Asylum Nights

Dark Cinema, A & P Films LLP, and Café Oscuro Films present Asylum Nights, a new film from director and Emmy-award winning makeup artist Dean C. Jones.

Now through January 16, 2015, A & P Films LLP is running an Indiegogo campaign to raise funds for Asylum Nights. The funds raised will help the film maintain complete creative control.

In Asylum Nights, Andy Roberts takes over as head physician of the night shift at Evergreen Asylum after his predecessor is found dead. Things turn tragic when a night guard unleashes a wave of violence against the helpless patients. After Andy’s only friend, a night-shift nurse, is slain, he turns to Leon, a gentle giant, for help. Together they set out to stop the violence, but Leon has his own reasons for being in the asylum — and these reasons are just as bloody.

Dean C. Jones, director with A & P Films LLP, said “Asylum Nights can best be described as a mix between One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Seven, and Tod Browning’s Freaks. This film will push on every emotion, and is a rare gem.”

Horror icon and Lon Chaney-award winner, Bill Oberst Jr. (Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies, Criminal Minds, Take this Lollipop, Circus of the Dead) is attached to star in Asylum Nights.

THE ATTICUS INSTITUTE
From a Producer of The Conjuring

The Only Case of Demonic Possession
Recognized by the U.S. Government

AVAILABLE ON DVD AND BLU-RAY™
JANUARY 20, 2015

Anchor Bay Entertainment presents the disturbing new horror thriller THE ATTICUS INSTITUTE, from producer of The Conjuring Peter Safran, available on DVD and Blu-ray™ January 20st, 2015. Written and directed by Chris Sparling (writer of “Buried”) in his directorial debut, THE ATTICUS INSTITUTE stars Rya Kihlstedt (“Dexter”), William Mapother (“Lost”, The Grudge), Harry Groener (“Buffy The Vampire Slayer”), John Rubinstein (“Angel”) and Sharon Maughan (The Bank Job) and was executive produced by Dan Clifton. Special features include “The Making of The Atticus Institute” and deleted scenes.

Dr. Henry West founded The Atticus Institute in the early 1970s to test individuals expressing supernatural abilities – E.S.P., clairvoyance, psychokinesis, etc. Despite witnessing several noteworthy cases, nothing could have prepared Dr. West and his colleagues for Judith Winstead. She outperformed every subject they had ever studied – soon gaining the attention of the U.S. Department of Defense, who subsequently took control of the research facility. The more experiments they conducted on Judith, the clearer it became that her abilities were the manifestation of evil forces within her, prompting the government to take measures to weaponize this force. But they soon discovered there are powers that exist in this world that simply cannot be controlled. Now the details of the inexplicable events that occurred within The Atticus Institute are being made public after rem

The WOMEN in Black

Posted in Books, entertainment, ghosts, Goth on January 8, 2015 by chrisdsav

The Woman in Black which could almost be considered a franchise soon if they make one more, released its third entry to the box office this past weekend. The first movie was made for tv.
The story it self about a vengeful spectre that haunts a small English town and is based on a story by Susan Hill a novelist from Scarborough, Yorkshire. The book has been adapted three times and made into a play based on her story. Ifyou look at IMDB there is a few more listing one staring John Barymore. I am only focusing on the story by Hill.

WomanInBlack

http://www.susanhill.org.uk/

In her Story Arthur Kipp is telling the story to his four step children rather than when we watch the movie staring Danielle Radcliffe (aka Harry Potter. Interesting fact, in the 1989 made for TV movie Arthur is played by Adrian Rawlins, who would years later play James Potter Harry’s father, and Dr.Rhodes in TWIB2). Stella dies in childbirth and Arthur is a widower single dad, who is about to get fired when hes takes one last case to redeem him self with his firm.
The rest of the story plays out the same he goes to a town where every person acts like The Woman in Black is Lord Voldermort and cant seem to tell him whats wrong or who the big bad danger is they speak of.
Its really silly at times and makes you wonder why every one is soo superstious when we are on the cusp of the 1st World War. The Woman in Black 2 Angle of Death takes place during World War 2.
This woman in black would make her presence known when there has been a death of a child. SHe hangs her self after her kid dies in the Marsh surrounding the gothic looking estate. Now why she apeers to the Governess and her group in the sequel, I am not too sure. The new film The Woman in Black 2 Angel of Death, a group of kids led by their governess Phoebe Fox are brought to the island to avoid the bombings of London and they encounter the benevolent spirit who gets the kids to commit suicide one by one. Similar to the way she got Potters kid to do it in the last one. She had her kid taken away so she targets kids who are vulnerable and people who have problems involving kids. I wonder why she cant go haunt a pedopfile rpison and make all those people do bad things to them selves?
They veer pretty far away from the novel only keeping the characters names and other plot elements such as the ghost her self.

This series does have this really creepy gothic ghost story quality to it. There are cheap jump scenes and scares thruout the movie, I had to watch it in a theater with a bunch of screaming girls and that was no fun, mainly because they were teenagers and their voices and screaming was defining.
The new movies were made by the new HAMMER studios who also did The Quiet Ones and Let me In. Ther track record so far has been hit or miss, and its been mostly ghost movies.
Is it worth seeing? Yes and no the sequel is better than the first one only by the ending not sucking as much. The woman in Black remake was Danille Radcliffe first role out side the Harry Potter franchise and is worth looking at, but I prefer the sequel more.

Its currently playing at the Blackstone Valley Cinema in Millbury MA and other theaters.

Holy Shit

Originally posted on Variety:

HBO and IMAX have struck a deal to make “Game of Thrones” the first TV series to grace the theatrical distributors’ big screens.

An exclusive season 5 trailer, as well as the final two episodes of the fourth season, will get an unprecedented run Jan. 23-29 at 150 theaters in top markets across the U.S.

While the visual spectacle of the HBO hit makes it a natural for the big-screen treatment, “Thrones” will be digitally remastered to fit the IMAX format.

“The cinematic brilliance and grand scope of the series is perfect for the IMAX format,” said Pamela Levine, chief marketing officer at HBO.  “We are always looking to provide fans with new and exciting ways to experience the show and viewing two key episodes, along with the new trailer, on such an impressive platform makes for a great event.”

IMAX has indicated previously its intent to branch out beyond…

Pam Reviews the crappiest disaster movie I ever did see

Originally posted on timewantsaskeleton:

Starring Joel Gretsch and Reilly Dolman (who?) as a father and son team that are forced into solving the cause of global disasters. Neil and Colin Martin are nearly killed by a freak meteor strike (while the dialogue plays up that both men are lonely and bad with women) and soon after are contacted by Kathryn Keen (Emily Holmes) who works for a private company with an interest in an artifact that she believes is causing the disasters. Neil is a professor and archaeologist who is illogically broke and jumps at the chance to help after Colin negotiates the fee up to $100,000.

Fantasy Films

Over the last few weeks we have had an onslaught of Fantasy films and no Horror movies except The Babadook. Everything from Moses to Hobbits to wolves. All movies are playing at Black Stone Valley Cinema Deluxe 14 in Millbury MA

Exodus: Gods and Kings
The story of Moses the Barbarian as played by former Batman Christine Bale. What the fuck??? This was the most bizzaro casting by Ridley Scott trying again to strike lighting with a  hit similar to Gladiator. He tried it before with Robin Hood and failed. This time he reunites with Sigourney Weaver and we thought yayyyy but she has nothing to do in this movie except say how much she as in her character not her personally hates the Jews and to cast Moses out. Blink and you will miss Sir Ben Kingsley. God shows up as a kid next to a burning bush acting like a jerk wad.
Moses turns the Jews into an army with bows and arrows. Now its not as far fetched as Noah early this year with Noah teaming up with the Rock Lords from Gobots but its still as far fetched. I kept making Batman jokes every five mins. This was a fantasy take on a a well known Bible movie making Moses a bad ass leader.

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies
This was a great ending to the Hobbit trilogy. Martin Freeman was great in all three films. Ian McKellion was good as Gandolf. Richard Armitage as Okensheild and The Dwarves were well done and you really got to like them and get to know who they are. We do see some of them killed unfortunately no spoilers.
It was well done and entertaining. I didn’t leave this movie like I left the last tow kind of be fumbled wondering what next. Or in some cases bored. The biggest problem with this film series was the length. However as I sit and watch the bonus material for the Desolation of Smaug. Peter Jackson has directed all 6 films. I really enjoy the universe of Tolkien and all he created. Its a great feeling when you are watching this movie series. The battle is long and the action is great the creature effects are really awesome and maybe just maybe it would be cool to see other middle Earth stories. Smaug the Dragon is fantastic and its a quick scene with him and then he’s killed by Bard. Benedict Cumberbatch was very well cast as the Dragons voice. It was number one at the box office again this weekend showing Tolkien’s vision is still alive and thriving.

Into the Woods
I hated this movie. I just didn’t get it the songs were cheesy and over blown boring and mundane.  I liked the characters and I know Sondenheim is this hot shot director but this was just nothing I could get into. The baker was great Emily Blunt who played his wife was funny. Johnny Depp needs to STOP ACTING. Seriously one of the worst performances of the movie. He learned over Red Riding Hood like a Pedophile would oozing and drooling and talking about how little girls taste and ugh. Streep and Kendrenk Beware if you hate musical this movie is crap and just plain garbage writing. Chris Pine annoyed the hell out of me. I guess maybe it was not as bad as the live action Peter Pan. Walken looked like he slept through that movie.

A movie I want to mention directed by Tim Burton is Big Eyes as true story but has this creepy scene where the people around Amy Adams character come to life and stare at her with the Big Eyes
