Stage Door: Audra's Toes, "Sweeney Peron", Busch's Hepburn and "Big Fish"

4 November 2011 3:19 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Audra McDonald rehearsing for "Porgy & Bess"Theater geeks who read The Film Experience (there be crossover!) might have been wondering what happened to the stage door column. The truth is we just haven't been seeing much. This is never a question of "nothing to see" but always a matter of finances and for one quarter of each year the the not-so-small matter of Oscar Mania keeping us busy with pre-recorded actors instead of live ones. But when I'm not seeing it I enjoy it vicariously through avid theatergoing friends and through blogs. My favorite is The Broadway Blog so if you're into theater, check it out. Here's four quick film / theater crossover tidbits I wanted to share. 

Audra in Rampart

I practically shrieked with surprised delight when Broadway baby Audra McDonald showed up in Oren Moverman's Rampart. She just kills her one scene role as Woody Harrelson's latest conquest. »

Blu-ray Review: Stake Land – Not Just Another Vampire Flick

16 October 2011 11:58 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

From the earliest days of cinema the vampire film has formed a rich heritage in which it has evolved with the times mirroring the fears of each decade and capturing the imagination of audiences. With its in-built folklore there are few people who are unfamiliar with the iconography of the genre.

Vampires have never been as popular as they are now, particularly with the successes of the Twilight Saga, Let The Right One In and TV shows True Blood and The Vampire Diaries showing there are many ways to approach the subject. Director Jim Mickle, with this only his second feature film following his directorial debut Mulberry Street, has attempted to put a fresh spin on the genre by adding a post-apocalyptic setting for his film Stake Land, released on Blu-ray and DVD today.

The America of Stake Land is a lost nation. When an epidemic of vampirism strikes, humans »

DVD Review: Stake Land

Stake Land

Stars: Connor Paolo, Nick Damici, Danielle Harris, Kelly McGillis, Sean Nelson, Michael Cerveris | Written by Jim Mickle, Nick Damici | Directed by Jim Mickle

Does it need pointing out that vampires are in vogue right now? It seems like one can’t move these days without stumbling upon a new film, television programme or book featuring nasty bloodsucking beasties.  And as I mentioned in my Priest review, post-apocalyptic movies aren’t exactly in short supply either. So to be faced with a post-apocalyptic-vampire movie is to be faced with what could well be an overfamiliar if not dull affair. But Stake Land, despite its less than original trappings, is not a movie to be hastily overlooked.

Following a vampire epidemic (which is left unexplained), much of civilised America has been destroyed and abandoned. What little remains of humanity exists in small, isolated and increasingly desperate communities. It is in »

Tales from Beyond the Pale: Season 1 Available Now! Exclusive Trailer!

12 October 2011 11:01 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

The first season of Glass Eye Pix's wildly successful and thoroughly badass audio theater presentation of Tales from Beyond the Pale is available Now, and we've got an exclusive trailer for you to dig on to get you geared up for this Halloween treat!

From the Press Release:

Conceived during a fog-drenched car ride with nothing beyond the windshield but a horizon-less void, Larry Fessenden and Glenn McQuaid created the acclaimed Tales From Beyond The Pale, audio theater inspired by the vintage radio shows of Alfred Hitchcock and Orson Welles.

“It was very gratifying to challenge these artists to step outside their chosen medium and explore the world of audio storytelling and to get everyone into production without a long fundraising period. With audio tales the only limitation to production value is imagination,” states Fessenden.

McQuaid adds: “Season One of Tales from Beyond the Pale represents a year-long effort »

Presenting our weekly round-up of all the big news stories from the world of movie superheroes…

It’s been quite an active week from The Dark Knight Rises camp, with several of the film's cast talking (briefly) about Christopher Nolan’s third and final Batman feature; Tom Hardy told The Scotsman that the director “has relative carte blanche with the studio” for the epic conclusion to his trilogy, while Gary Oldman wasn’t giving much away during an interview to promote his latest release, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, apart from to say that it’s going to be “something very special.” Meanwhile, Joseph Gordon-Levitt managed to avoid being drawn into speculation over the identity of his character, ‘John Blake’, with the Inception star refusing to confirm or deny the rumours about him portraying Robin when asked directly by both MTV News and Jay Leno.

23 September 2011 8:53 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Movie Newz via The Man Of Steel Facebook Page has learned that Fringe actor Michael Cerveris is being considered for the role of Lex Luthor. According to the site his role in Man of Steel would likely just be a cameo if at all, with him being featured as a major villain in the sequel.

From Movie Newz: Character actor Michael Cerveris, best known for playing The Observer on the Fox television show ‘Fringe’, can be added to the list of names being considered for the role of Superman’s arch-nemeses Lex Luthor, however, the self-proclaimed “Greatest criminal mind of our time” wont likely appear until the Man of Steel follow-up.

J.J. Abrams is temporarily dispatching Fringe‘s ubiquitous Observer to his new drama Person of Interest.

Blu-Ray Review: Horror Fans Must Take the Trip to ‘Stake Land’

4 August 2011 1:18 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Forget “Zombieland,” “Stake Land” is a much scarier place to be. Jim Mickle’s smart, atmospheric vampire thriller has been given a stellar Blu-ray treatment from Dark Sky Films and is quite simply the horror HD release of the year so far. Horror fans are often (justifiably) complaining about the current state of the drama but “Stake Land” should silence them for at least a few days.

Blu-Ray Rating: 4.5/5.0

Stake Land” is a confident, smart piece of filmmaking that will surely find a much-wider audience on Blu-ray and DVD than it did in its very-brief theatrical release (where it made a shockingly-small $23k Total). It’s an incredibly-promising film from a talented director and I hope that it doesn’t get lost in the shuffle. This is the kind of release that I think could suffer the most from the death of the local video store. I should I »

Fantasia 2011: Post-collapse ‘Stake Land’ mixes pulp violence with real-world unease

19 July 2011 11:25 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Stake Land

Written by Jim Mickle and Nick Damici

Directed by Jim Mickle

USA, 2010

A recent 60 Minutes report puts forth a startling figure: thanks to the high unemployment rate, soon 25% of all children in the United States will be living under the poverty line, many of them resorting to temporary shelter to survive. With the spectre of economic collapse – or at least sustained calamity – haunting anyone who pays enough attention to current events in this hemisphere, the post-apocalyptic narrative might well be an increasingly resonant one. That goes double for Jim Mickle’s Stake Land, a post-collapse vampire fable whose cultural landscape is eerily familiar.

Martin (Connor Paolo), not unlike the kids in the above story, grew up amidst newly emerged hard times. As his stoic narration tells it (and a flashback soon confirms), his parents were gruesomely murdered by the deformed vampires (commonly referred to as “vamps”) who sprang »

Claybourne Elder Wows New York With Tennessee Tour de Force

21 June 2011 10:13 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

In the New Group and Tectonic Theater Project’s Off-Broadway production of Tennessee Williams’ One Arm, Claybourne Elder plays Ollie, a chiseled and charming young Navy boxer, and he’s a total knockout in the role.

The 6-foot-1 out actor from Springville, Utah, pulls no punches in depicting how Ollie loses his right arm in an auto accident and then turns to a life of prostitution and prison. Based on Williams’ 1940s short story and 1967 unproduced screenplay, One Arm has been lovingly adapted into an 85-minute one-act and championed by another theatrical heavyweight: Moisés Kaufman.

Claybourne Elder (Photo credit: Andrew Parsons and Serge Nivelle)

Kaufman, the openly gay, Tony- and Emmy-nominated writer/director (33 Variations and The Laramie Project), says One Arm is “one of the frankest portrayals of the homosexual world that Tennessee lived in. And that made me want to do it. For the most part, gay characters in »

Stake Land review

16 June 2011 8:29 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Stake Land brings the undead back to the big screen, and doesn't do too bad a job, either. Here's Mark's review...

After the largely overlooked box office bomb, Priest, 2011's second helping of vampires, religion and Western tropes comes in the grimy package of Stake Land, an indie horror film that's worlds away from Scott Stewart's film.

Although there's a substantial amount of thoughtfulness in this film and its world-building, it's entirely irresistible to compare the film to 2009's zom-edy, Zombieland. This is partly because of the narration, partly because of the characters, but mostly because the monsters are bloody zombies.

Let's be generous and say that the film's monsters are, at least, an unholy hybrid of vampires and zombies, nicknamed "vamps", which have overtaken most of America's population. Mister, played by Nick Damici, is a vampire hunter who lives a Spartan existence, trekking across the devastated States in constant vigilance. »
