  • “THE MUMMY” (Review)

    ,,

    When it comes to horror, I’m Old School.  Mention “The Mummy” and I immediately think of Karloff’s 1932 classic… or Christopher Lee’s glorious Hammer remake… but there’s a new Mummy in town and this one is a total b!tch.  In an innovative twist, stunning Algerian actress Sofia Boutella plays Ahmanet, an Egyptian princess entombed alive after murdering her father and others during a savage power grab. Boutella is exotic, commanding and moves like a jungle cat – no surprise as she was one of Madonna’s dancers on her Sticky & Sweet Tour. Boutella also practically stole Kingsman: The Secret Service as the legless assassin. In The Mummy she owns the screen whenever she’s on.  This young actress has no problem facing down co-star Tom Cruise, a shoo-in for Dorian Gray as he seemingly hasn’t aged since Top Gun.  Cruise plays Nick Morton, a roguish soldier of fortune with a passion for antiquities who stumbles upon the princess’ hidden tomb thanks to a map stolen from a feisty British archaeologist (Annabelle Wallis).  Jurassic World’s Jake Johnson provides some comic relief as Cruise’s jokey army buddy who dies, then comes back to haunt him. Literally.  They ignore all the signs that this is one sarcophagus that should stay buried and fly it back to London, or try to – their plane crashes in an outstanding feat of action filmmaking that took over 16 parabolic flights to capture Cruise and Wallis knocking around in Zero G.

Slowly fading into unsettling views of the area, suspicion begins to build and suggests the Argentinian city may not be as peaceful as it sounds. Then, absolute chaos erupts. WHAT THE WATERS LEFT BEHIND looks like it will be a torture-filled, grungy horror masterpiece. Blood and gore film fans: keep an eye on this release. It will be a blood-bath.

  • Phil Tippett’s stop-motion project “MAD GOD PART 3” Kickstarter details, exclusive stills

    Oscar and Emmy Award-winning visual effects mastermind Phil Tippett is currently working on a third installment of his stop-motion series MAD GOD, fully funded by Kickstarter. MAD GOD Part 1 earned a mind-blowing $124,156, surpassing its pledged $40,000 goal to bring it to life and proves it’s a project that fans yearn for.

    For those unfamiliar, read more about MAD GOD below:

    Mad God is an experimental, hand-made, animated film, set in a Miltonesque world of monsters, mad scientists, and war pigs.

    Directed by legendary visual effects and stop-motion craftsman Phil Tippett, the sets, creatures, effects and spirit are, in every way, independent and created from the heart.  Sometimes that heart is bursting with love for the craft, while other times it’s punctured and bleeding all over the place… 24 frames per second.

    MAD GOD is a mature film made with technology that spans the history of cinema.

    ,

    Cutting his teeth as a special effects artist, stuntman and second unit director, Eric D.

One thing lead to another and it wasn’t long before his short film “Annas Playground” was shortlisted for an Academy Award nomination. And whilst it didn’t quite make it into the final few, it opened the door and earned him both respect and representation which ultimately resulting in the script for his directorial debut, VOICE FROM THE STONE, reaching his hands.
