Colin Campbell’s New Short Emits The Sound of Fear

Published

on

Colin Campbell is a name you should be familiar with as we brought his awesome short Girl at the Door to your attention a few years ago. Now we’re back with The Sound of Fear, an eight-minute sequence from a feature that he’s in the process of getting financed.

You can check out what Campbell has in store for us in his new action/suspense/horror film right here!

Written and directed by Colin Campbell, The Sound of Fear stars Sandra Mae Frank, Chiara Aurelia, Kimberly Atkinson, Derek Chariton, Joshua Dov, Joe Fria, and Rebecca Larsen. It’s produced by Elyse Katz and Campbell with cinematography by Andrew Aiello and music by Robert Gates.

In The Sound of Fear, a young deaf woman, Ivy, inadvertently witnesses a group of meth addicts kill a sheriff in a remote resort town. On the run, Ivy races through the empty streets looking for help. She finds a vacationing family and tries to get them to call the police, but they can’t understand her. The addicts burst in and kill the mom and dad. Ivy and the couple’s 13-year-old daughter, Molly, flee.

Ivy and Molly struggle to communicate and to stay one step ahead of the killers who are relentlessly hunting them down. At certain key moments, the film takes us into Ivy’s world, stripping away the sounds and plunging the audience into a terrifying silence. Ivy can’t hear them coming for her, but she’s resourceful and smart. She has to learn to use sounds against the killers if she wants to keep Molly and herself alive.

Frank, the critically acclaimed star of the Tony-nominated Broadway musical Spring Awakening, plays Ivy. Campbell tells us, “As a deaf actress, Sandra brings an authenticity to the role. She seizes the opportunity with a fierce passion and delivers a powerful performance; the audience can’t help but root for her. She is a powerhouse of an actress, a genuine Broadway star, but unknown in Hollywood because of a lack of opportunity for deaf actors.”

Along with the short, we’ve included an interview Campbell and Frank did with Tru Biz on the Sign Language Channel – dig in!

Who out there loves Screen Junkies Honest Trailers?

Well, then today is your lucky day as the YouTube channel has just released their Honest Trailer for director Andres Muschietti’s take on Stephen King’s IT.

I don’t tend to watch these Honest Trailers videos but I have to admit this one was pretty fun. I’m not for mercilessly poking fun at movies that don’t deserve it, but when someone can point out issues I never realized (that are kinda valid) then I’m all in.

You can check out the Honest Trailer for Stephen King’s IT below and then let us know what you think!

Stephen King’s IT is now available on Blu-ray.

BUY IT NOW!

Synopsis:

Seven young outcasts in Derry, Maine, are about to face their worst nightmare — an ancient, shape-shifting evil that emerges from the sewer every 27 years to prey on the town’s children. Banding together over the course of one horrifying summer, the friends must overcome their own personal fears to battle the murderous, bloodthirsty clown known as Pennywise.

Director Doug Liman Says Edge of Tomorrow 2 Could Be His Next Film

Published

on

I don’t know if you ever bothered to see the Tom Cruise/Emily Blunt sci-fi action flick Edge of Tomorrow, but if you missed out, you should make time for the stellar flick.

I kept putting the film off myself, but then when I finally peeped the Groundhog Day-style shenanigans contained within, I was a fan signed, sealed, and delivered D.O.A.

It is with this in mind I’m excited to share the news that Edge of Tomorrow 2 just might be director Doug Liman’s next film! Recently the director spoke with Collider and dropped some new info on the possible sequel.

“We’re just working on the script…,” Liman said. “[We’re no longer working on scheduling issues]; now it’s down to we have a window where we could go do it, and we’re frantically working on the script. It’s one of those movies that we’ll only go make if we love the script. It’s not one of those things where the studio is pushing us to make it and they don’t really care if it’s good or not. If the movie happens, it will be because Emily Blunt, Tom Cruise, and myself are passionate about making it, which is a great place to be. She doesn’t need this movie, he doesn’t need this movie, and I don’t need it. We’re gonna make it if we really believe in it. We have [a] story that the three of us love, so we’re working hard on the script.”

So when he was asked if the film could be his next flick, he said: “It could be. It has the possibility of being my next film.”

Good enough for me!

You can check out the trailer for the original film out again below; and for your own good, if you’ve been passing on the film for the last few years, give it a shot tonight. You will not be disappointed.

Synopsis:
When Earth falls under attack from invincible aliens, no military unit in the world is able to beat them. Maj. William Cage (Tom Cruise), an officer who has never seen combat, is assigned to a suicide mission. Killed within moments, Cage finds himself thrown into a time loop, in which he relives the same brutal fight — and his death — over and over again. However, Cage’s fighting skills improve with each encore, bringing him and a comrade (Emily Blunt) ever closer to defeating the aliens.
