eeeewwww Looks rather arty...and pretentious, while the original is so sleazy that it literally drips. No sir, I don't like it. And really??? Elijah Wood(while I like him) is about as threatening as a moth.
Oh Adgy...this one sounds like it was made with you in mind. Sounds good to me too.There will be those who will completely disagree with me on this film saying that it bored them to tears. It is a slow builder and apart from a few creepy scenes, I could see folks tuning out at the forty-five minute mark after quietly following this women with very little by way of event or excitement. Those who love splatter and big shockeroos of the SAW and FINAL DESTINATION variety will most definitely not find this film as impactful, but ENTRANCE isn’t about all of that. Those with a little bit of patience and appreciate their terrors slow-slithering will fall in love with this film. ENTRANCE is about creeping paranoia that something is wrong and the utter shock that those paranoid feelings are correct. Most like Polanski’s REPULSION, ENTRANCE allows us to get up close and personal with a lost soul and then punishes us for getting that close in the end.
Be assured, the ending is violent and shocking. I can only compare ENTRANCE to a slowly inflating balloon. As the helium rushes in, you feel the tension growing and know something bad is going to happen. You expect the eventual explosion, but instead of helium, when it does burst, the balloon is full of blood—splattering in your face and shocking the **** out of you. The final moments of this film burrowed into my soul, mainly because the directors so effectively put me in the room with our heroine. Through an unflinching camera, a likable protagonist, an overall sense of dread and paranoia and an ending that hits like an anvil, ENTRANCE is one of the best horror films I’ve seen all year.
Indie slasher Entrance opens on IFC Midnight Cable VOD and Digital Outlets (SundanceNOW, iTunes, Amazon Streaming, XBOX Zune, Playstation Unlimited) this Friday, May 18th. It’s a deceptively quiet horror film starring Suziey Block as Suzy, a lonely young woman in Los Angeles going through a serious case of malaise. It’s almost a mumblecore From Dusk Till Dawn in that you might not even know it’s a slasher movie until you’re a good deal of the way through it. It’s also really good.
But don’t take my word for it. From BC’s review, “On a technical level with regards to its slasher elements, Entrance is a pretty great flick. There are a couple of earned jolts, some surprisingly good kills, and a slow burn creepiness not unlike The Strangers or Ils, not to mention the creative approach – our “Final Girl” is in every single frame of the film, which doesn’t allow for her slutty best friend to go off alone or even cutaways during the scare scenes. By design the slasher film is a fairly limited concept, so anytime I can walk away impressed by how the filmmakers handled their well-worn material on the directorial side of things, I am happy.”

Sean Bean And Tom Savini On Screen Together? It’ll Happen In ‘The 4th Reich’ | | Bloody DisgustingBloody Disgusting
Sooooo Sean Bean, Tom Savini AND Sean Pertwee. And Nazi hijinks...SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.So yeah, The 4th Reich sounds kind of crazy to me so far. It’ll see Sean Bean (pictured inside; “Game Of Thrones”, LOTR), special effects wizard/actor Tom Savini (“From Dusk Till Dawn”), and Craig Conway (The Descent) acting for director Shaun Robert Smith (The Forgotten Ground).
Per The Hollywood Reporter, “Sean Bean has signed to star opposite an ensemble cast including Sean Pertwee, Tom Savini and Craig Conway in Shaun Robert Smith-directed WW2 action-horror film The 4th Reich. Bean, whose resume boasts high profile turns in “Game of Thrones” and ‘Lord of the Rings’, will play a charismatic British sergeant major in the film.”
The script, “details the story of a brigade of British soldiers sent into occupied mainland Europe who find themselves up against an enemy created by Nazi scientists as an all-powerful fighting force for what would be the 4th Reich.”
The movie was recently purchased by U.K. sale to eOne Entertainment. It is scheduled to shoot this summer and U.K. indie production banner Mann Made Films are currently recruiting more cast.
