quietearth [Celluloid 09.12.07] post apocalyptic movie news





Woohoo! Really, we have so many genre films right now, I am beaming, I wish you could see it. Anyways here's one from The Asylum which will be released on November 18th, and I don't know if that's dvd or on the sci-fi channel. There isn't much info on this, but basically the movies about the last man on earth who must battle the undead to survive.


UPDATE:
Special thanks to Jennifer Lee Wiggins who stars as Brianna in this flick for letting us know there is now a youtube trailer. And in case you don't make it down as far as the comments, she also let us know it's releasing on dvd! Thanks Jennifer!

2ND UPDATE:
We've been getting a lot of traffic on this post, and I spoke with Asylum on Friday November 9th, we'll be getting a copy for review which will be up by November 17th, and the actual release date is November 20th.

Yet another adaptation of Matheson's book of the 1950s, I Am Legend. Funny that it's coming out one month before the big budget Will Smith version.

Dont you just love the spamming about how this is a rip off, its a rip off on the omega man, its a rip off on I am legend, whine whine whine. Even mobious didnt get it, even though there was already a comment posted a month before he posted saying its BASED ON A BOOk, is it really that difficult to understand?

Book= I Am Legend (the best book I ever read)
The movies that followed are all good for there own reasons.
The Last Man On Earth
Omega Man
now= I Am Omega
soon= I Am Legend
Im just glad I get to see more movies adapted from the best book ever, hell the novel I am legend gave George A. Romero the idea for Night of the Living Dead which basically invented the zombie genre and I love the zombie genre.

I just saw this film. I've also watched other Asylum pictures, "Transmorphers". That one was difficult to watch. The Asylum appears to be trying very hard to get quality work off the ground. Now, a word about "I am Omega".

I liked it! They didn't try to pretend that it was so serious that they couldn't play it a little Campy (A littl like "Army of Darkness"). I've seen films of this caliber make it to the movie theatres that really were'nt as good. I don't know how that happens. Anyway there were goofy scenes and clever scenes and suspenseful scenes. One suspenseful one in particular was when a little boys shadow darts across a parking structure and ends up being face to face with Jennifer Wiggins. That made my daughter hide her eyes. That's a trmendous improvement for The Asylum!. The sound was top notch too! I particularly liked Jennifer lee Wiggins. She had such a Rebellious Pouty face, while still being cute. It worked. Decascos challenged himself beyond just being a Martial Artist with some emotional scenes. Right on! It's about time one of those types take a chance and try that. All in All I'm not sorry I spent my money on it. After suffering through parts of "Cabin Fever", which was only mediocre, I would have enjoyed this in a theatre at least equally as well if not more. Hope Asylum can keep this up. Oh, one harsh criticism I have. Why were those Mutant Zombies running around during the day. That was an extremely bad call. HELLO! Light sensitive! Soley Nocturnal is just a whole lot more scary. Some of those Zombie costumes, The "Bald guys" in particular weren't that good, I could see their flaws in the light. I thought, Please don't do that again. Watch this film folks it's pretty good. I've watched it twice already, FUN!

This must be the worst movie that exists. I'm not sure how the directors and producers can hold jobs or sleep at night knowing that such crap has been created. I want my hour of life and 4 dollars for rental back! Movie is slow, has no climax, only effects are the zombies (really bad K-mart bought body suits), there is no acting done in this film. I'm quite certain my 2 cats could portray this film better. I am actually considering proving this!!! I have just registered and have never made a comment on any movie until now because I cannot believe how boring and crap this actually is....I'm not sure which word should go first.

Overall if I could, I'd give this movie a 0 instead of 1. If you want to fall asleep quickly without any alcohol or drugs I recommend buying this film and watching it repeatedly.

Please do not operate heavy machinery for at least a year after watching this film, as the boredom is sure to last.

I pray to God there is not going to be a sequel.

How do you start a car by twisting wires together? What about the locking steering wheel?
This could be a good show if you fire the writers and start fresh.
What a disappointment!

Seriously! not only is this a freakin terrible movie. But the guys who made it should be sued by the makers of I AM LEGEND for copyright infringement. I mean, competely ripped off the entire movie. Even down to the main character talking to mannequins cause he's lonely...THIS MOVIE SUCKED!!!

Sy-Fy channel: Can you just buy The Omega Man? Its an older movie, cheap to buy and with Charlton Heston the acting is way, way better. This rip-off didn't even have a good ending or nice gratuitous sex. I could have made a better movie on a student film budget.
