Review: The Snowman (2017)

7 hours ago | The Cultural Post | See recent The Cultural Post news »

Ever looked at something and thought where did it all go wrong? Sometimes a movie has everything going for it, a great concept, a great cast, a great crew and some stunning ideas and then it just flat out does not work. Remember Hancock and how it derailed? Or Neveldine/Taylor’s Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance? Well, I’m sad to report that director Tomas Alfredson’s (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Let The Right One In) adaptation of Jo Nesbø’s novel The Snowman is a real disappointment to fans of the book and newcomers alike.

From the bleak first scene to the impressive who’s who opening credits backed by Marco Beltrami’s unnerving scoring (which practically melts away into unremarkable territory after this point), this is a film that looks like it could have that lingering Scandinavian Drama/Thriller inspired chill and a real horrific thrill.

19 October 2017 3:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Robert Kojder chats with Carlos Sanz about his role in Stronger

Carlos Sanz gives an incredibly moving and emotional performance as “the hero in the cowboy hat” that saves Jake Gyllenhaal in the Jeff Bauman biopic Stronger. On the TV side, he’ll also be appearing in the brand new series Ten Days in the Valley which premiered a couple weeks ago on ABC. From both the big and small screen, Carlos has been seen in films such as Runner RunnerCrank and The Take; and on TV starring in 24, NCIS, BonesScorpion, The Fosters, The Closer and The Shield. He’s also the older brother of SNL alum, Horacio Sanz. An award-nominated theater artist, he has worked around the world including the Royal Shakespeare Company, and worked alongside such talents as the late, great Philip Seymour Hoffman.

First of all, congratulations on being a part of the film. It »

‘Mom and Dad’ Review: Nicolas Cage Goes Nuts in Cartoonish Zombie Thriller — Tiff

18 September 2017 11:51 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

If “Night of the Living Dead” and “Spun” had a demented lovechild, it would look something like Brian Taylor’s “Mom and Dad.” While that’s all the better us, the actual kid would be getting a real bum deal.  Unfortunately for that demented lovechild, if born into Taylor’s twisted world, it would soon find its two beloved parents fighting tooth and nail to kill it.

Marking his first effort as solo writer-director, Taylor has lost none of the tweaked-out, live-wire intensity he brought to his work with collaborator Mark Neveldine. “Mom and Dad” has the same depraved verve, sick humor and berserk pulse of the “Crank” series, and what’s more, marries all that to an operatic Nicolas Cage performance in full on nutzoid mode. But more than the fervid cartoon violence and Cage’s rococo line readings, the film’s greatest asset lies in its simple, cold-blooded »

‘Mom and Dad’ Review: Nicolas Cage Just Wants to Murder His Children | Tiff 2017

14 September 2017 4:52 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Anyone who appreciated the batshit insanity that Brian Taylor (alongside his former filmmaking partner Mark Neveldine) brought to the Crank series should be excited about his latest movie based purely on the premise and headlining cast member. It’s about a world where parents suddenly and inexplicably start murderin’ they children. It stars Nicolas Cage as the primary poppa with bloodlust. That means Mom and Dad has the potential for both the filmmaker and star to do what they do best: deliriously fly over-the-top with a bad taste premise for the sake of sick laughs and B-movie … »

Review: Mom and Dad (Tiff)

12 September 2017 7:46 AM, PDT | | See recent JoBlo news »

Plot: An inexplicable phenomena results in parents being uncontrollably compelled to murder their children. Review: Mom And Dad marks the solo directorial debut of Brian Taylor, one half of the famous Neveldine/Taylor directorial duo, which brought us such crazed classics as the Crank series and Gamer. Despite a presumably lower budget then their last outing as a team, Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance,... Read More »

Interview: Lloyd Kaufman on 18 Years of TromaDance, the State of Indie Filmmaking and Return To Return To Nuke ’Em High

11 August 2017 4:28 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

After five decades of being one of the biggest crusaders, innovators, and purveyors of independent genre filmmaking, the legendary Lloyd Kaufman shows no signs of slowing down any time soon.

Daily Dead recently had the pleasure of speaking with “Uncle Lloyd” about TromaDance 18, which kicks off this weekend in Manhattan, and he also discussed Return to Return to Nuke ’Em High, which is officially set to premiere later this year, and how the new Troma Now streaming service is giving fans access to an amazing array of indie horror films. Suffice to say, when it comes to fighting the good fight for indie cinema, Kaufman is still happy to be in the frontlines alongside Michael Herz and his Troma family more than 40 years now.

Congrats on another year of TromaDance. Can you talk about what the mission was when you guys first started this festival nearly two decades ago, and »

Meet Your New Favourite Spy: Atomic Blonde [Review]

27 July 2017 2:24 PM, PDT | | See recent QuietEarth news »

It seems like every few years the action genre gets an infusion of new blood. In the 80s it was Jackie Chan and his crazy stunts, in the 90s it was John Woo's Hong Kong cinema. In 2006 Neveldine and Taylor blew our minds with Crank and 2011 brought us The Raid: Redemption which seems to have kick-started a return to balls-to-the wall action culminating in John Wick, its sequel and now Atomic Blonde.

Based on Antony Johnston's "Atomic Blonde: The Coldest City" graphic novel series, the movie stars Charlize Theron as Lorraine Broughton, an MI6 agent sent to Berlin in final weeks before the fall of the Berlin Wall. Her mission is to track down an informant, code mane "Spyglass," who is in possession of a list of active field agents, among them a double agent. [Continued ...] »

The Overlook Film Festival 2017 Impressions: Immersive Experiences & Special Events

6 May 2017 11:19 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The Overlook Film Festival is something special. Easily the best genre event I’ve attended, Overlook was created for horror fans by a team whose passion for the genre runs deep. Not only have they scoured the globe for the latest horror movies that fans will get excited for, but they’ve also worked with some of the most creative people in performance art and immersive entertainment to offer attendees one-of-a-kind experiences.

Most film festivals focus heavily on the feature programming side of things for obvious reasons, but The Overlook Film Festival has enough alternative programming that you could spend your entire time focused on it. In fact, I’d say that calling it “alternative programming” does a disservice to what they’ve put together, as their special programming was stronger than the films they screened.

If you want the traditional film festival experience, that is entirely possible. If you »

Game Theory: Paul W.S. Anderson and the Filmic Board Game

13 March 2017 8:29 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Raúl Ruiz’s 1980 short film, Snakes And Ladders, follows H as he begins playing a board game where the world around him gradually becomes the board.  H comes upon two men playing ludo on a table and as he joins in, the field of play continuously grows, moving from the tabletop to Paris, Europe, the world, and finally all of existence.  H’s movement in the game becomes the work of chance governed by the roll of the dice and as he progresses he gradually comes to realize that he is the die, and that he is the game piece being moved about on the map.  The cosmic forces controlling H ultimately reach into the frame, emphatically presenting an author surrogate in the form of a hand.  Director Paul W.S. Anderson creates filmic board games similar to Snake And Ladders without explicitly revealing his authorial hand.  He leaves the author’s presence unstated, »
