DVD Review - Bringing Up Bobby (2011)

13 May 2013 10:31 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Bringing Up Bobby, 2011.

Written and Directed by Famke Janssen.

Starring Milla Jovovich, Bill Pullman, Rory Cochrane, Marcia Cross and Spencer List.

Synopsis:

Despite con artist Olive’s (Milla Jovovich) aspirations for a better future for her son, her arrest sees Good Samaritans Kent (Bill Pullman) and Mary (Marcia Cross) take over his guardianship.

Debut films will inevitably be hindered by flaws; they are unlikely to be perfect. That said two recent directorial feature debuts, Makinov’s Come Out and Play and Ian Clark’s Brit horror The Facility, were full of promise. Look back far enough and the Soska Sisters' Dead Hooker in a Trunk and Robert Rodriguez’s El Mariachi were two debut films that were were rough around the edges yet equally showcased a raw creative talent that could mature with time and experience. There was a sense of inspired energy about these films, infused with an inspired vision. »

Win! ‘The Facility’ On DVD!

10 May 2013 3:03 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

To celebrate the arrival of the utterly tense, claustrophobic and overwhelmingly effective chiller ‘The Facility’ – out on DVD and Download now through eOne Momentum – we have a copy to give away to two lucky winners!

In this horror, it’s set as a clinical trial at a remote facility goes terribly wrong. Among those who sign up to test ProSyntrex’s latest drug Pro9 are Adam (Aneurin Barnard), Joni (Alex Reid), Carmen (Skye Lourie) and Jed (Oliver Coleman). The trial is highly secret, with no-one, including the staff who administer injections, aware of who is receiving the drug and who is in the placebo group. Shortly after the trial begins it becomes clear that something has gone wrong. There are unexplained disappearances, bizarre silhouettes and screaming from behind locked doors. Locked inside the facility, unaware of the true nature of events, the surviving patients and staff must band together to »

Exclusive Nsfw Clip From The Facility Gets Flashy

8 May 2013 2:30 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Director Ian Clark's medical horror The Facility is out on DVD in the UK now, not to mention that you can win a copy right here -- so to celebrate we've nabbed an exclusive look at this clinical trial gone haywire that's flashy in more way than one. Again, this is Not Safe For Work!

The Facility stars Alex Reid, Aneurin Barnard, and Steve Evets.

Synopsis:

Seven volunteers – students Carmen, Arif, and Adam; office temp Joni; journalist Katie; estate agent Jerome; and unemployed Derek – arrive at the remote Limebrook Medical Clinic to take part in a clinical trial run by ProSyntrex Pharmaceuticals. In exchange for a fee of £2,000, these human “guinea pigs” have agreed to spend two weeks in isolation testing an experimental new drug known only as Pro9. After settling into the facility, each participant is given a first injection and, following a group dinner, sent to bed. »

DVD Review: 'The Facility'

7 May 2013 5:47 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★☆☆☆ Screened as part of last year's Eiff and Film4 FrightFest lineups, British director Ian Clark's low-budget debut The Facility (2012) (formerly known as 'Guinea Pigs') now finds its way onto DVD, having just missed out on a theatrical release. A group of eight strangers come together at an isolated research facility to undergo a phase one medical trial for an untested drug called 'Pro-9'. Most of the participants are there for the money, with some having made such clinical trials their primary source of income. Katie (Nia Roberts) is a journalist there to cover the procedure for a piece she's currently writing - entitled 'The Last Resort'.

If Katie was looking to discover the depths that people will go to when faced with extreme hardship, then she certainly gets what she came for, as she and the others soon encounter a series of peculiar side effects from »

The Facility DVD Review

7 May 2013 4:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

In medical trials around 99% of the subjects suffer no actual side effects from the drugs that are pumped into them, but what about the other 1%? That’s what The Facility takes as its core idea and although it’s not a true story, it is presented as if it’s a reconstruction of an actual event.

This is an area which horror has largely stayed away from but the pharmaceutical industry is presumably ripe for exploitation. The trouble with The Facility is writer and director Ian Clark forgets some essential elements required for this kind of story which render it fairly ineffective.

We start with several members of the public making their way to a building in the middle of nowhere (or the British countryside). We get to know the bare minimum about Joni (temp worker), Morty (unemployed professional guinea pig), Jed (alpha male estate agent), Arif (shy and troubled »

The Facility (2012) Movie Review

3 May 2013 2:02 PM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Award winning short film writer director Ian Clark (“Jenny and the Worm”) makes his feature debut with the horror thriller “The Facility”, which arrives now on region 2 DVD via eOne Momentum, having played various fests under the name “Guinea Pigs”. A claustrophobic, low budget British take on the likes of “28 Days Later”, “The Crazies” and other fast/angry/infected/non-zombie shockers, the film stars a handful of semi-recognisable faces including Alex Reid (“The Descent” plus sequel), Steve Evets (“Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides”) and Oliver Coleman (“The Other Boleyn Girl”). The setup involves 7 unfortunate strangers who volunteer to take part in a clinical drug trial at the inevitably remote Limebrook Medical Clinic. Enticed by a fee of £2000 for 2 weeks in isolation and being injected with the experimental Pro9, they soon find things going very wrong indeed, as one of the group starts to convulse violently and vomit blood before attacking the others. »
