    THE PRESENCE Review

    Creating an original idea and executing it are very different things. The Presence manages to succeed at giving a unique story, but its implementation leaves something to be desired. Atmosphere takes hold in director Tom Provost’s debut supernatural thriller, following a woman (Mira Sorvino) visiting a cabin in the woods as an apparition stalks about. Where the film really makes its mark is how it turns genre staples on their head, but getting there may leave some underwhelmed. The film builds to an exciting climax that will leave many talking due to the interesting notions it puts forth or the confusing way it is expressed—but they will be talking.

    Sounds intersting.

    CHUD.com — DVD REVIEW: THE LAST LOVECRAFT: RELIC OF CTHULHU

    The horror comedy tone of the film easily owes a lot to films like Evil Dead 2 or Shaun of the Dead, and while the film is neither as memorable nor as funny as those films, it doesn’t hurt the genre. It never tries to be too serious, even though there is a lot of death sprinkled throughout, but it’s all very light in tone. The characters have some decent chemistry together, but my problem is that you never really feel like they’re on a “journey”. It doesn’t even feel like they travel more than a mile from where they live, and the climax of the film takes place in some sort of open canyon in a trailer. The final battle is pretty anti-climactic and poorly done, but you can never be too pissed at a film that was never aiming higher than “B-movie” anyway. This is the kind of film that you’d hate the guts out of if it was made by anybody you had even remotely heard of before, or had reason to expect greatness from.

    The film is heavily set up for a sequel, and while the intentions of the filmmakers to make another one is unclear, with a bigger budget it could actually not suck. I’m not saying this is a film you need to rush out and buy, but if you get a chance to see it and like Lovecraft (if you don’t, kill yourself) you might not be disappointed. If you’re a fan of Lovecraft it isn’t close to being the best thing he’s ever been attached to (that’s Re-Animator for you folks playing at home) but you could do far, far, worse. It’s a mostly silly film that doesn’t take itself all too seriously. I hate to spoil this, but the titular baddie never makes an appearance other than during the animated sequence in the film. Which is pretty disappointing, because I think you’ll all agree that the presence of Cthulhu (even a poor-CG Cthulhu) would elevate the quality of almost anything it was in. Oh well. Here’s hoping (ok, maybe not hoping…..maybe “mildly concerned for the potential existence of” works better) there’s a sequel!

    CHUD.com — The B Movie Column 4.9.11

    Takes a while, SCROLL DOWN...but a really good take on Of Unknown Origin. Peter Weller vs. a really big rat. Me and my stoner buddy went to see this during our, 'let's get high and go see a really bad flick' phase(Lou Ferrigno's HERCULES owns the category), anyway...this was one of those, shoulda been a laugh but wasn't. Good flick.

    Re-Animator The Musical Extends Itself Like an Unfurled Intestine | Horror Movie, DVD, & Book Reviews, News, Interviews at Dread Central

    Good news for you folks in Los Angeles who have not witnessed the absolute mad genius that is Re-Animator The Musical! More dates have been added (including midnight shows) and more gore will be flowing freely! I'm STILL washing the blood off me! What an experience!

    Starting April 22nd, midnight shows on Friday nights and 3:30 pm matinee performances on Sunday afternoons have been added at The Steve Allen Theater. Hit up that link for directions and ticket info. You WON'T be sorry! Hell, if you live out of state, believe us when we say this is totally worth flying in for!

    In 1985 Stuart Gordon directed his first feature film and created a sensation. It was “Re-Animator,” a smashing success based on a horror story by H.P. Lovecraft. The film delivered as many laughs as it did screams, making it a cult classic among horror fans, and won a Critic’s Prize at the Cannes Film Festival. Now Gordon is back with his co-writers Dennis Paoli and William J. Norris and composer/lyricist Mark Nutter to turn “Re-Animator” into a musical for the stage.

    Special effects are being done by the same guys who did them for the 1985 movie: Tony Doublin, John Naulin, and John Beuchler. And the blood will flow so freely that the first rows will literally be designated as a “splash zone.” Needless to say, the show is not for small children.

    Default MAD MONSTER magazine

    Mad Monster Magazine is ALIVE! | Horror Movie, DVD, & Book Reviews, News, Interviews at Dread Central

    From the Press Release
    In the tradition of iconic horror mags of the past century, MAD MONSTER is creepy and creative entertainment and media commentary at its best. As early as 1896 when Georges Méliès presented his film, “House of the Devil”, Horror, Sci-Fi and Fantasy movies have captured the imagination of the public. And by the 1950’s “classic” horror magazines began to do more than just delight readers. These periodicals actually turned the spotlight from the stars in front of the camera to the artists and craftspeople behind the scenes - the people who MADE the monsters we love to loathe. Disciples of the monster mag movement turned out to be people like Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Guillermo Del Toro, Tom Hanks, Billy Bob Thornton, Peter Jackson and many others.

    ok so...

    Choose - ShockTillYouDrop.com

    which I posted about earlier on this thread is a wash, but they reference The Killing Gene...

    As I watched Choose, I kept being reminded of the vastly superior The Killing Gene from 2007, directed by Tom Shankland, who went on to make the amazing “killer kids” movie The Children.

    The Killing Gene, known in its film festival life as Waz before being re-titled for domestic DVD release, is a film noir-influenced take on a killer who forces life-or-death decisions on carefully selected victims. While it sounds very similar to Choose on the surface, The Killing Gene has what Choose doesn't have: a very good screenplay, good acting and solid directing.

    Want to see a memorable and effective riff on the ideas behind Seven and Saw? Skip Choose and seek out The Killing Gene.


    Love Killing Gene...Stellen Skaarsgard is awesome. And The Children was pretty solid too.

    Film features: 30 Greatest Slasher Movies | TotalFilm.com

    I kind of give this list a little more credence based solely on the fact that I'm unfamiliar with at least half of the movies on it.

    Exclusive Update: Adam Green on Hatchet 3 | Horror Movie, DVD, & Book Reviews, News, Interviews at Dread Central

    "I am not writing the script for Hatchet 3 right now as I am focused on Killer Pizza and another project that hasn't even been announced yet," says franchise creator Adam Green. "While I intend to see Danielle Harris' "Marybeth" character return in the third installment, nothing is in stone yet, and the actual production is still a ways away as right now ArieScope is finishing Chillerama and working on other projects that need to wrap up first."

    "Given what my next year or two looks like right now, I may just be producing Hatchet 3 as stated in our official press release, so who knows what direction this could all go in under a possibly different writer or director. I'm staying as open-minded as possible. Everything else you're reading online is just excitement and enthusiasm for the next Hatchet film, which is terrific to see, but there are no accurate facts in it and there is nothing to report at this time."
