New Vanishing On Seventh Street Trailer

6 December 2010 4:01 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

With a release date (at least in the Us) comes a new trailer for Vanishing on Seventh Street, the horror thriller from Session 9 and The Machinist's director Brad Anderson.It's different enough to the last one to be worth a look, although the basic thrust of Hayden Christensen finding that the streets have gone all 28 Days Later, teaming up with a disparate group of survivors (Thandie Newton, John Leguizamo, Jacob Lattimore), and learning to stay in what limited light is still available because they'll be got by the shadows otherwise, remains the same.Bits of the ropey Darkness Falls in that concept, as well as the aforementioned Danny Boyle zombie-fest, and a liberal splash of Invasion of the Body Snatchers. But Brad Anderson has yet to play a wrong note, so this ought to be a tense supernatural siege (even with Anakin Skywalker in the cast).Distributors Magnet »

Details Emerge for Werewolf Film Adaptation Red Moon

23 November 2010 | The Daily BLAM! | See recent The Daily BLAM! news »

Gotham Group (The Spiderwick Chronicles) have picked up the film rights to the novel Red Moon, which hasn't hit stores yet, but details are emerging via the author himself. The novel is about an alternate history in which Lycans (Werewolves) live amongst humans in exile but decide to revolt in a post 9/11 world. Red Moon's theme is described as a "clash of civilizations." "It's a narrative made of equal parts supernatural thriller, love story and political allegory. There are several interlocking storylines that reach across the globe and the space of several years. I've always felt that the best horror stories take a knife to cultural unease -- look at the way Frankenstein was born out of the Industrial Revolution or Invasion of the Body Snatchers connects to the Red Scare. So I'm »

19 November 2010 | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

Ruairi Robinson, director of that trailer you might have seen online call Blinky (video below), has been hired to direct the feature film The Animators . Qwerty Films is shepherding the sci-fi/horror film written by The Bunker 's Clive Dawson, who adapted Sydney J. Bounds' short story. The Playlist says the script follows a group of astronauts who touch down on martian soil and discover bacterial life. Things go awry from there. The site adds it is very reminiscent of Invasion of the Body Snatchers . Robinson should be casting the film soon. »

The James Clayton Column: the alien truth

18 November 2010 2:59 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The arrival of Skyline leaves James pondering the existence of aliens, Lovecraft, and an invasion of cells and smells. Probably best if we let him explain...

Do aliens exist? Of course they do! I’ve seen them in films! Ergo, they are real, no question. You can’t just get the green light and funding for movies that are made of lies and total falsehoods...

The cosmic rule is this: if more than three motion pictures have been based around the doubted concept then it’s genuine and actual. This is why we can be sure that there is a God, that there is a Holy Grail and that there are werewolves.

As for aliens, the amount of movie material devoted to extra-terrestrial life speaks for itself, and disbelievers are deluded and in denial. Pity these poor blinkered individuals and look upon them with sympathy as they roll their eyes »

Skyline Review

15 November 2010 12:04 PM, PST | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

Skyline Directed by: Colin and Greg Strause Written by: Joshua Cordes, Liam O'Donnell Starring: Eric Balfour, Donald Faison, Brittany Daniel, Scottie Thompson, David Zayas Skyline isn’t quite the penthouse – it’s more like a second floor walk-up. Its lumpy story arc, profusion of vanishing plot elements, and inadvertent humor (second hand smoke) are easy targets for reviewers who only live to snark. So, spoiler alert - no snark in this review (well, maybe just a little). But in spite of these haute cinematique defects, in Skyline, The Brothers Strause (as they would like to be known) earnestly strive to give you an authentic alien invasion experience. Unfortunately, they need human characters to propel the story and engage our emotion. That’s where they come up a little short but, I suspect, not short enough to ruin a nicely detailed alien onslaught for Sf fans. With an excellent SFX resume (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, »

Review: Skyline

12 November 2010 1:30 PM, PST | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

I fell asleep last night in front of the TV while it played Independence Day, The Matrix, Scanners, Invasion of the Body Snatchers and The Mist, and man I had the Craziest dream. Oh wait, no I didn't. I just went to a midnight screening of Skyline. This is one strange, stupid, screwed-up mess of a movie. As much as I really want to hate this film, Skyline sets a new bar for shows-that-should-be-MST3K-fodder. Some movies are meant to be serious and some are meant to be comedies. Then there are the little nuggets that, while meant to be serious, are just more comical than they were ever supposed to be. Watching this at midnight with a bunch of friends will remain one of my more enjoyable memories.

Skyline isn't just bad. It tricks you into thinking it might actually be good. Opening credits, first shot, you have an »

Framed: Invasion of the Body Snatchers

Filed under: Columns, Horror, Cinematical

Welcome to Framed, a column at Cinematical that runs every Thursday and celebrates the artistry of cinema -- one frame at a time.

Philip Kaufman's 1978 updating of Don Siegel's 1956 sci-fi classic, 'Invasion of the Body Snatchers,' doesn't stray too far from the original -- trading a Cold War climate for Watergate and post-Vietnam anxiety -- topping it off with darkly comedic jabs at the new Me Decade's navel-gazing and self-help sales pitch: "You will be born again into an untroubled world." The time was ripe and ready for a reimagining, and with the backing of an intelligent cast -- including Donald Sutherland, Jeff Goldblum, Brooke Adams, Veronica Cartwright, and Leonard Nimoy -- along with well-crafted scares that use aural and visual effects instead of cheap thrills. Kaufman and cinematographer Michael Chapman created an epic and relevant thriller for the times that's »

Spooks ends. The Walking Dead arrives in the UK. Misfits is back. And The Royle Family get a special night to themselves. Plus lots of movies!

One of the highlights of the telly weekend arrives tonight, Friday  November 5th in the highly anticipated debut of The Walking Dead, at 10:00pm on FX. The first of six episodes of the comic book-based zombie series is entitled Days Gone Bye, and gets off to a gruesome start from soon after the first few frames.

A brief history of the alien invasion movie

1 November 2010 10:06 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

As the Strause Brothers’ Skyline prepares to take over cinemas, we take a look back at the 50s era of classic alien invasion films…

Looking back over the history of science fiction cinema, it's fascinating to note just how long it took aliens to invade the big screen. Hg Wells' The War Of The Worlds popularised the alien invasion subgenre in 1897, but it would be more than 50 years before an adaptation made it to the big screen.

Before the 1950s, sci-fi cinema was dominated by mad scientists and monsters on the rampage, from James Whale's 1931 classic Frankenstein to Ernest B. Schoedsack's brilliantly odd Dr. Cyclops (1940), in which a mad professor shrinks a group of explorers using radiation.

It took the post-war paranoia of the Cold War to usher in a golden age of sci-fi, and with it, a rash of alien invasion movies. These invasions came in many forms, »

'The Walking Dead' Creators And Cast Name Their Favorite Horror Movies

31 October 2010 11:01 AM, PDT | MTV Splash Page | See recent MTV Splash Page news »

"The Walking Dead" makes its long-awaited debut on AMC this weekend, offering one heck of a Halloween treat for television audiences.

Given the timing of the premiere, it's easy to guess what the "Walking Dead" cast and creators will be doing this Halloween, but what about in years past? Given all the time they've spent around zombies lately, I asked "The Walking Dead" team about their go-to horror movies for the Halloween season, and which scare-fests get pulled from their shelf every year around this time.

We gave you an early peek at Frank Darabont and Gale Anne Hurd's answers last week, and now you can find out what the rest of the cast and creative team had to say.

Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes in "The Walking Dead"): I don't know whether it was that, when I was younger there were better movies being made, I'm not sure — but I loved "The Omen. »

It's Halloween Time: What are You Watching?

29 October 2010 | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

Don't you just love it when Halloween falls on a weekend? Sure, Sunday's a bit rough party-wise since it's back to work Monday, however, Friday and Saturday leaves you plenty of time to put the final touches on your costume, devour candy and pumpkin ice cream and partake in a horror movie marathon. I'll admit, I've been an AMC junkie the last week and a half. But it's time to cut the umbilical chord and start spinning some films I've been waiting to revisit, specifically, on Halloween day. SE7EN (Just bought the Blu-Ray, can't wait to dive in.) Invasion Of The Body Snatchers '78 (Haven't seen it in years.) The Serpent And The Rainbow (Girlfriend's suggestion. Another one I haven't seen in a while.) Angel Heart (Keepin' the voodoo mojo going...) The Devil »

The James Clayton column: Happy Halloween. Show 'em some horror

28 October 2010 12:34 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Halloween? It should all be about the scary movies, reckons James...

Dear Den Of Geek readers, I bid thee Happy Halloween. Actually, wishing you a "Happy Halloween" probably isn't proper protocol at all. Some scrote (let's call him Damien) would no doubt enter the frame if I did and tell me I've got it all wrong, then spit on me, pee on my shoes and give me the evil eye for my ignorance.

Really, I'm probably meant to jump up behind you in a Leatherface mask and scream, but then I'm liable to end up disabled by a kung fu reflex self-defence strike or accidently scare you to death and consequently go down on a manslaughter charge. I can't take that kind of rap, man. Guys like me don't do well in prison.

Allegories, Expectations and Effects: Round 1 with Monsters director Gareth Edwards

27 October 2010 8:06 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

One of the more patient and subtle genre films to come along in some time, Gareth Edwards' directorial debut, Monsters, is a film with a title iconic and nebulous enough moniker to build a certain set of expectations like an array of dominoes.  One of the chief delights of the film is watching the filmmaker, his actors and crew then knock them over or simply re-arrange them in unexpected ways.  A true genre-masher in every sense of the word:  part road-trip, part alien invasion, part romantic drama - but constructed in a way that gets some savvy and smarts on the table without ever detracting from the overall organic experience of watching an interesting story play out. 

It is certainly the hope of this writer that you do yourself a favour and trek to the local cinema if it is screening Monsters.  For a micro-budgeted film, it looks gorgeous on the big screen, »

Blu-ray Reviews of The Invasion Of The Body Snatchers (1978), The Return Of The Living Dead, The Amityville Horror (2005), and The Order

23 October 2010 7:59 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

20th Century Fox is one of the most frustrating companies to deal with when it comes to Blu-ray. When it comes to their big releases, they do great work, but when it comes to catalog, it’s hard to say or know what you’re going to get. It’s great that they’re putting a lot of catalog out – like Warner Brothers they seem invested in the format – but if you already have the film on DVD, you may have to hold your old copy if you want the supplements. The 1978 remake of Invasion of the Body Snatchers, The Return of the Living Dead, the 2005 remake of The Amityville Horror and The Order all come with varying degrees of their original supplements on Blu-ray. And my review of this quartet of Blu-rays follows after the jump

Phillip Kaufman’s Invasion of the Body Snatchers is easily the best of the lot. »

Our science-fiction and fantasy top 25: who's lost in space?

21 October 2010 6:17 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Do you think we stepped into a parallel universe while making our choices for the best films of this genre? Wield your critical lightsaber below

See the full list here

In space, no one can hear you seethe. For our penultimate movie-wrangling exercise, we've tackled the biggest one of them all, the death star of genres: science fiction. Surely nowhere else within film fandom are opinions so strongly held, enthusiasms so passionate. It is surely no coincidence that Jedi is an officially recognised religion, while Lebowski-ism is not (though it may not be too far away).

Read the list of our top 25 films across sci-fi and fantasy and you'll find all the iconic movies of the last 40 years are represented: Star Wars, Blade Runner, Alien and, in the fantasy section, Lord of the Rings. The one film that rules them all, however, is Kubrick's 2001, a more intellectual take on science »
