This Foreclosure is Looking for Buyers on February 3rd, 2015

The horror title Foreclosure was picked up by Virgil Films in 2013. Since then, the film has secured a 2015 release, on multiple formats.

For more on the story, Bill (Imperioli) moves into Queens, New York. He is taking over a family member's home. But, this neighbourhood is not ideal. Most of the local residents have lost their homes to foreclosures, or they have simply walked away from their property. But why? Ghosts haunt Bill's new manor and he must uncover the dead's secrets. Or, he will be tormented forever. Foreclosure will also be released on DVD. The DVD release date is set for February 10th.

The Sopranos’ Michael Imperioli Leads Based On True Events Haunted Neighborhood Film Foreclosure; Hitting VOD/DVD This February

If there is a show that still scares the living hell out of me, even as an adult, that show is Unsolved Mysteries. It just gets under my skin every single time I watch it. One episode of that show in particular, is the one titled, “Black Hope“, an episode that revolved around a series of houses that were seemingly haunted by the ghosts of people buried under the land many years ago, with the new housing developments build on top of the land. It’s a scary as all hell episode, and though I get creeped out every time I think about it, I’ve always thought it would make for a great film.

Fast forward to today, when the folks at Virgil films sent us the press release for their upcoming DVD release of Richard LedesForeclosure, a film that sound eerily close to that Unsolved Mysteries episode,

'Mockingbird' Trailer from the Director of 'The Strangers'
The Strangers director Bryan Bertino returns with the thriller Mockingbird. Universal Pictures and Jason Blum's Blumhouse Productions have just released the first trailer for this unique take on the found footage genre.

The story follows three individuals who each receive an anonymous, unmarked video camera and a horrific ultimatum to continue filming...Or die. Experience the terror through the eyes of these unsuspecting victims, with a chain of found-footage events so real and absolutely dreadful, you'll have to watch it again to believe it.

Audrey Marie Anderson, Todd Stashwick, Alexandra Lydon and Barak Hardley star as these terrified victims who are forced to play a deadly game in this harrowing nightmare, which brings terror home to a normally peaceful suburban neighborhood.

As we can see from the trailer, a vindictive clown appears to be a part of this terrifying tale. What did these normal suburbanites do to deserve such a horrifying fate?

Sbiff Review: Tragicomic 'Night Has Settled' Confronts Icky Adolescence Head-On

Oliver is the baby of the family. But you wouldn't know it from the way the thirteen-year-old boy smokes, drinks and wisecracks his way through Steve Clark's visually assured sophomore feature "Night Has Settled," which world-premiered this weekend at the Santa Barbara Film Festival.Set in 1983 New York, the indie drama sits somewhere between the films of Larry Clark and the novels of Jonathan Safran Foer on the scale of adolescent coming-of-age ickiness. It's uncomfortable yet tender, droll yet tragic, and often at the same time. In a cramped flat, Oliver (Spencer List) lives with his single mom Luna (Pilar Lopez de Ayala), his older sister (Courtney Baxter) and live-in nanny Aida (Adriana Barraza, Oscar-nominated for playing another nanny in "Babel"). Oliver rolls with a rough crowd of smoking, drinking, oversexed kids well into their teens. His Bohemian artist mother isn't around much and when she is, they share

Famke Janssen Talks Bringing Up Bobby’s DVD Release

Bringing up Bobby gets its DVD release in the UK this week, and it marks the directorial debut of Dutch actress Famke Janssen. The film tells the story of Olive (Milla Jovovich), a Ukranian con artist who moves to Oklahoma with her 10 year old son Bobby (Spencer List) in a bid to escape her murky past.

What Culture caught up with the former James Bond villain – who also wrote and produced the film – to discuss the excitement of helming her first feature, and much more.

It took almost five years to get Bringing up Bobby off the ground, but Janssen ensured that the time was well spent. She explains;

“During that time I really got to think through the script and how I wanted to shoot it, what I wanted to do in terms of casting, location…It gave me a head start in a way that I wouldn’t

DVD Review - Bringing Up Bobby (2011)

Bringing Up Bobby, 2011.

Written and Directed by Famke Janssen.

Starring Milla Jovovich, Bill Pullman, Rory Cochrane, Marcia Cross and Spencer List.

Synopsis:

Despite con artist Olive’s (Milla Jovovich) aspirations for a better future for her son, her arrest sees Good Samaritans Kent (Bill Pullman) and Mary (Marcia Cross) take over his guardianship.

Debut films will inevitably be hindered by flaws; they are unlikely to be perfect. That said two recent directorial feature debuts, Makinov’s Come Out and Play and Ian Clark’s Brit horror The Facility, were full of promise. Look back far enough and the Soska Sisters' Dead Hooker in a Trunk and Robert Rodriguez’s El Mariachi were two debut films that were were rough around the edges yet equally showcased a raw creative talent that could mature with time and experience. There was a sense of inspired energy about these films, infused with an inspired vision.

DVD Review: 'Bringing Up Bobby'

  • CineVue
★★★☆☆ Feature films from directors who attempt the crossover from acting can often be terribly hit and miss. It doesn't always follow that because you know how it works in front of the camera, you can automatically transfer the skills to the other side. As a result, Bringing Up Bobby (2011) - the directorial debut of Dutch actress Famke Janssen starring Milla Jovovich - is a refreshing surprise, and far more accomplished than you might expect. Olive (Jovovich) is a small time con-artist from Eastern Europe. In an effort to start anew she has come to America to find a better life for her and her young son Bobby (newcomer Spencer List).

Unfortunately, it's difficult for a leopard to change its spots and Olive's shady past eventually catches up with her, with devastating consequences for her and Bobby. There are several surprising elements to Bringing Up Bobby - such as its competent

DVD Review - Bereavement (2010)

Bereavement, 2010.

Written and Directed by Steven Mena.

Starring Alexandra Daddario, Spencer List, Brett Rickaby, Michael Biehn, Nolan Gerard Funk, Kathryn Meisle, Peyton List, John Savage and Valentina de Angelis.

Synopsis:

A deranged psychopath kidnaps a young boy with a genetic disorder that causes him to feel no physical pain and forces him to become an unwilling participant in the mindless slaughter of his innocent victims.

Small towns tormented by serial killers is a reliable staple of the horror genre. Be it isolated rural town locales or sleepy suburbia, the Michael Myers et al of this world go about their slashing business in the quiet recesses of America. Bereavement follows a stereotypical format with a few interesting ideas added.

A young boy, Martin, has a rare genetic disorder that causes him to feel no physical pain. He’s kidnapped by psychologically disturbed killer Graham Sutter, who forces him to bare witness to his killings.

DVD Review: Bereavement

Bereavement

Stars: Alexandra Daddario, Spencer List, Brett Rickaby, Michael Biehn, Kathryn Meisle, John Savage, Chase Pechacek | Written and Directed by Stevan Mena

What makes somebody evil? Is it just in their nature to be that person, to have the ability to harm others without remorse or is it their environment that builds the monster inside. This is the well-known argument of nature vs. nurture and Bereavement is a film that pushes for the belief that its nurture that creates the monster, that the parent is to blame.

Bereavement is actually the prequel to a movie called Malevolence, looking at the tale of Martin Bristol. In Bereavement we see him as a six year old boy with a rare disease; he lacks the ability to feel pain. When he is kidnapped by a serial killer he is taught that torturing and killing is ok because pain is not felt, which of course he understands.

Q&A: Famke Janssen On the Labors of 'Bringing Up Bobby'

  • NextMovie
Famke Janssen has played a lot of parts — sexy superhero, love-struck journalist, evil witch — but she's about to add a new line to her resume: Writer/ Director. That's right, the brunette stunner has moved to the other side of the camera for her new film, "Bringing Up Bobby," a project that took her quite some to cobble together ... which just goes to show how hard it really is to get a movie made.

The comedy follows Olive (Milla Jovovich), a con artist who moves her son to a conservative neighborhood in Oklahoma in an effort to build a better future. We won't spoil it for you, but suffice to say that things don't exactly go as planned for our ambitious heroine or her offspring. Janssen chatted with us about what inspired her to want to tell this story, how it was directing for the first time and what man she

Interview: Bringing Up Bobby Writer-Director-Producer Famke Janssen
It isn’t easy to write, direct and produce your first feature, even if you’ve got dozens of acting credits to your name like Famke Janssen.
