Review: Mothra vs Godzilla (1964) (January 2016)

Mothra vs Godzilla (1964)... will the BIG G Destroy Japan, again?
It was time to cross over the Kaiju monster Franchise, again from Toho. It's Mothra vs Godzilla (1964). A giant monster-sized egg washes up on shore in Japan where the natives, news and media have been taken in by it's attention! Before the scientists get to study the egg, greedy corporate business men claim the giant item for themselves in order to display for their own gain. It is revealed that egg belongs to the Adult Mothra - from Mothra (1961) and the twin fairies known as The Shobijin warn the men to give the egg back as this upsets mother-nature's earth balance! The business men also want the twin Shobijin.

Godzilla rises from the ground and throws a fit and wants to destroy Japan in his usual rage! It's up to the ageing Adult Mothra to try and save the day with a plea from Japan to prevent the destruction from Godzilla. What is in the egg? Will Mothra be able to save Japan in time?

Another full-color, Tohoscope outing sees a vengeful Godzilla take on Japan, it's military and Mothra in this film cross-over. Mothra is a huge moth-creature with a giant wing-span able to destroy cities and fight the BIG G - however, this time she is on the side of humanity! Ishiro Honda would direct, again. Akira Ifukube would also score the film! The film also stars in a leading role, Akira Takarada (Gojira [1954]). It was released in the USA as Godzilla vs the Thing!

  2. You could try The Return of Godzilla or something from the 80's or 90's? That was when the G movies were considered taken serious again with modern special effects at the time! :-)

Interview: Michael Haberfelner ([re]SearchMyTrash) (Screenwriter) (July 2017)

I got to question Screenwriter and owner of www.searchmytrash.com in Michael Haberfelner. He is currently going to be working with USA Actress, Debra Lamb. He also collaborates with actress Eirian Cohen and actor Laurence Harvey. His screen writer credits include,  A Killer Conversation (2015) and Talk of the Dead (2017).
Tell me about any upcoming Projects you are working on?
Well, the next one is the big one, THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS ZOMBIES, the first feature film I’m going to produce. We start shooting in a little over a week, so all buzzing with excitement and knee-deep in preparations ;) The story is basically a woman welcoming her ex into her house, totally oblivious to the fact that he’s actually a zombie, and her husband, who has killed that very same ex in the first place, is understandably less than thrilled. Eirian Cohen stars as the woman, with Rudy Barrow being her husband, Rami Hilmi the zombie ex, and we have guest appearances by US horror icons Debra Lamb and Lynn Low…

Review: "I'm A Gun!" (2017) - Directed by Mikeal Burgin!! (October 2017)

Intense short film I'm A Gun (2017) is directed, written and edited by Mikeal Burgin. It's a ten minute film narrated by a Hitman who is killing off his Prey in the City. It has got a slight Tarantino feel in it's approach with a bit of dark humor and obvious Violence! It features a few twists here and there - featuring some bad language and intense drama scenes, too! For Mature Audiences, Only!

I really enjoyed I'm A Gun! The soundtrack was killer towards the end and keeps you on your toes. Burgin is a crafty film maker dipping into genres which takes the audience on a wild, unpredictable ride throughCinema Craftiness!

Plot:"A gun-for-hire accepts a shady contract targeting a beautiful and deadly woman. When the mark's disabled brother gets in the way, the job quickly turns into a desperate fight for survival inside a den of madness and brutality.".

RIP Debra Mayer: (1969 - 2015) (May 2015)

It's a sad day, there is a rumor of the passing of Full Moon Entertainment actresses passing. She played in Blood Dolls (1999), Voodoo Academy (2002) and other films. 
Director Charles Band posted the following on Facebook: "I am so saddened by the news of Debra Mayer passing away. She was a very talented actress and extremely devoted to her craft. Debra was in several Full Moon films and I have many fond memories of her excellent work in Dr. Moreau’sHouse of Pain and especially Blood Dolls. She was extremely devoted to her career and left behind an impressive body of work that many admire, and I only hope she is able to somehow observe the outpouring of love and affection for the films she was in and the characters she played by the many fans who followed her. May she truly rest in peace.".

Another friend of hers, J.R. Bookwalter also wrote on the social media site: "Stunned to hear about the sudden passing of Debra Mayer, who I first met during post-production on…
