MM Supports – The House Of Screaming Death

Published

on

House Of Screaming DeathAs a fellow Midlander, it has been a real pleasure to track the progress and throw my backing behind The House Of Screaming Death.

Courtesy of Pat the Bull Films and Lightbeam Productions, this feature length effort embraces the old-school aesthetic of traditional gothic horror accentuated by its vintage poster and the classic genre anthology structure, slowly creeping back into modern efforts such as VHS.

Consisting of four distinct stories titled The Lady In Grey, The Witch In The Mirror, The Vampyre and Diabolique, they are all connected through the unnerving narration of a mysterious figure merely known as The Architect. The stories are eerily brought to life through the direction of Troy Dennison, Rebecca Harris-Smith, Dave Hastings and Alex Bourne respectively.

Initially successful through their Indiegogo campaign, the team finally unleashed the impressive debut trailer of the film on Halloween, which you can view below.

Whilst we await word on a much deserved release date, you can track the progress of The House Of Screaming Death via Facebook and Twitter.

‘Millie Bobby Brown Voicing A VR Experience For Darren Aronofsky’ Is The Most 2018 Headline You’ll Read Today

Published

Stranger Things‘ Millie Bobby Brown has signed on to narrate the second ‘episode’ in a three-part virtual reality experience entitled Spheres, from creative auteur Darren Aronofsky.

Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty) lent her voice to the first episode, which was unveiled at the Sundance Film Festival. The third episode premiered before the second, at the Tribeca Film Festival, and was narrated by Patti Smith (Song to Song). Aronofsky has produced the series, which is described as a ‘virtual journey’ – because of course it is – and is based on the famous ‘Pale Blue Dot‘ image of Earth, taken by the Voyager 1 probe in 1990. All three episodes were directed by up-and-comer Eliza McNitt (Fistful of Stars).

The series will be shown off for the first time in its entirety at the Venice Film Festival, as part of the event’s virtual reality section, from the 29th of August until the 8th of September. Spheres will be released to the public on the Oculus VR system following the culmination of the VFF.

Millie Bobby Brown can next be seen in Legendary’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters, due on the 31st May next year.

Seth Rogen, Charlize Theron Comedy Flarsky Delayed Four Months To Open In Summer

Published

Lionsgate are feeling confident about their forthcoming comedy Flarsky.

The film, which stars Seth Rogen and Charlize Theron, recently scored highly in test screenings, with a majority of audience members giving it scores about 95%, and as such the studio now feel the feature can perform amongst the big boys in the Summer blockbuster season.

Flarsky will follow down-on-his-luck journalist Fred Flarsky (Rogen) who – following a series of ludicrous circumstances – catches the eye of the most powerful woman in the world, Charlotte Field (Theron). From there, Flarsky becomes a confidante and an integral member of her inner circle, as Field works her way towards the US Presidency.

The project had been slated for a February 8th 2019 release date, but following the positive test screenings Lionsgate have pushed the film back to the 7th of July – for some perspective, that’s the same weekend Ocean’s 8 opened this year.

Flarsky has been directed by Jonathan Levine, and also stars Alexander Skarsgard, Andy Serkis, and O’Shea Jackson Jr.

PETA Demands Boycott Of Alpha Following Animal Deaths Allegations

Published

on

PETA, the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, have called for a boycott of Sony Pictures’ upcoming historical family-adventure Alpha, after five bison were supposedly killed for the film’s shooting.

“Five sensitive bison lost their lives, all so that their bodies could be used as props in this wholly forgettable flick,” PETA’s Senior Vice-President Lisa Lange said in a statement, “PETA is calling on the public to show Hollywood that cruelty to animals will not be tolerated by refusing to buy a ticket to Alpha.”

The bison carcasses were used as props in the aftermath of a pivotal hunting scene in the film, which is set 20,000 years ago – shortly after the last Ice Age – and tells an origin tale for man’s partnership with dogs.

The deaths of the bison were uncovered after a 2016 investigation by the Hollywood Reporter which found that animal wrangler John Scott, who was supposedly overseen by the American Humane Association, had contacted the Longview Beef Jerky company in order to purchase the bodies of animals they had themselves killed. However, as this would then reasonably make the film’s production responsible for the creature’s deaths it would also subsequently breach the AHA’s code of conduct for filmmaking.

Alpha will not carry a tag in its credits that reads “No animals were harmed during the making of this film”, and is due for release on the 24th of August, rated 12A. It stars Kodi Smit-McPhee, Natassia Maithe, and Leonor Varnela, and was directed by Albert Hughes.
