V/H/S brought us stories from Ti West, Adam Wingard, Glen McQuaid, and Joe Swanberg, among others. V/H/S 2 gave us far superior films from Gareth Evans and Timo Tjahjanto, Gregg Hale and Eduardo Sanchez, Jason Eisener, Simon Barrett, and Adam Wingard (again). For the third entry of the franchise, V/H/S Viral delivers another mixed bag, with entries from Justin Benson and Aaron Moorehead, Marcel Sarmiento, Nacho Vigalondo, Gregg Bishop, and Todd Lincoln, whose segment "Gorgeous Vortex" was cut from the film for mysterious reasons. The series' most challenging aspect remains its wrap-around segments, which serve to loosely link the stories together. For an anthology, one would assume that these would be among the strongest in the film; sadly, that's not the case. "Vicious Circles" features...

Visionary director Nacho Vigalondo impressed audiences with his time travel thiller Timecrimes and his latest movie Open Windows has also been well-received (read our review here). While out talking the movie, Vigalondo talked about an upcoming project he wants to make – a low budget kaiju movie in the same vein as Ishiro Honda did with Gojira back in 1954.
“The script I finished and want to get financing for is a twist on the kaiju eiga genre, the Godzilla genre,” he told FilmDivider. “It’s going to be the cheapest Godzilla movie ever, I promise. It’s going to be a serious Godzilla movie but I’ve got an idea that’s going to make it so cheap that you will feel betrayed. You’re going to be so frustrated by it, it’s not even possible.”

X-Men: Days of Future Past: If you're one of the many fans disappointed that Rogue (Anna Paquin) was cut from the latest X-Men movie, you'll want to save your money for an extended version that'll hit video next year. Apparently the character didn't fit with the finished film as released theatrically, but now it doesn't matter? At least 10 minutes of footage of her involvement in the future section of the movie has been added for the new cut, which won't be available on the DVD/Blu-ray out next month.

Director Nacho Vigalondo is known for making some pretty cool sci-fi films and thrillers such as Timecrimes, Extraterrestrial, and Open Windows. He has reveled that his next project will be an "old school" Kaiju monster movie, which I imagine means it will be in the same vein as the classics that many of us grew up enjoying. He confirmed the news on Twitter saying, "My next movie will be a Old School Kaiju." He goes into a little more detail about it in an interview with Film Divider though saying:
"The script I finished and want to get financing for is a twist on the kaiju eiga genre, the Godzilla genre. It’s going to be the cheapest Godzilla movie ever, I promise. It’s going to be a serious Godzilla movie but I’ve got an idea that’s going to make it so cheap that you will feel betrayed. »

The upcoming third edition of Feratum (October 2-5 in Tlalpujahua, Mexico) is undoubtedly a very promising genre celebration. If the official selection announcement brought few renowned titles, now the second wave is precisely full of those. ABCs of Death 2 and V/H/S: Viral, the two most anticipated horror anthologies of the year, are premiering in Mexico at Feratum. ABCs of Death 2 is composed of 26 short films by such directors as Aharon Keshales and Navot Pupushado, Jen and Sylvia Soska, and Bill Plympton. After its premiere at Fantastic Fest, this sequel has been widely regarded as a much superior film to the 2012 original.

If you haven't seen films from Spanish director Nacho Vigalondo like Timecrimes, Extraterrestrial or Open Windows, then you're missing out on some crafty sci-fi and thrillers showing that he has vision and knows how to work with a small budget. He's also shown off his skills with segments in the horror anthologies The ABCs of Death and V/H/S: Viral, and now it sounds like he's reaching deeper into genre filmmaking as he has revealed his next film is an old school kaiju movie in the same vein as the classics, "The script I finished and want to get financing for is a twist on the kaiju eiga genre, the Godzilla genre." Vigalondo made the revelation to Film Divider weeks ago (via SlashFilm) and elaborated: "It’s going to be the cheapest 'Godzilla' movie ever, I promise.

Presenting his cyber thriller "Open Windows" at Frightfest this week, filmmaker Nacho Vigalondo ("Timecrimes") says he is planning his own take on the 'kaiju' (aka. giant monster) genre which has been revived and dominated by the likes of "Godzilla" and "Pacific Rim" in recent times. Vigalondo tells Film Divider:
"The script I finished and want to get financing for is a twist on the kaiju eiga genre, the Godzilla genre. It's going to be the cheapest Godzilla movie ever, I promise. It's going to be a serious Godzilla movie but I've got an idea that's going to make it so cheap that you will feel betrayed. You're going to be so frustrated by it, it's not even possible.

Cinedigm has released the first clip from their new thriller Open Windows, starring Elijah Wood and Sasha Grey. The scene features Nick (Elijah Wood) unwittingly spying on actress Jill Goddard (Sasha Grey), who is the target of a sinister hacker. Director Nacho Vigalondo uses a unique visual language with webcams and surveillance video to tell a nail-biting story in real time, all from the framework of the laptop of Elijah Wood's character. Take a look at this scene before Open Windows debuts on VOD formats October 2 and in select theaters on November 7.
Oscar-nominated writer-director Nacho Vigalondo (The ABCs of Death, Timecrimes, V/H/S Viral) creates an action-packed world of voyeurism and suspense in his thriller Open Windows. Nick (Elijah Wood, Maniac, The Lord of the Rings) is excited to discover that he's won a dinner date with his favorite actress, Jill Goddard (Sasha Grey, Would You Rather, The Girlfriend Experience »
What started as a clever way of combining the current found footage trend and fun anthology horror has now become an annual series that many genre fans have embraced. V/H/S: Viral, the third entry into the found footage series, delves into more action territory than straight-forward horror. I guess a change of pace isn’t a bad thing. Though some fans might be put off by this. The wrap around features a chase through the streets of La (“Vicious Circles”), the first story includes an aerodynamic fight between magicians over a mysterious cloak (“Dante the Great”), and the final story includes a burly brawl featuring kids using their skateboards to fend off possessed demons (“Bonestorm”). A lot of excitement is created by these three stories but the feeling of dread or fear is nowhere to be found. All of these amount to an anthology that doesn’t aim »

Is it possible to set an entire film on a computer screen? Yes! In the new thriller Open Windows, Elijah Wood plays a blogger obsessed with an actress named Jill Goddard (Sasha Grey) who is persuaded to spy on the star by an unseen but seemingly helpful third party. The twist? Well, there are a few of them in this film from Timecrimes director Nacho Vigalondo. But the most obvious is that the movie does, indeed, all take place on a computer screen.
Open Windows will be released to VOD on Oct. 2 and hits cinemas Nov. 7. (It is also available to preorder on iTunes. »

In an ideal world, this would be a review of a Nacho Vigalondo short film that gets to praise simple sci-fi that gradually expands its surprises. Unfortunately, Vigalondo’s short Parallel Monsters is the meat in the middle of a shit sandwich called V/H/S: Viral. The third installment of the horror franchise is a bumpy ride that abandons its original roots only to fumble the easiest concept imaginable. Instead of heading back into the creaky house with stacks of tube-filled televisions on the floor and pyramids of gonzo VHS tapes, it toys with uploaded cell phone videos as infections. In better hands it could have been the love child of Videodrome and a thousand editorials complaining about kids today with their dang-blasted YouTubes, but the handful of unconnected shorts tip the scale on how many interesting ideas we need to wade through before we get to capable execution.

At this year’s FrightFest the director of Spanish time travelling horror Timecrimes returned with cyber action-thriller Open Windows and comedy-horror Extraterrestrial. If that was not enough, Nacho Vigalondo also returned to the horror anthology following a first tour of duty on the ABC’S of Death, with the Parallel Monsters segment for the ongoing V/H/S found footage series –V/H/S Viral.
For the sake of dramatic escalation we suspect ahead of Nick (Elijah Wood) that not all is above board with the competition he’s won to dine with film star Jill Godard (Sasha Grey), or the reason for its cancellation. Mystery not being the precedence here, it is where this event leads that is of concern, and unfortunately for Nick it leads into his own personalised cyber nightmare where he unwittingly becomes the actress’ stalker.

The third installment features shorts written and directed by Justin Benson, Gregg Bishop, Todd Lincoln, Marcel Sarmiento and Nacho Vigalondo.
