A film we've been hearing about for a while now, Devil’s Night starring Danielle Harris, finally arrived on DVD this week, and we have all the details right here.

From the Press Release:

Devil’s Night is a retro blast of blood-splattering fun from Mindscape Films & Nictophobia Films that recoils back to the 70’s and 80’s with a slaughterhouse of homages that horror fans will scream for. The movie stars Danielle Harris (Rob Zombie's Halloween, Hatchet II & III), Shawn Roberts (George A. Romero's Diary of the Dead, Resident Evil: Retribution), Steve Byers (House of the Dead, Total Recall 2012), and Boyd Banks (Dawn of the Dead 2004, George A. Romero's Land of the Dead, Hellmouth). Devil's Night is an entertaining, scary horror romp that will inevitably become part of every horror fan’s annual Halloween celebration.

The movie tells the story of five frat boys who are involved in a Halloween prank that ends in murder. »

'Night of the Living Dead' Goes Live: Christopher Harrison and Phil Pattison

25 October 2012 12:34 PM, PDT | Planet Fury | See recent Planet Fury news »

Nictophobia Films' Christopher Harrison and Phil Pattison are a unique team.

They got their start together producing the Stephen King film The Man Who Loved Flowers, which led to the release of Phil's debut feature: grindhouse zombie film Vs. the Dead. That led to doing the director's cut of Devil's Night starring Danielle Harris (Rob Zombie’s Halloween, Halloween 4) and Shawn Roberts (Diary of the Dead, Resident Evil: Afterlife) (on DVD through Black Fawn Distribution on October 30th, 2012).

Nictophobia's next project is unlike any they have ever done before; something that most filmmakers would not even attempt. They are re-imagining George A. Romero’s 1968 Night of the Living Dead as a stage adaptation. The play is directed by Christopher Bond (The Evil Dead Musical) and executive produced by the film's original creators, George A. Romero, Russ Streiner and John A. Russo, to open spring 2013. Funds are currently being raised on »

Resident Evil: Retribution Review

4 October 2012 7:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Naff. That’s Resident Evil: Retribution summed up in one beautifully British word. It’s glitzy, it’s showy, it tries ever so hard (in some departments) but ultimately it’s all a bit naff.

Let’s start at the very beginning, just as the film does. In a not unimpressive opening sequence we see a fight aboard a container ship unfold in reverse. Cut to Milla Jovovich’s Alice staring into the camera taking us on a gimmicky and not all that clear virtual tour of the earlier films in the series. That this visually stylised display sheds more light on the quality of writing contained therein than on the preceding story speaks prophetic volumes.

Once the narrative really kicks in though we are treated to a more mixed affair. Sure, the dialogue throughout remains atrocious and the premise (that Alice and her rescue team must fight through an »

Movie Review - Resident Evil: Retribution (2012)

3 October 2012 11:48 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Resident Evil: Retribution, 2012.

Directed by Paul W.S. Anderson.

Starring Milla Jovovich, Michelle Rodriguez, Shawn Roberts, Kevin Durand, Sienna Guillory, Aryana Engineer, Colin Salmon, Johann Urb, Boris Kodjoe and Li Bingbing.

Synopsis:

Alice fights alongside a resistance movement in the continuing battle against the Umbrella Corporation and the undead.

Even the most ardent support of the Resident Evil series would have to admit it’s a small miracle there have been five films made and that the productions have stretched out over a decade. As somewhat of a fan of the series, I still find little to recommend in this, the fifth instalment.

With the exception of the visual treat that is Milla Jovovich, what has kept me watching the series, is the filmmaker’s commendable efforts to actually try and progress the foundations built in the first film; the T-Virus has spread from a single building, to the city, to the world, »

15 September 2012 5:41 PM, PDT | OnTheFlix | See recent OnTheFlix news »

New Resident Evil 5,Retribution movie delivered great action,thrills & more. Screen Gems (Sony) released their new action flick "Resident Evil 5: Retribution" into theaters this weekend. I just checked it out,and thought it was very entertaining. Milla rocked the tight body suit like nobody's business,and served up even more awesome fighting action. It stars: Milla Jovovich, Michelle Rodriguez, Sienna Guillory, Kevin Durand, Shawn Roberts, Colin Salmon, Johann Urb, Boris Kodjoe,and Li Bingbing. The new flick kicked off where the 4th installment left off. Alice (Milla Jovovich) and the gang are seen fighting on a boat. Alice's former ally Jill Valentine is being mind controlled by a red scarab attached to her throat, and she's leading the attack. Finally, Alice shoots down one of the planes which crashes,and knocks her unconscious into the water. After that, it kicks to a different scene,which appears to have Alice in a completely different, »

Title: Resident Evil: Retribution Directed Be: Paul W.S. Anderson Starring: Millia Jovovich, Sienna Guillory, Michelle Rodriguez, Aryana Engineer, Bingbing Li, Boris Kodjoe, Johanna Urb, Kevin Durand, Oded Fehr, Colin Salmon, Shawn Roberts Quality-wise, the “Resident Evil” franchise has been on the decline ever since the first film arrived back in 2002, but, let’s face it, was the series ever really about quality? “Resident Evil” is for action, monsters and Alice, and while the first four films of the franchise held on, they certainly started to slip, leaning far more on the excuse of stemming from a videogame than making the leaps necessary to turn a videogame into an enthralling moviegoing  [ Read More ] »

Resident Evil: Retribution (2012)

15 September 2012 12:18 PM, PDT | Planet Fury | See recent Planet Fury news »

Directed by: Paul W. S. Anderson

Written by: Paul W. S. Anderson

Starring: Milla Jovovich, Michelle Rodriguez, Kevin Durand, Sienna Guillory, Shawn Roberts, Aryana Engineer, Colin Salmon, Johann Urb, Oded Fehr, Boris Kodjoe, Li Bingbing

Well, Alice didn't get to stay on that big boat for very long.

The evil Umbrella Corporation swoops in, blows stuff up, and manages to capture Alice for their continued nefarious purposes. Meanwhile, they also run gigantic simulations of various undead attacks around the world, powered by hundreds and hundreds of cheap and disposable clones. They torture Alice for awhile, who then escapes along with a couple of clones, including one that thinks she is Alice's daughter. Alice doesn't tell her that she isn't.

Alice teams up with Ada Wong (Li Bingbing), who apparently used to work for her primary enemy Albert Wesker (Shawn Roberts), which should make her evil, but apparently she stopped being »

New Resident Evil 5,Retribution Movie Clip Shows 6 Minutes Of Milla & New Footage

14 September 2012 2:37 PM, PDT | OnTheFlix | See recent OnTheFlix news »

New Resident Evil 5,Retribution movie clip shows 6 minutes Of Milla & new footage. Recently, this new Resident Evil 5: Retribution movie clip/featurette (below), hit the net,and serves up a cool 6 minutes of main star Milla Jovovich,talking about the film,along with more footage from the film. In the new clip, they showed more awesome footage of Milla's character Alice in heavy action. Then they showed interview footage of Milla talking about the film,and she mentioned that she was finally glad to get out of that skin-tight suit she had to wear. However,it did look great on her. She definitely didn't like the suburban Alice that is featured at the beginning of the movie,because she prefers being the more fierce warrior Alice. I definitely agree with that statement. She went on to talk more about the film,and it showed more interesting clips. Check it out, »

Film Review: ‘Resident Evil: Retribution 3D’

14 September 2012 5:01 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Just as the series starts to get smart, it fumbles and gets clumsy, like a zombie.

With the exception of the films of George Romero, the zombie genre has never been my thing. I’m sure, the recent success of the television series The Walking Dead has plenty to do with its strong cast and dramatic stories (so I’m told), but when zombies are involved, my interest goes out the window. The same can be said for the theatrical adaptation of the Resident Evil video game series. Until the third film in this wildly successful franchise, I kinda hated these movies. I use the word “kinda” because when the mesmerizing Milla Jovovich is involved, I tend to stop dead in my tracks. Despite being the star of a popcorn action franchise, Jovovich is actually a pretty decent actress who along with husband and writer/director Paul W.S. Anderson have »

‘Resident Evil: Retribution’ a gigantic load of old toss

Resident Evil: Retribution

Directed by Paul W.S. Anderson

Written by Paul W.S. Anderson

USA/Canada/Germany, 2012

For schoolchildren, September heralds the end of an enjoyable epoch – the end to all of the carefree hedonism and devil-may-care attitudes of summer vacation. In its place are the daunting expectations of school, the angst of making new friends, and the apathy towards uninspired subject primers. September is a dreadful month, but, for most kids, the year only gets better from that point on.

For critics, September has the exact same connotation. September heralds the end of summer movies, the end to all the pyrotechnics and computer generated delirium of big-budget commercial blockbusters. In its place are studio afterthoughts (movies deemed too rubbish to be lumped in with the aforesaid), which are consequently dumped in mid-September, on unassuming audiences without apology or impunity.

Yes, September marks the spectre of terrible movies, and nothing typifies »

Weekend Box Office Preview: Resident Evil: Retribution, Finding Nemo 3D releases try ignite burnt out box office

Two wide 3D releases in Screen Gems' Resident Evil: Retribution and Disney's Finding Nemo re-release will try breath some life into this ailing box office. Res Evil starring Milla Jovovich under the usual helm of Paul W.S. Anderson, makes its debut in 3,012 theaters. Pic catering to a male, sci-fi-driven audience, also stars Michelle Rodriguez, Sienna Guillory, Kevin Durand, Shawn Roberts, Colin Salmon, Johann Urb Boris Kodjoe and Li Bing Bing. Finding Nemo reincarnated in 3D makes its return to the bigscreen almost 10 years after its May 30th, 2003 release, finding 2,904 theaters. Pic should turn in solid coin thanks to families, considering the current lack of animated releases. In its original release form, Nemo turned in a big $339.7 million domestic gross. The one to go for dramatically, if you're in the mood for a heavy film, is naturally Paul Thomas Anderson's (There Will Be Blood) The Master. Pic which has awards written all over it, »
