My Evil Dead Collection! (June 2014)

I was mad on Evil Dead in college! Videos, posters, models and magazines, etc. I had it! Here is part of my collection that I have left in photos - see the below video, too. If you've never seen Evil Dead (I'm sure you have), it's about five college kids that go into the cabin in the woods to party and frolic. However, in the cellar, they find an old tape recorder in which they play back an evil spell to re-awaken the demons! The film stars a then unknown Bruce Campbell as Ashley Williams (aka Ash) who went on to star in two comedy horror sequels - also directed by Sam Raimi. My collection was a good one, but today you see tattoos and rooms-filled with memorabilia. However, I am still proud of this franchise and in 2013, we got a new ED film: Evil Dead (2013) in which a new generation gets to this awesome horror legacy! Enjoy the photos of my collection... "Join Us!".







REVIEW: The Out & About Movies by Wetmovie1 & Coolduder! (June 2014)

Whenever I need a laugh I turn to two dvd-rs directed and edited by Youtubers Coolduder (aka Shawn C Phillips) & Wetmovie1 (aka Brendan Mitchell). They are the Out & About movies available on Amazon. If you are into movies and Youtube, you will likely know who these film fans are...
The first film is Around the Country (2010) in which Coolduder and then friend, MJ Kelley take a road trip to Shawn's new home in San Diego. Scenes are set up and acted along the way, but the travelling by the end of it all nearly killed the pair... and each other! It's a feature length comedy blog where the guys eat, sleep and argue abiut the journey and must drive against long road ways and traffic in order to get home in one piece!
Out & About: Las Vegas (2011) also stars Coolduder when Wetmovie1 and Gabriel Mercado take the trip to the gamblling capital of America. Gabe seems to like pissing off his two buddies by walking off and bringing less money than expected, but it is a laugh…

REVIEW: $how Me Da Mon3y (2010) - Directed by Clive McKenzie! (June 2014)

Show me Da Money (2010) is a 7 minute shoot-em-up gangsta short directed by Clive McKenzie and starring Karate Debs and John Shelton. It was filmed in Nottingham and a crooked deal is going off between two wanna-be business men dealing with a suspicious suit case! When one off them is killed by a female cop (Karate Debs), the other is left in a violent shoot out to the death upstairs in the house where the deal was taking place! Cue, the Action, now! If you stay through the credits, you will see the out-takes.

Shooting took place for me over a cold, chilly weekend in November, 2010 - the follow up scenes were shot by Clive and Debs.I've always admired Clive's kung fu and film making skills. He runs Talking Records, Ltd. and is an active Youtube user who knows how to put together a short film feature for the sake of entertainment! Even though my role was a brief one, I always know when to step aside and let Clive and his GF Karate Debs do the action parts - all though, he alway…

REVIEW: The G-String Horror (2012)... Debra Lamb/Tasha Talonz! (June 2014)

How could you fail with a title like The G-String Horror (2012)? The film was directed by Charles Webb and is set in a real haunted, yet abandoned movie palace turned strip-club in San Francisco, USA - Market Street Cinema. 
Debra Lamb plays a psychic who is called in to investigate the building's grisly history where a film crew is ghost hunting and hearing the nightclub's past bloody history! Tasha Talonz (of Black Devil Doll [2007]) plays a demon "Baby Doll" who was murdered in the club by a group of rowdy, yet unpleasant strip club costumers and boy is she pissed! 
It's a 70 minute docu-horror based on real life ghost stories and events that Debra Lamb uncovers as the film goes along in it's Ghost Adventures style. NOTE: the same TV show did shoot here, too for an episode!
The film is fun, but this is low budget stuff! If you like your ghost shows and paranormal set ups with night-vision cameras, then this will probably be for you! The eye candy (Talonz a…

REVIEW: Transformers: The mOvie (1986)... Animated Classic!! (June 2014)

December, 1986 was the date! My dad, brother Paul - see, HERE - were going to the cinema after moving house! Wow, we were off to see TF - The Movie (1986) after seeing it advertised on tv and in comic books! Now, cast your mind back... feature length animations are NOT what they are today, but this felt like an event and a half! Having grown up on Transformers was a lucky treat in the 80's. Optimus PrimeMegatron, Grimlock, Soundwave, Bumble Bee, etc is NOT like now - but, the awe was still there! In this new movie, we are introduced to Galvatron, Unicron, Junkions, Sharkticons, Ultra Magnus, Arcee (a female Autobot), Hot Rod, Kupp and many others, etc. as well the Matrix (long before Keanu Reeves). We got a kick-ass soundtrack via muscians like Vince DiColaand Stan Bush... as well as KickAxe, NRG and others including Weird Al Yankovic!

The Autobots and Decepticons are fighting over Cybertron on Earth and briefly in space - cue the destruction of childhood heroes to the sound of…

Melaine Robel... Alternative Indie Actor/Model (Interview) (June 2014)

Mel Robel is a striking actress and model who breaks the rules as a scream queen of indie horror. She prefers to be an icon and her rebel side is something she takes serious as a film maker. Her roles include Joe Hollow'sDisciples and A Blood Story. It's no surprise that she is a keen animal lover like a lot of scream queen peers appear to be, too - having rescued four cats in the past! Mel also resigns in Orlando, Florida and is keen on keeping fit in her spare time for personal gain and acting parts!

Dawna Heising... Glam Indie Horror from LA! (Interview) (June 2014)

While promoting/supporting Indie Horror through social media, I came across Dawna Lee Heising on The House of Evil 3D - directed by Massimiliano Cerchi. I dug a little deeper and found out that she works for Eye on Entertainment in which she interviews fellow actors and directors in the industry - please, see her Youtube. I discovered she was also a Miss Universe in 2009 and saw how dedicated she was to Indie features through her Imdb page. She also works with Frolic Pictures - founded by Jared Masters.
You were in Blade Runner and Big Trouble in Little China.  What is the difference in the film business now and then?
I had small roles as a cage dancer and prostitute in “Blade Runner” and as a Chinese guard in “Big Trouble in Little China”, but I was on the set for both films for at least two weeks.  The sets were both huge and very elaborate, and there was a cast of thousands.  If you look at the beginning of my career on IMDb, I’m sure you've heard of most of the shows.  The indu…
