New Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead Lands Distribution at SundanceHot on the heels of the release of the latest trailer for Tommy Wirkola’s long awaited sequel to Dead Snow, Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead, news has come that Well Go USA will be bringing the film to the masses!

From the Press Release
In a competitive situation at Sundance, distributor Well Go USA Entertainment has picked up U.S. rights to the Park City at Midnight crowd favorite DEAD SNOW: RED VS. DEAD, the sequel to the successful cult hit DEAD SNOW, which debuted at Sundance in 2009.

The Norwegian and English-language film was written and directed by Tommy Wirkola and stars Martin Starr, Vegar Hoel, Ingrid Haas, Stig Frode Henriksen, Jocelyn DeBoer and Ørjan Gamst. Kjetil Omberg and Terje Stroemstad of Tappeluft Pictures produced the film. XYZ Films’ Nick Spicer and Todd Brown executive produced, along with Wayne Godfrey from The Fyzz, which also provided a portion of the financing for the film.

Filmed in all-English simultaneously to the half-Norwegian, half-English version that was shown at Sundance, Well Go USA Entertainment will release the all-English version. The company plans to announce a domestic release date shortly.

If the worst day of your life consisted of accidentally killing your girlfriend with an axe, chain-sawing your own arm off, and watching in horror as your closest friends were devoured by a zombified Nazi battalion, you’d have to assume that things couldn’t get much worse. In Martin’s case, that was only the beginning. Picking up immediately where the original left off, DEAD SNOW: RED VS. DEAD wastes no time getting right to the gore-filled action, leaving a bloody trail of intestines in its wake.

The deal, which marks one of the largest U.S. sales ever for a Norwegian film, was brokered by Well Go USA Entertainment President Doris Pfardrescher with CAA, XYZ Films’ Nate Bolotin, and Elle Driver on behalf of the filmmakers. Elle Driver also represents the film’s international distribution rights.

“DEAD SNOW: RED VS DEAD is non-stop fun from beginning to end, and we’re thrilled to be able to bring it to DEAD SNOW fans in the U.S. It’s everything the fans loved from the first movie, except bigger, better and bloodier… Who doesn’t love a good zombie movie, especially when Nazi zombies are involved!” said Pfardrescher.

“We had so much fun working with Kjetil, Terje and Tommy on this film and couldn’t be happier to land it with Well Go. They know the audience well, and we’re anticipating great success in the U.S. market,” said Spicer.

XYZ executive produced and handled international sales on the hit action film THE RAID: REDEMPTION, which was released by Sony Pictures Classics. They are also handling international sales on Sundance competition film LIFE AFTER BETH, starring Aubrey Plaza, Dane DeHaan, Anna Kendrick, John C. Reilly, Molly Shannon, Matthew Gray Gubler, Cheryl Hines, and Paul Reiser.

XYZ Films produced and is handling world sales on THE RAID 2, from writer/director Gareth Huw Evans as well as KILLERS, which is co-directed by Timo Tjahjanto and Kimo Stamboel (The Mo Brothers). Both films are world premiering at Sundance 2014.

Synopsis:
Dead Snow: Red vs. Dead follows the sole survivor of a Nazi zombie attack who battles an even larger army of zombies with the help of The Zombie Squad, a professional gang of zombie killers from the U.S.

Night of the Living Dead 4K and The Silence of the Lambs Come to the Criterion Collection

Published

on

It’s been a long time coming for these two classics, especially Night of the Living Dead after the ridiculously bad transfer put out by Mill Creek Entertainment, whose transfer was supposedly remastered from a new 2K scan. I swear I thought it was some kind of a joke when I first put it on to watch. In any event…

IndieWire is reporting that horror classics Night of the Living Dead and The Silence of the Lambs will be added to the 2018 Criterion Collection, a hallmark label for home video cinephiles.

According to the site, Criterion will release a new 4K digital restoration of The Silence of the Lambs, which has been approved by the movie’s cinematographer Tak Fujimoto. Included on the DVD and Blu-ray sets are 35 minutes of deleted scenes and audio commentary from 1994 featuring the late Jonathan Demme (director), stars Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins, screenwriter Ted Tally, and former FBI agent John Douglas.

Night of the Living Dead will also be released in 4K with never-before-seen 16mm dailies included as a bonus feature(!).

These will be added in February of 2018 so make sure you save up some cash after the holidays!

DIS Review – Not for the Faint of Heart!

Published

on

Starring Bill Oberst, Jr., Lori Jo Hendrix, Peter Gonzales Falcon

Directed by Adrian Corona


I’ve made this claim many a time on this website before, and in the company of film friends as well: Bill Oberst Jr. is one of those actors that can literally be thrust into ANY role, and deliver a performance with so much harnessed electricity that you couldn’t believe that it was possible. I was the lucky recipient chosen to get a look at his latest project, titled DIS, and I think that I can honestly say – this is the stuff that nightmares are constructed of.

Directed by Adrian Corona, this 60-minute dive into the black depths of hell, and in actuality DIS is located between circles # 6 and 9 in Dante’s Divine Comedy, and trust me when I tell you – there’s not a shred of comedic relief in this demented presentation. Oberst Jr plays an ex-soldier named Ariel, and his seemingly harmless jaunt through the woods will become anything but that, and judging from the film’s opening scenes, you are meant to feel as uncomfortable about this watch as any you might have checked out in recent memory.

Perversion is the norm here, and lord help you if you’re caught where you shouldn’t be…my skin’s crawling just thinking about what I saw. Ariel’s travels are basically dialogue-free, but it only adds to the infinite levels of creepiness – you can tell he’s being stalked, and the distance between he and the horrors that await are closing in rather quickly.

Visually by itself, this hour-long chiller can sell tickets without any assistance – hollowed-out buildings and long sweeping shots of a silent forest give the movie that look of complete desolation. Sliced up into three acts, the film wastes no time in setting up the story of a killer needing fresh blood to appease his Mandrake garden – seriously guys, I can’t type as much flashy stuff as there needs to be in order to describe this innately disturbing production.

If you’re one of those types who tends to shy away from the graphic side of things, then I’d HIGHLY advise you to keep your TV tuned to the Hallmark Channel for some holiday entertainment, because this one registers high on the “I can’t believe someone thought of this” meter. So the quick recap is this: Oberst Jr in a standout performance, visual excellence, and an unshakable sense of debasement on a cellular level – keep the kiddies out of the living room with this one. Corona should be lauded (or locked up – just kidding) for his work on this one – HIGHLY recommended, and one that I’ll throw down as a top 5 for me in 2017.

Summary

Director Corona should be lauded (or locked up – just kidding) for his work on this one – HIGHLY recommended!
