Interview: Pamela Moore (Singer/Musician) (September 2017)

Singer, Pamela Moore.
Pamela Moore is a solo musical-artist from Seattle, USA. She also found fame with the band Queensryche in 1988's Operation: Mindcrime. She has also been a great vocalist (in my eyes) and continues to make music - starting in the early 80's with Solo Albums and Musical experience and style changes!

Tell me a bit about the NEW up-and-coming Album?
Well,  without saying too much…  the new album is being mastered right now, design for the cover artwork is underway and once all that is finished we will be announcing the name of the album and a release date with pre sales 3 months prior to the release date.   I’ve invited some stellar musicians to join me and I can’t wait for everyone to hear it!  Casey Grillo (Kamelot) on Drums, Rudy Sarzo (Ozzy Osborne, Quiet Riot, Whitesnake) on Bass, Randy Piper (W.A.S.P.) on Guitar and “spoken voice”, and Ralf Scheepers (Primal Fear) sharing his voice on a duet, with my guitar players and co-writers,  Michael Posch and Craig Church.

What Singers Inspired you growing up?
I was inspired by my cousin, Terri Nunn (Berlin)  Just watching her stage presence and confidence was beyond stunning… she still IS STUNNING, inside and out!   I’ve always been in awe of Paul Rodgers too! But, this question is so difficult because I have so many artists that have inspired me in so many different ways.

You have a Harder Metal sound on Resurrect Me Album... What was your Input?
MY input?  If I’m understanding you correctly perhaps it’s the many years that I worked with Queensryche.  Sharing the stage with Geoff was an embedded offering of inspiration and I would say that rubbed off on me.  But, I’ve always wanted to do a hard rock, metal album and finding the perfect collaboration for that was key.  It just seemed fitting.

Is there anybody you'd Dream to Collaborate with in Music?
Well,  I had a huge dream to work with Chris Cornell.  I can’t believe he is gone… such a loss we won’t ever be able to hear anymore new music from him.  His voice was incredible!  Chris could be gritty, clean, powerful and tender all in one song.  But, his inspiration lives on forever.  RIP Chris Cornell.

Over the Years, how do you feel attitudes to Female Singers have Changed? Positive - I Hope?
I’ve seen a lot of progress over the years as attitudes have changed toward Women In Rock and I would say, artistically, it feels more equal.   But, we still seem to place so much emphasis on how we “look” that some artists (men and women) may get “overlooked” because they don’t fit the “cookie cutter” image.  “The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance”. ~ Aristotle.

Trailer Released for: “Mad Women in My Attic! A Cabaret of Musical Lunacy” (September 2017)

“Mad Women in My Attic! A Cabaret of Musical Lunacy”
Cabaret performer Monica Salvi and filmmaker Samantha Oči have partnered up to create an eccentric promotional video for the upcoming stage show “Mad Women in my Attic! A Cabaret of Musical Lunacy” - which is due to be performed in London and New York in October 2017.

Shot in London’s Murder Mile Studio (a renowned alternative venue and S&M Dungeon) the trailer is full of dark humour. Miss Salvi describes it as “Hammer Horror meets Rocky Horror meets Alice Cooper” - citing these influences as her greatest inspirations whilst growing up. Paired with the dark and dramatically lit atmospheres that characterise Miss Oči’s cinematography style, the trailer seeks to conveys a small taste of what is to come with Miss Salvi’s full theatrical show.

Miss Salvi had this to say about the trailer and forthcoming show: “I think we all have a trigger for madness within ourselves to some degree, and the more we acknowledge it, explore it and allow our ‘emotional madness’ to come out in a healthy and creative way, the easier it is to recognise it in others, and build better relationships, not based on judgement, but on understanding. I want this show to inspire people to unleash their own streak of madness!”

Miss Oči added: “I've always been drawn towards imagery that is both dark and surreal, and I think that my cinematography reflects that.  ‘"Mad Women in My Attic!" really appealed to my sensibilities, and I was very excited to work with Monica and the eccentric women that she unleashed during the making of the trailer. Against the bleak and dark backdrop of the dungeon where the trailer was filmed, I really liked the juxtaposition of intense color against black, as I felt that it highlighted Monica’s colorful characters as we delved into their dark but insanely magical world.”

From Avant - to - BeYond Macabre!! (Film-Making) (September 2017)

Reflecting on the last 18 Months of Filming "MACABRE" Trilogy!!
It’s taken about 18 Months to get to this Point... I started AVANT-MACABRE in March 2016. I went on to do Grand Macabre later that summer in August. In 2017 after start and stops, I finished my Short Film Trilogy with Beyond Macabre.

It’s NOT been easy... like I said, Start/Stop, Start/Stop in focusing talents and direction to make a better saga each time!

Avant-Macabre was developed from pieced-together film making and lack of direction, but it got made and the film was set to Poetry by Andrea Dean Van Scoyoc and Gary Baxter and myself. It wasn’t a bad effort on my behalf, but a follow-up would come in Grand Macabre (2016).

GM was a great effort I felt, once I actually came back to the film and employed the VFX of Davy Simmons. It worked a lot better even though YES there may have been room for improvement, but IT finally worked and started to slot into place as a short film.

Beyond Macabre finally came about, again, Start/Stop, etc. when my Communication and some confidence emerged to go ahead with the Project as a Hybrid Clown/Poetry-Horror!! Special Thanks to: Dylan Knight and Alexander Reed for all their Talents on the film and my Younger Brother. Shout Out to: Andrea Dean Van Scoyoc, again for Helping keep me Motivated since Avant-Macabre.
Some Projects made it, some projects didn’t, but through continuing being Creative... I think I’ve done darn well.

THANK YOU TO ALL that helped... THANK YOU!!

So... What’s Next? We will see at this point in time and continue to keep writing and creating MOVIE MAGIC and Illusion. I currently going over ideas and writing and plotting my next few films for the Near Future.

DON’T FORGET... I also did a CHRISTMAS SPECIAL last Year for the Holidays.

Why I Left Past Projects (Gore Feast)!! Indie Horror (September 2017)

MrSheltonTV - FIlm-Maker, Blogger & Vlogger!
In April this year, I felt the need to step aside from the Indie Film Scene. I was very ill with a chest infection, I was down in the dumps and basically NOT creating. This was a hard time and felt grounded to my home and couch not knowing where I was going. Projects were put on hold and I felt very neglected and on my own.

I went to EM-Con eventually just to chill out and meet actor friend, Alex Reed. I felt as though I didn't want to be around BIG crowds and felt closed in and Anxious. Afterwards, and very shortly, myself and Alex went for a Coffee around Nottingham. I was going through my own changes and felt very alone. I explained to Reed that I had to leave-be a previous film Project due to my health concerns and stress levels. He understood and we just talked over a Coffee or two around Nottingham.

I took time out and needed it! I felt badly beaten emotionally and I felt as though I was going through personal changes in my life! My thoughts were getting impulsive and Negative, in-which I didn't enjoy or like.

I dropped out of the past project of Gore Feast after I'd worked to help raise money on an Indiegogo. People were kind and donated, so I have to Thank those people. At the end of it all, I felt as though it was in vain, not because I had to pull-out of the film, but because I was feeling empty and unloved. My creative waves were still on hold. Even though I felt as though I was treated unfairly by the previous Production, I still go on and try to see the best in others.

I met Former Bond Girl, Caroline Munro on my Birthday!!
Happy Birthday to MrSheltonTV. Yesterday, Actor Alex Reed and myself returned back to London to go back to The Camden Film Fair @ The Electric Ballroom. Now, I'll admit, it'd been a while and I was taken back a little bit in London. I had to step outside and wipe away a few tears at the time, but it what an awesome day in Camden, again!!

I was reunited with Emma Dark (Salient Minus Ten [2017] - Trailer), Merlyn Roberts, Gary Baxter, Chris (DidactOfDeath) and Friends. I also got to meet the lovely Caroline Munro for the first time after hearing so much about her and seeing her films growing up.

The previous evening, Reed and Myself had watched Slaughter High (1986) and reviewed the film below in a Vlog for Youtube. Thank You London, Camden... I miss you, all ready!! Thank you for the Birthday wishes.

Dead Cross: "Dead Cross" (Album) - Mini Review!! (August 2017)

Out This Week: DEAD CROSS - "Dead Cross" Album!
Out this week is the NEW Dead Cross self titled Album! It runs at 28 Mins (Approx) and is crazy and heck! Imagine Slayer meets Fantomas and you've got that winning sound of Drummer, Dave Lombardo and busy Vocalist, Mike Patton! The LP/Album is Heavy, Fast and got such an Attitude - it takes NO prisoners at all in it's ballsy Thrash/Punk-like Shredding from somewhere unearthly!!

One may find a few videos online from the band, but be WARNED... NOT for the Faint Heart-ed!! That sums up this album and personalities in this super-group!!

Biography via IPECAC RECORDINGS:

"Dead Cross emerged out of a series of impractical schemes, fallen-through plans, and last-minute musical experimentation. Shows were scheduled before a single song was written, fans were formed before even one show was played. The chaos of its creation seems apt; after all, the band is comprised entirely of artists who have thrived playing tightly-coiled turmoil—intelligent dissonance disguised as disorder. Consisting of Dave Lombardo, Justin Pearson, Michael Crain, and Mike Patton, the impressive, expansive, and eclectic list of prior bands collectively played in would be enough to ensure the unyielding ferocity of the music... but a resume isn’t necessary, here. Dead Cross stands on its own, speaks volumes with its multilayered evil-genius vocals, manic guitar riffs, and brutal rhythms."


Official DEAD CROSS Website: http://ipecac.com/

DEAD CROSS - Track Listing:

1)Seizure and Desist
2) Idiopathic
3) Obedience School
4) Shillelagh
5) Bela Lugosi's Dead
6) Divine Filth
7) Grave Slave
8) The Future Has Been Cancelled
9) Gag Reflex
10) Church of the Motherfuckers

Review: Robocop (1987) (July 2017)

Robocop (1987) - The Future of Law Enforcement.
The sci-fi/action shoot-em-up film, Robocop (1987) celebrates 30 years in 2017. This was always a classic from in the day. My family would rent the VHS from the video shop and the film was repeated on TV, but in a cut form due to Censorship.

Robocop stars Peter Weller as the ill-fated Murphy, who is shot up by bad gangster guys, only to be bought back to life as a walking, thinking machine on the side of the Law in future America. The film also stars Nancy Allen as Murphy's partner.

The characters are memorable and the action is bloody and violent. The film uses practical effects and stop-motion on the likes of ED-209: a killer machine armed with machine guns that goes AWOL!

RC is filled with mock adverts and is great story telling, if not a little violent in it's approach. It has an emotional side too, when it comes to the deceased Murphy Frankenstein Creature and the love his moved-on family he left behind. The ONLY answer is REVENGE on those that did him wrong and killed him on police duty!!

Robocop 2 & 3 followed as well as a spin-off LIVE ACTION tv series and cartoon. The film was re-imagined in Robocop (2014) - a lack-luster reboot attempt for Hollywood.

There is a Director's Cut on DVD and Blu-Ray

Interview: Michael Haberfelner ([re]SearchMyTrash) (Screenwriter) (July 2017)

Michael Haberfelner - www.searchmytrash.com
I got to question Screenwriter and owner of www.searchmytrash.com in Michael Haberfelner. He is currently going to be working with USA Actress, Debra Lamb. 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 Lowry, playing an ineffective zombie hunter and the CEO responsible for the rise of the dead, respectively. It’s a comedy of course. Eddie Bammeke’s in the director’s chair, and it’s produced by me, Eirian and Eddie … oh, and I also wrote the screenplay. We’ve already filmed the parts with Lynn Lowry about 1 ½ years ago and made it into the self-contained short TALK OF THE DEAD, which is currently having a quite successful festival run. Find out more at https://www.facebook.com/theresnosuchthingaszombies/

After that, we (as in Eirian, Eddie and me) plan to film another short with Lynn Lowry in November, but as for now there’s little I can tell you about that one other than it might be called ESPRESSO TO DIE FOR, not because I want to shroud the project in mystery but because we at the moment focus all of our efforts on THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS ZOMBIES.

And other than that, we’re about to launch or latest short, FIRST IMPRESSIONS CAN KILL – written by me, produced by me and Eirian Cohen, directed by Eddie Bammeke, and starring Eirian, Eddie and Lynn Lowry (are you beginning to see a pattern here ;) ) – on its festival run. That one’s about the auditioning process … and it’s bloody consequences. More at https://www.facebook.com/firstimpressionscankill

Your website (re)SearchMyTrash is very popular online... How long has it been going?
Why thank you … and yeah, people do seem to enjoy the site. I actually created the site back in 2003, but worked on it offline for a year and a half before putting it on the net so I could have a running start – if that makes any sense. The basic idea for the site back when was to create a very inclusive film site that would cover movies from all ages, from all over the world, and from the whole budget range. It was only eventually that it became more and more a site about indie genre films as I became immersed in that world more and more … not that I complain in the slightest.

How did you first come into contact with Debra Lamb?
Originally, I did an interview with her five or so years ago, and thanks to her winning personality, we remained in touch ever since. We soon, too, discovered we shared the same sense of humor, so it was only natural that eventually we started planning to make a movie together – but at first, only little became of it as all our projects were of too high a budget, as one of us or the other constantly snuck talking animals into our scripts ;) But when the role of the ineffective zombie hunter in THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS ZOMBIES became vacant (it was cast before I even knew Debra personally, but the project went through numerous shake-ups cast and crew-wise over the years), it was only natural I’d ask her – and fortunately she said yes.

You (MH) work with Eirian Cohen, too - how did you meet?
Oh, that was another interview from about 5 years ago. Again, we remained loosely in touch and eventually started to work on a project – together with my actress friend Dawn Hills – which as of yet still has to come to fruitition. Anyways, as I told you, there were numerous cast and crew shake-ups with THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS ZOMBIES, one of which concerning the female lead – and again, it felt only natural I’d ask her (plus of course she’s an awesome actress), and she said yes. And eventually, when the project (the TALK OF THE DEAD-portion of our feature that is) was about to sink due to unforseeable circumstances I managed to rope her in to produce alongside me, and it was really her who saved the day back when. We’ve since done two more shorts (above-mentioned FIRST IMPRESSIONS CAN KILL and the horror farce THE NIGHT MONICA CAME BACK starring Laurence R. Harvey of HUMAN CENTIPEDE 2 fame https://www.facebook.com/thenightmonicacameback/ ) besides a few smaller projects, and I’m confident there are many more to come!

Finally, any shout-outs you wanna add? Any more hidden Talents?
A big shout-out to Melanie Denholme who’s currently busy bringing my first ever screenplay A KILLER CONVERSATION (which we filmed back in 2012) to the stage.
Shout-out to the WPaD (Writers, Poets and Deviants) writers collective, the only “club” I’m actually proud of being a member. We’ll be releasing a science fiction anthology this fall, and knowing these guys and girls, prepare yourself for a very warped experience.

And finally, shout-out to all the cast and crew members of TALK OF THE DEAD/THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS ZOMBIES not mentioned above, including Scott Hillier, Paul Sutton, Alexander Fernando, Rachel Brownstein, Martina McClements, Reis Daniel, Marcella Woods, Layla Randle-Conde, J. Robert Byam, Gaffyn Voorzta, Rosalie Bottley, makeup ladies Rachel Betteridge and Anne Derbyshire, score composer Paul Henshaw, PAs Sharon Spink and Debbie Ballard … and I’m sure I’m forgetting quite a few people, so please forgive me, everybody not mentioned, I’m not neglecting you, it’s just … erm, the heat here is frying my brain – yep, that’s what it is, I stand by this...

And as for hidden talents – haha, invite me to a sixpack of beer or three and you’ll hear my rendition of the Scorpions classic HERE I AM, ROCK YOU LIKE A HURRICAAANE … be warned, it ain’t pretty – but it’s a talent ;) (this joke is dedicated to Anna P.)

Dark Vale (2017) - Directed by Jay MJ Brown (June 2017)

Jay MJ Brown's Second Indie Feature Film: Dark Vale (2017).
Dark Vale (2017) is a film I followed online for a few years on/off. Jason MJ Brown is a Nottingham film-maker with a passion for the game, but on a low-budget. The film starts of with a Carpenter-like "The Fog [1981]" introduction with a creepy campfire tale. The story sets up a young couple who are pursued by a vengeful Ghost in Lucy!

Darren Randall and Cara Middleton (the lead couple) had great chemistry as lead actors. They are great to watch together and we could see great things from them soon or respectively. Chloe Clarke as Lucy the Ghost is creepy (with Digital Effects by Jason, himself), I've even met her and she was a very down to earth girl.

There are some nice locations around Nottingham-shire in this film. It is like a tourist film, but in a good way showing off the director's home-town. The film also stars Katie Ward, another well known actress from the east midlands area.

Mr Brown has an obsession with the supernatural and creates a creepy little indie film in Dark Vale. It took a few years and cast changes to get finished and can be soon seen on the Wild Eye Entertainment label from the USA on dvd.

Review: Jurassic World (2015) - Directed by Colin Trevorrow! (Review) (April 2017)

JW (2015) - The 4th "Jurassic Park" Installment!
Jurassic World (2015) takes place 22 years after the first Jurassic Park (1993) film. This time, Steven Spielberg would Executive Produce the 4th film in the long-running dinosaur franchise. The moto for this film is "RUN!" as new visitors visit the infamous "Park" envisioned by the late John Hammond. There is a sense of awe and wonder as the Dinosaurs bring to this new generation a Disney-esq experience like no other!

The film stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard. Howard is helping engineer cross-over Dinos as this film features a super dino called, Indominus Rex (cross between a T-Rex and Raptor) - which soon escapes and soon starts to kill off the wildlife and tourists!

Pratt is the hero of the film, who trains Velociraptors (one named "Blue") who must track down the super dinosaur and missing children heroes who are wrapped up in the danger!

Another stand out dinosaur is Mosasaurus - a water bound creature which feeds on Sharks in it's watery playpen. Without giving too much away, it feeds on more than just Sharks and sealife! It's Sea World gone wrong!!

The film takes the classic JP plot-line and turns it up a notch or two with bigger dinosaurs and CGI Special Effects and Action!

A sequel is also planned in: Jurassic World II in 2018.

Wrestling News: The Undertaker Retires at Wrestlemania 33 - Thank You Taker! (April 2017)

The end of the road for... The Undertaker @ Wrestlemania 33.
The stage was set at Wrestlemania 33 this past weekend. The Undertaker aka Mark Calloway faced off against up and comer Roman Reigns on the grandest stage of them all in WWE wrestling! Taker lost the match and retired in-front of a massive Live audience. After the match, Taker placed down his infamous dark undertaker hat and long leather coat in the ring before leaving the arena for the last time.

The Undertaker first appeared in the WWE at Survivor Series 1990. He remained undefeated at Wrestlemania for 21 events before losing to Brock Lesnar in 2014 (WM30). So, what next? With the Hall of Fame happening each year, it is likely to see Mark inducted in the next few years as the Legend is... #ThankYouTaker.

Thank You Taker... at WM33 for the last time!

Interview: John WT on "Gore Feast" (Indiegogo) (Horror) (March 2017)

Film-maker, John WT (Left) is filming "Gore Feast" - Coming Soon!!
After making a number of twisted, but funny shorts, Film-maker John WT is ready to make an ambitious feature in Gore Feast! His previous short, The Unknown Serial Killer, (Review, HERE!) was once shown at the Mayhem Film Festival in Nottingham. There is also an Indiegogo Campaign, too!!

Tell me a bit about Gore Feast?
Gore Feast is going to be the most extreme anthology ever. It is about twisted lives. We are looking to shoot Gore Feast during the summer and autumn of this year. Hopefully Gore Feast will premiere just before Halloween at Mayhem Film Festival 2018. I feel this will be a fitting premiere as my first short The Unknown Serial Killer premiered at Mayhem Film Festival ten years previously in October 2008. Mayhem Film Festival has also supported and screened a number of low budget features from British Directors including Colin and Monsters.

Tell me a bit about the Indiegogo?
The indiegogo campaign is going live on Tuesday March 28th at 1am and is to fund Gore Feast. We are looking to raise ten thousand pounds for the making of Gore Feast. We have a number of unique perks including signed photos of Gore Feast star Rachael Caulton, Gore Feast posters signed by John W.T., masks to be worn by characters in Gore Feast, digital downloads of my previous shorts unavailable online and associate producer credits.

What film-makers Influence you for your films?
A number of film-makers have influenced Gore Feast these include: Hershell Gordon Lewis, Tobe Hooper, Tim Burton, Yoshiro Nishimura and Michael Powell.

How do you feel about a feature film?
I feel excited about making my debut feature film.

Finally, talk a bit about the Special-Effects? Cast and Crew?
I have a number of exceptional crew members for Gore Feast these include: SFX Make Up artists Jenny Gilbert and Natasha Mann-Harwood who specialise in SFX Make Up on a low budget; D.O.P.'s Nicholas Wright, Edward Dinnage and Sigita Silina and Producer John H Shelton. As regards cast very few parts have been filled. I can say that Rachael Caulton an excellent 23 year old Nottingham based female actor will be starring in Gore Feast and playing more than one role. I was extremely impressed with Rachael's work in the Gore Feast Trailer.


Review: Zombie Lake (1981) - Directed by Jean Rollin & Julian de Laserna (March 2017)

Nazi Zombies attack in... Zombie Lake (1981).
Zombie Lake (1981) is an interesting little schlock horror film - directed by Jean Rollin and Julian de Laserna (Uncredited). It's a french zombie horror film in-which soldiers from the war are shot up by the enemy and dumped in a mysterious lake where they rise up many years late as the ghoulish undead! It's that simple! Throw in some female nudity and low-budget bloody effects and you have Zombie Lake!

It's fun, it is low budget, and it never really drags on too long if you love a good little horror film with cheesy effects. An example is that the "zombies" are painted green for low cost, it seemed! The odd zombie might have had a bit more time spent on them, instead of others in the make-up department, though.

On with more of the plot, though... a young girl's dad happens to be one of the zombies in the film. She has no fear and is the one who has to lead the ghouls off to their end-of-film demise! She lures them in with the demands of the french town villages to treat them to a bowl of blood before the zombies are fried to death with flame-throwers!

These zombies are Nazis from the war and are seen as the enemy! They attack bathing beauties in the lake known to be haunted. An urban myth with zombies! It's fun, it's sleazy.. try it out if you have an afternoon or evening free!

Review: Kong: Skull Island (2017) - Directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts (March 2017)

Kong: Skull Island - A Monster Mash!!
Set in the Vietnam War era in the 1970's, Kong: Skull Island (2017) is a giant monster mash! Some critics have been harsh with plot holes and lack of story, but I enjoyed the return of KONG!! The story goes that Monarch (see Godzilla [2014]) are off to see and uncharted island with the military, a crew and a reporter! The island is covered by a thick storm in-which our heroes and villains of the film have to fly through to get onto Skull Island.

Soon and in no time, the crew are met by the mighty supped-up famous Kong ape as they drop bomb chargers on the island to the upset giant monster! Some of the military are killed which sets up a sub-plot in-which vengeful military leaser, Samuel Jackson wants revenge on Kong for killing his men! Also, on Skull Island, John C Riley has been there since fighting in an earlier war in the 40's. He is now a leader and mentor to a mysterious tribe of people which worship Kong - who is out to really protect the island from other monsters, known as Skull Crawlers!

Good, giant monster fun from directed, Jordan Vogt-Roberts. The film also stars Tom Hiddleston and Brie Lawson. Kong and his monster friends are all CGI, but my gosh, is this island terrifying crawling with over-sized gentle giants, giant arachnids and a family of Skull Crawlers!

Also, please stay and watch the post-credits for more Monster Mayhem and future sequel/films of giant proportions!

Review: King Kong (1933) - Directed by Merian C. Cooper & Ernest B. Schoedsack! (March 2017)

"Classic Monster Action in King Kong (1933)"
The black and white classic Monster Film in King Kong (1933) was released during the great depression in Hollywood. The film was a GIANT HIT thanks to ground-breaking stop-motion effects by Willis O'Brien. Many classic giant monster films would follow in Godzilla (1954) (which used suit-motion) and The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms (1953) - which also used stop-motion effects. Kong 1933 is considered the Grandfather of them all, though!

The story of Kong features an actress named Ann (played by Fay Wray) from New York. She meets a film-maker who sets sail on a ship with it's crew to uncharted Skull Island! The native people on the island decide to kidnap her and attempt to sacrifice her to an island god-monster in King Kong! He appears from out the jungle and carries her away, leaving the ship's crew to rescue her and the film-maker continues to film his epic documentary about the mysterious island of doom!

Kong is soon captured later in the film and bought back to New York to be put on display on Broadway. However, first he fights off huge dinosaurs and monsters to project the ill-fated Ann who is screaming for her life!

The ending comes when Kong climbs the Empire State Building with Ann in his grasp, before being shot down by fighter planes! "It was Beauty... Killed the Beast!".

Review: King Kong (2005) - Directed by Peter Jackson (March 2017)

Peter Jackson's EPIC King Kong (2005) Remake!
Peter Jackson's long, epic Hollywood remake in King Kong (2005) follows in the line of his Lord of the Rings (2001) films. They are long, about three hours long and are a CGI spectacle. Younger audiences might like this  sort of thing, but in 2005, CGI in Hollywood was getting more advance and is a BIG part of story-telling with massive budgets!!

King Kong (2005) follows the story of King Kong (1933) in a faithful remake mold which is set in 1933 - a period piece! Naomi Watts plays Ann Darrow, an actress (from New York) taken on a sailing voyage with promise of fame and stardom by Jack Black - who plays Carl Denham, a film-maker. The ship goes to far-off Skull Island in-which island natives capture Ann for a sacrifice to their island God, King Kong. This leaves the ship's crew and heroes to face danger and giant monster dinosaurs and creatures to try and rescue her from certain doom. However, Kong - a thinking animal and loyal gentle giant - has fallen in love with Ann and is protecting her from harms way too!

The film has humor and when a relationship builds between Kong and Ann, the audience emotions kick into gear with Kong being the hero and star of the film. Jackson even includes in the infamous spider/insect pit scene cut from the original.

As a remake to the 1933 epic, some might have seen it before in the familiar love story of beauty and beast! This remake was announced back in 1998 and maybe even before as Jackson wasn't willing to bring a Kong film out the same year as Tristar's Godzilla (1998) as reported in the late Fangoria magazine!

Warning: Some scenes may not be suitable for Young Children with the monster violence and creature effects!! Some genuine dinosaur/monster thrills ensue through-out the film. Once the film gets going, just shut off your brain and enjoy the thrills!! Great music and action for newer fans, too - it captures the emotions if you let it.

Review: The Unknown Serial Killer (2008) - Directed by John WT (March 2017)

TUSK - A film by John WT.
Golden oldie, short film review time in The Unknown Serial Killer (2008) starring Bert Chas and directed/written by John WT of Nottingham. This short film also went to be shown at Mayhem Film Festival in the same year.

A masked, serial killer dreams of being famous, but is stuck on the dole in real life! This seral killer doesn't have much luck known as the Unknown Serial Killer influenced by peers!!

TUSK has a sense of humor and so does director John WT when it comes to serial killers! It was shot in a small flat and is a little grainy, but a bit of fun for what it was shot on. Dark Comedy, indeed!

Review: King Kong Lives (1986) - Directed by John Guillermin (February 2017)

King Kong Lives (1986) - Directed by John Guillermin.
Ten years after King Kong (1976), came King Kong Lives (1986) - a direct sequel by John Guillermin - again. Kong is in a coma from the giant fall from the Twin Towers building and needs a blood fusion and heart transplant to stay alive! Linda Hamilton plays a surgeon whilst in the jungle another Kong (a lady one) is discovered by an explorer. This sets up the sequel and Kong gets his operation, but things go wrong when Mr and Mrs Kong escape into the wilderness in the USA!

The army are in pursuit, so are redneck hunters and the media in King Kong Lives.

A bit of a throw-away sequel, but a fun one if you can switch off all reality. If not, then this film might not be for you? It features actors in Kong suits, a bit like in the 1976 version, but the enemy here is mankind and a bloody battle with the army happens towards the end of the film.

Review: Frankula (2016) - Directed by Jason Read! (February 2017)

Frankula (2017) - A campy British Vampire Comedy!
If you watch Frankula (2016) - expect to see some familiar British faces of TV and Horror: David Barry, Caroline Munro, Judy Matheson and upcoming actress Emma Dark (Seize the Night [2015]). It's a short film with a campy tone by Jason Read about Frankie Abbot who dreams of Vampires!

It's a fun little short which can be found HERE on Amazon Video. It features some nice gothic locations like graveyards and lovely looking Vampire women showing their fangs. No real gore, just British humor. Actress and Carry On Screaming! (1966) lady, Fenella Fielding also provides a voice-over in what feels like a throw-back to the old comedy series, too

Shout out to the Misty Moon Film Society. Give it a look - it's harmless fun.
