‘The Blair Witch Project’ – seeing is believing, but hearing is much more persuasive

3 October 2014 10:21 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Blair Witch Project

Directed by Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sánchez

Written by Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sánchez

1989, USA

Three film students go out to Burkittsville, MD to make a documentary about the legend of the Blair Witch, who supposedly haunts the area. Heather (Heather Donahue) is the director, and accompanying her on the trip is cameraman Josh (Joshua Leonard) and Mike (Michael Williams) does the sound. As they go about asking the locals about the witch they get a tip about the cemetery up in the hills where the seven children who disappeared after outing Elly Kedward as a witch are supposedly buried.

Once on the trail Heather, Mike and Josh soon find the cemetery after a brief detour from Heather’s map and are ready to call it quits for the weekend after getting the footage.  With the supplies finished after only three days, food is short and tempers are short. »

Orion Pictures Returns for the First Time in 15 Years

12 September 2014 2:52 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this week, a trailer for the upcoming thriller The Town That Dreaded Sundown was released featuring a logo fans of 80s and 90s cinema haven't seen in 15 years. The Town That Dreaded Sundown marks the return of Orion Pictures, the distributor of classics such as The Terminator, Robocop and Best Picture winner Silence of the Lambs, for the first time since 1999's One Man's Hero.

Here is the trailer carrying the original Orion logo:

Orion Pictures declared bankruptcy in 1991, but it was bought by MGM in 1996. MGM resurrected the brand in 2013, which is currently used on the syndicated series Paternity Court. MGM is now planning on using the brand for smaller, independent titles for VOD and limited theatrical releases.

The Town That Dreaded Sundown is actually the second recent production to carry the Orion Pictures banner, following the Brazilian film Vestido Pra Casar. However, MGM hasn't announced any future »

The Town that Dreaded Sundown Terrorizes Texas in this Trailer

10 September 2014 5:12 PM, PDT | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

The Town that Dreaded Sundown is being remade or re-invisioned for 2014. Blumhouse Productions and MGM have completed production on a new film in the series, which takes place sixty-five years after the original. Both films deal with a crazed killer, who murders by moonlight. The update stars Addison Timlin (Derailed), Gary Cole (Office Space), Spencer Treat Clark, Joshua Leonard and Denis O'Hare. And now, a trailer for the latest film is hosted here, along with the film's movie poster. The story begins several years after the moonlit murders. Texarkana, Texas is again plagued with a masked killer, who preys on young women. Nearby, a lonely high school girl knows more about this killer, than she is letting on. The trailer shows the killer behind a potato sack? Meanwhile, kids are stalked in backwoods and in behind the town. The clip shows a few chases sequences as the killer lays waste to this rural locale. »

First Trailer & Poster for The Town That Dreaded Sundown

10 September 2014 12:38 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

“Before that summer, everybody would leave their doors unlocked. And after the summer, you saw a stranger, you’d run the other way. And now… he’s back.” The Phantom Killer changed the way of life in a small Texas town 66 years ago with a string of Moonlight Murders, and a modern-day copycat killer has emerged in the trailer for Blumhouse’s meta-horror remake of The Town That Dreaded Sundown.

The Town That Dreaded Sundown will play at the BFI London Film Festival, Fantastic Fest, and Beyond Fest before coming out on October 16th. We have the film’s first official trailer and poster below: (a big thanks to Shock Till You Drop for the poster image!)

“Set in a world in which the original film exists and is very much part of popular consciousness, this update sees the quiet streets of Texerkana plagued by a maniac who bears striking »

Watch: First Trailer For Horror Remake 'The Town That Dreaded Sundown' Premiering At Fantastic Fest

10 September 2014 10:58 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It has been a long time since we've seen the Orion Pictures logo—maybe that says something about our age—but it's the first thing you'll notice in the new trailer for "The Town That Dreaded Sundown." A remake of the cult 1976 movie directed by Charles B. Pierce, this new promo reveals that the do-over has been given a contemporary polish.  Starring Addison Timlin, Gary Cole, Joshua Leonard and more, the story kicks off 65 years after the events of the first movie, with another moonlight killer behind a series of grisly slayings. Is the original murderer still at it, is this a copycat or is it something a bit more complicated than all that? Well, you'll just have to wait and see what director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon ("American Horror Story") and writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (the "Carrie" remake) have cooked up. "The Town That Dreaded Sundown," arrives on October 16 and will make »

New Images From The Town That Dreaded Sundown

4 September 2014 6:49 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Jason Blum’s Blumhouse Productions has been ridiculously busy of late, so much so that it’s almost impossible to keep track of all its upcoming projects. And you’ll be forgiven if Blumhouse’s take on The Town that Dreaded Sundown slipped through the cracks for you – the horror redo has been flying very much under the radar. That’s changing today, however, with the unveiling of two official images from the flick.

Alfonso Gomez-Rejon (American Horror Story) makes his directorial debut on the movie, a “reinvention” of the 1976 independent horror cult film. The Town that Dreaded Sundown isn’t a remake in the traditional sense – it’s set in a world in which the original film exists and is on the minds of townspeople in Texarkana. This time around, a maniac who bears a striking resemblance to the figure from the 1976 film is slaughtering people on the town’s streets. »

First Photos from The Town That Dreaded Sundown

3 September 2014 9:35 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The folks living in a small Texas town thought the Phantom Killer behind the Moonlight Murders of 1946 was confined to the silver screen, via the 1976 film based on the real-life slayings, titled The Town That Dreaded Sundown. But a new copycat murderer has emerged in a meta-horror remake, and the film’s first photos show the new threat wearing a wardrobe similar to the original Phantom Killer.

The Town That Dreaded Sundown remake is making its world premiere at the BFI London Film Festival on October 14th. Here’s the film’s latest synopsis (via BFI London Film Festival):

“Set in a world in which the original film exists and is very much part of popular consciousness, this update sees the quiet streets of Texerkana plagued by a maniac who bears striking resemblance to the same Phantom Killer who wreaked havoc on the town decades before.

If I Stay movie review: you see me, you really see me

29 August 2014 12:14 PM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Honest, emotional teen melodrama with a great performance by Chloë Grace Moretz that serves as a beautiful metaphor for the choices that teen girls face. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

High school student and brilliant student cellist Mia Hall (Chloë Grace Moretz [Carrie, Kick-Ass 2], who is terrific, as always, here) is in a coma. Dying, even. She and her family have been in a horrific car crash, and now, as her body lies in a hospital bed, her spirit wanders the hospital, visiting her family when she can (she needs to wait for someone corporeal to open doors, as you do when you’re a ghost) and thinking back over her life, and whether it’s worth returning to.

If adapting more young-adult novels means getting more stories about teenaged girls onscreen, »

‘If I Stay’ is a win-win for both teenagers and adults

29 August 2014 9:54 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

If I Stay

Written for the screen by Shauna Cross

Directed by R.J. Cutler

USA, 2014

Based on the novel of the same name by Gayle Forman, If I Stay tells the story of Mia Hall (Chloë Grace Moretz). An overachiever, cello enthusiast, and overall good-egg of a daughter, Mia has paved a finite future for herself with Julliard on her horizon. When involved in a head on collision, killing her entire family and leaving her in a coma, she goes through an out-of-body experience and has to decide if she will stay with her rocker boyfriend (Jamie Blackley) and live with her grandparents, or depart with her family and leave everything she’s aspiring to behind. What seems like the same tiresome supernatural melodrama found in Ya franchises like Twilight, in actuality, holds up nicely for both the tween dragging their parent and the parent initially being dragged into the theater. »

If I Stay review: Chloë Grace Moretz can't decide to stay or go

29 August 2014 1:01 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Rj Cutler; Screenwriter: Shauna Cross; Starring: Chloë Grace Moretz, Mireille Enos, Jamie Blackley, Joshua Leonard, Stacy Keach, Liana Liberatro; Running time: 107 mins; Certificate: 12A

What would you choose: heaven, or heaven on earth? The big decision Mia Hall is faced with during an out-of-body experience is almost academic. Chloë Grace Moretz has an effortless look of anguish that makes this sluggish adaptation of Gayle Forman's best-selling novel a little more watchable than it deserves to be, but with a picture of teenage life seemingly plucked from the pages of Mizz, it really makes little difference whether Mia stays on this mortal coil, or goes.

Forman started out writing for teen magazines and that experience translates into a very glossy picture of youth. Apart from her model looks, Mia is a musical prodigy with achingly hip, easy-going parents (Mireille Enos of The Killing remake plays mum) and a devoted »

Ya Movie Parents Who Don't Suck

27 August 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

I unapologetically read a lot of young adult books -- for work (hey, they keep getting adapted into films), because it helps me recommend books to my own kids, and because I just want to, period. But something that bothers me as an adult reader and viewer of coming-of-age stories is how often the parents are absent, distant, abusive, missing, overbearing, plain evil, or, of course, dead from the very beginning.

I fully understand why those sorts of parents make the young protagonist more sympathetic or troubled or fragile, but it's a relief when the parents aren't the antagonists. That's why I was so impressed with the parents in "If I Stay," who like the mom and dad in "The Fault in Our Stars" are actually, you know, Doing Their Jobs as parents: loving their children unconditionally; giving their kids advice; providing their kids freedom to grow up but being »
