...The Dirty Uncle Bob Show Episode 3: Inbred Redneck Vampires.
Click here for the Vid Cast.
A Euro-trash vampiress with a studly American lackey are on the run from a notorious vampire hunter, what do they do? What else? Turn a town full of piss ignorant rednecks into a horde of bloodsuckers. Sounds potentially awesome, right? There was hope.
Inbred Redneck Vampires, in actuality, was kind of a shitty handi-cam movie. The acting, lighting, and overall quality were lacking a bit. There's plenty of good boob-shots, fart jokes, and a good dose of hurr-durr Americana, but the genuinely funny stuff isn't as prevalent as the bad shit.¬
Here's the deal kids. If you wanna write a story about southerners, maybe do some research. Learn a little about the South. For sure, there are some dumb ones in the Git R Dun crowd, but it's not all Jeff Foxworthy and Deliverance. Maybe one or two caricatures, but a whole cast? It's a bit much.¬
The quality was pretty low on this feature. The crew on this one did an OK job working with obviously limited resources, but overall the film could have used a few production tricks to up the look and feel. It's wrought with video noise from low light and it looks like the used a few different cameras, of varying quality, on the production. Some shots look great, nice and sharp and noiseless, others look like a shitty handi-cam. The film, itself, is presented letterboxed and stereo.
Lot's of fun shit on this end. Although not the prettiest, flashiest authoring job, there's loads of trailers, and bonus goodies from the movie. The blooper real is a blast, if you're into that kind of thing.
All in all, Inbred Redneck Vampires is a fun movie, but a little tough to watch if your not used to trailer-park indie filmmaking styles. It's pretty obvious by watching the film that it was a shitload of fun to make, but, sadly, not as fun to watch. I do hope they give it another go and give us something a little more polished.
