Free, ad-supported service Tubi set to launch in Oz

Streaming service Tubi launches in Australia on September 1, initially offering nearly 7,000 movies and TV series for free for anyone who is prepared to watch 2-4 minutes of ads per hour.

Australia is the Us-owned VOD platform’s first market outside North America. Tubi CEO Farhad Massoudi tells If he chose Australia because it has among the highest penetration rates of Netflix subscribers outside the Us and is a mature advertising market.

The San Francisco-based company has secured Australian rights to a raft of movies including 3:10 to Yuma, The Blair Witch Project, Kickboxer and Stranger Than Fiction, with such titles as Dirty Dancing, The Grudge, Requiem for a Dream, Reservoir Dogs, Saw, Traffic and Young Guns to roll out over the next six months.

How ‘The Terror: Infamy’ Draws on Japanese Ghost Stories to Depict Real Historical Atrocities

  • The Wrap
The second season of AMC’s horror anthology “The Terror” centers a story rarely told in the American mainstream — the mass incarceration of Japanese-Americans during World War II. But for many of those involved with the show, the story is a personal one.

“I’ve done a few other projects that have taken place in the internment camps,” said “Greek” alum Derek Mio, who stars in “The Terror: Infamy” as Chester Nakayama, a young man whose family is uprooted and imprisoned along with 120,000 other people of Japanese ancestry. “But it was just kind of chilling to see the parallels between the character and my grandfather.”

The series uses Southern California’s Terminal Island — Mio’s grandfather’s actual hometown — and the once-thriving Japanese immigrant community there as its entry point. A particularly emotional scene in the first episode sees Chester’s father being forcibly taken by the FBI for questioning,

Fantasia 2019: ‘Stare’ Review

  • Nerdly
Stars: Marie Iitoyo, Yu Inaba, Shota Sometani | Written and Directed by Hirotaka Adachi

The first film I watched from this year’s Fantasia Festival was a J-Horror sequel in the form of Sadako. My latest viewing is a movie that is heavily influenced by the best crop of J-horror in the late nineties and early two thousands, Stare.

In the same style as those J-Horror movies, we follow a couple of friends who are linked through some gruesome and surprising deaths. People’s eyeballs are exploding from them and autopsies are showing that the victims had heart attacks. But even when the murdered had someone standing right next to them at the point of death, no-one is exactly sure how they are happening. But we join a few main characters who start to investigate the deaths.

Stare wears its obvious influences on its sleeve. There’s no hiding the fact

‘Sadako’ Review: Dir. Hideo Nakata (2019) [Fantasia 2019]

© 2019 “Sadako” Film Partner

With sequels, prequels, remakes, TV series, and even a crossover film where she was pitted against her fellow Scream Queen, Kayako from The Grudge franchise, Sadako has now graced over 11 feature films in one way or another since the 1998 classic. That’s quite a stretch considering the simple premise: the spirit of a young psychic girl creates eerie videos that kill the viewer a week after watching. The original Ringu hit at the perfect time. It was the early days of the internet, mobile phones, and before social media. It meant the way in which the urban legend travelled and evolved was slower and more sinister. Much like the film itself. In an attempt to bring back the magic of the original feature, Hideo Nakata, returns to the directing chair. Despite creating a couple of J-Horror classics, both based on the writing of Koji Suzuki, Nakata has

That Stupid Momo Challenge Viral Hoax Is Getting a Horror Film

I’m sure you all remember that Momo Challenge viral hoax that spread across the internet like wildfire. Well, Orion Pictures is teaming up with Vertigo Entertainment to turn the stupid hoax into a horror film franchise with producers Roy Lee (It) and Taka Ichise (The Grudge and The Ring).

The whole thing started with a sculpture created by Japanese artist Keisuke Aisawa back in 2016. It was on display at a gallery exhibit in Tokyo at the time and is actually called “Mother Bird.” The creepy and bizarre sculpture was then used by pranksters to start spreading rumors online about Momo’s Challenge, and how children and adolescents were being enticed by a user named Momo to perform a series of dangerous tasks including violent attacks, self-harm, and suicide.

‘Momo Challenge’ Hoax to Become Horror Film From ‘The Grudge’ Producer

The Momo Challenge may have been a viral, Internet hoax, but the premise of the Momo Challenge will now be adapted into a horror movie.

Orion Pictures is partnering with Roy Lee’s Vertigo Entertainment and producer Taka Ichise, who previously collaborated on “The Grudge” and “The Ring,” to develop a horror film that’s based on the work of art that inspired the viral Momo Challenge, an individual with knowledge of the project told TheWrap.

Exclusive: Momo is ready for her close-up. Orion Pictures is partnering with Roy Lee’s Vertigo Entertainment and producer Taka Ichise to develop a horror film based on the creepy sculpture now known globally as Momo thanks to the viral hoax called Momo’s Challenge.
