THE HOUSE AND THE WHITE STRING – found footage review

I have to be honest with this one, this is a short film, not a feature. It’s a longer short film, for sure, but it’s not a feature. The crummy part here though is that this COULD have been a feature. Pretty easily. It’s a two person show, doesn’t really rely on expensive effects of… Continue reading THE HOUSE AND THE WHITE STRING – found footage review

HOWARD’S MILL – found footage review

File this under - Movies that seem ‘real’ but aren’t.  This isn’t real. There, that’s out of the way.  As I have mentioned before, there is a very subtle art to making ‘fauxumentary’ / ‘mockumentary’ films. You have two masters to serve, the documentary, and the fictional film. In the end, you are making a… Continue reading HOWARD’S MILL – found footage review

Oh, Hey, It’s Tubi!

Ya know, I have to admit that I was very, very late to the Tubi game but man alive, I am all in now. Tubi, for those who may not know is a free streaming service (owned by a bigger entity, thus allowing them to exist) that allows you to stream movies for free. We… Continue reading Oh, Hey, It’s Tubi!

Dashcam – found footage review

REVIEW! Hey you, it’s a review.  I don’t rhyme often, until I do.  That totally ties into this movie and this review.  I SWEAR IT! Anyway.  There are movies that are sit down, think about, contemplate, and question your life movies. Those are great. They are amazing. They open your mind to the world around… Continue reading Dashcam – found footage review

Next. – a blog

Next. That's what it's felt like for me over the past few months, maybe couple years. NEXT! I have written a LOT over the past couple of years. I have written, maybe five books, put out about four, or more. I dunno. I could look but don't WANNA. As of yesterday the newest book is… Continue reading Next. – a blog

Station Break

Hey there, friend and pal. Hey there, indeed. This is just a brief interruption of your usual spoonful of sugary sweetness wrapped up in a blog or review to mention my fictional exploits. As I mention from time to time. I am a writer. Author, if you will. I have written and published over twenty… Continue reading Station Break

GODFORSAKEN – Found Footage Review

One of the great sins I am finding with a lot of found footage films is the idea of creating so much of a tease that there’s no real way to pay it off. They are so desperate to make the movie exciting and interesting and scary that they don’t really think of how they’re… Continue reading GODFORSAKEN – Found Footage Review

FOLLOWERS – found footage review         

If there is something ripe for capturing when it comes to found footage it’s the prevalence of influencers and social media celebrities and how they film everything they do. I think most of us roll our eyes when we see the word Influencer but, like it or not, these are the people that are creating… Continue reading FOLLOWERS – found footage review         

FIRESTARTER (2022) – review

Firestarter is not one of the books most King readers point to as their favorite book of his. It’s also not one of the books that, upon mention, people moan over and gnash their teeth about. For me, I have always loved the book. Seen 100 yards away, it’s interesting that his early work featured… Continue reading FIRESTARTER (2022) – review

What Comes Next – blog

So, I write. A lot. I know, you’re shocked. SHOCKED! Since getting off of social media I have written a LOT more. I have the opportunity and I need to write because my head is just full, full, full of things and writing is the best way to get them out of myself. Blogging is… Continue reading What Comes Next – blog

The Widow – review

           Oh, you wily little movie, you. You almost had me. Well, OK, let’s be honest, you did have me. I went into this film thinking it was Found Footage. I was on my endless trek through the wonders of the found footage subgenre and happened on this import. It was dubbed, but that was… Continue reading The Widow – review
