‘Wonder Woman’ Short Film Raises Some Important Questions

Fans of Wonder Woman have no doubt seen the most recent fan-made short/trailer, depicting the Amazonian princess taking on Nazis during World War II. Filmed as a showcase for the directorial skills of stuntmant-turned-director Jesse V. Johnson (The Package) – and Not a Ww movie – the trailer features Nina Bergman (The Wayshower) as the titular superheroine.

While viewers have been largely polarized over the short, we’re more interested in the questions this live-action take on Wonder Woman raises. And perhaps more importantly, which ones it answers.

As far as fan-made films go, the production value and actors are easy to appreciate, and far better than these kinds of projects generally sport.

Kurt Oldman on Board to Score Killer Holiday

Business is moving forward for Killer Holiday with the addition of a new well traveled horror musical score writer. Kurt Oldman will join the project and will set the ambiance with his musical talents.

Directed by Marty Thomas, Killer Holiday promises to introduce viewers to a new face of fear in Melvin "Spider" Holiday (Michael Copon), a predator who stalks the roads and leads his victims into a creepy abandon amusement park. (Personally I've never come across an abandon amusement park in my travels. But if I ever happen upon one, you can bet your sweet ass the last thing I'm going to do is go poking around in there.)

In addition to Copon, Killer Holiday stars Rachel Lara, Alex Mandel (Do you think he can blow up a rubber glove and slide it on his head like his old man? Those were the days!) and Rachel Wixom.

You'll Get More Than Kicks on Route 66 in Killer Holiday

Ah, spring break. The parties, the raging alcohol consumption, the glistening hardbodies, the carefree sexual experiences. Such a shame that this annual reincarnation of Sodom has to so frequently be the backdrop for slasher film carnage. Can't we just let the girls wiggle around in their skimpy bikinis? Is all the filleting of young flesh really necessary?

In the new film Killer Holiday someone thinks it is. And that someone is the newest slasher on the block, Melvyn "Spider" Holiday (Killer Holiday, get it?), played by Michael Copon. He tracks his prey along Route 66, eventually following them to an abandoned amusement park (Come on victims, an abandoned amusement park? You're just begging for it! Didn't you see Funhouse?) where all sorts of nastiness is promised.

Killer Holiday is the first film in what is hoped to be a new horror franchise from Ridiculous Pictures with an expected 2012 premiere.
