The 7th annual Arizona Underground Film Festival will screen a smorgasbord of cult flicks, horror movies, comedies and provocative documentaries on September 19-27 at The Screening Room in Tucson, Az.

Exclusive ‘Killers’ Clip Prepares For An Execution

4 September 2014 11:24 AM, PDT | bloody-disgusting.com | See recent Bloody-Disgusting.com news »

‘Killers’ Review

1 September 2014 11:17 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Oka AntaraKazuki KitamuraRin Takanashi, Ray Sahetapy, Epy Kusnandar, Luna Maya, Tara Basro, Mei Kurokawa | Written by Takuji Ushiyama, Timo Tjahjanto | Directed by Kimo Stamboel, Timo Tjahjanto

When presented with a film proudly stating “from the producers of The Raid” you’d expect it to be similar, but with Killers that thought would be wrong.  This isn’t a bad thing though, the subject matter makes up for it.  A psychological battle of wits between two serial killers from different backgrounds being drawn together through the lust for murder is an interesting concept, what will happen when they finally meet?

Bayu Aditya (Oka Antara) is a loser in life, a failed investigative journalist and separated from his wife he finds himself pushed into murder when defending himself from a mugging.  Nomura Shuhei (Kazuki Kitamura) is a charismatic good-looking man in his early thirties and more importantly successful.  Behind »

The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – September 1st 2014

1 September 2014 3:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Believe it or not, films and television programmes added to Netflix and Amazon do have a tendency to expire and no longer be there after a while; this isn’t as publicised as when the titles in question are added though. So by the time you read this there are around 50 titles disappearing from Netflix.

If you have ever wanted to watch the 2002 version of The Count of Monte Cristo then you have probably missed your chance by now. What this does mean however is that probably next week Netflix will have added a whole raft of new stuff, I say new but it will probably be a mixture of catalogue and stuff from the last year. I know that the underrated Enders Game and the superior Hunger Games: Catching Fire is due there in September, I just don’t know when.

Exclusive New Nsfw Killers Clip Gets Brutal

19 August 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

The Mo Brothers' latest blood-soaked slice of mayhem, Killers, hits UK DVD and Blu-ray on September 1; and to celebrate we have a rather gruesome new Nsfw clip to get the fires burning. Seriously – this one brings the pain!

Synopsis

Nomura is a good looking and stylish man in his early thirties who lives a successful life in Tokyo, Japan. Girls are drawn to him, something he uses to his advantage as none of them realise the sinister truth behind the clean-cut façade.

Nomura has been leaving a legacy of violent murders that he immortalises through video clips posted on a public video website. He thrives off of the fact that millions are witnessing his work through the virally spread videos.

Thousands of miles away from him, in a whole different world, lives Bayu, a disgraced investigative journalist living in a violent and unstable Jakarta, Indonesia. As Bayu’s life »

Philadelphia's The Awesome Festival becomes Bruce Campbell Horror Film Festival

1 August 2014 11:50 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Philadelphia's Awesome Fest sounds… well… awesome. To be clear, though, it appears this is an evolution of the already-existent event, which is now being called The Bruce Campbell Horror Film Festival. As you would expect with a name like that, Bruce Campbell will indeed be there as part of the four-day event in Rosemont, Il, where they'll also be screening a slate of horror titles curated by Scott Weinberg, horror maven and the resident critic at the just-killed FEARnet. They'll also have panels, and they've got some great ones planned. Overall, it looks like a really cool chance to see a fistful of the best of what indie horror has going on right now with bonuses that simply make the weekend better. From August 21 to August 24, you'll be able to check out some great films. How? Well, here's how they put it: Tickets for All screenings are free to attend »

Our Guesses for Films to Play Fantastic Fest 2014

31 July 2014 2:19 PM, PDT | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

It’s that time of year again, Summer is coming to an end and before you know it, Austin’s Fantastic Fest 2014 will be here. This year is the 10th anniversary of the festival. However, as of now, many people are unsure if it will return to South Lamar where it has taken place every year with exception of 2013. The South Lamar location closed in the Winter of 2012 and the land has gone through redevelopment. We have word via Twitter that it will be at S. Lamar but we won’t know for sure until the announcement is made.

While we still are waiting on the official announcement of the opening night film and all the waves of programming, like every year, we wanted to get our predictions for what may play at the festival out of the way. There is really no way of picking every film that could play the festival. »

Asano Tadanobu and Kitamura Kazuki Expand ‘Parasyte’ Cast

16 July 2014 9:07 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Tokyo – Asano Tadanobu (“47 Ronin,” “Thor”) and Kitamura Kazuki (Gareth Evans’ “Killers”) have joined the cast of “Parasyte,” the two-part alien invasion thriller.

The films are backed by leading Japanese studio Toho, which won a bid battle for the rights after New Line Cinema gave up on the project.

Toho has set Yamazaki Takashi as director and Shota Sometani (“Himizu”) to star as a teen whose right arm is invaded by a sentient alien host, while the brains of many fellow humans become completely alien inhabited. The story is based on a hit comic by Iwaki Hitoshi that was serialized from 1990 to 1995 in Kodansha’s “Afternoon” mag and sold nearly 11 million copies in ten paperback editions

Asano and Kitamura are among eight new supporting cast members, along with Higashihide Masahiro, Yoki Miho, Kunimura Jun, Arai Hirofumi, Pierre Taki and Omori Nao.

Toho will release the first part on Nov. 29 and the second part in 2015. Also, »

Fantasia Film Festival 2014: Terek’s Most Anticipated Movies

15 July 2014 10:02 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

A number of Sound On Sight editors and contributors are geographically fortunate enough to make the Fantasia Film Festival an annual must-attend event. I have never been to the festival, but have followed it from afar since it landed on my radar years ago when a well-received short film I had a major acting role in called My Sweet Satan, played there.

This year’s lineup of films strikes me as substantially more intriguing than the programs of the last couple of years. Given Fantasia’s staggering breadth of programming spread across multiple weeks, the challenge is in trying to narrow a ‘most anticipated’ list down to just five films. My picks, in alphabetical order, are as follows.

Among the Living

Written and directed by Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury

France, 2014

Also known as Aux yeux des vivants (The Eyes of the Living), the third feature film from the outstanding »

Indonesia set for box office growth

29 May 2014 7:38 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The entry of local conglomerate Lippo Group and Korea’s Cj Cgv into Indonesian exhibition looks set to shake up a market that has huge potential but has so far failed to grow.

The Riady family’s Lippo Group is planning to build 1,000 screens over five years across the country under its Cinemaxx brand – initially focusing on second and third tier cities before moving into major metropolises such as Jakarta.

The huge conglomerate – which has interests in retail, media, real estate, hospitality and healthcare – is well placed to expand Indonesia’s exhibition infrastructure as it owns shopping malls and has the deep pockets and political connections necessary for the job.

In recent months it has been signing deals with technology providers such as Masterimage 3D, Dolby Atmos, Gdc and Barco and is also developing its own giant screen brand MegaMaxx. “Our goal is to offer state-of-the-art technology with first-class amenities,” said Cinemaxx »

Now that The Raid 2 and Killers are out in the wild, the talents behind those two awesome slices of Indonesian action are collaborating on the dark action thriller The Night Comes For Us, where things are shaping up very nicely indeed.
