Read our thoughts about movies, actors, dvds, cinema etc.
Every month we have got an overview of the movies we watched.
A few weeks ago we were asked by Michael McQuown if we wanted to review the movie The Dark Tapes. He is the writer and co-director of the movie. The movie was a big success on the festival circuit.It was nominated for 61 awards from 30 festivals. The movie has also been nominated for a Rondo Hatton Award for Best Independent Feature.
We checked out the trailer of the movie and discussed it within our team. We liked the trailer and were interested. We love watching horror movies and this one looked promising. So Sigmund and Carola watched the movie.
It's a bit hard to describe the movie without giving away too much. But here we go! The Dark tapes is a horror anthology and consists of 1 main story and 3 smaller stories. It's a found footage movie where handheld camera's and webcams are being used.
Let's start with the second story (The Hunters and the Hunted), since the first one is the main story. This story is about a couple who just bought a new house. They're very happy with their new home. But soon they realize that not everything is as great as it seemed to be.. Strange noises. Strange voices. Strange things happen. They get scared and decide it's time to find some help!
A while ago, a request landed in our mailbox! We were asked to review the movie The Sex Addict! We all took a look at the trailer and Liv and I decided we would watch the movie and write a review. We'll start by telling you a bit more about this movie! It's an Indie feature film and mostly improvised. The movie is already available for pre order and will be released on DVD, blu-ray, VOD and Itunes on April 28th. The Sex Addict is written and directed by Amir Mo.
Amir also plays main protagonist Rex. Rex is a sex addict. In the movie, he's followed by Suzanna Murphy (Valerie Tosi) for a documentary about sex addicts. Suzanna is a phd student and wants to be a sex therapist. That's why she's doing a documentary on sex addicts.
The movie starts with Suzanna. She's going to meet Rex for the first time. The only thing she knows is that he's a sex addict. She's excited to start with her documentary. However, she's also a bit suspicious. She was going to meet a sex addict.. Armed with a rape whistle, unshaven armpits and a camera she heads out to meet Rex.
What she gets is a boy.. I was surprised and thought, 'Is that Rex'? Luckily, Suzanna is not that naive and send him away with the words 'Goodbye Disney'. At that point, we get to meet Rex. Besides a sex addict, he's also a bit strange, hotheaded and arrogant. Suzanna and Rex start the documentary adventure and they're in for a lot of surprises.
As you might have seen already, we visited Weekend of Hell last weekend! As usual, we had a great time. One of the guests at Weekend of Hell was Linnea Quigley. Linnea is an American Film producer, actress, model, singer and author! She's also well known as 'scream queen' in many many horror movies. One of her best known roles is the one as Trash in The Return of the Living Dead. I've also seen her as Heather in Savage Streets (together with Linda Blair). But there's so much more! Just to name a few: Don't Go Near the Park, Creepozoids, Night of the Demons, Nightmare on Elm Street 4: the Dream Master, Corpses are Forever, Zombiegeddon, Where the Dead Go to Die, Nightmare Sisters and lots and lots more! Of course we attended her panel at Weekend of Hell and I have to say it was great! She's a lovely person. She told very enthusiastically about her roles. And even showed us some typical screams...
We already did quite some articles about quotes since we started. We wrote about some of our favorite Series and Movie Quotes and we even did a quote challenge. As you may know we also love to do Guess the Movie Quizes. Well in today's article mix it up and made a Guess the Movie Quote! Carola and I put on our best acting faces and we made you a video. Yes, these are our acting faces, so now you know why we write about movies instead of playing in them.
It's very simple: in the video we do some quotes and all you have to do is to guess the movie and write your answers in comment section. We only did a few this time, so it shouldn't be too hard. Let's do this!
In preparation for a convention, Carola and I always like to watch some movies and series of guests that are attending. This weekend we are going to Weekend of Hell in Germany. In preparation for this decided to buy the DVD of Savage Streets, since it features Linda Blair. Unfortunately shortly after we watched the movie she canceled her appearance at Weekend of Hell. But after that Weekend of Hell did announce Linnea Quigley (who you also might know from Return of the Living Dead) as one of the guests, and she also plays a role in this film.
The plot of the movie is pretty simple. The movie starts with a group of girls being harassed by some punks. They almost run over one of the girls with their car. The girls decide to take revenge on these guys and literally trash their car. But these guys don't like to be messed around with and want to get back at these girls. Heather (played by Linnea Quigley) is also part of the group of girls. She is the sister of Brenda (played by Linda Blair). Heather is deaf, and also quite shy. One day at school she is all alone in the gym. The punks also show up and violently gang rape Heather. Later on, the punks also kill one of the other girls who happens to be pregnant. Brenda is furious and goes out to kill these guys one by one.
