Spotlight on Frightfest 2019: Director Rodman Flender on ‘Eat Brains Love’

Twenty years ago filmmaker Rodman Flender made one of my favourite teen movies Idle Hands. The film is one of my go to Halloween watches; it stars Devon Sawa, Jessica Alba, Seth Green and Vivica A. Fox. The story tells the cautionary tale of a stoner whose hand becomes possessed by an entity intent on killing all his nearest and dearest. Now Flender returns to the teen horror genre for his latest movie Eat Brains Love. The film, based on the book of the same name by Jeff Hart, joins stoner Jake as he unwittingly becomes a zombie after a one-night stand. On the run from some shadowy government types, he finds himself on the run with his girl crush Amanda, whom has also recently become a zombie. Eat Brains Love is a wonderfully quirky film, part Idle Hands, Warm Bodies, and Zombieland, and it just got its UK premiere at Arrow Video Frightfest.

Stars: Tommy Flanagan, Rhyon Nicole Brown, MyAnna Buring, Michael Socha, Tim McInnerny, Gary Oldman, Jessica Alba, Elliot James Langridge, Suki Waterhouse, Sam Hazeldine, Elizabeth Morris, Isabelle Allen, Sally Collett, Sadie Frost, Takako Akashi | Written by Seth Johnson, Elizabeth Morris, Martin Owen | Directed by Martin Owen

Since winning an Oscar for his portrayal of Churchill in Darkest Hour, Gary Oldman has since been affiliated with an alcoholics anonymous-esque group for killers: Killers Anonymous – also the title of his new film!

Opening with what appears to be a killers anonymous meeting, Gary Oldman’s The Man is the host, but he is in hot demand and must call the meeting short. A popular man, The Man finds himself in a London pub conversing with a killer client, in almost a confession-like situation. Sadly, this is the bulk of Gary Oldman in Killers Anonymous.

UK box office preview: will indie titles shine?
New releases include ‘The Souvenir’, ’Mrs Lowry & Son’, and ‘Bait’.

There is a flurry of intriguing indie title releases in the UK this weekend, while the top end of the chart looks like to be largely dominated by holdovers Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood and Angel Has Fallen.

In the indie space, Curzon is handling the release of Joanna Hogg’s fourth feature, The Souvenir, which stars Honor Swinton Byrne and Tom Burke in the story of a young film student who becomes romantically involved with a complicated man in 1980s London. Martin Scorsese was an executive producer

Movie Review – Killers Anonymous (2019)

Killers Anonymous, 2019.

Directed by Martin Owen.

Starring Rhyon Nicole Brown, MyAnna Buring, Michael Socha, Elizabeth Morris, Tommy Flanagan, Elliot James Langridge, Tim McInnerny, Sam Hazeldine, Gary Oldman, Jessica Alba and Suki Waterhouse.

Synopsis:

A group of assassins gather for an impromptu meeting of their support group for killers, following an attempted hit on a high-profile Us senator.

The one thing that Killers Anonymous immediately has in its favour is the best ever use of an “Academy Award Winner” credit on its poster. If there’s an obvious benefit to Gary Oldman’s Oscar win for playing Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour, it’s the veneer of class it adds to the marketing for the array of pile-em-high-sell-em-cheap shlock actioners Oldman still insists on making. Killer Anonymous isn’t the worst of these films, but it’s also one that completely falls apart when it is asked to explain what on Earth is going on.

Hollywood Shuts Out Latinx Actors, Filmmakers (Study)

  • Variety
Hollywood has failed miserably to provide Latinx actors with starring roles in major movies, according to a new study by the USC Annenberg Inclusion Initiative.

To draw its conclusions, the report examined the 100 top grossing movies from 2007 to 2018 and found that only 3% of the films had Latinx actors in lead or co-lead roles. A mere 4.5% of all speaking characters were Latinx. More troubling, there was no meaningful change in representation over the 12-year time period that the study examined.

The paltry representation is also out of step with population statistics and is puzzling given that Latinx audiences see more movies than other ethnic groups. Hispanics comprise 20% of the moviegoing audience and 18% of the U.S. population. Moreover, 77% of U.S. states and territories have Latinx populations greater than the percentage seen in Hollywood films. There would seem to be compelling business reasons to tailor more films around top Latinx talent.

‘Eat Brains Love’ Review: Dir. Rodman Flender [Frightfest 2019]

Eat Brains Love review: Rodman Flender takes us back to the hey day of teen movies with the rather charming tale of teen zombies on the run.

Jake (Jake Cannavale) is a high school stoner with no drive or ambition, other than to try and snag the hottest girl in school Amanda (Angelique Rivera). After a one night stand with a random girl, he isn’t feeling too good. It turns out that he’s becoming a zombie; in this world, the virus is an elaborate Std spread by unprotected sex. His turn coincides with Amanda’s and the pair end up on the run together as another teen, psychic Cass (Sarah Yarkin) and the organisation she works for, the Ncd (Necrotic Control Department), hunt them down.

In 1999 director Rodman Flender made one of the greatest teen movies of the nineties, Idle Hands. The film

Devon Sawa Would Love to Do Idle Hands 2, But It'll Probably Never Happen

Devon Sawa Would Love to Do Idle Hands 2, But It'll Probably Never Happen
Idle Hands is one of those cult classic horror movies which never got a sequel, but if someone in Hollywood wants to make one, star Devon Sawa is on board to return. As time goes on, it certainly seems less and less likely we'll ever seen an official follow-up to the 1999 movie. Still, because other classic movies from the '80s and '90s are often getting modern sequels these days, it's definitely possible.

While Devon Sawa doesn't seem to be holding his breath, he admits he'd love to be a part of it should it one day get the green light.

"I would love that to happen but unfortunately the first one didn't... I think it broke even or something like that, but you never know. You never know."

Directed by Rodman Flender and written by Terri Hughes and Ron Milbauer, Idle Hands stars Sawa as stoner teenager Anton Tobias.

Idle Hands Star Devon Sawa Says He’d Make A Sequel In A Heartbeat

Howdy all. I’m having a crummy day. A repairman spilled gross A/C water on my PC, along with other parts of my mostly-carpeted apartment, and the computer is acting stupid now. I’m trying not to freak out by keeping busy, because, as they say, Idle Hands are the Devil’s playthings.

Speaking of which, I guess Devon Sawa, star of the aforementioned film, needs something to do to keep his fingers moving because he recently expressed a desire to revisit the cult classic. When asked by ComicBook.com about doing another entry, the actor got pretty excited, saying:

“In a heartbeat. If there was one film that I want to do a sequel to that would be the one. Just because that set was, between Elden [Henson], and Seth Green, and Vivica Fox, [Jessica] Alba, Jack Noseworthy, and all those people, it was like summer camp and it was so much fun!

Killers Anonymous: Has the Hollywood hitman had its day?

The besuited assassin seems to only exist in films. Perhaps it’s time to put them out of their misery

The central gimmick of new movie Killers Anonymous is an AA-style support group where various underworld assassins come to “share”. That’s about all it has to bring to this flagging party, other than underlining how utterly divorced the movies’ concept of the “hitman” has become from reality. The world is tragically full of gun violence and targeted assassinations, but the perpetrators are rarely cool international assassins who make a clean shot from a rooftop far away, or walk away from explosions without turning round (thus making it painfully obvious that they’re the culprit!). And yet these characters have become a tiresome fixture of modern moviegoing. Someone needs to take them out.

Where Killers Anonymous assembles a motley group of recovering assassins (including Gary Oldman and Jessica Alba), we

Best of Frightfest: ‘Sin City: A Dame to Kill For’ Dirs. Robert Rodriguez & Frank Miller

Best of Frightfest: As the twentieth anniversary of Arrow Video Frightfest approaches, we at team Thn take a look back at some of the best and brightest films that have screened over the last two decades. Today we look at the divisive Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.

It is no wonder that it can be a little difficult to find people who have a similar amount of affection for the Sin City sequel that they do for the original. Coming out a whole nine years after the 2005 original, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For had been held in production limbo for a frustrating amount of time. While the original certainly has fans and was deemed a success critically and commercially, there’s no denying that the nine year gap was never going to do the sequel any favours. And while A Dame to Kill For certainly isn

Kj Apa is revealing who his teenage crush is—and will always be. It turns out that Jessica Alba is the A-lister who stole the actor's heart when he was just a teenage boy.
