Review: Ejecta

28 February 2015 2:33 PM, PST

It can be really hard to create new and compelling sci-fi stories involving aliens these days, especially on an indie scale. That’s why I will give Ejecta and its filmmakers, Chad Archibald and Matt Wiele, a lot of credit for what they've put together here. Unfortunately though, the scares are as scarce as movie’s alien antagonists, the story suffers from a bit of an identity crisis, and the lackluster conclusion left me feeling pretty underwhelmed by the time it was over.

Ejecta follows William Cassidy (Julian Richings),  a troubled man who believes he’s being tormented by an alien life form and has taken to posting his theories online over the years out of frustration for his otherworldly predicament. One night, he reaches out to a documentarian (Adam Seybold) about his suspicions that aliens are going to be returning during a cosmic event and the two set out »

28 February 2015 2:10 PM, PST

We're back with another video round-up, this time featuring clips from HBO's Game of Thrones Season 5 and the Julia Stiles-starring horror film, Out of the Dark (now in theaters), as well as two videos featuring renowned filmmaker Joe Dante discussing a pair of Roger Corman titles that Kino Lorber is releasing to Blu-ray this May: X: The Man with the X-Ray Eyes and The Premature Burial (we also have a look at the final cover art and details on the bonus features for both Ray Milland-starring movies).

Game of Thrones Season 5: “Game of Thrones follows kings and queens, knights and renegades, liars and noblemen who are engaged in a deadly cat-and-mouse game for control of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros.

Indie Spotlight: Watch the Short Film ‘Killer Kart’

27 February 2015 6:03 PM, PST

"They're killers. All of ’em. They might not always strike, but they always want to. They devote their existence to shoppers, and what do they get in return? Abused. Mistreated. Hit by cars because people can't walk the ten feet to put ’em back in their proper place."

Intruder meets Christine in James Feeney's Killer Kart, an expertly crafted short film that pits a supermarket's closing crew against a vengeful four-wheeled adversary that's a lot smaller than a ’58 Plymouth Fury scorned, but is every bit as vicious. Killer Kart recently had the honor of being featured on ShortoftheWeek.com, and we now have the highly entertaining horror comedy for Daily Dead readers to enjoy.

Synopsis: "The shopping cart. Four wheels, one basket, and tonight, for the closing crew of a small-town grocery store, a blood-splattered aluminum nightmare!"

Cast & Crew:Written and directed by James Feeney and produced by Andrew Fairbank, »

Impressions: Sideshow Collectibles’ Queen of the Dead Premium Format Figure

27 February 2015 3:57 PM, PST

I first gazed upon Sideshow Collectibles' Court of the Dead series in person at the 2014 San Diego Comic-Con, and while they’ve released a number of original pieces over the years, this is their first major push in creating an original, dark fantasy world, one filled with unique characters.

Court of the Dead is spearheaded by Tom Gilliland, Sideshow's Creative Director, who gave us a personal tour of their Comic-Con booth last year, as well as an in-depth look at the new line. Seeing all of the Court of the Dead figures together and learning about Sideshow’s creative process was a fascinating experience. That being said, getting the chance to personally unbox, assemble, and photograph the Queen of the Dead Premium Format Figure, courtesy of Sideshow Collectibles, was nothing short of incredible, as she's sure to make a perfect addition to anyone's collection.

For those unfamiliar, Queen of the Dead is named Gethsemoni, »

Watch a New Clip from It Follows

27 February 2015 9:33 AM, PST

"It could look like someone you know, or it could be a stranger in a crowd. Whatever helps it get close to you. It can look like anyone... but there's only one of it." The sunny summer turns sinister for 19-year-old Jay when a creeping, transformative force enters her life in It Follows, the second film from The Myth of the American Sleepover writer/director David Robert Mitchell—one that, like his debut, takes place in Detroit. Ahead of the horror film's theatrical release on March (Friday the) 13th, a new clip has been released that teases the eerie end to Jay's date.

“For 19-year-old Jay (Monroe), the fall should be about school, boys and weekends at the lake. Yet, after a seemingly innocent sexual encounter she suddenly finds herself plagued by nightmarish visions; she can’t shake the sensation that someone, or something, is following her. As the threat closes in, »

26 February 2015 7:08 PM, PST

After all these years, the story of Rick Deckard will continue. A Blade Runner sequel started to pick up steam back in 2011 when it was announced that Ridley Scott would return to direct. While Scott is still creatively involved, it has been revealed that he'll be passing the torch to another director. What is still a big surprise, even after his involvement in the latest Star Wars film, is that Harrison Ford is set to reprise his role as Deckard:

Press Release via /Film: "Los Angeles, CA, February 26, 2015 — Harrison Ford will reprise his celebrated role of Rick Deckard in the sequel to Alcon Entertainment’s Blade Runner and Academy Award nominee Denis Villeneuve to (Prisoners, Incendies) is in negotiations to direct, it was announced by Alcon co-founders and co-ceo’s Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson.

Review: The Lazarus Effect

26 February 2015 6:48 PM, PST

These days, you generally don’t see too many “science gone amok” stories (especially theatrically), which made The Lazarus Effect such a refreshing experience. While it fits perfectly into the wheelhouse of other films I enjoy from that same sub-genre (The Fly, Flatliners, Re-Animator and to a certain degree, Pet Semetery), it does a nice job of blazing its own path along the way. And rather than just exploring the devastatingly immediate effects of pushing the boundaries of science, like many of its predecessors, The Lazarus Effect puts a really interesting twist on the sci-fi/horror mash-up by finding a way to quietly examine the ideals of faith and the repercussions of our actions without ever getting too heavy-handed about it.

In The Lazarus Effect, we meet a research team, headed by Frank (Mark Duplass) and Zoe (Olivia Wilde), who have made a recent breakthrough on their Lazarus Serum- a »

The Walking Deceased (slated for a March 20th release): "The Walking Deceased is a delightfully bloody addition to the pantheon of zombie-apocalypse spoofs.
