Watch: Game and Tyler The Creator in Lil Wayne-featured 'Martian vs. Goblin'

21 December 2011 1:23 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

If you missed Game's "The R.E.D." album release in August, that's Ok: the set's release date was bumped almost a dozen times. However, if you missed the rapper's collaboration with Tyler the Creator, here's another chance. The two play a couple of nutter-butter's locked up in the ugliest insane asylum this side of "Session 9," with the pair punting gibes back-and-forth through the glass. The Odd Future member dangles a cat and gives us his best crazy eye as he returns to his seemingly endless well of making fun of Bruno Mars and gay-baiting, this time linking homosexuals to Log Cabin »

Brad Anderson and Christian Bale Re-Teaming for Concrete Island

4 November 2011 11:07 AM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Brad Anderson is a good director, but he tends to do films that doesn’t get a whole lot of mainstream recognition. Which, honestly, is why he’s such a good director. I thought his “Vanishing on 7th Street” was pretty good. Not great, mind you, but a pretty darn thrilling yarn, but it didn’t really get the kind of wide theatrical release it probably deserved. But the movie he’s probably most known for is “Session 9″, a low-budget indie horror film from 2001 that was pretty damn good. He also directed “The Machinist”, starring Christian Bale, who famously got so skinny for the role that if you looked up “method acting” in the dictionary, you’d probably find a picture of Bale’s skeletal form from the movie under the definition. Eight years later, the duo is re-teaming on a film adaptation of J.G. Ballard’s survival novel »

Afm 2011: Brad Anderson Reunites with Christian Bale for a Trip to Concrete Island

3 November 2011 1:45 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Get ready to start your Afm morning coverage with a smile as we bring with us some very good news regarding the new flick from Brad Anderson, Concrete Island! Oh, and we even have some early sales art, too!

Filmax International, the company behind Sleep Tight and the [Rec] franchise, will be producing the film which reunites Anderson (Transsiberian, The Machinist, Session 9, The Vanishing on 7th Street) with The Machinist star Christian Bale on the adaptation of the best selling novel by J.G. Ballard.

Scott Kosar (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Crazies, Amityville Horror, The Machinist) will pen the screenplay that's described as "a twisted adaptation of Robinson Crusoe," where the story's protagonist, Robert Maitland, a wealthy architect, finds himself stranded in a manmade 'island' (a section of fenced-off wasteland in the middle of a motorway intersection) between the Westway and M4 Motorway in West London, forced to survive on »

We've learned that Filmax International, the company behind Sleep Tight and the [Rec] franchise, is will be producing Concrete Island. The big news is that Brad Anderson (Transsiberian, The Machinist, Session 9, The Vanishing on 7th Street) is set to reteam with The Machinist star Christian Bale on the adaptation of the best selling novel by J.G.

Chris Edwards to Direct Thriller 'Unsound'

1 November 2011 12:00 PM, PDT | bloody-disgusting.com | See recent Bloody-Disgusting.com news »

We've got an update for PalmStar Entertainment's long-gestured project that once had Brad Anderson (Transsiberian, The Machinist, Session 9, The Vanishing on 7th Street) attached to direct (we're told he still may produce). Chris Edwards is now attached to direct Unsound from a screenplay he co-wrote with Matthew Ross. Jonathan Shukat and Kevin Frakes also produce. The $10 million horror thriller features an "all in a never-before-seen original screenplay" and follows "A lonely, part-deaf, female deputy takes the first bold steps of her life by journeying through the underbelly of the Upper Midwest sex economy, on a personal quest to find a teenage sex-trafficking victim. Trusting a down-and-out ex pimp as her guide, she comes dangerously close to the edge, isolating everyone in her life, while uncovering a number of disquieting truths about herself, and the failed system she represents." »

Another Potential Brad Anderson Project Goes 'Unsound'

18 October 2011 10:30 AM, PDT | bloody-disgusting.com | See recent Bloody-Disgusting.com news »

It's sort of insane how little Brad Anderson (Transsiberian, The Machinist, Session 9) works, considering he's a genre favorite and delivers pretty damn good stuff (more recently The Vanishing on 7th Street). We learned this morning that Anderson could be getting behind the camera next year for Unsound, a $10 million indie project that's being kept under wraps. All that is know is that the horror thriller was penned by Matthew Ross and Chris Edwards and features an "all in a never-before-seen original screenplay." Jonathan Shukat and Kevin Frakes produce for PalmStar Entertainment. TAnderson is also attached to All Lost Souls, The Living and the Dead and Jack. »

31 Days of Horror: Session 9

7 October 2011 11:16 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

When the calendar page turns to October, we Rejects have only one thought: horror. To celebrate this grandest and darkest of months, we’ll cover one excellent horror film a day for the entirety of the month. That’s 31 Days of Horror and 31 Films perfect for viewing on a dark, chilly, October night. If you, like us, love horror and Halloween, give us a Hell Yeah and keep coming every day this month for a new dose of adrenaline. Synopsis: The phrase “insane asylum” doesn’t begin to describe Danvers State Hospital. The now-derelict institution is a massive ruin, shuttered in the ’80s due to federal budget cuts and its controversial practices. Gordon Fleming owns a HazMat removal business and aggressively bids on a contract to strip asbestos from the site, because he desperately needs the work. But is it just the money that’s drawing him to this project … or is he a man haunted? And »

Apollo 18 (2011)

3 September 2011 1:13 PM, PDT | Planet Fury | See recent Planet Fury news »

Directed by: Gonzalo Lopez-Gallego

Written by: Brian Miller

Cast: Lloyd Owen, Warren Christie, Ryan Robbins

The United States' Apollo 11 first touched down upon the surface of the moon on July 20, 1969. Several other journeys followed, with the last being Apollo 17 in December of 1972. What isn't common knowledge is that there was one last top secret mission to the lunar surface - at least according to the quite fictional world of Apollo 18.

The premise of Apollo 18 is that the Us government fired off (at least) one more trip to the moon for a very secret mission. This mission was long covered up and denied; however, some 80 minutes of footage were purportedly uploaded to WikiLeaks inspired 'LunarTruth.com', a website dedicated to shining the truth on this secret mission.

Just to be clear in case anyone is confused - it's all a bunch of malarkey, of course. Apollo 18 is »

Top 7 Creepy Rooms from Horror Movies

25 August 2011 10:24 AM, PDT | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

We start the Top 7. You finish the Top 10.

For those who know me, or even know of me really, it’s no secret that I’m a horror fan. There’s something to be said about turning off all the lights, no interruptions, and watching as chaos swallows the characters onscreen. Whether it’s the pounding of the door (like in 1963′s The Haunting) or a well-placed shriek (in the case of Hitchcock’s seminal classic, Psycho) there’s a lot more to horror than the blood and guts so many horror films shower themselves in these days.

Sometimes it’s as simple as the location. In celebration of the release of this week’s Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark, which involves a creepy basement, we’re gonna take a look at some of the mansions that put the scare in horror movies. Today, we take a look »

Top 7 Horror Movies I’d Kill to Remake

20 August 2011 9:53 AM, PDT | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

We start the Top 7. You finish the Top 10.

The remake of Fright Night hits the theaters this weekend, and a little bird told me it was pretty darned enjoyable - surprisingly so, for a remake. Actually, it was more along the lines of a tall, gangly bird with an air of dry snarkiness (I’m talking about Jeff Bayer) - tomato/tomahto. It got me thinkin’ about other remakes I’d love to see come bobbing to the surface of that cesspool of soulless plasicity we call Hollywood.

Two important points:

1. I can pick anything I want to remake even if it was released a few months ago (translation: good idea, sh*tty execution).

2. If I pick a movie that is still solid in its own right, I mean no disrespect to the original.

Onward!

7. One Missed Call (2008)

'Bachelor Pad': Linda Vista Hospital, Blake the Snake and Ames the romantic

15 August 2011 8:06 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

After the three-hour premiere, how will we ever get by with just two hours of "Bachelor Pad'? Turns out, this episode was chock full o' drama-y goodness.

Post-Elimination

Kasey preens that he's in control of the game - "If you don't choose a side, you're going to get canceled." That's ... not a phrase, Kase. Are you trying to make that phrase happen? Kasey also says it's going to be peace out for Jake. Man, I never thought anyone could make me want Jake to stick around and seem likable, but Kasey and Vienna are accomplishing that.

Competition

The guys go first - blindfolded, backs to the ladies, the girls one at a time are asked revealing questions. They answer the question by hitting the man with a paint-filled egg. If they hit the target, they get a point, if they miss, no points. The man and woman with the »

Are You Prepared for Grave Encounters?

3 August 2011 8:51 PM, PDT | CinemaSpy | See recent CinemaSpy news »

"They were searching for proof... They found it." Official artwork for Grave Encounters.

If you’ve seen Session 9, you know that indie horror movies about abandoned lunatic asylums can be pretty damn creepy. Today we got the trailer for Grave Encounters, another film in this sub-genre that could soon be doing the rounds. From what we’ve seen, it could be another screamer. You can judge for yourself by checking out the trailer below, courtesy of Tribeca Film.

Grave Encounters is about the crew of a paranormal investigation reality television show, à la Syfy’s Ghost Hunters, that decides to lock themselves inside the disused Collingwood Psychiatric Hospital for an episode of their show. Guess what? It’s proves to be no Comfort Inn. As they go about filming their investigation of the unexplained phenomena that have been reported there over the years they find that the building seems »

DVD Playhouse June 2011

By

Allen Gardner

Kiss Me Deadly (Criterion) Robert Aldrich’s 1955 reinvention of the film noir detective story is one of cinema’s great genre mash-ups: part hardboiled noir; part cold war paranoid thriller; and part science- fiction. Ralph Meeker plays Mickey Spillane’s fascist detective Mike Hammer as a narcissistic simian thug, a sadist who would rather smash a suspect’s fingers than make love to the bevvy of beautiful dames that cross his path. In fact, the only time you see a smile cross Meeker’s sneering mug is when he’s doling out pain, with a vengeance. When a terrified young woman (Cloris Leachman, film debut) literally crossed Hammer’s path one night, and later turns up dead, he vows to get to the bottom of her brutal demise. One of the most influential films ever made, and perhaps the most-cited film by the architects »

Great Years in Film: 2001

4 June 2011 9:26 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

It was the year that many critics dubbed the worst in recent memory. With a toxic summer movie season that gave us disappointing dreck like Pearl Harbor and The Mummy Returns, and a dismal couple of autumn weeks where theatres were inundated with a staggering level of mediocrity (forgettable titles like Bandits, K-Pax, and Thirteen Ghosts to name a few), the year was looking unsalvageable.

But once awards season came, the cinemas were suddenly flooded with prestige films that were actually worthy of their plaudits. Michael Mann’s Ali–an impressionistic deconstruction of the legendary boxer, not just a by the numbers biopic–turned out to be one of the most visceral Civil Rights films ever made. The Coen Brothers fatalistic noir, The Man Who Wasn’t There, brought new Hollywood irony to old Hollywood gloss. Veteran auteurs like Robert Altman and Ridley Scott came out with some of their strongest material in years. »

Vanishing on 7th Street: Movie Review

2 June 2011 10:18 PM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

Review by Michael Pickle, MoreHorror.com

Last month's DVD release of Vanishing on 7th Street was eagerly anticipated by myself and many other horror enthusiasts. The main reason being Director Brad Anderson. Not only did he create the mini-movie Sounds Like for Showtime's Masters of Horror (one of the more entertaining entries in the series) He wrote and directed the instant horror classic Session 9: One of the finest and genuinely creepy psychological horror films in the last 20 years. Films like Session 9 tend to set the standards of horror fans pretty high. It's this high standard that renders Vanishing on 7th Street ultimately disappointing both as a horror film and a psychological head scratcher.

Vanishing on 7th Street is set in Detroit, Michigan and opens with a mysterious, widespread power outage in which almost everyone disappears into thin air leaving the sprawling metropolis virtually empty. We begin following »

Blu-Ray Review: ‘Vanishing on 7th Street’ Likely to Disappear Into Horror History

19 May 2011 11:51 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Horror writers and directors have been afraid of the dark since the start of the genre. Sadly, that fear of blackness has never translated to film as successfully as one would hope. There’s an inherent problem in watching a movie about darkness in that it can never make that fear fully real unless it goes to complete black screen. The latest entry in this flawed subgenre is Brad Anderson’s “Vanishing on 7th Street,” a minor work from a major director.

Blu-Ray Rating: 2.5/5.0

I adore Brad Anderson. “Session 9,” “The Machinist,” “Transsiberian,” his great TV work (including “Fringe,” “Boardwalk Empire,” “Treme,” “The Wire,” “The Shield,” and one of the best episodes of “Masters of Horror) — the man would make my list of the most underrated directors alive. I had heard enough negative press on “Vanishing on 7th Street” that I dreaded it a bit. We don’t like »

Tribeca Film Festival 2011

30 April 2011 4:56 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Updated through 4/30.

"At first it was about neighborhood," begins Eric Hynes in the Voice. "Then it was about stars, parties, and supersizing. But finally, for its 10th incarnation, the Tribeca Film Festival (April 20-May 1) seems to be about movies. Gone are the superfluous, attention-sucking Hollywood premieres (Tom Cruise on a Jet Ski, anyone?), and few are the big-name, low-quality vanity projects. Several years into a vital slimming of the slate — the fest topped out at 176 films in 2005; this year, it's a manageable 93 — Tff remains New York's largest film survey."

To celebrate Tribeca's 10th, we're running a retrospective of some of the best films the festival's shown over the past decade here at Mubi. Happy viewing.

"A notoriously uneven assemblage of titles, Tribeca aspires toward something like a mini Toronto, but despite, in recent years, bringing such important films as Jia Zhangke's Still Life and Mohammad Rasoulof's The White Meadows »
