Let’s Make A Movie…

Lights, camera, action!!
Here’s information for the curious fraction:

I love filmmaking; reeling your vision to make a statement.
Here’s how to make a movie from concept to last payment.

It costs a few coins and you’ll need more workers than the Red Cross.
However the finished and telling product is always well worth the cost.

You can make whatever you want, a movie, a winning move and/or a website.
Fear not of the darkness — knowledge will bring all things to light.

SKILLS are real and if you are in need of assistance or service — then hire.
Build trumply like old man Donald without all the foreclosures and “FIRED’s!”

Success is real and the successful rarely say “SCREW ME!”
Questionable morals get the loudest orals — so I’m just ‘gone DO ME.

Sleeping on your reel dreams will not ever serve you well,
so Let’s Make A Movie about Society: Dodging The Gates of Hell.

Let’s tell a tale about people running from “the word sheep,”
right into a trap set for the flock of “Me, myself, and the green.”

What a sheep call!
Let’s reflect their ‘prideful run with no stall.’

We’ll show them in droves packing out the joint…
thriving and rallying over empty talking points.

Let’s pull the camera out to show a bigger picture,
of a society casting all others as minorities or niggers.

In the flockers attempts to better society
they alienate and divide – inciting violence and rioting.

I like action! I’m an action junky – it moves me.
But after looking over my notes, this sounds like a horror movie:

The flockers don’t realize they are the very sheep that they are condemning…
Let’s put the script through thousands of re-writes for a more diverse hemming.

Now mind you, this is an off-the-cuff idea, I don’t love it nor am I married to it.
Whatever your creative dreams are for you, I suggest you get real and DO IT.

Good morning dear family, I woke up with the reel on my mind,
I’m Qui
Happy to kick it with thee. You are the realist find.

Today I’ll be on my #ReelGrind, what will you be doing?
If you get a minute, put your two cents in it – THINK TANK, Let’s Make a Movie.

Well, the real name of the movie is EVIL DEAD.  It’s a remake of Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead (1981). The original film was a horror/comedy starring Bruce Campbell (BURN NOTICE), however the remake is straight horror. Blood and guts are a staple here and if you like horror movies – you’re in for a fright. On the other hand, if you’re looking to be scared and tickled at the same time, much like Sam Raimi gave it to us in his 1981 creation – get over the laughter. It’s not coming. Fede Alvarez is no comic and he had full producing support of Sam R. and Bruce Campbell in crafting the remake.

I’m a fan of the original film and I like a good horror story as well as the next, but this film didn’t need the title EVIL DEAD, it could have easily been titled CABIN HELL and have served it’s full purpose. Going into this film I anticipated that it would be comparable to the 1981 classic film by design. However, if you remove the whole “name sake” element – the film is bloody good.

The young SUBURGATORY star Jane Levy who played Mia (an avid drug user) – was awesome. The script is crazy. So many things happened all at once during Mia’s family and friends drug intervention weekend. Mia’s trying to kick her cocaine habit (again) and this time her brother David shows up to help, along with 3 of their closest friends.

SPOILER ALERT: The black cast member dies first. I just wanted to get that out and onto the table. She’s hot. Her name is Jessica Lucas but her mocha, intellectual frame doesn’t make it past ACT 2. Her characters caring nature took her down. The two white friends who were lodging in the cabin with the siblings were also taken down in slow-but-horrific fashion with the help of a hypodermic needle to the eye and an auto carving knife.

It was really good stuff, but if you’re a fan of the 1981 EVIL DEAD, this film does not pick up where Sam Raimi left off – at all. The cabin remained the same but there was absolutely nothing in there to laugh about.


So was it a scary film? Of course it was.
But when siblings reunite – I’m expecting hugs.

Instead what I got was a lot of blood.
Limbs being severed and spilling guts.

I’m quite satisfied with the directors horrific edge,
but it hardly resembled the old flick: EVIL DEAD.

It is indeed a good horror story that Fede Alvarez has set out to tell,
It’s legs are strong & could stand alone – with a title like CABIN HELL.

It’s a 91-minute spell and you’ll find no time for bore.
EVIL DEAD will fill your head with anxiety, guts and gore.

I ate way to much popcorn, invoked by the movie lobby smell.
I’m Qui
Happy Friday to thee – EVIL DEAD could easily be titled CABIN HELL.
