Darkbound (2013)

Written by: Michaelbrent Collings

In Darkbound, a new horror novel by Michaelbrent Collings, six strangers board a New York subway, each bound for a different destination. It is early in the day and, since none of the others are open, the six people end up on the same car. They are all different: an old latina grandmother, a plain white guy, a gangbanger, a lawyer-looking woman, and an army-type guy. Little do they realize that they have just boarded a different kind of train, one that doesn't travel to any location on the subway line. The passengers are soon fighting to survive while also trying to figure out how to escape the train.

Darkbound is a typical survival story with some supernatural elements. The reader is introduced to a group of characters who are thrown into a perilous situation. Right off the bat, it's apparent that something isn't quite right.

Barricade Yourself Away from This Film: A Movie Review

*spoilers are below! Director: Andrew Currie. Writers: Michaelbrent Collings. Cast: Jody Thompson, Conner Dwelly, Ryan Grantham, and Eric McCormack. Tagline: "Lock your doors." Something, somewhere went wrong with the film Barricade. A lighting guy was fired or writer Michaelbrent Collings' script was not given a thorough read by someone. Because, this title seems to flip-flop about what its central conflict actually is. Also, this movie is overly dark. Whole sets and characters are hidden in shadows and hopefully, this technique was not intentional. Overall, Barricade is a lackluster showing with Eric McCormack's performance one of the few redeemable qualities in the film. The story involves a silly plot device, a fever. The film will try to make it seem like there is an external threat. But, the shady images and strange cuts are being caused by a high temperature. The big plot twist in Barricade is revealed! Turn the lights on already!

WWE, or World Wrestling Entertainment, isn’t just about wrestling anymore, as evidenced by their frequent forays into film producing over the last few years.

This week, their newest film, Barricade, comes out direct to DVD, with an impressive, cool-sounding, and eye-catching cover using technology called the Augmented Reality experience, meant to bring the intensity of the film to life.

Eric McCormack, of Will and Grace and the current TNT drama Perception, stars in Barricade as Terrance Shade, who’s trying to balance his professional life as a psychiatrist and personal life as a widowed father. He and his kids decide to spend the holidays in a mountain cabin, to both get
