7 creepiest horror movie kids: The Exorcist, The Sixth Sense

5 November 2014 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Aussie horror The Babadook, which is currently in UK cinemas and reaches the Us next week, is one of the scariest films of the year. Like a lot of the best fear-flicks, much of its ability to terrify comes down to one truly creepy kid.

In director Jennifer Kent's harrowing debut, six-year-old Samuel (Noah Wiseman) discovers a book called Mister Babadook, which just so happens to coincide with creepy occurrences at home that his mother (Essie Davis) blames on Samuel's overactive imagination. If we reveal any more, we'll ruin the film's surprises, but suffice to say that Samuel's behaviour is every bit as unnerving as the monster that could be lurking in his house.

He's not the only movie kid putting us off parenthood for life. Also responsible for giving Digital Spy a severe case of paedophobia (or fear of children) are these terrifying tots...

How Much Blood Would Fill the Elevator Hallway in The Overlook Hotel?

10 October 2014 8:15 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Each year in October, I find myself revisiting the Stanley Kubrick classic The Shining, which has surpassed broad criticism from Stephen King throughout the 1980s to eventually become a heralded classic of horror cinema. Last year, I was inspired to re-watch the movie after seeing the sometimes nutty but always thought-provoking Room 237, which offers various theories about the hidden messages in the original film – including everything from Native American genocide to Kubrick confessing to faking the moon landing. One part of the film that was examined is that iconic blood elevator sequence, first seen by Danny Torrence (Danny Lloyd) in a psychic vision. A lot of discussion has surrounded this image, including the symbolic meaning of the blood as well as how the effect was achieved. With the twisted mind I have, my thoughts went somewhere else: How much blood would it actually take to fill the elevator lobby? The »

Extended Version of The Shining Takes an Axe to UK's Film4 FrightFest

18 August 2014 2:08 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

When The Shining originally hit theaters back in 1980, it ran two minutes longer than the version we're all familiar with, including a hospital scene that Kubrick cut out a week into the film's theatrical run. Now that scene is being put back into the film for a special screening...

...which is, needless to say, a must-attend for all of you UK fans. Read on!

This year's Film4 FrightFest kicks off in London on August 21st, and we've just learned that the extended cut of The Shining will screen on Sunday night, August 24th. The 146-minute version includes a scene at the end of Wendy Torrance in a hospital bed, being told by Mr. Ullman that Jack's body couldn't be found. The screening will mark the first time the deleted scene has been publicly shown since the movie's original theatrical release.

It's interesting to note that Kubrick's horror masterpiece was heavily »

'The Shining' Prequel 'The Overlook Hotel' Brings on Director Mark Romanek

18 July 2014 1:08 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Mark Romanek has entered negotiations to direct The Shining prequel The Overlook Hotel for Warner Bros. We reported in May that Gravity director Alfonso Cuar&#243n was the studio's top choice to direct The Overlook Hotel, but it seems a deal was never reached.

The Overlook Hotel is based on the original prologue that Stephen King wrote for The Shining novel, which was cut before the book was published in 1977. The prologue tells the origin story of The Overlook Hotel and its first owner, Bob T. Watson, a "robber baron" at the start of the 20th Century who set out to build the greatest resort in America, nestled within the Colorado Rockies, where he and his family also lived.

We reported in April that Glen Mazzara, a former showrunner on AMC's The Walking Dead, signed on to write the screenplay. The writer recently turned in his first draft to producers Brad Fischer, »

Mark Romanek Tapped to Direct 'Shining' Prequel, 'Overlook Hotel'

18 July 2014 10:32 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Mark Romanek is set to direct Overlook Hotel, a prequel to Stanley Kubrick's The Shining which will tell the origin story of the Overlook Hotel through the eyes of its first owner, Bob T. Watson. A robber baron at the turn of the 20th century, Watson scaled the remote peaks of the Colorado Rockies to build the grandest resort in America, and a place he and his family would also call home. amz asin="B00A6CCF0K" size="small"The Shining was obviously based on the novel by Stephen King, which starred Jack Nicholson as Jack Torrance, caretaker of the Overlook Hotel for the winter. His son, Danny (Danny Lloyd) had psychic powers and when brought together with the evil and spiritual presence at the hotel Jack turned to violence while Danny continued to see horrific forebodings from the past and future of the hotel. King has since written a sequel, »

'The Shining' Prequel Eyes 'Gravity' Director Alfonso Cuaron

22 May 2014 8:48 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Gravity director Alfonso Cuar&#243n continues to be in high demand at Warner Bros. Just days after he entered talks to direct the Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the filmmaker has emerged as the studio's top choice to make The Shining prequel The Overlook Hotel.

Schmoes Know reports that the "ball is in Alfonso's court" for the project, but it isn't yet known if he plans on accepting their offer.

Back in April 2013, we reported that Glen Mazzara, the former showrunner of AMC's The Walking Dead, will be writing the script, which is set years before Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson) moved into the hotel in The Shining. Schmoes Know reports that a script has just been turned in, although it isn't known how well-received it was by the studio. Laeta Kalogridis, James Vanderbilt and Brad Fisher are set to produce.

No production schedule has been set for The Overlook Hotel, »

Shirley Temple v Justin Bieber? It's just not a fair comparison | Emma Brockes

12 February 2014 8:09 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Constant media hounding has ended The Good Ship Lollipop version of child stars. I love Temple, but it's a different world now

The time honored question "who had it harder?" can be applied to almost any scenario: oldest child or youngest? The leaver or the left behind? Generation X or Millennials? And this week, needs must, Justin Bieber or Shirley Temple?

Much of the coverage of Temple's death in the last few days has focused on her decision to retire from acting at the age of 22 and become something else, avoiding the fate of the child star in adulthood, of which there are several raging examples currently at large.

The comparisons are a little unfair. Arguably, the pressures on stars were lighter in the 1930s, when the studio system protected its assets with Stalinist zeal – protection in this case meaning exploiting them so thoroughly, there was nothing left for outside »

Strange Interpretation: Why ‘The Shining’ is Subliminal Genius, Not Cryptic Confession

26 January 2014 4:51 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

There is no other filmmaker who has attracted as much wild speculation and feverish discussion as the late, great Stanley Kubrick. Iconic, unique, celebrated, and the subject of wholesale apocryphal revisionism, the man credited with creating a masterpiece in every major genre is revered no longer so much as a director but as the posthumous leader of a movement. Kubrick is a cult. It speaks volumes of his enigmatic ventures that despite being the creator of the marvelously nebulous 2001, the film in his curriculum vitae which has left the most searing mark and the most varying schools of interpretation is his treatment of a Stephen King horror story. Films have been made, thousands of hours have been spent pouring over every detail, and lives have been changed by the pursuit of a holy grail within his subtext. Even today, 34 years after its release, The Shining debate rages on.

It’s not hard to see why. »

The Top 10 One-Hit-Film Wonders

2 January 2014 10:50 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Every once in a while, an actor will come on the scene with impact, impressing everyone with a powerhouse debut performance. But sometimes a great freshmen performance fails to lead to a good follow up, and the person who made the impressive debut starts to fade from the scene. It’s always sad when such potential is unmet. Here are 10 actors who started with a bang but faded with a whimper.

Heather Donahue (The Blair Witch Project-1999) She came on the scene in a big way, starring in the low-budget hit film that became such a sensation and started the ‘hand-held-camera’ style of film making (Used in Paranormal Activity, Cloverfield and others). She seemed poised to be the new Jamie Lee Curtis, the horror film “it girl”. She got a lot of offers to do other horror films but turned them down, in order to prevent type casting. Since then, »
