Raiders! The Making Of The Greatest Fan Film Ever Made review

30 July 2015 10:18 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The story of the Raiders Of The Lost Ark fan film is brought brilliantly to life in this new documentary...

I love fan films. I remember the very first fan film I ever saw: Hardware Wars (a Star Wars spoof). I’ve been hooked ever since. They’ve come a long way since then, some of them nowadays boasting a production value that almost rivals Hollywood productions. When I watch, for example, the Piano Guys’ Cello Wars (which in essence, is still a fan film), I’m amazed how much fan films have evolved, but my favorites remain the older ones, like Closet Cases Of The Nerd Kind (who can forget those singing mailboxes?).

But while some fan films of that era were happy to simply parody blockbuster movies, in 1982, two kids from Ocean Springs, Mississippi, Chris Strompolos (11 years old) and Eric Zala (12 years old) set our to produce a »

Eli Roth on Snapchat Mystery: A Lot of People Have Guessed the Murderer

20 July 2015 1:18 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Producing a murder mystery for Snapchat last weekend reminded Eli Roth of his early days as an aspiring filmmaker.

“I felt like I was in seventh grade and I was shooting something in my parents’ basement,” the “Hostel” director told Variety.

The project emerged from Roth’s digital network CryptTV, and aired live Sunday. The new media spin on “Clue” found social media influencers like Logan Paul, Nick Bateman, Simone Shepherd and others trying to survive a party at a creepy mansion. It has already drawn more than 750,000 total opens on Snapchat with more people continuing to watch as the day progresses. The success has prompted Roth to promise future projects on the video messaging service. Other social media stars have reached out to the director, asking to be involved in similar events.

Eli Roth Producing Snapchat Murder Mystery

19 July 2015 9:15 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Snapchat users will be able to figure out if the butler did it in real time.

In an intriguing, digital era twist, CryptTV, the digital network co-founded by “Hostel” maestro Eli Roth, will host a live murder mystery on the video messaging service this Sunday.

The evening will center on a number of social media influencers, all of whom boast extensive Facebook, Instagram and Twitter followings. As part of the event, they are invited to a party at a mansion, where they will be “killed off” one by one.

After the party ends and the bodies finish piling up, viewers will have 24 hours to scan through CryptTV’s Snapchat for clues to find the killer before the evidence vanishes. Snapchat has a time limit for how long recipients can view their messages, one of the reasons it is more commonly associated with sexting than detective work.

Eli Roth's New Movie Is About How Much He Hates People Who Overreact On Twitter

15 July 2015 5:40 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Horror director Eli Roth.s latest movie, The Green Inferno, may be a genre throwback to exploitation fare like Cannibal Holocaust, Cannibal Ferox, and really any movie with the word cannibal in the title, but he has another agenda as well. He wants to point out the hypocrisy of people who express outrage about the state of the world on social media but who refuse to do anything beyond tweet. Talking to Hero Complex at San Diego Comic-Con recently, Roth discussed what he calls Social Justice Warriors, and how people see something on Facebook or Twitter and, though their hearts may be in the right place, go overboard with their reaction to something they just found out about, spouting off about situations they don.t even necessarily understand. The inspiration for The Green Inferno sprang from this. He said: [Y]ou see people get involved in a cause that they »

Will Phase Three End the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

14 July 2015 4:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Ant-man hits theaters on Friday, and with its release marks the kick-off for Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Depending on how big of a fan you are, this news will come as either exciting, or painfully boring. A surprise appearance by Agent Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) in Iron Man‘s credits enthralled millions of filmgoers and teased a project geeks only dreamed about. Two box-office-record-breaking Avenger films later and the shared universe has proven itself an unparalleled success in terms of commercial filmmaking, but after the long wait to see Tony, Cap, Thor, and Hulk take on Thanos is realized, the streak of Marvel characters met with open arms and another $100 million weekend may be coming to an end.

Watch: Comic Con Teaser For 'The Green Inferno,' Eli Roth Says Film Takes On "Self Righteous" Social Justice Warriors

13 July 2015 2:44 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

If you've ever had people get under your skin by relentlessly pushing various causes down your throat, then perhaps Eli Roth's upcoming cannibal horror "The Green Inferno" is the release you're looking for. The director takes very pointed aim at SJWs—social justice warriors—with his latest effort, and he explains how it all came about to Hero Complex. "I wanted to write a movie that was about modern activism. I see that a lot of people want to care and want to help, but in general I feel like people don’t really want to inconvenience their own lives. And I saw a lot of people just reacting to things on social media. These social justice warriors. ‘This is wrong, this is wrong, this is wrong.’ And they’re just tweeting and retweeting. They’re not actually doing anything," the director explained. Read More: Tiff Review: Eli Roth »
