Film Review: ‘Cam2Cam’

Film Review: ‘Cam2Cam’
Those dang Internets are gonna getcha in “Cam2Cam,” a sloppy chiller about tourists falling prey to an online stalker in Bangkok that clumsily mixes slasher, sexploitation and supernatural elements. Given director/scenarist Joel Soisson’s track record of mostly direct-to-video schlock genre sequels, often as a producer, it’s perhaps surprising that his latest is braving a limited theatrical release Aug. 22, simultaneous with its VOD launch. Needless to say, this rather sleazy time-killer will make most of its coin via home formats in most territories.

The first act is basically a straight-up remake of French helmer Davy Sihali’s half-hour 2008 short, which won fans at horror fests worldwide. (Apart from sharing original story credit, Sihali is oddly credited at the end as “guest director,” suggesting creative differences might have arisen at some point during production.)

Cam2Cam Review

Over the last two or so years there’s been a noticeable boom in what I’m coining the “techno-horror” genre (technology based horror), which isn’t very surprising considering how we’ve all become sheeple with iPhones glued to our hands – but that movie would essentially be nothing but a new-age zombie flick.

A movie like Cam2Cam takes a bit of commonplace internet entertainment, like video chatting, and introduces a sadistic twist that confirms creeping paranoias already planted in our brains. Nothing is safe online, nor sacred, as hackers can get just about any information they’d need simply by sending a virus via email or download. Age, hair color, mother’s maiden name, college Gpa; it’s all accessible to the right people – including your current location. Movies like The Den have already proved that the internet is a vastly more horrifying beast than we could ever imagine,

Indie Spotlight

We’re back with another edition of the Indie Spotlight, highlighting recent independent horror news sent our way. Today’s feature includes a trailer and release details for Sledge, Cam2Cam, and Night Guards, a review of Hungerford, plus more below:

Sledge Trailer and Release Date Announced: “He didn’t drown. He didn’t burn. He’s just a psychopath with a sledgehammer.

Sledge, a ‘bloody’ good horror-comedy in the tradition of Tucker and Dale vs. Evil and Shaun of the Dead, premieres on VOD September 2nd and DVD on October 7th.

A spoof of the horror genre, and littered with nods and references to fright flicks of yesteryear, the film fixes on a psychopath who not only believes he’s in a movie and video game but that he’s the hero of this story.

Sledge is a horror comedy that takes a loving poke to the horror classics we

Blu-ray Review: ‘The ABCs of Death’ Mistakes Endurance Test for Entertainment

Chicago – “The ABCs of Death” may easily rank as the most repugnant two hours I’ve ever had the displeasure of being condemned to review. But don’t let that entice you, gorehounds. It’s also uninspired and thoroughly monotonous. The only thing that scared me was my realization after the first short film had ended that I still had 25 films left to go. This isn’t entertainment. It’s an endurance test.

Consider the vignette about an obese woman who decides, in a fit of depression, to slice off her fat. Her self-mutilation is juxtaposed with footage of a skinny model striking poses in a commercial. The director, Xavier Gens, cuts back and forth between the imagery with such mechanical repetition that the viewer develops a mixture of nauseation and whiplash but not, alas, fear. What a sad encapsulation of modern horror’s exceedingly sorry state. Horror used to be about atmosphere,

ABC's of Death 2 Moves Forward with International Lineup of Directors

Producers Ant Timpson, Tim League, and the Wagner/Cuban Company's Magnet Releasing announced today the production of ABCs of Death 2, a high energy sequel to the 2012 anthology hit that delivers 26 new dark tales from the industry's most celebrated genre directors. Taking all that was great from the first installment, ABCs of Death 2 aims to be a wilder, leaner, faster paced and even more entertaining anthology this time around, with a new crop of award-winning, visionary filmmakers from around the globe.

In a significant departure from the first installment, ABCs of Death 2 is expanding beyond horror directors. The sequel's new roster includes Goya Award winner &#193lex de la Iglesia (The Last Circus, Oxford Murders); Room 237 mastermind Rodney Ascher; Academy Award-nominated animator Bill Plympton; Filipino icon - and Director's Fortnight inductee - Erik Matti (Exodus: Tales from the Enchanted Kingdom); and the founder of Nigerian "Nollywood" cinema Lancelot Oduwa Imasuen.
