Boll Will Seed You Soon

Published

on

No, that's not a real pic of Boll holding a leapord... but damn is it funnyNow that Uwe Boll has successfully proven that a former semi-pro boxer can easily pummel internet movie critics with no pugilistic training, the good doctor can get back to focusing on what he does best: making movies (quality notwithstanding). With In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale awaiting a release, his movie version of the video game Postal still filming, and rumors circulating that he’s considering sequels to Alone in the Dark and Bloodrayne (read about those here), Boll has another film on the horizon, one that is not based on a video game. Hard to believe, huh?

Seed, which he already knocked out this past July-August, is an original horror movie written by the man himself. Here’s a synopsis:

“Max Seed, an insane mass murderer, is scheduled for execution at the hands of Warden Wright. Before the executioner throws the switch, Wright steps in front of Seed, “Do you have any last words?” Seed, “I’ll see you again.” After three attempts to electrocute him, boiling blood steeps from Seed’s eyes, but he’s still alive. The executioner, Wright and the doctor collectively agree that the breathing Seed be pronounced dead. He is bound and buried alive. After biting and clawing his way to the surface, Seed, the blood soaked, enraged madman, is now bent on vengeance. The reign of violence that follows will redefine the boundaries of extreme gore, physical, & mental torture explored through cinema.”

As you can tell from that last sentence, Boll is vowing that the $8 million gorefest will set new standards for cinematic carnage. Haven’t the makers of See No Evil and Chaos both already vowed the same exact raising of the bar already this year?

First look at Boll's Seed (ew)!According to the all-purpose Uwe Boll informational website Bollbashers.com, Boll accidentally deleted the Seed script during pre-production. Instead of rushing a rewrite, Boll decided to shoot Seed from memory. If true, then it’s just another amazing footnote in the legend-in-the-making that is Uwe Boll.

One of the first photos to pop up online from Seed shows us Boll regular Will Sanderson as the overalls-luvin’, oddly masked title killer standing next to co-star Michael Pare, who from the looks of this photo appears to be playing the world’s most intense Monday Night Football commentator. Actually, Pare plays a police detective.

The official website for Seed is now online, although there isn’t much more than a title page right now and the film’s current tagline “I’ll see you again.” It might end up being “I’ll see you real soon” since the film is currently going through postproduction overdrive due to Boll wanting to have the film ready for unveiling at the American Film Market just four short weeks from now. Good luck on that one, guys.

Better believe we’ll be keeping you covered on this one. Who knows; maybe this will be the one where Uwe Boll redeems himself. Stranger things have happened. Personally, I’m rooting for the guy because it’ll make for one of the greatest come from behind victories in history.

Did You Catch Chucky and King Kong’s Cameo in the Trailer For Steven Spielberg’s New Movie?

Published

on

You may remember a few months back there was a kick-ass trailer for Steven Spielberg’s new action-adventure flick Ready Player One that sported a quick glimpse of not only Freddy Krueger, but Stephen King’s Christine as well.

If those slick horror nods weren’t enough for you, today we have the new trailer for the film and guess who shows up? Yep, you guess it (from the headline) but Mr. Charles Lee Ray lends a helping knife to a battle, and the king of the jungle, Kong himself!

Very cool.

The cameos in the trailer is one of those “blink-and-you’ll-miss-it” things, but let’s hope he has a bit more screentime in the actual movie. By the way, is Ready Player One reminding anyone else of the “Imagination Land” episode(s) of “South Park”…?

You can check out the trailer below and then make sure to let us know what you think!

The film is directed by Steven Spielberg, based on the novel by Ernie Cline, and stars Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn, Simon Pegg, Mark Rylance, T.J. Miller, Hannah John-Kamen, and Letitia Wright.

Ready Player One hits theaters March 30, 2018.

Synopsis:

In the near future, outcast teenager Wade Watts escapes from his bleak surroundings by logging in to the OASIS, a globally networked virtual utopia where users can lead idyllic alternate lives. When the eccentric billionaire who created the OASIS dies, he offers up his vast fortune as the prize in an elaborate treasure hunt. Along with gamers from around the world, Wade joins the adventure, and quickly finds himself pitted against powerful corporate foes and other ruthless competitors who will do anything, in the oasis or the real world, to reach the treasure first.

on

Earlier today we let you know Jordan Peele’s horror-thriller Get Out scored nods at this year’s Golden Globes for Best Motion Picture and Best Actor – both in the Comedy category.

Strange.

Get Out Scores Golden Globe Nominations… as a Comedy

Published

on

It was a few weeks back now when we let you guys in on the rather puzzling news that the Golden Globes was considering Jordan Peele horror-thriller Get Out as a nominee…

As a comedy.

As strange as that news was, it seems it wasn’t a joke in its own right as Jordan Peele’s Get Out has scored a nomination for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy. The news broke this morning with the full release of this year’s nominations via EW.

You can check out the full list HERE.

One cool thing is that actor Daniel Kaluuya also scored a nod for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – again, Musical or Comedy. Sad and borderline ridiculous that Peele didn’t score nods as director OR screenwriter. For shame, Golden Globes.

What do you think of this news? Are you just glad Get Out got SOME love from this year’s Gloden Globes, or could you care less about awards season? Let us know below!

Synopsis:
Now that Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams), have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy and Dean. At first, Chris reads the family’s overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter’s interracial relationship; but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he could never have imagined.
