Master Imaginationist and Instagram photographer Crystal Connor is the Chief Imagineer working for the Department of Sleep Prevention’s Nightmare Division. A Washington State native she loves anything to do with monsters, bad guys (as in evil-geniuses & super-villains.  Not ‘those’ kind her mother warned her about), rogue scientific experiments, jewelry, sky-high high-heeled shoes & unreasonably priced handbags.

When she’s not terrorizing her fans and racking up frequent flyers miles by gallivanting all over the country attending fan conventions and writer’s conferences she reviews indie horror and science fiction films for both her personal blog and HorrorAddicts.net

She is also considering changing her professional title to dramatization specialist because it so much more theatrical than being a mere drama queen.

Live Action Reviews! by Crystal Connor: Callous

Plotline: Shot during a mugging a girl believes she woke up in a hospital, only to realize she is stuck in a coma. She endures the nightmares of existing in the in-between as she fights to wake up from her sinister nightmare.

Who would like it: Fans who appreciate low budget, film school indie films. Foreign films, dream-scapes , surreal films and stories about purgatory. 

High Points: Strong story concept 

Complaints: My only complaint is the English subtitles because everyone in the movie is speaking English. Its clear that English is the actors 2nd or 3rd language but with that being said you can understand them perfectly. I felt that the subtitles took away from the movie.   

Overall: Short entertaining film with a strong story concept that I really enjoyed.

Stars: 3.1

Live Action Reviews! by Crystal Connor: Deranged Foxhole

Plotline: 3 people go to Johnny’s house looking for Jimmy … and end up dead

Complaints: I don’t want to slam this film but there was a lot for me to complain about.

The first is how disconnected the characters were to the particular scene they were in. For instance: the very 1st thing Darlene did when Johnny opened the door was to wrap her arms around him in a bear hug because she was happy to see her dad. Problem is he isn’t her father. It’s never explained why she didn’t know this man wasn’t her father (perhaps Johnny and Jimmy are twins?)

The 2nd thing is none of the characters react the way you expect them too when faced w/a certain situation. For instance: when the mother finds her daughter dead in Johnny’s bedroom she just sorta stands there and waits to be killed, I mean except for the cop, they all kinda do that.

Lastly … the zombies (created by lightning (wft) ) who come outta left field even tho no one in this movie is playing baseball.   

Overall: I didn’t ‘get it’ this one just wasn’t the one for me. 

Where I watched it: Review screener provided to Horror Addicts from Gold Production.
