Theodore J. Flicker, Filmmaker and ‘Barney Miller’ Co-Creator, Dies at 84

15 September 2014 12:39 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Theodore J. Flicker, a filmmaker whose eclectic career included the Cold War comedy “The President’s Analyst” and the much-loved ABC comedy “Barney Miller,” died Sept. 13 at his home in Santa Fe, N.M. He was 84.

Flicker’s family told the Santa Fe New Mexican that the writer-helmer died in his sleep.

Flicker moved into Hollywood after working with an improvisational group in New York that he co-founded, the Premise. Members including future showbiz notables George Segal, Joan Darling and Buck Henry. The group helped Flicker produce his first film, the indie cult classic “The Troublemaker” (1964).

Flicker directed episodes of a handful of TV series, including “The Dick Van Dyke Show,” got his first break in features by co-writing the Elvis Presley feature “Spinout” (1966) and then really broke through with 1967 comedy “The President’s Analyst,” an offbeat send-up of the era’s obsession with thrillers, spies and psychoanalysis that Flicker wrote and directed. »

The Frontier Is the Setting for a Tense Family Reunion

9 September 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

To properly convey how much time Professor Sean Sullivan (Max Gail) spends verbalizing his stream of consciousness and/or reading Walt Whitman aloud in The Frontier would be difficult. His estranged son, a ranch hand who goes by his middle name of Tennessee (Coleman Kelly) and has come to visit the old man because he senses his father is ill, calls the professor's chatter The Sean Sullivan Show -- the urge to change the channel is strong. Recognizing the need to filter these rambling thoughts, the retiree hires Nina (Anastassia Sendyk) as an apprentice/editor to assist him with his memoirs. As father and son argue endlessly about why Tennessee left the homestead in the first place, audiences will be made to feel as uncomfortable by this tense, impromptu f »

‘Dark House’ Review

11 March 2014 3:31 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Luke Kleintank, Tobin Bell, Alex McKenna, Anthony Rey Perez, Zack Ward, Lacey Anzelc, Ethan S. Smith, Lesley-Anne Down, Charles Agron, Daniel Ross Owens, Max Gail, Patricia Belcher | Written by Victor Salva, Charles Agron | Directed by Victor Salva

As a fan of the Jeepers Creepers movies I’m always interested in what Victor Salva will come up with next, and this can be a good and bad thing.  Dark House is his latest movie which he directs and co-wrote the screenplay for and I have to admit that it is an interesting film, if you are a fan of Supernatural or shows like it that focus on a fairly lightweight battle between good and evil.  With Tobin Bell starring, Dark House is also is likely to pull in some of the Saw fans too.

Nick Di Santo (Luke Kleintank) is a man with a gift, he’s able to see »

A Once Haunted Dark House Opening in March

7 January 2014 9:30 AM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Way back in November of 2011 we told you about Haunted, a Victor Salva flick starring Saw's Tobin Bell. Years passed. Things changed. The flick has a new title, Dark House (not to be confused with the kick-ass Darin Scott film of the same name), and it's on its way home.

Bell (pictured) stars alongside Leslie-Anne Down (Rosewood Lane) and Luke Kleintank ("Bones") in his first feature role. Anthony Rey Perez (Don't Pass Me By), Alex McKenna ("90210"), Zack Ward ("In My Pocket") and Max Gail ("Barney Miller," "Gary Unmarried") co-star.

Look for it in stores on March 11, 2014.

Synopsis

When Nick Di Santo learns that his father is not only alive but can possibly reveal the origin of his son's dark gift, he sets out on a trip that takes him to an abandoned mansion he thought only existed in his childhood imagination.
