Ok, here’s the thing. I took the time out to review the film Stockholm Syndrome for the production company 4th Floor Pictures. I gave it a bad review because I thought it was a bad movie. I did, indeed, trash it. That’s what I do whenever I see a film that has no artistic merit whatsoever. It wasn’t even “bad funny.” It was just bad. When I mentioned in the review that the writer/director began his production company at the age of 18, I can only surmize that this was maybe, at most, 2 years ago, because the guy and his cronies still behave as if they were children. Since I posted the review, I have received countless harrassing posts and comments attacking my credibility. Instead of brushing the review off as simply another bad review on the pile, as any professional would have, the entire team of 4th Floor continues to post a barrage of negative comments directed at ME PERSONALLY. It’s a MOVIE. It’s a BAD movie. Get over yourselves. Go attack the reviewers of Deadpit.com too and everyone else who gave it a bad review. I’m sorry, but you can’t just make poorly done shit and expect anyone other than your friends to fall all over themselves with praise for it. That’s not the way things work.
As far as my not knowing anything about independent filmmaking, you’re sadly mistaken, guys. There are plenty of independent filmmakers out there with, what’s that word…oh yes, talent, who MacGyver together great works of art on a shoestring and a dime. They understand concepts such as pacing, storytelling, editing, sound design, art design, acting, cinematography and the like and they use their talent to piece together wonderful creations. You didn’t. I agree that independent horror filmmaking is the best horror filmmaking, but not ALL of it. You made a bad movie, you got a bad review from a website. Boo Hoo. You asked me review it and that’s what I did. As far as the comment the writer/director made to me about doing it all to get a free DVD, I’d gladly give it back. It’s just a shoddy DVR anyway with no intrinsic value either with the film nor in regard to the media itself.
Keep making movies if that’s what you want to do. I have no desire to review anything you ever make again as it will more than likely be on the same level of utter garbage as Stockholm Syndrome and you have all proven yourselves to be less than professional. Your company epitomizes every aspect of unprofessionalism that is so often unfairly attributed to independent filmmakers. You have singlehandedly destroyed any shred of credibility you ever had, at least with this site and this fan. This may not matter to you, that’s fine, but if you continue to behave in this way with every company that gives you a negative response, you will fail to go any further in this business. Not that this would be a bad thing. The less horror fans have to put up with your type of shoddy, untalented filmmaking, the better for us all.
We’re done with you and your associates. Any more attempts made to contact myself or this site will be considered harrassment and will be dealt with accordingly. It’s time we both move on.
