America's Best Short Horror Films?
Blood Drive 2 is a compilation of short horror films as chosen by Fangoria magazine. As you would expect with anything associated with Fangoria, there's a lot of blood and gore. The first short film, 'They All Fall Down' has pretty much the same plot as 'I Know What You Did Last Summer' and is very predictable, however the production values are amazing and it is very well shot. The second film, and my favourite, is 'The Gibbering Horror Of Howard Gormley', which was proudly shot on Super 8mm film. This was a very clever film, with excellent sense of style. It is about Howard Gormley, who finds a key while riding his bike. Howard rides into the woods and finds a seemingly deserted house. The key doesn't open the door but strange goings on happen inside the house and someone slips disturbing notes under the door. The rest of the films are pretty much forgettable. There's a decent horror/comedy involving Sex-Chat chicks, one about two very ambitious film makers who would do anything to make it in the industry, one about being fired from office work and having to stay there forever, one about an amputator in the civil war, one about a dread-locked killer and another film about having machines drain you of blood. Calling these films "America's Best Horror Films" is not entirely correct, as many of them aren't that good. A good watch for hardcore horror fans and Fangoria fans though.
