Trailer: Morgan (2016)

morgan-movie

As our technology evolves so does our boldness. We assume we can control it when he give it a mind of it’s own. And we assume wrong.

Morgan is an artificial human who begins baffling the scientists who created her. She is evolving quickly, and they are losing control, or rather they are losing control of her. When risk management becomes involved to assess whether Morgan and her program should be terminated Morgan takes matters into her own hands.

 

Morgan is the directorial debut of Luke Scott, Ridley Scott‘s son. And based on the trailer alone? It looks like it will be a terrifyingly enjoyable film. Rose Leslie, Kate Mera, Paul Giamatti, Toby Jones and Anya Taylor-Joy star in Morgan, set to hit theaters this September.

Tales of Dracula (2015)

tales of dracula

There is something nostalgically romantic about black and white horror films. It brings us back to a time when horror was relayed through shadows, through sounds and through the shock of practical effects make up. There have been several modern films which have tried to capture the same essence Universal was once the master of. The most recent is Tales of Dracula, a 2015 independent film Joe DeMuro. Over the course of two years and with a budget of 20,000 the team behind Tales of Dracula worked tirelessly to replicate the essence of classic horror,  and they did a pretty decent job at it.

tales-of-draculaThe story begins with Creighton Reed (Tom Delillo) on a quest to find Dr. Frankenstein, the one person he believes who can cure him of his…hairy illness. On his way he meets a distraught father whose missing daughter has been found, bleeding from the neck. Together they venture to the home of Dr. Victoria Frankenstein, Henry Frankenstein’s granddaughter to seek aid. Victoria agrees to help, but not out of the goodness of her heart. Rather she uses the the bitten maiden’s blood to inject into Frankenstein’s Monster, finally awakening him after all these years. And Dracula? Is enraged that his essence now resides inside and abomination, and plans his revenge. tales-of-dracula-wolfman

Despite a few plot holes and rough scene transitions/dialogue which I can only assume were due to editing and budget constraints, the story behind Tales of Dracula is very reminiscent of Frankenstein Meets The Wolfman. Ron Chamberlain was behind the practical effects makeup in this film and absolutely blew me away on what he was able to create on such a low budget. Both the Monster and the Wolfman were incredibly well done and a great homage to classic horror. The films biggest weakness was in the end, the acting. While Wayne W. Johnson played the role of Dracula quite well, I was nearly distracted the entire time by Courtney Bennett (Dr. Victoria Frankenstein) who just didn’t seem passionate about her role and felt more forced than anything.

For a low budget independent film, Tales of Dracula is a wonderful homage to horror movies past. Fans of more modern slasher horror should pass on catching this one, but those who appreciate the more slower pace of haunting classics and don’t mind the short comings that accompany low budget films should certainly give Tales of Dracula a try.

ALRIGHT YOU PRIMITIVE SCREW HEADS LISTEN UP.

 Space Ghost Productions is launching a kick starter soon for the first official Evil Dead 2 board game. That’s right – an official tile and figure based survival game that every Evil Dead fan is going to want to own. Check out the press release below –

The campaign offers a standard and deluxe edition for donors to select from. Featuring at least 8 custom figures and art depicting the terrifying and iconic characters, monsters, and locales from the film, the official Evil Dead 2 Board Game is the tabletop experience for Evil Dead 2 fans. 2-6 players will work together in 60–90 minute sessions to gather pages of the Ex-Mortis while trying to survive demon attacks, supernatural events, and avoid turning into evil deadites themselves.

“Evil Dead is such a great world to work in. Making a brutal survival horror game filled with jokes and exciting gameplay just came naturally,” Evil Dead 2 Board Game Designer Taylor Smith said. “It’s a cooperative game with a twist: Players can turn evil and go after their former allies, who then have to decide to save their Deadite friends or put them down for good and carry on with the mission.”The deluxe edition features exclusive figures of Ash Williams, Deadite Henrietta, and a box based on the Necronomicon Ex-Mortis, the Book of the Dead. More figures and features will be added as the campaign goes on, a well as retailer pledge levels. Six lucky fans will also get a chance to get their likeness drawn into either the game or a future Evil Dead 2 comic book.
