For those of you less versed in fan stuff: a ‘mix tape’ is where some crackpot takes all the best/worst/funniest bits of various films and sticks them together to form one movie.
The Abortion Bin
Abortion Bin Productions have released several films, and books, and I think the mix tape is their way of getting some free promotion? But I’m not 100% sure of that as there is very little mention of the mix tape on their official website.
The mix tape was created by the good folks at Abortion then placed on ‘Tracker 3’* for people to download if they were crazy enough to want it. That’d be me then.
The good thing about this mix tape is that it does not take itself, or the films shown, seriously. The tape starts with a warning that the film is rated PG for Pure Garbage, and is spoken with a Speedy Gonzales type accent, nice.
Some of the scenes are genuinely disturbing, such as the screen above, of the girl cutting off her bottom lip with a pair of scissors. Ouch!
Other scenes are comical and obviously taken from old 80’s movies, some are taken from (I assume) amateur film maker films (above) and some are definitely take from porn movies (see? I know some of the clips!)
I’ve seen quite a few mix tapes in the past, most use really bad, grainy footage of death scenes. This one is different in that the majority of the scenes are of good quality (the image below being one of the exceptions) and aren’t just cheap real-death clips that have been on the internet for years.
The Abortion Bin Mix Tape Vol.1 gets two thumbs up for:
- not taking itself (or the films) seriously
- not going for cheap shock tactics, and:
- for having excellent picture quality.
Seek it out with all due haste!
And give the folks a visit at http://www.freewebs.com/abortionbin, they’ve done several other (non-mixtape) films which might tickle your fancy, and deserve donations/purchases.
