Review: Fireside Tales

“Fireside Tales” from CatchMeKillMe Productions is a good anthology of short horror tales, as told by friends around the campfire. During the film, there are four tales, each about 10-15 minutes long, with great action. As to not give anything away, I can tell you that the first story centers around a man they call “Undertow.” I thought it had great potential to go on by itself for a while. “Undertow” has a great Jason vibe to it, and I’d love to see it made in to a full film. The second story involved a man who cuts off a girl’s face, only to face justice by the one person who should. This one had a great Leatherface vibe to it. Story number three, was a small dud, but it goes well with the movie. The bad story actually made the main plot move along, and made it more realistic. The final story is another one that I would love to see made in to a full story.

There are more twists and turns at the end of the movie, and I was thoroughly entertained. Great job by the crew at CatchMeKillMe Productions, and the director Ian Messenger. The cast was wonderful, and this is how you do a short horror anthology. I can’t wait for the wide release on this film.

Run time: Approx. 109 minutes.

With the increasing popularity of escape rooms, you knew it was only a matter of time before someone made a horror film based on them. Folks, that time is now. Bessy Adut’s feature length debut will be called “Escape Room,” and this one looks like it could be fun with a great message.

Here’s the Indiegogo video for “Escape Room”:

They are currently looking for $5000 in funding, and have nearly made that goal. There are some great perks on the site, and we will be giving to this project. Please, take the time to watch the video, and head over to donate to this worthwhile project. We hope to have Bessy on to talk about this in the near future, so keep your eyes open.

Jordskott Season 2 Premieres on Shudder

Last year, AMC (owners of Shudder) acquired the rights to air the Swedish supernatural noir, Jordskott. Earlier this week, season 2 premiered on Shudder.

If you are unfamiliar with the show, the story follows Eva, a Swedish detective, who’s daughter went missing by a lake seven years prior. Josephine’s body was never found and it was presumed that she had drowned. Upon Eva’s return, a boy is missing and Eva begins to look for similarities between this disappearance and that of her daughter. At the same time, she has to deal with the death and probate of her late father and his large timber felling and processing business, Thörnblad Mineral & Cellulosa.

Over the course of the series, Eva discovers that the children’s disappearance is inextricably tangled with the conflict between local and mystical elements who desire to protect the forest and the community at large that depends on Thörnblad Mineral & Cellulosa.

This show is a complete thrill ride, and is worth checking out. I’ve only seen three episodes of season two, so far. However, I’m completely entranced by this show.
