‘Blair Witch’ review [Tiff ’16]

11 September 2016 10:13 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Blair Witch review: 17 years after the debut of the ground-breaking original, Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett attempt to re-ignite the franchise.

Blair Witch review by Paul Heath, Toronto International Film Festival 2016.

Up until just a couple of months ago, Blair Witch looked like it would be just another woods-set horror movie – even though it boasted the supreme talents of director Adam Wingard and writer Simon Barrett – the guys who brought us You’re Next and The Guest. Then the San Diego Comic-Con happened and Lionsgate dropped the bombshell in re-titling the film, calling it the aforementioned Blair Witch. A synopsis followed, and rather than the film being a remake of the 1999 classic, it would actually be a second sequel set nearly twenty years after the ground-breaking original. The Internet went wild.

The film is set in the present day, two decades since Heather Donahue, Joshua Leonard and Michael C. Williams »

‘Doomed!’ Exclusive Clip: New Documentary Explores Roger Corman’s Ill-Fated ‘Fantastic Four’ Movie

11 August 2016 1:26 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Last year, 20th Century Fox released a “Fantastic Four” reboot directed by Josh Trank. Starring Miles Teller (“Whiplash”), Michael B. Jordan (“Creed”), Kate Mara (“The Martian”), Jamie Bell (“Snowpiercer”), the film was a critical and commercial disaster. The reboot tried to jumpstart the franchise after the original 2005 series underperformed with its 2007 sequel. But in 1994, Bernd Eichinger of Constantin Film and director Roger Corman teamed up to make their own “Fantastic Four” film that never saw the light of day.

[Locarno Review] The Girl with All the Gifts

3 August 2016 2:30 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Long past the days of the booming Hammer Horror industry, the contemporary British genre cinema, while still able to churn out the occasional 28 Days Later or Attack the Block-esque international breakthrough, seems to more often revel in the niche (a.k.a. openly juvenile), if not particularly original, ’80s throwbacks of, say, a Neil Marshall. In other words: it doesn’t often look to the future as much as it seems stuck in the past.

With the pedigree of a starry cast and acclaimed literary source material, it’s not unfair to read into The Girl with All the Gifts as the hope for the nation’s next great intellectual (read: allegorical) horror film. Yet without the narrative or formal conviction to pull off the clichés rampant throughout, it sadly seems stuck between two worlds.

Beginning in the depressingly familiar sight of an underground military bunker, expectations rise with »

29 June 2016 3:02 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Streaming giant Netflix has handed out a ten-episode series order for "Lost In Space," the reimagined contemporary reboot of Irwin Allen's classic 1960s sci-fi series from Legendary Television.

Stranded light years from their intended destination, they find themselves battling a strange new alien environment and also their own personal demons. Equal parts family drama and sci-fi adventure, Netflix dubs the new series "a survival story for the ages."

"The Descent" and "Game of Thrones" helmer Neil Marshall is set to direct multiple episodes of the series with a worldwide premiere in 2018 planned.

'Game of Thrones': Inside Four of the Biggest Battles

"Blackwater." "The Watchers on the Wall." "Hardhome." "The Battle of the Bastards." It's rare enough for characters on a TV show to become household names, but on Game of Thrones, all it takes is a major battle for an episode title to lodge into pop-culture consciousness – like a sword plunged through steel armor.

So far, HBO's smash-hit series has served up a quartet of colossal clashes: the episode-spanning fights for King's Landing and Castle Black that served as climaxes for Seasons Two and Four, and the shorter but no less »
