The Vern is in love with The Love Witch & Frankenstein Created Bikers Trailers

 

Hello Boys and Girls.

Red band trailer

Most of you are getting mighty sick of seeing trailers because they are all the same.  They all feature the same tropes and reveal the entire plot with spoilers included too.  Well the art of great trailer making is not lost on these two great films I present to you.

The Love Witch.

When you are watching a movie that is set in a particular era.  It still feels modern.  There are a few movies that were made recently that made it look like it was from that time.  House of The Devil is one that comes to mind and so is Far From Heaven.  Both of those movies were made to look like they were made in the 80’s and 50’s but were actually made in 2000’s. The Love Witch by director Anna Biller does the same thing and brings us a movie that looks like it came from the late 60’s, but it is not set in that time.  It does feature the clothes, hair and cars of that era, but also modern devices like cell phones and computers as well.  This makes the movie appear almost timeless like it really could be told in any decade and have the same results.  I know this is an odd thing to compare to but it reminds me of how Requiem for a Dream or It Follows also feel kind of out of time.  You really don’t know for sure what decade either of those are set in.  Samantha Robinson looks amazing as our love lorn witch and I can’t wait to watch this on a big screen if I can.

 

Frankenstein Created Bikers

FCBposterGuns, hot women, motorcycles, violence, hot women on motorcycles, and nudity.  Yes, this trailer has it all.  From the poster alone this looks like a bad ass movie that would be a hell of a lot of  fun to watch with a group of my friends on a late Saturday night.  Director James Anthony Bickert has created a film that is a loving homage to early exploitation and biker movies of the late 60’s and early 70’s.  Most people just assume that when they hear the word exploitation, it’s just an excuse to show naked women on screen.  They forget that many of the women characters in these films are a lot stronger then the male ones.  I’m reminded of Pam Grier in Foxy Brown or recently Salma Hayek in Everly.  Both of these women were beautiful and are not ashamed of their sex appeal.  Same thing can be said for Tristan Risk who looks amazingly hot with her eye patch and all black outfit.  She’s like a sexy Snake Plissken and he was already pretty hot.  I have no clue what this movie is about, but I don’t need to.  The trailer alone sells me on all the great things I want to see in this.  You may be asking yourself.  Is this a horror movie, because you see gore.  Is it an action movie because of all the fight scenes.  It may be both, but it also looks like one great action film that demands to be seen on the big screen.

Frankenstein Created Bikers also features Laurence R. Harvey(The Human Centipede 2) and Ellie Church(Harvest Lake)

I love movies and I enjoy writing about them too. They both go pretty much hand in hand with each other and it's fun to discover new classics. I co host the podcast The Film Pasture and As You Watch. While also contributing reviews and articles to other great sites when I can.

    Both sound awesome! And I entirely agree about House of the Devil genuinely feeling like an older film 🙂 great write up as ever Verny 🙂

  2. The Vern says:

    Thank you Emmy. Both wre actually shot on 35mm film, which kinda feels rare in today’s digital age

    The Love Witch looks interesting, though some of the acting looks a little dodgy at points. You are spot on about its timeless looks, you see a 60’s mustang at the start, but the opening title card looks like its from the 90’s. I get what you mean about Requeim and It Follows, there is nothing to really cement them in a certain decade

    Oh the glories of 35mm.
