Fantasia Film Festival Review: Slash

18 July 2016 3:31 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

A futuristic wasteland, the setting for an encounter between a sci-fi hero and his arch nemesis. As the hero and the protagonist get closer to fight, they sense an attraction to each other,..and begin to passionately kiss. Sounds like a good setup for a Fantasia Film Festival film, right? So the story goes from Neil (Michael Johnston, Teen Wolf), a young freshman who spends his time writing fan-fiction set in the world of Vanguard, his favorite series. An outsider at school, taunted and made fun by cooler kids with cooler reputations, Neil is lost within his world of Vanguard, penning his own stories, bringing the homoerotic subtext to the forefront, but too ashamed of sharing it with anyone.

Neil’s bashful and low self-esteem demeanor is put to the test when he meets the free spirited Julia (Hannah Marks, Southbound), a tough as nails fellow fan fiction writer who »

Donald Trump offered praise to an unlikely public figure at a North Carolina rally on Tuesday night. "He was a bad guy - really bad guy," Trump said about former President of Iraq, Saddam Hussein. "But you know what he did well? He killed terrorists. He did that so good. They didn't read them the rights. They didn't talk. They were terrorists. Over. Today, Iraq is Harvard for terrorism." One of Trump's most vocal opponents, Democratic counterpart Hillary Clinton immediately took issue with his comments, saying in a statement - obtained by People - from her Senior policy advisor that »

Match Game: Season One Ratings

27 June 2016 1:33 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Though the show was created in the 1960s, most people remember the version of Match Game from the 1970s. Can ABC recreate the ratings magic of that version in 2016? Will this version be cancelled or renewed for a second season? Stay tuned.

Hosted by Alec Baldwin, Match Game features contestants trying to match the answers to "fill in the blank" questions with as many celebrities as they can. The grand prize is $25,000. Celebrity panelists include Michael Ian Black, Tituss Bugess, Sutton Foster, Debra Messing, Rosie O'Donnell, and Jb Smoove.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- typically around 11:30am Est/8:30am Pst. Refresh to see the latest. »

And the cast of the series (which Lindhome and Leggero describe as “if the Kardashians moved into Downton Abbey”) is an impressive list of names that includes Michael Ian Black, Paget Brewster and Christina Hendricks, as well as Leggero and Lindhome, »

[Montclair Review] Slash

12 May 2016 12:31 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Breathing life into a tired genre (coming of age and/or coming out in the American suburbs), Clay Liford’s Slash is an authentic portrait of a young man exploring his sexuality in a healthy way while actually not having sex. A kinder gentler picture than Liford’s horror comedy Wuss, Slash follows the adventures of 15-year old Neil (Michael Johnston) who pens erotic fan fiction about a masculine comic book hero Vanguard. In his postings he’s essentially kicking the bucket as he brings the story’s homoerotic subtext to the surface, trying it on for size.

Neil, though, is unsure of himself and the film thankfully allows him the space to explore this as his parents encourage him to not feel shame even as his private diary is made public in class. He finds himself a mentor in the older and cooler Julia (Hannah Marks), a girl from »
