Laura Hypponen's ‘Quadraturin’ to have World Premiere at Tampere Film Festival

Film noir adaptation of Soviet author Sigizmund Krzhizhanovsky’s fantasy short stars Brit Edward Franklin (Dr. Thorne, Brain Hack) and features cameos from an international ensemble cast including Jeff Fahey (Lost, Miami Vice, Lawnmower Man), Branko Tomovic (Fury, 24: Live Another Day), Neil Bell (Dead Man’s Shoes) and Olga Fedori (Holby City, Wolfman). The darkly humorous story follows Sutulin, a law-abiding resident of a cramped communal flat, as he experiments with a room-enlarging miracle substance, Quadraturin – with unexpected results. “We are incredibly proud and excited for Quadraturin to receive its world premiere at this prestigious A-list event. We can’t wait to share it with audiences in Finland and beyond” says London-based Finnish director Laura Hypponen. Producer Patrick Hart of Ain’t Transcending Enterprises says: “After reading Krzhizhanovsky’s...

Blu-ray Reviews: Darkman II: The Return Of Durant and Darkman III: Die Darkman Die

  • DailyDead
When Sam Raimi directed the original Darkman back in 1990, it was an impressive feat, especially for the time: he created a big-screen superhero out of whole cloth—part comic book, part Universal monster, part Gaston Leroux, part ’80s action movie. It’s the kind of movie that should have launched a host of sequels—or, even better, a weekly series—but because of Sam Raimi’s own difficulties in making the film and because of the box office climate of the time, it didn’t happen. Not right away, at least.

Unwilling to let a potentially lucrative property disappear, Universal did put a pair of direct-to-video sequels into production in 1995. Though Raimi did not return to direct, he did remain on board as an executive producer, with directing duties on both movies turned over to Bradford May. The first of the sequels, 1995’s Darkman II: The Return of Durant recasts

Must Watch: Official Trailer for Robert Rodriguez's 'Alita: Battle Angel'

"It's a harsh world. The strong prey on the weak down here." Whoa. You have to see this! After almost a decade in development, Robert Rodriguez finally went off and made James Cameron's adaptation of Alita: Battle Angel, based on the popular manga series. 20th Century Fox has debuted the first trailer for Alita: Battle Angel, about a deadly cyborg humanoid named Alita, played by Rosa Salazar, who is found in a scrap heap by Dr. Dyson Ido. Rodriguez used James Cameron and Laeta Kalogridis' script that has been floating around for years, and Cameron is also a producer along with Jon Landau. So this still has the James Cameron touch (since he was originally supposed to direct), but Rodriguez is at the helm instead. The film's full cast includes Jennifer Connelly, Eiza González, Michelle Rodriguez, Christoph Waltz, Jackie Earle Haley, Jeff Fahey, Mahershala Ali, Ed Skrein, and Casper Van Dien.

Worst Stephen King Movies of All Time

Worst Stephen King Movies of All Time
Two months after The Dark Tower stunk up the multiplex, It came along and reminded all of us that it's possible to adapt a Stephen King story in a way that can be embraced by audiences and critics, to the tune of new box-office records, even. There are quite a few good films as you can see in our best Stephen King movies list. But while that may be true, there are probably more that just haven't hit the mark.

It's almost hard to blame Hollywood for getting it wrong so often, simply because there have been so many attempts at adaptations from wildly diverse source material, tackled by filmmakers with wide ranging levels of talent. Stanley Kubrick, Frank Darabont, Brian De Palma. There have been some real heavy hitters who have smartly adapted the work of our favorite Maine based ultra prolific author. But for every Stand By Me,

Catalog From The Beyond: Psycho II (1983) and Psycho III (1986)

  • DailyDead
This month marks the one-year anniversary of Catalog from the Beyond! I thank those of you who have followed along with my inane babbling for the last twelve months, and to celebrate, I’ve decided to do an extra large edition featuring not one, but two movies that I’ve been circling since I started this column. I’ve said before that I was a latecomer to the Psycho franchise, with my rationale being that the movie was so ingrained in pop culture that I assumed I knew what it had to offer without needing to actually watch it. Now, of course, I know that I was very wrong. But after finally coming to my senses, I subsequently noticed a sizable portion of the horror community that also sings the praises of the two sequels that it spawned in 1983 and 1986.

What intrigued me about these two movies is that although

Revisiting the film of Stephen King's The Lawnmower Man

Rebecca Lea Aug 7, 2017

The film that Stephen King insisted his name be taken off. It's The Lawnmower Man...

The film: Dr Lawrence Angelo (Pierce Brosnan) is at the forefront of research, using virtual reality and drug combinations in an attempt to increase intelligence in primates. When it all goes wrong, he turns to an intellectually disabled man, Jobe (Jeff Fahey), and promises him intelligence in return for his role as a human test subject. Naturally, it all goes a bit awry when Jobe succeeds beyond Angelo’s wildest dreams. Oh and Dean Norris adopts a weird, clipped accent and is nefarious.

The big blockbusters of summer 2018

Simon Brew May 9, 2017

Mission: Impossible, Avengers, Dwayne Johnson, Jurassic World, Ant-Man and more are lining up to meet you next summer. Oh, and The Statham.

With summer blockbuster season 2017 in full swing, and with Fast & Furious 8 speeding over the $1bn mark already, a bunch of filmmakers are furiously putting together their films for release this time next year (or thereabouts). Here, as things stand, is the state of summer blockbuster season 2018. We’ve veered towards UK release dates on the whole, but as always, things can quickly change.

Also, we’ve not included unnamed films: Universal, for instance, has reserved a slot for one of its classic monster universe movies, but not told anybody what it is yet. As more information pops up, we’ll keep this list up to date…

Sundance 2017: Jaunt Announces Virtual Reality Series Reimagining of The Lawnmower Man Movie

  • DailyDead
The Sundance Film Festival is just getting started in Park City, Utah, and virtual reality company Jaunt Inc. is heating things up at the winter event by announcing a Vr series reimagining of The Lawnmower Man, the 1992 film based on the Stephen King short story of the same name.

A far cry from King’s short story upon which it is based, Brett Leonard’s The Lawnmower Man movie heavily incorporated virtual reality in its plot. No details on the Vr series’ plot are known at this time, other than the fact that it will be a “reimagination of the film.”

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow Season 2 Episode 6 Review – ‘Outlaw Country’

Jessie Robertson reviews the sixth episode of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow

Completely suitable substitute if you don’t have tobacco: Tootsie Roll…..

I think they are running out of places to go….which is funny since they have all of time at their fingertips. When they visited the Wild West in season one, it actually gave Ray some purpose and while it’s fun to hear all those old stories, like we’re sitting round the campfire with a can o’ beans, there isn’t a lot of new ground tread. Nate pretty much steps into the exact shoes Ray filled last time around as a Wild West geek who just wants to rattle off every John Wayne line he can think of. The thing we know from history about the Wild West, is that it was anything but fun, but you’d never know that watching here. Last
