Following the success of their first feature film (Red Eye), the immensely passionate and talented Tristan Clay and Destinie Orndoff of Deranged Minds Entertainment have begun crowdfunding for their next feature, Inverted.

What is Inverted?

Synopsis:

In a world paralleling the 70’s, a centuries-old cult known as the “Inverts” kidnap four individuals against their will to recruit for the holy war against the second coming of Christ. From a homosexual hippie, drug- addicted prostitute, man in drag, and a pedophile priest; they’re all deemed to be choice victims to invert through various initiations that push past the most brutal of boundaries.

Although this is an indie film, Clay and Orndoff have snagged some pretty recognizable names. Inverted is set to star Destinie Orndoff (Red Eye), Trevor Dow (Rise), Jennifer Nangle (Irrational Fear), Lynn Lowry (The Crazies), David McMahon (Rogue Island), Tommie Vegas (Party Night) and Maria Olsen (Lords of Salem).

Clay and Orndoff had this to say about the film:

“With this film, our main goal isn’t only to deliver an insanely intense, horrific piece of cinema; but to improve from our past work. To the character development, how we present our story, the special effects, everything. We promise to bring you a horror film, made by horror fans. We have learned so much since we shot our first feature and want to make Inverted go above and beyond.”

The chosen platform is Indiegogo. Like all other crowdfunding projects, there are loads of perks; everything from t-shirts, DVDs and Blu-rays to parts in the film. Inverted has a flexible goal of $17,666. With a month left on the campaign, the film is 3% funded with $443 of the total goal.  Backers can be assured that 100% of the funds will go directly to the film as the creators have provided a breakdown of where your donations are going.

Makeup Review: Medusa’s Make-Up Triple X Lipstick

The makeup world is one that is thoroughly saturated by companies that promise their products are the next best thing and often times are not what they advertise. Big industry makeup companies over charge and frequently offer repackaged versions of older products that they promise are cruelty free and or vegan (many times they are not), but there are a host of independent companies popping up to offer better products for a much better price, and one of those companies is Medusa’s Make-Up. The makeup that they offer is 100% vegan AND cruelty free. Medusa’s Make-Up offers 12 vibrant lipstick shades; the shade in the spotlight is Triple X– a super bright pink shade.

Packaging is a major selling point for any product, but the makeup industry leaves a great deal more room for design creativity. Medusa’s Make-Up offers sleek black packaging with their logo in gold. The artwork on the lipstick tube is simplistic yet unique.

Bright pink lip shades can be a hard craft to master; they turn out either gaudy and overly pigmented or too opaque, there never seems to be a happy medium. Triple X however has the balance that is frequently missing. It is a vibrant bright, borderline neon pink, but it is still everyday wearable. In terms of comparison, it is an affordable dupe for MAC’s Candy Yum-Yum (Triple X is cruelty free and vegan whereas MAC products are not, so added bonus).

Nothing is worse than stick lipstick that applies greasy looking or makes your lips look like they are dry and cracking. The finish after application is neither matte or gloss, it is a nice combination of the two. Triple X is smooth and creamy without the greasy, sticky aftermath. It seems to have conditioning properties leaving lips feeling smoother after removable than before application; likely due to the vegan ingredients.

There is only minor transfer after application; it leaves a small trace but won’t come off completely or leave you looking like Pennywise or someone’s crazy grandma. Wear time, depending on whether lips are primed and the lipstick is set with other products and how much eating and drinking you are doing, is roughly a couple hours without reapplication (it will last longer obviously if set).

Anyone who has ever purchased makeup, lip products in particular, knows just how expensive they can be. It is not uncommon to walk in and drop $25 or more on a single lipstick. Triple X is only $12, roughly half the cost of most high-end brands.

All in all, Triple X by Medusa’s Make-Up is a solid product that is well worth the mere $12 you’d pay. Great quality for a great price is nothing to complain about.
