SEVERED LIMBS 7

OCTOBER 29, 2021 | By VHS
On October 24th the “Without Your Head Podcast” presented their 7th short film festival and what a festival it was! With 26 ghoulish horror shorts featuring filmmakers from all over the world it was hard for me to make my list of favorites. Before we jump into the list, I would like to applaud Neal over at Without Your Head for putting together the festival. We need more people in the community to provide a place for indie filmmakers to showcase their hard work and Without Your Head has always been a champion of underground film. Now here let’s get into New Village Video’s top 3 films from “Severed Limbs 7”....

THE CHUCKY SERIES

I first heard of Don Mancini’s “Chucky” series back in 2018 when Don posted a gif on twitter. Though the shows confirmation came a year later and was thick with controversy. That is because the reboot of “Child’s Play” was announced around the same time. Only it didn’t involve Mancini (the creator) or Brad Dourif (the longtime voice of Chucky). Instead, the studio did what they always do and replace everything. They don’t do remakes in Hollywood, instead....

MAN ARMED WITH CROSSBOW

While looking for new videos to share I stumbled upon this shocking clip of a deranged man armed with a crossbow. At first, I thought it was fake. I thought this for two reasons, number 1: it didn’t have any views, and number 2: the man recording the video is fairly relaxed. After doing some research I found that it is absolutely real. This makes this video one of the most chilling clips....

A MODEL OF OBEDIENCE

Education is strange territory nowadays. Some of us wonder: how did we get here? Who the hell is responsible for this failing system? Here in the United States, our education model was carefully birthed in the 19th Century by philosophers and politicians. Horace Mann brought us this model with the introduction of: THE PRUSSIAN MODEL OF OBEDIENCE....

WHO IS MATTHEW EDWARD HALL?

Who the hell is Matthew Edward Hall? I started to dig and what I discovered was more confusing than the email. Starting with a google search I found that Matthew Edward Hall is a singer/songwriter. His music is widely distributed on every platform from Apple Music to Spotify. He has even played shows with famous acts like...

EMOTIONAL MASTURBATION

Are you or someone you know an Emotional Masturbator? Emotional Masturbation is when you watch videos with the sole intent of feeling an extreme emotion. The Emotional Masturbator has no intention of being entertained, all they want is that sweet emotional release. Some like to cry where others like...

AMAZON BUYS MGM

As if going to space and force feeding us bullshit wasn’t enough Amazon has now purchased one of the most iconic names in cinema, MGM. 8.5 billion dollars is what it cost to own the 4,000 films and 17,000 television shows in the MGM catalog. What does this mean for the future of film? Remakes of course.

NEW VILLAGE VIDEO LAUNCH

Well, it took over a damn year, but New Village Video is officially launched. Creating a website from scratch was not easy, especially since I had no real coding knowledge. First, I had to learn 3 coding languages and if it wasn’t for the unusual circumstances we all found ourselves in last year, I would have never done it...

YOU REALLY WANT TO BELIEVE?

Dr. Steve Greer is one of the most respected voices in the UFO community. In 2001 Dr. Greer brought together 20 senior military and aerospace whistleblowers at the national press club in Washington, DC. This press conference changed the way the world looks at the subject of UFOs and launched what is now known as “The Disclosure Project”. The projects’ goal is to end UFO secrecy and...

PUMPKIN

A Movie called Pumpkin from 2002 starring Christina Ricci and Hank Harris. THIS ISN'T A COMEDY. Hank Harris plays a decently mentally and physically handicapped guy in a wheelchair. Ricci plays some kind of super smart but really petty college sorority bitch who takes pity in Pumpkin which is the name of the character played by Harris. Ricci sets him up on a date with a fat girl who likes poetry and it's meant to be sincere, but everyone gets mad because she's fat and he's handicapped....
