Second Class Cinema Episode 58: Deathgasm (2015)

Check out the trailer here:

It was Brittany's turn to pick this week, and we're sure it will surprise everyone to know that she picked a horror-comedy.  We watched the 2015 New Zealand gore-fest, Deathgasm.

After being forced to live with his overly religious aunt and uncle, Brodie tries to make the best of things by making a few new friends and starting a metal band. He even attracts the attention of his classmate, Medina, who is a total babe. Unfortunately for him, it's not enough to make him feel at home. He gets beat up by his cousin for talking to Medina, his family treats him like the spawn of Satan, and his classmates think he's a freak. So when he and his best friend Zakk discover an ancient text- a song to summon demons, known as the Black Hymn- it's not a surprise that they think it's metal as fuck and decide to play it. Bloody chaos ensues, and now it's up to Dethgasm (and Medina) to stop the demons and prevent the demon Aeloth from taking over the world. 

This movie was a gem in the same vein as Dead Alive and Evil Dead, and was a gory joy to watch. Listen up as we discuss dildo murder, barbed wire weed-whackers and the power of chainmail metal babes! BRUTAAAAL! Find out how it measure up on The Fuck Scale!

Internet Trolls and Critics in the Age of Rotten Tomatoes - A Look at the Critical Response to GOTTI

Hate, intolerance, and cruelty are the most valued currencies in the digital age. Online publications deal in the same eye-catching tabloid headlines that were once exclusive to rags like WEEKLY WORLD NEWS and the NATIONAL ENQUIRER. The monetization of clicks is ruining many forms of journalism and film criticism is just one of them. When organizations can see what headlines are generating revenue its only natural that sensationalism would start to rise. There is no consorted hivemind like conspiracy to destroy certain films but rather internet activity that has boosted a certain type of writer. From the outside, online film critics share quite a bit with their Twitter troll counterparts.

The critical response to John Travolta's passion project Gotti has been less than favorable, in fact, it has been downright abysmal. A project over ten years in the making, Travolta has poured his heart and soul into this venture. And many writers seem to take pleasure in the film's failure.

NO ALTERNATIVE review

Depression is often marked by sadness, despair, and hopelessness. The sense that things will not get better is something most of us pass through at different points in our lives. But depression is something more than that. It’s not just a temporary feeling, it’s a debilitating emotional state that you can’t simply pull yourself out of. The angry outbursts, irritability, and frustration that come along with depression can isolate individuals suffering from this condition and push them deeper into their own thoughts. Everyone needs to be heard and sometimes those who can’t express themselves in traditional forms find their voice in art.
Edvard Munch wrestled with agoraphobia and frequently had hallucinations, one of which inspired THE SCREAM, a painting so iconic that even the most casual art enthusiast is familiar with the piece.  Sylvia Plath took a more direct approach with THE BELL JAR and laid out the details of her depression with brutal honesty.
