Frightfest 2017 Interview: Brandon Christensen talks ‘Still/Born’

15 hours ago

In his last FrightFest 2017 interview of the day, host Stuart Wright talks Still/Born – which has its European Premiere on Monday 28th August – with writer/director Brandon Christensen.

For Mary, the joy of her infant son Adam’s birth is overshadowed by the devastating stillborn death of his twin brother Thomas. Concerned husband Jack relocates them to a spacious new home in secluded suburbia while Mary makes fast friends with their neighbor Rachel. But fresh faces, new surroundings, and even post-partum medication can’t spin Mary’s haunted motherhood mindset off its deepening descent into horrifying depression. Soon she’s convinced that an otherworldly evil wants to claim her remaining baby for its own. Is it madness or is something paranormal not going to stop until another child has been eaten alive?

The Horror Channel Frightfest takes place August 24th – 28th 2017 at both the Empire Cinema and Prince Charles Cinema in London’s Leicester Square. »

‘Agents of Mayhem’ Review (PS4)

18 hours ago

Agents of Mayhem is the latest outing from Volition Studios, the creators of the much loved Saints Row series of games. Oddly, whilst it’s set in the same world and features interlinking characters, Agents of Mayhem works hard to distance itself from the Saints games in structure and gameplay. As an example, it features a pseudo-open world approach that uses Seoul as a kind of hub before locking the player in to a much smaller space to participate in actual missions.

This kind of one foot in, one foot out approach is pervasive throughout Agents of Mayhem, and unfortunately it makes it impossible to judge either as a standalone game, or as a proper Saints series entry. It feels a bit like one of the Marvel spin-offs that no one was expecting or in need of, which is an interesting parallel because that’s also kind of how the »

Frightfest 2017 Interview: ‘Mindhack’ writer/director Royce Gorsuch

21 August 2017 2:01 AM, PDT

In the first of todays FrightFest 2017 interview, host Stuart Wright talks to writer/director Royce Gorsuch, whose film Mindhack has its European Premiere at this years Frightfest on Friday August 25th.

A brilliant scientist is on a mission to hack the human mind to save humanity from its own catastrophic errors and is pushed to do whatever is necessary to complete the assignment. An extraordinary visionary experience about the inner conflicts of being a culture-jamming creator, director Royce Gorsuch’s kaleidoscopic mindbender is an astonishingly visual tour de force about the cacophony of voices in our heads pushing us, confusing us, mixing signals, the ego, reason, and the mistaken evils which might come from accomplishing the goal. An inner space odyssey through reconciliation, forgiveness and self-sacrifice for the greater good.

The Horror Channel Frightfest takes place August 24th – 28th 2017 at both the Empire Cinema and Prince Charles Cinema in London’s Leicester Square. »
