A night of necking at Lovers’ Lane gets the shaft when a monster rears its ugly head in this comedic send-up to ’50s creature features.
Trouser Snake, the title alone gives an idea of the overall theme. Presented is a five-minute exhibition of creativity. The production is basic with attention given to practical effects. The latter becomes the main attraction.
It is a pleasure to see more up and coming filmmakers using practical means for creature creation. With the advancements of CGI the techniques would not have the same effect in Trouser Snake.
Grimbridge Productions released Trouser Snake for free streaming on YouTube. The cast includes the talents of Alexander Gauthier, Jamie Lyn Bagley, Michael Thurber, William DeCoff, Monica Saviolakis, and Morgan Walsh star. Special effects artist Jordan Pacheco created and puppeteered the creature.
Director Alex DiVincenzo creates an appropriate throwback to vintage creature feature horror.
“Last year, I somehow convinced some of the most talented cast and crew members to be in New England to help me make a movie about a one-eyed monster….”
“I loved seeing audiences react to it at film festivals, and now I’m excited to put it online for all to see.”
Alex DiVincenzo, Trouser Snake Director
Trouser Snake is a Comedy, Horror hybrid. With The film remains on a steady pace in comedy. This may or may not appeal to Horror film connoisseurs looking for straightforward gore. In fact, Cilano and DiVincenzo penned a script that builds to a creative final reveal.
Concept wise Trouser Snake treks to the past. Yet, the presentation lacks adequate representation of an earlier era. The dialogue is comical but gee willikers its doubtful expressions used are authentic.
The creature concept although creative bears similarity to a particular carnivorous house plant.
