DVD Review – Jackals (2017)

Jackals, 2017.

Directed by Kevin Greutert.

Starring Stephen Dorff, Johnathon Schaech, Deborah Kara Unger, Chelsea Ricketts, Nick Roux, and Jason Scott Jenkins.

Synopsis:

A family tries to deprogram their estranged son from a satanic cult while the disgruntled cultists surround the family’s property.

Home invasion movies have become increasingly popular over the past decade since Bryan Bertino’s 2008 film The Strangers became a hit and pushed what was a subsidiary of the slasher movie into a sub-genre all of its own. However, as The Strangers was pretty much the first and last word on home invasion movies, trying to move the genre forward or offer a fresh take on what is often very limiting material has proved to be fairly fruitless.

Well, fairly fruitless as one or two get through the cracks – You’re Next being an obvious one – but overall the idea of people on the outside of a

Johnathon Schaech Joins Hunt, Armas, and Leguizamo in The Night Clerk

Last week we let you guys know that writer-director Michael Cristofer’s new horror-thriller The Night Clerk had cast Helen Hunt (Twister), Ana de Armas (Blade Runner 2049), and John Leguizamo (Super Mario Bros.). And today we have word that Day of the Dead: Bloodline star Johnathon Schaech has joined the cast as well. The impressive […]

DVD Review – Acts of Vengeance (2017)

Acts of Vengeance, 2017.

Directed by Isaac Florentine.

Starring Antonio Banderas, Karl Urban, Paz Vega, Cristina Serafini, Lillian Blankenship, Clint Dyer, and Robert Forster.

Synopsis:

A lawyer takes a vow of silence as he goes on the hunt for whoever killed his wife and daughter.

Now that Liam Neeson has stepped back from the revenge/action thriller that was getting a bit repetitive, Antonio Banderas (Desperado/Interview with the Vampire) has stepped up and is seemingly taking the direct-to-dvd market by storm with titles like Security and Bullet Head providing some exciting but ultimately forgettable viewing experiences. And now you can add Acts of Vengeance to that growing catalogue, although the calibre of this one appears – on the surface at least – to be a little higher than your average Asda impulse buy DVD.

Frank Valera (Banderas) is a fast-talking defence lawyer who has a good record in getting guilty scumbags off the hook.

New trailer for zombie remake Day of the Dead: Bloodline

Ahead of its release next month, Lionsgate has released a new trailer for the upcoming zombie remake Day of the Dead: Bloodline, a retelling of George A.

Five years after an epidemic nearly wiped out the world’s population, Dr. Zoe Parker lives in an underground bunker among a small group of military personnel and survivalists, working on a cure while fighting armies of the undead. When a dangerous patient from Zoe’s past infiltrates the bunker, he just might hold the key to saving humanity . . . or ending it.

Day Of The Dead: Bloodline Blu-Ray Release Date Revealed

As is the case with any genre or subgenre, the key to allowing it to live on is to examine it from different perspectives and hopefully break some new ground. For the past fifteen years or so, zombies – and, to a lesser extent, vampires that sparkle – have been all the rage. But after digesting them in countless movies, video games and TV shows, even this longtime Resident Evil fan has admittedly experienced fatigue.

Of course, none of this would’ve been possible if George Romero didn’t pave the way back in 1968 with Night of the Living Dead. In the time since, he’d concocted several beloved sequels, each of which infused social commentary with unimaginable horror. That being said, it’s no wonder why the late director is still able to make new fans to this day.

Now, I’m not sure if there’s a record for such

‘Day of the Dead: Bloodline’ Unleashes a Stalker Zombie in an Exclusive New Clip

Today, we're happy to debut an exclusive clip from Day of the Dead: Bloodline, the new zombie yarn from director Hèctor Hernández Vicens (The Corpse of Anna Fritz) inspired by George A. Romero's 1985 zombie classic Day of the Dead. But if Bub was a lovable little flesh-eater, Bloodline has a different kind of domesticated zombie in store. Written by Mark Tonderai and Lars Jacobson, the film stars Sophie Skelton (Outlander) as Zoe, an former epidemiology student surviving the zombie apocalypse in a survivalist military compound when a supply run reunites her with Max (Jonathon …

Day Of The Dead: Bloodline Review

Remember how in 2008 we all thought a Day Of The Dead remake co-starring Nick Cannon was the lowest low? Well, sorry 2016 us – it’s only gotten worse. Hèctor Hernández Vicens’ Day Of The Dead: Bloodline is – against all odds – an even more ill-advised rehashing than Steve Miner’s. How? Hold on, let me unravel the mile-long scroll of notes I scribbled…ah. How about digitally abhorrent CGI scars and blood splatters? Horrendous Adr that starts the film with mismatched voices to mouths? Angled camera shots of half-empty rooms – like, who watched 1985’s Day Of The Dead and decided it needed more rape? If you’re going to remake history, there better be a good reason – case and point.

Sophie Skelton stars as Zoe Parker, a med student whose graduation is put on hold when the zombie apocalypse hits. She escapes Whittendale University Medical Center and ends up at High Rock

Interview: Director Hèctor Hernández Vicens on the Symbolism & Style of Day Of The Dead: Bloodline

  • DailyDead
He took us into the morgue with The Corpse of Anna Fritz, and for his second feature film, Hèctor Hernández Vicens aims a morbid lens at a world gone mad in Day of the Dead: Bloodline. With the reimagining of George A. Romero's Day of the Dead coming out to theaters, VOD, and Digital HD beginning January 5th from Saban Films, Daily Dead recently spoke with lead actress Sophie Skelton, and we also had the pleasure of talking with Hèctor about the movie's twisted love story, paying homage to Romero's work while still telling a different tale, and incorporating symbolism into the living dead narrative.

Thank you for taking the time to talk about Day of the Dead: Bloodline, Hèctor. This movie is based on a beloved film by George A. Romero. Coming off your previous film, The Corpse of Anna Fritz, which I think a lot of horror fans really enjoyed,

One Curious Zombie Leaps To The Rescue In New Day Of The Dead: Bloodline Clip

A twisted, cold-hearted monster features in this newly-released clip for Day of the Dead: Bloodline – and we’re not referring to the undead.

In fact, it’s a reanimated zombie that winds up saving the day, as Sophie Skelton’s heroine comes face-to-face with a sexual harasser (John Schaech) named Max. What follows is an unnerving exchange between Skelton and Schaech’s respective survivors, before the latter makes an unwanted advance.

Whether intentional or not, this Bloodline clip, one which arrives on the eve or release, appears to be ripped straight from the headlines, with the only difference being that a flesh-munching zombie arrives just in time to thwart an attempted rape. Because who said the undead always have to be portrayed as the bad guys?

Story-wise, Day of the Dead: Bloodline takes place in a “post-apocalyptic, zombie-filled world where a former med school student is tormented by a dark figure from her past.
