Full Cast For M. Night Shyamalan's Micro 'Sundowning'

Wed, 04/09/2014 - 14:04

Doing some fact checking on M. Night Shyamalan’s The Happening on IMDB, I noticed that they’ve filled in a bunch of holes for his top secret Sundowning, which is being pegged at the director’s first micro-budgeted feature (although, $5M doesn’t really sound “micro” to me).

According to the notoriously incorrect site, the film is about a single mother whom finds that things in her family’s life go very wrong after her two young children visit their grandparents.

In addition to the previously announced Kathryn Hahn and Ed Oxenbould, the site claims that the horror also stars Erica Lynne Marszalek, Peter McRobbie, Olivia DeJonge, Deanna Dunagan, Benjamin Kanes, Jon Douglas Rainey, Brian Gildea, Shawn Gonzalez, Richard Barlow, Steve Annan, and Michael Mariano.

Says TheWrap who broke the first casting news, “sundowning” is described as a psychological phenomenon associated with increased confusion and restlessness in patients with some form of dementia. Symptoms also include agitation and mood swings.

Shyamalan is producing with Marc Bienstock and Ashwin Rajan, while Steven Schneider of Room 101 is executive producing. Production has nearly wrapped in Shyamalan’s home base of Pennsylvania.

Fine Dining With 'Borgman' (Images)

Wed, 04/09/2014 - 13:14

After premiering at last year’s TIFF, a June 6 release has been set for Alex van Warmerdam’s Borgman, which now has a strange new imagery.

Starring Jan Bijoet, Jeroen Perceval and Hadewych Minis, “Borgman is the central character in Alex van Warmerdam’s dark, malevolent fable. Is he a dream or a demon, a twisted allegory or an all-too-real embodiment of our fears? Borgman is a sinister arrival in the sealed-off streets of modern suburbia. His presence unleashes a crowing gallery of distortion around the careful façade constructed by an arrogant, comfortable couple, their three children and nanny.

Review: 'East of West' #11

Wed, 04/09/2014 - 13:14

While last month reminded me why I love “East of West” this month reminds me why reading this book is sometimes a laborious task. The world building doesn’t come easy, and all too often Hickman forgets to put a character at the core of the story. Although the world itself can be considered the most vital character of this series, it like all the others is far too bogged down by the political machinations at play.

WRITTEN BY: Jonathan Hickman
ART BY: Nick Dragotta
PRICE: $3.50
RELEASE: April 9, 2014

I often have a hard time discerning the story of this comic. At times it feels like the narrative belongs to Death and his unyielding quest for his own doomspawn. Then Hickman will spend entire months with that story shelved in order to tell a larger political story reeling from the events of the first few chapters.

Yet, Game of Thrones this is not. There is no powerplay for wealth, gain, or control. Instead it is a lot of talk about the world, and philosophical musings on power where no real power has been demonstrated. Mind you it all remains interesting… to a degree but just feels weighed down by its own depth.

It’s hard to fault a book for depth, but its accessibility that is the real problem here. The book doesn’t concern itself for with clear character motivations, unless I’m really missing something. Contrary to how it may sound, I’m even into some of the ambiguity, as long as its heading somewhere.

Yet, for me every time this book really feels like its gaining traction is when it spends time with Death. Anything else feels like a detour that isn’t paced very well. Instead I’d love to see more of a balancing act rather than the issue on/issue off type of plot balancing being used here. It’s distracting and difficult to remain invested.

Nick Dragotta again does a wonderful job and demonstrating the massive scope of this world. Monolithic structures are dotted across every page, but what’s more are the insane angles and use of space on display. He is always able to communicate the insanely large and complex nature of this world with beautifully simple panels that rely on extreme long shots. I couldn’t be happier with his work here.

“East of West” have been running for almost a year, and for me still struggles to find it’s narrative footing. I keep holding out hope that the series will slip into a more defined kind of storytelling, but instead it seems content carrying on with the current status quo, as it stands I can hardly recommend the book in the monthly format, because the story is hard to follow when spread out over several months at a time. With the help of the collected trades the story is sure to read with a little more coherence and solve many of the pacing issues I’ve found in my month-to-month reading.

Rating: 2.5/5 Skulls.

Review “Shutter” #1

Wed, 04/09/2014 - 12:57

Joe Keatinge and Leila De Duca breath new life into globetrotting adventure comics with their gigantic and imaginative world. Kate Kristopher may be bored with the world around her, but from everything we see, she has no reason to be. “Shutter” makes a solid effort to define itself in a genre carved out by timeless classics like The Adventures of Tintin and for the most part it succeeds.

WRITTEN BY: Joe Keatinge
ART BY: Leila De Duca
PRICE: $3.50
RELEASE: April 9, 2014

This comic begins by instilling a sense of wonder, adding a sense of bewilderment, and topping it off with a sense of casual complacency. You watch as Kate Kristopher is introduced into a very wild world from an incredibly young age and you’ll be in awe of the universe around her. She lives in a fantastic age filled with weird and marvelous creatures, but she claims her life is boring.

It’s hard to see. She has been on numerous fantastic adventures. The brief glimpses of her exploits that we’re treated too seem more exciting than I could possibly fathom. She’s Johnny Quest but grown up having saw enough to live a thousand lifetimes her world is far from ordinary, but doesn’t seem to faze her anymore.

The looming specters outside of the pages seem to characterize the story more that Kate herself. It’s a beautifully balanced script that shows something missing outside of the primal appeal of adventure, but it’s not quite clear what that something is just yet. It seems rooted in her relationship to her father, but surely there is more to it than that.

Leila De Duca will by all accounts blow you away. Her art is wildly imaginative and pulled off seamlessly. It’s actually quite stunning to see the scope of the world she has created here. Everything is completely outside the ordinary but manages to have a casual complacency about it. You’ll see a robot from 50’s science fiction serials sitting on the subway, and a business minotaur in a suit. Only to be juxtaposed by a swash buckling Kate swinging off a sinking ship as its attacked by a Chthulu like monster. It’s hard to fathom, but De Duca makes it look easy.

There is a lot about the power of childhood here on these pages. A child raised in constant danger comes to thrive off of it. They feel lost without it, and that certainly resonates with Kate. “Shutter” will surprise you. It’s not about all the beautiful and fantastic creatures on the page instead it’s an oddly heartfelt look at a woman’s loss of innocence and wonder in a world literally brimming with adventure.

Powerful and exciting with a flavor of the mundane “Shutter” sadly takes its time in this first issue to develop it’s characters and world a little too much without a real focus on what Kate’s story is actually about. For now though, #1 offers a tantalizing tease of the larger world to come.

Rating: 3.5/5 Skulls.

'The Quiet Ones' Clip Burns With Scolding Hot Water

Wed, 04/09/2014 - 12:18

A scalding bathroom isn’t scary, it’s just hot. But damned if I wanna burn…

The following new clip from The Quiet Ones, haunting theaters April 25, channels A Nightmare on Em Street‘s infamous bathtub sequence, but it’s less effective. Olivia Cooke and Jared Harris are pretty awesome, and Hammer did deliver us Let Me In and The Woman in Black. I’m still being hopeful that they can deliver once again…

A university student (Sam Claflin) and some classmates are recruited to carry out a private experiment — to create a poltergeist. Their subject: an alluring, but dangerously disturbed young woman (Olivia Cooke). Their quest: to explore the dark energy that her damaged psyche might manifest. As the experiment unravels along with their sanity, the rogue PHD students are soon confronted with a terrifying reality: they have triggered an unspeakable force with a power beyond all explanation.

Inspired by true events, The Quiet Ones is directed by John Pogue from a screenplay by Craig Rosenberg and Oren Moverman and John Pogue, and based on a screenplay by Tom de Ville.

Jared Harris, Sam Claflin, Erin Richards, Rory Fleck-Byrne, and “Bates Motel’s” Olivia Cooke all star.

There Be Monsters In This Gory New 'Evil Within' Trailer

Wed, 04/09/2014 - 12:01

Bethesda released a new trailer for The Evil Within, the next horror game from Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami. It looks terrifying, with elements of body horror — the “villagers” are impaled with spikes, wrapped in barbed wire, and/or are mutilated to various degrees — and obvious inspirations from Resident Evil 4. This is one of our most anticipated horror games of 2014, and this brand new trailer only solidifies The Evil Within as a horror game to watch out for.

The Evil Within releases on August 26th for PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

Among the residents of Tromaville is Melvin, a nerdy, emaciated janitor at the local health club. That is, until he becomes The Toxic Avenger!

A gang of thugs devise a cruel hoax that goes horribly wrong as Melvin is cast through a third story window and into a vat of hazardous toxic waste. However, an unexpected metamorphosis takes place. As the chemicals take hold of his body, Melvin turns into the Toxic Avenger, doer of good and brutal mauler of evil! The rest, as they say, is history.

[TV] New "Salem" Spot Will Take Everything... Including Your Soul!

Wed, 04/09/2014 - 10:52

Careful, Heathens: “Salem” will devour your very soul.

While I’m getting increasingly nervous about The Quiet Ones, I can say the complete opposite about “Salem” debuting April 20 on WGNA.

WGNA continues to unload promos, clips and character bios, so much so that I figured they’d be out of content by now. Yet, with each and every new piece they seem to conjure up something new and invigorating. Take this new spot, for example, which is easily the best thus far. It’s a ferocious look at the witches of Salem, showing that they aren’t the weak and callow martyrs the original promos made them out to be. No no no, they’re anything but, and everyone in Salem better watch their ass…

“Salem” explores what really fueled the town’s infamous witch trials and dares to uncover the dark, supernatural truth behind them.

“Salem” stars Janet Montgomery (“Human Target,” “Made in Jersey”) as the ruthless but vulnerable Mary Sibley, Salem’s most powerful enchantress – and Alden’s onetime love interest; Shane West (“Nikita,” “ER”) as handsome, hardened war veteran John Alden; Seth Gabel (“Fringe”) as local aristocrat Cotton Mather who fans the flames of Salem’s witch hunt; Ashley Madekwe (“Revenge”) as Mary’s mysterious, carnal accomplice; Xander Berkeley (“Nikita,” “The Mentalist”) as chief politician Magistrate Hale; Tamzin Merchant (“Jane Eyre”) as the forthright Anne Hale, an artist with a perilous attraction to Alden; and Elise Eberle (“The Astronaut Farmer”) as the mysteriously afflicted Mercy Lewis.

In “Salem,” witches are real, but they are not who or what they seem. The show, which centers on an epic romance wrapped around this explosive revelation, delivers a bold new vision of Salem – and an even bolder new vision of witches.

[BD Review] Horror-Musical 'Stage Fright' Can't Balance the Slash With the Song

Wed, 04/09/2014 - 10:23

When it comes to horror genre hybrids, the horror-musical may not be the first one to jump into fans’ heads. However, the classic entries in the field are really strong. Films like Phantom of the Paradise, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, and Sweeney Todd have set the bar pretty damn high and their cult followers who can sing every song by heart will attest to that. Now Jerome Sable’s debut film Stage Fright hopes to enter the horror-musical ring with its own unique blend of camp slasher and macabre musical numbers. It works well for the film’s first half, then Sable fumbles and never manages to successfully blend the song and the slash.

In the film’s pre-credit sequence, the lead actress (Minnie Driver) of a new musical called “The Haunting of the Opera” is slaughtered in her dressing room. The murder makes the musical a one-time-only affair, ensuring its place in stage infamy. A decade later, the actress’ daughter Camilla (Allie MacDonald) and younger son Buddy (Douglas Smith) are dish dogs at a performing arts camp. The musical number introducing the camp’s many personalities is fun and genuinely entertaining with its tongue-in-cheek humor and catchy hooks. It’s easily the best song in the whole film.

The camp’s manager is none other than Roger, the producer of “The Haunting of the Opera.” He’s played by Meat Loaf, aka one of my favorite singers of all time. I was excited for him to be in another musical (a horror-musical no less!), but I’m sorry to say he’s terribly underused here. The man can sing his ass off like no other, though he’s brushed aside so these damn kids can hog the spotlight. His character isn’t too involved in the bulk of the plot, so I understand the lack of numbers he gets to do. But c’mon, Sable. You’ve got Meat Loaf in your bullpen and you’re not going to give him a number where he can really wail? Lame.

Anyway Roger decides to stage a revival of “The Haunting of the Opera,” which I would find painfully inappropriate if I was Camilla. The same producer, who’s now your boss, wants to revive the musical that basically killed your mother. There’s a faux pas there somewhere. To everyone’s surprise, Camilla tries out for the play instead. She has to duke it out with another talented young woman going out for the lead and also prove herself (sexually) to the director.

Everything leading up to the musical is played light, sorta in the vein of Fame. It’s done pretty well too. Sable has an obvious talent for music and lyrics, but it’s when the horror elements come into play where he starts dropping the ball. The musical numbers dramatically taper off during the second half, when Stage Fright delves into the slasher mystery killer realm. Who is butchering people in a kabuki mask? Is it the creepy Scooby-Doo-esque janitor? Fame-hungry Roger? The weirdo stagehand crushing on Camilla?

The presence of the whodunit element to the story is fine, however it overwhelms the second half of the film, leaving its musical aspirations in ruins. The terrific musicality is there in a strong way at first, but Sable is never able to make it work with the horror. There are some poor attempts to give the killer a hair-metal sounding music trademark. They just sound incredibly silly though. He solos on a guitar at one point. It sucks.

Rather then be a solid blend of horror and musical, Stage Fright winds up being a generic slasher with a strong musical start.

Etheria Film Night Hosts 'Soulmate' North American Premiere

Mon, 04/07/2014 - 11:06

The 2014 Etheria Film Night is pleased to host the North American Premiere of writer/director Axelle Carolyn’s feature film Soulmate at the Egyptian Theatre on July 12th.

Etheria Film Night is dedicated to showcasing the best new genre films directed by women and screens only one feature-length film each year.

The premiere will be followed by a red carpet cocktail reception and the official Etheria Film Night short film competition lineup.

In the film, “Recently widowed Audrey moves to the countryside in a bid to get her life back on track. When she realizes the cottage she’s renting is haunted, she decides to stay and strikes up an odd relationship with the ghost…

Audrey (played by Anna Walton, who also appeared in Carolyn’s short film The Halloween Kid) is a suicidal woman mourning the recent death of her husband. Isolating herself in an old country cottage away from friends and family, she soon develops a relationship with the ghost (Tom Wisdom) haunting the property. What follows is an atypical genre film in which love is not the ultimate cure-all.

Soulmate is written and directed by Axelle Carolyn, produced by Claire Otway, and features Anna Walton (Audrey), Tom Wisdom (Douglas), Tanya Myers (Theresa) and Nick Brimble (Dr Zellaby).
