I have always been in to discovering cool and new horror films to watch since I started doing Eddie’s 31 Days Of Halloween on this blog. One year, a film randomly followed me on Twitter after I was posting some of the articles and the idea of the film sounded really good. The title of the film was Where The Devil Dwells, but I could never find where to watch the film until now and that is why it is today’s film. When Lenard (Walter Peña) was a child, his father Oren (David O’Hara) was a mass murdering psycho serial killer who was presumed dead after it was reported he was shot. That left Lenard in a very bad place and in 1989, years after the murder, he is placed on house arrest in the old family home, but now he suffers from schizophrenia. Soon, Lenard’s father begins to reappear in his life claiming that he is once again going to kill. Now Lenard has to figure out if this is really happening or if it’s just a part of his delusion. The film also stars Scott Anthony Leet (The Hangover Part III) as Don Miller, Alexis Raben (Miss March) as Mitzi, Rob Macie (Happy Endings) as Renaldo, Andrew Patrick Ralston (The People Vs O.J. Simpson) as Vincent Hart, Greg Bryan (Castle) as Mailman, and the film was directed by Marc-Andre Samson (Interstate). To see the rest of the review, please click here to go to Moshpits and Movies.
Day 198: Justice League- The Flashpoint Paradox (2013)
If we have learned anything from past films that involves time travel is that you never change anything from the past because you risk screwing up the present timeline you live in. That is definitely the case with today’s film Justice League- The Flashpoint Paradox. Barry Allen (Justin Chambers) a.k.a. The Flash has lost his mother and after an encounter with Professor Zoom (C. Thomas Howell), the world as Barry knew it has changed drastically. Bruce Wayne (Kevin Conroy) was murdered instead of his parents, Aquaman (Cary Elwes) and Wonder Woman (Vanessa Marshall) are at war with each other, and Superman (Sam Daly) is no where to be found in Metropolis. Now, it’s up to Barry to try and figure out exactly what happened so that he can change it back to bring back the world that he knew. The film also stars Michael B. Jordan (The Fantastic Four) as Cyborg, Kevin McKidd (Trainspotting) as Thomas Wayne, Dee Bradley Baker (American Dad!) as Etrigan the Demon, Steve Blum (The Boxtrolls) as Lex Luthor/Captain Thunder, Nathan Fillion (Castle) as Hal Jordan, Ron Perlman (Hellboy) as Deathstroke, James Patrick Stuart (The Penguins Of Madagascar) as Captain Boomerang, Hynden Walch (Adventure Time) as Yo-Yo, and the film was directed by Jay Oliva (Batman Vs Robin).
First of all, I just want to say that Marvel may be winning the motion picture war, but DC definitely has Animated films and TV shows on lock. DC has really produced some of the most memorable animated films of the last ten or so years and this is definitely one of them. One thing that I wasn’t surprised about after watching the film was that the rating the film received was PG-13. You have to see the film for yourself to know why, but it is definitely a violent film.You’ll be shocked by some of the scenes of violence, but not in a bad way if you get what I mean. I really loved the concept of what if Bruce Wayne had died which then turned his father into Batman and his mother into The Joker. There is a giant war going on that pins villains and superheroes against each other as Wonder Woman wages war against Aquaman. Then there is the shocking discovery of Superman and what he looks and acts like in the film which is a must see. The one thing that frustrated me is that you made it obvious that Martha Wayne is The Joker, but you never show her at all during the film. The only reason it upsets me is because The Joker is my all time favorite villain. The big reveal at the end of the film is where it’s at and I am not going to give it away, but it’s a must see for anyone that enjoys smart writing. This is definitely one of my favorite DC animated films besides the Suicide Squad one that is out and the Batman: Under The Red Hood. I am going to give this one an A- for a final grade.
