‘Smothered’ Review

Stars: Brea Grant, Kane Hodder, Bill Moseley, Don Shanks, R.A Mihailoff, Michael Berryman, John Kassir, Dane Rhodes, Shanna Forrestall, John Schneider, Adria Tennor, Andrew Bowen, Amy Brassette | Written and Directed by John Schneider

Horror comedy Smothered is written and directed by actor turned director John Schneider. Yes, you did read that correctly… Actor John Schneider, who many will know from family-friendly productions and his roles as Bo Duke on Dukes of Hazzard and more recently Jonathan Kent, aka Superman’s dad, on Smallville, has turned his hand to writing and directing in more recent years but who knew he had a penchant for penning horror? Admittedly he has had roles in low-budget monster movies such as Super Shark, Snow Beast and Lake Placid 2 but I had no idea he was such a horror fan – he certainly has to be to create such a love letter to the horror community as Smothered.

Footballers Who Dabbled in Film

  • HeyUGuys
The latest computer game to be turned into a movie is the best selling game from ‘Company of Heroes’. It’s a real-time strategy game in which you have to navigate your soldiers tanks across maps in order to defeat your enemies coming in at your front the opposite direction.

The new movie has a very Band of Brothers feel to it and actually has one character from that series playing the same role in the movie. Company of Heroes is released on DVD today and stars Tom Sizemore (Black Hawk Down, Saving Private Ryan), Chad Collins (Lake Placid 2, Sniper Reloaded), Vinnie Jones (The Tomb, Snatch), Neal McDonough (Captain America: The First Avenger, “Band of Brothers”), and Jürgen Prochnow (The Da Vinci Code, Das Boot).

FEARnet Movie Review: 'Lake Placid 4: The Final Chapter'

FEARnet Movie Review: 'Lake Placid 4: The Final Chapter'
 

When it comes to reviewing a Part 4, I often like to start out with a quick and hopefully helpful little "franchise history lesson," just to bring everyone up to speed -- but is that really necessary at this point? Probably not. What was once a strange but amusing little matinee movie from a well-known TV producer has (somehow, slowly) turned into a cable TV sequel franchise that exists for nothing more than to fill a random Saturday night slot with a lot of silliness and a bunch of crocodile madness. Congrats to the goofily-named Lake Placid 4: it not only qualifies under those criteria, it's also the most stupidly entertaining entry in this non-franchise since the first one... which wasn't all that great but hey, people who love movies about man-eating crocodiles* can't afford to be all that discerning. But for the sake of tradition: Lake Placid (1999), written by David E. Kelley

New Branded Trailer Contains 97 Qr Codes; Unlock For Loads of Extras

Branded is a dark and mind-bending journey into a surreal, dystopian society where corporate brands have unleashed a monstrous global conspiracy to get inside our minds and keep the population disillusioned, dependent and passive.

The film, also written by Dulerayn and Bradshaw stars Ingeborga Dapkunaite, Mariya Ignatova, Leelee Sobieski, Atanas Srebrev, Ed Stoppard and Max von Sydow. Notable professional, Tatyana 'Tita' Sleptsova (who’s known for The Fourth Kind, Return to House on Haunted Hill, Lake Placid 2 and Manticore) will front the make-up/SFX department.

Blu Releases This Week: Buffy the Vampire Exterminator

There’s a large amount of Blus (both horror and non-horror) coming out this week. I tried to condense it down to the most important Horror releases, though I am known to just write whatever I think you guys might like. Star Wars and Citizen Kane are the big classic releases this week, and for decent prices if you’re into that (I do love both). I’m not excited for that butchered Blu release of Star Wars though, I mean really, you were told to cut material out of your movie for a reason. Fuck you, Lucas.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Never seen it, but I do consider the Geller T.V. show a rather guilty pleasure of mine, so I might have to check this out…maybe. Is this considered a cult classic?

The Exterminator: I hope to be getting a screener of this one, an almost

Weeds Season 7 Finale Casts New Hoodlum

There’s a new hoodlum prowling around Showtime, and he’s slick enough to not only sneak into Season 7 of Weeds, but he’ll also be hanging around for Season 8. Ian Reed Kesler, who can be seen in 500 Days of Summer, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and Lake Placid 2, has been cast in the Season 7 finale of Weeds as “an offbeat hoodlum with a military bent,” and Variety has revealed that the character would also be showing up in Season 8, assuming that Weeds actually has an eighth season.

Aside from the vague description of the character, Showtime hasn’t shared anything about Kesler’s role, but it must be a fairly solid part if the hoodlum makes his appearance in the Season 7 finale and then spills over into Season 8. Weeds does love its cliffhangers so there’s a chance that Kesler’s intro will set up the premise

Memorial Day 2011 TV: Marathons, sports and specials

Memorial Day 2011 is here and while we should all take time to thank a veteran and active servicemen and women, it also means for us TVphiles - lots of good programming. So either settle in with some popcorn or make sure your DVR is ready to go.

There are movie marathons. Syfy is busting out its greatest hits in the giant monster oeuvre on Friday, followed by "Star Trek" movies all weekend. TCM and AMC are showing nothing but military movies, including classics like "All Quiet on the Western Front," "From Here to Eternity" and "Patton."

If marathons are your thing, you've got everything from "Firefly" and "Doctor Who" to "House Hunters" and "How It's Made." And if you're a sports fan, while the NBA playoffs are on hiatus, you can still watch a ton of baseball, the 2011 French Open or the annual Memorial Day race the Indianapolis 500.

Exclusive: Chad Michael Collins and Claudio Fah Talk Sniper Reloaded

Exclusive: Chad Michael Collins and Claudio Fah Talk Sniper Reloaded
Star Chad Michael Collins and director Claudio Fah discuss Sniper: Reloaded, working with Billy Zane, shooting in South Africa, a sequel, and more.

I have seen enough "straight-to-dvd sequels" in my day to know that most of them lack one basic element: they aren't really sequels. Sure, they may be in the same tone or genre as the original, but they are completely different characters and, most of the time, set in completely different worlds. Sniper: Reloaded has the distinction of being one of the first "straight-to-dvd sequels" I've seen in many years that actually deserves to call itself a sequel, and it's a damn good movie as well. The story centers around the son of Tom Berenger's character, from the original 1993 movie Sniper, and also features a fantastic return performance from Billy Zane, who reprises his role of Richard Miller from the original as well.

Exclusive Interview: Chad Michael Collins (Sniper: Reloaded)

  • PopStar
Ladies and gentlemen, meet Chad Michael Collins, an up-and-coming actor to watch. Collins is really just starting out, having amassed such credits as Legion of the Dead (2005), Lake Placid 2 (2007), CSI: NY (TV), Greek (TV) and NCIS (TV), but he recently scored his biggest break yet, the one that could secure him serious interest from producers, directors, casting agents and audiences. He's the lead -- yup, the star -- of Sniper: Reloaded (2011), a direct-to-dvd sequel to the popular Sniper action films that starred Tom Berenger. Collins plays Berenger's son in the April 26 release from Sony Home Entertainment, but let's let him tell everyone about it -- and about himself, his career and aspirations -- in this exclusive interview. You've been steadily making your way up the Hollywood food chain. Take us to the day you landed the lead in Reloaded, and then, what was your experience like on set, being
