As mentioned last week, we had the chance to talk to the cast and crew of the new post-apocalyptic thriller, The Collapsed on location at Toronto’s great video store, Eyesore Cinema, including director Justin McConnell. As you’ll see in the video, everyone was very forthcoming and great to talk to.
Thanks to our friends at Anchor Bay Canada, everyone from The Collapsed and the fine folks at Eyesore Cinema. Check out our interview after the jump and then order your copy of The Collapsed here.
Tuesday saw the DVD release of The Collapsed, the acclaimed post-apocalyptic thriller from director Justin McConnell. Without giving too much a way, the film involves a family of four making their way out of a devastated city, on the way to the country and hopefully safe haven. Along the way, something or someone may be after them.
There’s more to the film, but I’ll let director McConnell explain things more when we post our interview with the director and members of his cast and crew, conducted at Toronto’s Eyesore Cinema earlier this week. We’ll have that up in a few days, but in the meantime you can check out the trailer for the film and some photos of the event, courtesy of Biff Bam Pop’s own Corina Hitchcock.
A few of us Biff Bam Poppers have watched the new Xavier Gens film The Divide lately, and I think we’ve all come away with different opinions on the post-nuclear war flick staring Michael Biehn, Lauren German, Milo Ventimiglia and Rosanna Arquette. With the film fresh in my mind (and my eyeballs), I thought I’d give you my ambivalent take on it.
The Divide finds eight people living (trapped?) in a fall out shelter underneath their apartment building, one created and maintained by the buildings superintendent, Mickey (Michael Biehn). As the days go by, we watch the group dynamic unravel as our survivors (victims?) realize that there is no way out for them. What comes next is murder, dismemberment, rape and more unpleasantness. Suffice to say, The Divide isn’t for everyone.
