Long time Expressionists will remember this series!
Back with even more scientific illiteracy coupled with a story that strays far, FAR from what the title of the movie professes it to be about. But hey, if you’re into exorcisms and hauntings, this might be up your alley.

This would be the first review to use the new Manic Expression outro for 2022 – though slightly edited from the original to better match the 5 second timeframe in my videos.
Interestingly enough, this one being a mockbuster of Godzilla: King of the Monsters means it came out well before the Asylum mockbuster of Godzilla vs Kong, “Ape vs Monster.” Despite that, this one comes off considerably better put together with more impressive effects, better use of sets and a much better plot.
Eric Roberts also plays in both movies, both times being a “military dude” but strangely enough, completely different characters. He was Ethan Marcos in AVM, while he plays General Horne in Monster Island.

So yeah, my camera was maybe kinda sorta set waaaaay too bright when recording this review. Not having all that much time to re-do it, I decided “Fix it in post!”
Which meant a slight increase of saturation, cranking up the contrast, working in the highlights and shadows, and pulling back the exposure here and there. Honestly, if you saw what it looked like before, you might be impressed!
Fortunately, it also kinda matches the aesthetic of Skinned Deep, so let’s call it a “happy accident.”

Wanna talk about crazy schedules?
After this weekends’ EFAP and the marathon of Predator movies to prepare, I feel into a bit of an anxiety pit and time got really, really tight.
I started the script for this review 25 hours ago.
It’s been a wild work day, lemmie tell ya.

You know, I’ve spent more time noticing how movies use color grading ever since I started doing the greenscreen, and trying to color match with the films. Leprechaun: Origins? It’s dark. REALLY dark. The background picture on the title card has it’s luminance cranked +90 with +95% contrast just to make it semi-visible at normal YouTube title card levels.
