First Casting for Marshall’s Doomsday!

Published

on

Rhoda Midra signs on for Doomsday!One of the coolest aspects of my recent trip out to London for the set of 28 Weeks Later had absolutely nothing to do with the movie; it was what went on in the hours we weren’t on set seeing the infected fuck shit up.

During one or our first nights out we were there we got to hang out with The Descent director Neil Marshall, and of course the topic of his next movie, Doomsday, was brought up and needless to say, it sounds like it’s going to be badass. Things are moving quickly on it now as The Hollywood Reporter delivered word that Rhona (Skinwalkers, “Boston Legal”) Mitra has been tasked with one of the lead roles in Marshall’s post-apocalyptic thriller.

30 years after a virus known as The Reaper has wiped out the population of a small country, the disease resurfaces in a new location and an elite group, of which Mitra will play the leader, is distpatched to find a cure for it once and for all.

Shooting on Doomsday is expected to start up as early as February of next year and the film will be distributed by Rogue when it’s all said and done. With all the good Marshall’s done handling our genre in the past few years I can’t wait to see what he does with a big budget and on an even bigger scale. Stay tuned for more as we learn it!

The Housemaid Haunts a New Trailer

Published

on

Here’s the thing… if we had the choice between cleaning up our own house or being haunted by a vengeful spectral servant of sorts, well… just hand us a friggin’ mop, wouldja already? Still, in the case of The Housemaid, it looks like nothing is gonna stop her from sensing shivers! Dig on this new trailer.

Derek Nguyen directs the flick, which stars Kate Nhung, Jean-Michel Richaud, Kim Xuan, Svitlana Kovalenko, and Rosie Fellner. Look for IFC Midnight’s release of The Housemaid coming to select theaters, VOD, and via Digital platforms in the U.S. on February 16, 2018.

Synopsis:
A forbidden passion awakens vengeful spirits within a haunted mansion in this bloodcurdling, erotic tour-de-force.

Vietnam, 1953: Linh (Nhung Kate), a poor, orphaned young woman, finds employment as a housemaid in a crumbling rubber plantation presided over by the emotionally fragile French officer Sebastien Laurent (Jean-Michel Richaud). Soon, a torrid love affair develops between the two – a taboo romance that rouses the ghost of Laurent’s dead wife, who won’t rest until blood flows.

Submerged in moody Gothic atmosphere, this stylish supernatural saga confronts the dark shadows of Vietnam’s colonial past while delivering heart-stopping scares.

The Executioners Knock on the Wrong Door! Get Axed!

Published

on

Ever since Funny Games I’ve been kind of soured on home invasion flicks. There have been some great ones, but seeing an entire family cower before two white-gloved youths proved a bit too unbelievable for me. I wanted to see the family fight back.

One thing’s for sure: Judging by the cover of The Executioners, someone has picked a feisty group of folks to pick on. Interest piqued.

Directed and written by Giorgio Serafini, the film stars Jemma Dallender, Natalie Burn, Rachel Rosenstein, and Justin Fischer. Look for the flick to be arriving on DVD, Digital, and On Demand March 27th from Lionsgate.

Synopsis:
When four friends go on a retreat to a secluded lakeside cabin, they soon realize they’re not alone. Masked intruders try to take them hostage, but as they fight back, the friends get a taste for something more than the will to survive. Will their fate be as victim or executioner?
