Joe Lynch Directs Ryan Kwanten in the Venom Fan Film You Need to See


Based heavily on the 1992 Belgian black comedy Man Bites Dog, in which a film crew followed a serial killer around – for kids my age, watching it was one of those key moments when we realized “foreign” didn’t have to mean “arthouse drama” when it came to movies – #TRUTHINJOURNALISM is producer Adi Shankar’s follow-up to the Punisher fan film #DIRTYLAUNDRY with Thomas Jane. (In addition to MBD, there are heavy nods to American Psycho and Behind the Mask: the Rise of Leslie Vernon)

Kwanten’s Eddie Brock is certainly no Topher Grace. I’d prefer the film weren’t so directly copying an existing movie – for a while it had me wondering if it was simply a clever redub – but I like the tone and look quite a bit.

It’s worth the 17 minutes of your time it’ll take – the ending pays off nicely, and is very much its own thing. Click the jump to watch.
