VHS Transfer/Unrated (Probably PG)
It’s my last time hosting ISMN @ Brewvies people, but not to worry, I’ll be handing this film off to my friend and ISMN veteran Jesse Tucker.
Please give him a warm welcome!
You’ve probably noticed ISMN and this blog have slowed down a bit, and there’s a good explanation.
1. I moved out of “Art City Palace” and back to my home town Ogden, UT. 2. I started a new job as an early reader co-author and artist with co-author Jenni James for the series “Andy and Annie: A Ghost Story”
The hard copy should be up on Amazon anytime now but for now here’s a link to the kindle version:
3. I’m opening up a video/record store in Ogden called “Video Cave.” The biggest draw being old and rare films unavailable on DVD/Netflix/or Redbox :) (It used to be an old pawn shop).
4. My dear mumsy has experienced a stroke and gave us quite a scare. I’ll be closer to home to help take care of her. She has no paralysis but this has greatly effected her memory.
5. I just need a break. After running ISMN weekly for the past decade and over 2 years at Brewvies, I’ve run out of steam and don’t have the energy at the moment to give it the attention it deserves. I will still attend and advise Jesse’s screenings in SLC, but any ISMN that I still host will probably stick to once a month privately with friends - The private art film series will continue :) (Make sure you’re on my mailing list ;)
I don’t know if I can think of a better way to end my own hosting run at Brewvies than with one of my new favorite discoveries “Game of Death.” A VHS I found at a convenience store while visiting Calgary Canada.
And believe me folks, it’s so refreshing to find a new “so bad it’s good” film this solid! Simple and ridiculous, this sci-fi low budge is a breath of fresh air from the vaults of 80’s camp straight to video madness. (My guess is that this never made it to the theater, knowing most of the Rae Don VHS library.)
Some favorite reviews from Amazon.com:
5.0 out of 5 stars King of the super 8’s December 20, 2013
By lindsay norgard
Wow from the days of super 8 and no budget monster type film making. Really have to appreciate the era and low budget and kid fan filmmaker. Good primer to Spielberg and JJ’s Abrahms film Super 8. Fun stupid fun, silly and just plain 80’s chesseball fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Do it! March 27, 2012
By Movie Madness
Format:VHS Tape|Amazon Verified Purchase
Do you think you can survive the game? I did and I’ve got 3 words for you… Apocalyptic Cheese Fest!
Sadly there are hardly any reviews and photos from “Game of Survival” online, hopefully this screening will help motivate an actual DVD release! Heck I might even buy a Blue Ray player for the first time, if that’s how it was re-issued!
Bonus Short Film:
Robogo Productions is back with another “Ida” film and the sequel to last year’s “Valentine’s Date” film! Incredibly Strange Movie Night is proud to debut:
"Valentine’s Date 2: Ida’s Revenge"
I’ve seen half of the finished product and if you thought Ida was disturbing before, this blows the other shorts out of the ball park. This new one is more like a psychotic horror film! I even frightened myself seeing some of the footage!
Starring Jordan Harker and myself (as Ida)
Time and Place: 10:45 PM @ Brevies Cinema and Pub in SLC
Price: FREE as always
Join us for my last hosting of ISMN at Brewvies before I turn it over to other capable hands :)
Thank you so much for your support over the years!!!!
See you there!

(PS Message - For my girl friend’s parents and the people who are scared of Ida films: I’m not the person I portray on film. It’s called acting - like someone getting into character when you listen to a book on tape. It’s not real I promise. It’s only a movie and I’m acting from a script.)
