Gargle Man

19 years ago today, with the excellent voice work of Andrew Murphy and darkness in direction, we both put out Gargle Man. I still get a kick out of it with the gargling voice. Hard to believe it’s been almost 20 years. Enjoy.

gargleman

Andrew and I decided to take a small break from our main solo films, and decided to make the Gargle Man movie. Besides Chris Gleason, he was a definite trademark character of our movies. So it had to be done. This had previously been made before the computer crash of ’99. This is simply a remake of that same film, sadly with very little use of handmade scenes. It was definitely made really fast and you can tell.
The story is about John Smith, one of the popular kids at school that doesn’t make the football team. He ignores his girlfriend who later cheats on him. He gets kicked out of the house, and then a bunch of thugs he owes money to slash his throat open…

Genuardi’s Massacre

13 years ago marks the release of one of my last 3DMM movies, a horror slasher in a grocery store written by Andrew Murphy. I had a fun time making this. I was at my 3dmm best, and it is a sure classic. Enjoy.

Andrew and I had been talking about this movie for a while, as a joke at first. Andrew was working at a grocery store, and thought it’d be hilarious to have a slasher movie at a grocery store. I haven’t made a slasher in awhile, so I felt the need to go back to my bread and butter. Andrew and I wrote the script together, but he would have no part in directing this. I was in the middle of my 2nd year at college and was still making 3DMM movies. I was 20 years old and did not care. I was still having fun, while everyone else seemed to be fading away from it.
The plot was simple. A psycho killer named Eddie “Machete” Jones…

Marijuana

18 Years Ago Today Andrew Murphy released this short movie that was supposed to be part our Short Movie Collection… It’s not my favorite but its still funny for all the wrong reasons.

If you wanna die, you can just come to me! If you wanna die, you can just come to me!

Around this time, short movies were the big thing, as were short movie collections. So Andrew decided to make a short movie compilation, starting with this one. He also had one for his take on BR’s Death, which was hilarious. But right as that happened all his short movies were erased because his computer crashed. All that survived was this short film.
Much like Fast Food Massacre, Andrew came up with another short movie where he kills a chick at the mall that offers him marijuana. This is partly based on truth because one time this girl came up to us at the mall, and asked us if we smoked weed. Andrew thought that stuff killed you, so in this movie he goes “Ya know, if you…

Necro Night

14 years ago today I released a zombie horror movie with my 3DMM friend/co-director Jeremy Dick . It’s one of my favorite horrors that I made. Jeremy and I are an amazing collaboration. So wish we could’ve done more 3DMM movies together. But anyway, without further ado I give you…

Nick Crushem: Zombie Hunter Nick Crushem: Zombie Hunter

After Jake had been released, I had started going to community college not long after. Andrew and I worked on finishing Man on the Edge, while Jeremy and I came up with a new movie. We wanted to enter the Halloween 3DMM movie contest. I brought forth to Jeremy my old movie from 1999 called The Offspring. Obviously he couldn’t see it because of the computer crash, but I told him the story, and wrote out a new movie.
With Jeremy Dick’s help, the movie worked and was re-named Necro Night. It would be a zombie movie, which was something I definitely needed to make before my 3DMM days came to an end.
The plot is about 2 dumb kids that resurrect…

Throes of Rejection

18 Years Ago today I made this short movie Throes of Rejection, named after the Pantera classic. Its very disturbing and wrong as usual, which is probably why I enjoy it so much. It made 3dmm.co.uk movie of the week, too!

“Isn’t she lucky?”

It was a new year, and I was in high school, so right away I wanted to make a short movie that was very simple – dude gets rejected at the school dance by a female he likes, and then goes postal. Rejection seemed to be a fitting theme in me and Andrew’s movies in 2001. I couldn’t do the voices at the time I made this because I had acid reflux, and lost my voice. So instead, I got Andrew to do the voices for me.
It is a short movie in the same vein as Fast Food Massacre, which is the best approach. I also think it won Movie of the Week at 3dmm.co.uk, but sadly they had Andrew listed as the director. The soundtrack was perfect. Even with the…

Jason X (2002)

jason-x-movie-poster-2002-1020197432

The excitement at the time was unlike any other… the first Jason movie I would get to see in theaters! I remember it was early summer 2002, just about to get out of 10th grade. I remember first hearing about it cuz it was announced on the internet about 2 years before. It took me by surprise, because I thought Freddy vs Jason would be the next one released. It didn’t matter though. Jason in space? Shiiit, I GOTTA see this!
JasonX2
The movie previews alone, the hot babes with futuristic guns, and this goofy guy saying “It’s ok guys! He just wanted his machete back!”, I just knew I was going to love the shit out of this movie.

Right away, the story starts in a not-so-distant future where Jason is older and finally caught by the government. The lovely Lexa Doig plays Rowan, in charge of keeping Jason frozen. As we all know Jason is an odd work of science, he’s a zombie in many ways, yes, and his cells regenerating after being “killed” multiple times “cries out for more research”.  Master director David Cronenberg makes a cameo appearance as a mad doctor that wants to keep Jason unfrozen. He comes to the Cryo-facility with a group of soldiers and bam! Right away, Jason is fucking everyone up.  Unfortunately, pretty Rowan is left all by herself with Jason (after being stabbed by a machete) and they freeze together.

Something like 445 years later, a group of people open the abandoned Cryo-lab and we see they are all teenagers on a space field trip to study Earth. Hmm…

Jason and Rowan are taken aboard the spacecraft. We are introduced to the crew of young students, the soldiers on board, and the main crew. One of the guys put together an Android named KM, who’s also a hot babe. The pilot already is perving out at the thought of Rowan. It’s definitely still looking like a Jason movie, even at this part!

Rowan is thawed out, and we learn a few things from the professor. There’s an Earth 2 now, Earth is practically unlivable from all the pollution, aaaand Jason is getting thawed out too!  He’s worth lots of money, so the teacher doesn’t want him killed, but wants him contained. Right away the horny teen scientists wake Jason right up.
There are some brutal deaths including a liquid nitrogen frozen face getting smashed. Beautiful, just beautiful.

The Professor is a total idiot while everyone is panicking. He gets the military crew headed by Brodski, whos a total badass, ready to take Jason down. One by one, all killed. I love it. Just like old times! Brodski actually does survive and comes back later.
The pilot eventually gets it, and they’re all pretty much fucked. One disaster after another. I won’t get spoil it too hard for you, but eventually this all leads up to Jason getting fucked up by KM.

In turn, the re-animation machine is shot to shit, and with Jason right by it, it re-animates him!  He gets an upgrade – JASON 2.0 – like a Terminator times a million. There’s a very funny scene where they make a digital distraction of Camp Crystal Lake circa 1980 and these hot young babes say how much they love pre-marital sex.  Sleeping bag deaths are too funny.
jason-x1
By the end, Jason falls through the atmosphere of Earth 2 and lands in a similar looking campground and lake. “Let’s check it out.”  The Jason 2.0 hockey mask floats to the bottom… Leaves it very open for a sequel.

Why did I like this movie so much? Well it was 100% a fun time almost instantly from the beginning all the way up till the end.  There are great kill scenes and quite a body count. There hot chicks in scantily-clad outfits even in the future. I love it.
I’ve heard so much bitching and complaining about this movie for how “bad” it is. I don’t see it. I’m too entertained by it. It was worth the wait. Shit, even Kane Hodder is Jason in it like old times!

jasonx1
So many cliche funny moments, like Jason waking up because people are getting laid and that guy laughing cuz Jason just wanted his machete back. I’m sorry, but this was a great Jason movie. Met all my expectations.
My only complaint, an unrealistic future, but who cares! If this really is the last true  Friday the 13th movie, all I can say is it was a nice ending to it.

RANDOM THOUGHTS/OBSERVATIONS

Jason’s still dangerous even when he’s frozen. When frozen Jason falls over he cuts the kid arm off!

JasonX3
Shanessa and the Professor’s twisted sex scene! Too great.
“We got a real problem here. A real goat fuck!”  Funny line.
