Movie Reviews

Awsome and Creepy
(5 out of 5 stars)

"These four films are great for night in the dorms being creeped out . All follow a theme of a the beast within all of us with characters that aren't that different than people you know, except that they all have a dark side. Particulary notable in the DVD collection is the film Searching For Haizmann. This a creepy tale about three college kids looking for facts on the anti-christ. They find more than they bargained for. The story is awsome and it ends in a way I would never have guessed. The thing about this film too is especially the two extremely hot female leads. In their search they interview a particularly creepy character played by the greatest actor of all time, Clint Howard. Me and my friends kept watching his scenes over and over. Tippi Hedren from the old Hitchcock films is also in this one which is cool. And that guy who played Flounder in Animal House plays a completely wacked out professor obsessed with the anti-christ.Back to the hot chicks, they're worth the price of admission alone. Jenny Mollen who you've seen as the wearwolf in the TV show Angel, plays Grace in this film. And Grace is aptly named. We've all been wanting to see more of her since that Angel episode. And if that's not enough Colombe Jacobsen who played that goth chick in Men In Black II is in this one too playing the part of Hannah. But in this movie she's not goth at all, she's more like a hippi chick--and hot, hot, hot.Anyway see this one first. The plot is cool and the story is really intense. I'll write more on the other films later."
Really creepy

"This is the film I used to break out from time to time and show friends back in the day because NOBODY saw it at the theatre. It always got a very good reaction because it is a very creepy film. Even today the stop-motion effects will give most folks the creeps even while they're busy knocking the older effects model. The film seemed to be a labor of love from director Phillipe Mora because there are some genuine creepy moments that still work to this day 22 years later. Ronny Cox is the sole "name " in this movie although many may recognize R.G. Armstrong, Don Gordon, or L.Q. Jones. Don't let my positive review so far sell you however, there are plenty of lousey acted, slow paced scenes that add up to nothing here except filler acting as background info for the scenes of the "change" that takes place for the lead actor. The real emphasis in the movie is the special effects which were for the day awesome, but today are a bit goofy, but genre buffs will appreciate the effort nontheless. Still a good rent or cheap purchase."

"I saw One of the movies on this set, Collinsville, at it's premiere, It is a very good first offering, with the amount of money they had to make it with. The acting is very good, especially the blind shop owner, and the screenplay is first rate. For the price i would recommend this DVD to anyone who likes low budget horror."
