Interview: Eric Elick (Film Composer) (July 2016)

Eric Elick is a fine Composer on the Indie Film Scene and Musician. His name first came to my attention on Emma Dark's Seize The Night(2015) and on films like RATS(2016) andEgomaniac (2016). Please check out his Facebook event page for the Seize The Night Scorehttp://bit.ly/2ak0u0Q. Also, please see his Soundcloud Profile. Pre-Order:Seize The Night OST. Eric'sOfficial Website.
What age did you start making music?
I started making music at 19 when my brother purchased his first synthesizer, the Alesis QS6! I saw him making music and it looked like a lot of fun, so I made a mini album for my family composing a song for each of them that represented how I viewed them in a musical way and gave it to them on cassette tape that Christmas!
How did you start composing for Short Films? Seize The Night? Egomaniac? Etc.
It all started in 2014 when my cousin, Damon Rickard, co-directed his first short film entitled "The Tour".  I saw promotional images he was posting on FaceBook…

FILM NEWS: LA based composer Eric Elick releases stunning industrial score (July 2016)

LA based composer Eric Elick releases stunning industrial score to Emma Dark’s epic short film SEIZE THE NIGHT.
American composer Eric Elick has been making quite a buzz on the indie film scene recently.  Having scored eight short films and a feature in just under two years with additional projects to be announced later this year, Eric now sees his first movie soundtrack release.  Eric’s moody industrial score for Emma Dark’s award-winning British short film SEIZE THE NIGHT has been complimented by film critics and moviegoers alike.  SEIZE THE NIGHT’s stand-alone album release came after an unusually high demand from fans of the vampires vs. werewolves action-horror, which has seen an immense amount of popularity over the past year.
Eric had this to say about the release:  "I'm excited to release the soundtrack to the public so that people have a way to enjoy the music when not necessarily watching the film, and to possibly introduce the film to a new audience who may have no…

REVIEW: A Convenient Store - Directed by Susan M. Connor (July 2016)

Plot: An small time thief robs a Convenience Store on Halloween night. It's an evening with a lot of tricks and very few treats.Short film by Susan M. Conner. Starring David Ferreira and David Witt. Run-time:19 mins.
A Convenient Store is a quirky little adventure from the USA. It features Zombies at Halloween, a very "convenient" time. It has Comedy elements, too. It is very nicely shot and very independent. It has had a good reaction at Film Festivals and Conner has a great style of Comedy timing, as well. Conner also makes an appearance in the film.

I give this funny a 3 1/2 out of 5 and it is worth a look. A cool, kooky little flick for Women In Film lovers everywhere.

The wait is almost over for Japanese fans of the big G in Godzilla Resurgence. On 29th July 2016, the film hits Cinemas in the east for the first time and brings back an even bigger, badder-looking Godzilla creature of our time! This one even towers the 2014 Legendary Pictures version seen in the west a few years back! Will it be a success? Will it spawn a new series? I really hope so as other G movies are in the work in Hollywood, too.

REVIEW: Burial Ground aka The Zombie Dead - @88_Films (July 2016)

Wow! Burial Ground is a Schlock-Horror Zombie B-Movie Classic! A sleaze-fest indeed mixed in with classic Italian gore! It's silly, it's fun, it's gross, too! NOTE: Above is the Beyond Terror Dvd Review!
Plot: A professor unearths the Living dead where they attack guests at a nearby mansion - it's that simple for the set-up in this Zombie flick!
I remember growing up watching BG on VHS rental with my dad and didn't quite get the adult themes until repeated viewings! I blame actor, Peter Bark! It's a very entertaining, midnight kinda film is BG. 88 Films recently bought it out with tons of special features, which is good news for fans! And the one-liners in this film: "I'm your Friend!" says the hapless professor to a re-animated zombie coming for him. "Mamma, this cloth smells like Death!" - damn you, Peter Bark, again.
The film is worth a watch. I found it silly as just as shocking the way classic 80's Italian Horror should be. It&#…

REVIEW: Talk of the Dead (2016) (Zombie Satire) (July 2016)

Talk of the Dead is a UK/Austria satire horror short! It was written/produced by SearchMyTrash's Micheal Haberfelner. It stars Lynn Lowry and Eirian Cohen (who also Producers) who are horror/indie regulars. The film is a part-comedy and satire (as mentioned) - it is clever and mixes it up with the likes of Lowry (an american scream queen) playing an executive, defending her company which allegedly starts a zombie-apocalypse. It's nice that it mixes up the across seas actors, cast and crew. Directed by Eddie Bammeke.
Interesting enough, a feature is due to shoot in future - "I'm Doing My Part! There's No Such Thing As Zombies!".

REVIEW: The Thin Man (2015) (Feature Film - Horror) (July 2016)

Plot: With hopes of making an epic viral Youtube video on the Thin Man curse, Bayden, Dylan and Jordan go in search of the titular character. 
This is found footage horror based on Bayden Redshaw's short film on Youtube, simply called The Thin Man. It is a feature version that does run for 15 minutes shy of 2 hours in the cut I saw. The lead actors play themselves and there is some bad language through-out the feature.
It's a very ambitious feature film effort by the Redshaw brothers (Bayden & Dylan Redshaw). It uses a few issues that are seen in young people's lives like relationships and the search for internet stardom! There is horror and some uneasiness when The Thin Man turns up for his victims. The acting and joking around by the lads is quite convincing. The scares are good it is best watched in the dark like most horror films should be!

What I thought was clever, was Bayden using his real-life illness and issues and playing them into the story of The Thin Man. …

Happy 4th of July from MrSheltonTV!! (July 2016)
