Here are some kind words from reviewers about THE EDGE OF REALITY:
" If you like TALES FROM THE CRYPT, TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE and other such anthologies, Joe Bagnardi's EDGE OF REALITY is sure to please... ...we were thrilled to see it proven that a great homage film to such a beloved era can be made on a low budget... How refreshing! Now this is filmmaking we like to see." - themonsterclub.com
" The directing and writing of the stories were great. The directing was sharp and it showed through the style of shots and camera angles used."
- The Horror Review
" THE EDGE OF REALITY gives us just what we've been lacking since they quit making the Twilight Zone episodes... ...better than one would expect with the sound quality good and a great picture. But that has a lot to do with the nice editing job of Kirkendall. THE EDGE OF REALITY is a must see for any fan of old Twilight Zone or Night Gallery episodes. All around, an excellent flick for the horror genre." - Unspeakable Magazine
(Click here to read the full archived movie review from Unspeakable Magazine - PDF format)
" ...I was not disappointed. In the tradition of The Outer Limits, Night Gallery and the eternal Twilight Zone, The Edge of Reality presents us with creepy setting, eerie stories and some of the darkest humor you can imagine... All in all, an excellent way to spend an hour or so. It is also an excellent teaching tool for new filmmakers." - PenguinComics.net
About the "Dead Man" segment:
" I really liked this one. The setting was perfect, the actors did their jobs competently and the special effects, while minimal were very well done... Use what you have on hand, and make it look right and work. In DEAD MAN, Director Joe Bagnardi did just that." - PenguinComics.net
" The first story, DEAD MAN was our favorite. It's sheer creepiness when a sheriff's body won't stay buried... despite a number of attempts..."
About "The Maze" segment:
" THE MAZE was wonderfully suspenseful, yet harked back to a TWILIGHT ZONE "style lesson in morality" type tale."
Click here to read some background information from director Joe Bagnardi on THE EDGE OF REALITY (PDF format).
Here are some kind words from reviewers about THE DROWNED:
" THE DROWNED is a very low-budget movie but one that’s done right."

Here are some kind words from reviewers about Polonia Brothers Entertainment's JURASSIC PREY:
"For the uninitiated, Mark Polonia is the king of SOV... Kirkendall is superb here, with his character trading on a career defining role as Kid Crackshot on the lame-o TV show Crack Commandos twenty-five years ago... At just over an hour, Jurassic Prey is a brisk and enjoyable venture into modern-day regional filmmaking." - DTV Junkyard (#98)
"...Jurassic Prey is more of the same cheesy fun that you’ve come to expect! Surprisingly, Jurassic Prey‘s has some fantatic stop-motion dinosaur effects... It might not be for everyone but I had a LOT of fun watching Jurassic Prey (as I have done with other recent Mark Polonia films released in the UK)." - Nerdly
"If nothing else, this movie has made me very curious to see more films by Mark Polonia and his crew. Careful, or you too may fall prey to Polonia's spell..." - John Migliore, indiehorroronline (blog)

- Tim O'Donnell - Vimeo-On-Demand review 12/11/17
Here are some kind words from reviewers about Polonia Brothers Entertainment's EMPIRE OF THE APES:
"Hee hee, ha ha haaa! Listen, sure it's a low budget B-Movie BUT--it actually beats Tim Burton's Step-Child of the Classic Ape Movies easily! Even the New Movie Series doesn't possess half the fun of an all-female starship of galactic babes! Pure fun, Retro-laden nostalgic goodness! (Available on eBay too!) "Get your D***N dirty paws off me, you stinkin' apes!" - prince everlove - YouTube comment December 2017.
"Trask was the stand out. Jeff Kirkendall was fun to watch and a really great performance."
- Phil Herman - Writer, Producer & Director (about Empire of the Apes and the sequel Revolt of the Empire of the Apes).
Here are some kind words from reviewers about Polonia Brothers Entertainment's REVOLT OF THE EMPIRE OF THE APES:
"As far as Planet of the Apes knock-offs go, Revolt of the Empire of the Apes is pretty wonderful. It's very very rare that I'm not happy with a Mark Polonia movie, so it should come as no shock to me that I liked it. Jeff Kirkendall stole the show as always!"
- Seb Godin - Actor, Writer & Producer
"Jeff Kirkendall is a stand out and a joy to watch."
- Phil Herman - Writer, Producer & Director
FROZEN SASQUATCH (2018) (Horror) - Scientists and doctors hunt and capture one of the elusive snow Sasquatch creatures. A serum perfected by the scientists makes the Sasquatch grow to gargantuan size and the team must fight the snow monster to the death and save the world.
Here are some kind words from reviewers about Polonia Brothers Entertainment's FROZEN SASQUATCH:
"Watched Mark Polonia's new movie Frozen Sasquatch and really enjoyed it! Solid micro-budget creature feature fun. My one big complaint? It needed more Jeff Kirkendall!" - Seb Godin - Actor, Writer & Producer
"FROZEN SASQUATCH is a different approach about the legend of the Yeti... Character actor Jeff Kirkendall and all around fun person lends his talents as one of the scientists experimenting on these legendary creatures... This is not another Sasquatch on a rampage movie, but a movie with more development focused on the Sasquatch and its origins. It’s not what you expect and will be surprised. I like Mark Polonia movies he pays homage to classic flicks and applies a 70’s feel to them. He does not take himself seriously and in turn gives us entertaining fun movies." - Amazon customer 7/22/18
"Mark Polonia has cranked out more micro-budget movies than just about anyone on the planet, and Frozen Sasquatch is a solid and welcome entry into his canon. The story of people investigating a troubled and abandoned research base draws some parallels to the plot of The Thing, and the reveal of the creatures origin at the end is unexpected and a ton of fun.
Special mention should be made here to Titus Himmelberger and Natalie Hallead, who do a great job carrying the movie. Polonia regulars Steve Diasparra, Jeff Kirkendall, and Jaimie Morgan all pop in and deliver fun performances as well.
These kinds of micro-budget movies aren’t for everyone, but for those who enjoy these kinds of movies, this is a totally fun monster adventure. One of Mark Polonia’s best recent movies for producer David Sterling. If you like to have fun while you watch movies, you’ll have a blast!" - Amazon customer 7/24/18
"Frozen Sasquatch" is the newest production from filmmakers Mark Polonia and David Sterling. With a fun, B-movie plot and a neat looking creature, this is a fun popcorn movie from beginning to end. Polonia does a nice job capturing the suspense and his cast, including film veteran Jeff Kirkendall, all give energetic performances. Looking forward to seeing what else Polonia and Sterling have in the pipeline."
- Amazon customer 7/21/18
"It's ambitious, fun, creative and has furry monsters and a bit of blood. Perfect for switching off the real world for awhile and enjoying a film like you used to as a kid when you stayed up past your bedtime. ...Cast regular for these films, Jeff Kirkendall, makes an appearance and it's solid as always." - Free and Indie Cinema Movie Reviews
"This one was fun. If you dig low budget movies then I say check this one out." - Gutmunchers Lives
"Kudos to the Polonia brothers and the fine cast in delivering a very entertaining horror film." - Zisi Emporium for B Movies
Here are some kind words from reviewers about JB Productions' PROJECT D: CLASSIFIED:
"Jeff Kirkendall does an excellent job in his role of Astronaut Brent Taylor. His first appearance is very sympathetic and he carries that through most of the film. ...For the most part the core cast is pretty solid with Jeff Kirkendall, as I mentioned, giving a stand out performance as the sympathetic man made monster. ...So, a familiar but CLASSIC story with some neat modern twists, a mixed bag of acting, f/x and action and a sense of self-aware humor throughout. What more can you ask for?" - Free and Indie Cinema Movie Reviews
ALIEN SURVEILLANCE (2018) (Sci-Fi / Horror) - An alien invasion is caught in the surveillance cameras of an office building during a weekend work party. I play Lawrence Singleton, the person the party is being held for. This unique movie splits the screen into four sections, representing the four cameras. IMDb Page Trailer Sale Page - Amazon (DVD) Sale Page - Amazon Video
ROBOWAR (formerly Battle Bots) (2018) (Sci-Fi / Action) - A futuristic Sci-Fi adventure about a group of freedom fighters battling The New World Order, a fanatical cult using service robots to enslave the population after a nuclear war. I play Caesar, the ruthless leader of The New World Order.

About 3 To Murder:
"This one is short but it packs a punch... And the twist at the end was great. Stick around after the credits..."
(And from Facebook) "3 To Murder was great!... Just finished The Temptress and that was great too! The vampire girls were all fantastic! "
- James Kelly, New Jersey
" I finished TEMPTRESS and must say I was very impressed. I thought it was well directed and shot and acted. It had a nice pacing and you have a really good style. It really draws you into the story... that is a solid, well made film. " - Mark Polonia, Polonia Bros. Entertainment

"A great micro-budget indie horror flick: ...Jeff Kirkendall has put together a real gem here. The Directing, Editing, and Camera work are top notch for the genre, the 4 vignettes are fun throwbacks to the old horror anthology films like Creepshow and Tales from the Crypt, and there's a nice variety presented here." - joerasputin - IMDb User Review, 2/22/19
