2012 B-movie, Underground and Trash Film Festival: Official Lineup

4 September 2012 6:00 AM, PDT | Underground Film Journal | See recent Underground Film Journal news »

The theme for this year’s B-Movie, Underground and Trash Film Festival, held in the city of Breda in the Netherlands, is “Apocalypse.” So get ready to watch the world end dozens of different ways on Sept. 5-9 at various venues around the city.

The fun kicks off on the 5th with the German movie Hell by director Tim Fehlbaum. If you didn’t know, “hell” means “bright” in German and, given that title, this flick is set appropriately in a post-apocalyptic future where global warming has decimated the planet and surviving tribes battle for water and food.

Other post-apocalyptic visions include Milan Konjevic’s Zone of the Dead starring legendary zombie killer Ken Foree; Davi de Oliveira Pinheiro’s Bazillian underground hit Beyond the Grave about a world where magic and madness rule the world; and Rob van Eyck’s bizarrely twisted Afterman and Afterman 2.

New Trailer, Clip, and Images from Tim Fehlbaum’s Post-Apocalyptic Flick Hell

5 July 2012 6:52 AM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

In the mood for a little post-apocalypse this post-July 4th? If so, then you’re in luck. Here is a new trailer, a fresh clip, a trendy infographic, and DVD cover art from the Roland Emmerich-produced “Hell”. Who knows post-apocalypse, or at least how to get us there, better than Roland Emmerich? Exactly. Even though Emmerich’s much more famous name is being used to sell this thing Stateside, the film itself is directed by one Tim Fehlbaum, who from the looks of it, has quite a nice career ahead of him. From producer, Roland Emmerich (2012, The Day After Tomorrow) comes Hell, the story of a post-apocalyptic future where the sun has scorched the Earth and left it too bright to inhabit. It was once the source of life, light and warmth but now the sun has turned the entire world into a baked and barren wasteland. Forests are scorched. »

Josh Wilding Reviews: Hell

2 July 2012 10:30 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Hell's executive producer Roland Emmerich may be behind such big budget post apocalyptic blockbusters as 2012 and The Day After Tomorrow, but this film tells a far more personal story and doesn't require millions of dollars of visual effects to do so. Instead, director and writer Tim Fehlbaum (he shares a screenplay credit with Oliver Kahl and Thomas Wöb) grounds the story firmly in reality, focusing only on two sisters, the dubious man they travel with and another male straggler they pick up along the way. The specifics of how and why the temperature of the world has risen and left it a barren wasteland are irrelevant and there's no tedious subplot here about scientists trying to figure out how to miraculously stop the disaster (although a newspaper which mentions solar flares may tell us all we really need to know). As the group head towards the mountains in search »

Roland Emmerich unleashes Hell on DVD and Blu-ray

2 July 2012 3:51 AM, PDT | The Geek Files | See recent The Geek Files news »

After the alien invasion of Independence Day, a new Ice Age in The Day After Tomorrow and a deluge caused by the collapse of the Earth's crust in 2012, director Roland Emmerich said he was done with disaster films.

Well, not quite. No one does an apocalypse quite like Emmerich and the German filmmaker is an executive producer on new film Hell, which is released on DVD and Blu-ray in the UK today (July 2, 2012).

Directed by Tim Fehlbaum, the German sci-fi production is billed as a "searing sci-fi thriller about the terrifying lengths humans will go to survive."

It enjoyed a 2011 theatrical release in Germany, Russia, Poland and Japan, as well as being screened at several European festivals.

Hell is the story of a post-apocalyptic future where the sun has scorched the Earth and left it too bright to inhabit.

Hell

Stars: Hannah Herzsprung, Stipe Erceg, Lars Eidinger, Lisa Vicari, Angela Winkler | Written and Directed by Tim Fehlbaum

Produced by Roland Emmerich (2012, The Day After Tomorrow) Hell is the story of a post-apocalyptic future where the sun has scorched the Earth and left it too bright to inhabit, turning the entire world into a baked and barren wasteland. Forests are scorched. Animal carcasses line the roads. Even the nights are dazzlingly bright. Marie, her little sister Leonie and Phillip are heading for the mountains. Rumour has it that water can still be found there but it is a hazardous trip into the unknown. Despite their struggle to overcome the odds, the threesome are lured into an ambush by a twisted “family” of survivalists and then the real battle begins…

It seems that given the Mayan prophecy of the end of the world in 2012 a lot of genre filmmakers have had »

Daily Briefing. Rivette, Shirley Clarke, German Film Awards

28 April 2012 11:52 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

The New York Times runs two must-reads this weekend. With Jacques Rivette's Céline and Julie Go Boating (1974) opening at Film Forum on Friday, Dennis Lim writes, "It's not just that the film holds up to repeat viewings; its very point is its seemingly infinite repeatability, its mysterious capacity to surprise both first-time viewers and those who know it as well as a magician reciting an incantation." He goes on to consider Céline within the context of Rivette's oeuvre and its lasting impact on filmmakers as diverse as Susan Seidelman and David Lynch.

"Shirley Clarke is one of the great undertold stories of American independent cinema," writes Manohla Dargis at the top of piece on Milestone Films' multi-year project to restore and revive interest in Clarke's work. The Connection (1962) opens Friday at the IFC Center and soon to follow will be theatrical and DVD releases of Robert Frost: A »

Poster for 'Hell'

25 April 2012 11:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Many directors are beginning to get as much credit for films they produce rather than direct as evidenced by Joss Whedon's recent credit for The Cabin in the Woods (though, Whedon did co-write it) or Todd Phillips on Project X. Now Roland Emmerich is getting in the game as I just received an email with the subject line "Roland Emmerich's Hell Artwork & Release Info." I though to myself, Roland Emmerich made a movie called Hell? The answer is "No", but that's not what they want you to think as Emmerich produced the upcoming film which is directed by Tim Fehlbaum and will hit video on demand on August 9 and DVD on August 21. Starring Hannah Herzsprung, Lars Eidinger, Stipe Erceg, Lisa Vicari and Angela Winkler in a story that centers on the idea that the sun has scorched the Earth and left it a barren wasteland. Here's the synopsis »
