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
There are hundreds, if not thousands of vampire movies made every day… no seriously, there are too many to count! Some are good, some are bad. Some the vampires are perfect beings who are beautiful and glitter in the sun. Some stay more true to the myth that sunlight burns/destroys them. Basically what I’m trying to say is there is a vampire movie for everyone’s taste. I’ve already found my favorite of all time, From Dusk Til Dawn. Plus I recently purchased my second favorite, Let Me In. So why I decided to check out a friend’s NOT recommendation about a vampire movie she recently saw is well beyond my comprehension. Maybe I’m a glutton for punishment, maybe Adrian Paul as a British vampire peaked my interest. Either way, I spent 90 minutes of my life watching The Breed, from 2001.
Imagine being on set with your favorite movie director, and being able to document the process for posterity purposes, and just for fun! You would get to see a glimpse of movie magic and how things come together. You could see actors get into character, the film crew setting up for all the important shots, and the director freaking out because no one takes things as serious as he does. But what if things got a little too serious. What if something which should be enjoyable and rewarding turned deadly! What would you do as the documentarian… would you get involved or walk away?
Can you believe it’s been 4 months since our last post? We couldn’t believe it either, but real life happens. Plus let’s be honest, after churning out 31 reviews in 31 days we felt a little burned out! But we’re back with some renewed vigor. Not the vigor that will bring you 30 reviews for March, let’s just start small. To kick off March we bring you a sequel trailer to a movie we reviewed back in October, Adam Green’s Hatchet. If you’ve seen that one, and you should, then this clip needs no introduction. Victor Crowley is back, and bloodier than ever! So check this out and look for the review shortly. Plus check back for a review from our friend Scott Feinblatt’s Outtake Reel, coming this week!
