It Came From the Indies – Drew Bolduc/Science Team

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:

Cinemosity 72 – Zombeavers

Zombeavers-PosterZOMBEAVERS is a tribute to the wackiness of 80’s horror but is it too self-aware for its own good? Plus lotsa gossip including an amazing story of Chris Brown douchebaggery, Idris Elba news, and the fallout from Trevor Noah being named the next host of The Daily Show.

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.

Repentance-2014

Cinemosity 70 – Repentance

repentance-posterREPENTANCE is a terrible movie and Cinemosity explains in delicious detail as to why that is. Is Forest Whitaker the black Nicolas Cage? Harsh? Not if you’ve sat through Repentance which we really wouldn’t recommend, which is why we spoil the crap out of it. There’s also the gossip you know and love, banter and tangents galore.

Repentance required our next movie be something simple, a low-hanging fruit that can provide a little bit of a palete cleanse and it just so happens that TWILIGHT just popped up on Netflix! So yes, next week is the creepy young adult vampire opus TWILIGHT. Whoo.

It Came From the Indies – Mike Mendez

Mike fucking Mendez! Martin was ridiculously excited to talk to Mike Mendez, director of one of his favorite horror movies THE CONVENT. Martin totally fanboys his way through a great 90 plus minute conversation with Mike Mendez which covers his current projects and his early work THE KILLERS and THE CONVENT that have strong cult followings. Mike has two projects upcoming: LAVALANTULA coming to SyFy in August and then October sees horror anthology TALES OF HALLOWEEN both of which have a lot of recognizable names both in front of and behind the screen.

le_couvent_the_convent_2000_reference

Mike Mendez is a survivor, a dedicated filmmaker who has worked his ass off for years to do what he loves. He’s faced some lulls in his career and some hurdles to negotiate but one cannot help but be inspired by how Mike has always been able to get back on that horse. We get to benefit too! Despite what you may think about a movie called BIG ASS SPIDER Mike is not an Asylum-type crapmeister like a Thunder Levin, this is a genuinely talented director who puts his all into everything he makes. We hope you enjoy this talk and hopefully get inspired by Mike Mendez and his great attitude which has allowed him to overcome adversity and still get to do what he loves.

Cinemosity 69 – Killer Mermaid

killer_mermaid2MURMAIDER! KILLER MERMAID is a little light on the Mermaids but it sure has sine killerings! Plus Killer Mermaid does end up robbing the movie of a lot of suspense. On the gossip and pop culture news front there are sad passings, Chris Brown being a daddy and the continued success of Empire on FOX. There’s also a discussion about how Empire and other entertainment portrays mental illness and how it’s time to change some perceptions. A great episode! Next week our movie is REPENTANCE starring Forest Whitaker, Anthony Mackie, Sanaa Latham, Mike Epps and Nicole Ari Parker! It’s on Netflix Instant and Amazon Prime so you can enjoy some wacky Forest Whitaker ham and cheese!

Cinemosity 67 – Bamboo Gods and Iron Men

bamboo_gods_and_iron_men_poster_01It’s Black History Month and the Cinemosity gang looks at American/Filipino Blaxploitation/weirdo Filipino comedy BAMBOO GODS AND IRON MEN. Thrill at how the film tries to do all this different stuff and fails at everything with one of the most obnoxious endings of all time! Plus there’s gossip and stuff.

Next week’s movie is RATS NIGHT OF TERROR directed by Bruno Mattei and starring Geretta Geretta! Listen to the trailer but don’t watch it, because it gives away too much stuff. It IS worth it just for the voiceover alone though.
