Revenge

19 years ago today I released this piece of garbage, B-Horror Gore movie, that is just plain terrible. I was still learning back then. I can barely watch beyond the first few minutes.

Released: February 19, 2000

Much like The Machine, Hell, and eventually City Violence, I don’t know what the hell I was thinking with this one. This isn’t as bad as the others I listed there. It all started on a separate 3DMM file. I worked on some super gory scenery that I wanted to put in a movie. I wanted to make the goriest movie I possibly could do. I was very influenced by other 3dmm movies I watched that had the extreme gore going on. That was my goal for this movie – to be the goriest. The final result – not the goriest, but it definitely has some gnarly-ness. Mostly the violence in this movie was aftermath brutality, so it works on some levels.
Because I was very focused on the shock of the gory deaths, I didn’t pay…

Simulated Evil

16 years ago?? You gotta be shitting me. I remember when Andrew and I released this now classic 3DMM movie of ours that was supposed to be our big comeback in the 3DMM community. People still hated us anyway, but it didn’t matter. I think movies about clones were a popular subject back then, so it worked for us as a sci-fi/horror mixed with our dark comedy style. Enjoy!

Andrew and I really needed a comeback. It was a new year and we hadn’t done anything in awhile. I think after watching some movies such as Multiplicity and The Sixth Day, we thought it’d be cool to make a movie about an evil clone.
The plot is about a kid named Andrew (of course) who gets suspended from school, goes to therapy, and returns to school. Upon his return to school, things aren’t much different in the way he is treated by other students. Suddenly he is approached by a group of strange men that ask him to be a part of a secret cloning program. Andrew agrees, goes to a special hospital…

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.

genuardismassacre2

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…

Apocalypse Mountain

19 years ago today, my cousin and 3DMM co-director Andrew Murphy released Apocalypse Mountain. This movie was important because it was the first movie from our world (in this case Andrew’s solo direction) of 3DMM movies to ever make “Movie of the Week” at 3DMM.com That was big.

apocalypsemountain

While I was working on the Thorn movies, I suggested to Andrew that he should try a horror movie or something dark and strange. So he made this movie about the Yeti of the Himalayas. I think the idea spawned from watching an IMAX documentary movie about Mount Everest, and reading a lot of books about Bigfoot and the Abominable Snowman. Also, I think that episode of The Simpsons about Homer climbing a mountain was another reason.
The opening credit scene is amazing with “A Warm Place” by Nine Inch Nails playing with the red sky and orange clouds floating by.
The Americans arrive in the Himalayas and just decide to climb the mountain for the hell of it. It’s silly because they should’ve just gone there to do that, instead of deciding while looking out…

thorn2

Right away I wanted to get into the sequel of Thorn. I had the comics already done, so I knew what I wanted to do for this one. I do start to further my exploration of the handmade scenes, but still to most people watching, it is all very plain and not super-creative. At least I tried.
This sequel in particular is a little quiet and has a longer buildup until we get to the one-by-one murders. The school rebuilds after the destruction of the first one. It starts off with a funny baseball game directly stolen from Sleepaway Camp. Then it continues as a new kid enters the school that is just the dude from the first one who is the killer. We already know he’s the killer, and one by one they…
