Trailer – Psy-Horror Film ‘The Dark Mile’

IMDb

A tense psychological horror-thriller, The Dark Mile blends The Wicker Man and Duel and comes up with a film rich in atmosphere and tension. London couple Louise and Clare (Rebecca Calder and Deirdre Mullins) book a sailing trip in the Highlands to recover from a personal tragedy. The location may be idyllic but soon they are tormented by a black industrial barge that follows them, and by the dysfunctional folk on board… Hints of the occult and paganism point to dark times ahead as the tension mounts. Trailer at the link below.

Trailer – Robot Apocalypse Film ‘Revolt’

IMDb

It never turns out good when you have robots involved. In English with Dutch subtitles, Revolt isn’t a tentpole film by any means but it looks like a great beer and pizza flick. You can categorize this one with Tracey Birdsall’s Rogue Warrior: Robot Fighter (which we covered here) and the new OATS trailer from Neil Blomkamp (which we covered here). We tried translating the Dutch summary that came with the video but failed miserably. SyFy Wire did a better job:

“Pace plays an American soldier in a war-ravaged African country who joins forces with a French foreign aid worker, played by Skyfall’s Berenice Marlohe, “amid humankind’s last stand against a cataclysmic alien invasion.” Their partnership will be tested when they seek refuge from the alien threat.”

Anyhoo, have a look at the video below.

OATS Volume 1 SF Film Trailer (From Neil Blomkamp)

Screenrant

This trailer looks interesting in that it seems like the film is going to break new ground the way District 9 did. PLOT: Neill Blomkamp has created his own studio to help launch the careers of other people looking to jump into political science fiction the way he did back in 2009 with District 9. The teaser for the first Oats Studios project has landed online and it looked exactly like something you could expect from Blomkamp in the best possible way. Video at the link below. Enjoy!

Check Out Online SF Comedy Series ‘Dead Drift’

deaddriftshow.com

So I just finished watching all sixteen episodes of the online SF comedy series ‘Dead Drift’ and I have to say it was pretty good! It takes a couple episodes to get up and running (which is understandable given that the characters are being introduced) but with most episodes coming in at around four minutes, even viewers with a short attention span will like this one.

“Dead Drift” is kinda like Red Dwarf meets youtube. A screwball buddy comedy in SPACE, told by characters interacting via video communication consoles – summed up quite accurately by the show’s logline – “The uptight Captain of a decrepit ship must work with a bumbling mechanic to survive an alien encounter and save Earth from a terrifying ancient evil.”

These two less than stellar representatives of Earth’s USSC (United Solar Space Command, the future equivalent of NASA) set forth on an expedition to survey Saturn’s moon Titan, a mission they’ve been given mostly to keep them out of everyone else’s hair. Along the way they’ll come to rely on the ship’s holographic AI HANNAH to save their asses on more than one occasion. When they get to Titan, they make a monumental discovery that makes their mission one of the most important in human history.  (Dead Drift episode 1, images, and more on the show via the link below.)

Super Relaxing Soundtrack For The Cerulean Moon Game Trailer

Bit Summit

We like the slightly retro style and the super relaxing soundtrack! Created by Nachobeard (is the alter ego of a spanish guy making action games with weird controls.).  Cerulean Moon is a jumpless platformer. In this game you don’t move the main character directly, but instead use your finger to slide the world under the main character’s feet. This control scheme allows for great expressiveness and has significant gameplay implications, making the game feel like a platformer even though there’s no jump button. Check out the video and more at the link below.
