Aleata Explains It All

Hey everyone, I know I haven't updated my blog in like almost an entire week, so I wanted to share what's going on in my life. I'm starting at Kent State the 30th, I've been getting ready for school, packing, and preparing for my going away party I'm having tomorrow. I've been extremely busy, so I haven't been writing that much. I am, however, buying a new laptop soon. It's just between all the stuff I have to do, I don't know if I'll be updating this blog more or less. I just finally went crazy and was like "I can't do this anymore, I need to do something now". I don't want to sit around this boring, loser town doing nothing with my life. I'm about to be 24 and haven't even made a full length movie yet, so I made a decision. I need to meet new people, and learn new things. Out with the old and in with the new. I'm actually not going for film to your surprise, and my own. Kent doesn't have a film program anyways. I will be taking photojournalism, which really suits me. I'm not giving up on film though, I have lot's of plans for continuing what I'm doing. With school though I think I'll be able to have more time to focus on the stuff I need to. Anyways also wanted to say thank you guys for still reading, and hope everyone is doing great! I'll try to update as much as I can.
Oh and along with everything new in my life, I decided "why not have some new hair too".

Anyways just wanted to say HAPPY FRIDAY THE 13TH EVERYONE! Have a good one, and watch out for people on killing spree's!

Another Talk About Screeners

So, I had my first encounter with someone being rude over a crappy screener. Look over to the left side of the screen and read where Aleata wrote that she is "brutally honest in reviews". I'm not going to sugarcoat anything, If I think your movie is bad, I'm going to say so. Anyways let's get back to this person. I was being constantly harassed by this person to review their movie over and over again. I have a busy life, and also get quite a few movies to review. So being harassed constantly by this person pissed me off pretty bad. Then after I finally post the review, obviously it wasn't to the person's liking, because they went straight into ignore mode. Listen here, If I take time out of my day to write a review about your movie, which is promoting it anyways to my readers, don't cope a fucking attitude with me! You know beforehand that I'm not going to be kissing everyone's asses, have you read half of my reviews? If you're rude to me, do you think I'm going to want to review anymore of your crappy(Or perhaps good) movies? Pry fucking not!
If you send me a request to even watch a movie, I'm on it, eventually. Haha. I'm pretty cool when it comes to helping out independent filmmakers, etc. If you are polite and ask me to review your movie, I'm going to review it. But don't get a tude with me if it's not to your liking. I'm not going to lie to my readers, everything you read here is exactly how I feel, and what I think about these things. So please, in the future, be polite, or I won't deal with you again. Period. You are the one coming to me for help, so please know how to act. Let's just say if you don't want anything bad said about your movies, then don't make movies. Somewhere along the line your going to have to deal with criticism, that's how things work. I review movies. That's what I do. Remember that.

Black Devil Doll BobbleHead

Here's something really neat that I was sent in my e-mail. They have released a black devil doll bobblehead! Nice! So anyways check out the info below if you are interested!


"Cult Collectibles is proud to announce the release of its first "Weird Wobbler" bobblehead style figure from one of the most outrageous underground films ever made: BLACK DEVIL DOLL! Pre-orders are available now with product shipping in September 2010!

The 2008 film is the story of an executed Black militant who is reincarnated into a vicious ventriloquist’s puppet, causing endless mayhem and murder (to put it mildly). Widely hailed by cult film aficionados and simultaneously condemned for its overt (yet completely tongue-in-cheek) offensiveness, Art Ettinger of Ultra Violent magazine stated, "Black Devil Doll is a triumph, seamlessly blending crass un-PC humor with cerebral artistry. The Lewis Brothers deliver one of the most original exploitation films of the new millennium, a singularly unique mix of brain and brawn."

Owner of Cult Collectibles, Mark Jason Murray comments, “I became a tremendous fan of the film even before I saw it and when I started brainstorming what would be the perfect license to launch my toy company, BLACK DEVIL DOLL seemed to be the best fit. Thinking as a collector and fan, this is something that I would love to have in my own collection and since the film character is essentially a “toy” it was an easy choice. From a business perspective, I know the film already has a rabid fan following and that the film’s creators would be able to provide an incredible amount of publicity for it right out of the gate. I am also very keen to work with people who I considered friends.”

The figure was created with great attention to detail while still allowing it to have an identity of its own. "A lot of time was spent getting the details of the figure just right," states Murray. "It was still important for the figure to appear as a characature, which the bobblehead format is famous for, but only slightly as anything "cute" would have gone against the character in the film. It's really very accurate, from the subtleties of the facial expression down to its boots."

Besides holding a knife in one hand, even further details were included to help bring out the spirit of the film character and one of the film’s biggest jokes. “What started as a simple afterthought during the initial planning of the figure turned out to be one of the figure’s best features and one of the most difficult to obtain. We wanted the figure to be holding a bucket of “Oakland Fried Chicken” and initially it came back looking like Colonel Sanders on the bucket which was the exact opposite of what it’s supposed to look like so after multiple design revisions it finally got to where it needed to be and it brings a whole new level of hilarity to the figure that I am sure fans of the movie will really enjoy. I am very happy with everything about this figure. It was great to work with the creators of the character and film and perhaps we can collaborate on something else in the future.”

Murray’s company strategy is simple. “I really want to do figures that put Cult Collectibles in a category of its own and this provided me with the ability to do just that. I anticipate the figure will sell out quickly.”

Cult Collectibles is already at work on three future limited edition “Weird Wobbler” figures scheduled for release late 2010/early 2011:

- The “Demon Doll” will pay tribute to the Italian horror films of actress Geretta Geretta (Lamberto Bava’s DEMONS, Lucio Fulci’s MURDEROCK, RATS: NIGHTS OF TERROR, etc.)

- The “head wound girl” from Lucio Fulci’s THE BEYOND (in association with GRINDHOUSE RELEASEING)

- Lucio Fulci from his film CAT IN THE BRAIN (in association with GRINDHOUSE RELEASING)

BLACK DEVIL DOLL “Weird Wobbler” details:

-Limited edition of 1,000 hand numbered figures

-7 inches of lightweight polyresin

-housed in a full color retail box designed by BLACK DEVIL DOLL poster artist, Stephen Romano

-Special exclusive BLACK DEVIL DOLL trading card available ONLY during pre-order period through

-Pre-orders available now with figure scheduled to ship by mid-September 2010

The Grudge 3 (2009)

The Grudge 3 (2009)
Director: Toby Wilkins
Status: Bad Movie Review

Reminds me of Jack and the beanstalk

This is such a BAD movie I HAD to review it, because I just have so many nice Aleata-friendly things to say about it. One of my best friends Adam King passed away and I got a good chunk of his movies, and this just happened to be one of them. Seriously this is one of the only bad ones, Adam has fantastic taste in movies. So I can't help myself I've been in a real foul mood lately, so time to vent some of that anger. Funny-Anger that you guys are going to giggle yourself to sleep thinking about. I really enjoyed Toby Wilkins movie Splinter, so when I saw that he directed this movie, I was extremely disappointed. What were you thinking Toby? This movie failed in all it's appalling aspects.

Alright before I unleash my unstoppable Aleata shit talking terror on this movie, let me give you a quick synopsis. This is the third movie in the grudge trilogy, for those of you who haven't seen them, you don't want to. It jumps around a bit in the beginning. We're at a mental institution, then in Japan, then back in America. But if you have a brain you'll keep up with everything. It's pretty simple, just like the entire movie itself. The whole thing just drags along slowly, even when we are watching people get killed. That is pretty much all off screen anyways, GAY!
This story focuses on a family of an oldest brother Max (Gil McKinney), second oldest sister Lisa (Johanna Braddy), and the littlest sister Rose (Jadie-Rose Hobson). Rose has some problem where she needs a breathing tank, because she has these little bitch fits. You know really bad gasping convulsive fits of idiocy on the floor, that's actually a disease? I thought they just called those alcoholic seizures(inside joke). Anyways they are living in a apartment building that Max is working at and trying to rent out the rooms. BUT there's something evil lurking in the apartment and killing people. Something slithering on the floor like a snake and rubbing your face while your trying to sleep. WHAT IN GODS NAME COULD DO SUCH A THING?!?!!!. I'm telling you now, if some little naked Asian kid came front rolling at me on a stair landing screeching like a rabid cat, that little fucker would be punted right through the railing. I'm talking a round house to the face. Aleata Illusion doesn't play that shit! I guess this family is just a bunch of poon tangs, so they are scared of these supernatural forces of dead retards. So more strange happenings start taking place in the building, along with a few deaths, and that's about it. Shawnee Smith(Amanda from Saw) makes an appearance as a doctor to a boy who gets killed by the spirit at the beginning of the movie. So Shawnee gets offed, then Andy(Beau Mirchoff) Lisa boyfriend she bangs all over the building gets offed, the building manager gets meowed to death, and some Asian broad gets offed by Max...that's about it. If I'm put through complete garbage, I always demand TITS and GORE! This does not deliver ANYTHING! The characters are horribly stupid, especially Lisa, of which the movie focuses most on. She pretty much realizes all the things going on when it's about to late, and her brother is a possessed maniac. Really lady? How could you miss the signs? The Asian lady tells her, she's see's dead people around her apartment, and people are dying everywhere, then her brother gets possessed, And mainly that little Asian boy imitating a dying cat obnoxiously everywhere.. How stupid can you possibly be? Does she also not know the difference between her asshole and her mouth either? When the Asian lady(who's sister died there) comes back to save the day, Lisa just grabs her sister and runs off like a big pussy. She only wanted Rose to ingest some AIDS infected blood, what's wrong with that? You've saved the day Rose, but now I'm sorry to inform you that your an 8 year old with AIDS! Tricky tricky Asians, you knew there was a catch right? I'm bullshitting you about the whole AIDS prospect, but that should teach you guys not to drink someone's random bowl of blood. Aleata Illusion even hands out life lessons in movie reviews, BAM!

So if I see one more god damn, bad American remake of an already BAD Asian movie, with little ghost kids meowing like cats...I swear to fuckballs! It's not scary, I laugh for like a couple seconds then want to burn my eyes out with a red hot poker. The kid doesn't even move his mouth, he just has it wide open and a cat sound coming out. Secondly the whole doing front rolls on stair landings and crawling like a legless person on the floor doesn't need to be done in a movie ever again. I don't understand how that is scary whatsoever either. Let's move onto the actors, watching these actors try to struggle through every scene with their shitty NON-acting abilities made me want to special delivery myself anthrax. What's so special about the special effects you ask? NOTHING! It's a bitch crawling on the ground in fast forward looking like a palsy victim in white paint. I'm sick of people bragging and carrying on about how original these American remakes are. Then there's the people who see Ju-On, and there like "did you see the original, it's so amazing, and blah blah blah" trying to impress. They sit at home with their copies of The Grudge and Pulse thinking there has been a break-through in cinema. NO! Listen here betches, you want to watch a real good Asian film, try Wild Zero, Red Eye, or Riki-Oh: The Story Of Riky. I'm Ill tempered about these movies because they don't deserve credit, there's nothing remotely spectacular about them. The American idiots who remake these movies, just want to get some quick cash. They know nothing, and they prove that as we all have to bear witness to the trash. They are repetitive, and boring.
The opening credits weren't original, but they were okay looking. Let's talk about the Asian heroine. First off the Asian lady Noako(Emi Ikihata) who plays her can't imitate an Asian accent worth a shit. I could mimic it better than she does. Lady, you are fucking Asian, what is wrong with you? You don't have any relatives that speak broken English in their Asian accents. You can't even watch a Kung-Fu movie and learn to imitate them. You ma'am are a bad actress, now you shall be stoned! Not like weed, but like "she's a witch stone her". If you think you're fooling anyone with that accent, you were clearly smoking crackrocks in between shooting. I also love in movies when a dead body is being removed from the scene of the crime by the paramedics, and the dead persons head always gets covered up at the last second and someone sees it. That's all bullshit, you know they cover that shit up before they would even have left the room. I'm a sucker for details. Then we have a completely random scene of Max scraping lettering off a glass door. They make the scene seem like he's sitting in a Saw room trying to escape a trap. With all the fast shots, and awkward extreme noises, it was way ridiculous and uncalled for. Because the fact that he's doing his job scraping letters off a door is so important to the plot. Another scene that was ridiculous was the one where the big sister comes back to save the little sister. Okay, she's peeks around the doorway, and the brother is right in front of her, I mean right there. She yells "ROSE" and somehow magically he doesn't hear her. Then the little sister walks right by him and they run off. You know, he just didn't seem to notice anything at all. The scene was way to long as well, I played an entire game of SORRY waiting for it to end. Then one of the most retarded scenes in the movie(Aside from every other scene) is when Max starts running himself into a wall like Helen Keller. *Shakes head* I rest my case.

Get your dick breath out of here lady!

This movie screams YOU'VE SEEN ME BEFORE, I SUCK! There's not one new or fresh thing about this movie. It's part of a deplorable trilogy, in which every movie the exact same thing happens. The only thing that changes is the lame characters, and no one likes them anyways. Butt fucking bad actors! We saw the ending coming from a mile away, and BOO to that!
0/5 Stars

Here's my much cooler interpretation of the Asian cat boy:

Here's the trailer, shows a bit of all 3 craptastic Grudge movies:

Okay, for some reason my followers unfollow, then follow me again. I'm guessing it's twitter being glitched. Because it's also dicking with my followers, making me unfollow people mysteriously all the time. If this happens, please re-add me, and I'll follow you back again.

Roger Corman Presents SPLATTER

Director: Joe Dante
Status: Web Show Update!

Splatter is something I was really freakin' excited about. I heard about it awhile ago, and was like "that is just to fucking cool"! Splatter is brought to us by the legendary Roger Corman, Written by Richard Christian Matheson, Directed by Joe Dante, and stars the one and only Corey Feldman! I heard it was airing on, but now it is also available to watch on . I gotta say I'm about to go watch these, and get back to you guys about them. I mean I had a big enough crush on Corey when he was in "Bordello Of Blood". Mmmmm Corey in a leather jacket, and then as a vampire, SCORE! So to see him again as a rockstar type, is extremely exciting for me. Not in the I'm going to masturbate to his on screen personality way or anything..pfft..whatever I know you guys are giving me that strange look...but don't turn away, I have more to talk about! The show also stars Mark Alan, Tara Leigh, Stuart Pankin, Tony Todd, and Erin Way. Now I'm not sure if this was just a one season sort of thing, or if they have more in the works, but I'll be sure to let you guys know. Or shit, if you know, let me know. Haha.

Here's the synopsis on hulu:
"Death metal lead singer, Jonny Splatter, commits suicide after uttering a voodoo curse. His former lead guitarist, bass player, manager, psychiatrist and lover are invited to his eerie Hollywood Hills mansion to hear the reading of his will. Each will get what is coming to them and it's not at all what they expect. And to their horror, they'll discover that Jonny is not quite as dead as they thought".

Now let me explain the catch to this show. After every episode the viewers were able to vote on who they wanted to bite the dust next! I love the whole idea of that and can't wait to see what happens!
Here's a teaser that I found on youtube:

And what the hell are you waiting for, Check out the episodes below:
