    Fantastic Fest Review: Proxy | Shock Till You Drop

    Proxy does slow down a little at the halfway point. The first hour (at two hours it does run a bit long) is almost nonstop surprises and craziness, and the rampant unpredictability comes to an end after a shocking scene in Melanie’s house. The second hour focuses more on the mundane, following characters at work or arguing with others or having lunch, and it drags a little.

    That first hour is remarkable though, and the last 15 or so minutes of this puzzling, unnerving movie are nearly as great. Even after two hours, most of the characters are hard to figure out. Much less difficult to decipher is the notion that after this story of madness and violence in small town America and the equally intriguing and unsettling Scalene, director Zack Parker is a major talent.
    Ok, bump this up to top of the WANNASEE list. Keep hearing how bat**** crazy/different this is, and Scalene is a terrific little indie horror flick.

    12 shocking opening sequences of classic horror movies | Blastr

    Man...Ghost Ship is AWESOME. Terribly underrated, great cast, and a terrific stinger of an ending. Has that lurid feel of an old school video nasty.

    Review: Vincenzo Natali's 'Haunter' Starring Abigail Breslin | The Playlist

    There are long stretches of the movie where literally nothing happens, and Lisa is just crawling around and digging up carpet and trying to put the pieces together. We're all for "deliberate pacing," but this is better described as "patience testing." None of the spark or verve that is present in Natali's other films, including the often imitated "Cube" (which has inspired everything from the first "Resident Evil" film to the entirety of the "Saw" franchise), is present here. It's as dusty as a Victorian ghost story without any of the actual scares. And what's truly depressing, especially after "Splice," one of the more openly confrontational movies released by a major studio in recent years (one that challenged gender roles and made audience members of either sex cross their legs in discomfort), is how timid and apolitical "Haunted" is. The scenario is ripe for metaphoric embellishment but Natali chooses to leave it alone. He probably thinks he's doing something that is both classical and irreverent, flipping the ghost story on its ear. But instead it's utterly unconvincing and not scary in the slightest. And maybe that's Natali being unexpected again – no one could have known he would make a movie this bland. [D]

    Universal Monsters Cinematic Universe in the Works from Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman | Collider

    In a recent interview with IGN, Orci says they’re looking to go make sure their lead characters move over into other movies [via CS]:

    “There’s an interesting thing that could happen at Universal where they have this amazing library of their old monsters and these kinds of heroes, and the idea of trying to create a universe. Van Helsing, and we’re also producing The Mummy for them. We’re kind of imagining updating these kinds of things. You don’t want to just make remakes when you’re doing a thing, unless it’s worthy of being a remake, but when you have an idea for something that can actually be made different and yet be true to what it was. We just had a notion of how to make it modern and have a slightly different tone. It’s not going to be just a remake.”
    In my opinion...the reason why these relaunches don't work is that they try too hard to update modernize characters that are beautiful in there simplicity. I do not want a cgi Creature from the Black Lagoon/Wolf Man. But that's a double edger because young audiences won't necessarily flock to old school production values. Some things simply don't carry over, and despite how good the classic monsters are their time may have passed.

    Agreed on Ghost Ship, I just discussed that opening scene a couple nights ago in a FB thread...

    24Framespersecond.net - In A Nutshell: V/H/S/2 Review

    Found footage thrillers have been done to death of course, but V/H/S/2 injects new life into a tired format, and Safe Haven is worth the price of the DVD alone. Recommended.
    Safe Haven is one of the best short films you are ever likely to see. Words cannot describe how satisfying this installment is, which could also be the films undoing, because nothing else comes close to this blistering installment.

    24Framespersecond.net - Irish horror CITADEL: DVD review

    What starts out as a very good, powerful drama with a fantastic performance from the main character is ultimately let down by a bad story, with pointless horror connotations. A Citadel, according to the Cambridge dictionary is "a strong castle in or near a city, where people can shelter from danger". So why this movie is called Citadel is anyone’s guess. It's a powerful title that ultimately adds to the disappointment.

    Disagree. This was a tidy little low budge flick. Nothing spectacular, but entertaining.

    I soooo want to see this, but the true horrors of V/H/S 1(the money I wasted on it) prevent me from biting.
