I’m pretty excited to finally be able to bring you this one. Of all the episodes we have in the can, this is my favorite, it’s also the first to feature one of the crazy-ass contraptions I built to deliver bloody effects. It’s also the first to feature one of the cool props built for us by Sean O’Connell. Based entirely on a vague note in the script, Sean went all Dollar Tree on us and came back with the only device that the script could have been describing. That thing belongs in a museum, I tell you. If it seems a little stupid that there’s a vampire at an afternoon BBQ, I apologize for that. I wasn’t crazy about it, either, but the final product is righteous! Hope you enjoy.
How To Survive The Strange, episode 1, the one where we demonstrate the effectiveness of killing zombies with a hammer was a pretty big success. It greatly exceeded my expectations and I’m really glad you all got such a big kick out of it. It’s been a kick-ass couple of weeks while John and I have been out and around promoting the show but it’s high-time we rolled out the next episode for your viewing pleasure. Here’s a short where a woman learns that her underperforming vacuum cleaner needs a romantic dinner and some flirty gestures to get back to perfect performance.
I also wear a really silly hat and give a toaster a sensual massage. All around, this is a weird one.
Ladies and gentlemen! The moment you have all been waiting for: This is the premier episode of How To Survive The Strange, the web series I’ve spent the last couple of months working weekends on with John Herman, seasoned veteran of web video. We’re kicking off the series with one of our favorites of the bunch, wherein I illustrate the effectiveness of driving the claw end of a hammer through a human skull to achieve maximum zombie death.
We had a blast making this one and we sure hope you get a kick out of it.
Before you go away, though, check this shit out! To promote the video and make this thing go viral, we’re offering you the unique opportunity to win copies of Locke & Key: Welcome To Lovecraft (the first in the series) signed by Joe Hill and Fight Club signed by Chuck Palahniuk. The contest involves watching the video, leaving us nice comments and whatnot. Get the details at the official How To Survive The Strange blog.
Cinema Suicide began as most movie blogs do. One man, his many opinions and an ability to write that is questionable at best. Since then, movie reviews made room for the latest news in horror, exploitation and cult movies. What you can expect to find is everything you could possibly want to know from DVD releases and reviews to trivia about movies you may or may not be familiar with. At the bottom line, Cinema Suicide aims to reach beyond the shallow interactions of your typical blog and create a community that can come together around a concept that we all have in common: A love of really crappy movies.
