Muschiettis to Produce Supernatural Thriller ‘Shadows’ (Exclusive)

30 October 2015 4:26 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Siblings Andy and Barbara Muschietti, director and producer of “Mama,” a U.S. chart-toper in 2013, brothers will produce the next project of Alex and David Pastor, supernatural thriller “In Shadows.” Spanish writers-directors, the Pastors, also siblings, have carve out a name on the international genre scene, with “The Last Days” and “Carriers.”

EOne is in advanced talks with the Muschiettis to board “Shadows.” A Spanish commercial broadcaster is also studying the project for possible co-production.

“‘Shadows’ is a twisted coming-of-age story, a dark tale where supernatural horror is a manifestation of the most mundane horror the characters face in their daily lives. Unfolding along two different timelines, the movie explores how the horrors of the past can haunt us all our lives and define us as adults,” David Pastor explained to Variety.

The Pastors’ new title turns on Jason, a man who comes out of prison after serving 20 years for an unspeakable crime, »

Film Review: ‘Self/less’

4 July 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A brand new you that just might be the old someone else is the quandary at the center of “Self/less,” an initially intriguing parable about man’s lust for immortality that quickly devolves into a substandard shoot-’em-up designed to rebrand star Ryan Reynolds as a brawny action hero in the Jason Statham mold. But even the resourceful, likable Reynolds is at a loss to elevate this rather dreary piece of would-be escapism, which calls out for the wry, pulpy touch of a John Carpenter (or his acolyte David Twohy) and instead gets the strained self-seriousness of director Tarsem Singh. July 10 release from Universal/Focus’ relaunched genre label Gramercy Pictures will have its work cut out for it against the big guns of summer.

Written by Spanish brothers Alex and David Pastor (whose little-seen 2009 “Carriers” was one of the better zombie/virus thrillers of recent vintage), “Self/less” cribs »

Watch: First Trailer for Ryan Reynolds’ ‘Self/Less’

4 March 2015 4:20 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Focus Features has released the first trailer for Ryan Reynolds’ sci-fi thriller “Self/Less,” five months ahead of its July 31 opening.

The film is about a terminally ill billionaire, played by Ben Kingsley, who buys a chance for eternal life through an experimental underground medical procedure that transfers his consciousness into the cadaver of a younger man, played by Reynolds.

Things go well at first as Kingsley’s character inhabits the new body but problems quickly arise.

“Immortality has some side effects,” warns Matthew Goode’s character.

The film is directed by Tarsem Singh from a screenplay by Alex Pastor and David Pastor (“Carriers”).

Viral Promo For New Ryan Reynolds Sci-Fi Movie Self/Less

4 March 2015 12:37 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Focus Features’ original plan was to release Self/Less in September of last year but, at some point, the decision was made to punt it back to Summer 2015. We’ll now be seeing it on July 31st.

The film has been directed by Tarsem Singh, the stylist behind Rem’s Losing My Religion, cult-movie The Fall and J-Lo embarrassment The Cell. He’s only ever as good as his scripts, and sometimes not quite, but Self/Less at least has the benefit of a screenplay by David and Alex Pastor.

The Pastors wrote Carriers and The Last Days, both of which were low-key but smarter than average genre films. I’m certainly alway interested when I see their name on a film.

And the stars of Self/Less are Ryan Reynolds and Ben Kingsley, the latter playing a billionaire who wants his consciousness transferred into the body of the former. »

Out Of The Dark (2014) – The Review

26 February 2015 7:09 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

It’s been some time since I’ve had that feeling of being “had,” going into something with hopeful expectations, only to find out that it was all a ruse. Cinema is often like this, drawing us in, capturing our emotions and interests, even playing off our primal instincts. Michael Bay knows the mass loves explosions, so there are always plenty in his films, all of which appear int he films’ trailers. Trailers are another way that we, as viewers, can be duped. It’s a necessary evil, I suppose. The nature of the marketing beast that, inevitably, will always accompany the anticipation involved with being a movie watcher. This has become something of a cultural agreement of modern society. We tolerate in order to be entertained.

I find it “crazy” how individuals associated with one film, generally applauded for being a success, can turn around and be equally associated with a flop, »

Out Of The Dark: An Atmospheric but Predictable Horror Film [Review]

21 February 2015 10:58 AM, PST | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

Q: When is a J-horror not a J-horror?

A: When it’s written and directed by a spanish team including David and Alex Pastor  of    Carriers and The Last Days fame and Javier Gullon, the writer of Enemy.

I don’t have a problem with mainstream horror movies as such. Of course, as with most of the people who frequent this site, I find that my tastes are satisfied by the films that exist a little more towards the fringe, but on the whole I find that even the most formulaic of horrors can provide some thrills and chills.

I say this because Out of the Dark is one of the most derivative and predictable horror films I’ve seen in a long time. Surprisingly (and perhaps the only surprising thing about this film othe [Continued ...] »
