Here's the ever-ambitious, pretentiously-overreaching Sir Peter Weyland (Guy Pearce) of Weyland Industries.  (Of course, he's a billionaire business man, as well.)  He's stirred up a hornet's nest of controversy, since his announcement of plans to build the first humanoid robotic system, indistinguishable from a real human.  Yes, the time has come, and even people in the year 2023 aren't ready for it.

Sir Peter challenges ethical boundaries and the Vatican, with pride and determination, while always following his motto, “If we can, we must.”  After a three years of media blackout, Weyland has finally taken the stage to reveal his plans to proceed.  With Sir Peter's attitude here, it's easy to see the origin of the famous line I must repeat again: “Bring back life form. Priority One. All other priorities rescinded.”

Check out Sir Peter's crowd-shocking announcement below, and weigh in on the debate.  Everyone's sure to have an opinion on this one.  If only everyone knew what greater things there are to worry about!

After the video, check out  There’s a lot of interesting stuff over there!  Enjoy

Oh, and don't forget to secure those PROMETHEUS tickets in advance! This is sure to be a journey you won't want to miss!

"One of my ultimate goals is to create different types of horror films that everyone sees, hopefully allowing millions of people to review my films!" ~ Zena

For the few of you who don't yet know "Lovely Zena," let me introduce you.  She is, indeed, (true to her name) the essence of "lovely," being a "Real Queen of Horror" as well! Zena's an ever-alluring blue-blooded beauty and royal reviewer fit for the court of any king. She tells it like it is, reviewing cinema that chills and kills with wit and charm, warming your heart, before she takes it from you. Yes, no horror fan's heart is safe from Zena! Just when you thought nothing could be better, there's more! Zena does it all in sumptuous styles and frightful fashions.

“… I LOVE HORROR! If horror was a person, I would so be its friend.” ~ Zena

When it comes to beauty and horror, Zena blends the two to make them one, in a style that's all her own.  "Under my manicured brows," she says, "my eyes have matured in observing the beauty in everything, even in the most HIDEOUS."

Watch Zena's video below (Too Fast Clothing), and you'll see new meaning to "stealing one's heart" in style.  The fusion of beauty and horror here is seamless!  (Those spine-pattern high heels with the zombie handbag are just perfect, surely looking no better on anyone than Zena!)  From the fate of the guy in the car, I think he'd agree!

"Oh là là!" as the French would say.  The way Zena reviews that handbag and set of spined heels makes me almost wish (just for a moment at least) that I was a girl myself, able to enjoy it all as much--that is until I realize it's better being a guy dazzled by Zena's presence as "The Queen."

“My mother reared me from the womb on dairy and horror, both of which I still hold dear to my heart.” ~ Zena
Okay, with Zena being The Real Queen of Horror, one viewing of her is never enough. To sit in her court is to be addicted.  So, here's another of Zena's videos not to miss; in this one, she's giving an honest, tell-it-like-it-is review of Fright Night. Trust me!  The heart will not beat to overheat, before she finishes and claims it for her own. Enjoy it while you can!

I guess I'd better stop right here, while I still have my heart.  It skipped a beat several times, while writing this review.  Luck can't last long with Zena on the screen. In this kingdom, she's the queen! :)

"Originality is a dying art that needs to be revived I am, the Real Queen of Horror. ♛" ~ Zena

“I write horror. So far, I’ve only killed with words.” ~ Jill Kill

Jill Kill is a high-class horror hottie to die for, for sure! She’s a gothic gal, with haute couture style to spare and more accents than a vampire who’s lived in every country for eternity. What’s better is that this carnal cutie is also one rocket-fueled reviewer of cosmic cinema! What better combination of beauty and brains exists in the time/space continuum than Jill? “None,” I say! What better video of Jill is there to start with than one featuring her dressed as Death–the character from the Neil Gaiman Sandman comics. “None,” I say again! Oh, and that British accent; it packs enough fuel to power our sun another 10 billion years–at least!  Yes, Jill is a sultry, raven-haired siren who can melt a man faster than a Buck Rogers ray gun on full power!  Watch Jill below, and you’ll see what I mean; she’s reviewing The Thing (1982).  A horror hottie reviewing a hot horror film is a combo not to be missed by any fan, for sure!  Enjoy! (Trust me, it’s effortless!)

One dose of Jill Kill is never enough for me, so let’s do another! (What a beauty she is!) In the next video, Jill shows off her natural good looks, out of her comic-book-character costume, at the premiere of the Filipino horror movie The Road. Jill talks about a number of other things, including her own Filipino heritage. This time, she even talks with an equally seductive Filipino accent! Yes, Jill is hot enough to burn a hole in the Sun, but, like a moth to the flame, she always brings me back for more. Watch her videos at your own risk. They are addictive!

Jill Kill is featured in the Star Showcase because of her uncommon talent as a movie-reviewing maven of cinema. Whether a flapper, a gypsy, a hippie, a superhero, or Death, Jill’s a natural, shining every time, like a star on the silver screen. Besides, Jill is also an experienced SAG actress and horror hostess, among her many credits. She currently writes and produces for television (most recently the Adult Swim show Loiter Squad) and has a horror script in the the works that is, no doubt, “a killer.” Jill is available for writing, hosting, acting, voiceover work, modeling, etc.  She may be contacted through her website at

“I prefer to live and work in a world of my own imagination.” ~ Jill Kill

The Space Jockey Time Machine sees an infinity of great things ahead for Jill anywhere she goes; no solar system has the power to capture her as its own!

When the Borg said the famous line, “Resistance is futile,” they were actually referring to Jill Kill. As I started to end this post, I was compelled, by cosmic forces beyond, to include yet another video of Jill. In this one, she’s dressed as Selena Kyle (Anne Hathaway) in the upcoming sure-to-be-blockbuster The Dark Knight Rises. Here, Jill shows off another of her unique appearances, dressed to the nines, and fit for the cover of Vogue! The hat, gloves, and everything is just…perfect! Enjoy!

Over and out for now fellow rocket riders! Don’t stay “down to Earth” too long; there’s too much out there to see–like Jill Kill!

An interview with Jill Kill is in the works! It will be featured in an upcoming post on Space Jockey Reviews. Stay tuned!

VANESSA MORGAN, author of Drowned Sorrow and The Strangers Outside, has just released her latest screenplay A Good Man If you like Dexter and American Psycho, chances are you will love A Good Man. Louis Caron is a good man – vegetarian, he feeds the homeless, takes care of animals and is concerned with the ecological future of the planet. But his altruism has a sinister edge – he’s a vampire – and local detective Taglioni is becoming increasingly suspicious. Louis’ attempt to escape the police will take him on a journey into his own private hell where he is not only forced to confront his worst fears, but also to destroy the lives of those he cares about most.

A Good Man is currently in pre-production with Radowski Films!  I really look forward to seeing on the big screen.  With Vanessa’s talent as a writer, and her creative vision, I have great expectations for the movie.  A full review is already scheduled on the Space Jockey launch pad.  Stay tuned for more details and updates about A Good Man.  I’ll be sure to keep you posted!

From Vanessa’s “About Me” page on her website:

“When Vanessa Morgan’s first novel of supernatural suspense, Drowned Sorrow, came out in 2009, critics all over the world praised her as the ‘female version of Stephen King’. In 2010 followed a short YA story: The Strangers Outside. Both books quickly became Amazon bestsellers and are currently being turned into movies.

Suko’s Notebook called her writing “Everything horror fiction should be: creepy, scary, suspenseful, and yet also touching”, horror director Lucky McKee said Vanessa is “a startling new voice in horror,” and author Scott Nicholson has hailed her as a “talent of pacing and spookiness”.

Vanessa Morgan was born May 24, 1975 in Vilvoorde, Belgium. She graduated from Vrije Universiteit Brussel, and she first worked as a freelance journalist, a language teacher and a pet supply store manager, before becoming a full-time writer. Her native language is Dutch, but she loves to write in other languages such as English and French.

Vanessa Morgan lives in Brussels, Belgium, where she is currently at work on a comic book series starring her beloved cat Avalon.”  Check out her website for the Avalon comic book series at

Here’s what people are saying about Vanessa:

“A startling new voice in horror” – Lucky McKee, director of May and The Woods

“The female version of Stephen King” – Pedro Chaves, director of Reiki

“Vanessa Morgan has the gift of pacing and spookiness” – Scott Nicholson, author of They Hunger and The Farm

“The scariest story of the year” – Sword and Magic

Well, that sure is a lot of good stuff said about Vanessa and her talents as a writer!  If possible, I’ll be interviewing her in the future to find out what interesting things she has to say.  Besides, I have more than a few good questions to ask, as well!

In the meantime visit Vanessa’s superstellar website at and check out her other books below:

Megan Blackwood has lost her son in a terrible accident. Now she has come to Moonlight Creek with her teenage daughter Jenna, hoping that a change of scenery might help to put her life back together. But something odd is happening in Moonlight Creek. Something that has given water a life of its own so that it can now move, think… and kill. When Megan realizes that her daughter’s life is in danger, it might already be too late.

Two sisters, Jennifer and Louise, return to their remote holiday cottage after a day at the seaside. But little do they know they’re being surrounded. Soon after their arrival the girls will come face to face with THE STRANGERS OUTSIDE. When the assailants make their intentions known, things take a shockingly terrible turn and an intense battle for survival will begin.

“When you have a midnight visitor knocking at your door, will you answer?”

A young blonde is disturbed, during the night, by loud knocking at her door.  She assumes it’s someone she knows (John, she says) doing something unwelcome he’s done before—perhaps playing a practical joke, or worse, being an ex-boyfriend stalker.  Who knows?  The possibilities are endless, but mostly bad; we know, from the tone of her voice, that she’s not sure who it is herself.  The typical bluffs are played—“I’m not the only one here,” “My boyfriend is here,” and “I’m gonna call the cops.”  Of course, these aren’t clichés in the movie so much as they are clichés in life.  These are the things that people say when they’re really afraid, and the truth isn’t enough.

What does the blonde do?  Does she answer the door?  Does she get killed or become a killer herself?  I’m not about to tell you much about a film under four minutes long?  You’ll have to visit yourself to find that out.  Let’s just say that she does more than a few things that we all do, for better or worse, when confronted with the ever-dangerous impulse called curiosity.  Yes, that instinctive urge, said to kill the cat every time, is no less determined to drag humans to their doom just as quickly.  “What’s at the door?” you ask.  No matter how many uninvited visitors knock at my door, I’ll never tell!

When you finish watching The Uninvited Visitor, you may ask why I reviewed it.  (There’s always a few who do, no matter what.)  You may wonder what there is to say about a film under four minutes that leaves you hanging like a worm on a hook.  I would say it’s because the film encapsulates, in its short time, the key essence of horror—that fear and dread of the unknown, somehow making us risk all to discover it.  It’s about how we all wind up being the dumb victim of our own horror film, when we least expect it.  Is it that the girl is really dumb?  No.  It’s mostly that she’s human.

What about that home-alone girl, you say—the one drawn to the knocking as much as she is afraid of it.  Well, she’s a cliché who not only works, but also invades our senses with a necessary condition for fear—being vulnerable!  She’s home alone, in the dark, in shorts and a T-shirt, barefoot, and something damn nasty is knocking loudly at her door.  The girl (Katelin Petersen) is a horror heroine as beautiful as any I’ve seen before; yes, beautiful babes always make a good horror film better, and Katelin sure makes this one better!  Young women, in general, define vulnerability in the minds of most viewers; however, could we see Katelin kicking serious “visitor” ass in an upcoming episode?  Could Katelin become the Ellen Ripley of short film horror?  Could she champion the feminists and add eye candy for the guys—as a spandex-suited superhero, perhaps?  Like Katelin, curiosity is all we have for now!  In the meantime, I’ll keep my fingers crossed. :)

Okay, I’ve paid homage to Kaitlin’s status as a horror babe worthy of watching for her looks alone.  I had to do that, because…well…she deserves it!  “But, can this curious cutie act too?” you say.  Yes, absolutely, I say!  Kaitlin does the job she’s on screen to do, infusing character in an otherwise generic role.  She approaches the door, as cautiously and unwisely as she must.  She speaks with desperation and dread that makes us believe, emphasizing threats and scaring no one.  (Not once did I believe there was a boyfriend with a “bat.”  Not once did I believe she wasn’t alone.)  And her looks—her ever-important appearance on screen—goes beyond her being a hottie!  Katelin looks, naturally and skillfully, like the girl next door, alone and afraid, helpless and naïve, able to protect herself from nothing.  Oh, and her scream—it’s perfect!  (It actually scared me more than the thing that made her scream.)  Before you think I’m describing things anyone could do, think again.  It’s not as easy to be afraid of nothing as you may think—the nothing on the set, that is.  It’s not so easy to develop a character, from anyone to someone, in under four minutes.  I’ve seen many people do it very badly!  Kaitlin does it like a pro--a seasoned screamer who's been scared many times before!  In less than four minutes, Kaitlin, as the girl, becomes apprehensive, scared, and finally terrified, not as a stranger, but as someone I know and like.  Keep a lookout for Kaitlin; I’m sure you’ll be seeing more of her soon enough.

The Uninvited Visitor is episode 3 of Midnight Horror Show (MNHS); it’s produced by the two-man team of talent, Rudy Gold and Christian Guzman.  Currently, they release 1-2 episodes per month on their own youtube channel of the same name: Midnight Horror Show.  Each episode serves up a full dose of horror in record time; for movie watchers on the go (or those just wanting a fast thrill), Midnight Horror Show is the perfect fix!  Episodes move fast and punch hard!  From the strength of what I’ve seen, there are many reasons to keep an eye on what Rudy and Christian have in the works!  Check the Midnight Horror Show youtube channel for more!

With the directing of Christian Guzman and the cinematography of Rudy Gold, The Uninvited Visitor does the job of delivering horror in short order, with style as well.  All the fat is trimmed to serve up a lean scene of dread and suspense, without the typical fillers.  Rudy and Christian keep the camera at low angles, creating an eerie Peeping Tom effect—as if we’re watching from the cracks in the floor, or, perhaps, from under the door!  As the girl explores her now unfamiliar home, we, as the viewer, feel we are seeing it as the intruder; it’s as if we are oddly and uncomfortably participating in the terror inflicted on the girl—as if we are the intruder!  At other times, the camera shows us the girl’s perspective—or so we think!  Scenes are darkly-lit, with odd angles making things surreal as well as scary; shadows are menacing, but controlled, showing us just enough and never too much.  The editing, done by Rudy and Christian is also clean and well cut, just like the story itself.  It all flows smoothly enough, without plot confusion spoiling the buildup of tension.  In other words, when the “money shot” occurs, you’ll be focused enough on it to enjoy, or rather, be jolted by it.  You won’t be wondering what just happened here or there before.  Although you’ll get a helping hand, you sure won’t need it! :)

The original score by Erin Powell is perfect to compliment the 70s feel of the film.  Along with Erin’s score, Rudy Gold and Christian Guzman are able to pull off just the right retro effect.  The random, synthesized score keeps the viewer on edge, just as the girl, thinking anything could happen, at any time!  Music can easily make or break a movie, and Erin Powell’s score makes The Uninvited Visitor!

Possibly, the main reason I reviewed The Uninvited Visitor was to clear my head of thoughts it inspired.  You could even call them “uninvited” thoughts that just came wrapping, ever so loudly, at my chamber door—only that and nothing more!  “Quoth the Raven, ‘Nevermore.’”  Just like the girl in The Uninvited Visitor, my curiosity got the best of me; but, unlike the cat, the raven, and possibly the girl in the film, I’m still alive.  So, who cares!  Watch The Uninvited Visitor below!  Viewer discretion is not advised, but wise decisions are!

Starring Katelin Petersen, Guest Starring Christian Guzman, Directed by Christian Guzman, Directed by Christian Guzman, Cinematography by Rudy Gold, Edited by Christian Guzman and Rudy Gold, Original Score by Erin Powell, Sound Design by Christian Guzman, Executive Producer: Rudy Gold, Produced by Gold Standard, DIY Productions, and J Martin Films

As Trespasser begins, an alarm clock wakes a man in bed.  He could be any man, but soon we feel and see that he is not; quickly he becomes not only a stranger but something far worse.  Flashbacks and scenes from the moment tell a grim tale of something terribly wrong—of something getting even worse.  If I went on, I’d ruin the impact of a most effective short film, and, of course, I never like to do that.  I’ll only say that this man is a monster.

Human monsters are the worst and scariest of all, because they are real.  Even the most flamboyant villains from Hollywood—Pinhead, Freddy Krueger, Jason, and the like—are no match for those of the human kind that live each day, in the real world, stoking fears in the light as well as the dark.  Just the names of such killers are enough to disturb and chill the nerves of even the most desensitized of movie watchers.  I don’t need to name any here; we all know them.  (That one in your head right now probably has you a bit disturbed already.)

Trespasser is a short film that includes, as its main character, a generic man who could be anyone—the man next door, the man who teaches our children, the man who defends our case in court, ad infinitum.  He is methodical, apathetic, and cold, without concern for anything in his environment—other than what he needs for himself.  People are as disposable as trash—their bodies like useless packaging, after the product is consumed.  Human suffering is dispensed with purpose, as a routine, but never felt.

Already, I’ve explained the reason that Trespasser is so effective as a horror film, be it short or long.  It’s art imitating the worst things in life.  However, there is another element in this film that chills the marrow of even those most resistant.  I’ll only say that a child is involved.  Combining that with what I’ve already described should be more than enough to make the point.

Matt Fowler, the actor who plays the psycho, does it with creepy authenticity, as well as it could be done by anyone—even the best stars out there.  Although it may not take as much effort to portray someone with no emotions, in a silent role, for little more than three minutes, Matt certainly puts forth the effort and shows true talent.  For this, he gets a ten-rocket salute!  Matt's detached, unaffected appearance is chilling!  Katy Rowe also does a convincing job of portraying the tortured and terrorized victim.  As minimal as her role is, it is necessary and well done; she is the girl next door, the one we all know, and just like someone we all love.  I can only imagine that terrorized victims act as much like her; the fear on Katy’s face in the closing scenes looks real, fooling my imagination into believing it is.

Trespasser is another outstanding short film written and directed by Bryan Ryan.  (Bryan also directed The Guest, also featured here on Space Jockey Reviews.)  Trespasser, like The Guest, showcases Bryan’s ability to captivate an audience quickly, delivering a distilled but ever-potent dose of fear in record time.  No, he’s not the first to do a film on this subject, of course.  However, he pulls it off here as well as I’ve seen it done, in a fraction of the time it usually takes.

Trespass was shot and edited by Brian Smith.  Scenes flow smoothly, easily followed, with flashbacks that connect without confusion; scenes linger on the moments, giving (if not forcing) the viewer to think about what is happening.  Dwayne Cathey’s score is brooding and ominous, reflecting the dreamy, out-of-touch mind of the killer; Kelsey Boutte’s special effects make Katy Rowe look convincing as the victim, in anything but a dream.  All in all, the production team works well to create a film that fits all elements together successfully to achieve its effect.

Some of the most chilling scenes in Trespass occur as the credits roll.  In the end, the viewer is a witness to the killer’s recorded events, making things even more horrific.  Just when you think it’s over, it’s not; visuals are added at just the right moment to heighten the effect and make it stick.  Yes, Trespasser is a movie that hangs with you long after it’s over, even if you try to shake it off.

Why does Trespasser stick with you?  Again, it’s because it’s about reality—what happens everyday, somewhere, and what could also happen, at any time, to us.  The killer has no name, but his anonymity makes him all the more horrific; he could be anyone and everyone.  Trespasser reminds us, as a warning, that we, or our loved ones, with just the right mistake, could be his next victim.  What greater horror is there?  I say none.  Real horror is what reminds of what could happen to ourselves, and Trespasser reminds us of that from beginning to end.

Starring Matt Fowler and Katy Rowe, Written and Directed by Bryan Ryan, Shot and Edited by Brian Smith, Special Make-Up Effects by Kelsey Boutte, Music by Dwayne Cathey, A Final Girl Films Production

 “What is it about robots that makes them so robotic?”

Here’s a neat and very creative video produced by Twentieth Century Fox, promoting the upcoming release of PROMETHEUS.  It’s a mock commercial advertising androids produced and sold by Weyland Industries–the precursor of the Weyland-Yutani Corporation from ALIEN (1979).  (That’s the company that produced Ash–the covert, psycho android that nearly choked Ripley to death with a magazine, before having his head knocked off.)

David is the name of the feature android (played by Michael Fassbender), showcasing all of his human features, as well as pointing out the benefits of qualities that are less than human.  Yes, in the future, some human traits are just not worth reproducing.  Imagine that! Just when you think you’re living in the age of optimal technology, also think again.  Androids like David are surely on the way, and this promotional video makes us wish it was sooner rather than later.  Let’s just hope the androids never repeat this memorable line: “Bring back life form. Priority One. All other priorities rescinded.”   Enjoy!  :)

Alyshia Ochse is at the top of my list of favorite actresses.  Her rocket-fueled performance in The Guest—featured here on Space Jockey Reviews—is all I need to show anyone the reasons.  Alyshia plays her role in the most natural way, fooling even our right brain into the fiction we’re watching.  As Dana—the temporary hostage in The Guest—Alyshia’s performance is flawless, showing a range of character and emotions that make the film the success it is.  She transforms a scared and vulnerable girl next door into a crazed killer, with all the malevolence and ill will in the best femme fatales out there!  What’s more is that Alyshia does this all in just over 14 minutes!  The meek and tearful Dana becomes cold and calculating, with a psycho smile making the cliché unique.  For this performance, Alyshia has my nomination for a short-film Oscar!

Even the best special effects, directing, cinematography and the rest, without Alyshia, would leave The Guest lacking—like a guest without a host.  Alyshia’s line “…don’t worry.  It’ll only hurt for a second,” is one I’ve already added to the list of Space Jockey Reviews’ favorite horror movie quotes. Hearing her say that alone is a must for horror fans; just make sure you’re under a cover or two when you do; it’s chilling regardless of the season! My Space Jockey helmet is officially off, saluting Alyshia Ochse as one out-of-this-world leading lady in a short horror film—and, trust me, this Space Jockey has seen quite a few!

Alyshia’s acting resumé includes a long list of other features—all of which showcase her standout talent as an actress.  She is, perhaps, best known for her role as Irina Cassadine in the soap opera General Hospital.  For Alyshia’s complete filmography, check her IMDB page by clicking here. Alyshia also has her own film production company called S.L. Productions.  I look forward to seeing what else she may produce—another horror film possibly?  I’ll just keep my fingers crossed for that! If you haven’t seen The Guest yet, watch it below!  VIEWER DISCRETION IS ADVISED!

In Alyshia’s most recent role, she plays Trish Garrety in Stash House—a new movie also starring Dolf Lundgren, Briana Evigan, Sean Faris, and Jon Huertas. It’s about a couple who find illegal drugs stashed in the walls of their newly-bought dream home. Soon, they discover that the house is hiding more than drugs! Hmmm. I wonder what that could be? I’m not telling, no matter how many gun-wielding, revenge-hungry guys you send after me. Besides, I don’t know anyway. In the meantime, check out the trailer below, and make plans to see the movie!

As the Space Jockeys travel the universe, they encounter many brilliant stars along the way.  Some shine brighter than others–enough so to deserve a special place for all to see.  Rachel Bright–the beautiful and talented star of Red Balloon (featured here on Space Jockey Reviews)–is one such beacon of light.  Her performance in Red Balloon alone shows acting ability that is natural, real, and believable.  In Red Ballon, Rachel turns a stereotypic babysitter into a character who is original and unique, yet familiar enough that we care about her–all in less than thirteen minutes!

Rachel’s resumé, of course, includes far more than her part as the babysitting teen in Red Balloon.  She is, perhaps, best known for her performance as Poppy Meadow in the British soap opera, EastEnders.  However, regardless of her role, she always seems to live it, rather than act it out.  It is for this reason that Rachel is showcased in the first of a series of posts highlighting the best and brightest of stars found earthbound and beyond.  Watch Rachel’s showreel below, and you’ll see for yourself why her future, as well as her name, is truly Bright!
