Gross Movie Reviews #465

 

Sewer City Massacre (DVD/YouTube) – The film declares in the opening credits that it is a film made with no script, no prep, NO BUDGET, and a week to make it! They came up with a story about a serial killer who comes through the toilets of residents in Sewer City and kill them. The mayor wants to run for a third term and needs this killer caught so he hires a homeless person who carries a plunger as his weapon of choice. The hobo has many run-ins with the killer with not a ton of luck but in the end good overcomes evil… maybe. An entertaining concept that gets old halfway through the film, but kudos for the people behind it seeing it completely through as I give it 1 ½ stars.

 

Hacked Horror Film Massacre (DVD/YouTube) – This ‘massacre’ title claims to be based on individuals who hacked into Hollywood studios computer systems to release a bunch of unreleased horror films. These projects were just sitting around and fall under a loop hole that makes them public domain once they hacked and placed out there? Most of it is more like random clips of monsters, horrible title sequences, and TV show ideas. I gave the film a fair shot but this was bad idea folks. I was having trouble getting through watching this uneventful film as I give it a ½ star.

 

Beach Massacre at Kill Devil Hills (DVD) – So actress Sarah French and a quick cameo from Dawna Lee Heising are wasted in this bad slasher film. Stacy and friends head out for the weekend to the cabin for some fun. The group is trying to help Stacy as her abusive ex-husband is being released from prison the same weekend. They just wanna show their support, drink, and have fun. As you wait almost 90% of the film for the ex to show up only to die of a quick death the filmmakers fill up the film with a lot of crap. Crap that includes two strangers: one being the horrible new mail girl for Joe Bob Briggs being nice and friendly until they get the group to play a game. The movie is very disjointed and feels like there may have been a few different scripts at play here. If anything I almost forgot I watched this movie already as I give 0 stars.

 

Teenage Zombies (DVD) – A hilarious late 50s flick where teenagers just wanna water ski but stumble upon an island they never seen before. The teenagers find a woman who claims she never leaves the island. But the teenagers soon discover neither will they as the woman just happens to be a valuable doctor who is doing secret research on prisoners. She now has the teenagers in her clutches and plans using her new formula of nerve gas on them. They all are just experiments to her. Even the teenagers do the right thing it comes down to the teenagers vs. the good doctor. A forgotten but funny drive-in flick that doesn’t ask you to think too much to enjoy it as I give it 2 stars.

Bed of the Dead (DVD) – Two couples head to the local sex club to rent a room and have their foursome between friends. Once there at the club they come to find out they are booked but the club has a room that is under renovation that are able to buy their way in. The four get into this large amazing bed and the guys eagerly wait for the girls to get started but something happens and freaks the girls out. Night of debauchery is over but the horror is about to begin as the four don’t know the evil history of the bed. One by one each is lured to leave the bed; if they do they die a horrible death. Now a burned out detective is trying to put the pieces together after he receives a weird text on a phone he finds at the crime scene. Spoiler alert after ten minutes you know what is going to happen but this movie is actually very interesting and surprised me despite knowing the ending. Another example of keeping the movie idea simple and not overthinking a movie idea that should not be this good. Give it a watch folks as you won’t be disappointed with this evil bed flick I give 3 stars too.

The Slit Mouthed Woman (DVD/YouTube) – The excellent Dustin Wayde Mills has a new short film that is blessed with the talented Erin R. Ryan who is an absolute joy to watch in movies. The story is about two women discussing an urban legend they may or may not have seen in an alley. The legend is about a beautiful woman who was horribly disfigured by her husband for an affair. Now she comes to haunt the two women asking them, “Am I beautiful?” To me the cool short film feels like a tale of horror meets an episode of “The Hitchhiker” or “Red Shoe Diaries”. I give the short film 3 ½ out of 4 stars as I believe Dustin is one of the few that is blessed with great filmmaking talent and always has me wondering what will his mind come up with next for independent film fans?

Lords of Chaos (On Demand) – Rory Culkin portrays Euronymous from the band Mayhem, who as a teenager wanted to change the music landscape, do something outside of the norm. He claimed to have come up with Norwegian Black Metal with his band Mayhem. The band gains a quick cult following but the lead singer commits suicide and things begin to get out of control when churches begin to burn in Norway. An interesting story about a boy wanting to do be different and what he did with his short life.  If you were a metal fan you heard stories of the ‘black metal’ scene in Norway in the 90s. I give the black metal flick 3 stars.

The next Grossfest announcement

0

For our next announcement is possibly one of the most interesting independent filmmakers I have had the pleasure of meeting and his work is amazing. This person dabbles in all phases of filmmaking and has directed over 25 movies so far. This filmmaker has made a holiday film “Easter Casket” to something completely unusual in “Her Name Was Torment 1 and 2” to one of my favorite independent horror films of all time in “The Puppet Monster Massacre”. He is currently working on the film “Slaughterhouse Slumber Party”. It absolutely makes me ecstatic to introduce yinz to a multi-talented filmmaker in Dustin Wayde Mills!

Quick Info:

Dustin Mills Productions, the production house that brought you THE PUPPET MONSTER MASSACRE and EASTER CASKET, is proud to present the trailer debut for their upcoming horror extravaganza SLAUGHTERHOUSE SLUMBER PARTY.

Synopsis:

A group of gorgeous gal pals are horrified when one of their friends dies in a tragic naked pillow fight accident during their annual Slumber Party. Fearing legal repercussions, the ladies dump her body in a swamp and forge a runaway letter. Years later, the girls reunite to boob it up one more time with a saucy Slumber Party for the ages, only to have their party pooped by the vengeful spirit of their dear departed friend. Trapped by magic, surrounded by evil, and very underdressed, will they survive the night? Or will this Slumber Party become a Slaughterhouse?

Expanded Info:

Dustin Mills Productions, the production house that brought you THE PUPPET MONSTER MASSACRE and EASTER CASKET, is proud to present the trailer debut for their upcoming horror extravaganza SLAUGHTERHOUSE SLUMBER PARTY. This is DMP’s most ambitious project yet, with a cast of both new and familiar faces and incredible makeup and effects by Marcus Koch (MOHAWK, WE ARE STILL HERE, the AMERICAN GUINEA PIG series) and Dustin Mills himself. DMP is running a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter from July 8th through August 7th, and backers get immediate access to the full uncensored proof-of-concept trailer.

 

The trailer was shot by Mills and the cast over the course of a weekend with everyone volunteering their time, a testament both to everyone’s excitement about the potential of the project and the insane pace at which Mills works. SLAUGHTERHOUSE SLUMBER PARTY merges influences from classic cult horror movies like SLUMBER PARTY MASSACRE and HARD TO DIE to colorful supernatural comedies like GHOSTBUSTERS and BEETLEJUICE with a faux-documentary approach à la WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS. The resulting concept trailer alone would be off the charts on Joe Bob Briggs’s “high points,” packed as it is with nude women and copious gore. The film’s comic asides set SLAUGHTERHOUSE SLUMBER PARTY apart from an independent horror landscape overflowing with self-serious, mean-spirited slashers and samey zombie movies.

 

For the proposed feature, Mills is joining forces once again with effects wizard Marcus Koch. Koch has an impressive track record providing effects work in dozens of films ranging from projects like MOHAWK and WE ARE STILL HERE to extreme underground horror in the AMERICAN GUINEA PIG series and Mills’s HER NAME WAS TORMENT films. The film’s cast consists largely of faces familiar to indie horror fans including Brittany Blanton (DON’T FUCK IN THE WOODS, KILL DOLLY KILL), Joni Durian (HAUNTED HOUSE ON SORORITY ROW, HER NAME WAS TORMENT 2), Kayla Elizabeth (BLOOD RITUAL, DON’T FUCK IN THE WOODS 2), Roni Jonah (HI-8, VOLUMES OF BLOOD), Haley Jay Madison (HEADLESS, HUNTERS, IN MEMORY OF), and Erin R. Ryan (BABYSITTER MASSACRE, APPLECART, DEVIL’S TRAIL).

 

Since releasing his debut feature THE PUPPET MONSTER MASSACRE in 2010, Dustin Wayde Mills has directed over a dozen feature films ranging from the Troma-esque insanity of EASTER CASKET to bleak extreme horror in the HER NAME WAS TORMENT films and even some more family-friendly genre fare with HALLOWEEN SPOOKIES. He has also worked on visual effects and makeup for films such as SUPER TASK FORCE ONE, HARVEST LAKE, SPACE BABES FROM OUTER SPACE, and HOVER in addition to his own films. SLAUGHTERHOUSE SLUMBER PARTY is by far Mills’s most ambitious single feature project to date, melding a wide array of his influences and interests into one wildly over-the-top comedic thrill ride.
