The Nastiest Movie Moments of 2017

Ben Robins on the nastiest movie moments of 2017…

It’s been a banner year for fairly disgusting things on-screen. No real guesses as to why, but we’re not here to slave over the reasons. We’re here to simply recount, and to celebrate.

From FrightFest-backed horrors, to gonzo arthouse dealings and even the occasional indie weepy, this year’s rundown of the grimiest and grisliest goings-on in film is actually, for the first time in a while, a little over-stuffed. And it’s not all just visceral gore either, 2017 saw a whole bunch of seriously effective psychological thrillers throwing their hat in the ring too, not to mention the occasional bit of dark humour. So without much further ado, and in no particular order…

*The following may contain spoilers*

Originally hitting the festival circuit in 2016, Julia Ducournau’s coming-of-age cannibal horror was a serious breakout hit

Corporate Chaos Ensues In The Bloody First Clip For Mayhem

Think you’re having a bad day? Just wait until you see this new and blood-drenched clip for Mayhem, Joe Lynch’s corporate thriller that places Steven Yeun (The Walking Dead) in the thick of an epic office brawl.

Arriving on the eve of release – Mayhem is due to hit VOD and Digital HD tomorrow, November 10th – the promo below is all about Yeun’s cubicle slave, Derek Cho, who takes up arms alongside Samara Weaving (Ash vs. Evil Dead, The Babysitter) after being framed for corporate espinoage.

As luck would have it, those allegations come just as a mysterious virus sweeps through the office, reducing everyone in its vicinity into a blood-thirsty maniac. And that’s when Mayhem really begins to live up to its evocative title. After all, what else did you expect from the director behind Wrong Turn 2?

Here’s the synopsis for more:

“My next picture could be a remake of Howard’s End…” Greg McLean ‘Jungle’ Interview

Out to own this week is Jungle, the knuckle-gnawing true story of adventurer Yossi Ghinsberg. Ghinsberg was stranded in the heart of the Amazon rainforest, where he faced a terrifying ordeal battling the elements for his very survival.

Daniel Radcliffe plays Yossi in the movie, which is directed by Wolf Creek‘s Greg McLean. We sat down for a chat about raging rapids, rugged Radcliffes and the inhospitable climes of Wolf Creek Season 2…

Thn: The film is something of a departure for you. What drew you to the project?

Greg McLean: I wanted to make a movie where people were trying to save a life rather than take it. (Laughs) A lot of my films have been horror films. I thought the true story was incredible, it was very inspiring. When I first read it I thought what these guys did and how it happened was very moving and

‘Jungle’ Review: Harry Potter Meets Werner Herzog in a Feverish Survival Story

‘Jungle’ Review: Harry Potter Meets Werner Herzog in a Feverish Survival Story
In the years since hanging up his quidditch broom, Daniel Radcliffe has blazed a surprisingly adventurous trail, devoting himself to risky projects that stray far from the beaten path, some of them quite literally. For the second time in the last 18 months, the former “Harry Potter” star has wandered off into the wilderness, following the miraculously inventive “Swiss Army Man” with a true-life survival story about a restless Israeli kid who wound up stranded by himself in an uncharted stretch of the Amazon. And while “Jungle” glaringly lacks the flair and depth of feeling that defined Radcliffe’s previous stroll through the great outdoors, it’s somehow even more disgusting than “Swiss Army Man,” a movie in which the actor plays a corpse whose farts are so explosive that they propel his body across the surface of the ocean like a jet ski.

“I was desperate to escape the well-worn path,

Jungle Review

Once an actor lands that iconic role that catapults him or her to mainstream stardom, few are ever able to truly escape its shadow. Yet, despite playing The Boy Who Lived in eight films over the course of a decade, former Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe has all but left Hogwart’s behind. In just a few short years, Radcliffe’s work in offbeat — to put it mildly — releases like Swiss Army Man and Horns has proven his willingness to take on challenging projects and provides sufficient evidence that he’s much more than the bespectacled child who won the world’s heart way back in 2001. Now, his latest film, Jungle, continues that string of intriguing and divisive choices.

Based on a true story, the movie follows Yossi Ghinsberg (Radcliffe) and a pair of globe-trotting friends (Joel Jackson and Alex Russell) as they embark on a journey through the Bolivian jungle.

New Mayhem Images Tease A Bloody Office Brawl

If you’ve been wondering what fan favourite actor Steven Yeun has been up to since the infamous and brutal death of his character on The Walking Dead, wonder no more. Here he is, gloriously and deservedly front and centre in a new batch of photos for an upcoming action-horror movie about workplace frustrations, and how to work them out. It’s called Mayhem and is directed by Joe Lynch (Everly), from a script written by Matias Caruso (in his feature length debut).

If the pics below put you in mind of 2016’s The Belko Experiment, you’re not incorrect. Both focus their action around violence between people trapped in an office environment for an extended period of time. However, there is one important difference.

Where The Belko Experiment is steeped in conspiracy and suspicion, Mayhem could not be simpler. The film sees an infection sweep through the offices of Towers & Smythe Consulting,

Interview: Director Greg McLean on Collaborating with Daniel Radcliffe and the Real-Life Horrors That Inspired Jungle

  • DailyDead
This Friday, Momentum Pictures is set to release Jungle, the latest from Greg McLean (The Belko Experiment, Wolf Creek 1 and 2), which tells the real-life story of Yossi Ghinsberg (played by Daniel Radcliffe), who traveled to the Amazon rainforest during the 1980s, and had to contend with the brutal dangers lurking all around him and his group of fellow travelers as they made their way through the unforgiving titular locale. Shortly after surviving his ordeal, Ghinsberg wrote a book about his experiences, which is also entitled Jungle, and McLean discussed in a recent interview with Daily Dead how he first discovered the autobiographical tale and knew that he needed to adapt it for the big screen.

McLean also chatted about what made Daniel Radcliffe perfect to portray Jungle’s hero, the challenges they all faced during the ambitious shoot, and more. Look for Jungle in theaters and on VOD on Friday,

‘Mayhem’ Trailer: All Hell Breaks Loose During a Bad Day at the Office

‘Mayhem’ Trailer: All Hell Breaks Loose During a Bad Day at the Office
Remember The Belko Experiment? It came out earlier this year and was a B-movie set in an office building about employees who were forced to kill each other at the behest of a mysterious voice who locked them inside. I found that film to be an ugly and largely pointless exercise in brutality, but if that didn’t scratch your […]

Movie Review – Jungle (2017)

Jungle, 2017.

Directed by Greg McLean.

Starring Daniel Radcliffe, Thomas Kretschmann, Alex Russel, Joel Jackson, Lily Sullivan, and Yasmin Kassim.

Synopsis:

A group of friends join a guide for a trek into the Bolivian jungle, searching for an Indian village. The men soon realize that the jungle is a difficult place to be.

Seeing as Daniel Radcliffe (Aka the boy wizard Harry Potter) hit a grand slam with his similarly themed but far less reality grounded performance in Swiss Army Man (a severely overlooked and underrated film, easily the best of 2016), it’s a no-brainer that he was attracted to the script for director Greg McLean’s (Wolf Creek and his first 2017 film, The Belko Experiment) survivalist biopic Jungle, a genre feature about a tightknit band of close friends and a shady travel guide exploring uncharted Bolivian territory for pleasure, treasure, and a hidden Indian tribe. However, heading back to the

Mayhem Strikes In Trailer For New Workplace Horror Movie

If you were wondering what fan favourite actor Steven Yeun has been up to since the infamous demise of his character on The Walking Dead, wonder no more. Here he is, gloriously and deservedly front and centre in a new action-horror movie about workplace frustrations, and how to work them out. Directed by Joe Lynch (Everly), and written by Matias Caruso (in his feature length debut) – this is the trailer for Mayhem.

If the promotional footage above puts you in mind of 2016’s The Belko Experiment, you’re not incorrect. Both centre their action around violence between people trapped in an office environment for an extended period of time. There’s an important difference, though.

You'll Never Look at Steven Yeun the Same Way After Watching the Mayhem Trailer

Steven Yeun's time on The Walking Dead might be over, but that doesn't mean he's left blood and gore behind. The actor plays the extremely disturbing lead in Mayhem, whose office building is beset by a virus that turns normal employees into unhinged, bloodthirsty aggressors who are all promptly locked inside for eight hours by the Cdc. The horror flick - which has some major The Belko Experiment vibes - also stars Samara Weaving and will hit theaters, video on demand, and digital HD on Nov. 11.

Workers Get the Axe in this First Trailer for Mayhem

The first trailer for Joe Lynch's (Chillerama, 2011) Mayhem has been released. It shows a group of office workers turning on each other, after infectious material is introduced into the building. One part Dawn of the Dead (1978) and one part Office Space (1999), the film stars: Steven Yeun ("The Walking Dead"), Samara Weaving ("Ash vs Evil Dead") and several others. The film's first trailer is reminiscent of still another film, The Belko Experiment (2016). And, that clip can be found here. Yeun plays Derek. He has just lost his job. But, the tables turn on his managers, when a virus is let loose. Now, Derek is looking for revenge, after this slight. Everyone is in the crosshairs as chaos ensues.

The Apprentice: a show I hate to love

Dave Lawrie Oct 4, 2017

The Apprentice is back! Here's one geek's moral struggle with his enduring love of the BBC reality game show...

The start of a new series of The Apprentice always seems to creep up on me. Somehow it isn’t until I hear Prokofiev’s Dance Of The Knights blasting through my living room on the first trail that I become aware of its imminent arrival, and it always fills me with the same feeling of slightly shameful excitement. I’m really not a fan of the term ‘guilty pleasure’, as nobody should be made to feel guilt simply for enjoying something that the cool kids don’t, but The Apprentice is the only show I can think of that I genuinely feel bad for enjoying so much. It’s easy to see it as a parade of wankers who you wouldn’t want to sit near on a train,

Where have all the 18 certificate films gone?

Mark Harrison Sep 20, 2017

American Assassin and mother! are both 18-certificate films that landed in UK cinemas the same week. This is not common at all...

This feature is rated 18 for discussion of strong language, sex and violence, and minor spoilers for Black Swan, Logan, John Wick Chapter 2 and American Assassin. There are no spoilers for Mother!.

You know how it is. You wait ages for one film with an 18 certificate and then two of them arrive in UK cinemas in the same week. American Assassin, an action thriller adapted from Vince Flynn's Mitch Rapp novels, and Mother!, the new drama from Darrren Aronofsky, both landed in the uppermost BBFC category for 'strong violence'.

It's comparatively rare to see the 18 certificate before films these days, when they used to pop up on all manner of films, from raunchy comedies to sci-fi actioners. In the case of many older films that

Daniel Radcliffe Goes Through Hell And High Water In First Jungle Clip

Post-Potter life has been fairly kind to Daniel Radcliffe.

From battling The Woman in Black to infiltrating a neo-Nazi sect in Imperium, not to mention the wholly irreverent Swiss Army Man, the former Boy Who Lived has consistently strayed outside his comfort zone in order to approach weird, wonderful, and often compelling roles. And Jungle is yet another quirky feather in Radcliffe’s hat.

Coming by way of horror veteran Greg McLean, who is perhaps best known for directing Wolf Creek, Rogue, and this year’s Battle Royale clone, The Belko Experiment, Jungle is the story of 22-year-old Israeli backpacker Yossi Ghinsberg. Flanked by his two best friends, Yossi embarks on what he believes will be the adventure of a lifetime, but the truth is much, much more. What follows is an intense fight for survival, and today’s newly-released clip documents a scene on the Jungle rapids.

Also starring Alex Russell,
