Suitable for Murder

We focus a lot on free horror movies (because good or bad, they are always fun), but today we thought it would be nice to throw in a crime thriller/indie noir into the mix. From Indie Rights Movies we have Suitable for Murder, from director Fred P. Watkins (Revenge Bites, Bikini Detectives) and starring Ali Faulkner, Jackson Bostwick, Morgana Shaw, and Nate Rubin.

Description (spoilers): Joe Mondragon, a veteran cop who gets things done, forms an unlikely partnership with Samantha Baines. She is attached to Police Intelligence Division and feels more comfortable handling a computer than a gun. Samantha’s computer skills are needed to help hack into and track two serial killers who get their victims from Internet Chat Rooms. The plan goes horribly wrong and in a fire fight between Samantha and Joe, and the two killers, Joe is killed when Samantha is unable to make herself fire her weapon at the two serial killers. Samantha feels guilty and responsible. With the help of her new friend Mimi, and the Head of Homicide, Samantha reinvents herself and avenges Joe after a relentless chase of the killers.

You can check out Suitable for Murder free on YouTube and Snag Films.

Assassin's Creed Movie

Film Spotlight: Assassin’s Creed
Director: Justin Kurzel
Cast: Michael Fassbender, Marion Cotillard, Michael K Williams, Jeremy Irons and Brendan Gleeson.
Plot: The Assassin’s Creed movie follows a character by the name of Callum Lynch who, through a revolutionary technology that unlocks his genetic memories, is able to experience the adventures of his ancestor, Aguilar, in 15th Century Spain. Callum discovers he is descended from a mysterious secret society, the Assassins, and amasses incredible knowledge and skills to take on the oppressive and powerful Templar organization in the present day.

Thoughts: Let me start off by saying I am a HUGE fan of the Assassin’s Creed games. Lately they have sort of regressed with the move to next gen; Unity had to deal with some bad pre-release buzz due to a graphics glitch. Syndicate was a bit disjointed in its missions and gameplay. I enjoyed both but they never came close to how good Black Flag was. Fans of the game have long thought that the series is probably more suited than any other video game to be adapted into a film. The view of videos games not getting great adaptions might be broken with Assassin’s Creed. First of all Ubisoft who make the game set up their own production company to make sure they get the film right. Secondly they have gathered some great talent in the casting and hiring of the director and finally and perhaps most crucial is they decided not to adapt any of the games, instead they have gone for an original story but it is still set in the same universe as the games. That is something which I thought Warcraft got wrong this year, adapting a story from the games instead of creating one.

Now there is still a chance that it might not work but from the trailers that have been released the footage looks very promising. They have captured the essence of the games from the parkour running, the combat and that final shot from the trailer of the iconic leap of faith. Even the modern day sequences of Fassbender’s Callum Lynch inside an Abstergo facility. The redesigned Animus which is the tool that allows the present day Lynch to access his genetic memory of his ancestors looks pretty bad ass. I expect there will be some cool little mentions and Easter eggs in reference to games. I am pretty hopeful this will break the trend of bad video game movies and hope it will kick start a new era in video game movies.

Assassin’s Creed is out December 21st, 2016.


Zombie Pirates

Hey everyone, it has been a while but we’re back spotlighting some fun free movies that you can find online. Today’s pick is Captain Z and the Leviathan of Terror from indie VOD distributor Indie Rights Movies.

The movie from 2014 is a horror comedy from director Steve Rudzinski, who also helmed indie horror flicks Red Christmas and Everyone Must Die! Captain Z does not take itself serious with a tone that has been compared to one of my favorite flicks, Army of Darkness. Low budget charm mixed with horror and comedy? You have my attention.

Official Description: In 1714 Captain Zachariah Zicari stops a group of possessed townsfolk from using a powerful amulet that would have released the ultimate evil, the Leviathan. Fast forward to 2014 and the amulet is again in the wrong hands. Can Captain Z save the earth? (Source: IMDB)

Throw some popcorn on and click here to watch Captain Z and the Leviathan of Terror for free! The movie stars  Zoltan Zilai, Madison Siple, Steve Rudzinski, and Aleen Isley.

We were thrilled to chat with director Jeff Orgill about his independent film, Boppin’ at the Glue Factory.

boppin_title

Who?
Boppin’ at the Glue Factory, directed by Jeff Orgill, is a satire which incorporates a variety of likeable characters spearheaded by the very talented Henry Dittman and Conrad Roberts. Ditman plays Eric Labudde, an addicted nurse who can get away with anything, and Roberts plays jazz man Tharin Sanders. Together they form an unlikely partnership all in the name of getting high.

This is lead actor Henry Dittman’s first leading role in a feature length motion picture. Conrad Roberts, as jazzman Tharin Sanders, has memorable roles in Mosquito Coast as Mr. Haddy and in Serpent and the Rainbow as Christophe. Mews Small’s, as Mary LeDoux, most recognizable role was as Candy, Jack Nicholson’s partying girlfriend in One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest who deflowers Billy Bibbit.

The story is by Jeff Orgill and Hector Maldonado, with the screenplay by Jeff Orgill and B. Scott O’Malley (of Bleak Future fame). The film is being distributed by Indie Rights (Online) and Passion River Films (DVD).

Boppin At The Glue Factory

What?
Desperate for a place to live and for his next fix, drug-addled nurse Eric LaBudde (Henry Dittman) lands a job in a ramshackle convalescent home, where he develops a mutually enabling relationship with jazz saxophone-playing resident Tharin Sanders (Conrad Roberts). As Eric charms his way into the home’s drug cabinet, he inadvertently brings some light to the retirees’ grim lives.

boppin_1

Where?
Boppin’ at The Glue Factory takes place in St. Joseph’s Convalescent Home – a grim geriatric care facility. The shooting location was in Norwalk, California at the Metropolitan State Hospital at a decommissioned building that had also been featured in Tim Burton’s Ed Wood.

Boppin at the Glue Factory

When? 
Boppin’ at The Glue Factory finished post-production in 2009 and after an award-winning festival run was released through Prescreen.com, Passion River Films and Indie Rights for online distribution.

Boppin At The Glue Factory

Why?
When director Jeff Orgill discovered his video camera was missing and had been pawned by his junkie friend and roommate he was inspired to explore the relationship between addiction, friendship and co-dependency. Orgill fathomed issues about complicity, enabling behavior, trust and betrayal as he grappled with the personal horror of finding your best friend was not who he appeared to be. By transposing his personal predicament to the world of health care in an old age facility, Orgill was able to get some needed distance from this painful personal story, working in a more social and satirical commentary about a bleak American institution – the “old folks home” AKA “the glue factory.”

Boppin at the Glue Factory

How?
Boppin’ at The Glue Factory is available on VOD and DVD.

Captain America Steve Rogers Issue1As much as I love Sam Wilson, I have to admit I’m glad to see Steve Rogers back in the blue and red and stripes. And I’m sorta happy that Marvel is taking things to a new level with Captain America and not feeling forced to have just one. Why not expand to multiple Captain Americas? The world is a big place and can use more true heroes.

The new series, which will premiere on Free Comic Book Day will be by the creative team of writer Nick Spencer and artist Jesus Saiz. Spencer also writes Sam Wilson: Captain America, and will continue to do so.

The writer described the approach to the series on Marvel.com and how it differs from Sam Wilson: Captain America; “I get to tell two very different kinds of Captain America stories. If you’re liking what we’re doing in Captain America: Sam Wilson, with a more topical, of-the-moment take, we’ve got a lot more of that coming your way; but if you’re looking for that classic, timeless version, the one that’s steeped in the Greatest Generation with Cap fighting the face of true evil, now we’ve got that for you as well. I think they’ll complement each other nicely.”

Are you excited that Steve Rogers is going to be Captain America again?

Zombie Beach

Poster of Zombie BeachOkay, 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)

You can watch Zombie Beach for free here! Leave a comment with your thoughts on the flick! And have you found any awesome horror movies that are available to watch online for free? Share them in our comments!
