Watch: Dystopian Sci-Fi Short Film 'The Listener' by Michael Gilhooly

"Those of you who continue to meet targets will be safe." After all the new trailers this week, why not take a look at a dystopian sci-fi short from an up-and-coming filmmaker named Michael Gilhooly. The short is titled The Listener and stars actor Amit Shah as a "Listener" named Jeremy in a dystopian future where everyone is constantly under surveillance (not so far off from modern reality as is anyway). His loyalty to the Directorate is challenged when a charming new coworker arrives. This is a longer short than usual, running at about 22 minutes, but it's worth it to get fully invested in this story. And for those complaining about the short films we post not having much of a story, this one should be more than satisfactory. Take a look below. Description from the official site: In a society where everyone is monitored, Jeremy is an ambitious young

DVD Review – Howl (2015)

Howl, 2015.

Directed by Paul Hyett.

Starring Ed Speleers, Holly Weston, Elliot Cowan, Amit Shah, Sam Gittins, Duncan Preston, Sean Pertwee and Rosie Day.

Synopsis:

A train full of passengers must band together to fight off a pack of bloodthirsty wolf-like creatures.

Two new werewolf movies released in the same month? Must be close to Halloween. But while William Brent Bell’s Wer is an intelligent twist on the werewolf legend, Paul Hyett’s Howl goes for a more traditional approach. Not that there’s anything wrong with traditional because after seeing so many filmmakers try something new with the formula over the past few years it’s actually quite refreshing to have a new film that goes back to basics and doesn’t try to be anything other than a creepily good time.

There are two main positives that work in Howl’s favour, namely relatable (but not necessarily likeable

Grimmfest 2015: ‘Howl’ Review

Stars: Ed Speleers, Holly Weston, Elliot Cowan, Amit Shah, Sam Gittins, Shauna Macdonald, Duncan Preston, Ania Marson, Rosie Day, Calvin Dean, Sean Pertwee, Brett Goldstein | Written by Mark Huckerby, Nick Ostler | Directed by Paul Hyett

It’s hard to believe that it’s been three years since special effects man Paul Hyett exploded onto the horror landscape with The Seasoning House, a brutal look at the horrors of war that divided audiences with its harrowing depictions of rape, torture and murder. Cut to 2015 and Hyett returns to the directors chair for Howl. A traditional… werewolf movie? And one penned by a writing duo who, until now, have been best known for their work in children’s television, in particular the likes of Thomas & Friends, Tree Fu Tom and Peter Rabbit. It sounds like an odd combination, one that shouldn’t work. But it does.

It works because whilst Howl may

Joe, a young mild-mannered train guard, is bullied by his overbearing boss into working one more shift on the last train leaving London. It’s a dark and stormy night and the passengers a meager bunch. His only consolation is that he’ll be riding alongside beautiful trolley girl Ellen.

Howl, 2015

Directed by Paul Hyett

Starring Ed Speleers, Holly Weston, Elliot Cowan, Amit Shah, Sam Gittins, Shauna Macdonald, Duncan Preston, Ania Marson, Rosie Day, Calvin Dean and Sean Pertwee

Synopsis:

When passengers on a train are attacked by a creature, they must band together in order to survive until morning.

Forget Snakes on a Plane, this is Werewolves on a Train in Paul Hyett’s brilliant slice of British horror that packs gore, shocks and plenty of scares.

Train guard Joe has been forced to work on a very-late running service across the countryside from London Waterloo by his newly-promoted idiot supervisor. Being that it’s a late train, its passengers consist of an elderly couple going home, a couple of “youths”, a drunken football fan complete with kebab (and the runs), and a couple of hard-working business folk who can’t seem to leave the office behind them.

New trailer for ITV’s Jekyll & Hyde

ITV has released a new trailer for Charlie Higson’s upcoming action fantasy series Jekyll & Hyde, which sees Tom Bateman (Da Vinci’s Demons) leading the cast as Robert Jekyll and his alter-ego Mr. Hyde. Check it out below…

Set in 1930’s London at a time of Hollywood glamour, aerodynamic cars and monster movies, the drama will pay homage to the Stevenson novel, and focus on the young, attractive, troubled hero, Robert Jekyll, the grandson of the original doctor. At the heart of the drama is Robert Jekyll’s quest to discover his real identity, his true family history and the nature of his ‘curse’. Jekyll transforms into Hyde in moments of extreme anger, stress and when his or the lives of others are threatened.

Higson’s Jekyll is a young, sensitive and naïve man of intellect and morality, a well meaning if slightly repressed character who slips between his two personas unwillingly.

The Hundred-Foot Journey DVD Review

Director: Lasse Hallström

Starring: Helen Mirren, Om Puri, Manish Dayal, Charlotte Le Bon, Amit Shah

Certificate: PG

Running Time: 122 Minutes

In The Hundred-foot Journey director Lasse Hallström explores how opening a new food-related business in a small French village causes plenty of drama, just like in his film Chocolat (2000). Based on the novel by Richard C. Morais, the story centres around the Kadam family from India, who drift around Europe after fleeing from their home and restaurant after it was burnt down. When they eventually arrive in France, they believe their Indian restaurant could work among the traditional French cuisine on offer to the locals but it isn’t an easy ride for Papa (Om Puri) and his family, as they coincidentally set up their restaurant just across from Madame Mallory’s (Helen Mirren) high-class establishment.

The idea of bringing Indian food and culture to France, who are famous all
