’3-Headed Shark Attack’ Review

27 March 2016 3:18 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Karrueche Tran, Jason Simmons, Rob Van Dam, Danny Trejo, Jena Sims, Brad Mills, Scott Thomas Reynolds | Written by Jacob Cooney, Bill Hanstock | Directed by Christopher Olen Ray

It seems oh-so-obvious, but would you believe me if I told you that 3-Headed Shark Attack is a sequel to the 2012 film 2-Headed Shark Attack? Well it is. And both films come from Christopher Olen Ray, son of legendary (well at least in my house) B-movie director Fred Olen Ray, and director of the fantastic, and criminally over-looked, action flick Mercenaries. Ray is also one of the best director that purveyors of Syfy channel shlock, The Asylum, currently have on their roster.

Of course your enjoyment of this film depends entirely on whether or not you’re a fan of the un-ironically bad films that The Asylum – and the Syfy channel – have made their stock and trade. For me their films are »

15 February 2016 4:19 PM, PST | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

Despite Deadpool smashing all box-office records in every corner of the world ($132.7 million in Three Freaking Days — and that’s just in North America!), that’s not the only news that broke this Valentine’s weekend.

In case you, too, were ensconced in a Ryan Reynolds bubble since Friday, take a gander at these other developments:

• Am I dreaming?! News broke this weekend that Death House is a thing. With a script by the late Gunnar Hansen (a.k.a. Texas Chain Saw Massacre’s Leatherface) and Harrison Smith (director of Camp Dread) the flick is set to star a who’s who of horror: Robert Englund (Freddy — obviously — from A Nightmare On Elm Street), Kane Hodder (Jason from Friday The 13th), Doug Bradley (Pinhead from Hellraiser), Dee Wallace (Cujo, The Howling), Barbara Crampton (Re-animator), and Danny Trejo (well … everything), among others.

Horror Movies to get the Expendables treatment in ‘Death House’

15 February 2016 2:30 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Death House is a new in-development horror film that appears to borrow from the Expendables formula when it comes to casting. The film will see many icons of the genre combine to tell, what sounds like an exceptionally twisted tale.

The Death House is the Area 51 of evil…A subterranean government facility that hold humanity’s worst on nine levels. Hell, Dante’s ninth level, holds the Five Evils… the “dark stars” of Death House. These individuals are so heinous they can never walk among society again. They may also be supernatural.

Agents Toria Boon and Jae Novak have their own dark pasts, arriving at Death House to tour its levels and observe its denizens first-hand as well as the medical and mental experiments of Drs. Eileen Fletcher and Karen Redmane. Their depraved experiments date back to the Nazi doctors of WWII.

Horror Icons Unite for 'Expendables' Inspired 'Death House'

11 February 2016 5:12 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When The Expendables hit theaters back in 2010, it assembled a cast of some of the biggest action stars around, lead by Sylvester Stallone. Since then, there have been attempts to re-create this formula in other ways, such as an all-female version known as ExpendaBelles, and the Fast & Furious franchise's cast only keeps getting bigger and bigger after The Expendables came out. Now it seems that the horror genre is getting its own version of The Expendables with a new movie entitled Death House, which features a murderer's row of genre legends, according to iHorror.

The cast includes horror icons that any genre fan will be familiar with, such as Robert Englund, Danny Trejo, Michael Berryman, Kane Hodder, Dee Wallace, Bill Moseley, Barbara Crampton, Doug Bradley, Ken Foree, Camille Keaton and Don Shanks. Unfortunately, one of the other proposed stars, Gunnar Hansen, passed away in November. He also wrote the screenplay, »

2015 Was an Outstanding Year for Co-Productions and Foreign Films Shooting in Poland

4 February 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Sydney's Buzz | See recent Sydney's Buzz news »

2015 was a successful year regarding the quantity and quality of foreign productions shot in Poland. At the beginning of the year, Anne Fontaine (“Coco Before Chanel,” “Perfect Mothers”) filmed a French-Polish co-production “Agnus Dei” in Warmia, which premiered at this year's Sundance Film Festival. The film features Polish and French actresses among others Lou de Laage, Agata Kulesza, Agata Buzek and Joanna Kulig.

In the spring, the crew of a Polish-German-French-Belgian co-production about the life of Maria Sklodowska-Curie (dir. Marie Noelle) spent 20 days on the set in among others Lodz, Leba and Krakow. The cast is international, and the film is made in French. The Polish Nobelist is portrayed by Karolina Gruszka (“Oxygen”).

The summer brought about increased activity of German producers. A Zdf TV show, “Ein Sommer in…” was filmed in two resort towns in the north-eastern Poland – Mikolajki and Mragowo. Ard and Tvp collaborated on the set of "Polizeiruf 110" ("Police Call 110"), which was filmed in July and August among others in a Polish border-town – Swiecko. Also in July began the shooting of a new part of detective TV series "Der Usedom-Krimi" filmed on both the Polish and German side of the Usedom island.

However, a true influx of foreign productions took place in the autumn. American-Polish thriller “Chronology” was filmed in Poznan. The cast includes William Baldwin (TV series "Gossip Girl," "Adrift in Manhattan") and Danny Trejo (“Machete,” “From Dusk till Dawn”).

The Goetz Palace in Brzesk, in Malopolska hosted filmmakers from India who for six days were shooting “Fitoor,” an Indian adaptation of Dickens's “Great Expectations.” The crew consisted of over 40 Indians and almost 80 Poles. Another crew from India – this time from the so-called Kollywood in the south of the country – spent twenty days on the set in various Polish locations (among others Zakopane, Walbrzych, Krakow, Leba). The film titled “24” features Surya, a Tamil superstar, in the main role.

The autumn months were also very intensive in Lodz with three simultaneous big film sets. Andrzej Wajda (“The Promised Land,” “Walesa. Man of Hope”) worked on his new film “Powidoki”; Opus Film, the producer of “Ida”, organized for an Israeli partner eleven-day shoot to a film set in 1970s – “Past Life,” directed by Avi Nesher; and American director Martha Coolidge (“The Prince and Me,” TV shows “Sex and the City,” “The Twilight Zone,” “Weeds”) filmed her project “Music, War and Love,” whose producer is among others Fred Roos known from such films as “Apocalypse Now,” “The Godfather” or “Lost in Translation.” The picture features Adelaide Clemens (“The Great Gatsby”), Connie Nielsen (“Gladiator”), Toby Sebastian (“Game of Thrones”) and Stellan Skarsgård (“Nymphomaniac”).

The end of the year was also very successful for Malopolska and Krakow. Two movies were filmed in the region – an American-British biography of Martin Luther commissioned by PBS with Padraic Delaney (“The Wind that Shakes the Barley,” “The Tudors”) in the main role; and a feature titled “True Crimes” starring two-time winner of a Golden Globe – Jim Carrey (“The Truman Show,” “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,” “The Mask”) as the protagonist. The crew spent 32 days on the set in Krakow. The picture was directed by Greek Alexandros Avranas (“Miss Violence”), written by Jeremy Brock (“Brideshead Revisited,” “The Last King of Scotland”), and produced by Brett Ratner (“X-Men 3: the Last Stand,” TV series “Rush Hour”). Accompanying Jim Carrey were Charlotte Gainsbourg (“Nymphomaniac,” “Antichrist”); Marton Csokas (“The Lord of the Rings: the Return of the King,” “The Amazing Spider-Man 2”) and Polish actors Agata Kulesza (“Ida”) and Robert Wieckiewicz (“Walesa. Man of Hope”).

The first information about productions planned for 2016 has already been released. In January, Krakow will host the crew of French black comedy “Grand Froid,” Gérard Pautonnier's debut featuring Jean-Pierre Bacri (“The Taste of Others,” “Let It Rain”), Olivier Gourmet (“Rosetta,” “The Son”) and Arthur Dupond (“Bus Palladium”). The project won the first edition of the Krakow International Film Fund. »

Willem Dafoe Becomes Marilyn Monroe in Snickers Super Bowl Commercial

3 February 2016 10:09 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Snickers' Super Bowl commercials have become a thing of legend. And the big game just wouldn't be the same without a new one. Today, we get our first look at the latest edition in this long-standing Ad campaign. And it doesn't disappoint. The TV spot features two very big, albeit very different Hollywood legends.

In the new Snickers spot simply called 'Marilyn', we see the iconic actress in her signature flying skirt pose, standing over a steam grate. She has become possessed by hunger. And this manifests itself in the form of Willem Dafoe. The much-too-serious actor in a dress locks eyes with his director, who assures the 'big star' that this scene is going to be amazing!

Willem Dafoe declares the shoot a disaster. But he's soon given a Snickers bar by one of the Pas. Before you know it, Marilyn Monroe is back to her normal self. Sitting in the background, »
