Geraldine McEwan obituary

31 January 2015 11:32 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

A brilliant and fascinating exponent of high comedy and darkest drama

Geraldine McEwan, who has died aged 82, could purr like a kitten, snap like a viper and, like Shakespeare’s Bottom, roar you as gently as any sucking dove. She was a brilliant, distinctive and decisive performer whose career incorporated high comedy on the West End stage, Shakespeare at Stratford-upon-Avon, Laurence Olivier’s National Theatre, and a cult television following in Ef Benson’s Mapp and Lucia (1985-86).

She was also notable on television as a controversial Miss Marple in a series of edgy, incongruously outspoken Agatha Christie adaptations (2004-09). Inheriting a role that had already been inhabited at least three times “definitively” – by Margaret Rutherford, Angela Lansbury and Joan Hickson – she made of the deceptively cosy detective a character both steely and skittish, with a hint of lust about her, too.

Cromwell pleads for Wolsey in Wolf Hall, Paxman on Churchill: A Nation’s Farewell and Danish drama The Legacy nears the end. Plus: more skulduggery in Midsomer Murders, The Great British Sewing Bee revisited, and fairytales reworked in Grimm

It may have reached the milestone of 17 series but Midsomer continues to be recommissioned. Perhaps that’s because, while it wears the clothes of a contemporary cop show, it so often has the atmosphere of an Agatha Christie whodunnit. Witness tonight’s series opener and the way it delights in the brilliantly daffy notion of death by booby-trapped roulette wheel. But how is this spin of the wheel linked to deceased crime writer George Summersbee and a recently discovered manuscript? Jonathan Wright

‘Valentin, Valentin’s’ Pascal Thomas: ‘Female Desire Is Apparently Still Scandalous’

15 January 2015 4:34 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

British crime can pay handsomely in France, at least when its fiction. Paybox Canal Plus aired pastoral sleuth saga “Inspector Morse” from 1988; “The Little Murders by Agatha Christie” has been a staple on pubcaster channel France 2 since 2009. Produced by Les Films Francais, Said Ben Said’s Sbs Productions – the producer of “I’ve Lovec You So Long,” Roman Polanski’s and Brian de Palma’s “ “ and France 2 Cinema, “Valentin, Valentin” enrolls a strong ensemble cast in a Paris suburbs makeover of Ruth Rendall’s slim 2010 novel, “Tigerlily’s Orchids.” At one crux in “Valentin, Valentin,” one character is asked of another, with whom she had a relationship, if they knew him. “Not really,” she replied. While Ruth Rendell’s center on the capacity for crime of the most respectable of people, “Valentin, Valentin” turns on this: Other people are not hell, but a mystery.

Beyond Fright Review: Bad Turn Worse

7 January 2015 2:03 PM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

A good Texas-pulp thriller can be hard to come by. That feeling and mood that filled stories written by Jim Thompson and various others just don’t seem to translate to film that often. When they do, it’s not only a rare occurrence, but something to latch onto.  Full  of twists and turns, the Simon and Zeke Hawkins-directed Bad Turn Worse not only captures that Texas-pulp feeling, but provides one of the most memorable and entertaining rides throughout the pulp genre in years.

Written by Dutch Southern, Bad Turns Worse takes that tale of friends and lovers and the backstabbing that typically fills the pulp-noir tale, and provides and excellent and fresh feeling to that approach. When the film opens with the cocky B.J. (TV’s “V“)breaking into an office and safe, and taking the large amount of money within that safe, as a viewer, you »

Teaser trailer for NightCry - from the maker of Clock Tower

5 January 2015 1:13 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

A spiritual successor to the Clock Tower horror game series, NightCry has a new teaser trailer directed by The Grudge's Takashi Shimizu...

Something horrible crawling out of a well. A bloodshot, staring eye. Hideous monsters apparently made from shadows and strands of burnt hair.

It's only 30 seconds long, but the teaser trailer for the forthcoming NightCry is a veritable compendium of Japanese horror staples - though that may be partly because it was directed by Takashi Shimizu, the filmmaker behind Ju-on: The Grudge.

Being live action, the trailer tells us relatively little about the game itself. NightCry is from the mind of Hifumi Kouno, and it's described as a spiritual successor to his own Clock Tower - the 1995 survival horror game that sent a shudder down players' spines with its multiple endings and atmosphere of creeping dread.

NightCry will be set on a luxury liner where the passengers are »
