A Creepy Kev Comment on ­Dark Skies (2013) ­

Another interesting twist on the haunted house that quickly goes in an interesting direction. Earnest performances from a good cast and subtle, sparing use of visual effects kept it grounded. I went into this one jaded and with low expectations, but I'll be damned if it didn't give me the chills on a few occasions. Recommended. Turn off the lights and let it suspend your disbelief.

A Short Found Footage Lesson

Found footage horror films are now the mainstream. Yet before Hollywood, as they strive to appear more indy and artsy, co-opted the gimmick of point of view, “found,” and shaky home camera footage, the style was predominately used out of necessity. From the first of it's kind (Cannibal Holocaust (1980)) to the film that made the genre a big screen success (The Blair Witch Project (1999)) the only goal of the filmmaker was to tell a story with an over abundance of will and as little else as possible. It was that tenacity of will that made it possible for films like [Rec] (2007) and Paranormal Activity (2009) to become both cult and box office successes. Comparable to the poverty row films of the 1930's (i.e. Bride of Frankenstein (1935), White Zombie (1932)) they were always intended to operate on the fringe of the Hollywood system and actually exist despite it. Today found footage films have become mostly spectacles of themselves. Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2 (2000) is a prime example of how overwhelming budgets that allow for over the top special effects (i.e. Cloverfield (2008)) and creative multi-camera usage (i.e Paranormal Activity 2 (2010)) which ultimately proves that, given enough money, even clever low budget artists like Oren Peli (writer/director Paranormal Activity) will eventually be swallowed up by the Hollywood machine (i.e. Chronicle (2012)). That is not to say that recent Hollywood blockbusters that utilize similar techniques are without value. The [Rec] sequels ([Rec]2, [Rec]3 Genesis) and Trollhunter (2010) have manged to prove that creativity and artistry still exist even with the use of in-camera special effects. Sadly, everyone must of realized that a television show like The River (2011) only exhausts such creativity thereby rendering it mundane! We don't see a lot of found footage anymore unless it is independent.

Terror Time: A Clip from 'Haute Tension' aka 'High Tension' (2003)

Indy Review: Dead Kansas (2013)

“A truly down home style telling of what to expect from the zombie apocalypse. Dead Kansas is a Midwest love letter to the zombie genre.” - Creepercast

In a post-apocalyptic land consumed by "Rottens", a simple farmer and his teenage daughter struggle to survive. Meanwhile, an unruly gang make a plan to kidnap and sell the daughter for their own selfish profit. With the farmer/gang confrontation, a wicked tornado approaching, and "Rottens" everywhere - who will get out alive? (IMDB)

Dead Kansas is a 2013 award winning festival favorite (Fantasticfest and Zedfest to name a few) independent Zombie / Horror / Comedy / Action-Adventure film distributed by Rotten Productions. It is Directed/Written by Aaron K. Carter and stars first billed Erin Miracle, Alexandria Lightford, Ben Woolf, and Aaron Guerrero.

Dead Kansas is a truly down home style telling of what to expect from the zombie apocalypse. It is the Midwest love letter to the zombie genre that feels like a redneck western. Though it obviously takes place modern day, it could be any day from the 80's to now. It is, after all, an post apocalyptic look at an often overlooked demographic. Dead Kansas is a simply shot, oft times goofy, representation of the backwoods folks including circus freaks. On that note, the only thing missing on the freak angle was a freak zombie, that would have taken the humor the extra step it needed. The film is funny though, from the gang leaders' cartoonish way of leading his group to the the first person point of view of zombies. I must admit, the POV aspect bothered me at first. It wasn't until the first zombie kill that I realized that we are the zombies, something I found genuinely humorous when I considered how much the film makers saved on on zombie effects and the statement that this inadvertently made. Once you get past the silly, Dead Kansas is a fun cult following film that is deeply self aware. On that note...

The acting was sometimes either flat, or over the top, but it worked with the self aware content matter. Erin Miracle was the perfect dutiful daughter (please don;t be distracted that Emma turned into her about half way through the film) that can take care of herself. Now if she had turned into the bad arsed girl I believe she is and beat up the gang leader herself that would have been funny! Speaking of the gang leader, Michael Camp's Jebediah was a pleasingly cartoonish fit for a Warner Bros. short. Then there's the two timing Kevin C. Beardsley, the growling metal head gang member Zeke is surprising as he also dons a colonel Sanders suit to be Rusty. That brings us to the doting, and committed to God and Emma, Aaron Guerrero. He is the perfect straight man to all the insanity although I found myself feeling sorry for the fact he didn't seem to get at least one good goof. But he did bring up his daughter well. That brings us to our cast of freaks...

Joe McQueen starts us off as Skinny. I hate to say it but in many ways he was the token, fitting every stereotype. But again this is a film aware of its own silliness, and Skinny grows on you after a few minutes, especially his incredible knack for trying to appear helpful by coaching Emma to do what she is already good at doing. Little Person Ben Woolf had parts in Unlucky Charms, and Hunting Charles Manson. In Dead Kansas he plays the stern but lovable carnival folks leader “Squeak,” undoubtedly named because he sounds like a dog chew toy when he walks (foreshadowing?). This does make one wonder how he survived a zombie apocalypse this long. No doubt the Giant Irwin Keyes (House of 1000 Corpses) helped in that regard. Sadly Ben, known for his roles on “American Horror Story” and most notable of late as “Meep” in season 4, was struck and killed by a car while walking across Hollywood Blvd. We of the Creepercast send our love to his friends and family.

my thoughts on.... 'Creep' (2014) (an original Creepercast site review)

I'm going to make this review short and sweet, just like 'Creep'.
Found footage is dead.

I say they're wrong. I've been a believer and a supporter of this low budget genre since I first laid eyes on 'The Blair Witch Project' way back in 1999. It's cheap, effective and can allow anyone with a good idea, the ability to become a film maker. It gives you a gateway into a reality that is far more accessible than a 3D epic in IMAX. It's like real life, but scripted. I won't say that they're all gold plated balls of amazing. There are more examples of the bad ones than the good ones. It's also become an easy way for Hollywood to milk a franchise with a cheap product that is guaranteed to make a profit. I think all of those factors has turned it into the scapegoat for all that's wrong with horror and made it very unpopular to admit you like the genre. Too bad box office numbers say you're lying. With all that being said, along comes a little sleeper with a star in it. Something that sneaks up behind you with a werewolf mask on and pins you in a corner. A little film like 2014's 'Creep', starring Mark Duplass.

Who's Mark Duplass, you ask?
He's primarily known as a comedic actor, but here we see him take a very different turn and tone. He's also the co-author of the screenplay. Here.... he's a true creep. His counterpart in this film is Patrick Brice. A man's who's mostly known as a director/writer, but he's having the tables turned on him. He's still behind the camera directing, but he's also thrust out into the limelight and turned into the star. Both men are very believable in their roles and even though they're carrying the entire weight of the film, it feels like there is so much more going on that you never even notice it's just the two of them. I found myself engrossed in the story line within the first 5 minutes and just kept falling further and further down the creepy hole until the VERY subtly, satisfying finale. It's the biggest problem with horror today, the ending never lives up to the first 2 acts. In 'Creep', it paid off in spades. Granted, I would argue that the last 5 minutes isn't necessary, but at the same time.... it gave a nice closure to the story brought everything full circle in a way.

'Creep' tells the story Aaron, a man with a camera, who's on his way up to a remote cabin in the mountains to connect with a man he's never met before. To spend an entire day filming him and to become a paid voyeur. Josef is an affable man who's asked to have someone spend the entire day with him and document whatever he needs them to. In exchange, he promises money and a life changing experience. When the two men meet, you can feel the tension of when strangers first become forced friends. And when Josef hugs Aaron for the first time, you could literally taste the awkwardness of the scene. They both have the desire to trust one another, but there's a constant hum of something just beneath the surface. You don't know what it is or what's going to happen.... all you know is that it's there and you can feel it deep down inside your bones. As the day slowly moves along, Josef is obviously a bit of an odd duck, but harmless enough. Maybe a bit to overbearing and hugs too much, but seems to have his heart in the right place. Aaron does his best to go along with everything that's happening around him, even though you can tell that he's fighting the urge to just run away. Eventually, a bond forms and the two men start to become friends. Then the cracks start to show. From here on out.... I won't tell you what happens. If I did, it would spoil everything the film establishes in the beginning. This is one of the films that you should stay away from reviews and just watch it, sight unseen. I've maybe said too much as it is!

It's not often enough that a film comes along that surprises you. I've been lucky enough to have a few of them in the past couple of months. 'Creep' was one of them. I wish I could explain the last 30 minutes in great detail and why it turns into something so incredibly realistic and terrifying, but almost absurdest all at the same time. Mark Duplass turns in a tour de force performance, that proves he's got chops for anything you throw at him. I was genuinely creeped out by him. I also just said, “tour de force”. Patrick Brice is perfect in his role and allows you, the viewer, to immerse yourself into the full experience and world he's created. Patrick and Mark wrote and directed and starred in something that can only be described as 'straight forward simple scary stuff'. It proves that you don't need a big budget or giant cast, to make a great story. A very healthy, 4 out of 5 stars

Lovesdragons Momentary Review:: Stephen King’s A Good Marriage (2014)

I love Stephen King’s books and one of my favorite movies/books was IT. I took a chance on this
movie even though I never read the novella. They spent a lot of time working the relationship with
the husband and wife which made it a little slow for me. Once she found out her husband’s secret
she dealt with it way too calm then I ever would have. Though the ending was probably the best
part of the movie. I’m hoping the novella is much more interesting.

News: The Predator: Upcoming Sequel Gets New Release Date

via iHorror

Despite an up-and-down history of sequels and spin-offs, sci-fi/horror fans continue to hope that one day a new Predator film will come close to the sublime glory of the original 1987 John McTiernan masterpiece. The latest entry into the Predator canon is simply titled The Predator, the hotly anticipated brainchild of respected writer/director and occasional actor Shane Black.

The man behind recent theatrical action/comedy The Nice Guys, Black played Hawkins in the original Predator film, and has gone on to write and/or direct such memorable projects as Lethal Weapon, Iron Man 3, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, and of course cult classic The Monster Squad. Plot details on The Predator are still scarce, although Black has confirmed that the titular creature will receive a badass redesign for the film. A return by original hero Arnold “Dutch” Schwarzenegger has also been teased, but not officially confirmed.

Up until this week, The Predator was set to stalk theaters on March 2nd, 2018. In a move sure to please fans, FOX has now bumped the sequel’s release date up nearly a month to February 9th, 2018.

NEWS: Unofficial Psycho Video Game Adaptation Gates Motel in Development

via iHorror

While a handful of notable entries (The Evil Dead, Friday the 13th, Saw, Alien/Predator)  have been released over the years, one area where popular horror franchises never seem to get enough love is the world of video games. Sure, there are lots of original horror games made, but rarely does a notable genre film property get successfully translated over to the interactive realm.

Indie developers are working on a Psycho related game, albeit in an unofficial fashion. Entitled Gates Motel, the game is currently in a pre-alpha state, and thus has a long way to go before it’s done. Still, the idea sounds quite appealing.

“The game puts players in a motel off the main road, where they will play as a woman who has to confront two kinds of nightmares: The owner of the establishment as well as her own, deep, dark fears. Your job is to avoid the same fate previous tenants had to suffer while making your way to the telephone to notify local authorities and be rescued. Akin to traditional survival horror games, you will have to use your inventory and your cunning to solve various puzzles as you find your way through the motel. Survive the night, face your fears, live to see another day or perish.
Are you ready?”

A Terror Time: A Clip from 'Alien' (1979)

Forbidden Empire (2014)

“A fantastical voyage deep into uncharted territory to chart it. FORBIDDEN EMPIRE is a magical romp into the 18th century with monsters, mayhem, and mystery."

An 18th century English cartographer, Jonathan Green (Jason Flemyng), sets out on a journey to map the uncharted lands of Transylvania, only to discover the dark secrets and dangerous creatures hidden in a cursed, fantastical Ukrainian forest (IMDB).

Forbidden Empire is a fantastical voyage deep into uncharted territory to chart it. It is a beautifully
shot and amazingly complex film that stars Jason Flemying as an inventive cartographer that knows he is meant for a higher calling. Though he may be a bit of a screw up, he is all heart when it comes to love and dreaming. Dzhonatan is the perfect character for Flemying as he vies to win his future father in laws favor by proving that his inventions will chart the world and make it a less scary place. Speaking of scary places, where else could one be sent that may lead to their demise in a time such as this? Why Transylvania of course! The land of vampires, witches, and countless other evil monstrosities that may only exist in the psyche of the local inhabitants, especially if they are drunk on their own brand of home made hooch. Of course they may be real too. Director Oleg Stepchenko does a masterful job blending the possible reality and fiction of Transylvania in a flurry of special effects and color dazzling to the eye. How much is real and how much is invented by the vindictive local priest remains to be determined.

Under Stepchenko's direction, Forbidden Empire looks and feels like a Terry Gilliam film with a
twist of M. Night Shyamalan. That is to say, there is a twist, with a twist, but looks fantastically
cinematic. Our cartographers inventions would make Gilliam proud and DaVinci prouder. In fact
they do, since a Da Vinci of sorts aids our hapless hero in his endeavors.

At this point I must admit I need to climb down off of my soapbox, by now everyone of the
Creepercast audience has heard my tireless rants about M. Night Shyamalan. But I have just
compared Stepchenko and writer Nikolai Gogol 's masterpiece to none other than he. In my defense I also said Forbidden Empire looks and feels like a Terry Gilliam film, and I love Terry Gilliam for his cinematic eye and comedic timing. So though the story has a touch of Shyamalan, I wouldn't go so far as to say the twists are like his at all. Stepchenko masterfully uses the twist technique, mixed with monsters, mayhem, and mystery!

Full of outrageous comedic action, to force us to question the story's validity. Then when we think we got it figured out he twists it again in obvious horror fashion. Thus taking two juxtaposing styles of story telling and turning them into a visionary spectacle. That much said, Forbidden Empire's executive producer usually gets a bad wrap for his work too. Although I've gone record on many occasions about his poor decisions as a film maker in the past, I can say, without a doubt, Forbidden Empire is not one of them. The Creepercast has gone on record.

Forbidden Empire is a magical romp into the 18th century with monsters, mayhem, and mystery.
It's a must see for adventure fanatics and a voyage into dark lands for horror fans.

my review of.... 'Deathgasm' (an original Creepercast site review)

As with all of my reviews of the independent films that we get sent here at The Creepercast, I fully recommend that you check each and every one of them out. I am one man and this is my opinion. I've seen plenty of movies that received reviews that were the complete opposite of how I saw the film. These writers, directors, producers and actors all put a lot of time and love into these projects. They deserve to be seen and appreciated for what they are. Everyone has a dream and I fully support the people that take the time to make theirs a reality. With that being said....
When I was in high school, I was a bit of a conundrum. I guess you could say, in a lot of ways, I still am a bit of an enigma. A riddle, trapped inside of a question. A big, hot mess of a mixed up soul. The point is, I walked a fine line back then between being a complete nerd and a semi cool guy. Granted, I was in a very small high school and there was blurred lines between the main branches of the high school clique brigades. I most certainly wasn't one of the cool kids, but I hung out with them. It was too damn small of a place not too. I also could be just as easily found playing Dungeons and Dragons, as I would be drinking it up at the Saturday night house party. I loved all sides of the high school spectrum. For me, there was no lines that couldn't or shouldn't be crossed. Life was too short to not love everything that made you feel good. Made you feel alive. One of my lifeblood's from the day I was born, is music. All kinds. There is something in every genre that I can appreciate and love. However, in high school, there was a transition period when hair metal was on the way out and alternative/grunge was kicking down the doors to my heart. A midst all the chaos and confusion of that ongoing struggle, was pure metal. Not your run of the mill kiddy stuff, but true metal. Obituary, Fear Factory, Death, Helmet, GWAR, Voivod and the list goes on and on. While I was in my car driving to and from school, it was mostly back and forth between Extreme, Nelson and Guns and Roses, but then that slowly shifted to Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins and Pearl Jam. However, on the weekends, I hung with my metal head friends and we went to see shows on a regular basis. So, here I was, in the middle of a mosh pit with Obituary on stage and me feeling just as at home as if I was playing D & D with my best friends. This was my life. This was me.

What's the point of all of this nostalgia? Well, it's because this movie spoke to me. Spoke to me on all the levels of my high school experience. It screamed volumes about walking that fine line between nerd and metal head. The love of the cheesy horror films of Sam Raimi or Peter Jackson. The desire to fit in and to be someone more than you were. All of these themes played out in the movie 'Deathgasm', to near perfection. The only things that I didn't experience, that the characters in the film did? Living in New Zealand and summoning demons from hell. Other than that, spot on.
Written and directed by Jason Lei Howden, best known for his visual effects works, this was his first full length feature and holy hell, it's a masterpiece. This is a love letter to everything that made horror fun back in the 80's and early 90's. It's like he took every element from all of the greatest genre pieces of our time, threw them in a blender and then poured us a frothy glass of awesomeness. With a groundwork built upon an incredibly fun story line, he layered it with amazing practical effects, top notch actors and some pretty kick ass music. It's like he lept inside the head of every kid I hung out with in high school and took a survey on what they'd want to see in a movie and this was the result.

'Deathgasm' centers around a group of 4 guys who don't really know each other too well in the beginning, but soon form a bond and metal band. Meanwhile, one of them has eyes for a beautiful girl who runs in a different circle of friends, but he's slowly bringing her to the dark side of the tracks. Along the way, the guys discover an old record sleeve, containing an incantation to summon a demon apocalypse and a way to turn them into demons themselves. It's written in the form of a song, but before they can decipher the language it's written in, it's already too late. They've played the song and started a chain of events that they really don't want to stop, even if they fully understood the repercussions. It feels like a younger and less heavy take on some of the themes from Rob Zombie's 'The Lords of Salem'. Music = summoning of evil. Just throw in a little bit of 'Trick or Treat', 'Brain Dead' aka 'Dead Alive', 'Evil Dead 2', 'Return of the Living Dead' and some 'Demons' to taste and you've got a pretty good idea, what kind of roller coaster ride you're about to embark on. This is THAT movie.
It starts off feeling a bit like 'Detention', but quickly pushes that aside and becomes it's very own animal. Complete with some fantastic music, some hilarious references and one liners, killer artwork and some really well done editing and transition points. 'Deathasm' fires on all cylinders from the time the credits roll until the last little 'stinger' scene after the credits. Which, trust me, you'll want to stick around for. I should also mention that each character gets their own little individualized intro that makes me love them even more. I mean, I don't know how else to put this into words other than, from start to finish, 'Deathgasm' lives up to all the hype you've been hearing and then some.

If you're looking for something new, fresh and incredibly fun, then this is the one film you need to see this year. Not sold yet? I'll give you three words: double chainsaw fight! Oh and did I mention a cloud sequence where evil is pouring from the sky and the opening happens to look like a giant anus? This is going to be a cult classic, mark my words and here is your chance to get in on the ground floor, kids. You'll never look at dildos the same way, after seeing this film.
All in all, I'd give 'Deathgasm' 5 out of 5 stars. This movie has everything a metal head could ever want and everything the jaded horror fan has been looking for. I don't heap this much praise on too many films these days, but I have to give credit where credit is due. Jason Lei Howden hit the ground running with this one and I am anxiously awaiting what comes pouring out of his head next. Opening everywhere on October 2nd, 2015, this is not one you're going to want to miss. What more can I say? Lace up your combat boots, strap on your spiked wrist bands and trow the devil horn high in the air. This is 'Deathgasm'.

If you like this one, check out: 'Detention', 'Tucker and Dale vs. Evil' or 'Bad Taste'

A Creepy Kev Comment on The Ledge (2011)

Picked this one based on my continuing post­ Sons Of Anarchy Charlie Hunnam binge as well as the film's purported pro­reason stance. Plus, the writer/director is a descendant of Charles Darwin himself, so bonus, right? No. This tepid piece of crap is amateur hour through and through, from the atrocious acting to every technical credit I can think of. It should be renamed The Room 2: Atheist Agenda ­ it's that bad. Presenting its hero as such an ignorant, selfish, amoral jerk, it does nothing good for the image of atheists. Plus it makes such awful, amateurish arguments for its message, it was embarrassing to watch. A direct punch to the groin of all logic and reason. Another one of those films that makes you wonder how this thing actually got greenlit, and how did all these halfway respectable actors (not counting Liv Tyler ­ she's terrible all the time) get snagged into this? Stay far away.

News: Rising Progressive Metal Quintet BINARY CODE Streaming New Track 'Dark Meditation'

Listen Now via Loudwire's New Music Showcase
New Album 'Moonsblood' 
Was Released May 24, 2016 |Order Here
First 50 Pre-Orders Receive a SIGNED Copy of the Art Poster Below
Engineered and Mixed by Eyal Levi (August Burns Red, The Contortionist, Monuments)
Performing Entire New Album on June 15 (tonight) @ Dingbatz in Clifton, NJ

New Jersey/New York-based progressive metal group BINARY CODE will release their long-awaited, powerful new full-length offering Moonsblood. You can pre-orderMoonsblood now via the band's Bandcamp page - the first 50 pre-orders will receive a special signed poster featuring the album art image above.

In the past month, BINARY CODE has dropped two new tracks, "Immersion" and"Moonsblood", in anticipation of the new album's release. Making up for lost time since their buzzed about 2009 release Suspension of Disbelief, the band is sharing a third new track, "Dark Meditation". Listen now via Loudwire's weekly New Music Showcase feature:http://loudwire.com/new-music-showcase-exclusive-premieres-binary-code-letters-from-the-fire-rival-city-heights/
Guitarist Jesse Zuretti states, ""Dark Meditation" is a song that I oddly enough wrote shortly following my first time doing DMT, and starting Transcendental Meditation. I'm not a hippie by any means, nor am I a psychonaut, but I am a firm believer in expanding perspective. The instrumentation in Dark Meditation is a perfect representation of an expansion of perspective, which I think is something you can't push to happen; it happens naturally, and it happens when it happens. I was in a very dark state of mind, having dealt with a crippling bout of depression and my experience with this mental expansion lead me to a breaking point where I could finally be comfortable with the person I was becoming. This transposed greatly from perspective into the music I started to write. Many of the people who are familiar with our music have said to me that they are surprised by the transition the band has made, but there's also a familiarity with it. I attribute that much to being responsible for the majority of the songwriting during the time where I made it passed an event horizon."
Engineered and mixed by Eyal Levi (August Burns Red, The Contortionist, Monuments) at Audiohammer Studios and mastered by Alan Douches (Suicide Silence, Dillinger Escape Plan, Converge) at West West Side Music, the members of BINARY CODE poured everything they had into delivering an album that would ultimately be a game-changer. Moonsblood features new vocalist Oded Weinstock and promises to offer up a completely different sound from what fans might previously expect from the band. Heavy, melodic and progressive, yet focused and tightly written, Moonsblood boasts powerful vocal hooks, huge, thundering riffs, gorgeous atmospheric tapestries and impressively technical musicianship and songwriting.
Moonsblood track listing:
1. Immersion
2. Trees 100ft Underwater
3. Dark Meditations
4. Moonsblood
5. Knell
6. Push
7. Cetacean
8. 707
