A live streamed, publicity stunt, filmed inside London’s most famous scare attraction takes a terrifying turn as the event awakes an evil spirit. Something relentless and seemingly unstoppable starts stalking the celebrity guests through the claustrophobic halls of this maze of terror.

The Tombs was, if memory serves, filmed a number of years ago in London at the scare attraction The London Tombs… Making this, despite being filmed some time ago, the latest film in a current spate of hunted attraction films to have hit DVD (and VOD) shelves, following on from the likes of Haunt, from the writers of The Quiet Place, and The Asylum’s Clown. Both films from

Full Us Trailer for Animated Journalism Story 'Another Day of Life' Film

"They will erase Angola from the map. This is about lives." GKids has unveiled an official Us trailer for an indie animated feature titled Another Day of Life, a much more adult-level film than most of the other animated films that GKids releases. The film first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival last year, and won awards at numerous other film fests throughout last year. A gripping story of a three-month-long journey that renowned Polish reporter Ryszard "Ricardo" Kapuściński took in the 1970s across Angola, ravaged by a war, in which the front lines shifted like a kaleidoscope from one day to the next. Adapted directly from Kapuscinski's book, telling the true story of a journalist and the lengths to which he'll go to report the news. Featuring the voices of Kerry Shale, Daniel Flynn, Youssef Kerkour, Lillie Flynn, and Akie Kotabe. This looks damn good, featuring rotoscope animation to

Exclusive clip from sci-fi thriller ‘Arcadia’

  • Nerdly
Written and directed by Tom Large, the man behind 2012′s Beyond; and starring Marc Baylis (Misfits, Coronation Street), Akie Kotabe (TV’s Humans), Sid Phoenix (Florence Foster Jenkins, Beyond), Arcadia is a fast-paced London-based sci-fi thriller, mixing elements of Soylent Green and Elysium to come up with an ingenious, riveting look at a not too distant future gone badly wrong, where a corrupt government runs a cruel life lottery which one man tries to smash.

In the not too distant future, the population has risen to dangerous numbers and a deadly disease has gripped the world. To combat the death toll rising, ‘Arcadia’ has been built as safe disease-free havens for the privileged, where life expectancy is more than 130 years. Outside Arcadia, the average life lasts merely 40 years – unless they can earn a place amongst the elite. Charlie is 39 and living in London, with little time left he works every

Movie Review – Arcadia (2016)

Arcadia, 2016.

Written and Directed by Tom Large.

Starring Marc Baylis, Akie Kotabe, Sid Phoenix and Rufus Wright.

Synopsis:

One man fights to give his family a future in a world crippled by disease where medical care is controlled by a totalitarian regime.

Science Fiction over the years has often played on the notion of the Utopian society. Of course what ordinarily results from that in itself is dystopia. Either the totalitarian regime in control loses grip and the system of control fails, or indeed the Utopian ideal is only reserved to the wealthy or pre-selected. We’ve seen it with Philip K Dick, with Orwell, and pretty much any Science Fiction writer worth his salt. On the big screen the cinematic translations of the literal (sometimes based directly from literary source material) have offered the visual as well as philosophical stimulus, whilst great Sci-Fi will also represent a telling parallel

‘Everly’ DVD Review

  • Nerdly
Stars: Salma Hayek, Hiroyuki Watanabe, Laura Cepeda, Togo Igawa, Akie Kotabe, Gabriella Wright, Caroline Chikezie, Jennifer Blanc, Jelena Gavrilovic, Aisha Ayamah, Masashi Fujimoto | Written by Yale Hannon | Directed by Joe Lynch

When Everly (Hayek) betrays her sadistic mob boss Taiko (Watanabe), he sends a group of his most brutal men to torture and kill her. When she manages to get the upper hand and survives, she finds herself trapped in the apartment awaiting the next attempt on her life.

It’s a brave move to set a movie in an apartment which is basically one room, and not allow the main actor to leave it. There are a few cheats to make the world of Everly feel that bit more bigger, though claustrophobic but for the most part, this is about a strategic war in an apartment. While the action is thick and fast though, Everly is also about being a mother,

Everly review: Salma Hayek's action movie is total scuzz

Everly review: Salma Hayek's action movie is total scuzz
Director: Joe Lynch; Screenwriter: Yale Hannon; Starring: Salma Hayek, Hiroyuki Watanabe, Laura Cepeda, Togo Igawa; Running time: 92 mins; Certificate: 18

Maybe it was because Salma Hayek made a compelling badass in Oliver Stone's Savages that she signed up for the bullet-riddled, entirely brain-free splatter-fest that is Everly. But she doesn't get to wear a suit here and strut with intent. Instead, director Joe Lynch strips her from scene one, makes her crawl on the floor, ties her up, cages her and generally makes her the subject of every sordid violent fantasy he can think of. And, for what? Even slobbering Salma fans might come away feeling frustrated at the lack of an x-rated payoff.

Quentin Tarantino is the obvious standard-bearer for Lynch, who has previously directed B-movie shorts and one feature dubiously titled Knights of Badassdom (straight-to-video), but whereas Qt lavishes as much attention on characterisation as bloodletting, Lynch doesn't see the need.

‘Everly’ Trailer: Salma Hayek Dies Hard

‘Everly’ Trailer: Salma Hayek Dies Hard
Salma Hayek says “Yippee-ki-yay” to Japanese mobsters and hired killers in the international trailer for Everly, director Joe Lynch’s ode to Asian cinema and the action classic Die Hard. The Oscar nominee stars as a Yakuza prostitute-turned-informant who must find her inner John McClane and fend off assassins before she can whisk her young daughter away to a new life. Liam Neeson rebranded himself as an action hero with Taken and Scarlett Johansson did it this summer with Lucy. After recent turns in Here Comes The Boom and Grown Ups 2, can Everly do the same for Hayek?

Akie Kotabe and Hiroyuki Watanabe also star in Lynch’s follow-up to Knights Of Badassdom and Yale Hannon scripted the bloody shoot ‘em up, which features a score by The Walking Dead and Battlestar Galactica composer Bear McCreary. Radius-twc will first debut on iTunes and On Demand on January 23 before it
