Skyline - Cast and Crew Interview Footage
By James Whittington, Saturday 20th November 2010

Skyline OnesheetSkyline has just hit UK cinemas and to give you an idea of what it took to get it to the screen the footage below interviews some of the cast and crew. Although short in duration its an interesting glimpse on the casting process and how different actors view their characters.

Meanwhile for those of you who haven’t heard of this movie, this is what its all about:

After a late night party, a group of friends are awoken in the dead of the night by an eerie light beaming through the window. Like moths to a flame, the light source is drawing people outside before they suddenly vanish into the air. They soon discover an extraterrestrial force is swallowing the entire human population off the face of the earth. Now our band of survivors must fight for their lives as the world unravels around them.

The film stars Eric Balfour, David Zayas, Donald Faison, Brittany Daniel Neil Hopkins and newcomers Scottie Thompson and Crystal Reed and promises to be a terrifying journey into our fear of the unknown and a high-velocity, special effects bonanza with plenty of tension. Oh, and remember, don't look up!

Humanoids from the Deep to rise on Blu-ray
Posted on Monday 26th April 2021
Humanoids from the Deep

Noyo's a sleepy little place, where nothing much happens. So why are people being attacked and killed by THINGS that come out of the water? The answer involves pollution and mutated sea life that's developed a taste for death. As the 'orrible humanoids lay siege to Noyo, it's up to the great Doug McClure (The Land That Time Forgot; Warlords of Atlantis), to put a stop to their murderous rampages.

Do you believe in Urban Legends?

UrbanLegend3D_800x

Camp fire stories aren't real - are they? Someone thinks they are and, in Urban Legend, they pick on their victims using those apparently apocryphal yarns as a template. The killing continues in Urban Legends: Final Cut, with a new killer - and new inspirations. And if your nerves can handle it, Urban Legends: Bloody Mary places a fresh, terrifying, spin on some old, old tales.

Even better than listening to spooky old stories ("...the call is coming from INSIDE the house..."), these three films are modern slasher classics. 88Films present the complete Urban Legend trilogy on UK Blu-ray for the first time, completely uncut.
