    It's dogs vs. zombies in awesome new apocalyptic short | Blastr

    From George Romero's numerous zombie films to AMC's The Walking Dead, we've explored several angles of a potential zombie apocalypse. But what about the doggies left behind after we're all Walker bait?


    Luckily, indie filmmakers Andres and Diego Meza Valdes are here to answer that question, via their surreal new short film Play Dead. Set from the point of view of a pack of dogs, the 18-minute short film was made on a shoestring budget after the team raising $6,000 on crowd-funding service Kickstarter.

    The official synopsis is awesome:

    A zombie apocalypse unites a ragtag pack of dogs in the ruined streets of Miami. Immune to the epidemic, they must stick together to survive in the midst of ferocious undead and human survivors in this unauthorized sequel to "Homeward Bound." Sit. Stay. Play dead...

    Day, The (2012) | Horror Movie, DVD, & Book Reviews, News, Interviews at Dread Central

    In terms of indie fare, The Day is a prime example of just how a filmmaker can make a limited budget and resources work to his advantage by having the right talent in front of and behind the camera. Aarniokoski's handling of Luke Passmore's script is masterful, allowing for tension to build without ever relying on huge set-ups or a ton of exposition either; he keeps the film's pacing steady throughout, even up to the final moments.

    Also enjoyable iss how both Passmore and Aarniokoski manage to keep you guessing throughout the film; they push to the side many of the usual post-apocalyptic tropes and deliver a new story. While it may draw comparisons to films like Assault on Precinct 13 or The Road due to certain aspects of its story, The Day feels wholly new and fresh, which is remarkable considering the number of post-apocalyptic projects these days.

    The ensemble of The Day all deliver knockout performances, especially Bell, who proves that her work in The Last Exorcism wasn't a fluke. This gal has something, and whatever the role, she manages to keep you captivated even if she isn't given a lot of dialogue to work with.

    My only grievance with The Day is that I would have liked a bit more information on what exactly happened in the world - how these people came together, managed to survive for 10 years (no easy feat I would imagine) - just something else that would have given us a little more of a sense of where these characters came from.

    So while The Day certainly isn't a game changer by any means, it still remains a rather entertaining indie film that manages to deliver a few unique spins on a world that we've seen countless times before. With a talented director at the helm and an accomplished ensemble bringing Passmore's taut and engaging story to life, those of you who like to revel in the world going to hell (like it does here) should find a lot to like about The Day.
    Ok...I'm sold.

    The Possession :: rogerebert.com :: Reviews

    "The Exorcist" has influenced a lot of films, and this is one of the better ones.

    And an alternate view.

    Review: 'The Possession' Wants To Be 'The Exorcist' But Comes Off Like A Lesser Episode Of 'The X-Files' | The Playlist

    You expect more from the film, especially considering that it was directed by Ole Bornedal, a Danish filmmaker who helmed the exceptional original "Nightwatch" (plus the less exceptional, Soderbergh-affiliated remake) and a really terrific sci-fi horror movie from a couple of years ago called "The Substitute" (which was released on home video in the United States thanks to Raimi and Tapert). But here everything feels limp – simultaneously over and undercooked. It doesn't leave much of an impression and every scare seems to be either some lame jump scare or a fright inflicted by the shrill score. You can feel that he is trying to make it something more, and while it would have been great to have the Jewish equivalent of "The Exorcist," this sure as hell isn't it. [C-]
    Looks like this is one that could go either way.

    Support This Awesome MEN IN SUITS Doc About The Guys Inside Godzilla, Gill-man, Predator And More! | CHUD.com

    I’m happy to tell you up front that not only is the documentary detailed here already shot and edited, but that its Kickstarter project to raise funds for post-production sound and music has already crossed its goal! You can actually look forward to this film, and you can be sure it will get out there wether you have the scratch to throw at it or not, which is a good thing because I think most chewers would agree that a documentary about the men in cinema’s classic monster suits sounds like a great idea!

    A documentary from Wyrd Studios, Men In Suits is a film that honors the men who have given so many classic movie monsters their real hearts, while exploring the kind of life these men lead. The film is apparently complete at this point (save for the post-production work they’re raising money for) and features interviews with monster motion masters like…

    Doug Jones (Hellboy, Pan’s Labyrinth)
    Tom Woodruff Jr. (the Alien fims)
    Haruo Nakajima (Godzilla, Ultraman)
    Bob Burns (The Ghost Busters, Invasion of the Saucer Men)
    Brian Steele (Hellboy II, Predators)
    Douglas Tait (Zathura, Knights of Badassdom)
    John Alexander (Gorillas In The Mist, Men In Black)
    Van Snowden (H.R. Pufnstuff, Sigmund and the Sea Monsters)
    Misty Rosas (Congo, Sid The Science Kid)
    Michelan Sisti (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Dinosaurs)
    Camden Toy (Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Angel)
    Bobby Clark (Star Trek)

    And of course Guillermo Del Toro makes an appearance!

    The film seeks to explore all sides of the process, even the more painful ones (which, naturally, are the most compelling!), for example:

    ok. Not sure the world needs another TCM flick...especially a 3D one. And it looks like the best thing about it is that Ben Linus' daughter from LOST is the bound to be curtains chick...but this is a nice poster
