Today I am continuing my look at the Indie studies after looking at an English one, an American one I am going to go for this Australian one ‘StrongMan Pictures Entertainment’. This group of film makers aim to make very film a new film genre and aim to make for that fans will enjoy.
They only have two feature length films so far and I have actually been lucky enough to see one of them.
MurderDrome (2013) Roller derby dames go up against supernatural evil. This is actually the one I have seen you can check out my full review here. This is a fun film with a kick ass soundtrack and plenty of action, it shows you don’t need to spend much money to make an enjoyable film. The budget here according to the IMDB is 6,000 AUD.
From Parts Unknown: Fight Like a Girl (2014) This is their newest release which has a release date in their home nation but not overseas yet. The plot goes as a young girl Charlie sees her Daddy, a Pro Wrestling Champion, die in the ring. It starts her quest to become a wrestler in his memory. No easy task in the face of disapproval from her boyfriend, a pesky day job, and a psycho boss who runs her into the ground. It doesn’t seem like Charlie will ever find time to chase her dreams.
When Charlie’s psycho boss steals unstable military technology and unleashes homicidal minions on an unsuspecting world Charlie has no choice but to bring the body slams and take these murderous Jabronis for a stroll down smack down boulevard.
Fight like a girl, it’s the end of the world.
These two movies are a great example of taking a sporting world and adding in a horror element and making it work to be entertaining.
Now I ask my fans would you watch either of these films?
