognizable faces- most notably Robert Englund. He's absolutely fantastic here and woefully isn't in this as much as most of us will want him to be.
What didn't work? The film felt like it was about 20 minutes longer than it actually was and I couldn't help but feel that this might have worked better as a shorter film, maybe about 50-60 minutes in length. Some elements could have easily been cut out and some characters merged into others.Read more ›
