IFC MIDNIGHT PICKS UP WELSH CULT REVENGE HORROR, THE FEAST

New Welsh-language cult revenge horror, The Feast was featured in a recent Moviehooker article on upcoming cult horror. Hey, it wasn’t a long list but The Feast was without a doubt my most anticipated film. I have read nothing but great reviews and I love the fact that it is filmed in the Welsh native language.

I am delighted to share with all the official press release from IFC Midnight. Horror fans! this is should be on your must-watch list!.

THE FEAST – OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE

NEW YORK, NY (April 29, 2021) – IFC Midnight announced today that they are acquiring North American rights to the Welsh-language supernatural revenge horror The Feast, directed by BAFTA-winning television director Lee Haven Jones in his feature debut. IFC Midnight will release the film Thanksgiving 2021.

Directed by Jones and written and produced by Roger Williams, The Feast stars Annes Elwy, Nia Roberts, and Julian Lewis Jones alongside Sion Alun Davies, Steffan Cennydd, Rhodri Meilir, and Lisa Palfrey. The Feast was produced through Ffilm Cymru Wales’ Cinematic scheme and was funded by S4C, Ffilm Cymru Wales, BFI (using funds from the National Lottery) and Fields Park.

The film was produced in association with Melville Media Limited with support from Great Point Media.

Rooted in the potent mythical fables of Wales, The Feast unfolds over the course of a single evening as a wealthy family gathers at their lavish home in the Welsh mountains for a dinner party, hosting a local businessman and neighbouring farmer to broker a business deal to mine the surrounding countryside. When a mysterious young woman arrives to be their waitress for the evening, the family’s beliefs and values are challenged as her quiet yet disturbing presence begins to unravel their lives – slowly, deliberately, and with the most terrifying of consequences.

A slow-burn meditation on history and tradition, greed and responsibility, identity and difference, The Feast is a contemporary morality tale that questions who is truly meant to inherit the earth, permeated with a mounting sense of dread that leads to a horrifying, blood-soaked conclusion.

Filmed in the Welsh language, The Feast made its world premiere as a Midnighters entry at the 2021 SXSW Film Festival, with Jones’ meticulous composition and Annes Elwy’s eerie central performance catching the attention of U.S. and international critics alike.

In a review for Screen International, Nikki Baughan praised her lead performance as “beguiling”, writing, “Annes Elwy is quietly mesmerizing…in a role which utilizes little dialogue, Elwy plums Cadi’s surprising depths with a quiet intensity”. Reviewing for Variety, Jessica Kiang wrote, “The chilly control of Jones’ filmmaking, enhanced by the pristine, deadened soundscape and Samuel Sim’s intriguing, atmospheric score, keeps our attention squirming on the hook,” adding, “the direction is so confident and the craft so impeccable that The Feast, though built from few ingredients, fills you up like a three-course meal”.

Arianna Bocco President of IFC Films, said, “It’s hard to shake the sense of fear and apprehension that you feel while watching The Feast, a terrifying and twisted fable that will keep you on the very edge of your seat until the shocking, grand guignol-worthy finale. We’re so excited to work with Lee on his feature debut and can’t wait to share The Feast with horror audiences everywhere.”

Writer and Producer Roger Williams added, “I’m thrilled IFC Midnight will be serving up The Feast in the USA and Canada. I’m certain audiences across North America will be entertained and horrified in equal measure by our unique Welsh film which thanks to IFC Midnight will now find the widest audience possible.”

The deal for the film was negotiated by IFC Films President Arianna Bocco and Director of Acquisitions Aijah Keith with Bankside Films representing the filmmakers.

A release date has yet to be confirmed. I will up date the article when I receive the news. As always, thanks for reading

Riders of Justice: Trailer+release date for new Mads Mikkelsen revenge film

Riders of Justice is a new revenge thriller/comedy starring  Mads MikkelsenNikolaj Lie KaasAndrea Heick Gadeberg 

Riders Of Justice has been on the radar now for a little under a year. I shared a small clip last year on social media and that clip didn’t even have subtitles but with Mikkelsen involved with director Anders Thomas Jensen again, I knew this was going to be something great. And, of course, Mikkelsen rocking the beard and jacket just like our beloved fallen hero, Richard in Shane Meadow’s, Dead Man’s Shoes.

Riders Of Justice tells the story of a man who lost his wife in a train crash. He travels back to Denmark to be with his only daughter, Mathilde to mourn. He is then approached by a mathematical genius that shows him that the train crash was far from an accident.

RIDERS OF JUSTICE TRAILER

So, for those of you that are not familiar with writer/director Anders Thomas Jensen, I thought I would tell you about his other quality movies you may have missed that also star Mikkelsen. Jensen & Mikkelsen are sort of like the Danish Scorsese and DiCaprio. They have worked on a few projects together. I thought I would hook you all up with the information on those movies.

THE GREEN BUTCHERS

The Green Butchers is a macabre horror-comedy about a couple of friends who decide to open their own butcher shop after taking too much shit off of their boss. When An electrician dies in the freezer of their new shop, there are two things they can do – 1, do the right thing and phone the cops…or, 2, sell the dead dude in the freezer as marinated chicken to their gullible customers. Which one do you think they choose?

This was just a tonne of fun and reminded me quite a bit of the French classic Delicatessen

ADAM’S APPLES

After The Green Butchers, there was Adam’s Apples. It is more of a dark drama than anything. It couldn’t be more different from The Green Butchers proving that they can almost tackle any genre.

The story of an ex-con neo-Nazi that is released into the care of a church before being allowed back into society. The film deals with the relationship between the neo-Nazi and the devoted church priest. Not much to it on the outside but Adam’s Apples is a deeply moving, thought-provoking and powerful film.

These three are the only ones that I know that Jensen and Mikkelsen have collaborated on. If I have missed any films, then I would be delighted if you were to let me know. I really hope that some of you ain’t heard of these flicks before. If so, you guys are in for a cinematic treat.

As always, thanks for reading.

Riders Of Justice is due for release on the 21st of May

3 newly released films you should check out on amazon prime

A list of newly released films on Amazon Prime Video I think you should check out.

To be honest, it seems that Amazon Prime Video has been a little slow with original content lately. Even though this list only features three films I thought they were all great. We are just not getting enough of them. Let’s get to it.

NEWLY RELEASED FILMS ON AMAZON PRIME VIDEO – I CARE A LOT

Rosamund Pike delivers another phenomenal performance in I Care A Lot. The story of a care worker who has been scamming her clients and taking control of their assets and money. She hears about the perfect client: An elderly woman; rich, forgetful…and more importantly: no family…or that’s what she thought. Her life is thrown into chaos when her only son, a mob boss comes asking questions about why his mother is being held against her own free will in a care home.

Co-starring Peter Dinklage as the mob boss, Diane Wiest and Macon Blair, I Care A Lot is a dark and odd comedy that may be a bit too odd for some. And, man, it was great to see Diane Wiest again. She did not disappoint.

NEWLY RELEASED FILMS ON AMAZON PRIME VIDEO –SOUND OF METAL

Riz Ahmed stars as a metal drummer who tours out of a van with his girlfriend. During their recent tour, Ruben learns that he is going to lose his hearing. The film follows his journey which is fuelled by bitterness, anger, resentment and acceptance.

The acting in this film is just off the charts. Riz Ahmed’s powerful performance is equally heartwarming as it is heartbreaking.

Don’t be expecting any action with this one. Sound Of Metal is as dramatic as they come but it sure does pack a punch.

After watching, I went and checked out some reviews and I was surprised to find complaints about the sound design. I thought the sound design was perfect but I guess I can get why some people wouldn’t like it. We get to hear (or not hear) what the character is going through; from the ringing in the ears to the full-on deafening silence. Then, just out of nowhere in what would seem like a normal establishing shot in any other film, there’s almost a piercing clarity and an explosion of sound. We get to hear this, our lead character doesn’t. It really made you appreciate the tiny little things that we all take for granted every day.

A lot of actors in Sound of Metal is from the deaf community. One of the leads in the film (Paul Raci) grew up with deaf parents. He is a prominent figure in the deaf community and also performs in an ASL (American Sign Language) Sabbath tribute band called Hands of Doom.

NEWLY RELEASED FILMS ON AMAZON PRIME VIDEO – THE MAURITANIAN

Another drama, this time starring Jodie Foster, Benedict Cumberbatch Tahar Rahim & Shailene Woodley

This film has popped up in a few groups on social media so I decided to take the plunge and watch it. Based on a shocking true story, The Mauritanian tells the story of the false imprisonment of Mohamedou Ould Slahi by the American government. Jodie Foster plays the lawyer who takes on the case to prove his innocence.

We have seen a similar plot in a thousand movies but this was a frightening watch. I was hoping it wasn’t gonna be another film with the Americans being made out to be heroes defending freedom and it wasn’t. I am not familiar with the true story but the film came across as factual and truthful.

The performances were great all-round but without a doubt, it was Tamir Rahim that held the torch in The Mauritanian.

Well, that’s it for this list of newly released films on Amazon Prime Video. As always, thanks for reading.

Trailer + Poster For Irish Vampire Comedy

We always need new vampire movies in our lives. Luckily for us, we have a new vampire comedy from Ireland – The Boys From County Hell.

I have been hearing great things about The Boys From County Hell. Being from Ireland myself, I should have had this covered a long time ago. I remember seeing it at festivals that I couldn’t commit to cover this year. That was a shame but hey, better late than never, right?

The title of the movie is also the name of a Shane MacGowan song he recorded with The Pogues. I bet ya when Macgowan wrote those lyrics, he didn’t think the title would be used for a vampire movie set in the futuristic year of 2021.

Chris Baugh directed and co-wrote with Brendan Mullin the brilliant Northern Irish film Bad Day For The Cut. If you haven’t checked out Bad Day For The Cut then please do!. It is great, and it is on Netflix.

Now, back to the vampires.

Shudder has acquired the rights to Chris Baugh’s Irish vampire comedy, The Boys From County Hell. Check out the press release, trailer and poster below

Shudder Logo - Moviehooker

Strange events unfold in Six Mile Hill – a sleepy Irish town that claims to have been travelled by the famed author Bram Stoker. When construction on a new road disrupts the alleged grave of Abhartach, a legendary Irish vampire said to have inspired Dracula. Deadly and sinister forces terrorize the work crew. Led by Francie Moffat and his son Eugene, a free-spirited young man who prefers pints to pickaxes, and they’re forced to fight to survive the night while exposing the true horror that resides in the town’s local myth. 

The Boys From County Hell poster

Starring Jack Rowan (Peaky Blinders), Nigel O’Neill (The Bookshop), Louisa Harland (Derry Girls), Fra Fee (Animals, the upcoming Hawkeye series) and John Lynch (The Terror, The Banishing) and Michael Hough (the upcoming Chapelwaite series).

Upcoming Horror/Sci-Fi Releases To Watch Out For

We are back again with a brand new list for you. This time focusing on Upcoming Horror & Sci-Fi Movies releasing soon.

2021 is looking to be fantastic year for genre releases. Yesterday I published 4 new werewolf flicks that have recently been released or are releasing soon. Now, I can continue with a new list of upcoming horror releases. I hope you enjoy it and find some films that you can look forward to in the near future.

IN THE EARTH

Upcoming Horror Releases To Watch Out For – In The Earth

Ben Wheatley (Kill List, Free Fire, Sightseers) is back with a micro-budget horror movie shot during the pandemic.

Not a lot is known about the plot but focuses on a woman getting lost in a forest with the woods coming to life around her.

Wheatley has been attached to direct the sequel to The Meg, the follow-up to the Jason Statham and Rainn Wilson killer shark flick!. I am so looking forward to seeing what he can do with a Meg sequel. I am sure Mr Wheatley can do a great job. But what he can do, and what he is allowed to do is two very different things.

THE SPINE OF THE NIGHT

Upcoming Releases To Watch Out For – The Spine of the Night

Who is up for some ultra-violent animation inspired by the work of Conan the Barbarian creators? The Spine of the Night gives us just that. A dark fantasy epic full of insane violence featuring necromancers and winged assassins!

SOUND OF VIOLENCE

Upcoming Releases To Watch Out For – The Sound Of Violence

A deaf woman who regains her hearing in the most unfortunate way ever: during the brutal murder of her family. She becomes obsessed with creating new sounds with vicious violence and human flesh after learning that she might be losing her hearing again.

What? This sounds unique and macabre af. I wonder what human flesh sounds like? I can’t wait to find out.

THE ARBORS

Upcoming Releases To Watch Out For -The Arbos

The Arbors has been described as a Lovecraftian sci-fi thriller. I have read some reviews and to be honest, they ain’t been that positive. I am still intrigued though, I am a fan of slow-burn sci-fi but maybe this was just a little slow for some.

There was a flick called Possum that was released a couple of years ago. It took an awful thrashing, but personally, I loved it – it was atmospheric, unnerving and creepy AF!. So yeah, bring on The Arbors

Set in a small town, a recluse locksmith finds a small creature in his house that slowly starts to grow revealing it’s terrifying true form.

MACABRO

Upcoming Releases To Watch Out For – Macabro

Another film listed as released in 2019 but it is slowly making its way to us. Macabro sounds like my sort of flick. It is inspired by the real-life murders of the necrophilic brothers of Nova Friburgo. Two brothers were accused of a string of brutal murders in the late 90s’in Brazil.

It is backed and produced by the producers of the fantastic Wagner Moura starring Elite Squad

GAIA

Upcoming Horror Releases To Watch Out For – Gaia

Directed by Jaco Bouwer and stars Monique Rockman, Carel Nel, Alex van Dyk and Anthony Oseyemi.

A park ranger encounters a father and son living a post-apocalyptic lifestyle in the woods. They have detached from society, have their own rules and their own religion. After their cabin gets attacked by strange human-like beings, she realises that there is a dangerous truth to the father and son’s apocalyptic existence.

CENSOR

Upcoming Horror Releases 2021
Upcoming Horror Releases to watch out for – Censor

From what I am reading, Prano Bailey-Bond’s directorial debut, Censor is going to be one of the greats. I have read nothing but great things about it. A British horror described as both intelligent and disturbing.

The story is about a mysterious video cassette (yay!) that communicates directly with a woman about her sister’s unexplained disappearance.

BROADCAST SIGNAL INTRUSION

Another one that features some sort of evil VHS tapes. A video archivist comes across a series of dark and doomy pirate recordings and becomes obsessed when trying to find out the horrid truth behind them.

Directed by Jacob Gentry
Written by Phil DrinkwaterTim Woodall
Starring Anthony E. CabralRichard CotovskyJeff Dlugolecki |

WOODLANDS DARK AND DAYS BEWITCHED: A HISTORY OF FOLK HORROR

The last one on the list is a documentary that explores the history of cinematic folk horror. Hey, maybe not for everyone but I love the genre and the real-life tales of madness that comes with folk horror.

This documentary has a staggering runtime of 193mins. That’s 3-hours of pure cinematic folk horror knowledge. Sign me up!

That’s it for this list. Make sure to check back soon to get hooked up with more movie and tv recommends. As always, thanks for reading.

Nic Cage VS demonic animatronics

After defeating an alien threat using Jiu-Jitsu Nic Cage is back to fight demonic animatronics in Willy’s Wonderland

Back with a freshly dyed beard, Nic Cage must battle a load of demonic animatronics after getting the janitorial job from hell in an abandoned amusement park.

If you don’t take Willy’s Wonderland seriously, I think there could be a lot to enjoy about it. Willy’s Wonderland looks like a lot of fun and pays homage classic killer doll flicks like Demonic Toys, Puppet Master and of course Child’s Play. I grew up on those movies and have so much respect for them. In a way, it was those films that paved my way into a life and love for horror. Will it be scary? I am gonna say absolutely not! but that don’t mean we won’t enjoy it for its silliness.

Nic Cage seems to have found his niche market by releasing crazy indie features. The Colour Out Of Space and Mandy and have set the bar high for Cage. I totally get why some people wouldn’t be a fan but personally, I am enjoying all of the ridiculously weird and wonderful roles he is choosing.

Willy’s Wonderland is directed by Kevin Lewis and written by G.O. Parsons. It is due for release on February 12th. I am not sure about which platform it will be released on but I am guessing it will be the usual VOD platforms.

OFFICIAL PLOT (IMDb)

A quiet drifter is tricked into a janitorial job at the now condemned Wally’s Wonderland. The mundane tasks suddenly become an all-out fight for survival against wave after wave of demonic animatronics. Fists fly, kicks land, titans clash — and only one side will make it out alive.

Enjoy the trailer

As always, thanks for reading.

Nerdist

The sins of the past come back with a vengeance in this new film from two of Indonesia’s modern masters of horror, director Kimo Stamboel (HEADSHOT) and writer Joko Anwar (SATAN’S SLAVES, IMPETIGORE).

 A family travels to the distant, rural orphanage where the father was raised to pay their respects to the facility’s gravely ill director. But his and his best friends’ homecoming turns into a terrifying supernatural ordeal that threatens their and their families’ lives: someone is using dark magic to avenge evil deeds, long-buried but not forgotten. Stamboel’s film is a reimagining of the 1981 Indonesian horror classic of the same name.

Drawn from a script penned by Joko Anwar, whose own most recent feature, the 2019 Sundance selection IMPETIGORE, has been named Indonesia’s entry for the Best International Feature Film at the 93rd Academy Awards.

An exciting new addition to the ranks of modern Indonesian horror and a disturbingly dark reboot of the 1981 witchcraft film by the same name, THE QUEEN OF BLACK MAGIC promises visceral body horror, tormented folklore, and an inescapable past.

Hunted Hits Shudder on Jan 14th – Check Out Our Review!

Hunted marks director Vincent Paronnaud’s debut into live-action feature films.

He is best known for the remarkable Belgian coming of age animated feature, Persepolis. Hunted couldn’t be further from his award-winning animated feature. It is co-written by Léa Pernollet.

A solid cat and mouse fast-paced thriller, Hunted takes inspiration from the world of fairytales. To be more precise, Little Red Riding Hood or the horror reimagining, Company of Wolves. Only our villain ain’t a snarling wolf – he’s human but we see a ferocious beast-like transformation take place. Sometimes, humans are more to fear than monsters

HUNTED – WHAT’S IT ABOUT ?

Under pressure from a failing construction job, Eve (Lucie Debay) hits the local pub for some drinks to unwind and relax. After a brief encounter with a local sleaze, she is rescued by a mysterious local (Arieh Worthalter). Eve thinks that her night is about to change…it is. Before we know it, Eve is kidnapped by her once-charming hero and his clueless accomplice (Ciaran O’Brien). She is thrown into the boot of a car and then released into the woods to be hunted and killed.

OVERALL

While Hunted doesn’t offer us up much originality in this sub-genre it is a beautiful and often brutal film. Is it extreme? well, that depends on how extreme you like your movies. It is simplistic and very effective and shot beautifully. Our lead characters are both two-sided and it is super-fun to watch that transition take place. From charming hero to psychopathic killer and from scared prey to a badass savage warrior!

HUNTED premieres on Shudder January 14th in the U.S., Canada, U.K., Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand 

You can check out the trailer below. I hope you enjoy.

As always, thanks for reading.

10 Must See Found Footage Films

A list of ten must-see Found Footage Movies accompanied by Youtube Video

10 Must See Found Footage Films – YouTube Vid – Check it out, Like & subscribe for more content!

We are back again with another list. I know, if you’re a fan of the Found Footage sub-genre then a lot of these titles would be obvious. But I am hoping that even the most hardcore of fans will find at least one film in here they ain’t heard of.

REC

An unknown virus breaks out in a central Barcelona apartment complex. A local documentary crew, firefighters and residents must fight the infected and find a way out of the quarantined building.

AFFLICTED

Two best friends decide to vlog their planned trip around the world. After a dodgy sexual encounter with a strange female, one of the friends starts to notice bizarre changes in his body.

DIARY OF THE DEAD

George A Romero’s Diary of the Dead got a lot of shit when it was released. Yeah, it is not without its faults but if you’re a found-footage freak like us, then this is one hell of a good flick.

Usual zombie shenanigans we see with Romero movies…or pretty much any zombie film. A group of amateur filmmakers find themselves thrown into a real-life horror movie when the dead return to life and attack the living.

THE TAKING OF DEBORAH LOGAN

This is a terrifying film. Not only is The Taking Of Deborah Logan a brilliant horror movie, but it is also a harrowing, heartbreaking and realistic look at the effects of someone suffering from a degenerative disease like Alzheimer’s or dementia.

A group of filmmakers document the life of Deborah Logan as she battles with a rapidly spreading infectious degenerative disease.

CREEP

Creep is one of those movies that is so simplistic, it is brilliant. Again, I can understand why some people wouldn’t like it but I really enjoyed this one…and its sequel too.

A strapped-for-cash YouTuber answers an advert and almost immediately regrets his decision when his new “Friend” is a borderline psychopath.

HELL HOUSE LLC

I was late to the game with Hell House LLC. The hype is real with this one as it offers some genuinely unsettling scenes.

A group of friends start to die or disappear on the opening night of their horror-themed haunted house.

Hell House spawned two sequels. The second one is quite good and a continuation of the events of the first. But due to the shitty reviews, I have yet to check out the third part.

THE BAY

The Bay is another found-footage film that had a lot of mixed reviews. Personally, I think it is one of the strongest FF flicks out there.

Chaos and mayhem break out in a small coastal town when its residents start to get infected with an unknown virus.

MAN BITES DOG

Before the Blair Witch Project but after Cannibal Holocaust, we were blessed with Man Bites Dog. A Belgian serial killer comedy made as part of a film project for film students.

Shot in “cheap” black & white, Man Bites Dog is about a serial killer with a fetish for killing postmen and dwarves. A film crew follows him and documents his every kill.

TROLL HUNTER

Troll Hunter is a super-fun fantasy movie steeped in Norwegian folklore. A group of filmmakers follow a TrollHunter around Norway as he battles and captures trooooooollllllllllls!

THE UPPER FOOTAGE

The Upper Footage is one I am hoping you guys ain’t seen. A group of friends experience a real-life nightmare when trying to score cocaine. Written and directed by Justin Cole

That’s it for this list. We hope you enjoyed it. As always, thanks for reading.
