Ejecta DVD Review

23 January 2015 3:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Chad Archibald

Cast: Julian Richings, Lisa Houle, Adam Seybold, Mark Gibson, Justin Darmanin and Ry Barrett.

Certificate: 15

Running Time: 87 Minutes

With worldwide movie audiences currently tackling the issues of Back To The Future 2’s disappointingly inaccurate 2015 predictions and The Interview’s disastrous theatrical run…it seems that this year may hold few cinematic surprises in the grand scheme of things. After all, in a world overloaded with productions of every genre, this would lead many to predict that an alien-related narrative would be the last to offer anything remotely in the way of originality. However, despite the fact that some viewers may assume they have had their fair share of extra-terrestrial outings on the big and small screen, Ejecta offers genuinely intriguing material, as well as some exciting performances from some criminally unknown actors.

From the very beginning of Ejecta, it is clear that the film has taken strong »

7 Beloved Movies You Didn't Know Debuted At Sundance

23 January 2015 12:49 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah has always been a place for independent spirit, unique storytelling and movies that challenge the so-called "rules" of film making.

Often, this translates to weird, unmarketable character studies that either never see the light of day or are shoved off onto VOD platforms without so much as a single advertisement. But this isn't always the case. In fact, some of the most beloved, iconic films of the last 20 years got their start in the many hallowed screens scattered across the small snow-covered city.

News: 9 Sundance 2015 Films We Are Dying to See

Here are seven hugely popular films that you'd never guess came out of the Sundance Film Festival.

Reservoir DogsQuentin Tarantino's debut feature – about the aftermath of a botched diamond heist and the paranoia that grows between the culprits when it's revealed that one of them is secretly a cop – premiered at Sundance in 1992, where it quickly »

Horror at Sundance: From 'Braindead' to 'The Babadook'

21 January 2015 7:15 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Sundance may be better known for its serious indie dramas than its bloodsoaked genre fare, but a surprising number of well-known horror films got their start at the annual festival - and we've rounded up a few of the most notable highlights from years past. While the list is far from exhaustive - notable omissions include 2003's "Open Water" and 2005's "Hardy Candy" - it's nevertheless representative of the fest's commitment to spotlighting left-of-center visions, from shockingly smart limb-spewers (Peter Jackson's "Braindead") to verite-style spookfests ("The Blair Witch Project") to body-horror provocations ("Teeth"). Included are discussions of how each film performed with mainstream audiences, whose tastes don't always align with the Park City hype machine. The 2015 Sundance Film Festival runs from Jan. 22-Feb.1. »

Watch: Yet Another Chilling International Trailer for 'It Follows,' Headed for Sundance

21 January 2015 8:35 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

David Robert Mitchell's teen horror tale "It Follows"—about a malevolent, sexually transmitted spirit—will finally open day-and-date on March 13 2015 via RADiUS-twc, which smartly snapped up the film following its Cannes premiere and has ushered the hit along the fest circuit since, from Tiff to Fantastic Fest. Sundance-goers can catch the film in January, where "It Follows" will join the tradition of "The Babadook" and "The Blair Witch Project" as a Midnight entry. Every terrifying ounce of this film is, no question, worth the hype—including the moody electronic score by Disasterpeace. Watch the new international trailer below, and check out our interview with Mitchell here. »

Third "Blair Witch" May Actually Happen

18 January 2015 11:31 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Back in 1999, the first "The Blair Witch Project" was a true phenomenon - amassing a $250 million worldwide gross from a budget of just $60,000. A year later Hollywood attempted a sequel with a proper budget. The $15 million-budgeted 'Book of Shadows' opened to awful reviews and ultimately grossed just $47 million.

Both of the film's directors Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sanchez have gone on solo career paths to shoot assorted indie horror films that have often gone direct to video. Sanchez has been getting some traction for his sasquatch feature "Exists" lately, and talking about that film with Dread Central he was also asked about a potential third "Blair Witch". He says:

“We have been talking to Lionsgate and there has been a little bit of movement but nothing is concrete. The film seems inevitable to me, but really it’s just a matter of it being the right time. I’m thinking »

'Blair Witch Project 3' Is Inevitable Says Co-Director

16 January 2015 11:27 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

For fans who have been waiting impatiently for another follow-up to The Blair Witch Project, there may be some light at the end of the tunnel. Eduardo S&#225nchez, who co-directed the original 1999 horror blockbuster with Daniel Myrick, revealed in an interview with Dread Central that they have both been discussing The Blair Witch Project 3 with Lionsgate, with hopes that they may start production within the next few years.

"We have been talking to Lionsgate and there has been a little bit of movement but nothing is concrete. The film seems inevitable to me, but really it's just a matter of it being the right time. I'm thinking it's going to happen sooner than later at this point, but I always say that. There's always rumblings and certain ideas being pushed around and such. While I don't have anything firm to talk about now, it wouldn't surprise me if »

Blair Witch 3 edging closer

14 January 2015 10:44 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Blair Witch Project 3 looks like it's edging forward. At least according to its co-director...

One that we perhaps should have included on our piece looking at sequels stuck in development hell is the long-mooted Blair Witch 3. The plan with this one was that Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sanchez, the duo behind the original The Blair Witch Project, would return to try and right some of the many wrongs of Blair Witch 2: Book Of Shadows (see: sequels that damaged the ending of the previous film).

So: where is the film? Still coming, as it happens.

Eduardo Sanchez has revealed to Dread Central that "we have been talking to Lionsgate and there has been a little bit of movement but nothing is concrete".

He added that "the film seems inevitable to me, but really it’s just a matter of it being the right time. I’m thinking it »

Interview: Director Justin Timpane talks ‘Ninjas vs. Monsters’

14 January 2015 8:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

The wise-cracking ass-kicking small town ninjas of Ninjas vs Vampires are back with the action-packed horror film Ninjas vs Monsters; and this time the ninjas take on an army of traditional horror movie fiends in order to save mankind…

Dracula has called upon Frankenstein’s monster, The Mummy, Werewolf, and a coven of Witches to wipe out the Ninjas, but our pizza-loving heroes – tougher and wiser after their battles in the 2011 film Ninjas Vs Vampires – now have their own supernatural powers as well as awesome kung fu skills to counter the threat. What follows is non-stop combat with plenty of laughs and gore along the way in director Justin Timpane’s latest horror adventure, which is Executive Produced by Eduardo Sanchez (director of The Blair Witch Project, Lovely Molly and Exists).

With Ninjas vs Monsters set for a UK release on January 26th and a Us debut on February 3rd, »

Preservation Brings the Human-Hunting Genre Into the Modern World

6 January 2015 9:00 PM, PST | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

Christopher Denham's Preservation is a violent yet agreeably goofy throwback to the survival-in-the-woods genre, with shades of Southern Comfort, Deliverance, and even The Blair Witch Project (though it's not found-footage, thank goodness). Heading into a closed nature preserve for a weekend of shooting at four-legged animals are recent war veteran Sean (Pablo Schreiber), his brother Mike (Mad Men's Aaron Staton, continuing to have awful luck on camping trips), and Mike's wife, Wit (Wrenn Schmidt), a vegan anesthesiologist who doesn't care for killing, nor how Pablo brings out Mike's latent nozzlehood. They wake to find their stuff is gone, X's marked on their foreheads, and that they're being hunted by an indeterminate number of bad »
