Santa Barbara Film Review: ‘Babysplitters’

Santa Barbara Film Review: ‘Babysplitters’
Good friends often split restaurant checks, but can they split child-raising duties? That’s the catchy premise of writer-director Sam Friedlander’s outrageous comedy “Babysplitters,” which earned the Panavision Spirit Award for Independent Cinema at the Santa Barbara film fest. Combining the DNA of “She’s Having a Baby” and “Indecent Proposal,” Friedlander’s audacious hook is sure to spur thought-provoking discussions about its progressive parenting ideas. The trials and travails of impending parenthood are captured through Friedlander’s highly comedic filter, giving birth to enough dazzling wit to sustain the gimmick.

Married couple Sarah (Emily Chang) and Jeff Penaras (Danny Pudi) are having trouble trying to conceive — that is, to conceive of a life as full-time parents. Jeff’s feeling the pressure of being stuck in a dead-end sales job at a startup company, and Sarah is feeling the pressure of being at the mercy of her ticking biological clock.

‘Summer Camp’ DVD Review

Stars: Diego Boneta, Alex Gonzalez, Jocelin Donahue, Maiara Walsh, Andres Velencoso | Written by Alberto Marini, Danielle Schleif | Directed by Alberto Marini

With a title like Summer Camp you’d be forgiven for thinking that this film would be yet another stalk and slash fear flick. It isn’t. Helmed by longtime Filmax producer Alberto Marini, in his directorial debut, the film follows similar story beats to some of his most well-known films including the [Rec] franchise and The Last Days.

Looking for fun times as counselors at a European summer camp for children, four Americans never suspect their first experience abroad might be their last. For the rapid-fire spread of an extreme rage-inducing infection plunges the group into a dark vortex of horror and madness catapulting them into a race against time – and each other – to find the source of the mystery contagion and make it out alive.

Summer Camp (2015)

Written by: Alberto Marini

Directed by: Alberto Marini

Cast: Diego Bonita (Will), Jocelin Donahue (Christy), Maiara Walsh (Michelle), Andrés Velencoso (Antonio)

Summer Camp can mean a lot of things. I never went because I was always afraid that the reality would forever soil my idyllic idea of camp from “Meatballs”, the Michael J. Fox TV movie “Poison Ivy”, and “Ernest Goes to Camp”, and also because I was chubby, introverted, and awkward.

Thank goodness for adulthood, at least the chubby part got a little better. Of course, I also had Friday the 13th to go by as well. It took a few installments before Jason started going after the kids, usually it was the counselors that got the business end of the machete.

At “Summer Camp”, these counselors are Americans who signed up to teach English to campers in Spain. No cabins here.

Maiara Walsh: Thank you very much! I’m glad you enjoyed it. A couple of things attracted me to the project. I had worked with producer Peter Safran before, and I trust his judgment on movie selections. I was also excited for the opportunity to play a character that must be enraged and deranged for a good portion of the film.

The film is currently having a successful run at film festivals worldwide and our four star review is available to read here…

David Opie: Summer Camp is an extremely enjoyable horror movie that breaks away from the traditional conventions of the ‘zombie’ genre, particularly in the way that the infection spreads. Where did the idea for this come from?

Alberto Marini: Co-writer Danielle Schleif and I just merged the mythology of our two favourite fantastic creatures: infected people and werewolves. Despite their appearance, in reality, those creatures are actually quite similar. Both of them deal with controlling our natural instincts.

In both cases, we start with “normal” human beings who lose all inhibitions and unleash their inner animals, whether that

Biff 2015 Movie Review – Summer Camp (2015)

Summer Camp, 2015.

Directed by Alberto Marini.

Starring Jocelin Donahue, Diego Boneta, Maiara Walsh, Andres Velencoso.

Synopsis

Four young Americans sign up to work as counsellors in a remote Spanish camp, but visions of a fun-filled summer quickly fade when one of them suddenly snaps and attacks the others. Before the group even realise what’s happening, a rage-inducing virus begins to take hold, spreading rapidly among the counsellors who must turn on one another if they have any hope of surviving the night.

The popularity of the undead has spread like a virus in recent years, but with so many zombie movies out there, how do filmmakers keep those rotten corpses fresh for public consumption? For decades, zombie films stuck to the tried and tested formula of George A. Romero’s iconic shambling hordes, but these days, we now have corpses that can run, jump and even swarm over barricades like insects.

The fifth, however, is the biggest stinker of the lot, a schmaltzy Christmas edition with a new kid, new family and new goons. Also, Malcolm McDowell - of Clockwork Orange fame - is in it,

Hello Maiara,

First let me start by saying thank you for taking the time to answer a few questions, and that I really was impressed by your performance in VANish (review). I thought it was absolutely great.

I've got a questions pertaining to both you, as an actress, and to the film itself, so I will try to alternate them for the most part.

VANish (2015) review

By Robert Thompson

MoreHorror.com

What do you get when you mix part action flick, part horror flick, part thriller, and part buddy comedy/road trip movie? Probably something fairly close to VANish. After getting to enjoy Dark Sky Film's most recent release, “Starry Eyes”, for review, I was in no way going to turn down the chance to enjoy their next one.

So, the story set up is this: Jack (Austin Abke), and Max (Bryan Bockbrader, who also writes, and directs) are buddies that decide to kidnap Emma (Maiara Walsh), and hold her ransom, wanting five million bucks from her father (Danny Trejo). Along the way they get help from Afghanistan Vet Shane (Adam Guthrie). However, as the story progresses, we learn that not everyone on this little road trip from hell are who they say they are.

That's basically all I want to give away, as I really enjoyed the flick,
