If you’re a fan like me – you might wanna check this out. It’s for a movie called THE TORMENT OF LAURIE ANN CULLOM…and I gotta say…after watching the trailer…this is my kind of movie. (lol) Check out all the goodies below!

A young woman’s fear of the outside world is nothing compared to what she will soon find inside her own home.Writer-director Mark Dossett pays homage to old-school 80’s horror flicks by setting his film in 1988.

Due to a horrific attack in 1987, 26 year old Laurie Ann Cullom (Shannon Scott) has become completely terrified of the outside world. She finds comfort by moving back home with her divorced mother and living her life safely behind locked doors and windows.

However, when her mom is away on a business trip, Laurie starts to notice that things are out of place and she may not be alone. She must overcome her paralyzing fear of the outside world or face the evil presence that is stalking her from the shadows.


Mark says, “When I saw Shannon’s online audition, she was the only actress out of 150 that made me really feel she was truly terrified and I didn’t want to see her get hurt. To me, that had to be the most important aspect of the character in order for the audience to care about her as well. One of the cool things about doing an independent film is that you get to break the rules. I decided to shoot this film sequentially because I wanted the audience to warm up to Shannon at the same time as she warmed up to the camera. I truly feel her talent gets stronger with every minute that passes by on screen. She actually plays 2 on screen characters because she is that good!”

Basing his film in the late 80’s affords Mark to remind us of a time when the immediacy of such items as the internet and cell phones were not available. A time that, while simpler, was in many ways more dangerous.

The Torment Of Laurie Ann Cullom marks the feature film debut of lead actress Shannon Scott and writer – director Mark Dossett.

THE TORMENT OF LAURIE ANN CULLOM was shot in Apopka and Ocala Florida. The film was made with a skeleton crew of 3 people which consisted of the director, lead actress and a boom operator. The most people ever on set at one time was 5.

Check out the trailer below…

Crawl or Die

So I checked out the sci-fi/horror flick CRAWL OR DIE.

Wait! First let me say that I actually went out and bought this movie – from Wal-Mart. Can we say nightmare?! (lol) THAT was an adventure that could have been made in to a mini movie itself. (lol)

So lets talk CRAWL OR DIE.

In a future devastated by disease, a virus has swept Planet Earth. A virus so deadly that it has not only left the planet completely uninhabitable, but has also killed off the only hope humankind has of repopulating the species fertile women. All, that is, except one. Special Forces have been called in and given the mission of delivering the only survivor to her new home planet, Earth Two. All at the top of their individual fields, the team tasked with protecting and delivering the young woman known only as The Package is made up of six members: Mic, the leader of the unit; Big Guy, an explosives expert with a knack for mountain climbing; Sniper, a crack-shot Scotsman; Snoop, experienced in Technology and Telecommunication; Doc, a Harvard Medical Professional; and Tank, a tough-as-nails, no nonsense career soldier, and the only female of the group. Classified as a Blue Planet, the team sets off for Earth Two, believing their destination to be both safe and unoccupied. They were dead wrong. Forced underground upon landing, the team finds themselves in a bunker being hunted by an unseen force. Left with no options, they must wind their way through an endless set of tunnels and rooms that decrease in size with every step forward they take. Fighting exhaustion, claustrophobia, and a bloodthirsty creature that is immune to their bullets, the team must crawl deeper through the quickly shrinking subterranean tunnels. They have no choice. The creature is closing in behind them and their mission is clear: Protect the Package at all costs. Who will survive in this terrifying game of cat and mouse?! When you have a homicidal monster on your heels, and a two-foot wide dirt tunnel in front of you, your only option is to Crawl or Die.

I dug this movie. For being a indie/low budget flick – it was pretty solid. What little special effects it had – it was pretty cool. The creature chasing everyone…pretty simple and to the point. It got the job done. It kind of reminded me of creature in ALIEN. 

All of the characters were believable. I soooo wanted the doctor in this movie dead within the first 10 minutes. (lol) The violence was cool. 

Now lets get to the stuff I hated. The main girl Tank (played by Nicole Alonso) – her having to CRAWL through all these freaking tunnels. FUKKKKKK!! That drove me fuking crazy!! See – I have a thing for heights and being in tight places. Yeah. I don’t like that shit. (lol) CRAWL OR DIE played with my emotions. The more I watched – I was like “No way. She’s going in there?!” and to avoid being killed…Tank has to crawl through tunnels – just when you think she’s hit a dead end – HELLL NOOOO – she keeps crawling and crawling!! FUKKKK!! So when I say I ‘hated’ it – I don’t mean the movie itself but what those bastards put me through. (lol) The title of this movie is exactly what it’s all about…CRAWL. OR. DIE.

Crawl or Die 

I give CRAWL OR DIE… 3 1/2 out of 5 popcorns! If you’re a fan of strong chicks with a nice booty, movies like ALIEN and THE DECENT…CRAWL OF DIE is definitely for you.

Oh…and make sure you watch the outtakes – pretty funny.

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
