The Dollmaker Short Film Review – Welcome to Heebie Jeebie City!

Published

on

Starring Perri Lauren, Sean Meehan, Dan Berkey

Directed by Alan Lougher


The loss of a young child drives a mother to take a set of unusual measures to preserve his memory, and all it takes is one call to The Dollmaker.

When the short film by Alan Lougher opens up, we see a rather disturbing image of a little boy inside a casket, and the sound of a grieving mom speaking with an unidentified man in the background – he’s requesting something personal of the child to help “finish” his product, and it’s not before long that mom has her little boy back…well, kind of. What remains of the child is the representation of his former self, although it’s contained within the frame of a not-so-attractive doll, and the boy’s father isn’t a believer in this type of hocus-pocus (or the price to have this constructed, either). The doll comes with a specific set of instructions, but most importantly, you cannot spend more than one hour a day with the doll, or else you’ll go mad thinking that the soul inside of it is actually the person that you lost – sounds reasonable, doesn’t it?

Well this is just too good to be true for Mommy, and as the short film progresses, we’ll just have to wait and see what happens to her mind – it’s ultimately a depressing scenario, but Lougher gives it that creepy feel, almost like visiting a relative’s home and seeing their dearly departed pet stuffed and staring at you over the fireplace – HEEBIE-JEEBIE CITY, if you ask me. All in all, the quickie is gloomy, but ultimately chilling in nature, and is most definitely worth a watch, and if I might use a quote from one of my favorite films to apply to this subject matter: “Sometimes…dead is better.”

Chiller Channel Will Be Discontinued This January

Published

on

Back in March of 2007, the Chiller horror channel was launched. The channel was filled with wall-to-wall horror movies and TV shows.

The channel even tried their hand at original scripted content recently with the series “Slasher, starring Kaite McGrath. The second season just premiered on Netflix.

But it seems like today we have bad news. The end of an era. NBC has decided to shut down the Chiller Channel effective beginning on January 1, 2018.

This news comes to us via the TV Answer Man, with an NBC spokesperson telling the site, “NBC Universal will discontinue Chiller as of January 1, 2018.”

The spokesperson didn’t give any further details on the decision but many believe it has everything to do with Verizon, Charter, and Dish dropping the channel earlier this year.

While those drops weren’t catastrophic, the final nail in the coffin came recently when Cox dropped the channel, effectively pulling it out of around 40 million homes.

Are you sad to see the Chiller channel canceled? How often did you watch content via Chiller? Make sure to hit us up and let us know in the comments below.

Another WolfCop Gets Another Poster via The Dude Designs

Published

on

It was only last week that we shared the bloody new trailer for writer-director Lowell Dean’s upcoming sequel to his hit horror-comedy flick WolfCop.

Today we have another poster for Another WolfCop.

This new poster comes to us from one of my current favorite poster artists, Tom “The Dude” Hodge. If you’re unfamiliar with the name, you surely know his work. To refamiliarize yourself, you can check out more of his posters right here.

Below you will find his new poster for Another WolfCop, along with the flick’s newest trailer. After that make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think in the comments!

The film is written and directed by Lowell Dean, produced by Bernie Hernando, Deborah Marks, and Hugh Patterson, and distributed worldwide by Cineplex.

Another WolfCop co-stars Amy Matysio, Jonathan Cherry, and Serena Miller. The film also features special appearances from Canadian music icon Gowan and legendary filmmaker Kevin Smith. It was executive produced by Sean Buckley, J. Joly, Bill Marks, Brian Wideen, Michael Kennedy, and Michael Hirsch.

The film is slated for a wide Cineplex theatrical release on Friday, December 8, 2017, with the film seeing a Blu-ray/DVD/Digital home entertainment release through A71 and Black Fawn in 2018.

Synopsis:
A month has passed since the eclipse transformed hard-drinking Officer Lou Garou into the crime-fighting hellion WolfCop. Although the Shape Shifters controlling the town have been extinguished, Woodhaven is far from returning to normal. Lou’s liquor-fueled antics and full moon outbursts are seriously testing his relationship with Officer Tina Walsh – the new Chief of Police. An old friend has mysteriously reappeared with a truly bizarre secret to share, and a homicidal new villain has emerged from the shadows looking to finish what the Shape Shifters started. To defeat this lethal adversary, it will take more than a lone wolf packing a pistol.

Prepare for the next chapter of WolfCop that will be more dirty and hairy than the original! Consider yourself warned.
