LA Horror Review: “In Defense of Traditional Marriage”

Marriage is scary, everybody knows that.  And as if there isn’t enough on our plates when dealing with our nuptials, some feel the need to turn marriage into one of those hot button issues.  After all, while marriage is a magical time in our lives it’s also a very controversial issue that our society needs to address.  Writer/Director Thom Newell throws his horrifying two cents into the marriage debate with his hilarious short film, “In Defense of Traditional Marriage.”

Ahhh, true love.  This is a horror film that works on a variety of levels.  First of all, great hook.  For a moment I questioned if I was even watching a horror, then blammo, it’s on.  Thom Newell’s over-the-top satire works because while I don’t necessarily know what the piece is trying to say about traditional marriage as we know it, I do know that it’s damn gory and hella funny, so we’ll all just agree to get along on this issue for now.

Excellent use of gore as well with a terrific design as well, this is definitely one of the most beautiful brides I’ve seen in quite some time.  And lastly, the cast does a terrific job.  Some genuinely funny moments that made me laugh out loud throughout.

Pass me a kleenex…I always DIE at weddings!

Emily Eden Films & LAHorror.com Present: “The Chronicles of Ruth”

Horror lovers!  I couldn’t be more excited to announce that LAHorror.com is teaming up with Emily Eden Films & visionary Writer/Director Brialynn Massie to Co-Produce / Co-Star in an amazing new Web Series called “The Chronicles of Ruth” (#TCOR)!  This is a project that I’m extremely excited about, and if you’re into HORROR, POSSESSION, HELLFIRE & more, then you should be pretty damn excited too!

“How do you save someone from Hell when you can’t even save yourself?”

#TCOR follows “Ruth,” a young teen who struggles with depression, leading her astray into hell, and her journey to escape this darkness to warn her family of the impending apocalypse.  It’s one of the most ORIGINAL and EPIC horror scripts I have read in quite some time, Bria Lynn Massie has really created a really special story and assembled a cast that is incredibly talented and diverse, including Chris Kato, Jocelyn Watts, Bobbie Lee, Chris Pardal, and Daniele De Leggia, to name just a few.  We need your help getting #TCOR produced!

10378243_327703070748986_3586191211176017059_n-1

This is a story that’s extremely accessible to horror fans of all types.  What initially attracted me to this project was not only the scope and depth of the characters, but the real nasty horror elements that prevail throughout.  Whenever I read a horror script, there’s nothing that I love more than the moments that can make even me cringe, and #TCOR is full of them!  This is a seriously ambitious project but I have no doubt that with this cast & creative team the product will be incredible!  Here’s a small glimpse into the madness that we’re going to create…

There are a lot of fundraising campaigns out there, and this is one that you should strongly consider backing.  We’re a young, hungry and enthusiastic team set out to create an epic horror drama, filled with SCARES and CARNAGE, but also filled with inspiration and heart.  We are offering some awesome perks for backers and we’re planning several charitable events to help pay it forward (we’ll keep you posted on the details and how you can help as well)!  We cannot do it without you.

Please, help us make “The Chronicles of Ruth” a reality by donating, sharing our campaign or simply “liking” #TCOR on Facebook and following #TCOR on Twitter!  This is a project you’ll definitely want to keep up with, so keep checking back for more info!  Thanks for the support, Horror Lovers!

H E R E T I C: A One of a Kind Live Horror Experience

HereticHaunted houses have become a lucrative field.  According to the Haunted House Association, haunted attractions pull in over a billion dollars annually in the United States.  Most of these are family attractions such as corn mazes and hay rides that may have a few actors or props to provide a few jump-scares for you.  These are decidedly PG-rated affairs and generally fall more toward the “creepy and spooky” level rather than anything genuinely scary.

Of course, there are the large scale theme park attractions such as “Knott’s Scary Farm” and “Universal Halloween Horror Nights” that provide professional level makeup and effects.  There is a higher gore factor and more implied violence.  These are the PG-13 style attractions.

And then there are the “extreme” haunts.  In attractions such as “Blackout” and “Alone,” you go through alone and must sign a waiver.  Full contact is allowed and you are placed in extreme situations involving sexual situations and psychological stress.  You are provided a safe word to cease the interactions.  Definitely hard R ratings here, possibly drifting toward the NC-17 if we continue our MPAA analogy.

H E R E T I C would be the ratings equivalent of a 70s style X.  The MPAA would quite simply refuse to give it a rating and would possibly contact the state and local authorities to round up the responsible parties.  Part performance art, part horror film, it is not meant to be scary.  It is meant to be fucking terrifying.

And it’s free.  But there’s a catch: you have to be invited.

Heretic 3

Chances are, if you’re on the invite list, you’ve already encountered the creative mastermind behind H E R E T I C: Adrian Marcato.  Marcato is a makeup and effects artist for movies such as “Dead Sea” and “House of Manson.”  And for the last year, he has been causing people to scream out designated safe words under the banner of H E R E T I C.

I first encountered Marcato at “ScareLA” where he was running a five minute demo version of       H E R E T I C.  I stepped behind a curtain into pitch black and was immediately accosted by a demonic figure.  I didn’t even notice the blood on my clothes until an hour later.  It was truly bizarre and terrifying, even in the middle of a crowd of people.  Marcato promised that this was just a taste of the full event.

The following is an e-mail interview with Marcato conducted just after the conclusion of the latest H E R E T I C event: P A R A T O X I C.

Paul Stephen Edwards: Let’s start with your background in practical FX & makeup.  What’s your origin story?

Adrian Marcato: I have been in FX for five years now. I actually started taking screenwriting classes and moved into shooting my short films. The first one I wrote, shot, directed and did the FX for by just learning on the spot. The name of the film was “Her Dead Flesh,” [and] it was about a girl that on the way home was raped and killed by a creature (it’s revealed later a vampire). She comes back to life murdering and drinking blood. That was my first FX job turning my classmate (now wife) into a rotted vampire that masturbates with bloody severed limbs. I did FX for friends and eventually landed my first horror film “Hatchet 3” as an intern.

PSE: And what led toward the transition to live performance?

AM:  Prior to that, I had worked at “Knotts Scary Farm” as a monster and security. I worked four years on that haunt, learning by watching the production from all sides. In 2011, I started working FX for the “LA Haunted Hayride” and that was great, because I was allowed to be creative with the make-up.

In 2013, I wrote a film called H E R E T I C, shopped it around, and actually took meetings with a few production companies–a few minor and one major. They passed on it, so I decided to just do it myself, and it was during the casting for it I got bored after seeing like 100 people.  So I decided to scare the actors coming in by presenting a disturbing scene they had to act out…it was then I decided to develop It into a haunted house. I tested the material out on myself first which was a really brutal experience.

PSE:  What was brutal about it?

AM:  I wanted to see how real I could make it. I asked three close friends to participate as my monsters. I was tied to a chair in my basement and I could got not get out of my restraints. I then told them to lay five weapons on the ground in front of me: a bat, a knife, a metal pipe, a rope, and gloves.  They were told by me that I had to choose three out of five and it [would] be random. I was very scared when the blindfold went over my eyes. I chose the gloves first by pointing blindly and one of my friends put sheer latex gloves on and for 10 seconds hit me very hard. The knife was picked next … I was slightly cut. Nothing heavy, but the last cut was deep. I called safety and it was over.

Never again.  That was very intense, but it helped me to create a vicious design without going to those extremes.

PSE:  But H E R E T I C is pretty extreme.  I mean, as far as haunts go.  What was the first version like?  How many attended and what was the feedback that you got?

AM:  It was in my house. We gutted it and made it very dark and foggy. We had four rooms, and it started in a very small room that was enclosed with two doors: one into the room and another that lead into the house. You were greeted by a very creepy pale woman that did not talk to you but played a recording. She wanted you to help her find her daughter’s body that was supposedly in the house. She also explained that filthy, sick people were in the house, mentally deranged and mad.  She opened the door. The dim light and fog spilled into the small room. She slowly pushed you in and closed the door saying there is only one way out.

Once in the hallway, you could not see anything. A figure slowly became clear calling you down the hallway toward it. As you got closer, the things inside would pull you into the dark rooms and begin torturing and violently throwing you around in a padded room. Guests were turned upside down and forced to watch disgusting sexual exorcisms performed on violent possessed victims.  The end is secret but we only had seven people go through and each one LOVED IT. One guy said he was so scared he was in bed for three days after leaving.

PSE:  It’s that commitment to supernatural horror that separates H E R E T I C  from other individualized horror experiences such as “Blackout” and “Alone.”  How has the story evolved, and what are the challenges and differences writing a live experience versus a movie screenplay?

AM:  I wanted to treat it like a franchise, so every sequel to H E R E T I C was different, but held some components from the original story. The second one was [about] how the daughter was murdered and how the mother was drugged and used to procure other girls. The third was the secret group that did horrible things in honor of their demigod MASOCH.  H E R E T I C 4 took our guests even further to the process of becoming part of the secret cult, and part five, which was our last show, dealt with disease as worship.  A man from the secret cult is exiled so he starts his own religion based on a disease he creates.

Writing a live experience is just taking out all the cool elements of the story and shaping it into a shorter almost theatrical feel but keeping the viciousness of a horror experience.

Heretic dead_girl_6328

PSE: Speaking of franchises, you’re moving into new territory with Midnight Killer.  What’s the story with that?

AM:  It’s much different than              H E R E T I C and I’m very excited for people to go through it. I took some very cool serial killer movies and a haunt and mixed them together. Guests won’t know what’s coming …it’s as brutal as
H E R E T I C but [there’s] more interaction with my main character. The story revolves around a man named Lucas Merrill: a large presence that takes you on a short ride through hell.

PSE:  So what have you learned about fear from this experiment and where do you hope to take it?

AM:  Fear is something that’s inside everyone. It’s buried for most people.  During my last              H E R E T I C one guy said I tapped into his childhood with one scene and he freaked out …I hope to take people places they’ve never expected.

VHS Spotlight: “Evils of the Night”

Our dear friend and contributor in horror Alex Ray returns, this time with a VHS Spotlight that’s out of this world!  We love to feature flicks that aren’t widely available to the masses on LAHorror.com, so be sure to check out our growing collection of VHS Spotlights on our Behead-itorials page and be sure to drop us a line to let us know which ones you’d like to see!  Enjoy horror lovers!

VHS SPOTLIGHT: EVILS OF THE NIGHT

1984 * 85 minutes * Lightning Video * Directed by Mardi Rustam

evils_01_coverIf you’re trying to find the worst 80s horror VHS box art out there, look no further. The movie itself is a crazy good time—but the box makes it look like Lovers Retreat, the 1989 romantic dramedy starring Bobcat Goldthwait and Daphne Zuniga (this film does not exist). Yes, it tried harder to make me not watch it than The Witching (I defy anyone to rent a horror movie adorned with the bespectacled visage of Orson Welles). Point is: despite a complete lack of salesmanship on the part of Lightning Video—a rare oversight for a company that churned out a zillion lurid covers back in the day—I consider it a high value asset to my VHS collection.

And, okay, yes—there is a DVD. But good luck finding one for less than fifty bucks. It seems the fine folks at Shriek Show woefully underestimated demand and now it’s as tough to find as Shadow: Dead Riot is easy to come by. And that’s just downright shameful. But you know what? We still got some sweet ol’ magnetic tape to fall back on.

This really is a movie that should be seen on VHS anyway. It epitomizes what’s great about cheesy 80s horror—totally un-ironic and self-serious, but comprised of ridiculous and disparate elements. No matter how many times I put this in the VCR (I’m up to three), I feel like I’m missing something (and lemme tell ya: this ain’t exactly Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy when it comes to plot). I think I can summarize it somewhat concisely: beach bums and babes become the target of aliens who need their young people blood to survive. But if you start asking questions—like, any questions—things get complicated.

For instance, how did the mechanics get recruited to kidnap teenagers for the aliens? And why, with their spaceships and laser rings, would the aliens need a couple grumpy old men to do said kidnapping for them? How did the aliens come to inhabit a hospital? What happened to those lady aliens after they made bedroom eyes at each other for thirty seconds? Yeah, Evils offers up quite a few stumpers.

The trick is to not think too hard about it and just go along for the ride (to the hospital with the mechanics who are selling you to the aliens). You do that, and Evils of the Night becomes Goods of the Day. Or Night, still. If you watch it at night. I don’t judge.

evils_02_blackbgMuch as we all love how meta and self-aware everything has become, it’s sometimes nice to go back to a time when movies didn’t seem to know they were bad. Who can say—maybe Mardi Rustam thought he was making the ultimate satire, but he definitely fooled me. The charm of Evils lies in just how blissfully sincere it is about being pretty dumb. By any quantifiable standards it’s a terrible movie, and yet I’ve still watched it three times. So what does that tell you? Yeah, I don’t know either.

Look. It’s silly. It’s fun. Joe Bob would definitely say check it out, if you know what I mean (boobs). With the bland box art, you might just be able to convince a normal person to watch it. Take all that into consideration, and I think you can see the good in Evils of the Night (I do love it when titles lend themselves to this kind of scintillating wordplay).

Postscript: A random Amazon check has revealed that this is going to get a re-release on October 14! Now the masses will have easy access to this cinematic gem. But while the DVD may be of higher quality and have better box art (because it couldn’t possibly be worse), I must say I’ll always be partial to my VHS. However, I’ll concede that it’s worth seeing any way you can. And if you can’t wait that long, well, there’s an ex-rental with your name on it somewhere.

“Bunnyman 3” – Coming Soon!

Brutality.  Blood.  Babes.  Bunnies.  No, I’m not talking about Bugs, I’m talking about Bunnyman, THE horror bunny, and he’s back again in the third installment of the cult horror series created by filmmaker Carl Lindbergh.

bunnyman3

Raising havoc and murdering many in his demented quest for carnage, this Bunny is no fucking joke, and with the release of “Bunnyman Massacre” (AKA “Bunnyman 2”) on DVD as well as “Bunnyman 3” in post production, fans of killer bunnies and horror are in for a  happy, or hoppy, horror show.

The Bunnyman trilogy is bizarre hillbilly horror, the type of movie that will get under your skin and make you feel pretty damn uncomfortable.  What this trilogy offers is an intriguing horror villain, the Bunnyman, and his travels through the backwoods slashing anybody that comes in his way.  But that being said, he isn’t just another slasher killer in a mask.  Bunnyman is human, after all, and his adventures often focus on the demented company he keeps, rather than the victims that fall into his web.  Essentially, there is more behind the mask and floppy ears that meets the eye.

The third installment of this franchise looks incredibly promising and shows what indie horror filmmakers can do on an ultra low budget.  Lead by the talent of actors Omari Washington, Marshall Hilton and the return of Joshua Lang as Bunnyman, this flick looks like it could be the best of the trilogy, or potentially the next step in a much larger franchise.  With some amazing cinematography, a plethora of victims (which may or may not include this very horror blogger), accompanied by the bizarre vision of Lindbergh, I honestly can’t wait to see how this flick turns out.  This is going to be one hell of a twisted flick.  Don’t believe me?  Watch the trailer and you’ll know what I mean.

Be sure to grab your copy of “Bunnyman“, as well as the second installment, “Bunnyman Massacre“!  “Bunnyman Massacre” was recently featured on our films we are DYING to see, and we interviewed director Carl Lindbergh about part 2 here!  Horror lovers, check it!

“Reality” – A New Web Series from Ready Freddy Films

realityposterReality television.  It’s everywhere nowadays.  “The Bachelor,” “Millionaire Matchmaker,” “Sister Wives,” just to name a few, have taken over the airwaves and given us some unforgettable (and often unbearable) moments that make even this horror lover cringe.  Every season there’s a new gimmick, a new dating craze and of course a new babe (or stud) that’s looking to find their soulmate and live happily ever after.  And in Ready Freddy Films‘ new web series/reality TV show “Reality,” we are shown this familiar premise with a terrifying spin.  One man, eight girls, one elimination each episode.  But I’m not talking about red roses or tiki torches, because in this show elimination means brutal death, and the winner gets to spend the rest of her days with Rusty Polar, the psychopathic killer who’s searching for his soulmate…

A horror reality TV show is so refreshing, and the execution by this cast and crew, led by creator and leading man Dustin Puehler, is nearly flawless.  This really feels like a poppy reality TV show, but even better than that, it feels like a slimy, freaky torture flick.  We get glimpses into the lives and pasts of these characters in the ways only a bubbly reality show could do, and I honestly feel invested to find out who wins it all.  And just like any reality television show, it’s full of humor (albeit DARK), raw human emotion and plenty of backstabbing surprises…

We had a chance to chat with Puehler about the series, his “bachelor” Rusty Polar, as well as some other fun stuff!  Check it out, horror lovers!

LAHorror:  Do you think that there’s any HORROR in today’s actual reality TV??

Dustin Puehler:  Definitely. The way you have major networks manipulating image and reinforcing stereotypes, while making tons of money, can be quite horrific to see how they paint someone to create entertainment, especially when it is the “girls chasing the guy” format.  They drink people up and just wait for them to do something that they can turn into drama or better yet humiliating.

LAHorror:  Reality TV shows, in particular dating shows, have a “bachelor” type character that runs the show. Tell us about Rusty Polar.  How is it playing this character who does some pretty nasty things to these women?

DP:  Exhausting. I wanted to emulate the process of reality TV, so I would set up these scenes and we would do 6-7 minutes at a time.  Making it as brutal as possible and absolutely no sarcastic satire. It was through the edit that I wanted to force myself to find those moments and get into that state of mind to exploit this images with reality show editing techniques.

LAHorror:  How did you pitch this project to your actresses? It’s horror, no doubt, but there’s a lot of VERY dark humor.  Tiffany (Tiffany Gollinger) is really good, by the way. I’m rooting for her to win the competition.

DP:  I was very lucky to have such an amazing cast!  They all went for it pretty easily and understood the vision of the piece.  I won’t say who wins, but I’m very proud of the way the show wraps up!

LAHorror:  How much of the show is scripted?  It feels really natural.

DP:  As the writer too, almost all my lines are scripted. The settings, the camera work, and the structure was all laid out. There was a line thrown to the girls for narrative purposes here and there, but they are all reactionary to my lines. They did a great job embodying their characters through improvising!

LAHorror:  How would you compare “Reality” to some of Ready Freddy Films’ other horror projects?

DP:  Most of my horror ideas (“Spots,” “Caleb,” “Cutie“) are very slow, brooding, and character based to get any message across, where “Reality” really needs weird tonal shifts to play up the satire thats intended. It was interesting to craft scenes where we would create moment to laugh with, but then follow it up with a dark horror element, then remind you of what you are watching to break the laughter.  It is an interesting balancing board.

The remaining five episodes of “Reality” will be premiering throughout August, so pick your favorite contestant and enjoy the ride!

Slasher Studios is Bringing a Christmas to Dismember!

I know it’s only July, but it’s never too early to start thinking about Christmas.  The presents, the love of family and friends, the stockings, and of course the bloody, gory MURDERS!  At least that’s what Slasher Studios has in store for their second feature film, “Dismembering Christmas,” which is in it’s critical last weeks of it’s kickstarter campaign!

dismemberingposter

We are major fans of what these guys do, not only because of their die-hard love for all things slasher, but because they’re unbelievably engaging with fans and encourage everyone to get involved in the slasher fun.  Open auditions to the public, fan contests to create their poster designs, as well as a lot of unique and awesome kickstarter rewards for backers, including but not limited to the first ever Slasher Studios Blu Rays, weapons from the film, IMDB credits and even the opportunity to put your own original art in the movie itself.

We were big fans of their short flick “Teddy” and their debut feature film “Don’t Go to the Reunion” and now their back, teaming up with director Austin Bosely, to film what Kevin Sommerfield (writer, producer) calls “the most grisly script Slasher Studios has ever written.”  We had a chance to catch up with Kevin and Austin and discuss this film that will be shooting in Wisconsin early next year!  Check it out Holiday Horror lovers!

kevin

Kevin Sommerfield (writer, producer)

a

Austin Bosley (Director, Actor)

LAHorror:  First of all, I have to ask what you guys are asking for for Christmas this year??

Austin Bosely:  A ticket to Wisconsin.

Kevin Sommerfield:  Lots and lots of slasher movies. The same thing that’s been on my wish list since I was 7.

LAHorror:  “Dismembering Christmas” is joining a group of awesome slashers that take place around the holidays.  What are some of your favorite holiday horror flicks?

 

 

KS:  The original “Black Christmas” is one of my all time favorite slashers. “Silent Night Deadly Night” is a hell of a lot of fun as well.  For guilty pleasures, definitely “Jack Frost” and “Santa’s Slay.”

LAHorror:  Why did you decide to write a Christmas slasher Kevin?  How long has this been in the works??

KS:  I started writing “Dismembering Christmas” with Steve Goltz (co-writer) late last year, actually right around Christmas time. We always wanted to see a “Friday the 13th” film set around the winter season. Fun characters, wintery deaths, etc. This film captures that same spirit while adding the atmosphere of the holiday season.

LAHorror:  Adding a different type of holiday cheer, no doubt.

AB:  Holiday fear.*kickstarter

LAHorror:  Austin, when did you come on board? I love your style, your short film “Tahorror” was badass.  What is your game plan when looking at a script like this?

AB:  I came on board only a few weeks ago, actually. Just before initial casting closed.  I read the script a couple weeks before I was on board to direct and I really enjoyed it.   It definitely has a wintery “Friday the 13th” vibe to it and I couldn’t be more excited to bring that across in the final product.  If it does, it’s gonna be a lot of fun.

LAHorror:  Kevin, your flicks always have some great slasher deaths, what kind of GORE can “Dismembering Christmas” viewers hope for in their stockings??

KS:  All deaths are somehow connected to either the winter season or Christmas itself. Lots of carnage from beginning to end with each death hopefully topping the ones that come before it.

LAHorror:  How about your final girl, Kelli Anderson? Is she tough enough to handle this killer??

AB:  Oh yes.




  I mean…who said she’s the final girl?

KS:  She’s going to be a fighter and someone the audience is definitely going to want to root for. That is if she makes it to the end…

LAHorror:   Since you finished up “Don’t Go To The Reunion,” how do you feel heading into your second feature slasher film?

KS:  I’m really proud of this script and I’m loving the cast and crew we have lined up. With Austin’s unique vision, I think this is going to end up being Slasher Studios’ best yet.

LAHorror:   I totally forgot, your fan created posters are awesome!! Slasher Studios is super engaging with their fans, which is great.

KS:  Thanks! We try to involve everyone.  I mean we wouldn’t be making movies without the support of the slasher community.  Horror is a family first and foremost.  It is also a family that I am honored to be a part of.

So bring your holiday FEAR over to the Slasher Studios “Dismembering Christmas” kickstarter now, and ensure that this will be a BLOOD RED Christmas!

Be sure to keep up with Slasher Studios on Facebook!  You can also follow Kevin Sommerfield and Austin Bosely on Twitter.
