Review: Old 37 Starring Kane Hodder & Bill Moseley (Available on DVD Today)

OLD-37-Movie-Poster-Art

What is better than a film that stars Kane Hodder or Bill Moseley? A film that stars both of them! The duo of horror icons play Darryl (Moseley) and his little brother Jon Roy (Hodder). Old 37 is a twisted tale that is sure make you think twice about calling 911.

Old 37 was written by Paul Travers and Joe Landes, directed by Alan Smithee. Besides Hodder and Moseley, the film stars Jake Robinson, Sascha Knopf, Olivia Alexander, Brandi Cyrus and Kenneth Simmons. 

There are not enough synonyms for “awesome” to use that would accurately convey how great this film is. It is original and chilling with a dash of comedy. For me, it brought back the Chop-Top Bill Moseley, many of the lines that he had reminded me of his lines from TCM 2 when they break into the radio station studio, I was waiting to hear “lick my plate you dog dick!“. Kane did what he does best, he destroyed people. It was a bit like watching him play a combination of Jason Voorhees and Victor Crowley, he was shy, silent and brutal. Combining Moseley’s humor with Hodder’s intensity make for the perfect storm.

Old 37 is a bit like a drama meets horror, it’s almost like watching two different films in one. More times than not, those types of films tend to fall apart and only leave the audience scratching their heads, but the different stories within Old 37 are blended perfectly to make up one awesome movie. The conflict within this film are endless, there is domestic violence, insanity, murder, revenge, betrayal, standard bitchy teenage behavior and so much more. What’s not to love?

The plot twists are insane. I saw a couple of them coming, but it was entertaining nonetheless,I enjoyed it and I am not going to hold it against the film. There were a few that did catch me of guard. Long time horror fans may see what is around the corner, but if you are newer to the genre, you are in for one twisted roller coaster ride.

The cast as a whole was phenomenal. There were veterans and some newer to the game, but everyone was so professional that it was difficult to tell the difference between them.

Final Verdict

If you are into disturbing, revenge filled films, Old 37 is perfect. I loved the film and would love to see Travers write another film and include Moseley and Hodder, his writing combined with their talent and chemistry make for one hell of an awesome horror movie. I am going to have to recommend Old 37 to everyone that I know and you should probably tell a couple friends too.

Convention Update: HorrorHound Weekend Cincinnati 2015

header

Convention season is upon us, and one of the biggest horror cons is only a couple weeks away, HorrorHound Weekend Cincinnati has had some new guest announcements, schedules are being made, ticket prices are changing and so on and so forth. So, who will be joining the ranks along with the already announced Re-Animator reunion?

Some of the new names that have been announced include Jason Mewes (Mallrats), Norman Reedus (Friday and Saturday ONLY)(The Walking Dead), Kane Hodder (Hatchet), Zach Galligan (Gremlins), Katharine Isabelle (Ginger Snaps), Jen and Sylvia Soska (American Mary), Tom Atkins (Night of the Creeps), Madison Lintz (The Walking Dead), Jason Patric (The Lost Boys), Denis O’Hare (American Horror Story), Ryan Hurst (Sons of Anarchy), Alanna Masterson (The Walking Dead), Lawrence Gilliard (The Walking Dead), Terrance Zdunich (The Devil’s Carnival) and Jesse Hutch (Freddy vs. Jason). You can find the full guest list >>HERE<<.

Unfortunately, every convention is subject to having guests cancel due to work or scheduling conflicts. There have been only two cancellations as of now for this year’s Cincinnati show, Adrienne Barbeau (The Fog) and Alex Winter (The Lost Boys).

One of my personal favorite parts of conventions, especially HorrorHound, is the awesome list of films that will be screened. This years list includes some pretty promising looking films. I have only seen one of them, The Other Side, which I reviewed. You can read that review >>HERE<<. The one that I am most excited to see is Old 37 starring Kane Hodder and Bill Moseley. I’ve heard so many great things about the film, and it is finally getting a showing and will be released on DVD later in March. See the full list of films being screened along with a bit of information on them >>HERE<<.

Panels are another reason many go to conventions. HorrorHound has an impressive guest list, so of course the list of panels is going to be just as awesome. Some of them include an Old 37 panel, American Mary panel, Guardians of the Galaxy panel, Re-Animator panel and more to be scheduled. For the full list of panels and times, visit the events section.

What fun would a horror convention be without a great list of vendors to buy some cool sh!t from? HorrorHound always has one of the largest vendor lists around, and their vendor room is a horror nerd’s Wonderland. Some of the vendors on tap for this year include Dark Sky Films, Dead Ink, Living Dead Dolls, Samhain Horror, Scarebears, Super Pumpkins, Troma and so many more. For the full list, visit the vendor section of HorrorHoundWeekend.com.

As usual, the closer you wait to the date of the convention, the higher the ticket prices will be. There are still pre-sale tickets available. Single day passes are $20, Weekend passes are $40, VIP passes are $175 and weekend passes with early entry are SOLD OUT.  Pick up your tickets now at HorrorHoundWeekend.com to avoid higher prices, sell outs and longer lines at the door.

Planning on staying a couple of days of the entire weekend? Hotels near the Sharonville Convention Center are filling up fast. You may want to get your reservations made quickly to avoid longer travel times. Here is the full list of the closest hotels.
