The streets flow red with Vengeance in PMS COP!This is the first time I’m hearing about it, but there’s some kind of crazy genius as play by combining a pre-menstrual woman with a badge and a gun. Now, I don’t expect the women in the audience are going to be as thrilled, but something about the premise of this film had me laughing my ass off. I plan on watching the film and reviewing it for next week’s column just in time for its premiere on FullMoonStreaming.com next Friday April 4th.
The film is described as; PMS COP follows the story of police officer Mary Collins, who is informed by her commanding officer that she needs counseling, after being caught on camera brutally beating a clown rapist. Her therapist quickly concludes that she suffers from extreme PMS and enrolls her in a drug trial for the new menstrual wonder drug Corybantic. Mary responds positively until a devastating incident throws her into a monstrous drug-induced killing frenzy. Soon everyone who comes into contact with the PMS cop realizes it IS her time of the month.

New clip from MR.JONES looks promising…but still hand-held and shaky!A new found footage film that’s getting some positive buzz is MR. JONES; set to be released next month on May 6th on BluRay and DVD from Anchor Bay. The film is described as;
Scott (Jon Foster of STAY ALIVE) and Penny (Sarah Jones of “Sons Of Anarchy”) just moved to a remote cabin to escape the pressures of the world and breathe new life into their art. But they’ll soon discover they are not alone: an infamously reclusive artist – known only as ‘Mr. Jones’ – lives nearby. He doesn’t like to be disturbed, and only comes out at night when he drags his strange, sinister sculptures deep into the woods. When Scott and Penny’s curiosity leads them too close for Mr. Jones’ comfort, he plunges the young couple into a nightmare world of mayhem, madness and mind-bending terror.
MR. JONES will also have an exclusive Los Angeles limited theatrical engagement beginning May 2nd. Here’s the clip from the film!

Desperate to find her, Shawn heeds the advice of his father and seeks help in the form of Gabriel (Ray Park), a mysterious guardian. Under Gabriel’s tutelage, Shawn learns of a third race of creatures – mercurial beings known as the jinn – with the ability to selectively interfere in what we know to be real life.
