  • Alien Bursts Forth In VR

    ,,,

    As the countdown to Ridley Scott’s highly anticipated Alien: Covenant continues, Twentieth Century Fox and partners unveiled a truly terrifying addition to the Alien canon – Alien: Covenant In Utero, A Virtual Reality Experience.   The invitation-only event, held at Technicolor’s Experience Center in Culver City featured forward thinking creatives from Fox, Ridley Scott Associates, Technicolor’s MPC VR unit and others as well as multiple VR demo stations.  The 360° experience puts the viewer inside the gestation pod as the Alien Neomorph finishes developing and explodes out towards its first victim.  “We’ve always been on the receiving end (of the Alien),” says Alien: Covenant In Utero director, David Karlak, “now we get to be that creature.”  Karlak, whose acclaimed short film Rise brought him to Scott’s attention says the legendary filmmaker was heavily involved in the project from script to VR screen.  “Ridley is the original futurist,” Karlak continues, “he sees VR as an instrument of the future.”

  • This is no laughing matter: Tom Green talks about his role in the horror film “BETHANY”

    ,,

    Tom Green has been making people laugh for decades, however, now the comedian and sausage connoisseur is ready to make audiences scream.  Best known for his film FREDDY GOT FINGERED, which he also directed, Green has also played roles in CHARLIE’S ANGELS, ROAD TRIP, SUPERSTAR and even had his own TV show, THE TOM GREEN SHOW. Still, there is one genre he’s been keeping his distance from; horror.

    In his latest endeavor, Green plays a therapist to a woman who’s past and current situation are leading her towards insanity, in the horror film BETHANY. Shockingly unfunny and surprisingly well played, Green nails his role as the house-visiting therapist, leaving any notion of the comedian he truly is, off set.

  • Throwing out the playbook: Justin Barber and T.S Nowlin re-format found footage in their new alien abduction film “PHOENIX FORGOTTEN”!

    ,,

    Hitting theaters today, the Ridley Scott produced, alien-abduction genre bender, PHOENIX FORGOTTEN, is unlike any found-footage film in recent times. With nods towards MAKING A MURDERER, BLAIR WITCH, and THE X-FILES, the film blurs the line between fact and fiction in a fun and entertaining way.

    Directed by first-timer Justin Barber, PHOENIX FORGOTTEN uses a clever combination of documentary-style storytelling, found-footage realism, and real news clips to tell the story of the abduction of three high school students. Co-written alongside genre screenwriter/producer T.S. Nowlin (PACIFIC RIM, MAZE RUNNER series), Barber and Nowlin re-imagine the fascinating and incomprehensible events of March 13, 1997, or otherwise known as the Phoenix Lights; the most widely viewed UFO sighting in history.
