Behold the TV Face

Promo shot of TV Face director Dean Bull from the press releaseWhat in the hell is TV Face? What kind of title is that, anyway? It really evokes nothing as to what it would be about, unless of course it’s about a guy who has a TV for a face…

Luckily that is not the case, however. What TV Face is, is an interesting experiment in film distribution; a feature film broken up into 39 quick 3-minute snippets that will be downloadable online, with the intention of recapturing the feel of old-school radio dramas with a new technological spin. TV Face is an interesting and creative idea; a pair of filmmaker’s answer to the bullshit that is Hollywood. And we always love supporting that!

So now you know how it will be presented to you, but what is it about? TV Face is about a young man named Mitch, whose only real obsession in life is videotapes. Not DVDs, not laserdiscs, but VHS videotapes, specifically those of the infamous “video nasties”. There is one tape he’s searched for for as long as he can remember and when he finally finds it, he soon discovers there are forces beyond his imagination at work to make sure no one sees this tape … ever. Producer David Britz described it in their press release as “Lost” meets The Evil Dead, if that helps at all.

You can learn more about TV Face by checking out both its official site and MySpace page. We’ll be keeping an eye on this one since it really is a bold and interesting way to release a feature-length film, and I for one want to see how it turns out!

Giallo Makes A Comeback With Crystal Eyes

Published

on

The giallo genre has somewhat fallen off the radar in recent years, but that’s all about to change with the new Argentinian film Crystal Eyes (original title: Mirada de Cristal). Set in 1985, the film’s about a series of murders taking place in the glamorous and colorful fashion world, so it sounds like a true giallo throwback.

Crystal Eyes was directed by Ezequiel Endelman and Leandro Montejano, and stars Silvia Montanari, Anahí Politi, Erika Boveri, and Claudio Armesto. It screened at both the Mar del Plata International Film Festival and the Buenos Aires Rojo Sangre Film Festival, and received a great audience reception at both. We were sent the trailer for the film along with the poster and a bunch of lobby cards, which we proudly present below.

Investigate The Paranormal In The X-Files: Deep State Mobile Game

Published

on

“The X-Files” franchise will turn 25 next year, and what better way to celebrate than with the launch of a new video game? That’s right, the mobile game The X-Files: Deep State will be released in February 2018, and, in the style of the show, will feature a story about aliens and government conspiracies. The events of the game will take place in the year 2010, between seasons nine and ten of the show.

The X-Files: Deep State is being developed by Creative Mobile Games and will be published by FoxNext, and as with the majority of mobile games these days, will be free to play with in-game purchases.

Meanwhile, season 11 of “The X-Files” TV series will premiere on January 3, 2018. Which may be its last hurrah, because I dread to think what Disney will do with the franchise if they ultimately do end up purchasing 20th Century Fox.
