Brian and Chris got away from the madness long enough to do three more reviews of the films they’ve seen at Fantastic Fest, the world’s best film festival…

 

THE BABADOOK

A widowed mother can barely keep up with her manic son as it is but when a mysterious book about a boogeyman like creature called “The Babadook” shows up out of nowhere, she fears she may be losing her own sanity as the darkness creeps in.

 

LOST SOUL: THE DOOMED JOURNEY OF RICHARD STANLEY’S ISLAND OF DOCTOR MOREAU

Ever seen “The Island of Doctor Moreau” with Val Kilmer and Marlin Brando? Total car wreck of a movie, right? Well believe me, you have NO idea. This documentary takes a look at the fascinating guy Richard Stanley, the ORIGINAL director of the film, what his very different vision was of it, and examines all the horrific behind-the-scenes stuff that went down during the making of it.

 

REDEEMER

Chilean martial arts super-star and Fantastic Fest darling Marco Zaror returns in his latest film playing a broken man and former hitman who is killing criminals all over the place in his quest for some kind of redemption. Much impressive ass-kicking follows.

 

And here’s a link to the video our own Brian Salisbury playing a very dangerous game of kick-the-can with Marko Zaror during the Redeemer introduction. Somehow, he’s still alive.

 

We’ve got tons more reviews coming for you so keep your eyes peeled for the “Infestation” logo on ONEOFUS.NET!

Written by

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
