GREEN HELL: A JAY CRIMSON FILM (Now Showing!)

TUNNEL TO THE UNDERGROUND & CRIMSON’S CORONER PRESENTS

GREEN HELL: A JAY CRIMSON FILM

Ladies and Gents, we present to you GREEN HELL: A JAY CRIMSON FILM.

Two drug addicts in search of their next fix unintentionally stumble upon a strange experimental liquid that alters reality and brings the EVIL out of people.

This movie was written and directed by Tunnel to the Underground’s very own Jay Crimson (noclassjay3x) who writes Crimson’s Coroner, and was edited by me (justinthomassquires).

Jay approached me at the beginning of the summer (2013) with a movie he had filmed back in 2006 and 2007. He had a very rough edit of the movie and wanted to re edit and reshape the entire thing. After review of his rough cut I gladly jumped on board.

I began heavy post production at the end of the summer and worked into late October. After we finished post production we had three local showings where the movie was received well (Special thanks to Bryan Keefe for being our projectionist). 

Now we are happy to share this movie with the entire world.

GREEN HELL: THE ONLINE PREMIERE!

greenhell

Tunnel to the Underground and CRIMSON’S CORONER will be hosting the online premiere of GREEN HELL: A JAY CRIMSON FILM.

So what the fuck is GREEN HELL anyway?

Well, it’s a drugged out horror flick made to play like a damaged VHS tape.

Jay Crimson (who writes a column on this blog called Crimson’s Coroner) contacted me early this summer and asked me if I wanted to edit this horror film he had been sitting on since 2006-07. Upon review of his rough cut I hopped on board. We wrapped up post production by Halloween and had our first local premiere, followed by two others.

We now would like to share this thing with the world (for a moment in time at least)

Thus we will be hosting the video on youtube and letting it stream for a week.

You will be finding the main page here on the blog November 24th, and the movie will stream until the 30th.

You can join the official facebook event page HERE to keep updated. Or just keep checking back at the blog.

In the mean time. CHECK OUT THE TRAILER!

CRIMSON’S CORONER: V/H/S AND V/H/S 2

BANNER

VHS_Quad

Crimson here to let some of you in on two great finds…..V/H/S and V/H/S 2!

I heard about the first V/H/S through a Fangoria magazine and I knew I had to give it a shot. The film is done in the way of an anthology of short stories, much like Twilight Zone: The Movie, Creepshow, Tales From The Darkside…etc. One thing separates these films from the others though….the stories are all linked and shown to you through the concept of “found footage” films The Blair Witch Project made popular. This is done so much better though, in my opinion. I feel about it much like I felt about 2012’s Cabin In The Woods….so creative and original that I wish I would’ve came up with it myself.

My favorite part of V/H/S is the first short titled “Amateur Night” in which a group of buddies rent a hotel room with the hopes of bringing back some girls for an orgy. They rig a hidden camera on the nerdy friend’s glasses so they can document the events. Needless to say, it doesn’t quite turn out the way that they were planning.

vhs-image09top_20_mejores_peliculas_2012_reseña_critica_07_Tierra_Freak_Tierrafreak.com.arV/H/S debuted at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival in January 2012 and was released on demand August 31, 2012. If you can’t handle the “shaky-cam” technique, you probably will not enjoy this film. If you can put aspects of what you think you know about “found footage” films aside and give this movie a watch, you might fall in love the way I did.
945396_10151449041922322_1652299371_nWe all know how sequels can be. Some can be pretty unwatchable watered down versions of their predecessor.  I found this to NOT be the case with V/H/S 2.

V/H/S 2 is a lot like V/H/S when it comes to how the stories are told but the stories that are told are just as good, if not better than the original film. This sequel is by far more violent than the first movie. It starts up with the same flow as the original and then it smacks you with a “Safe Haven” story that has more on-screen violence then I have seen in recent history (with the exception of the newest Evil Dead). Sources say that the movie was rushed into production in late 2012 and that it was expected to be a let down and pale in comparison to the first film. I do not agree with those sources. While it may have been rushed into production, it gave me everything I love about horror…frightening images and on-screen gore!!!!!!

v-h-s-2 VHS_2_Safe_Haven_1_5_13_13V/H/S 2 also made its on-screen debut at the Sundance Film Festival in 2013…only one year later than it’s original. I couldn’t tell you at this current time which film I like best due to the fact that, for me, they both have what I like to call the “grab” factor…meaning it makes you pay attention. In which case, I would have to say these movies will be looked at differently in years down the road. If not…it is a goddamn shame that these movies will most likely not get the attention they deserve. Such is the case for 80% of the films I personally find art in. Well, enough reading my opinions about them….watch them and tell me what you think!

CRIMSON’S CORONER

BANNER

Jay Crimson speaking and this is my first entry in the Tunnel To The Underground blog titled “Crimson’s Coroner”. Tonight I would like to reach out to all of you vintage horror movie lovers out there and talk about two films I consider classics of the genre.

If you are looking for old school cinematography at its finest in Gothic macabre in the same vein as the old Universal movie monsters such as Dracula, Frankenstein or The Mummy but want an increased level of on-screen blood and gore, then have I got two gems for you!

So it was around the summer of 2007 and I was hanging out with my good friend (now fellow band mate/guitarist of No Class Assassins) Dave Kelsey and he tells me he bought a few cheap DVDs from a dollar store in town. I asked if I could take a look at them and he throws me three cheap dollar store versions of older movies, ya know the ones that have cheap cardboard cases the plastic disc just sits in? Yeah those. I decided on borrowing one titled “The Werewolf Vs The Vampire Woman.” Now I figured that this movie was just going to be a boring cheese-fest that I am used to walking right pass or pay no attention to. In my opinion, I got an underrated and overlooked classic horror movie!

“The Werewolf Vs The Vampire Woman” (1971) is about a chick named Elvira (oddly enough) that is searching for the lost tomb of Countess Wandessa in the French Countryside with the aid of her close friend Genevieve. The girls run into a man named Waldemar Daninsky, who invites the women to stay as long as they like in his castle. Waldemar knows a bit about the area and the legends of Countess Wandessa, so he decides to lend a hand and show the girls around. Little do the ladies know that Waldemar has a few skeletons in his closet too! \m/

This movie is filled with enough pentagrams, fangs, blood and boobs to make even the crookedest of pastors thrust his hips in excitement. I love this film because its retro (I’m a sucker for old school shit), its dark, creepy and is like a fine wine. Aged in excellence.

the werewolf vs vampire woman coverRewind to sometime in 2006…Me and my buddy Ninja Boy were on a mission for a copy of The Blob (1988) with my Buick Skylark on a full tank of gas. I accidentally stumbled upon a copy of “Burial Ground” AKA “Nights Of Terror”. Which looked like some sort of made-for-TV movie series VHS tape. I seen a few interesting things on the back of the box, so I decided to rent it. It turned out to be one of the most creepy and eerie ‘undead’ horror films I’ve ever watched!

HAHAHAHAHA             michaelfromburialground1              burial4

“Burial Ground” AKA “Nights Of Terror” (1981) is a movie beginning with an archeologist making a discovery in a cave, and then the trouble begins. These zombies are the creepiest I’ve seen in movie history. Literally rotting bodies! \m/ They also use tools in this film, which makes for a more interesting movie in my opinion. 7 people start searching for the missing archeologist and chaos soon begins! Muahahahahahahaha! This movie rules! It does have a intriguingly comical fucked up incest scene too, so check this baby out!

burial ground 1981 vhs front & back2I strongly suggest if you have some time to kill and you are into old school horror and arent one of those people who refuse to give them a chance simply because they are from a different era….kick back and watch these two movies.  Let me know what you think about them!
