    From the writer of the abortion themed saw rip-off The Life Zone comes a Postal themed slasher film for the ages, 2015’s Joker’s Poltergeist: The Aurora Massacre, starring Eric Roberts and Lacey Marie Meyer and directed by Christopher S Lind.James Jennings commits a mass shooting in a movie theatre during the screening of this film’s American title. Protagonist, Aurora. You see what they did there? Aurora witnesses her father get killed and is only spared by the actions of a good guy with a gun. Aurora gets engaged with said good guy with a gun and decides to reopen the movie theatre in tribute to the shooting victims. Little does she know the extent some extremists will go to get their message across and her and the other remaining survivors are soon subject to spooky goings on on the anniversary of this based on real events massacre.I have confidence that i have as much respect for the real life victims of the 2012 Aurora mass shooting as writer/producer/actor/wasn’t hugged enough as a child Kenneth Vel Vecchio demonstrates with his work on Joker’ Poltergeist when i say that this is a loaded gun of a screenplay.Kenneth sure as hell wasn’t born with a double barrelled name, but let’s not get too salty here. Let’s stick to the FACTS. Joker’s Wild gives us one spicy meatball as it sugar’s over classy right wing trolling with gore and nudity to give mentally ill horror fans pro-second amendment propaganda disguised as something Neil Breen would conceive if he up and decided to have surgically removed his morals.To Kenneth Del Vacci-no and co’s credit, Joker’s Poltergeist: The Aurora Massacre is a genuine psychotronic experience and in contemporary independent genre cinema where it seems every other film is made by industry climbers thinking they are one director’s credit away from working on the next Marvel movie, it’s good to see a modern example of a true white male outsider visionary splooging his reactionary angst all over the screen.Joker’s Poltergeist: The Aurora Massacre does to the terrorist attack movie what Mandingo did to the slavery movie. It uses real life tragedy to promote political views that are let’s just say not my cup o frappe and therefore i should despise it, right? Well, it’s hard to say. I don’t review many modern horror films.The gen X/millennial dogma of making a film good, not big has made a sad scene out of independent genre films. But it’s not like recession era DTV filmmakers today have any other choice than to believe shooting on DV with has been or never were stars was enough to get noticed. Nope, the entire independent theatre is underfunded and overexposed.With this context, Joker’s Wild’s politicisation is like a fresh breath of chemtrails. It is sincere, insane exploitation, a gold rarity in contemporary genre films. sixty-four or so minutes of no tone, ill taste and persecution complexities.Must also be said that this is stylishly directed by Christopher S Lind who adds a distinctive approach to the insanity. Although it is the smoke and mirrors screenplay that is the true star and provided great entertainment for me.In other words, i find it more preferable to watch over-ambitious exploitation made by people who advocate for the liberal distribution of utensils of war rather than watch academy award winning productions directed by a rapist. You know who i’m talking about.Also, I wasn’t a victim or related to anybody who was a victim of the Aurora mass shooting of 2012 or any other terrorist attack for that matter. If you are, stay well clear, as this film does not make any effort to be your friend.For everyone else, i do wholeheartedly recommend this descent into American sickness with gusto as it’s truly deluded beyond measure, for our pleasure.

    The Palace Theater is having a grand opening of a horror show when a man in a clown’s mask shoots up the place killing the owner (Martin Kove) before getting killed himself (Eric Roberts). The killer was a former partner who got kicked out and lost in court. The owner’s daughter Aurora (Lacy Marie Meyer), in LET THAT BE YOUR LAST BATTLEFIELD make up, is devastated and the survivors all go to group. A year later they all get together at the scene of the crime, as the town wants to demolish the building. Then things start to happen as Aurora suffers from nightmares and hallucinations or are they real hauntings? The acting wasn’t really good. I thought Eliza Roberts did a better job than her husband. His role should have been Tony Todd or Robert Englund who has done “theater.” Aurora is both the name of sleeping beauty and the site of a horrific theater shooting connected to “The Joker.” The film contained a gun control argument that was inane and I am not sure what was the point. The “you shouldn’t like guns” scene could have been cut. Many might consider the feature in bad taste in the wake of the tragedy. The appearance of the “jokers” throughout the film was a confused mess.Guide: F-word, sex, nudity (Lacy Marie Meyer, Suzi Lorraine, Seregon O’Dassey)

    Joker’s Wild otherwise known as Joker’s Poltergeist otherwise known as American Poltergeist 4: The Curse of the Joker has two major glaring problems. For a start it’s absolutely terrible and second, it’s in the poorest taste I’ve seen in years.First about the initial issue, the movie is terrible. It tells the story of a mass shooting at a cinema, one year later the late owners daughter is reopening but she’s haunted by visions.The plot is naff, it flows about as well as Cambodian plumbing and the two name stars Eric Roberts and Martin “Karate Kid” Kove are conveniently playing characters who are separate from the rest of the cast and could have been filming their scenes from home.And the second issue, remember the Aurora cinema shooting in 2012? Well this is making a mockery out of that incident. Let’s see it’s about a mass shooting in a cinema, the lead girls name is Aurora and the shooter has bright orange hair. Add to this lots of back and forth arguments both pro and anti gun control and the whole thing screams poor taste. I don’t know what the writers thought they were trying to accomplish here but quite frankly it’s sick.Awful film and in the worst possible taste.The Good:Lacy Marie MeyerThe Bad:The whole thing is in bad tasteJust an all round amateur attemptKove/Roberts not even being on set
