Vincenzo Natali to direct the Tremors TV pilot

Deadline is reporting that director Vincenzo Natali (Cube, Splice) has signed on to direct the pilot episode of Syfy’s Tremors TV series.

The pilot is written by Andrew Miller (The Secret Circle) and will take place 25 years after the original movie, as Perfection, Nv once again comes under threat from the killer Graboid worms. To defeat them, the town turns to Valentine McKee (the returning Kevin Bacon), who beat them once – but to do it again he’ll have to overcome age, alcohol and a delusional hero complex.

Tremors will be Natali’s first pilot, although he has credits on numerous TV shows, including the likes of Hannibal, American Gods, Orphan Black, Westworld, The Strain and Luke Cage.

Start looking for higher ground, because the pilot episode for the potential new Tremors series is digging closer to the surface.

Newswire: Cube director Vincenzo Natali tapped for Kevin Bacon’s Tremors pilot

Two veterans of late-night sci-fi movie programming are about to come together, with Deadline reporting that Vincenzo Natali—whose credits include Hannibal, Orphan Black, and the ’90s sci-fi thriller Cube—has signed on to direct the pilot for Kevin Bacon’s new Tremors TV show. As announced earlier this year, the series, produced by Blumhouse, will star Bacon, and air on Syfy.

Natali has largely worked in TV in recent years, lending his visual talents to everything from Westworld to Netflix’s Luke Cage. He signs on to a series that’s apparently something of a passion project for Bacon, who’ll be reprising his role as delusional, aging alcoholic Valentine McKee, once again called upon to face off against the fearsome Graboid menace.

Movie Review – Anti Matter (2016)

Anti Matter, 2016.

Written and Directed by Keir Burrows.

Starring Yaiza Figueroa, Philippa Carson, Tom Barber-Duffy, and Noah Maxwell Clarke.

Synopsis:

Ana, an Oxford PhD student finds herself unable to build new memories following an experiment to generate and travel through a wormhole. The story follows her increasingly desperate efforts to understand what happened, and to find out who – or what – is behind the rising horror in her life.

The minimalist approach to sci-fi is difficult to pull off. When it’s done well, it’s a good way to grab and intrigue your audience, open up philosophical questions and work within the constraints of a tight budget. You can’t be expansive and huge like Avatar for example, but as long as you are effective in your use of budget, and create an intimate and interesting story, then it can be effective. I think of some of my favourite Sci-Fi

Newswire: Deadpool’s Tim Miller to take a stab at directing Neuromancer

It’s been more than a year since the surprise success of Deadpool made its director, Tim Miller, a notable Hollywood name, a year that’s seen him depart the film’s high-profile sequel, bounce between a few different projects, and even get involved with Sonic The Hedgehog. Now, per The Hollywood Reporter, Miller has settled on a cinematic follow-up to the superhero farce, announcing that he’ll the latest director to try to bring William Gibson’s Neuromancer to the screen.

Gibson’s pioneering cyberpunk novel has defeated a number of directors over the years, most recently Cube’s Vincenzo Natali, who abandoned his own adaptation in 2015. Miller at least has some high-profile back-up for his efforts to capture Gibson’s influential world of manipulative A.I.s, cybernetically modified street samurai, and hapless hackers; Simon Kinberg, one of the big names behind Fox’s X-Men franchise ...

American Gods episode 5 review: Lemon Scented You

Ron Hogan May 29, 2017

American Gods' cast continues to excel with this week's introduction of Crispin Glover...

This review contains spoilers.

1.5 Lemon Scented You

It's difficult for American Gods to get much better than it does in Lemon Scented You, if only because it provides viewers with everything they've been waiting for while also giving them something completely unexpected. The show features some spectacular acting heavyweights, and while they've all had plenty of chances to show off their skills, this week gives every major character in the show a showcase moment, and to list them all would be to do a straight recap of the show, minute-by-minute. Suffice to say, I could not be any happier with American Gods than I am this week.

Watch the Short that Inspired ‘Cube’

Watch the Short that Inspired ‘Cube’
Canada’s Vincenzo Natali remains one of my favorite filmmakers and 1997’s Cube is still, in my opinion, one of the best high-concept thrillers of all time. The low-budget horror movie about a group of strangers trapped in endless levels of stark white cubes-that-kill was so popular it spawned two sequels and ushered in a host of one-room thrillers like Saw.

Five Non-Horror Shows That Genre Fans Will Love

Anyone that follows any of my social media profiles (I’m on everything short of LinkedIn) is aware that I watch a lot of television. Discovering cult classics like The Prisoner to current hits like American Horror Story, I legit schedule my lack of social life around my shows. I do have morals and refuse to post spoilers unlike the many assholes out there who just can’t resist a good Game Of Thrones supposed death. My love always resides in horror and there’s a variety of horror programming on several networks, each aiming for their own Walking Dead hit, but I don’t stick to just one type of programming. There’s other shows I’ve been checking out (Ok, maybe obsessed with) that prove to be just as riveting and, at times, just as scary as what you might find in a murder house.

Composer Mark Korven Discusses Crafting the Unsettling Sounds of ‘The Witch’

Mark Korven is a Toronto-based, award-winning composer of music for film and television, and has also composed feature film scores for acclaimed directors Deepa Mehta, Patricia Rozema and Vincenzo Natale. His latest work, for Robert Eggers‘ feature The Witch, helped elevate the truly unsettling film. The story follows a family of seven who are pulled apart at the seams by a malevolent force; while there are prolonged moments of downtime, it is still non-stop tension. The film is a “folk-tale” and if there’s anything to be learned, it is to honor your Mother and Father, don’t make a pact with Black Phillip (or any goat for that matter), and never play peek-a-boo with an infant in a New England field.

Sometimes, a film and its music are so symbiotic it’s impossible to separate one from the other. For instance, were you to only listen to the music from Timecrimes,

“If You Start on 10 on Your Dissonant Scale, How Do You Go Beyond That?” Composer Mark Korven on The Witch

A New England folktale envisioned by production designer turned director Robert Eggers has become a critical and box office darling. As striking as The Witch‘s imagery of a 17th century Puritan family exiled to live beside an ominous forest is, it is made even more haunting when combined with the score conceived by Toronto-based composer Mark Korven (Cube). Filmmaker: You must be pleased with the critical and box office reaction to The Witch. Korven: Both have been amazing. I certainly didn’t expect for the movie to go this far. When I started working on it I thought that a lot of people weren’t going […]

24 hours of Halloween horror on Netflix, from Scream to Stake Land

24 hours of Halloween horror on Netflix, from Scream to Stake Land
Traditionally, Halloween is about covering yourself in fake blood and going to a party so that people can repeatedly ask you what you came as. When all you really want is a nice night in, right?

Hence this indispensable guide to 12 classic terrifying movies on Netflix. That's 24 hours of horror (give or take), so you can freak yourself out from sundown to sundown without ever having to leave the comfort of your sofa.

Although we strongly advise that you check behind that sofa first - and the curtains while you're at it - for the sake of your peace of mind.

1. The Omen (1976)

Arriving hot on the heels of The Exorcist, Richard Donner's The Omen solidified the notion that small children are terrifying and probably possessed by the Devil. The '70s horror is still an effective frightener that boasts moments to make you leap out of your seat.

Toronto 2015: Ben Wheatley on 'High-Rise' and Cult Filmmaking

Toronto 2015: Ben Wheatley on 'High-Rise' and Cult Filmmaking
It's purely a coincidence, according to the publicist, that British director Ben Wheatley wanted to meet up at the massive, towering Trump Hotel while in town for the Toronto Film Festival; given the subject of the new movie he's just unveiled here, however, that claim is highly suspect. The 43-year-old filmmaker had just premiered his adaptation of J.G. Ballard's 1975 cult novel High-Rise at the fest a few nights prior, and those lucky enough to get tickets were treated to a vicious, surreal satire about residents at a multi-story luxury
