Google Engineers Collaborate to Produce Pearry Teo's Dead Inside

Yes, our lives revolve around Google. It's gone from Yahoo!'s chumpy little brother, to the biggest website in the world. It's so big that Google somehow went from a noun to a verb! The people behind this kind of success have got to have their heads on straight. Let's hope the eight Google engineers who joined forces to produce the upcoming horror film Dead Inside were some of the good Google workers, not the ones who just hang around by the candy machine and try to say something that sounds smart.

Written by Jennifer Zhang and directed by Pearry Teo, Dead Inside is a creepy film set at a party where bad things begin to happen after one character has a premonition of another's death. Zhang is also featured in the film along with stars Lala Hensley, Matthew Mercer, Rayne Bidder, James Adam Lim, Tara Strand and Sage Howard.

First image from Pearry Teo’s ‘Witchville’

I’ve been a fan of director Pearry Reginald Teo ever since I saw his first feature film The Gene Generation in 2007, he followed that up with last years Necromentia - a dark and twisted horror flick that recalls the best of Clive Barker’s Hellraiser, that in my opinion even out does Barker (for my review of that film, click here).

Back in September I managed to track down Teo for an interview on the set of his next film Witchville, which was shooting in China. At the time Teo revealed that the film was a fantasy/medieval film starring Luke Goss (Blade 2, Hellboy 2), Ed Speelers (Eragon), Andrew Pleavin (300, Blood: The Last Vampire), Myanna Buring (The Descent, Doomsday) and Sarah Douglas (Superman 1, 2), well now thanks to Teo and the Luke Goss forum we have the official synopsis and the first image from the film which is due to air

We've known our friend Pearry (Necromentia, The Gene Generation, and the upcoming Dark Oz) was working on a new film for a while, and while he's not allowed to give us specifics, he gave us the go ahead to speculate based on the details he's publicly leaked which are as follows:

1. The film is for NBC/Universal

Necromentia: A Movie Review

Director: Pearry Reginald Teo.

Writer: Stephanie Joyce.

A love story set in the backdrop of hell "Necromentia" is an unreleased horror feature that offers three intertwined stories in a non-linear story-telling fashion. Centering around the characters Morbius, Hagen, and Travis each character interacts with the others while searching for love despite the pain of betrayal and the hopelessness of recovery from dementia. From the puzzling script of Stephanie Joyce (April's Last) and the creative direction of Pearry Theo (The Gene Generation) "Necromentia" is a horrifying glimpse at death magic and the underworld.

Beginning with Hagen (Santiago Craig) believing his girlfriend will return to him despite the difficulties of death the picture quickly introduces the charismatic Travis (Chad Grimes) who is searching for a reconnection with his lost brother Tommy. Using black magic and trickery Hagen is sent to the underworld as a "guinea pig" to return with the soul of

The twisted history of the lost scifi film Siphon

Back in 2005, Variety trumpeted the coming of Siphon, a hot new science fiction script from writer Paul Sloan, who's latest project, the post-apocalyptic Tribes of October, has been getting quite a lot of attention recently. Described as being "The Silence of the Lambs meets Blade Runner," Siphon's story of an obsessed female detective on the path of a serial killer who may not be human, was to be sprawling, dark and deeply dystopian so, of course, many of us rejoiced the notion of its coming.

Swedish video and commercials director, Traktor, even came attached to the project. It had a director, money behind it and a crap load of amazing concept art that was impressing everyone with its unique vision. Then, everything halted. A hefty 50 million dollar price-tag was causing great anxiety to a studio system that was still afraid of dark science fiction. I mean, Blade Runner was great 'an all,

Benny Hell waxes poetic on William Gibson and the joys of Lsd

  • Fangoria
Recently I’ve noticed the term ‘Cyberpunk’ thrown around a lot. Many bands call themselves and their sound Cyberpunk, and it has rapidly become a genre unto itself. Originating with the 1983 story of the same name by Phillip K. Dick Award-winning author Bruce Bethke, Cyberpunk is a cultural evolution that has come about as a result of the fusion between man and technology. The sound of Cyberpunk is largely rooted in a marriage of visceral instruments, such as guitars and live drums, bound with electronic programming. It also embodies an entire philosophical ideology that is strangely akin to the Punk movement from which it takes a lot of it’s styling. Mass-media, pop-psychology, and the mainstream approach to life are rejected in favor of an existence based in the reality of your own choosing, conception, and creation. A number of media events are tapping into this life-style, illustrating the validity of the concept.
