15 September 2017 9:06 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

According to reports, actress Lulu Wilson ("Annabelle: Creation") has joined the cast of the upcoming Netflix/Amblin adaptation of author Shirley Jackson's 1959 novel "The Haunting Of Hill House", previously adapted as the feature "The Haunting":

"...'Hill House' is an eighty-year-old mansion built by long-deceased 'Hugh Crain'. The story follows main characters 'Dr. John Montague', an investigator of the supernatural, 'Eleanor Vance', a shy young woman who resents having lived as a recluse caring for her demanding invalid mother, 'Theodora', a flamboyant, bohemian artist and 'Luke Sanderson', the young heir to 'Hill House'.

"Dr. Montague hopes to find scientific evidence of the existence of the supernatural. He rents Hill House for a summer and invites as his guests several people, chosen because of their past experience with paranormal events. 

"Of these, only Eleanor and Theodora accept. Eleanor travels to the house, where she and Theodora will live in isolation with Montague and Luke. »

Pamela Adlon on Directing Every Episode of Season 2 of Her Remarkable FX Series ‘Better Things’

13 September 2017 9:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

On the coffee table in Pamela Adlon’s sunny Sherman Oaks office, within easy reach of her comfortable, blanket-strewn couch, is a book of photographs by Vivian Maier.

Maier, who worked as a nanny in Chicago for years, took the art world by storm when her work came to light a few years ago. Unknown before her death (her negatives were discovered after she died in 2009), she was keenly interested in all kinds of humans, from homeless people and children to shoppers and socialites. Her uncontrived images grab the viewer in part because they don’t traffic in sentimentality or cliché.

The same can be said for Adlon, creator of FX’s “Better Things,” which returns Sept. 14. After a critically acclaimed first season, she has gone full auteur. Not only did she serve as showrunner and star once again (earning an Emmy nomination for best actress in a comedy), but she also directed every episode of the »

Blu-ray Review – E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial (1982)

12 September 2017 12:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial, 1982.

Directed by Steven Spielberg.

Starring Dee Wallace, Peter Coyote, Henry Thomas, Robert MacNaughton, and Drew Barrymore.

Synopsis:

Anniversaries divisible by five remain popular with the Hollywood studios’ home theater divisions, so of course E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial needed (not really) that treatment for its 35th anniversary. If you have the Blu-ray issued five years ago, you can skip this one, but it’s a worthwhile upgrade if you only own the 2002 two-disc DVD edition. The 1.5-hour laserdisc documentary remains missing, but a chunk of its material was repurposed for the bonus features found here.

E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial may feel hokey to modern audiences, but it’s one of many movies directed by Steven Spielberg and George Lucas that had a huge impact on my childhood and on my creative sensibilities. As such, I’m always happy to give it another spin, and »

Gerald's Game Trailer Brings the Stephen King Classic to Netflix

6 September 2017 12:35 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Netflix has released the first trailer and photo for Gerald's Game, a highly-anticipated adaptation of the 1992 Stephen King novel. With the September 29 premiere just a few weeks away, it remains to be seen how much more footage will be unveiled in the next few weeks, but this adaptation seems to keep this new renaissance of Stephen King's work going, following the high-profile adaptations of The Dark Tower and It, the later of which hits theaters this weekend. While we'll have to wait and see how fans react to this thriller, it certainly seems to capture the creepy spirit of the novel.

The story centers on Gerald (Bruce Greenwood) and Jessie Burlingame as they head to their summer home on a warm weekday in October for a romantic interlude that involves adult games. After being handcuffed to her bedposts, Jessie tires of her husband's games and things take an unexpectedly tragic turn. »

Frog Dreaming: a strange and wonderful should-be Australian classic

26 July 2017 1:03 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Starring Et’s Henry Thomas, this is magical, smartly crafted B-grade 80s nostalgia, if you look past the casual racism

Tucked away in the shadowy annals of Sbs On Demand, along with all the stuff you used to discover on the channel at 2am on a sleepless night, is a strange and rather wonderful should-be Australian classic: a children’s adventure film from 1986 called Frog Dreaming.

Frog Dreaming (variously retitled The Quest and The Go Kids for the world market) plays like a lost tradition of politically incorrect kids’ cinema. Its boy hero is a 15-year-old American called Cody (played by Henry Thomas, the star of Et) who lives in an idyllic Australian valley town. A boy MacGyver equipped with an extensive bank of practical knowledge, Cody is resourceful, unsurprised by anything and ready for everything. One dull day, he takes his two buddies, Wendy and Jane, to venture into Devil’s Knob national park, »
