Monty Python reunion: Eric Idle on his late friend Robin Williams

11 November 2014 11:00 AM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

While Monty Python member Eric Idle was directing last summer's reunion shows, he made sure to include a small role in the Michael Palin-fronted "Blackmail" sketch that could be played by a different famous Python fan each night. That roll call of guest talent would ultimately include both Simon Pegg and Mike Myers, who was also the guest performer during the Pythons' last performance at London's massive O2 arena. That the Austin Powers star would agree to appear in such a tiny part speaks to the huge and enduring influence of Monty Python's Flying Circus and the subsequent films created by Idle, »

The Pictures Got Small: Sanchez Unwisely Revisits Found Footage

The co-director of 1999’s The Blair Witch Project, Eduardo Sanchez, returns to the fold of the found footage genre with Exists, replacing witches with Bigfoot, and a gaggle of clichéd ignoramuses that fail to stand out as anything other than slightly typified personalities. The fact that Sanchez’s film plays like one more forgettable entry in a cost effective indie genre is of significant note considering it was his original success that spawned a whole generation of mimicry, which he’s now become a part of himself. With nary an original flourish in its little brain, despite some fleeting moments of genuine creepiness, the distraction of its mechanics work as resolutely against its effectiveness like a majority of all films in this vein, wherein cameras stay indefatigably in action no matter the dangers faced, and obvious editing and musical cues interfere »

Exists Review

19 October 2014 10:01 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Between Bobcat Goldthwait’s Willow Creek and Eduardo Sánchez’s Exists, Bigfoot is having quite a horrifying year. In Willow Creek, the legendary monster goes the “mumblecore” route for some simmering, slow-burn chills, while Exists goes full creature-feature by bringing an animalistic primitiveness to the hairy best. Defying most horror rules, Sánchez wastes no time introducing in Sass to horror audiences that are yearning for some backwoods survival horror. As far as found footage scares go, Sánchez gains major points for bringing intensity in a fast and furious manner, never bullshitting his fans with cheap decoys or distorted jump-scares. Exists delivers Exactly as prompted, being a polar opposite to Goldthwait’s subtle tension. If Bigfoot is your jam yet twenty-minute-long-tent-rustlings aren’t your thing, go with Exists on this one – you’ll thank me while you’re washing your blood-soaked clothes.

The plot of Exists isn’t very complicated, nor »

Foreign Films ‘Breakup Buddies,’ ‘Bang Bang’ Solid In Specialty Box Office Bows

5 October 2014 1:02 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Foreign films and a doc scored well in the Specialty arena this weekend. That isn’t something I get to write very often but it’s a pleasure when it happens. China Lion‘s Breakup Buddies, Tribeca Film‘s music doc Nas: Time Is Illmatic and Bollywood heavyweight Bang Bang all pulled in solid numbers when they debuted this weekend among U.S. speciality films.

By contrast, the weekend’s most notable U.S. indie debut, Jason Reitman‘s Men, Women & Children, took a dive in its first limited runs, while Radius-twc’s music documentary Keep On Keepin’ On again lived up to its name, gathering momentum in its third week.

That so-so start came even though Paramount seemingly did everything right for Men, Women & Children after a premiere at Toronto. The company created a marketing campaign that targeted both social networking-savvy young audiences and the traditional movie-going crowd. The »

New on Blu-ray and DVD: Brick Mansions! Pumpkinhead! & More!

9 September 2014 12:12 PM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

With World's Greatest Dad and God Bless America (review), Bobcat Goldthwait has proven himself to be something of an auteur. Certainly, he's an uncompromising storyteller, unafraid of ruffling a few feathers with controversial content.

Enter his newest film, Willow Creek, a handheld horror affair about a search for bigfoot. An unexpected twist, but a film that's garnered great buzz, so it's an easy shot for most anticipated release of the week (sorry, Captain America).

Onwards!

Trailer For Eduardo Sanchez's Exists

27 August 2014 1:40 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Bobcat Goldthwait's Willow Creek was released not long ago, but should your appetite for found-footage Bigfoot movies not yet have been sated, here comes another one. Exists is the latest work of The Blair Witch Project's Eduardo Sanchez, and a new trailer has just arrived. Anyone who caught Exists at FrightFest over the weekend will notice that the first 30 seconds or so of that clip isn't actually in the finished film. So that's one for the next round of Trailer Cheats. But otherwise it's a decent primer for a film that starts off in pretty conventional cabin-in-the-woods territory but quickly gets far more intense and interesting."I’ve wanted to make a Bigfoot movie since I was a little kid," Sanchez told Empire just after the release of his excellent Lovely Molly. "I’ve always been curious about the way Bigfoot has kind of turned into a comic character now. »

Bigfoot Attacks In Trailer For Exists

26 August 2014 2:43 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Found footage Bigfoot movies must be a genre I never knew existed, since two movies on the subject have come along within a short time of each other. First up was Bobcat Goldthwait's Willow Creek, and now we have Exists, from The Blair Witch Project co-director Eduardo Sanchez. While the Bigfoot factor is new and different, everything else in the below trailer seems pretty generic, especially the plot of a group of  young people going to a cabin in the woods only to party, only to end up fighting for their lives. Check out the trailer below. Released: October 24th »

Big Foot Exists! [Trailer]

25 August 2014 4:55 PM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

So if Bobcat Goldthwait's Willow Creek is the "spiritual successor" to The Blair Witch Project, what the hell is Eduardo Sánchez's Exists?

Sánchez is best known for co-directing the found footage movie that kicked off a new style of filmmaking and though he's continued to work since The Blair Witch Project's release 15 years ago, he hasn't managed to meet the same amount of success as his debut. Now he's at it again, with more found footage, and this time tackling Big Foot.

I really liked Goldthwait's movie and must admit I'm not really interested in another take on the subject, especially one with a similar [Continued ...] »

FrightFest: The Guest checks in

22 August 2014 7:53 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Screen reports from the opening night of Film4 FrightFest which saw the UK premiere of Adam Wingard’s The Guest.

Film4 FrightFest veteran Andy Nyman was keen to highlight that - despite its new home at the Vue Leicester Square - FrightFest was going to be exactly the same in its 15th edition.

“All the things you know and love are exactly the same. You are still going to have to queue endlessly for a piss, probably miss the beginning of the film you want to see,” joked Nyman.

Nyman was given the tricky task of following Bobcat Goldthwait, who introduced last year’s festival, and passed with flying colour thanks to a series of gently mocking insults, including the new style of splitting the Main Screen programme across three screens.

“You may or may not know that they have divided the screens into groups: the Horror Channel screen is for goths; Discovery Screens 1 and 2 are for virgins »

Katie Holmes is a vigilante serial killer in the trailer for Miss Meadows

20 August 2014 11:54 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Miss Meadows, played by Katie Holmes, has found the perfect disguise when she’s not moonlighting as a murderous vigilante. She plays a sweet and wholesome elementary school teacher. Perfect hair, smile, and a Sunday dress; she’s a killer alright. Watching the trailer for Miss Meadows it reminded me a lot of Bobcat Goldthwait’s God Bless America, but without the funny satire. This dark looking drama might be a little too formula for some, but this one interests »

An emotional 'Ask Drew' looks back at the life and work of the great Robin Williams

13 August 2014 4:40 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Suicide is a permanent solution to temporary problems." - Robin Williams, "World's Greatest Dad" This is a very emotional "Ask Drew." This is, I would suspect, the closest you're ever going to see to me losing it on camera completely. I guess I shouldn't have been surprised when there was a Robin Williams question, since it's still so fresh and so raw for so many people, but I couldn't have known just how hard it would be to talk about him. I mean, I have stared at the blinking cursor on my blank document page for almost two days now, grappling with one question:  how in the hell do you even remotely begin to sum up someone as huge as Robin Williams? We could start from the personal angle. I could tell you about the occasional e-mails I got from him when I was at Ain't It Cool, or the »
