Way back in 2011, the bizarre story broke that Quentin Tarantino had purchased video footage of a young girl overdosing on drugs. Word was that Tarantino was going to release all of the footage as a movie, which was to be titled Upper.
We just got an e-mail from filmmaker Justin Cole who has addressed some of the controversy around his project The Upper Footage. Read on for an open letter to the fans and an explanation of exactly what the deal with this flick is. The story just keeps getting stranger by the minute.
The Upper Footage is getting ready to be screened in New York City on Friday, February 1st, and we have your chance to get into the flick and check it out on us! Read on to see how you can become one of the lucky ones.
We've dished on this film from the get-go. From its origins as an internet mystery to the present day when it'll be screened in New York City, The Upper Footage has had an interesting road thus far, and now you can see the newest trailer.
Like it or not, people will be talking about Ridley Scott's Prometheus for decades to come. If that's not the sign of a good film, I don't know what is; however, one YouTube user has assembled a video that outlines everything that's wrong with the flick. Agree or disagree? Let us know!
Everyone has an opinion on Prometheus, and since it is a relatively slow news day thus far, we thought it would be cool to share just what Django Unchained director Quentin Tarantino thought of the flick.
Another day, another schedule for the 2012 San Diego Comic-Con. Next up is Day 3 - Saturday, July 14th - which is just about as chock-full of events for the horror crowd as Friday the 13th!
Ever since it hit our radar months ago, The Upper Footage (formerly Upper) has both confused and intrigued us. Amongst the many virals for it, we've seen two trailers and more but never any mention of when we could see the actual "footage". However, that could be changing soon.
One of these years I swear I'm going to make it to Catalonia for the Sitges International Fantastic Film Festival. What other fest would dedicate its image to and center its 2012 theme around such an iconic concept as the end of the world?
Another teaser trailer for The Upper Footage (formerly Upper) came our way today and it is every bit as weird and mysterious as the last. Check it out!
Truth be told, I hadn't heard one word about The Upper Footage (formerly Upper) before today. And now that I know all about it... well, I'm just not sure what to make of any of it. But in a few short months some of us will have the opportunity to find out.
A few months ago we were sent information about a viral video that had surfaced which may or may not have been real. Almost immediately all sorts of odd reports began surfacing. Apparently a YouTube video appeared earlier this year which showed a girl overdosing while her friends stood around and jeered her. Now the word is that before this video surfaced, an extortion plot was hatched to get some scratch out of the people involved in the scene (which resulted in the girl's death). No one would pony up the dough so parts of the 393 minutes of footage began leaking online... enter Quentin Tarantino.
We're not sure just how genre-worthy co-writer/director RZA's upcoming directorial debut The Man With the Iron Fists, an epic-style action adventure flick modeled after classic kung-fu flicks of the 70s, is; but when you've got a co-writer like Eli Roth and Quentin Tarantino presenting the film as the proverbial cherry on top, it's hard to not pay attention to what sounds like a rather intriguing and pretty badass movie.
Okay, stay with me here because this gets strange. According to the rumors we're hearing, a YouTube video appeared earlier this year which showed a girl overdosing while her friends stood around and jeered her (what a great bunch of amigos!) Now the word is that before this video surfaced, an extortion plot was hatched to get some scratch out of the people involved in the scene (which resulted in the girl's death). No one would pony up the dough so parts of the 393 minutes of footage began leaking online... enter Quentin Tarantino.
It's finally happening, folks! Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino's celebration of gory B-movies, Grindhouse, will be coming home to Blu-ray high definition this fall, complete and with faux trailers intact, and we've got all of the details for you!
