‘The Soul Collector’ DVD Review

‘The Soul Collector’ DVD Review
Stars: Chris April, Inge Beckmann, Garth Breytenbach, Keita Luna, Tshamano Sebe | Written and Directed by Harold Holscher

After suffering a crippling bankruptcy William Zeil returns to his old family farm that he inherited from his father, bringing with him his wife Sarah and their young adopted daughter, Mary, hoping for a fresh start. They soon meet Lazarus, an old farmhand who looked after William’s father, who takes an immediate, almost paternal liking to Mary. It becomes evident that the local tribal leader has a considerable problem with Lazarus, as do many in the community. On his end, Lazarus has no shortage of his own problems — his wife having died in childbirth, his daughter later perishing in a fire, he is tormented in this terrible place of wounding memories and unrestful souls. Lonely… but, as the Zeil family will soon discover, never alone.

The Celludroid Sci-Fi / Fantasy / Animation Film Festival goes Hybrid!

The Celludroid Sci-Fi / Fantasy / Animation Film Festival goes Hybrid!
After the Horrorfest film festival (est. 2005) started receiving many feature films and short films from around the world with strong Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Animation elements (but not enough to fit the event's Horror theme), the organizers felt compelled to not let these amazing submissions fall by the wayside, and simply created a separate event. Thus Celludroid was born! (movie submissions at https://filmfreeway.com/Celludroid ) While its main focus is Science Fiction, Celludroid also include Animation and movies with Fantasy elements. Since its inception in 2009, Celludroid screened loads of great short films and some amazing movies, new, old and rare, from District 9, Iron Sky, Hardware, Montauk Chronicles and Dust Devil, to Akira, Lunopolis, Godkiller, War Of The Worlds: The True Story, Automatons, The Rift, Science Team and...

Review: Richard Stanley's 'Color Out of Space' is a Blessing From the Beyond

South African filmmaker Richard Stanley made his feature directorial debut in 1990 with Hardware, a post-apocalyptic science fiction flick about a self-repairing cyborg that goes on a rampage. His second film, 1992's Dust Devil, is a kind of supernatural Spaghetti Western about a shape-shifting, hitchhiking serial killer. These low-budget genre movies, while commercial failures, showed potential and made it possible for Stanley to work on his dream project – an adaptation of H.G. Wells' The Island of Doctor Moreau for New Line Cinema (in 1996). What was meant to be the filmmaker's big break became his undoing. After years of developing the script, Stanley was fired a few days after principal photography began and replaced by John Frankenheimer. The filmmaker retreated, quite literally, into the wilderness and left Hollywood behind. Ironically, the Doctor Moreau ordeal and Stanley's subsequent exile would be the catalyst for bringing him back into the spotlight. After seeing a 2014 documentary on the subject,

Color Out of Space Review: A Wild Lovecraftian Horror That Lets Nicolas Cage Shine

Color Out of Space Review: A Wild Lovecraftian Horror That Lets Nicolas Cage Shine
Richard Stanley is a name many mainstream moviegoers may not be aware of, but for certain genre fans, it's a name that brings great joy. The director behind Hardware and Dust Devil hasn't made a feature-length movie since his ill-fated adaptation of The Island of Doctor Moreau in 1996. Until now that is. Stanley is back and, this time, he's tackling an H.P. Lovecraft adaptation in the form of Color Out of Space. Just for good measure, he's brought Nicolas Cage along for the ride. The end result is a decidedly weird, uncompromising Lovecraftian technicolor nightmare.

Color Out of Space centers on the Gardner family who is living the quiet life far removed from the city. After a meteorite lands in the front yard of their farm, Nathan Gardner (Nicolas Cage) and his family find that there may be more to this space rock than previously thought. Following a series of strange occurrences,

How Color Out of Space Finally Gets H.P. Lovecraft Right

Don Kaye Jan 23, 2020

Director Richard Stanley brings his long-awaited Color Out of Space to the screen at last.

Color Out of Space adapts what legendary horror author H.P. Lovecraft considered his personal favorite short story, “The Colour Out of Space.” Although the film is set in the present, it is faithful to the original 1927 narrative, in which a family is both driven to madness and altered physically by the presence of an alien entity that has landed on their farm in a meteorite.

The new film stars Nicolas Cage as the head of the doomed Gardner family, while the director and writer is Richard Stanley, the South African-born filmmaker whose feature career got off to an acclaimed start in 1990 with the cyberhorror thriller Hardware. Stanley followed that with the troubled but still visionary Dust Devil in 1992, and then landed his first Hollywood assignment in 1996 with a third film version of

Podtalk: Director Richard Stanley Finds ‘Color Out of Space’

Chicago – Richard Stanley has finally steered clear from one of the most infamous chapters of movie history. His new narrative feature film is “Color Out of Space.” It is his first since being let go from the 1996 “The Island of Dr. Moreau.” After much gnashing of teeth and a documentary about it later, Stanley went back to his childhood roots for “Color,” a horror sci-fi epic featuring Nicolas Cage.

A family is on the brink in the fictional town of Arkham, Massachusetts (part of the universe created by sci-fi author H.P. Lovecraft). After they inherit a rural family estate, their struggling artist patriarch Nathan Gardner (Nicolas Cage) is trying to keep his wife Theresa (Joely Richardson) and children focused on adaptation. That changes one evening when a small meteorite crashes in the yard. Although the purple-glowing orb soon withers into dust, it infects the local water supply. While this effect on the crops is bountiful,

Color Out of Space Trailer: Nicolas Cage Stars in H.P. Lovecraft Movie Adaptation

Joseph Baxter Nov 6, 2019

Nicolas Cage stars in Color Out of Space, adapting H.P. Lovecraft’s story about a mysterious meteor’s effect on a small town.

Color Out of Space may be one of many when it comes to star Nicolas Cage’s current spate of debt-decreasing payday pictures, but this one arrives with the unique context of being a wantonly wild adaptation of a story by legendary horror author H.P. Lovecraft.

This prospective new source of “Cage Rage” memes has the iconic headliner playing a family man whose farm estate existence becomes incredibly inconvenienced when a meteorite lands on his front yard; an event that becomes the catalyst for an outbreak of a mutant virus that runs roughshod across his Massachusetts small town, jeopardizing his family and neighbors.

Famously embattled South African horror auteur Richard Stanley serves as director here, working off a screenplay that he co-wrote with Scarlett Amaris,

Toronto Film Review: ‘Color Out of Space’

Toronto Film Review: ‘Color Out of Space’
Five years ago, one of the most famously troubled productions in movie history was colorfully detailed in the documentary “Lost Soul: The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley’s Island of Doctor Moreau.” Its major takeaway was the cruel injustice of a director being removed from a project that had been his baby from inception. If you wondered what Stanley might’ve got up to had that experience not traumatized him out of the business (some documentaries and shorts aside) for more than a quarter-century, there’s finally an answer of sorts in “Color Out of Space.”

His first big-screen narrative feature since 1992 returns to the berserk mixes of external fantasy and personal idiosyncrasy that made pre-“Island” efforts “Hardware” and “Dust Devil” cult favorites. It’s based on a much-adapted H.P. Lovecraft story, and like most prior versions, takes considerable liberties with the original material. Entertaining but uneven, the

Flickerfest is an impressive showcase for Danielle Boesenberg

Danielle Boesenberg.

With five shorts she has worked on screening this week at the Flickerfest International Short Film Festival screen editor Danielle Boesenberg must have a good shot at success at the festival.

She knew Ritual and Dust Devil were having their world premieres because she had a heads-up from the filmmakers. When the program came out she was pleasantly surprised to find Birdie, Black Lips and I F*cked A Mermaid and No One Believes Me were also selected.

“What I love about the five is they are all very different: two dramas, a comedy, a documentary and a queer film,” she tells If.

After working on more than 30 shorts she is looking to take the next step into features and long-form TV dramas, noting: “It’s just a matter of finding the right project.”

Most ambitiously, she and her partner, screenwriter Sam Meikle, hope to co-direct a movie
