    I REALLY don't want to do a shameless promotion for things because I know that's frowned upon in these forums, BUT a couple friends of mine and I started doing this B-movie horror show thing called Frightmare Alley where we'll do skits and show B-movies and things like that. We JUST did our first episode, which is on YouTube, and is gonna be on the Vortexx Channel starting May 7th at 9pm. I'm one of the host, and would LOVE your opinion. Also, like us on FB and you'll get...........well, probably nothing, but still I'd love it if you like us and give us your honest opinion.
    Sorry, I know people hate these things, and trust me, if I wasn't one of the guys in it, I wouldn't even be doing this, but I have to and if you all don't like it or this gets deleted, I understand why.

    Seeing as how this is over an hour, I'll take a look at it tomorrow, and give you an opinion on it.

    Cool, thanks. Granted, it's our first try, so at least take that into consideration lol

    I just got finished looking at the first episode, and I'm rully liking this so far...

    Showcase shows like this are always cool, but I like the nature of this one, dedicated to B movies and spooky atmosphere, almost kind of like Elvira, only much more fun; the hosts are great, each of them, but also with their interaction and their bantering back-and-forth, especially with how out-of-place Chip Whitley seems (loved his feeble attempts at an evil laugh at the end). Can't decide which one is my favorite yet, like I said, individually, each of the hosts are great. In addition to all of that, I also love the jabs at pop culture as well, like the comments about the "Jersey Bores" (or is it Boars), and the cracks about Lady GaGa's wardrobe and how shocking it would be if she wore normal clothes. :laugh:

    I only have one minor quibble that I think could be taken into consideration: the audio could use a little balancing out, either the music score is too loud, or the dialogue is too quiet, because the music drowns out the dialogue a bit, which makes it hard to hear exactly what they're saying, and I'm sure I probably missed a few of the jokes and comments, but again, for the most part, it's all great.

    Now I'm just trying to figure out... you're Chip Whitley, aren't you?
  5. Teheheman

    Teheheman Well-Known Member

    How did you figure that out? Yes, I am Chip Whitley.

  6. D'Snowth

    D'Snowth Well-Known Member

    Easy, because you were the only one who didn't stand out. :p

    I kid, mainly it's because a very white guy with long hair and glasses and a tacky suit has "Daniel Croxton" written all over it.

    Well, on a serious note, I had a hunch... I actually wasn't sure if you were Chip, or actually Master Deaths, but I just had a feeling that my hunch that you were indeed Chip Whitley, lol.

    This smacks of MST3K and that is always good! I do love the whole feel of the piece. It's very tongue in cheek and that works for these B-Budget horror flicks. CAMP is good!

    If I may offer a suggestion- two actually! As much as I love your intro (And I seriously do! It's very well done.) you may want to shorten it a little. Don't keep people waiting TOO long till the meat and potatoes.
    The second is that I would suggest better mics. I want to hear your banter more easily and with the distance you are from the audio, it's not always crystal clear.

    Otherwise, I dig it! This is totally the kind of stuff I would and do watch all the time. Great job!

    I'm glad you 2 like it, we're doing another one tomorrow and hope to continue the momentum and I hope that I, personally, do a better job at this lol.

    The new episode is up now, and I swear nothing makes you think you're a bad actor than seeing yourself doing it. BUT, I'm my own worst critic, I'll let you guys decide.

    I know how you feel, but I mean personally, I like what you have going on there, I think that's what makes your character all the more interesting that you've got this spooky setting, and spooky hosts presenting old B-movies, then there's this average joe hanging out with them, I like the dynamics you've got going on there. I will say you had a few more funnier lines in this one as opposed to the last one, like the "Ain't Got No Body" reference... and did you ad-lib literally dying of shock when you and Master Deat_'s fist bumped? That looked improvised to me, lol.

    There were also some improvements with this episode too... I like how the lighting on your set was toned way down, that fit the embience of the location much better and made it look more authentic, as well as the audio levels were a little better too, so it was easier to hear you guys speak.

    I do have one question though, are we to expect more of Sebastian Hexx's alter-egos, is this going to be a regular thing like we're to wonder who exactly he'll be this time, will it be random occurances, or was this just a one-shot thing?
  11. Teheheman

    Teheheman Well-Known Member

    Well, Master Deat_'s character is kind of like the Grim Reaper, so I had the idea of high fiving him and dying, we didn't do it the first take, but during the break in filming, I chatted with them about it and they thought it was a good idea, so we did it and I actually liked how that turned out.
    As far as Sebastian Hexx goes, I don't know if he'll be in the same outfit every week or if this is the more permanent outfit for the show. I'll ask him about it and letcha know. Although, I guess the answer should be 'You should keep watching to find out' but they don't tell me anything in advance other than the movie we're gonna do lol. Glad you like it so far, I'm having a blast doing it.

    So I was wondering is there any kind of update/release schedule for new episodes, or are they being released somewhat at random, whenever they're completed?
  13. Teheheman

    Teheheman Well-Known Member

    I haven't heard yet. The last I heard was that we are under 'retooling' and we're also gonna hold a contest soon. So..........all I can say is stay tuned. I will make sure to post updates ASAP.

  14. Teheheman

    Teheheman Well-Known Member

    Movie has been picked for the next episode. Last I heard we'll film more than 1, and we're also having a contest on our Facebook page. The movie is gonna be Plan 9 from Outer Space, and I'll let you all know what the other one is. If anybody has any suggestions, let me know, I'll be sure to forward the suggested movies.

  15. Teheheman

    Teheheman Well-Known Member

    Contest winner(winner had to pull out, check the FB page for more)
    But, anyways, Plan 9 filmed, and in the next couple days, it'll be up.
    Next movie: Original Little Shop of Horrors(w/Jack Nicholson)
    As always, movie suggestions are always welcome

  16. Teheheman

    Teheheman Well-Known Member

    Plan 9 is up on YouTube, It'll be on the Vortexx Channel(online on Livestream) tomorrow @ 10pm Eastern. So.......yeah, check it out. Oh and I apologize, as usual, for my singing lol. Oh, and the original Little Shop of Horrors is gonna be the next movie but if you saw this episode, I guess you already knew that.

  17. D'Snowth

    D'Snowth Well-Known Member

    On the contrary, one of my favorite parts was where you and Master Deat's started singing "Elvira" (or "Vampira"), while Sebastian Hexx stood back there shaking his head at you two. XD

    Speaking of which, I must say, I'm glad you guys have resolved the audio issues, I can actually hear you guys talking now.

    The credits were funny too... "Wardrobe: OUR CLOSETS Makeup: WHAT ARE YOU SAYING, WE'RE UGLY?"

    So Mr. Chip Whitley, when's the next entry in the series? Halloween is around the corner, now would be a good time to really get the series noticed.
  19. Teheheman

    Teheheman Well-Known Member

    I TRIED to e-mail IFC to show Indie Horror/B-movies and have Indie Horror Host host them but I haven't been able to get ahold of anybody. I'm HOPING that we at LEAST film something soon but that's not MY call. The other 2 are doing the Haunt at Kings Island(A local amusement park) so I haven't heard anything about a future schedule. I'll try to IM him tonight or sometime in the next few weeks. You can also ask them on our FB page if you want. I'll keep EVERYBODY posted when more develops, I promise.

    Holiday episode next week, but for now, enjoy the original Little Shop of Horrors
