Tribeca 2014: Reflect on This New Poster for The Canal

31 March 2014 1:52 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

An official one-sheet has arrived for Irish director Ivan Kavanagh's new film, The Canal, which premieres next month at Tribeca. Check it out right here along with all of the previously released goodies.

This year's Tribeca Film Festival takes place from April 16th to April 27th in New York City.

Antonia Campbell-Hughes, Rupert Evans, Steve Oram, and Hannah Hoekstra star.

Synopsis

Film archivist David and his wife are perfectly happy—or so he believes. When a looming secret shatters their marriage at the same time as a turn-of-the-century film reel he is studying reveals their house to be the site of a 1902 multiple-murder, David begins to unravel, and the house’s eerie history threatens to repeat itself. Dripping with tension and chilling to the core, this visceral Irish ghost story is a visually arresting and genuinely shocking journey into the darkness within.

Under the Skin review: Scarlett Johansson haunts in mesmerising sci-fi

11 March 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Jonathan Glazer; Screenwriter Walter Campbell, Jonathan Glazer; Starring: Scarlett Johansson, Antonia Campbell-Hughes, Paul Brannigan, Jessica Mance Running time: 108 mins; Certificate: 15

When people look back on 2014 as the year in which Scarlett Johansson became an interesting actress again, it will be because of a pair of radically different roles that nonetheless play like two halves of a whole. In both Spike Jonze's Her and Jonathan Glazer's haunting, singular sci-fi Under the Skin, Johansson plays a non-human entity who develops empathy and self-awareness and, for want of a better word, a soul.

Based loosely on Michel Faber's blackly comic novel, Under the Skin follows a predatory alien who inhabits the body of a young woman (Johansson) and uses her charms to prey on unsuspecting male hitchhikers along the motorways of Glasgow.

Faber's novel had the men drugged, mutilated and processed into meat in a sly metaphor for factory farming. »

New Official One-Sheet for Jonathan Glazers Under the Skin

11 February 2014 | Horror Asylum | See recent Horror Asylum news »

The new official one-sheet for the Jonathan Glazer helmed sci-fi thriller 'Under the Skin' has landed. The poster features the welcoming face of lead Scarlett Johansson ('The Avengers') amongst the stars. It's simplistic style resonates a rather 80's sci-fi feel and what with Glazer behind the camera we're sure to be in for a visual feast when it hits theatres in the UK next month. Johansson stars as a 'Species'-like alien who preys on humans using her 'voracious sexuality'. 'Under the Skin' also stars Antonia Campbell-Hughes ('Storage 24') and Paul Brannigan.

DVD Review: 'Kelly + Victor'

13 January 2014 6:04 AM, PST | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★☆ Love hurts in more ways than one in Kieran Evans' Kelly + Victor (2012), an impressive low-budget UK indie which, despite a couple of narrative missteps, still manages to be an absorbing and passionate look at sexuality and the need for connection - however extreme. Victor (Julian Morris) meets Kelly (Antonia Campbell-Hughes) in a loved-up haze whilst out clubbing and both are immediately smitten with each other. During their first sexual encounter it's clear there's a darkness which sits beneath Kelly's meek exterior, as she seems to revel in the masochistic approach of asphyxiating Victor to climax.
