‘The Editor’ Is the Canadian Giallo Comedy You Didn’t Know You Wanted

23 September 2014 4:41 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Rey Ciso (Adam Brooks) was once the most celebrated film editor in the world, but ever since a lapse in judgement while working on the longest film ever made left him four fingers short he’s been relegated to cutting trashy genre movies for no-talent hacks. When cast members on his latest project start turning up dead the cop investigating the crimes, Det. Peter Porfiry (Matthew Kennedy), immediately sets his sights on Rey forcing the editor into a race against time to identify the real culprit before it’s too late. His efforts are complicated by several factors including the possibility that he may be the murderer after all. The list of suspects is as long as Dario Argento’s Giallo is terrible and includes Rey’s wife Josephine (Paz de la Huerta), an actor named Cal (Conor Sweeney) who’s benefiting from the newly available roles, Rey’s eager new assistant (Samantha Hill) and the head »

What Did You Watch This Weekend?

22 September 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The Weekend Watch is an open thread where you can share what you’ve recently watched, offer suggestions on movies and TV shows we should check out (or warnings about stuff to avoid) and discover queue-filling goodies from other Fsr readers. The comments section awaits. I’ll get the ball rolling with the movies/TV my eyeballs took in this weekend. I’m at Fantastic Fest this weekend, so all of my movie watching has been focused on fest titles. It’s been more of a mixed bag this year than expected, and so far my favorite films playing here are still a handful of ones I saw previously elsewhere including Blind, The Babadook and No Man’s Land. I’ve seen some strong contenders though this weekend including the new one from the boys at Astron-6, The Editor. It’s an over the top homage to Italian horror and giallo films, and »

Toronto Film Review: ‘The Editor’

11 September 2014 1:13 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Devoted fans of the Italian giallo genre — those hybrid murder-mystery/horror mellers that flourished from the mid-’60s to the mid-’80s — will get a hoot out of the precision with which “The Editor” satirizes their clumsier conventions. Unfortunately, no one else is likely to get the joke. Winnipeg collective Astron-6’s prior features “Manborg” and “Father’s Day” were equally insular homages-cum-spoofs, but had the virtue of sending up more widely familiar exploitation idioms. Less laugh-out-loud funny than those predecessors even for those in the know, this overlong homage will delight serious horror geeks at appropriate festivals, but in commercial terms won’t do much to raise the talented group’s profile.

Rey Cisco (Adam Brooks) is the longtime editor to a veteran Italian director who’s filming his latest schlock horror film circa 1980. But starting with the leading man, someone starts wreaking bloody havoc on the cast and crew. »

The Tripper and Contact High

25 August 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

Music festivals have never appealed to me. Especially the ones that involve camping in the dead of summer. The bands that are booked for festivals either don’t register or elicit a chuckle. Being around hundreds to thousands of people for that long sounds like one of the ten Chambers of Hell not mentioned in Big Trouble in Little China. Not to mention chronic swamp ass for days.

Six friends are headed to the Free Love Festival nestled deep in the Red Wood forest. Samantha (Jamie King) is hoping to have a good time and put her psycho right wing ex-boyfriend, and bad acid trip behind her. Samantha is excited to spend the time Not everyone is thrilled about the annual freak show. While the Mayor (Rick Overton) is eager for the revenue to fill the town coffers, Sheriff Buzz Hall (Thomas Jane) smells a rat. And they don’t »

The Editor Gets a Really Great Poster

14 August 2014 3:02 PM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

As if the original retro poster for The Editor wasn't enough (the one you see on the right), the film has received another one-sheet from artist Graham Humphreys.

The cast is terrific: Paz de la Huerta (always an interesting choice because you never know what you're going to get!), Samantha Hill, Adam Brooks, Laurence R. Harvey and Udo Kier star.

The Healthy Helpers: The Top 10 Movie Nurses

20 June 2014 2:42 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Now what would the medical profession be like without the dependable skills of nursing in cinema? Sure, the doctors get their lion’s share of representation in the movies but what about the nurses that serve them? What is so interesting about the portrayal of nurses in film is that they can be characterized beyond the compassionate medical maidens that the public associates them with on a whim. Motion pictures allow for big screen nurses to show some complexity beyond loving bedside manners and juggling bedpans. Cinematic nurses can be caring, comical, crazed, confused or corrupt.

Whatever the complication or consideration of these celluloid servers of health care rest assure that they are a glorified bunch in their devotion to the medical field. Whether flawed or favorable we will take a look at some of the top-notch nurses in film as cited in The Healthy Helpers: The Top 10 Movie Nurses. »

Too Drab: What the Heck Are They Wearing?!?

31 May 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Bondage chic, the Bride of Frankenstein and a ripped bodysuit -- stars are rocking all the wrong trends this week! Emily Blunt walked the red carpet at the "Edge of Tomorrow" premiere in Paris, rocking a half-sheer, half-leather, high-neck top and pencil skirt. While the actress' body looks amazing just three months after giving birth to baby Hazel, this edgy ensemble looks cheap, instead of chic. Pamela Anderson raised some eyebrows at the World Music Awards, where she sported a white gown that was ill fitting, way too long and like a scene out of an "I Love the 90's" special. Not to mention, she traded in her cute pixie cut for a bleach blonde wig that made her look like the Bride of Frankenstein.Sorry Pam, it's time to step back into the 21st century again!And, Paz de la Huerta landed on our worst dressed list for wearing »

Nurse 3D Blu-ray Review

29 April 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The term "acquired taste" was made for movies like Nurse. It brazenly wears its exploitation status on its sleeve, daring critics to condemn it and then laughing in their faces when they do. It's not overtly camp -- the wit is too sly and the jokes too subtle for that -- but it knows exactly what it is, and that knowledge serves it extremely well. Naturally any movie about a homicidal nurse who seduces philandering men before disposing of them in creatively violent ways won't tickle everyone's fancy. But for those attuned to such grindhouse depths, the treats on display are far too tasty to resist. Hit the jump for my full review. Chief among them is leading lady Paz de la Huerta, whose sole task here is to look good naked while spattered in blood, and who performs that duty (if no other) with style and panache. Her character »

Is Nurse 2 on Its Way?

20 April 2014 4:59 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Paz de la Huerta may have tweeted the best Easter present fans of her odd yet oddly entertaining Nurse 3D (Blu-ray/DVD review here) could have hoped for: the first inkling of a possible sequel!

Paz's tweets are below - let us know what you thought of the original and if it merits another installment.

Directed by Douglas Aarniokoski (The Day), Nurse 3D stars de la Huerta, Katrina Bowden, Corbin Bleu, and Judd Nelson in a scintillating horror film about a nurse with a secret double life as a murderous vixen.

Nurse 3D Blu-Ray Review

8 April 2014 6:02 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ever since Nurse Ratched terrorized Chief Bromden and Randle McMurphy in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, nurses have been slotted into two categories by Hollywood writers. There’s the battle axe, like Ratched and Sister Jude in American Horror Story: Asylum (to give a more recent example), and the naughty nurse, like Dakota Block in Planet Terror, Elle Driver in Kill Bill and any number of adult actresses. To my knowledge, however, no film has ever combined the two with such nutty results as Nurse 3D.

Paz de la Huerta proves an inspired choice to play Abby Russell, a devoted nurse by day who stalks through clubs at night, murdering men she seduces into cheating on their wives. When Abby goes out drinking one night with new nurse Danni (Katrina Bowden) and finds herself intensely attracted to the young woman, she spends the night with her and begins to pursue her romantically. »

Ten of the Most Horrible Hospitals in Horror

25 March 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

Fear can be a strange thing. It can pop up at unexpected moments, and for unexplainable reasons. While some people can have irrational fears of things like clowns and spiders, there are a select few who fear places meant to be a safe haven for people in their time of need. A place that always seems to garner a mixed feeling of either dread or serenity is a hospital.  They’re big buildings full of many individuals, and yet they always feel so empty. It could be the dull colors, the odd silence, or the cold that drifts down its many dark hallways that makes one uneasy. Or maybe it’s the aroma of rubbing alcohol and latex that triggers an unpleasant past experience for a person. All of these things are enough to make one think of a horror movie, because they are the perfect setting for disastrous events. »

Dinner for Fiends - In Carcosa

23 February 2014 2:58 PM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

No. Your eyes do not deceive you. There's already another edition of Dinner for Fiends. This is part of our effort to do them a bit shorter in length and on a more frequent basis. Though I am missing the "It's been so long since we last did a Dff that..." jokes. That being said, over an hour of auditory goodness awaits. Feast.

On this menu you’ll mostly hear from me, Matt, Buz, and Andrew (Foy was unable to join us due to needed work at master control) as we spend most of the time discussing “True Detective," the finer points of Nurse along with its star - Paz De La Huerta's commanding vagina, and little known flicks that Need a Blu-ray release badly.

Other topics covered include:

Religion Carcosa Andrew planting his seed Carcosa Buz being a tiny dictator Carcosa

Bon appétit!

Exclusive: Henri M Kessler’s fledgling Micro Films Group has secured co-financing and a production start for Phoenix, the second feature from Amy Redford.

Intandem division Manifest Film Sales handles international sales and has been in talks with buyers at the Efm.

The New York-set film follows two love-averse strangers on a trek to Phoenix and back as they navigate the emotional possibilities and repercussions of a one-night stand. 

Scott Organ adapted Phoenix from his play of the same name, which had its world premiere at the 2010 Humana Festival of New American Plays in Louisville and in New York at The Barrow Group.

Pre-production is set to begin in March and principal photography for April-May in New York.  Buzz Koenig and Paul Urcioli will produce and Kessler is on board as executive producer.
