Video of the Day: Watch the first episode of Vincenzo Natali’s ‘Darknet’

Filmmaker Vincenzo Natali made a name for himself among genre fans with his debut feature Cube, making the transition from years of storyboard work on shows such as Beetlejuice and The Adventures of Tintin. Earlier this year, however, Natali made a move away from theatrical content, as his first feature since 2009′s Splice, titled Haunter, saw a release to On-Demand platforms concurrently with a limited run on the big screen. Now Natali has made a more concrete shift, with the tv series Darknet. Working with producer Steve Hoban, best known for Ginger Snaps, the first episode of the series has been released online ahead of the show’s premiere in January, and can be seen below.

‘Haunter’ Trailer Tells It Like the Ghost Sees It

I know what you’re thinking – another haunted house movie? And to that I say “Yes. Hush, there is a reason we’re on to a fifth Paranormal Activity movie.” Now here’s where Haunter is going to be different. Haunter is told from the ghosts’ perspective, and these spirits aren’t so keen on being dead. In fact, teenage Lisa (Abigail Breslin) and her entire family aren’t quite aware that they’re haunting their own house until it occurs to them that they’re reliving the same day over and over again. But once Lisa figures out that she was murdered, she reaches out to the teenage girl currently residing in her old room to stop her from suffering the same fate. Beetlejuice this is not; it doesn’t look like there will be any fun interdimensional bonding or ghost pranks going on between the teenage girls. Expect lots of jumpy shots of ghosts and

Scanners III: The Takeover Blu-ray Review

Director: Christian Duguay

Starring: Liliana Komorowska, Steve Parrish, Valerie Valois, Colin Fox, Daniel Pilon, Peter Wight,

Running Time: 104 Minutes

Certificate: 18

Scanners II: The New Order was a nice little surprise, so surely this third instalment released the same year, with the same director and writer, would be another interesting take on the telekinetic warriors known as Scanners? You’d be wrong to think that. Scanners III: The Takeover is an appalling end to the trilogy, and one where it would be giving the film too much credit to even suggest that the hilarity one experiences whilst watching, is in anyway intentional.

It appears Duguay and writer B.J. Nelson put all their effort into Part II, because some of this film is simply inconceivable. You know you’re on to a loser when the opening crawl (an unnecessary opening crawl) claims some of the key events in the mythology took place in the 1940s,

SXSW 2013 Day 3: Lines Begin to Blur

South by Southwest 2013 day 3 has arrived and despite getting the most sleep I've had in the past week, I'm slightly worn out. It only mildly phases me that as I eat my breakfast, Ken Marino and Martin Starr are two tables away from me doing an interview with someone wearing a camera on his forehead. My eyes feel a few blinks away from sleep. This chair might as well be made of clouds and dreams. This coffee isn't working. It may be time to call upon the healing powers of strong drink.

On top of being robbed of an hour of sleep by the cruel gods of Daylight Savings, yesterday was a non-stop 18+ hours of line waiting, street walking and, of course, movie watching. It also included getting to breathe the same air as Paul Rudd and Olivia Wilde, but that's neither here nor there. Where was I? Oh yes,

FEARnet Movie Review: 'Haunter'

FEARnet Movie Review: 'Haunter'
I look forward to a new Vincenzo Natali movie like most movie geeks anticipate the next feature from Steven Spielberg or Martin Scorsese. Ever since I stumbled across his 1997 debut film Cube, which still stands up (despite its lesser sequels) as a very novel approach to cerebral horror or dark fantasy or violent sci-fi... I'm not exactly sure. From there he made Cypher (2002), Nothing (2003), and Splice (2009), all of which are A) cool, B) creepy, or C) a combination of cool and creepy.

So it was with much enthusiasm that I leapt into Mr. Natali's latest effort, the haunted house story known simply as Haunter.

Already I can hear what you're thinking: another haunted house movie? My response is a loud "yep!" because, hey, if we're going  to get endless permutations on the sub-genre (including everything Paranormal Activity, Insidious, and Sinister), we may as well shine a light on the most creative ones.

Mad Max's Weekend Movie Guide: 'Oz' & More

"Frightened? Child, you're talking to a man who's laughed in the face of death, sneered at doom, and chuckled at catastrophe ... I was petrified." –'The Wizard of Oz' (1939)

Greetings from the apocalypse! As North Korea readies their nukes for a pre-emptive strike against the U.S., and Dennis Rodman plays a game of pick-up basketball with supreme leader Kim Jong-un with the very survival of the planet on the line, I'm ready for a solid weekend of moviegoing. How about you? Sure you are. If you're really worried about Kim's missiles made out of Campbell's Soup cans and old Sony Walkmans, then go to Home Depot and grab a 30-dollar tarp to cover your roof with. That oughta do the trick.

Vincenzo Natali Scares Up A Haunter

Vincenzo Natali Scares Up A Haunter
Post-Splice, director Vincenzo Natali has been attached to a few potential projects. They've all been literary adaptations, including Jg Ballard's High Rise, Roderick Gordon and Brian Williams' Tunnels series, and most excitingly, William Gibson's Neuromancer. Natalis has ticked the box marked "none of the above" for the time being though, since his immediate next film has just been announced as Haunter.Described as a "reverse ghost story", Haunter stems from an original screenplay by Brian King, who also wrote Natali's Cypher in 2002. It seems to have shades of The Others and Beetlejuice, in that it's told from the perspective of the haunter rather than the haunted: in this case a girl called Lisa who's been manifesting in the same house since she met an unfortunate end in 1986. She sees an opportunity for some closure when new girl Olivia moves in.So what's happened to Neuromancer? Immediatey the

Neca: First Official 'Beetlejuice' Action Figure Image!

If you remember, one of Neca's first ever line of figures was from Tim Burton's Beetlejuice - and they were Horrid. They're making up for them this year with brand new figures featuring Michael Keaton as "The ghost with the most" from the classic 1988 film. He will be joining Stuntman Mike in Cult Classics Action Figures Series 7, arriving in stores this year. I can't wait to see the carousel head version and the Reagan big sequence from The Exorcist. Read on for the legend himself.
