Vampyres Poster on Sale

Vampyres 


 In 1974, an English horror film titled VAMPYRES, written and directed by José Ramón Larraz Gil , premiered to an unsuspecting world. Soon, it became a cult horror sensation because of its sensuality, its gruesomeness and its twisted atmosphere. This new version keeps those graphic elements and the twisted atmosphere, but includes more action, more horror and more gore in telling the story of two vamps that “live” in a dark manor where they bring men with the promise of sex orgies that ultimately become blood orgies.

Wicked Channel Review: The Devil Lives Here

The Devil Lives Here Review-
Artsploitation Films have thrown me a curve ball with this film. When you watch the trailer, it seems like a basic and cut and dry horror film. When you start to watch this film, common sense goes right out the window within seconds. The plot from what I can remember involves Apolo. Apolo has invited his buddies, Ale, Jorge and Magu to visit a farmhouse owned by his family. He never tells them, what his motive for this visit is. It seems that he wants to free a baby’s spirit from this curse. It seems that on this day, every 9 months, that a being called Bee Baron comes to claim a baby unless descendants of the family of the child can stop him. As you can assume, the visitors are not exactly down with this and all hell breaks loose. This film was confusing but it was fun. It has this “ Candyman” like vibe towards it. I feel this film would have been smarter to add more depth to the history of the story, unless this film is like Muck, and this is the start and we get the prequel next. The acting in this film was fine, and at times very above average as well. This film felt energetic and passionate. Which adds to the confusion of the story it was trying to tell. This film really wants an audience to follow, where it should have gave them a proper introduction to the story to really follow. Though, towards the end, the film does seem to lose a little steam. That being said, this is an above average film that can get horror fans excited about the holidays. This would be a fun present. It has such a great pacing, and a understanding of what they want to get out of the story. A little more depth would have helped the film, but compared to other films out there, this film does a fair job at keeping your interest. I have to recommend this film, as I am going to be watching it again to see if it makes more sense in repeat viewings.
7.5 out of 10

Search My Trash Interview w/ George Moise / Counter-Clockwise

An Interview with George Moïse, Director & Co-Writer of Counter Clockwise


Your new film Counter Clockwise - in a few words, what is it about?
 
Here’s the logline I’ve said a million people:
A scientist accidentally invents time travel and is zapped 6 months in the future. But it’s a dark, upside-down world where people are trying to kill him and he’s framed for the deaths of his wife and sister. He must go back in time to uncover the mystery and rewrite history.

What were your inspirations when writing Counter Clockwise, and are you at all a fan of time travel stories in whatever medium - and did you do any kind of research on the subject?

Well my brother Walt (co-story, producer, editor) came up with the idea. He’s a huge sci-fi fan and had read a Philip K. Dick short story that was sort of like this. I actually don’t know which story! I am a fan of time travel stories, and I did do a lot of research, mainly watching as many time travels movies as possible. Actually there’s not that many of note. There’re random ones like The Final Countdown and Timerider but they’re not that helpful. The best ones are the movies everyone knows: Back to the Future, Terminator. TIMECRIMES is an amazing time travel movie and I also like Millennium.

Artsploitation's Fever is now available on VOD platforms

 A Gallic Take on the Leopold and Loeb Scandal, FEVER Out on VOD Platforms

b
The New York Times described the French psychological thriller Fever as “Intriguing and intelligent…chilling” when it was released in cinemas last year. The story revolves around two teen boys who kill a stranger for the thrill of it and seemingly get away with the crime. But take note, this film is on the far "art" side of "artsploitation" - there is no blood shed (the murder happens 5 minute before the start of the film) and no violence. Rather the film is brilliant in its examination of these two boys and how a "perfect murder" affects them differently. Loosely adapted on the 1920s Leopold and Loeb murder scandal that has been filmed several different times (Compulsion, Rope, Swoon) , the film now comes out on leading VOD Platforms today. 
Available on the following sites:
 Synopsis:
High school students Damien and Pierre are from wealthy families with nothing seemingly in their lives to leave them disturbed. Yet they plan and carry out the murder of an unknown woman they have previously only spotted on the street. The police are at a loss, confused by this murder without motive. Zoé, an optician in the neighborhood, who is feeling more and more moved by this inexplicable murder, bumps into the teenage murderers by chance. But this chance fleeting encounter reveals inside her a growing and mysterious desire. Although scared (she could easily be a victim of Damien and Pierre), her erotic attraction for the duo goes beyond that. It gives her a chance to find a way out of the loveless rut that her life has ended up in. While Damien and Pierre, thinking no one will catch them, embark on a journey deep within their pasts. Inspired from a real life story of mindless and seemingly meaningless crime as well as Fyodor Dostoyevsky's "Crime and Punishment", this thoughtful psychological thriller will enthrall viewers.

The Devil Lives Here review from Search My Trash


via GIPHY

The Devil Lives Here

Apolo (Pedro Carvalho) has invited his best friends Jorge (Diego Goullart), Ale (Mariana Cortines) and Magu (Clara Verdier) to his family's farmhouse deep in the country, but doesn't tell them that he plans a séance to free the spirit of a baby from its curse - which in itself sounds like a noble thing, but there's more to that story than meets the eye, as on this very day every nine months, a beeing called the Bee Baron (Ivo Müller) comes to claim the baby unless descendants from the baby's family prevent him - descendants like Tiao (Pedro Caetano) and Luciano (Felipe Frazao), who are so shocked about what Apolo was planning to do that they resort to violence in an effort to set a few wrongs right - but violence of course isn't the answer when dealing with the supernatural, especially since the Bee Baron is already quickly approaching, and Ale seems to be possessed by some spirit or other to turn the tide - but in which way and with which ulterior motives remains to be seen ...

Coffee and Time Travel - Counter-Clockwise Review

Coffee, Coffee, and More Coffee Review of Counter-Clockwise


I was glad to see that in the "Making of . . ." supplement for Counter Clockwise, writer-director George Moise acknowledged, among other films, Nacho Vigalongo's Time Crimes from 2007. The two films have somewhat similar premises with a man going into the future, and pursuing himself in the attempt to prevent a future crime. The biggest difference is that Vigalongo kept everything compact, with the action taking place within a very specific space, with a small number of characters. Moise takes his main character and his clones through the outskirts of Los Angeles, with a larger number of characters encompassing a much larger space.



While films with characters caught in time loops, finding themselves repeating situations, have been around since at least the 1930s, Moise uses a visual queue from what may be the first film to show time traveling characters within the same space. That film, from 1964, was in fact titled The Time Travelers, where a group of scientists, working on a time portal, briefly spot shadows that appear spontaneously, unaware that the shadows are their future selves, moving through an accelerated time loop. Moise gradually reveals that his main character, the scientist Ethan, is caught in a time loop with brief shadows that seem to appear of their own accord, as well as visual hints that are revisited as the film progresses.

"Der Bunker (which means The Bunker here in America) is a movie unlike just about anything Ive ever seen." - ZOMBIES DON'T RUN

ZOMBIES DON'T RUN review of DER BUNKER 


Der Bunker (2015) (Blu-ray Review)
Directed By: Nikias Chryssos
Starring: Pit Bukowski, Daniel Fripan, Oona von Maydell
Rated: UR/Region A/2:35/1080p/Number of Discs 1
Available from Artsploitation Films

 A young student seeks quiet and solitude to focus on an important work but ends up as the teacher of a peculiar boy who is home-schooled by his parents in an isolated bunker mansion. THE BUNKER is a dark, twisted, and funny tale about childhood, growing up and education.



 Der Bunker (which means The Bunker here in America) is a movie unlike just about anything I’ve ever seen. This is the story of a very odd couple with a very odd “child” living in a bunker of a home when they rent out the spare room to a guy (the student) who ends up getting basically everything but the quiet he was looking for. What makes it so odd is that it is a very dry comedy in a lot of ways and that seems to be the base of the movie but at the same time you sense something is up that isn’t good and you have a feeling that the other foot will drop. That does happen, but it doesn’t happen until after we’ve had a few laughs, seen a kid that clearly isn’t 8 breastfeed on his mother, seen the same mother talk through and to something that is very supernatural, and other weird stuff that I don’t want to say here. You just need to experience it for yourself and I’m not too sure everyone will dig it but I do bet you won’t be able to burn it off and that you’ll at least remember it after it’s over. It’s a bit less stylish than a Wes Anderson film but it has some of those tones to it with the characters and humor.
