Okay, so I’m totally back on a horror kick. Expect me to spotlight a lot more free movies like Bread Crumbs, Dragon Wasps, and Jack Frost 2. This past week I stumbled on this 2010 horror comedy flick from Indie Rights, Zombie Beach.
The movie was directed and stars Mukesh Asopa, who also helmed The Taste of Relation and Chamers Gate, the first a mystery drama and the second a crime flick. It co-stars Katherine Stefanski, Kamal Nandi, Kevin Tracy, Rick Cordeiro, Kristi Woods, and Wade Gamble. Zombie Beach has a bit of a throwback 70s vibe to it.
Description: Centuries ago, rather than have a full out war of the revelation, a deal was struck between the heroes of the good and the evil. The beach you visited was sanctioned to the evil. There, the undead could walk like living beings among us. (via IMDB)

Release Date: December 11, 2015
Director: Brian Helgeland (42, A Knight’s Tale)
Cast: Tom Hardy, Emily Browning, David Thewlis, Christopher Eccleston, Chazz Palminteri, Tara Fitzgerald, and Taron Egerton.
Plot: From Academy Award® winner Brian Helgeland (L.A. Confidential, Mystic River) comes the true story of the rise and fall of London’s most notorious gangsters, Reggie and Ron Kray, both portrayed by Tom Hardy in an amazing double performance.
Legend is a classic crime thriller taking us into the secret history of the 1960s and the extraordinary events that secured the infamy of the Kray twins. (Official Facebook Page)
Thoughts: What is better than Tom Hardy? Two Tom Hardy’s- In duel roles that already earned him a British Independent Film Award and have many thinking he’ll get an Oscar nom. As mentioned above, he takes on the roles of the Krey twins, infamous London gangsters. The trailer was intriguing, but honestly, I just want to see Legend to see how Hardy juggles the roles. It is always interesting to see how directors and actors handle having one person in two leading roles.

Nothing is better than a slasher twist on a fairy tale, even more so when you add porn stars, a cabin in the woods, creepy children, and over the top gory fun! That is exactly what I hope that Bread Crumbs has. Either way it is available to watch online for free via Snag Films (my recent one stop go to for watching movies online!).
Official Description: We all live in a house of candy in this Hansel and Gretel-inspired slasher fairy tale. Once upon a time, aging porn star Angie Hart reluctantly agreed to make one final film at an enchanting old cabin deep in a forest.
While on location, the cast and crew encounter Henry and Patti—two strange siblings who seem to live in the woods. A vicious attack during an evening shoot sends Angie and the rest of the crew into a frightened frenzy. They lock themselves into the secluded cabin, trapped by an unseen assailant. Could these two mysterious children somehow be responsible?
And when handsome leading man Billy takes Patti hostage to gain leverage against the killer, it proves to be the ultimate mistake…. Eat the candy, if you dare!
Bread Crumbs was directed by Mike Nichols, the producer of His Name Was Jason: 30 Years of Friday the 13th, and stars Marianne Hagan (Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers), Steve Carey, Dan Shaked, Jim J Barnes, Zoe Sloane, and Shira Weitz. Click here to watch the movie for free!

One of the best PlayStation 3 trilogies has finally come to the PS4 in Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection. The 3 games have been re-mastered and retooled to give PS4 owners a taste ahead of next years Uncharted 4. The first instalment released way back in 2007 was probably the first title that gave the PS3 the chance to show off the true graphic capability of the machine. The bright and vivid color scheme of tropical islands was really brought to life, a trend that continued in Uncharted 2 with the snowy mountains of Nepal and then again in Uncharted 3 with the deserts of the Sahara. Each game has always improved on the graphics and the action set pieces.
Now given that these games looked amazing on the PS3, they look even more amazing when matched with the PS4’s graphic capability. The smooth transition of game’s control system makes it a game that is easy to pick up and play if you haven’t played the games before. The makers Naughty Dog have always been by their own admission a 30 frames per second studio and given that they have doubled that for this re-mastered collection really shows as the game feels faster and a quicker pace to the action really shows.
The one thing that has always made the Uncharted trilogy stand out in my opinion is their attention to detail when it comes to their characters. The voiceover and motion capture work of Nolan North (Drake), Emily Rose (Elena), Richard McGonagale (Sully), and later on Claudia Black (Chloe) is top notch, they really bring the characters to life with performances that make you feel like you are watching a movie. I cannot recommend this trilogy enough for PS4 owners to pick up if they haven’t already yet.

We are thrilled to present the second indie film in our new column The 5Ws and How: I Was a Teenage Superhero Sidekick. We spoke to J Hanna, the writer/director of the lighthearted superhero drama.
Directed by J Hanna, I was a Teenage Superhero Sidekick is the story of an ex-sidekick finding his way in the world, post superhero life. Produced by Kathy McCurdy, who made this movie a reality… more on that later. Our cast of characters is as diverse as the actors are. Barrett Mitchell plays Kid Dynamic, aka Larry, the ex-sidekick of the title who has to find his way in the world and find out what makes Larry LARRY. Andre Antwan plays The Frog King, the top-of-his-game superhero whose villain girlfriend, Croc Queen, played by Nicol Razon, breaks his heart and sends him down a spiral of pain and sadness. Milena Mortati plays the shrink trying to help Larry navigate his life. Emily Sandifer is Susie, Larry’s current love interest and the leader of an anti-superheros organization. Bill Ferris and Eryn Joslyn round out the cast as Dynamic Man and Electric Maiden, the people from Larry’s past who drove him out of the business.
We have an incredible group of people behind the camera as well. Hasbro toy designer Vanessa Fung did our poster and flashback comic book-style motion graphic sequences. And the talented composer of My Little Pony, Kelly Davidson, created our fabulous score.
Kid Dynamic, sidekick to Dynamic Man, quits the whole superhero racket and struggles with the transition… and with finding himself. His hippy-dippy headshrinker, who insists on outdoor yoga classes during psychoanalysis, helps him find the courage to go for the simpler life he yearns for. What he comes to understand is that life isn’t so simple, with or without the cape.
Basically the story is about finding out what makes you you and how you can come to see that. Seeing the truth in one’s self is a huge theme of the movie.
This movie takes place in a side reality to our reality. It is a world extremely similar to ours except, Superheroes/Villains/Powered People exist. Everything in this reality factors that in. From product branding, insurance, government employees… everything is affected by the powered entities. Also, LA…. it’s LA. Diverse, fun, sunny, and chock full of an eclectic mix of people, powered or not.
It was made in 2013-2014 by a very dedicated, incredibly talented group of people. It is currently in the festival circuit, having screened at 13 festivals so far, winning awards for Best Comedy at the Hollywood Reel Independent Film Festival and Best Fantasy Feature at the Motor City Nightmares International Film Festival. We’ve screened at a wide range of festivals/geek cons reaching a diverse group of people. The feedback has been incredible.
I was on the hunt for my next creative outlet. I was going to do a short film but my producing partner kicked me in the butt and said, “make a feature… now!” So I wrote TSHSK and she and I developed it into the fighting-fit script it became. She and I (mostly she) then recruited the talented folks who helped make the piece that it is.
In the movie itself, the characters are motivated by a need to know themselves. It might sound corny, but everyone is on the hunt, whether they know it or not, to understand their place in the world. The characters stumble and grow and learn something. In the unlikeliest of places sometimes.
Find us on Facebook! Currently we are still festival-ing. We are also on the hunt for the right kind of distribution. So, go to the Facebook page and find out where you can see us next. Know of a festival in your area? DEMAND they screen I was a Teenage Superhero Sidekick and send them our way.

Studio: 20th Century Fox
Director: Ridley Scott (Blade Runner, Alien, Gladiator)
Cast: Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Jeff Daniels, Michael Peña, Sean Bean, Kate Mara, Sebastian Stan, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Donald Glover, Aksel Hennie, Naomi SCott, and Mackenxiee Davis.
Plot: During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet.
With only meager supplies, he must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive. (Official Facebook Page)
Thoughts: Based on the witty, fast paced, and “super science-y” novel by Andy Weir, I am very excited to check out The Marian. I can’t wait to see how the science is presented in the movie. The novel was very well researched and goes into great detail with the scientific processes that are presented. The casting is fantastic. I’m especially looking forward to seeing Matt Damon as the wisecracking Watney. The script was penned by Drew Goddard (World War Z, The Cabin in the Woods), and directed by the legendary Ridley Scott.
