This episode of the SliceCast features the OG Slicer, Nic White of CinemaSlice, chatting about the awesome event that was this month’s inaugural Slice of Fright Fest. We chat about some of the great films, the filming of his latest project, and some news about upcoming episodes of the podcast.
It’s time to introduce another Slicer to the world! It’s our pleasure to continue working with the uber-talented Marvin Maddicks, Jr! Marvin is an illustrator and musician, and has create CinemaSliceComic Books, Audio Compilations, and film scores for CinemaSlice films!
The last year or so has produced numerous awesome collaborations opportunities– and the future will doubtlessly only bring more quality projects!
It’s my pleasure to introduce the super talented, Justin Harlan. Justin is the resident podcaster for CinemaSlice, but he’s also very active in the indy film community, running multiple website in support of independent cinema!
Justin has been running websites since his first Geocities site in 1994, but only did he ever start covering anything of substance years later. After he stopped regularly running local concerts in Northern NJ and the greater Philly area, he knew he needed to step up his writing game if he expected to continue to get free music to listen to. Writing about music lead to writing more about film… then podcasting… and now just being an unapologetic genre film obsessed nerd.
He writes regularly at the site he runs, The Farsighted, and Cinapse, as well as on occasion at Cinepunx. He’s back writing more about music with Rock on Philly, too. He previously wrote for several other sites (Decapolis, Crap Filter, Yule Blog), but he forgets some of them and others no longer exist.
Here on CinemaSlice, he is working on a collaborative film and music podcast called SliceCast. (Check out the SliceCast at CinemaSlice.com/SliceCast or on iTunes ). He aims to release 1-2 episodes per month, but isn’t always super successful with that goal. Doing 3 million things, which includes raising two crazy young boys and balancing all that work/life stuff, can sometimes create speedbumps. Please don’t be mad at him.
And, he’d be remiss if he forgot to say… FLY EAGLES FLY!
Mark Kelly here and I’m back with another Reel Review. I’ll be reviewing the crime documentary The Monster with 21 Faces (かい人21面相) , directed by MichaelWelborn. The film recently had its world premiere at CinemaSlice.coms A Slice of Fright film festival. The movie is part one of an in depth look at the real life incidents surrounding a wealthy Japanese businessman. It details the attack on his career, friends, and family by an unknown assailant calling himself the monster with 21 faces.
In Japan during the spring of 1984 president of Hashiba Homegoods, Sotara Hashiba(BruceFalcon), is taking a shower at his home one evening. Unbeknownst to him, 3 individuals dressed in dark clothes and white masks have broke into his residence. They have tied up his wife and daughter and are planning to kidnap Hashiba himself. What follows is a decent into mayhem and mystery. Hashiba struggles to protect everything and everyone he holds dear against multiple unknown attacks.
I’d like to introduce everyone to Mr. Peter Paul Socha III Esq. But you can call him Pete Floyd. Pete is the kind of guy that will lovingly call you a douche nozzle on any given Sunday morning. I recently became re-acquainted with Pete, and he expressed interest in writing film reviews for CinemaSlice.com. Well, now that things have been moving, and he’s written a few review articles under his belt– I wanted to take a minute and allow Pete to introduce him self to the SlicerVerse!
This little story I’m about to share with you is a brief look into why it is I am a lover of the cinema. In no way are my opinions facts, nor do I value my opinion over anyone else’s. But I feel 30+ years of enjoying movies at home, in the theater, and even in arenas, going so far as to travel days to see a film debut in an intimate setting, that I have a slightly honed perspective. My story begins like so…
Once upon a time, I was introduced to the wonder of cinema through my parents as a form of babysitting. Plopping me down in front of the ol’ tube to keep me occupied was the first big mistake. It created a love affair that I’ve been maintaining ever since. The second mistake that my parents made was to take me to the theater every weekend. Even if it was to see the silly actioner of the day, it was still an adventure. But the third mistake was encouraging it.
My parents made sure to find ways to get me to the theater no matter what. Or at least to the local video store. (Do you even remember those?) The first film I can remember watching is “The Longest Day“. Considered one of the “great war epics”, the film centers around the invasion of Normandy during World War II. It’s scope and scale are something sorely lacking in Hollywood today. Although released in 1962, a comparable war film wasn’t made until “Saving Private Ryan“, at least in my opinion. I hated it. As a child, who wants to watch a boring historical war movie? I was into Transformers and G.I. Joes. But as I grew older, I came to appreciate the beauty of the movie.
Mark Kelly here and I’m back with a Reel Review of Halloween(2018). Having enjoyed the Halloween franchise over the past 40 years I was beyond excited hearing about this new installment. Taking place directly after the events of Halloween(1978) this movie opts to forgo the lore built over the years. Although I have enjoyed the previous films it was nice to see some new life breathed into the franchise. So, without further ado, onto the Reel Review of Halloween(2018).
It’s been 40 years since the murder of 4 people occurred in Haddonfield, IL on Halloween. That night the serial killer Micheal Myers was apprehended and has been held in Smith’s Grove Sanitarium ever since. Even though Micheal is in captivity this has provided little comfort for Laurie Strode. That night two of her best friends were murdered. Over the years she has become increasingly paranoid and has developed Agoraphobia. Although this has affected her family and friends it has also made her prepared for if Micheal ever escapes again.

Late in August 2018, David Waldman asked Facebook friends to state their favorite musical genres. Among the genres mentioned were: funk, contemporary jazz, swing, folk, and Motown. He set about writing a musical work with elements of all 5 suggested genres. Originally, he was going to call it “Disaster”, which he assumed would be the new genre created by this musical effort. As the piece turned out better than expected, he’s called it “A Pause in the Disaster.” See what you think, and share it if you like.
This month, it’s our pleasure to introduce the CinemaSlice collaborator, Jeremy Allen! The first CinemaSlice project Jeremy collaborated on is the episode of A Slice of Fright called, “Chivalry’s Dead“– Jeremy volunteered his audio skills, and helped to make this creepy short film sound awesome. Jeremy then took it upon his self to produce the short horror film, “America’s Next Top Serial Killer Model“. Since then, we’ve collaborated in a variety of capacities on various projects– including the award winning short film, “Par-A-Site”– and Jeremy even wrote the short film “O Tidings of Joy” that we shot at the 4th annual Black Friday filmmaking event last November!
Jeremy is a talented writer, photographer, and filmmaker– and CinemaSlice is proud to call him a Slicer! Learn more about Jeremy, straight from the horses mouth:
I was a wanna-be musician most of my life, until I had my first kid. Once he came along, I had to give up my dreams of being a rock star, and sold all of my gear. I hated not having a creative outlet, so picked-up a camera in 2004, and started taking pictures. In 2006, I started working with models, and doing horror photography.
