Otis ‘n’ Dwayne looks trashy, nasty & tasty

Friday, February 5th, 2010 by Vomitron -

We’ve kindly been brought to the attention of a new independent film in the final stages of post-production, named Otis ‘n’ Dwayne.

Otis n Dwayne looks trashy, nasty & tasty   OnD bannerCR news

The synopsis reads a little like this:

“Two androgynous creatures embark on a psychotronic journey of self-discovery in a cruel, unusual and mostly male world. This comedy about two gay androids abandoned in a New Jersey suburb inhabited by God, the devil, and other lowlifes is a f*cked up movie for f*cked up times.”

S&Man

S&Man   SMan poster 02 93x120 reviews horror documentary Director: J.T. Petty
Writer
: J.T. Petty
Release Year: 2006

The horror of voyeurism.

A documentary on the way that movies in general and horror in particular is an outlet for our voyeuristic tendencies. There are interviews with author Carol J. Clover, well-known low-budget gore filmmakers Fred Vogel and Bill Zebub as well as some lesser-known folks in the industry or experts on psychology. The interviews are quite interesting, though I do find Carol J. Clover to be annoying, and we get a lot of time with several interesting directors and one actress, Debbie D, but one of the most interesting and creepy is an underground director who makes naturalistic films about a man who stalks and kills young women….

Star Wreck: In the Pirkinning

Star Wreck: In the Pirkinning   star wreck 87x120 full length movies Director: Timo Vuorensola
Writer: Rudi Airisto, Jarmo Puskala, Samuli Torssonen (creator)
Release Year: 2005

I normally dislike parodies and most indie movies, but this one is an exception to the rule.  Star Wreck is a no-budget movie featuring effects that can rival Hollywood blockbusters and certainly beats them in terms of wit, story, humour and, well, everything else. Except maybe the acting from some of the less important characters but that’s to be expected when they’re mostly friends  and relatives.
