…and things really seem to be looking up for our intrepid group.

No, really: Daisies and moonbeams and gumdrops and rainbows. Peace at last for the survivors. No more Walkers. No more dying…

 

PSYCH!

SHORT FILM: ‘Cargo’ (2013) – Dark, poignant zombie tale

This short was a finalist at the February 2013 Tropfest Australia, billed as “The world’s largest short film festival.” Without a single word of dialogue, it tells its story simply, coherently – and to devastating effect. WARNING: You may shed a tear at this one, folks.

The official description:

Stranded in the midst of a zombie apocalypse, a man sets in motion an unlikely plan to protect the precious cargo he carries: his infant daughter.

Directed by Ben Howling & Yolanda Ramke. Produced by Ben Howling, Yolanda Ramke, Marcus Newman, and Daniel Foeldes. More info on the directors may be found here, and its official IMDB entry is here.

TRAILER: First taste of Soska Sisters-directed ‘See No Evil 2′

This is the first trailer for the sequel to the 2006 original. This time, the inimitable Soska Sisters (American Mary) direct. The WWE’s Glenn Jacobs (AKA ‘Kane’) returns as murderous Jacob Goodnight, rising from the dead in a morgue to terrorize a group of medical students – who look to be having some sort of party down there, because reasons. American Mary star Katherine Isabelle also co-stars. No release date has been announced, other than the frustratingly vague “2014.”

What do you think? Ready for some creepy morgue-based gore? The “Twisted Twins” really delivered with American Mary. We’re confident this one will deliver the goods, as well.

People with the name “Michael King” may well find themselves asking “Wait, what the Hell is going on now?” when the new horror film The Possession of Michael King is released in August. As it happens, that would be an entirely appropriate question to raise.

3D on a shoestring: Six-minute thriller ‘Black Spot’ from Luther Bhogal-Jones

Poster still for budget 3D short 'Black Spot'What can you do with a £28 3D camcorder (just slightly larger than a Blackberry), coupled with healthy portions of both imagination and determination? Check it out for yourself here.

British writer/director Luther Bhogal-Jones shot Black Spot on the aforementioned camcorder in a single day, contending with the camera’s unpredictable battery life and inclement weather in the form of rain showers. Additional footage was shot a few months later in a London flat for the flashback sequence.

“I’ve always had a love of 3D films,” said Jones, “Even though they’re tarnished with being gimmicky. The red/cyan 3D imagery is such an iconic image from cinema’s history – as well as related so closely with the world of horror and sci-fi – and I’ve always wanted to make a film with that classic look.”

So what’s the film about? Here’s a brief summary:

“Paul is stranded on a lonely country road when his car fails to start. He walks through a melancholic landscape of missing person posters and floral tributes to roadside deaths, before chancing upon another car, but one which ironically is also broken down. Not only will this car provide Paul with salvation and suffering, but force him to face his own recent past actions and a provide him with a potential chance to redeem himself…”

You’ll find three versions of the film on the page linked above: a 3D version requiring the venerable red/cyan glasses (surely you have a pair lying around); a stereoscopic 3D version formatted for 3D televisions; and a two-dimensional version for everyone else. But Jones urges viewers to try to watch it in 3D, since that was kind of the whole point in making the film.
