First UK Trailer For ‘Grace Jones: Bloodlight And Bami’

The very first UK trailer for Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami has debuted online.

Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami (opening in cinemas nationwide on 27 October) re-invents the music film as an electrifying journey through the performance, private and public worlds of pop cultural icon Grace Jones, whose bold aesthetic echoes throughout the film. Director Sophie Fiennes (The Pervert’s Guide To Ideology, The Pervert’s Guide To Cinema, Over Your Cities Grass Will Grow) creates a powerful cinematic experience, contrasting breathtaking musical sequences with intimate personal footage, ultimately reaching beyond the iconic mask. In Jamaican patois, ‘Bloodlight’ is the red light that illuminates when an artist is recording and ‘Bami’ means bread, the substance of daily life.

The film is produced by Katie Holly (Love & Friendship, The Queen Of Ireland, Citadel) of Dublin-based Blinder Films, alongside Sophie Fiennes, Shani Hinton and Beverly Jones. The film is backed by BBC Films (Brooklyn,

Review: Game of Thrones – Season 7 – Episode 2

Well then. Quite a lot happened in this one, didn’t it?

It really is quite refreshing, when you watch as much TV as I do, to appreciate just how damn well written this show is. With only very minor exceptions, every scene is brimming with good lines. With strong characterisation. With what is not said being just as important as what is. Game of Thrones really is a masterclass in how to write a good TV programme. It just also happens to contain dragons. And eunuch sex.

But seriously. There were so many decent scenes to talk about here that it really doesn’t do it justice to just type about it. So, if you haven’t seen this episode yet, and if you don’t watch Game of Thrones, then for the love of God. Get watching!

So, we began this week on a very stormy Dragonstone, with

Scale the Best Films Taking Place in a High-Rise

What is it about towering apartment buildings that fascinates filmmakers, especially those working in horror, sci-fi, and fantasy? It’s easy to imagine these eyesores of urban development — especially those with secured entrances and exclusive tenants — harboring sinister secrets inside their walls.

High-Rise, director Ben Wheatley adaptation’s of J.G. Ballard‘s eponymous sci-fi novel, more than fits into this strange subset of films, as it focuses on dystopian class warfare inside a monolithic beast of Brualist architecture. With the film now in theaters (and on VOD), we look at other other films that imagine the incredible, horrifying, or supernatural happenings in and around these deceptively unassuming structures.

Giveaway – Win A Free Bluray of Sinister 2!!

Scott Derrickson’s Sinister was a hit with horror fans, so when it came time to tackle a sequel to the 2012 shocker, it seemed like a followup would be a surefire success. Unfortunately, a lot of genre lovers didn’t show up to see the Derrickson/C. Robert Cargill-written Sinister 2 (on Blu-ray & DVD January 12th), and it’s a shame, as it was quite easily one of my favorite films of 2015. Stepping in to direct the sequel was Citadel‘s Ciaran Foy, who not only gave the genre a solid followup, but one that was also better than the 2012 original. Like our previous two giveaways, we’ve partnered up with Universal to give one lucky reader a Bluray copy of Sinister 2, so by all means, enter!

Review: Sinister 2

Scott Derrickson’s 2012 shocker Sinister was a surprise hit, telling a grim story about a true crime author moving his family into a crime scene and eventually opening up a Pandora’s box of evil in the form of a film projector and a boogieman that lived inside of it. It was an in your face film, didn’t pull a single punch and gave one grim ending that left a lot of viewers holding their mouths in shock. As we all know, when a film does well, talks of a sequel typically come up, and faster than you can say “Sinister 2″, there was the inevitable announcement of well,…Sinister 2. How would a sequel to a film in which every major character is killed off fare? Would taking a minor character from the first film, and fleshing out said character be enough to make an interesting continuation? More times than not,
