REVIEW: Stillwater

Published

on

Nino Aldi’s mystery thriller ‘Stillwater’ puts the viewer in the midst of an unraveling mystery, one that has dangerous consequences for those involved.

“A weekend camping trip among six old friends in Northern Minnesota’s “Boundary Waters” turns tragic after one dies under mysterious circumstances, triggering further turmoil as they attempt to unmask the killer within their own group.”

Tyler Ritter, Carlena Britch, Eric Michael Roy star in this movie that captures you attention from the start and manages to keep it, despite some sloppiness, until the end, finishing things off with a dramatic and surprising twist.

Dawson (Ritter) is dealing with his recent divorce from Ashley, who cheated on him, and is venturing to a camping trip reunion with his long time friends Willie (Paul Elia), Jack (Travis Quentin Young), Cooper (Ryan Vincent), Richie (Nino Aldi), and Leech (Eric Michael Roy) where they plan to drink, relive old times, and unwind.

Things immediately go off the rails when Leech brings along uninvited guests Wizard (Mike Foy), Fauna (Carlena Britch), and Vera (Georgie Guinane) who don’t immediately come off friendly, seem disconnected and awkward, and throw the mood of the reunion off.

As the night rolls in, the group starts to party and things elevate when Wizard supplies some heavier drugs that send the party to a whole new level, and knocks them out only to awake with foggy memories.

When the group can’t find Cooper, things start getting tense, only getting more tense when they discover Cooper’s body.

The finger pointing beings and the paranoia sets in, adding a deep layer of mystery that will keep you guessing.

If you can ignore a slightly messy storyline, which doesn’t detract from the film, the movie is solid with good performances from a talented cast.

Syfy’s “Deadly Class” Teaser Is Out

Published

on

A new teaser for SyFy’s “Deadly Class” has arrived and it features some very familiar music.

For those diehard horror fans, you’ll recognize Dramarama’s “Anything, Anything”, which was a staple in A Nightmare on Elm Street: The Dream Master. Seeing as the show is set in the 1920s, when A Nightmare On Elm Street was at it’s height of popularity, it seems fitting to make the reference.

“Set in a dark, comic book world against the backdrop of late 80s counter culture, DEADLY CLASS follows a homeless teen recruited into a storied elite private school where the world’s top crime families send their next generations. Maintaining his moral code while surviving a ruthless curriculum, vicious social cliques and his own adolescent uncertainties soon proves to be vital. Based on the best-selling 2014 Image Comics graphic novel, DEADLY CLASS is a coming of age journey full of ancient mystery and teen angst.”

John Andreas Andersen’s ‘The Quake’ is set to arrive in  limited theaters, On Demand, iTunes and Amazon Prime Video December 14, 2018, but a new clip has surfaced to give you a glimpse into what’s in store when the movie finally drops.

According to the synopsis:

“In 1904 an earthquake with a 5.4 magnitude on the Richter scale shook Oslo. Its epicenter was in the Oslo Rift which runs directly through the Norwegian capital. There are recorded quakes from the rift on a daily basis and geologists cannot be sure, but arguments indicate that we can expect major future earthquakes in this area. When – nobody can say for certain – but we know that the density of people and infrastructure in Oslo is significantly more vulnerable today than in 1904.”
