Guillermo Del Toro’s “The Night Eternal” hits bookstores soon…

Posted on 13 October 2011 by TH3 No08

The first two books in The Strain Trilogy were a bit hit or miss for me. I enjoyed the concept behind the two but at times it seemed a bit formulaic. That being said I look forward to seeing how the third book in the series “The Night Eternal” wraps up the story. Pick it up when it hits stores on 10-25-2011 and check out the synopsis below.

Synopsis:
From the authors of the instant New York Times bestsellers The Strain and The Fall comes the final volume in one of the most electrifying thriller series in years.

Red Band Trailer for 11-11-11

Posted on 13 October 2011 by TH3 No08

Darren Bousman has a bit of a spotty track record with me. I can certainly appreciate what he was trying to do with the Saw sequels but it fell short the longer the series went on but I really enjoyed his remake of Mother’s Day. Here it looks like he’s gone completely overboard with the crazy in 11-11-11. Check out the trailer and tell me what you think.

Synopsis:

After the tragic death of his wife and child, famed American author Joseph Crone travels from the United States to Barcelona, Spain, to reunite with his estranged brother, Samuel, and dying father, Richard. However, fate has a different plan for Joseph as his life becomes plagued with strange happenings and the constant sightings of the number 11. Curiosity quickly turns to obsession, and Joseph soon realizes that this number holds a horrific meaning not only to himself but possibly to all of religion. Isolated in a foreign country with only the support of his companion, Sadie, Joseph soon realizes that 11/11/11 is more than just a date; it’s a WARNING!

Michael Beihn stars in The Divide

Posted on 11 October 2011 by TH3 No08

I’m a sucker for end of the world / post apocolyptic movies and this one looks right up my alley. Michael Beihn is back to star in this dark tale of a group of survivors locked in the basement of apartment building who must struggle to survive. Early reviews are saying this film is super intense and very dark. Looks promising.

When a cataclysmic explosion devastates New York, eight strangers take refuge in the basement of their apartment building, a converted fallout shelter designed by their paranoid superintendent Mickey. With just three connecting rooms it’s barely big enough, but with stockpiles of food and water, the group are at least safe from the horrors outside, and they settle in and attempt to fathom the catastrophe that has ended the lives of so many of their loved ones.

With twists and turns throughout, and no way of knowing who will make it out alive, THE DIVIDE is an action packed psychological thriller that combines ‘Assault on Precinct 13′ with ‘Lord of the Flies’. To survive the end of the world, you first must survive each other…

Seattle “Superhero” Phoenix Jones Arrested

Posted on 11 October 2011 by Christian

Inspired by DC Comics Hero Nightwing and with two years on the job, Seattle’s Phoenix Jones is arrested for the first time.

Phoenix and his sidekicks are claiming that they jumped into action once they saw a group of people kicking a defenseless man on the ground. However, it looks like the tables were turned and once Phoenix pulled out some pepper spray on the rowdy group, he was the one to be arrested for assault. The group in question also claims that there was no man being beaten on the ground, but that they were:

“dancing and having a good time when they were attacked by the masked man in black and yellow body armor.”

To add further insult to injury, the Seattle police released “Phoenix Jones” true identity to the public after the altercation which Jones states not only puts his family at risk but his daytime job of working with autistic kids in jeopardy.

There is a glimmer of hope that Jones can be vindicated as he was travelling with a freelance reporter that evening taking video recordings (click the link below for video).

Like the article says…”this would never happen to Batman”…
