Fresh off of work on portmanteau project Tales Of Halloween, Neil Marshall has set up a new solo effort. He’ll direct The Sentence, which is being described as a futuristic revenge thriller.The concept, which emerged back when Luc Besson’s EuropaCorp agreed to finance the film, is being pitched as a blend of Death Wish and The Purge. Olympus Has Fallen writers Creighton Rothenberger and Katrina Benedikt have cranked out a script set in a world where an eye for an eye is the law and the family of someone killed has 24 hours to take revenge. In the movie’s case, the story starts when a father kills a criminal to protect his son during a home invasion, only to be confronted by the man’s dangerous comrades when they take their chance for legal retribution. It sounds like something Marshall can excel at, harking back to the siege mentality of Dog Soldiers. »

“There is no name for what this man is.”
Well, here’s a horse of a different color. Hannibal has jumped ahead three years, upending its status quo even as it calls back repeatedly to its pilot. Jack recruits Will to rejoin the FBI, Will visits Hannibal seeking an expert consultant, and Will visits a blood-spattered house and slips into the murderer’s mind. The game’s the same, but the players have changed. And what a difference it makes. Will, brittle and twitchy as ever, has found peace and family with Molly and her 11-year-old son. Hannibal, stripped of dignity and freedom as a result of his ploy to remain close to Will, is bumping up against the limits of his memory palace while a bitter Alana chafes at Chilton’s company at the Baltimore Hospital for the Criminally Insane.

The first half of Hannibal season three has drawn criticism from some (though not this critic) for its artistic, avant-garde approach to exploring the psychology and relationship between Hannibal Lecter and Will Graham. With “The Great Red Dragon”, the series opens a new chapter, returning to its stylistic roots and introducing a new key figure: Francis Dolarhyde. Fans of Thomas Harris’ work have been eagerly anticipating Dolarhyde’s debut and the start of the show’s Red Dragon arc/adaptation, and after this episode, it’s easy to see why. Being unfamiliar with Hannibal’s source material, this critic can’t speak to the faithfulness of showrunner Bryan Fuller and co.’s take on the character, but the glimpses shown here are certainly compelling. »

As a classical musician, I can’t help but be influenced in my interpretation of Hannibal by its amazing score and soundtrack, composed and compiled by music supervisor Brian Reitzell. This is not intended to be a definitive reading of Reitzell or showrunner Bryan Fuller’s intentions in regards to the music, but rather an exploration of how these choices affect my appreciation of the given episode. Read my review of “The Great Red Dragon” here.
Classical pieces featured:
This famous movement from Mozart’s solo motet, beautifully performed here by boy soprano Aiden Glenn (the piece was originally composed for a castrato), is a fitting choice to represent how Hannibal elects to experience his arrest and incarceration at the Baltimore State Hospital for the Criminally Insane. »

"To say that I am overjoyed, excited and eager to attend FrightFest as a guest is putting it mildly. This festival has been on my radar for some time and to be included and have four films screening is a welcome nightmare from which I hope never to wake," said Crampton, whose new films Sun Choke and Road Games will première at the festival.
Also on the guest list are Braveheart and Trainspotting star James Cosmo, The Descent director Neil Marshall and Eighties pop icon Toyah Willcox, who has recently revived her horror career.

Residents of Chicagoland, rejoice! (Also, tourists who can make plans to travel there). The program for the second annual Bruce Campbell Horror Film Festival presented by Wizard World has been announced, and it is filled with "vampires, psychotic breakdowns, cannibals, killer dogs, contagious diseases, mummies, bad decisions, and easily the most evil half man, half bunny rabbit of all time," according to festival director Josh Goldbloom. Of course, Goldbloom might not be the most objective source, but a quick look at the films programmed by The Awesome Fest is mighty impressive. Opening night will see the local debut of Tales of Halloween, an anthology film featuring shorts by the likes of Neil Marshall, Darren Lynn Bousman, and Lucky McKee, while the closing night highlight will...

Early this year a bunch of La horror filmmakers got together, spurred by Axelle Carolyn, to make a horror anthology revolving specifically around Halloween. The result is Tales of Halloween, featuring shorts by Carolyn, Neil Marshall, Darren Lynn Bousman, Lucky McKee, and many more, not to mention a whole variety of monsters, deaths, practical effects, and […]

Looking for news, casting, rumours and more about the next season of HBO's Game Of Thrones? Then you've come to the right place...
This is news we were all expecting, but welcome nonetheless. After a season's absence, Isaac Hempstead-Wright, aka Bran Stark, will be returning in Game Of Thrones season 6. Presumably, that means catching up with Hodor and Meera, too.
The last we saw the second-to-youngest Stark boy, he had finally completed his quest to meet the Three-Eyed Raven and was about to begin another, a training journey with the Children of the Forest which would teach him more about his Warg powers.
Here's what Hempstead-Wright told The Irish Examiner about Bran's return to the show:
“I can’t say a lot but I am back this season, and it’s going to get particularly interesting with Bran. He has some interesting visions."

Feature-length horror movie anthologies are pretty hit and miss, but there are a few that have been well-received including "Creepshow," "Tales from the Crypt," "Trilogy of Terror," "V/H/S," "Trick 'r Treat" and 1945's "Dead of Night." The latest entry in the sub-genre is "Tales of Halloween," which features segments directed by such horror luminaries as Lucky McKee ("May"), Neil Marshall ("The Descent") and Darren Lynn Bousman (the "Saw" franchise) and featuring appearances by fright flick icons like Lin Shaye, John Landis, Joe Dante, Adrienne Barbeau and -- my all-time favorite -- "Twilight's" BooBoo Stewart. So will it be worth a watch? Check out the Comic Con-debuted trailer below and decide for yourself. Given the sheer number of directors involved, expect it to be all over the map. »

Man-eating pumpkins, buckets of blood, flesh-eating zombies and Satan himself make the trailer for Tales of Halloween absolutely bonkers.
The upcoming anthology film gathers 11 cutting-edge horror directors – including Game of Thrones' Neil Marshall and Saw III's Darren Lynn Bousman – to create vignettes that celebrate the horror of Halloween.
Tales of Halloween takes place in one small American town terrorized by ghosts, demons and aliens all in the same night.
Tales of Halloween arrives just in time for the spooky season on October 16. »
It may only be July, but it can take a while to get in just the right mood for certain annual festivities. So, thank goodness for the early arrival of a trailer for Tales Of Halloween – an anthology horror movie featuring ten different segments, directed by eleven different directors.
“Ten stories are woven together by their shared theme of Halloween night in an American suburb, where ghouls, imps, aliens and axe murderers appear for one night only, to terrorise unsuspecting residents.”
In many respects, an advantage of a horror anthology is the fact that it allows for many filmmakers to showcase their work, giving the whole project a fascinating blend of flavours. However, what is notable about Tales Of Halloween, is that – despite – featuring the work of very individual directors, there is an overall tone that snakes through each one, making it feel very much like part of a larger whole. »
