'Naciye' and 'Night of the Slasher' screen at Screamfest 2015

By Jonathan Weichsel

MoreHorror.com

Naciye is written and directed by Luftu Emre Cicek and stars Derya Alabora, Esin Harvey, and Gorkem Mertsoz. Night of the Slasher is written and directed by Shant Hamassian and stars Lily Berlina

On Thursday October 15th Screamfest had an interesting screening of two very different films, Night of the Slasher and Naciye. Although both films are slashers, they couldn't be further apart in terms of style and substance. Night of the Slasher is a fast paced, self-aware, funny short in the vein of Scream, while Naciye is a serious, heavy handed and high minded feature length art house horror film from Turkey. Both films offer unique takes on the slasher film, demonstrating how broad and diverse the slasher sub-genre has become.

Night of the Slasher is a short film that was made as a proof of concept in order to make a feature. While

DVD Review – A Most Wanted Man (2014)

A Most Wanted Man, 2014.

Directed by Anton Corbijn.

Starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, Rachel McAdams, Willem Dafoe, Daniel Brühl, Robin Wright, Grigoriy Dobrygin, Derya Alabora and Nina Hoss.

Synopsis:

A Chechen Muslim illegally immigrates to Hamburg, where he gets caught in the international war on terror.

With this release Corbijn has once again proven himself to be a director with no small amount of style. Ever since his feature debut with 2007’s powerful and understated Ian Curtis biopic Control, the Dutch photographer and music video director has brought a tremendous amount of fluidity and depth of style to his body of work. This, a measured and considered adaptation of John Le Carre’s 2008 stirring liberal response to the ongoing – and currently escalating – war on terror is a fascinating and artful take on the spy movie genre.

Similarities can and have been drawn between this terrifically moving piece and another recent Le

Movie Review – A Most Wanted Man (2014)

A Most Wanted Man, 2014.

Directed by Anton Corbijn.

Starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, Rachel McAdams, Willem Dafoe, Daniel Brühl, Robin Wright, Grigoriy Dobrygin, Derya Alabora and Nina Hoss.

Synopsis:

A Chechen Muslim illegally immigrates to Hamburg, where he gets caught in the international war on terror.

Sodden, dishevelled and alone a young man (Grigoriy Dobrygin) pulls himself from the River Elbe. In the grey dawn of a Hamburg morning Gunther Bachmann (Phillip Seymour Hoffman) sits across from his colleague Irna Frey (Nina Hoss). A cramped office divided neatly down the centre, piles of papers, reminders pinned across the walls and a comfortable silence between them.

Soon CCTV footage featuring this very same young man (Grigoriy Dobrygin) in conversation will cause a domino effect. Bachmann (Seymour Hoffman) and his team will become embroiled with CIA operative Martha Sullivan (Robin Wright), banker Tommy Brue (Willem Dafoe) and human rights lawyer Anna Richter (Rachel McAdams

Sundance Film Review: ‘A Most Wanted Man’

Sundance Film Review: ‘A Most Wanted Man’
Intelligence is both the subject and the approach of Anton Corbijn’s “A Most Wanted Man,” a meticulously plotted, steadily absorbing Hamburg-set drama that casts a cynical yet compassionate eye on the complexities of counterterrorist work in the post-9/11 era. Adopting the same cool, methodical approach that he did in his offbeat procedural “The American,” Corbijn succeeds here in large part because his attention to nuance and detail so fully complements that of the German operatives at the story’s core. Starring the Teuton-accented trio of Philip Seymour Hoffman, Rachel McAdams and Willem Dafoe, a risky casting decision that ultimately pays off, this decidedly low-pulse endeavor will put off viewers who like their spy thrillers with a bit more oomph, but should court plenty of intrigue among discerning arthouse-goers who see the name “John le Carre” and know what they’re in for.

A Most Wanted Man Adds Daniel Bruhl, Official Synopsis Revealed!

Anton Corbijn‘s project A Most Wanted Man, remember that one? I’m sure you do. I mean, who could say no to this movie cast? We already have Philip Seymour Hoffman, Rachel McAdams, Robin Wright and Willem Dafoe all on board for this action thriller, and according to the latest reports, Daniel Bruhl is about to join them as well!

A Most Wanted Man is an adaptation of John le Carré’s bestselling novel of the same name, described as a cerebral tale of intrigue that is both contemporary and deeply human, touching on love, rivalry, politics and the world we live in.

When a half-Chechen, half-Russian, tortured half-to-death immigrant turns up in Hamburg’s Islamic community, laying claim to his father’s ill gotten fortune, both German and Us security agencies take a close interest: as the clock ticks down and the stakes rise, the race is on
