    Ally Farson

    Ok, so i just checked out the two films of Ally Farson, "My Private Life" and "On the Run". Both films are low budget, shot on video in the same vein as Blair Witch and August Underground. This film deals with an alleged filmmaker and serial killer. Supposedly this video was sent to a studio as "evidence" of her war path.

    As a film I found this the more boring and stupidest thing committed to video. This person who calls herself Ally Farson is more insane than killer. Her killings are out of context and show no motivation. There is no psychology, gore or sex (not even a bare shoulder for that matter). Three factors missing in any decent horror movie.

    There is a website www.allyfarson.com, which claims there is a worldwide manhunt for her, but I do not believe for a minute any of this is true. Perhaps this has been debunked long ago, or its so preposterous that no one even gave it a second thought to think its real. In the end, what she purports to be a filmmaker, which she does horribly, and a killer, which she also does horribly.

    Has anyone else seen this? If you have seen it, my condolences. If not, I recommend you steer clear.

    This fake Snuff/serial killer found tapes seems to have replaced the zombie and lesbian vampire as the movie of choice for those who want to make a quick no budget horror movie. I really like the August Underground movies but they have had the misfortune of spawning the rip-offs and retreads where people think all they need to do is pick up a camera and shoot random stuff of people acting crazy and it makes a movie. The worst I've seen was Amateur Porn Star Killer which was a complete waste of time. This sounds just about as bad.

    But its funny that these "filmmakers" always seem to know how to put together great websites...

    Andy, very true. Their websites outdo the films. But that is also riding the coat tails of Blair Witch, who in my opinion did an awesome job in marketing the film. August Underground I actually like. For a low budget film, it is incredibly disturbing, but not always exciting or interesting.

    Amateur Porn Star Killer was equally boring, but at least there was gore and sex in the film. Porn Star Killer 2 features explicit sex, which, in my opinion overrode the killing part and threw the whole thing off balance. As a porn, its ok, as a horror movie its boring. I think of it as a Bang Bus meets August Underground.
