The Dead Hour


FINAL DESTINATION 5 in 3D  Starring Tony Todd, Emma Bell, Nicholas D'Agosto

A young man named Sam (Nicholas D'Agosto) has a premonition that he and his co-workers will die in  a suspension collapsing bridge on their way to a trip - in the premonition Sam sees the most disturbed, horrific deaths ready to happen.  Sam wakes up from his premonition and alerts the bus driver about the collapsing bridge ahead.  Before you know it, Sam and eight of his co-workers escape the invisible death.
The film turns into a slice, dice, splatter, chop, ooze, grisly, blood and gore fiasco of fun and death.  And the gimmick here is 3D where you get to enjoy all the grisly deaths right in your face.  Sam and his co-workers start to run away from death in the most satirical way.  Tony Todd makes a special appearance delivering his deathly one liners.  The film goes more in-depth into each of the characters unlike the last three Final Destination films in which you don't care about the characters, you are just dying to see how they going to die - but in this installment we are more installed into the characters lives.  Final Destination 5 most classic sequence is the collapsing suspension bridge - a must see.

By the end of the film we really don't care who survives or not, we are just having a good ole time watching a blood and gore ride in 3D.  We all know there is going to be a part 6 around the corner.  The Final Destination franchise is twenty times better than the SAW and PARANORMAL ACTIVITY franchise.

THREE STARS - A Hellish Joy Ride of blood and gore...

August 14, 2011


Is been three months since I wrote a review or did an interview here at eyepus.  Sorry folks for being a ghost for three months.  My sincere apologies.  This month I will begin with a dvd film review of TICKED-OFF TRANNIES WITH KNIVES.

TICKED-OFF TRANNIES WITH KNIVES  Starring Krystal Summers, Kelexis Davenport, William Belli, Jenna Skyy, Tom Zembrod, Erica Andrews.  Written and Directed by Israel Luna.

What started as good ole campy dialogue between transgendered girls (looking a bit like drag queens) in a dressing room ready to perform at a cabaret show and thirty minutes of thrilling, edge on your seat little scary action turns into dumb camp, trashy, stupidity spoof, tired mess.

The storyline: In short summary - Two transgirls (I hate using the word trannies) take a ride out of town to meet some guys for some little action.  The guys turn out to be transphobic, bully-killer motherfuckers, especially the leader named Boner (Tom Zembrod, giving some fine chilling performance).  The girls get trapped inside some warehouse in the middle of nowhere, where they get served brutally by the guys.  The survivors of the brutal attack start to seek vengeance in a smart, but yet stupid way.

Some fine performances from the cast and good direction.  Great costumes and wardrobe designs.  The storyline was a perfect concept "Transgirls VS Transphobic Men Revenge", but Mr. Luna decided to make it into a spoof.  If this film was not a spoof and more of a serious film, it could've been an instant cult classic along with Lloyd Kaufman "Mother's Day", "Ms. 45" and "I Spit On Your Grave".

Was it necessary for this film shot in video to have that grindhouse look? The grindhouse effect style for this film: splices, derailed sounds, bad in purposely jump cuts, etc., - TIRED.  There was no need for it.  Low-budget Filmmakers nowadays are using the whole grindhouse gimmick effect to cover up their film flubs, bad lighting, bad cinematography mistakes.  If the film had more splatter and gore fiasco it could've been delivered as a homage to the video nasties of the 80's but not the grindhouse look.

Filmmaker Israel Luna aint no John Waters, Tarantino, or Rodriguez.  But I must say Mr. Luna delivered a great concept for what could've been a great serious film, but he took his concept into a shady film spoof mock and made court jesters of the transgender girls for the heterosexual community across the nation, who still believe in their own little minds that the transgender community is a freak show.  Israel Luna redo this film again with a real serious tone.
