Director’s Cut in the Dark

Published

on

You mean Boll didn't make it right the first time?!Uwe Boll’s Postal (review) just garned a perfect 5-knife review from Dread Central’s very own Nomad. Does this mean that Dr. Boll’s Ed Wood-ian career is about to take a turn for the better? Perhaps. But Boll would still like to remind you of the good ol’ days when he was revered as the modern master of bad cinema. How else can one explain Lionsgate releasing a director’s cut of Alone in the Dark (review)?

Yes, a director’s cut of Alone in the Dark … I’m not joking. DavisDVD is reporting it will hit shelves on September 25th. Is there really a market out there clamoring for such a DVD? I can’t imagine even the most hardcore Christian Slater and Stephen Dorff fans picking this one up.

So what does an Alone in the Dark: Unrated Director’s Cut entail? How does a whopping three whole additional minutes of new footage sound? Somehow I just don’t believe these three extra minutes worked back into the film are going to help the movie suddenly make any lick of sense. Personally, I’m hoping it’s three extra minutes of crawling text at the beginning of the film.

In addition, the disc will also feature an all-new audio commentary by Uwe Boll. I can’t imagine what he could say in this commentary that he didn’t say in the previous one, except maybe to get drunk and give his own movie the MST3K treatment or perform 90-minutes worth of “Tara Reid is so drunk and stupid” jokes.

There’ll also be deleted scenes and music videos. The movie will be an anamorphic widescreen transfer presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 audio tracks.

Oh, and much like the Bloodrayne DVD (review), you’ll also get an Alone in the Dark video game thrown in for extra incentive. I suppose that might make it worth shelling out $19.98 for a special edition DVD to a movie widely acclaimed as one of the worst in recent memory. Or not.

And in case you haven’t heard, Alone in the Dark 2 is in the works. Read it and weep.

Entertaining Gorefest DOWNRANGE Gets Brutal New Trailer

Published

on

This Thursday Ryuhei Kitamura’s new horror-thriller Downrange hits Sudder exclusively and today we have the film’s brutal new trailer and poster.

I’m counting down the days until I can check the film out myself, especially after our own Jonathan Barkan called the film an Entertaining Gorefest in his TIFF review earlier this year.

You can check out the new poster to the right and the trailer below and then make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

The film is directed Ryuhei Kitamura (The Midnight Meat Train) from a screenplay written by Joey O’Bryan, with a story by O’Bryan and Kitamura. It stars newcomer Kelly Connaire, Stephanie Pearson, Rod Hernandez-Farella, Anthony Kirlew, Alexa Yeames, and Jason Tobias and is produced by Kitamura and Ko Mori, with Taro Maki executive producing.

It lands exclusively on Shudder April 26th. See it theatrically in NYC on April 27 and 28,
with director Ryuhei Kitamura in attendance!

Synopsis:

Six college students are carpooling cross-country when one of their tires blows out on a desolate stretch of country road. Getting out to fix the flat, they quickly discover that this was no accident. The tire was shot out. With their vehicle incapacitated, the group is pinned down and mercilessly attacked by an unseen assailant as they desperately attempt to find a way to escape.

VENOM Trailer is Pure Action Horror

Published

on

Surprise news for those of you still up late as Sony has dropped the first trailer for Venom, their standalone film based on the character of the same name. For those of you who were wondering how this film might stand up in today’s age of “some are good and some are bad” comic book-to-film adaptations, I’m going to lean towards the former. While I’ll try to remain skeptical, something about the way this movie is looking is grabbing my attention and has me quite excited. Apart from the requisite action that all superhero movies have these days, there’s a wonderful amount of horror throughout the trailer.

Check it out for yourself and let us know what you think in the comments!

One of Marvel’s most enigmatic, complex and badass characters comes to the big screen, starring Academy Award® nominated actor Tom Hardy as the lethal protector Venom.

Directed by Ruben Fleischer, Venom stars Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, Scott Haze, and Reid Scott. It infects theaters on October 5, 2018.
