For people who are fans of the Punisher (Ooh, Me, Me!), whether he’s depicted in comics, television, film, there’s always a fine balance to strike between how violent and ruthless can he be. For me, he’s the Punisher; he punishes the guilty; now how he does that, I leave up to him. I think when you have a broader audience you’re trying to introduce to the character, as in film or television, there’s a need to hold back on the violence he extracts, to rein it in as to not »

Editorial: Maggie, The Mist and Why Children In Peril Are Important Elements In Horror

8 July 2015 3:08 AM, PDT | | See recent Icons of Fright news »

This is not a review. In fact, if you’re looking for a recap of the now on DVD/Bluray Schwarzenegger film Maggie, look elsewhere. What this is, for all intents and purposes, is something of an editorial, a reflection on why the presence of children in danger and what can sometimes come from that element is an important aspect of horror and dealing with a possible situation that nobody with children would ever want to think about. It’s biased, completely based on myself and my thoughts on the subject and will contain Many spoilers, so if you have yet to see Maggie, The Mist or any other films present in this, feel free to minimize this until seeing said films.

Growing up, I loved films full of crazy shit, the worst it could be, the more I liked it. My days were filled with punk rock, skateboarding and watching horror films. »

Filming Delayed On "USS Indianapolis"

4 July 2015 8:16 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Filming on "USS Indianapolis: Men Of Courage," the upcoming historical biopic about the famous ship sinking incident during WW2, has been halted temporarily due to problems with one of the vehicles.

A vintage Navy Pby plane used during filming landed offshore and began to take on water, no-one was injured and the pilot and co-pilot were rescued safely. However, production was halted temporarily during efforts to save the flying boat that ultimately broke apart during salvage operations.

The film's producers say the have enough footage captured from this and additional footage to be shot at nearby Wolf Bay will allow completion of the necessary scenes.

Nicolas Cage, Thomas Jane, Matt Lanter and Tom Sizemore star in the Mario Van Peebles-directed film about the doomed U.S. ship which was torpedoed by a Japanese submarine and sank.

‘Vice’ DVD Review

21 June 2015 9:10 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Bruce Willis, Ambyr Childers, Thomas Jane, Bryan Greenberg, Johnathon Schaech, Charlotte Kirk, Brett Granstaff, Ryan O’Nan, David Gordon, Colin Egglesfield, Cameron Brexler, Jesse Pruett, Tyler Jon Olson, Don Harvey, Lydia Hull | Written by Andre Fabrizio, Jeremy Passmore | Directed by Brian A. Miller

Take one part The Matrix, one part Surrogates and mix in a dash of video gmae Mirror’s Edge and you have Vice, a Cyberpunk action flick that – for older film fans like myself – plays as little more than a modern-day clone of Westworld and its sequel; which also shares a lot in common with the likes of Mamoru Oshii’s Ghost in the Shell sequel Innocence.

Designed by Julian Michaels (Willis), Vice is the ultimate resort where anything goes, allowing customers to play out their wildest fantasies and fulfil their deepest, darkest desires with artificial inhabitants who look, think and feel like real humans. Things »

Into The Grizzly Maze Review

20 June 2015 2:06 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Severed limbs, evil poachers, and a gigantic killer grizzly bear – oh my! That’s exactly what Saw V director David Hackl aims to deliver in his new animalistic thriller, Into The Grizzly Maze, and he certainly doesn’t fail. The film wastes little time introducing viewers to a massive, angry bear who doesn’t take kindly to illegal hunters invading its home turf, so he/she decides to get revenge through his/her own series of grotesque murders. For every action, there’s an equal and opposite reaction, but when you screw with Mother Nature, that reaction is usually a Hell of a lot worse than normal. Mess with the bull, you get the horns – or in this case, you get the bear claws.

9 of the craziest post-Jaws shark movies, from Jaws in Japan to Sharknado

20 June 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Ever since Steven Spielberg's Jaws redefined the blockbuster back in the summer of 1975, sharks have been a big screen mainstay, terrifying film fans and spawning a horror sub-genre that's usually thrifty in budget but big on ludicrousness.

As Jaws celebrates its 40th birthday today (June 20), take a dive into B-movie heaven and fish out some of cinema's craziest shark-based cinema offerings.

1. Deep Blue Sea (1999)

A Jaws movie in all but name, this souped-up action-horror from Renny Harlin boasts a bigger budget than every other film on this list combined, but a script that rivals them all for hilarity.

The setup? A group of scientists in an underwater research base conduct experiments on sharks in a bid to find a cure for Alzheimer's. Boasting a cast that includes everyone from Thomas Jane to Samuel L Jackson (with LL Cool J as a parrot-loving chef), this is big and dumb - but most importantly, »

Why the Punisher works better as a supporting character

14 June 2015 2:38 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anghus Houvouras on why the Punisher works better as a supporting character…

I don’t know about you, but I’m excited. The first season of Daredevil was a gift. The best thing Marvel Studios has put out to date. An almost perfect interpretation of the character in a world where he feels outgunned, under-powered, and fighting a perpetual uphill battle. I’m also excited for all the rumors and announcements for season 2. Jason Statham taking a villainous role? Turkish as Bullseye? Sign me up.

Then this week we heard that the Punisher will be rearing his ugly mug back into the Marvel Cinematic Universe and will be played by John Bernthal. It just keeps getting better. I’m excited about the casting, but I’m more excited about how the character is being re-introduced into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The Punisher is a character that has been adapted about »

Marc Alan Fishman: Three Thoughts Laying Around

13 June 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | | See recent Comicmix news »

Sorry, kiddos. I ain’t got no snark to hone into laser focus this week. With a day job literally sapping my inner strength as we prepare a massive brand overhaul alongside our massive summer conference, all I have the energy to do when I make my way home is the bare minimum. Which of course amounts to drawing pages for the upcoming new Samurnauts book, planning a major crowdfunding campaign around said book, organizing video shoots and marketing lists for said campaign, completing sundry freelance gigs for way less money than I ought to be collecting, and of course… writing for you, my adoring public. So, as is the custom when my well seems to be tapped of a singular topic, I present to you a smattering of my simmering speculations from my cerebellum.

Hey, I may be running close to empty, but I’ll be damned if I »

‘Heavenly Sword’ VOD Review

10 June 2015 12:05 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars (the voices of): Anna Torv, Alfred Molina, Thomas Jane, Ashleigh Ball, Barry Dennen, Renae Geerlings, Nolan North | Written by Todd Farmer | Directed by Gun Ho Jang

Heavenly Sword is a dramatic tale of revenge that sees Nariko (Anna Torv), a fiery red-haired heroine, embark on a quest for vengeance against the invading King Bohan (Alfred Molina) and his army. Once considered the failure of a legendary prophesy, Nariko must wield a sword that was ultimately meant for another. This ancient Heavenly Sword, once belonging to a powerful deity, can never be wielded by a mortal without it slowly but inevitably killing them. For Nariko it is a race against time to avenge her clan before her life is irreparably overtaken by the omnipotent Heavenly Sword.

I am going to preface this review by stating that I have never played the Heavenly Sword game. I am reviewing Heavenly Sword »

Everything you need to know about Daredevil's new vigilante Punisher

10 June 2015 3:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are getting the hero they've been clamouring for as The Punisher makes his return to screens in season two of Daredevil.

Frank Castle will be out to clean up Hell's Kitchen when The Walking Dead's Jon Bernthal takes on the coveted role as the ruthless and brutal street vigilante.

However, this is far from the first time that The Punisher has appeared in live action – and it might not even be his first appearance in Marvel's shared film universe.

To get you excited for the return of Marvel's Daredevil, we look back on The Punisher's comic book origins and his previous big screen adventures.

1. His origin story was truly explosive

The story of Frank Castle began to unfold in the pages of The Amazing Spider-Man in February 1974, as a creation of iconic Marvel writer Gerry Conway, art director John Romita Sr and artist Ross Andru. »

‘Daredevil’ Season 2 casts Jon Bernthal as The Punisher

10 June 2015 12:05 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Marvel and Netflix’s Daredevil has been a butt-whupping success, and producers aren’t slowing the momentum for the upcoming second season.

Major character The Punisher/Frank Castle is to join the urban mayhem, with Jon Bernthal just announced as the Diy death machine. Bernthal became familiar to small screen audiences via his roles in The Walking Dead and Mob City.

Bringing vigilante Castle to life has been a slow process to date, with a handful of feature films to his name starring the likes of Dolph Lundgren and Thomas Jane. Showrunners Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez are hoping a team up/face off with Charlie Cox‘s Matt Murdock will rock fans’ boats, leading presumably to a Punisher series somewhere down the line.

In the meantime the comic book streaming empire has its hands full putting together the Defenders superteam of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. »
