Review: Evilspeak (Blu-ray)

20 June 2014 2:25 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Evilspeak wasn’t a film I grew up with, although it was one of those movies that I had always heard a lot about- mostly due to its ‘outrageously graphic’ content, which a good portion of ended up on the cutting room floor back in 1981. The cult classic has finally been resurrected in high definition, courtesy of Scream Factory, in a presentation befitting all of Clint Howard’s Satan-fueled nerd rage and gory aftermath that followed.

Howard plays Stanley Coopersmith, an orphan who is constantly bullied at the military academy that he is forced to attend after his parents were killed in an automobile accident. Stanley is the very definition of awkward, which makes it all the easier for his classmates (and even teachers) to pick on him and torment him mercilessly. While cleaning out the chapel’s basement on campus one afternoon, Stanley stumbles upon an ancient spell book »

‘Evilspeak’ Blu-ray Review (Scream Factory)

27 May 2014 3:05 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Clint Howard, R.G. Armstrong, Joe Cortese, Claude Earl Jones, Haywood Nelson, Don Stark, Charles Tyner, Hamilton Camp, Louie Gravance, Jim Greenleaf, Lynn Hancock, Loren Lester | Written by Eric Weston, Joseph Garofalo | Directed by Eric Weston

From the 1970’s and 80’s to now, one thing will always be a sad constant: bullies will always exist. And there will always be that weak-willed teenager who is the constant target of these awful people. But, there’s always this fulfillment that comes about from films like Patrick and Carrie, that the bullied kid has a tendency to lash out at those who oppress them with otherworldly forces. These kids search outward for any escape and that leads them to some very dark corners. In the case of Evilspeak, that dark corner is The Devil himself, and the results are typically gory and fantastically outrageous.

Put simply, Evilspeak, is about a thousand pounds »

First Look At Bryce Dallas Howard In Official Jurassic World Set Images

23 April 2014 11:01 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Photographer, Chuck Zlotnick, has snapped some great images from the set of Jurassic World. One of them includes Clint Howard's niece, Bryce Dallas Howard. She's also the daughter of Ron Howard, who directed Rush. Let's be honest, Clint Howard is the big star of this family affair, right? Anyway, we also have a Jurassic Park jeep, which should remind us of the good times we felt after viewing the first film, and hopefully make us forget the disappointment of the sequels.  Lastly, an image of a chair looking over the gorgeous Hawaiian set.  “Yesterday I was under a construction crane with Chris Pratt, covered with dirt, eyeballing the exact height of the dinosaur trying to kill him,” Colin Trevorrow told EW. “We both cracked up laughing. Sometimes you just have to stop and let the joy take over.” Jurassic World is being directed by Colin Trevorrow, from a screenplay »

That Guy From That Movie: 10 Unsung Character Actors

21 April 2014 10:25 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Much like any business model the movie industry has a distinct hierarchy, especially when it comes to acting. At the top, you have the A-listers; famous names that can open a movie and put butts in seats. Then you have the respected thespians that are renowned for a solid body of work built up over a number of years. Then there are recognizable character actors, a trusted presence frequently used to bolster an ensemble cast. Then, there are ‘those guys’.

You know the ones; actors that you’ve seen cropping up in countless movies over the years in smaller supporting roles, but never taking the lead part or giving a showy performance. Plenty of people will know the face but not the name, but when they appear on-screen you’ll say ‘it’s that guy from that movie!’. These hard-working journeymen are some of the unsung heroes of cinema, and »

Watch: Ashley Bell, Clint Howard on their attraction to 'Sparks'

11 April 2014 3:28 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) Actors Ashley Bell and Clint Howard stopped by the Cbr Speakeasy in Los Angeles to discuss noir superhero film "Sparks," directed by Christopher Folino and based on the graphic novel of the same name. It's very possible fans will know Bell and Howard from their work in other films and television shows -- Bell plays Nell Sweetzer in "The Last Exorcism" series and portrayed Karina in webisodes for "The Walking Dead," while Howard's lengthy career in film and television includes credits in everything from "Apollo 13" and "Frost/Nixon" to "Star Trek" and Disney's "The Jungle Book." In "Sparks," Bell took on the role of Lady Heavenly, the vigilante romantic interest of Sparks, while Howard plays Gordon Eldridge, the head of the newspaper. During their interview with Cbr Executive Producer Jonah Weiland, Bell and Howard discussed the draw of "Sparks" and the challenge of bringing superheroes to life on a budget. »

Today’s feature includes a clip from Alice D, a call for submissions from the London Horror Festival, trailers for Fractured, Too Young to Die, and Ghostline, first details for Imaginapped and Grimmerson Manor, and a Q&A with Jacqui Holland:

First Clip from Alice D: “In the late 1890s the Davenport House was a famous and successful brothel, until a young prostitute named Alice killed herself there. After her death, the brothel became haunted by Alice’s ghost, and was eventually abandoned.

More than a century later, the old structure is renovated into a beautiful mansion. It is still rumored to inhabit the ghost of Alice. Despite this, the new owner; the rich and arrogant heir to the Davenport fortune, decides to throw a wild party for his first night in the house. »

Premiere Photos: Christopher Folino’s Sparks

17 March 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Underground Film Journal | See recent Underground Film Journal news »

Sparks is a phenomenal new period superhero movie co-directed by Christopher Folino and Todd Burrows. It stars Chase Williamson as the title hero, Ashley Bell, Clancy Brown, Jake Busey, William Katt and Clint Howard. It is currently playing in limited theatrical release — and is well worth seeing in the theater — and streaming on iTunes.

The Underground Film Journal’s Executive Editor, Mike Everleth, attended a special screening on March 16 during the movie’s opening weekend, at which filmmaker Folino and stars Bell, Katt and Howard were in attendance. The photo above and those in the gallery below were all taken at this event.

Folino previously solo directed the award-winning indie comedy Gamers, which the Journal was a fan and supporter of back in the day. (Gamers is also currently streaming on Amazon.)

As enjoyable as Gamers is, Sparks is a tremendous leap in content, style and execution. Based on the »

Examining the prison movies of Sylvester Stallone

14 March 2014 7:43 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Odd List Ryan Lambie 17 Mar 2014 - 06:02

With Escape Plan out today, we look back at the strange prominence of prisons in Sylvester Stallone movies...

In his blockbuster movies, Tom Cruise likes to ride motorcycles and run with his fingers outstretched. Jean-Claude Van Damme likes to wear tight lycra and do the splits a lot. Arnold Schwarzenegger likes to make that sort of guttural "graargh" noise when he gets into fights.

Sylvester Stallone, on the other hand, has his own set of interests and habits. He likes to fire machine guns one-handed, scream while flying helicopters, and making a "hurgh!" noise when he does something athletic. Also, he has a tendency to star in films that involve prisons.

Now, admittedly, Stallone's appeared in lots of films where there's no sign of jail cells, sadistic prison wardens or metal trays with hideous food piled up on them. But then again, he has appeared in these. »
