        Some time in the future man has discovered how to control the weather (since apparently in that universe there has never been dozens of movies made showing just how bad an idea this can be). And sure enough, it's all gone to hell, and now Earth is stuck in a permanent ice age, with survivors living in small colonies. When our heroes receive a distress call from a nearby colony that then goes silent, and expedition is sent out, which causes an avalanche of events that spiral out of control (a description about as cliché as this film).

The Buzz:

     So I evidently have a burning desire to see every found footage style film available on Netflix, and this one was a recent update to the site.  The main difference with this particular film is that I actually remember hearing about it and seeing commercials; most of these types of movies do not get press.  This film hypothesizes that Apollo 17 was not the last trip we took to the moon, that there was one in secret that ended poorly to say the least.  To give an idea of what to expect the tag line is, “There’s a reason we didn’t go back”, and the reason evidently was because 90 minutes feels like an eternity there.  Without further delay I present to you my latest in my increasing obsession, maybe fetish with found footage, enjoy and remember not to go to the moon.

        An English sound engineer (in what I believe to be the 70's?) is brought in to work on an Italian horror film. But the entire project is surrounded by dysfunction, and soon the lines between fiction and reality become blurred.

     Have you ever read one of those synopses on Netflix that sounded so freaking amazing and wonderful that you had to see it that instant?  I was recently tricked into this exact situation by the malevolent gods that control that great movie catalog in the sky.   The film was based on an entire town of people just standing up one day and walking into the woods in 1940.  The town numbered slightly over 500 and after a few days law enforcement went down the path and found over 300 people either frozen or horribly mutilated.  Everything was swept under the rug until the Freedom of Information Act allowed some documentarians to get access to the files and this is their journey.  Sounds like an interesting premise right?  Unfortunately that is on the title card that begins the film; below I will discuss what followed.

The Buzz:

     Growing up on the Eastern Shore of Maryland was a unique experience for a young kid; it was boring, but at least there was nothing to do.  This part of Maryland is very different than what most people picture of the state; it is mainly farmland and wetlands.  One of the biggest threats to the way of life there is ecological, because the economy thrives on healthy water.  This film tackles this huge fear in a very plausible and quasi-scientific way.  This is another found footage style film, which seems to be a kick that I am on.  It’s horror in some ways, but it doesn’t really fit any genre 100%.  If you have an hour and a half to kill and want a good way to make the clock speed on, give this film a shot.

     Shock horror pretty much died in the 80’s, or I should say shock horror of any decent quality at least.  One of the most shocking and disturbing films from that genre is one of Tom Savini’s  greatest works, a little film starring Joe Spinelli called Maniac.  I only discovered recently that one of the most detested films of all time was remade in 2012; basically the same movie with new faces.  Having seen the original and felt dirty for years after doing so, I made the brilliant decision that I gotta watch this one too.  I am glad I did!  I was treated to a well-acted piece of modern shock horror that all fans should see.

The Buzz:

     This is another found footage film from The Vicious Brothers, and set ten years after the original film.  This is a little different of a take on the ghost horror genre because in this case the film is literally going all Meta and basing itself on another found footage film.  There are certainly more scares in this installment as they try to address the main issue in the series, but the story is still pretty solid.  The movie even starts with vlogs reviewing the first film on YouTube and one of the reviewers turns out to be the main character.  If you are a fan of the found footage genre you should definitely give this film a shot like I did, you won’t regret it.

     You know all those crappy haunting shows?  What if they were in fact real and came across a true haunted place?  This is the premise of Grave Encounters.  The film is introduced as a found footage compilation by the producer who says it’s from a TV show of the same name.  What we get is a behind the scenes filming of the show as well as a partially finished episode.  When things start to go to hell, like they do, we get to see the various fates of the characters from their point of view.  If you can deal with a “shaky-cam” film, this has a lot to offer and is quite well crafted.

About Us

Tanked Matinee is the place to go for good drinking movies. What do we mean by that? Simply speaking, we evaluate and recommend entertainment media based on how much fun it is to watch with friends on the sofa and a cold beer in hand.

Everyone knows "The Godfather" is a great movie, but is it as great to drink with as "Roadhouse?" We can appreciate "Citizen Kane" as a masterpiece of cinema, but is it as good a centerpiece for your party as "Santa Clause Conquers the Martians?"

Tanked Matinee appreciates film as art, but when you're kicking back on Friday night with a tall Rum & Coke, you're not looking for art, man, you want to be entertained. We're here to recommend the best movies for your night in, whether it's a big party, small get-together, or just a quiet night alone with a bottle of wine or three.
