Time Takes A Holiday: The Dr. Who X-Mas Specials in Review

26 December 2012 2:23 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Mixing Sci-Fi and Christmas often has mixed results. Sometimes it works well and sometimes it's forced. This fact is best represented by the Doctor Who Christmas specials, which have become an annual holiday tradition over the past eight years. Some have been awesome and some have been awful. How does this year's special The Snowmen rate? Let's look at the eight specials and see which were Christmas gifts for the fans and which were lumps of coal.

  The Feast of Steven (1965)

Way back in 1965, before Dr. Who Christmas specials became a regular thing, we had "The Feast of Steven", a classic series episode starring William Hartnell as the first Doctor. It was the seventh episode of a 12-part serial called "The Dalek Master Plan", which took up much of the fourth season of the classic show. Since the episode was due to air on Christmas Day, the producers decided that »

Afm 2012: New Stills from Steve Stone's Entity

23 October 2012 11:40 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Entity stars Dervla Kirwan, Charlotte Riley, Branko Tomovic, Oliver Jackson, Rupert Hill, and David Worden.

New Trailer For Steve Stone’s Horror Thriller Entity!

22 October 2012 5:11 AM, PDT | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

We may forget the past, but it never forgets us! We have a completely new trailer for Steve Stone‘s upcoming horror flick (or maybe the right word is paranormal thriller after all?) Entity, which is (unfortunately) still without an official release date. But, it looks pretty cool to me, so I’m here to share some pictures, poster and of course the second trailer for the whole thing. Hope you’ll like it!

In case you’re not so familiar with this project, I will first inform you that it comes from writer and director Stone, who already revealed:

…this is not a foundfootage film – this is something else…

What exactly?

In 1998, thirty four unidentified bodies were found in shallow graves in a remote Siberian forest. After subsequent investigations, no official explanation by the Russian authorities was ever offered about the circumstances of the deaths. The case was closed. »

DVD/Blu-ray: Blackout (15)

17 August 2012 4:00 PM, PDT | The Independent | See recent The Independent news »

Christopher Eccelston has never been afraid to play unsympathetic characters and he's at it again in Bill Gallagher's feverish three-part thriller, playing a drunken, corrupt councillor who on an all-night bender cheats on this long-suffering wife (Dervla Kirwan) and batters a building contractor (David Hayman). The next day he throws himself in front of an assassin's bullet heading towards a witness about to testify against a local drugs gang. The country proclaims him a hero, but they don't know his violent secret yet. A gripping British TV thriller. »

Steve Stone's Entity is Set to Tease: Trailer and Website Launch

27 July 2012 4:00 AM, PDT | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

Director/writer: Steve Stone. Cast: Dervla Kirwan, Charlotte Riley and Branko Tomovic. The foreign-made film, Entity, may well set a new standard for found-footage style films. A mystery surrounds a remote Siberian forest, where 34 bodies were found in shallow graves, and it may not even involve the Tunguska event at all. In an area where a forest was literally flattened, what a team of paranormal investigators from the television show "Darkest Secrets" may find is a region peppered with more than just one mystery. In the teaser trailer, what Ruth Peacock (Dervla Kirwan) and her team of investigators discover nearby is an abandoned building that looks like a hospital. Within it is an eeriness that looks rank with both decay and death. Peacock is definitely sensing something that has her feeling nervous. But in what the other investigators feel, that is relatively unknown until the product releases to video and »

Rewind TV: 7/7: One Day in London; Blackout; When I Get Older; Imagine: Graceland – review

7 July 2012 4:05 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

A film about the 2005 London bombings was all the more powerful for the restraint and integrity shown by its makers. But melodrama and celebrity vacuity were waiting in the wings elsewhere

7/7: One Day in London (BBC2) | iPlayer

Blackout (BBC1) | iPlayer

When I Get Older (BBC1) | iPlayer

Death was treated in worryingly different ways this week on television. First with thoughtfulness, style and dignity, then later on with a patronising crassness; it was like going to two wildly and horribly different funerals.

The first example was Ben Anthony's splendid One Day in London, the re-creation, with careful interviews, of the unconscionable knock-on effects from the 7/7 bombings in London. I say re-creation, but it wasn't what you might have expected on a bad day for the Beeb. There were no whizzy graphics, no tricksy camera-angles, no screeching rails or slo-mo acted angst, no gore. Just a few quiet interspersed shots of an empty tunnel and, »

New Trailer, Stills, and Website for Steve Stone's Entity

6 July 2012 12:18 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Upon watching the first five seconds of the trailer for Steve Stone's Entity, you'll probably think, "Please, not another cookie-cutter found-footage horror film." However, by the time it finishes, you may find yourself writing your local film festival and demanding they schedule this little nightmare.

Entity was recently completed and is currently being submitted to festivals. Judging by the sleek trailer, writer/director Stone seems to have captured some real frights with this UK thriller. Check out the stills and trailer below and see if you don't agree.

Entity stars Dervla Kirwan, Charlotte Riley, Branko Tomovic, Oliver Jackson, Rupert Hill and David Worden.

Synopsis:

1998: Thirty-four unidentified bodies were found in shallow graves in a remote Siberian forest. Despite subsequent police investigations, no official explanation was ever offered by the Russian authorities for these deaths. The case was closed three years later.

TV review: Blackout; Jamie's Summer Food Rave Up

2 July 2012 4:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

He's a corrupt drunkard who may have murdered someone. Just the man for mayor, then

'You're scaring me with that look," said Christopher Eccleston's son in Blackout (BBC1). You'd have thought the boy would have got used to it by now. Christopher Eccleston only has one look: pinched, so woundedly feral he makes Robert De Niro look house-trained, so intense that he could face down anybody, perhaps even God.

To his immense credit, Eccleston works that one look without trying another.

The results of doing otherwise can be catastrophic. Take the case of Roy Keane. There was a moment during Euro 2012 when Adrian Chiles made a half-time joke and Chiles, Gareth Southgate and Patrice Evra chuckled amiably. Then something happened. Roy Keane tried to smile. Small children and horses the world over are still in blankets being comforted by the emergency services or trying to get closure through grief counselling over that one. »

Christopher Eccleston: from superheroes to Sophocles

28 June 2012 2:25 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

For Christopher Eccleston, small is always beautiful, whether it be TV thriller Blackout or Greek tragedy Antigone on the stage. He reveals why making films just doesn't compare

He strides across the polished tiled floor, past imposing columns and heavy, intricately carved doors. Outside, the Manchester winds are furiously buffeting the redbrick walls of this grand, turn-of-the-last-century university hall. There seems nowhere more appropriate to meet Christopher Eccleston: he has a face to fit buildings like this, an on-screen intensity that is the match of the architecture. But even so, his latest TV role looks set to stretch him: an unflinching, uncomfortable, three-hour examination of addiction and corruption, in which Eccleston goes from rock bottom to hero, as Manchester politician Daniel Demoys.

Written by Bill Gallagher, who adapted Lark Rise to Candleford for the small screen, Blackout puts alcoholism under the microscope in the course of its three episodes. »
