Ahoy, Citizens!

This week on SCC, we had our BFF Tyler on, yet again, to help us dissect our newest Second Class flick. And it should come as no surprise, that as a group, we decided to watch the highly anticipated (for us, anyway), Samurai Cop 2: Deadly Vengeance!

This movie picks up right where Samurai Cop ends, but then launches us 25 years into the present day where there is a deadly turf war going on between two Samurai gangs, because obviously. Unable to solve a string of recent killings, Frank Washington sets out to find his old partner, Joe Marshall (the Samurai Cop), in hopes that Joe can help him solve the crimes. Throw in some bizarrely futuristic settings, inexplicable music selections, and Tommy Wiseau, and apparently you've got a movie.

If you are a fan of the original Samurai Cop, you're going to want to give this episode a listen. Tyler joined us for his first viewing of Samurai Cop earlier that day, so we were all brushed up and ready to compare. We discuss the storyline of this film, why every actress they hired looks exactly the same, and why CGI blood and bruises were necessary.

You can rent in on Vimeo here! Is it worth the $8.99? Find out and listen!

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.

Film Threat Presents launches at Comic Con with The Theta Girl

33 years after its premiere as the rogue, iconoclastic fanzine championing indie film, Film Threat is back. First as a website, FilmThreat.com, relaunched last year, and now as a distribution label, catering to the same demographic that loved the disruptive magazine so much during its print run between 1985 and 1997.

The first release, scheduled for September 18th, is the micro-budget indie horror film THE THETA GIRL.

THE THETA GIRL, a feature film produced by first-time filmmakers David Axe and Christopher Bickel, has been currently ravaging the film festival circuit and building a dedicated fanbase.

He went on, "This is the first film that we are releasing under our new 'Film Threat Presents' label. I think you can tell from this teaser, it's the type of film you wo…
