Cinemosity 77 – The Visitor

thevisitor_poster_web_v2__smallMartin inflicts one of the great celebrated bad movie masterpieces on his co-hosts: THE VISITOR. Ripping off more movies than a year of output from the Asylum, The Visitor is a bewildering sci-fi horror thing that has an utterly ludicrous plot matched only by the baffling amount of known actors clogging up the cast. It is totally unique and has one of the greatest terrible theme songs you’ve ever heard. Enjoy!

Next week our movie is BATTLESHIP!

Cinemosity 76 – Ghidrah the Three Headed Monster

ghidrah_poster_05Clearly GHIDRAH THE THREE HEADED MONSTER is Gareth Evans’ favorite Godzilla film because it is nearly as boring as the 2014 Godzilla he directed. Nothing happens for ages except boring characters spewing total nonsense, then by the time the titular monster shows up the film is nearly over! Rubbish.

Our next movie is Italian sci-fi weirdo masterpiece THE VISITOR!

Cinemosity 75 – FROGS

frogsFROGS is thoroughly misleading in just about every way imaginable. Yes, there are frogs in this movie called FROGS. Unless you buy the concept that the frogs are in some way harbingers of doom or perhaps malevolent overseers of Mother Nature’s revolt against a bunch of rich douchebags. Even then, Frogs is still rubbish.

Next show: GHIDORAH THE THREE HEADED MONSTER

It Came From the Indies – South Fellini

south_felliniLive from the Philadelphia Podcasting Society’s Podcast Fair comes a special episode of It Came From the Indies! Martin talks to Tony Trov and Johnny Zito of South Fellini about their two movies Alpha Girls: A Satanic Sorority Slasher and the recently-shot American Exorcist. Tony and Johnny talk about their media-spanning projects, from comics to Philly-inspired shirts, to their feature films. They talk about leveraging the good will of the local community in Philadelphia in order to create interesting works with the character of the city, taking care of your crew, having a woman of color in a leading role, and how to successfully utilize crowd funding. This was recorded in a bar so the patrons are somewhat loud so this doesn’t have the usual high *cough* quality of It Came From the Indies but is still a great listen with a couple of really cool guys with great attitudes.

It Came From the Indies – Drew Bolduc/Science Team

Image created by LUCYD
Image created by LUCYD
Drew Bolduc is a Virginia native whose short films created to freak people out at local screenings spawned his feature debut (co-directed with Dan Nelson) THE TAINT. The film is a hyper-violent and bizarre take on misogyny in film where men are transformed into demented woman killers. Dense with content and full of challenging ideas and imagery, satire and horror all trying to live together it was a unique debut. Drew has followed this up with SCIENCE TEAM which is a very different film, much more character-based with some truly intense and at times downright furious performances. Drew talks about where these films came from as well as his experiences working on a Lloyd Kaufman movie set when he did some special effects work for RETURN TO NUKE ‘EM HIGH. Please support Drew through the following links where you can buy the movies and merchandise directly from him:

It Came From the Indies – Steve Kostanski/The Void

the_void“…the experience of making it I hope embodies everything that I imagined making an 80’s monster movie would be… Right down to a crew of guys in the shop wearing heavy metal shirts and listening to WASP.”

There’s no Heaven, but there’s actually a place worse than Hell. THE VOID.

Steven Kostanski is a filmmaker, special effects artist and all-round super creative dude who is a member of the Canadian filmmaking collective Astron-6. His output includes Manborg, Bio-Cop, W is for Wish from ABCs of Death 2 and Lazer Ghosts: Escape From Lazer Cove. He and fellow Astron-6 member Jeremy Gillespie launched an Indiegogo campaign for their next movie THE VOID and are looking to make a gory creature feature in the glorious 80’s horror style. Their campaign is full of great ideas, diverse and exciting perks and unparalleled levels of fan interaction which uniquely harness the amazing fanbase Steve and Jeremy have inspired with their films. It’s no wonder Martin is practically giddy about the potential this project holds as he fanboys all over the place.

Also included are important questions about why Steve thinks Robocop 3 is better than Robocop 2 and the Power/Rangers fan film and the difference between seriousness and sincerity.

GIVE THE VOID MONEY!

GHOUL

It Came From the Indies – Ghoul

GHOUL Key ArtCzech actor turned director Petr Jákl has just seen his new film GHOUL hit VOD and theaters in the United States. Ghoul tells the story of a documentary team that travels to the Ukraine to find out the terrible famine it suffered in 1932 which actually drove many to cannibalism. Intersecting with this is the legacy of notorious serial killer and cannibal Andrei Chikatilo who despite having been executed continues to haunt the hearts and minds of the community he belonged to.

Petr talks about why these stories appealed to him and how he developed them into a feature film. He talks about immersing the cast of Ghoul in the impoverished areas of the Ukraine where real villagers recall their actual stories of the terrible acts that were committed decades earlier. Deliberately keeping his cast on edge with stories of what might be lurking in the darkness of night, Petr strove for authenticity and spent THREE years in post-production to perfect the look, sound and feel of Ghoul. Other topics include the appeal to Eastern Europeans getting to see their own stories and why Petr finds real life stories so suitable for making film.
