Shots in the Dark #

Released 1/30/2009

Description: Shots in the Dark is a snapshot of the actual controversy surrounding vaccination. Although controversy over vaccinations is not new, actual childhood immunization schedules contain twice the amount of vaccines compared to 25 years ago, with multiple vaccines given simultaneously being the norm. In addition, elements used in the preparation of vaccines such as mercury and aluminum have not been inspected for security in humans since the early 1920’s. These facts, along with the increase in diagnosed situations of autism spectrum disorders and learning disabilities, coupled with the striking similarity in parental and physician post vaccination observations, direct the film’s exploration of the contention between government agencies, legal authorities, watchdog associations, drug companies, physicians, parents, and children.

Razing the Bar: A Documentary About the Funhouse Reviews:

This was a very mammoth project for a first time director. The making of this movie ran a very high risk of offending and disappointing a fair amount of folks who fell in love with this club that was demolished in early 2013. I think that Ryan Worsely fully captured the history and spirit of the stage that cub owner and booker Brian Foss continues to foster and promote.It is especially inspiring and to note that this movie was also produced with a budget of only $8,000, reflecting Brian Foss's ethos of "embrace failure", by doing what you wish in life without worrying about the consequences of not succeeding. Worsely relates this environment of freedom, acceptance and experimentation went on to support spawn many more successful bands, performers and a roller derby league. In short, this is a nice snapshot of Seattle's history that I hope will see a fresh chapter.


I know the Funhouse, and a lot of the people who ran, played, and hung out there. I had no concept what to expect this movie to be like, another than I was certain that on some level, I'd be disappointed. Man was I wrong! "Razing The Bar" captures the essence of the zone PERFECTLY. Ryan Worsley clearly spent a lot of time not only doing her homework on the place, and the folks who named it home, but emphasized the FUN part of the equation. She really got to the heart of the storyline of this amazing, but doomed nightspot. There are a lot of touching moments in this film, which you wouldn't really expect in a pic about a punk club. There are also an astounding number of funny bits to be found.Funhouse was never about "Rock Stars", and you won't search any here. At Funhouse, everyone - whether on scene or off, was a rock star in their own way. There was literally zero separation between fanatic and artist, and this movie does the near impossible job of making that notion true to the viewer.I highly recommend, "Razing The Bar" not only to ALL rock melody fans, but to anyone who appreciates a storyline about a bunch of lovable misfits trying to create their method in a globe doing it's greatest to squeeze them out of existence. Also, this movie could be needed viewing for anyone starting a band, and even more so, anyone who runs / ebooks / works at a club. Funhouse was the rare venue that got it right, and, "Razing The Bar" is the rare rock documentary that gets it right.


"Razing The Bar" is an amazing, touching, insightful and often hilarious documentary about the life and death of Seattle's beloved punk rock bar, The Funhouse. It's a pretty movie that lovingly portrays the gritty and giddy reality of what a functioning underground melody stage looks like, but also digs deeper into the more universal problems of what the larger affects of involvement with such an artistic community has on people's lives over time. Even more, it sounds an necessary warning bell about the threats that rampant, unthinking gentrification poses to territories like this that breed the culture and vitality that attract folks to a town like Seattle in the first place. While Seattle enshrines and mummifies its storied past as a "Music City" across the road at an antiseptic tomb like the EMP, it does nothing to preserve the kinds of territories that once allowed young, poor, desperate, vital musicians to create that type of culture in the first place, a culture that "Razing The Bar" captures perfectly.This movie is actually working its method into the festival circuit, and if you have a possibility to see it, regardless of your town or your background, it's not to be missed.
