Watch Jordan Downey’s Short Film Techno Western

  • DailyDead
He's induced laughter and chills in previous projects like ThanksKilling, Critters: Bounty Hunter, and Red Weather, but in his latest short film, director Jordan Downey channels the nostalgia of Stranger Things and combines it with the coming-of-age poignancy of early Stephen King stories in Techno Western, which you can watch right now on Daily Dead.

In addition to Techno Western, which you can watch below, we also have a Q&A with Downey that offers more insights into the making of the short film.

"What was the genesis and inspiration for this project?

Jordan Downey: The idea, really, is drawn from my childhood. When I was a kid I would always take my squirt guns and spray paint them to look like some cannon or prop from Star Wars. I’d duct tape flashlights and pocket knives to the barrel and pretend to go “hunting” in the woods for bad guys.

Watch the Return of the Krites in New Short Fan Film ‘Critters: Bounty Hunter’

  • DailyDead
The Krites first came to the big screen two years after Gremlins, but they didn’t need to be fed after midnight to become evil—they were malevolent little monsters from the get-go in 1986’s Critters and its three sequels. The ferocious furballs are set to make a comeback in an upcoming digital series from Warner Bros., but you can see the return of the Krites right now in a new short fan film, Critters: Bounty Hunter.

Created with a six-person crew and helmed by Jordan Downey, the director of ThanksKilling and ThanksKilling 3, Critters: Bounty Hunter is Downey’s bid for the director’s chair on the digital series, while also serving as an early holiday gift for Critters fans.

“The Following Is A Fan Film.

Warner Bros. recently announced plans to revive “Critters” as a web series for their digital unit, Blue Ribbon Content. I’ve been a

Interview: Jordan Downey and Kevin Stewart Talk Thankskilling 3
Creating a memorable, frightening horror-comedy that at the same time satirizes the amusing humor that famously characterize low-budget, vulgar films can be a difficult task for relatively new filmmakers. But director Jordan Downey and his writing and producing partner Kevin Stewart did just that with their new movie ‘ThanksKilling 3,’ the follow-up to their 2009 feature film debut, ‘ThanksKilling.’ The two worked closely together to continue the story of their infamous villain puppet character from their first film, Turkie, to not only please fans wondering what happened to the trouble-making villain, but to also continue targeting a holiday not previously ruined by horror with cheesy one-liners and jokes. ‘ThanksKilling 3′ [ Read More ]

Movie Review: ThanksKilling 3 (2012)

  • MoreHorror
Reviewed by Jesse Miller, MoreHorror.com

I’ve seen a lot of goofy and absurd indie horror-comedies in my lifetime but a horror-comedy about a homicidal, foul-mouthed turkey on a killing spree as in ThanksKilling 3 takes the cake without question.

This turkey isn’t just preying on a bunch of kids on thanksgiving though – there’s an offbeat, pretty creative plot at work that sees the titular turkey going into a killing spree after learning that copies worldwide of ThanksKilling 2 were obliterated because it was the worst movie ever – a winking nod for the events to follow, I’d wager.

Meanwhile, there’s also an intriguing plot following a cute puppet named Yomi as she enlists the help of humans and puppets alike to help her search for the missing piece of her mind – yeah, it’s odd but It is actually oddly charming I found.

ThanksKilling 3 Review

Back in 2009, an extremely independent Thanksgiving themed horror film was created called ThanksKilling, introducing the world to a foul-mouthed and murderous one-liner serving fowl named Turkie. I caught Jordan Downey’s film streaming on Netflix late one night with an equally open-minded horror fan, and we were completely taken aback by the amature-ish nature of the film. It was like a film school project gone wrong, attempting to make the most crude jokes and terrible dialogue while playing around with a turkey puppet, hoping to achieve “so bad it’s good” fame. I mean sure, Ok, a horror film centered around a demonic turkey with a knack for terrible puns sounded like an entertaining watch at least, as long as you’re a die-hard B-Movie fan, but the intelligence level of ThanksKilling was comparable to an unborn fetus. A downright painful experience for anyone expecting a fun, low-budget horror romp with some demented holiday action.

Thankskilling 3 is clearly the weirdest sequel of the year. The turkey horror franchise is skipping the second film in the trilogy and goes right to the 3. This scene features a turkey battle to the death, with silly puns, a muppet, live action, and the fight going retro-video-game-style. It promises to be wacky.
