CALL GIRL (2014) – Review

Wendigogo Girl

Back in December I posted a trailer for the upcoming film CALL GIRL, directed by Jill Sixx Gevargizian.  Since that time it has premiered at the HorrorHound Weekend Film Festival in Cincinnati and gained quite a bit of recognition, not only from the fans of Tristan Risk (AMERICAN MARY) and Laurence R. Harvey (THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE 2, and 3) but obviously for great filmmaking as well.

Harvey (The Human Centipede II, The Human Centipede III) and Tristan Risk (American Mary, The Editor), just premiered at HorrorHound Weekend Film Festival in Cincinnati, Saturday, March 22nd, 2014.

Now in his 20s, Tim is newly released from protective custody and only wants to move on with his life; but Kaylie, still haunted by that fateful night, is convinced her parents’ deaths were caused by something else altogether: a malevolent supernatural force­­ unleashed through the Lasser Glass, an antique mirror in their childhood home.

Little Blog of Horror

HorrorHound Weekend would not be complete without a killer film festival, which lasts all weekend. I have gotten the great opportunity to see a very impressive short that will be premiering at the festival on Saturday at 11am, ‘Service’ .

SERVICEPOSTER10.5‘Service’ was written and directed by Jerry Pyle and stars Deena Thompson and James Babson. Deena, known from ‘The Dancing World’ does not have an extensive line of acting credits, but she has been in many music videos for some big names including Sigur Ros (with Shia LeBeouf) and David Bowie (with Gary Oldman) (see her videos here, Sigur RosDavid Bowie). Her costar, James has appeared in films such as ‘Hellboy’, ‘Ghost Team One’ and ‘Soloman Kane’.

Synopsis:

A young mom has to bring her daughter to her work and discovers the house she cleans for a living has been invaded by a dangerous man.

Paul Sampson assembles an impressive cast of some well-known faces, with some newcomers as well, in this gory action/horror/comedy which is steeped in history. The film took four years to make distribution and sees cult icon David Carradine in a posthumous role, having sadly passed away in 2009 before this film saw its release.

The story begins back in The Crusades, with head of the ancient Order of the Knights Templar, Lord Gregoire played by writer, and director Paul Sampson, (who incidentally bears a shocking resemblance to Machine Head Front man Rob Flynn when he appears as the Lord ) being betrayed by his men for a stash of gold they have uncovered. Gregoire swears as he breathes his last breath he will take…
