Interview: Dan Allen
3 hours ago
With Unhinged due to be released on 25th September, I had the pleasure of talking with the co-writer and director Dan Allen about why he chose to remake a 1980’s Video Nastie as his first feature film.
You started making films at a young age what first got you into film making
When I was young my parents got me a couple of these, behind the scenes books, mainly for Jurassic Park (1993). It showed you all these animatronic dinosaurs, what they looked like without skin on. They had the camera pointed at scenes where they have a head poking in and if the camera pans slightly to the right you would have this dude with all this metal polls and stuff. I just loved that idea of making things for the screen.
I have always been interested in the construction of film and I think Jurassic Park was one of the first films, »

Rockstar Games have teased what could potentially be a new trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2.
The studio took to its social media earlier today and released an image caped in the famous Red Dead Redemption theme along with a date of Thursday, September 28th, 11am Est (4pm UK time).
Nothing else was announced in the post but the tease could potentially mean a new trailer for the highly anticipated sequel to the 2010 western action-adventure title.

Red Dead Redemption 2 was officially announced last October and a teaser trailer was released shortly thereafter.
Back in May, Rockstar Games revealed the sequel, which was originally scheduled for release in Autumn 2017, was delayed until Spring 2018.
Several screenshots from the game were also released. »

Review: House on Elm Lake (2017)
7 hours ago
I don’t think there is ever a good time to buy a house on a lake. I mean, why would you? Yeah it might be “pretty” or have a lovely view but the main problem is you’re out in the middle of nowhere. You may have one neighbour but they are all but guaranteed to be a nut-job. The rest is miles of trees and lake. If you ever get in trouble, you’re basically screwed. But I get it, people do buy these houses. But explain this to me. Why would you buy a house on a lake where recently someone murdered their entire family and then committed suicide (Hmm, sounds familiar) I honestly do not see the logic in it, at all. It’s basically horror 101 and you’re going to die. Or maybe not. Who knows?

Rollback Review: Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 1
20 September 2017 1:54 PM, PDT
“In every generation, there is a chosen one. She alone will stand against the Vampires, the Demons, and the Forces of Darkness. She is the Slayer.”
There must be about a million films, stories and TV related content that contains one particular scene. A vulnerable young woman, running for her life, terrified of whomever, or whatever, is pursuing her. She is utterly helpless to prevent her oncoming, horrible death – and most of the time is scantly clad. The scenario ends one of two ways – she either meets a terrible fate, or ends up getting saved by a dashing, Harrison Ford look alike male hero. Rinse, lather, repeat.
It once looked like that would be all we’d get from female characters in horror related productions. That was, until, a young writer came along named Joss Whedon, who decided that enough was enough. He had an idea of a young woman »

Review: Victoria & Abdul (2017)
20 September 2017 12:05 PM, PDT
With the whole world still seemingly in the grip of clown-mania, it’s doubly difficult for a movie to make a real impact at the moment. With Victoria & Albert however, we may have something that is powerful enough to step out of the shadows that It has created in cinematic circles this month.
The sequel to 1997’s Mrs. Brown, and based on the book of the same name as well as real-life events, Judie Dench reprises her role as Queen Victoria, now in her dotage at the age of 81. This second story echoes the sentiments of its predecessor, in that a servant finds favour with the ruler of the largest empire that the world has ever seen. Although Ali Fazal‘s Abdul Karim is a completely different character to the irreverent Scotsman portrayed by Billy Connolly in Mrs. Brown, the similarities are striking.

Video: iTom – Ep 1 – Prop Store Exhibition at London’s BFI IMAX
18 September 2017 4:31 AM, PDT
I visited the Prop Store exhibition at London’s BFI IMAX to ogle over the many props and costumes on display. The exhibition is currently running until the 26th September 2017 when everything will be sold at auction. So if you have a substantial amount of cash burning a hole in your pocket, hold out until then before you spend it.
Some of the items you’ll see include; Star-Lord’s helmet from Guardians of the Galaxy (2014), Thor’s Mjolnir hammer from Thor (2011), Maverick’s flight suit from Top Gun (1986), The Joker’s costume from Batman (1989) and Marty McFly’s Nike Air Mags from Back to the Future: Part II (1989). It’s an exhibition to make any film fanatic drool.
Check out my video above of the exhibition. »
