Deadfall Trail and Losing Focus: A Movie Review

Director: Roze.

Writers: Roze, Candace Rose, and Josh Staman.

Deadfall Trail is a smallish indie production, which released in some theatres May 16, 2010. Recently, has been hosting this horror title, as part of its online movies for April, 2011. This is director Roze's first feature film and so, the film suffers from some pacing issues, a stumbling plot direction and a missing unifying theme. The result is a beautiful (cinematography) film, but there is the mundane and a convoluted story to wade through, in the meantime.

Paul (Cavin Gray Schneider), John (Slade Hall) and Julian (Shane Dean) set out for an extended wilderness survival hike.

DVD and Blu-ray Releases: November 2nd - My Super Psycho Fallen Centurion Diaries

This week's DVD and Blu-ray offerings are no longer a cash-sucking onslaught like the last few weeks, which does make it easier for our wallets.

First up, Centurion, Neil Marshall's fun epic, is finally available for us to take home, and we can definitely recommend it with good conscience. Also, series and movies from TV and their dead-tree companions are out, and they are surprisingly decent in this batch. (Well, one re-release is surely capitalizing on the popularity of its actor, and we bet you can figure out which one that is.) Finally, don't forget the duo release of a couple of Roger Corman flicks!


Directed by Neil Marshall

In Centurion (review), the Roman Empire stretches from Egypt to Spain, and East as far as the Black Sea. But in northern Britain, the relentless onslaught of conquest has ground to a halt in the face of the guerrilla
