Watch the Mind-Bending Short Film Monsters

  • DailyDead
A girl is warned by her family to not leave their bunker, lest she runs into the monsters that now prowl the Earth. Curiosity has a way of pushing people to explore, however, and what this girl discovers above ground is not at all what she expects in the short film Monsters, which you can watch in its entirety right here on Daily Dead.

"The Twilight ZoneThe Outer LimitsAlfred Hitchcock Presents… These stories shocked us, scared us, and forever imbedded themselves into our memories. They were social commentaries and morality tales, disguised as psychological thrillers. But where are these types of stories today?

The truth is, they don’t make them anymore. So we want to tell one of our own.

Monsters is a Twilight Zone style story for the modern world. It seethes with suspense from its first moment, all the way up to its jaw-dropping finale.

The 50 Best Sci-Fi Films of the 21st Century Thus Far

In a medium founded on expanding one’s imagination and perception of reality, no genre does it better than science fiction. We’ve come a long way from the days when Georges Méliès took us to the moon, for today’s filmmakers look far beyond our universe and into the deepest corners of our soul to reflect the current society.

With the latest entry in the Star Trek franchise arriving in theaters this week, we’ve set out to reflect on the millennium’s sci-fi films that have most excelled. To note: we only stuck with feature-length works of 60 minutes or longer and, to make room for a few more titles, our definition of “the 21st century” stretched to include 2000.

Check out our top 50 below and let us know your favorites in the comments. We’ve also put the list on Letterboxd to keep track of how many you’ve seen.

[SXSW Review] Everybody Wants Some!!

Near the end of his essay for the Criterion release of Dazed and Confused, Kent Jones writes, “[Richard] Linklater has a keen, poetic memory for exactly how we did nothing.” Like the best American directors, Linklater understands that the roots of Americana are in a formless wandering, one that was as often about bullshit as transcendence.

Everybody Wants Some!!, the spiritual sequel to his 1993 feature, is another rumination on transition, following the residents of a baseball house the weekend before classes at an unspecified college in 1980. It’s a weekend bacchanalia filled with rule-breaking parties, masculinity endurance tests, hotboxed bedrooms, closed-door hookups, and the flickers of a romance that could be about more than getting off.

Echoing the platonically ’70s ripples of “Sweet Emotion” in its predecessor, Everybody Wants Some!! opens with the stomping snares of “My Sharona.” It’s the dawn of a new era as the easy-going, sneakily joyful

8 TV shows based on horror movies -- and how they fared

8 TV shows based on horror movies -- and how they fared
With the recent successes of such TV series as "American Horror Story," "Hannibal" and Showtime's "Penny Dreadful," horror is hot on the small-screen right now -- so much so that in addition to MTV's forthcoming small-screen "Scream" spinoff, TV studios are in the midst of bringing a horde of cinematic fright-film properties to television, ranging from "Shutter Island" to "The Devil's Advocate" to "The Mist." In light of this, I've taken a look back at eight previous horror movie-to-tv translations and analyzed why they hit -- or didn't -- with audiences. "Bates Motel" (A&E) Based on: "Psycho" Aired: 2013-present Why it did (or didn't) work:a great pedigree ("Lost" showrunner Carlton Cuse), a terrific cast (Vera Farmiga, Freddie Highmore) and generally positive critical notices gave "Bates Motel" a sheen of respectability that worked well in this Golden Age of prestige television. The show has so far aired three successful seasons

Comic-Con 2014 Interviews with the Cast & Crew of Sharknado 2: The Second One

Get ready, horror fans- there’s a storm brewing this week in New York City that’s wielding killer sharks and all kinds of wonderfully over-the-top chaos in Anthony C. Ferrante’s Sharknado 2: The Second One, which makes its debut tonight on SyFy.

During the 2014 San Diego Comic-Con, Daily Dead chatted with director Ferrante, the sequel’s star Ian Ziering, and co-stars Vivica A. Fox and Judah Friedlander about their experiences making the film in New York City and their thoughts on the pop culture frenzy surrounding the Sharknado films.

Ian Ziering on the phenomena of Sharknado: The experience itself has been overwhelming. I never expected these movies to become what they’ve become. This is a low-budget science fiction movie and you never know when you initially come on board a project like this what the final product is going to be. And I originally never thought

Escape from Tomorrow review: Mickey Mouse horror

Whatever the technical intrigue of a film shot guerilla-style at Disney World, the would-be surreal midlife crisis that ended up onscreen doesn’t work… at all. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

It sounded like a potentially fun idea: an indie shot guerilla-style at Disney World in Orlando and Disneyland in Los Angeles purporting to show, in a fictional way, the dark side of The Happiest Place on Earth. But it doesn’t work — at all. There’s not much story for far too long into the brief runtime, merely the onset of a midlife crisis for Jim (Roy Abramsohn) who, on the last day of his family vacation at Disney World, learns that he’s been fired from his job. He then proceeds to spend the day variously creeping on two teenaged French girls

Film Review: Engrossing ‘Cheap Thrills’ Bets on Men’s Desperation

Chicago – “Cheap Thrills” is a case study in human desperation and depravity. It’s a sick and twisted film, but it goes about it in a most absorbing albeit uncomfortable way. It’s one of those films that forces the viewer to place themselves in the protagonist’s unpredictable position, asking a question like, “What would you do for money?” Once you do it, what else are you willing to do for more and then, “How far is too far?”

Rating: 3.5/5.0

In his directorial debut, E.L. Katz, along with screenwriters David Chirchirillo and Trent Haaga, want us to ask such questions and many more. Based on the levels of humiliation and pain witnessed on the screen, they also want us to squirm in frustrated and anger. It’s like a product of “The Twilight Zone” and “Creepshow” spilling into each other, that happens to deliver one of the most memorable endings of the year.

Special Report: The Sundance Film Festival 2014: Best Of Fest

Writing his musings officially for The Hollywood News, friend of the site Adam Mast of Utah’s Zboneman.com and The Independent, describes his experience and lists his top films from Sundance 2014.

Sundance 2014 was a bit of a milestone for me. Not only was it the 30th anniversary of the iconic fest, but it also happened to be my 20th consecutive year attending. Not to be outdone, I managed to take in a whopping 41 screenings in 10 short days. Insane, I know. While it was exhausting, it was also an incredibly magical experience.

The general consensus amongst many of the attendees I spoke to during the fest, was that there wasn’t a break out hit this year. I suppose that’s all a matter of perception. From where I was sitting, this might have been the most consistent Sundance in recent memory. Of the 41 films I took in, there were

Things Get Brutal on the Indie Scene

With films like Raze getting a lot of attention lately, the question beckons... will combat horror be the next subgenre to hit it big? Given that Donald Lawrence Flaherty’s Brutal has added aliens to the mix, it just might!

Described as Fight Club meets “The Twilight Zone,” the film stars Morgan Benoit (Forbidden Kingdom, 47 Ronin) and features fight sequences created by two of Hollywood’s top stunt performers, Colin Follenweider (Avatar, X-Men) and Chris Torres (Letters from Iwo Jima).

Synopsis:

Brutal centers on Trevor (Morgan Benoit), who is abducted at the age of fifteen by an unseen alien presence. Forced into nearly two decades of no-holds-barred fights against other abductees, Trevor evolves from an innocent boy into a brutal fighting machine.

Derek (Jeff Hatch), an ambulance chasing lawyer, is the latest lab-rat abductee forced to fight Trevor. As they exchange increasingly violent beatings over the course of weeks and months,
