The Killer Inside Me Causes a Ruckus in Berlin

Published

on

There’s a sometimes thin line between hyperbole and fact. During the European Film Market event in Berlin, Michael Winterbottom’s The Killer Inside Me was apparently so violent that dozens of people walked out of the press screening in disgust. Okay. Sign us up!

Winterbottom recently spoke out on the matter as per The Hollywood Reporter:

“A lot of noir books and films show violence as something which is entertaining,” Winterbottom told reporters at a press conference dominated by questions about the on-screen violence.

“What I liked about Jim Thompson’s books is that, though very much in the pulp fiction genre, he doesn’t use the violence as entertainment — there is something shocking about the violence. For me that was the point of the violence in the film in a way — it is something very repulsive. In terms of how we depicted it, we were just trying to make it as close to the book as possible. The book is very shocking.”

Winterbottom was also asked whether he thought the film could be criticized for being misogynist, with the most disturbing attacks reserved for the female leads.

“Lou Ford is a very weak person who’s messed up by his childhood, and he has all sorts of insecurities, and in the end he wants to destroy himself,” Winterbottom replied. “I think anyone watching this film saying this in some way supports or encourages violence is just watching the film in a very perverse way.”

The film stars Casey Affleck, Jessica Alba, Elias Koteas, Kate Hudson, Bill Pullman, Ned Beatty, and Simon Baker.

The book of the same name on which the film is based was published in 1952 and concerns a deputy sheriff in a West Texas town whose kind Everyman demeanor masks his true dark self. He is slowly revealed as a psychotic killer.

Hunt a Serial Killer Through Chicago In My Eyes On You

Published

on

Developer Storymind Entertainment have released the first gameplay trailer for My Eyes On You, and it looks like we’re in for something completely truly unique, in terms of both visuals and narrative.

My Eyes On You takes place in a near future version of Chicago, with FBI agent Jordan Adalien hunting an elusive serial killer known only as the Man in the Red Mask. The decisions you make will also dictate whether the game’s plot stays closer to reality or heads in a supernatural direction, so you’d better be careful what you wish for. Whilst searching for clues will be one of your main areas of focus, combat will also play an important role, too.

The trailer for My Eyes On You certainly gives off a strong Blade Runner 2049 vibe, so if that’s your thing, you’re probably in for a great time. It will be available on PC and consoles, although a release date has not yet been confirmed.

Published

on

I’m going to let you guys into a bit of my life here and let you know that I am basically in a constant state of kicking myself for not having found the time to watch a single episode of Netflix’s “The Punisher” solo series.

I love the f*cking Punisher and I think Jon Bernthal’s portrayal of Frank Castle is quite possibly the best version (love ya, Tom Jane) of the character we have ever seen on screen.

Big or small.

It’s with this in mind that we wanted to share the awesome news the Netflix has officially given “The Punisher” the greenlight for season 2!

Yes, Frank Castle will be back to shoot more people in the back of the face sooner than later. The announcement was made recently on Facebook and you can check out the post below.

After that make sure to hit us up and let us know what you thought of the first season of Netflix’s “The Punisher” solo series in the comments below or on social media!
