Mayhem 2014: ‘Predestination’ Review

4 November 2014 7:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Ethan Hawke, Noah Taylor, Sarah Snook, Elise Jansen, Christopher Kirby, Madeleine West, Cate Wolfe, Jim Knobeloch, Freya Stafford, Lucinda Armstrong Hall, Rob Jenkins, Christopher Stollery | Written by Michael Spierig, Peter Spierig | Directed by The Spierig Brothers

Back in 2003, the Spierig Brothers directed a low budget farmhouse zombie horror called Undead. It was an entertaining and imaginative debut, and everyone looked forward to their next offering. It turned out we had to wait a while. In 2009, they released Daybreakers. Another imaginative genre offering, with an entertaining cast and some neat ideas. What would their next movie be?

After another long wait, we arrive in 2014 with Predestination.

Shown as the opening film for day four of the festival, Predestination is a difficult film to talk about without totally ruining it. So I’ll give you this much: after a tense opening sequence which introduces us to the film’s antagonist the »

Busan Film Review: ‘Wyrmwood’

5 October 2014 5:21 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The idea that a human could become a kind of “zombie whisperer” is one of the bright new touches that “Wyrmwood” brings to the familiar scenario of survivors attempting to stay alive during an apocalyptic rampage by the undead. Armed with “Mad Max”-like design elements and a good sense of humor, this energetically executed bloodbath marks a promising feature bow for Australian brothers Kiah and Tristan Roache-Turner. Destined for a long ride on the genre fest circuit and sure to make a big impression in the homevid and on-demand arenas, “Wyrmwood” also has the chops to score theatrically in Oz with the right kind of marketing. Domestic release details are yet to be announced.

The latest in a growing list of Aussie siblings to emerge with nifty little horror-movie debuts (following Michael and Peter Spierig with “Undead” in 2003, and Colin and Cameron Cairnes with “100 Bloody Acres” in 2012), the Roache-Turners »

The Spierig Brothers Set to Rewrite and Direct Hammer Films' Winchester

24 July 2014 3:09 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

It's hard to believe it was way back in April 2012 when we first got word that Hammer would be filming a new movie onsite in the Winchester Mystery House, but the project is now back on track with a new writing/directing team we're all quite familiar with.

From the Press Release:

Filmmaking brothers Michael and Peter Spierig have been tapped to rewrite and direct Hammer Films’ Winchester, a supernatural thriller based on the world famous Winchester Mystery House in San Jose.

The filmmakers are rewriting a script originally penned by Tom Vaughan that tells the story of Sarah Winchester, heir to the Winchester firearms fortune. Hammer is eyeing an early 2015 start date.

After the sudden deaths of her husband and child, Sarah Winchester came to believe she was cursed by the rifle's victims and the lethal legacy of the "gun that won the West." At the instruction of a spiritualist medium, »

First Trailer: The Spierig's "Predestination"

21 July 2014 8:20 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Following strong notices for their breakout zombie film "Undead" in 2003, Australian genre filmmakers Michael and Peter Spierig teamed with Ethan Hawke and Sam Neill for the vampire action flick "Daybreakers" back in 2009. Five years on, they're back for their third feature "Predestination" which also stars Hawke along with Noah Taylor and Sarah Snook.

Dropping horror in favor of complicated sci-fi, this might be their best effort yet. Based on "Starship Troopers" author Robert A. Heinlein’s 1960 short story "All You Zombies," the action follows a Temporal Agent who must pursue a criminal that has eluded him throughout time and at the same time ensure his own survival.

Actress Sarah Snook has scored a strong reputation here in Australia for her work on the TV series "Spirited" and films like "Not Suitable for Children". Here she takes on what appears to be a meaty role where half the time they've adjusted »

Krause, Armstrong focus on genre films

6 January 2014 2:05 PM, PST | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

Shane Krause has a refreshingly candid view of the commercial prospects of The Contents, a self-funded supernatural thriller which marks his directing debut.

.If the film turns out to be any good we will get interest. from distributors and sales agents, says Krause, who co-wrote and produced the film with his regular collaborator Shayne Armstrong.

.If it doesn.t it will die the death it deserves to. The amount of money at risk is pitifully small. If it doesn.t work no one gets hurt..

The cast and a small crew worked irregularly on the film for the past six months shooting on locations in Brisbane. It.s 80% completed; still to come are the visual effects elements created by Steve Boyle whose credits include The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Bait 3D, Daybreakers and who.s just worked on Chris Sun.s low budget horror film Charlie.s Farm.
