‘Lake Tomahawk’ DVD Review

Stars: Brando Eaton, Eileen Dietz, Peter O’Brien, Caroline Tudor, Brad Schmidt, Laura Niemi, Michael Shamus Wiles | Written by Stevie Jane Miller | Directed by Ben Milliken

Originally titled Lake Alice, this unassuming horror film is actually the latest in a long line of seasonal slashers set at that most festive of times… Christmas.

Lake Tomahawk – from former actor turned director Ben Milliken (Newcastle, Blue Crush 2) – follows Ryan Emerson (Schmidt) who, while meeting his girlfriend Sarah’s (Tudor) family for the first time, must prove his intentions and win the approval of her father, Greg (O’Brien), while he masks his jealousy for Sarah’s ex-fling, Tyler (Eaton). As the Thomas family settles in, things start to happen around the cabin; strange footprints by the windows, noises from outside, and a bitter animosity from the locals, including the law enforcement. As a blizzard descends on Lake Alice so does the evil…

Shock Interview: Sharni Vinson of Bait 3D

There's a good chance Sharni Vinson could kick your ass.  No, I'm serious.  Although this Australian actress also starred in Step Up 3D, Shock Till You Drop was first introduced to her in You're Next, the festival darling that is not due to hit theaters until August 2012.  In that film, her character has a few surprises up her sleeve.  It turns out, she can hold her own against a handful of bad guys quite well.  The same could be said for her turn in Bait 3D, just swap out "bad guys" and toss in a great white shark or two and you'll find Vinson back in survivalist mode once again.  

But back to that ass kicking.  Her early days found her dancing and swimming - a real pro athelete growing up.  Then the acting bug hit and she began to use her physicality in films like the aforementioned Step Up

Adam Wingards Youre Next Finally Set for an August 2013 Release

Last year when Lionsgate had acquired the rights to Adam Wingard's horror/thriller 'You're Next' we were all expecting an Autumn 2012 release.

So drum roll please...the release date is 23 August 2013. Yes I know it's nearly still a year away but at least its locked in. Aj Bowen, Nick Tucci, Wendy Glenn, Rob Moran, Amy Seimetz Joe Swanberg, Barbara Crampton and 'The Innkeepers' helmer Ti West all co-star in the flick. Head below for the plot deets....

Bait Swims into Your Home and Arrives on DVD and Blu-ray this September

Anchor Bay Films are set to unleash Kimble Rendall's Australian shark flick 'Bait' into homes this coming September. Coming your way in all sorts of forms such as DVD, Blu-ray, DVD and Blu-ray Combo pack and of course on Blu-ray 3D the thriller with bite sadly has a notably lacklustre list of bonus features which don't appear to stretch much further than a gallery of storyboards. Hopefully more is planned for the release when it hits all of these modern day digitial discs on 18 September across the Us. No word just yet on a UK release but I would envisage this going straight to DVD as well probably around October time. Check out the new Blu-ray artwork below, which is actually identical to the recent one-sheet we posted. 'Bait' stars Julian McMahon ('Nip/Tuck'), Xavier Samuel ('The Twilight Saga: Eclipse'), Alice Parkinson ('

Tribeca Top 10: Mark Sikes

Top 10 Movies of 2011 from TribecaFilm.com's Web Producer. He imagined an all-Gosling movie landscape. Can you blame him? Mark Sikes Web Producer, TribecaFilm.com 1. Drive (Nicolas Winding Refn) In a tour de force performance, Ryan Gosling smashes his pretty-boy type cast to reinvent himself as a hollywood badass. The performance was so good I split up with my wife two weeks after seeing it partly due to the fact that she didn't think I had the capacity to stomp someone's skull into jagged little pieces to protect her. 2. The Tiniest Place / El Lugar Mas Pequeno (hypothetically starring Ryan Gosling) If this were a documentary about Ryan Gosling backpacking through El Salvador instead of a war movie, it would have totally been number 2 on my list. 3. Hugo (hypothetically starring Ryan Gosling) Because the only thing better than Ryan Gosling would be an animated 3D Ryan Gosling. 4. Blue Crush 2 (hypothetically starring

Grant and 'Six Feet Under' actress Rachel Griffiths are set to co-star. Check out the

Newish on DVD. Reader's Choice?

Last time we did this you chose The Other Woman -- curse you!!! -- but we'll do this bi-weekly because I aim to please. The following films debuted on DVD yesterday or last week. Which are you planning to watch? Which would you have me watch/write up?

Biutiful -in which Javier Bardem gives Job a run for his money in the personal misery department. Sounds like a laugh riot. Blue Crush 2 -in which... well, surfer girls! Three of them. The Company Men - in which rich famous-looking guys lose their jobs and must rebuild their lives. It's hard being super rich and then not quite as rich, okay !?! Drive Angry - in which Nicolas Cage and Amber Heard put medal to the pedal and chase after a cult leader in some sort of exploitation movie. 3D only obviously not now that it's for home viewing. Just Go With It

Exclusive: Elizabeth Mathis Talks Blue Crush 2
Actress Elizabeth Mathis discusses playing Pushy in Blue Crush 2, learning how to surf, shooting in South Africa, and more.

Elizabeth Mathis is an actress you may have seen pop up in big moves over the past few years. She portrayed Tess in Enchanted, Nicole in Unstoppable, and one of the "sirens" in the sci-fi hit Tron: Legacy. The actress will surely get a big push from her latest project, Blue Crush 2, where she plays, ironically, a character named Pushy. The story follows a young surfer named Dana (Sasha Jackson) who journeys to South Africa to fulfill her recently-deceased mother's dream: to surf the legendary waves of Jeffrey Bay. Elizabeth Mathis' Pushy is one of the South African surf locals Dana gets into adventures with along the way.

Blue Crush 2 will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on June 7, and I recently had the chance to speak
