Now this is a happy coincidence. Today marks the beginning of our descent into the seedy Otherworld in our first ever Silent Hill Week, and it just so happens that a crowd-funding project for a fan film called Silent Hill Requiem kicked off yesterday. The Internet works in mysterious ways, I think.
We get so many fan films for other series, from Resident Evil to The Last of Us, but rarely do we see one inspired by Konami’s longstanding survival horror franchise. Requiem aims to remedy that by turning this into a feature-length film. More after the break! READ MORE
This fan-made film is a little cheesy, but then again, I suppose that’s appropriate since both Resident Evil and Devil May Cry have brought their fair share of cheese over the years. In Resident Evil: The Nightmare of Dante, half of the S.T.A.R.S. team — the good half, with Jill, Chris and Barry — team up with Dante to mow down a couple dozen zombies, including a couple of the chainsaw-wielding Ganados from Resident Evil 4. Sadly, neither gets much screen time.
The stunts and special effects are fantastic for a fan-made short, and it does make me wonder whether or not Dante would retain his powers, and possibly his sarcasm, if he were reanimated by the T-virus. Discuss? READ MORE
Boredom Bytes is back! Like the cloaked wanderer drifting from Tristram to Kurast, this series is unpredictable in its visits. It’s here today, sure, but where will it be tomorrow, or next week? Who knows?
I have two intensely awesome fan-made video game inspired short films for you to enjoy after the jump. One is inspired by the darker themes in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and the other is a bloody short film that Fallout fans should enjoy. Read on for more! READ MORE
I should probably qualify that title with an “It’ll be the funniest thing you see today, if you’re a Resident Evil fan.” There we go. Now, if you fail to find any laughs, you can’t sue me.
This comedy short is brimming with inside jokes and nods to Resident Evil, some of which will only be gleaned by fans of Capcom’s horror series. I’m especially fond of the handgun with the “standard issue” three bullets, a potential problem that’s remedied by the fact that they’ve conveniently scattered ammunition about the facility. Actually, I take that back. Even if you’re not a fan of the series, there’s still a good chance this will be the funniest thing you watch today. READ MORE
The Joker’s origin has largely been a mystery throughout the history of comics, with few creators ever daring to tell how the Clown Price of Crime came to be. Alek Gearhart of SmokingAlien3 Productions has taken it upon himself to explore the Joker’s origin in his feature length fan film, Joker Rising. I have yet to watch Joker Rising in it’s entirety, but from what I have seen it’s one of the better fan-made films out there. SmokingAlien3 has also announced that this is the first movie in what will soon be a trilogy.
You can watch The rough cut below for a limited time. The filmmakers want your input before they put on the finishing touches. READ MORE
There are fan films, and then there are fan films. This is the latter.
Crafted by Wayside Creations, the same team that brought us the Nuka Break web series a couple years back, Fallout Nuka Break: Red Star is a short film that will really make you want to play some Fallout. Part of why it’s so good — other than the solid acting, cinematography and writing — is the film benefited from creative input from several developers behind the Fallout games.
If you have 25 minutes to spare, you can watch it after the break. READ MORE
Haven’t you heard? Dead Island: Riptide is out, and it’s pretty good. If you haven’t gone out and grabbed a copy, this fan film should tide you over until you do. It’s called Dead Island: No Retreat, and it’s the work of Youtuber pwnisher. It also features Youtube celebrity Toby Turner, better known as Tobuscus, and without spoiling anything, it most definitely has an ending worthy of the series’ name. READ MORE
If you read the sexy co-op REVIEW Adam and I did of Deadlight, then you know the game mildly amused us, and then slowly fell off a cliff. Well this fan made film by You Tube user Jason Forge never falls off. Incredibly narrated, just as well as the game with awesome graphics and zombies. Check it out!
We just saw the live action MASS EFFECT TRAILER. It’s awesome. The video below is a “fan” film made by director Dan Trachtenberg. Podcast fans might know him from The Totally Rad Show podcast. It came out back in August, but I just saw it for the 1st time and thought I’d share it with you guys. Another great example that shows us good video game movies are possible.
After seeing the fan film Beyond Black Mesa, you should be pretty excited to see this fan film for Fallout. Titled, Nuka Break. Self explanatory. Thanks again to the always sexy Jonathan Barkan for the heads up on this. What could be better than a nice ice cold Nuka Cola on a hot day out in the wastes? Check it out below.
