#SDCC16: We Go Goggles-On with Teen Wolf’s Interactive VR Experience

Published

on

In the lead up to this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, one hands-on (or in this case, goggles-on) display we knew we wanted to make time for was “Teen Wolf’s” all-new interactive VR experience on the floor of the Convention Center. So on Preview Night (July 20th), MTV’s Booth #3729 was one of our first stops to check out this “ultimate fan experience.”

Was it worth it?  Absolutely!  The interactivity is like nothing we’ve seen before; it uses gaze- and motion-activated technology, making it a lot less passive than most VR demonstrations, so that the outcome depends on your actions. We ventured into the tunnels below Beacon Hills as well as the library and spent some time with Lydia, Scott, Malia, Liam, and Mason.  Plus we got a taste of the new Season 6 villains: the Ghost Riders, aka the “Wild Hunt,” who can take your memories and leave you wondering what’s real and what’s not.  Plus, Lydia lets out a Banshee scream that… well, we’ll just let you guys find out for yourselves.

It was a fun, spooky few minutes immersed in the world of “Teen Wolf” that gave us a nice respite from the hubbub of the SDCC.  If you have a chance, definitely swing by the booth and give it a whirl!

Below are a few photos from our time there.  Big thanks to Jason Koffeman of Moth + Flame, who guided us through the experience.

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.
