Staring: Julie Dickson, Reece Manning & Lucas Scheffel
Directed by: Lucas Scheffel
Dead Therapy is a short film that draws us into a dramatic apocalyptic world that slowly builds up to Paul and Amanda's decision to either fight for life or stay hiding during a toxic event that could be exactly as horrifyingly as they think they remember or worse during their time stuck in an abandoned basement.
Reece Manning drives the story towards is climatic ending while Julie Dickson's performance is full of perfection and dramatic pause that draws us into an amazingly, beautiful and dramatically acted past history, at the same time as building towards the traumatic future they may have to live with in this gorgeously edited, acted, lighted and directed short film.
I feel 8/10 stories.

I adored this short movie so much that I waited a few days and watched it again to let its power, strength and beauty wash over me fully before I set type to screen, Rose White is about two sisters whom want to protect each other from everything harmful in life.
Erin Breen's strength and beauty flowed through her to portray the courageous Rosalyn so effortlessly that I sometimes thought I was watching a full feature film veteran of many years her age, I also felt so moved by Deneen Melody's performance of the quiet yet so dramatic Lily that I began to forget there was other actors in Rose White at all, she said so little vocally but showed expressions that held millions of words with massive dramatic power, I could go on and on about all the amazing actors and actresses in this movie, especially the very talented Ann Marie Boska's portrayal of young Rosalyn, but i don't want to spoil the movie's charm.
I don't think anyone who watches the short movie Rose White will be able to say anything derogative, from the amazing music and sound effects, to the sublime lighting and camera work, Rose White deserves awards for everyone who was involved from the gaffer to the actors.
I smell 9/10 roses.

This short trip into the good and the bad moments between who we are and the contacts we let ourselves experience, is expertly punctuated by the dramatic music of Tom Burns and effects by Daniel J Mazikowski then brought beautifully home by Jeremiah Kipp’s amazing talent at directing the contact between people around him.
I feel 8/10 trips
Staring: Deneen Melody, Michael Partipilo

The portraying of a complex story is often hard to articulate over a full feature let alone a short film, not so for director Jeremiah Kipp whom took some of life’s most difficult and pleasurable moments, and placed them in a myriad of photos and dramatic scenes intermixed with amazing lighting and colour bringing the viewer into the depth of the film Crestfallen. With life pausing moments graphically shown by Arthur Cullipher and dramatically empathised by Harry Manfredini, this heartfelt piece of drama was completed by the haunting beauty of Deneen Melody.

Watching the loneliness and frustrations of life’s drool only being more complicated by our connection to others, to end in the dismay of solitude felt more surreal with the melancholy musical soundtrack. Amazing work everyone involved in the production of Drool.
I drool 6/10 slimes
Big Tits Zombie - Big Tits Dragon, Kyonyu Dragon or Zombie vs Stippers 5
Starring: Sola Aoi, Risa Kasumi, Mari Sakurai, Tamayo, lo Aikawa
Directed by: Takao Nakano
The story follows a group of asian girls whom have lost all form of income and become strippers to help out with the local economy, the man whom runs their club even says "I'm only doing it (running the strip club) because the tourism board asked me to" of course the five girls accidently find a cellar, which has a copy of the Book of Dead, that one of them can read with ease, from this point the movie is what you expected to see, the girls struggle to survive the zombies while one of them goes crazy with power, all while trying to keep their stripper outfits on.
Well what can one say about a movie with the title Big Tits Zombie, i sat down to watch it with good humour and that is what i received, a low budget zombie movie with some nice blood and jelly spattering scenes, including a great ping pong scene, some chainsaw hacking and sword splitting action, what i did not expect to see, was a scene that made me laugh the most, that I can only assume was only in the original Asian version of the movie, as no other reviews mention its mostly Asian appeal.
I quiet enjoyed the movie, its 73 mins during which i laughed and giggled out loud, while not being disgusted by the gore or language, i don't reconmend it for people who hate zombie or 1980's style titty flicks, for the rest of us though, get your eyes and ears onto this one soon.
I gives it 7/10 zombies
