Josh and Mike find a boarding house for the night, but Mike is suddenly attacked by something under his bed. That approach had worked for Alvin and the Chipmunks and The Smurfs, both of which spawned blockbuster films with major global appeal. A great release this year from Code Red, and a film that has long been negected. Kruize originally wrote the initial script. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2, which is sure to have its titular number replaced by a colon and subtitle, has officially been slated for an early June 2016 opening.
Bo Hopkins is the sheriff and the zombies are pretty damn good and convincing as well. Sure enough, the town folk are being zombified, leaving them with weird pus-spewing slits in their hands capable of transforming others by touch and burning through glass. When that strategy failed, it was reissued to theatres and video as Mutant, a laughably misleading title since this is, in fact, a good old-fashioned zombie flick. That same body is later replaced with a living man. It really does feel like an unwanted child, abandoned and troubled, cast out and abandoned. There is intrusive product placement that defies logic: pizza aficionados in New York City aren't going to get their fix from Pizza Hut. Those were my thoughts as well seeing the screens.
The movie actually needs a human actress who can really act and primarily across from ridiculously-dressed motion capture performers; Fox doesn't even look comfortable in finding an appropriate eyeline with her digital co-stars. There are some genuine shocks including a young child who is killed by his classmates, who are now bloodsuckers as well. Next set piece: urban destruction. But it's impossible to deny the impact that the razor-sharp picture and dynamic sound mix will have on a home theater. Updated review on October 2, 2016. The Blu-ray supports bookmarks, but doesn't resume playback. But when Montgomery goes missing, Hauser goes into overdrive to find his kin.
The Turtles have maintained a presence on television, mostly in animated form, for all but a few years at the turn of the millennium. On the plus side, they haven't completely abandoned serious filmmaking; they've got a good shot at featuring in the Oscars' Best Picture race with Selma and, though now considered a long shot for such a nomination, Interstellar is one of 2014's very best. No one is safe from these mutant motherfuckers. See details for additional description. The first half of Mutant is pretty routine stuff with far too much talking and an overreliance on unpleasant Southern stereotypes that really should have been put out to pasture decades earlier. In another, a doctor verbally hypothesizes what it would take for a person to be become a zombie while another doctor, maybe 10 feet behind her, turns into one.
And yet, comedies like Smurfs and G-Force seem more directly comparable than overcooked genuine spectacle action effects extravaganzas like Transformers. An extended ending 0:46 lets April O'Neil realize her dream of doing a serious report. The rest of the cast includes Cary Guffy and Jennifer Warren. Nonetheless, unless you've been bowled over by movies like Transformers and The Smurfs, this isn't good enough to warrant anything more than a morbid curiosity viewing. Incidentally this film was begun by Mark Rosman as a follow up to , but he got canned by producer Dick Clark-- yes, that Dick Clark. April's independent investigations lead her to discover that she actually knew these turtles as a child and that they were part of an experiment conducted at the company of her late father. Meanwhile Holly falls for Mike after he calls her a redneck don't ask and develops her own theories about what might be happening in this small, quiet town.
Luckily the alcoholic sheriff, Will Hopkins , steps in to break it up. It is less a film than an assault on the senses, one that doesn't engage your eyes or ears enough to justify that design, even with a number of effects clearly designed for 3D enjoyment. A nearby chemical plant has been dumping toxic water just outside of town, turning townspeople into contaminated, mutant zombies. Jody Medford is beautiful as Holly, and it's sad her film career ended with this film. It's probably not a featurette you expected to find, so kudos for the creativity. Josh Hauser and his younger brother, Mike Montgomery , both prone to highly questionable fashion choices, find their vacation road trip waylaid when a truckload of rednecks pushes them off the road and into a creek. Packaging should be the same as what is found in a retail store, unless the item is handmade or was packaged by the manufacturer in non-retail packaging, such as an unprinted box or plastic bag.
Interestingly, this didn't make the Academy's recent list of 79 songs eligible for this year's Original Song Oscar. The film still has a generally soft appearance with bright areas of light washing out parts of the screen, so it isn't exactly the kind of thing you'll throw on for demo material. Faces and skin look smooth, etc. Scary and exciting in a few scenes, but the film strives to be scary throughout and misses the mark by a little bit. Underrated horror film from John Cardos stars Wings Hauser as a young man on a getaway with his brother and they are forced off the road by rednecks and then forced to stay in a very small southern town until the car gets fixed.
He was an eccentric and always inserted wry humor into his horror films. Not much more needs to be said about the plot. It seems that a third party, one Peter Z. Wont you let it into your heart? When I was a kid, it was this stupid movie that gave me a prolonged buzz. When Mike himself goes missing, Josh teams up with the local sheriff and an attractive school teacher to find him until Josh discovers that the whole town and most of its people have been infected by a form of toxic waste, and they have all turned into toxic vampires whom prowl the streets at night for human blood! This by-the-numbers production doesn't seem to understand the appeal of the animated series or the comic book before it, and basically offers us a mild variation on the underwhelming formulas of crass movies like The Smurfs.
The dawn of the 1980s saw more than its share of eco-minded, human monster movies, a sub-genre spawned most likely by the one-two-punch of George A. I don't think Code Red handled this transfer, it arrived this way from the licensor. Especially if they just forced you off the road and into a river. When our heroes are menaced by the shrieking, bladder-bloated and blue-faced undead, we fear for them, even when — as in one seen where the local doctor casually talks to her assistant while he mutates, mimicking the symptoms shes speaking of — were stifling a giggle. This is the last thing they should feel and, rather quickly, Josh wakes up to discover that he is on his own. Liebesman may spare us the technical headaches that render the Transformers movies a mindless chore, but he doesn't give us anything substantial or satisfying in their place. While the film is at least visually and narratively coherent which is more than can be said for some installments of the Transformers series this aspires to , it is never funny, smart, interesting, or genuinely exciting.
Fishing themselves out of the river, John and Mike — after running into the crazed rednecks again which causes a massive bar fight — eventually take refuge for the night with an elderly woman. One thing leads to another and soon he discovers that the residents of the small southern town are infected with a toxic waste that is turning them into blood sucking zombies. A very brisk, entertaining audio commentary with Cardos, Montgomery, and producer Igo Kantor is moderated by Jeff McKay and covers everything from the Norcross locals including one head cheerleader whose crush on Montgomery led to security issues to the removal of Rosman to the many distribution travails under Film Ventures International, which would collapse soon after. Michelangelo's playful nature comes across and Donatello's glasses out him as a nerd. Those looking for a deep-space shocker in line with Ridley Scott, were bound to be bummed. All the actors are very good in their roles and the action, once it gets going never stops.
