One of the leaders of a militaristic Christian group is facing dozens of child sexual abuse charges in New Mexico, where authorities have alleged he raped a 7-year-old girl he was caring for at least four times a week for two years, People confirms.

British Blues Legend John Mayall Keeps a Musical Legacy Alive with New Album Talk About That

When it comes to British blues, all roads lead to John Mayall. As a multi-instrumentalist, he delivered a shot of pure Chicago-style directly to the heart of the nation’s capital, jumpstarting a movement that re-defined the genre. As a bandleader, he mentored some of the biggest names in rock history.

Having honed his craft backing Delta greats Johnny Lee Hooker and Sonny Boy Williams on their first English tours in the early 1960s, Mayall added his daring artistic spirit and amped-up wattage to his own band, the Bluesbreakers. The seminal group became a cornerstone of the burgeoning blues scene in London,

200 Greatest Horror Films (120-111)

Special Mention: Clean, Shaven

Directed by Lodge H. Kerrigan

Screenplay by Lodge H. Kerrigan

1993, USA

Genre: Crime / Psychological Thriller

Lodge H. Kerrigan’s Clean, Shaven is not an easy film to watch. Kerrigan, who wrote, produced and directed this unsettling psychological thriller, traps us inside the mind of a madman for the entire viewing experience. Peter Winter (Peter Greene) appears to be a killer–even worse, a child killer–but not much about him is objectively clear, and we are never sure if what we are seeing is real or a product of his tormented imagination. The film heightens the tension by restricting its focus to Peter’s unsettling, confused, and angry view of the world. The most gruesome violence inflicted on Peter comes by his own hand. In the most unforgettable scene, Peter slowly mutilates his body in order to remove what he believes are a receiver in his

Bryan Singer Looks Back at 20 Years of ‘The Usual Suspects’ at San Pedro Fest

Bryan Singer Looks Back at 20 Years of ‘The Usual Suspects’ at San Pedro Fest
San Pedro, Calif. — Director Bryan Singer reminisced about “The Usual Suspects” Friday night as a 20th anniversary screening of his Oscar-winning sophomore effort kicked off the 4th annual San Pedro International Film Festival. The film has a unique connection to the city as many iconic scenes were shot in and around the area, with iconic scenes taking place at the Korean Liberty Bell and the Port of Los Angeles.

“I only knew it would be better than [my first film] ‘Public Access,’ because I had better actors,” Singer said during a post-screening Q&A. “You have no idea if a movie is going to have any longevity or a cult classic nature. None of that ever occurred to me.”

Indeed, many of the film’s memorable moments happened less by design than spontaneity and serendipity. He recalled, for instance, the oft-mentioned story of actor Benicio del Toro showing up on set with a

120 Essential Horror Scenes Part 3: Mutilations

It’s what most horror films are known for: the gore that splatters on the screen. But when done right, the flying viscera becomes more than just gallons of red stuff, it becomes a chilling reminder of the fragility of the human body and of the ingenuity of filmmakers in making our most twisted fears and fantasies into a stomach churning reality. Grab your barf bag!

Antichrist (2009)- His and her pain

As far as horror sub-genres go, torture porn is up there with found footage as the most understandably reviled by audiences. With Antichrist, Lars Von Trier attempted to write a film that dealt with his personal demons. Confessing that he had been suffering from depression while writing the screenplay, Trier ended up bringing torture porn to its logical conclusion by taking the title of the sub-genre all too literally and creating a macabre near-masterpiece out of trashy genre origins.

'New Girl' Season 4 finale is all about refusing to make a 'Clean Break'

'New Girl' Season 4 finale is all about refusing to make a 'Clean Break'
I write about "New Girl" only under two circumstances: When Sepinwall is hospitalized or when Sepinwall is on vacation. And even then, I still only write about "New Girl" under two circumstances: When it's a premiere or a finale and therefore there are plot points that maybe could stand some discussion. Fortunately, Sepinwall is on vacation and, at least so far as I know -- Knock wood! -- his health is fine. However, Tuesday (May 5) night marked the fourth season finale for "New Girl," so I guess "Clean Break" is as good a time as any to write a few words about the state of "New Girl." "Clean Break."  As it says above, "Clean Break" is the title of the finale. It's not "Clean, Shaven," as I initially typed, because "Clean, Shaven" is an intense film from recently prolific cable TV helmer Lodge Kerrigan, featuring a marvelous performance by Peter Greene.

3 On 3: The best songs of Fleetwood Mac... and Christine McVie vs. Stevie Nicks

  • Hitfix
Last night, Fleetwood Mac kicked off their reunion tour. No, not last year's reunion. Or those other ones. This stint actually features Christine McVie for the first time since 1998, the singer/keyboardist being the last piece of the puzzle that brings together one of the most iconic lineups in Fleetwood Mac history, circa "Rumours." The band is apparently planning on recording another album together, though it can't be expected until next year at the earliest. But this makes us think through almost two dozen studio albums, starting with 1968's (first) self-titled set through 2003's "Say You Will." (Many of those are pre-Lindsey Buckingham/Stevie Nicks, but give that first album, "English Rose," and "Then Play On" a spin, if you only know "Rumours" or haven't given the rest a fair shake.) Three HitFix teamers share our thoughts on the Mac Attack, including the ultimate showdown: McVie or Nicks? And

Movie Easter Eggs: Volume 4 – 20 Years of Pulp Fiction

Since the release of DVDs in the late ‘90s and freeze frame technology becoming highly accessible, movie makers and manufacturers have been hiding secrets for viewers to discover. Every genre and every studio has likely done it by now; we’ve started to compile them all in a series of posts with the help of the Internet. Happy hunting!

It’s the Pulp Fiction special edition where all the Easter eggs will be from, you guessed it, Pulp Fiction. A few of these are new to me, 20 years later I’m telling you, Pulp Fiction is one of the most layered movies ever made.

The Movie: Pulp Fiction (1994)

The Eggs: Unfortunate Lady

I laughed at this, then felt bad. In the film Reservoir Dogs when Tim Roth and Harvey Keitel are escaping from the failed heist, they pull over a lady in a car who shoots Roth before she is taken care of.

'Get the Gimp': Breaking Down 'Pulp Fiction's Most Notorious Scene
Pulp Fiction has become so canonized as a modern classic, it's easy to forget how transgressive it was on its release twenty years ago. But when Quentin Tarantino's film debuted at the Cannes Film Festival in May 1994, it thrilled and shocked the audience in equal measures.

'Pulp Fiction,' A to Z

No scene upended more expectations than the pawn shop sequence (Spoiler Alert — if you haven't ever seen the movie, this is the moment when you should stop reading and go do that. Really! It's streaming on Netflix!

31 Days of Horror: 100 Greatest Horror Films: Top 75

Every year, we here at Sound On Sight celebrate the month of October with 31 Days of Horror; and every year, I update the list of my favourite horror films ever made. Last year, I released a list that included 150 picks. This year, I’ll be upgrading the list, making minor alterations, changing the rankings, adding new entries, and possibly removing a few titles. I’ve also decided to publish each post backwards this time for one reason: the new additions appear lower on my list, whereas my top 50 haven’t changed much, except for maybe in ranking. I am including documentaries, short films and mini series, only as special mentions – along with a few features that can qualify as horror, but barely do.

Directed by Benjamin Christensen

Denmark / Sweden, 1922

Interview: A conversation with filmmaker Shane Ryan

Tom Jolliffe chats with independent filmmaker Shane Ryan....

California born indie filmmaker Shane Ryan has been directing films for 10 years now. Raised on a steady diet of Jean-Claude Van Damme films and an innate love of all types of cinema, Ryan has gained some success and no small amount of notoriety in his career as a film maker. His first major breakthrough was the exploitation flick, Amateur Pornstar Killer. This would spawn two sequels. He’s courted controversy from films like this, but also dealing with issues like child murder as well as pedophilia in some films. His recent film, My Name Is ‘A’ by Anonymous is based on the real life murder of Elizabeth Olten (a famous case in America in 2009) focusing on the convicted killer, 15 year old Alyssa Bustamente. The film, finished in 2011, still awaits distribution. Shane took the time to answer a few questions about his career thus far.

The Kill Hole Movie Review

The Kill Hole Movie Review
Title: The Kill Hole Director: Mischa Webley Starring: Chadwick Boseman, Billy Zane, Tory Kittles, Peter Greene, Dennis Adkins, Ted Rooney The ghost of Christopher Dorner, the former Los Angeles police officer who held the imaginations of television news producers captive for a week several weeks ago when he went on a rampgage, shooting several cops and their family members as part of a twisted statement of grievance, hangs over “The Kill Hole,” a well meaning indie drama of post-traumatic stress disorder and ex-military account-settling. Despite a fairly convincing evocation of mood by writer-director Mischa Webley, this spare yet affected tale never ripens past the point of a wobbly character study. It’s a half-developed [ Read More ]

The Guardian first film award 2013: the shortlist

We reveal the 10 debut films in the frame, which include a documentary that doubles as a thriller, an urban drama set in east London, and a postmodern horror

Each year, the Guardian does its bit to contribute to the annual hysteria that is the movie awards season; though ours steers clear of glitzy dance routines, on-camera meltdowns and off-colour jokes about interpersonal relationships.

The Guardian first film award is designed to reward debut directors whose films went on release during 2012 in UK cinemas (festival screenings don't count), and the rollcall of previous winners comprises Joanna Hogg's Unrelated, Gideon Koppel's Sleep Furiously, Clio Barnard's The Arbor and, last year, The Guard, directed by John Michael McDonagh. There may have been a preponderance of British films there, but Britishness is certainly not a requirement: we are looking for ambition of theme, originality of vision, and proficiency of achievement. In other words,

How Mumford & Sons became the biggest band in the world

They have entertained Barack Obama at the White House and their latest album Babel is the fastest-selling in the Us this year. How have four polite Englishmen made their hoedown folk such a hit?

Soundcheck for the band, today, takes place at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. It is late afternoon and while the arena's 17,000 outdoor seats are still empty the four members of Mumford & Sons – prospering British folk band, in the middle of a long tour of Australia, the Us and the UK, their newly released album Babel a smash on all fronts – wander to centre stage. First singer and guitarist Marcus Mumford, wearing a black suit, then bassist Ted Dwane, in leather bomber and T-shirt. Next bearded banjo player Winston Marshall, his blue flannel shirt hanging loose, and pianist Ben Lovett, wrapped in a woollen coat.

Mumford begins to perform, a murmured cover of a country song,

Favorite Fall Rock Music!

Not all that glitters is gold on the radio, and often one must scratch below the glossy surface of the neatly pressed and homogenous music business where TV pop stars litter radio playlists. Thankfully there is a growing number of outlets that cater to every type of rock music. Here are some of my favorite new releases from October culled from press releases, Spotify playlists, satellite radio, and peer recommendations.

 "3-6-9" Cat Power Sun (Matador) - Still measured genius after all these years; six years in fact since The Greatest. My favorite track is this upbeat, haunting, multi-layered, auto-tuned, electronica-tinged sing-a-long. This is the sound of New Jack City in the 21st century. More Pj than Joni, Ms. Chan Marshall brings the noise and funk on her ninth CD, and in doing so, raises the bar for her musical peers, both genders.

"Ramada Inn" Neil Young Psychedelic Pill (Reprise) - Wtf?
