29 Jun onlygodforgives640

His mother, the head of a vast criminal organization, arrives from the US to collect the body of her favorite son, Billy. Julian’s brother has just been killed after having savagely murdered a young prostitute. Crazy with rage and thirsty for vengeance she demands the heads of the murderers from Julian. But first, Julian must confront Chang, a mysterious retired policeman – and figurehead of a divine justice – who has resolved to scourge the corrupt underworld of brothels and fight clubs.

Tonight at CineStar Zagreb Branimir centre see ‘Room 237′!

29 Jun room237640

In “Room 237”, we hear from people who have developed far-reaching theories and believe they have decoded the hidden symbols and messages buried in the late director’s film. Carefully examining “The Shining” inside out and forwards and backwards, “Room 237” is equal parts captivating, provocative and pure pleasure. Discover why many have been trapped in the Overlook for 30 years.

Rodney Ascher directed the 2010 short film “The S from Hell” which, like “Room 237”, premiered at Sundance and travelled the world (and the internet) soon after. “Room 237” expands upon “The S From Hell’s” style and substance; audio interviews are illuminated with a kaleidoscope of imagery (much of it influenced by horror films of the last hundred years) that brings the audience deep into the inner worlds of people who have been profoundly affected by the movies or TV. Ascher is known for genre-blurring work that includes countless short films, as well as commercial projects for clients including EA Games, Capitol Records, and VH1. He lives in Los Angeles with his family

Today on Tuskanac summer stage don’t miss our Midnight Madness screening: ‘Citadel’!

29 Jun citadel

A graduate from the National Film School of Ireland, Ciarán Foy’s film The Faeries of Blackheath Woods (2006) won nine ‘best short film’ awards including; Melbourne, Cork, and Brest. His debut feature film “Citadel” won the Midnighters Audience Award when it premiered at SXSW 2012, Best Irish First Feature at Galway Film Fleadh, THE NARCISSE FOR THE BEST FEATURE, Silver Méliès for the Best European Fantastic Film, A Special Mention – Mad Movies Jury at Neuchâtel International Fantastic Film Festival. He is presently at work on a number of new feature projects.

I tend to describe Citadel as a half psychological horror, half autobiography. The autobiographical part stems from my own battles with agoraphobia in my late teens and early twenties, which was the result of a violent and unprovoked attack I endured at the hands of a gang of youths. I began to sketch out ideas for Citadel as a way to explore my own paranoia’s and fears, as well as my ultimate recovery from it. A lifelong genre film fanatic I thought this would be great material for a psychological horror film.
I wanted to create a horror film but I also wanted it to feel ‘real’ and grounded. I envisaged a film that played out like real, believable and gritty drama but contained all the thrills and suspense of a solid work of genre filmmaking. I wanted to capture the terror of the real things I experienced and embellish them with something extra-ordinary – a combination of my nightmares and paranoid imaginations.

Superman – “Man of Steel” hits theatres June 20!

31 May naslovna

Thirty years ago, Superman was epitomized by the legendary Christopher Reeve who took his young and loyal audience on an incredible journey all the way to the planet Krypton to show us that behind the ordinary and somewhat nerdish young man like Clark Kent hides the true super-hero! Screenwriters of this prequel, which is titled “Man of Steel”, David S. Goyer and Christopher Nolan bring us the young Superman (Henry Cavill) who has just embarked on the adventure of his lifetime. He will try to grasp where he actually arrived from and what his true quest on Earth is. Although reluctant, he will have to confront his secret extraterrestrial nature when members of his race invade the Earth. But first, he will need to mature as a hero in order to save the world from destruction, and became a symbol of hope for all mankind.

Penny Dreadful

17 Apr Frankenstein's_monster_(Boris_Karloff)

Van Helsing, Doctor Frankenstein, Dorian Gray and many other “icons” will be placed in Victorian-era London, the time when most of them originated, to wipe out the living dead or face their own demons. The show’s title comes from pulp novels that used to be published in Victorian England and sold for one penny, intended for working-class youth. They were mostly gothic thrillers and crime novels, and one of the familiar characters they have produced is Sweeney Todd. With the ascent of industrialization and the birth of capitalism, people had more money and leisure time, and reading became a new form of entertainment. Young members of the working class, who could not afford books on a weekly basis, founded clubs where they borrowed and exchanged issues, which were actually forerunners of comic books.


Chan-wook Park’s Stoker

26 Mar nicole-kidman-stoker-poster-01

It’s an interesting combination of horror, drama and thriller written by none other than Prison Break star Wentworth Miller. The title of the movie alone should remind us of Dracula’s creator Bram Stoker, but this is their only connection.


The movie is about the family of the teenager India who is grieving the death of her father. Soon, her uncle, a stranger, comes to live with her and her unstable mother, played by Nicole Kidman, who has obviously craved another go at true horror after her brilliant role in Amenábar’s The Others.
Young India is becoming suspicious of her uncle’s intentions, at the same time getting obsessed with him. With uncle Charlie’s similarity to Norman Bates and allusions to Hamlet, both examples of Park’s postmodernist twists, it seems that the director has filmed an homage to western tradition of genre film and its key characters.
