No comments: Links to this post
Brit crime thriller The Fall Of The Essex Boys, which hits cinemas 8th February, and we have a brand new clip, showcasing hat the film has to offer.

Film arrives 8th February for limited cinema release before it's home release on 18 February.

An 18 year old girl going into a coma after taking an ecstasy pill from a bad batch is the catalyst that sets in motion a series of events that leads to the demise of one of the most infamous criminal organisations in British History. Detective Inspector Stone steps in to try and put pressure on an untouchable unit of criminals – Pat Tate, Tony Tucker and Craig Rolfe.

Watch The Trailer For Brutal Brit Flick The Fall Of The Essex Boys

No comments: Links to this post

Fans of Rise And Fall of A White Collar Hooligan, Bonded With Blood, Jack Says, Rise Of The Footsoldier  will want to check out Paul Tanter's The Fall Of The Essex Boys. The brutal new Brit crime flick follows the rise and violent fall of the notorious Essex Boys, one of the most feared criminal gangs in Britain’s history. The 2000 Essex Boys starring Sean Bean, Charlie Creed Miles and Tom Wilkinson was loosely based on 1995 Rettendon gruesome triple gangland  murders, and now another new  look real life crime.

I haven't seen the Essex Boys but have heard quite a few positive things about the film, however Paul Tanter has his work cut out to convince cinephiles his version of events is worth your hard earned cash. His previous films especially Rise And Fall of A White Collar Hooligan was nothing but atrocious which is a shame as we really want to give British film making especially independent made films our support. On evidence of this trailer the violence levels looked to have risen compared to previous films, its brutal in nature, very gritty drug fuelled looking film and the directors experience in British gangland style films he should at least deliver something gripping (we hope)

The Fall Of The Essex Boys has a familiar cast with Nick NevernSimon Phillips, Robert Cavanah all Tanter regulars and their joined by Kate Magowan, Kierston Wareing, Peter Woodward, Craig Rolfe and Roman Kemp. The Fall Of The Essex Boys will be released in UK 8th February 2013.

Frightfest 2012 - Outpost II: Black Sun Review

No comments: Links to this post


















During the 1945 endgame of World War II, German scientist Klausener worked on frightening new technology with the power to create an immortal Nazi army. Now a NATO task force is hurriedly deployed to Eastern Europe to uncover what sinister enemy exactly appears to be mercilessly killing everything in its path.  It soon becomes clear that what they are facing is no ordinary foe. Only Lena, a gutsy investigator on the trail of notorious war criminal Klausener, can accept the reality of what they are up against – a battalion of living dead Nazi Storm Troopers. With the help of Wallace, an adventurer who has been chasing Gestapo secrets for years, the duo team up with a Special Forces Unit to venture deep behind enemy lines. Their mission: to fight their way back to the source of this evil zombie platoon and prevent supernatural technology being used to create the Fourth Reich.

Making its UK debut four years after the original, Outpost II: Black Sun is to Outpost what [REC]2 is to [REC] or what Aliens is to Alien. In other words, consider Outpost 2 the action-movie sequel to the horrific original. Yes, this sequel replaces the atmosphere and horror of the first film with scene after scene of machine-gun toting soldier battling lumbering Nazi zombies. In fact the film has more in common with the Resident Evil franchise, being less about the zombies and their devastation and more about the action set pieces. Don’t get me wrong, the zombies in Outpost II are bloody brutal blighters, eviscerating and digesting their human prey. It’s just that they also suffer from the same problem zombies had in low-budget zombie flicks of the 80s… they look like men wearing rubber masks!

Interestingly Outpost II: Black Sun doesn’t waste time catching up on events that took place in the first film – it references them yes, but doesn’t spend any time dwelling on them. However it turns out that bar knowing who the villainous old Nazis are you don’t really need to have seen the first one to watch the sequel. You might not know who one or two of the referenced characters, including someone who died in the original movie, are but that doesn’t stop you from “enjoying” the film.

The big problem with Outpost II, besides being a 15-rated action movie rather than a gory zombie flick, is that the cast all seem to be taking the film way too seriously. The recently released Nazi zombie flick Bloodstorm was a whole lot schlockier than this but thanks to the cast knowing its limitations it was a fun, if dumb, movie. However here it’s the opposite. Everyone takes it so bloody seriously! Its not high art people, it’s a zombie movie! It’s almost like everyone involved thought the were making the Schindler’s List of straight to DVD horror movies.

In case you’re wondering, this does set things up for a third film. So it turns out Outpost really is the UK’s version of Paul W.S. Anderson’s Resident Evil franchise after all… It won’t stay dead!
