Top 10 Scary Short Movies

Our list of top 10 scary short movies  represents the best of the best when it comes to creepy sensations over just a few minutes of online video streaming.

10. Blinky

The short movie Blinky, created by Irish movie writer and director Ruairi Robinson, is taking place in our not-so-distant future, when automatic family assistants are everywhere.

The film is probably a comment on the versatility of the brilliant and emotional human thoughts, from the viewpoint of a robot’s mindset. So, a truly synthetic intellect, capable of emotional or social connections, can be suffering from emotional and physical stress as a person would be.

9. Thresher

thresher

“Thresher” is quite a scary thriller made for the Guillermo Del Toro & Legendary Pictures’ “House of Horrors” contest. The movie follows the challenges of a man in a chained up space. He discovers the combination of a lock not knowing what is on the other side, and time is running out.

8. Unwind

unwind

Using only a small budget, this movie was shot in just one room with filming techniques that are at the claustrophobia edge. Actually, the girl’s eyes are the most interesting part of the film, but the motion of the camera insists of them, while the bone saws and ripping skin can haunt you long time after you have finished it.

7. The Gift

gift

Design and filming are The Gift’s most powerful traits; from its Half-Life-esque security officers to the snootiest robots, it is obvious that this short movie has plenty of style to spare. Nevertheless, what is most impressive there is the quantity of atmosphere building that occurs in such a short period, creating energy and effort.

6. Vacuity

vacuity

Even if it has its issues (the character recites an impressive countdown to connect both of his own hands), the scenario has conversation so hokey, it will make you wonder if they created a Sci-fi movie or a never ending monologue. It is good to notice that the voice-acting casting from Resident Evil has now another piece of art under its belt.

5. Ruin

ruin

This one stunning and specific movie you can see, and it is a five-minute continuous sci-fi story on the Internet. The scenario of the film will seem a bit general at first – it is just gray colors and damaged roadways – but that is not always bad. Sure, the whole apocalypse environment has been explored before, and now it is truly creepy.

4. Rosa

rosa

If you like only one scary sci-fi battle in high-definition, then Rosa is where the action is. You can really see the cracking skin on the skeletons, and it completely offers an entertainment value. Maybe the show biz industry is just behind the independent movies, but this short movie is an example of how the audience can be totally captivated, and in a good way.

3. Abe

abe

The movie looks a bit simple and inexpensive for the first moments, but at least have patience and you will immerge slowly into it. Do not let the most gratuitous critics either frighten you away or have unrealistic expectations from a short film created on a tight budget. Keep with it, since it begins as a pretty general story, it easily gets better into a bunch of sci-fi assault bullets.

2. Perfect Drug

perfect drug

“Perfect Drug” is an unusual mix of twisted humor, sci-fi and unique visuals all turned into an amazingly consistent story of a man who unintentionally drinks from a radiant vial that he has stolen from a drugstore for his manager. It was written by Belgian movie maker Toon Aerts, produced by Czar Films, a firm which makes ads, especially for cars.

1. Paralyzed

paralyzed

Showcases and darkness, playful lighting and funny music – if the components of scary movies came together and thrown without any logic into your face, the outcome would be “Paralyzed.” The brief story gives a strange feeling that many individuals have actually experienced – sleep paralysis – and develops a slinking and featureless appearance under the intangible fear.

List of Netflix Original Series That are Planned for 2015

House of Cards’ Season 3 isn’t the only Netflix Original Series to be released this year.

Netflix is on a roll, and we couldn’t be more happy with their streaming service –  for only $8.99 a month I can binge watch House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Bloodline and countless other TV series and awesome movies.

Here’s what to expect from Netflix this year:

2015 Netflix Show

  • DareDevil

DareDevil is actually premièring tonight so don’t miss it. Netflix and Marvel struck a deal, and with this new partnership they will be bringing us five new shows based on the expanded Marvel Universe. The first one to see the light of day is DareDevil, and it’s going to maintain the same origin story – as a boy, Matt Murdock – DareDevil – was in an unfortunate and terrible accident that blinded him. The event also gave him super powers. Matt, who is portrayed by Charlie Cox, fights injustice as a lawyer by day, and by night he takes criminals to Pummelling Street.

2015 Netflix Show

  • AKA Jessica Jones

We don’t have a release date for this show yet, but what we do know is that it’s going to be based on the expanded Marvel Universe. It will star Krysten Ritter, and the story will revolve around how a woman gives up crime-fighting as a superhero to become a private investigator – Super Detective Woman.

2015 Netflix SHow

  • Luke Cage

The third Netflix-Marvel child show will focus on Luke Cage, who in the comics is Jones’ husband. It’s rumoured to be released after the first season of Jessica Jones ends. Mike Colte will play Luke Cage, and the co-executive producer in charge of Almost Human, Naren Shankar will be the series’ showrunner.

Almost Human isn’t the only show that Naren has worked on. His other projects include: Farscape, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Night Visions, The Outer Limits, The Chronicle, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, seaQuest 2032, Grimm and Star Trek: Voyager.

That’s one hell of a resume.

Netflix 2015 Show

  • Chef’s Table

Netflix 2015 Show

  • Sense8

From Matrix creators Andy and Lana Wachowski, and Babylon 5’s J. Michael Straczynski, Sense8 is a new science fiction drama series about eight strangers all over the world who inexplicably become mentally linked to each other. Each episode will focus on one character and their story. There isn’t a main theme, but we were hinted that we will see the show focuse on sexuality, gender, persecution, bigotry, fear and identity crisis. It will be available on Netflix starting June the 5th.

I’m really excited about this new project by the Wachowski brothers, even though their last movie – Jupiter Ascending – was incredibly weak, I still have faith in them. More so when I found out that Cloud Atlas co-director Wachowski is on board.

Season 3

  • Orange is the New Black

Season 3 will hit this summer – on June the 12th to be more exact. Last season was the best so far, and for the past year I’ve been craving for more Piper Chapman, Sam Healy, Galina Red Reznikov, Taystee Jefferson and Poussey Washington. And I promise this time I won’t watch it in 2 days and then complain to my room mate Mark how empty life feels.

Pablo Escobar

  • Narcos

Does Pedro Pascal ring any bells to you? Well, how about Oberyn Martell? Yes, exactly him. The Game of Thrones actor that uhm met The Mountain, has his very own show. The story will focus on the life of Pablo Escobar and his cartel. An official date hasn’t been announced yet.

2015 Netflix Show

  • Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp

The first time that I read the shows name I instantly thought that Netflix was going into porn, but oh how horribly wrong I was. Starring Bradley Cooper, Amy Poehler, Paul Rudd, Janeane Garofalo, David Hyde Pierce, Molly Shannon, Elizabeth Banks, Chris Pine, Jon Hamm, Kristin Wiig, Jason Schwartzman and Jon Hamm the show is a must-see. Only 8 episodes have been announced, but you know that Netflix is going to release them all in one day – one day to binge watch them all that is. Take a day off on the July the 17th.

This will be the final season of Hemlock Grove. After 3 season filled with creepy supernatural events, it’s time for the characters to bury their hatchets and move on – probably in each other’s skulls. It will appear this year – no official date has been announced.

Season 4

  • Longmire

The canned TV show Longmire will make its 4th season available on Netflix. With 10 new episodes, the show has the hard task of convincing everyone into wanting another season. Although it’s rumoured to appear this year, there are huge changes that it’s going to be pushed to 2016.

Co-Creator of F is for Family

  • F is for Family

Comedian Bill Burr and The Simpsons’ writer and producer Michael Price will be in charge of this little gem that almost escaped my eyes. It’s going to be an animated sitcom series that will début sometime this year.

True Detective Season 2 will première on 21st of June

The first season of True Detective was like a breath of fresh air. Woody Harrelson was exceptional, but Matthew McConaughey sold the show; for me it was the first time seeing McConaughey play a role with such tremendous talent – the last movie I saw that starred Matthew was Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, and it was a horrible romance flick.

Nick Pizzollato’s season 2 is set to première on the 21st of June, and the trailer promises a dark cop show that spirals into the satanic detective genre. Only one other comparison comes into mind when I think of True Detective – Johnny Depp’s The Ninth Gate. It is something about this genre that just stalks your dreams.

If you thought that last season was filled with satanic elements – occult texts that made viewers scour the internet for their meaning – gripping your curiosity, and scaring your panties off, then wait until you hear who is going to be one of season 2’s directors. None other than William Friedkin, the man responsible for 1973’s The Exorcist – you could say that Friedkin and the Devil have a history together.

Collin Farrell and Vince Vaughn

Besides having a trailer for the show, and a release date, we also have a plot synopsis:

A bizarre murder brings together three law-enforcement officers and a career criminal, each of whom must navigate a web of conspiracy and betrayal in the scorched landscapes of California. Colin Farrell is Ray Velcoro, a compromised detective in the all-industrial City of Vinci, LA County. Vince Vaughn plays Frank Semyon, a criminal and entrepreneur in danger of losing his life’s work, while his wife and closest ally (Kelly Reilly), struggles with his choices and her own. Rachel McAdams is Ani Bezzerides, a Ventura County Sheriff’s detective often at odds with the system she serves, while Taylor Kitsch plays Paul Woodrugh, a war veteran and motorcycle cop for the California Highway Patrol who discovers a crime scene which triggers an investigation involving three law enforcement groups, multiple criminal collusions, and billions of dollars.

Trailer screenshot

Like last season, we expect to see how certain individuals in a privileged society stoop down to their lowest animal needs and construct a new meaning to the word psychopath. In its first season we saw Rust Cohle, and Marty Hart fight through the Devil’s traps in Louisiana, only to find out that man is capable of much worse than a demon from hell.

Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch will play the cops this time – and boy, I can’t wait to see Colin Farrell in action; if you haven’t watched In Bruges by now, stop everything you’re doing, and enjoy that gem. Vine Vaughn will play the villain this time around, and my curiosity is tingling. I’m not a fan of his movies, I’m not even a fan of his comedic output, but I am confident in the casting department, and probably Vince Vaughn will shock me exactly like Matthew McConaughey did last season – probably.

Collin Farrel

  • Collin Farrell will play Ray Velcoro a California Highway Patrol officer, and his official descriptions reads ” a compromised detective whose allegiances are torn between his masters in a corrupt police department and the mobster who owns him.” Also his a cocaine addict, and has problems in the anger management department. He was “[…] suspended for sexually exploiting a young woman he pulled over.”.

Vince Vaughn

  • Vince Vaughn will play Frank Semyon ” a career criminal in danger of losing his empire when his move into legitimate enterprise is upended by the murder of a business partner.” The thug turned businessman tries to turn legit, but it seems like Fate has other plans for him. Pizzollato has stated that he wrote the part with Vince Vaughn in mind

Rachel McAdams

  • Rachel McAdams, whom I just adore for her roles in The Time Traveller’s Wife, Sherlock Holmes, and Midnight In Paris, will play the main female lead as Sheriff Ani Bezzirades ” a Ventura County Sheriff’s detective whose uncompromising ethics put her at odds with others and the system she serves.”.

Taylor Kitsch

  • Taylor Kitsch is in charge of portraying Paul Woodrugh ” a war veteran and motorcycle officer for the California Highway Patrol, running from a difficult past and the sudden glare of a scandal that never happened.”. Last time I saw Taylor Kitsch in a movie a sudden urge took a grip of me and I went home to brush me eyes out with acid.

The main story will revolve around the mystery of how Ben Caspar, a 52 year old man, was found dead with occult markings on his chest:

The second season of True Detective will follow the death of Ben Caspar, the corrupt city manager of a fictional California city who’s found brutally murdered amid a potentially groundbreaking transportation deal that would forever change freeway gridlock in the state. Three law enforcement officers from different cities and branches of the government are tasked with finding out who did it. They soon discover their investigation has much broader and darker implications than they initially thought. Caspar’s 52-year-old corpse is found on a lonely stretch of Pacific Coast Highway near Big Sur—satanic symbols etched on his chest. It turns out he had a penchant for rough sex and may have been involved in the occult.

I am more than excited after reading the plot synopsis, and I am eager for June to knock on my door.

How about you? Will you be tuning in on the 21st of June for the show?

David Lynch leaves Twin Peak’s revival

Last year we found out that Showtime is putting back together the old Twin Peaks team for another season – one could hope for another two, even three…sky’s the limit.

Unfortunately on the 5th of April, David Lynch, one of the creators of the original show, announced on Twitter that he won’t be participating any more in the project due to Showtime not paying him enough for the script.

Twitter Feed 2

 Twitter Feed 3

Twitter Feed 4

As a die-hard Twin Peaks fan, this news saddens me greatly. It was even rumoured that for the last year and a half Lynch, and co-creator Mark Frost, had written 9 episodes – the show was set to air in 2016. Even Kyle MacLachlan stated he was eager to return as Agent Dale Cooper under Lynch’s supervision.

This doesn’t mean that the show got cancelled, it only means that one of the greatest directors, and writer, isn’t going to be on the project.

Showtime has since issued a formal response to David’s tweets –

We were saddened to read David Lynch’s statement today since we believed we were working towards solutions with David and his reps on the few remaining deal points. Showtime also loves the world of Twin Peaks and we continue to hold out hope that we can bring it back in all its glory with both of its extraordinary creators, David Lynch and Mark Frost, at its helm.

Showtime Revival

Some members of the original cast took to social media, and YouTube to express their opinions regarding David Lynch not being on the show – a hilarious video can bee seen right here.

David Lynch’s Twin Peaks premièred in 1990 and it was a hit, nation-wide and internationally – the show ended in 1991 without answering anything, and it left us hanging for more ever since. It has garnered a huge cult fan base and it has become a part of pop culture – tons of references to the show, show’s characters, and its creators have been made in commercials, comic books, video games, films, television and even song lyrics.

In 1992 we were blessed with a prequel, that is also an epilogue, called Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me – but it wasn’t enough to satisfy our insatiable thirst.

Twin Peaks Dale Cooper

Twin Peaks tells the story of an FBI Special Agent named Dale Cooper that investigates the murder of Laura Palmer, a homecoming queen with a lot of secrets under her helm. She was loved and known by everybody – it was, after all, a small town where everyone knew each other. The news of her untimely demise spread quickly and loved ones were shocked that Laura was found dead. Soon after the events that crippled Laura’s family with grief, another girl was found – this time not dead, but badly injured. Ronette Pulaski was found on state lines so the town’s Sheriff, Harry S. Truman, was obliged to call in the FBI – this is were Kyle MacLachlan, who plays Special Agent Dale Cooper finally comes in.

It’s an incredible story about murder, betrayal, love, and some utter confusing key elements that we hope Lynch is going to answer in the up-coming season – I’m still hopeful that a deal will be struck with Showtime.

But it isn’t just about the world Lynch and Frost created, neither is it about how great the actors portrayed their roles – it’s about how the show sends you to an eerie world fuelled by mind-boggling events that have no logical answer. Everything is enveloped in Angelo Badalamenti’s beautiful soundtrack, where, at times, it created such an ominous scene that you could feel anxiety creeping up.

Dale Cooper Scene

It’s like all the planets in the universe aligned and made everyone on the crew meet each-other so they could create such a beautiful tale. There is a sweet video about Angelo Badalamenti explaining how he composed Twin Peak’s main theme, with David Lynch by his side telling him his vision – a lonely girl, named Laura Palmer got herself stuck in a dark forest, covered in sycamore trees, and she tried to escape her faith, only to find out that Fate has other plans for her.

You can watch the video right here.

We can only hope that Showtime and Lynch will strike an agreement, because Twin Peaks without David Lynch is like a percolator without its fish.

Star Wars Rebels – the Newest CGI Animated Saga from Disney

Star Wars Rebels in the newest series of CGI animated cartoons from one of the most well known brands in the world. Prominent thanks to the previous smash hits, both on TV and in the cinema, the Rebels saga has brought fresh ingredients to the already successful recipe presented initially more than four decades ago. Little guys and many little girls, were fascinated with the figures from this cinematographic work of art, dreaming to be Luke Skywalker or Princess Leia, and the majority of them wanted a piece of these films for their own fun time.

Star-Wars-Rebels_featured

Compared to the complex collections of stories and large action opportunity offered of The Clone Wars, this cartoon sequel takes an obvious direction through the universe. Taking place 14 years after the story in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and 5 years prior to A New Hope, the CGI animated Star Wars Rebels tells the various adventures of a group of rogue rebels onboard their spacecraft Ghost and who go on an assault against the evil Galactic Empire ships. If all this seems familiar, it was intended to be that way.

New Stuff in the Star Wars Rebels Series

The show also presents a bunch of new fighters for the Star Wars fans. It is focused on the Star Wars Rebel symbol, Kanan Jarrus, a wise Jedi trooper who is leading the Ghost squadron. He is joined by Ezra, a street urchin, who is unacquainted with the use of the Force, Zeb – the commando’s muscles and Chewbacca, Hera – a pilot and proprietor of the Ghost; Sabine – the Mandalorian specialist in explosives and graffiti artist, also the irritated and negativist android known as Chopper. He and Zeb have been created considering the conceptual styles for R2-D2 and Chewbacca, respectively.

Disney’s Star Wars Rebel is following the evil times of the Empire’s malefic expansion, as they hunt and destroy all of the Jedi Knights in combat. Meanwhile, a small revolt is brewing – a kernel for the long run Rebel Alliance.

Having all of the figures from the greatly well known cartoon TV Clone Wars along with some of the liked characters from other sagas, Star Wars Rebels is sure to be the new symbol amongst all age categories. Exclusive head-to-head fights are presented in the series, the costume designs have all been improved, which can allow battlegrounds and specialized effects to be created according to the recent tendencies in the 2D/3D industry. The characters are able to perform as separatist factions or as a Jedi, while this revolutionary visual technology permits brand-new capabilities for the figures

The creators of the soon-to-be-launched video season of Star Wars Rebels say that this is going to be very different from all the past stories that have been before it. In addition, the saga will also be released with its own LEGO toy sets at the same time in all the major stores. By having such a large launch, this not only goes to demonstrate the worldwide reputation of the Lego toys, but also the long term Star Wars fame and the loyalty of fans to the brand’s fame.

Star Wars Rebels has an absolutely original and brand-new design than the past cartoon series, since the creator’s stories have centered the saga and its characters on their original vision. The Clone Wars, which was broadcasted on the cartoon channels, provided the art styles of less of a classical look and more of a cartoonist appearance, something absolutely original from the other series which were in accordance with the Star Wars look.
