Shauna Macdonald Interview
Shauna Macdonald is no stranger to the horror circuit, though best known for her part of Sarah in The Descent she has over the years starred in several films within the genre. Her latest venture into the the chilling category is Nails. Directed by Dennis Bartok, Macdonald plays Dana, a track coach who finds herself bedridden in hospital after a nasty car crash. When she awakens she discovers that, although she is alive, her injuries are exceptionally nasty – she can’t walk, and thanks to a tracheotomy, cannot speak for herself either. Her road to recovery will be a long one. Just when things couldn’t get any worse, Dana finds herself tormented by a malevolent being known simply as Nails. Desperate and unable to convince anyone that Nails is real, Dana has the fight of her life to escape his clutches.

The Hellboy reboot, only recently announced, is moving forward at a pace that's probably faster than anyone expected, which is awesome news. According to TheWrap, principal photography for the reboot is planned for this September. Actor David Harbour provided some interesting insights in their interview, who credits his performance in Netflix's Stranger Things as the reason he was cast as Hellboy:
"It’s good. It’s a whole new thing. I’d always been a fan of the comics and there’s a darker tone to it and I think in the climate we have now there's kind of a darker...a desire for more of that...the script is good, and this guy Neil Marshall is directing who's really good, and the aesthetic is great."Related - Hellboy: Rise Of The Blood Queen Promotional Art Appears At Cannes!

A killer book (Dog Soldiers) must hide behind a Credence Clearwater tune. Karel Reisz’s killer movie about the moral residue of Vietnam scores as both drama and action, as disillusioned counterculture smugglers versus corrupt narcotics cops. Just don’t expect it to really have much to say about the Vietnam experience. But hey, the cast is tops — Nick Nolte, Richard Masur, Anthony Zerbe — and the marvelous Tuesday Weld is even better as a pill-soaked involuntary initiate into the pre- War On Drugs smuggling scene.

Fledgling UK production outfit BB88 is in Cannes to talk up a slate of movies including revenge drama drama Bharal, which is due to star former Frasier star Kelsey Grammer and parkour pioneer Sebastian Foucan.
Jake L Reid’s (The Antwerp Dolls) feature, due to start in early 2018, charts the story of an African refugee who arrives in London to search for his missing sister.
When he uncovers an immigrant sex trade he becomes both a media sensation and a target for a crime syndicate, along with the immigrant community that has taken him in.
Bharal is being lined up as a co-production between BB88, Reid’s Liberal Region Productions and Compos Mentis productions.

Next Monday sees the home entertainment release of Underworld Blood Wars, the fifth film in the ever-evolving franchise which has taken over $500million at the box office and spawned a number of multimedia spin offs. Our review of Blood Wars called it ‘the best in the series’ and there are plans for another film, with series figurehead Kate Beckinsale back as Selene. Underworld as a franchise has never been in better shape.
The turn of the century presented a number of challenges for movie studios. In the subsequent seventeen years we have seen many movie genres and their various tropes reborn for the twenty-first century. The Zombie movie has picked up the pace with 28 Days Later, Shaun of the Dead, Zombieland and the TV series Dead Set and The Walking Dead. Likewise the Vampire and Werewolves had a new day in the sun thanks to 30 Days of Night, »

Last week it was announced that Hellboy is set to receive an R-rated reboot, with Neil Marshall (Dog Soldiers, The Descent) directing and Stranger Things star David Harbour taking on the lead role.

There’s been a lot of Hellboy news this week. Let’s quickly recap. Neil Marshall, the director of Dog Soldiers, The Descent and Centurion, is attached to direct Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen, a reboot of the Hellboy saga that’s set to star David Harbour (“Stranger Things”) as the title character. Guillermo del Toro and Ron Perlman […] »

Yesterday, Hellboy creator Mike Mignola set the internet ablaze (ahem) with his announcement that the Hellboy movie franchise was getting an R-rated reboot. In addition, it was revealed that Ron Perlman wouldn’t be returning to the role, instead being replaced by Stranger Things actor David Harbour, while Neil Marshall (Dog Soldiers, The Descent) is directing. This begs the question: what will an R-rated Hellboy movie look like?
One of the reboot’s screenwriters, Andrew Cosby, just sat down with Silver Screen Beat to talk a little about the tone that this new reboot will take:
“I can’t really talk about specifics with regard to the story, which they’re keeping a pretty tight lid on at the moment, but I can say that this is a darker, more gruesome version of Hellboy. Neil said from the very beginning that he wanted to walk a razor’s edge between horror and comic book movie, »

According to the Hollywood Reporter, director Neil Marshall, best known for his work on Dog Soldiers, The Descent and Game of Thrones, has been lined up to direct the film, which has the working title of Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen. Neither Guillermo Del Toro, who directed two previous instalments of the franchise, nor Ron Perlman, who starred in the films, are involved in the new version.

For many years now, we’ve wanted Guillermo Del Toro and Ron Perlman to team up one more time for Hellboy 3, but we got in February that the movie was officially dead. Word was that Del Toro, Perlman, and Hellboy creator Mike Mignola couldn’t come to terms creatively, the project was shelved, and there was no more adventures for the hell powered comic book hero in our future. Or so we thought. Early this morning , Mignola took to Facebook to announce that a new Hellboy movie is happening, the catch being that it was a R-rated reboot and not the long awaited sequel, with The Descent and Dog Soldiers’ Neil Marshall (he is also responsible for the Blackwater and Watchers on the Wall episodes of Game of Thrones) on board as director and Stranger Things’ David Harbour as the red skinned, cigar chomping hero. The Hollywood Reporter has more information on the project, »

In news that is sure to surprise fans of Guillermo del Toro and Ron Perlman's Hellboy movies (especially following del Toro's announcement back in February that a third Hellboy movie would not be moving forward with him at the helm), it's been revealed that a Hellboy reboot is in the works with Neil Marshall potentially directing and David Harbour in talks to star.
Neil Marshall (Game of Thrones, Dog Soldiers, The Descent, Doomsday) is in discussions to direct and David Harbour (Stranger Things, Suicide Squad) is in talks to play Hellboy, the character brought to life by Ron Perlman in 2004's Hellboy and 2008's Hellboy II: The Golden Army—both of which were directed by del Toro.

This week sees the release of British action sequel We Still Steal The Old Way on digital download, with DVD and Blu-ray following on 17th April. The film is a follow-up to the 2014 crime drama We Still Kill The Old Way and sees the return of the old-school Archer gang, led by the charismatic Richie Archer, who this time hatches a plan to pull off an audacious robbery. Halfway through the heist, the gang get caught, and they’re sent down. So far, so good – now they’re in prison they can put into motion their plot to spring fellow inmate George, who desperately needs to get out before his wife dies. Trouble arises when Richie’s arch enemy Vic Farrow gets himself transferred into the prison, wanting to settle some old scores.
We caught up with the film’s producer Jonathan Sothcott to talk about his new film, reuniting the cast, »

Horror movie monsters don’t get much goofier than the Sasquatch. Sure, Bigfoot is a legitimate part of American folk legend/mythology, but The Missing Link doesn’t exactly inspire fear or terror, no matter how good the ape suit is. Some brave directors have tried, mind – most notably Eduardo Sanchez, with his found footage feature Exists – but we’re a long way off from a definitive, and good Bigfoot feature.
Latest – of a very small queue – to step up to the bat is John Portanova, with his mostly serious Hunting Grounds (or Valley of the Sasquatch to go by its sillier but better title, by which is is known on UK DVD too). In it, we follow a grieving father and son duo (plus cannon-fodder brother-in-law »
