We Have Mixed Feelings About Neil Marshall Remaking Troll Hunter

The Norwegian flick Troll Hunter by André Øvredal is hands down one of the most creative (and beautiful) found-footage films we've ever seen.

Game of Thrones Week 9: Bloody Hell!

Last night's Game of Thrones was the only episode thus far to be almost completely self-contained and free of "meanwhiles." But that didn't mean it was simple.

Lots of movies say they have everything, but then turn out only to have a subset of everything. Only Doomsday, Neil Marshall's lurch into a plague-blighted future Scotland, actually has everything.

There are Serbian dog-food commercials that would have made more sense to me than Doomsday, the quarantined-country-reverts-to-barbarism epic that opens today. It starts out as an engaging action-horror blend with a nice touch of future dystopia (and huge servings of gore), and then slowly unravels until the ending is… » 3/14/08 2:54pm 3/14/08 2:54pm

Girl-On-Girl Swordfight In The Plague Lands

First director Neil Marshall had to go around telling everybody Doomsday isn't a zombie movie, and now after you watch this new clip, he'll have to explain it's not a swords-and-barbarians flick either.
