Limbo Lounge

An original graphic novel where newly dead people in Limbo await their fate at a bar while surrounded by bored interlopers from hell. This trippy, surreal, full-color adventure brings us from the hot, swirling sands of hell to the colorfully bizarre Limbo Lounge. Meet flower-headed freaks, Bud and Lou. Root for their new friend, a spry, elderly nun, Sister Eunice, as she works remotely in Limbo continuing to rid earth of despicable dirt bags. And, by all means, avoid the knife-wielding little pageant-princess-gone-bad as she plots for anything she can get at anyone’s expense. The Limbo Lounge is the auspicious debut of a line of Yoe Books graphic novels.

David Calver’s eye-popping, whimsical, and occasionally disturbing illustrations can be seen everywhere from Vanity Fair and The New York Times to Playboy and Rolling Stone. Advance solicited for October release!

Raul Castillo Talks Working on Surreal ‘Limbo’ Short With Sam Elliott

Raul Castillo Talks Working on Surreal ‘Limbo’ Short With Sam Elliott
Award-winning live-action short “Limbo,” starring Raul Castillo and featuring the voice of Sam Elliott, will be premiere on Vimeo on June 27.

Limbo,” adapted from an untitled Meathaus graphic novella by Marian Churchland by director Will Blank and Richard Kaponas, tells the tale of a man stranded alone through the desert who encounters a mysterious dying dog.

“There’s no doubt that Marian Churchland’s voice drew me to ‘Limbo.’ Our director, Will Blank, very wisely, included the original source material when he first sent me the script and I felt that if we stayed loyal to Marian’s comic, then we would be in good hands,” says Castillo, who starred in HBO’s “Looking,” “Also, getting to act opposite an animatronic dog voiced by Sam Elliott was a huge plus.”

Director Blank says Elliott was his first choice to voice the dog, and mentioned it to producer Casey Fenton, who said “Why don’t we ask him?”

“I laughed and agreed it was worth a shot,” he explains. After first reaching out to Elliott’s voiceover agent and then having the project featured in IndieWire’s Project of the Day, they heard back. “We faxed Sam the comic and received an enthusiastic yes,” says Blank. “He really blew all of our minds and it was a true joy to work with him.”

Elliott provided the voice of the mystical dying dog, which was created by creature designer Tim Martin. The design and construction of the fully functional animatronic dog puppet was a key aspect of the production. It was operated by three puppeteers.

Elliott is currently starring in “The Hero,” about an aging Western star facing his mortality and trying to reconnect with his estranged daughter.

Blank said Churchland’s novella resonated with him because he was going through some personal struggles at the time. “I related to the feeling of being untethered, full of regret and uncertain what to do next,” he says. “Against that emotional backdrop, the interaction between the man and a supernatural dog felt fresh and interesting; it was a catalyst I needed in my own life.”

The short, which premiered at Fantasia Fest, recently won Cine Gear’s Independent Short Film Award and has played at a number of festivals, including Toronto After Dark and Fantastic Fest.

The top 30 underappreciated films of 1999

Odd List Ryan Lambie Simon Brew 21 Nov 2013 - 05:51

The underappreciated films of 1999 are the focus in our last list of 90s overlooked greats...

The year 1999 was a significant year for film in many ways. Apart from being the year that George Lucas began his Star Wars prequels with The Phantom Menace, it also saw the release of The Blair Witch Project, a horror film which became one of the first to use the internet as a marketing tool, resulting in a massive hit. The Matrix ushered in a new age of special effects filmmaking, arguably paving the way for the superhero blockbusters crowding into multiplexes today.

Mainly, though, 1999 was simply a brilliant year for film. Justly lauded movies like Fight Club, The Green Mile and Eyes Wide Shut aside, there were a huge number of films that didn't get the critical or financial success they deserved - so many,

Interview: John Sayles Talks Go For Sisters

Go for Sisters, a new film by director/writer John Sayles, the godfather of American independent cinema (Return of the Secaucus Seven, Brother from Another Planet, Lone Star, Limbo), is just as I expect in a John Sayles film; beautifully written, beautifully acted, mature and always relevant -- the qualities so rare in mainstream American cinema these days. Recently I had a chance to talk to him briefly on the phone about his new film, Edward James Olmos and the country's immigration reform debate.Twitch: Can you tell me the origin of Go For Sisters?John Sayles: Chinese smugglers of illegal immigrants are called Snakeheads. There was a case in New York where the head of this organization got indicted for human trafficking. She was operating in...

The top 25 underappreciated films of 1996

Odd List Ryan Lambie Simon Brew 31 Oct 2013 - 07:01

We train our sights on the year 1996, and the 25 underappreciated films it has to offer...

Independence Day managed to revive both the alien invasion movie and the disaster flick in 1996, and just about every other mainstream picture released that year lived in its saucer-shaped shadow.

Yet beyond the aerial battles of Independence Day, the flying cows in Twister, and the high-wire antics of Tom Cruise in Brian De Palma's Mission: Impossible, there sat an entire library of lesser-known and underappreciated movies.

As part of our attempts to highlight the unsung greats of the 90s, here's our selection of 25 such films from 1996 - the year chess champion Garry Kasparov lost to the might of the computer Deep Blue, and the year comedy star Jim Carrey starred in an unexpectedly dark tale of obsession...

Clip joint: great movie jackets

The movies have given us some seriously meaningful jackets over the years. Here's my pick - what are yours?

Daniel Fitzpatrick runs a monthly Midnight Movie event in Dublin called Hollywood Babylon.

In novels there are all sorts of ways to reveal to the reader what a protagonist is like, though these revelations can take time. Cinema has a mere hour or so in which to describe a character or situation, showing us in a flash what it would be impossible to narrate. This is where a nifty bit of set dressing or art direction comes in handy.

So that's movies and this is 'great movie jackets'.

The movies have given us so many coolly iconic, memorable jackets over the years – but we are looking for something else, something more meaningful.

Alphas Ep. 2.1, “Wake Up Call”: A prison break pulls the gang back together

Alphas Review, Season 2, Episode 1, “Wake Up Call”

Written by Robert Hewitt Wolfe

Directed by Matt Hastings

Airs Mondays at 10 pm (Et) on SyFy

When Alphas premiered last July, it drew comparisons to Heroes with its characters learning to cope with extraordinary abilities. While it lacked the grand ambitions of the fallen NBC series, it compensated with more heart and an excellent lead performance. Veteran character actor David Strathairn (Limbo, Good Night and Good Luck) brings a surprising weight to Dr. Lee Rosen that enhances the drama. The world-weary guy doesn’t have powers, but the neurologist/psychologist has worked for years to help these “Alphas” handle their skills. His team includes strong man Bill (Malik Yoba), ultimate sharp shooter Cameron (Warren Christie), mental influencer Nina (Laura Mennell), sense-heightener Rachel (Azita Ghanizada), and the autistic but hyperkinetic Gary (Ryan Cartwright). They’re an oddly matched team of heroes but work together

'Mass Effect 3': First impressions (after 20 hours of gameplay)

'Mass Effect 3': First impressions (after 20 hours of gameplay)
You could argue that videogames don’t really need stories. After all, the whole medium was built on abstraction mixed with semi-hallucinogenic non sequitur. Pac-Man needs to eat, but colorful ghosts are making his life difficult. Mario is trying to save the princess, but homicidal turtles are making his life difficult. Those Tetris blocks are trying to align themselves efficiently, but gravity is making their life difficult. And there are plenty of modern masterworks that imitate those earlier games’ minimalism: Indie platformers like Braid or Limbo, artsy cult hits like Ico or Dark Souls. These very different games share some

John Sayles’s ‘Amigo’ gets a new trailer and poster

It’s been a while since director John Sayles (Lone Star, Limbo, Matewan) released an all-out critical favorite, but maybe his new historical war drama Amigo will do the trick. Set in 1900-era Philippines, this relatively low-budget ($1.2 million) affair stars a host of great character actors like previous Sayles collaborator Chris Cooper and personal favorite Garrett Dillahunt. And, uh, DJ Qualls. The film first debuted on the festival circuit around a year ago, and begins its proper theatrical run this August. Below, you’ll find the new trailer:
