Tribeca Exclusive: Clip From Horror 'Preservation' Takes Cover In A Cabin

8 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The Tribeca Film Festival is in full swing, which means an array of quality dramas will be on display for audiences. But sometimes, you just want to feel you pulse quicken and have a good old fashioned thrill, and that's what Christopher Denham ("Home Movie") is hoping to provide with his sophomore directorial effort, "Preservation." Starring Pablo Schreiber ("Orange is the New Black"), Aaron Staton ("Mad Men"), and Wrenn Schmidt ("Boardwalk Empire"), the story follows brothers Sean and Mike Neary, along with Mike’s wife Wit, who head out on a hunting trip in the woods. But when all of their gear is stolen, they immediately turn on each other deep within this nature preserve, and it's a tale of the hunter and hunted that takes on some new twists. And in this exclusive clip, we see the wounded Mike and Wit take cover in a ranger station, and make an ambitious plan. »

Meet the 2014 Tribeca Filmmakers #8: Christopher Denham Made a Horror But He Can't Stand the Sight of Blood

9 April 2014 7:57 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Not a lot of people can stand the sight of blood, but it's not very common to find a horror filmmaker who passes out at the sight of it. Director Christopher Denham, however, has found a way to get around his discomfort with gore in his terrifying film "Preservation," which takes the scary, secluded woods setting and gives it new meaning. Tell us about yourself. I'm from Chicago. I live in NYC (occasionally La). I'm lucky enough to say my day job is acting. I cut my teeth as a theater actor and playwright in New York. Whatever I know (or claim to know) about directing I learned through acting. Through osmosis. Between takes, I would stick around set and see how Scorsese talks to Bob Richardson. I would see how he talks to actors. How he collaborates. I was basically taking notes, hoping something would rub off somehow.  What »

A Complex Killing Character in Forgetting the Girl: A Movie Review

2 April 2014 11:33 AM, PDT | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

*full disclosure: a DVD screener of this film was provided by Ram Releasing. *possible spoilers ahead. Director: Nate Taylor. Writer: Peter Moore Smith. Cast: Christopher Denham, Lindsay Beamish, Elizabeth Rice and Paul Sparks. Forgetting the Girl is a psychological thriller, set in New York City. The film takes elements from a stage play, with the protagonist revealing himself to a camera and to the audience over time. Often told through a first person narrative, Forgetting the Girl is an intriguing film. The mystery is built by the character Kevin (Christopher Denham), who has a dark past. Well shot and well acted, Forgetting the Girl is a suspenseful thriller and one that should find a wide audience. The story begins and ends with the complex character Kevin. Kevin is a photographer, who shoots models and actresses in the Big Apple. He mixes business with pleasure. And soon, Kevin is taking his clients out on the town. »

Forgetting the Girl | DVD Review

2 April 2014 6:45 AM, PDT | SmellsLikeScreenSpirit | See recent SmellsLikeScreenSpirit news »

It seems as though witnessing the drowning of his sister has forever rendered Kevin (Christopher Denham) a psychological fuck up. In combination with his awkwardness around women, Kevin finds himself obsessed with having to "forget" most of the women he encounters. Since Kevin is a professional photographer who specializes in head shots, he encounters a lot of beautiful women, all of whom he is left having to "forget." A film that is first and foremost about sexual politics, the fact that Kevin refers to all of his clients as "girls" is very telling of his opinion of women. Not only are they just beautiful objects to be photographed, they are somehow considered to be inferior to men. Kevin's immature desire to ask every client out on a date further accentuates his warped mentality; it also explains why he got into photography in the first place. Pure and simple, Kevin just wants to get laid. »

The Definitive Religious Movies: 50-41

24 March 2014 8:41 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

As we are full-on in the Lent season, our definitive list will focus on films about religion or some aspect of it. The #1 qualification to be on this list is to deliberately focus on religion, a religious figure, or have the presence of a religion/faith as an integral plot point. For example, most of Luis Bunuel’s films can be viewed as attacks on the church, but they aren’t literally about Christianity; therefore, they won’t be included. So, on this list, we’ll look at as many different faiths  as possible (though, there are obviously a lot more movies about Christianity than any other religion). We’ll even dabble into cults and sects that don’t really exist. Final rule: no documentaries. We’re keeping this fictional.
