The opening film was Irish Satanic/Paranormal comedy Extra Ordinary (Yes i know it's one word but that's explained why in the film!) The film opened VHS style from Rose Dooley's Father who was a paranormal investigator who died from a tragic accident caused apparently by his guilt ridden daughter who has since dismissed anything to do with the paranormal and now runs her own driving school.
Needless to say it was hilarious. Some great special FX for a low budget film and it certainly didn't skimp on the gore level. The performances from the two main characters were spot on. The ectoplasm parts were gross but extremely funny which set up for a weekend of Mayhem Goo!Definitely one to keep your eye out for.
Next up was Daniel isn't real and you not could get more change in direction from Extra Ordinary this was certainly that!
Daniel was the imaginary friend of a young Luke (Miles Robbins) But when he makes him do something really bad his mum makes him banish him and lock him in a dolls house. Years later he returns home his mums mental state has deteriorated severely and this then leads to him releasing his imaginary friend Daniel from the dolls house with very dire consequences.
The performances were superb, Especially surprising for myself was the performance by Arnold Schwarzenegger's son Patrick Schwarzenegger, He was truly bonkers, The weird thing was that from certain angles he looked just like him and that for me made it more unsettling.
It delves into very dark areas of schizophrenia with a booming soundtrack and visuals to match.
So that was the 1st two films of mayhem 2019 done and next up was Friday with an earlier start with the very intriguing looking VIY.
