Grisse (TV Series 2018) Review (C) 2019 Dan's Movie Report (Exclusive photos!)

Greetings valued Dan's Movie Report readers. Today is a binge worthy day! Yes, finally the long road from production, to HBO Asia release in November, to March 6th has arrived! At only 8 episodes, Grisse run time felt exactly right, longer than a 4 or 6 episode season, without the padding needed to cover an entire 13 hour story arc. The fictional town of Grisse, is controlled by a tyrant of a Governor. The Dutch controlled town is full of a rag tag band of locals, farmers, many of whom are too poor to know any better. They begin to rise up following a brutal execution of townsfolk. While the plot seems a bit basic the story unfolds colorfully and in detail. This is a western, yes a good old fashion king, rough housing shoot-em-up! The fact that Grisse was shot in Asia, is so cool, because of the merging of East and Western cultures, results in a dramatic flair for action! A big cast, which is a huge change from the old “Spaghetti” westerns made famous in the 1960s where essentially a lone gunman had to fight a band of outlaws. Grisse expands upon this what if the entire town was made up of basically downtrodden outlaws and the leaders were already in place, not a hero, a band of bandits but real life governmental tyranny!

I do not like spoiler reviews and to be quite honest, the show unfolds like a series of movies all tied together, episodes are sometimes over one hour long, and each merges to the next to tell the complete story. I had the wonderful opportunity to do a detailed interview with Tony Tilse, who directed 6 of the episodes and he speaks on location shooting and how he was approached to direct.

Another ass kicking haha photo! Kelly Tandiono on the set of Grisse!

The cast is just great, no one steals the show, which is a very important aspect of Grisse. The character development is strong, for example an older lady in town, short and what seems to be unassuming at first becomes a central strong character, again no spoilers. Plus the women get in on the action, because they have to to survive, desperate times call for desperate measures! Speaking of bad ass strong Grisse women I had the opportunity to interview the incredibly talented Kelly Tandiono who portrays Hidayat, a strong woman almost an androgynous character, I must say her presence in the production is really refreshing, she is a full sized lady who can kick ass, and show emotion. Check out our detailed interview:

Overall this is a great product for HBO Asia, and hopefully the series will be allowed to have a second season and more productions in Asia will come to the U.S. In the future. Grisse is a western made in Indonesia which deserves a home in the U.S.A.! The talented cast and crew should be celebrated, Grisse rates a very strong 8.5 out of 10, truly a must own, I do home it comes to home Blu-Ray with special features! Incidentally a very cool behind the scenes video exists which details the characters:

Also actress Kelly Tandiono has exclusive behind the scenes video of her training and on the set of the show!

Watch for more from the cast and crew of Grisse, coming later in 2019, on Dan's Movie Report, all exclusive all the time, and

Red Room (2017) Movie Review

Above: Poster for Red Room, used for promotional purposes only. Copyright 2019, Breaking Glass Pictures.

Greetings valued Dan's Movie Report readers and perhaps new readers who came aboard for this horror review! Red Room is a hard boot to the gut in terms of horror. This ultra low slasher/captive film is a slow burn of torture and death. A wealthy couple hires a group of thugs to abduct young girls and hold them captive, torturing them, while others pay to watch on a close video feed.

Simple plot yet, Red Room channels an inner Dario Argento with imagery and atmosphere. The first part of the movie sets the stage, as the girls are abducted, this is a personal nightmare, time is taken to learn a bit about each young lady, prior to the madness beginning.

Truculent and vituperative, Red Room, is the horrible guilty pleasure sure to delight fans of extreme films. A word of caution, Red Room is such a violent and sexual film, honestly I cannot imagine that it would ever be appropriate for anyone under 18, the “torture porn” genre is carried out, but with a sordid story and many twists and turns near the end.

Red Room rates a bloody and harrowing experience, a 7 out of 10. The film releases on DVD and streaming platforms March 19th, 2019 Please visit
