American Horror Project Vol 1:
One of the reoccurring features here at The Nerd Mentality has been Garrett’s Films from the Basement series. In it, he watches and reviews the bad, the downtrodden, and also the obscure. Why you ask? Some would say he likes to torture himself because he was never allowed new and nice things living in the basement. He was shackled to a chair only having ice cream for his meals. What he really wanted that whole time was a Baby Ruth. Now that he is allowed to live above-ground and watch some decent films, he still likes to recall his time spent below. This week Garrett and Rich watched the Arrow Video film series American Horror Project volume 1. The box set contains 3 films which we will talk about this week .
The films in this box set are only loosely based in thematic horror. We have for your listening pleasure our views on Malatesta’s Carnival of Blood which is a surrealist zero budget nightmare filled with every cliched horror villain trope imaginable. The Witch Who Came From the Sea which is a psychological horror about a woman who is trying to deal with her past and her sexual urges. And finally, The Premonition which is a supernatural horror based around a child being kidnapped.
We hope you you enjoy our discussions and also welcome anyone to join in and comment below. Our new email address is firstname.lastname@example.org which you can send suggestions or thoughts. Furthermore, we hope to continue the podcast each week and keep a steady stream of basement films!
