Rally The Troops! Support Indie Horror

0

Alrighty, ladies and gentlemen, let’s check out another piece of Indie Horror that needs out support. Let’s check out the short film PAGE ONE!

So PAGE ONE is about Abel, who is a black actor who dies in every single horror movie that he has been in. When the set of a film he is doing is attacked by actually monsters, Abel is way ahead of the game on how to survive. So it’s up to him to keep everyone alive.

This sounds HILARIOUS! According to the video above, the film has already been made but they need your support to pay for the cost of this endeavor. They hope to show this short to other film festivals and hope to find support for a full feature film.

So let’s talk about the Perks! They range from a name credit to digital downloads of he film and production book, and tickets to a comedy show, and an invite to the NYC screening of PAGE ONE!

Life is Strange

0

Life is Strange from Dontnod. Episode 2 release expected at the end of March.

I love this video game. No, really. I played it twice. I love the beautiful graphics. I love the rich, well-written story. I love its addictive playability. Frankly, I just love everything about it. Life is Strange is an interactive, time bending game, where each of the player’s choices can be remade or changed to choose your own adventure. The protagonist, Max, is a shy 18yr old student at a photography school. She deals with Mean Girl style bullies, gun violence at her school, and complicated friendships all while trying to make sense of her time travel powers. Sounds like a cute game for kids, right? WRONG. This game is not for children! It gets surprisingly dark once the high school stuff is taken care of. Horror, suspense, violence, and drug use ups the rating to Mature.

Developer Dontnod knocked this game out of the park. And good news! There’s still time to catch up and play the first installment before the expected second release this month. Trailer below.

This video game is easy and fun to play with a charming soundtrack. If you’re a fan of story-rich games featuring real world issues, Life Is Strange is definitely for you.

Getting Ready for “First Date: A Modern Love Story”

1

I stumbled on this while playing around with Youtube. I present to you “First Date: A Modern Love Story” written, directed, and produced by Blair Richardson.

It is a very short film, no more than three minutes but it’s entertaining. In the film we see a woman getting ready for a date. We don’t see her face but it’s something every woman should be familiar with. From choosing what to wear to spraying on your favorite perfume. We even see the unsuspecting guy pull up in a fancy car. You can totally see in his face that he thinks he’s getting lucky tonight. But that depends on your definition of “lucky”.

Since this is such a short film, I’m not going to say much more. I actually think that it would make a clever perfume or lingerie commercial, especially now that Halloween is just around the corner. Either way, I’d like to see more from Blair Richardson. I really wanted this film to be a little bit longer! I realize that you’re left to drown in your imagination at the end but I really wanted to see that date unfold.
