My Review Of “The Bay” 2012


the bay poster
Barry Levinson’s “The Bay” is not your typical found footage film. It is more of a documentary discussing the tragic events through compiled footage. Much like the reality shows on TLC or History Channel. The story revolves around a bay harbor town in Maryland nestled in the Chesapeake Bay area and the ecological disaster that unfolds. This movie stars Kristen Connolly, Jane McNeill and Christopher Denham but they are not the sole maestro's of this dark tale. Told through the lenses of multiple television reporter footage, video camera’s ranging from surveillance, camcorder and web cam footage there are a host of doomed characters in this film that play out a horrendous scenario in almost too realistic fashion. The story unfolds with an eerie calm and warning much in the way real life tends to play out in the digital age with attention being demanded to certain social flaws, lack of protection for environment, responsible consumerism or proper understanding of consequences of commercialism. Only this film brings the worlds of doom-n-gloomer’s and human irresponsibility full force into a hellish realization. The story is a cross between environmental disaster and creature feature, yet is 100% nightmare.

“The Bay” manages to string together a very intense and creepy story by pulling you into the film through a witness of the disaster who managed to survive. A lot of people in this poor town did not! You would think the compiling of so many different types of footage from so many different video sources would be choppy or confusing but in this film’s case it runs smoothly and allows you not get wrapped into the story almost becoming unaware that it is a found footage styled movie. I felt like I was watching the real terror unfold after the event. Much like I tend to watch those shows that relive the disaster’s our world lives daily around the globe in order to find warning signs and learn for better preparedness of the future. I was surprised by how invested in this film I became as I sat with my eyes bugged out, holding my breath and cringing at all the gory goodness “The Bay” offers. I loved this movie.

Psychotic Saturdays! Six Films That Show When Science And Sci-Fi Get Evil



005 - Copy
This week on Psychotic Saturdays! Saturday I decided to post six films that explore the scenarios of when science gets psychotic. From the classic tales to the out of this world visions the movies to indulge those psychotic tendencies are truly cult-astic insanity!












1. Bleeders (1997)

Bleeders-movieSometimes the very cells within nature itself can produce devilishly psychotic effects. Something so small that only a microscope can detect can produce such twisted treats as maniacal flesh craving maniacs.
A man with an unknown disease travels to an island with his girlfriend where his relatives once lived, hoping to find a cure to his illness. While it was thought that his relatives were all dead he actually finds them to be living underground. However because they have been inbreeding for all these years they don't look right, plus they have developed a pretty bad eating habit. Will he chose his girlfriend or his people? Directed by Peter Svatek and starring Gillian Ferrabee, Pascal Gruselle and Roy Dupuis.





2. Brainscan (1994)

brainscan1994Directed by John Flynn and starring Edward Furlong, Frank Langella and T. Ryder Smith “Brainscan” shows that sometimes even man’s technology can produce some truly psychotic traits.
A lonely teenage horror-movie fan discovers a mysterious computer game that uses hypnosis to custom-tailor the game into the most terrifying experience imaginable. When he emerges from the hypnotic trance he is horrified to find evidence that the brutal murder depicted in the game actually happened -- and he's the killer.




3. Death Machine (1994)

death machineThis film proves that technology under the wrong peoples guidance can be down right demonic and deadly.
Chaank Armaments is experimenting with the ultimate fighting machine which is part human - part machine. So far, the Hardman project has been unreliable and has killed a number of innocent people. The genius behind this project is Jack who lives in a world of models, toys and magazines. When he is fired by Cale for killing a few corporate officers, he unleashes the ultimate killing machine called the 'Warbeast' against Cale and those who would help her. Directed by Stephen Norrington and starring Brad Dourif, Ely Pouget and William Hootkins.

5. Ice From The Sun (1999)

ice from the sunNot even the alternate realities nor other worlds are immune from the insanity of science within nature.
An alternate reality encased in ice, a woman who is turned into a dimension-hopping assassin, and a wizard's apprentice who is so evil he is a common enemy to the angels in heaven and the devils in hell. Directed by Eric Stanze and starring D.J. Vivona, Ramona Midgett and Angela Zimmerly.





6. Transgression (1994)

transgressionSometimes the true extent of science’s psychotic nature is only limited by the expanse of the human mind.
Driven and neurotic, TV reporter Mary Selby (played by Molly Jackson) wanted more than to just report the story of a local serial killer, she wanted to understand the compulsions that drove him; so she consulted psychiatrist Dr. Andre Zarem (played by Marc St. Camille). Immediately after utilizing her new insights in her newscasts, Mary is contacted by the killer. Despite the objections of her boyfriend, a police detective, Mary becomes the only link between the killer and authorities, something that doesn't hurt her ratings, but has a devastating effect on her personal life.  Directed by Michael DiPaolo and starring Molly Jackson, Marc St. Camille and Michael P. DiPaolo

First Peek At Bill Oberst Jr. In “The Dark Cinema”



Bill Oberst Jr. Dark CinemaThe Dark Cinema” released the first image of Bill Oberst Jr. who stars in the dark horror/sci-fi anthology series. The television show will feature original indie short films from around the world with Bill Oberst Jr. as host. It is about fucking time that these talented visionaries from around the world got proper recognition and exposure. Not all have the luck of their story getting spun into feature films nor do a lot of them ever get recognized. So this is a great concept that should give independent filmmakers a chance to be seen by some horror fans that normally wouldn’t venture far from Hollywood big budget projects. I know because until 4 years ago I moved on past the short films and Indie stuff without giving it a glance. I was a fool because I prefer the Indie stuff way more than the over produced Hollywood stuff. It just gives a more organic and raw horror experience. “The Dark Cinema” pilot episode, which centers around the theme “Evil Toys” boasts award-winning shorts from the United Kingdom, Italy, Portugal and the United States is due sometime early next year.

Kill Me Now chronicles one unforgettable night in the lives of a ragtag group of small-town teens. It's a night that will prove equally unforgettable for the sinister Driller Killer (Brett Fancy), a deranged serial killer bent on ridding the world of vapidity and dipshittedness (Everyone Else). When he comes upon the kids' all-night graduation party--conveniently held at a cabin deep in the woods--he finds both in spades. Unfortunately, Mr. Killer is about to learn something crappy bumper stickers learned long ago: stupid people can be deadly in large numbers. Kill Me Now blends horror, comedy, depth and plain jackassery to form a brew so potent you won't know whether to laugh, scream, or think about, like, life and stuff. The movie features performances from a staggering array of the Internet's hottest up-and-coming comedians, writing from the guys behind Those Aren't Muskets! and Cracked.com, direction from a dude whose previous work includes hardcore, joint-smokin', Twista-havin', Kanye-featurin' rap videos, and at least one scene where a chick totally gets a drill to the brain. But it's funny!

“Misfits” Movie In The Works?



Probably one of the most entertaining and more creative original shows out of the U.K has been “Misfits”. Currently in the 4th season the show focuses on youths serving community service time. Normal sitch for these days but unfortunately for them and the rest of society a freak storm spawns and rains down twisted and awesome powers that turn the normal debauched antics of a consumer society into moments of hilarious mayhem. Now the word is going around that there could be a “Misfits” movie in the works. One that could see some old favorites returning to the series as well as the new and yet just as entertaining ones. I wonder if Iwan Reon will be one of those returning. He was definitely the stand out Misfit for me, he and the Lauren Socha where my fave. Now it is the psychotic Joseph Gilgun that makes the show rock! Man I hope this happens. “Misfits” is one Brit show that Americans should really be watching! Currently on LogoTV and Hulu.
misfits movieMisfits creator Howard  Overman has revealed on the Panel Borders podcast that he has plans for the film and that old  characters from the E4 drama could return in the spin-off movie!
“I’ve  written the first draft of the script and we’ll see what happens,” Overman  said.“If it happens, it will involve past and present characters, I’m  not allowed to give away anything more than that.” Two characters that are in the mind of Overman are Simon and Alisha played by Iwan Rheon and Antonia Thomas. “Whether or not you’ve completely seen the  end of Simon and Alisha, if our movie has its way, is another issue,” Overman  teased.

Check Out The First “Riddick” Poster

The first version of the “Riddick” movie poster has been released. Vin Diesel reprises his role in the third feature film installment (I don’t count that animated film they tried to pass off in the box set). “Riddick” hits theatres in 2013. In the film Riddick has been stranded on a desolate, sun emblazoned  planet. The inhabitants, vicious creatures become aware of his presence and he has to fight for his life. His only viable action for rescue is to alert the mercs after him to his whereabouts and hitch a ride of the forsaken feeding pool of a planet. The first arrival carries a lethal new breed of mercenary, while the next transports someone with a personal score to settle with Riddick.

“Pacific Rim” Viral Campaign Kick Starts With Kaiju Alert System

pacific-rim-poster-610x905_thumb[2]The viral campaign for “Pacific Rim” kicked off with a test sequence of the Kaiju Alert System and a ‘leaked’ official memo. The campaign is to keep and build the frenzy of interest that the Guillermo del Toro directed sci-fi film hopes will bring in the crowds on July 12, 2013 when this big budget 3D adventure releases. Check out the emergency alert system and memo below.


“When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes—a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)—who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse.
Oscar® nominee Guillermo del Toro (“Pan’s Labyrinth”) is directing “Pacific Rim” from a script by Travis Beacham (“Clash of the Titans”). Thomas Tull, Jon Jashni and Mary Parent are producing, with Callum Greene serving as executive producer.
The film stars Charlie Hunnam (TV’s “Sons of Anarchy”), Idris Elba (“Thor”), Rinko Kikuchi (“The Brothers Bloom”), Charlie Day (“Horrible Bosses”), and Ron Perlman (the “Hellboy” films). The ensemble cast also includes Max Martini, Robert Kazinsky, Clifton Collins, Jr., Burn Gorman, Larry Joe Campbell, Diego Klattenhoff, and Brad William Henke.”

i scream poster


 “Those glorious 1980s horror-comedies are back with 'I SCREAM', the upcoming directorial debut from Scott Tepperman (Syfy Channel's 'GHOST HUNTERS INTERNATIONAL'). Paying homage to cult horror filmmakers like Frank Henenlotter ('BASKET CASE'), Larry Cohen ('IT'S ALIVE!') and Lloyd Kaufman ('THE TOXIC AVENGER'), 'I SCREAM' walks (and crosses) the often blurred line of comedy and camp - and of tastefulness - while managing to craft its own entertaining story that you'll just have to see to believe!”

Here is the synopsis for “Virginia Obscura”:
At the heart of most slasher films, there’s a bunch of sex-crazed teenagers getting drunk and wild, but what if a masked killer doesn’t crash the party? Instead what if, 20 years later, their darkest sins are suddenly exposed… and punished.
This is the story of a young woman’s embittered search for her birth father, after being conceived at one of those drunken parties. Her mother shamefully revealed the names of four men on her deathbed – these potential fathers awaken in a secluded farmhouse, kidnapped by the “daughter” they never knew existed.
Accused of being “deadbeat dads” by their volatile captor, while a pinhole of light allows a conflicted voyeur to spy on the troubling events inside the farmhouse; the twisted truth will finally be revealed in a showdown of DNA paternity test results, revelations and revenge!

Check out the teaser trailer for feature film “The Living”. A project that is set to begin filming in 2013 and will explore life after the Zombie Apocalypse. Read the description of the film posted on the Facebook Page.  A cataclysmic event of Biblical proportions turns much of Earth's human DNA into creatures ravenous for living flesh. In the post-apocalyptic aftermath, a small band of survivors fight them off while crossing open country to the last safe haven on the planet.

The Living is an ambitious new feature film project from the creative minds at Cineline Productions that promises to thrill. The end of the world will be revealed in this film follow the struggles of scattered survivors fighting for their lives and each other through and after the zombie apocalypse. The adventure begins as we watch our characters discover the world around them breaking down, but the information is sparse and with not much to go on. Our characters will face many twists and struggle to survive while clinging to the hope that mankind will find a way to thrive.

It's the cliffhanging serials of the 1940's coupled with the dark, suspenseful action and story telling of today's horror. This in combination with Cineline's long relationship with the horror genre leads to what promises to be a thrilling and quality tale of zombie mayhem and bloodletting. In its drive to put great stories in front of the audience on their own terms, we at Cineline know horror and love it with a passion. What sets us apart is that we are providing a great zombie tale with top of the line professional production and effects.
