Apparition of Evil
Apparition of Evil
DVD
Price: $11.99

1.0 out of 5 stars WASTING MY TIME, February 8, 2016
This review is from: Apparition of Evil (Amazon Video)
Emily (Kate Marie Davies) pays for a thumb drive that contains 3 hand-held shorts of paranormal activity. The first one is shot in the outback as two guys are out in some brush and hear growling. It contains the blurry running cam and a lot of WTF to add realism. The second one is a mother and son team go ghost hunter in a Rochester, NY cemetery. It has the dreaded green cam. The third and longest feature is shot in black and white. A man moves from Manchester to Chester into a house with a haunted attic. Apparently a witch lived there. After watching the first two Emily reflects on what the audience feels, "Wasting my Time." Emily lives in Chester.

The films were all shot poorly even for hands of the genre. The stories were intensely boring. The opening credits gave me a headache.

Guide: F-bomb. No sex or nudity. Plug for "Sloppy the Psychotic."


BLOODLUST-PLAYING WITH DOLLS 2
BLOODLUST-PLAYING WITH DOLLS 2

3.0 out of 5 stars GREAT ROOM, BUT WHAT'S THAT SMELL?, February 7, 2016
This is a Rene Perez's so bad its good film installment. Don't be confused, this in a one star or zero star film. I just thought it was so bad I got some enjoyment from it. A reality TV show takes 4 contestants to a mountain cabin where there is no cell phone service, except when the cell phone rings. There is a slasher up there and the last person standing stars in their own horror movie and that million dollar thing. I am not sure why someone wears a barbed wire guard around their head, seems a bit cumbersome at beddy-bye time. The film doesn't end with closure and director-writer-producer-etc.-etc. will certainly make another one. I am glad to see he is doing bad horror instead of bad fantasy films with idiotic flashbacks.

Guide; Nudity (Elonda Seawood, Karin Brauns or double)

2.0 out of 5 stars IONOS-FEAR, February 7, 2016
This review is from: Ice Twisters (DVD)
The government uses drones to create and seed clouds that turn all Frankenstein into ice twisters. Only Charlie (Mark Moses) an ex-scientist and fiction writer without a clearance can save the world. Luisa D'Oliveira is our token hot Asian chick. Blah, blah blah.

This is a made for US TV movie using the standard formula for disaster films. I was bored within the first two minutes and it never let up.


Alien Lockdown

2.0 out of 5 stars WE ARE NOT DICTATING THE RULES, February 7, 2016
This review is from: Alien Lockdown (Amazon Video)
Indian Jones digs up an ark that has a stone in it. Stone is used to create Predator in a facility in the part of Colorado "near the Earth's magnetic core." TV version of a hot Asian chick (Michelle Goh) leads a group to kill Predator, a hide-and -seek game that consumes the bulk f the film. Some boring twists too.

This is a made for US TV film. Might pass as decent sci-fi horror for a nine year old.

2.0 out of 5 stars CLEANSE THIS WORLD TO SERVE YOUR MASTER, February 7, 2016
This review is from: Forsaken (Amazon Video)
Paul, a priest (David E. Cazares) discovers his wife is deathly ill. He claims God has abandoned man and goes on to get his wife possessed by a demon in order to cure her brain cancer. I am not sure how that works, but it did. Paul speaks some badly spoken Latin to the demon while the demon speaks badly spoken English right back The cure works fine except for those irksome Ouija board games. In the end we find out this was all part of a larger plot and Paul now claims he has turned away from God. Let's just say someone has abandoned someone. There is some odd theology spouted at the end which didn't make any sense, but then again, the film lack cohesiveness. The double jointed girl on the cover appears early in the film. I liked the mirror scene. The scary lines didn't work like, "I didn't leave my door open." Acting left something to be desired as did the script and dialogue.

Guide: F-bomb. No sex or nudity.

2.0 out of 5 stars THE ONLY CHOICE YOU CAN MAKE DEPENDS ON YOUR OPTIONS, February 6, 2016
This review is from: Last House, The (DVD)
Love (Lauren Walsh) is a stripper/escort and Ned (Jason Mewes), a customer, loves her. Love is ready to leave and run off with Ned but is coerced into doing one last house. Here the three escorts meet Hate (Ezra Buzzington) a man introduced earlier spouting religious theology and we know he is sadistic and evil. The main plot intersects with flashbacks and flash forwards, clearly an editor on drugs, assuming they had one. The soundtrack was pretty decent. The twist/plot was slightly different. I was confused by the Felissa Rose walk-on. Did we need that?

Guide: F-bomb, sex, stripper nudity (Joanna Angel)

5.0 out of 5 stars IT WAS THE WORST OF TIMES AND THE WORST OF TIMES., February 6, 2016
This review is from: Film Clip: 'Beasts of No Nation'
Agu (Abraham Attah) is a young lad growing up in impoverished western Africa. He lives a somewhat idyllic life under the circumstances. The film builds his family life in the background involving a war zone between the army and rebels. Through a series of circumstances, the army kills his kinsmen and Agu manages to escape and reluctantly joins forces with the rebels and vows revenge.

Agu has some first person narrative. He struggles with cultic aspects of the rebel army and battalion leader. He discovers they have no respect for life, but he has no alternative and curses the sun for shining on him. He realizes with death all around him, he has been robbed of his childhood, perhaps with thoughts and language well beyond his years.

This is not a story of hope or despair. It is a drama about life, a life that doesn't have a Hollywood ending or twist.

Guide: F-bomb. No sex or nudity. English subtitles in places. I would recommend watching the film with the subtitles as the English is difficult to understand at times.
