Another Look Inside The Walking Dead Season 3 Finale and a Tease of What's Ahead in Season 4We’re not quite ready to close the door on Season 3 of “The Walking Dead”, and AMC isn’t either as they’ve just released another making-of video that takes us inside the prison assault along with a look ahead at Season 4 with the cast and crew.

We also have the best moments from the season finale of “Talking Dead,” in which Chris Hardwick discusses “Welcome to the Tombs” with guests Chad L. Coleman (Tyreese), Yvette Nicole Brown, and Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon), along with a few tidbits from TV Guide’s recent interview with The Walking Dead comics creator Robert Kirkman, who’s also an executive producer on the TV series. Be sure to hit the link at the bottom of the page for the whole thing, and look for “The Walking Dead” to return for Season 4 on AMC in October.

Why kill off Andrea now? She’s still around in the comics!
Kirkman:
The unfortunate thing about the way these things work is that we’re not really going to see the effects or the results of that death until we come back for Season 4. It’s going to have very interesting effects on all of the characters, especially on Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and how he operates moving forward. [That’s] going to be one of the big changes for next season.

Do you worry about alienating fans of the comics when you make such big changes?
Kirkman:
No. I think fans of the comics recognize that this show is a different animal… We are still very much following the path of the comic book, and you’ll see a lot of that in Season 4… I think it’s cool that there are differences that are going to make the show as dramatic, startling, and unpredictable as the comic book was the first time you read it. That’s really what we’re going after.

Will the dynamic change now that the group has gotten even larger?
Kirkman:
A large group brings with it a need for more resources, but also more assets within the group. They could also, theoretically, accomplish more. There’s a lot to be done with these people in Season 4.

What will the role of The Governor be in Season 4?
Kirkman:
That will have to remain shrouded in mystery for the time being. But I will say it’s going to be very different. We have The Governor, we have Rick, we have the prison. These are elements from Season 3, but everything is going to be radically changed and radically different in some very cool ways. I wouldn’t expect the same conflict or the same stories coming into Season 4. Things are going to be evolving quite a bit between seasons.

What kind of threat will the group be facing next season?
Kirkman:
Walkers are definitely still going to be in the mix, [but] this question is more than likely going to have to wait for a few months until we’re more ready to talk about Season 4. But we advanced things in the third season to where humans were a more present threat than the zombies, and that may continue into Season 4… We’ll see a lot of new elements and a lot of new places. The prison is still going to be present, but maybe not in the way people expect.

What about character interactions? Michonne and Rick? And what about Daryl?
Kirkman:
[Michonne and Rick] have a tremendously close relationship in the comic book series, [and] we’re on the road towards building that in the show. I think we can expect these two characters to be working together a lot more in the future. It’s entirely possible that we may see Daryl emerge in [more of] a leadership role than he had this season. [As for Carl] Rick’s got his work cut out for him… which is a very big part of Season 4.

Any hints of how the show will be different with Scott Gimple as showrunner?
Kirkman:
Scott has really been pushing, and he’s going to take charge of, making sure…every character has big moments — to really amp up the character development… getting to know the characters more and teasing a little bit more emotion into the stories is what we’re striving to do in Season 4… We all recognize that it’s important to have lighter moments in the show, and I think that Season 4 will definitely have a few of those. Not too many, but a few of those from time to time.

“The Walking Dead” Episode 3.16 – “Welcome to the Tombs” (aired 3/31/13)
Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and the group have to seriously consider if the prison is worth defending as the Governor’s (David Morrissey) impending attack looms over their heads. Written by Glen Mazzara; directed by Ernest Dickerson.

Victor Crowley Blu-ray Review – Killer Special Features Make This a Must-Own

Published

on

Starring Parry Shen, Kane Hodder, Laura Ortiz, Dave Sheridan, Felissa Rose, and Tiffany Shepis

Directed by Adam Green

Distributed by Dark Sky Films


Like many of you horror fans out there, I was surprised as hell when Adam Green announced that there was not only going to be the fourth entry in his famed Hatchet series but that the movie had already been filmed and was going to be screening across the country.

Of course, I wanted to get to one of those screenings as soon as possible, but unfortunately, there were no events in my neck of the woods here in Gainesville, Fl., and so I had to bide my time and await the Blu-ray.

Then a few days ago, the Blu-ray for Victor Crowley landed on my doorstep and I jumped right into watching the film. Short story, I loved it. But we’ll get into all of that more in-depth below. For now, let’s do a quick rundown on the film for those two or three horror fans out there who aren’t familiar with the film and its premise.

Victor Crowley is the fourth entry in the Hatchet series, a franchise that follows the tale of a deformed man that accidentally met the wrong end of his father’s hatchet long ago and now roams the Louisiana swamp each night as a “Repeater”, aka a ghost that doesn’t know it is dead and thus cannot be killed. Ever. Well, maybe not ever. After all, Victor was supposedly killed at the end of Hatchet III by a combination of Danielle Harris, his father’s ashes, and a grenade launcher. Dead to rights, right? Not so much.

In this fourth entry/reboot, a group of indie horror filmmakers, lead by the adorable Katie Booth, accidentally resurrect Crowley just as the original trilogy’s lone survivor (Parry Shen) is visiting the swamp one final time in the name of cold hard cash. Long story short, Shen’s plane crashes with his agent (Felissa Rose), his ex-wife (Krystal Joy Brown), and her film crew in tow. Some survive the initial crash, some don’t. As you can imagine, the lucky ones died first.

Victor Crowley is a true return to form for Adam Green, who sat out of the director’s chair on the third film. As always, Green doesn’t shy away from the over-the-top comedy and gore the franchise is well known for. The blood rages and the sight-gags hit fast and unexpectedly. And, speaking of the sight-gags, there’s evidently a shot in this Blu-ray version of the film that was cut from the “Unrated” version released on VOD. The shot is one I won’t spoil here, but for the sake of viewing Green’s initial vision alone, the Blu-ray for Victor Crowley is really the only way to own this film. Don’t get me wrong, there are (many) more reasons to shell out the cash for this Blu-ray, but I’ll get into those soon.

Back to the film itself, what makes this fourth entry in the series one of the very best Hatchet films (if not THE best) is Adam Green’s honesty. Not only does he conquer a few demons with the ex-wife subplot, but he gives us a truly tragic moment via Tiffany Shepis’ character that had me in stunned silence. Her death is not an easy kill to pull off in a notoriously over-the-top slasher series, but it earned mucho respect from this guy.

Basically, if you loved the original trilogy, you will love this one as well. If you mildly enjoyed the other films, this one will surely make you a fan. Slow clap, Adam Green.

Special Features:

Let it be known that I’m a massive fan of fly-on-the-wall filmmaking documentaries. Like many of you out there, I find film production to be utterly fascinating and thus have grown a little tired of the typical making-of featurettes we get on Blu-rays. You know the ones. The director talks about his vision for the film, the cast say how much fun they had on-set with the other actors and crew, and we get cutaways to people dancing and trying to kiss the behind-the-scenes camera – all usually set to upbeat music.

While I’ll take what I can get, these kinds of behind-the-scenes features have grown to be little more than tiresome and superficial. But no worries here my friends as Adam Green has pulled out all the BS and given us a full-length, 90-minute behind-the-scenes feature called “Fly on the Wall” that shows it how it really is on the set.

Highlights include new Hatchet D.P. Jan-Michael Losada, who took over for Will Barratt this time around, who is little less than a f*cking hilarious rockstar, a front row seat to the making of Felissa Rose’s death scene, a creepy-cool train ghost story prank by Green, a clever impromptu song via Krystal Joy Brown (Sabrina), and a fun bit towards the end where Green and the SFX crew create the “gore inserts” in (basically) the backyard after filming. Good times all around.

The documentary then ends with the Facebook Live video of Adam Green announcing Victor Crowley‘s surprise premiere at that Hatchet 10th Anniversary screening. A great way to end a killer making-of documentary making his disc a must-own for this special feature alone.

But wait, it gets better. On top of the film itself and the above-mentioned “Fly on the Wall” documentary, the disc features an extensive interview with Adam Green called “Raising the Dead… Again.” This interview is basically Green going over the same speech he gave to the crowd at the surprise unveiling shown at the end of the “Fly on the Wall” doc, but that said, it’s great to hear Green tells his inspiring story to us directly.

So while this feature treads water all of us have been through below (especially fans of Green’s podcast The Movie Crypt), Green is always so charming and brutally honest that we never get tired of him telling us the truth about the ins-and-outs of crafting horror films in this day and age. Again, good stuff.

Additionally, the disc also boasts two audio commentaries, one with Adam Green and actors Parry Shen, Laura Ortiz, and Dave Sheridan, and another “technical” commentary with Adam Green, cinematographer Jan-Michael Losada, editor Matt Latham, and make-up effects artist Robert Pendergraft.

Add in the film’s teaser and trailer, and Victor Crowley is a must-own on Blu-ray.

Special features:

  • Audio commentary with writer/director Adam Green and actors Parry Shen, Laura Ortiz, and Dave Sheridan
  • Audio commentary with writer/director Adam Green, cinematographer Jan-Michael Losada, editor Matt Latham, and make-up effects artist Robert Pendergraft
  • Raising the Dead… Again – Extensive interview with writer/director Adam Green
  • Behind the Scenes – Hour-long making-of featurette

3.5

Summary

One of the best, if not THE best, entries in the Hatchet series, with special features that are in-depth and a blast (and considering all other versions of the film have been castrated for content), this Blu-ray is really the only way to own Adam Green’s Victor Crowley.
