The Prey – Review by Prof. Aglaophotis

Posted by Josh Samford On August - 4 - 2010
Sorry the brief lack of updates everybody! I had the content ready last week, but I found myself rather busy! Better late than never I suppose! So here comes a great contributed review from our good friend Prof. Aglaophotis. He dissects this piece of eighties trash as only the professor really could! Check it out!

The Plot: Something isn’t right at the North Point, Keen Wild, Colorado; someone… or something is going around killing campers in grisly ways. However, the bodies of the victims are never found, so they’re reported as disappearances. That is until a group of van driving teenage campers ride in to spend some fun times in the wilderness. It is here that the killer/creature/humanoid starts to take their lives. The forest rangers finally take notice of the missing campers and act upon the disappearances. But as the campers move on without their friends and they finally do come across our killer, they will eventually discover the killer’s motivation and a bizarre demise may await those who learn of its secret…


Late Bloomer Review by Jon Jung

Posted by Josh Samford On May - 20 - 2009

Well Jon’s been a pretty busy little bee here lately, but managed to take in Go Shibata’s new classic Late Bloomer. I caught this one a while back myself, and essentially agree with him on all counts. Not a perfect film, but unique and interesting in all the right ways. Definitely worth catching simply for the experience.

The Plot: Late Bloomer documents a severely disabled man, Sumida-san, who has made a life for himself hanging out with friends, drinking beer (a lot, at that), and checking out shows. In addition, Sumida-san is the director of a disabled home (as is the real-life actor, Masakiyo Sumida in a bit of verisimilitude) and well-cared for. Though this may seem like a rather content life, Sumida-san’s anger and frustration toward his disabilities provoke him to embark on a murderous rampage.
