A Definitive Ranking of All of M. Night Shyamalan's Biggest Twists, From 'The Sixth Sense' to 'Split'

A Definitive Ranking of All of M. Night Shyamalan's Biggest Twists, From 'The Sixth Sense' to 'Split'
There's a twisted little reveal at the end of M. Night Shyamalan's multiple personalities horror flick, Split -- though, that shouldn't come as a surprise to fans of the director, as an Omg!-worthy twist in the final act of the film has become his calling card in Hollywood. (Which wasn't always the case, as -- twist! -- he also wrote the script for Stuart Little.) As for how it stacks up against the twists of Shyamalan films past, we won't divulge the ending of Split here, but...

Massive spoilers for all other M. Night Shyamalan films ahead.

For Shyamalan's part, his favorite of his twists is in Signs. "I don’t know why, I find it so spiritual," he told Et. "The guy who lost faith and then remembers what his wife said. Then, he looks around the room and sees that his wife was talking about this moment. It always

Review: Some Kind Of Hate

Bullying has been an absolute virus, steadily grown throughout our nation’s schools within the last decade. Whether it be over the way a kid looks, the type of music he listens to, or hell, just because he exists, the fact is that it’s grown to astronomical proportions, and it’s only a matter of time before those kids strike back. When that does happen, we end up with tragedies such as the ones we’ve had to shockingly endure, like Columbine. The pain, rage and embarrassment of being a bullied teenager has very rarely been addressed in cinema, and when it has, even That was neutered (the “pg-13” cuts of the documentary Bully) . With all of that said, it was only a matter of time before a film, genre or not, would be made, one that takes a brutally honest look at the idea of being bullied, fighting back,

VOD Review – Some Kind of Hate (2015)

Some Kind of Hate, 2015.

Directed by Adam Egypt Mortimer.

Starring Ronen Rubenstein, Sierra McCormick, Grace Phipps, Spencer Breslin, Lexi Atkins, Noah Segan and Michael Polish.

Synopsis:

A bullied teenager is sent to a reform school where he accidentally summons the spirit of a girl, herself a victim of bullying, who takes vengeance on his tormentors.

The saying goes that two wrongs don’t make a right and at the beginning of Some Kind of Hate, one might feel that those two wrongs are bullying and retaliation. But be warned, those two wrongs are actually the acting and the directing.

Some Kind of Hate follows the story of Lincoln (Ronen Rubinstein), a loner who is having some serious issues with bullies, both at home and at school. After violently retaliating when a fellow student pushes him to the ground, Lincoln gets sent to a reform school in the desert where, unsurprisingly,

Some Kind Of Hate: A Slasher With Something to Say

Some Kind Of Hate: A Slasher With Something to Say
A while back, I had a fascinating chat with writer/director Adam Egypt Mortimer about a great comic book called Ballistic. Over the course of said interview, he revealed that his livelihood was in film and horror movies were his wheelhouse. So when Some Kind Of Hate showed up at my door, I could not resist picking his brain on its portrayal of teenage stereotypes, social issues, and doom metal, which in this case are certainly a potent combination. [Note: May contain minor spoilers.]

Famous Monsters. Maybe it’s because I’m a metalhead, but I want to start with the use of music in the film—in the narrative as well as in the soundtrack. Metal plays a large role. There’s even a scene where Lincoln makes Kaitlin a metal playlist. What’s your take on the cliché of heavy metal music leading teens to being violent, and how did you find the

Disturbingly scaring devoted fans of the horror genre through physical and emotional scares can be a challenging task, as many people have become desensitized, and are unable to sympathize with others who are contending with distressing situations.

But actor Spencer Breslin effortlessly collaborated with his co-stars and Adam Egypt Mortimer, who made his feature film writing and directorial debuts on the upcoming horror movie, ‘Some Kind of Hate,’ to create realatable characters and a socially relevant story that audiences can truly appreciate.

Bloodied Bullies Rule the Day in Some Kind of Hate: A Film Review

*full disclosure: an online screener of this film was provided by Rlj Entertainment. **there are some spoilers in this review. Director: Adam Egypt Mortimer. Writers: Brian DeLeeuw and Adam Egypt Mortimer. Cast: Maestro Harrell, Grace Phipps, Spencer Breslin, Sierra McCormick and Lexi Atkins. Some Kind of Hate is an upcoming horror release. To be distributed by Rlj Entertainment, the film had its World Premiere at the Stanley Film Festival, this year. Very intense in nature, the film's story revolves around bullying and a broken protagonist. He summons a demon for protection, dumbfoundedly. From here, the film turns into a slasher feature and gore aspects are a wrist-slashing spectacle. However, a few questions remain, including whether the villain was dispatched by herself or by another. Did she cut her own throat? The supernatural elements are prominent. And, Some Kind of Hate is a satisfying revenge story. Lincoln (Ronen Rubinstein) comes from a broken home.

Icon announce 3 more ‘FrightFest Presents’ titles

Icon Film Distribution and FrightFest have announced a further three films – all of which are personal faves of mine from this years festival – which will be released under the curated banner FrightFest Presents. The new titles are:

Night of the Living Deb, directed by Kyle Rankin starring Maria Thayer (Forgetting Sarah Marshall), Michael Cassidy (Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice), Christopher Marquette (Just Friends, The Girl Next Door) and Ray Wise (Infestation, Twin Peaks).

After a girls’ night out, endearingly awkward Deb wakes up in the apartment of the most attractive guy in Portland, Maine. She’s thrilled, but can’t remember much of what got her there. Ryan only knows it was a mistake, and ushers her out the door into a full-scale zombie apocalypse. Now, a walk of shame becomes a fight for survival as the mismatched pair discovers that the only thing scarier than trusting someone with your life…

Frightfest 2015: ‘Some Kind of Hate’ Review

Stars: Grace Phipps, Spencer Breslin, Lexi Atkins, Sierra McCormick, Ronen Rubinstein, Brando Eaton, Andrew Bryniarski, Noah Segan, Michael Polish, Maestro Harrell, Justin Prentice, Audrey Ellis Fox, Jasper Polish, Josh Ethier | Written by Adam Egypt Mortimer, Brian DeLeeuw | Directed by Adam Egypt Mortimer

If there’s one thing I will take away from this years Frightfest it’s that this was the year that saw the tropes of the slasher movie return to the horror genre with a vengeance. From the strong final girl, to insane, and sometimes supernatural, killers and the idea that the horror movie is as metal as Iron Maiden… so gloriously metal… And nowhere are those three more prevalent than in Some Kind of Hate.

Reminscent of Trick or Treat, the 1986 heavy metal horror starring Marc Price; and Savaged, the supernatural revenge thriller that played Frightfest Glasgow in 2014, Some Kind of Hate sees tightly wound Lincoln – a
