Greetings Faithful Followers,
We are always on the lookout for indie horror films here in the Omaha metro area and i believe we have found a real gem here. The Film is Called If The Shoe fits.Produced by Splitsville Productions.It is written and directed by Nate Coulumbe and produced by Mark Popejoy. Nate also plays the employee who quits the shoemakers employment and in some ways sets the stage for the carnage that follows. The story revolves around a shoe repair store run by Tony Haynes who after losing his only employee to a better job offer sets about the task of running the store singlehandedly, the cobbler keeps the situation in hand until a slew of bitchy and demanding customers pushes him to commit the unthinkable with bloody and just deserved results for the customers.
The customers played by Mark Popejoy, Melissa Holder, Carter Coulombe, Eric Dwight, Crazy Courtney, Jennifer Johnson and Anthony Blake did excellent jobs as the customers from hell. By the time i was done watching my only regret is that we the viewers did not get to see more of them sent to the hell they so richly deserve. Mark Popejoy as the right wing Trumpanzee biker was a stand out in his quintessential douchebaggery in his berating the store owner I would have been tempted to take the hammer to him myself. The 2nd customer the wedgie shoe bitch also met a satisfying and bloody end at the hands of the cobbler the playing or big band music while sawing her feet off and the fast paced jazz music as he was beating her skull to a pulp...BRAVO!. We also want to give Benito Garcia and the staff of Wetworks SFX kudos on the blood fx and the death scenes.
My only detraction and this is a minor one was when the cobbler was beating the skull of shoe bitch
there was not as much blood splatter as you might think, considering the amount of fluids that are contained in the human skull I might be wrong but a great scene none the less.
So in closing we give If The Shoe Fits and Splitsville Productions a two big thumbs way way up from myself Brother Jack Angry and Brother James and the rest of the crew here at the Monastery of Mayhem.
So in conclusion we will wrap this up with a reminder to our friends and fans to support local indie filmmakers, shop local and to keep america on top watch horror hosts y'all and friends dont let friends wear lab coats.
