Second Opinion – The Bfg (2016)

25 July 2016 8:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Bfg, 2016.

Directed by Steven Spielberg.

Starring Ruby Barnhill, Mark Rylance, Bill Hader, Jemaine Clement, Penelope Wilton, Rebecca Hall and Rafe Spall.

Synopsis:

A girl named Sophie encounters the Big Friendly Giant who, despite his intimidating appearance, turns out to be a kindhearted soul who is considered an outcast by the other giants because, unlike them, he refuses to eat children.

Several of Roald Dahl’s classic children’s stories have been made into films over the years, most of which the author despised because they deviated from his books in significant ways. Ironically, one of the few adaptations he approved of was the 1989 British animated version of the The Bfg, which was very faithful to the source material. Spielberg has reportedly been trying to adapt the book for over 20 years, and now, with the help of his E.T. screenwriter (the late Melissa Mathison) and his new favourite actor Mark Rylance, »

Scream Factory shows Mick Garris Some Love When Psycho IV: The Beginning Hits DVD/Bluray This August!!

19 July 2016 2:05 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

AMC’s Bates Motel has done a hell of a job giving viewers a fresh, new take on the horror classic Psycho and it’s sometimes protagonist/antagonist, Norman Bates. A lot of newer fans of the series have voiced their opinions on how interesting it is to see the genesis of why Norman became what he eventually became: a murderer. Well, as most horror fans know, back in 1990, the Showtime network premiered a made for TV film called Psycho IV: The Beginning. Both a prequel and a sequel, the timeline within the film goes back and forth between Norman being verbally abused by his mother, some interesting sexual tension between them and current day Norman, out of jail and attempting to live a typical married life. I’ve always had a soft spot for Psycho IV, and with the announcement of Scream Factory’s August 23rd DVD/Bluray release, »

Mike Flanagan’s Ouija: Origin Of Evil Trailer Looks Way Better than Its Predecessor

24 June 2016 6:32 AM, PDT | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

Let’s face it, Ouija was pretty much worthless. It was forgettable and a wasted opportunity. The end product was definitely the result of too many hands in the pot. However, Universal knows that acquiring the license of using the “Ouija” name is definitely something that should be capitalized upon. It also doesn’t hurt that the first film did well at the box office, probably based off the name. Luckily for horror fans, they got a great director in Mike Flanagan to take a crack at the franchise and judging from the trailer, this should have been the original film.

Ouija: Origin of Evil arrives in theaters October 21st from Universal Pictures. Henry Thomas (Betrayal), Annalise Basso (Oculus), Elizabeth Reaser (“True Detective”), Lulu Wilson (Deliver Us from Evil), Parker Mack (MTV’s “Faking It”), Sam Anderson, Kate Siegel (Demon Legacy), and Doug Jones (Hellboy, “Fear Itself”) star.

First Full Trailer for Board Game Horror Prequel 'Ouija: Origin of Evil'

23 June 2016 7:32 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

It was never just a game. Universal has unveiled a trailer for the upcoming horror prequel Ouija: Origin of Evil, the follow-up to the Ouija movie from 2014. Did anyone even want a sequel to the first one? The film has quite a cast: Henry Thomas, Elizabeth Reaser, Doug Jones, Parker Mack, Sam Anderson, Kate Siegel, Annalise Basso, and Lulu Wilson. The plot for this one involves a young daughter of a family being taken over by a malevolent spirit, and things get increasingly freaky from there. I can't help but say this looks fairly generic, with some bland scares and the usual horror tropes, nothing unique. Oh well. Here's the first official trailer for Mike Flanagan's Ouija: Origin of Evil, direct from YouTube: Inviting audiences again into the lore of the spirit board, Ouija: Origin of Evil tells a terrifying new tale as the follow-up to 2014’s sleeper hit. »

Watch: ‘Ouija: Origin of Evil’ Trailer Heads to the ’60s for Dark Scares

23 June 2016 2:07 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Evil, unsurprisingly, dominates in the trailer for Universal’s “Ouija: Origin of Evil” with a small girl named Doris — played with malevolent intensity by Lulu Wilson — being overtaken by a merciless force.

“Do you know what it feels like to be strangled to death?” she asks at one point.

The movie, a prequel to the 2014 hit “Ouija,” is set in 1965 Los Angeles as a widowed mother (played by Elizabeth Reaser) and her two daughters add a new stunt to bolster their at-home séance scam business. The strains of Herman’s Hermits’ relentlessly upbeat 1964 hit “Something Good” provide a strong counterpoint to the growing evil-doings in the trailer.

Henry Thomas, best remembered as Elliot from “E.T. — The Extraterrestrial,” plays a concerned priest from Doris’ school. “I believe she is channeling powers we do not understand,” he says with urgency.

Universal has given “Ouija: Origin of Evil” an Oct. 21 release date. »

First Trailer For Ouija Sequel Chronicles The Origin Of Evil

23 June 2016 1:33 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Bringing together the Oculus crack team of director Mike Flanagan and Annalise Basso, Universal is aligning Oculus: Origin of Evil to be its tentpole scarefest going into the 2016 Halloween corridor, and today the studio has conjured up our first look at the supernatural sequel in action.

In collaboration with Blumhouse Productions, the follow-up will be hoping to strike box office gold in the vein of its forebear, which proved to be one of the sleeper hits of 2014 after pulling in an overly impressive $102 million off the back of a meagre $2 million budget.

Fast forward two years and now, Origin of Evil will thrust moviegoers back to the Los Angeles of the 1960s, where unspeakable evil stalks a widowed mother and her two daughters. Toying with supernatural forces beyond their controls, things go from bad to horrible in today’s reveal trailer, which also spotlights the sequel’s principal cast: Elizabeth Reaser, »

‘Ouija: Origin of Evil’ Trailer: Something Tells Me This 1965-Set Horror Prequel Isn’t Into Something Good

23 June 2016 12:59 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Any eight-year-old can tell you that toying with Ouija boards is asking for trouble, but how many movies would be left if premises based on bad decisions were no longer allowed? 2014’s “Ouija” was inevitable in our current films-based-on-toys moment; once it made more than $100 million against a $5 million budget, so was its upcoming sequel. (According to a tweet from Jason Blum, it’s also better than its predecessor.) Watch the trailer for “Ouija: Origin of Evil” now…unless you’re scared.

About a widowed mother who hosts séances in her home, “Origin of Evil” is a prequel set in 1965 with an entirely new cast. The charlatan’s young daughter gets her hands on the board game/spiritual device this time around, so you can probably imagine much of what happens on your lonesome. »

Ouija: Origin of Evil Trailer Goes Back to the Beginning

23 June 2016 11:28 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in the fall of 2014, producers Jason Blum and Michael Bay turned a board game into a low-budget sleeper hit with Ouija, which earned $103.5 million worldwide from just a $5 million budget. While the original thriller was set in present day, the upcoming follow-up Ouija: Origin of Evil takes us back 50 years, as you can see in the first trailer and poster. Inviting audiences again into the lore of the spirit board, Ouija: Origin of Evil tells a terrifying new tale as the follow-up to 2014's horror blockbuster that opened at number one.

Mike Flanagan Attempts to Save a Franchise in First Trailer for ‘Ouija: Origin of Evil’

23 June 2016 10:31 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

After the back-to-back success of Oculus and Hush, writer-director Mike Flanagan will release his third feature of the year (after September’s Before I Wake) with Ouija: Origin of Evil. The first trailer introduces the family the film centers around, as their Ouija board scam becomes an all-too-chilling reality when the youngest member of the family gets in touch with an evil spirit.

The first film did well at the box-office (though much less so with critics, holding a 7% on Rotten Tomatoes) and it remains to be seen if Flanagan can balance studio needs with a more critically-minded eye. Other than a creepy use of a split-focus diopter, the trailer features traditional PG-13 horror conceits such as harsh lighting, a gliding camera, and a creepy child to try and deliver its scares.
