Hey Monster fans, no that headline is not a lie, a new GODZILLA promo has been spotted!
So what exactly is it? Well 2014 will see a new GODZILLA film, from Legendary and the film already has a cast! This thing is being promoted already, with San Diego Comic Con happening now, time is not being wasted. The cast that we know of will consist of Bryan Cranston, Aaron Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen, not too shabby so far. Oh and did we mention the director on board is Gareth Edwards, with a screenplay by Frank Darabont (that’s what IMDb tells […]
Well we certainly are, and the good news is one is coming! Titled MAPS TO THE STARS, and starring Robert Pattinson (thankfully COSMOPOLIS washed the Edward Cullen right out of him), this new film has begun shooting. The shoot will last 30 days, providing it all goes well, Pattison will star alongside John Cusack, Julianne Moore, Mia Wasikowska, Olivia Williams, Sarah Gadon and Evan Bird. A pretty impressive cast if we do say so!
So what might this new film be about? Well details have been felt quiet until now. […]
We all love The Asylum (come on you know you secretly do), and coming off their social media hit SHARKNADO they have announced a new Shark related film!
So what is it this time? Well that Mega Shark has a new foe to battle with MEGA SHARK VS MECHA SHARK! This will mark the third film in the series (after MEGA SHARK VS. GIANT OCTOPUS and MEGA SHARK VS. CROCOSAURUS, so we can all hope they out do themselves on this one. After SHARKNADO I guess the stakes are higher, and the ridiculous factor should be aimed at WAY WAY […]
Greetings Monstersfiends, now I know what you must be thinking ‘enough with the remakes already’. There are remakes a plenty out there but there is one that just might be worth getting damn excited about!
Clint Eastwood’s classic western UNFORGIVEN has now been given the remake treatment, but with a huge difference. This new version stars Ken Watanabe as a retired samuari, who gets pulled back into action. Ah yes the original film didn’t exactly have any samurai did it?
Lee Sang-il has directed the film, and a full length trailer for it has now been released. We have it […]

You’ve seen the first poster for Spike Lee’s OLDBOY remake (here), and now check out the trailer! This is the no-holds-barred, balls n’ all, red band trailer – feast your nastly little eyes!
Fans of the original OLDBOY will see a few distinct similarities and for those who haven’t seen the original (what’s wrong with you?) a whole world of discovery awaits!
So what’s the verdict Monsterphiles… you excited? The OLDBOY remake stars Josh Brolin, Elizabeth Olsen, Samuel L Jackson and Sharlto Copley which is a pretty reasonable cast, as it needed to be considering how uniformly fucking […]
Okay Monsterfreaks, lets delve back under the sheets of the MIFF Night Shift program…
Check out this bevy of bloody beauties!
LESSON OF THE EVIL
In an unassuming Japanese high school, young, good-looking Mr Hasumi is everything a teacher should be: popular with staff and students; kind, talented, sympathetic; highly deranged. Obviously the stage is set for the kind of gleeful all-out massacre that only Takashi Miike (Ace Attorney, MIFF 2012) could possibly pull off.
If his recent films suggested that Miike might be slowing down, Lesson of the Evil takes those concerns, locks them inside a school and kills
I am sure there are many of you are positively buzzing at the thought of MIFF, fair enough too, there’s shit loads to be pumped about!
With the grisly delights of giallo and the MIFF Night Shift putting a spring into the stride of every bona fide freak this side of the Blue Ranges, we thought we’d have a chat to the brains trust behind the programming.
The Monsters Eye got stuck into the tough questions with Michelle Carey (Artistic Director) and Al Cossar (Programmer).
Read on and be amazed!!!
Michelle Carey – Artistic Director, tackles some of our […]
