Exclusive: Director Hank Braxtan Talks New Creature Feature Unnatural

3 September 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | | See recent Dread Central news »

With narrative shades reminiscent of 1979’s Prophecy, an old-school practical effects approach, a grueling location shoot in Alaskan winter climes, and a cast that includes 1990’s "Twin Peaks" bombshell Sherilyn Fenn, our interest was piqued from the onset for Unnatural...

Now, at long last, we’re finally able to bring you word on director Hank Braxtan’s recently wrapped creature feature. Helmed by Braxtan (whose upcoming psychological horror feature Chemical Peel is due out via Lionsgate this coming October), Unnatural was produced by Ron Carlson.

Cinematography is by Marc Carter and editing is by filmmaker Mike Mendez (Big-Ass Spider). The film was shot this past January and February on location in Fairbanks, Alaska, and in addition to Fenn, the cast includes James Remar (“Dexter”), Ray Wise (Jeepers Creepers 2, “Twin Peaks”), Graham Greene (The Green Mile), Q’orianka Kilcher (“Sons of Anarchy”), and Ivana Korab.

Defiance season 2 episodes 12 & 13 review: All Things Must Pass & I Almost Prayed

1 September 2014 1:31 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Defiance concludes its second season with an unsatisfying finale. Despite engaging characters, the show still hasn't found its feet...

This review contains spoilers.

2.12 All Things Must Pass & 2.13 I Almost Prayed

With undue haste Syfy rushed to the end of Defiance, showing the final four stories in just two weeks. I'm not sure why, but it probably doesn’t bode well for a third season, I’d suggest. Episode twelve splices directly into the previous story, where Irisa has stabbed Tommy, and poor Nolan is dragging him through the winter woodland that surrounds Defiance.

I’ve had issues with Tommy’s character all season, and here it all came to a head. Because a large amount of All Things Must Pass was occupied with making him seem a more sympathetic character, back-filing unseen events only then to let him die seemed like a waste. It felt like that three week homework »

A&E Cancels Longmire

30 August 2014 8:22 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In what might be considered a strange move on the part of TV network A&E, the crime drama Longmire has been cancelled at the end of its third season. It’s strangeness is rooted in the fact that this decision leaves the channel with very little in the way of scripted drama – something it had made a very conscious step toward, some time ago. Having now disposed of Glades and Those Who Kill, however, the ending of Longmire will leave A&E with only Bates Motel and the upcoming remake of The Returned.

Longmire had been a very popular part of A&E’s lineup, being based on Craig Johnson’s Walt Longmire Mysteries series of novels. The show saw Wyoming county sheriff Walt Longmire return to work following the death of his wife, and investigate major crimes while running for re-election. It starred Robert Taylor, Katee Sackhoff, Lou Diamond Phillips, »

Podcast Extra: The Trouble with Diane Keaton

17 August 2014 5:15 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

In this free flowing conversational extra [23 minutes]  Joe Reid tells Nick, Katey and Nathaniel  about where his devotion to Diane Keaton has taken him: to the "nothing" of And So It Goes (2014). We discuss the dangers of "comfort zones" and working with paychecks.

The conversation drifts to Edge of Tomorrow and Broadway musicals including Into the Woods. But mostly the 1989 & 1990 Oscar ceremonies. We always end up at Oscars. It's a sickness! Name checked in this extra episode: Emily Blunt, John Lithgow, Graham Greene, Michael Douglas, John Lithgow, Annette Bening, The Silence of the Lambs, Reba McEntire, Michelle Pfeiffer, and the musical stylings of Jasmine Guy

You can listen at the bottom of the post or wait till it shows up on iTunes (which usually takes about a day). Continue the conversation in the comments. We'd love to hear your comments on how it's going with Diane Keaton and your memories of the 89 and 90 Oscars, »

Defiance: Season Two Ratings

13 July 2014 10:41 AM, PDT | | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

The first season of Defiance performed very well for Syfy. Will season two be a ratings success as well? Will Defiance be renewed for a third season or will it be cancelled instead? Stay tuned to find out.

This show takes place in the year 2047 -- some 30 years after various alien races arrived on Earth. The town of Defiance (what used to be St. Louis) stands as an example of how humans and aliens can live harmoniously (mostly) together. The cast includes Grant Bowler, Julie Benz, Stephanie Leonidas, Jaime Murray, Tony Curran, Graham Greene, Jesse Rath, Nicole Munoz, Dewshane Williams, Jim Murray, Anna Hopkins, and William Atherton.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes »

Variety Critics’ Choice Director Daniel Wolfe on ‘Catch Me Daddy’ and Future Plans

12 July 2014 1:46 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Of the ten up-and-coming European directors showcased in Variety’s Critics’ Choice selection at this year’s Karlovy Vary Film Festival, only one can claim to have already directed Jake Gyllenhaal in a slasher film of sorts. That’d be Britain’s Daniel Wolfe, already celebrated for his striking commercials and music videos — a blood-splashed, Gyllenhaal-starring promo for The Shoes’ “Time to Dance” among them — and now riding a wave of festival buzz for his debut feature “Catch Me Daddy.”

A luminously lensed, Yorkshire-set thriller on the subject of honor killing in the Muslim community, the film premiered in Directors’ Fortnight at Cannes, with Karlovy Vary its first follow-up fest; new to the circuit, the Cambridge-based Wolfe is still taking it all in. “Getting into Cannes was an amazing surprise,” he says. “We really couldn’t have got off to a better start. And then to get picked for Variety »

"Midrange" Doesn't Sink The Shot

29 June 2014 8:09 PM, PDT | | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Something happened to me last year, man.

Subtlety is not a strong suit of this film. Midrange (2013) from the mind and soul of Jason Fields is a religious film that wears its views on its sleeve and doesn't entertain questions. While there is much weeping and rapture, the underlying narrative is a rather mundane slice of life, making those shows of spiritual exuberance incredible. Graham Greene incorporated his hard-scrabble Catholicism into his works in a way that made the characters dynamic, broken by guilt and the certainty that their actions were judged by an unrelenting God. Here, a guy starts crying because he sleeps with someone who dumped a friend of his two weeks ago. Not exactly wrestling with damnation. A year in jail? Try an eternity in hell. Yeah, get back on the court. Maybe you could practice some defense once in a while. [The character has zero D. You probably didn't get that. If you saw the movie, you would have laughed at that observation. Possibly.]

Exclusive: Actress Sherilyn Fenn Talks the Creature Feature 'Unnatural', New Photo!

FEARnet sat down recently with 1990’s bombshell and prolific actress Sherilyn Fenn on the set of director Hank Braxtan’s creature feature Unnatural to chat about the film, as well as the legacy of ‘Twin Peaks’, the David Lynch-created series and film that rocketed her to stardom, 1998’s erotic feature Two Moon Junction in which she starred, and much more. Read on.


Helmed by Braxtan (who’s upcoming psychological horror feature Chemical Peel is due out via Lionsgate this coming October), Unnatural was produced by Ron Carlson with cinematography by Marc Carter and editing by filmmaker Mike Mendez (Big-Ass Spider), and was shot this past January and February on location in Fairbanks, Alaska. In addition to Fenn, the cast includes James Remar (‘Dexter’), Ray Wise (Jeepers Creepers 2, ‘Twin Peaks’), Graham Greene (The Green Mile), Q’orianka Kilcher (‘Sons of Anarchy’) and Ivana Korab.

The top 50 assholes in cinema

24 April 2014 5:52 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Odd List Andrew Blair 25 Apr 2014 - 06:29

They're despicable, smug and downright unpleasant. Andrew lines up his pick of 50 biggest unpleasant, sometimes heroic folk in cinema...

Nb: This article contains swearing and spoilers for numerous films. Bear in mind that it may be not safe for work, and if you haven't seen a film mentioned in a particular entry, do consider skipping to the next one.

Conflict drives drama. Unpleasant people create conflict. Thus, cinema is crammed with huge, provocative arseholes/assholes (we went with the latter on the headline, but now we're in the article, we're going more arse than ass). There are obviously too many to list, but we've provided you with a thought-provoking array of multi-faceted bell-endery. That said, feel free to copy and paste the phrase, "Nice list, but you forgot x" to save time when placing comments below! The 'nice' bit is not compulsory.

Jesse Does Defiance Featurettes and Season 1 Rewatch Info Take the Edge Off the Wait

4 March 2014 1:00 PM, PST | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

We are sadly months away from the June premiere of Season 2 of the Syfy original series Defiance. To tide us over, Syfy has released the first two of what are hopefully many “Jesse Does Defiance” featurettes with Jesse Rath (yes, Meaghan’s brother), who plays Alak Tarr on the show.

The good news about this long wait, besides the featurettes, is that there’s plenty of time to rewatch (or check out for the first time) Season 1, the finale of which was aired all the way back in July of last year. The entire Season 1 is available right now on your On Demand channel and here online.

Here’s a nice two-minute summary of the show, via last summer’s Comic-Con reel, followed by the featurettes:

Berlin Film Review: ‘Diplomacy’

19 February 2014 3:36 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The time is August 1944, and as the Allies march toward Paris, the city’s artistic and architectural riches lie in danger of Nazi dynamiting. No, it isn’t “Return of the Monuments Men,” but rather Volker Schlondorff’s “Diplomacy,” another movie set at the same historical moment that may be far smaller in scale than George Clooney’s limp epic, but proves to be vastly more passionate, engaging and emotional in its depiction of the relationship between Dietrich von Cholitz, the German military governor of occupied Paris, and Swedish consul-general Raoul Nordling. A fine return to form for the veteran German helmer (“The Tin Drum”), adapted from French playwright Cyril Gely’s 2011 stage success, this classy drama of political manners should stir plenty of patriotic fervor in Gaul (where it opens March 5) and score brisk sales to offshore arthouse shingles.

In reality, there never was an all-night powwow between Nordling »

Shirley Temple Black obituary

11 February 2014 8:41 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Cherubic child star of the 1930s who returned to public life as a Us diplomat

From 1934 to 1938, when she was at the height of her fame, Shirley Temple (later known as Shirley Temple Black), who has died aged 85, appeared in films as a bright-eyed, curly-topped, dimpled cherub, whose chirpy singing and toddler's tap dancing were perfect antidotes to the depression. "During this depression, when the spirit of the people is lower than at any other time, it is a splendid thing that, for just 15 cents, an American can go to a movie and look at the smiling face of a baby and forget his troubles," Franklin D Roosevelt stated in 1935, referring to the world's biggest and littlest star.

Temple's message was "be optimistic", the title of the song she sang in Little Miss Broadway (1938). Her biggest hit songs were On the Good Ship Lollipop, from Bright Eyes (1934), which describes a »

Raymond Chandler's arresting new formula for crime fiction

6 February 2014 7:50 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

In The Big Sleep, published 75 years ago this week, the reading public met a very different kind of detective for the first time

Seventy-five years ago this week a revolution in crime-writing began when Knopf published The Big Sleep, Raymond Chandler's first novel. Reviews in 1939 were wary and unenthusiastic, however, and only gradually was it recognised that Chandler had pulled off a bold fusion of highbrow and lowbrow – much-applauded by authors such as Wh Auden, Graham Greene and Evelyn Waugh, but also much-imitated by fellow chroniclers of murder.

What was so new? Almost everything in the first chapter, which introduces Philip Marlowe as he visits the Sternwood family mansion. Marlowe speaks to us. Whereas Holmes, Poirot, Maigret, Sam Spade are observed externally, Marlowe is the detective as autobiographer, starting three consecutive sentences in the first paragraph with "I" (ending with "I was calling on four million dollars").

He is a private detective, »

Hanif Kureishi interview: 'Every 10 years you become someone else'

18 January 2014 5:30 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Hanif Kureishi's muse has long been transgression: dazzling early success was followed by a sex-and-drugs phase, family falling-out and a lacerating novel about marital breakdown. Now, with The Last Word, has he finally pinned down who he really is?

The first time I met Hanif Kureishi it was the mid-80s, and we talked about writing fiction for Faber and Faber whose list I was directing. Kureishi came into my office like a rock star and I remember thinking that he did not seem in need of a career move. He was already riding high on the international success of his screenplay, My Beautiful Laundrette.

In fact, Kureishi was cannily pondering his next step. He was on the lookout for a means of self-expression that might sustain a way of life and over which he could have some control. Movies, he said, were chancy, a gold-rush business. There was »
