Eaters is a road movie with an extreme zombie theme. It tells a two-day journey of two men in search of survivors. Directed by Luca Boni and Marco Ristori and produced by offendor to film, Uwe Boll (although signs seem to suggest he is getting better). With the title of Eaters I was hoping it was a Joe Abercrombie inspired fantasy film, but we’re going to have to wait a while longer for that.
Quiet Earth posted the trailer and this translated synopsis:
This will be a difficult journey during which our (anti) heroes meet the characters as varied as they are alive or dead. Between neo-Nazis unscrupulous, a deranged painter, priests, murderers and so on and so forth, they will discover that maybe is not really the end of the world. Behind all this freakshow is the true idea of the movie, the clash of an evil is an (almost) well in a world decimated by a terrible female infertility (first) and the Great Infection (then) derived from his hope of to stem the problem of births zero.
Rumour has it that this is actually a good Uwe Boll film. I have yet to see it.
Fed up with his dead-end life, Bill constructs a full-body kevlar armor suit and rampages through the streets of his hometown killing everyone in sight, particularly the barista that failed to make him a proper macchiato.
In the claustrophobic confines of a jail cell, an inmate is discovered hanged. In the back-and-forth between the interrogation of his cellmates and the dehumanizing events that led to his death, the horrific truth about what really transpired reveals the duplicitous side of human nature.
Stoic stars Edward Furlong of Terminator 2 fame and is directed by uber director, Uwe Boll (Bloodrayne, Alone in the Dark and other crimes against cinema).
Previously his films have been mainly comic and video game based and a great big pile of steaming celluloid. This has all been for some weird tax thing in Europe, but could he actually be starting to make films that are slightly better than his usual ones?
The jury is out but what do you think of this film from the trailer?
This is it. Our first look at Mega Shark. I hope Magneto managed to get off the bridge in time.
Who’s that I hear you cry. Why it is only one half of the monster tag team from the most exciting film of this and any other millenium, Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus. The Asylum Film that the entire World is talking about.
Well I am sure they would be talking about it if it wasn’t for Star Trek, Wolverine, Terminator Salvation and Uwe Boll’s Far Cry.
I did actually mention the film a while back when I discovered that Debbie Gibson was starring in it which goes some way to show the quality of cinematic excellence you can expect when you watch it on DVD.
Will you be watching a the two sea giants duke it out? Are you a fan of Asylum Films? Do you wish you had never laid eyes on this post and are even now searching for a rusty spoon to scrape out your eyes due to the immense awesomeness of the concept?
Thanks to Undead Backbrain for posting this picture. They also have one of the Giant Octopus, but I don’t think you are quite ready to see that.
Uwe Boll, master of the art of filmmaking, winner of multiple Oscars and loved by Video Game players and film fans everywhere is making another film. Only one fact in that previous statement was true.
This time his new film is a serious one. I know, I know, BloodRayne was almost Shakespearean in its intent, but no this one is really serious (for those not yet up to speed, I am being quite sarcastic).
According to FilmstalkerJanjaweed aka Darfur “tells the story of American journalists in Sudan who are torn between returning home to report on what they have seen or to stay and try and help the victims of the atrocities there, something the countries of the world were unwilling to do…yet again.“
Variety have the news on who will be starring in the film.
Edward Furlong (American History X, Terminator 2)) will star alongside Billy Zane and Kristanna Loken (BloodRayne) in Uwe Boll’s “Janjaweed.” Drama is lensing in Cape Town, South Africa. The film follows American journalists confronting atrocities in Sudan.
Furlong next appears in John Morrissey’s “Tequila,” indie “This Is Not a Movie,” and another Boll film, “Stoic.”
I am a big fan of the Zane as some of you no doubt know. He would have been a kick ass Bruce Wayne / Batman back in the day. However, I don’t think starring in a Uwe Boll film is the right thing for him to do.
What do you make of that? Boll doing a serious film with issues and everything? Do you think he will do it justice or will it crash and burn?
HR have some interesting news on genre failure, Uwe Boll’s latest film.
German director Uwe Boll has found a new way to finance his genre output — going to the Web to draw in “co-producers” willing to cough up 33 euros ($49) each to back his latest, the terrorist disaster tale “Blackout.”
Boll hopes to raise $18.5 million, 50 bucks at a time, for “Blackout” through the film’s Web site, TheBlackoutFilm.com. Participants who sign up, and transfer the money, are promised a limited-edition DVD of the film plus a chance to win a trip to the set and other prizes.
The site will be open till March 31. If the planned budget is not reached by then, but at least 43% of the desired cash has been collected, Boll may elect to make the movie with a smaller budget. If not, he says he will return most of the cash to investors. The site claims that at least 27 euros ($40) from each payment will be returned should the film not get made.
Known as “the Ed Wood of Germany,” Boll has been consistently trashed by critics for his adaptations of popular video games including “Alone in the Dark,” “BloodRayne” and the Dungeon Siege film “In the Name of the King.”
He is now shooting the apocalyptic thriller “The Storm” starring Lauren Holly and Luke Perry and has several genre titles in the pipeline as producer, including “BloodRayne 3” and “Zombie Massacre.”
That means if none of us give him money then the film doesn’t get made. I guess you all know what you should do then!
Interestingly the tagline for The Black out is Every system has its weak points. I think the main weak point would be having Uwe Boll direct it.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lauren Holly and Luke Perry will be starring in Uwe Boll’s The Storm. In the film, it is the end of days and Lauren Holly needs Luke Perry to survive.
In a story from Variety, David R. Ellis (Snakes on a Plane) will be helming Six Days Till Midnight, a thriller about a wealthy businessman who encounters a stranger who says he has six days to answer one question. For each day he doesn’t get the answer, a loved one will be killed, ending with the businessman’s death at the end of the sixth day.
Jurassic Park IV won’t be happening. Producers Frank Marshall and Kathleen Kennedy told ComingSoon yesterday that there have not been any new developments.
ABC has announced that they will be bringing the hit Vertigo comic book series Fables to the small screen. Created and written by Bill Willingham in 2002, the series has won fourteen Eisner Awards. Based in a world where fairy tale characters have been forced out of their homes by a mysterious enemy known as the Adversary, and now live in a hidden community in New York City known as Fabletown – “Who Killed Rose Red? In fabletown, where fairy legends live along side regular New yorkers, the question is all anyone can talk about. But only the Big Bad Wolf can actually solve the case – and, along with Rose’s sisterSnow White, keep the Fabletown community from coming apart at the seams.” – I’ve read the first few collections of this and it is brilliant. Go out and buy them all.
Collider talked with Daniel Craig about where Bond will go next – “We’ve finished this story as far as I’m concerned,” Craig asserts. “We’ve got a great set of bad guys. There is an organization that we can use whenever we want to. The relationship between Bond and M is secure and Felix is secure. Let’s try and find where Moneypenny came from and where Q comes from. Let’s do all that and have some fun with it.”

Scientists believe that a mutant catfish has begun killing people after feeding on human corpses dumped in the river on the India-Nepal border.
The giant catfish, known as a goonch, is thought to have developed a taste for human flesh in the Great Kali river where partially-burnt bodies after disposed of after funerals.
The Sun reports that locals believe the fish has moved on from scavenging food from corpses to snatching unwary bathers swimming in the river.
According to the newspaper, an 18-year-old Nepali disappeared in the river in 2007, dragged beneath the water by a creature described as like an “elongated pig”.
Biologist Jeremy Wade is investigating the creature for a TV documentary. According to The Sun, he discounted a theory that crocodiles were responsible for the disappearance of swimmers before turning his attention to goonches, a species that ranks as one of the world’s biggest freshwater fish.
Wade has already caught one goonch that tipped the scales at a record-breaking weight of 73kg and measured six feet in length.
Goonch attacks in the area are thought to date back ten years, reports The Sun. In 1998, a 17-year-old Nepalese boy suddenly disappeared while cooling himself in the river in 1998. Three months later another young boy was dragged underwater as his father watched helplessly.
