Chance iN tests Ab Negative

8 November 2014 10:44 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Japanese distributor picks up Neil Horner’s crime thriller from Jinga Films.

Chance iN has acquired Ab Negative for Japan from Jinga Films.

Neil Horner’s crime thriller stars Vincent Regan, Seb Castang, Robert Cavanagh and Stephen Marcus, and follows two hit men who become the subject of a sadistic game of revenge.

Jinga’s Julian Richards commented: “Ab Negative combines classic British gangster tropes with an intricate plot more typical of American crime thrillers. It may look like another Lock Stock but it has more in common with Reservoir Dogs and The Usual Suspects.”

Ab Negative has also been picked up by Invincible Pictures for North America, who are planning a theatrical release in April 2015. »

‘The Smoke’ DVD Review

21 October 2014 9:05 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Matt Di Angelo, Lili Bordán, Stephen Marcus, Darren Ripley, Velibor Topic, Christian Brassington, Anna Passey, Jeff Leach, Lindsay Armaou, Alan Ford | Written by Darren Ripley | Directed by Ben Pickering

The modern British gangster movies are strange beasts, and I admit I do have a weakness for them. With acting that is often questionable and stories that tend to be on the sillier side of crime thrillers they have a charm that can even survive a Danny Dyer starring role (that was a joke, don’t bite my head off). The Smoke, to be fair, only takes a gentle stroll into the British gangster movie style, though it does feature some actors that you’ve seen in them before, and more bizarrely more than its fair share of soap stars too.
