Fantastic Fest 2014 Review: The Stranger Delivers A Mixed Bag

29 September 2014 8:01 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Directed by Guillermo Amoedo and executive produced by Eli Roth and Nicolas Lopez (who collaborated on Aftershock, The Green Inferno, and next year's home invasion thriller Knock, Knock with Keanu Reeves), The Stranger is a vampire film that doesn't scream that it's a vampire film. In fact, it's very similar to the best parts of Kathryn Bigelow's Near Dark. Cristobal Tapia Montt stars as the titular brooding stranger Martin, who appears at the house of Monica (Alessandra Guerzoni), a mostly irate nurse, and her son Peter (Nicolas Duran), a nice young kid. Martin inquires as to the whereabouts of his ex-lover Ana, and upon being pointed to the cemetery, harbors a severe death wish after learning that Ana has died. Morose and still as a...

Eli Roth Doesn’t Consider Knock, Knock a Horror Film

26 September 2014 8:21 AM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

While his cannibal film The Green Inferno toured the film festival circuit, director Eli Roth took the earlier part of this year to helm Knock Knock in Chile. Penned by Roth, Nicolas Lopez and Guillermo Amoedo, the film found the helmer of Cabin Fever and Hostel working with Keanu Reeves as well as Lorenza Izzo and Ana de Armas.

On the Nerdist podcast over the summer, Roth expressed how quickly the production moved and he was hoping to perhaps get it ready for the Toronto International Film Festival. (That did not happen for whatever reason, obviously.) The film is said to find Reeves playing a married man whose family is out of town. His life takes a terrifying turn when two women show up at his house.

Longtime fan Tal Zimerman's new documentary Why Horror? has gotten itself a rather sexy new one-sheet featuring artwork by acclaimed horror artist Gary Pullin. The flick will be haunting Canuck theatres this Halloween via WTFilms.

"For us who are fans of horror films and are dedicated to selling them, this is a dream come true," said WTFilms co-founder Gregory Chambet. "It’s fascinating to see that people from any country or gender are horror lovers and that scary movies translate the same everywhere. This is a love letter to genre, and it couldn’t be more fitting for WTFilms."

We're Going to Eat You in The Green Inferno: Survival

1 August 2014 12:47 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

I shudder at the thought of being a victim. This very feeling has built the mega industry of horror. But to be food? That’s fear and helplessness on a whole new level. Nanai Games has tapped into the fear of being lower on the food chain by bring us The Green Inferno: Survival, a mobile game based on the Eli Roth film.

The game, much like the film, takes place after a plane crash in the Peruvian forest. You are tasked with protecting the eight survivors from wave after wave of flesh-ripping, intestine-chewing, genital-gorging cannibals.

Play will include various traps and weapons so you will need to develop a strategy if you don’t want to end up impaled on a roasting spit.

Nanai Games was founded by a group of Chilean enthusiasts and programmers, which include Nicolas Lopez, a collaborator of Roth’s. Nanai has also warned »

WTFilms launches doc strand

9 May 2014 3:53 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

New non-fiction slate from the genre specialist also features Korea by Yann Moix and Why Horror?.

French genre specialist WTFilms has picked up sales on documentary La Bare, which goes behind the scenes at the famous male stripper club La Bare in Dallas, as part of a move into non-fiction.

WTFilms co-founders Dimitri Stephanides and Gregory Chamet say the move is a natural one for their Paris-based company, which has built up a strong reputation for its genre-based fiction slate in recent years.

“We love genre but want to tackle every aspect of its wide range”, said Stephanides

“Great films like Jodorowsky’s Dune and Room 237 have inspired us. Our name means we want to sell intense, rock ’n’ roll movies, and that is valid for documentaries as well.”

La Bare was written and directed by Joe Manganiello, who played Big Dick Richie in Magic Mike. The film, which premiered at Slamdance in January, will be released »

25 April 2014 11:27 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Madrid – Uncork’d Entertainment has acquired U.S rights to “Best Worst Friends,” the latest movie from Chile’s Nicolas Lopez, whose “Aftershock,” co-written by and starring Eli Roth, was released in the U.S by Radius-The Weinstein Company.

Founded by DVD vet Keith Leopard in 2012, and working theatrical, physical home entertainment, VOD and TV distribution, Uncork’d will give “Best Worst Friends” a limited theatrical release on May 2.

It has acquired all U.S. rights save for a two-month window that kicks in for Netflix, a “Friends” co-producer, from May 2, Lopez said.

Eli Roth's Cannibal Horror The Green Inferno Gets A Chilling New Teaser!

16 April 2014 9:35 PM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Eli Roth's latest offering of globe-trotting terror takes us deep into the Peruvian rain forests, where a group of good-time-lovin' student activists soon find themselves abandoned and at the mercy of a savage, flesh-craving tribe of indigenous cannibals. Roth again joins forces with Aftershock director Nicolas Lopez, with the Chilean filmmaker this time providing Producer and Co-Writer duties while Roth directs. While the results are just as gory, manic and populated almost entirely by unlikable characters, something about the disgusting nature of the cannibal sub-genre makes their particular combination of decidedly off-colour humour and celebratory carnage a much better fit than it did in the disaster movie setting of their previous collaboration.I saw The Green Inferno when it screened back at Fantastic Fest last September, and...

Here's the 'Green Inferno' Trailer You've Been Waiting For (Exclusive)

16 April 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

2014 seems to be an embarrassment of riches when it comes to modest genre movies. And it's not just horror movies, either. Everything from Denis Villeneuve's mind-bending "Enemy" to next month's terrific slice of Southern fried revenge "Cold in July" have delighted, surprised, and made us think, at least momentarily, that we're living in some kind of golden age of genre movie, where top quality product can be released over a variety of platforms, with the same intended, oftentimes shocking punch.

And if there is one master of shock, it is none other than Eli Roth, who gave us the "Hostel" movies and "Cabin Fever." He's been out of the filmmaking game for a while, mostly due to his commitments as an actor (he starred as the Bear Jew in Quentin Tarantino's Oscar-nominated, spellcheck-proof "Inglourious Basterds"), but this year he's back in a big way. Not only did he »

Keanu Reeves Says Knock Knock

6 April 2014 10:54 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Back in February, Eli Roth announced that he would next make suburban thriller pic Knock, Knock. With production set to kick off this month, he has gathered a cast that includes Keanu Reeves, Lorenza Izzo, Ana de Armas, Ignacia Allamand, Coleen Camp and Aaron Burns.While it’s not strictly a horror movie, it’s the closest Reeves has come to the genre in a long time: though Constantine had some scary elements, it was more of a supernatural superhero film and you have to stretch all the way back to Dracula for real horror (hold the jokes about Reeves’ accent, please). But he’s clearly ready to give something more scaresome a try, agreeing to star in and executive produce the movie that Roth wrote alongside Aftershock/Green Inferno collaborators Guillermo Amoedo and Nicolas Lopez.Knock, Knock finds Reeves as a seemingly happily married man living with his wife »
