    Film Bizarro's Best of {2013}


    Just released yesterday, it's here! One of my favorite end of the year lists. Three of my favorite films made the list!

    #26


    PIECES OF TALENT
    Director: Joe Stauffer

    Joe Stauffer and David Long's film, "Pieces of Talent" came as a great surprise this year. While the trailer was enticing, it was easy to assume it would be typical low-budget horror fodder. That was not the case at all with the movie, as it is an intelligently and cleverly written piece about obsession and revenge. It's an interesting movie where even the gore and death scenes feel less exploitive and more like an integral part of a story of an artist who goes to great lengths to create his masterpiece. There's a unique style to the movie within the movie that allows "Pieces of Talent" to stand out from the flooded market of low-budget and indie horror movies.

    THE RAMBLER
    Director: Calvin Reeder

    A lot of people that have seen "The Rambler" might stop reading this list here. People seem to hate this movie with a passion! Personally I couldn't believe my luck when a movie I knew nothing about threw me into a roller coaster ride of psychological terror, gooey violence/effects and bad taste comedy. It doesn't seem to give a fuck about anything - yes, it's randomness but it differs from many "trying-too-hard" random movies by actually being entertaining. It's easy to be random, but to be random and actually manage to surprise is rare to me. Perhaps one of the biggest surprises is that Dermot Mulroney acts in a movie where he's puked on by a demon. If you can ignore the lack of story and just enjoy this as a twisted ride (which I luckily did) then I think you've got a weird night ahead of you.

    FOUND
    Director: Scott Schirmer

    Is this a horror movie or social commentary? Sure it brings up racism, dysfuctional families and the likes, but this is definitely a horror movie wearing the performance mask of tragedy. And quite a heavy one as well. It's disturbing, violent and provocative. It's a great addition to horror this year, which has at times seemed to be lacking in heavy-hitting punches. Though the brother wasn't a completely convincing character at times, there are few moments where this isn't a great and very intriguing movie. "Found" is a movie that is already being discussed quite a bit, and I doubt that will be stopping soon.



    Heres the link so read on!

    I've seen none of these. Anyone see Blood Glacier? That one sounds decent.

    Cool to see Pieces of Talent and Found up there, both great flix and deserving of a lot of attention! haven't seen The Rambler as of yet but will do so soon.

    Two other films that made the list and that I loved were Coyote and His Devils Night, both great flix!

    I haven't see Blood Glacier but wouldn't mind checking it out as well.

    I've seen Toad Road. It wasn't all that great but not the worst I've seen. Just a whole lotta rambling with an Urban Legend story thrown in. See it for yourself...

    I have Found, The Rambler, & Pieta already in my queue. I should be watching within the next day or 2.

    Just watched Vampire. A great movie but nothing like I expected. I give it a 8/10. Probably should not even be classified as a horror movie. There was nothing scary about it. Go see it for yourself.

    I absolutely loved it!!..., I read somewhere that "Vampire is a dark drama about sad people with fractured minds and cracked emotions."

    An extremely accurate description, and I think about this film quite often.
