STALKER REVIEW




A young man’s budding romance is threatened when he befriends an unstable ride-share driver.


Starring: Christine Ko, Vincent Van Horn, and Michael Lee Joplin


Directed by: Tyler Savage 


Written by: Dash Hawkins, and Tyler Savage


  “Stalker” brings a whole new meaning to being stalked in this new era of technology. Andy (Vincent Van Horn) has left Texas for California, and looking to get settled in. His move is made easier when he meets Sam (Christine Ko) at a bar, and the two hit it off. They take a ride-share back to her place, and hang out a little longer. The next day he gets a call, and takes part in a quick interview for a tutoring job. Things seem to be looking up for him as he gets the job.

  Then he takes his dog for a walk to get some coffee, and runs into the ride-share driver, Roger (Michael Lee Joplin) from the previous night. The two talk, and decide to get drinks soon. It looks like Andy is off to a good start in his new home by finding a girlfriend, and new friend. However, he doesn’t realize that Roger is watching him when Andy ditches him to hang out with Sam. Roger isn't happy about this, and now is about to become a huge thorn is Andy’s side.



  Roger is about to put on a master class on how to stalk, and mess with someone’s life. He does some of the stuff one might expect like breaking into Andy’s apartment, and looking through his social media to learn about him. When the movie opens the audience sees Andy using his phone a lot, and then the audience will see why that’s important. Roger uses technology to work against Andy. He basically gains access to everything Andy has in his phone and computer like his photos, videos, bank account and more. It’s scary enough to see how easy someone can do that to another.

  Besides being tech savvy, Roger is an absolutely creepy individual, and very easy to hate. He takes way too much joy out of torturing Andy. Andy might not be the most likable guy, but the audience will probably feel sorry that he’s on the opposite end of Roger’s madness. As this plays out, the audience will await a showdown between Andy, and Roger. This has been a twisted and cruel story throughout, so of course the movie is going to end with one more heartless twist.



Sometimes good horror is made by presenting situations that are as real as possible. Whether by ride-share driver, or another random person, anyone could find themselves being stalked. One of the scariest things about “Stalker” is how easy it is for Roger to get into Andy’s personal information, and use it against him. All the audience has to do is put themselves in Andy’s shoes to see how really bad this situation is, and it doesn’t get any better in the end. Michael really does do a good job of making Roger a despicable person. This film is another reminder to not be blind to the people you surround yourself with. With that, I give it 3 pools of blood.

BLOOD PAGEANT REVIEW

 


What begins as a million-dollar reality show competition between seven beautiful women turns into a battle for like itself when one contestant uses magic to gain an edge over the competition. An ancient curse dating back to the Salem Witch Trials is unleashed and the competition becomes a pageant of death, destruction, and evil forces. Forget about who will win - who will survive?


Starring: Danielle C. Ryan, Stephen Baldwin, Snoop Dogg, Juliana Destefano, and Malea Rose


Directed by: Harvey Lowry


Written by: Chris Gilmore and Anthony J. Sands


  Not really one for pageants, but a “Blood Pageant” sounds a little more like it! Lots of pageant winners and reality stars seem like they were made for that life. At first glance, Amy (Juliana Destefano) might not seem like she fits that world, but she has a desire to be in it. She reaches out for some help from Liz (Natasha Blasick), who seems to have an unusual technique to prepare Amy for the competition. Regardless of the technique, it certainly makes Amy ready to take this competition by storm.

  She arrives at the home where the show will be shot along with the other contestants. All of them are quick to stake their claim as being the eventual winner, even to a lesser degree the ever so religious Crystal (JoAnna de Castro). Amy and Crystal do seem a little behind some of the other woman who appear more open to sucking up to the producer Barry (David Chokachi). However, no one knows it but Amy has a secret weapon that will literally eliminate the competition. 

  Anyone who channel surfs these days knows the large amount of reality/game shows to be found on tv. While they do entertain some, others wouldn’t mind seeing less of them. The movie takes aim at aspects of these kind of shows, and certainly makes light of them particularly what goes on behind the scenes. The contestants show the usual distain for each other, and are only concerned about themselves. The audience will get a lot of set up, and introduction into the reality for the early half of the movie.

  Amy might not realize what she’s doing, but horror fans will soon be clued in on what's happening here. She has a board of contestants up in her room, and they’re getting marked off quickly. The competition soon comes to an end after some ladies die while trying to win bonus points with Barry in a truly wild scene. The competition might be over, but there’s still a killer lurking around the house. It turns out there’s a lot more going on here than originally thought, and it comes to a very dramatic ending.

  Lots of reality shows go big, and this one does as well. Barry, along with the rest of the crew, do their best to stir it up with the women, and create some theatrics that should give the audience some laughs. Soon enough the laughs fade because the body count will rise. Blood is spilled, and a mystery is solved. And if that isn’t enough, Snoop Dogg, Stephen Baldwin, and some more familiar faces make an appearance. With that said, this competition is over and I give "Blood Pageant" 3 pools of blood.

SUPERDEEP REVIEW

 


A small research team went down below the surface to find out what secret the world’s deepest borehole was hiding. What they have found turned out to be the greatest threat in history. And the future of humanity is in their hands.


Starring: Milena Radulovic, Sergey Ivanyuk, and Nikolay Kovbas


Directed by: Arseny Syuhin


Written by: Samuel Stewart Hunter, and Arseny Syuhin


  Dig “Superdeep” into the earth and you’ll find things that are better off left buried. A secret medical facility has been created in one of the deepest places ever dug. While down there something has gone wrong that endangers the entire operation. Unsure of what's happened, the very intelligent Anya (Milena Radulovic) is called, and promised many great things if she can go down there and figure out what’s going on. Too bad no one tells her just how bad it truly is down there.

  Along with a group of soldiers, their helicopter lands just in time to see someone apparently trying to escape, or stop them from getting out. Either way, he’s dealt with, and their real guide is ready to take them inside. There seems to be one way in and out on an elevator that works in a particular way. It basically means once they go down there, they’ll be there for awhile. That’s fine for Anya at the start because she’s ready to investigate, but soon enough she’ll be dying for that elevator ride back to the surface.



  While watching the film horror fans will no doubt have memories of “The Thing.” Eventually the group will have to deal with some interesting looking creatures. At times they will gross out the audience, and others they will leave them in awe. The creatures get nastier as it goes on, and the final one is out of control. The special effects with the creatures is awesome from beginning to end. Anya will learn she was promised all those things because no one really expected her to make it out in one piece.

  While fans will be treated to a visual feast, their ears might not be as happy. This is a Russian film that’s dubbed, and it gets kind of tiresome at almost two hours long. There’s probably some good performances lost in there somewhere, but it’s hard to tell with the dubbing. Regardless, it’s clear to see and hear that Milena gives a great performance because she plays a smart and strong female character. Yes, she’s taken back by the madness down there, but she’s going to fight to the end. 

  Russia has been in the news a lot lately, and not for many good reasons. Too bad they don’t get more coverage of their horror films because there have been some good ones recently. The special effects here are top notched, and deserve all the credit they can get. The story is solid leading to plenty of suspense and tension as the madness builds down there. Audiences might not be sure about Anya at first, but she’ll eventually win them over. Look past the dubbing because if you enjoy horror like “The Thing” there’s a good chance you’ll like this as well. With that said, giving it anything less than 4 pools of blood would be disrespectful to the special effects alone.
