Synopsis and Stills from Bulletface

Published

on

Over the holidays we heard from director Albert Pyun, who informed us that instead of his next release being Tales of an Ancient Empire, his long gestating follow-up to The Sword and the Sorcerer, it will be the gory and disturbing Bulletface written by Randall Fontana.

Pyun and Fontana first worked together on Hong Kong 97 back in 1994. Here’s how Albert describes Bulletface, which he also promises is more sexually explicit than his other films and not for the faint of heart: [It] is a departure for me because of how gritty and hardboiled it is. The story is set along the Mexico/California Border, principally in Imperial Beach, CA. It concerns a female DEA agent, Dara Maren, who, in protecting her petty criminal younger brother, gets herself arrested and imprisoned in a nightmarish penal colony outside Tijuana. You can guess how bad it gets in there — prison officials even harvest organs from the inmates. While she’s in prison, Dara’s brother is murdered by a drug lord who’s creating a new DNA-altering drug made from human spinal fluid tapped from the living.

Hundreds of dead bodies are turning up along the Border, and the drug addicts become something not quite human. The drug is so addicting that even law enforcement and government officials are on the stuff. A rogue FBI agent bribes the prison officials to let Dara out to avenge her brother’s murder as well as bring down the drug lord in ways the Feds can’t. When Dara comes out of prison, she is not the same person who went in.

The catch? She only gets a 60-hour get-out-of-jail card and must return to the prison to serve out her 20-year sentence, or the FBI agent must take her place.

Victoria Maurette, who was the star of Pyun’s Left for Dead (review here) plays Dara. Steven Bauer co-stars with Scott Paulin, Morgan Weisser, Jenny Dare Paulin, and Eddie Velez.

Check out the stills Pyun provided below, and keep it here for more on Bulletface soon.

Thelma Is Fantastic and Now You Can Watch the Opening Scene

Published

on

One of this year’s most beautiful and subdued horror films is Joachim Trier’s Thelma (review), which opens in Los Angeles tonight. To give you a bit of what the film is like, The Orchard have released the opening scene, which shows a man and his daughter hunting in the bleak Norwegian winter. When they come across a young deer, the true intentions of this trip become apparent…

Having seen Thelma, I can tell you that it’s truly something special. It’s a slow burn, to be certain, but it plays out gorgeously, resulting in a film that has yet to leave my mind.

Locations and tickets for Thelma can be found here.

Synopsis:
Thelma, a shy young student, has just left her religious family in a small town on the west coast of Norway to study at a university in Oslo. While at the library one day, she experiences a violent, unexpected seizure. Soon after, she finds herself intensely drawn toward Anja, a beautiful young student who reciprocates Thelma’s powerful attraction. As the semester continues, Thelma becomes increasingly overwhelmed by her intense feelings for Anja – feelings she doesn’t dare acknowledge, even to herself – while at the same time experiencing even more extreme seizures. As it becomes clearer that the seizures are a symptom of inexplicable, often dangerous, supernatural abilities, Thelma is confronted with tragic secrets of her past, and the terrifying implications of her powers.
