FILM REVIEW

Mega Shark Vs Crocosaurus
The title is a great indication as to the quality of this movie. If you like B-movies, then you’ll find some entertainment in this, but if you don’t, then you’ll want to watch something else except for this movie. For me, I didn’t mind it. It’s got a certain ‘so-bad-it’s-good’ feel to it, which I enjoyed. As the title suggests, it’s a creature mash-up and the plot is nothing good. The acting is bad and the CGI is worse. But as I said, this film has a certain ‘so-bad-it’s-good’ feel to it.

 

 

Mega Shark Vs Giant Octopus
As with Mega Shark Vs Crocosaurus, this is a B-movie with laughably awful CGI creatures, bad acting and basic plotting. If you enjoy these types of films, then you’ll enjoy this film, but it’s not good. You know what the film is about from the title and if you want a ‘s-good-it’s-bad’ movie, then you’ll have fun with this.

 

 

TerrorVision
We open on a logo Metro Goldwyn, so it is quite high class. A Charles Band Production? Wow, wasn't expecting that. Some nice visual effects there. Practical, as well. Nice. So, right off the bat this film seems very cheesy. I like the name of the film: TerrorVision. Now, we have the credits. That opening scene set up the creature, basically. This film is very 1980's. At this moment, it seems more of a satirical comedy than a horror film. I guess it's meant to be a comedy horror. It's not to be taken seriously. I like the concept to this film, about an alien coming through the TV. It's interesting. Something about this film makes it feel fake. It looks fake to me, like its one of those TV commercials, but I think that makes it more interesting. Here come more special effects. They're passable. Not great, but not terrible. Same as the acting. This film is basically a satire on television, and it is quite funny. It's also entertaining to watch, which is great. The script isn't great, but it's got some charm. This is more fun than I thought it would be. It's a fun B movie. I love practical effects and these effects, the monster effects, are good.

Blood Orange
Blood Orange is about a couple who live in this luxury house in Spain and are rich. A man arrives who we learn is the step-child of the woman and he demands to have his inheritance which the woman has taken. Complications ensue. I really enjoyed this film. It’s a thriller which builds in suspense, getting more tense as it goes. The bloodbath (literally) is also shot against beautiful vistas of the surrounding country. The acting is great, and I could easily say that this film could have been a contender in winning awards for the best film. It’s a well-made, twisty thriller, which leaves you on the edge. I highly recommend this film.
