Like his peer Quentin Tarantino, writer/director Michael Keating is famous for making films that are all about borrowing from the greats to create something truly unique. Carnage Park is definitely a good example of his fast-paced filmmaking style in action, but how does it stack up to his other work, and is it actually worth a spot on your running list of must-see films?
Direction is just as important as story and even more important than acting. For this reason I probably have more favorite directors than I do actors or actresses. Takashi Miike is easily in my top five all time favorite directors. Before there was Imprint(Masters of Horror Season 1 Episode 13), there was Ichi the Killer andHappiness of the Katakuris. And before those two cinematic gems there was Audition; an absolute masterpiece of Japanese horror film making.
Taken from a novel written by Ryu Murakami, Audition starts by introducing us to a widower,... Read More
Breaking at the Edge is a 2013 horror film that’s actually more creepy than scary. Two brothers kill their half sister in order to inherit their wealthy estranged father’s estate. And when the younger brother’s pregnant wife finds out, they plot to kill her too.
2 out of 10 stars. What I didn’t like was the truly bad acting by the Brazilian actress and the “ghost” of Sara Randolph. We’ve come a lot further than this. The rest of the cast wasn’t much better. Bad casting can really ruin a film.
