Note: With Sequence Break finally hitting DVD this week, here’s a reposting of our review of the film from its Fantasia screening last summer.

The two quickly become romantically entwined, but their budding romance is slowly threatened by a mysterious game that seems to be drawing the two deeper and deeper into its void of slime and Cronenbergian horror. Amid the strange occurrences, a cryptic vagabond also appears, lurking around the arcade workshop at night. The dilapidated madman shouts about doom and destruction as the couple cling to the remnants of their normal lives. Oz soon finds himself facing off

First Trailer for Drone Police Dystopian Future Film 'Hover' from Syfy

"Drones - those things are evil." Syfy Films has debuted a new official trailer for an interesting sci-fi film titled Hover, about a drone-filled future where A.I. drones operate as police to manage the few humans left after a deadly, catastrophic drought. Finally, we have the one of the first ever films about evil drones! Well, there's probably been a few others, but now they've made a cheesy Syfy one about bad police drones in a dystopian future. Hover stars Cleopatra Coleman, who also wrote the screenplay, and features Shane Coffey, Craig muMs Grant, Fabianne Therese, Rhoda Griffis, Leo Fitzpatrick, Beth Grant, and Rhonda Johnson Dents. This unfortunately doesn't look that good, surprise surprise from Syfy, but it is still an interesting concept for a film. And they're actually giving it a theatrical release anyway. Take a look. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Matt Osterman's Hover,

2017 has been, at least for me, a fantastic year for movies. There has been some great films in the cinema, on DVD and VOD and the film festivals we’ve covered have been jam-packed with quality movies. Which makes it Very hard to narrow down a list of the Top 10 of the year!

So, with that being said, I’ve decided that this year I’d split my picks into two distinct lists – the ten best films I saw in cinemas, be it at the local multiplex or at film festivals; and the ten best direct-to-market titles of the year, be they DVD or VOD.

Up first, my Top 10 picks of the cinematic releases of 2017 – in the order I saw them… And yes, even under this criteria, it’s still hard to pin down Just a Top 10!

Fantasia Review: ‘Sequence Break’ is Cronenberg Without the Clarity

Introversion and high anxiety are real and can be triggered by the tiniest of things or the lack thereof. Oz (Chase Williamson) has struggled with both his entire life, that insecurity in social situations driving him towards the world of videogames. The joy of solitude playing them and being good at them brought him into a society of like-minded individuals and ultimately a career as mechanic to dinosaurs of derelict arcades past. Was he happy? Sure. Things could always be better, but isn’t that true for everyone? Routine might propel his actions — sleep, work, beer, and repeat — but it’s that type of monotony that keeps him safe. To take a chance on more would risk his falling apart completely. Unfortunately for him, change eventually comes for us all.

Sequence Break Review [Fantasia 2017]

Graham Skipper’s Sequence Break is a digital rabbit hole; an abyss of frothy goop slathered atop rubberized effects. Its very title foreshadows existential conflict, while an arcade kaleidoscope projects Skipper’s binary obsessions. Ideas emerge from Cronenbergian pools of coated wiring, heavily reminiscent of Videodrome visuals and paranoid shades of eXistenZ. Sci-fi psychedelics zap homemade Asteroid designs only to mask dimensional rifts that borrow from Under The Skin‘s vast nothingness. How do you break the “sequence” of life? Answers tend to vary, with Skipper’s latest being a ponderous retro purgatory worth wallowing in.

Chase Williamson stars as Oz (short for Osgood), a shy arcade tinkerer who brings busted-up cabinets back from the virtual dead – but not for much longer. Jerry (Lyle Kanouse) has to close shop, disrupting Oz’s safe engineering bubble. That’s when he meets Tess (Fabianne Therese), a “nerdy” girl who shows immediate romantic interest.

Sequence Break: A young man finds himself inexplicably drawn to a video arcade game in this head-spinning science-fiction thriller. Sequence Break Review

Graham Skipper starred in last year’s Beyond the Gates; this year he steps behind the camera with Sequence Break. Starring his Beyond the Gates co-star, Chase Williamson, Sequence Break moves from a possessed VHS board game to a sinister and likely sentient arcade game.

Williamson plays Oz, a lonely young man who spends his days fixing arcade games and his nights playing those games, whilst all the time dreaming of creating his own game. Sadly, his boss reveals that business isn’t doing so well and that the shop will be closing up. At exactly the same time, a new and mysterious game is dropped off and it seems to have a strange hold over Oz. Also at the same time, Oz meets Tess (Fabianne Therese

Oscar Pre-Parties 2017: Inside Alfre Woodard’s Sistahs Soiree, Chanel, Bulgari & More
There is always a lot to celebrate during Oscar week, but many of this year’s special occasions toasted to something in particular: a historical year for Oscar nominations by the Academy. Diversity and inclusion was front and center for celebrations throughout the week, from Alfre Woodard’s Sistahs Soiree, to Common’s pre-Oscar dinner (pictured above), to African-American publications Ebony and Essence toasting to black Hollywood at their respective fetes.

Women were also a part of the conversation. While the landmark moment for people of color was applauded, the ladies in the industry were still pushing for progress at the Women in Film’s annual cocktail reception, which sprinkled in motivational speeches from Brie Larson and Meryl Streep with the hors d’oeuvres.

Take a peek inside this year’s pre-Oscar celebratory gatherings below:

SXSW 2016 Interview: John Carchietta, Fabianne Therese and Nichole Bloom on Teenage Cocktail

Over this past weekend, John Carchietta’s Teenage Cocktail premiered as part of the 2016 SXSW Film Festival and Daily Dead was able to chat with the up-and-coming director as well as two of the film’s stars, Nichole Bloom and Fabianne Therese. Here’s what they had to say about their experiences collaborating together on the project, working with co-star Pat Healy, and keeping the film’s story true to the teenage experience:

What I appreciated the most about Teenage Cocktail is that no one here is a true villain; everyone is just incredibly flawed, but in a wholly realistic way. What was it that you both saw in the characters of Jules and Annie that really spoke to you, either as women or as performers?

Nichole Bloom: When I first read the script, I was under consideration for Fabi’s role [Jules], so I read it differently, but also in reading it,

Teenage Cocktail Review [SXSW 2016]

Young love is never, and will never, be easily navigated, which is a reality that writer/director John Carchietta bottles for a bubbly, provocative drink dubbed Teenage Cocktail.

There’s a beauty in the way that Carchietta (and co-writers Sage Bannick/Chris Sivertson/Amelia Yokel) balance pretty-in-pink teenage crushing with warm, comforting relationship notes, with the added bonus of being a twisted obsession thriller. Because that’s what teenage wilds are all about, right? Hormones, brash decisions, devoted love, thoughts of independence, and the truly dangerous cocktail those emotional factors form – something a bartender might call “Your Chaotic Childhood.” Carchietta understands this insanity, and leads viewers on a sensual journey with a wicked sense of danger. This is a story about love, and the crazy fucking shit we do in its name.

Nichole Bloom stars as Annie, a typical teen who develops a not-so typical crush on her dance-loving classmate,
