First Look at the Trailer, Stills and Poster for Nicolas Simonin’s Short Film Seizures



Post Thumb:


Recently we caught up with French writer and director Nicolas Simonin (the man behind the much buzzed-about short film Derailed), who provided us word and a trailer for his next horror short, Seizures.

Written, directed and produced by Simonin, Seizures stars Jonno Roberts (“C.S.I.”, “Person of Interest”, “Lie to Me”), Veronica Wylie and Scott Loska and centers around (according to the official synopsis) the character of “Vincent, a photojournalist suffering from a brain injury, [who] tries to reconnect with his past by developing old film strips of pictures he doesn’t even remember. Everything leads him to a strange gas station, where the man will face his worst nightmare.”

“It’s a film in the vein of Jacob’s Ladder, Angel Heart and Memento,” Simonin said of his sixteen-minute Seizures, which is slated to make its North American festival debut this fall. “It’s a psychological thriller with some disturbing, shocking images,” he continued. “If Derailed was like a dreamy nightmare, Seizures will offer more of a physical experience of nightmare and confusion.”

Emboldened by the positive festival reactions Derailed garnered (the flick screened at Screamfest 2011, Cannes 2011 and A Night of Horror in Sydney, Australia, among others, as well as being among Eli Roth’s Top10 finalist choice at Universal Studios’ Eyegore Awards 2011), the inspired filmmaker shot Seizures in San Diego over the course of four days last year on the Canon 5D and Canon 7D. Financed primarily via a successful crowd-sourcing campaign, the film employed the talents of a multi-national cast and crew, including Americans Olivia Kuan and Afton Adams (director of photography and makeup supervisor, respectfully), Argentinian sound designer Yamil Burguener, UK composer Zoe Blade, French editor Sylviane Tosi, and more.

Of his inspiration for Seizures, “After exploring the darkness of a city like Paris in Derailed,” said Simonin, who is now a proud Los Angeleno, “I wanted to do a film that would show the experience inside the head of the lead, something about the perception of your surroundings. Everything started with some research I did about brain seizures, and I began to wonder what would be the life of someone suffering from them, who is able to feel the present, the past, and the future.”

Hunt a Serial Killer Through Chicago In My Eyes On You



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.

Netflix Renews The Punisher Solo Series for Season Two!



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!

“The Punisher” is executive produced by showrunner Steve Lightfoot, Jim Chory, and Jeph Loeb. The series is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios for Netflix.

The cast features Jon Bernthal, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Deborah Ann Woll, Ben Barnes, Amber Rose Revah, Michael Nathanson, Jaime Ray Newman, Jason R Moore, and Paul Schulze.

After exacting revenge on those responsible for the death of his wife and children, Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) uncovers a conspiracy that runs far deeper than New York’s criminal underworld. Now known throughout the city as The Punisher, he must discover the truth about injustices that affect more than his family alone.
