Devil's Pass (2013)
The story deals with Eichar's five-year probe into the unsolved 1959 deaths of nine experienced hikers in Russia's Ural Mountains - an event also known as the "Dyatlov Pass incident".
Soviet investigators had found that the hikers had torn open their tents and run barefoot out into the snow on a night in February, saying an 'unknown compelling force' had caused the deaths.
Access to the region was subsequently blocked for hikers and adventurers for three years, whilst there has been decades of speculation. Theories range from failed Soviet military experiment to even an alien attack.
"Transcendence" producers Kate Cohen and Marisa Polvino are teaming with Casey Carroll to produce the film. The story was previously the subject of the 2013 film "Devil's Pass" which IFC released in the U.

We reported last month that The Originals star Claire Holt was up for the title role, but just one week later, another report surfaced that the series is no longer interested in the actress. We also reported in October that Kara Zor-El will be 24 years old in the series, with CBS
British tabloid The Sun reported the news and says Atkinson apparently auditioned for the show recently and is "waiting to hear whether she has been cast" in the role of 24-year-old Kara Zor-El.
Greg Berlanti ("Arrow," "The Flash") is producing the series which sports two female leads, the other being Kara's secret government agent foster sister Alex.
Claire Holt ("The Vampire Diaries") was previously rumored for the role, though her name was quickly dismissed due to her commitments to both "The Originals" and "Aquarius".

Beyond an ominous title card, Ff films require little backstory, and the genre has only a brief history of its own. An uncompromising, hand-over-the-camera-lens look at totalitarianism in Vietnam-era America, Peter Watkins' 1971 mock-doc Punishment Park is considered Ff's chief forebear. Ruggiero Deodato's still-troubling Cannibal Holocaust (1979), however, is the most striking early archetype. Following a gonzo film crew into tribal Amazonia, it puts video-nasty atrocities through a film-school filter,

From faked lunar landings to invisible WWII warships, here are six conspiracy theories and the genre films they inspired...
"Fluoridation is the most monstrously conceived and dangerous communist plot we have ever had to face," Sterling Hayden's General Jack D Ripper coldly announces in Stanley Kubrick's breathtakingly funny satire, Dr Strangelove.
Ripper's conspiracy theory, that the commies are secretly trying to compromise our "precious bodily fluids", becomes his harebrained reason for unleashing a missile strike on the Ussr. And just as Ripper was inspired by this strange notion to trigger a nuclear apocalypse, so filmmakers have been inspired by conspiracy theories to make all kinds of science fiction and horror movies - some funny, some tense and absorbing, others terrifying.
Here, then, is a selection of six real-world conspiracy theories and the varied movies they inspired - and funnily enough, Stanley Kubrick

What's It About? This little Texan indie is part romance and part dramatic thriller. Casey Affleck, Rooney Mara, and Ben Foster headline this top-notch cast about a man on the run, the woman he loves, and the sheriff who tries to get between them. (Not in a romantic way, just, you know, because he's a man of the law and Affleck's character broke out of jail.)
Why We're In: It's a slow and sweet Sundance favorite, and the Texas weather looks a whole lot hotter than the snow most of us are dealing with every day.

The film that was causing all of the hoopla was none other than Eduardo Sanchez and Daniel Myrick’s The Blair Witch Project, although not the first ever in the sub-genre now known as ‘found footage’, it turned out to be the most memorable and acclaimed. Sanchez and Myrick had used the internet and showings at film festivals to build a major
