The Thirteenth Floor

On the 13th floor of a super hi-tech software company, experiments in cyber reality are taking place — with nutty results. Downloading their consciousness into pre-determined templates, the geniuses behind this ground-breaking project “transport” themselves back to cyber L.A., circa 1937. (Beer, it should be noted, can do much the same thing, without all the wires and modems.)

The Thirteenth Floof

Things go topsy turvy as the “people” in the alternate world begin to discover they’re not real — and dang it, are quite upset. Where this potboiler gets moving is when the computer guys find out they’re pretty much in the same pile ’o crap; Their world is fake, too!

The Thirteenth Floor

Nice Back to the Future (1985) twists and turns in The Thirteenth Floor (1999), though you have to pay attention or you’ll end up wondering where the heck you are. Note of importance: The chick in this movie is very hot and she has sex with the main guy, but they don’t show her cyber tush. Post-Reagan science fiction is so prudish.

Mouth Full of Hell

Hellmouth

Hellmouth, a highly stylized horror flick starring genre legend Stephen McHattie, came out in late 2014. I did not see it as I was busy combing my hair. Now, thanks to technology (magic with lab coats), you, me and anyone with access to the Internet can now download and – get this – watch it whenever you want! Man, the future kicks ass!

Hellmouth

I’ve seen the trailers; Visually, Hellmouth looks very Sin City-ish. Very cool. And the plot, while borrowing the one sentence description of What Dreams May Come (1998), has drool-worthy implications: “A grave-keeper is drawn into a Hell dimension to save the soul of a beautiful woman.” I wonder what  one wears when in Hell. Probably some sort of blackness.

Hellmouth is said to be a throwback to the genre films of the ’50s and is story-driven with fantasy and horror combined. I find this to also be very cool. However, I do hope the movie reveals directions to Hell. I have a vacation coming up and that seems like a nice place to hang out.
