Just for the Record – Trailer for Brit Mockumentary about the film biz

Posted by LiveFor on March 27, 2010

Quite a cast – Steven Berkoff, Phil Davis, Danny Dyer, Craig Fairbrass, Ciaran Griffiths, Roland Manookian, Lisa McAllister, Callum McNab, Billy Murray, Sean Pertwee, Colin Salmon, Victoria Silvstedt, Triana Terry, Ian Virgo. It tells the story of a catastrophic low-budget film-shoot, as related by its cast and crew to a documentary maker played by comedy superstar Rik Mayall.

Just For The Record is a warning to anyone thinking of making a feature film on the cheap. By turns hilarious, tragic and poignant, the direct to camera interviews of the cast and crew expose the truth of the seedy, cash-strapped and ultimately thankless world of micro-budget filmmaking.

Reminiscing about every stage of the process from conception through scripting, casting, preproduction, shooting, editing and ultimately giving up in despair – this pathetic tale will entertain, inform and warn off anyone thinking of getting involved in a similar project.

In 2008 an independent production company set out to make the micro-budget feature film ‘Just For The Record’. Armed with a stellar cast of top TV actors, the world’s most advanced digital camera and a quirky location to die for … what could possibly go wrong? A lot, as it happens.

A year after the film has been abandoned, the cast and crew reunite for a series of interviews about the ill-fated production.

Directed by Steven Lawson (Dead Cert)

Dead Cert – Trailer for Gangsters v Vampires film

Posted by LiveFor on March 21, 2010

Been a while since I last mentioned this one but now there is an unofficial trailer.

Dead Cert stars Craig Fairbrass (EastEnders, Modern Warfare 2, Cliffhanger), Billy Murray (The Bill, EastEnders and also the producer on the project) plus Jason Flemyng (Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) and Steven Berkoff. Directed by former actor Steven Lawson.

In the film a gang of tough London gangsters get more than they bargained for when a group of businessmen make an offer to buy their club, the Inferno. They turn out to be nothing less than Vampires wanting their land back and turn viciously on the gangsters when their demands are not met.

Devil’s Playground – Photo from Danny Dyer’s athletic zombie film

Posted by LiveFor on February 23, 2010

Directed by Andrew Gunn and starring Vinnie (MIDNIGHT MEAT TRAIN) Jones, Danny (SEVERANCE) Dyer, Tamer (THE FERRYMAN) Hassan, Martin (EMBRACE OF THE VAMPIRE) Kemp, Jemima Rooper, Billy Murray and Lisa (PUMPKINHEAD: ASHES TO ASHES) McAllister this one was first mentioned back in November 2008. Now Quiet Earth have a couple of photos and a more detailed synopsis.

London: The not too distant future. Newgen Industries, a leading pharmaceutical company company, is trying to placate a media uproar. Its new “legal performance enhancer”, RAK-295, has met with spectacular failure during testing, causing severe physical and allergic reactions in all 30,000 of its test subjects….

Allergic reactions in all but one user… Angela Mills.

Angela is pregnant and is making arrangements for own leave of absence from a city full of woe and bad memories for her.

With Angela being the only person not to report any type of reaction to Newgen, Dr. Brooke (Head of Newgen) understands that Angela may hold the key to solving this disaster and enlists Cole, the head of security to find her and bring her in for examination.

But Cole, a hardened ex-mercenary, has just handed in his resignation to Peter White, the CEO of the company. Why? He wants out – the undercover violent and murderous job of solving problems ‘off the record’ has started to weigh heavy on his conscience.

…His timing couldn’t be worse. A violent outbreak of a RAK-295 test subject at Newgen’s labs reveals that the drug has far, far more catastrophic consequences then either Brooke, White or Cole could imagine. The drug reacts with extreme volatility in the subject, taking over their physiology and mental faculties, and causing accelerated and highly advanced muscular improvement, where that person becomes incredibly fast, incredibly agile, and incredibly ferocious – effectively that person ceases to be who they once were and instead are now these crazed and enraged beings. What’s more, not only does it make them impervious to pain, the drug carries a vicious contagion – one bite and the victim ‘turns’ too.

The outbreak claims Brooke and Peter White and during the struggle Cole is bitten – his fate sealed.

Or is it?..

Doghouse – trailer for mad cannibal women film

Posted by LiveFor on February 8, 2009

I posted a trailer for this back in September but looks like it is nearing release.

Vince is handling his divorce badly. He’s depressed. Gone to pieces. But his mates aren’t giving up on him. Struggling with their own mid-life troubles, they drag him off for a boy’s weekend in the country… which goes horribly twisted when they find themselves holidaying in a village overrun by psychotic, homicidal women.

Forced to hide out in the empty shops when their minibus driver also goes crazy, they’re cut off and helpless. And clueless. But then they encounter an injured soldier, the sole survivor of a bloody massacre, and discover that an airborne toxin is the cause of this disaster – a toxin that only affects women, turning them into man-hating, frenzied cannibals.

Seven of these deranged women, each with an axe or two to grind, stalk the streets. The soldier insists that the whole town has turned, but he doesn’t know where the rest of the women are hiding. Somewhere out there, there are dozens more. Maybe hundreds.

Two of the boys, stuck up on a billboard, attempt to take out the opposition with a bag of golf balls. But they’re dropped into the fight when the billboard is cut down, crashing across the entry road and preventing the boys from driving out of there.

Getting back to boy scout basics, the boys utilise anything and everything at their disposal to fight off the infected women. Communicating with toy A-Team walkie-talkies, they attempt to distract the infected women with radio-controlled cars, and fight back with water pistols filled with nitro fluid. Their most ingenious plan, dressing up in women’s clothes and sneaking away under their noses, works for about twenty seconds. One violent street fight later, and everyone is holed up in a CHURCH, waiting for daybreak.

Getting back to boy scout basics, the boys utilise anything and everything at their disposal to fight off the infected women.

Their most ingenious plan, dressing up in women’s clothes and sneaking away under their noses, works for about twenty seconds. One violent street fight later, and everyone is holed up in a CHURCH, waiting for daybreak.

This turns out to be their unluckiest plan yet. Below the church, the underground crypt is wall to wall with dead meat. This is where the town’s men have ended up, as FOOD. The crypt is a NEST. We’ve found the rest of the women. They’re feeding.

And CHANGING. The second stage of the infection is kicking in. They’re getting uglier, and nastier… and SMARTER.

Escaping on to the rooftops from a church packed with rabid freaks, the boys’ numbers drop again thanks to a brutal assault from the town Butcher. The last survivors end up back on the minibus with no way out of town. But something has happened to Vince. The boyish behaviour required to beat the odds here has kicked his mid-life crisis into high gear. He guns the minibus engine and takes the boys OFF ROAD, navigating a bumpy, scenic route to freedom.

But when Vince’s walkie-talkie crackles to life with the voice of a friend they all thought had been killed, they know they can’t leave. The bus screeches to a halt and the boys head back into hell for the final confrontation or, at the very least, a Butch and Sundance ending. Sean crashes bus back through the billboard barrier and skids to a halt before a snarling horde of bloodthirsty demonic women.

Devil’s Playground – Free Running Zombies, Danny Dyer, Martin Kemp and Vinnie Jones

Posted by LiveFor on November 11, 2008

Andrew Gunn will be directing Devil’s Playground based on a script by Bart Ruspoli (an actor in Band of Brothers and Rome) and the film will be produced by Jonathan Sothcott who clearly has the most experience out of the three. Here’s what producer Sothcott had to say about the film:

”Starring Vinnie (MIDNIGHT MEAT TRAIN) Jones, Danny (SEVERANCE) Dyer, Tamer (THE FERRYMAN) Hassan, Martin (EMBRACE OF THE VAMPIRE) Kemp, Jemima Rooper, Billy Murray and Lisa (PUMPKINHEAD: ASHES TO ASHES) McAllister, DEVIL’S PLAYGROUND details the plight of the last remnants of a civilization destroyed by an all-out zombie armageddon, following the misguided experiments of a presumed-dead Nobel Prize-winning virologist. In a bid for survival, a group of survivors seek safe haven on a coastal British island, where they hole up in a gas station. Joining them is Cole, a man Sothcott describes as having “little or no conscience, who was made to survive in a world such as this, and who is after someone or something. He will stop at nothing until he succeeds in his mission.”

The group’s sanctuary is compromised by a freak accident, however, and all hell breaks loose once they seek refuge in a house on the outskirts of a nearby forest. Channeling NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, the danger comes from not only the encroaching zombie horde, but also from within, as desperation and paranoia mount. Not in keeping with George A. Romero’s zombie oeuvre are the flick’s ghouls, which—like the infected in 28 DAYS/WEEKS LATER, are lightning-fast, and Sothcott reveals that they’ll be portrayed by “free runner” athletes. “I’ve seen the stuff these guys do and the way they move, and it will be more terrifying than any CGI trickery. These boys are going to be savage. Teaming tough-guy icons Danny, Tam and Vinnie, we need some pretty serious adversaries—and our monsters are as brutal as they come.”
