The Party Slashers Need Your Help!

Party-SlashersCarl Bachmann the writer & director of the horror-comedy, Party Slashers reached out to me to request help in promoting his Kickstarter Campaign for Party Slashers. My initial reaction was to politely decline but the more I looked at what he is doing, the prizes that are being offered, and the level of work that’s gone into the project thus far, I decided to break my own rule of not covering KickStarter projects and give this one a  chance.

Carl and his creative team are offering some amazing prizes, perhaps, the best being the opportunity to get yourself decapitated in the film. There are plenty of other prizes, as well, including custom artwork inspired by the film, signed copies of the film on DVD or blu-ray and even the chance to score an executive producer credit on the picture.

Wolf Creek 2Wolf Creek 2 begins with Mick Taylor dispensing his own unique brand of justice and then happening upon a pair of German backpackers that need to be taught a lesson. The film goes in a completely unexpected direction from there, so I will simply leave the synopsis at that.

In Wolf Creek 2John Jarratt reminds us why he was and always will be the perfect choice to play Mick Taylor. He brings the kind of flare to the role that makes fans of the emerging franchise develop an inexplicable fondness for him.

Twisted TalesTom Holland’s Twisted Tales is a series of vignettes that are introduced by Holland himself. There are nine tales in all; every one however, is bad. It pains me to be critical of a project that the legendary Tom Holland was involved with but there is just no excuse for how bad this film is.

One segment finds a man talking to his GPS, which is seemingly possessed by the spirit of his late wife, another finds a woman wanting to kill her lover, and other vignettes explore additional relationship woes, twisted magicians, the apocalypse and more. None of the segments struck a chord with me; some were less terrible than others but they were all bad. Read the rest of this entry »
