low budget throwback horror flick i've taken notice of and have some interest in... features Lynn Lowry among others, plot is as described - 'George Rossi, who immigrated to the US and served in the Vietnam war, is now a superintendent of a Queens' apartment building. He finds himself quickly slipping into a depraved world that is fueled by the tenants of the building.'

always on the lookout and hope to support solid low budget horror... looking to purchase this one soon, if i do, i'll throw the review and feedback up a.s.a.p, its getting plenty of solid reviews all over.

trailer is here... http://youtu.be/9-i_HxdcfaY

Good luck with this one. That poster looks pretty (and I mean bare-bones) cheap. I think the student film I worked on with friends could have whipped something up more stylish than that! The redheaded girl in the trailer is cute, but aside from that it didn't do much to steer me away from my initial reaction. I look forward to your review, though!

I thought this was gonna be about the Joe Pesci movie.

haha, the cheesy poster i threw up is one of the earlier teaser type ones I believe, it isn't the one being used 'officially', still not sure how that'd hold up to you though.

if pesci and joe spinnell from maniac had a lovechild, this dude could be it?

i ended up purchasing this at the last chiller movie convention i attended back in october (directly from one of the actresses in the movie, ruby larocca, and got the dvd signed).

can't say it delivered though. i'm not up for writing tons of thoughts and words on it, but it just didn't work for me - no matter what with low budget I can always admire the heart & dedication involved, and I do likewise think it was a good effort, but just failed. Had nothing to do with lack of budget or such either, just story, dialogue, everything. Would've loved to help hype this up and support it more, but don't feel justified in doing so. Pass on it.

I wasn't feeling it myself with the trailer, but I think that it is an awesome story to hear about how you bought the film. Gotta love those conventions!

indeed, you do! since you are from Ohio, do you go to any of the cons yourself? Cinema Wasteland or Horrorhound etc? The line-up for the upcoming Horrorhound is awesome and I hear very positive things about CW equally (but more-so for just being all around laid back/fun atmosphere). I always have wanted to get out to one (or both) of those, but the flights always are expensive and/or work interferes etc.,

Unfortunately, I've only been to the World Zombie Day, but it was amazing! Lots and lots of fun. I'm not actually from Ohio, but about 20 minutes from there in PA. My Location is actually a reference to A Nightmare On Elm Street. Hopefully I will have an opportunity to head over to one in the future, though!

PS: I bought my copy of The Howling 2: Your Sister Is A Werewolf from Zombie Day after meeting Ken Foree. :)

ahhh okay, totally missed the springwood referencing haha.

i brought along my Howling II dvd to the last convention I went to in hopes to get Reb Brown sign it but his pricing was way too high for me to go along with and I didn't get it signed or such. He seemed to be a really nice/fun guy to talk with and such but I didn't agree with the pricing.

MisoGenie 02-22-2012 08:20 PM

I don't really agree with autograph pricings at all, to be honest. It's a measley signature. I understand that they have to make money, but maybe five bucks, tops. Some of the prices out there for these actors are just ridiculous! I can't blame you on that one at all.
