VENDETTA (2015)

 
Title: Vendetta
Directors: Jen and Sylvia Soska
Writer: Justin Shady
Cast: Dean Cain, Paul "Big Show" White, Micheal Eklund, Benjamin Hollingsworth, Adrain Holmes, Matthew MacCaull
Year: 2015
Min: 90

Detective Mason (Dean Cain) has arrested crime boss Victor Abbott (Paul "Big Show" White), but when Abbott is released on a technicality he heads to Mason's house. There he beats Mason's pretty wife (Kyra Zagorsky) to death. Abbott soon ends up back in the slammer. Afterwards, Mason guns down Abbott's brother and crew in hopes of getting arrested and going to jail, himself. With them both being locked up at the same prison, Mason's plan for vengeance is set in motion. But, he learns that there is a criminal enterprise being run from the prison, itself, with someone being above Abbott, himself.

The fourth full length feature film from the Soska sisters continues to show that they can do wrong. Vendetta is a solid and entertaining revenge/ prison film. While, this is the first time they have moved away from the horror genre; they manage to keep their horror influences clearly on their sleeves.

While, the script by Justin Shady breaks no new ground and is fairly unoriginal, the movie is raised above being a throw away film, thanks to the talent behind and in front of the camera. The Soska's prove that they are very good at directing hard hitting (literally in many cases action). This is a movie where the red stuff flows freely and might just be their most brutal and gruesome movie, yet. And, unlike the ultra-violent Dead Hooker in a Trunk  (the movie that they made that comes closest to the gore quanta on this), this one is played straight up and serious. It moves at a breakneck pace, rarely stopping or slowing down. And, the aforementioned brutality includes stabbings, gory squibs, broken necks, bloody beat-downs, and lots more graphic and bloody mayhem all of which help it rank among the bloodiest movie of this kind, around.

The acting is surprisingly strong. And, while everyone involved is good, it's the two leads that really shine. Dean Cain is a legitimate badass. I am really not fan of Lois and Clark, but he leaves Superman far behind delivering something much closer to the Punisher. Those expecting a goody two shoes Cain should look elsewhere. Then, there is Paul White, better known as the Big Show in WWE (and the Giant before that in WCW), who simply kills it (pun intended). I did not at all expect him to be this damn good. He plays a truly evil and intimating villain. And, while his huge size certainly comes into this equation, it wouldn't mean shit unless he has the talent to back it up. And, thank God he does.

In all Vendetta is a kick ass, bad motherfucker of a movie. Thanks to the huge talent of everyone involved, what could have been pedestrian is raised far and above it's content. Action packed, tough as nails, and bloody as hell this is an action movie that will please those who like their action movies with a definite edge and far away removed from Hollywood's typically bloodless PG13 action tripe. Another notch in the Soska twins film making belt, this might be the best movie WWE Studios has yet to put out.

BurningAngel's Ronda ArouseMe Porn Parody is Available Now

One of the most hotly discussed and anticipated, if not THE most hotly discussed and anticipated, porn flick of the year is here! Read on:

From the press release:

LOS ANGELES, August 28, 2015 – The opening scene of BurningAngel's eagerly-awaited porn parody of UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey, Ronda Arouse Me: Grounded and Pounded, is now streaming online at BurningAngel.com.
The scorching boy/girl scene - the first of a four-part online series - depicts the fighter (Kleio Valentien) in a hot workout session with her trainer (Derrick Pierce) with winning results.

Adult superstar and BurningAngel founder Joanna Angel directed the highly-publicized ArouseMe, and Rousey herself publicly responded to the parody, noting that the sexy nickname wasn't new: "It's funny, I used to hear that in high school sometimes!"

"This movie has gotten more attention than anything we have ever done; I'm excited for the fans to finally get to watch it," said Angel, who will roll out Ronda Arouse Me's next three scenes in the coming weeks. "It's my own special way of giving props to the most powerful woman in the world."

In the film, Ronda ArouseMe (Valentien), the Olympic medalist in Kama Sutra and reigning UPC (Ultimate Porno Championship) Women's Bantamweight Champion, charts her difficult path to sexual glory, squaring off against her long-standing opponent and foe, Miesha Taint (Sammie Six). Arabelle Raphael and Moe the Monster Johnson round out the knockout cast; Angel and Small Hands contribute non-sex roles as commentators.

"Fans of official UFC announcer Bruce Buffer will appreciate my special appearance as 'Bruce Butthurt', complete with Buffer's famous catchphrases," said Angel. "Many of our viewers will find that funny."

Valentien, who pulled some serious punches and fought convincingly on set, is a big fan of Rousey's and hopes she is flattered by the parody and sexual empowerment message at the heart of ArouseMe.

"She's inspiring as a fighter and as a woman," said Valentien. "I hope Ronda gets a chance to see the movie; we respectfully made every effort to represent her as the strong, sexy woman that she is."

Horror Crush: Kate McNeil


Time for another horror crush, this time it's the beautiful Kate McNeil. Kate was born on Aug. 17, 1959 (making her 55) in Philly, PA. She began her career in the soap opera As the World Turns, but as always, I'm gonna talk about her horror movies.

She plays the lead role Katey in the cult favorite slasher flick The House on Sorority Row. I am gravely embarrassed in admitting that I have never seen that movie. I did however see, own, and love, the sort of remake Sorority Row. Anyway, the movie has a strong fan following and is critically praised. With all of this being said, one of these days I really do need to give it a look. What I can say, however, is that she looks truly stunning as a brunette.


But, it's her role in George Romero's somewhat underrated Monkey Shines, that inspired me to write this. This is the tale of a paraplegic who gets a helper monkey, only to discover that they have developed a weird and deadly psychic bond, thank to an experiment. McNeil plays Melanie who trains monkeys to help the handicapped. Our lead, crazy monkey, Ella, does not take kindly to Melania getting between her and our hero. McNeil is very likable in her role, and gives a great and highly believable performance. In fact, all of the acting is quite excellent in a movie that is really only marred by a lame, and forced shock scare that occurs towards the end and by being a bit overlong.

I've always had a soft spot for this one, and I recently upgraded my old MGM DVD to the Scream Factory blu-ray which is excellent, of course. Back, when I first saw it on VHS, as a kid, I developed quite the crush on the truly beautiful Ms. McNeil. Her blonder hair and blue eyes were very indicative of what was my ideal woman was back then. While, my versions of the ideal woman have changed over the course of my life, there is no denying that she is a complete stunner. And, still is, as is evident by her new interview on the blu-ray extra features.

One more thing, is worth mentioning, and that is her sex scene in the film. It's a very hot and, yet, genuinely tender and loving scene, that adds heart and feels like it wasn't just thrown in for the sake of showing her tits. That doesn't take away from the sexiness of it all, though. In fact, is is erotic enough that it made my list of the 10 Best Sex Scenes in Horror Movies, a couple of years ago. I also must admit, that as a kid this scene was a "personal" favorite of mine, if you know what I mean!

McNeil also appeared in the seventh season of The X-Files for the episode "Theef". I seen it, of course, but I haven't watched it since it first aired on TV. As such, I can't comment more on it. Regardless, McNeil is fully representative of the ideal American girl next door beauty, and one that fittingly gets added to this site's ever growing batch of horror crushes!



Hey, I would love to know, are you guys enjoying my horror crushes? Are you happy that this is becoming a more consistent feature on here? Leave me a reply, I would love to know your thoughts!
