Film Review: ‘The Harvest’

30 July 2014 5:59 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Horror movies have given us no shortage of overprotective mothers over the years, though Samantha Morton takes that archetype to new extremes in “The Harvest,” a powerful coming-of-ager with the potential both to scar and strengthen the psyches of an entire generation — if only it could find a distributor as daring as the folks who made it. Pitting two impressive teenage newcomers against an as-yet-unseen side of Morton creepy enough to rival Kathy Bates in “Misery,” this deeply unsettling child-endangerment dramamarks director John McNaughton’s welcome left-field return to the bigscreen after an absence of nearly a dozen years.

Always a bit of an outsider owing to his gift for blending dark humor and taboo subjects, McNaughton made his name with “Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer” before entering the freeze-frame hall of fame with “Wild Things,” but has worked only in television since 2001. Though hardly an obvious project with which to return, »

Radcliffe goes dark in Horns trailer

30 July 2014 8:28 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Sporting a flawless American accent, Daniel Radcliffe goes dark in the first full trailer for Horns.  Radcliffe stopped by Comic-Con last week to debut the trailer to the hordes of fans in Hall H who gathered to see theHarry Potter star make his first trip to Comic-Con.  The actor told the crowd that he has made a concentrated effort to pursue projects that are different from the wizarding franchise that made him famous. 

“There may have been, and I’m sure there still are, a lot of people who just see me as Harry, but it only takes one director to not,” he said during his panel. “I’ve been lucky so far in that I’ve had four or five directors who have taken a chance on me and wanted to see me do something different.”

The director taking a chance on him in Horns is Alexandre Aja (High Tension »

Rlj/Image Entertainment is getting prepared to make fans ecstatic, when they unleash The Twilight Zone: The Complete ’80s Series onto DVD August 26th. The updated take on Rod Serling’s classic and beloved series lasted three seasons, from 1985 to 1989 and showcased episodes like two of my favorites, the heartbreaking William Sanderson (Blade Runner, Sometimes They Come Back)-led episode “The Call“, and Wes Craven’s “Shatterday” episode with Bruce Willis.

“Travel into the fifth dimension once again with The Twilight Zone, testing the limits of reality and exploring the mysteries of the universe.  Airing from 1985 to 1989, this critically acclaimed anthology series carried on the legacy of the original Rod Serling program and attracted a brand new audience of fans.

Watch: Daniel Radcliffe Causes Chaos in First Us Trailer for 'Horns'

25 July 2014 4:40 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Anyone who has been worried about Daniel Radcliffe shedding his Harry Potter image will have their concerns washed away. Or more accurately, they'll be scorched from the Earth as the British actor throws on a grizzly American accent and a pair of devilish accessories in Horns, an adaptation of the novel of the same name by Joe Hill, son of master of suspense Stephen King. Radcliffe seems incredible in this film that has a truly twisted sense of humor and an interesting mystery at the center as Radcliffe plays a man trying to figure out who killed his girlfriend (Juno Temple) as he causes chaos in a North Pacific town. Watch it! Here's the first Us trailer for Alexandre Aja's Horns, originally from MTV: Alexandre Aja (Piranha 3D) directs Horns with a script from Keith Bunin ("In Treatment") based on Joe Hill's novel of the same name.

From Wizard To Demon: Daniel Radcliffe Gets Devilish In Creepy New 'Horns' Poster

24 July 2014 11:54 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Radcliffe plays a man accused of his girlfriend's murder who begins to sprout demonic horns.

Daniel Radcliffe is dipping back into the supernatural yet again to star in the upcoming horror drama Horns.

The film is based on the book of the same name by Joe Hill – the acclaimed author and son of Stephen King – and follows Ignatius Parrish (Radcliffe), a young man who wakes up after a drinking binge to discover horns growing out of his forehead.

Ignatius, though never charged, is widely believed to be guilty of murdering his girlfriend one year ago, and the horns do not help him gain standing in the local community.

Daniel Radcliffe gets dark in the new Horns poster

24 July 2014 1:22 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Daniel Radcliffe is no stranger to making movies with a darker tone (many of the Harry Potter movies were very dark, The Woman in Black was a horror) but his upcoming film Horns is taking a turn down an even more twisted path.

This Halloween we will see Radcliffe with literal horns growing out of his head on the big screen, but if you can’t wait until then, check out the latest poster for the film that was released on author Joe Hill's official Tumblr just in time for Comic-Con.

The film, based on the popular novel by Joe Hill (son of horror genius Stephen King), follows Ig Perrish, who wakes up with horns growing out of his head following the mysterious murder of his girlfriend (played by Juno Temple). That’s all evident in this poster, with Radcliffe and his horns looking like an undead version of Mr. »

That was a fun panel for "24," even if there was zero news. Now? It's time for "Under the Dome." Last year, the show was a smash hit for CBS. This summer, ratings have been plummeting on a weekly basis.  Don't expect anybody to care about those ratings, but expect much concern about The Pig Flu and Yearbook Girl and other recent twists. On to the live-blog. 11:19 a.m. We're kicking things off. Many, many people left the room after "24." And the moderator wants to call this "a runaway summer hit." sigh.  11:19 a.m. Our panel: Neal Baer, Mike VogelRachelle Lefevre (dressed as Starbuck!), Alexander Koch (dressed as... something), Eddie Cahill and Colin Ford. 11:21 a.m. "We know the end of this season, but we won't tell you," teases Neal Baer. They just finished production. Baer promises we're going to see more meanness from Big Jim soon. »

The Feminist Horror Author You Need to Read Immediately

23 July 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The best horror writer of the 20th century you've probably never heard of was a British woman who looked like a benign but mildly dotty Hogwarts teacher. But do not miss the occult mischief behind those 1980s mom-glasses; in a fairly standard Angela Carter story, Harry Potter would be mauled to death by a werewolf before a pan-species initiation of Hermione’s pubescent sexual power. She made things weird like that, which is why she was great. Carter, however, was not a horror writer in the same sense as Anne Rice or Stephen King; the bulk of her work is classified as magical realism (a made-up, jerk-off genre that permits English departments to acknowledge the existence of the human imagination), but her most celebrated book is a high gothic collection of short stories called The Bloody Chamber that you should read immediately if the genre holds any appeal for you. »

Under the Dome: Season Two Ratings

22 July 2014 11:27 PM, PDT | | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Last summer, Under the Dome was a big success for CBS. How will season two do in the ratings? Will this Stephen King TV show be renewed for a third season or will it be cancelled instead? Time will tell.

Under the Dome revolves around residents of Chester's Mill in Maine after a large transparent dome cuts them off from the world. Those on the inside but work to survive with limited resources and rising tension. The large cast includes Mike Vogel, Rachelle Lefevre, Natalie Martinez, Britt Robertson, Alexander Koch, Nicholas Strong, Colin Ford, Mackenzie Lintz, Jolene Purdy, Aisha Hinds, Dean Norris, Eddie Cahill, and Karla Crome.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings »
