New casting has been announced for the second year of 2015’s breakout hit Wayward Pines, with reports confirming that Jason Patric will lead the new season of the twisty show. The actor will be playing Dr. Theo Yedlin, “a confident, driven surgeon whose leadership skills will prove invaluable.” Yedlin will find himself awoken in the town of Wayward Pines in the chaos of a rebellion. Other than that, only a vague summer return date was given for season two.
Although not much is known about the mysterious second season of Wayward Pines, since most of the contracts for the first year’s cast have expired due to how long it’s taken to make a new season of the show, it appears that not many of the original surviving characters will make it back for round two.
Debuting last May, Wayward Pines told the story of a weird town in »

Deadline is reporting that Narc star Jason Patric is set to join the second season of the hit thriller series Wayward Pines, which returns this summer from executive producer M. Night Shyamalan (The Visit).
In the new season, which begins soon after the events of the first, Patric is set to play Dr. Theo Yedlin, “a confident, driven surgeon whose leadership skills will prove invaluable to the residents of Wayward Pines.”
The new 10-episode season will see the Wayward Pines residents continue their “battle against the iron-fisted rule of the First Generation.” Jason Patric’s Yedlin “awakens from suspended animation and finds himself in the middle of this rebellion, as he tries to understand what Wayward Pines really is and help preserve the endangered human race.”
“Jason is an incredibly grounded and believable actor,” said Shyamalan. “I’m so excited for audiences to see what he brings to the world of ‘Wayward Pines. »

Last year was a bit of a comeback for M. Night Shyamalan. The director of The Sixth Sense and The Lady in the Water scored some points with audiences and critics with The Visit and Wayward Pines. The latter, ran by Chris Hodge, ran for 10 episodes on Fox and starred Matt Dillon, Shannyn Sossamon, and more. Much of the original cast will not return […]

We may have gotten past the side-eye-inducing drama of American Idol‘s Group Rounds, but rest assured, executive producer Trish Kinane and her mischievous band of editors aren’t going to let this Farewell Season run on the fuel of vocal performances alone.
Preposterous teenage “love stories,” tales of next-level bronchitis (#AintNobodyGotTimeForThat) and the weeping of the lambs all came into play during Wednesday’s final solos (aka The Holding Rooms of the Damned). Show of hands: Did you cringe after Sara Sturm said Lee Jean was like a little brother to her, but Ryan’s voiceover kept pushing them as future lovers anyhow? »

Looking to get her life back on track, desperate mom Streak (Louisa Krause) takes a job as an overnight security guard in a grand but abandoned (The Abandoned being the film’s original title) apartment complex. Trapped with no-one to talk to but asshole colleague Cooper (Jason Patric), Streak is in for a long night.
The awful company and terrible hours aren’t the only thing Streak has to worry about – there’s the sinister homeless guy, the CCTV not working properly and, well, whatever it is that’s lurking in the building’s corridors, stalking her and Cooper from the shadows. Already on edge, Streak is pushed to her limit and beyond by supernatural (?) terrors, both real and »

But it becomes increasingly difficult in wartime, and then the unthinkable happens. Crocicchia plays Tess, the ex-girlfriend of Ehrenreich’s character. Toni Collette, Jason Patric, Jennifer Aniston and Jack Huston… »
Horror cinema’s most enduring cliche involves characters inanely putting themselves in harm’s way, and “The Abandoned” does not dispatch with such familiar silliness. Defined by its protagonist’s preternatural habit of doing the wrong thing at the wrong time, Eytan Rockaway’s directorial debut involves a young woman who takes a job as the nocturnal security guard at a going-to-seed residential complex, only to find that it houses secrets of a most sinister, supernatural order. Despite the capable presence of Jason Patric in a thanklessly one-note role, this generic chiller clings so tightly to conventions that it fails to even moderately raise one’s pulse — and seems destined for a quick trip to the VOD graveyard where so many other similarly chintzy B-movies reside.

It’s a shame when a film’s ending nullifies the preceding hour-plus worth of content, but such are my feelings on Eytan Rockaway’s The Abandoned. I was engaged for most of the its entirety, chilled by the stony isolation of a dilapidated luxury building. Atmosphere and tension go a long way towards the end of Act I and an eerily haunting Act II, but an Act III ending jumps into a realm that simply doesn’t have to be addressed. There’s an extension into a more personal story, one that throws away horror for something more human – more affecting – yet it’s one of the film’s major downfalls. Rockaway pulls the rug out from unsuspecting horror fans in this moment, jumping ship in a way that’s neither emotional, nor powerfully satisfying.

Be Afraid of the Dark: Rockaway’s Familiar Debut Enhanced by Atmospheric Locale
Director Eytan Rockaway makes his directorial debut with the claustrophobic single set horror film The Abandoned (initially titled The Confines). Apart from its undistinguished title already being similar to a 2002 Katie Holmes flick and a 2006 Nacho Cerda thriller, Rockaway adapts from a story co-written by Ido Fluk, a narrative determined exclusively by its impressive venue, a discarded luxury apartment house complex. Though the film features uncustomarily polished performances for an indie horror feature from its two known lead performers, their energy only lasts so long in yet another dwindling account of wayward supernatural forces terrorizing protagonists for vague, unexplained reasons until its final, elucidating frames.

In terms of VOD offerings, 2016 is off to a quiet but stellar start as the genre titles arriving in January include a handful of noteworthy indie horror films that should help ease the post-holiday doldrums.
Two movies I enjoyed during the 2015 Los Angeles Film Festival—The Abandoned and Intruders—are both making their VOD debuts this month and Synchronicity, the neo-noir sci-fi thriller from Magnet Releasing, also arrives on January 22nd. The animated horror comedy Hell and Back is also coming to VOD this month and the new distro shingle SyFy Films is releasing 400 Days this January as well.
