Today’s World of Death episode spans the Atlantic featuring the work of filmmakers from the US and the UK. Who’s got the funnier accent may depend on where you’re standing, but the language of fake blood and inventive kills is universal.
First up we have DEMON MIST from Jason Wright. Jason comes to us from across the pond and brings with him an extensive background in the zombie movie genre. Demon Mist follows the exploits of four hard-partying British youths who steal away to a remote “cabin in the woods” to drink and take their clothes off. Demon Mist plays out like a 3 minute teaser reel for a much more expansive, fleshed out horror film that blends the concepts of Saw, Evil Dead, and (big shocker) zombie movies.
Rounding out today’s episode we have OF BLOOD from accomplished LA filmmakers David Bornstein and Matt Groves. Of Blood spins the tale of a vampire (who looks eerily like a guy I used to work at Subway with back in the 90s) that gets accosted by a diverse looking gang of LA street hoods. Hijinks, mayhem, and combat set to the tune of indistinguishable punk rock music ensue. The action here is really well shot and I’ll forever be a fan of the whole “blood spray hitting the camera lens” gag. It’s a four minute vampire flick, but it’s an enjoyable four minute vampire flick. Good job guys!
If you dig either of these films be sure to look their respective filmmakers up on Vimeo and IMDB, as they all have extensive bodies of work and are currently involved in upcoming projects as well. World of Death out!
