Is your summer long and hot? Desktop looking a bit sad? Do the photos in your computer just lay there lacking definition and clarity? Time to clear things up on your independent home for film exclusives on the web Dan's Movie Report!
As a supporter of fantastic and creative stunt people, I feel that it is cool to show the sultry side of action and prove that stunt people are not just about taking hard falls, full of rough and tumble bruises and sweat. Thanks to all off the photographers who have provided material exclusive for Dan's Movie Report!

With the recent rise of 'combo films' such 'Sharknado', 'Sharktopus', and the laughable 'Snakes on a Plane' it seems like the new cool thing to do is combine the scary monsters together. 'Lake Placid' and 'Anaconda' are two franchises that seem to have more lives than a cat and perhaps it does make sense, that they merge and become one.
The film opens in a portable research facility, where crocs and snake DNA are combined, to form an apex animal, for the protected reserve. Things get crazy when Robert Englund as the aptly named 'Bickerman' character is getting antsy and wants his money so he can leave the protected facility.
Husky voiced Yancy Butler reprises her role from 'Lake Placid 3', and Lake placid: The Final Chapter' as the hard nosed, and wonderfully sarcastic sheriff 'Reba' Corin Nemic, plays 'Tull' a game warden who is also helping and searching for his daughter.
Rather than going into a 1,000 word soliloquy with regards to 'Lake Placid vs Anaconda' the main premise is these creatures are being bred for profit, by a crazy lady who will stop at nothing to see them complete the egg laying cycle.
The side plots, are mostty throwaway, as the body count rises, all due to crocs or snakes of course. Of course, there is the obliigatory nudity, but what would an b movie be without it! I did notice that the film was shot in Bulgaria, must be a new hotbed for anacondas and crocs! HAHA!
Sadly the acting is rather wooden and at times the things that happen in the film are weird, such as a full sized jeep being crushed by one of the snakes. I know it is a comedy/horror, but there was just not enough of either to keep the film flowing. Robert England's character was kind of cool, but he did a disappearing act in the middle. I wanted to like the film, and Yancy seemed to try hard, but a combination of the source material, oddly un- frightening CGI and wooden acting, I give the film a cautious rent only and rate it a 4.5 out of 10

For more than 15 years film maven Jeff Centauri has been creating specialty short films that feature lovely ladies in action. He has a unique eye for talent and beauty, 'Assassin Interrogation' is no exception, as Jeff takes on the director of photography role, and action man Sonny Sison, directs and fight choreographs.
This marks Tae Kwon Do expert Andrea Abdon's (AKA Gumi Ho) first ever appearance in front of the camera. Andrea has been training for a few years and is ready to take the next step. The 3 minute film shows Andrea being broken down and then interrogated by her captors. They water torture her, and soon find out that she is way the hell more than they bargained for even strapped to a chair.
Andrea has a natural presence about her. fun and spunky with a side of roughness. Soon she fights back on her kidnappers and begins to dish out some wicked punishment. Kicks and punches are flying.
The film is well shot and edited, the swinging light adds ethereal effects of a dizzy action sequence and the madness of the fight. Once again, kudos to Jeff with regards to improvising, and creatie photography. and of course to Sonny for some very cool choreography.
Overall looking forward to checking out more material from Jeff, Sonny, and the adorable Andrea.
The film is on Youtube in 1080p resolution! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GbbJ36ttn7M
