To get you prepped for Sony's official Region 1 DVD release of Jaume Balagueró's REC (review here) (yes, we know you Canadians have had it for a while now; you remind us every time we mention this) on July 14th, we've gotten our hands on the DVD trailer and a couple of clips for you.
Finally after what seems like forever we're getting our hands on an official Region 1 DVD release of Jaume Balagueró's REC (review here) (yes, we know you Canadians have had it for a while now) this coming July 14th.
Finally the film that inspired Quarantine, REC (review here), is getting a US DVD release of its own on July 14, 2009, and the sequel we've all been waiting for got its very own website. It's a good day to be a REC fan!
Paco Plaza and Jaume Balaguero, the men who brought us the cinéma-vérité delight known as REC (review), had a few choice words recently for Hollywood, Americans, and Quarantine.
We've been wondering just how bloody John Dowdle's Quarantine would be. Thanks to a new red band trailer, we have a better idea.
John Dowdle's Quarantine just won some of us over. No, it's not a picture of Jennifer Carpenter in the buff but something much better!
I’m baaaack. Not since four years ago, the first time we started the Fantasia blog has anyone had to do the coverage solo, so props to McCannibal for keeping the train rolling last week. It’s a tough job fitting in two, three, and sometimes four films a day, choking down a grease laden meal, drinking the skuzzy yeasty swill that is all you can get after leeching a beer ticket or two off of Mitch, and heading home at midnight to start writing.
As I mentioned in my opening soiree blog for this year’s Fantasia Festival, it’s been a tough one without my compadre Evil Andy. Fantasia is not a situation where one can be semi-committal – any given time of day where other obligations tie you down can lead to a cinematic masterpiece (or disasterpiece) slipping through your fingers.
AITH picked up the newest trailer for Quarantine and it raised some new questions. We know that everything is shot from a news cameraman's equipment, but the entire film looks pretty steady and in HD. Maybe all the complaints via Cloverfield-sickness made director John Dowdle opt for a less shaky film?
Cinéma-vérité. Reality horror. An unblinking look at terror at its most shaky. Call it what you will, the new trend of shot-on-the-cheap films featuring “found footage” from some horrifying incident or another isn’t going away anytime soon.
Over the weekend, those Spanish badasses at Aullidos got their hands on the first teaser poster for REC 2, the inevitable sequel to REC (review) that will hopefully take things in a completely different direction...
If you saw The Strangers (review) this past week, there's a good chance the trailer for REC's American remake played before the feature presentation. Up until now the film's rating was still in limbo.
REC (review) directors Jaume Balaguero and Paco Plaza have been asked to once again show the world horrific events through the eyes of a hand-held camera.
