We're not really sure what Eliza Dushku's new film Locked In is about. But judging from the trailer, if you have sex with her you can talk to the dead! Plus awesome new shorts and behind-the-scenes on Monsters.

Locked In

Suri Krishnamma's Locked In is shrouded in mystery. We're still not sure what Lester from The Wire is doing in it, but he seems to be some sort of spiritual guide that ferries spirits through Eliza's downstairs parts? Maybe, or maybe she can talk to children in comas that she ran down in her car. Here's the synopsis from imdb, what do you think?

The story moves through the lives of two fragile yet determined people and maps a private geography of love, loss and ultimate redemption. Josh leaves his advertising career at its peak, everyone wants either to be him or to have him. Then he walks away from it all, the money, recognition and the life. A car accident will leave his daughter in a strange coma and when everyone has given up she starts communicating with him, or is he going mad?

Seriously, any explanations would be greatly appreciated.

Upside Down

Last week we showed you poster images from the new scifi romance film Upside Down about a pair of star-crossed lovers living in worlds sandwiched on top of one another. The main character, who is desperately trying to reach the girl in the upside down world next door played by Kirsten Dunst, sent a set pic to Jim Sturgess online with a little note. Can't wait to see the first footage from this!


Here's what Sturgess said in his note:

I am just coming to the end of an amazing but completely exhausting shoot out here in Montreal. There's been a lot of bumps and bruises along the way but I feel like it has all been worth it! It's hopefully gonna be a really unique and exciting film!



Check out this amazing behind the scenes look at Gareth Edwards's Monsters. If you haven't heard about this indie film yet check these pics and clip. The movie takes place after a space ship crash-landed in Mexico, resulting in the entire country getting quarantined. Fortunately for audiences, we get to watch two travelers try and make their way through the Monster-filled Mexico. Edwards recently released this little clip explaining how he made Monster for such little money.

This image was lost some time after publication, but you can still view it here.

The Four Twenty-One

The tag line for The Four Twenty-One pretty much sums up the film — it's "the truth about aliens on our planet, and the men who kill them." The film was a labor of love for director Michael J. Gonzales and basically tells the tail of a small group of alien-killers, raised to execute deadly aliens from a very early age. Here's the trailer:

Available on DVD at their website.



We're exceptionally curious about this short film Defoe — it's about an astronaut who crash lands on a unknown planet. We'd say more but we don't want to spoil the ending. Here's the official synopsis and trailer.


When an astronaut is washed up on the beach of a distant planet after an unscheduled crash landing its more than a slight shock to the system. Deserted and alone on the beach he is literally devastated. Apart from the belongings kept in a pocket on his suit he has nothing. All he can do is wander and dream of getting home; Until he is stumbled upon by an inhabitant. In a moment of panic the astronaut strikes out at the stranger. Killing him with its own gun. He's gone from a shipwrecked traveler to a murderer. Now on the run his thoughts have gone from getting home to getting away from his hunters.


Twitch Film called it "Impeccably well done and shot it is light on dialogue but the visuals are amazing." To find out more, check out the website, Be warned that if you click on the pictures, the big twist will be ruined for you. We recommend not doing it! But still check out the film regardless.
