Directed by Christophe Gans (Brotherhood of the Wolf), 2006’s Silent Hill is an adaptation of Konami’s 1999 survival horror video game of the same name. Written by Gans and Roger Avary (Beowulf), the film stars Radha Mitchell (Pitch Black, Rogue) as Rose, a woman searching for her missing daughter (Jodelle Ferland) in the abandoned town of Silent Hill.
A ghost town for 30 years, Silent Hill was the site of a massive coal-seam fire. Now, it exists as a town trapped in a dark dream, occupied by damned souls and hideous monsters. Like the Playstation game, the film incorporates elements of exploration, puzzle-solving, and combat, while building dread through its eerie atmosphere.
When Stargate Universe was canceled in 2011, executive producers of the television franchise Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie began work on a comic book series called Dark Matter for Dark Horse Comics. After the release of the comic, Mallozzi began teasing fans on his blog that he and Mullie were also working on a science fiction scripted drama that they were hoping would be picked up by a network.
Well, it’s a few years later, and they’ve finally received their wish!
I recently had a long discussion with a good friend about my ever-ongoing obsession with horror films, and my quest to find more movies that were visually challenging.
"Oh, you need to see Seed," she told me. Being a horror aficionado herself, she surprised me continuing with, "I even had trouble watching it".
Naturally I added it to the top of my queue.
Directed by "love him or hate him" Uwe Boll, Seed follows the story of imprisoned serial killer Maxwell "Max" Seed (Will Sanderson). Arrested for his morbid death toll of 666 deaths (as cheesy as that sounds, it’s fitting as you will later read), he is on death row facing execution. Despite protest from the Executioner (Michael Eklund) to Warden Calgrove (Ralf MÃ¶ller) on the failing condition of the electric chair, the authorities push forward with zapping Seed.

Though the movie was finished filming in 2009 and originally slated for release in 2010, The Cabin in the Woods is just now giving us a first official trailer.
The movie, which is written and produced by Joss Whedon and written and directed by Drew Goddard, fell victim to MGM’s major financial woes, and like many others it found itself stashed away in the attic, left to gather dust.
But thankfully for all of us, Lionsgate eventually showed up to save the day and set a new release date of April 13, 2012.
