Film Review: Sharknado (2013)

Sharknado-Banner

SYNOPSIS: When a freak hurricane swamps Los Angeles, thousands of sharks terrorize the waterlogged populace. And when the high-speed winds form tornadoes in the desert, nature’s deadliest killer rules water, land, and air. REVIEW: Syfy channel has a way of bringing up the quirky and absurd, though in this case you should be thanking the masterminds “The Asylum” for another helping of sharky nonsense. Yep… they raised the bar with 2009’s “Mega Shark vs Giant … Continue reading

Film Review: The Haunting of Whaley House (2012)

The-Haunting-of-Whaley-House-2012-movie-3

SYNOPSIS: Just because you don’t believe in ghosts, doesn’t mean they don’t believe in you! REVIEW: Based on true events is always a tag line I heed with caution. The film is a new production under the Asylum group which also is a factor worth heeding that same caution. To be honest, I was expecting another hand held film like the “Amityville Haunting” film (or in fact several others bearing the haunting title from Asylum). … Continue reading

Film Review: Alien: Origin (2012)

Alien: Origin (2012)

SYNOPSIS: A movie created from “found footage” of a lost military expedition that exposes the origins of life on earth. REVIEW: My first thought when hearing the title “Alien: Origin” from the folks over at The Asylum I assumed it would be some sort of “Prometheus” mockbuster. Instead, I just sat through a film that ran just under ninety minutes and I feel like I just pissed away an entire day. If I didn’t have … Continue reading

Did … Continue reading
