‘The Ascent’ VOD Review
Stars: Shayne Ward, Bentley Kalu, Piotr Baumann, Simon Meacock, Toby Osmond, Samantha Schnitzler, Matt Malecki, Spencer Collings, Phoebe Robinson-Galvin, Alana Wallace, Sophie Austin | Written and Directed by Tom Paton

[Note: With the film now out digitally in the UK and in the Us (under the title Black Ops), here’s a reposting of our review of Tom Paton’s The Ascent – from the films debut at Frightfest last August]

As someone who reviews a Lot of movies, who grew up in the era of the video shop, its fun to see people clearly raised on the same types of films I enjoyed as a teenager now stepping behind the camera and making films of their own. Films that, as the filmmakers peers, I can recognise as having been influenced by the very same films I know, and in a lot of cases, love. Case in point, Tom Paton.

Paton’s last film, Black Site, clearly wore its inspirations on its sleeve, the John Carpenter-esque action-horror hybrid was just that.

Exclusive Black Ops Clip: Orders Are Orders

Exclusive Black Ops Clip: Orders Are Orders
In our exclusive, Nsfw clip, a military team witnesses evidence that they wish they had never seen. Written and directed by Tom Paton, Black Ops follows that small military team, who have arrived on a field to carry out a secret mission. Soon, however, they "find themselves trapped in a terrifying, never-ending stairwell," in the words of the official synopsis. "Forced to climb or die, the group soon come face to face with their past sins in a desperate fight for survival." The description "suffocating intensity" certainly applies to the film. Shayne Ward, Toby Osmond, Simon Meacock, Bentley Kalu, Rachel Warren and Samantha Schnitzler star. Black Ops enjoyed its world premiere at FrightFest 2019. We wrote about the official trailer and showcased a few official...

Interview: Actor Toby Osmond talks ‘The Ascent’

Interview: Actor Toby Osmond talks ‘The Ascent’
As part of our support for the launch of Tom Paton’s new film The Ascent on VOD, here’s an interview with actor and regular Tom Paton collaborator Toby Osmond, who appears in the film as Jack Ford.

The Ascent follows a group of mercenaries, who are sent to Eastern Europe in the middle of a civil war to retrieve intel. Shortly after the mission, the unit find themselves trapped on a never-ending stairwell; forced to climb or die. To survive, they must revisit their past sins if they ever want to get off.

The Ascent reminded me of Michael Mann’s The Keep, which was sort of his lost film…

To: I’ve heard people say that The Ascent reminds them of a cross between Ringu and Time…something, I get the Ringu reference because of the monster in our film, but I’ve not seen The Keep.

U.K. Action Thriller ‘The Ascent’ Turns to Vr for Lockdown Premiere

Mercenaries Stuck in a Never-Ending Stairwell in 'Black Ops' Trailer

Mercenaries Stuck in a Never-Ending Stairwell in 'Black Ops' Trailer
"What was our mission?" Samuel Goldwyn Films has debuted the official trailer for an indie action horror called Black Ops, which is the new release title – it's also known as The Ascent or Stairs. This originally premiered at Frightfest last year, and will be available to watch in June. Follow a black ops team who find themselves trapped in a terrifying, never-ending stairwell. Forced to climb or die, the group soon come face to face with their past sins in a desperate fight for survival. This stars Shayne Ward, Rachel Warren, Simon Meacock, Bentley Kalu, Samantha Schnitzler, and Toby Osmond. While it seems like a sci-fi concept, it leans way more into horror. There's creepy ghosts everywhere, and they're stuck because of some supernatural force wants to torment them. Maybe a bit too much style, and nowhere near enough substance. Here's the official Us trailer (+ two posters) for Tom Paton's Black Ops,

Black Ops Trailer Traps Soldiers on a Never-Ending Stairwell to Hell

Black Ops Trailer Traps Soldiers on a Never-Ending Stairwell to Hell
A new trailer for Black Ops has been released. This is the latest from the folks at Samuel Goldwyn Films and comes from writer/director Tom Paton. On the surface at least, this seems like a somewhat standard modern military operation flick. A rag-tag group of heroes on a mission. That old bit. However, the movie made its debut at FrightFest last year, a genre film festival. What on Earth was a move like this doing at a festival geared toward horror, one might wonder? This trailer provides a pretty interesting answer to that very question.

The trailer kicks off with a squad of military personal heading out on a mission in 2019. A big deal is made about the level of risk. Seemingly standard stuff for this sort of movie. Their mission takes something of an odd, dark turn and, after its over, things get especially strange. The group is

Arrow Video Frightfest 2019 Review – Stairs

Stairs, 2019.

Directed by Tom Paton

Starring Samantha Schnitzler, Bentley Kalu, Shayne Ward, Simon Meacock, Toby Osmond, Phoebe Robinson-Galvin, Alana Wallace, Spencer Collings and Julia Szamalek

Synopsis:

When a group of Special Ops soldiers nicknamed “The Hell Bastards” are compromised during an infiltration mission on the battlefield, they seek solace within the confines of a building that houses a never-ending stairwell that forces them to climb or die.

There are plenty of genre films with a doozy of a concept, that subsequently can’t quite build on it to form a rounded, interesting feature length movie.

That’s the dilemma facing Tom Paton’s Twilight Zone invoking science-fiction horror. A kind of Groundhog Day, meets M.Night Shyamalan produced elevator thriller The Devil, by way of Dog Soldiers. A slice of action hokum which thrives on some nifty-yet-familiar narrative devices, but occasionally stumbles down the odd flight of stairs along the way.

Not one but Three kick-ass powerful leading ladies. Break-neck fight choreography straight out of The Raid. A spellbinding and ear tickling 80s retro synth score. A chilling Lector-esque performance that gave this reviewer the Heebie Jeebies. Action, Elder Gods with a Lovecraftian mythology twist. Tom Paton brings all of this in his game changing must see genre defying, sleek, stylised, adventurous ode to John Carpenter for a modern audience.
