Horror Movies Uncut Friday September The 20th

Scenic Route turns into a bloody, dark humours buddy flick that would have been what really happened in Due Date. I really enjoyed this movie and the dark turn it takes at the very end really completed the film. I was upset when this hit limited theaters and did not head our way but im glad its available to take home now. It wont be on my top horror films of the year list but it may end up on my top films to see in general this year. Pick up Scenic Route this weekend as I think you will really enjoy it. 4/5 PARANORMAL ASYLUM- This is the worst movie on the list this week and really was a pain to watch. From start to finish there was a luminous effect that held through the movie. It became really annoying and so did the interaction with the spirits. The film had slight potential when it started but as soon as the evil started Asylum went downhill from there. I like that they story involved the Typhoid Mary tale but the film became stale and pointless as soon as it introduced the dark spirit. Stay away from this one folks as the film clocks in around an hour and forty five minutes so unless you don’t want to lose that time stay away.1/5 WORLD WAR Z – Read my review for World War Z here, I really enjoyed World War Z and was anxious to see how it would translate to the home audience. So far so good as we live in an age of big televisions so big blockbuster films work at home too.

‘Presto’: Foxtel launches movies on demand

you have to be ready for that,a he says. aThatas whatas great about this movie. Itas a mix of veterans and new faces. And it could be done in-pocket and in-town.a McDonald says he has complete faith in his Canadian cast, and heas never felt the need to look outside Canada to find the right players. aItas a confidence thing,a he says. aWe have a lot of rising stars in this country, but they arenat going to get you the big budget.a At least not until they make it in the U.S a which generally makes them inaccessible. Witness the rise of Ryan Reynolds, Ellen Page and Ryan Gosling, Canadian actors who are now prohibitively pricey, and take on Canadian projects only as labours of love, if they agree to participate at all. Sweeney says heas done the Hollywood actor thing, and he wasnat enamoured with the extra hurdles it brought to the process. The TIFF veteran and director of Dirty and Last Wedding says he needed a fresh start and a big idea with a small budget when he set to work on The Dick Knost Show, the story of a sports talk announcer who suffers a concussion. aWe didnat over-think this one at all,a he says. aWe needed a project for winter that wouldnat make us go insane. This was it, and it was a blast.a Sweeney says part of the creative freedom was the result of keeping the budget low, but also building the idea as a potential TV series, with the feature serving as the pilot.

FILL THE VOID: One star out of five a Like suffocating beneath a thick layer of protective plastic, Fill the Void feels like slow death. Indeed, if you ever wondered what it might feel like to be zipped up in a body bag while still breathing, but unable to move, this is the movie that brings it all home as it forces the viewer to accept a lack of oxygen and freedom without a fight. As itas set against the backdrop of Israelas ultra-Orthodox Jewish community, weare introduced to the beautiful Shira (Hadas Yaron), an 18-year-old woman who looks up to her older sister, who is about to give birth. When her sister dies and leaves behind a widower and an infant, Shiraas grieving mother begs her to marry the man left behind so the family can stay in Israel. Shira wrestles for a moment, but decides her own happiness must come second in this world where men control everything, especially the assignment of female value and worthiness. Because the movie tries to camouflage the inherent sexism through emotional device a not to mention cheap star filters to diffuse the light a it feels like manipulative propaganda. Special features include commentary and more. NIRVANA: LIVE AND LOUD: Three stars out of five a The ghost of Kurt Cobain may not be happy about the apparent cash grab, but he can at least take pride in the show. Live and Loud is a complete record of Nirvanaas 1993 show at Seattleas Pier 48, fleshed out with new concert footage sampled from other gigs on the same tour. Itas complete with new bonus material, and thereas no doubt this cut-for-cash doc features the band at its grungiest best and offers those who never got a chance to see them live a close approximation of the real deal. With its track listing that includes Lithium, Drain You, Heart-Shaped Box and Come As You Are, you get the grit a but not the hit.
