The post ‘Deep Blue Sea’ Sequel: Details Revealed About The Canceled Follow-up appeared first on /Film.
Director Jack Perez, who is maybe best known for his work on the low-budget but very infamous movie Mega Shark Vs. Giant Octopus, recently spoke with Birth.Movies.Death about the Deep Blue Sea sequel that he wrote. The movie was in the pre-production phase when Warner Bros. ultimately pulled the plug, but he was hired to write and direct the movie. Here is how he was brought
This photo from People shows SmurfWillow is wearing the same type of red hat as Papa Smurf, although nothing else has been revealed about any sort of connection between these two characters. People did catch up with Julia Roberts, though, who offered a brief statement about why she wanted to join the voice cast of this animated adventure. Here's what Julia Roberts had to say about her role in Smurfs: The Lost Village.

While 1999’s Blair Witch Project is often credited as the first horror movie made in the Pov found footage style, such a claim is actually quite untrue. Though Blair Witch is no doubt the movie that popularized the style, and Paranormal Activity the one that re-invented it and brought it into a new decade, there were actually a handful of found footage films that came out well before the horrifying tale of the witch in the woods.
Here are seven of those handheld horror movies, which all predate The Blair Witch Project!

What’s the very first found footage movie ever made?
Jack Perez, director of Some Guy Who Kills People, Monster Island, and Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus, is the mastermind behind the monstrous new CineFix web series.
In a boring beach community a handful of 20somethings who’d rather be anywhere else end up being charged with defending the town, and the world, against an onslaught of marauding gigantic monsters. Keene McRae is Mike, the brooding, sarcastic protagonist—a modern-day George Bailey who just wants to get the hell out of his crap town, only to discover that he’s charged with staying and saving the world every week. Jason McNichols plays Shawn, his painfully geeky,
New web series “Fear Force Five” is poised to take the daikaiju genre to delirious new heights when it premieres for free just in time for Christmas.
Jack Perez, director of Some Guy Who Kills People, Monster Island, and Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus, is the mastermind behind the monstrous new CineFix web series, set to debut December 23rd. How crazy will this show get? The first episode’s gargantuan threat is a giant zombie pirate with a lobster claw hand. You won’t see that in “Attack on Titan.”
Perez told Fangoria what “Fear Force Five” is all about.

Netflix has added more or less all of the low-key interesting independent films from last year with real gems like Safety Not Guaranteed and Maniac and even the lesser likes of Excision and Some Guy Who Kills People. It’s entirely possible that Lovefilm/Amazon is behind closed doors after last week’s Marvel/Netflix news, plotting something with DC comics but we will see…
Safety Not Guaranteed (2012)
One of the most charming and inventive indie films of last year was this time travel
With this movie being Scooby-Doo influenced, can you tell me about your experience with Scooby-Doo as a child? What’s one of your favorite episodes?
Spencer Parsons: Oh yeah, when I was little, it was huge to me. My little brother and I would stay over at my grandmother’s house and wake up early to watch it with my older cousins while snarfing down sugary breakfast cereals my mom never let us have. By the time Jason of Star Command came on, I’d be flying high on Count Chocula, trying to get pony rides from the cocker spaniel. So I’d call it formative.
But Scooby and any
Saturday Morning Mystery has such an interesting concept, loosely taking something that kids grew up on and turning it into a horror film where instead of it being safe, all bets are off, and there are realistic consequences. What was the genesis of how the film came to be/inspired you to make it?
Well, I just don’t want any movie to feel too safe, whether I’m directing or I’m watching. You know, Screenwriting 101 says “raise the stakes,
*Phew* finally, I’m back after a hiatus that spanned many months and many moon. I have been engaged in many other projects which have kept me from diving back into the cinematic septic tank and sampling the… delicacies that are up for offer. So kicking of my mighty return I thought I’d celebrate by including the much talked about Mega Shark versus Giant Octopus. If you follow the Schlock Value myspace page you’ll know that it’s a flick I’ve held high on my list of must see pieces of crap. In addition I’ve served up a dish of Psycho Cop, a movie so confusingly bad it’s inhuman to watch twice, but I did anyway. Just for you guys. And finally is RetarDEAD, a movie that I’m not even going to tease you with.
In 2013 they'll be producing both the horror anthology I Scream You Scream and the slasher flick Released.
I Scream You Scream is a modern day throwback to The Twilight Zone: The Movie and Creepshow, with a darker and original twist. The producers promise fright with the upcoming anthology as well as a new spin on the genre. The producers will be attaching seven to eight directors in the fall of 2012. Directors that are currently attached include Jack Perez (director of Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus and Some Guy Who Kills People), Spencer Parsons (director of Saturday Morning Massacre), Kris Swanberg (Empire Builder), and Frank Ross (director of Audrey the Trainwreck and Tiger Tail in Blue). Brian Levin

Currently, Jack Perez, Spencer Parson, Kris Swanberg and Frank Ross are attached to direct.
Perez helmed this year's Some Guy Who Kills People, meanwhile, Parsons has Saturday Morning Massacre on the way.
But even “Malcolm in the Middle” can’t help everyone Stay Alive without a little help from some friends. That’s where “Todd and the Book of Pure Evil” co-star Maggie Castle, “United States of Tara” co-star Andrew Laurence, “90210” co-star Michael Steger, and the venerable Barry Bostwick as a Vegas lounge lizard come into play.
As a group of college students celebrate in Las Vegas over Spring Break, a furious windstorm unlike any other descends upon the city. Hotel after hotel, the famed Vegas Strip is ripped apart by massive tornadoes of sand and hurricane-like winds. Nelson (Frankie Muniz) and Olive (Maggie Castle) discover that an ancient Egyptian curse has been awakened,
Directed by Jack Perez.
Starring Kevin Corrigan, Barry Bostwick, Karen Black, Arield Gade, Leo Fitzpatrick, Eric Price and Lucy Davis.
Following his release from psychiatric care, a 34 year old loner attempts to rebuild his life. When members of his old school basketball team start winding up dead, suspicion eventually falls upon him.
Horror comedy can be a notoriously difficult trick to pull off. When done with wit and finesse (Shaun of the Dead, An American Werewolf in London) and the right balance between laughs and scares, the geek friendly genre splicing can be a real winner.
John Landis, executive producer on Some Guy Who Kills People, is one of the past masters of this thorny craft, so who better - whether through labour or by example - to imbue this enjoyable flick with something of his trademark style.
Focusing on disturbed loner Ken (Kevin Corrigan; Pineapple Express,

(Josh Radnor, 2012, Us) Josh Radnor, Elizabeth Olsen, Richard Jenkins, 97 mins
University applications could well go into terminal decline as a result of this irritatingly winsome comedy, in which an archetypal New York slacker returns to his alma mater, meets an archetypal free-spirited young student (Olsen) and relives his lost youth of music, books and self-absorbed pseudo-intellectual chit chat. It's like Woody Allen without the wit.
The Perks Of Being A Wallflower (12A)
(Stephen Chbosky, 2012, Us) Logan Lerman, Emma Watson, Ezra Miller. 103 mins
Life as a high-school outsider never looked so appealing as in this well-intentioned coming-of-ager, in which Lerman's loner is adopted by a band of bohemian outcasts. Watson's post-Potter moment is somewhat overshadowed by the flamboyant Miller.
(Scott Derrickson, 2012, Us) Ethan Hawke, Juliet Rylance, James Ransone. 110 mins
Despite the old "just moved into a house with a terrible history" storyline, and a found-footage element, there's
