‘The Mind’s Eye’ Trailer: Psychokinetic Horror Movie Looks Like It’s Hoping to Be the Modern-Day ‘Scanners’

26 June 2016 10:30 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Did you ever see that scene in “Scanners where the dude’s head blew up? All evidence certainly points to Joe Begos having seen David Cronenberg’s body-horror exemplar, and by “all evidence” I of course mean the trailer for “The Mind’s Eye,” a psychokinetic thriller that’s been making the festival-circuit rounds since its premiere last fall. Check out the trailer below and pay special attention to its last few moments, which come close to directly invoking “Scanners.”

The film stars Graham Skipper and Lauren Ashley Carter as a coupled gifted (or cursed, depending your view of things) with supernatural talents that draw the attention of a doctor hoping to use their otherworldly abilities for his own nefarious purposes. Between its John Carpenter esque–soundtrack and VHS-ready font, the trailer evinces a distinctly retro vibe.

‘The Mind’s Eye’ Trailer: ’80s-Style Horror Is Back with Head-Exploding Vengeance

21 June 2016 4:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

The makers of The Mind’s Eye love their ’80s genre cinema and they wear that affection as a badge of honor. Like he did with his debut feature, Almost Human, writer/director Joe Begos has made a horror movie that looks like it time-warped straight out of 1982. The synth soundtrack is appropriately icy, the practical make-up […]

Firestarter and Scanners might come to mind while watching the killer new trailer for The Mind’s Eye, the latest film from Almost Human writer/director Joe Begos that will be released this summer.

Rlj Entertainment acquired The Mind’s Eye for North American distribution back in April, and EW reports that the psychokinetic horror film will hit theaters, VOD, and iTunes on August 5th.

Written and directed by Begos, The Mind’s Eye stars Graham Skipper, Lauren Ashley Carter, John Speredakos, Noah Segan, Jeremy Gardner, Matt Mercer, Brian Morvant, Josh Ethier, Sam Zimmerman, and Larry Fessenden.

Synopsis: “Zack Connors and Rachel Meadows were born with incredible psychokinetic capabilities. When word of their supernatural talents gets out, they find themselves the prisoners of Michael Slovak, a deranged doctor intent on harvesting their powers. After a daring escape, they are free from his sinister institution, but the corrupt doctor will stop at nothing to track them down so that he may continue to siphon their gifts for his own use.”

Enter ‘The Mind’s Eye’ in First Trailer For Joe Begos’ Psychedelic Body Horror Film

16 June 2016 12:35 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Writer-director Joe Begos’ (Almost Human) second feature The Mind’s Eye looks to be a psychedelic body-horror picture by way of David Cronenberg with the modern, retro-fitted stylings of Jason Eisener (Hobo with a Shotgun). From the synthetic score and low-light neon cinematography, the film tells the tale of Zach Connors and Rachel Meadows, a duo with psychokinetic abilities who are hunted by a deranged doctor that desires to drain their supernatural abilities for his own gain.

Begos received Best Horror Director at Fantastic Fest 2015, and the film was an official 2015 selection of Tiff. It has received mostly positive reviews, with some critics calling it a midnight B-movie homage to De Palma and Cronenberg. The trailer escalates into a rapid bombardment of violence and mayhem that should interest genre fans.

L.A. Film Festival Review: Beyond The Gates

10 June 2016 7:26 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Trends are cyclical, in horror and collecting. We see resurgence of things long thought dead. Vinyl has been selling strong, and within the collector community, VHS culture is humming along. One of those pieces of VHS that is due for a return is the Vcr board game craze. Whether it be the Nightmare series or others, there were many interactive games that included a fold out game board, playing pieces, where you followed along to the video prompts. Capturing that spirit, we now have Jackson Stewart’s homage to all things past, Beyond The Gates.

Following the 7 month disappearance of their father, two brothers, John (Chase Williamson) and Gordon (Graham Skipper), must clean up their father’s now closed VHS video store (filmed at the Awesome Los Angeles staple, Eddie Brandt’s) and home. While cleaning and boxing up the endless amount of VHS tapes,  they discover a game that may just be the Jumanji for the Vcr horror game culture. The brothers, along with Gordon’s girlfriend (Brea Grant) decide to play the game, finding that it may lead to uncovering the mystery of their missing father.

The film is cast perfectly, as both Skipper and Williamson have proven themselves time and time again as competent adversaries to weird shit. Skipper in Almost Human, The Mind’S Eye and Williamson in John Dies At The End. Both actors fit right in as things get crazy in numerously sinister ways. Challenged by the game to find a series of missing keys that could possibly lead to uncovering where their father could be, the three of them are faced with everything dealing with one hell of an odd shop keeper (played excellently by Re-animator: The Musical‘s Jesse Merlin), a tough and abusive bully played by The Signal‘s Justin Welborn and in a pretty funny role, Contracted‘s Matt Mercer.

Brea Grant is the ultimate maiden character. She’s beautiful, but also sweet, caring, and believable, giving us all the more reason to care for her well-being. Genre favorite Barbara Crampton does a stellar job as the menacing game host, delivering a creepy line delivery throughout while also able to maintain an even more diabolic stare as she awaits the player’s next move. It’s awesome to see Crampton tackle so many impressive and entertaining roles since returning in front of the camera in the now fan favorite Adam Wingard film, You’Re Next.

The opening title sequence lets you know upfront what you are getting into as well as we get an almost pornographic display of a VHS tape being slowly inserted into a Vcr, before proceeding to see the unspooling of the tape as it is run lovingly across the magnetic heads. All of this is scored with a synth title by Wojciech Golczewski (We Are Still Here, Late Phases). Golczewski’s score really takes you back to that long forgotten era and the combination between the music and the almost Argento-like lighting makes Beyond The Gates one of the most authentic homages around. Yes, the ’80s love is quite strong for Stewart and company.

Beyond The Gates does a great job of keeping a quick pace and doesn’t over stay it’s welcome. A helluva fun ride as we follow John and Gordon’s game, and an entertaining adventure full of shocks, surprises and a film that will stay in your head for days. »

Glasgow Frightfest: ‘The Mind’s Eye’ Review

27 February 2016 7:29 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Graham Skipper, Lauren Ashley Carter, John Speredakos, Larry Fessenden, Noah Segan, Matt Mercer, Michael A. LoCicero, Jeremy Gardner, Patrick M. Walsh, Brian Morvant, Josh Ethier, Susan T. Travers | Written and Directed by Joe Begos

Back in 2014 first-time director Joe Begos exploded on the horror scene with Almost Human, an alien abduction movie drenched in 80s flair. Now he’s back with his second feature, The Mind’s Eye, another film that’s not afraid to wear its love of 80s horror on its sleeve. In this case referencing the work of David Cronenberg and Brian De Palma, and films like the Scanners franchise, Carrie and the classic telekinetic fear flick The Fury.

Confession time: I’m not the biggest fan of David Cronenberg’s Scanners. If not for exploding head scene and the final battle between Revok and Vale, the film would be a very dull futuristic thriller. However »

13 Must-See Genre Movies of 2016

22 January 2016 2:14 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Demonic activity, skinheads, and psychopaths: these are the words one might use to describe the upcoming genre films of 2016. From a possessed painter, to a devilish leg wound, to full-on war waged within the confines of a futuristic apartment complex, blood flies and fingers point in what looks to be one of the most intense, purposely-paced and experimental years for independent films to date.

Traces of David Cronenberg's Videodrome and Scanners, Stuart Rosenberg's The Amityville Horror, Stanley Kubrick's The Shining, and Nicholas Hytner's The Crucible can be found within these electrifying new entries from promising, emerging artists, proving that pulling from the past can wind up making a project feel fresh and new.

Although many of the films carry similar traits and themes like directorial debuts, single set locations, cult activity, and the ever-present presence of the devil's unholy spirit, each of these features is unique in its own persona. »
