Ouija the Movie, meet Twisted Weekend 3

Posted: July 24, 2014 by Brett C. in News & Press

Its hard not to draw comparisons to the upcoming movie Ouija to our very own Twisted Weekend 3.

Lets start with the premise:

TW3:
Twisted Weekend 3: Slacker Holocaust begins as a simple story of a group of college friends looking to spend a weekend getting loaded. Meet Lucie, the angry artist; Violet, her goodie-goodie roommate; their gay friend, Morris; their party animal fraternity boy neighbor, Bobby; and the burnouts, Chuck and Joe. Their names may be different, but you know this group. You’ve met them, you went to college with them…hey, you may even be one of them.

Ouija:
After a friend of a theirs is brutally killed in an accident, a group of close teenage friends must confront their most evil and demonic fears when they awaken the dark powers of an ancient spirit board when attempting to contact their friend, and realize that the ouija board is not just a game; it’s real life.

Lets review the dialog:
Watch about ten seconds from each of these:

 

And of course, you can’t help but compare the movie posters:

So, what do we have, a movie made in 1996 being “rebooted” in 2014? Seem possible. A whole lot of horror genre cliches, familiar setups and lack of substance offering easy thrills for those in the mood for a jump scare? Definitely.

Picklock PosterAfter a long hiatus, Fival’s Corn Shank Productions is proud to announce the release of its newest film, Picklock.

“I am very excited to finally release my latest creation” says David C. King, the films creator. “This is the closest a film of mine has come to my initial vision. Since it is a remake of a short I made as a teen, the challenge was to illustrate my growth as a filmmaker which I think it does. While more serious in tone than previous works, the film sticks with classic FCS themes.”
