A teaser for Iron Sky: The Coming Race has been released.

The sequel to the 2012 film reveals Nazis living underground in the 'Hollow Earth'.

Veteran German actor Udo Kier (Nymphomaniac), and Transformers actor James C. Burns have signed on to star in Courier X, a conspiracy thriller about the 1996 crash of Twa flight 800. The 1996 crash, which killed all 230 passengers on board, was, at the time, the second-deadliest airline accident ever in the United States. Several conspiracy theories have emerged following the incident, which speculate that the crash was due to a terrorist strike, a U.S. Navy missile test gone wrong or an onboard bomb. Courier X links the CIA to the crash, with Burns playing a CIA field

Daily | Udo Kier @ 70

14 October 2014 3:34 AM, PDT | Keyframe | See recent Keyframe news »

On the evening of October 14, 1944, the day Udo Kier was born Udo Kierspe in Cologne, the hospital was bombed and Udo and his mother had to be dug out of the rubble. It'd be nearly thirty years before Kier would break through internationally in Paul Morrissey's Flesh for Frankenstein and Blood for Dracula. He's since appeared in over 200 films directed by the likes of Lars von Trier, Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Dario Argento, Werner Herzog, Gus Van Sant, Wim Wenders, Rob Zombie, John Carpenter, Guy Maddin and the list goes on. » - David Hudson »

The FrightFest All-Nighter 14 returns to its spiritual home, The Prince Charles Cinema, on Saturday October 25th, with five killer titles, including the world premiere of Anthony Diblasi’s Last Shift.

The evening kicks off with a special preview of The Vicious Brothers Extraterrestrial, a fine blend of Close Encounters and Communion with “some of the most extraordinary special effects and camerawork you’ll see in 2015″. Next up, The ABC’s of Death 2 needs no introduction. The first was a huge draw at FrightFest Glasgow and now attendees can scream along to 26 more deaths by 26 handpicked filmmakers. This is followed by the world premiere of Anthony Diblasi’s demonic horror Last Shift, which had to be dropped from the August line-up because of altered release and completion dates as did the next film – the highly anticipated sequel The Pact II, which has its UK premiere.

Blu-ray Review – Mark of the Devil (1970)

29 September 2014 1:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Mark of the Devil, 1970.

Directed by Michael Armstrong.

Starring Herbert Lom, Udo Kier, Olivera Katarina, Reggie Nalder and Herbert Fux.

Synopsis:

Apprentice witch hunter Udo Kier comes to realise that his mentor Herbert Lom may not have the best of intentions when it comes to deciding who is guilty of witchcraft.

A notorious folk horror film from the golden era of post-Witchfinder General movies that relished in showing medieval practises for what they really were, Mark of the Devil was notable for being the first movie that was “Rated V for Violence” – or so the advertising campaign claimed – and for Us cinemas supplying vomit bags to accompany the “Positively the Most Horrifying Film Ever Made” tagline.

Although in 2014 that tag obviously no longer applies, Mark of the Devil is still quite a brutal film when put into context and is in many ways superior to Witchfinder General, the film »

‘Mark of the Devil’ Blu-ray Review (Arrow Video)

24 September 2014 1:42 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Udo KierHerbert Lom, Olivera Katrina, Reggie Nalder, Herbert Fux, Johannes Buzalski, Michael Maien, Gaby Fuchs, Ingeborg Schöner, Günter Clemens, Doris von Danwitz | Written by Michael Armstrong, Adrian Hoven | Directed by Michael Armstrong

My first experience with Mark of the Devil was to receive a DVD review copy from America which included a barf bag, written on the side was a warning that this movie would make me sick…of course it didn’t.  I like novelties like that though, it adds to the fun of cult movies and gives it an over the top feeling.  These gimmicks may never live up to what they promise but that’s hardly the point.  Mark of the Devil is a surprisingly extreme film for its time, which is probably why it took so long to make its way to the UK, then to finally be released uncut.  Now Arrow Video have »

‘The Editor’ Is the Canadian Giallo Comedy You Didn’t Know You Wanted

23 September 2014 4:41 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Rey Ciso (Adam Brooks) was once the most celebrated film editor in the world, but ever since a lapse in judgement while working on the longest film ever made left him four fingers short he’s been relegated to cutting trashy genre movies for no-talent hacks. When cast members on his latest project start turning up dead the cop investigating the crimes, Det. Peter Porfiry (Matthew Kennedy), immediately sets his sights on Rey forcing the editor into a race against time to identify the real culprit before it’s too late. His efforts are complicated by several factors including the possibility that he may be the murderer after all. The list of suspects is as long as Dario Argento’s Giallo is terrible and includes Rey’s wife Josephine (Paz de la Huerta), an actor named Cal (Conor Sweeney) who’s benefiting from the newly available roles, Rey’s eager new assistant (Samantha Hill) and the head »

Mark Of The Devil: Uncut on DVD and Blu for the first time

17 September 2014 9:03 AM, PDT | 24framespersecond.net | See recent 24FramesPerSecond news »

Arrow Video is thrilled to announce the UK Blu-ray and DVD release of Mark of the Devil, once proclaimed as “positively the most horrifying film ever made”. Mark of the Devil finally arrives uncut in the UK on 29th September 2014. With Mark of the Devil, writer-director Michael Armstrong created a bloody and brutal critique of state-funded brutality and religious corruption with a doomed romance at its centre. In America, Mark of the Devil was distributed with a free sick bag provided for every patron. In the UK the BBFC were obliged to sit through the entire uncut film and deemed it “vicious and disgusting.” They recommended that a certificate be refused entirely and provided a list of required cuts to make the film acceptable for an X certificate. This means that finally, after more than forty years, the full-blooded, full-frontal version of Mark of the Devil can be released with »

No Holds Barred Nymphomaniac Director’s Cut Is Five Hours Long, Out In October

16 September 2014 1:56 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

More often than not, when a studio releases a director’s cut of a film, it’s met with positive feedback from the audience. A chance to peek behind the curtain to see the filmmaker’s vision in its pure, untainted form. For Nymphomaniac, though — Lars Von Trier’s unflinching opus about the life of a sex addict — things might be a little, well, different.

Nevertheless, the renown Danish director is set to release his own five-and-a-half-hour-long director’s cut of the film — which was originally split into two volumes in every territory bar Denmark — alongside Nymphomaniac’s upcoming VOD release on October 2nd.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Von Trier is also planning to screen the uncut version “at special festival events across North America, as well as in several European countries including Spain, the Netherlands, Poland, the Czech Republic and in Trier’s native Denmark.”

In essence, Nymphomaniac »

5 And A Half Hour Director’s Cut Of Lars Von Trier’s ‘Nymphomaniac’ Set For October U.S. Release

16 September 2014 11:12 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

I haven’t had the ‘pleasure’ of watching either of director Lars Von Trier’s Nymphomaniac as yet, but I did manage to catch most of the clips leading up to release. None shocked me more than the 23-second ‘director’s cut’ teaser that debuted just over a couple of weeks ago. I’m not easily shocked, and truly believe that I’m quite liberal, but this is very, very hard stuff. It really does not get much more Nc-17 than this, a rating I’m sure that it will receive upon release, which we’re told will be in October. The release will be both in cinemas, and VOD, and will also expand to Spain, the Netherlands, Poland, Czech Republic and Denmark. Notice the exclusion of the UK in that list. I really don’t know how they’re going to get around the, let’s face it, pornographic content over here. »

Toronto Film Review: ‘The Editor’

11 September 2014 1:13 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Devoted fans of the Italian giallo genre — those hybrid murder-mystery/horror mellers that flourished from the mid-’60s to the mid-’80s — will get a hoot out of the precision with which “The Editor” satirizes their clumsier conventions. Unfortunately, no one else is likely to get the joke. Winnipeg collective Astron-6’s prior features “Manborg” and “Father’s Day” were equally insular homages-cum-spoofs, but had the virtue of sending up more widely familiar exploitation idioms. Less laugh-out-loud funny than those predecessors even for those in the know, this overlong homage will delight serious horror geeks at appropriate festivals, but in commercial terms won’t do much to raise the talented group’s profile.

Rey Cisco (Adam Brooks) is the longtime editor to a veteran Italian director who’s filming his latest schlock horror film circa 1980. But starting with the leading man, someone starts wreaking bloody havoc on the cast and crew. »

Is Wesley Snipes Returning for Blade 4?

29 August 2014 2:36 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After revealing at Comic-Con last month that he wants to return as the Daywalker in Blade 4, The New York Daily News reveals that Wesley Snipes is now set to return for the sequel.

Sources claim his comeback is "looking good" after serving nearly three years in a federal prison for tax evasion, and that he will make $3 million for the sequel, along with an undisclosed cut of the profits.

Wesley Snipes starred as the title character in 1998's Blade, 2002's Blade 2 and 2004's Blade: Trinity, which were all distributed by New Line Cinema. Marvel Studios reacquired the rights to Blade in May 2013, and the studio announced later that month that a new Blade movie is being developed.

Neither Blade 4 nor the casting of Wesley Snipes has been announced by Disney and Marvel Studios. The film doesn't currently have a screenwriter or director attached, but we'll keep you posted as soon as more information comes in. »

As if the original retro poster for The Editor wasn't enough (the one you see on the right), the film has received another one-sheet from artist Graham Humphreys.

The cast is terrific: Paz de la Huerta (always an interesting choice because you never know what you're going to get!), Samantha Hill, Adam Brooks, Laurence R. Harvey and Udo Kier star.
