First Look at Nicolas Cage's H.P. Lovecraft Inspired Film Color Out Of Space

One film that I’ve been very interested in seeing is Nicholas Cage’s Color Out of Space. The film is based on the H.P. Lovecraft story of the same name, and it was directed by Richard Stanley.

The film is set to premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival as part of their Midnight Madness lineup, and they also released an image giving us our first look at the film. The image features Cage standing next to a station wagon looking at some interesting visual changes taking place in front of him.

This story for the film is set in the present day and it centers on the Gardners, “a family who moves to a remote New England farmstead to escape the hustle of the 21st century. They are busy adapting to their new life when a meteorite crashes into their front yard. It seems to melt into the earth,

‘Mortal Engines’ Film Review: Dazzling Sci-Fi Fantasy Takes Big Risks and Succeeds

‘Mortal Engines’ Film Review: Dazzling Sci-Fi Fantasy Takes Big Risks and Succeeds
You’ve never seen a chase scene like the one at the start of “Mortal Engines”: A young woman scans the horizon and sees London, the whole city, rolling towards her on giant tank treads. She races back to another, smaller city and sounds an alarm. All the businesses and residences suddenly retract into a shell, and the smaller city rolls away at top speed.

Two giant cities are now chasing each other across the countryside, power-sliding towards the lips of a canyon, until one of them eats the other.

The only rational response to “Mortal Engines” is “Wow.”

Across the Mooniverse: is Mute a lost, 90s made Blade Runner sequel from another dimension or Button Moon The Movie on downers?

  • HeyUGuys
Author: Daniel Goodwin

Duncan Jones’ fourth feature, the long gestating twinkle in his eye/ pseudo Moon sequel Mute, is finally set to make its Netflix debut on Friday 23rd February. This British/German sci-fi production, filmed in Berlin, has been a passion project of Jones’ for some time and one that has careered from pipedream to planned and temporarily postponed. But when potent concepts flower within the minds of passionate artists they have a tendency to materialise in some form or another; whatever the cost. In Mute’s case, due to the evolution of online streaming triggering an industry metamorphosis, the film will mostly bypass cinemas* and arrive in the homes of Netflix subscribers on Friday 23rd February. What is known of the narrative is not much beyond a log-line with morsels extracted from myriad sources to form a patchwork understanding of what the story might be.

Blu-ray Review: The Otherworld (2013)

Richard Stanley has always marched to the beat of a unique drum. He hasn’t made very many narrative films (Hardware, Dust Devil) since arriving at the turn of the ’90s, but he has always fascinated due to his quirky spirit and dedication to the odd and unusual. And so it goes that his documentary The Otherworld (2013) follows a path true to his nature, but is shot with a touching sense of humanity in its look at strange phenomena and the people who embrace it.

The Otherworld is Stanley’s journey to an area of southern France he dubs “The Zone”; a place that holds many mysteries, especially to the folks that inhabit the land tucked away in the Pyrenees Mountains. Montsegur, Bugarach, and especially Rennes-Le-Chateau are regions and townships filled with fascinating characters and mystique necessary to elevate the material beyond a gorgeous travelogue, which it most definitely is as well.

Fantasia 2017 Wrapup: ‘Dead Shack’, ‘Le Manoir’, ‘Replace’ and ’78/52′

Dead Shack

This is a decent zombie horror-comedy from multitalented director Peter Ricq. While on vacation, three kids discover a nearby neighbor is harboring her undead family who need to be fed, and they have to save their unsuspecting parental guardians. It’s kind of a tourist trap led up by Lauren Holly as the neighbor. There’s some good humor from the father Roger (Donavon Stinson) who’s got good timing even if those around him don’t. He was the highlight for me, while the kids were all decent as well.

This is a fun little zombie flick, offering up cute comedy and decent gore effects, but it doesn’t bring anything new to the table. The biggest problem for me was a tonal shift; what’s relatively lighthearted for 90% of the movie is heavily marred by a shockingly grim finale. Worth a look for fans of the genre,
