There's a very good reason why the Mummy very rarely makes an appearance in horror fare. Unlike his more versatile genre relations – vampires and werewolves especially – our bandaged pal has very little that he can really do. Vampires can change form, suck blood and are sexually rampant. Werewolves can also change form, rip people to shreds and have a habit of waking up without clothes in public places. The Mummy does very little but growl and stomp around its tomb - hardly frightening is it? That's pretty much all he does again in Day of the Mummy within his very limited screen time. It's less Day of the Mummy, more A Couple of Minutes of the Mummy.
Meet our hero Jack Wells (William McNamara). He's not only an archaeologist but also a stud. We first see him with two lovely ladies in his hotel room, being pawed at as he wears little else but a towel. His sex appeal does not translate off the screen. It's hard to imagine what appeal he would have to one sexy lady let alone two! One can only assume that there is a shortage of men to appease women at the locality. He's no Indiana Jones.
Get off the streets, lock the doors and prepare for The Purge Anarchy. From the producers of Insidious and Paranormal Activity, The Purge Anarchy comes to Blu-ray and DVD on 17th November 2014 from Universal Pictures (UK). A box-set including both The Purge and The Purge: Anarchy will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on the same date.
The Purge Anarchy sees the mayhem of the purge, where one night a year, all crime including murder is legal, hit the urban sprawl of Chicago. While some purge for kicks, and some purge for revenge, some, like Shane (Zach Gilford, Devil’s Due) and Liz (Kiele Sanchez, Kingdom) just try to survive. When their car is sabotaged on their way home on the eve of the purge they are left stranded, and are relentlessly stalked as they try to find safety... until their paths cross with a well-armed purger known only as ‘Sargeant’ (Frank Grillo, Captain America: The Winter Soldier).
The New Founding Fathers of America invite you to celebrate the annual Purge, with The Purge: Anarchy on Blu-ray and DVD from 17th November from Universal Picture (UK). Pre-order your copy here:http://amzn.to/1vMr0W3. Can you #SurviveTheNight?
For the sequel, Hollywood has drafted in the original's Japanese director Nakata after commercials director Noam Murro and Donnie Darko (2001)'s Richard Kelly declined. Given that 2004's remake of Japanese horror picture Ju-on: The Grudge took the original director on to call the shots, again to much financial success, it must have seemed logical to do the same with The Ring franchise.
A couple of years ago, Nakata directed a creepy little number called Dark Water (2002) which told of a single mum in a new home struggling to keep her child safe from the spookiness going on around them. There was also a lot of water; something that apparently freaks the Bejesus out of the Japanese, however it leaves domestic audiences a little bemused.
When Koji Suzuki wrote his book Ring back in the Nineties I doubt he could have envisaged the beast his story would unleash. In much the same way that the cursed videotape has to be copied for the curse to be transferred it appears also that the film has to be remade too. The original movie, directed by Hideo Nakata, became widely acclaimed as a classic and was recently voted as one of the top five scariest movies of all time. It was inevitable that Hollywood would come a calling and the resulting remake, 2002's The Ring was a worldwide smash and was passable, despite being scripted by Ehren Kruger and being tailored for the PG-13 crowd.
