Psychomanteum

Director: Ray Brady.

Synopsis: An independently produced film, eight short psychological films to comprise a portmanteau feature, collaboration between Ray Brady (five excerpts) and three other Directors excerpts Jason Martin “The Language of Birds”, Asa Taulbut “Fallen” & Jamie Drew “The Stranger”.

Long synopsis: Shot over seven years on a self-financed micro-budget, “Psychomanteum” is a collaboration between four British filmmakers consisting of eight interlinking highly disturbing short stories that are in turn horrific, fantastical or science fiction scenarios. All the films were shot in and around London in the UK, with a purposeful emphasis on psychological visceral aspects of terror rather than the physical portrayal of horror.

MidWest WeirdFest

From the founder of Australia's two leading genre film festivals - A Night of Horror International Film Festival and Fantastic Planet, Sydney Sci-Fi and Fantasy Film Festival - comes a cinematic celebration of all things fantastic, frightening, underground, off-beat, alternative, and just plain weird... to the American Midwest!

The Midwest is filled with dark and mysterious byways, strange critters, and mythical beasties. And the great state of Wisconsin has more than its share: from the very real historical monsters Ed Gein and Jeffery Dahmer, to legendary cryptids like the Beast of Bray Road and the Hodag, to strange and wonderful places such as the Forevertron, a UFO landing port, and the mythical town of killer midgets known as Haunchyville.... It's the perfect territory for a festival that focuses on weird cinema from all around the world.

The festival team dreams of MidWest WeirdFest evoking the awe and chills of the sideshow alley of a dark carnival, a place filled with wonders, terrors, and forbidden surprises. The cinematic equivalent of a collection of pulp magazines and underground comix. A film festival that not only celebrates and showcases independent genre cinema - horror, sci-fi, fantasy, thriller - but one that welcomes all types of underground film. From experimental and avant-garde to offbeat documentaries. The festival's seasoned programmers can't wait to see what cinematic wonders await in MidWest WeirdFest's first season of festival submissions!

MidWest WeirdFest's main venue is the Micon Downtown Cinema, located in the welcoming college town of Eau Claire, Wisconsin.

10 Cloverfield Lane, Review: Hollowcaust

10 Cloverfield Lane, Review: Hollowcaust Ultra-thin story line, with some slick moments in the first half, is how one can sum up 10 Cloverfield Lane. A psychological, science fiction, holocaust, suspense tale, the film needed a rock solid unravelling. Instead, it goes off on an indulgent tangent, and you come out wondering, “So this was what it was all about?” It is the second film in the Cloverfield franchise. The film was developed from a script titled The Cellar, but while und...

(Maze Runner II)-The Scorch Trials, Review: Trial and terror                                                                  Titles can mislead. Read in standalone mode, The Scorch Trials can easily be mistaken to be a film chronicling a series of court-room cases about burning issues. Of course, it is “no issue”, if ...

Fantastic Four/FANT4STIC, Review: High on Fantasy, Low on Score

Fantastic Four/FANT4STIC, Review: High on Fantasy, Low on Score Fourth outing for Marvel’s Fantastic 4 has a thinly spread plot and is further handicapped by lack-lustre performances. While a sequel is already in the offing, the 2015 prequel to the sci-fi series that was first adapted to the screen in 1994 seems to offer little raison d’être for it. Ten years ago, the first to be released theatre version, called Fantastic 4, was critically panned, though successful at the bo...

What are People Watching?

            Manilo Gomarasca is a film critic for nocturno.it and he has already seen a couple of interesting movies being sold in the market.  So far he has seen “Martyrs,” A new Nicolas Cage movie and the third installment of “The Human Centipede.” He suggests staying away from the first two. “Martyrs” sounded as if it was a bit of a disappointment and Nicolas Cage did not put his best put forward according to Gomarasca....

Insurgent, Review: Prior knowledge

Insurgent, Review: Prior knowledge Metaphors, here, metaphors there, metaphors everywhere. Besides metaphors, there’s a lot of pain and anguish and a large take-away moral in Insurgent: unity in diversity/let a thousand flowers bloom/different does not mean bad or hostile/religion or caste should preach respect and love for others, not hatred. In that milieu, the appropriate title for the second coming, Divergent being the first foray, should have been Convergent. Obviously, that would ...
