Most Terrifying On-Screen Possessions

20 August 2014 4:43 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Bring the theme of demonic possession into any film and you’re guaranteed to induce fear and unease into your viewing audience. Film-makers continuously push the boundaries of possession and exorcism portrayal, creating characters that haunt us for a long time after viewing. Deliver Us From Evil, released August 20th, introduces us to a whole host of real-life demonic possession cases, but here are some of the most frightening to date. The Last Exorcism (2010) One that’ll certainly make you wince, Reverend Marcus (Patrick Fabian) is asked by farmer Louis (Louis Herthum) to perform an exorcism on his daughter Nell, played by Ashley Bell. Under possession by the demon Abalam, Nell attacks family members, kills a cat and draws creepy pictures that foreshadow some of the awful events that are yet to occur. The worst part, however, is definitely when Nell/Abalam breaks three of her fingers.  Rec (2007) One of the lesser known films, »

Deliver Us From Evil: A Complete Guide To Scott Derrickson’s Paranormal Films

20 June 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Marvel universe recently got a whole lot darker when they announced that Scott Derrickson would be directing the upcoming Doctor Strange film, but before he takes a crack at that blockbuster, he’ll be looking to scare viewers senseless once again with one of the summer’s most talked about horror films — Deliver Us From Evil. Based on real-life NYPD sergeant Ralph Sarchie’s personal accounts, Derrickson brings to life a true story about possessions, terrors, and evil forces that unfolded in the Bronx in New York City. From the footage we’ve seen, all signs point to a spookily satanic “true story” that shows a completely hidden side of the Big Apple, but ever since Derrickson was named director, we knew Deliver Us From Evil was in good hands.

Satan, exorcisms, death, hauntings — all these genre tools are old hat for Derrickson. Hellraiser: Inferno marked the director’s first feature film, »

(Cbr) Actors Ashley Bell and Clint Howard stopped by the Cbr Speakeasy in Los Angeles to discuss noir superhero film "Sparks," directed by Christopher Folino and based on the graphic novel of the same name.

In "Sparks," Bell took on the role of Lady Heavenly, the vigilante romantic interest of Sparks, while Howard plays Gordon Eldridge, the head of the newspaper. During their interview with Cbr Executive Producer Jonah Weiland, Bell and Howard discussed the draw of "Sparks" and the challenge of bringing superheroes to life on a budget. »

Sparks is a phenomenal new period superhero movie co-directed by Christopher Folino and Todd Burrows.

Eight of the Creepiest Cults in Horror Cinema

10 March 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

When it comes to scary, it’s not the monsters or ghosts that do it for me. The most terrifying thing is an individual who can convince an entire group of people to follow one belief. Even more terrifying than the leader are the people within the group, whose views are so extreme that they are willing to do whatever it takes to fulfill a prophecy.   Recently, cults have made their way back onto our screens with the hit HBO series True Detective and the upcoming Ti West horror feature The Sacrament. In honor of my cult fascination, I take a look at some of the creepiest cults in the horror genre, and learn that evil always prevails.     To the Devil…a Daughter (1976)   When a father is trying to save his daughter from Satanists, naturally he would seek help from a writer who specializes in the occult.

Indie Trailer Sunday: Chase Williamson in Superhero Thriller 'Sparks'

9 March 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"1948 - I remember that year well... It was the year I met her... And it was the year a serial killer came to my town." Today's indie trailer is for a dark superhero or super powers action-thriller titled Sparks, from co-directors Todd Burrows & Christopher Folino. Up-and-coming actor Chase Williamson (John Dies at the End and "Video Game High School") plays Ian Sparks, a masked vigilante who "discovers the dark side to heroism." IMDb's synopsis leaves out the super-powered group Rochester 13, but they're in this trailer. The cast includes Ashley Bell, Clancy Brown, Jake Busey, William Katt, Marina Squerciati. I'm curious about it. Watch the official trailer for Todd Burrows & Christopher Folino's Sparks, in high def from Apple: "Supers like me had kept this town safe..." After a radioactive meteor strikes Earth, a genetically altered group, known as The Rochester 13, gain astonishing, superhuman powers. Ian Sparks (Williamson) doesn't feel remotely super. »

‘Love & Air Sex’ an overly familiar romantic comedy with a unique backdrop

27 February 2014 9:15 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Love & Air Sex

Written by Bryan Poyser, David DeGrow Shotwell, and Steven Walters

Directed by Bryan Poyser

USA, 2013

Watching the new independent romantic dramedy Love & Air Sex, it’s easy to drift a bit to the memorable sight gag from an early-season episode of The Simpsons. In that story, the raging-id child Bart is running for class president, and Homer has decided to help on the campaign, drawing up a poster with the following tagline: “Sex! Now that I have your attention, vote for Bart.” The notion that even the mention of sex would distract a person enough to stay around for a potentially more nuanced message is likely part of what fueled the creation of Love & Air Sex, which promises to be more salacious than it actually is, instead seeming just like a 21st-century version of About Last Night

The film begins with a fast-paced montage of a couple’s relationship in bloom. »

Love & Air Sex Available on iTunes and VOD Today

7 February 2014 1:43 PM, PST | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

What better way to ring in Valentine’s Day than with a movie that involves air sex? Yes, air sex. Think air guitar, but pretending to have sex with an invisible partner instead of playing an invisible guitar. “Love & Air Sex,” formerly titled “The Bounceback,” hones in on a guy named Stan (Michael Stahl-David). When Stan finds out that his ex, Cathy (Ashley Bell), is planning to visit Kara (Sara Paxton) in Austin, he hops a flight to Texas so that perhaps he just might bump into her there. Making his effort even less discreet, Kara and her ex, Stan’s good buddy Jeff (Zach Cregger), are in the middle of  [ Read More ]

Exclusive: Climb Into The Banana Hammock With Clip From 'Love & Air Sex'

7 February 2014 7:02 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

In case you were wondering, yes, the Air Sex World Championship is real. As you might guess from the name, it's a competition that started as a parody of a similar Air Guitar event, until it turned into a beast all its own. It's a pretty quirky and unique happening, and co-writer and director Bryan Poser has figured it's a good setting for a comedy. Starring Ashley Bell, Zach Cregger, Sara Paxton, Michael Stahl-David, Addison Timlin, Justin Arnold and Martin Allman, "Love & Air Sex" follows the lovelorn Stan to Austin where he hopes to find his ex-girlfriend, while his best friend Jeff is going through a breakup with Kara. In this clip we get to meet the two men having problems with the women in their life, while also hearing the awesomly profane names of the Air Sex performers in the background. "Love & Air Sex" is now on VOD and opens in limited release today. »

‘Love & Air Sex’ Review: It’s Also an Air Romantic Comedy

6 February 2014 4:15 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

It’s time to declare a moratorium on the tired rom-com stock character dichotomy. For too long, movies both independent and mainstream have relied on leads that fall into one of two types. The first is the average joe, the guy/gal who is grounded, hesitant in matters romantic, and often quietly artistic. These are usually, though not always, the protagonists of their stories. The average joe is supposed to be pleasant and relatable, but instead they are boring and too muted to possess any discernible personality. The other type is the partier, the spontaneous, fun-loving, and sex-driven dude/lady. You’ll mostly see them in supporting roles. The partier theoretically provides enjoyable comic relief to the proceedings, but instead they are obnoxious, their every overdone quip grating on the soul. Love and Air Sex pushes this trend to its breaking point, featuring a pair of the boring and a pair of the obnoxious at the core »

The Hilarious Sara Paxton on Going the Distance for 'Love & Air Sex'

6 February 2014 11:23 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Editor's Note: This interview originally ran during the 2013 SXSW Film Festival, where "Love & Air Sex" -- then titled "The Bounceback" -- world premiered. It opens in select theaters this Friday and is available to view on VOD.] You'd be hard pressed to find a more balls to the wall comedic performance at SXSW this year than Sara Paxton's scene-stealing turn in the breakup/makeup romantic comedy "Love & Air Sex." In Bryan Poyser's Austin love letter, Paxton plays Kara, a heavy-metal loving wild child nursing a nasty breakup, who's called upon to come to the aid of her best friend Cathy (Ashley Bell), after Cathy's ex shows up in Austin intent on wooing his old flame back. Best known for her work on the teen and horror film circuits in movies like "Aquamarine," "The Last House on the Left" and "The Innkeepers," Paxton proves in "Love & Air Sex" that screwball comedy is where she truly excels. It's no wonder a character in the movie refers to her as a Goldie Hawn-type. »
