Oh what wonderful silliness! It is exactly what I expected from The Asylum, and starring Caspar Van Dien. Queen Snow White and princesses, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, and Rapunzel, along with Red Riding Hood, are the Avengers, who must fight Rumpelstiltskin and the Big Bad Wolf, after they’ve been transported to the modern world, in this “suspend your disbelief and just go with it” flick. It’s not overly memorable, but has some decent make up, gore effects, and in general isn’t too bad for an Asylum movie. If you decide to check this out, Lou Ferrigno, as Iron John, is the best part.
An indie, low budget, Art House Horror-Comedy. Yep. Worth the watch? Sure. I just wasn’t a fan of the random stylistic jumps. It seemed like Folger was experimenting with direction and photographic styles, in this, his directorial debut, and mashed them all together in one film. Neat, but all over the freaking place. The story rather suffered for this, as in some places the story was over explained, and in others it was overly metaphorical. On the plus side, the cast is very talented, and there is all sorts of great kill scenes with plenty of good effects.
Not really a “shark movie,” but it is an entertaining action flick. I really enjoyed the beautiful and talented Erica Cerra, as Jasmine, and the comedic arrogance of Derek Theler’s, as Chase. They had great chemistry. It really starts picking up toward the end when Chase and Jake (Paul du Toit) begin revealing their back story. Sadly, Arnold Vosloo’s talents are pretty much wasted in such a minor role.
All in all, a light entertaining action/thriller that happens to have sharks and eye candy.
This micro budget, indie, horror anthology from Nebraska is a great example of what is right in the world of indie cinema. The folks at Dead Lantern took their time, over 4 years, an extremely limited budget and made the absolute most of it. Utilizing their talented cast, make up, location, and simple effects to create ten short films which successfully draw the audience into their world and keep them captivated through their stylistically diverse film.
