The Screamfest Horror Film Festival is the longest running horror film festival in the United States, now in its 15th year. The festival has been responsible for premiering many now classic horror films such as Paranormal Activity and Feast, both of which are having anniversary screenings at this year's festival. Additionally, Screamfest will be screening the premiere of Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension.
The 2015 festival will run from October 13th through the 22nd in Hollywood, California at the Tcl Chinese 6 Theatres.
Screamfest has an amazing star-studded lineup this year, and if you live in Los Angeles, you owe it to yourself to check out a movie or two, or three or four or all of them. Many of the screenings include discussions with filmmakers such as John and Clu Gulager, James Franco, and more. You can check out the programming and purchase tickets at the festival website Screamfest. »
Like any actor who has been in the business for decades, Keanu Reeves has made some lemons, but one he thankfully avoided was Speed 2: Cruise Control — the follow-up to Speed that took place on a cruise ship, instead of a bus. Reeves was replaced in the sequel by Jason Patric, while Sandra Bullock carried on as a character unfortunate enough to find herself in the same situation again. Reeves went on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and explained why he passed: "It was just a situation in life where I got the script and I read the script and I was like, Ahhh!" Makes sense.And then they reimagine a fast car chase as "A Reasonable Speed" — or when the Fast and the Furious becomes the Slow and the Regulated. »

Amadeus Serafini is an anomaly. Part Christian Slater during his Nicholson phase, with a smidgen of Jason Patric pre Speed 2 and post Lost Boys. Noticeable only for his absence from my reviews, Serafini has floated around on the periphery having little impact for some time. Not only was he inconsequential but also seemed ideal material for the mortuary slab. However episode six has not only made his character more interesting, but a viable candidate for inclusion within this review.
Present in the opening five minutes, Kieran Wilcox has clearly gained some relevance beyond mere eye candy. Riffing on John Carpenter’s Halloween, ‘Betrayed’ starts in the house of Brandon James. Unlike previous attempts this sequence reveals its hand at precisely the right time, by pulling a little Empire Strikes Back Dagobah homage. Not only are these initial moments effective, »

Songs On Screen: All week HitFix will be featuring tributes by writers to their favorite musical moments from TV and film. Check out all the entries in the series here. I saw this movie about ten thousand times when I was a teenager. Maybe more. "Lost Boys" is a classic for we of a certain age. It’s vampire movie where comic books and witty banter play a sizable role, which sounds like all movies now but was an aberration in 1987. This movie has it all. Chinese Food. Cranky Grandpas. Music by Inxs. Long before the dulcet tones of Kiefer Sutherland’s velvety voice made us swoon with “Who are you working for!” he regaled us with, “They’re only noodles, Michael.” The time I had this movie committed to memory has passed, but I will never forget when the Emerson brothers, new arrivals to the sleepy coastal town of Santa Carla, »

*an online screener of this film was provided by the director, Eytan Rockaway. *there are spoilers here. Director: Eytan Rockaway. Writers: Ido Fluk and Eytan Rockaway. Cast: Jason Patric, Louisa Krause and Mark Margolis. The Confines is a film from C+ Pictures. Developed by writer Ido Fluk, the film is a sightseeing adventure through the protagonist's tormented mind. And, some of these horrifying sights cannot be unseen. This title recently had a showing at the La Film Festival and this reviewer was offered an early look. Steeped in tragedy, The Confines creates a creepy tone, in an abandoned building. Similar to The Shining, a central character must confront a mystery, which resides just off screen and within the building's walls. Also, the film highlights some of the strange things which can occur during the witching hour. And, the film's finale offers a surprise twist, which is adequately set up. Overall, »

Receiving its world premiere last week at the 2015 La FilmFest The Confines is one helluva taught thriller. Streak (Louisa Krause) is a young mother who takes a job as a nighttime security guard at a sprawling aged and deserted billionaire home which was never completed (think a more opulent and enormous Winchester House). The place is covered with security cameras so only she and one other person in this case Cooper (Jason Patric) are required to complete this job. Hes a bitter old curmudgeon with a tragic history to play opposite Krauses young beauty certainly not without her own problems. This job is her last chance to find employment before her child is whisked away into the foster system. In other words this »

In The Confines, co-writer and director Eytan Rockaway takes viewers into the most unsettling parts of their imaginations with his intense psychological thriller that co-stars Louise Krause (Ava’s Possessions) and Jason Patric (The Lost Boys, Narc). Rather than give us another standard spookfest, Rockaway uses his story as a metaphor for something bigger, and the result is an effectively creepy tale that utilizes its tenebrous atmosphere and brilliant cast to its fullest.
The Confines follows Streak (Krause), a troubled woman trying to turn her life around in an attempt to keep custody of her daughter. She takes on a nighttime security position at an abandoned building where she is tasked with keeping things running smoothly alongside her new co-worker, Cooper (Patric). Things start off well enough, but as you may have suspected, there’s more than meets the eye at Streak’s new job once she discovers there may »

Over the weekend, first-time feature filmmaker Eytan Rockaway celebrated the premiere of his supernaturally-infused psychological thriller, The Confines, at the 2015 Los Angeles Film Festival. Co-starring Louisa Krause (who recently appeared in the SXSW selection Ava’s Possessions) and Jason Patric (The Lost Boys, Narc), the film follows a young woman who takes on an overnight security job in an attempt at some normalcy in her life; unfortunately, the building she’s overseeing has a sinister past and soon she’s struggling to figure out what’s real and what’s just a figment of her fractured imagination.
During the Fest, Daily Dead had the chance to sit down and speak with Rockaway about what inspired the film, working with both Krause and Patric on The Confines, and his experiences helming a feature for the first time ever.
I really enjoyed how the story of The Confines all plays out by »

To celebrate the '90s classic's big birthday, we dive into Braveheart trivia to find out who nearly took on the role of William Wallace, the role originally earmarked for Sean Connery and which celebs count the Gibson flick among their all-time favourites.
1. Randall Wallace came up with the idea for the film while on holiday in Scotland in 1983. Visiting Edinburgh Castle, he asked a tour guide to tell him the story behind the statues of William Wallace and Robert the Bruce. The guide did just that, and the rest is movie history!

We at Thn collectively love Keanu Reeves and have been immensely excited about his return this year in John Wick. Although not released in UK cinemas until April, Thn have been lucky enough to have already seen it and we can tell you that it is all kinds of awesome.
John Wick was so brilliant that it has awoken my long-forgotten admiration for Mr Reeves and compelled me to revisit his extensive back catalogue immediately. As readers of previous instalments will remember Keanu Reeves was one of my teenage girl crushes alongside Christian Slater. Given that I was a teen during the early noughties these choices might seem a little odd to some of you. Me and my friend though had different tastes to our more mainstream friends – and my choices make a little more sense than Val Kilmer and cartoon character Gambit. Keanu celebrated 50 last year but doesn’t »

Early in Brian Michael Bendis' career in comics, before Marvel gave him the chance to reinvent Spider-Man, Daredevil, the Avengers and the X-Men, he wrote a terrific autobiographical comic called "Fortune and Glory," about his struggles to get his early film noir-style comics adapted into movies. He runs through the usual inside showbiz stories of near-misses and ridiculous studio notes, but is also very open about how much he had to learn about the differences in writing for the page and the screen. (He's embarrassed to realize, for instance, that much of his dialogue is too dense to come out of the mouths of actors and sound natural.) Bendis has been on a much longer and more convoluted journey with "Powers," the comic he and Michael Avon Oeming created about a pair of human homicide detectives in a world overrun by superhumans, and which debuts today as the first »

If you've yet to hear of the PlayStation Network exclusive series Powers, the behind the scenes story is just as interesting as anything going on in the show. Originally starring Jason Patric and set to hit FX back in 2012, the show was eventually recast and reshot in 2014. Sharlto Copley took on the lead role of homicide detective Christian Walker who investigates cases involving superheroes and supervillains in the aptly titled division, Powers.

It has been over a year since any news has emerged for the psychological thriller The Confines. Since pre-production in 2014, the film has moved into post-production, with principal photography completed. Recently, a trailer has been released for the film, courtesy of Darclight Films. As well, the film stars Jason Patric (Narc), Louisa Krause and Mark Margolis. Fans of the supernatural or of twisted characterizations can preview the film here. For more on the story, two security guards work through the night shift. But, something haunts this luxury apartment building. Streak (Krause), a rookie on the job, begins to see bizarre things in the hallways and in the basement. Soon, she is questioning herself, until her visions become to strange to ignore or rationalize away. The first trailer for The Confines is a mysterious one. The antagonist is kept off frame as Streak does her best to cope with a supernatural haunting. »
