‘Standoff’ Review

  • Nerdly
Stars: Thomas Jane, Laurence Fishburne, Ella Ballentine, Jim Watson, John Tench, Laura de Carteret, Ted Atherton, Joanna Douglas | Written and Directed by Adam Alleca

Carter (Jane), a troubled veteran who gets a chance at redemption by protecting a 12 year-old girl from an assassin after she witnesses a murder. Holding a shotgun with a single shell, he engages in physical and psychological warfare in a desperate fight for the girl’s life.

Unsurprisingly, the main premise for the film Standoff is that the film involves a stand-off between the two main characters as they both try to get the upper hand. If done incorrectly, this film has the ability to be incredibly boring. Let’s be honest, with neither party having the upper hand, it doesn’t leave much wiggle room for exciting things to happen. Thankfully, I was in luck and it turned out to be very entertaining. This was

*there are mild spoilers here. Director: Jeff Renfroe. Writers: Jeff Renfroe, Svet Rouskov, Patrick Tarr, and Pascal Trottier. Cast: Laurence Fishburne, Kevin Zegers, Bill Paxton, Charlotte Sullivan and John Tench. The post-apocalyptic film The Colony had its World Premiere in Toronto April 3rd, 2013. This indie title was then released in theatres across Canada in mid-April. Now, this critic has finally seen the film and the wait was mostly worth it. The Colony brings a slightly unique landscape to the post-apocalyptic genre, a frozen wasteland. Instead of nuclear waste or arid deserts, several characters must survive lack of food, illness and the occasional band of roaming cannibals. The plot holes in The Colony are frequent, but the film still manages to be enjoyable. The film's story involves about 40 people living in an underground lair. Above, the world is a frozen landscape, which few can survive. The survivors of a new ice

Jeff Renfroe’s The Colony Delivers its First Post-Apocalyptic Trailer

I’ve been following Jeff Renfroe’s post-apocalyptic monster movie “The Colony” for a while now, and it looks like all that waiting has paid off. Check out the first trailer for the sci-fi/horror film, which stars Laurence Fishburne and Bill Paxton as a pair of bickering old guys that must lead a bunch of young whippersnappers against some cannibal types with humanity at stake. You know, that old thing. The trailer is very revealing, and I’m pretty sure it gives away the movie’s entire three acts, but that seems inevitable these days, right? Fans of post-apocalyptic cannibal movies should be intrigued. Me, I’m just wondering if Bill Paxton will somehow fit in his famous line from “Aliens”. His character certainly looks like he’s prone to freaking out… Forced underground by the next ice age, a struggling outpost of survivors must fight to preserve humanity

Where the Heck is this Going-ness: It is the Dead Hooker In A Trunk Trailer!

Yes, I am stealing the pull-quote from Andrew McQuade over at GoreZone, because that seems to be the vibe in this trailer, despite the very blunt grind-house-ish title.

Ever see a horror movie written and directed by identical twin sister filmmakers?  I am not sure if that is some sort of film nerd fantasy or not, but I am sure that Jen and Sylvia Soska from Vancouver, are looking to splatter their mark on the filmmaking map. They aim to fuck you up, so says Eli Roth.  So this is what the film and TV professionals do in their downtime between contract work for American sci-fi and drama shows.

Set in beautiful Vancouver, four friends set out on an everyday errand and end up in a fight for their lives when they discover the body of a dead hooker left in their trunk.  Lead by a sexy, impulsive Badass (Sylvia Soska
