Schools Out Forever, first film from Rebellion Studios.


Recommended Posts

This looks very similar to that kids vs monsters Shaun of the Dead Jr film that Simon Pegg did a few years ago with Crispy Ian Mills.

This must be set in an alternative reality of Britain where there's significantly more than 7 guns in the entire country. 


You not been to the countryside, then? Place is awash with 12-gauge shotguns.

A lot of people don’t realise how easy it is to get a shotgun licence in the U.K. They really need a good reason not to give you one.

I think the budget for this was £1 million so I'm willing to cut it some slack. If this is successful then we're going to hopefully see some movement on Dredd and Rogue Trooper.

 

They've already got a Dredd TV series in production, I think?  And isn't a Rogue Trooper film in pre-production with Duncan Jones?   Or are they the projects you mean, just not moving fast enough?

Yeah.  They are the projects in talking about but there is currently no news.   They must be able to see me F5ing constantly so the lack of updates is bewildering.

if the film is budgeted at £1 million then I guess the Dredd TV series and Rogue Trooper movie are in early development and they are hoping to secure financing with that work backed up by the "success" from this inexpensive film. Looking at all the updates for Dredd TV and Rogue trooper film I see alot of talk about funding shifting around and pre-preproduction and scripts etc. which says to me funding and streaming isnt sorted yet and they need to sell it.

 

Basically if the film is good and makes good money they can go to investors and say "this is what we did with £1million and a low profile book/IP just imagine the profits we will make with bona fide genre IP and a bit more money".

 

It might work but the film has to be good... The trailer does make it look decent and I am guessing they have sunk some money into that as it is pretty well edited and should get people watching.

 

I hope it works as it would be nice to see a new british studio producing horror/genre films and tv. it is a long time since we had Hammer! (I am referring to classic British Hammer Studios not the dug up/resurrected current brand use which is not the same really, it is only there as a name to grab attention)

ditto yep - I do tend to watch as many "genre" films as I can  (I am still not sure what genre film means as all films are in a genre :D I like horror, I like dystopian, I like dark humour and I love British horror nonsense)

@Clipper Read the Good horror movie thread, a few of us have discovered some decent B movies of late. That I and a few others have rather enjoyed. 

 

 

now I lost touch and but I tread carefully as super modern horror i.e. anything in last 10 years ish I am wary of. I don't really like the "torture porn" style of horror (nothing will beat Hellraiser :D ) or the faux-real stuff that Blair Witch spawned so all of the stuff around supernatural hauntings doesn't float my boat. REC/SAW/errr lady climbing out of the TV (i forget the name) just dont work for me.

 

That makes me sound terribly negative but I love my horror oldstyle - gory like Bad Taste or BrainDead OR slashy like Halloween and NightMare on Elm Street and then into zombies of course (any zombie film almost I even watched the risible Dead Rising Watchtower film) and then into classic Monster stuff like Dracula/Frankenstein/Fright Night/Salems Lot etc.

 

My issues have been that modern horror is often just not as nuanced as the old stuff - I remember Dog Soldiers getting plaudits (yes I know its old) and to me it was veeeery run of the mill and I much much preferred Ginger Snaps.

 

So modern horror I liked would be stuff like Last train to Busan (superb) - The Girl with all the Gifts (VERY flawed with terrible ending but good film) Night eats world (absolutely fantastic French zombie film) - Colin is very good, The film where they are making a zombie film in a warehouse (japanese/korean film with a twist god why can't I remember then name!)... but I love silly stuff like Dead Snow as well...

 

I don't know I tried to look at the horror thread and a lot of it put me off - I do realise I need to get back into proper modern horror and not be a stick in the mud so I will go and have a delve :D

 

EDiT - One Cut of the Dead OF COURSE!

Have you seen Raw? For me that’s the stand out horror film of the last decade.

This actually looks fun. Decent trailer. I watched the trailer for Slaughter House Rulez and immediately knew it would be a piece of shite, not this though, the trailer makes it look worth a watch.

 

Deffo down for renting something that tangentially helps 2000AD material. That comic was a massive part of my life for a few years in the mid 80s, used to get my Nan to cut out the Dredd strips from whatever paper it was they used to appear in, would glue them together at the top to make my own mini comic.

 

Hope it's decent because I'll be definitely streaming.
