Sundance 2017 Review Round-Up: Bushwick, Bitch, and A Ghost Story

30 January 2017 3:47 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

While at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival, I had the opportunity to check out a few films that were just a bit outside the horror realm, including Cary Murnion and Jonathan Milott’s sociopolitical actioner Bushwick, Marianna Palka’s bleak comedy Bitch, and David Lowery’s unforgettable A Ghost Story, and you can read my reviews for these on-the-fringe-of-horror titles right here in one place.

Bushwick: You couldn’t ask for a bigger departure from Milott and Murnion’s previous film, Cooties, than their most recent effort, Bushwick. Their frantically-paced actioner stars Dave Bautista and Brittany Snow as two residents of the New York borough who must fend off an invasion after several red states decide to declare a new civil war on the rest of the country. By giving us very little information on just what is happening throughout Bushwick, co-writers Nick Damici and Graham Reznick keep viewers firmly »

27 January 2017 6:30 PM, PST | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Bushwick. the sophomore effort from Cooties directors Cary Murnion and Jonathan Milott has been picked up by Rlj Entertainment for distribution in the U.S.    The screenplay by was written by Nick Damici (Stakeland and Late Phases) and Graham Reznik (Stakeland, The Innkeepers and House of the Devil). There could not be a more poignant screenplay out there at the moment given the current political climate in the U.S.   On the way to Grandma’s house with a new boyfriend in tow, Lucy (Snow) steps off the subway into an utter bloodbath on the streets of Brooklyn’s Bushwick neighborhood, according to the film’s description. Texas is attempting to secede from the Union, and militia forces have descended upon New York City to claim it as...

Sundance: Dave Bautista-Brittany Snow Thriller ‘Bushwick’ Sold to Rlj Entertainment

27 January 2017 5:10 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rlj Entertainment has bought U.S. theatrical rights to the Dave Bautista-Brittany Snow thriller “Bushwick” for at least $1 million following the film’s premiere at the Sundance Film Festival.

The movie, directed by Cary Murnion and Jonathan Milott (“Cooties”), follows Snow’s character, who discovers that her Brooklyn neighborhood is under attack by black-clad soldiers. Bautista plays an ex-Marine corpsman, who reluctantly helps her fight for survival through a civil war as Texas attempts to secede from the United States of America.

Variety‘s Geoff Berkshire said in his Sundance review, “Even if the low-budget execution is uneven at times, there’s enough snap to the filmmaking, and enough raw power in the premise, to make for solid B-movie excitement. A surprisingly potent performance from professional wrestler (and ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ co-star) Dave Bautista should add to the appeal for a young male audience.”

Sundance 2017 Interview: Co-Directors Jonathan Milott and Cary Murnion Talk Bushwick

27 January 2017 8:59 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Over the weekend, filmmakers Jonathan Milott and Cary Murnion, the team behind the horror comedy Cooties, celebrated the world premiere of their action thriller Bushwick at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival. While in Park City, Daily Dead sat down with the duo to talk about the long road to getting Bushwick made, working with co-stars Dave Bautista and Brittany Snow, and more.

Check out our interview with Milott and Murnion below, and look for more coverage from Sundance 2017 right here on Daily Dead.

Great to speak with you, guys. I’d love to hear about taking that step from Cooties to Bushwick, and what it was with this story that you wanted to explore as filmmakers?

Cary Murnion: It’s funny, because we had started working on Bushwick before Cooties. It was about six or seven years ago when the idea came to us, and we were about to film »

Sundance 2017 Review: Bushwick, A Provocative and Chilling Picture of America in Crisis

25 January 2017 10:30 AM, PST | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Ever since I saw Cooties in 2014 and fought with our founding editor in order to review the film (I lost out, of course) I’ve been anxious to see how Cary Murnion and Jonathan Milott would follow up on their delightfully offbeat take on genre cinema. And over the last few years said founding editor and the partners in his production company helped Milott and Murnion shepherd a high-concept apocalypse piece set in one of the sections of Brooklyn. Bushwick begins with a couple walking in a subway station (I believe locals call them “trains”, but  that’s just one of the faults of New York life), a pleasant enough conversation about nothing in particular. The first sense something interesting is happening is you notice the...

Sundance 2017 Interview: Dave Bautista Talks Bushwick, Guardians Of The Galaxy & His Directorial Aspirations [Part 1]

23 January 2017 11:24 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

As someone who has spent nearly her entire life loving professional wrestling as much as I do the genre world, I was beyond honored to have the opportunity to sit down and speak in-depth with Dave Bautista at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival (which, coincidentally, is his very first festival ever) about his new project Bushwick, which was helmed by Jonathan Milott and Cary Murnion, the duo behind the 2014 horror comedy Cooties.

During our interview, Bautista discussed what initially drew him to the indie project, his contributions to his character Stupe, and how Bushwick reinvigorated his love for indie filmmaking and made him a better actor, too. Dave also chatted about his involvement in the Guardians of the Galaxy films, how he’d love to challenge himself as a director someday, and more.

Look for part 2 of my interview with Bautista soon (in which we dig into the wrestling world more »

Sundance Film Review: ‘Bushwick’

23 January 2017 12:51 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

America on the brink of a second civil war is a timely concept that only got timelier last November, and gritty action-thriller “Bushwick” exploits that frightening “what if” scenario from a boots-on-the-ground perspective. Even if the low budget execution is uneven at times, there’s enough snap to the filmmaking, and enough raw power in the premise, to make for solid B-movie excitement. A surprisingly potent performance from professional wrestler (and “Guardians of the Galaxy” co-star) Dave Bautista should only add to the appeal for a young male audience.

While Bautista will surely be central to any marketing campaign, the focus of the movie is actually grad student Lucy (Brittany Snow), who becomes our avatar into a disconcerting alternate universe in which the Brooklyn neighborhood of Bushwick is under military invasion. After witnessing her boyfriend’s brutal death just outside of an abandoned subway station, Lucy makes her way through »

Sundance 2017: Watch Dave Bautista Battle an Unexpected Enemy in New Clip from Bushwick

18 January 2017 3:18 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Zombie children ran rampant through school halls in their previous film, Cooties, and the threat in Jonathan Milott and Cary Murnion's new movie Bushwick comes from another surprising source. Ahead of the film's upcoming world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, you can watch Dave Bautista fight an intruder in a new clip from Bushwick.

Synopsis: Lucy (Brittany Snow) emerges from a Brooklyn subway to find that her neighborhood is under attack by black-clad military soldiers. An ex-Marine corpsman, Stupe (Dave Bautista), reluctantly helps her fight for survival through a civil war, as Texas attempts to secede from the United States of America.

Directed by Jonathan Milott and Cary Murnion (the duo behind Cooties), Bushwick stars Dave Bautista and Brittany Snow. The movie will have its world premiere at the Sudance Film Festival on January 21st, and we'll be live at Sundance covering Bushwick and many other films beginning later this week. »

Lrm's 10 Most Anticipated Sundance Film Festival Premieres

17 January 2017 10:15 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Later this week, Lrm will be attending this year’s Sundance Film Festival. While the festival tends to be a mixed bag of indie films, some will be picked up for distribution by studios and turned into mainstream hits, others will flounder and be lucky to get a VOD release. Even so, there’s no denying that Sundance is the real beginning of the year for most movie lovers as we’ll be talking about the movies below for the next 12 months.

Last year alone, Sundance held the premieres for The Birth of a Nation, Manchester by the Sea, Captain Fantastic, Love and Friendship, The Hunt for the Wilderpeople, Sing Street and many more films, some that appeared on The Weekend Warrior’s year-end Top 25. One or two of those might even receive Oscar nominations when they’re announced next week on January 24.
