Blu-ray Review: Carrie (2002) / The Rage: Carrie 2

16 April 2015 9:17 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Could anyone have guessed when Stephen King published his first novel Carrie in 1974 that it would spawn no fewer than four big screen adaptations? Brian De Palma’s 1976 version remains the first and best, but each subsequent filmmaker who comes at the material seeks to find something new and unexplored in King’s book. Of the two remakes and one sequel released in the last 16 years, only one movie has succeeded in being different enough to justify its own existence. It’s The Rage: Carrie 2, and it’s being packaged with the 2002 made-for-tv remake on a new double feature Blu-ray from Scream Factory.

By now you already know the story of Carrie White, a shy and awkward teenage girl raised by a religious zealot mother and possessing some major telekinetic abilities. When some kids at school decide play a big, bloody prank on her the prom, Carrie retaliates with »

Mip TV: Mena Suvari on ‘South of Hell,’ Eli Roth, Her Chameleon Nature

14 April 2015 7:53 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Cannes – Conjoining the talents of the world’s two young high priests of horror, Eli Roth and Jason Blum, Mena Suvari’s psychological chiller “South of Hell,” an eight-hour original drama, initiated its sales campaign Monday at Cannes Mip TV, having wrapped production in Charlestown in January.

At Mip TV, in a pretty print dress, Suvari hardly looks as if she’s got a devil inside her. That, however is part of her interest as an actress. Suvari broke out in Sam Mendes’ Oscar winning “American Beauty” where she played the girl next door and object of a helpless Kevin Spacey’s desire.

There’s something of that dichotomy, amped up, in “South of Hell,” which is produced by Blumhouse Television and Sonar Entertainment, which also sells international.

Set in Charleston, South Carolina, “the most possessed city in the world,” according to a synopsis, “South” features Suvari in almost every »

Amy Schumer apparently needed some liquid courage for her latest cover shoot. The Trainwreck actress, 33, amusingly bared all for Entertainment Weekly's latest cover - but relied on some strategically placed mini alcohol bottles to make this image safe for the newsstand. Best part about this boozy shot? The Inside Amy Schumer star, who will host the MTV Movie Awards April 12, suggested it herself. "I was like, 'Stop it - I'm going to be naked,' " she said, per EW, which reports they initially suggested she pose in a black dress covered in candy wrappers, a sly take on Mena Suvari »

Idris Elba Set To Present ‘Mandela, My Dad and Me’ at Miptv (Exclusive)

2 April 2015 8:19 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Paris — Idris Elba has joined the roster of stars who are set to attend at Miptv, the Cannes-set confab which has grown into a popular showcase of premium content for all platforms.

Elba (“Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom”) will attend Miptv to promote his documentary “Mandela, My Dad and Me” which is produced by his outfit Green Door Pictures, Woodcut Media and Shine North, and repped in international markets by Content Television.

Directed by Daniel Vernon, the one-off doc follows Elba on a journey of “self-exploration” in South Africa during the filming of “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom” in which he starred as the political hero. The doc then chronicles the actor’s struggle to produce “Idris Elba presents Mi Mandela,” an album of South African music paying tribute to Mandela, while coping with the sudden death of his father, who was also his role model.

Don’t Blink (2014) review

Don’t Blink (2014)

Written by: Travis Oates

Directed by: Travis Oates

Cast: Mena Suvari (Tracy), Brian Austin Green (Jack), Zack Ward (Alex), Joanne Kelley (Claire), Robert Picardo (Man in Black), Fionna Gubelmann (Ella), David de Lautour (Noah), Leif Gantvoort (Sam), Emilie O’Hara (Amelia)

After all of the horror that I’ve taken in all these years, I don’t think that I could even begin to feel peaceful at a secluded cabin with a bunch of friends in tow. The adage “safety in numbers” seems to never, ever apply with recreational cohabitation in the wilderness. I’m not sure why, but it just happens to be a well documented fact in horror cinema. Slasher or supernatural, something that starts with an “s” is just going make methodical work of disposing of everyone. The previously mentioned cabin set up just happens to be the »

Carrie (2002) / The Rage: Carrie 2 Blu-ray Double Feature Release Details Revealed

25 February 2015 1:36 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Sometimes, high school can be a virtual hell. Mileage varies by the individual, of course, but in a place where acceptance at a lunch table can be akin to finding an oasis in a desert, there's more weight on the shoulders of many teens than just their backpack straps. Such is the case for Ewen High School student Carrie White, the telekinetic titular character of Stephen King's seminal debut novel published in 1974.

Carrie has been adapted for the screen multiple times for multiple generations, and Scream Factory is giving the Generation Y versions a high-definition upgrade, with their Carrie and The Rage: Carrie 2 double feature Blu-ray now set to hit shelves with an official release date and bonus features, including two new audio commentaries.

Get A Double Dose of Carrie When Scream Factory Releases Carrie/The Rage: Carrie 2 To Bluray This April!!

25 February 2015 12:08 PM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Don’t we all love us some telekinetic teenage angst? The gang over at Scream Factory certainly do, and are set unleash a double dose of Carrie White onto Bluray, when the double feature of 2002’s Angela Bettis-led Carrie adaption and Kat Shea’s 1999 Carrie sequel, The Rage: Carrie 2 hits shelves on April 14th. While last year saw yet another adaption of Stephen King’s classic novel, the 2002 version was a lot closer to the source material and though nothing will top Brian De Palma’s 1976 Carrie, the Bettis-led version is quite entertaining. Plus, with scenes like seeing one of the kids from Home Improvement getting his balls impaled in The Rage: Carrie 2, what’s not to like about that one?
