    Haven't seen the movie, but I'm pretty sure the the 'magazines' attach to what you called a 'manifold.' I'm just guessing from the shape and the fact that there are four of them and four holes.

    A buddy of mine recently bought the full Spectral outfit and one of the stunt plasma rifles at an auction - two of us spent half an hour getting him into it at Manchester FTLOSF so he could strut around. Very well made that's for sure.

    Loved the movie. The creator has commented that a lot of it was really stretching it, but it was less about the spectral mcguffin thing and more about the scientific method. There have been comparisons to Aliens, but as you may have noticed, this movie, even tho it's suspense horor, does not rely on the characters being bumbling trigger happy idiots. They were competent professionals that are genuinely in over their heads, where, doing their best and failing, rather running around with like chickens with their heads chopped off, sat down and figured out what the fuck was going on and what they can do with what they know.
    If you're interested in suspense/horror, but hate the trope of an airhead opening an obviously dangerous door, or get high blood from seeing the klutz that keeps tripping over for no reason, or the frustration from watching a guy walk backwards into danger, if you hate all that, this movie is for you!

    Adam, great film as usual. I would especially like to say bravo to your cohost for hold his finger off the trigger while holding the plasma rifle. May be fake but the rules still hold. Good job!

    They spent more time and money making RUBBER renditions of tactical helms you could have bought for half of what they made them for.

  • Jack-O-Lantern

    the helmet is actually not a bike helmet, its a Airsoft style helmet with custom attachments but i could be wrong as it doesn't seem as thick, the same goes for them military style trousers n shirt with the pads, to help for easier and quicker movement but if you need to go on your knee quickly or prone you don't hurt your knees or elbows
