Fan films have gone from being a couple of people in their backyard with a camcorder to… just actual movies. The accessibility of the technology and the Internet giving an education to whoever wants it has allowed groups of driven and talented individuals have their visions seen and heard across the world. And I couldn’t be happier with the results!
Red Hood IT is a crossover that I didn’t know I wanted until I saw it. A horror movie villain taking on DC? Oh, and it’s super high quality!? I would ask where I sign up but no sign up is required, you get to see it on youtube RIGHT NOW FOR FREE LUCKY YOU!
For those familiar with Red Hood, you’ll be please to see the little details that focus on the character’s background. For those not familiar with Red Hood, you’ll also be please because the guy is a total badass and he murders bad guys.
The reason I chose this video to highlight is the sheer level of quality we are dealing with. The premise is creative. The writing is solid despite the profanity coming off a little cheesy sometimes. The actors, camera work… everything! The sound though is what stands out the most to me. I kept feeling like I should be watching it on a big screen somewhere. It went from action to NOPE really quickly once IT’s red balloon showed up and I credit that entirely to the eerie background music and ambient sounds.
All in all, Red Hood IT is a solid 9/10 from me and I hope to see more awesome cross overs from everyone involved in the future.
