‘Killers’ Review

1 September 2014 11:17 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Oka AntaraKazuki KitamuraRin Takanashi, Ray Sahetapy, Epy Kusnandar, Luna Maya, Tara Basro, Mei Kurokawa | Written by Takuji Ushiyama, Timo Tjahjanto | Directed by Kimo Stamboel, Timo Tjahjanto

When presented with a film proudly stating “from the producers of The Raid” you’d expect it to be similar, but with Killers that thought would be wrong.  This isn’t a bad thing though, the subject matter makes up for it.  A psychological battle of wits between two serial killers from different backgrounds being drawn together through the lust for murder is an interesting concept, what will happen when they finally meet?

Bayu Aditya (Oka Antara) is a loser in life, a failed investigative journalist and separated from his wife he finds himself pushed into murder when defending himself from a mugging.  Nomura Shuhei (Kazuki Kitamura) is a charismatic good-looking man in his early thirties and more importantly successful.  Behind »

‘The Raid 2′ Internet Trailer: Wall to Wall Action

22 March 2014 11:43 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Director Gareth Evans’ The Raid 2: Berendal has already screened at Sundance, and while the sequel to the 2014 film The Raid: Redemption received praise for the level of technical artistry on display, many reviewers were taken aback by the film’s bone-crushing, head-splitting level of violence.

The significant marketing push for the film has not shied away from the wild martial arts action, with several trailers, a ten-minute featurette and director Evans talking about the movie’s violence and how the sequel’s plot ties in with The Raid 3. Picking up just hours after The Raid, Officer Rama (Iko Uwais) has survived the assault on the slum apartment building fortress of Boss Tama (Ray Sahetapy) and is given a new mission: infiltrate a Jakarta crime syndicate and take down the corrupt forces spreading through the police department.

With the film’s release just ...

Film Review: ‘Killers’

3 February 2014 4:55 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

At two-and-a-quarter hours, “Killers” has plenty to offer genre fans — provided they don’t bolt during its opening scene of a tied-up woman being beaten to death with a mallet by Nomura (Kazuki Kitamura), a Tokyo psycho who uploads a video of the murder to his members-only website. Directed by the Mo Brothers, aka Timo Tjahjanto and Kimo Stamboel (“Macabre”), this repugnantly savage and arguably immoral pic takes torture porn to new levels of cinematic sophistication while telling of exhibitionistic serial killers — Nomura and the Jakarta-based Bayu (Oka Antara) — who sickly compete for online clicks. Beware.

Pouring acid on the dead woman’s body while somber string music plays, Nomura proceeds to buy flowers from Hisae (Rin Takanashi), a sweet young lady who’s an obvious victim-to-be — or perhaps a survivor, depending on the Mo Brothers’ Tbd level of mercy. In the meantime, Bayu, an unsuccessful journalist and failed husband »

Nsfw Killers Trailer Brings on the Bloodshed

31 January 2014 3:22 PM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

A new, very not safe for work trailer has made its way online for Killers, the next film from moviemaking duo The Mo Brothers (Macabre), and it's hitting all the right notes... and faces. Check it out!

Killers stars Ray Sahetapy, the veteran Indonesian actor who played the crime boss Tama in The Raid.

Developed by The Mo Brothers from a story by Nightmare Detective producer Ushiyama Takuji, Killers is a dark psychological look into the minds of two men with nothing in common: Nomura, a self-obsessed serial killer residing in Tokyo, and Bayu, a failing journalist and a struggling father in Jakarta. Connected through violent incidents, both men inexplicably start to feed off each other. As their lives become more uncontrollable, each of them starts to journey into a maze of violent self-discovery.

Review of the Most Disturbing Film at Sundance - Killers

26 January 2014 1:00 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Killers turned out to be the darkest most brutal movie that I saw at Sundance. It is a really well made film, but damn... It's one of those movies that are kind of uncomfortable to watch, and you see things that cannot be unseen. It was was insanely violent and bloody, but that wasn't really what made it so brutal. It was the nature in which the violence was inflicted.

The story focuses on a serial killer named Mr. Nomura, who films himself killing the women that he lures to his home. He then posts them on a website were people can watch these live killings. There is another character in the film named Bayu that watches this killer's work. He is going through some hard times of his own with his job and family. He finds himself the victim of a robbery, but in the process, he kills the »

Film4 FrightFest Glasgow 2014 has today announced a 4(!) day event to include eight World, European and UK premieres, Ti West special event and Sunday repeat screenings in the festivals biggest programme ever. From Thursday February 27th to Sunday March 2nd, the UK’s favourite horror fantasy festival returns to its second home at the Gft for the 9th year with an impressive slate of the hottest new horror films.

The line-up in full:

Thurs 27 Feb – Gft Screen 2 21:00 In Conversation With Ti West (Special event)

Nobody does nostalgia-brushed spookiness and minimalist horror like independent director Ti West, King of the slow-burn shocker. FrightFest has been there from the very start – our video label released his 2005 debut feature The Roost – and we’ve watched with pride as the Delaware-born quirky talent has grown in global genre stature through The House Of The Devil, The Innkeepers, V/H/S and now his game-changing Eli Roth produced The Sacrament. »
