Many of you may not remember all the way back to last September when I published a little article about a brand-new horror/comedy that was written, produced, directed, and also stars two local Chicago area comedians, John Laflamboy and Mike Bradecich.
Okay, you are forgiven. In an entertainment rich environment, over-run with comedy/zombie movies and comedy/monster movies, it can be hard to keep them all straight. They do all seem to get jumbled together in our noggins making it hard to remember just which one is which.
Well, amidst all these movies, that seem to be the same movie with different actors, comes a film that, from the trailer, looks as if it may be very funny and very entertaining. I am, of course, talking about Laflamboy and Bradecich's movie, "The Mole Man Of Belmont Avenue".
What you have with "Mole Man" is a great collection of odd-balls who all live in a run-down apartment building together. There is a hooker with dreads, a guy who seems to wear a football uniform, complete with helmet,all the time, a crazy old lady who won't shut-up, the buildings two bumbling supers (Laflamboy and Bradecich) and Freddy Krueger.......okay, Robert Englund playing a crotchety old guy.
What is the problem with apartment building, besides nutty neighbors, you may ask?
Well, it seems that all of the residents pets are starting to disappear. Doesn't sound like that big of a problem, probably nothing to worry about. Ah, but there isn't a Korean restaurant around for miles.
Hmmm......maybe something more sinister is to blame? Maybe a Mole Man?
Enough of my banter, the film looks really funny, and Laflamboy and Bradecich, look a little like America's answer to Simon Pegg and Nick Frost......maybe a little too much like them?
In fact, I could easily see Pegg and Frost in this one. Well, maybe if it gets remade in the UK, or something.
Here's the trailer:
