I, Frankenstein

The is the first movie trailer of I, Frankenstein, a big screen adaptation of an unpublished graphic novel of the same title by Kevin Grevioux.

For those that imagine Frankenstein as the slow, lumbering brute of the classic novel, you’re in for a surprise, because in this movie, he is like Blade the vampire hunter — fast, agile, gracile and intelligible. This is a full-out action thriller.

Set 200 years after his creation, Victor Frankenstein’s creation, Adam, still walks the earth, alone. He soon finds himself in the middle of a war over the fate of humanity and discovers that he holds the key that could destroy humankind.

Directed by Stuart Beattie, I, Frankenstein features Aaron Eckhart as Adam, Aden Young as Victor Frankenstein, Bill Nighy, Yvonne Strahovski, Miranda Otto, and Jai Courtney. You can watch on January 24, 2014.

Prometheus Franchise Will Eventually Combine With Aliens

Published

Prometheus

Director Ridley Scott has revealed some strange but exciting news: Apparently, the Prometheus films will eventually tie-in with the Alien saga but not until at least one or even two more standalone movies are made.

And here we thought Prometheus wasn’t going to get a sequel… In the interview with Germany’s FilmFutter, Scott said:

Yes [it will connect to Alien], but it won’t be in the next one. It will be in the one after this one or maybe even a fourth film before we get back into the Alien franchise… The whole point of it is to explain the Alien franchise and to explain the how and why of the creation of the Alien itself. I always thought of the Alien as kind of a piece of bacterial warfare. I always thought that that original ship, which I call the Croissant, was a battleship, holding these biomechanoid creatures that were all about destruction.

The first Prometheus film was originally intended to be the fifth installment in the Aliens franchise. Do you think it’s smart for the two franchises to come together?

Set to release in May 2017, Prometheus 2 will star Michael Fassbender and Noomi Rapace. Make sure to stay tuned to MovieTribute for more movie and TV news.

The Babadook

If you’re in the mood for a scary movie, then you might want to check out The Babadook. The trailer featured here offers a scary taste of what the Australian horror flick has in store for you.

The Babadook follows Amelia, a single mother who after the violent death of her husband struggles to discipline her “out-of-control” six-year-old son Samuel. Samuel’s dreams are plagued by a monster he believes wants to kill them both. When he discovers a sinister picture book called Mister Babadook — the creature in his dreams — lurking in the house, Amelia finds herself losing her grip on reality as she begins seeing glimpses of the creature.

Despite her initial protestations that “it’s just a book,” she slowly comes to the realization that Mr. Babadook may very well be real.

To see how terrifying the trailer is, just watch the trailer:

Directed by Jennifer Kent and co-staring Essie Davis and Daniel Henshall, The Babadook is already available for viewing in Australia.

Review: Dead Snow Has Every Horror Movie Cliche. It’s Funny!

Published

Dead Snow Nazi Zombie

You and a group of friends will enjoy Dead Snow’ take on the horror comedy genre so long as you don’t take the movie seriously.

I would typically never ever watch something like Dead Snow, but my friend and I are horror movie fanatics. She told me it was awesome, so I was obliged to give it a shot. Despite being a hardcore horror movie fan, I am not fond of the zombie genre. Even so, I was pleasantly surprise by what I saw. You have to love the Swedes for putting this little gem of a zombie flick together.

The story begins as most other horror films start: A group of 20 something friends (they are medical students) drive into the woods to a cabin way out past even the boonies. And guess what? There is no cell reception. The group makes the best of it by snowboarding, skiing, and just have a great time. I counted at least 6 clichés in the first half hour.

At nighttime, around dinner, a stranger arrives on their doorstep. He sits around with the group talking and sharing. He starts to share a story of how Germany invaded the area during World Word War II and ran things until the disturbed locals kicked them out. Before leaving them to their merry fun, the stranger warns the group that an evil presence still lurks in the area. Something about some gold coins unleashing an evil curse. As you would expect, they just “happen” to stumble upon them, unleashing some pretty gnarly Nazi zombies.

All things go straight to hell from there, literally speaking. There are people disappearing left and right. You have Nazi zombies versus dumb, but entertaining 20 something med students. This movie is to be watched and not taken seriously. There are lots of bloods, guts, carnage, some tits and some guy hanging from Nazi zombie intestines over a cliff. The action scenes are very well done.

It has all the elements of a boring, predictable horror movie, but for some reason I couldn’t stop watching. I wonder how the Swedish horror fans felt about this after the release of the critically acclaimed Let The Right One In. Hell, that movie was so good we (Americans) even made our own version of it.

7/10 Dead Snow had almost every horror movie cliché you can think of but doesn’t pretend to be some kind of high brow horror comedy. It has a certain X-factor that I can’t put my finger on. It deserves a 7 out of 10, a rating that may have been higher had there not been one cliché was missing — token black person! But then again, there aren’t many blacks in Sweden. Regardless, this is one movie I would recommend to any horror movie fan.
