Review: The Meg (2018)

The journey to the big screen for The Meg, adapted from the 1997 Steve Alten novel, has been a rather long gestating one, as this project has been in development since the late ‘90s. No doubt the vision for the film has undergone a number of changes over the course of this period but this summer The Meg is here and nearly 45 years on from Steven Spielberg creating the summer blockbuster as we know it with Jaws, it is refreshing to see giant sharks back in midst of the summer season.

Director John Turteltaub (National Treasure) had originally envisioned his Jason Statham vs. Megaladon actioner as an R-Rated picture but despite being moved down the rating scale, thankfully the end result avoids the watered down neutered territory of Shark Night 3D and ends up as Jaws by way of Deep Blue Sea (the strongest influence), with the biting self-awareness of Piranha 3D

Deep Blue Sea 2 Review

As Renny Harlin’s Deep Blue Sea continues to be eulogized as B-grade, feeding-frenzy excellence (now and forever), Darin Scott’s Deep Blue Sea 2 will be forgotten, ignored and seen only as malodorous sequel chum. How *dare* drug-doped supersharks be associated with such a nonsensically rudderless dive, as submerged survival “fun” is drained well before the dam breaks wide open. Restrained budgets are one thing, but a three-person writing team’s concocted solution around big-budget finback effects is a middle-finger to Harlin’s masterful underwater massacre (in comparison). Hell, even Shark Night 3D looks infallible next to this Open Water 3: Cage Dive of a franchise torpedo.

You know what – apologies. We’re going full-on spoilers for the rest of this review. Read at your own risk. Frustration is bubbling over at an aggressive rate that needs to be addresses through cathartic ranting. You’ve been warned, those who want a fresh (water) experience.

Snakes on a Plane Becomes a Reality for Terrified Airline Passengers

Snakes on a Plane Becomes a Reality for Terrified Airline Passengers
Earlier this summer, the cult hit Snakes on a Plane celebrated its 10th Anniversary, and as implausible as that movie was, it just became a reality for a group of Mexican airline passengers. During an AeroMexico flight from Torreon to Mexico City yesterday, passenger Indalecio Medina posted a video to social media, which shows a massive snake, believed to be a venomous green viper, falling from an overhead compartment to the main cabin. The plane was given priority clearance to land in Mexico City so that animal control could properly remove the snake.

While it still isn't known how the snake even got on the plane, Upi reports that Indalecio Medina captured the snake in a blanket and gave it some "magazines to read." He also posted another brief video on Twitter that shows animal control workers removing the snake. Here's what a representative for AeroMexico airlines had to say in a statement.

Jonathan N Dixon to crowdfund sharks-and-surfers-movie Grey Fear

Director Jonathan N Dixon.

Filmmaker Jonathan N Dixon took some time off after his last film, the 2011 horror-thriller Wrath, to spend more time with his daughter.

He moved to Noosa and took up surfing after a long absence from the waves, and slowly but surely a new film idea began to seed.

"Everybody I went surfing with knew my background in film and TV and would always talk to me about sharks", Dixon told If.

"Only a year ago, a seven-foot tiger shark hung around for a couple of days. We all got out of the water, but what did we do the next day? Get back in. We take that chance all the time because of a passion for surfing".

"A surfer-and-shark movie has never been done, probably because of the difficulty - because it's a bastard to shoot when you're on the water!" (laughs)

Dixon has decided to

9 of the craziest post-Jaws shark movies, from Jaws in Japan to Sharknado

9 of the craziest post-Jaws shark movies, from Jaws in Japan to Sharknado
Ever since Steven Spielberg's Jaws redefined the blockbuster back in the summer of 1975, sharks have been a big screen mainstay, terrifying film fans and spawning a horror sub-genre that's usually thrifty in budget but big on ludicrousness.

As Jaws celebrates its 40th birthday today (June 20), take a dive into B-movie heaven and fish out some of cinema's craziest shark-based cinema offerings.

1. Deep Blue Sea (1999)

A Jaws movie in all but name, this souped-up action-horror from Renny Harlin boasts a bigger budget than every other film on this list combined, but a script that rivals them all for hilarity.

The setup? A group of scientists in an underwater research base conduct experiments on sharks in a bid to find a cure for Alzheimer's. Boasting a cast that includes everyone from Thomas Jane to Samuel L Jackson (with LL Cool J as a parrot-loving chef), this is big and dumb - but most importantly,

Backcountry Review [Scary Movies 8]

As Jaws once cleared tourist-filled beaches thanks to a Great White threat, Backcountry is certain to make outdoorsy adventurers re-think their next wilderness excursion. Yes, Backcountry is the camping equivalent to Jaws, turning a natural woodland predator into a horrific killing machine with more ferocity than the wildest creatures Hollywood has ever dreamed up.

While bear encounters probably don’t turn into a survivalist’s nightmare all that often, filmmaker Adam MacDonald channels every camper’s worst-case-scenario into a gritty, gory, tremendously tense vacation-from-hell genre experiment that puts animal attack movies back on the map. I assumed no bear-centric horror movie would top the opening scene of André Szöts’ never-completed Grizzly 2: The Predator (George Clooney, Laura Dern, Charlie Sheen – tell me you’ve seen this??), but Backcountry asserts its dominance by once again reminding humanity that Mother Nature’s untamed domain can never be accounted for – a primal realization

Exclusive: Clip From Rom-Com '#Stuck' With Joel David Moore & Madeline Zima Plus New Red Band Trailer

What happens when a one night stand lasts a bit longer than you were expecting? That's the simple idea behind the upcoming comedy "#Stuck," which, as the title implies, finds two people in each other's space for well beyond what they had intended. The partially crowdfunded movie was written and directed by Stuart Acher, stars Joel David Moore ("Avatar," "Shark Night 3D") and Madeline Zima ("Californication," "Breaking The Girls"), and follows a couple whose one evening of passion comes to a grinding halt the next day, when they get stuck in traffic. And as you'll see below in this exclusive clip, it's a scenario that causes the tension to rise between the pair, while right after that, a new Red Band trailer sets the mood for the entire comedy. "#Stuck" opens in theaters and on VOD on October 10th. Watch below.

There’s A Big Ass Fish Out There, So Let’s Kill Each Other – A Review Of Scream Factory’s Beneath Blu-ray

I have what one might call a complicated relationship with Chiller original programming, especially movies. The main issue is, I want to like them, since the eventual Blu-ray release will most definitely be released by Shout!/Scream, but in most cases, I don’t. In all honesty, despite its shortcomings, Beneath has been the first Chiller original movie that I have found any sort of enjoyment in. That’s not to say that it is a great movie, because it is not. It still very much retains that “Made-for-tv” feel. That is to say, it looks cheap, and for the most part, especially as far as the acting is concerned, you definitely “get what you pay for”, so to speak. Still, I found myself wanting to continue watching, where as in past releases, like Remains or Dead Souls, I just couldn’t even power through to the end without pausing

Beneath Director Larry Fessenden Talks Big Fish, Rubber Puppets, Lake Monsters, and Much More!

Veteran horror contributor and all-around cool guy Larry Fessenden has a lot of acting, directing and producing credits to his name. But he's never worked with anything quite like he did on Beneath. Fessenden recently sat down with Dread Central to talk about his new film.

First he gave us a brief synopsis of what viewers can expect when they hitch their anchor to Beneath. "It's a stylish little horror film about six teenagers stuck in a rowboat with a malevolent force under the water trying to get them," Fessenden said.

"It's a movie about the decisions they make to get out of the dilemma, and they're not all pretty decisions."

Indeed the film, which at first glance appears to be a monster movie, certainly has other, more devious intentions for viewers as they get deeper into the story and the characters become much less friendly with each other. "I'm

Bruce Wayne and Catwoman Cast in Fox’s ‘Gotham’

Young Master Wayne and Selina Kyle, Aka Catwoman, have been chosen for Fox’s Batman prequel, Gotham. David Mazouz will play the tragedy-stricken Bruce, shortly after the murder of his parents and now under the care of Alfred Pennyworth (Sean Pertwee).
