Marina Antunes [Celluloid 08.24.16] thriller drama

With so many films being released every week, it's hard to be noticed among the throngs, particularly so when your movie doesn't star a widely recognizable face. First time director Chad L. Scheifele has found a way to cut through the noise by tackling controversial subject matter. [Continue reading]

If you thought we were done with videos that kill people, we were totally wrong. It's been over a decade since Hideo Nakata's The Ring 2 was released and that appears to be long enough for the stink to wear off the franchise because another entry is coming. [Continue reading]

Marina Antunes [Celluloid 08.23.16] Denmark horror thriller drama

His fiancé is worried, his boss knows something is up and when Michael takes some money from some shady characters, it looks as though the life he carefully constructed during his sobriety is about to fall apart.

Marina Antunes [Celluloid 08.22.16] scifi

British director Neil Johnson is a favourite around these parts. His sci-fi and horror extravaganzas may not have the biggest budgets or glossiest effects but they're a heck of a lot of fun and from the sounds of it, he's back at it. [Continue reading (1 comment)]

Simon Read [Celluloid 08.19.16]

Having recently returned from the Transylvania IFF, where his new short film Saint Frankenstein picked up the Best Film Award in the Shadows Shorts Competition, writer/director Scooter McCrae agreed to field a few questions for Quiet Earth. [Continue reading (3 comments)]

Marina Antunes [Celluloid 08.18.16] Russia drama

Teen stories often share similar DNA. They'e either romances or comedies or tales of kids acting out and the later usually include booze, drugs and sex or some combination of the three. That's not the case Kirill Serebrennikov's The Student. [Continue reading]

Marina Antunes [Celluloid 08.17.16] Switzerland documentary

I love a good documentary but I have a real soft spot for unconventional ones. Documentaries that either capture something strange and/or unique or those which are unconventional. Nikolaus Geyrhalter's Homo Sapiens appears to be right up my alley. [Continue reading (1 comment)]

Marina Antunes [Celluloid 08.16.16] thriller

Though it asked more questions than it answered, the teaser trailer for Denis Villeneuve's Arrival was more than enough to get my attention. Heck, the mention of Villeneuve's name was enough to get me on board with the project but for those who need more, we've got more for you. [Continue reading (2 comments)]

Marina Antunes [Celluloid 08.12.16] thriller

Like many outside Sweden, I first saw Joel Kinnaman sometime in 2010 when Easy Money made its way across the international waters into North America. In it, Kinnaman plays JW, a good kid attending an elite school who finds himself bending the law to fit in with the right crowd. It was a great performance that spanned over three movies but by the time the third came ar... [Continue reading]

Christopher Webster [Celluloid 08.11.16] Brazil post apocalyptic scifi horror

Spotted this simply stunning post-apocalyptic trailer over at ScreenAnarchy this morning. A striking, ash-covered world that looks like it's been built from the ground up, the film boasts some pretty incredible production design. With so much emphasis on verisimilitude these days it feels like we haven't seen this kind of world building in the PA film in a long time. [Continue reading]

Marina Antunes [Celluloid 08.11.16] thriller mystery

Sometimes don't you just wish you could hit reset on your life? Walk away from everything, take on a new name, a new identity and start a brand new life? What would happen if your new life came into close proximity to your old life? That's the conceit at the centre of Joshua Marston's Complete Unknown. [Continue reading]

Marina Antunes [Celluloid 08.11.16] Iran horror thriller

One of the movies which garnered a lot of attention coming out of Sundance was Babak Anvari's Under the Shadow which is being toted by many as one of the best horror movies of the year and if this trailer is any indication, we may be in for a real treat. [Continue reading]

John Connor [Celluloid 08.10.16] horror

Steven DeGennaro’s Found Footage 3D will have its world premiere at the Bruce Campbell Horror Film Festival in Chicago in August. The horror film is at once a hilarious meta commentary on the absurdity of the found footage genre while also taking it to a new and seemingly terrifying place. [Continue reading]

Marina Antunes [Celluloid 08.09.16] thriller

I'm liking this recent trend of horror movies in which kids try to pass one over on an unsuspecting victim only to end up victims themselves. Such is the case with Don't Breathe (trailer) which opens later this month and Kasra Farahani's The Waiting. [Continue reading (1 comment)]

Marina Antunes [Celluloid 08.09.16] scifi

A Denis Villeneuve movie is always a bit of an event but of late, he's really been knocking them out of the ballpark and while we hold our bated breaths for his vision for the Blade Runner sequel, he's gone ahead and dropped a sci-fi movie about an alien invasion. [Continue reading (2 comments)]

UPDATE: The full trailer has landed! Find it below!]

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter has received an official Japanese teaser trailer. The fifth and supposedly final chapter in the series hits theaters January 27, 2017. [Continue reading]

Christopher Webster [Celluloid 08.09.16] horror

Easily one of my most anticipated horror films in the coming year is The Belko Experiment, written by James Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy, Slither) and directed by Greg McLaean (Wolf Creek). The film concerns the employees of Belko Industries who are are one day ordered to kill each other or be killed themselves. [Continue reading]

Here's a bit of wackiness to kick off your weekend: the batshit crazy trailer for Danny Perez's Antibirth. [Continue reading]

Marina Antunes [Celluloid 08.04.16] China thriller

I've read the horror stories of Chinese drivers intentionally running over accident victims multiple times to ensure they're dead because it's cheaper to pay for a funeral than to cover the medical bills of a traffic accident victim. Apparently the man at the centre of Old Stone didn't get the memo. [Continue reading]

Marina Antunes [Celluloid 08.03.16] horror

A couple of years ago news reports surfaced about a California City which was being terrorized by a group of people dressed as clowns. That event, which were likely inspired by horror movies, has now spawned a horror movie of its own: Clowntown. [Continue reading]

Marina Antunes [Celluloid 08.03.16] Canada horror

Leave it to a movie to introduce you to a concept you'd never heard of. In this case, the idea of "vanishing twin" which is the layman's term for what happens when one twin dies in utero and is then partially or completely absorbed by the other baby. This idea is at the centre of Cody Calahan's new horror movie Let Her Out. [Continue reading]

Marina Antunes [Celluloid 08.03.16] Laos horror

Here's the deal with Mattie Do: she's awesome. Not only is she one of the leading voices of the emerging Lao film industry – and I mean emerging; in total the country has produced about a dozen movies – she's also the country's first female director. It just happens that she's also a lover of horror and a damned fine filmmaker at that. [Continue reading (1 comment)]

Marina Antunes [Celluloid 08.03.16] horror comedy

It's throwback day here at Quiet Earth. Close on the heels of the announcement that 80s throwback Lake Nowhere is being released in August, it seems appropriate that we share the new trailer for Anna Biller's 60s themed The Love Witch. [Continue reading]

Christopher Webster [DVD News 08.03.16] horror

A huge hit on the fest circuit last year, Lake Nowhere is a love letter to VHS horror and slasher movies of the 70s, going so far as to emulate the aesthetic. It was made with the participation of Brooklyn based performance artists The Ravacon Collective. [Continue reading]

Jason Widgington [Celluloid 08.02.16] horror

Bousman's latest offering, Abattoir, may not be as ambitious as those two, but it does seek to turn the standard haunted house theme on its head by asking the question, 'Can you build a haunted house?' [Continue reading]

Marina Antunes [Celluloid 07.28.16] Netherlands horror

Best known for his work as producer on the excellent Frankenstein's Army (review) and Dead End, Nick Jongerius is trying his hand at another aspect of filmmaking: directing. [Continue reading (1 comment)]
