When I first read about Turbo Kid my expectations for it were high - an 80's throwback with elements of Mad Max and the wonderful Michael Ironside as the bad guy - how could it fail? Whilst I wasn't disappointed by the end product I did feel that it fell between two stools never knowing if it should be a flick aimed at kids or one aimed at a more adult audience, the welcome excessive gore alienating an audience that would enjoy it's lighter fluffier side more. It probably didn't help matters that Turbo Kid was directed by not one, but three people - François Simard, Anouk Whissell, Yoann-Karl Whissell. This may account for the mixed ideology in terms of whom the finished film would best play to.
We Are Still Here is set in 1979 and focuses on middle-aged married couple Anne (Barbara Crampton, Re-Animator and From Beyond) and Paul Sacchetti (Andrew Sensenig). Following the death of their son Bobby in a car accident they have decided to move home to New England hoping that in doing so they will find some closure. No sooner have they started settling in than spooky things start happening leading Anne to believe that their son's spirit is with them.
Paul is sceptical so Anne calls up her friend May Lewis (Lisa Marie, Burton's Sleepy Hollow) hoping that May's psychic abilities will enable contact with her son. May arrives, bringing her hippie husband Jacob (Larry Fessenden) with her. By now Anne and Paul have met their neighbours who bring nothing but grim news as they hint at the darkness that has occurred in the house prior. Anne and Paul are definitely not alone. Their home is also home to a family of vengeful spirits looking to drag their souls to Hell with them.
Sarah Lind stars as Molly Hartley. Molly has just turned twenty-four years of age and is having a drink with friends, also celebrating becoming a partner at the financial firm she works at. Against her friend's advice Molly decides to continue partying into the night inviting a buff gentleman and an up-for-it party girl back to her's for a threesome.
The next morning Molly is awoken by a couple of police officers following up on complaints of noise from her apartment the night before. Molly is now hearing sounds that are unheard to others. She also has a couple of dead people in her bath tub which the female police officer discovers without feeling the need for a search warrant. One arrest later and Molly is incarcerated in a mental home which just happens to be the very same that disgraced Father John Barrow (Devon Sawa, Final Destination) has been placed following a botched exorcism.
The infamous bloodsucker is back and ready to suck on four English travellers – two brothers and their wives - that are frankly begging to be just another Dracula statistic. Unfortunately for the viewer, help comes in the shape of the bulky and antagonistic Father Sandor and soon a race is on to prevent old pointy teeth from sinking into the tender neck of drippy Diana Kent, whose husband is spookily called Charles!
In a marketplace saturated by needless sequels and prequels it still comes as a shock to realize that this is not actually a recent phenomena and that in fact dismal sequels and quick cash-ins have always had a place in film production house's hearts. Hammer's Dracula: Prince of Darkness is one such early template finding a desperate means in which to resurrect the main man after being polished off by Peter Cushing's Van Helsing many years before, then have him play support to a lot of daft characters who run around and do things that frankly only people with the I.Q. of the average Big Brother contestant would ever consider a sound idea.
