The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – September 1st 2014

3 hours ago | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Believe it or not, films and television programmes added to Netflix and Amazon do have a tendency to expire and no longer be there after a while; this isn’t as publicised as when the titles in question are added though. So by the time you read this there are around 50 titles disappearing from Netflix.

If you have ever wanted to watch the 2002 version of The Count of Monte Cristo then you have probably missed your chance by now. What this does mean however is that probably next week Netflix will have added a whole raft of new stuff, I say new but it will probably be a mixture of catalogue and stuff from the last year. I know that the underrated Enders Game and the superior Hunger Games: Catching Fire is due there in September, I just don’t know when.

Extraterrestrial DVD Review

29 August 2014 2:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Nacho Vigalondo

Starring: Julian Villagran, Michelle Jenner, Carlos Areces, Raul Cimas, Miguel Noguera.

Running Time: 95 minutes

Certificate: 15

The film may boast a title, tagline, and posters which highlight the alien nature of the film, but it should be known that the aliens in question may little to no appearance. This seems like a fair warning, as many have been disappointed by the lack of what they feel has been promised. Luckily, we still have an absolutely charming tale of human interaction in the face of such a huge event.

Timecrimes director Nacho Vigalondo presents us with Extraterrestrial, the story of a one night stand that happens to end the day alien spaceships hover above earth. Making matters more complicated are the fact that the girl in question has a longterm boyfriend, as well as a neighbour obsessed with her. The film focuses specifically on the dynamics between the group »

Open Windows: New Poster Stars Elijah Wood And Sasha Grey

28 August 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Have a look at the new one-sheet for Nacho Vigalondo's thriller Open Windows. His film will be in select theaters on November 7. If you would like to see it earlier, there will be an early VOD release on October 2.Our Managing Editor, Peter Martin, caught the film at SXSW and concluded his rave review with these thoughts..."Somewhat similar to Cary Grant in North by Northwest, forcibly inebriated and careening down a mountain road toward certain death, Open Windows zooms along as though it's out of control, dashing from here to there in a heedless race to the closing credits. But Nacho Vigalondo is not drunk at the helm, and his film only appears to be out of control. Open Windows thrills and chills, and...

FrightFest 2014: V/H/S Viral Review

28 August 2014 3:32 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Justin Benson, Gregg Bishop, Todd Lincoln, Aaron Moorhead, Marcel Sarmiento, Nacho Vigalondo.

Cast: Justin Welborn, Emilia Zoryan.

Certificate: 18.

Running Time: 97 minutes.

Synopsis: Another set of found footage horror segments comes to life in V/H/S Viral. A strange ice-cream van is circling a neighbourhood, a magician has a cloak with demonic powers, two identical men from parallel universes open a gateway, and some skaters take on undead skeletons.

Found footage films and anthology pictures are usually a very mixed bag. The very nature of the anthology means you’re in for a mixed experience as to which individual features you prefer. The V/H/S series, for my money at least, has given us a pair of very strong films. Each one had moments which terrified me and also contained stories that were absolute classics and could have even sustained a full film by themselves. V/H/S »

Frightfest 2014: ‘Open Windows’ Review

28 August 2014 2:09 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Elijah Wood, Neil Maskell, Sasha Grey, Ivan Gonzalez, Nacho Vigalondo | Written by Nacho Vigalondo, Daniel Mas | Directed by Nacho Vigalondo

A hi-tech thriller in the vein of Alfred Hitchcock’s Rear Window, Nacho Vigalondo’s Open Windows is played out via webcams, computer screens and phone cameras. The film sees Elijah Wood star Nick Chambers, webmaster of a site devoted to movie star Jill Goddard (Sasha Grey) who is in Austin to promote her new schlocky sci-fi horror flick. Nick is in town as the winner of an online competition to meet and greet Jill while she is in Austin. Unfortunately his prize is a hoax; it’s all an elaborate scam set up by mysterious superfan Chord for him to play a part in an audacious plan to kidnap the actress.

Following his appearance in Peter Jackson’s Middle Earth movies it seems actor Elijah Wood has been »

Film4 FrightFest 2014 Review – V/H/S: Viral (2014)

26 August 2014 4:32 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

V/H/S: Viral, 2014

Directed by Justin Benson, Gregg Bishop, Todd Lincoln, Aaron Moorhead, Marcel Sarmiento, Nacho Vigalondo

Synopsis:

Follows fame-obsessed teens who unwittingly become stars of the next internet sensation.

About 10 minutes into V/H/S: Viral, you’re suddenly struck by two thoughts. Not only is this the third entry into a series that has yet to produce a movie that isn’t abhorrent, but more worryingly it’s a series that people are willing to pay to watch. What is it about this horrible franchise that people gravitate too? However a more interesting question would be to ask what those people made of V/H/S: Viral as its a complete departure from the previous two movies to the point where it could be from a totally new series. It’s still rubbish, but it is different for the better. Sometimes.

Frightfest 2014: ‘Extraterrestrial’ Review

25 August 2014 7:31 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Julián Villagrán, Michelle Jenner, Carlos Areces, Raúl Cimas, Miguel Noguera | Written and Directed by Nacho Vigalondo

Nacho Vigalondo made quite the splash with 2007’s Timecrimes, a dark and rather uncompromising time-travel thriller which impressed many. To British eyes it would seem like all had gone quiet on the Nacho front but this was not the case. His next film Extraterrestial was playing Italy when my wife and I were on honeymoon, but we celebrated our third anniversary last week. A delayed release is something we see fairly often but in the case of Extraterrestial it is bizarre as this is a charming but admittedly small-scale film though one which would work with a wider audience than a pure genre one as is the case with the FrightFest audience.

Much of this is down to the simple fact that the film barely dabbles in the sci-fi nature of its opening. »

FrightFest 2014: 'Extraterrestrial' review

25 August 2014 3:02 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★☆☆☆Four years after making a respectable impact with his debut Timecrimes (2007), Nacho Vigalondo returns with Extraterrestrial (2011), a low-budget Spanish science fiction drama that's unlikely to have the same impact. The film centres on Julio (Julián Villagrán) and Julia (Michelle Jenner), two people who wake up together with no memory of the night before. Before they have chance to figure out what has happened, they come to the realisation that there's an alien spacecraft hovering outside their window. Confined to Julia's apartment, the pair must not only deal with the looming outside threat, but also the arrival of Julia's ex-boyfriend, Tipo (Miguel Noguera), and her neighbour, Ángel (Carlos Areces).

Film4 FrightFest 2014 – Open Windows (2014)

24 August 2014 3:23 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Open Windows, 2014

Directed by Nacho Vigalondo

Starring Sasha Grey, Elijah Wood, Neil Maskell

Synopsis:

An actress named Jill refuses to have dinner with Nick, a fan who won a date with her in an Internet contest. In return, a guy named Chord, posing as Jill’s campaign manager, helps Nick to follow in the footsteps of the actress from his own computer.

Sometimes you just have to take a step back from the movie you’re watching to admire what’s in front of you. You just have to drink in the thought, the planning and the genius that goes into a movie like Open Windows. In terms of telling a story with great acting, it doesn’t always work. But as a master class in creative filmmaking, there is nothing quite like Open Windows.

It feels weird to sit at a laptop and write about Open Windows when the »
