Inglourious Basterds

14 July 2016 10:00 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

A die-hard believer in the power of film (in particular 35mm), Quentin Tarantino reimagines the end of World War II with the Third Reich trapped inside a burning movie theater. The cast is typically Tarantinian, including turns from Brad Pitt as the Southern-fried squadron leader Aldo Raine, Rod Taylor as Winston Churchill (!) and Tfh’s own Eli Roth as “The Bear Jew”. But it’s Christoph Waltz as Hans Landa, a glint-eyed monster known as “The Jew Hunter” who steals the show (and won an Academy Award for his trouble.)

Fullscreen, Crypt TV Team Up For Horror Series Competition

14 July 2016 1:59 PM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Digital studio Fullscreen and Eli Roth’s horror platform Crypt TV are searching for the next great horror series. The two companies have joined forces for El Terror, a filmmaking competition that will award a series deal to its winning creative team.

The rules for El Terror are simple: Potential entrants can head over to the contest’s official website, where they will be invited a single 30-second clip that shows off the concept for their most terrifying, bone-chilling web series idea. Submissions will be accepted until September 1st, at which point the contest’s three celebrity judges -- Roth, Danny Trejo, and Julia Kelly -- will choose 10 finalists, all of whom will develop “series bibles” alongside Crypt TV. Ultimately, a winner will be selected, and their series will be developed for distribution on the recently-launched fullscreen streaming video service.

The El Terror contest is designed to be purely democratic, »

Baskin review – gut-churning Turkish shocker

14 July 2016 1:30 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

This gory, malevolent horror flick cuts freely between nightmare reality and vivid dreams, and is always icky

This slowburn Turkish shocker suggests what might have happened if Once Upon a Time in Anatolia’s philosophically inclined patrolmen had blundered into Eli Roth territory. We’re riding with a squad of grizzled law enforcers, halting their musky after-hours banter to provide backup in an ominously remote location: a gore-blasted museum of the macabre showcasing the year’s most warped costume and production design. Writer-director Can Evrenol’s cribs are blatant (don’t look now, there’s a Lucio Fulci bit) and Roth’s influence is felt in a punitive streak that hints these non-pc coppers are getting exactly what they deserve. Yet right through to his clever-bleak payoff, Evrenol finds forceful means of disconcerting us, cutting freely between nightmare reality and vivid dreams, forever landing on the ickiest of textures. Sensitive souls need not apply, »

Eli Roth’s Clown Invading Homes in Blu-ray and DVD Release

14 July 2016 11:35 AM, PDT | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

One of the seemingly most joyful heroes of society, who’s believed to help bring families together in happiness, is actually proving to be one of America’s most menacing villains. Clowns, who are supposed to enter families’ homes in order to provide joy to children, are actually thriving on their secret ability to break apart kids’ bonds with their relatives. That menacing invasion of families’ security is chronicled in producer Eli Roth and director Jon Watts’ horror film, ‘Clown.’ The filmmakers’ twist on the scary clown genre will infiltrate homes when Dimension Films and Anchor Bay Entertainment distribute the movie on Blu-ray and DVD, for the suggested retail price of $26.99  [ Read More ]

Raiders fan film documentary coming to Blu-ray August 16

13 July 2016 5:25 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The amazing true story of the greatest fan film ever made is coming home on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital!

Drafthouse Films and Mvd Entertainment have announced the upcoming home video release of Raiders!: The Story of the Greatest Fan Film Ever Made on Blu-ray/DVD combo pack on August 16th.

After Steven Spielberg's classic Raiders of the Lost Ark was released 35 years ago, three 11-year-old boys from Mississippi set out on what would become a 7-year-long labor of love and tribute to their favorite film: a faithful, shot-for-shot adaptation of the action adventure film, which the New York Times calls "a testament to the transporting power of movie love." They finished every scene...except one; the film's explosive airplane set piece.

Over two decades later, the trio reunited with the original cast members from their childhood in order to complete their masterpiece in what IGN has dubbed "the Boyhood of fan movies. »

12 July 2016 3:30 PM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

The journey for Jon Watts' Clown has been very, very long. It was filmed just over in Ottawa in 2012 after Watts made a fake trailer for the film. Then Clown premiered on the festival circuit over a year and a half ago at the beginning of 2015. Even the success of Watts' next film, the festival darling Cop Car, did not seem to be enough to get Clown out into the public's hands any sooner. Today we can finally share with you the announcement for the Blu-ray and DVD release next month, on August 23rd.  Producer Eli Roth (Knock Knock, Hostel franchise) and director Jon Watts (Spider-Man: Homecoming, Cop Car) team up to bring audiences a haunting twist on the scary clown.  Clown arrives...

How Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA Became a Kung-Fu Fanatic

5 July 2016 11:11 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Filmmaker and hip-hop legend RZA made dreams come true for kung-fu fans on a recent Saturday night by programming a double feature of classic martial arts films “Five Element Ninjas” and “House of Traps” at New York’s Metrograph theater.

The original member of the Wu-Tang Clan made three appearances at the event and introduced the 1982 kung-fu titles, both of which were directed by prolific martial arts film director Cheh Chang and produced by Hong Kong’s legendary production company Shaw Brothers. “Five Element Ninjas” follows a young martial artist seeking revenge against the ninja who killed his teacher and brethren, while “House of Traps” centers on a team of skilled fighters making their way through a house rigged with deadly traps.

Both sold out screenings were packed with kung-fu cinema devotees, many of whom felt compelled to express their love for the genre during a Q&A with RZA, »

Movie Review – Cell (2016)

5 July 2016 5:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Cell, 2016.

Directed by Tod Williams.

Starring John Cusack, Samuel L. Jackson and Isabelle Fuhrman.

Synopsis:

When a powerful signal is broadcast across mobile networks worldwide, cell phone users’ minds are instantly and dangerously re-programmed. Heading north through New England in search of his wife and son, Clay Riddell (Cusack) is joined by a group of survivors hoping to fend off the bloodthirsty and hyper-connected “phoners.”

When I read Stephen King’s Cell ten years ago (2006), like many of his books, I thought it would make a great movie.  Dimension Films thought the same thing and bought rights to make the movie with Eli Roth (Hostel, Cabin Fever) directing. Roth dropped out in 2009 and then finally in 2012 and 2013, John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson casting was announced with a Saban Films release date on VOD in June and theatrical release in July.  I was not familiar with new director Tod Williams »
