____________________________________________________________________

 

We here at Wasteland World Central would like to wish everyone a healthy and happy New Year!

 

Although things are always hectic between the October CW Show and the end of any given year, we’ve been trying to get in touch with and see if we can’t add to the Guest List for our 50th Anniversary of Night of the Living Dead Cast and Crew Reunion the past couple of months. Alas, it appears that what you see is who you’ll get. Without going into any details that will make anybody sound like they just don’t care about the fans the eleven people we have lined up is probably going to be everyone we get, and to us, there is nothing wrong with that since no other convention out there is able to get all of the Guests we have lined up.

 

Now we simply take a look at things and see if we can’t get a couple more Guests to add to the list this month to round things out or just stick with what we have and invite new faces to the 2017 Fall Show.

 

We are however ready to update a few of 16mm Films we will be screening and get some stuff posted on the CW Show web site by this weekend so take a look around when you get a few minutes and see what we have in store so far.

 

As usual, there’s not a whole helluva lot to say this month with the Holiday’s just wrapping up, so I’ll leave everyone with the usual batch of reminders and catch up next month with anything new to say about the Spring Show.

 

FRIDAY NIGHT TRIVIA: Don’t forget about our new FRIDAY NIGHT WASTELAND TRIVIA in the hotel bar starting at 10:30pm after the Vendor and Guest Room shuts down on Friday night next show. The top three teams will split $100 in cash prizes. Well, not just cash prizes for the top three teams, but bragging rights for those top teams as well. Judging by the way they like to correct anything I get wrong on the web site, CW is full of movie fans that know their stuff when it comes to trivia, so bragging rights to the top teams is most certainly something to be proud of.

 

Here are the RULES AND REGULATIONS for Friday Night Wasteland Trivia –

1.- Teams of up to six (6) players are allowed to compete, so form your team, pick a name to call yourselves, and watch a bunch of stuff between now and next April’s show.

2.- Do Not shout out any answers to the questions or risk being disqualified.

3.- Do Not use anything that can be used to cheat. No cellphones, reference material, iPad’s etc will be allowed. If we catch you looking at your phone before you turn in your answer, you just cost your team that round and zero points will be awarded.

4.- Only one answer per team allowed and you can not change your answer once you’ve turned it into the hosts / judges.

5.- Don’t answer a question and no points will be awarded, so do your best and give all the questions your best shot.

6.- Points for each question in each round will vary so some questions will be worth more than others. The game will offer everyone a chance to earn up to 100 points total, plus a bonus round. In the event of a tie at the end of the game, a tie breaker question will be asked.

7.- The decisions of the hosts / judges are final.

 

 

GRAB SOME C.W. SHOW SWAG: The cool 16 ounce Cinema Wasteland Movie and Memorabilia Expo glass and the “Wasteland is Family” t-shirt we had available at the last show are now available to order on line. You’ll find CW merchandise listed with passes and stuff on the web site, or use this handy link to order your CW Show swag today. Click Here to Order

 

TICKETS: You can grab yourself a 3-Day Pass into CW’s April 7-9, 2017 Show for only $40 if you act before 3/17/17. And a 3-Day Pass gets you in at 4:00pm on Friday, April 7th, at No Extra Charge. You can also grab Single Day Passes for only $20 each and save $5 off the at-the-door prices on Saturday between now and 3/17/17.

 

Come showtime, a 3-Day Pass will set you back $50 on Friday, which is still $25 to $50 or more less than most cons that are not named The Cinema Wasteland Movie and Memorabilia Expo charges. Friday’s day-of-show price is $20, while Saturday is $25, and Sunday is still only $15.

You can grab your passes on line by Click Here.

 

HOTEL: The one thing you can always count on is that the hotel will be sold out by show time. We take over the entire hotel, and rooms seem to fill up faster every show since the motel next door raised its rates and is no longer a significant savings over the Show Hotel. Help support the show and avoid the headache of having to stay down the road by making your room reservations today. Reserve your room through our web site, or by calling The Holiday Inn reservation line at 1-877-408-4913. Remember you MUST ask for “The Cinema Wasteland Room Rate”, or they really should tell you that they are ”sold out” and have no rooms. And PLEASE only reserve as many rooms as you plan on using.

 

 

* January is the LAST Month you can submit a Short or Feature and hope to get it screened at April’s Show, so…

 

HOW DO I SUBMIT MY MOVIE OR SHORT FILM FOR THE CW INDY FILM FEST?:

 

First Rule: Your movie or short film needs to be 100% finished before we’ll consider screening it.

 

Second Rule: The film you submit can’t be older than a year or so old or already have DVD or cable TV distribution since we’re basically trying to help independent filmmakers get the word out about their films to our attending fans.

 

Third Rule: When your movie or short film is completely finished, just send us off a screener to watch and consider. (We won’t watch a “link” on the computer since we can’t screen a “link” on the computer at the show itself.) Make sure you include contact information so we can get back to you if we do decide to screen your short or feature, and patiently wait to see if we get back to you. It’s that easy.

 

Since we’ve always supported the independent filmmaker, we don’t do things like your average every day film festival does things. Namely, we don’t charge to screen your movie or short film and just take your money and run whatever somebody sends us. We simply watch everything that is sent to us and fit as many indy films into the weekend schedule that we can squeeze in around all the other guest related movies and events that we normally cram into a Wasteland Weekend. We do keep film submissions for up to one year’s time so if we don’t screen your film or short one show, it very well could make the next show. We do watch and tend to enjoy everything we receive but please don’t take it personally if we don’t screen your submission. Chances are it just didn’t make it into the weekend schedule because we received way too many submissions in a short amount of time and/or had more films that fit a certain theme that matches the weekend we’re currently running.

 

Because we don’t charge to screen your film or short, a screening does not come with free passes into the show. A pass into the CW Show however is much cheaper than any film festival submission prices.

 

The submission cut off date for any given CW Show is two months before the event so we have time to watch and review everything we receive. We review all submissions by their post mark date, so anything received after the cut off date will only be included if we have screening time to fill.

 

OK, that’s it for me this time around.

Gross Movie Reviews #345

 

By Tim Gross

 

Gingerclown (DVD) – A film made in Budapest but takes place in Hollywood, California 1983 where a group of local high school teenagers are hanging out behind the famous Hollywood sign and they call themselves “the Wolfpack”. Of course the lonely nerd named Sam or Tully as the “Wolfpack” calls him rides by on his bike and they make him an offer to be a part of their gang “The Wolfpack”. Sam takes them up on the offer for the mere reason he likes the cute blonde Jenny. They go to an old abandoned amusement park and is told he has two hours to enter the park and come back with something to prove his effort. The strange old place has a history of mysterious deaths and fires and hasn’t been open since the 60s. Once Sam enters, Jenny follows and the two are faced with odd evil things from an evil tea kettle to an evil pile of crap, something that makes you think this flick was lost from the Charles Band’s Full Moon collection over the years. What it comes down to is the park is full of expelled demons from hell that prey upon humans that enter. It has the cast of famous genre favorites in: Lance Henriksen, Tim Curry, Brad Dourif, and Michael freakin Winslow but they are all voice overs for the characters in the park. A fun concept for a horror flick but just never reaches its potential and for that I give it 2 stars.

 

The Scribbler (DVD) – Our film begins with a woman named Suki being interviewed or interrogated by a doctor and a detective to figure out what just happened at this woman’s mentally unstable halfway house/apartments I guess. The film is based on a comic book I never heard of but sure T-shirt Joe Garcia from www.fastcustomshirts.com would know?  The film is a little ridiculous, weird, dark, and very interesting. But you need to stick with this oddity as it takes about twenty minutes to get going as it lays out some plot for you to dig into and understand the subject matter better. But Suki tells a story of how crazy people in this building are being killed and the doctor and detective know that Suki suffers from multiple personalities herself. But without trying too much more of giving the film away Suki is given an electrical device from her that is supposed to help her get rid of her multiple personalities one by one. From there it becomes a lost project from the mind of David Croenberg if possible? It stars the likes of Gina Gershon, Eliza Dushku, Billy Campbell, and Michelle Trachtenberg and no doubt will be on end of the year list for best movies of 2015 as I give it 4 stars.

 

Apocalypse Pompeii (DVD) – Asylum Entertainment once again proves nothing is off limits and tries to capitalize on the big budget piece of crap called “Pompeii” that littered theaters last year. Adrian Paul’s wife and daughter go visit the ruins and the volcano erupts and only Adrian Paul and the brilliant John Rhys-Davies can save them. Its unwatchable crap but I still watched it as I give it 0 stars.

Razor Days

Razor Days (DVD) – A long awaited project that has been years in the making from Mike Watt and Happy Cloud Pictures is making its way out on the festival circuit. The film stars Debbie Rochon as Jessamay, a disfigured woman who has survived a horrible attack of rape, torture, and cannibalism. She approaches Anita (Amy Lynn Best) who helps women defend themselves and takes interest in Jess when Jess tells her story. But Jessamay believes if she escaped then there has to be other survivors? Survivors that need to be found as they got to feel the same way she does and that is to find these horrible things or men and wipe the earth clean of them. With Anita’s help they find a woman named Reina across the state and together they become fast friends and soon share the wanting of closure and no longer of being haunted by their horrible past. This new project from Happy Cloud Pictures is much different project you are used to seeing as they go dark, very dark and miserable. The flick feels a little like “Ms. 45”, “I Spit on Your Grave”, and “They Call Her One Eye” but walks that fine line of not going too far extreme and have Debbie Rochon possibly give her best performance since “American Nightmare”. The film also has appearances from Michael Varrati, Alan Rowe Kelly, and a few other Happy Cloud Pictures regulars. As much as I really enjoyed the deep darkness and grit of this film for me at least it felt like something else was going to happen but didn’t? But do not let that stop you from checking out Mike Watt’s darkest film to date as I give it 3 out of 4 stars. For more info on the film go check out:    https://www.facebook.com/pages/Razor-Days/125372234198963?fref=ts .

 

Starry Eyes (DVD) – A young woman named Sara who is a struggling actress believes she is meant to be a big star and will eventually do anything to get there. After another rejection for the film “The Silver Scream” she takes out on herself but the people see this and believe she could be right for the part if she is willing… At first Sara turns it down but soon runs back even if it means sucking an old dude’s wiener! Even with that she must complete the transformation. Predictable flick but has some great gore but not enough for me to want to revisit the film anytime soon as I give the film 2 stars.

 

The Pyramid (DVD) – It is 2013, Cairo, Egypt, and archeologists may have stumbled upon the biggest discovery ever as they find a pyramid under the surface of the desert. Something that may predate any of the ancient pyramids. Excited to investigate it all the plug has been pulled on them as war has broke out inside Cairo. Forced to pack up the archeologists and the camera crew that is following them quickly make their way into the tomb/pyramid to investigate soon understanding they are in a maze that was constructed to keep something in? I am always a sucker for this subject matter as a horror movie but sometimes it fails and this is one of those times. It’s not horrible but with a film like “The Descent” still fresh in many horror movie fan’s minds you cannot help but comparing the two. Interesting horror film that just taken the wrong turn of how it could have developed into something far cooler as I give it 2 stars.

Pain Shack (DVD/YouTube) – Now mind you fine folks the film I watched is a rough cut that has since has a couple new scenes added and deleted in the official DVD that will be available. Anyway the film is made by the duo of Marissa and Alex Murphy. No, that isn’t Robocop Alex Murphy before you ask. But the film takes you on a long spiraling dark ride with the character Alex who believes his dream is to review music. To do this he studies YouTube and its users to come up with his own gimmick the “Noodledroop show”. In the process Alex becomes obsessed with a movie reviewer Ricky Shores and becomes abusive in his relationship with Marissa so he can achieve his ultimate goal of becoming a YouTube sensation as his followers grow or do they in this dark horror/comedy. The film runs a little long for its subject material in my opinion but I really enjoyed all the performances by all in the film and really enjoyed how Alex and Marissa filmed their characters because I believe I know some of these people currently or of at least met them on occasions at several conventions and for that kids I give the flick 2 ½ out of 4 stars.
