Ashes and an Apocalypse of Greed: A Movie Review

19 December 2011 7:00 AM, PST | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

*full disclosure: a screener of this film was provided by Osiris Entertainment.

Director: Elias Matar.

Writers: Edward E. Romero, and Elias Matar.

Cast: Enrique Almeida, Joel Bryant and Chris Trouble Delfosse.

When the subtitle of the movie poster of Ashes simply says, “We All Fall Down,” the connection this film is making with the classic nursery rhyme, “Ring a Ring o’ Roses,” is almost appropriate. Ashes is just a variation of “atishoo,” an onomatopoeia for a sneezing sound.

Had this film actually made more of a fuller emphasis with the verse, more people would be making the same leap of faith that director/writer Elias Matar has made—he believes the poem is about the bubonic plague.

But with this movie, the necrosis that develops is far worse. It numbs the nerves and dulls the brain. Eventually, all these patients are going to become zombies. But that is not what this film is about. »

Indie Thriller Alert: Ashes Picked Up by Osiris Entertainment: DVD Preview

19 November 2011 9:44 AM, PST | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

Osiris Entertainment has picked up the indie thriller Ashes for a future release, while Time Warner has acquired video-on-demand rights for this title. Release dates are to be formalized, but expect Ashes to become available in early 2012 with a vod release likely to come earlier than the DVD release (prediction).

Ashes is a story of an obsessive doctor who turns patients in to shells of their former selves. Infected with a virus, these patients turn everyone around them into mulch to the doctor's despair. This is a small film which includes a few action packed sequences and fans of indie thrillers might want to look out for this title in the coming year. A trailer for Ashes is below.

Release Date: 2011-2012 (DVD, VOD).

Director: Elias Matar.

Writer: Edward E. Romero and Elias Mataar.

Cast: Enrique Almeida, Joel Bryant, Chris Trouble Delfosse, Sierra Fisk, Richard Gant, Diane Ayala Goldner, Aldo Gonzalez, »

Tony Todd Hosts a Carnival of Blood in this Trailer for Jack the Reaper

27 April 2011 1:30 PM, PDT | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

Jack the Reaper is another film from American World Pictures, which was previously titled One-by-One: Death's Door (Dread). The film stars the prolific actor Tony Todd (Hatchet II), Sally Kirkland (Bruce Almighty), and Douglas Tait (Freddy vs. Jason), in a real coming of age film. Instead of getting their first razor, several teenagers learn about the industrial revolution the hard way, by sharp axe and disfigured monster. The first trailer for Jack the Reaper was released last week and the clip is reposted here, for those who missed it.

The synopsis for Jack the Reaper:

"A group of teens set out on a field trip to a railroad museum only to encounter "Railroad Jack," who makes sure their bus crashes and forces them to explore his carnival, as he picks them off one at a time" (Dread).

Director/writer: Kimberly Seilhamer.

Cast: Chris Bruno, Jay Gillespie, and Joel Bryant. »
