‘Dark Feed’, from the writers of ‘The Ward’, hits DVD in March

21 February 2013 12:02 PM, PST

I still haven’t watched John Carpenter’s The Ward yet so I can’t personally talk about the script. However, if it got Carpenter’s attention, I’m interested to see what other stories the writers can come up with. It looks like we won’t have to wait long to see the end result.

Trailer: From the Press Release:

A film crew moves to an abandoned psychiatric hospital with a shadowy past to shoot a low budget horror film.  The late nights and lack of sleep begin to take a toll, and the longer this crew works, the more the leaky, wet building seems to be coming back to life, feeding off its new inhabitants.  As the shoot wears on, members of the crew exhibit increasingly strange behavior leaving those still sane realizing they need to get out of this place before they too succumb to the building’s infectious hold. »

Mark Hamill Discusses His Involvement In ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’

20 February 2013 10:06 AM, PST

After what seems like an endless amount of articles involving fans and bloggers speculating what the next anticipated Star Wars installment will include or be about, we finally have some have something slightly more concrete to report.  Last week, Latino Review “broke the news” that Harrison Ford is about to sign a deal to return to the role of Han Solo.  However neither Lucasfilm nor the actor himself came out and confirmed this story; and the movie site failed to release their source for the story.  Rumors have always circulated about the inclusion of the three former leads from the original trilogy.  It isn’t until now though that we have had one of them speak so candidly about the upcoming films.  While making the rounds for his upcoming film Sushi Girl released by Magnet and Magnolia Pictures, Mark Hamill spoke to Entertainment Tonight and gave some info about his »

Check Out The Special Features and Cover Art For ‘Cloud Atlas’

20 February 2013 8:36 AM, PST

A film that general audiences were either just too confused about or too timid too confront was Cloud Atlas.  David Mitchell’s 2004 highly acclaimed novel was a hit with literary critics and book clubs when it was initially released but the ambitious film adaptation brought to the big-screen through the combined talents of the Wachowski’s and Tom Tykwer didn’t even break $30 million in the Us – something sadly that Identity Thief did in one weekend – and was met with some mixed reviews.  Thankfully the film fared much better abroad (bringing in $80 million) and the critics that did appreciate the film’s multi-dimensional structure and inspired casting were loud and proud with their praise of the film.  Cloud Atlas may have appeared on several “Worst of 2012″ lists but it broke into just as many “Best of 2012″ lists as well.  There’s no doubt that it’s an experimental project that »

The New Trailer For ’6 Souls’ Looks Soulless But Fun

19 February 2013 5:27 PM, PST

Having a handful of notable names behind a film doesn’t mean it’s going to see the light of day.  Look at what happened with Cabin in the Woods and Red Dawn.  Granted, there were bigger studio issue with those films that prevented them from being seen by moviegoers.  But even once all the kinks were worked out, executives were still timid about releasing them in theaters.  In the case of Red Dawn I can clearly see why; Josh Peck gave probably the worst performance I saw in a film last year but that’s the subject for an entirely different article.  Despite having a four time Oscar nominated actress in the form of Julianne Moore and a talented young Hollywood actor coming off a successful run with The Tudors which Jonathan Rhys Meyers was nominated twice for at the Globes, the film Shelter still collected dust on the shelf. »

Enter The ‘Sanitarium’ With This New Red-Band Trailer

18 February 2013 8:53 PM, PST

Over the past few years, horror fans have seen a resurgence of two former trends in the genre come back in a very big way: horror returning to television and anthology horror.  Just this month alone we were treated to both with the return of The Walking Dead as well as the gory alphabet anthology The ABC’s of Death (which you can hear Andy and I review Here).  Later this year we will see V/H/S/2 – formerly S-vhs – arrive in theaters and VOD, but prior to that, The Miami International Film Festival will premiere the next helping of horror shorts in the anthology SanitariumMalcolm McDowell leads a cast consisting of Robert Englund, Lacey Chabert, Lou Diamond PhillipsJohn Glover, and Walter Perez in three psychological stories directed by Kerry Valderama, Bryan Ortiz (both of whom worked on Doctor S Battled the Sex-Crazed Reefer Zombies: The Movie), and Bryan Ramirez. »

Get a little taste of NBC’s ‘Hannibal’ with this teaser

18 February 2013 7:46 AM, PST

When I was growing up, I was actually in a unique position where I saw Michael Mann’s Manhunter prior to Jonathan Demme’s adaptation of Thomas Harris’ bestseller The Silence of the Lambs. Do I think Demme had a better film than Mann, a little bit but I kind of dug Brian Cox’s interpretation of Hannibal Lector (or as it was spelled in that film Lecktor). I think it is a bit unfair to compare Cox to what Anthony Hopkins did with the character of Lector because Hopkins had more screen time. I can tell you I wasn’t a fan of the film Hannibal nor was I a fan of Red Dragon and never got around to seeing Hannibal Rising. I like what Bryan Fuller is trying to do with NBC’s Hannibal by telling the story that has never been told. How did detective Will Graham and Hannibal Lector meet? »
