‘Fugitives’ DVD Review

Stars: Dominic Purcell, Luke Mably, Marie Avgeropoulos, Claudia Church, Chelsea Edmundson, Stephen Lang, Tricia Helfer | Written by Shane Dax Taylor, Chad Law | Directed by Shane Dax Taylor

A genre-standard bickering couple take their woes to a small island in the Bahamas, where they hope to patch things up and get back on the right track. That track puts them on the same path as two other couples; the charismatic William and Mary (Stephen Lang and Claudia Church) and the horny Max and Nina (Dominic Purcell and Marie Avgeropoulos). While out wining and dining with the former, their beach house is ransacked and robbed. But whodunit? And will they stop at robbery?

With a story which slow-burns like an incense candle, ambling along at a languid pace, Fugitives (aka Isolation) is not the action-heavy gunfight-palooza its cast and synopsis might suggest. Even the normally terrifying Stephen Lang is in laid-back mode here,

Black Water Sees Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren Joining Forces on a Sub

2017 has barely kicked off and already action fans are being assured 2018 won’t pull any punches. Or at least, that’s what we’re hoping to get once Black Water is released: a high-octane, kick-ass thriller centered around the latest on screen pairing of Dolph Lundgren and the Muscles from Brussels. Last seen together in The Expendables 2 and the rather stylishly choreographed Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning (both in 2012), the newest collaboration between Lundgren and Van Damme, scripted by Chad Law, starts shooting later this month. In Black Water: A CIA operative (Jean-Claude Van Damme) is imprisoned in a secret black site on board a nuclear submarine.

Action Thriller Black Water Begins To Take Shape With Jean-Claude Van Damme And Dolph Lundgren

Even if they don’t hold the same clout as, say, Stallone and Schwarzenegger, Van Damme and Lundgren are two names that are often revered in Hollywood’s action scene, and over the years fans have lapped up their on-screen battles in the likes of Universal Soldier and its widely derided sequel, Universal Soldier: Regeneration.

But it appears Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren are ready to let bygones by bygones, for The Hollywood Reporter brings word that the duo has been cast in Black Water, a new action-thriller in which they’ll play on-screen allies for the very first time. No director is attached just yet, but THR reveals that the script by Chad Law revolves around a “deep cover operative (Van Damme) who awakens to find himself imprisoned in a CIA black site on a submarine.” Little is known about Lundgren’s involvement, but we assume his character

Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren will be on the same side for the first time in their action filled careers, with the two almost-iconic action stars will co-star in the upcoming action thriller Black Water.

Daylight’s End (2016) Film Review

Reviewed by Jesse Miller,

MoreHorror.com

Synopsis: Years after a mysterious plague has devastated the planet and turned most of humanity into blood-hungry creatures, a rogue drifter on a vengeful hunt stumbles across a band of survivors in an abandoned police station and reluctantly agrees to try to help them defend themselves and escape to the sanctuary they so desperately need.

There’s been a lot of zombie apocalypse material in the horror genre these days that it might be easy to pass over a title just because you’ve seen it all been done before.

Should you come across Daylight’S End, however, be sure to give this adventure a look, as it’s a well-polished action horror that strives to do something out of the ordinary.

Directed by William Kaufman and written by Chad Law, Daylight’s End is a slick, energetic piece that knows which notes it

Leading today’s Horror Highlights is four clips from IFC Midnight’s Antibirth. Following Danny Perez’s trippy debut, is a new trailer for Daylight’s End, Kickstarter information on Steve Johnson’s Rubberhead Sex, Drugs, and Special FX, and release details for a Slime City double feature Blu-ray.

Watch Four Clips from Antibirth: “Hard-drinking, pill-popping, bong-ripping Lou (Natasha Lyonne) and her best friend Sadie (Chloë Sevigny) spend their days adrift in a druggy haze. But one wild night out becomes a bad trip that never ends when Lou wakes up with symptoms of an unexplained, highly abnormal pregnancy. Who—or what—is growing inside her? As her due date approaches with alarming swiftness, the fear, paranoia, and conspiracy theories begin to pile up. Spiked with blasts of hallucinatory color, surreal shocks, and subversive comedy, the audacious feature debut from Danny Perez is a no-holds-barred descent into delirium.”

The Rise of Action in Daylight's End: A Film Review

*full disclosure: an online screener of this film was provided by director William Kaufman. Director: William Kaufman. Writer: Chad Law. Cast: Johnny Strong, Lance Henriksen, Louis Mandylor and Chelsea Edmundson. Daylight's End is another collaboration between director William Kaufman (Sinners and Saints) and actor Johnny Strong. This time, events take place in a future world, where a devastating pandemic has turned the world into a haven for murderous cannibals. The film blends a number of genres, with action elements forefront. Meanwhile, Strong's score helps amplify the violent events onscreen. However, the film, admittedly, borrows from several films in the genre. Daylight's End is an exciting feature, in which the focus is on action and less on dramatic characterizations. The story begins with the character Rourke (Strong). Three years after a virus has decimated the world, Rourke is searching for revenge. He seeks the Alpha, a vampiric strongman. His hunt leads him into.
