HollyShorts Winner: Downtempo Fairy Tale Takes Top Prize

The 7th Annual HollyShorts Film Festival announced 2011's class of short film winners in a standing room only awards ceremony Thursday night. The HollyShorts Best Overall Short Film went to Mrs. Peppercorn's Magical Reading Room, posted below. Mike LeHan's eerie, sepia-toned film shows the persistence of childish curiosity in the face of a mystery: it's a mix of the rational wondering of Harry Potter and the acquiescent observing of the girl lead from Pan's Labyrinth. Mrs. Peppercorn won $10,000 in postproduction and finishing services package from Company 3. The Best Director Award went to Christian Swegal, the director of the spooky and staggering Statis, also posted below, about an ex-soldier undergoing simulation exercises to recover from post-traumatic stress disorder. Swegal and LeHan are just two in a healthy crop of other winners. Mrs Peppercorn's Magical Reading Room from Black Lake Films on Vimeo. Stasis from Christian Swegal on Vimeo.

[Blu-Review] Alien Anthology

Finally, one of the box-sets we’ve all been waiting for! The Alien franchise is one of those series that’s perfect for Blu-Ray. It is a benchmark for the format and you can check out our full review of The Alien Anthology below.

Alien:

How much can one say about the timeless classic sci-fi horror film that hasn’t been said before? Well, very little. This is still Ridley Scott‘s finest film to date and it hasn’t aged a bit. Every beat of tension still lands with a punch, the alien is still one of the best ever to be put on-screen, and it’s atmosphere stays eerie and unsettling throughout.

Alien is the king of the monster movies. Very few horror films can achieve the level of investment Scott and co. did with making you actually care for the ensemble, even outside of Ripley. What
