In a not too distant future, which eerily looks very similar to the late 1980’s, cyborg drones will be needed to fill a gap in the workforce for some reason or another. Inteltrax is a company that’s filling that void. A mysterious person in the company that goes by the name of Z has decided that money and glory are much more important than creating more worker bees, so he’s taken it upon himself to drug the cyborgs in order to make them perfect killing machines that get their jollys by killing the innocent people of our fair land. When Z goes to far and takes one of the scientists responsible for creating the cyborgs as a hostage, the scientist’s sister escapes so that she can get the only man on earth that can save the day – and that man is Matt Riker (Rick Gianasi). All of this plays against a subplot of the ambitious and mysterious Domina, who only wants to see Z go down in flames by the hands of her own uber cyborg. Continue reading “Mutant Hunt”
Picture this… it’s 1985 and script writers need some ideas (well, when I put it that way, it’s 2011 and script writers still need some ideas!) Halley’s Comet is coming around in a year and there’s quite a bit of mystery surrounding it. It only shows up once every 75 years, and it’s one of the few true mysteries that are still floating around in our solar system – why not write some movies about it? “Night of the Comet” already covered the zombies aspect so let’s write our script about space vampires (actually, it’s based off of a 1976 novel called “Space Vampires” of all things, but this is my review dammit so keep your hoity-toity literature insight to yourself)! We don’t want to keep the title “Space Vampires” though, it might sound too cheesy. Let’s change the title to LifeForce instead, and we’ll make the connection between vampires and Halley’s Comet down below the break. Also, be warned that some of the images below the break may be NSFW
When I saw Machete in the theater back in August they played a metric ass ton of trailers, they always do! After the trailers they played their little theater introduction and then low and behold, another trailer. This one was a little different though, it had that Grindhouse feel to it just like Machete a few years back. It showed a monster of a man, the so-called new icon in horror Victor Crowley, absolutely destroying a bunch of people who had no idea that death stood right around the corner. I looked at my friend and said “it’s a shame that’s just a fake trailer, Hatchet 2 looks like it would be great!” But why did they skip right to number 2, where was the original. A few weeks later I saw a listing for Hatchet 2 at that same theater, it was real… even though it only lasted a week on the big screen! So I had to seek out Hatchet and find out what all the hype was about.
Growing old gracefully… That doesn’t seem to happen any more these days. Everyone wants to get some kind of surgery for this, or get some kind of injection for that. Millions of doses of Botox are given each year just to make people feel younger and therefore better about themselves. Lynn Roman (Bobbie Bresee) doesn’t want to be one of those people. As a Hollywood actress, she just wants to stay working in an industry that doesn’t see her age as an asset.
