Class of 1999 (1990, USA) Vestron Video Blu-ray Review

Class of 1999 (1990)

Class of 1999 is a spiritual successor to Mark L. Lester’s Class of 1984; a tale of revenge that depicted an increasingly violent gang clashing with the music teacher of a troubled inner-city high school. The tagline for Class of 1984“Look at us. We are the future. You can’t stop us. Don’t even try.” – was derived from a comment made in the film by the leader of the gang, Peter Stegman (played by director Timothy Van Patten): “I am the future!”
But that was 1984. The year is now 1999…

“The ultimate teaching machine… out of control.”

One Cut of the Dead (2017, Japan) Review

One Cut of the Dead (カメラを止めるな!) (2017)

Written and directed by Shinichiro Ueda, One Cut of the Dead begins with an impressive 37 minute long take set in an abandoned Japanese water filtration plant. “It’s just an urban legend… On record, this place was built for water filtration. But the Japanese army used here for some sort of experimentation… Human experimentation. Like…bringing the dead back to life.” Shinichiro Ueda’s movie injects the zombie trope with new life; thus reanimating the sub-genre. This is not Dawn of the Dead, nor is it Shaun of the Dead. Instead, One Cut of the Dead celebrates low-budget filmmaking.

“Making a zombie movie, on a live broadcast, in one take?”
