An Interview with Director Liam O’Donnell, Beyond Skyline

An Interview with Director Liam O'Donnell, Beyond Skyline

After co-writing and producing Skyline in 2010, Liam O’Donnell spent the better half a decade working on his directional debut; the well-received follow-up, Beyond Skyline. Attack from Planet B talked with Liam about his experience on both movies, and the challenges associated with making a hybrid genre film.

“In the first cut that I showed the producers, during the end fight scene – the martial art scene – they were like, this is just alien knife porn!”

Beyond Skyline (2017, USA) Signature DVD Review

Beyond Skyline (2017)

Released in 2017, seven years after it’s predecessor Skyline, the aptly titled Beyond Skyline sees Liam O’Donnell take over the directorial reigns from Greg and Colin Strause, in his directional debut.

Beyond Skyline was unwarranted. It is a sequel no one expected, and perhaps, a sequel no one wanted. Even as someone that appreciated the first movie, Beyond Skyline went beyond (pun intended) my expectations entirely. It works because it is so wild…so out there… Beyond Skyline is an experience.

“Survive? We did a hell of a lot more than survive… We evolved.”

Torso (1973, Italy) Shameless Blu-ray Review

Torso (1973) Shameless Blu-ray

I corpi presentano tracce di violenza carnale; literally translated as The Bodies Bear Traces of Carnal Violence, is an Italian giallo directed by Sergio Martino. Released in the United States as Torso in 1973, Martino’s artistic direction combined feverish sexuality and visually striking violence into a film that predates the American slasher subgenre. Perhaps then, the slasher owes a lot more to the Italian giallo than it is usually given credit for?

“Enter… if you dare the bizarre world of the psychosexual mind.”

Premutos: Lord of the Living Dead (1997, Germany) Shock-O-Rama DVD Review

Premutos: Lord of the Living Dead (1997)

With Premutos: Lord of the Living Dead, Olaf Ittenbach has managed to create a movie that doesn’t take itself too seriously; instead opting to bring humour to the violence portrayed onscreen. It is grosser, nastier, gorier than most splatter films, and likely done on a much smaller budget too. If you enjoy video violence exaggerated to the extreme, and your humour as black as the night sky, look no further than this fallen angel.

“For centuries, the secret of an ancient legend was kept hidden. It contained the legacy of the mystery of life and death. It was the book about the resurrection of the anti-god Premutos.”
