Pets of the Week October 17, 2016

mitzibMitzi is an energetic girl who loves nothing more than to chase a ball, retrieve it, and carry it around for as long as she can. They’re her “friends.” She seems a little shy at first, but once you throw a ball or toy for her to chase, you’ve just become her very best friend. This syrupy sweet, 2-year-old is visually striking with her tricolored markings of tan, white and a smidgen of black accent all topped off with the cutest ears ever. Meet Mitzi and make her your one and only.

rhapsodyRhapsody is a 5 month old kitty ready for adventure and fun. She makes the most of each moment and delights in everything she does, whether it’s playing with a stuffed mouse, horsing around with her sister, purring loudly in your arms, or even sleeping. Her snow white chest and legs resemble an evening gown accessorized by elegant full-length gloves and accented with a shiny black dress coat. This beautiful kitty is delightful and will help you enjoy your life as much as she does hers.

Wyrmwood

wrymwood_brookeThe Zombie genre can feel played out. But Wyrmwood is a nice entry from Australia. Very Gorey with shades of Day of the Dead.

We start off with an action scene with 4 armored men retrieving a truck surrounded by a horde of zombies. We get some flashbacks from a few of them when the zombie outbreak started. One man was forced to kill his family as they turn. Not from being bitten though. From the air itself. His sister gets kidnapped by a pseudo-military outfit and experimented on.

He and his friends make their way to her last known location, not knowing she was taken.

Whatever is in the air reanimating people also does something to flammable liquids like gas that make them no longer flammable. I love their solution around this.

We slowly get to see the effects of the experiments which lead up to the finale of the movie.

Wyrmwood leaves itself open for a sequel, but doesn’t really need one.

Starring: Jay Gallagher, Bianca Bradey, Leon Burchill, Keith Agius, Berynn Schwerdt, Luke McKenzie, Cain Thompson, Catherine Terracini

Attack of the Morningside Monster

Starring: Nicholas Brendon, Tiffany Shepis, Catherine Taber, Robert Pralgo, Antonio Madison, Amber Chaney, Mike Stanley

Site: TheMorningsideMonster.com

I kind of enjoyed this low budget horror entry.

The movie starts out with someone in a dark robe killing someone. That body later turns up after some teenagers have a small get-together in the woods.

We are introduced to the Sheriff and deputes of Morningside. We get a glimpse into the community’s normal flow. From low-tier drug dealers to high school teachers.

As more people die a ritualistic death, the hunt is on for the killer.

You’re probably going to figure out who the killer is, but this was still a fun popcorn movie for October.

rocketHe may zoom across the yard to chase the ball, but you’ll find our Rocket zipping right back into your arms for big kisses and happy hugs. This friendly, year old Weimaraner and Lab mix is absolutely stunning with his shiny, pewter-colored coat and sculpted physique. Million dollar model looks with a down-to-earth, playful side, it’s impossible to look at him and not beam with awe. Visit this handsome guy and enjoy the fun.

Vamp

This is a childhood favorite vampire film for me. It is one of the three vampire films I watched over and over as a kid – including Near Dark and the Lost Boys.

I just picked up the Arrow entertainment blu-ray. It is a huge improvement over the earlier bare bones blu-ray. Other than one brief scene, the entire movie is remastered. It has nice special features, but is missing the commentary that was on the DVD release years back.

Vamp opens with a botched fraternity initiation for Keith and AJ. To get into the fraternity, they promise to procure the services of a stripper for a party later that night. They go to Duncan to barter for the use of one of his cars. The price? They have to pretend to be his friend for a week.

Keith and AJ

Along the way to the strip club, Keith, AJ & Duncan run afoul of an albino gang. After an … interesting … way of getting out of the situation, they manage to get to the club.

While Keith and Duncan are watching “ringside”, AJ is flying solo at the bar. After an odd performance by the owner, Katrina, AJ decides that is the act he wants for the fraternity. As he goes backstage to broker a deal, a waitress, Amaretto, talks up Keith. She mentions remembering him and them having an encounter in the past. All of which Keith does not remember.

Amaretto Keith Duncan

AJ has an intense encounter with Katrina that leads into the guys and Amaretto dodging vampires and the albino gang for the rest of the night.
