On 15th September 2009, I started Cinehouse as an alternative to my main site The Peoples Movies. Giving me a chance to talk and review the alternative side of the mainstream film. From World Cinema, Arthouse, Indie film, Short film, the weird and wonderful. For about 6-7 the journey was great though bumpy one. Then came along some wonderful people who decided to help keep the site going and did a brilliant job. But even those great things must end and today Cinehouse 9 years, 6 days old I've Decided to put Cinehouse into Hiatus. Not the end but at the moment closed for now.

Like to thank everyone  who has written for the site, read, likes, shared, gave opinion on the reviews and posts. If you're looking for World Cinema, indie, arthouse, classic film head over to The Peoples Movies which we'll cover more of what we did here.

Michael Madsen to attend European premiere of THE NINTH CLOUD at RDFF

No comments: Links to this post

THE NINTH CLOUD, Jane Spencer’s dark, philosophical drama, will receive its European Premiere at this year’s Raindance Film festival, on Monday 29 September (8.50pm) at the Vue Piccadilly. The film’s stars will be attending, including Michael Madsen and Leo Gregory. Director Jane Spencer and producer Julia Verdin will also be attending and all will be giving a Q+A after the screening.

Set in 90s London, THE NINTH CLOUD tells the story of Zena (Megan Maczko), who, trying to escape the grief of her family being killed in a plane crash, becomes infatuated with fellow American Bob (Michael Madsen), an enigmatic but failed poet and writer, who has taken up residency in a Hackney squat. Searching for hope through Bob’s artistic visions, whilst clinging on to her fragile grasp of reality, Zena collides and colludes with an array of desperados, angst-ridden IT girls and debauched failed artists. Two men in particular zero in on her: Brett, a narcissistic socialite (Leo Gregory), and Jonny, a drink-drowning musician searching for a way to re-surface (Jean Hughes Anglade). But it is to the unattainable Bob that Zena is mystically drawn to – as if only he holds the answer to the meaning of her life...

Jane Spencer’s tragi-comedy takes us on a journey through the underbelly of 90s London where loss, love and the meaning of existence are given a uniquely surreal twist.

She comments: “The film is about a group of people from all walks of life, trying to find hope in a world full of darkness and tragedy. Zena is a dreamer, who, against all circumstance, is trying to make something good happen in the world - even at a very high personal cost. I grew up watching films from the 1960's 'free cinema' movements and idolised the work of Lindsay Anderson, Tony Richardson, John Schlesinger, and also the philosophical films of that time; the French films of Truffaut, and especially Jacques Rivette. I suppose THE NINTH CLOUD is a 'homage' to those films, in a way
Producer Julia Verdin adds: “One of the things that attracted me to this project is that it is a film about escapism. All of the character is their different ways are trying to escape from reality and living in worlds that they have created for themselves and so blocked from moving forward by their own perceptions which i think is something that audiences will identify with.

The screening will take place at The Vue Piccadilly at 8.50pm on Monday 29 September. There is a second screening, also at the Vue Piccadilly, on Tues 30 at 4pm.

Send In The Vikings In UK trailer For Hammer Of Gods

No comments: Links to this post
If your looking for a fight these bruisers the vikings will give you one and probably take your life too! Seasoned tv director(Doctor Who) Farren Blackburn's Hammer Of The Gods may do the trick. Plenty of sword fighting, blood, hairy blond people spitting out blood and plenty testosterone. It looks your typical 2am Syfy film but it has a few familiar faces such as Charlie Bewley (Twilight) leads the cast as the young Steinar, alongside James Cosmo, Clive Standen, Elliot Cowan, Glynis Barber, Michael Jibson, and Ivan Kaye.

Expect this one to appear in UK&Ireland around Spring 2013 for now check out the UK trailer below

Set in Viking Britain in 871 AD, Hammer of the Gods is a visceral, intense tale set in a world whose only language is violence. A young Viking warrior, Steinar (Charlie Bewley), is sent by his father the king on a quest to find his estranged brother, who was banished from the kingdom many years before. Steinar's epic journey across terrifyingly hostile territory gradually sees him emerge as the man his father wants him to be - the ruthless and unforgiving successor to his throne.

Zombies Go Mexican Arthouse In Trailer to Halley

No comments: Links to this post
I may have deceived everyone with the use 'zombie' so apologies there, however we are keeping with the undead  with Halley new film from Mexican filmmaker Sebastian Hofmann. The film was originally screened at this years Sundance film festival Hofmann's film takes an arthouse look at the undead though whose seem to have found a new approach to the very tired crowded sub-genre. Don't expect lots of running, chasing ala Zack Synder's zombies or even George Romero style either expect something a little more atmospheric a little more moodier.

Still a really intriguing looking film, check out the trailer below....

Alberto is dead and can no longer hide it. Make-up and perfume can no longer conceal his quickly decomposing body. Dismayed, he decides to withdraw from the world. But before surrendering to his living death, Alberto forms an unusual friendship with Luly, the manager of the 24-hour gym where he works as a night guard.

No comments: Links to this post

MONSTER PICTURES present “DEAR GOD NO!”, a twisted fairy tale for beer drinkers and hell-raisers, released on DVD on 14 January 2013

“Dear God No!” is a tribute to a lost regional drive-in film from 1976 that doesn’t rely heavily on computer gimmicks, and cuts to the core of what made these low-budget films shockingly fun.

The surviving members sought refuge in a secluded cabin deep in the North Georgia mountains. What first must of seemed like easy prey for a home invasion, became a living nightmare of depravity and violence. A young innocent girl being held captive may hold the key to the twisted secrets locked in the basement and the killing machine feasting on human flesh in the forest outside.

“Dear God No!” is a brand new biker/horror/sexploitation feature written & directed by exploitation aficionado James Bickert, released on DVD in the UK by Monster Pictures UK on 14 January 2013.

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.

Synopsis:The 1995 Rettendon Triple Murder. Not since Jack The Ripper has a killer’s identity so captivated the nation. The gruesome death of three drug dealers has spawned a miniature industry – books, TV programmes, merchandise, conventions and – of course – feature films. The appetite for gory detail and suppressed gangland secrets remains unabated, and is constantly titillated further with new tales of football hooliganism, international drug smuggling and police conspiracies of silence.
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. The Essex Boys. In order to bring the criminals   down, he must act out of the law to get things done.
As the Essex Boys grow stronger and more fearless, their addiction to drugs and power slowly starts to spiral out of control and they soon start to develop enemies everywhere.As Stone starts to see the cracks forming in their organisation and with pressure from his peers he soon realises that bringing them down will be inevitable but the real test will come when he must find a way of getting his man on the inside out safely.

UK Trailer + Release Details For Midnight Son

No comments: Links to this post
Monster Pictures present MIDNIGHT SON, the story of a young man's thirst for human blood which threatens to destroy his relationship with the woman he loves. The film is set to receive a limited UK theatrical release on 11 January 2013.

From the director of The Blair Witch Project, MIDNIGHT SON is the story of Jacob (Zak Kilberg,Zombie Strippers!, Lincoln Heights), a young man confined to a life of isolation, due to a rare skin disorder that prevents him from being exposed to sunlight. His world opens up when he meets Mary (Maya Parish, How I Met Your Mother), a local bartender, and falls in love. Tragically, Jacob’s actions become increasingly bizarre as he struggles to cope with the effects of his worsening condition.

Forced by the disease to drink human blood for sustenance, he must control his increasingly violent tendencies as local law enforcement narrow their focus on him as a suspect in a series of grisly murders.

Directed by Scott Leberecht, a well-known name on the festival circuit, MIDNIGHT SON is a twisting, terrifying tale of vampirism and humanity and how the two conditions can intertwine. Having wowed audiences when it received its UK premiere at Frightfest, the film was recently screened to a packed audience at Horrorthon in Dublin. The film receives a limited UK theatrical release on 11 January 2013 followed by a DVD release in time for Valentine’s Day on 11 February 2013.

Watch The UK Trailer For BIFA Nominated Broken Starring Tim Roth

No comments: Links to this post

When you receive 9 nominations from the British Independent Film Awards for your debut feature, Rufus Norris' Broken is certainly a film we should take notice off especially  at the early festival preview to go by. Tonight we have a new trailer for the UK indie which boasts a strong cast of Tim Roth, Cillian Murphy a film looks like it'll deliver on the dramatics with hints of something very dark lurking under the serene  face British suburbia.

Broken set in North London when young man Robert 'Broken' Buckley is at the wrong end of a brutal beating from neighbour Mr Oswald whose daughter makes a false accusation. As Robert struggles with what's just happened to him next door neighbour Archie (Roth), a Lawyer whose 11year old daughter Skunk may have witnessed Robert her neighbour get the beating.

Broken looks an intense little character drama instead of the usual generic gritty London style drama we do seem to see unfortunately more off. Eloise Laurence  who plays Skunk, as well as the film's narrator delivers a really good debut performance and in the trailer it does suggest her own home things might not be as hunky dory as they seem. Not saying this trailer is fantastic nor poor but what it is, it's effective hinting on some dark truths maybe lurking under the carpet but never revealing to much to spoil things.

Broken is set for a Spring 2013 UK Release and also stars  Rory Kinnear, Robert Emms.

New Trailer & Clip For Takashi Miike's Shield Of Straw

No comments: Links to this post
Takashi Miike is a big favorite at Cinehouse HQ so when his Ace Attorney recently played in Glasgow at Scotland Loves Anime we where a bit annoyed we couldn't see it. Next spring his next film Shield Of Straw (Wara No Tate)will be released in Japan and our friends at Twitch have gotten their hands on the film's latest teaser trailer and clip.

Starring Fujiwara Tatsuya who may not be familiar by name but recognizable from the cult film Battle Royale, Deathnote and Toyoda Toshiaki's I'm Flash where he played a cult leader. For his latest film he will be becoming a cold hearted confessed child killer. Based on a Kuichi Kazuhiro novel Shield of Straw when a child killer (Fujiwara) is captured he must be escorted across country by 2 cops (Osawa Takao and Matsushima Nanako)to face trail. What may sound a simple task but the grandfather of the young victim is a very wealthy man not happy that things will be sorted out the conventional way offers 12 million to anyone who can kill his grandchild's killer on route to court.

This film looks like it'll challenge the morality and power of money and the control it has over people. What people will do to get their hands on the amount of money on offer is crazy, will there a psychological thriller mix thrown in too? All will be revealed when the film is release 26 April 2013 in Japan.

Ninagawa is a powerful man in Japanese politics and with top economic connections.His granddaughter is then murdered. The suspect is Kunihide Kiyomaru (Tatsuya Fujiwara). Kunihide Kiyomaru has a prior conviction for assaulting and killing a girl 8 years ago. The police could never apprehend the suspect in the prior killing.
Three months after the murder of his granddaughter, Ninagawa places a whole page ad in the 3 big Japanese newspapers. The ad states "Please kill this man Kunihide Kiyomaru and I will pay you 1,000,000,000 yen as a reward." Meanwhile, Kunihide Kiyomaru sees the ad and begins to fear for his life. Kunihide Kiyomaru then turns himself in at the Fukuoka Police Station. Five detectives from the security section (SP) of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department travel to Fukuoka to escort Kunihide Kiyomaru back to the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department. The distance between Fukuoka and Tokyo is apprixmately 1,200 km. During their fateful trip, a significant portion of the Japanese population plot to kill Kunihide Kiyomaru. Many of those people, actually pursue Kunihide Kiyomaru while he goes back to Tokyo to get the 1 billion yen reward. The lonely fight of the five detectives to protect this man begins ...

Cinehouse of Horrors #4

1 comment: Links to this post

Greetings Horror Fans! Cinehouse’s fortnightly horror news round-up has had a bit of a prolonged break but we’re back on track to deliver the most important highlights in grotesque cinema over the past four weeks.

Starting with the classic-horror related news the new Child’s Play film Curse of Chucky has an apt and potty-mouthed tagline which you can catch on the promo poster over at Bleeding Cool. The sixth instalment in the franchise sees Chucky again voiced by cult favourite Brad Dourif and helmed by Don Mancini, who created Chucky back in 1988. Mancini’s return to the series as writer and director is surely a sign that Chucky fans can start getting pretty excited.

Next up, Joe Dante fans (GREMLINS!) will be pleased to hear the director will be returning behind the camera to work on a supernatural thriller called Air Disturbance. Robert Englund (Freddy Krueger) will star as a religious zealot opposite Dylan Walsh’s widower Sam Davidson as the two try to come to terms with supernatural occurrences around the plane. 
Hammer has unveiled the first photo from its next feature The Quiet Ones, the infamous British powerhouse of horror saw a disappointing resurrection with The Resident but picked up its game with The Woman in Black last year so we’re pretty excited about this. The story follows an unconventional professor who takes his best and brightest off campus for a ground-breaking experiment: to create a poltergeist by harnessing negative human energy. Now, take the fact that Jared Harris is playing the charismatic professor and the film seems like its in good standing to be an interesting watch.

Unfortunately Tobe Hooper’s latest film Djinn has had some problems picking up a distributor over the past year but hopefully the American Film Market can help put the film in better standing. To help spread the word there’s photos and a trailer over at Shock till you Drop, check them out.
We’re pretty fond of Poe adaptations here, considering Poe played a pretty integral part to the crafting of what we loosely refer to as modern horror, so it’s a pleasure to announce that Poe's  'The System of Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether’ is to be adapted for screen under the title Eliza Graves. Brad Anderson, director of The Machinist and Session 9, has replaced Oren Pelli (Paranormal Activity) as director on the production due to start filming next year.
Adam Gierasch’s Schism caught our eye fairly quickly in the long list of exciting upcoming  projects thanks to its striking old-school poster. The synopsis sounds pretty awesome too and you can read it here. Considering its in post production now, you won’t have long to wait for some trans-dimensional mind screwing.

Last but not least we have a stellar collection of trailers for you folks, the much anticipated Evil Dead remake trailer proves it might actually be something special and at least its got its eyes on the right kind of…"ew”. The Silent Night remake looks like this years Christmas bloodbath, hopefully it will surprise and expand on the original, and at the very least I think we're all happy to pay to see Malcolm Mcdowell hunt down another psychopath. At long last we finally have the trailer for World War Z which is genuinely thrilling and kinda unsettling, perhaps the greatest zombie epic since Dawn of the Dead? We leave it up to you. And for all those Don Coscarelli fans who've been sitting on seat-edge gagging for the next slice of Phantasm, we do not have a Phantasm 5 trailer. What we do have though is the trailer for Coscarelli’s latest mind-fuck John Dies at the End. Fret not, for Coscarelli has, since the film’s completion, admitted that Phantasm 5 is back on his mind as something that has to be done!

DVD Releases

November is a quiet month for horror releases, but we have carefully selected some of the standout home video releases.

Alfred Hitchcock - The Masterpiece Collection (Blu-Ray) - 12/11/12
Some of the iconic director's finest features are pain-stakingly restored to stunning quality for the Blu-Ray release of The Masterpiece Collection. Standouts include the unforgettable Psycho, the hugely underrated The Trouble with Harry, the terrifying The Birds and gritty Frenzy.

Excision - 12/11/12
Excision is one of these films we cannot recommend enough. In a similar vein to Carrie, Richard Bates Jr.'s tale of teenage angst follows oddball teenager Pauline, who has a fixation with performing surgery. A cast dozens of cult film veterans  including John Waters, Traci Lords, Ray Wise, Malcolm McDowell, Roger Bart and a stellar leading turn from AnnaLynne McCord, make Excision a must see.

The House of the Laughing Windows - 19/11/12
Released by Shameless, who pride themselves on selling the trashiest, most depraved European horrors, have set their sights on The House of the Laughing Windows. This Italian horror sees a young artist discovering the twisted, sleazy past of the tranquil town that he is staying. Fans of giallo are like to be in their element with this 1976 feature.

That's it from us, see you in two weeks!

Daily Mail Readers Aren't Human! New Sightseers Trailer

No comments: Links to this post
Thank the heavens for Ben Wheatley, finally someone who knows Daily Mail readers aren't human! Ah don't hire the firing squad just yet and check out the new 60 second UK trailer for Ben Wheatley's Sightseers which after a great first trailer  exploits the film's dark humour, the quirky feel and why Sightseers might be the surprise hit film of the year!

To be honest Ben Wheatley's last film The Kill List divided opinions at The People's Movies and Cinehouse HQ when it came out last year, we all came to an agreement it was confusing as well as overrated. So when Sightseers promotion started  we selfishly greeted the new film with a lot of scepticism even with the fantastic reviews from Cannes but like all good things it grows on you.

Chris (Steve Oram) wants to show Tina (Alice Lowe) his world and he wants to do it his way - on a journey through the British Isles in his beloved Abbey Oxford Caravan. Tina's led a sheltered life and there are things that Chris needs her to see - the Crich Tramway Museum, the Ribblehead Viaduct, the Keswick Pencil Museum and the rolling countryside that accompanies these wonders in his life.But it doesn't take long for the dream to fade. Litterbugs, noisy teenagers and pre-booked caravan sites, not to mention Tina's meddling mother, soon conspire to shatter Chris's dreams and send him, and anyone who rubs him up the wrong way, over a very jagged edge...

If your like me a generation who grew up with some childhood summer holidays in caravans or caravan Parks  around the UK some of the things will strike a chord, though some of the UK humour might be lost in translation if your not familiar. We're alot more optimistic Sightseers will be far superior film than The Kill List, with 7 nominations for British Independent Film Awards before it's even been released speaks volumes for the film.

We're watching this film next week so stay tuned for our review, Sightseers will be released in UK&Ireland 30th November, there's no confirmed American release but expect sometime 2013.

Watch The Brutal Trailer For UK Indie Horror The Seasoning House

No comments: Links to this post

Picking up some great positive word of mouth feedback former SFX turned Director Paul Hyett's The Seasoning House has been touring the film festival circuit.The film was one of the highlight's of this years Film4 Frightfest and now Kaleidoscope Entertainment has picked up the UK rights for the film and they have sent us an harrowing UK trailer.

The much anticipated directorial debut from Paul Hyett, one of modern films’ most respected special make-up effects designers, whose credits include Gladiator, The Hours, The Descent, Eden Lake, The Woman in Black and many more, The Seasoning House is a taught and claustrophobic exploration of psychological terror that mixes the nerve shredding genius of Hitchcock with Polanski’s visual intensity.

The Seasoning House is a grim and soulless place where young girls are bought and sold for men’s pleasure.  Here we meet Angel (Rosie Day), a young, orphaned girl enslaved by Viktor (Kevin Howarth).  Unbeknownst to her master, she moves between the walls and crawlspaces of the house – silently observing, learning and planning for her escape. 

When her closest confident is savagely killed, Angel can no longer contain her rage and sets out through both ingenuity and brutality to seek justice.

Our Friends at Blogomatic3000 watched the film at Frighfest for us, read their review here .

The Seasoning House doesn't have an offcial release date set yet but do expect the film to arrive early 2013. The film stars Rosie Day, Sean Pertwee, Kevin Howarth, Anna Walton, Jemma Powell,Alec Utgoff.

A big thanks to Sterling Pictures for sending us this trailer!

Uwe Boll's Zombie Massacre Trailer

No comments: Links to this post

He's the filmmaker many love to hate and for numerous reasons you can see why they hate him but whatever you think he has a cult following and as long that fanbase is around Uwe Boll will keep making those films.  His latest film though this time only as producer Zombie Massacre a full trailer has landed online with Eaters duo Marco Ristori and Luca Boni directing. Based on a 1998 video game which has similarities to Doom but with the undead roaming the lands which look like the same location as Eaters but this Italian duo are experts at low budget flicks so absorb your resources!

It's bog standard stuff however with so many zombie films on the market now we can easily say Zombie Massacre looks like one of the better ones which has Uwe Boll even starring in it as the President of United States!!! No word on the UK&Irish release date just yet but expect it either before the end of this year early next year. Zombie Massacre also stars Tara Cardinal, Mike Mitchell, Jon Campling, Christian Boeving, Gerry Shanahan, Daniel Vivian and Carl Wharton.

A bacteriological weapon developed by the US Government to create a super soldier - spreads an epidemic in a quiet little town in the middle of Eastern Europe. All citizens have been turned into infected zombies. The plan is to bring an atomic bomb into the city's nuclear plant to pretend a terrible accident occurred. No one has to know the truth. A team of mercenaries is hired to complete the mission. The battle is on. Hordes of monsters against the team.

Jessica Chastain Goes Black For Trailer For Guillermo Del Toro’s Mama

No comments: Links to this post
This month Jennifer Lawrence will make her Horror début in House At The End Of The Street (21st September) In 2013 Hollywood's other it girl Jessica Chastain dawns a new look to appear in her own mandatory horror flick debut in Mama and check out the new trailer!

"What Jessica Chastain has Gone Black?!!" I'm sure that raised a few eyebrows, I'm afraid it's not a headline about the in demand actress but the new look (or wig) she has for this film, a film which is been presented by Guillermo Del Toro. Mama sees the Spanish scare master as executive producer as well as mentor for first time director Andres Muschietti whom the film is on his short film from a few years ago. Mama tells the tale of Lucas (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and Annabel (Chastain) his girlfriend who end becoming surrogate parents To Lucas' nieces who were left alone in the forest after the death of their parents though they might have not been alone after all!

 Mama we first heard about a few years back thanks to cinehouse and we were impressed then as we are now for this film version. When Del Toro offers new film makers his mentor skills he does seem to get the best out of those under his wings(most of the time), Mama looks a creepy film which has Del Toro's trademark style. This type of film may not been anything original but when it's well made film fans and horror-philes will appreciate what their watching here's hoping this one is alot better than his last produced film Don't be Afraid of the Dark, and on first evidence this one looks an vast improvement.

 Mama doesn't have an official UK release date but American horror fans can catch this one on 18th January 2013.
Guillermo del Toro presents Mama, a supernatural thriller that tells the haunting tale of two little girls who disappeared into the woods the day that their parents were killed. When they are rescued years later and begin a new life, they find that someone or something still wants to come tuck them in at night. Five years ago, sisters Victoria and Lilly vanished from their suburban neighborhood without a trace. Since then, their Uncle Lucas (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and his girlfriend, Annabel (Jessica Chastain), have been madly searching for them. But when, incredibly, the kids are found alive in a decrepit cabin, the couple wonders if the girls are the only guests they have welcomed into their home. As Annabel tries to introduce the children to a normal life, she grows convinced of an evil presence in their house. Are the sisters experiencing traumatic stress, or is a ghost coming to visit them? How did the broken girls survive those years all alone? As she answers these disturbing questions, the new mother will find that the whispers she hears at bedtime are coming from the lips of a deadly presence.

Leatherface is back! Watch First Trailer For Texas Chainsaw 3D

No comments: Links to this post

Legends never dies, but sometimes you wish they would but seven films been and gone an horror legend is about to return for an 8th time the sulking son from hell Leatherface  has riffled up the chainsaw for Texas Chainsaw 3D and the official first trailer has arrived!

Just when you thought it was safe to say The infamous Sawyer family all perished in vigilante killings by locals away back in 1974 after the original incident 38 years on the mask and chainsaw are ready for terrorize a new generation. A young woman called Heather discovers she has inherited land thanks to an unheard relative together with her friends the embark on the road trip to visit the land to find a new house has been built.The first steps into the house just might be their last as an unwelcome guest awaits in the basement.

In the era of remake, reboots, prequels are all the range Texas Chainsaw 3D isn’t a remake of  the original nor the 186 follow up this one does seem to take a slight direction away. This feels more a straight up slasher though the intensity, scares and to some extent some of the familiar traits from the franchise are there.

How good will this be? This will be a film only true hardcore fans of franchise and Horrorphiles can truly answer. When you bring 3D gimmickry into the equation you ask yourself did they remake or reboot this to benefit the franchise or just the sole purpose to $$$ nothing more? I am a horror fan I do love the Texas Chainsaw  but I smell a dead rat here though if this film does help introduce Horror to a new generation of fans then Texas Chainsaw 3D will bring me some satisfaction.
Lionsgate’s TEXAS CHAINSAW 3D continues the legendary story of the homicidal Sawyer family, picking up where Tobe Hooper’s 1974 horror classic left off in Newt, Texas, where for decades people went missing without a trace.  The townspeople long suspected the Sawyer family, owners of a local barbeque pit, were somehow responsible.  Their suspicions were finally confirmed one hot summer day when a young woman escaped the Sawyer house following the brutal murders of her four friends.  Word around the small town quickly spread, and a vigilante mob of enraged locals surrounded the Sawyer stronghold, burning it to the ground and killing every last member of the family – or so they thought.
Decades later and hundreds of miles away from the original massacre, a young woman named Heather learns that she has inherited a Texas estate from a grandmother she never knew she had.  After embarking on a road trip with friends to uncover her roots, she finds she is the sole owner of a lavish, isolated Victorian mansion. But her newfound wealth comes at a price as she stumbles upon a horror that awaits her in the mansion’s dank cellars.
Texas Chainsaw 3D will be splattering its way into UK& Irish cinemas on 4th January 2013. The film stars Alexandra Daddario, Scott Eastwood, Bill Moseley and Dan Yeager.

Frightfest 2012:The Inside which has its World Premiere at FRIGHTFEST

No comments: Links to this post

You’ve seen him as Sir Gwaine in the BBC’s TV series Merlin, now Eoin Macken steps behind the camera to direct The Inside, featuring Czech starlet Tereza Srbova (Sirens, Eastern Promises) alongside the cream of Irish acting talent that includes Emmett J. Scanlan (fan favourite Brendan Brady in Hollyoaks, Charlie Casanova), Sean Stewart (Occi, Coward), Natalia Kostrzewa (The Clinic) & Brian Fortune (Game of Thrones).  The WORLD PREMIERE takes place at the 13th Frightfest, Empire Cinema, Leicester Square on the Discovery Screen, Sunday 26th August 12.45PM (Also screening on Monday 27th 6.30PM).

Eoin Macken, Emmett J. Scanlan, Tereza Srbova & Brian Fortune will all be in attendance.

While in a pawnshop a young man comes into possession of a second hand video camera; discovering a tape still inside he plays back the footage and witnesses a horrific series of events involving a group of teens in an undisclosed location. Using the footage as a guide he retraces the steps to where the events seemingly occurred. Deciding to investigate he discovers to his horror not only the truth of the events on the tape but comes face to face with a supernatural terror from which he may not escape....

The Inside is a hard, violent, visceral psychological horror, which gets into your belly, and leaves an unnerving disturbed feeling after watching it.  Shot mostly in alarming 1st person perspective this evocatively realistic story of five girls breaking into an abandoned warehouse for excitement -  then finding themselves subject to a terrifying human attack before succumbing to a supernatural terror -  will leave you shaking with fear!  The film shows the worst side of humanity and contrasts it with the horror of the supernatural, which has no compunction between good and evil.  But what is worse - the fear of the unknown, or the known fear of man?  Shot and directed by Eoin C Macken, with additional cinematography by David Laird, and also featuring Eoin Macken, with sound by Greg French of Irish band The Brilliant Things and a chilling score from Kevin Whyms of Whymsonics, The Inside will re-invigorate the Irish horror genre.
