10 Things You Didn’t Know about Olly Sholotan
Olly Sholotan wasn’t even alive when “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,” aired its final episode after six seasons and 148 episodes. He never knew what it was like to sit around waiting for the show to come back after hiatus for summer and the holidays. He never knew what it was like to watch one episode per week – in real-time because we didn’t have the modern technology in 1990 that we have today – with commercials and all. Because, if you missed the show, you missed the show. It was gone forever. He had no idea, and now he

Frightfest Glasgow 2021: ‘Run Hide Fight’ Review

Frightfest Glasgow 2021: ‘Run Hide Fight’ Review
Stars: Isabel May, Radha Mitchell, Thomas Jane, Eli Brown, Olly Sholotan, Treat Williams, Barbara Crampton, Cyrus Arnold, Britton Sear, Catherine Davis, Kenneisha Thompson, Zachary Le Vey, Shelby Mayes | Written and Directed by Kyle Rankin

I’ve been a huge fan of writer/director Kyle Rankin’s work ever since I first saw Infestation. His blend of comedy and horror really appealed to my sensibilities. Which means I’m always excited to see what he does next. However all his previous efforts never prepared me for Run Hide Fight… Gone are the laughs and in comes a shockingly real look at school shootings, from inside the building.

A normal school day is brought to a brutal halt when invaded by armed students on a murderous mission. As the shooting starts and the blood starts to flow, Zoe (Isabel May) is lucky to get out alive. But then she heads back inside

First Trailer for Controversial 'Run Hide Fight' School Shooting Film

First Trailer for Controversial 'Run Hide Fight' School Shooting Film
"Nothing that happens here matters in the real world." This is not a film we support, especially because the people releasing it are so deranged, but the trailer is out for anyone to watch anyway. Run Hide Fight is a Die Hard-esque film about a school shooting in America. A sore, sad subject to focus on. It premiered at the Venice Film Festival last year, and worst of all, it's being distributed by a hardcore right-wing propaganda organization. It's important to point out this fact - and let you make up your own mind about the film and its content. Run Hide Fight follows a high school sieged by a quartet of live-streaming school shooters when one young girl, 17-year-old Zoe Hull, uses her wits and survival skills to fight back. Starring Thomas Jane, Radha Mitchell, Eli Brown, Olly Sholotan, Treat Williams, Barbara Crampton, and Isabel May as Zoe. This looks like a very unsettling,

‘Run Hide Fight’ Review: Hunters Become Prey in a Crass, Wildly Misjudged School-Shooting Thriller

‘Run Hide Fight’ Review: Hunters Become Prey in a Crass, Wildly Misjudged School-Shooting Thriller
If “‘Elephant’ meets ‘The Hunger Games'” is your idea of an enticing elevator pitch, you’re unlikely to be disappointed by “Run Hide Fight,” though you might want to take a long hard look at your enthusiasm. Kyle Rankin’s fictitious school-shooting thriller echoes multiple previous films in its evocation of post-Columbine classroom terror, before dubiously distinguishing itself by assuming the perspective of one female student tough enough to fight back. Merely pedestrian at the levels of direction, craft and performance, the film instead makes a grab for attention by peddling an ambiguous line on gun control and eye-for-an-eye morality. Any controversy that ensues, however, won’t disguise the phoniness of this exploitation exercise, which milks the worst fears of millions in pursuit of empty tension. A place in Venice’s official selection, even out of competition, was generous.

For Rankin, the writer-director of such openly trashy B-movies as “Night of the Living Deb

‘Run Hide Fight’ Review: Glib Cinestate Thriller Turns a School Shooting into a Clichéd Action Movie

‘Run Hide Fight’ Review: Glib Cinestate Thriller Turns a School Shooting into a Clichéd Action Movie
You might not expect Cinestate — the right-leaning Dallas production company responsible for “Dragged Across Concrete,” “Brawl in Cell Block 99,” and allegedly enabling a pattern of sexual abuse by producer Adam Donaghey — to create a sensitive and thought-provoking film about America’s epidemic of school shootings, but even if you lowered the bar down to the ninth layer of hell the company’s latest and least defensible effort would still manage to slink under it. An unholy cross between “Elephant” and “Die Hard” that depicts an armed attack on a Texas high school with all the realism of Dana Loesch’s wet dreams, “Run Hide Fight” is . It’s a movie made by someone who’s seen too many movies, and now made at least one too many as well.

Poor Thomas Jane. No one who brought us “The Mist” and that one scene at the end of “Boogie Nights
