Secret Cinema: The Eastern Oregon Film Festival’s Remarkable 5th Edition

Unlike nearly everywhere else in the culture, bigger is not necessarily better at the Eastern Oregon Film Festival. It’s a slender event in a small town. Eleven features and 21 shorts across three days and two venues. Still, they don’t call this stretch of fully enclosed valley “La Grande” for nothing. Despite only containing about 12,000 souls, this mountainous hamlet, like Ian Clark and Benjamin Morgan’s program, leaves you plenty of room to explore. The festival opened on a Thursday night in late February, commencing with a dinner for its supporting members in the town’s recently renovated arts center. Over beer, […]

Eastern Oregon Film Festival 2014 to Host Filmmaker Showcase

The Eastern Oregon Film Festival, which runs from February 20 to 22 in La Grande, Or, is one of those great regional film festivals that you feel lucky to stumble upon. Brandon Harris attended Eoff last year and called it a “hidden gem” in his report. This year, co-director of programming Ian Clark, who was one of our “25 New Faces” back in 2012, graciously invited Filmmaker to program a showcase, which will feature Eddie Mullins’ droll slacker comedy Doomsdays (a 2013 Best Film Not Playing selection) and “Qasim,” the latest episode from High Maintenance by our 2013 “New Faces” Katja Blichfeld […]

FEARnet Movie Review: 'The Facility'

FEARnet Movie Review: 'The Facility'
As is often the case with interesting indie horror films, The Facility proves that you don't need much to deliver something worthwhile. Here we have a straightforward story that offers A) a simple premise, B) an effective location, and C) a handful of characters worth watching for 90 minutes. The Facility never comes close to re-inventing bio-horror themes or suspense thrillers, but there's always something to be said for a movie that knows what it is, knows what it wants to do, and gets it all done with some craftsmanship and efficiency.

  The plot is admirably simple stuff: a group of volunteers are gathered at a (large, creepy, and isolated) medical facility so they can test a new drug in exchange for some decent money. Except, whoops, this experimental medication causes psychosis and spurts of harrowing rage fits that should seem a little familiar to the 28 Days Later fans -- and

DVD Review - Bringing Up Bobby (2011)

Bringing Up Bobby, 2011.

Written and Directed by Famke Janssen.

Starring Milla Jovovich, Bill Pullman, Rory Cochrane, Marcia Cross and Spencer List.

Synopsis:

Despite con artist Olive’s (Milla Jovovich) aspirations for a better future for her son, her arrest sees Good Samaritans Kent (Bill Pullman) and Mary (Marcia Cross) take over his guardianship.

Debut films will inevitably be hindered by flaws; they are unlikely to be perfect. That said two recent directorial feature debuts, Makinov’s Come Out and Play and Ian Clark’s Brit horror The Facility, were full of promise. Look back far enough and the Soska Sisters' Dead Hooker in a Trunk and Robert Rodriguez’s El Mariachi were two debut films that were were rough around the edges yet equally showcased a raw creative talent that could mature with time and experience. There was a sense of inspired energy about these films, infused with an inspired vision.

Exclusive Nsfw Clip From The Facility Gets Flashy

Director Ian Clark's medical horror The Facility is out on DVD in the UK now, not to mention that you can win a copy right here -- so to celebrate we've nabbed an exclusive look at this clinical trial gone haywire that's flashy in more way than one. Again, this is Not Safe For Work!

The Facility stars Alex Reid, Aneurin Barnard, and Steve Evets.

Synopsis:

Seven volunteers – students Carmen, Arif, and Adam; office temp Joni; journalist Katie; estate agent Jerome; and unemployed Derek – arrive at the remote Limebrook Medical Clinic to take part in a clinical trial run by ProSyntrex Pharmaceuticals. In exchange for a fee of £2,000, these human “guinea pigs” have agreed to spend two weeks in isolation testing an experimental new drug known only as Pro9. After settling into the facility, each participant is given a first injection and, following a group dinner, sent to bed.

DVD Review: 'The Facility'

  • CineVue
★★☆☆☆ Screened as part of last year's Eiff and Film4 FrightFest lineups, British director Ian Clark's low-budget debut The Facility (2012) (formerly known as 'Guinea Pigs') now finds its way onto DVD, having just missed out on a theatrical release. A group of eight strangers come together at an isolated research facility to undergo a phase one medical trial for an untested drug called 'Pro-9'. Most of the participants are there for the money, with some having made such clinical trials their primary source of income. Katie (Nia Roberts) is a journalist there to cover the procedure for a piece she's currently writing - entitled 'The Last Resort'.

If Katie was looking to discover the depths that people will go to when faced with extreme hardship, then she certainly gets what she came for, as she and the others soon encounter a series of peculiar side effects from

The Facility DVD Review

In medical trials around 99% of the subjects suffer no actual side effects from the drugs that are pumped into them, but what about the other 1%? That’s what The Facility takes as its core idea and although it’s not a true story, it is presented as if it’s a reconstruction of an actual event.

This is an area which horror has largely stayed away from but the pharmaceutical industry is presumably ripe for exploitation. The trouble with The Facility is writer and director Ian Clark forgets some essential elements required for this kind of story which render it fairly ineffective.

We start with several members of the public making their way to a building in the middle of nowhere (or the British countryside). We get to know the bare minimum about Joni (temp worker), Morty (unemployed professional guinea pig), Jed (alpha male estate agent), Arif (shy and troubled

The Facility (2012) Movie Review

Award winning short film writer director Ian Clark (“Jenny and the Worm”) makes his feature debut with the horror thriller “The Facility”, which arrives now on region 2 DVD via eOne Momentum, having played various fests under the name “Guinea Pigs”. A claustrophobic, low budget British take on the likes of “28 Days Later”, “The Crazies” and other fast/angry/infected/non-zombie shockers, the film stars a handful of semi-recognisable faces including Alex Reid (“The Descent” plus sequel), Steve Evets (“Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides”) and Oliver Coleman (“The Other Boleyn Girl”). The setup involves 7 unfortunate strangers who volunteer to take part in a clinical drug trial at the inevitably remote Limebrook Medical Clinic. Enticed by a fee of £2000 for 2 weeks in isolation and being injected with the experimental Pro9, they soon find things going very wrong indeed, as one of the group starts to convulse violently and vomit blood before attacking the others.
