What a fabulous concept and great new way to intertwine a common theme. The use of audio was superb, transitions were fluid, and the focus always maintained the direction the maker was going for. The only qualm I saw was In The Mouth of Madness needed more focus to even out the ordeal. There was a cut during the ITMOM segments that was abrupt and felt too rushed at one part. ITMOM needed more room to breathe and if another 5-10 minutes were added I'd think we'd see an even tighter film. Great job nonetheless, absolutely fun to watch. The use of the Beach Boys soundtrack made this all the more interesting and it benefited using it for transitions.
A very interesting take on 3 very different monster movies. You've made each film flow smoothly into the next, with each them reaching a climax together. I did remove one star for audio editing, due to what I feel was overusing the Beach Boys music. Otherwise, I did enjoy this edit as a late night monster flick.
This was much fun. Really cool. The cut made three crappy, boring movies into something much more than the sum of their parts. The best possible way to watch three different movies at once. I wish there were more edits like this floating around.
My expectations were pretty low with this edit taking three mediocre films and weaving them together with a cohesive narrative and making it watchable I thought couldn't be possible... but I was gladly proven wrong. JobWillins pulls off an impressive job adding much more style with the songs and editing that it really enhances the themes and narrative for all three movies. The montage sequences at the beginning and the end was also fantastic. The juggling of all three narratives was well handled though The Mist did get a bit more spotlight then the other two movies but I feel like that was the right choice as the emotional core of the movie was there. My only nitpick for this edit would be the mid credit scene where the 3 survive from Deep Rising and make it to the island- though its a doomed survival I still would've preferred for the scene to be cut and imply their doomed lives on the ship in the end montage. Overall this edit was fantastic fanmix and an easy recommend.
It almost wierd how the songs and style of Love, actually fits to these three films. The contrast of song and visuals has wierd undescribable style. I love so, so much ending and begininng montages. Overall it's really great and I really enjoyed it. It's so random idea and I have no idea why it works. I haven't seen much Fanmixes, but this is propably the best i have seen yet. It has kinda end of the year/world kinda vibe. I have two little complains, which I don't know if they are fixable. I kinda feel wierd about the dream "pig cop" sequence in In the Mouth of Madness. I get it's a fake-out scare and it's memorable scene, but it just kinda threw me of. Also I kinda miss the restaurant scene from that film, but I get why it's cut. Second and unfixable complain is camera-work in The Mist - it's completly different from those other two. A lot of shakey cam instead of slow dolly of the others. But those are just a minor complains, at the end I really love it and I would recommend it.
