Screen Media Films, I think.
At least it is getting a HD release. If it ends up being good people can just import if they want to go that route.
Dope. Looking forward to this release.
Final theatrical trailer:
This trailer looks good. I am definitely interested now!
This is playing at the Alamo Draft House for 5 days April 8th - 12th. I'm all over that shit.
Damn. Not at the SF Alamo.
That's a shame....... as I just noticed the Alamo in Houston has updated their calendar. On April 7th not only are they showing the VOID.......they're making it a double feature with In the Mouth of Madness!!! That is just fucking ridiculously awesome. Fingers crossed I can convince the wife to make the trip or be cool with me heading down solo.
What a double-feature. I keep checking the New Mission calendar to see if The Void pops up--no luck yet. I think I will just send an email.
Can't wait to see this
every year it seems there are less new horror films that interest me and even less that have replay value.i am definitely looking forward to this one though.i hope it lives up to expectations.
Looks like there is one theater in SF showing The Void. Even better, it's opening at one theater in Phoenix and I will be in Mesa for the weekend, so I will be trying to get my buddy to go, as I will be sans automobile.
I have now seen this movie so I want to manage expectations here. The new trailer is remarkable, but the film is not as good as the trailer. Don't get me wrong. The film is good, but don't go in expecting it to be awesome. I say this as a fan of Astron 6.
The early clips showed gore and whatnot but something must have happened during filming. Everything ended up being rather dark and obscured the detail. Really sucks because these guys are talented but tackled this kind of film too soon.
I haven't seen it yet so this could change when I do but they did hire a professional director of photography so I doubt anything happened during filming, and since it takes place in a hospital where the power goes out the setting of the film already is going to be dark and I assume it was shot/digitally colour graded to match the setting. From the trailer it's not brightly lit, but it also looks like they were going the route of a more natural lighting scheme instead of Hollywood over-lit.
Nope, it wasn't even appropriately lit for a lights out scenario, with all due respect. I wasn't the only one at the screening who thought this so this is not my imagination. But hey, if they were going for lights out realism, fine then, they definitely achieved it.
Honestly, I still think it is a cool film, especially given its budget. However, there is still a way to light dark scenes. These guys are great at gore and focus on that kind of stuff, so I find it hard to imagine that they endeavored for effects that they had no intention of showing off.
playing at the local micro theater. No way can I see it this weekend, but maybe sometime next week...
I enjoyed it, didn't make a lot of sense to be honest, but I think it was intentional to go the ambiguous route, but the effects work was great, some wonderful physical effects, acting was good. Will purchase the blu when released.
I watched it on VOD last night and didn't see any issues with it looking too dark or appearing to be under lit, seemed appropriate for the setting/location of the film (dark hallways, flares, etc), so I'm wondering if the projector bulb was running a bit dim since you said you saw it in a theatre?
As for the film, I enjoyed it although was definitely not blown away. Agree what others are saying in that it's a bit of a mess plot-wise, but visually is interesting and creepy and the practical effects were great and well designed although I did find them underused than what I was anticipating. I thought it riffed on Hellraiser more than Carpenter or Lovecraft too, like the trailers seemed to lead more towards those influences. Overall, worth a watch but I'd say give it a rent before purchasing for sure.
