Monday Movie Review - THE BELKO EXPERIMENT

The subtitle at the top of the poster says it all. "Office Spaces Meets Battle Royale". Add "in Bogota, Columbia".

The film begins on a typical Monday morning at this multi-storied office building that's situated in the middle of nowhere, and surrounded by armed guards. We soon meet a wide array of characters, most of whom will be nothing more than kill fodder once the experiment begins. However, there are a handful of people we come to know more about because they're the "heroes". And their deaths or survival will then mean something to us, the audience.

Basically, this movie is a set-up simply for the explosive amount of carnage that ensues. It's bloody and violent, and non-stop once everyone realizes that it's either kill or be killed. The "winner" is pretty predictable, but I have to say I was glued to the screen throughout. And the final ten seconds of the flick were a surprise.

If you want mindless slaughtering, I wholeheartedly recommend that you

In fact, rent one of the PURGE movies, too, and make it double feature.

Monday Movie Review - RAW

A young woman follows in the footsteps of her parents and older sister, and enrolls in an exclusive veterinary college. There, she and her fellow freshmen undergo a ritual hazing which involves the eating of raw animal parts. However, Justine and her family are vegetarians. Despite her initial revulsion, she soon finds herself unable to resist gorging on more raw flesh...and soon develops a craving for the human kind.

This French flick has subtitles, in case you didn't know. It's slow in many places. Older sister is still at the college, and tries to help her sister learn to cope, but with sinister consequences. And, frankly, I didn't see the ending coming.

It's not as bloody as one might suspect, given the topic. RAW is more of a psychological drama, but it does include some very graphic scenes other than cannibalism. The hazing rituals are degrading, and I honestly wish such "traditions" on college campuses would stop. But I have to admit that such activities make for perfect horror movie fodder.

Which is why my recommendation is that you

Short Film: FIREBASE

Link to video on YouTube here.

(From Horror-Movies.CA)

Over the past month or so, Neill Blomkamp’s Oats Studios have truly delivered the goods and better yet, they’re entirely free to view! But what makes it even more interesting is that they’re experimenting with a new model in which they’re releasing content on Steam with the option to purchase a DLC. The DLC section varies from concept art to high resolutions of the short films themselves, there is a bunch of stuff on there that could potentially open many doors but, then again maybe not. It basically comes down to you, the fans, if this is something that makes sense and you want more of this, let them know.
So, with a new week brings us another slice of Oats goodness in the form of their latest short, Firebase. It depicts an alternate Vietnam war and it’s highly ambitious. I won’t spoil it, so I suggest that you check it out below and let us or better yet, them know what you think. And remember, be sure to check out their Steam page for extra content.
Firebase stars Steve Boyle, Nic Rhind, Robert Hobbs, and Tyler Johnston.
For more information, hit up their official Facebook page and throw them a ‘like’.
