HARBINGER DOWN | © 2015 Vertical Entertainment

Cast: Lance Henriksen, Camille Balsamo, Matt Winston, Giovonnie Samuels, Winston James Francis, Mick Ignis, Michael Estime Writer: Alec Gillis Director: Alec Gillis Distributor: Vertical Entertainment Release Date: August 7, 2015 HARBINGER DOWN is a pretty blatant rip-off of the John Carpenter classic THE THING. However, the people who made the film – on the back of a successful Kickstarter campaign combined with funds from their own pockets – make clear that’s what they were going for in a homage to not just THE THING but also other science fiction monster movies from the 80s including LEVIATHAN and even a bit […]Read On »

VOD Review: HOOKED UP

HOOKED UP | © 2015 Uncork'd Entertainment

Rating: Not Rated Cast: Jonah Ehrenreich, Stephen Ohl, Julia Molins, Natascha Wiese Writer: Pablo Larcuen, Eduard Sola Director: Pablo Larcuen Distributor: Uncork’d Entertainment Release Date: April 7, 2015 HOOKED UP proudly embraces the fact that the entire movie was shot using an iPhone. While this probably is bragging rights in some circles, I’m not sure if you should be proud of the achievement. Do many people rent video-on-demand features with the intention of seeing craptacular video quality? And while found footage and retro-set films have used filters and special effects to introduce bad looking video quality, I’m pretty sure the […]Read On »

Rating: Unrated Stars: Paul Bettany, Mark Strong, Stephen Graham, Brian Cox Writer: Bill Gallagher Director: Nick Murphy Distributor: RLJ Entertainment Release Date: home video/digital download, September 10, 2013 A British crime drama – hell, any kind of production whatever – starring Paul Bettany, Mark Strong, Brian Cox and Stephen Graham is going to be worth seeing. As it happens, BLOOD has merits above and beyond its cast, with director Nick Murphy and writer Bill Gallagher maintaining a near-claustrophobic tension as Bettany’s English police detective Joe Fairburn grapples with guilt, fear and rage. Joe works in a precinct with his brother […]Read On »

SPARTACUS VENGEANCE has finished cutting a bloody swath across Friday nights on Starz, and the body count left in its wake is a considerable chunk of the recurring cast. Dustin Clare who plays Gannicus luckily was not one of the casualties, and the actor has now done two series of the hit show, VENGEANCE and the prequel series GODS OF THE ARENA. Pre-production has already started on the third season of the show, but ASSIGNMENT X got the chance to chat with Clare about returning to a whole new world in this second season of the on-going series.
