The Conquest Begins in Trailers For The Alien Invasion Thriller Occupation

"We fight or we die."

Saban Films has released a couple of new trailers for the sci-fi alien invasion thriller Occupation. The story centers on a small group of people from a small town who band together to fight off an alien invasion and try to survive. Here's the synopsis:

After their small Australian country town is annihilated by an overwhelming airborne attack, a group of local civilians evade capture and discover they are now among the last remaining survivors of an extraterrestrial invasion engulfing the entire planet. As humanity falls under world-wide occupation, they form a home-grown army to fight back against vastly superior enemy forces. On the frontlines of the battle for Earth, they are our last hope.

Occupation obviously doesn't look like the best sci-fi film, but I know there's an audience out there that enjoys watching movies like this. This one looks like it could have some fun moments.

New Us Trailer for Action-Packed Oz Alien Invasion Film 'Occupation'

"We fight, or we die." Saban Films has released a brand new official Us trailer for the Australian sci-fi alien invasion thriller titled Occupation, from writer/director Luke Sparke. We posted the international trailer for this a few weeks ago and this looks even worse. The film is about a small group of town residents who have to band together after a devastating ground invasion from alien invaders. As they struggle to survive, they realize they must stay one step ahead of their attackers, and work together for a chance to strike back. The big Aussie cast includes Temuera Morrison, Stephany Jacobsen, Dan Ewing, Rhiannon Fish, Zachary Garred, Izzy Stevens, Charles Terrier, Charles Mesure, Felix Williamson, Jacqueline McKenzie, and Bruce Spence. This seems like another awful Red Dawn remake of sorts, and this trailer doesn't even show the aliens like the other trailer. Probably because they know they look bad?

Before Fury Road! The Road Warrior Midnights This Weekend at The Tivoli

“My life fades. The vision dims. All that remains are memories. I remember a time of chaos. Ruined dreams. This wasted land. But most of all, I remember the Road Warrior…”

The Road Warrior plays midnights this weekend (April 27th and 28th ) at the Tivoli Theater (6350 Delmar Boulevard) as part of their Reel Late at the Tivoli Midnight series.

In Mad Max(1979), director George Miller showed us a eerie Australia on the verge on some kind of apocalypse. Biker gangs roamed the desert roads raping and pillaging as they pleased, while a small group of cops did what little they could to keep law and order. Small communities still existed, shops were operational, and institutions still had some sense of organization, but when The Road Warrior picks up the story, civilization as we know it is gone, and thugs in fetish biker gear do as they like.

Winchester review

Helen Mirren headlines Winchester, a horror movie that soon loses its way...

Not to be confused with Supernatural brothers Sam and Dean, Winchester is the new film from Michael and Peter Spierig, the duo behind Daybreakers and Predestination, but also last year's Jigsaw. It's a Hammer-style haunted house ghost story that finds Helen Mirren on unusual, scenery chewing form as Sarah Winchester, the widowed heiress to an empire of violence.

Subtitled as The House That Ghosts Built in some territories, this Australian-American co-production finds a very Hammer-esque character, doctor Eric Price (Jason Clarke), visiting Sarah's enormous mansion in San Jose, California. He's there to evaluate her mental health on behalf of her board of directors at the Winchester Repeating Arms company, after she has thrown herself and a lot of her money continuing construction on the mansion's eccentric architecture in order to stave off vengeful spirits. Dr. Price, a former soldier,

Movie Review – Blue World Order (2017)

Blue World Order, 2017.

Directed by Che Baker and Dallas Bland.

Starring Jake Ryan, Billy Zane and Bruce Spence.

Synopsis:

The film is set in a post-apocalyptic world in which civilisation has crumbled. A massive electromagnetic pulse has killed all children on the planet with the exception of Molly (Billie Rutherford), the daughter of Jake Slater (Jake Ryan).

Post-apocalypse films have been a popular B-movie staple for decades now. They’ve always stemmed from the impending threat of nuclear armageddon in real life. During the cold war we had a spate of Mad Max inspired post-end of the world exploitation films. Not that they have particularly slowed down, but after the reasonable success of Mad Max: Fury Road, as well as immensely popular TV shows like The Walking Dead or video games like The Last of Us, there has been a significant rise in direct to video (on demand) post apocalyptic thrillers.

20 great movie monsters who only appear in one scene

Padraig Cotter Nov 18, 2016

From The Cabin In The Woods and Ghostbusters through to Pan's Labyrinth: the movie monsters that make a huge impression in their one scene.

Screen monsters come in all shapes and sizes, from the bizarre beauty of Giger’s Alien all the way through to the very human evil of Seven’s John Doe. Audiences have a strange relationship with these creatures, being both repelled and fascinated by them at the same time. This push/pull attraction has been going on since the birth of cinema, and it’s likely to continue for many years to come.

Sometimes the most enduring creatures are the ones that pop up, steal the movie and then swiftly exit stage left. It could be their unique design or the impact they have on the story, but for the monsters included here, all they needed was one scene to impact on our collective nightmares.

‘Backtrack’ Review

Stars: Adrien Brody, Sam Neill, Robin McLeavy, Bruce Spence, Jenni Baird, Anna Lise Phillips, Chloe Bayliss, Olga Miller, Michael Whalley, Malcolm Kennard, Matthew Sunderland, Suzie Steen | Written and Directed by Michael Petroni

Don’t look now, but a man begins to experience strange visions following the death of his child. After realising that the majority of his patients are ghosts (like a reverse Sixth Sense) psychologist Peter Bower (Adrien Brody) heads to his spooky old hometown in the hope that he can uncover the mystery behind it all.

Moody, intense Brody is the main draw for this low-key supernatural thriller, its effective Gothic vibe making it stand out from the chaff like Nicolas Cage’s Pay the Ghost (I say that with love) or the litany of 101 Films releases just like it (said with less love, but there’s still some). The level of class extends to the presence of one Sam Neill,

Movie Review – Backtrack (2015)

Backtrack, 2015.

Directed by Michael Petroni.

Starring Adrien Brody, Sam Neill, Robin McLeavy, Bruce Spence and Jenni Baird.

Synopsis:

Psychologist Peter Bower’s life is thrown into turmoil when he discovers that the patients he has been seeing are ghosts. Risking his own sanity, Peter delves into his past to uncover a terrifying secret which only he can put right.

Adrien Brody is the youngest performer to ever win the award for Best Actor at the Oscars, but like the Halle Berry’s and Geena Davis’s of this world, Brody struggled to capitalise on this success, appearing in mostly forgettable movies that failed to make use of his potential. You probably have some idea where I might be going with this…

An Australian supernatural mystery starring Brody sounds like it should be one of the horror highlights of the year, particularly in the wake of The Babadook’s success, but
