*full disclosure: an online screener of this film was provided by an anonymous source. Direct: Jared Cohn. Writer: Paul Logan. Cast: Paul Logan, Bill Moseley, Vernon Wells and Costas Mandylor. From the director of Bikini Spring Break (2012) and Hulk Blood Tapes (2015) comes Jared Cohn's The Horde. The screenplay, via first time scriptwriter Paul Logan, is steeped in action and horror elements. Set for a coming-soon release through Video-on-demand, The Horde is a blend of other cannibals films, from the past. The film is also heavily focused on martial arts action elements. Meanwhile, one's gag reflex might be provoked by all of the limb and tongue cutting. The Horde is one horrifying camping and photography adventure gone very awry. The Horde is reminiscent of a number of other films. This film viewer was most reminded of The Hills Have Eyes II (2007) as the military confronts a family of inbreeding cannibals. »

Jessica Stroup (Ted, The Hills Have Eyes 2) has been cast as Joy Meachum in the upcoming Iron Fist series. Tom Pelphrey (Banshee) will be playing her brother Ward. This is a slight alteration from the comic, in which Ward was Joy’s uncle (but I’m sure Marvel will have all that figured out by the time filming starts).
Will Iron Fist fans be bothered by the change up in character roles (Ward Meachum)? Will Marvel's Iron Fist stay true to its mystical roots and bring magic into the mostly “grounded” Marvel Television?
What do you think? Let us know.

Joining Finn Jones as Danny Rand, Jessica Henwick as Colleen Wing and David Wenham as Harold Meachum in Iron Fist will be Jessica Stroup (90210, The Following, The Hills Have Eyes 2) and Tom Pelphrey (Banshee, Homefront, Blue Bloods) as Danny's childhood acquaintances, Joy and Ward Meachum. In the comics, Joy believes Iron Fist murdered her father and teams up with her Uncle Ward to take him down. The duo will be siblings in the TV series, however. Here is how they'll factor into the story: The children of Harold Meachum (Wenham), Joy and Ward have spent their lives building Rand Enterprises to its current standing in the world, only to have all their work put in jeopardy when Danny returns to claim his birthright. They are childhood acquaintances of Danny Rand’s who now play an important role in Rand Enterprises. Iron Fist is set to commence production very soon. »
