Watch Hi-8 (Horror Independent 8) - Alternative Versions.
A love-letter to the shot-on-video horror scene of the late 80s/early
90s, Hi-8 (Horror Independent 8) sees several pioneers of home-made
horror teaming up with some of their modern-day counterparts to bring
us a diverse anthology shot entirely on lo-fi, pre-HD formats; as such,
it's similar in vein to recent horror talent showcases V/H/S and The
ABCs of Death only filmed on a much tighter budget. Although this lack
of cash is evident throughout, a wealth of imagination and creativity
ensures that this collection of the macabre, while varyingly wildly in
quality and style, still manages to be a fair amount of fun as a whole,
the enthusiasm and energy of the film-makers shining through each and
As is customary with such films, Hi-8 opens with a wraparound story
(the appropriately named 'No Budget Films presents
'), which sees a
pair of young film-makers, Travis (Paul K.) and Brett (Baker Chase),
shooting their own horror video starring hottie Andrea (Danielle Nicole
Rosario, looking fine in Lycra running gear); this is interspersed by
eight gruesome 'shorts', each shot by a different director
In 'Switchblade Insane', directed by Tim Ritter (Killing Spree), a
loving housewife discovers her husband's dirty little secret and
decides to join in with the fun. But is everything as it really seems?
This sleazy, gory tale quickly sets the demented tone for the whole
project, offering up plenty of blood, some gratuitous nudity, and a
delightfully deviant twist.
'A Very Bad Situation', by Marcus Koch (100 Tears), sees a shower of
meteorites falling to Earth, turning people into hideous creatures. A
claustrophobic, paranoia-laced tale with decent performances and topped
off with a wonderfully yucky transformation scene, this is one of my
favourites of the whole bunch.
'The Tape', the directorial debut of visual effects artist Tony
Masiello, has VHS collector Tim (Travis Hoecker) uncover a rare SOV
horror obscurity entitled 'Bloodgasm'; becoming obsessed by the gory,
no-budget tape, he and his girlfriend set out to meet the maker of the
splattery flick, but get more than they bargain for. I enjoyed this one
for the gruesome, snuff-style, giblet-fondling effects seen in
'Bloodgasm', but the ending of the story isn't as strong as I would
'Gang Them Style', directed by Ron Bonk (City of the Vampires), is a
tongue-in-cheek homage to numerous cult movies that sees Snake
Plissken-wannabe RJ "Mongoose" MacReady (Wes Reid) attempting to save
his grandmother and her OAP pals during a zombie outbreak. With lots of
references to classic horrors and plenty of gut-munching, this is very
silly and lots of fun.
'Genre Bending' by Chris Seaver (Mulva: Zombie Ass Kicker!, Terror at
Blood Fart Lake) is definitely the strangest segment, a 'WTF?' tale of
stalking and rape-reversal that defies adequate description. Worth
watching for the leering weirdo who simply wants to know the time.
In 'The Request', by Todd Sheets (the Zombie Bloodbath trilogy),
all-night DJ Magic Matt West (Brad Westmar) receives strange phone
calls, apparently from his dead lover Lillian. Is it simply a cruel
prank, or does Lillian really have a special request for her ex? With a
solid central performance from Westmar, and oodles of atmosphere, this
one looks set to be one of the best, but is let down somewhat by its
rushed Creepshow-style/EC-inspired ending.
'Thicker Than Water', from Donald Farmer (Cannibal Hookers), sees Ted
(Mike Malloy) finding out just how insanely insecure his current
partner Emily (Alaine Huntington) is when she reveals that she has his
ex-girlfriend Lauren (Vanessa Nocera) tied to a chair in the garage.
It's a rather routine tale of torture that benefits from a strong
psychotic turn by Huntington.
The last tale is 'The Scout', helmed by Brad Sykes (who also directs
the wraparound story), which stars Mark Sadr and Alexis Codding as
low-budget film-maker Adrian and aspiring actress Madison, who break
down in the desert while scouting for locations. After an argument,
Madison storms off, but returns later to find Adrian missing. Finding
his video camera, she watches the recording, with shocking results.
This tale lacks logic, but with Codding looking great in a tight vest
and shorts, who cares?
A mixed bunch, to be sure, but there's more than enough enjoyment to be
had for those who, like me, are suckers for independent horror and
horror anthologies in general.
