[A Brew To A Kill] Septic Man and The Brown Note

21 June 2016 1:33 PM, PDT | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

I don’t believe in Karma. But there may be something to it. I’m sitting in my basement getting a whiff of my own shit while trying to write about a movie called Septic Man. Nothing like a good rain to get the sewer backed up. Ugh. Here’s hoping I can get power through this while holding my nose.

Water contamination in a small Canadian town forces an evacuation. That is when plumber Jack (Jason David Brown) is approached by a strange man (Julian Richings) who asks him to look into the cause. Years ago, Jack was able to fix a similar problem and received no recognition. After convincing his pregnant wife (Molly Dunsworth) to leave without him, he goes to investigate at the water treatment plant. Unfortunately for Jack he his trapped in a giant septic tank by metal mouthed, non talker, Lord Auch (Tim Burd) and »

Movie Review – The Witch (2016)

10 March 2016 10:15 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Witch, 2016.

Written and Directed by Robert Eggers.

Starring Anya Taylor-Joy, Ralph Ineson, Kate Dickie, Harvey Scrimshaw, Ellie Grainger, Lucas Dawson and Julian Richings.

Synopsis:

A family in 1630’s New England is torn apart by the forces of witchcraft, black magic and possession.

In the forest, no-one can hear you scream. Except for the horrid witches lurking in amongst the darkened trees and muddy terrain as they wait patiently before pouncing on you in the most unsuspecting ways. Witches, whether flying broomsticks in Oz, hiding in plain sight on the hunt for smelly children or the more vile incarnations, have frightened many for generations, but none have managed to capture their true, unyielding terror than in writer – director Robert Eggers’ debut The Witch (or The VVitch as it’s known), this year’s most unforgettable horror film.

To say The Witch will stay with you long after the final credits »

‘The Witch’ Review

22 February 2016 7:23 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Anya Taylor-Joy, Ralph Ineson, Kate Dickie, Harvey Scrimshaw, Ellie Grainger, Lucas Dawson, Bathsheba Garnett, Sarah Stephens, Julian Richings, Wahab Chaudhry | Written and Directed by Robert Eggers

“Dost thou remember that I love thee?”

The Witch is a searing emotional calamity of a film. Its scope is at once frighteningly vast and achingly intimate, its themes of societal violence and perversion borne out in miniature through the collapse of a desperate Calvinist family struggling to survive their self-imposed exile on the American frontier. While religious hysteria drives the sense of inevitable doom and insecurity on which the film trades, it feeds in turn on a surprising source. Love, the genuine love that exists between members of a close-knit family, and a sense of flawed but deep-seated goodness in the film’s driving personality, give The Witch its particular heartbreaking strength. Horror thrives on violations of the status quo, and this »

“The Witch” seeks to be the next small scale horror success story

17 February 2016 4:31 AM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

While the studio system has more or less given up on truly attempting to put out thought provoking horror films, the independent circuit has really picked up the slack over the past handful of years. As many of you know, I raved often last year about It Follows, with many being huge fans of The Babadook the year before that. This year, we’re getting a top tier title early, as Robert Eggers’ movie The Witch is coming to theaters this week. Truly a horse of a different color, this is likely to do very well, finding a potential sweet spot between period character study and overt fright flick. Ever since it debuted at the Sundance Film Festival, it’s been building a solid core of strong reviews and fandom, so don’t expect this one to disappear quickly. The film is a period piece set in 1600’s New England, »

‘Septic Man’ DVD Review

12 January 2016 1:27 PM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Jason David BrownJulian Richings, Robert Maillet, Molly Dunsworth, Timothy Burd, Stephen McHattie, Nicole G. Leier  | Written by Tony Burgess | Directed by Jesse Thomas Cook

Some films are just crap, but Septic Man is literally about it. In the first few minutes you may get to see a lot of human waste, but if truth be told if the movie has a bigger problem than that… it may be slightly constipated.

Jack (Jason David Brown) is a sewage worker who is known to be good at his job. When government official Phil Prosser (Julian Richings) gives him an offer he can’t (or isn’t) allowed to refuse he finds himself investigating problems in the city water system which are leading to a plague of diseases, even death. When he finds the source though he finds himself trapped in the water treatment facility at the mercy of two strange brothers intent on killing him. »
