Rock and Roll Nightmare (1987) Review

Written by Kevin Scott, MoreHorror.com

Rock and Roll Nightmare aka Edge of Hell (1987)

Directed by: John Fasano

Written by: Jon Mikl Thor

Cast: Jon Mikl Thor (John Triton), Jillian Peri (Lou Anne), Frank Dietz (Roger), David Lane (Max), Teresa Simpson (Randy)

Gateway films can take a horror aficionado down roads to a destination that resurrects memories of humble beginnings as a young horror fan. I found “Trick or Treat” on YouTube in its entirety a few weeks back, and nostalgia overpowered me to the point that I had to go down the rabbit hole of horror and hair metal to see how far it goes. “Trick of Treat” seems to be the one that everyone remembers, mainly because of Gene Simmons and Ozzy Osbourne making brief cameos, and Skippy from “Family Ties” sporting long hair, and dropping the “F” word from time to time. Stuff like that is downright unforgettable.

Lone Survivor review: Mark Wahlberg leads gruelling war drama

Lone Survivor review: Mark Wahlberg leads gruelling war drama
Director: Peter Berg; Screenwriter: Peter Berg; Starring: Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Emile Hirsch, Ben Foster, Eric Bana; Running time: 121 mins; Certificate: 15

The film title may give away a little too much for those not familiar with the true story of Marcus Luttrell, one of four Us Navy SEALs who were dangerously outnumbered on Operation Red Wings in Afghanistan during 2005. Mark Wahlberg stands firm as Luttrell and he also produced this version of events which, ultimately, celebrates the brotherhood of soldiers and hits hard, on a gut level.

Luttrell doesn't find himself truly alone for more than 20 minutes on screen. In fact, writer/director Peter Berg spends a surprisingly long time painting a portrait of life on the Us military base near Afghanistan's Kunar Province. The guys engage in locker-room banter between quieter moments of reflection as thoughts turn to home and the loved ones who are waiting for them there.

Chimpanzee

Welcome to the jungle for the real-life fun and games of a young chimp called Oscar, as captured by the team behind Disney documentaries Earth and African Cats. Narrated with anthropomorphic zeal by Tim Allen, it’s a wild, funny, and occasionally alarming adventure showing that survival is not only a tricky learning curve, but sometimes requires a bit of luck. High drama and sumptuous imagery makes it an eye-opening experience for all.

Peter Berg on Friday Night Lights and The Rundown 2

News Glen Chapman 11 Dec 2013 - 06:54

Peter Berg plays down another Friday Night Lights movie, and plays up a sequel to The Rundown, starring Dwayne Johnson.

Friday Night Lights is one of the finest American TV dramas of recent years, and one that we’ve championed on this site recently. Furthermore, the finale of the show was as perfect as fans could have hoped for, offering a sense of closure on the storylines as well as leaving you wanting more and offering a glimpse of what the future held for the characters.

The show spun out of a movie directed by Peter Berg, who also oversaw the TV series. And there have been rumours for some time about a film sequel that would be connected to the TV series. The cast have certainly indicated that they'd be interested, but it seems that it isn't the way that Peter Berg himself wants to go.

Peter Berg Developing Another Rundown

Peter Berg Developing Another Rundown
For some reason it's always been known as Welcome To The Jungle around this neck of the woods. According to director Peter Berg (and some of the dialogue, and the song over the end credits), however, the official title of his 2003 Dwayne Johnson-starring comedy action epic remains The Rundown. It wasn't a film that was greatly loved at the time, but has rightly picked up a fond following in the decade since its release, to the extent that Berg is often asked about a sequel. And hey, it turns out he's had another Rundown in the works for ages!The original, you'll recall, saw his Rockness playing bounty hunter Beck, sent to Brazil to run down Seann William Scott, encountering a hot love interest in Rosario Dawson, and getting on the wrong side of villainous local magnate Christopher Walken. Arnold Schwarzenegger had a brief cameo, and Ewen Bremner was in it too.

Berg: Rundown 2? Yes. Fnl Movie? No.

A decade after its release, filmmaker Peter Berg is developing a sequel to his action-comedy "The Rundown".

Also known as "Welcome to the Jungle" in other parts of the world, Dwayne Johnson played an aspiring chef and bounty hunter who is sent to Brazil to retrieve his employer's wayward son (Seann William Scott).

From the sounds of it Scott won't be back, instead we'll see Johnson's Beck character on a new case. Berg tells Collider:

"We just met with writers, so we're trying to do it. I really want to do it. I've talked to Dwayne. I have an actor in mind that I can't say that I want to work with Dwayne on it, and we want to do it."

Berg, who is doing promo rounds for his true story tale "Lone Survivor," also had sad news for fans of his "Friday Night Lights" series - there won't be

Peter Berg developing The Rundown sequel
Peter Berg is developing a sequel to The Rundown.

He is courting Dwayne Johnson to return for the follow-up to the 2003 action-adventure movie.

"We just met with writers, so we're trying to do it," Berg told Collider.

"I really want to do it. I've talked to Dwayne. I have an actor in mind that I can't say that I want to work with Dwayne on it, and we want to do it."

The original film starred Johnson as a bounty hunter sent to Brazil to retrieve his employer's wayward son (Seann William Scott).

It was released in the UK as Welcome to the Jungle.

Berg next release will be Lone Survivor, which arrives in January.

He will then be working on the script to the Mark Wahlberg-starring American Desperado.

Jean-Claude Van Damme Stalks a New Trailer for Peter Hyams’ Enemies Closer

All of a sudden it’s Van Damme every day. Damn. First there was that awesome Volvo commercial, then the release of a trailer for his goofy comedy “Welcome to the Jungle”, now the Muscles from Brussels offers up a look at a less goofy “Enemies Closer”. Check it out below, check it outers. The funny thing about this new trailer for director Peter Hyams’ “Enemies Closer” is that, even though Van Damme is the bad guy, the trailer is cut in a way that, if you didn’t already know he was a bad guy, you’d think he was the hero. (Okay, so a slightly unhinged looking hero.) I mean, he even gets his name as part of the tagline, for God’s sake! After a major shipment of drugs goes missing on the Us-Canadian border, forest ranger and former Navy Seal Henry is plunged into survival mode

10 Most Infamous Guns N’ Roses Moments

The most dangerous band in the world. It’s hard to imagine now just how much trouble five young “runaways” would inflict upon the International music scene in such a short space of time. Living for the moment and sometimes moments from living this band were the definition of flying too close to the sun. Guns N’ Roses exploded onto the music scene in 1987 with their debut album ‘Appetite for Destruction’ – mixing the raw attitude of Punk with the aggression and musical styling of anything between Jimi Hendrix, Queen and The Rolling Stones. In a few short summers the band had imploded, into a mixture of myth and mystery, before front man W. Axl Rose emerged at the turn of a new Millennium with a cryptic video about cleanliness and earning the nickname “the Howard Hughes of Rock N’ Roll”

Today Guns N’ Roses tours and performs around the world

Jcvd is a Kickass Motivational Coach In Welcome To The Jungle [Trailer]

I have a really bad feeling that Jcvd gets killed early on in Welcome to the Jungle but if he doesn't, this could be fun. Just picture it... Van Damme saving a bunch of wussy office employees from natural jungle predators and each other with nothing more than his bare hands... It could be great right?

Ok, probably not but hey, it's nice to see that Van Damme is doing more than epic splits for Volvo. Who knows, maybe he'll even turn up in a theatrical release in the coming months. He's certainly working on enough projects.

Welcome to the Jungle opens theatrically and will be available on VOD February 7th.

The 5 Most Omg Moments from the Final 'Catching Fire' Trailer

The final trailer for "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" is in, and tributes, they totally saved the best for last with this one ... even if it did launch during last night's fourth World Series game between the Red Sox and the Cardinals for whatever reason (welcome to an all-new brand of competition, sports fans).

In it, we finally get a glimpse at some of that jungle action the gamemakers director Francis Lawrence and his team have rustled up for movie two, and they weren't stingy with peeks at some of the arena's freakiest little tricks either.

So to celebrate all the newness this "Catching Fire" tease has to offer, we're breakin' down the top 5 Omg-iest moments.

If you don't already know that spoilers abound below, you have not been paying attention.

Seann William Scott and Jackie Chan team up for Skiptrace

About 10 years ago, Seann William Scott was quite popular as a comedy/action hybrid star. He graduated from American Pie, starred in a few action films such as Welcome to the Jungle, Bulletproof Monk, and the occasional other comedy like Evolution. Since he's been away from the screen other than the somewhat overrated American Pie sequels. His hiatus is now set to change as The Hollywood Reporter is claiming Seann William Scott is set to team up with action legend Jackie Chan ( for a film known simply as Skiptrace. In the director's chair is relatively new talent Sam Fell (Paranorman).

Chan pitched the story himself, which involves a cop (Chan) whose niece (Fan Bingbing) finds herself in danger with the very same gang that Chan had been trying to catch for several years. Somehow a motor-mouth American gambler gets involved (Scott) who for some reason is a crucial part of

First Featurette Gives Us A Closer Look At Peter Berg’s Fact-Based Actioner ‘Lone Survivor’

Director Peter Berg will be hoping his next big-screen expedition will wipe any memory his massive-bugeted disaster Battleship. He’s got decent directing prowess having given us Friday Night Lights, the enjoyable Welcome To The Jungle (aka The Rundown) and dark all-star comedy Very Bad Things, so know he has it in him. Fingers crossed fact-based military thriller Lone Survivor sees him back on form.

The film is set in 2005 and centres on the mission of a team of Navy SEALs who were ambushed while in Afghanistan. It’s based on the same-titled novel by squad leader Marcus Tuttrell and follows their gruelling survival efforts while in the ill-fated Afghan mountains claimed as Taliban territory. Mark Wahlberg leads as Tuttrell, with his team made up of the impressive Taylor Kitsch, Ben Foster, Emile Hirsch and Eric Bana as his Lt. Cmdr. Erik S. Kristensen.

The Hey U Guys Instant Watching Guide – October 7th 2013

  • HeyUGuys
Breaking Bad is over and what a finale it was, although it may have been predictable based on what we knew from the flash forward at the start of the season, it still didn’t disappoint and was full of stirring and thrilling moments. More importantly, now that this is over, Netflix crucially need to up their game.

Hansel and Gretel and Texas Chainsaw, two pretty dire entries from earlier this year, just are not going to cut it against Argo and The Perks of Being a Wallflower regardless of who did what at the box office. Netflix seem to have the monopoly on quality catalogue titles this week with some little seen gems with Permanent Midnight and Orange County but this means nothing to the public and mostly registers with nerds like me.

This isn’t a suggestion that the company is in trouble at all but consider what

FEARnet Movie Review: 'The Green Inferno'

FEARnet Movie Review: 'The Green Inferno'
There's no denying that The Green Inferno director Eli Roth is a horror geek among horror geeks. He'd be the first to explain the different versions of Dawn of the Dead. He was the kid who bought Bloodsucking Freaks and Faces of Death when the other kids bought Halloween and Friday the 13th. And he's the one who knows the difference between Mountain of the Cannibal God (Sergio Martino, 1978), Cannibal Holocaust (Ruggero Deodato, 1980), and Cannibal Ferox (Umberto Lenzi, 1981).

So it should come as no surprise to anyone who knows their horror cinema that the director of Hostel has decided to pay homage to a very specific sub-genre: the "clueless idiots wander into the deep jungle" cannibal misadventure. Those who remember those sleazy non-classics with some degree of affection will certainly appreciate what Mr. Roth has cooked up in the foreboding jungles of Peru – although it's difficult to say if the shocking,

MTV VMAs: My spy report from the audience

MTV VMAs: My spy report from the audience
Attending MTV VIMAs as an audience member is like dining at a buffet, not a sit-down dinner. You don’t get a full course meal. You get to sample many varieties. Below are some bite-sized observations I had while dwelling in the belly of the beast. During the commercial break, DJ Cassidy played a mash-up of Guns N' Roses' "Welcome to the Jungle" and Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit." With no rock artists performing on the Vma stage this year, it was the only sign of rock. The telecast does not show the audience enough. The majority of the audience was decked out with real extravagance. Even people in the nose-bleed seats dressed to impress. Before the envelope is opened and a winner is announced, MTV's camera crew sets up in front of the winner. So, if you follow the movement of the camera crew, you know the next winner ahead of time.

First Trailer, Poster & Stills For Peter Berg’s ‘Lone Survivor’ Starring Wahlberg, Foster & Bana

I really miss seeing Peter Berg on the big-screen. He’s given impressive performances in the likes of Cop Land, The Last Seduction and Fire In The Sky, yet of late, he’s more content to bring us blockbuster disappointments with Hancock and Battleship. It’s not all bad though, having shown he can direct a decent film with both Friday Night Lights and Welcome To The Jungle (aka The Rundown) stand-outs in this directorial resume. Many also love his debut Very Bad Things, although I remember it being distinctly average. Maybe I’ll revisit and give it another chance.

Berg’s latest is set in 2005, the fact-based war drama Lone Survivor. It will depict the mission of a team of Navy SEALs, who were ambushed while in Afghanistan and is based on the same-titled novel by squad leader Marcus Tuttrell. It’s a harrowing true-life tale charting their gruelling

Amy Roloff Wants To Go Back To Work, Matt Isn't Supportive

Amy Roloff Wants To Go Back To Work, Matt Isn't Supportive
Amy Roloff has spent most of her life with husband Matt raising their kids and supporting his dreams about their farm. On the latest "Little People, Big World" special, "Breaking Down Walls," she decided that it was finally time for her to go back to work.

With just one child left in the home, she was ready to find something that was just for her. So she decided to pursue a career in education. Unfortunately, Matt wasn't very supportive of her plans. He'd rather she just work more on the farm.

“I just don’t think he understands or values some of my aspirations or dreams, because they’re not as big as his," she said in a confessional. "Or, what is that really going to contribute to our bank account?”

She went ahead and followed her heart, landing a job teaching a diversity course at an alternative school. Matt
