Eric Vespe

Paul Walker - Hours

Paul Walker‘s performance in Hours is a different animal. In the film, he stars as a man who loses his wife during childbirth and must watch over his ailing newborn in a hospital evacuated by the threat of Hurricane Katrina. It’s high concept with a big beating heart, and we’ll speak with writer/director Eric Heisserer about the challenges of crafting it, and the contextual shift left by Walker’s tragic death. Plus, Eric Vespe (aka Quint) from Aint It Cool News will try to convince Geoff to see The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug regardless of how the dragon’s name is pronounced, and we’ve got a fundamental screenwriting question on tap for both Geoff and Heisserer. It’s our penultimate show, so we’re swinging for the fences. You should follow Eric Vespe (@ericvespe), Eric Heisserer (@HIGHzurrer), the show (@brokenprojector), Geoff (@drgmlatulippe) and Scott (@scottmbeggs) on Twitter for more on a daily basis. And, as always, if you like the show (or hate it with seething fervor), please help us out with a review. Download Episode #43 Directly Or subscribe Through iTunes


Why Watch? “Isolated in a place where twisted creatures torment him from the dark, a man desperately tries to find an escape.” From a director we’ve known for a while (Kristoffer Aaron Morgan) and a writer we know as well (Eric Vespe of Ain’t It Cool News fame), comes a bloody fun short starring an actor we follow on Twitter (A.J. Bowen). It’s hauntingly atmospheric and even if you’ve seen it already, you should probably watch it again. The work speaks for itself. What will it cost you? Only 9 blood-soaked minutes. Skip work. Watch more short films.



We’ve reported on The Home before because of the shiver-inducing concept art created by WETA, and it looks like the show might finally be on the road to getting off the road at a secure location where they can start filming frightening things attacking senior citizens. The list of senior citizens now includes Oscar winner (and film nerd favorite) Louise Fletcher, Oscar winner Louis Gossett Jr, Ed Asner, and Fionnula Flanagan (a veteran of stage, screen, and the creepiest character on Lost). Plus, the production is in talks to secure both Brian Cox and Cloris Leachman.



This week on a very special episode of Reject Radio, we spend 5 minutes talking about movie news and another 4 hours talking about Jaws. You’re welcome.



Back in early August we told you about an exciting little horror project known as The Home, which involved a few cool friends of the site. Now that project has some exciting producers — a couple of folks who know how to deliver violence and mayhem.



A friend to the movie geek community and a member of said community are making a movie. And they are bringing Peter Jackson’s WETA team along for effects.
