Intense Final Trailer For Miguel Angel Vivas' KIDNAPPED ( Secuestrados)

No comments: Links to this post

Miguel Angel Vivas Secuestrados aka KIDNAPPED gets its final intense trailer which in cuts could be the closest movie to censorship  cuts to A Serbian Film but its not as grotesque though but still disturbing. Vivas wants you to everything not miss anything and its all shot in 12 parts, so no blinking. The movie looks very intense, disturbing piece that must be seen as a whole to appreciate what Vivas is trying to do.

Jaime, Marta and their daughter Isa have just moved into a luxurious new house. Marta begins to prepare the dinner and puts a bottle of champagne on ice to celebrate the move. As night falls, three hooded men violently force their way into the house. Panic ensues and soon the real violence will begin.

What do you get when you cross a French Sculptor with Dave Cheungs Aeon Flux? CABLE  a short animated feature from  Remi Gamietter which took him over two years to create using no motion capture techniques which the whole feel of the movie a jaggey affair visually similar to Aeon Flux but a little more organic I say, there is a feel of early sega style gaming design too. Nothing spectacular here but its worthy of been watched  as is the artist first short movie.
Seething with rage, a woman dives into the deepest darkness of this world:

a tortured tower made of steel and cables amid which she throws herself headlong to recover her three abducted little girls.

Full short movie after the break....

No Crocidile Shoes in this movie just Crocidile heads with trailer For KNIFER

Not as maniac as Gaspar Noe but just as odd as well as compelling below after the break you'll find the trailer for KNIFER.
This is not exactly a new trailer as I posted this originally in August as Macherovgaltis(Μαχαιροβγάλτης)  but now the trailer has been repackaged with its new English name KNIFER. Thanks to the sucess of Dogtooth, Attenburg around the Film Festival circuit, now Yannis Economides is trying to follow suit and looking at the evidence he should do fairly well. So if you like your movies a mixture of arthouse elegence, weirdness with plenty of drama you should check this one out ....

Old School Style chiller from Vassilis Katsikis in LURK

No comments: Links to this post
source Quietearth
You could say this is back to basic old school style chiller many others like myself call it a mindf**k, a pyschological thriller. LURK is directed by Greek filmmaker Vassilis Katsikis   who had a Greek box office hit in 2008 with the documentary CCTV. Now Lurk is his next venture and he has the dream of breaking into English speaking film industry and this has been filmed in his homeland but its all in English! Will this be a sucess in English speaking countries? Im affraid until he has well known faces be it the indie movie circuit this will be another miss.
As for the story of the movie its about a woman called anna (Tess Jackon-Spentzos ) whose home is invaded by a mysterious creature which turns her life upside down charming her first and eventually making her turn against her husband and eventually herself.
This trailer could make you go loopy lou trying to decipher what its all about!, trailer after the break....

"It's the season to be Exorcised La la la laaa!"  Old Nick and his disciples are bit of hot property in movieland at the momment with next week's release (Sept 3rd) Daniel Stamm's Last Exorcism (out now in USA), also The Night Chronicles Devil coming our way too and now we have another contender with EXORCISMUS.
The movie comes from the briliant mind of Manuel Carballo  who brought us [REC] and so Spain has brought us the one person cam zombie genre who better to delve into the underbelly of the Devil? Despite been released by Filmmax this is Carballo's first delve into the English speaking movies and in USA this movie is called The Possession of Emma Evans but in 2011 when the movie is due to be released again another similar movie of Possession of David O'Reilly, so now the main name is Exorcismus.
Expect this movie to enter the festival network very soon in 2010 early 2011, check out the new trailer after the break..

Fifteen-year-old Emma Evans is like any other teenage girl; she thinks that her parents don't understand her. She longs for independence and a life free of family ties and responsibilities and she is prepared to do anything to achieve it. But one day she will be forced to face up to the consequences of her actions.

Life seems to be carrying on as normal, until one day Emma starts experiencing frightening fits. Her parents are convinced that her problems are either medical or psychological, but when doctors´ tests are unable to draw any conclusions, the family is forced to look elsewhere for answers.

It all started off as a bit of fun, Emma never really believed it, but the truth is there is something dark and sinister within her, and it won't take long to surface.

TIFF 2010:Trailer For Koen Mortier's 22ND OF MAY

No comments: Links to this post
Koen Mortier made a name for himself with his debut movie EX-Drummer a movie about disabled guys creating a  rockband who hire a local writer to play drums and all there new drummer can do is manipulate them. The movie gots a massive cult following worldwide and rightly so and now the Belgium director is back with a more shattering  movie 22 MAI (may) which is due to have its world premiere at the Toronto Film Festival.
The movie centre's arounda security guard called sam who is a guard at a small shopping mall that becomes a victim of a terrorist explosion, its a more somber affair than Mortier's previous movie and I really love the slow motion of the trailer as when life changing events happen they happen fast and reality doesn't sink in but if slow things down you start to get a feel of whats just happened! Check out the first trailer after the break...

... While everything around him is burning, Sam tries his best to help. He drags a woman outside against her will. She is screaming, struggling to get back inside to save her child. But Sam is already back on the scene, trying to rescue other victims, all of them just as helpless as he is. They are strewn over the floor, covered in blood, their clothes shredded to pieces, feeling utterly lost. As their cries turn into screams, Sam is overpowered by fear and panic. First there was the shock, then the realization of what happened. Without thinking, he starts to run, turning his back to the apocalyptic scene. He flees, running along the streets of a city that once felt as familiar as a friend, but now seems more like a dark monster ...

This movie is soon to make its international premiere at the San Sebastian Film Festival CHRZEST (The Christening) by Marcin Wrona. 
Due to the artish style to this movie will make sure this movie will pick up a few accolades along the road when it does its rounds of the film festivals and I agree with this source of this trailer it does have a mixture of the movies Brothers mixed with History of violence. The whole movie looks to have click well together the cinematography, the intergation of the scenes into action into drama, so if your looking for a slighty different spin on the crime thriller movie, this could be the one to check out.

Michal has what he always dreamed of: a beautiful wife named Magda, a newborn son, his own firm. He chooses an old friend, Janek, to be the godfather of his child. This is just the beginning of Michal's plan, who asks his friend to take an interest in his wife... At the beginning the plan works out, but it becomes increasingly difficult for Michal to come to terms with it. Michal knows his deeply hidden past will inevitably come back to him, and Janek will have to make a decision, of which he will never forget the consequences.

Micahel Madsen is a Wall Street Trader in KRACH

There was a time when Michael Madsen would pop up virtually every big hollywood movie on the planet then suddenly he would dissappear of the face of the earth. Then a cult type movie would come out there he is again then vavoom, no where to be seen until now is in a French movie by Fabrice Genestal, KRACH.
With the world's economy in such a bad state it would be only a matter of time old school Wall Street trading movies from 1980's would be back on our screens, okay we Know Wall Street 2 by Olivier Stone is heading our way in October but the French look likely to beat him with this movie with Gilles Lellouche a Wall Street trader fired by his boss (Madsen) for loosing $millions and he decides to against Madsen.
Will this be any good? hard to tell maybe in Native France but as outside French speaking world probably not though Madsen does look like a real badass in this! Trailer after the break...

SIMON WERNER A DISPARU (lights Out) was a late inclusion for Cannes this year and despite been shown late night it did receive for good reviews. The movie is directed by Fabrice Gobert and its a stylish movie set in a High school with a excellent soundtrack coming from none other than indie rock icons Sonic Youth. The name of the movie may not be the catchiest titles in the world but as they say never judge a book by its cover and this movie is a good one, trailer and synopsis after the break....

Unsettling Trailer For Dutch Drama The Odd One Out (Vreemd bloed)

No comments: Links to this post
source QuietEarth
About 11 years ago whilst at college I had a part time job at a well known British supermarket chain (wont name names but a tv chef in there ads likes his pukka) and how they worked and I was put in the butcher section. I really did hate cut things, blood out of the packaging and I'm not a vegetarian but the funny thing was the person I replace was a vegan! how could the girl work in such an environment!

When you watch VREEMD-BLOED (The Odd One out) who feel for Jere the youngest of a family of violent butchers, he is the odd one out, he doesnt want to be a butcher but he is forced to follow the family tradition. The whole trailer is like Jere's one big nightmare as he learns the cruelity at a young age the surreal trailer glides throug his life and after the openingyou think this will be a gorefest movie but it's not.

As they say never judge a book by its cover, trailer after the break...

Baran bo Odar's movie THE SILENCE (Das letzte Schweigen ), has a sense of tense darkness that's frightly realistic with the whole feel of the movie draw you in to watch it what happens next. Serial Killers unfortunately are reality sadly they exist and when someone creates a movie protraying one of these killer you most times fell automatically its a movie nothing more but with this you feel realism and actually feel for the killers victims.

This is impressive looking check out the trailer now with English subtitles after the break...

On a hot summer day, a bicycle is found in a wheat field - the exact scene of a crime committed 23 years ago. This time 13 year-old Sinikka is missing. While the investigator of the unresolved case and a young colleague start their inquest, for Sinikka's parents an agonizing period of waiting and uncertainty begins. The summer heat lies over the modest family homes like a bell jar and, behind the doors, once intact worlds begin to fall apart.
