review by
Mike Haberfelner

A handful of shorts from all over the spectrum, all with a (more or less obvious) 1980s vibe to them:
  • Swamp Buck: A son (Dominic Bowers) saves his father (Jake Jordan) who's attacked by a mutated swamp buck when they're out hunting by shooting the beast. Unfortunately they later make the mistake to eat the animal as well ...
  • Guerrilla: A virus outbreak leaves an immune young boy (Mars Mohamed) to fend for himself in a world that grows more and more hostile ...
  • Wallet: A woman (Maude Michaud) finds a wallet with plenty of cash - and decides to keep it, not anticipating the consequences ...
    Debbie D is also in this one.
  • Los Angeles Connection: Vanessa (Sheri Davis) is raped and killed by two thugs (Mike Ferguson, Eric Reingrover), not taking into account that her husband (Raymond Vinsik Williams) might want to take bloody revenge ...
  • Party Like It's 1984: All two bodyguards (Tom Jolliffe, Oliver Jolliffe) are tasked with is getting a musician (Sarah Dyas) to Wembley Arena for a show - but she's a bit of a problem child with a drug addiction, and eventually the three end up lost in the woods ...
  • Somnambulist: After months of experiments, three scientists have (Matt McLeod, Edward Hong, Shane Ryan) found a way to communicate with a comatose woman - but by doing so, they're opening a door to another world ...
  • Odyssey of the Disturbed: As this story about teen couples shows, true love will always find a way - but there's plenty of hatred along the roadside ...
  • Luna di Morte: A short meditation on murder-suicide, really ...
  • Tumor Hunter: A cancerous wheelchair-bound alcoholic that has somehow attracted the wrath of a street gang receives unexpected help by a leather-clad hero ...

As is the case with many themed anthologies with filmmakers from all over the board, this is a mixed bag of goodies - but that's not a bad thing at all, as it shows a wide range of approaches to the common theme, from the intentionally trashy to the artistic, the dead serious to the downright funny, the abstract to the in-your-face, and likewise the films vary wildly in look and feel. As a result it's of course only natural that not all the movies collected here will be exactly to your liking, as that's just the nature of a project like this, but at the same time the film has pretty much at least something to love for everybody. And on top of that, indie fans like myself will also marvel at the variety present in off-mainstream cinema!
