The Rift and Returning from the Dead - Again!: A Film Review

*full disclosure: an online screener of this film was provided by the film's publicity arm. Directed by: Dejan Zecevic Writers: Barry Keating, Milan Konjevic. Cast: Ken Foree, Katarina Cas, Monte Markham and Dragan Micanovic. With the Eastern Bloc defunct, more and more films are coming out of Eastern Europe nowadays. The Rift bills itself as Serbia's first science fiction film. But, the film sets itself amongst a number of genres. It is essentially a mystery. There are strong elements of action here, as well. When the dead come back to life, there will be gunfire, especially with longtime horror vet' Ken Foree (Dawn of the Dead, 1978) starring. The soundtrack is a bit overwhelming; it bounces between instrumentals, rock music and a few other styles. Meanwhile, the film's story covers existentialist themes. This viewer wondered if the film was trying to answer the question: what if Jesus wore a spacesuit? Overall,

Killer Mermaids DVD Review

Director: Milan Todorovic

Cast: Kristina Klebe, Franco Nero, Natalie Burn and Dragan Micanovic

Certificate: 18

Running Time: 94 min

There is a perfectly good reason why film reviews exist folks, and that is to fish out golden works of filmmaking. Like fishing, you do tend to find bits of trash like empty tins and bottles. Killer Mermaids is certainly that kind of film title (c’mon, mermaids that kill!) that hooks your attention, but turns out to be a disappointing find.

It shouldn’t be ignored that this is actually part of film history, as it is Serbia’s first-ever creature feature to be made. Director Milan Todorovic also made the first Serbian zombie film, Zone of the Dead in 2009, which did not get good reviews at the time of its release. Not the best start for Serbian film, but its an achievement nonetheless – a starting point to get better…then they made Killer Mermaids!

Nymph aka 'Killer Mermaid' (2014) review

Reviewed by Kevin Scott

MoreHorror.com

Nymph (2014)

Written by: Marko Backovic, Barry Keating, Milan Konjevic

Directed by: Milan Todorovic

Cast: Kristina Klebe (Kelly), Franco Nero (Niko), Natalie Burn (Lucy), Dragan Micanovic (Boban), Slobodan Stefanovic (Alex), Miodrag Krstovic (The Guardian), Sofija Rajovic (Yasmine)

As you can see from the very challenging names to spell in the cast, this film has an international flair. Some scenes were filmed in Montenegro and some in Serbia. As of this writing, this film is streaming on Netflix under the title “Killer Mermaid”. I tend to gravitate more towards “Nymph”, the films’ original title. It leaves a little more mystique and still lets the film hold on to that exotic flair I eluded to earlier.

If anyone remembers “She Creature”, it involved a killer mermaid as well. That’s the only other film that I know of that can be compared to this one. I liked it a lot,

While living a quiet life in Switzerland, Devereaux is ejected out of retirement for one last mission. Although the concept of the “one last mission/job” is not a new concept for Hollywood, it definitely has its place in cinema history, branching out to a wide range of reasons why our beloved characters are being pulled back into their past lives.

Exclusive Interview: Kristina Klebe Talks 'Nymph' (With New Poster)
Genre actress and fan-fave Kristina Klebe sat down with us over the weekend to talk about her role in director Milan Todorović’s upcoming "murderous mermaid" flick (and more), and since she’s all sorts of awesome, you’ll read this. Multi-talented Klebe, best known to horror audiences for her roles in Rob Zombie’s Halloween, Zack Parker’s buzzed-about Proxy and Lucien Förstner’s Bela Kiss: Prologue, added yet another notch to her genre belt last year by re-teaming with Zone of the Dead director Todorović for Nymph (a.k.a. Mamula), a feature which revolves around two young American women who go on a Mediterranean vacation, only to uncover the watery lair of a killer mermaid hidden beneath an abandoned military fortress. “Two things attracted me to Nymph,” stated Klebe of the seemingly Thale-esque project, which was penned by Barry Keating from a story by Marko Backovic, and
