Children of the Grave

An experiment gone wrong turns two medical workers and their test subject into flesh eating zombies that escape the building to go wreak havoc in the beautiful country side. A group of teens head out to a graveyard to hang out and party. What should of been a day filled with sex, drugs and rock and roll turns into one messy blood fest. These zombies are starved and ready to tear into limbs and brains! If you can’t read you will have to just guess at what they are saying because it is a Russian film. The subtitles didn’t bother me a bit and all of the blood makes up for it trust me.

No sooner does the gang get there does these zombies show up and fuck up their plans. Luckily the little shack they are in is fully stocked with all kinds of things that could and can kick a zombies ass. Will anyone make it out of here without becoming some zombie’s sandwhich? What starts as three soon multiplys to many when the spilled blood of the living dead seeps into the ground and animates the dead people in the graves. All these kids need to remember is the golden rule of aim for the brain! Children of the Grave is a fun watch and goes out of it’s way to shed some serious redness!

Bloodmyth

Do you have what it takes to survive out in the wild? Personally, I wouldn’t last a day! I’d probably have a nervous breakdown. I would panic and if someone else was with me they’d have to knock me out just to shut me up. A quartet of wanna be explorers head up to meet Holly’s sister Juliet who has trained to be an instructor of teaching you how to stay safe and make do if you are ever lost in the great wide open.

The three most important things you need out there is water, clothing and shelter. Nick the driver seems to be a head strong type of guy that tries his hardest to hold onto his cell phone claiming it’s for work purposes but deep down I think he is scared of not having a way to get a hold of someone if help is needed. Later he will learn his instincts were dead on.

Wesley is a dork that takes notes on everything they are taught. He also came fully stocked with optional items like candy bars and a big ass bladed knife. Everyone giggles at his foolishness.
While wandering thru these woods they all come across a really weird contraption. Here it is some sort of sacrificial grove complete with fresh blood. I know if I would of seen this I would of packed up and got out of there stat!

They all decide to stay and soon they become hunted by a cold calculating killer! Will they be able to make it out of this place in one piece? Bloodmyth is filled with booby traps, blood and a man who wants them all dead. Can their survival tactics help them in this deadly situation? Watch and find out exactly why this man is doing what he does. He is searching for the power his soul craves to exist

Splatter Movie: The Director's Cut- Official release in April

Splatter Movie: The Director’s Cut – official release coming in April!

Happy Cloud Pictures is pleased to announce that its fourth feature, Splatter Movie: The Director’s Cut will celebrate its official DVD release in April, 2009. As detailed in Fangoria Magazine, Splatter Movie is surreal and off-beat “documentary” about the making of a slasher movie called “Tessaract” (which, in turn, is about a group of filmmakers shooting a movie called “Splatter Movie”) whose cast and crew is being stalked by a killer masquerading as the film’s fictional killer. Written by Mike Watt and directed by and starring Amy Lynn Best, Splatter Movie quickly spirals into bizarre territory as the line between film and reality blurs—then disappears entirely!

Splatter Movie: The Director’s Cut stars Tom (The Evil Dead) Sullivan, Debbie (Nowhere Man) Rochon, Sofiya (A Feast of Flesh) Smirnova, Elske (Poultrygeist) McCain, Rachelle (Jess Franco’s Take-Away Spirit) and Nikki (Demon Divas and the Lanes of Damnation) McCrae. The movie features the song “Spot the Psycho” by Cornbugs, featuring vocals by Choptop (aka Bill (Repo: The Genetic Opera) Moseley).

The official DVD release comes loaded with a companion film, deleted scenes and more. This release also marks the debut of Happy Cloud Pictures’ own distribution arm, bringing the DVD straight to the consumer and eliminating the red tape. The M.S.R. for Splatter Movie: The Director’s Cut is $19.95, but to commemorate the event, HCP is offering $10 off the official copy to anyone who bought the previous “work-in-progress” DVD-R release online or at past conventions.

To coincide with this auspicious release, Happy Cloud Pictures will also release a companion screenplay annotated and illustrated, available separately, detailed with numerous behind-the-scenes photos and details about the production from Best and Watt. This handsome collector’s book will be available for a limited time and offered autographed through the HCP website at www.happycloudpictures.com – For more information, please visit the site.

Stormforce

This is a 100% not my type of a flick but I really enjoyed Stormforce. Rick Symons is a maverick Army diver who seems to have an ample amount of experience but always seems to press peoples buttons no matter where he goes. While on a top brass military reception he takes things just a little too far and his commanding officer has no other choice but to send him over to the Airforces 40th search and rescue mission.

So now Rick is part of the Sea King helicopter rescue crew and he realizes that Alex the teams medic is the woman he humiliated at the military reception. She asks him why he looks so familiar but he denies ever meeting her. Later on she figures it all out and her feisty attitude has her trying to outwit him time and time again. I don't know how she does it but this woman is extremely brave and big hearted.

Watching these people do their job is exciting at times and sad at others. It must be a hell of a feeling to be credited for saving someone's life. I wouldn't even be able to handle the helicopter ride let alone being lowered into the needed situation on that wire...it's crazy. Near the end of the film my DVD got stuck and I couldn't stand not knowing the outcome of that frantic dangerous mission.

I would recommend Stormforce for anyone who wants to have an exciting watch along with some drama! So just as Rick is ready to leave all of this behind a distress call comes in that a ship is on fire and they need to evacuate it before it goes under. Take a chance on it, I did and it was well worth it. It made me realize I need to expand my horizon's when it comes to seeing different types of movies!

Southern Fried Bigfoot

Living in NJ, I know what it is like to have a legendary monster slinking around in the woods since The Jersey Devil has been spotted for decades. So many people have turned in accounts of seeing it but there is no actual proof. Well in Southern Fried Bigfoot you learn all about the hairy beast who has been dwelling down south since the first report back in 1837.

Does this creature actually exist or is it some elaborate hoax that has been continued for years? Countess reports have documented the monster, while huge footprints have been found and cast to study. Most of the casts have 3,4, or five toes which they seem to believe it is from the inbreeding within the Bigfoot breed. Science claims this whole deal as bullshit since there is no concrete evidence to support the claims of this swamp devil.

Bigfoot has been called many names such as yeti, sasquatch, cattle critter, mo mo, raggedy man, swamp devil, wild man, skunk ape, booger, and even the last caveman. He wasn’t given the name of Bigfoot until the 50’s and there were 1000’s of reports of people seeing this thing. Cattle was attacked which led them to believe that it’s a scary aggressive primate who is actually attracted to trailer parks.

Bigfoot is described as being well over 7ft tall with arms so long that when they hang down they go past his knees. Claims have said that sometimes it’s hairy body is silver, white or dark colored in nature. This documentary was a blast to watch and kinda makes you go “Hmmm could there really be Bigfoot somewhere out there?” Who knows, science doesn’t have an answer for everything out there so why couldn’t there be a Bigfoot out there lurking?

November Son

Two years ago an obsessive gay love triangle came to a head and not only destroyed three men’s lives but it shocked everyone around them. Emily Hamilton played by Judith O’Dea is grieving the loss of her son and the way she treated him right before he died. Everyday this woman has to get up and remember just how rotten she really was to Elliot. It’s just so hard for an old horse to learn new tricks.

Openly gay and proud of it Eli ends up moving into the apartment that two of the victims previously shared. I think he feels it’s negative energy as soon as he steps foot inside but he likes the place and decides to rent it. George, Eli’s father is fresh out of prison and starts to date Nancy who is played by Brinke Stevens. Nancy is hip to the whole gay thing so she just misses her son immensely.

Nancy starts to think that maybe George is more than a disappointed father at Eli being gay. She starts to believe that maybe he likes men as well. George doesn’t take that suggestion too kindly and they have a huge fight. One thing I was surprised to learn was that this film was a sequel to a film October Moon. But don’t worry if you have never seen it like myself, you don’t need to.
But you might want to after seeing this!

All of the people in Eli’s life seem to be fucked up in some way or another so when Emily hires him and then starts to treat him as her lost son. I guess she thinks from doing this she is making up for what she put her son thru. Suddenly people start dying in torturous ways and you try to figure it out…but can you?
