Film Description
B O M B S H E L T E R Part 2

****PLEASE READ FIRST OR YOU WILL MISS SOME THINGS *******

If you missed part one you will be lost. The Hi res versions of both parts will be available next weekend on TMO-HI- res.com courtesy of Norrie.

First-Be sure to watch ALL the credits. Second-PLEASE DO NOT POST SPOILERS IN REVEIWS!!

Directors Note: This a slow paced film for a reason, to create a mood and setting, So this isn???t a full on action shoot em up, but of course there is action as the film goes on. There is no Thriller/Drama Genre and action is the best choice. So if that???s not your thing, this film might not be for you. If you don???t like slower paced story driven films, skip this one.

There are a few glitches. I tried many times to fix them, but the game is buggy. Sometimes a floor vanishes, but its hardly noticeable. Sometimes props vanish, it could not be helped. I cut and re cut this film 4 times to try and fix those issues to no avail. Sometimes the ambient sound drops out, this is a total mystery to me as the sound files did not overlap. I think it???s a conflict with dialog tracks.


The Story-

6 contestants on a reality show are living in a military bombshelter. When they start believe that the world above has destroyed itself, they soon learn that they don???t know what???s true and what???s not. They don't know anything! Has reality TV gone too far?

When is too much really too much? How would they know? Did the world finally slip into nuclear armageddon? When a cast member turns up dead, their whole world goes upside-down and no help arrives and thats when the reality begins???

When the paranoia and fear set in, everything changes in this tale of reality TV gone bad.

Turn up the volume and enjoy!

Part One left us after the cast discovered one of their own dead from a gunshot wound.

The VO's are meant to overlap and flow like real conversation, not just cut back and forth between talking heads, just so ya'll know!

Sisch

Special thanks to Rileyman for the fix for exporting. It seems to have worked and I got a solid export using it.

Special thanks to Norrie for hosting and keeping TMO-Hi-res.com and giving our films a home to be seen as they were meant to be.

This is for my outstanding cast who makes this chatty oddball film work. Without them, I got nuttin but pretty pictures. They own this film, they really bring it to life. I really owe them a lot.

Enjoy!

If there's one thing you're guaranteed with Jase180's films, it's an absorbing atmosphere as you are transported to a meticulously crafted world. The visuals, the editing, and the sound design all weave you into the story. The voice acting was terrific, as one would expect from the stars of TMO. Just an excellent use of the medium to suck the viewer into another time and place.

The request to leave out spoilers makes certain aspects of reviewing this difficult, but it's certainly understandable here...

On a purely personal taste level, I'm iffy on the ending. During and then later following one of the opening conversations, allow me to express what I was thinking while watching this film: "Ah -- I think I know where this is headed..." "Whoa..." "Holy smokes dude!" "What?! Man..." If there is any one thing the ending is *not*, it's predictable!

My reaction to the end notwithstanding (and my reaction wasn't "bad" -- just "hushed"), it was one hell of a ride on its way there. This movie, for me, is all about the atmosphere it generates. Between the dialog, sound effects, subtle music, camera-work, lighting, and overlays, everything comes together to provide real tension and a real thrill ride.

I did raise an eyebrow a bit at some of the way the characters came to their decisions, and reacted under pressure. If there was any potential benefit here to changes in the length of the film, it would be on the up-side. Any additional cutting to this film would have taken something away, I suspect, so I'm glad you went with the 2 parts.

The overlay work is very well done throughout the film... If there was any nitpick I might have along those lines, it would be with the night-vision goggles. The variations with the numbers changing is neat for the effect - though whenever I see that in movies I always wonder what practical purpose they serve. heh heh. Some sort of doppler radar to test the distance to the nearest solid surface? I might go check that out to see if goggles exist with that sort of feature. Anyway... If I were to incorporate variations like that, it might have instead been in giving a complete circle of compass positions. Then you could work out which way they're looking in each of the first-person shots and adjust accordingly. It'd be a heck of a lot of work to pull off, of course; especially for those shots where the camera moves. Not impossible, but also certainly not something that affects my rating -- just a neat idea for the extra pizzazz.

Any editing nitpicks I might have had are covered in your film description. Though I will stubbornly contend they can indeed all be fixed. ;) The only one that affects my rating in any tiny way is the ambient sound cutting out. I find the most reliable way of doing sound design is to avoid the sound effects track altogether. There are bugs in PP that can cause issues with over-use of the SFX track, or with sounds that last longer than a minute. Mix all your sound (music, ambience, and sfx) externally, one sound file per script scene, and exclusively use the music track -- and you'll find you have far fewer sound-related bugs to deal with.

So, a very enjoyable ride, excellent all-round production value, a slight eyebrow raised for believability, and a bit of a... hushed contentedness... with the ending, leads me to a low 5 stars.

Let's get the good bits out of the way first:

Firstly, the cast were excellent throughout both episodes - in particular Wes and Dulci's character. They were a joy to watch.

Secondly, the sound design and use of silence which accompanied many of the corridor shots - a lonely, eerie atmosphere was successfully created.

Thirdly, the set design.

Fourthly, the character design. The contrast in the characters was great.

Fifthly, the musical cues were well composed.

Ok.

With that out of the way, here are some problems in this film:

Right from the outset, I didn't buy the sudden paranoia of one of the characters and the unquestioning, accepting way the other characters bought into it.

I was, effectively, in the same room as those characters when Wes arrived late on the scene. Why would anyone suspect him? The harmless basketball-playing guy? (These are reality TV contestants who've been together for 78 days - they know him well enough by now)
The normal human emotion is to say nothing, or keep it under wraps until more proof is presented. Otherwise you yourself could become a suspect accused of trying to cover up your alleged crime by blaming somebody else.

The use of firearms was very unrealistic - the characters seemed to be far too at ease shooting randomly into dark spaces, when they've no idea who the target is!! There was no "monster" in this film - so wandering around with guns looking for one didn't ring true for me.
Put it this way, if I ever got an automatic rifle in my hands, even in desperate circumstances, I wouldn't pull that trigger unless something seriously life-threatening was about to happen. So when somebody in this film fired randomly into a dark corridor, I didn't buy it at all.

Music: In this episode, I just couldn't understand it. There's one climactic scene where the rather serene main theme comes in for no apparent reason (a theme that has been used at least 12 times in the two episodes). This theme did not in any way suit what was going on up onscreen. Most of the cues were overused over the two episodes, great cues as they were.

So, in summary, I liked alot of the technical work on this film, but the way the plot was realised didn't quite add up for me.

Well, I debated on how to rate this film, the star rating is for this installment, but I will comment on it as a whole (pt1 and 2) as I didn't get to part 1 until it was gone, and couldn't review. I also don't care for the mandatory 5 star, because something is good angle either. I think it detracts from the people who put in the extra effort, which you clearly did. I've fallen into that pit before myself, but keep trying to pull myself out. I will say that I think it was entertaining, and the overall quality is undeniable, but as the TMO movies come closer to the quality of "real" film I think the critiques have to move along with them as well in order for it to be meaningful. There were however a few things that I think detracted or failed to reach it's potential.

I'll start with the music. It's nice music (I liked it when I wrote it, and do listen to it from time to time), but it's in a bit of a raw state. Not the fault of the film maker, but the composer. In some instances it might work, but in the case of big flowing scores like this, I think it needs to have been engineered a bit better. There were a few spots where the editing of the music was a bit rough, ending abrubtly with a hard cut that didn't seem to fit. Also, the individual pieces, although creating a nice mood, seemed to appear too often (perhaps, because I've heard the peice so much before). Variations on it would have been nice to see, rather than the same piece, tempo, etc. This could just be because of my familiarity with the score, though.

Whereas I did enjoy the film, and I'll try not to give anything away, even though most people should have watched it by now, I didn't feel the level of suspense I expected to at the end. I think I missed a death in there somewhere as they comment on the method, but I didn't see it, and as it was unusual it probably should be in there (if it's not). I didn't feel that the characters really had that hard a time with what's going on around them, and were a bit to accepting of death. Not that everyone has to go around crying all the time, but at least one person should have a freak out session (it always adds to the tension). Nobody really seemed to crack under the pressure, or even display much tension. Which is probably why I didn't feel much in the end. The music does an acceptable job of helping build the mood, the sets and sound design were great, direction and editing, but I just didn't feel the tension from the characters that I would have hoped. I realize that the game is not especially suited for this genre, but I think you have enough creativity to counter it's shortcomings and deliver, given the time (and yes, I realize it's a game/hobby but I'm trying to be on the harder side of things here). The direction and editing was great, though, so I have to think that the problem, for me, originated more at the script level.

The editing was pretty tight, although there were a few spots where I might have changed it up a bit more, and not had the camera on the person who was talking, and maybe a couple more on the reactions. The sets were really amazing, and it's unfortunate that the ambient audio didn't cooperate all the time.

In the end a pretty darn good film (don't think I could have watched it that many times if it wasn't) but I would have liked to have seen the characters fall deeper into the depths of paranoia and desperation before the end. I'll definitely be awaiting the arrival of the hi-res version to add it to my collection, though.

Wow, you really set the atmosphere in this movie. The VOs were outstanding! I loved the overlays and free cam work. Everything about this movie fits so well togehter. As for the ending, I loved it. I sort of had it figured that's what happened, but the dialogue made me think that something else entirely had happened. Great films. I am proud to award both parts of BOMBSHELTER the "Frosted Award of Excellence" they deserve it.

It is very atmospheric. The music, the visual, and the sound effect work perfectly together to make a wonder! I loved the way you handled camera and sound effects. There�??s a lot to learn there. Mods are incredible as well. I cannot figure out how some of them were done.

More than anything else, what a concept! It�??s just mind boggling. Are you developing this into a full length script? It has such a great potential!

A big applause to everyone involved!

No spoilers, eh?

Suffice to say that this is one heck of a film. Great acting, directing, set design, score,dialogue, and story. It has a feel to it that's a little bit Aliens and a little bit Blair Witch interwoven with a whole lot of originality.

(Vague-ISH spoiler in this review!!!)

A very good and surprising conclusion! More or less all of the dissapointing and confusing aspects of the first part were fixed in the first few moments of this, leaving the rest of the movie to be a completely enjoyable flick. The ambience is so heavy that it it's practically a character in itself, with so many levels of intensity and believebleness (New word!). I was kind of suspecting the ending to be open-ended like that, but it was still so well done that it still managed to surprise me. The set dressing is by far the most stand-out feature in this flick, creating a sense of freshness like never before seen on TMO.

Unlike the previous film, this had absolutely no dissapointing or draging parts to it; THIS is obviously a movie by a proffesional like Jase180! An absolute five stars!

GREETINGS FROM L.M.A.O. STUDIOS!

A fantastic, jaw dropping thriller!

This conclusion to Jase180's Bombshelter not only surpasses the first installment with regards to completely unique cinematography and set design, but also explodes with a heart pumping climax that leaves you sitting in you chair in disbelief. I needed a cigarette and I don't even smoke.

The script is smart and cleaver. You think you know whats going on? You think you got all the answers? Think again. Jase knows how to rise above the clichés of the typical plot and thrill the viewers with fresh and realistic dialog, married with suspense that leaves you guessing until the very end. For a TMO film maker to achieve something of that caliber, is a rarity and deserves the praise it is receiving.

Just like the first installment, the actors gave exceptional performances. Again, the multi character scenes really stand out from other films do to the natural flow of overlapping dialog that other TMO films are afraid to attempt. Actor direction and script writing of that magnitude, is how you captivate the viewer.

The cinematography sets a very surreal tone of abandonment and isolation with marvelous Kubrick'ish long pan shots, but then also delivers fast pace action sequences with multi-scene quick shots. For a film to be able to be able to achieve both with such professionalism, is just great film making. Loved the shots in the engine room and the flare overlay.

The sound effect in this part are far more utilized than the first. Every scene was either filled with tantalizing ambiance or a musical score that gave the depth of emotion. Well done!

Set design? Wow! Seriously, we have never seen such painstaking detail to set dressing in a TMO film. Jase, along with his modder counterparts, created a completely unique world that is so amazing, we occasionally forgot to pay attention to the film itself. Lol The sets themselves, in many aspects, ARE characters in the film that deliver performances needed to pull off the sense of a vastness and the feeling that anything could be around the next corner. So I say again, wow.

The ending? Well, all we can say is....brilliant Jase.

Overall, Bombshelter is not just a film to watch, but a thrill ride to experience! Our hats are off to Jase and all involved. One of the best films to hit TMO!

I am left speechless by this amazing film. I thought that nothing could outdo the terrific Dead Cases, but this has proved me wrong. The wonderful voice acting, superb music,and amazing direction has created a TMO masterpiece that will not be forgotten. I cannot wait for the next film by the great Jase180

Wow, wow, wow, and... uh... wow!

First off the cast: You certainly got the best of the best. Dulci was fantastic, Sisch was superb, Tre was treriffic, A_N_D was excellent, and Sparky was sparktastic!

Now the mods, oh boy. Really what more is there to say, but uh...awesome?

EmeraldEdge did a fantastic job on the music, props to EE.

Really there isn't much more to say, but spot on Jase! Spot on!

Great tale of paranoia that was captivating and well executed. Kudos
to the cast as these were wordy and demanding proles to play.
The story was well written and the dialogue was fresh and believable.

You mentioned sound glitches in your movie description.
Sound glitches were minor, you also mentioned overlapping sounds that cut off etc.
If you could do a sub-mix offline using say.. Protools, tweek each and every sound you hear and then re-load it as one perfectly blended file,(or 2) complete with all the EQ and Reverb necessary, it would ceratinly resolve some of these sound issues and ultimately give you a better mix overall.

Very entertaining stuff Jase, very nicely done!

Amazing, just amazing. So much work has gone into this and it shows. The set construction is absolutely breathtaking, really gives the feeling they are in a bunker complex. The dialogue was excellent with lot of great interaction between the characters plus the excellent VA's. The free-cam mixed with overlays was great and to cap it off it is a very atmospheric setting (loved the metallic sound effects), the slow pacing keeping you hanging eagerly awaiting the next second of film.

Its a totally gripping second part to Bombshelter, I was hooked from start to finish.
Strider Out!

Great performances from all the cast! Seriously outstanding. Great dialog and acting. This is such a gripping film and even gets your heart pumping! So effing amazing. Great set dressing and nice effects and to top it off a superb ending.

Overall a effing superb effing film (now thats a lot of effing...) such a masterpiece...I could put the f word (or effing) nearly in front of every word because this movie is so effing good. Ok, I'll stop...but congrats Jase for a great series, you have done well.

My first review didn't turn out right. So I decided to make a short review.
Bombshelter-Part2b was an excellent movie with a lot of suspense and much anticipation on whats gonna happen next. The camerawork was amazing as well as the set dressing which made me think "Wow, how the heck did he do that?" Although the first-person shots were kinda slow I really enjoyed them. My heart was beating fast during those scenes. The nightvision overlay was really cool. The custom weapons were awesome. Everything in this movie was superb. 5 STARS!

Bombshelter is without doubt your best work to date...I liked the Dead Cases, but Bombshelter is a whole lot more.

It's as atmospheric and moody as it is aggressive and in-your face, and that comes from both the spot-on writing/directing and the acting of your excellent cast. I expect no less from you on the writing/directing side, and I can't really say I expect any less from the cast - they're the A-list, and if you had any doubts why, watch this film.

Amazing work, as you well know....enjoy the acclaim....before you know it, the masses will be at the gates, demanding more.

Wow. Woah.. Woaaahhhhh... Damn!
Those were my reactions as I watched this gripping, suspenseful, atmospheric thriller unfold right until the heart-pounding, sweat-drenching end. What a fantastic finale that ended the right way. The film pokes questions at you the whole way through, and I came up with many theories during the course of the film, but they were all proved wrong, which goes to show how well you did in writing a believable and thought provoking script.

Not even my crappy 6-star award does this justice, but it deserves it anyway.

Creeping and crawling; Bombshelter is my favorite reality T.V. series ever!

Bring on season two eh =D

I'm not a fan of leaving short reviews, but I can't think of anything more then everyone else has already said.

This is truly a TMO landmark, with both films together. It is a shame the first had to go down to release the second. I am quite confident it could have taken an award for top charts, and opened the space for this second part.

This is one of my three absolute favorite series on TMO.

This is like the ultimate cross between suspense, horror, and sci-fi. The voice actors have been brilliant throughout the entire two-part film. Seriously though, I really have fallen in LOVE with this film, it is so pefect on every level.

Not even 1 star ninjas could give this any lower than a 5. :-)

Ahhh, so it was the Butler - i knew it - so obvious. Whats that?......Oh really?.......Hmmm, i think i'd better watch this again more closely!

Awesome conclusion to a truely original and inspired movie. Your writing gives depth to the plot and the life to the characters as well as a unique athmosphere and sense of claustrophobic abandonment. It was a pleasure to be a part of this project. Congrats to Jase and all involved.

AMAZNG!!!!!

I have zero complaints here! It was so perfect! I felt like it was real- like I was actually there! And the music! Talk about suspenceful! Wowowowowow!

Don't even get me started on the ending :P

I'll be thinking about this one all day! I was actually sweating and nervous as the movie drew near the end!

Setdressing, VO's, and all other technical aspects were superb! I could watch this movie over and over and over and over!

First off, and at the risk of repeating myself, I LOVED the set designs in this film! I WANT THEM!! :)

A very atmospheric movie... where many other movie makers make long films with a lot of needless scenes, you show how it's done properly, with great camera angles, just the right sound and music, etc, etc. You build the tension very nicely.

I wasn't sure I liked the ending... until the very end. Masterful. I won't say another word. :)

Oh alright, one more word: FANTASTIC!

A solid continuaton of this engaging thriller. Great VO performances and a gritty storyline that has an original ending. I loved your use of sound effects used to create an engrossing atmosphere although I felt there were some volume issues with vo's and weapon effects.

Great Set Design, Pacing and Storytelling make Bombshelter a must see for all TMO'ers!

Until the next time buddy,

Nuke Well in the Bombshelter!!!

A lesbian scene? Did I miss something here!?? I sure did.

Jase you have done a extremely well made piece here. This is such a trycky film to shoot, but you manage to keep it fresh and engaging which for I have to commend you. There was a lot of things that I feel was a bit unjustified but you know that when it comes down to it I really dont care. For I really got something from watching this. And thats something. :))

Suspense! Paranoia!

Once again I have to congratulate you for the sense of vastness and emptiness of the setting of this movie - watching this, you really get the feeling of being in the Bombshelter, I love those slow panning shots and the stills, they created a unique atmosphere! For me, the ending worked just great - and I'm not going to say more - no spoilers!
Great vo's again, the sound and image fx was just wonderful and enhanced the feeling of unease even more, and EE's music is eerie and beautiful at the same time!

Great work Jase!

Wow, that was bloody fanastic. Already the concept is a winner. In the whole movie there are three important questions? Is it real? Who is the murderer? And who will survive?

This was technical very impressive, already the Sound Design cares for an intensive atmosphere. But not only the visual impression and the nearly perfect sound (Voice Actors are all freakin' awesome!), the script is so damn written thrilling with genius dialogues (I loved A_N_Ds line with "and killer among us" e.g.) and a tension which just doesn't let you go anymore.
Great twist at the final end, I liked that a lot, gave the whole situation a very senseless touch.

Bombshelter ftw!

After you play the game for a while you start to know the animations, scenes and positions that a character can take part in. Occasionally someone puts a new twist on things we all shake our heads in wonder but for the most part we largely know what to expect. For this reason, tension is very hard to pull of in a tmo movie. Here you have pulled off a certain level of tension with largely successful results. However, it is not the type of tension that comes from creepy music as you wait for the zombie to leap out at the audience. This is more the type of tension that comes from staring into the water waiting to catch a glance at Nessie. Its the waiting for that ah-ha moment where everything falls into place.

The dual mystery sequences are handled very well axs we wonder the who and what below as well as above. In the end I was able to figure out the ending of one situation (and thats kind of the point of watching/reading something like this) and was very pleased with the way both resolutions were handled. A very good job all the way through. I wouldnt expect this to exist in the wheelhouse for all viewers but I enjoyed the experience.

yeah, pretty good conclusion. You still suffer from the "scratch head then lean" problem which, with some careful editing, could be edited out alot more. Enjoyable for the most part.

But what was with the lesbian scene with dulci's character and sisch's character all about? Anyway, nicely done.

Hmm. Very Intersting. The tension was great indeed, culimating to a fast paced conclusion!

Well the NO SPOILER REVIEW restricts some of my comments.
The dialogue was great and actually made me cheer for one of the characters. I thought some of the characters actions were forced however for the sake of the story.
A couple things that took me out of the story. The night vision goggles overlay was a great addition, I would have added a couple others that so that it wouldn't seem they were always going w to nw in direction.
And a pool of blood that appeared in one scene but an alternate view wasn't there.

An engaging story that provided some great tension!

Suspense is the order of the day and " Bombshelter " has it in spades. A brilliant thriller that kept me on the edge of my seat. At certain points in the film I gasped with shock and the ending was chilling.

The sound work in this film is so wonderful and I can't say enough about how it creeped me out. Spooky, and thrilling.

Great acting by all the voice actors really sold the film as well. Wonderful editing of the highest caliber also made the film more than special. The music also was perfect for this film. But it all comes down to a great screenplay and in the hands of Jase it was rendered to film masterfully.

Thanks Jase for taking me into your haunted house of reality horror!
