If you were around these parts last week, you may have put your name into the hat for a couple of contest we were running. The first was a contest to win a blu-ray and autographed poster for Lucky McKee & Chris Sivertson’s All Cheerleaders Must Die (review), which is out on DVD and blu-ray tomorrow.

I really dug Daybreakers (review) and have been waiting patiently for the release of the Spierig Brothers' upcoming time travel re-team with Ethan Hawke. [Continue reading]

I know what you're thinking. Why is there a trailer for a romance on Quiet Earth? Just bear with me for a moment because if the trailer is accurate to the story, there's a whole lot more going on in The One I Love than just a couple who are ready to call their relationship over and decide to give it one last go with a weekend re-treat.

Reading the headline from the news release for Cybernatural, the first thing that came to mind was how on earth I'd missed a new movie from Timur Bekmambetov. Turns out he isn't directing this bit of horror, only presenting. But I figure I'll give him the benefit and give this a go. [Continue reading]

Marina Antunes [Celluloid 07.18.14] documentary

Narrated by Sean Astin and featuring interviews with industry innovators and heavyweights, Video Games: The Movie was in a prime spot to provide the quintessential documentary on gaming and truth is, you can't knock it for trying. Snead brings together not only an impressive list of industry luminaries but he asks many of the right questions. The problem is that the m... [Continue reading (1 comment)]

Marina Antunes [Celluloid 07.17.14] thriller

The nuclear apocalypse has long been a fascination and many a movie have dealt with the lead up or the aftermath of the event. In the case of Hungarian director Peter Engert's movie, Aftermath deals with the events immediately after a number of bombs go off in the US. We follow a group of individuals who are thrown together by chance as they try to survive the first m... [Continue reading (1 comment)]

If you watch one film this week, watch Snowpiercer on VOD. If you watch two films, make sure the second is Johnothan Glazer's Under The Skin, a hypnotic, Kubrickian scifi ball buster that sees Scarlett Johansson at her most man-eaterish. Expect stillness and beauty and horror all at once. Expect something profound. This is cinema, people! [Continue reading (2 comments)]

Marina Antunes [Cathode Ray Mission 07.16.14] scifi thriller drama adventure

I never considered the idea to adapt Terry Gilliam's 12 Monkeys could end well and thought the first full trailer for the SyFy produced series doesn't look terrible, it's not exactly making me jump with glee. It all feels a little too similar to the movie but not quite on the same level… [Continue reading (1 comment)]

Marina Antunes [Contests 07.15.14] horror

We haven't touched based with Paul Hough's horror movie The Human Race since posting a trailer last year but in the months since, the movie has been making the rounds of the genre film festivals and will be released on DVD next week and we've got a little contest to celebrate.

Way back when, we were really impressed with The Signal (review), a little movie that encompassed everything from survivalist thriller to all out horror. It was a great concept directed by three talented young directors including Dan Bush. [Continue reading (1 comment)]

I think it may actually be coming. At least that's what the studio is leading us to believe with a newly released trailer and poster for Alexandre Aja's Horns. [Continue reading]

We've been covering director Shaun Rana's projects over the last few years, from the concept art for Days of Victory to the kick ass concept trailer for Warren Lich. Now Rana, still working with many of the same themes, has created a concept video for another potential project: ELECTUS: Days of Enlightenment. [Continue reading]

In the centre of the film is Marc, a dissatisfied Spanish software developer who is working overtime out of fear of being fired as a redundancy. All this stress and overwork is causing him problems with his girlfriend, so when the last words he speaks to her before the plague hits are out of anger, he becomes obsessed with finding her and sets out on a journey through...

The writing, producing and directing team of Cody Calahan and Chad Archibald are at it again. Last year the pair co-wrote and Calahan directed Antisocial which I rather liked, and now the pair are switching gears with Calahan co-writing and Archibald directing The Drownsman. [Continue reading]

Terry Brooks' beloved Shannara series has been on the table for adaptation for years now, but MTV have picked up the gauntlet, green-lighting a 10 episode first season. I can only assume the decision to finally invest in the sprawling post-apocalyptic/Fantasy series is due to the popularity of HBO's Game of Thones, but who cares, I honestly never thought we'd see this...

I'd nearly forgotten that the sequel was in the works for release this year until a trailer for the Matt Reeves directed Dawn of the Planet of the Apes appeared and forced everyone to take note. It didn't look like Reeves was messing around but it remained to be seen if he could deliver on the promise of that trailer and truth be told, the director that has yet to mis...

Daybreakers fans will be excited to hear that the Spierig Brothers' new time travel thriller has been wowing festival audiences pretty consistently, so it sounds like Predestination could be this year's Looper. And let's face it, there's always room for another intelligent time travel flick. [Continue reading (1 comment)]

Adaptations of Philip K. Dick stories are commonplace but they rarely manage to be successful, often taking great ideas and sucking out what makes them great leaving an oft glossy but empty shell. John Alan Simon's debut Radio Free Albemuth takes a different approach. The independently produced feature written and directed by Simon, is more prudent in production but k... [Continue reading]

Canadian director Atom Egoyan has not been enjoying a good streak over the last few years and it's getting to the point now where his output of mediocre (or down right terrible) will begin to outweigh the highlights of his career. [Continue reading]

Long time QE readers will recognize Craig DiLouie as the author of some of the most intense and unique PA and zombie fiction published over the last few years. Gaining traction quickly on the indie scene with titles like Tooth and Nail and his Infection series with Permuted Press, DiLouie has now caught the eye of the big boys at Simon & Schuster who have published hi...

Fantasia Film Festival kicks off next week and the announcement of the remaining line-up reads like a who's who of hotly anticipated International and World premieres along with a load of festival (and fan) favourites. [Continue reading]

Well this is timely. Hot on the heels of the terrible key art released earlier today, the marketing folks have opted to try and save their hides by releasing the first trailer for Exodus: Gods and Kings. As to whether their plan is successful... I'm not convinced. [Continue reading (1 comment)]

Briefly: Kevin Smith shared the first poster for his new horror film TUSK with his legion of twitter followers. Interestingly, the director used his twitter handle, @ThatKevinSmith as credit because he believes the film wouldn't have existed without the power of Twitter. [Continue reading (2 comments)]

Have you forgotten about Terry Gilliam's The Zero Theorem? I wouldn't blame you if you had. It's been over a year since we caught a first glimpse at Gilliam's "second wind" (as our reviewer called it) and with a release date finally on the books we get a newly minted, surprisingly straight forward (if a little zany) trailer. [Continue reading]

If Frank Pavich's wonderful Jodorowsky's Dune exposes even one person to the director's legacy of work then I consider it a success. Whether anyone thinks that Jodorowsky's version of Dune would have been the transcendent experience that he believes it would have been, I think we can all agree that it would have been something unique indeed and the world is kind of a ...

You may have heard by now that Ridley Scott is working on his own biblical adaptation with Exodus: Gods and Kings. The movie that, until now, appeared to be a serious retelling of the story of Moses (with a really shitty title), has taken a turn for the worst. Think... marketing suicide.

Andrew Huculiak is best known as a musician - the drummer for Vancouver based We Are the City. The band's first debut was accompanied by 26 minute long short film made up of music videos so it's not too shocking that for their second full length album, the band wanted to make a companion movie. What is odd is that they decided to make that movie in Norway and in Norwe... [Continue reading]

Ever wonder what would happen if Thing dragged one of the Adams kids through a seedy underworld of dirty comics, contraband pesticides and underground sex clubs? That's kind of what Bloody Knuckles is about. [Continue reading]
