Tricked | Review

Community Cinema: Verhoeven’s Failed Experiment Confirms Concepts of Authorship

Four years after its premiere in his native Netherlands and a screening at the 2012 Rome Film Festival, Paul Verhoeven’s experimental title Tricked makes its way to Us theaters, available simultaneously streaming exclusively on Fandor. The director playfully refers to the film as 14 ½, referring to Fellini, since ultimately the ambitious endeavor, wherein audience participation was called upon to craft the narrative based on a four page scenario, isn’t quite feature length. Instead, the film includes a behind-the-scenes preface (called Paul’s Experience) documenting the significant pre-production travails, including thousands of scripts sent, none of which were actually used in completion. As such, the project has a rather uneven, cobbled together feel, and seems to prove the concept of the auteur.

Ineke (Ricky Koole) is hosting a birthday bash for her philandering husband Remco (Peter Blok), who has just turned fifty.

App | DVD Review

Receiving a healthy domestic release in native Netherlands and released stateside by Ram Releasing last May, with limited festival play before it (it did show at the neighboring Razor Reel Fantastic Film Festival Bruges) this is a film that will indubitably be remembered as a quaint first-wave exercise in an increased integration of modern technology and cinematic streamlining as a way to increase audience participation. Dutch filmmaker Bobby Boerman’s sophomore film, App, is presented as little more than any number of dressed up J-horror narratives. That’s not to say there isn’t any fun to be had in what serves as the first film to utilize second screen technology, but it’s cheap and shallow fun, to be sure. The rather superficial mystery at the heart of the narrative takes a considerable back seat to the excitement of messages you may receive on your cell phone from the film’s app,

App To Terrorize Your Cellphone and Television Screen this December 30th on DVD

North American distributor Ram Releasing will put Bobby Boerman's App on DVD store shelves, this December 30th. The film received mild praise here, on 28Dla (An App Movie Review).

App Needed a Few More Wrong Turns and Misdirections: A Movie Review

*full disclosure: a DVD screener of this film was provided by Ram Releasing. Director: Bobby Boermans. Writer: Robert Arthur Jansen. Cast: Hannah Hoekstra, Isis Cabolet, Robert de Hoog and Alex Hendrickx. App is a Dutch language film that was just released in North America. The film is a smallish horror feature, which focuses on a malicious cell' phone app'. One protagonist's life goes into a downward spiral as technology rears its ugly head, everywhere. This feature asks an interesting question; how far has technology infiltrated modern life? But, the film is really more focused on delivering a standard horror feature. In the end, App is an above average feature, which blends genres and most horror fans will find something entertaining here. The story can be seen in the film's trailer. Essentially, Anna (Hanna Hoekstra) is a failing college student, who likes to party. At one of her celebrations, a mysterious

App of My Eye: Second Screen Technology Gets Double Dutch in Gimmicky Thriller

A film that will indubitably be remembered as a quaint first-wave exercise in an increased integration of modern technology and cinematic streamlining as a way to increase audience participation, Dutch filmmaker Bobby Boerman’s sophomore film, App, is presented as little more than any number of dressed up J-horror narratives. That’s not to say there isn’t any fun to be had in what serves as the first film to utilize second screen technology, but it’s cheap and shallow fun, to be sure. The rather superficial mystery at the heart of the narrative takes a considerable back seat to the excitement of messages you may receive on your cell phone from the film’s app, tuned to receive audio cues as the film plays and display extra content that those without the app are unable to see.

Black Out Review

Guy Ritchie, the stylish Brit behind the hyperkinetic one-two punch that was Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch, hasn’t made a great crime comedy since 2008′s RocknRolla (blame Warner Bros., which keeps throwing Ritchie big fish like Sherlock Holmes and The Man from U.N.C.L.E.). It might be a while until the auteur bounces back with another instant classic but in the meantime, at least we have Black Out, a mostly clever and entertaining Dutch flick that mimics Ritchie’s furious editing technique, convoluted storytelling and zany characters so meticulously that it almost managed to convince me it was doing something original.

That’s a diss, sure, but originality has never been a requirement in cinema; on the contrary, it’s so rare that we wildly applaud whenever we do see it. And to be fair, Ritchie stood on the shoulders of other filmmakers

Latest One-Sheet and Trailer from Interactive Dutch Feature App

Whilst encouraging those selfish enough to sit using their mobile phones in cinemas isn't something we usually adhere to at the Horror Asylum it seems that Bobby Boermans' new Dutch horror 'App' will be. The movie has been made along with an accompanying app, Iris, which is equipped with sonic technology that triggers additional content during the showing. Content that includes off-screen text messages between characters, an alternative angle in a scene, and more. J-horror sequel 'Sadako 3D 2' tried something similar last year which turned phones into vibrating, flashing and noisy little accompaniments to the main feature. 'App' stars the sexy Hannah Hoekstra, Isis Cabolet, Robert de Hoog, Alex Hendrickx and Matthijs van de Sande Bakhuyzen. Check out the poster and new trailer below....

Horror Is Child’S Play – Don Mancini’S Curse Of Chucky (World Premiere)

A rarity among genre franchises, the Child’S Play series (begun in 1988) has retained the sure-handed guidance of original screenwriter/creator Don Mancini throughout killer doll Chucky’s decades’-long reign of horror. Mancini, who will be hosting our “scar-studded” world premiere, graduated to the director’s chair with 2004’s Seed Of Chucky, after having co-written or written every entry in the series. His longevity with the project is, of course, matched by the fiendish voiceover work by

A New Horror Film Is Making Your Cell Phone Part Of The Movie

Talking, littering and sexual debauchery have long since taken a back row seat to cell phone use as the most annoying insult to moviegoers, many of whom are trying to escape a world so addicted to phones in the first place. The .Please Silence Your Cell Phones. message before the feature starts seems like the most instinctively redundant demand besides the .Employees Must Wash Hands. restaurant standard, but people still don.t know when to give it a rest. A new Dutch thriller, however, is looking to make cell phones an integral part of the viewing experience. The Dutch production company 2CFilm, in cooperation with Service2Media, created an app for Bobby Boerman.s App , which Variety reports will allow for an interactive experience while watching the film in real time.
