Selene Returns in Underworld: Blood Wars Trailer

Well, fans of the Underworld franchise will be more than blood thirsty when they see the new trailer for the upcoming Underworld: Blood Wars, as Kate Beckinsale storms back onto the screen as Selene.  After 2009’s Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, from which Beckinsale was absent, and what some felt was mediocre outing, Underworld: Awakening in 2012 the return of Selene  and a fresh new Underworld film offers promise and possibly even redemption in some fans eyes.

Underworld: Blood Wars, which is directed by Anna Foerster shows the return of Selene, who will once again fight to stop the brutal war between lycans and vampires.  The franchise has always provided some outstanding werewolf FX.  From the looks of the trailer, the new installment will be no different, and seems to provide even more action and bloodshed than previous.  With new players on the hunt and Selene with nothing left to lose, it appears as though we can expect many twists and turns in the story line as well. read more

Rob Zombie’s 31 Review: Trick or Treat?

In the Q and A following the Fathom Events screening of Rob Zombie’s latest horror film 31, he revealed that the genesis of the story sprang from his frustration in trying to get his hockey film Broadstreet Bullies off the ground.  He recalled a phone conversation where he told the person on the other end of the receiver that he could “make up a movie in five seconds” that would be easier to make than the one he was currently working on.   It would be the “dumbest thing” and “easy to sell”.  Unfortunately, Zombie’s analysis couldn’t be more true; 31 is a half-baked, rushed production that is both cheap and “dumb”. read more
