This year’s Shockathon kicks off at 11am with the surprise movies which guarantees a sci-fi cocktail of weird creatures, crude humour and hilarious action. Here is the press release:

Next up is the UK Premiere of The Vatican Tapes, a dynamic, unusual and thrilling exorcism shocker by Crank director Mark Neveldine. This is followed by the World Premiere of The Unspoken, a chill-orientated sinister ghost story with an insidious sting in its tale. »

Halloween FrightFest to shift from night to day

2 October 2015 3:00 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Guests include James Purefoy and Olga Kurylenko for UK premiere of Stephen S. Campanelli’s Momentum.

Film4 FrightFest has unveiled the line-up for its annual Halloween event.

Unlike previous editions, this year will see the event take place throughout the day as opposed to being the traditional all-nighter.

For the second consecutive year, the Halloween event will take place at FrightFest’s spiritual home of London’s Prince Charles Cinema on Oct 24.

Talking of the change in structure, FrightFest co-director Alan Jones said: “Enough with the after dark jitters, caffeine fixes and trying to stay awake through the last movie. FrightFest is always ahead of the curve when it comes to redefining event experiences so here’s our latest innovation.

“All before midnight you’ll delight in fright with six of the must-see movies of the moment. Carefully selected by the FrightFest team of experts to show exactly where the genre is right now, these six nightmares »

‘Shark Killer’ DVD Review

26 July 2015 10:27 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Derek Theler, Erica Cerra, Arnold Vosloo, Paul du Toit, Wayne Harrison | Written by Sheldon Wilson, Richard Beattie | Directed by Sheldon Wilson

Good god. Has it come to this? Someone, somewhere decided that they wanted to make a heist movie. But how to sell it to international markets? Why not stick a shark in it! And so, by some massive stretch of the imagination Shark Killer was born. For this review I will be a lazy as the filmmakers… So here’s a cut and paste of the official synopsis:

They’ve always been present, they’ve always been deadly, and this summer they’re back in the water.  When one of nature’s deadliest creatures threaten your town’s tourist-beach-boom-summer, you need one man with a very big knife.  You need Chase Walker. When he’s not got his hands full as a lady killer, Chase Walker is a Shark Killer. »

DVD Review – Shark Killer (2015)

20 July 2015 5:08 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Shark Killer, 2015.

Directed by Sheldon Wilson.

Starring Derek Theler, Erica Cerra, Arnold Vosloo, Paul du Toit and Wayne Harrison.

Synopsis:

A shark wrangler with a fear of the sea has to hunt a shark to retrieve a diamond from its stomach for his crooked brother.

In many ways it is unfortunate that Steven Spielberg did such an amazing job with Jaws, as every single shark adventure that has been made ever since just pales in comparison with what is pretty much a perfect movie. That isn’t to say that other shark movies aren’t enjoyable but you do spend a lot of time pointing things out and saying “That was in Jaws” or “They stole that from Jaws”.

And this is very true for the first five minutes of Shark Killer, as we are on a Hawaiian beach (or so it says) with a town official declaring the beaches »
