Trailer: Branded (2012)



Something for all those people who believe that corporations and ad agencies are the real threat to human existence... This looks a bit like John Carpenter's They Live (1988) on some serious VFX steroids.  Branded looks like another sci-fi swipe at the shiny surfaces of hyperreality and critique of consumerism-as-modern-utopia.  I'm intrigued - and those tentacle things are satisfyingly squirmy!  In common with Invasion of the Body-Snatchers, it would appear the threat is already among us!

  2. Yeah - very strange casting (Max von Sydow, Jeff Tambor and Leelee Sobieski? Okay...) and some hokey looking special effects. Rowdy Roddy, where are you?!
