5 reasons why The Lost World: Jurassic Park isn’t as bad as you remember

23 June 2015 11:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Simon Columb with 5 reasons why The Lost World: Jurassic Park isn’t as bad as you remember…

You did it. You planned to watch all three Jurassic Park films prior to watching Jurassic World and stalled after the first one.

There are problems with The Lost World: Jurassic Park, sure, but it is crucially a Spielberg film. Not executively-produced, but directed by the bearded cinematic deity himself. But you had to skip it because everyone ‘knows’ how bad it is. Truth be known, I don’t think it is that bad. I don’t see the horrendous train-wreck of a film, many believed it was…

The now-defunct podcast ‘Frankly, My Dear‘ once claimed – and I’m paraphrasing – “The Lost World is so bad that it puts in doubt whether Spielberg actually directed the film and, though people claim it’s only the San Diego bit which is bad, in fact, »

PS4 exclusive ‘Until Dawn’ is coming August this year

26 May 2015 9:51 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

PS4 exclusive scare ‘em up, Until Dawn, will be released on Tuesday August 25th in the Us, with the European release following a few days later on the 28th. Little has been revealed regarding Supermassive Games’ PS4 exclusive lately, but PlayStation Blog has today dropped the release dates, as well as a few more juicy pieces of information.

Most exciting (for me, anyway) is the news that Peter Stormare has officially joined the cast for the game. You might remember Mr. Stormare from his roles in Jurassic Park: The Lost World (he was a bad guy), Fargo (he was a bad guy), Arrow (he was a bad guy), and The Big Lebowski (he was a nihilist, and they don’t care about anything). One of the great character actors of our time, Peter Stormare will surely be an interesting addition to the cast. And probably a bad guy. Featuring »

15 May 2015 1:01 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

The partnership between genre favorites Scream Factory and IFC Midnight has definitely been a good one, with the team-up doing quite an excellent job putting out some pretty entertaining films, with everything from Jennifer Kent’s The Babadook to The Vicious BrothersExtraterrestrial all being must have releases for horror fans.  Adding even more solid titles to their partnership roster, Sf & IFC have now announced the July 7th DVD/Bluray release date for both Paul Solet’s Dark Summer and Jabbar Raisani’s Very solid film Alien Outpost. It’s been a while since Solet’s last film (the extremely effective and original 2009 motherly tale, Grace), so Dark Summer hitting shelves is some excellent news, and Alien Outpost is yet another very well done take on both the found footage-like subgenre and alien invasion flicks.

Dark Summer DVD Review

11 April 2015 1:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Paul Solet

Cast: Keir Gilchrist , Stella Maeve, Peter Stormare, Grace Phipps

Certificate: 15

Running Time: 79 minutes

Tied for years to the slasher/torture porn over-the-top gore fests, the horror genre lost any semblance of atmosphere. In recent months though we’ve seen it turn a bend for the better with several very clever and innovative projects hitting our shores; The Babadook, Starry Eyes and It Follows have all shown that less is always more. The latest movie to attempt this refreshing approach is Dark Summer which deals with in-vogue topics such as cyber stalking and the ramifications that it can have, and much like It Follows the power of teenage friendship.

As well as sharing a theme, horror connoisseurs will recognise the film’s protagonist Keir Gilchrist as the perpetually friend-zoned Paul in It Follows. As Daniel, Gilchrist creates a rather odd lead character that we aren’t quite sure »

 Director: Eric Darnell & Simon J. Smith

Running Time: 92 minutes

After the immense success of Madagascar (2005) it was inevitable that sequels would follow, and that they did in the form of Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa (2008) and Madagascar 3: Europe’S Most Wanted (2012), with a fourth installment planned for 2018. However, it wasn’t just the main characters/animals to win over the hearts of children and adults alike; four penguins by the names of Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private have shot to stardom, with their film Penguins Of Madagascar a hoot from beginning to end.
