Exclusive Video Interview With Mia Maestro On The Strain

13 October 2014 12:29 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Strain may have just concluded its first season, but the fun continued last week during the New York Comic-Con Lunar Eclipse party. Fans of the FX series were invited to The Delancy Rooftop Garden Nightclub where some of the cast, including Mia Maestro, Natalie Brown, Jim Watson, Robert Maillet and Robin Atkin Downes, were in attendance.

Created by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan, who also penned the trilogy that spawned the show, The Strain follows Cdc workers Eph (Corey Stoll) and Nora (Maestro) as they battle the outbreak of a vampiric infection. Though it had its ups and downs, the first season of FX’s spooky series went over quite well with fans and critics alike, providing a ton of fun and thrills along the way.

During the Lunar Eclipse party, which included decor and cocktails inspired by the hit show, we had the chance to sit down »

The Strain – Episode 12 Review

3 October 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Martin Carr reviews the twelfth episode of The Strain

As episode twelve concludes we are within sight of the finishing line. Season finales, cliff hangers and pivotal plot points loom like spectres in the night. Past and present coalesce in a Grimm fable of East European origin. A place where old wife’s tales are passed down through generations, whispered round camp fires warning of an ancient evil lurking out there in the dark. Best bolt your doors and windows; because something wicked this way comes…..

When I was child like many of my generation there was no internet, barely anything computerised while mobile phones were a pipedream laughably inconceivable. We were raised on books, books and more books, with the occasional game of Monopoly or Risk thrown in. The point is simple; we had nothing more than our imaginations to depend on for entertainment. Now although those days are well behind me, »

The Strain’s Richard Sammel on Humanizing His Vampire Nazi and Channeling Hannibal Lecter

8 September 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Once Richard Sammel completes his role as Nazi turned vampire Thomas Eichhorst on The Strain, he’d like to display his lighter side on a series like Suits. Seriously. Talking on the phone from his home in Paris, the 53-year-old German-born silver fox makes a point to highlight more comedic work he’s done on stage and screen. And in conversation, he’s markedly looser and more cerebral than his tightly wound, ultimately corrupted Strain alter ego. [Note: Spoilers up through last night’s episode of The Strain from here on out.]But after last night’s episode, in which we witness the turning point of Eichhorst’s origin story (and finally see the Master’s ugly punim) via his willing transformation into strigoi, we were primarily compelled to inquire about TV’s most reviled undead SS serviceman. Sammel, a prodigious talker, also expressed his awe at massive co-star Robert Maillet (who, while unsung, gives the Master his physical »

‘Brick Mansions’ Blu-ray Review

6 September 2014 10:29 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Paul Walker, David Belle, RZA, Gouchy Boy, Catalina Denis, Ayisha Issa, Carlo Rota, Andreas Apergis, Richard Zeman, Robert Maillet, Bruce Ramsay | Written by Luc Besson, Bibi Naceri | Directed by Camille Delamarre

Hollywood remaking a foreign film is far from a new phenomenon, and adaption in this manner has yielded some truly great films. We have seen such successes like Seven Samurai  transformed into The Magnificent Seven, and Infernal Affairs  altered into The Departed.

On the other hand, there are movies like Brick Mansions. This remake of the Luc Besson / Pierre Morel French parkour action fest District B13  has much in common with the original including plot structure, action sequences, and even shares one of the co-leads. What it lacks is energy, craftsmanship, and originality.  Fans of the original have little reason to examine this new take, and those coming in fresh will also find it difficult enjoy this tired dud of an action movie. »

Septic Man Movie Review

17 August 2014 7:53 AM, PDT | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Title: Septic Man Director: Jesse Thomas Cook Starring: Jason David Brown, Molly Dunsworth, Julian Richings, Tim Burd, Robert Maillet, Stephen McHattie A film with a title as schlocky as “Septic Man” has… well, a certain potential, let’s be honest. And yet this willfully distasteful Canadian horror flick — which almost emits an unwholesome effluvia of human waste and other bodily fluids directly through the screen — is borderline incomprehensible and thoroughly unengaging throughout, lacking even in enough distinctive personality to make it worthwhile for self-flagellating fans of low-budget shock and gore. The film unfolds in a small town in Ontario, Canada, where an opening credits narration informs viewers that there’s something in the  [ Read More ]

Film Review: ‘Septic Man’

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

Anyone clamoring for a scatological horror movie will get what’s coming to them with “Septic Man.” The Canadian oddity about a sewer worker who oh-so-slowly transforms into a monstrous mutant proudly distinguishes itself as the crappiest chiller in recent memory, quite literally. Overflowing with bodily fluids (and solids) but lacking the sort of gonzo calling cards that would make it required viewing for extreme-cinema aficionados, director Jesse Thomas Cook’s humorless third low-budget feature is a monotonous mess. It’s set to make the rounds from VOD bow to limited theatrical release to DVD debut in just eight days, but it would be more apt to flush this steaming pile straight away into the annals of trivial genre junk.

Cook immediately announces his intentions with a stomach-churning pre-credits sequence of an anonymous young woman puking and pooping her guts out on a dingy bathroom set that grimly recalls the worst of the “Saw” franchise. »

Movie Review – Septic Man (2013)

15 August 2014 1:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Septic Man, 2013

Directed by Jesse Thomas Cook

Starring Jason David Brown, Molly Dunsworth, Robert Maillet, Tim Burd, Julian Richings

Synopsis:

A sewage worker gets trapped inside a septic tank during a water contamination crisis and undergoes a hideous transformation. To escape, he must team up with a docile Giant and confront the murdering madman known as Lord Auch.

From the synopsis outset, Septic Man sounds like Troma’s The Toxic Avenger just with a (ever so slightly) larger budget, but there is actually a lot more to this tragic and very gross horror than meets the eye. It certainly isn’t for the faint of heart, and it really shouldn’t be watched before or after a big meal, but there is something beautiful about Septic Man.

The plot of Jack falling into the pit and attempting to get out with the help of a misunderstood giant is really just »
