Review: Barricade

21 September 2012 8:10 PM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

You can’t blame people today for wanting to get away from it all. Sometimes nothing sounds more appealing than retreating to a remote cabin in the mountains for some rest and relaxation. Shut off the phones and other electronic devices, or just leave them at home. However, it you are going to do this, have a contingency plan for emergency purposes. You never know when a blizzard could keep you stuck in cabin, completely cut off from the outside world. 

In Fido director Andrew Currie and WWE Studios' Barricade, Terrence Shade (Eric McCormack) has decided to get out of the city and take his two kids to a remote cabin (which is really a very large house even though people continuously refer to it as a cabin). 

A year prior Terrence and young Cynthia (Conner Dwelly) and Jake (Ryan Grantham) lost their wife/mother. She desperately wanted to have »

Barricade Out on DVD and Blu-ray September 25th

21 September 2012 2:19 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

A father’s quiet retreat to the woods with his two children turns into a fight for survival in Barricade. From the director of the zombie comedy Fido comes this scary-looking PG-13 horror film.

There is an interesting free app the makers of Barricade are using to market this film. It allows you to play with Augmented Reality technology.

Here’s a video showing how to trigger Augmented Reality for WWE’s  Barricade:

For seasoned actor Eric McCormack, the role of Terrance Shade was one of the most challenging of his career. Appearing in virtually every scene, it was both a physically and emotionally demanding role for McCormack. As a busy psychiatrist, Terrance is struggling to adjust to life as a widowed father whose main concern is the safety and well-being of his young children. The children, as well, must come to grips with having lost their principal caretaker, »

A holiday in the mountains is an opportunity for the Shade family to accept their tragic loss and start anew. Little do they know they’ll all be tested in unimaginable ways. »

Poster For WWE Produced Survival-Thriller ‘Barricade’

30 August 2012 9:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The number of decent feature films that have come from the WWE studios, you can pretty much count on one hand or make that one finger. However could their latest, Barricade, lead to us putting two fingers up (make of that what you will)? But if this latest poster is anything to go by then things do not bode well, with imaginative design spoiled by more than a touch of ropey ‘photoshopping’. Former gay icon of sitcom Will & Grace, Eric McCormack, headlines as a husband and father who takes his family to a cosy cabin retreat in the woods. It isn’t long before they’re fighting for their survival against unknown forces.

Barricade marks the first feature WWE has been involving with, that doesn’t feature one of their brainless brawlers. Which is a good thing in itself. The film will hit Us cinemas next month, whether it will »
