Drive-In Dust Offs: The Pit (1981)

What appears on the page is not always what appears on the screen. The screenwriter has most times defined what he/she hopes to see translated, but that’s not always the case (and when it isn’t, it’s usually for the worse). However, sometimes a film will morph from the pen to the multiplex in a post-faithful state that exceeds expectations. One such film is The Pit (1981), a Canadian made, Us lensed flick that started out as a psychological breakdown of a delusional little boy, and ended up in B Movie Heaven, where it is personally fanned and fed grapes by Ed Wood and William Castle on a daily basis. There’s no other film quite like it.

The Pit, Aka Teddy, was thrust upon an unsuspecting public October 23rd by New World Pictures in the States. Produced by Amulet Pictures (the fine folks who later begat Spring Fever

Sony’s Launch Party Offers Six Weeks Of New PlayStation 4 Games

Sony’s annual Spring Fever event guarantees variety and excellence to the games on tap. Last year’s outing gave Helldivers, Titan Souls, Axiom Verge, and Hotline Miami 2 the limelight, but 2016’s showcase has retired the old moniker. To celebrate the first, and third-party developers working on several high-profile PlayStation 4 games, Sony rebranded the experience.

The new event name: Launch Party.

The PlayStation Store Launch Party will follow a familiar pattern, releasing one digital PS4 title each week until the campaign runs its course. Setting an example for the rest of the lineup, Salt and Sanctuary ushers in the six-week spectacle next Tuesday.

Ska Studios remained adamant that Salt and Sanctuary would be ready when it’s ready. Fans waited 17 months (who’s counting?) since the game’s announcement, so what’s another couple days? Players should expect “deep combat and rich RPG elements, all set in a cursed realm of forgotten cities,

Here Is Everything You Could Possibly Want to Know About the Beautiful Horses in Taylor Swift’s ‘Blank Space’ Video
This week, Maryland's Frederick News-Post has the profile of Taylor Swift's "Blank Space" horses you didn't know you needed. In it, we learn everything a human being could possibly want to know about the video's majestic Andalusians. Their names? Chico and Paco. Their home? Mount Airy's Spring Fever Farm, a six-hour drive from the haunted Long Island mansion that served as the set (and has since burned down in a "mystery fire"). Their ambition? To be the finest onscreen horses in the country, at least according to their owner, Diana Beuchert, who considers their role in the music video their "big break."Other fascinating tidbits the profile reveals: Both the horses and their owner were forbidden from discussing the shoot. "[My agent] said, 'You cannot breathe a word of this to anyone; it's Taylor Swift and it’s her music video,'" Beuchert recalled ... "I just about dropped the phone." One

Eli Roth has announced a remake of Cabin Fever.

The writer-director of the 2002 horror film will serve as executive producer on the movie.

Travis Zariwny (Intruder) will direct, using the same script as the original.

All hell breaks loose when they begin to fall victim to a horrifying flesh-eating virus.

Blu-ray Review – Cabin Fever: Patient Zero (Image)

We all remember the controversy that surrounded the production of Cabin Fever 2, where director Ti West was met with overwhelming studio-interference, to the point that he tried to have his name removed from the project. I don’t have the second film, but there is no denying that it is “bad”. Still, though it had a somewhat entertaining quality, even if it was a bastardized version of what it was originally intended. After that, there was always talk of a new sequel, and even a reboot, and now that a sequel has actually been produced, it seems as though, instead of making a film that connections to Patient Zero, like they originally intended, they’re going with a reboot of the series instead. Nevertheless, Patient Zero exists, so how does it stack up against the first two films? Well, it is definitely better than Spring Fever, but there is a catch.

Nyaff 2014 Review: Blind Massage, An Artful And Affecting Ensemble Drama

Often controversial Chinese filmmaker Lou Ye delivers one of his finest films with Blind Massage, a delicately observed and artfully directed ensemble drama, based on the novel of the same name by Bi Feiyu. Putting aside, at least for the time being, the intensely sexualized scenarios that marked some of his previous films (Summer Palace, Spring Fever, Love and Bruises, Mystery), Lou immerses us in a unique world - that of the blind - that's never been captured on film in quite this way. Sighted professional actors playing blind, including some Lou regulars, mesh seamlessly with actual non-sighted and partially-sighted amateurs to create a broad canvas encompassing several stories that are all engrossing and beautifully rendered.Blind Massage begins with an offscreen narrator (who is heard...

Cabin Fever: Patient Zero Review

In all fairness, director Kaare Andrews could have shown colonoscopy footage for an hour and a half and it still would have entertained viewers longer than Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever managed to – but our ambitious auteur goes above and beyond by delivering a sequel more in line with Roth’s original cult phenomenon. Sure, Rider Strong doesn’t drop in for another “explosive” cameo, but back once again is Roth’s flesh-eating virus, and this time it’s ready for the big leagues. Cabin Fever: Patient Zero is a puss-ridden, grotesque, splattery bit of biological horror, and while it lacks the indie charms that wooed franchise fans initially, Andrews’ pseudo-reboot could be the start of something nasty – rivaling Roth’s signature brand of stomach-turning visual horrors.

Since ruining a friendly vacation and eating through a prom, officials are still struggling to contain the hungry virus causing so much devastation.

Review: Cabin Fever: Patient Zero

Eleven years after Eli Roth’s Cabin Fever, and five years after Ti West’s Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever, horror’s tiniest serial killer is back, with a new installment from Kaare Andrews, a director probably best known for his 2013 ABCs of Death segment.

Officially a prequel rather than a sequel, Cabin Fever: Patient Zero attempts to provide an origin story for the virus, while still delivering enough laughs and gore to keep fans of the previous two films happy. However, like its predecessor Spring Fever, this latest strain of the franchise lacks the infectious inventiveness and sheer bite that made Roth’s first film a cult classic: in horror terms, think mild rash, rather than full-on flesh-eating fury.

Employing a dual narrative technique, Andrews’s film splits the action into two distinct storylines. One of these centers on a remote research facility, where scientists battle to find a

SteamWorld Dig (PlayStation 4) Review

Once Upon a Time in the West.

Stepping onto the sun-scorched plains of the wild, wild west — or, more accurately, the PlayStation Store — this week is Image & Form’s 2D platformer, SteamWorld Dig. Much like its unassuming protagonist, the company’s side-scrolling adventure has clambered up the gaming hierarchy over the last six months. Once a 3Ds eShop exclusive, the digital mining expedition is currently available through PC platforms and, more recently, on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita as part of Sony’s annual Spring Fever promotion.

Upon first glance, it’d be easy to dismiss SteamWorld Dig as a smorgasbord of different genres. From Spelunky’s loot-mongering to the resource management found in Terraria, the game undoubtedly draws from other titles in the side-scrolling genre. However, after several wondrous playthroughs, I soon discovered Image & Form’s title to be much, much more than the sum of its assimilated parts — the wild west,

X Marks The Spot: SteamWorld Dig Hits PS4, Ps Vita March 18th

From the harsh, sun-scorched plains of the western frontier to PlayStation platforms, Swedish indie studio Image & Form confirmed today that its mining platformer, SteamWorld Dig, will make its way onto PS4 and Ps Vita on March 18th and 19th in North America and Europe, respectively.

Initially released through the Nintendo eShop back in August of last year, the indie gem garnered critical acclaim for its atmospheric setting and grizzled protagonist, Rusty. After making your way to the humble village of Tumbleton, players are tasked with unearthing resources and the buried secrets of the town in typical, side-scrolling fashion.

Additionally, SteamWorld Dig also features a variety of abilities that users can unlock in exchange for excavated cash and gems — including wall-climbing and the ever-useful steam punch. Undoubtedly, Image & Form’s 2D western draws from games such as Terraria, given the inventory management and retro aesthetic.

Priced at $9.99 (€8.99), the game will be

Cabin Fever 3 - Patient Zero: DVD review

Director: Kaare Andrews. Review: Adam Wing. What's that you say, Cabin Fever 3? What the hell happened to Cabin Fever 2? Spring Fever, you say? Nope. Still doesn't ring a bell. In all fairness, you'd be forgiven for missing the second part of this unwanted trilogy altogether. Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever was a mess of a movie, a film so terrifyingly bad even the director disowned it. To be fair to Ty West (The Innkeepers), the finished article was nothing like the film he envisaged, having abandoned the film at the start of post-production, but the studio stepped in and Cabin Fever 2 emerged, the product of too many cooks and not enough good taste. The original entry in the series, directed by Eli Roth, was one of the better cabin-in-the-woods movies, with unpredictable twists, a welcome dose of homage, sharp humour and gore aplenty. Now comes the horror sequel nobody asked for,

Berlin Film Review: ‘Blind Massage’

Berlin Film Review: ‘Blind Massage’
Non-conformist Chinese auteur Lou Ye has always trained his sensuous gaze on outsiders, and in “Blind Massage,” he explores the fringe existence of sight-impaired masseurs and masseuses from an unsentimental distance. Demystifying their specialized profession and evoking their arduous search for love and stability, Lou’s detachment — often an artsy pose in his other films — has a kind of tactfulness here that allows these absorbing stories to speak for themselves. The helmer’s second feature made with the Chinese film bureau’s official approval, this French-Chinese co-production is no more mainstream than his previous work. Likely to enjoy critical buzz but lukewarm domestic B.O., it will nonetheless find its way into his usual festivals and European arthouses.

At the Sha Zongqi Massage Center in Nanjing, fully and partially blind employees enjoy an oasis outside what they call “mainstream society.” Run on a slick management model by blind partners Zhang

Get Infected with First 'Cabin Fever 3: Patient Zero' Trailer
When it comes to fun throwback-style horror flicks, they don't get much better than Cabin Fever, made by Eli Roth in 2002.  Ti West followed up Roth's film with the sequel Spring Fever in 2009, a hot mess that resulted from producers hijacking West's vision and cutting together their own version of the movie he intended to make - West has since disowned the movie completely, and even tried to get his name taken off of it.

Next year, the fever returns in Cabin Fever: Patient Zero, the first of two prequels that delves into the origin story of the virus that left Jordan Ladd without a face and that dude from Boy Meets World covered in blood.  In Patient Zero, a group of friends travel to a distant Caribbean island for some fun in the sun, a vacation that quickly turns into a nightmare when a horrific infection shows up and tags along.
