‘The Rizen’ Review

Stars: Laura Swift, Patrick Knowles, Christopher Tajah, Laurence Kennedy, Julian Rhind-Tutt, Adrian Edmondson, Sally Phillips, Tom Goodman-Hill, Bruce Payne, Stephen Marcus, Bruce Herbelin-Earle | Written and Directed by Matt Mitchell

The Rizen is a UK indie-horror film set in a black hallway during the early days of the Cold War in 1955. You can tell this a period piece by the handcrafted, vintage style black walls and black floors. If this movies set design got any darker it would write poetry and start cutting itself.

I had a hard time getting into this film before I even hit the play button. The title is The Rizen. No, not “the risen” as in “the dead has risen” if you’re referencing zombies, or “He has risen” if you’re referencing theological zombies. As far as I can tell The Rizen is purposefully misspelled like “Kewl Katz” or “Hawt Dawg”. I had to Google

Movie Review – The Rizen (2017)

The Rizen, 2017.

Directed by Matt Mitchell.

Starring Laura Swift, Christopher Tajah, Patrick Knowles, Adrian Edmondson, Julian Rhind-Tutt, and Sally Phillips.

Synopsis:

The year is 1955. Nato and the Allied Forces have been conducting secret, occult experiments in a bid to win the Arms Race. Now, they have finally succeeded but what the Army has unleashed threatens to tear our world apart. One woman must lead the only survivors past horrors that the military has no way to control – and fight to close what should never have been opened.

The Rizen is the type of film that you find on the Horror channel late one night and for some inexplicable reason you can’t stop watching it. It’s a combination of gore horror, sci-fi and comedy (most I imagine is unintentional).

Opening with a ton of choppy editing, a woman called Frances (Swift) is dragged through a dark hallway and attacked by some kind of creature.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Isn’t As Good Or Bad As You Think It Is

Neil Calloway tries to find middle ground with the latest Star Wars film…

Warning: contains spoilers for Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

It’s been over a week, you’ve had time to go through the stages of grief and finally come to acceptance that The Last Jedi is a fairly decent film, or if you won’t accept that, you can accept that there’s nothing you can do about it. That petition won’t work. It’s here to stay, and Rian Johnson is making his own Star Wars trilogy. You overreacting like a spoiled schoolkid – or a whiny New Hope era Luke Skywalker – is not going to change anything. The Simpsons’ Comic Book Guy is not a person you should look up to as a role model. “Worst. Episode. Ever.” is not a good mantra. You can’t wallow in a bath of distilled essence of Jawa and Greedo forever.

The 1 Star Wars: The Last Jedi Cameo American Audiences Probably Missed

  • BuzzSugar
Everyone wants in on Star Wars, no matter how small the role, which is why there are so many notable cameos in the galactic franchise's most recent installment, Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Director Rian Johnson found spots for friends, Star Wars megafans, and frequent collaborators. If you keep an eye out, you can spot everyone from Prince William and Prince Harry to Justin Theroux (although Not James Corden, Fyi). British fans also got excited about a very familiar face appearing alongside General Hux in some of the film's early scenes in a minor speaking part, something American audiences might not have picked up on. English comedian Adrian Edmondson stars as First Order bad guy Captain Peavey, and his appearance definitely got people talking. Edmondson is best know to many for his comic roles in the '80s and '90s, particularly in the shows The Young Ones and Bottom.

‘American Gods’ Showrunners Bryan Fuller & Michael Green Exit Starz Series [Updated]

Bad news for folks who like their mythology hyper-violent and super stylized, Hannibal duo Bryan Fuller and Michael Green have departed the Starz series American Gods as showrunners ahead of Season 2.

The Curse of Oak Island recap: 10 big moments from Season 5 Episode 4

Bad news, folks. Still No Treasure! However, The Curse of Oak Island Season 5 Episode 4 did have two big redeeming features. Firstly, it showed that the team are definitely on the money with this whole goetech drilling business — as long as they do it safely and cover all bases. Secondly, it reinforced that this story is not just about treasure; it’s also, as Rick Lagina often says, as much about the history of the island and all those who have been part of its incredible story.

Charlie Brooker's 2017 Wipe cancelled

Louisa Mellor Nov 27, 2017

Work commitments have forced Charlie Brooker to take a year's break from his annual news breakdown Wipe...

Charlie Brooker's Twitter avatar is currently a cartoon of a screaming man, sweat flying from his brow, with a facial expression halfway between anxiety and terror. It's at once a perfect encapsulation of any sane person's reaction to the year's newscape, and perhaps also an indication of just how much work Brooker currently has on his plate.

See related Peaky Blinders series 4 episode 2 review Peaky Blinders series 4 episode 1 review Peaky Blinders series 4: "there's no stopping" Aunt Polly

Too much work, it's been confirmed, to research, write and film his annual Wipe news round-up, sadly. Here's the Tweet from Brooker announcing that the expected 2017 Wipe won't be going ahead:

Got some good news and bad news. Bad news is no 2017 Wipe. Was set to do it but ran out of road.
