Satanic Sunday: Cults devoted to the Devil

26 October 2014 9:07 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Cloaked in hooded robes, hell-bent on destruction and ready to sacrifice innocents to please their master- worshipers of the Devil are an easy bunch to stereotype in popular portrayals. Ranked from worst to best, the extent to which they work with or against cliché and manage to be entertaining on film is profiled in the following list. This discussion does contain some spoilers!

Daniel Stamm’s “The Last Exorcism

The Last Exorcism (2010)

The Last Exorcism builds upon the skepticism of its main character, a man who performs exorcisms to give religious zealots peace of mind and as a social service to prevent any real harm to people accused of being possessed. The alleged possession and abuse of a timid country girl occupies most of the film, with a cult showing up in its final frenzied moments. Keeping the characters involved with this cult a secret, it can still be said »

While fans still have a few more weeks before Hercules debuts on Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD, starting November 4, this action-adventure will be available on Digital HD October 21. We have an exclusive preview that takes fans behind-the-scenes with director Brett Ratner and star Aksel Hennie.

Aksel Hennie plays Tydeus, one of the deadly mercenaries in Hercules' group, who brandishes a pair of deadly axes as his primary weapons. This video is part of the "Weapons" featurette on the Blu-ray 3D and Blu-ray, where we see footage of Aksel Hennie's Tydeus in action, using these twin blades to take out any enemy he sees in front of him.

We also hear from an unidentified crew member, who reveals that they came up with a device allowing Aksel Hennie to hang these weapons on his belt for easy access, and that the actor was rarely seen without the metal weapons on set. »

Exclusive Interview with Adelaide Kane for ‘The Devil’s Hand’

17 October 2014 10:52 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The devil loves tormenting good Christian communities.

From Roadside Attractions, “The Devil’s Hand” stars Rufus Sewell (“Hercules,” “Gods of Egypt”), Alycia Debnam Carey (“Into the Storm”), Adelaide Kane (“Reign”) and Colm Meaney (“Star Trek: Deep Space Nine”).

Here’s the synopsis:

Something very strange happened in the small village of New Bethlehem, a devout community kept under the tight reins of the town's vigilant Elders. Six girls born on the same day to different mothers. Perhaps a coincidence or as most believe a chilling omen of something yet to come. Now, on the eve of their 18th birthday, the young women are mysteriously disappearing one by one and feared dead. Terror has overtaken this quiet community. Could this be the work of a serial killer, one of the village elders or a horrific prophecy come true?

Latino-Review had an exclusive phone interview with actress Adelaide Kane on the release date for the film. »

The CW and Yari Film Group are teaming to develop "The Illusionist," a TV series based on the 2006 period drama film of the same name starring Edward Norton, Jessica Biel and Paul Giamatti.

The original starred Norton as a magician in 19th Century Vienna who uses his incredible skills to win the heart of a Duchess and save her from the brutal Crown Prince Leopold (Rufus Sewell) to whom she is betrothed.

The TV series switches around the premise and setting, which will now take place in New York City at the turn of the century. There an illusionist returns home from a decade in prison to find his wife married to the ruthless crime boss who framed him.

The illusionist disguises himself as an underling in the crime lord's organization, using his sleight-of-hand skills to pull off daring heists, rising through the ranks to win back his beloved and bring down the crime boss. »

Killing Jesus Adaptation Gains Kelsey Grammer And Stephen Moyer

7 October 2014 9:45 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The National Geographic Channel is switching its attentions from the assassinations of presidents, to the assassination of religious figures – with a four hour mini-series adaptation of the 2013 book Killing Jesus, by Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard. As the follow-up to the successful TV versions of their earlier books, Killing Lincoln and Killing Kennedy, the project will be written and executive produced by Walon Green (Law & Order: Criminal Intent), with Christopher Menaul (Summer In February) in the director’s chair.

This re-telling of the life and death of Jesus is set against the backdrop of intense conflict within the Roman Empire, and will now star multiple Emmy award-winner Kelsey Grammer (The Expendables 3) as King Herod – “the unrelenting and ambitious Roman King of Judea, who attempted to kill Jesus at his birth.” Stephen Moyer (True Blood) will feature as Pontius Pilate – the fifth prefect of Judaea, and the man who ordered the crucifixion of Jesus. »

Hercules Extended Cut Starring The Rock Headed to Blu-ray 3D, Digital and More

23 September 2014 1:14 PM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Brett Ratner's Hercules starring Dwayne Johnson, otherwise known as The Rock, will be hacking and slashing its way to Digital HD on October 21, followed by a November 4 release date for Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD.

Johnson plays the titular character who leads a mission with other warriors into a battle with overwhelmingly impossible odds. The film also stars Ian McShane, Joseph Fiennes, Rufus Sewell and John Hurt.

The home video debut of Hercules features an additional three minutes of footage spliced into a new "extended cut" for Blu-ray and DVD. The Blu-ray 3D version is strictly the theatrical cut; however, since the Blu-ray 3D edition is a combo pack, you can watch the extended cut on the Blu-ray from the same package. Paramount and Ratner didn't bother with 3D-encoding the extra minutes of footage.

Audio is being presented in English Dolby Atmos (7.1 Dolby TrueHD compatible), the second Paramount title »

Shelf Life: Dark City

14 September 2014 3:12 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Every week, Shelf Life sees Tom White select and talk about a movie that lives on his DVD shelf, one he thinks we should all see. With The Crow, director Alex Proyas made a huge mark on the main stream showing a lot of promise with his signature style and dark tone. While the likes of I, Robot and Knowing have seen his styleget diluted throughout the years, it was his third feature that showed Proyas at his best, and gave us a great sense of what he could achieve. That movie was 1998's Dark City. One full year before The Matrix (which also used some of the same sets), Dark City explored many similar themes and even shared many plot beats with The Wachowski's sci-fi classic, but while that movie went big and flashy, Dark City went smaller and deeper, with Rufus Sewell's John Murdoch discovering the city »

Horror Goes Amish in The Devil's Hand [Trailer]

8 September 2014 12:21 PM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

Devil possession and the Amish seem to go hand in hand so well that I'm a bit surprised this is the first time I've seen a horror movie with this setting and even more surprising, one that doesn't look like a total write-off.

Directed by Christian E. Christiansen (who previously made the terrible Single White Female rip-off/update The Roommate), The Devil's Hand (previously known as the equally generic but far more forgettable Where the Devil Hides) stars Rufus Sewell, Colm Meaney, Jennifer Carpenter and a slew of relative newcomers as the six girls at the center of this story. They were all born on the same night and according to prophecy, all but one will die and the last remaining survivor will become the titular Devil's Hand.

It's ridiculous stuff but [Continued ...] »

Trailer for the Amish Horror Thriller The Devil's Hand

8 September 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Dexter's Jennifer Carpenter stars in a new horror movie called The Devil's Hand. The story centers on six young Amish girls who are accused of being "Satan's children" because they were a born on the sixth day of the sixth month. Since they have the 666 factor working against them, they must fight for their lives when their devout community elders insist they be "cleansed" before turning 18. 

I'm not expecting this to be an amazing film, but I hope it will at least provide some fun and creepy entertainment. Here's the official synopsis:

When six girls are born on the sixth day of the sixth month to different mothers in the small, devout village of New Bethlehem an ancient prophecy is set in motion -- on their 18th birthday one of the girls will become the Devil’s Hand. As the day approaches and one by one the young women begin to disappear, »
