“There are some neat ideas in (Mad Genius). … It definitely grew on me over the course of watching it and ended up being pleasurable.” – Rafe “I enjoyed the characters and I think the acting was good. I liked the whole premise and I liked where it went.” – Jeff “I like the cast. I like Chris Mason and I like Scott Mechlowicz playing the two leads. I like their relationship together. … I really thought what they brought was highly entertaining and fascinating to watch.” – DocDirector: Royce Gorsuch Cast: Spencer Locke, Scott Mechlowicz, Faran Tahir
Jurassic DeadA cracked scientist aligns with the Axis of Evil to bring down the US of A with EMP blasts, toxic zombification gas and an unleashing of the ultimate undead killing monstrosity — the Z-REX. When a hot-wired militia squad and a crew of college hipsters are thrown together to do something about it, the chaotic Predator-Thunder action runs amok.

Just take it, and enjoy the ride.” – Vanessa “I think there are people out there who will love (Jurassic Dead), just for its sheer badness and the puppetry. â€¦ I think itâ€™s actually poking fun at itself. – Jeff “Thereâ€™s a weird charm to it because itâ€™s so bonkers. â€¦ It almost feels like a cartoon.” – DocDirector: Milko Davis w/ Thomas Martwick Cast: Matt Block, Cooper Elliot, Ben Johnson, Andy Haman

I enjoyed this flick. â€¦ I think itâ€™s worth a watch.” – Jeff “The more you like Bigfoot, the more youâ€™re going to like this film.” – DocDirector: Justin Lee Cast: Kevin Makely, Todd A. Robinson, Amanda Wyss, Summer Spiro, Lance Henriksen, Adrienne Barbeau
