reckless

I am chagrined to confess I have never seen THE DISAPPEARANCE OF ALICE CREED, even though it’s been sitting on my shelf for months. I’ve heard good things, though. When I found out RECKLESS was a sort of foreign retelling of the same story, my curiosity got the best of me, and I decided to take a look. I’m happy to report RECKLESS is a riveting and thrilling film, a true masterpiece of crime cinema!

If you are not familiar with RECKLESS, here is the plot synopsis courtesy of Artsploitation Films:

RECKLESS [aka Bloedlink] is a riveting retelling of a story first explored in the 2009 thriller ‘The Disappearance of Alice Creed’, but director Joram Lürsen’s new version is even more stylish, sexually charged, and tightly wound than its source of inspiration. Laura Temming wakes up to find herself bound to a bed in a sound-insulated vacant apartment. Two masked men strip the clothes from her body, place her in a track suit, and take photos that will be used to obtain ransom money from Laura’s wealthy father. As the clock ticks, Laura discovers that she may have a relationship with one of the kidnappers that she never expected…and that the two men may have a relationship with each other that no one could have expected. With more twists than one could imagine, RECKLESS is ingeniously seductive.

I love everything about this movie, which is why I am happily giving it five out of five stars. It is that good.

The cinematography in RECKLESS is great, and the film looks tight onscreen. The direction is outstanding, and it shows in the fluid way the movie moves along. This is a 90 minute film, but the credits were rolling before I knew it.

The acting is excellent as well, with the whole cast giving top notch performances. Tygo Gernandt and Marwan Kenzari portray the kidnappers, while Sarah Chronis plays the victim. I am not familiar with their previous work, but I hope to see more of them in the future.

The story is the big winner in RECKLESS, though. It is chocked full of suspense and tension. There are also several twists that occur throughout, and each is a welcome surprise. I stayed glued to my screen for the entirety of the film, eager to see what was going to happen and hoping I hadn’t missed anything.

RECKLESS is a major win for me, and I highly recommend it. It is a foreign film with English subtitles and no dub-over, so be ready to read the dialogue. But that does not detract from the film at all. Give this one a look for sure. It is available now.

Book Review – Midian Unmade: Tales of Clive Barker’s Nightbreed

Midian Unmade: Tales of Clive Barker’s Nightbreed
by various authors
Edited by Joseph Nassise & Del Howison
Publisher: Tor Books
Release Date: July 28, 2015

midian

Clive Barker has always been a huge inspiration to me. In fact, he is one of the primary reasons I started writing. I’ve read many, if not most, of his titles: WEAVEWORLD, THE GREAT AND SECRET SHOW, THE DAMNATION GAME, IMAJICA, just to name a few. Curiously, I waited until I was in my 20s to read CABAL, the novella which was the basis for the film NIGHTBREED. But out of all of Barker’s works, CABAL stuck with me the most. I’m not sure why, but something about it resonated deep within me, as it still does today.

Because of this deeply-rooted connection, I was ecstatic to learn an anthology was in the works that showcased the fates of some of CABAL’s residents. I often wonder what happens to characters in single-book stories after the last page is turned, and this collection is an excellent glimpse into the lives of some of the Tribes of the Moon from Barker’s iconic book. MIDIAN UNMADE is the title of this anthology, and it is nothing short of masterful.

If you are not familiar with MIDIAN UNMADE, here is the plot synopsis courtesy of Tor Books:

Clive Barker’s Nightbreed has been controversial since the moment it was released in a version edited by the studio and roundly condemned by Barker, who wrote and directed the film. A virtually instant cult film, Nightbreed–based on Barker’s novella, Cabal–was nominated for three Saturn Awards and won several prizes at European film festival.

The impact of Nightbreed goes beyond the screen; along with Cabal and Barker’s seminal The Books of Blood, it has inspired many horror writers, some of whom have gathered in this tribute anthology. Midian Unmade tells the stories of the Nightbreed after the fall of their city, Midian. Driven from their homes, their friends and family members slain before their eyes, the monsters become a mostly-hidden diaspora. Some are hunted; others, hunters. Some seek refuge. Others want revenge.

Contributors to Midian Unmade include: Karl Alexander, author of the classic novel Time After Time; actor, writer, and director Amber Benson (Tara Maclay on Buffy the Vampire Slayer); New York Times bestselling author Nancy Holder; Hugo and John W. Campbell Award-winner Seanan McGuire; Bram Stoker Award winner Weston Ochse, David J. Schow, winner of the World Fantasy Award, writer of the screenplay for The Crow; New York Times bestselling writer Stephen Woodworth; and many more–23 stories in all.

With an introduction by Clive Barker, this is an outstanding collection of original horror short stories in a dazzling variety of styles.

It’s been over 15 years since I read CABAL, but just writing about is stoking my desire to revisit it. The book was a shining beacon in a dark part of my life, therefore it means a lot to me on several levels.

The stories in MIDIAN UNMADE are excellent tributes to Barker and his creation. Each is written with meticulous care, fleshed out perfectly and written in a style that does Barker justice. The diversity of voices help to give a new aspect to the Nightbreed world, as does the originality of each tale. And although the subject matter is a common thread, the stories in this collection are as different as their storytellers.

If I were forced to find a favorite tale in this collection, I simply could not pick one. They are all good, and they deserve recognition. I hope Barker himself gives a shout out to the authors in this anthology, as they have helped broaden the scope of his Nightbreed creation. In contrast, I cannot find a flaw with the book, either. The stories are excellent, the characters are epic, and the collection is just about as perfect as a book can be.

MIDIAN UNMADE is a major win for me, and I recommend every horror fan out there snag a copy as soon as possible (the book hits store shelves in two weeks). Dark and imaginative, this is one world you will want to immerse yourself in…but just for a little while. If you stay too long, the Nightbreed might look at you as food.

Movie Review – The Jokesters (2015)

The Jokesters
Directed by AJ Wedding
Courtesy of Random Media & Cinedigm
Release Date: July 21, 2015

thejokestersdvd

When the press release for a film touts it as “CABIN IN THE WOODS and BLAIR WITCH PROJECT meet JACKASS”, there’s no way I’m going to pass up the opportunity to watch it. I’m a big fan of CABIN and BLAIR WITCH, and I confess I’m a sucker for the JACKASS antics, so my interest is doubly piqued by a description like that. THE JOKESTERS press release made such a claim, so I decided to give it a look last night. Unfortunately, the film itself is nowhere near as awesome as the description. The result is a lackluster horror flick that falls flat on its face.

If you are not familiar with THE JOKESTERS, here is the plot synopsis courtesy of Cinedigm:

Four good friends are the members of the successful Internet prank show “PrankMasters”. When their leader, Ethan, announces he is getting married and leaving the group, the rest of the founding members decide to pull off one final stun on their friend’s honeymoon: an elaborate “cabin in the woods” nightmare! What follows is a spiral decent into terror when the prank goes too far and the members of the group get picked off one by one in this tension-filled “found footage” feature film. Who will survive? The tension mounts as each Prankster struggles to make it off of the mountain alive.

I am not going to label THE JOKESTERS as the worst film I’ve seen so far this year, however it’s pretty close. It is a movie filled with promise, yet lacking on almost every level.

THE JOKESTERS is shot in a first-person POV, as are most found footage films, and the camerawork is nothing extraordinary. The production value appears decent, but otherwise it looks like every other lower budget movie. There are literally no attributes that pull this one up from the rest.

The acting is bland and lifeless. The four main characters are annoying more than anything, and I could not find any reason to care about them at all. The ‘pranks’ they pull are ho-hum and boring, which completely destroys the credibility of their successful web show. I was hoping for craziness and off-the-wall…instead, we get one of the guys glued to his go-cart seat. WOW.

The story in THE JOKESTERS has promise, but it never develops in the film. The first hour of the movie is all set-up (the wedding scenes take WAY too much time), so by the time the ‘horror’ starts, the viewer is ready to fall asleep. I literally had to pause the film and stand up for a moment to keep from nodding off. Once the killings start, the film gets a little better, however this only occurs in the last 15-20 minutes…thus, it’s too little, too late.

I wish I had better things to say about THE JOKESTERS. It has an interesting premise and could be a fun film, if it were made by the right people. Sadly, this version is not. I cannot recommend this one with a good conscious, but the film is available now in a variety of formats if you decide to check it out.

Blu-ray Movie Review – The Color Out of Space (2010)

The Color Out of Space
Directed by Huan Vu
Courtesy of BRINK Vision & MVD Distribution
Original Year of Release: 2010
DVD/Blu-ray Release Date: July 7, 2015

The Color

H.P. Lovecraft’s fiction has been the basis for many films, including both original stories and adaptations of his work. Several of these films are very good, including THE UNNAMABLE and CASTLE FREAK, while others are outstanding, such as Stuart Gordon’s RE-ANIMATOR and DAGON. I’m proud to announce Huan Vu’s THE COLOR OUT OF SPACE will join the upper echelon of these excellent Lovecraft adaptations. This film is a brilliant recreation of the story, and I highly recommend giving it a look.

If you are not familiar with THE COLOR OUT OF SPACE, here is the plot synopsis courtesy of BRINK Vision:

Arkham, 1975: Jonathan Davis’ father has disappeared. His tracks lead to Germany, to the Swabian-Franconian Forest where he was stationed after the Second World War. Jonathan sets out to find him and bring him home, but deep in the woods he discovers a dark mystery from the past. Based on H.P. Lovecraft’s short novel “The Color Out of Space”.

I wasn’t sure what to expect going into this one. Several years ago, I watched another adaptation of this particular Lovecraft story, only this one was titled COLOUR FROM THE DARK. It was a good film, but it deviated from the original story quite a bit. This film, on the other hand, stays much closer to the source material.

THE COLOR OUT OF SPACE is shot very well and looks great onscreen. It is presented in black-and-white, except for the strange meteorite globules, which are shown in shimmering color. This stark contrast makes for an interesting viewing experience and heightens the immersive nature of the film.

The acting is very good, however I have to admit I am not familiar with any of the cast. Likewise, the special effects look great as well. I particularly like the CG used for the meteorite globules; this looks impressive, especially when they are shown against the black-and-white backdrop of the rest of the film.

If I were forced to find a flaw with THE COLOR OUT OF SPACE, I might have to mention the odd nature of the first five minutes of the movie. For some reason, these first few minutes seem out of place with the rest. Perhaps this is because they have a different feel and a slightly different look than the rest of the film. Granted, they don’t detract from the movie overall, but I do feel this is worth mentioning.

Otherwise, THE COLOR OUT OF SPACE is a major win for me, and I highly recommend it. Be sure and snag one of the Limited Edition Blu-rays (they only made 1000 copies!); in addition to some slick reversible artwork, it also contains an exclusive newspaper cover insert. Also included on the Blu-ray are:

* A variety of Lovecraft audiobooks
* Dreamlands Trailer
* Making of THE COLOR OUT OF SPACE
* Lost scene
* Science and Horror Featurette
* Effects and Concepts Featurette

The film is available now, so make a note and check it out!

Book Review – Dawn of the Dead by George A. Romero and Susanna Sparrow

Dawn of the Dead
by George A. Romero & Susanna Sparrow
Courtesy of Gallery Books
Release Date: May 26, 2015

dawn of the dead

When it comes to movie adaptions of books, the literary version usually trumps the screen version every time. This is often attributed to the fact a movie can only present so much in an allotted timeframe, whereas a book can present just about anything it wants. I often read the book prior to seeing the movie because this allows me to create my own images of each character, instead of picturing the actor/actress in each scene. DAWN OF THE DEAD is a unique scenario for me because I didn’t even realize a book version existed. Therefore, when I read it, I couldn’t help but picture the cast of the film in my head as each scene played out. But even so, the book is just as entertaining as the film, and I suggest fans of Romero’s celluloid classic snatch up a copy of this one as soon as possible.

If you are not familiar with DAWN OF THE DEAD, here is the plot synopsis courtesy of Gallery Books:

The novel of the classic horror film, with an introduction by Simon Pegg!

WHEN THERE IS NO MORE ROOM IN HELL, THE DEAD WILL WALK THE EARTH
George A. Romero terrified a generation with his iconic horror film and with this cult-classic novel. Immerse yourself in this unparalleled vision from the revered master of the zombie apocalypse…and be terrified all over again.

Zombies have overpowered the living and ravaged the world. Society has collapsed as humans race to save themselves. No one knows how far the creatures have spread, or how to stop them. In downtown Philadelphia, four people escape the chaos and find shelter in a vacated shopping mall. But as their greed spirals and the undead close in, their haven for waiting out the end of the world becomes the last battleground for survival. And there is nowhere left to hide…

I love how Simon Pegg was picked to write the introduction. SEAN OF THE DEAD is a hilarious horror-comedy, but it’s also a silent homage to the terrifying world Romero created. As such, Pegg makes the perfect person to set the foundation of the book.

DAWN OF THE DEAD is written well and flows nicely, just like its screen companion. The prose is not overdrawn or lengthy, but reads quickly instead, allowing the action and the intensity to mesh into the story. I like this attribute, as it makes the book a quick read and an adrenaline-fueled trip into terror.

The story is very much like the film, however we get much more backstory. I found some reviews from readers who did not like this aspect, saying it bogged the story down; I disagree. I think the deeper exposition gives us a broader picture of the characters as well as the plot. This grants a more fulfilling experience with the story.

DAWN OF THE DEAD is a definite literary win for me. I recommend it to fans of the film and anyone looking for an introduction into Romero’s dark world. The book is available now in a variety of formats, so give it a look.

Movie Review – Kung Fu Killer (2015)

Kung Fu Killer
Directed by Teddy Chan
Courtesy of Well Go USA
Release Date: July 21, 2015

kung fu

Don’t let the corny title of KUNG FU KILLER fool you; it is actually a top notch martial arts action-thriller. I admit the title almost dissuaded me from watching the film, however I’m glad I didn’t let it. With a riveting storyline, massive levels of intensity, and some brutal fight scenes, this is one film I’m definitely glad to add to my collection. If you are a fan of high adrenaline action, this film is for you!

If you are not familiar with KUNG FU KILLER, here is the plot synopsis courtesy of Well Go USA:

A vicious killer stalks the streets of Hong Kong, methodically executing top martial arts competitors. Xia (Donnie Yen), a convicted killer and kung fu expert, offers to help police find the killer and put him behind bars in return for his own freedom. The killer eludes them again and again, taunting the cops – and Xia, his new target – to discover his next moves. Xia refuses to play his lethal game…until the killer threatens the woman he loves most.

Donnie Yen just keeps getting better and better. I am continuously impressed with his work. If he can keep this type of momentum going, he will be a household name, much like Bruce Lee.

KUNG FU KILLER is shot well and looks great from a production standpoint. But the story itself is what sells this film. It pretty much grabs you from the start, and it never lets go. I found myself enjoying it just as much as the action sequences.

The acting is very good, with the afore mentioned Donnie Yen headlining a great cast. Yen delivers his drama just as powerfully as he doles out punches. Joining Yen this time is Baoqiang Wang, who seems to quickly be making a name for himself in martial arts flick circles. Wang does a great job portraying a cripple who has overcome his disability with deadly fighting skills. I hope to see more of him in the future.

The fight scenes in KUNG FU KILLER are pure joy, and I have to admit they are some of the best I have seen this year. They seem to be more brutally realistic than some, filled with cracking bones and smashed skulls. I think this realism makes the intensity higher, which in turn makes for a more immersive film experience.

KUNG FU KILLER is a major win for me, and I recommend it to anyone looking for a thriller with some excellent action. The film is available now in a variety of formats, so check it out.

Documentary Review – Lost Soul: The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley’s ISLAND OF DR. MOREAU (2015)

Lost Soul: The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley’s ISLAND OF DR. MOREAU
Directed by David Gregory

Release Date: July 28, 2015

lost soul

Several years ago, a friend of mine told me I needed to sit down and watch John Frankenheimer’s THE ISLAND OF DR. MOREAU. When I asked why, he just smiled and said, “You’ll see why after you watch it…it’s bizarre.” His enigmatic answer was enough to prompt me to watch the film, so I did. He was certainly right; the film is a very strange take on H.G. Wells’ book…but it’s also way out in left field on certain things. I always found the film odd, and now, thanks to LOST SOUL: THE DOOMED JOURNEY OF RICHARD STANLEY’S ISLAND OF DR. MOREAU, I think I understand why. This amazing documentary sheds light on one of the weirdest filmmaking experiences ever recorded in history.

If you are not familiar with LOST SOUL: THE DOOMED JOURNEY OF RICHARD STANLEY’S ISLAND OF DR. MOREAU, here is the plot synopsis courtesy of Severin Films and CAV Distribution:

In 1995, visionary writer/director Richard Stanley (HARDWARE, DUST DEVIL) got the green light for his dream project: An epic adaptation of H.G. Wells’ ‘The Island Of Doctor Moreau’ starring Marlon Brando and Val Kilmer. But only days into production, an unprecedented storm of natural disasters, monstrous egos and disturbing imagery – along with chaos, insanity and witchcraft – would trigger perhaps the most infamous behind-the-scenes catastrophe in modern movie history. Now director/producer David Gregory (THE THEATRE BIZARRE, PLAGUE TOWN) reveals the untold story behind one of the all-time greatest cinematic train wrecks (Variety) in this wonderfully weird and gripping (Entertainment Weekly) documentary featuring never-before-seen footage, startling new interviews with actors Fairuza Balk and Rob Morrow, studio executives, crew members and – for the first time ever – the notoriously reclusive Stanley himself, plus nearly 2 hours of exclusive Bonus Features.

I always wondered what happened to Richard Stanley. After directing two cult-favorite films (HARDWARE and DUST DEVIL), he dropped off the planet for a long time. I didn’t hear anything about him for years, until back in 2012, when he directed a short in THE THEATRE BIZARRE horror anthology. I hope the release of this documentary will help usher in his reemergence into the realm of filmmaking.

LOST SOUL: THE DOOMED JOURNEY OF RICHARD STANLEY’S ISLAND OF DR. MOREAU is shot like most documentaries and looks good onscreen. The behind-the-scenes story is exhaustively fleshed out, and the result is a top-notch documentary that is entertaining and engrossing.

The film contains a slew of famous faces, including Fairuza Balk, Rob Morrow, Robert Shaye, and even Richard Stanley himself. I wish the production team had gotten Val Kilmer for an interview, however I can understand why Kilmer probably did not want to be on camera; not a single cast or crew member had anything positive to say about him.

This fascinating glimpse into the nightmarish film experience behind THE ISLAND OF DR. MOREAU is something you simply must see to believe. Richard Stanley was fired after four days of filming. Afterwards, more chaos ensued: John Frankenheimer was called in to finish the film and decided to rewrite the script on the fly; meanwhile, Marlon Brando started acting crazy, and Val Kilmer’s diva-like antics were nothing short of jaw-dropping. The events prior to and during the film shoot were a perfect storm for New Line Cinema, and it’s a wonder the company didn’t go bankrupt because of it.

LOST SOUL: THE DOOMED JOURNEY OF RICHARD STANLEY’S ISLAND OF DR. MOREAU is a huge win for me, and I recommend checking it out as soon as possible. If you’ve never seen the Frankenheimer/Stanley film, give it a look and then watch the documentary. But if you are already familiar with it, this film will answer many of the questions you’ve harbored over the years. LOST SOUL hits store shelves next week, so make a note.

Blu-ray Movie Review – The Happiness of the Katakuris (2001)

The Happiness of the Katakuris
Directed by Takashi Miike
Courtesy of Arrow Video & MVD
Release Date: June 16, 2015

the happiness

Director Takashi Miike is a man of great talent and diverse vision. This is evidenced by his extensive filmography. Whereas many of his titles contain dark and gory elements, a few stand out as unique entries into his portfolio because they are not so. THE HAPPINESS OF THE KATAKURIS is one of these select few. And while it might not have many of Miike’s signature staples, fans of his work will quickly recognize his influences onscreen nonetheless. The film is chocked full of bizarre characters, crazy situations, and a lot of dark humor. If you’re not a fan of Miike already, chances are you will be after this!

If you are not familiar with THE HAPPINESS OF THE KATAKURIS, here is the plot synopsis courtesy of Arrow Video:

From Takashi Miike, the prolific director of such shocking hits including Audition and Ichi the Killer comes “The Sound of Music meets Dawn of the Dead”! The Katakuris are a family trying to run a peaceful country inn but with a lack of guests there is much excitement for their first visitor, until they wind up dead! As each guest in turn dies in strange circumstances the family agree to hide the bodies but will the coverups come back to haunt them… In The Happiness of the Katakuris, scenes of grotesque stop motion animation, surreal musical numbers and zombies combine to make one of the finest horror-comedies ever made.

If a film’s tagline describes it as “THE SOUND OF MUSIC meets DAWN OF THE DEAD”, how can anybody in their right mind not want to see it? I mean, wow…hooks just don’t get much better than that! This film basically had me at hello.

THE HAPPINESS OF THE KATAKURIS is a bizarre trek into absurdity, and it is excellent in every aspect. The film is shot well and looks great onscreen, and it even features some nice stop-motion animation at the beginning. Granted, the opening sequences don’t appear to have much to do with the rest of the film, but they are fun to watch nonetheless.

The acting is over-the-top and hammed up nicely, which adds to the charm of this horror-comedy. Usually, I would comment on this in a negative light, but this aspect really seems to work for this film. Given the nature of the subject matter, the crazy characters accent the surrealistic landscape of the film.

And ‘surreal’ is a perfect word to describe THE HAPPINESS OF THE KATAKURIS. Filled with obscure imagery, kooky scenarios, and even a barrage of nonsensical musical numbers, this is one film you have to see to believe. This Arrow Video Blu-ray release looks amazing in HD and comes with a slew of Special Features that include:

* New High Definition digital film transfer
* Presented in High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) and Standard Definition DVD
* Original uncompressed Stereo PCM audio
* Audio commentary by director Takashi Miike
* The Making of the Katakuris – An original documentary from the film’s production featuring interviews and behind-the-scenes footage with the cast and crew
* Interviews with the Katakuris cast members Kenji Sawada, Keiko Matsuzaka, Kiyoshiro Imawano, Shinji Takeda, Naomi Nishida, Tetsuro Tanba and Miike
* Animating the Katakuris – A look at the creation of the film’s stop motion effects with animation director Hideki Kimura and Miike
* Trailer and TV Spots
* Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by the Twins of Evil
* Booklet featuring new writing on the film by author Johnny Mains and a re-printed interview with Miike conducted by Sean Axmaker, illustrated with original stills

I highly recommend THE HAPPINESS OF THE KATAKURIS, and I suggest you check it out today.

Movie Review – Kill Me Three Times (2015)

Kill Me Three Times
Directed by Kriv Stenders
Courtesy of Magnet Releasing
Release Date: July 7, 2015

kill me three times

If a movie boasts Simon Pegg as one of its cast, you can bet I’m going to find a way to see it. I’ve been a huge fan of his work since 2004, when I first saw SHAUN OF THE DEAD. When I first heard about KILL ME THREE TIMES, I was surprised to discover he was attached; I never considered him assassin material, but I figured he was certainly up to it. Low and behold, the film blew me away. I will even go so far as to say it is a definite Must See for everybody reading this review, regardless of whether you are a genre fan or not. KILL ME THREE TIMES is an excellent film, and it is one of the best I’ve seen so far this year.

If you are not familiar with KILL ME THREE TIMES, here is the plot synopsis courtesy of Magnet Releasing:

KILL ME THREE TIMES is a darkly comedic thriller from rising star director Kriv Stenders (Red Dog). Simon Pegg plays the cunning assassin, Charlie Wolfe, who discovers he isn’t the only person trying to kill the temptress of a sun-drenched surfing town (Alice Braga). Charlie quickly finds himself at the center of three tales of murder, mayhem, blackmail and revenge.

KILL ME THREE TIMES is one of those movies that almost defies description. It is definitely a comedy-thriller, but it also runs in the vein of Quentin Tarantino. I love the diversity in the film, as it has you laughing one minute and cringing the next.

KILL ME THREE TIMES is shot very well and look great onscreen. Director Kriv Stenders has a great eye for film, and this is evidenced by the unique look the cinematography brings about during the story.

The acting is excellent, with Pegg sharing screentime with several great names. These include Alice Braga, Teresa Palmer, Luke Hemsworth, and Bryan Brown. The entire cast does a phenomenal job together, and there’s a lot of chemistry between everyone involved.

The special effects in KILL ME THREE TIMES are quite good as well. Surprisingly, there’s some nice gore, and it looks great onscreen. I particularly like the police offer who takes a bullet in the throat; this looks gruesomely realistic, and it almost makes you cringe when you see it.

The story is the big winner for the film, though. It’s got more betrayals and backstabbing than a group of Washington D.C. politicians. And it’s filled with twists and turns, like a multi-layered mystery novel. With that being said, the storyline is not difficult to follow at all. If anything, it’s pretty simple in nature.

KILL ME THREE TIMES is a major win for me, and I highly recommend it. Stenders is a name to watch out for in Hollywood; if he continues to make movies of this caliber, his future will be bright for sure. This film is available now in a variety of formats.
