11 April 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Arrested Development, which producer Brian Grazer confirmed would be returning

Netflix’s upcoming series The Get Down has cast its four lead roles. The hip hop drama, set in New York in the 70s, has tapped Shameik Moore, Justice Smith, Skylan Brooks, and Tremain Brown Jr. to star in the series. Moore, who will soon be seen on the big screen in the Sundance feature Dope, will be playing Shaolin Fantastic, while Smith, who is in this summer’s Paper Towns, will play Ezekiel. Brown Jr. will make his acting debut on the series by playing Boo-Boo, while Brooks, who was one of the two leads in The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Pete, will play Ra-Ra.

Netflix describes The Get Down thusly.

The Get Down focuses on 1970s New York — broken down and beaten up, violent, cash strapped — dying. Consigned to rubble, a rag-tag crew of South Bronx teenagers are »

Dark Summer DVD Review

11 April 2015 1:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Paul Solet

Cast: Keir Gilchrist , Stella Maeve, Peter Stormare, Grace Phipps

Certificate: 15

Running Time: 79 minutes

Tied for years to the slasher/torture porn over-the-top gore fests, the horror genre lost any semblance of atmosphere. In recent months though we’ve seen it turn a bend for the better with several very clever and innovative projects hitting our shores; The Babadook, Starry Eyes and It Follows have all shown that less is always more. The latest movie to attempt this refreshing approach is Dark Summer which deals with in-vogue topics such as cyber stalking and the ramifications that it can have, and much like It Follows the power of teenage friendship.

As well as sharing a theme, horror connoisseurs will recognise the film’s protagonist Keir Gilchrist as the perpetually friend-zoned Paul in It Follows. As Daniel, Gilchrist creates a rather odd lead character that we aren’t quite sure »

Video Round-Up: Stung, John McNaughton’s The Harvest, Penny Dreadful Season 2

6 April 2015 4:34 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Guests at the garden party in the upcoming creature feature, Stung, will have to replace their EpiPens with swords and flamethrowers if they want to survive the giants wasps from below that are featured in the film's first trailer. Also included in our latest video round-up is a boy next door with a creepy caretaker in John McNaughton's The Harvest, as well as Helen McCrory's tour of her character's eerily decorated mansion from the upcoming second season of Showtime's Penny Dreadful.

Stung: "Mrs. Perch, an elderly, wealthy lady from rural America, is throwing a fancy garden party at her remote country villa. Same procedure as every year - except this time her illegally imported plant fertilizer seeps into the ground. Subsequently, a local species of killer wasps that usually lay their eggs into other insects mutates into 7 ft tall predators. And the celebrating upper class company provides »

Penguins Of Madagascar DVD Review

4 April 2015 3:58 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

 Director: Eric Darnell & Simon J. Smith

 Starring: Tom McGrath, Chris Miller, Conrad Vernon, Christopher  Knights, Benedict Cumberbatch, John Malkovich, Ken Jeong, Annet  Mahendru, Peter Stormare

 Certificate: U

Running Time: 92 minutes

Extras: Top-Secret Guide To Becoming An Elite Agent, Madagascar  Mash-Up, Cheezy Dibbles Ad, The World Of DreamWorks

After the immense success of Madagascar (2005) it was inevitable that sequels would follow, and that they did in the form of Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa (2008) and Madagascar 3: Europe’S Most Wanted (2012), with a fourth installment planned for 2018. However, it wasn’t just the main characters/animals to win over the hearts of children and adults alike; four penguins by the names of Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private have shot to stardom, with their film Penguins Of Madagascar a hoot from beginning to end.

Bruce Campbell To Play Reagan In "Fargo"

25 March 2015 6:02 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Beloved "Evil Dead" and "Burn Notice" actor Bruce Campbell is set to guest star as Ronald Reagan for a one-episode appearance on the second season of FX's acclaimed anthology series "Fargo".

Set in the late 1970s, the story takes place during Reagan's first campaign for President, during which he does a trip through Fargo and some of the season's key characters have some interactions with him. Some of his movies are also a part of the show.

Campbell has been involved with "Fargo" before, playing a bit role as an actor in a soap opera which Steve Buscemi and Peter Stormare's characters watch in the original 1996 Coen brothers movie.

Production on the ten episode second season is currently underway in Calgary ahead of a premiere in the Fall.

‘Dark Summer’ Review

19 March 2015 2:28 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Keir GilchristStella MaeveMaestro Harrell, Peter Stormare, Grace Phipps | Written by Mike Le | Directed by Paul Solet

When I think of horror movies that use the house arrest conceit my mind wanders to films like 100 Feet, Housebound and even Disturbia - although that one is more of a thriller, it is still a good example.  Dark Summer runs with the house arrest idea but this time adding in the idea of cyber stalking and using technology to power the ghost.

In Dark Summer, Daniel (Keir Gilchrist) is put under house arrest over the summer while his mother is away on business.  Banned from social media for his crime of cyber stalking and hacking he soon finds his way around it only to find the girl he is obsessed with making contact with him.  Telling him he will feel what she feels she commits suicide over video chat, him »

Watch ‘Dark Summer’ Trailer

19 March 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Everyone loves a good horror. The last few months have seen us treated to several gems; The Babadook, Starry Eyes and It Follows being at the top of the pile. Another hopeful is Dark Summer which stars Keir Gilchrist, from It Follows. His last outing was ridiculously creepy and here’s hoping that the new venture will be just as fruitful.

Also on board the cast is Grace Phipps, an actress making great strides in the horror realm with roles in The Vampire DiariesFright Night and upcoming Some Kind Of Hate. Dark Summer also features one of the great ‘that guys’, Peter Stomare.

The synopsis is thus:

In Dark Summer 17 year old Daniel Austin is given house-arrest for the summer for obsessive online stalking of his classmate and crush Mona Wilson. When his mother goes away on a long business trip, Daniel is left alone, with no phone, no internet, »

Longmire Season Three Blu-Ray Review

19 March 2015 7:55 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Longmire is an absolute anomaly in the world of television, which could have something to do with the fact that it was pulled from A&E, despite consistently high ratings for the network. It’s also the reason that it was something of a no-brainer that it would be picked up by someone else, and season four will air on Netflix later in the year.

Where the first two seasons pulled us slowly into the depths of Sheriff Walt Longmire’s life on the sprawling plains of Wyoming, the third season is like the hammer blow that follows the slow, methodical wind-up.

The second season ended by bringing a lot of forces to the fore in a move of plot construction that brilliantly weaves angles and conspiracies into a show that actually makes it difficult to look away. The third season spins this all together, but uses a mode of »

Film Review: 'Dark Summer'

18 March 2015 4:22 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★☆☆☆ The inertia of millennial existential malaise has been de rigueur in the horror genre of late. David Robert Mitchell terrified with a wonderful twist on teenage anxieties in his It Follows (2014), exploring the dualities of sex and the slow dread of infernal lazy afternoons. Elsewhere Starry Eyes (2014), written and directed by Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer, sought to plumb similar depths from the ennui of La creatives. Dark Summer (2015) threatens to follow suit but Mike Le's script - directed by Paul Solet - begins as though it intends to stalk the disquieting hallways of 21st century technological preoccupation before careering into rote haunted house banality.

The presence of It Follows actor Keir Gilchrist (pictured right) does little to help avoid such unfavourable comparisons. In that film he played a lovesick teen willing to sacrifice himself for Maika Monroe. On this occasion his unrequited feelings have led to some cyber-stalking and landed his character, »

‘Clown’ DVD Review

12 March 2015 3:36 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Andy Powers, Laura Allen, Peter Stormare, Elizabeth Whitmere, Christian Distefano, Chuck Shamata, Matthew Stefiuk, Sarah Scheffer, Allen Altman | Written by Christopher D. Ford, Jon Watts | Directed by Jon Watts

An Eli Roth produced horror film about a killer clown. As concepts go, Clown has itself a real doozy. When the clown he hired for his son’s birthday party flakes out on him, a desperate dad and real estate agent dresses up in the clown costume he finds in the basement of one of his properties. His clown act is a resounding success, but isn’t quite so funny the next day, when he can’t get the make-up, wig or nose off his face. Even worse, he appears to be transforming into a child-eating demonic clown. It’s up to his wife and a dodgy Peter Stormare to save the poor guy before its too late – both for »

Watch: Trailer For Eli Roth-Produced Horror 'Clown'

10 March 2015 2:26 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Five years ago, a trailer made the rounds online purporting to be an Eli Roth-produced horror film called “Clown” about a father that inexplicably begins turning into a monstrous clown after dressing up for son’s birthday party. It turns out the viral video was, of course, a fake trailer cooked up by commercial directors Jon Watts and Christopher D. Ford. Now, half a decade later, the fake movie is very real and has its very own authentic trailer. The real trailer for the real “Clown” clocks in at two-and-a-half-minutes — roughly double the length of the original — and boasts some star power in the form of character actor Peter Stormare as that one old kook you see in horror movies that lays out the mythology of the film’s world. Ford and Watts wrote the film together, with Watts alone at the helm and Roth as the producer (and »

Frightfest Glasgow 2015: ‘Clown’ Review

There’s been a lot of hype surrounding Clown, no doubt because purveyor of gore and grue, Eli Roth (Hostel), has his name attached to the film. So forgive me if I came away from the movie feeling a little under-whelmed. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed what I saw but I couldn’t help but feel it needed something more… After all, when you break the story down, it’s not much more than a Tales From the Crypt/Tales From the Darkside-style morality play; and those two TV shows told their stories in less than thirty minutes.

Clown tells the story of doting father Kent who dons a clown outfit he finds in an abandoned property he is renovating, »

Longmire Season 3 Now on DIsc

7 March 2015 10:04 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

The wonderfully underrated Longmire completed its third season last year and was then canceled by A&E for reasons beyond understanding.

Burbank, CA (February 23, 2015) – The stunning skies of Wyoming, and the mysteries beneath them, have never been more enthralling than in the unfolding episodes of Longmire, the popular A&E-turned-Netflix television series.  Those cinematic visuals and intense situations have also never looked better than in the full 1080p HD presentation of Warner Archive Collection’s Blu-ray™ release of Longmire, Season 3, available now via your favorite online retailers.

Arrow Season 3 Episode 13 Review – ‘Canaries’

12 February 2015 10:59 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Jessie Robertson reviews the thirteenth episode of Arrow season 3…

Let’s start with Ollie and Thea; when Season one kicked off, the bond was really fractured between them quickly, as Ollie, even though he’s been gone, only saw himself as her big brother, protector and policeman. In that time, their relationship evolved back into loving siblings to untrusting back to being close again. It’s been a dynamic relationship with the undertone that Ollie had kept this huge secret from the one person whom he knew was not ready,nor may ever be ready. Merlyn shows up, drops one or two lines about how Oliver needs to do this massive thing he’s been avoiding, flat out refusing, then disappears into the dark. The Oliver that went to Nanda Parbat would have never agreed to this and told Merlyn to get bent. The Oliver that has returned is finding »
