‘Siren’ VOD Review

Stars: Vinessa Shaw, Robert Kazinsky, Bess Wohl, Ross Partridge, Christian Winsor, Stephen O’Neil Martin, Ben Hanson | Written and Directed by Jesse Peyronel

Not another film about killer mermaids (Hi Killer Mermaids), the bewitching Siren is a modern tale of an inadvertent Poison Ivy, hiding out in her woodland cottage. Leigh (Vinessa Shaw) just can’t help herself; giving off a powerful pheromone, any man who comes into contact with her instantly, irrevocably falls in love (or lust). Enter Guy (Robert Kazinsky) a smooth drifter who seems immune to her charms.

Where this could be the springboard for an unpleasant, rapey misogyny fest or teenage dumb-athon, Jesse Peyronel’s Siren is instead a sweet, gentle love story with slowly unfolding (yet mild) action waiting in the wings. Shaw and Kazinsky are well cast in their roles, even if the latter’s American accent doesn’t always ring true (certainly more

The Walking Dead producers Circle of Confusion will adapt the Image Comics series Sheltered.

Jesse Peyronel (Siren) is writing the screenplay based on Ed Brisson and Johnnie Christmas's title, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The 'pre-apocalyptic' tale centres around a group of families living in seclusion who anticipate the imminent destruction of North America by a powerful volcanic eruption.

Circle of Confusion is also adapting the upcoming comic series Outcast from Walking Dead co-creator Robert Kirkman.

Peyronel intends to direct Sheltered as well, with filming scheduled for late 2014.

Pacific Rim Movie: Charlie Hunnam Male Bonding Energy

Guillermo del Toro‘s Pacific Rim movie image: Idris Elba PrometheusIdris Elba will soon be Pacific Rim‘s Idris Elba. Two movies beginning with a "p" and featuring nasty aliens set on destroying the human race. This is one thing I never get about alien invasion movies: with human beings intent on destroying themselves or looking the other way as their world goes to rot, why would aliens take the time to destroy us? They just have to wait a few decades (or less) and the job will be done for them. Well, let’s go for something more philosophically challenging: Guillermo del Toro’s affirmation that Pacific Rim star Charlie Hunnam, 32, is "the right side of honest and good looking that you don’t want to punch him in the face. You want to have a pint with the guy. You want to take him to the pub.
