Here are some pull quotes from our first review on the awesome DREAD CENTRAL:

“One thing I did not expect…was that this…would turn out to be an intentional comedy.”

“Even when they’re engaged in hand-to-hand combat against terrorists or fighting for their lives against behemoth bugs, you can count on the brave men and women of Comic Relief Team 6 to spout off one-liners in the heat of battle.”

Also, here is the Thai DVD release front and back cover of THE VORTEX. Not sure if this is a legit release as the cast list includes both actor and character names pulled from an early iteration of IMDB before lead cast was in correct order. Still the art is pretty darn cool:
