25 October 2012 1:02 AM, PDT | Monsters and Critics | See recent Monsters and Critics news »

Simon Cowell has hired a personal trainer. The music mogul is working with a fitness guru to get him sweating in the gym and help him cut down on smoking, drinking and eating sweet treats. Simon has been working out at his own gym at his Los Angeles home while he films 'The X Factor' USA and so far things seem to be working out. He posted on his twitter account: 'I now have a trainer three times a week. Feel so much better ... That's a fitness trainer.' The 53-year-old star recently started dating model Louise Griffiths - who is 19 years his junior - and it has been claimed he has started the new exercise regime to »

DVD Review: The Revenant (R1, Lionsgate)

17 September 2012 1:01 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

The Revenant

Stars: David Anders, Chris Wylde, Louise Griffiths, Jacy King | Written and Directed by Kerry Prior

Revenant – One who returns from the dead in corporeal form.

Dying sucks. I mean, think about it. You cease to exist, and all the beautiful things in life can never be seen again. You become worm food, a permanent resident taking up real estate six feet under. But what if, and those are some powerful words, what if you didn’t have to stay dead? What if you could come back and be immortal, for lack of a better word? It’s not something to be taken lightly and in the wrong hands, it can go bad for everyone involved. How would you use that power? And therein lies the central idea of The Revenant.

We follow the story of Bart Gregory, a soldier “killed to death in a gunfight,” while on patrol in Iraq. »

Movie Reviews: “The Revenant”

24 August 2012 5:32 PM, PDT | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

The Revenant

Starring: David Anders, Chris Wylde, Louise Griffiths, Jacy King Written, Directed and Produced by Kerry Prior

The Revenant has been kicking around for awhile (IMDb lists it at a 2009 film), running the festival circuit and refusing to die like its main character. That journey ends today, as it finally earns a limited release in a few select cities, as well as being made available on video on demand. If you want to know whether you should spend the money to see it, should you have the chance, the answer is an unequivocal yes.

In this new age where we’re flooded by zombies, vampires and werewolves (oh my!) in every pop culture outlet possible, it takes a unique and cunning vision to make one of so many stand out. And Kerry Prior, a special FX wizard on such varied films from The Lost Boys to Air Force One to The Blob and Phantasm, »

Review: The Revenant

24 August 2012 7:30 AM, PDT | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

After a three-year wait, festival favorite The Revenant finally hits theaters today in a limited release that includes Austin. Director D. Kerry Prior won the Best Director Award at Fantastic Fest in 2009 (my podcast interview). At the time Prior mentioned he still had the challenge of securing distribution for his feature as well as finalizing visual effects. After a successful festival run, Prior re-cut portions of The Revenant to tighten up this dark comedy. The final cut enhances the darkness of this genre-defying film while ensuring its placement in the hall of "must-see" movies of the undead nature.

The Revenant centers around Bart Gregory (David Anders), a soldier who is killed in Iraq during a nighttime ambush. Bart is laid to rest as his best friend Joey (Chris Wylde) and girlfriend Janet (Louise Griffiths) mourn his death ... only it turns out that Bart isn't done with living. He reunites with Joey, »

Feasting on Friends with The Revenant: A Movie Review

16 August 2012 10:17 AM, PDT | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

Director/writer: D. Kerry Prior. Cast: David Anders, Louise Griffiths, Jacy King, and Chris Wylde. Tagline: "The only thing worse than having your best friend die is having him come back." While watching D. Kerry Prior's The Revenant, this reviewer is reminded of another zombie buddy movie titled Deadheads. In both films, two friends have to deal with becoming undead. Deadheads is more of a road trip comedy, while The Revenant is a darker thriller. Both films tell tales of a friend trying to help another with elements of romance on the periphery. As more background, The Revenant was completed in 2009 and despite winning several awards, this title has experienced some delays in reaching the public. Lionsgate has picked up this title for an September release and fans of zombie thrillers and comedies will want to shamble out to their local Redbox to feed on this title at home. »

The Revenant Review

15 August 2012 12:42 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Alright, I have to ask – Why do so many fantastic films get caught in studio limbo while utter garbage is seemingly churned out on a daily basis? Why did it take three long years of anticipation before I could get my hands on a copy of  Kerry Prior’s The Revenant? In 2009 alone, Prior demolished the New York City Horror Film Festival by winning Best Director, having both David Anders and Chris Wylde tie for Best Actor, scoring the Audience Choice Award, and finished by capturing Best Feature honors. Yet a film like Area 407 got a full featured release first?!

Well, after a three-year wait I was finally given a chance to see what all the hoopla was about, and boy can I say the wait was worth it. Horror fans everywhere, heed my recommendation and add Prior’s film to your must see list immediately, you’ll thank yourself afterward. »

The Revenant

Stars: David Anders, Chris Wylde, Louise Griffiths, Jacy King | Written and Directed by Kerry Prior

Bart (Anders), a soldier serving in Iraq, wakes up the morning after his own funeral, to find he’s not only still alive but has been resurrected as a revenant, or one who has returned from the dead… Unable to ignore his new-found thirst for blood, Bart knows that there is one person in his life whom he can rely on for help: his slacker best friend Joey (Wylde). Although Joey seems to have painlessly moved on in life, friends are friends and Bart is enthusiastically welcomed back, even as a zombie that needs to drink blood to stop the decomposition of his body. The best friend duo quickly realise Bart’s zombie-fied state is a perfect opportunity for them to become vigilante crime fighters, and they soon begin killing the city’s »
