Patrick Rea: THE FLUFF / PRISONER EXCHANGE / WOMAN'S INTUITION / HELL WEEK

4 more films from Patrick Rea's extensive filmography:

THE FLUFF
(fake trailer)

USA, 2007
Director: Patrick Rea

10/10








Hilarious and gloriously entertaining, but also incredibly well-made and good-looking fake trailer for a
black-and-white 50s horror movie about killer-cotton which mocks classics like "The Blob", "The Thing" or "The Stuff".

I had a blast watching this, especially because of the Fluff-O-Rama,
the funny taglines ("More shocking than The Notebook", "100% Cotton, 100% Terror") and the amusing dialogue ("My god, it's... cotton!" - That's not possible.").
Super!

PRISONER EXCHANGE AT BANNON'S LOOKOUT
(8minute short)

USA, 2007
Director: Patrick Rea & Kendal Sinn

8/10


Interesting and thrilling story about kidnapping, annoying reporters, gunshooting hicks, weird creatures and aliens(?).
It's brilliantly written and filmed, lighting and settings look really cool, the editing is strong and (Rea trademark) the soundtrack is just fabulous.
Highlights: the few shots from the creature's arms
and the stunningly fantastic ending.

Very good!

Watch it here!



WOMAN'S INTUITION
(8minute short)

USA, 2008
Director: Patrick Rea

10/10





This little film about a woman's intuition with a twist is undoubtedly one of Rea's best works so far. An awesome, original and intelligent story, perfectly written and wonderfully filmed.

Main actress Megan Carter is a beautiful woman that delivers an insightful and very believable performance.
The direction is strong and the script is flawless. Kudos to Ryan S. Jones for a wonderful score, and kudos to Josh Robison for the tight editing.
Furthermore, I have to mention the awesomeness of the ending... jeez, this ending is so incredibly mindblowing, it's stunning.

Absolutely amazing, wow!

Watch it here!



HELL WEEK
(10minute short)

USA, 2011
Director: Patrick Rea

10/10







"Hell Week" is one of Rea's newest works. I had the honour to watch an almost finished but not yet released version of it - and to my amazement, Rea once again blew my mid.

It's a ravishing yet quite brutal film about fraternity rituals, a mean bet and a punishment that got out of control.
Every single actor delivers a brilliant.performance.
The editing is top notch (love all the transitions between the colorful girls' room and the dark 'ritual room').
Script and direction are perfect, the pumping soundtrack is highly effective, the dialogue is cool and the shocking ending is... well, shocking!

Hands down Mr. Rea, "Hell Week" is simply awesome!
