Review: Island of the Blind Dead (Youtube Short) (May 2015)



Island of the Blind Dead (2015) is a 3 minute feature directed by Emma Dark & Merlyn Roberts. It is based on the cult Spanish horror film-series, Tombs of the Blind Dead (1972). The short was shot in St. George South, Corfu where Dark plays the bikini-clad lead as she roams the beach whilst being pursued by the BLIND DEAD in a silent, art faux trailer shot-style.

If you love Tombs of the Blind Dead, then you should dig and respect this short, put-together tribute which has over two thousand views since being uploaded in March, 2015. The zombies look just how they looked in the inspiration for this silent, art-like teaser! They are slow and creepy and couldn't help but be entertained by the campiness!


The film is also shot in a warn, 8mm-style on purpose and not influenced by anything modern in style. It's influence is old horror and slightly tongue in cheek. Island of the Blind Dead is worthy of late night viewing and worth giving a THUMBS UP on Youtube. Both, Emma and Merlyn also star and feature on Seize the Night (2015).

Emma Dark  as Jeannie
Elias Loumakis as Prof. Theopolis
Merlyn Roberts as Blind Dead
Sharon Loumakis as Mother
Athena Loumakis as Daughter

George Catavatis as Blacksmith

He also collaborates with actress Eirian Cohen and actor Laurence Harvey. His screen writer credits include,  A Killer Conversation (2015) and Talk of the Dead (2017).
Tell me about any upcoming Projects you are working on?
Well, the next one is the big one, THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS ZOMBIES, the first feature film I’m going to produce. We start shooting in a little over a week, so all buzzing with excitement and knee-deep in preparations ;) The story is basically a woman welcoming her ex into her house, totally oblivious to the fact that he’s actually a zombie, and her husband, who has killed that very same ex in the first place, is understandably less than thrilled. Eirian Cohen stars as the woman, with Rudy Barrow being her husband, Rami Hilmi the zombie ex, and we have guest appearances by US horror icons Debra Lamb and Lynn Low…

Review: "I'm A Gun!" (2017) - Directed by Mikeal Burgin!! (October 2017)

Intense short film I'm A Gun (2017) is directed, written and edited by Mikeal Burgin. It's a ten minute film narrated by a Hitman who is killing off his Prey in the City. It has got a slight Tarantino feel in it's approach with a bit of dark humor and obvious Violence! It features a few twists here and there - featuring some bad language and intense drama scenes, too! For Mature Audiences, Only!

I really enjoyed I'm A Gun! The soundtrack was killer towards the end and keeps you on your toes. Burgin is a crafty film maker dipping into genres which takes the audience on a wild, unpredictable ride throughCinema Craftiness!

Plot:"A gun-for-hire accepts a shady contract targeting a beautiful and deadly woman. When the mark's disabled brother gets in the way, the job quickly turns into a desperate fight for survival inside a den of madness and brutality.".
