It’s a great day for DVD/Bluray when it comes to horror (and another genre or two), and with Fright At Home, we like to highlight some of the titles that for one reason or another, we feel that we would like to give you fright fanatics a heads’ up on. This week sees multiple releases from Scream Factory, Lionsgate and Cinedigm, as well as others, but we’ve singled out some highlights to shine the proverbial flashlight on. Read on!
Easily the standout release of the week, as far as I’m concerned, Scream Factory’s Blacula/Scream Blacula Scream double feature Bluray debut is a one-two punch of two of the coolest vampire movies around. Somewhat light on the supplemental end, but definitely worth picking up, you won’t find a vampire who takes less crap from his »

Following the first photos that emerged earlier this week, new images from the True Detective Season 2 set in Los Angeles offer another look at Taylor Kitsch as he engages a gunfight alongside Colin Farrell. We also have more images of Rachel McAdams. Though, the one star we haven't seen yet is Vince Vaughn. Thankfully, the actor recently spoke with Playboy, where he offered some insight into this season. The actor reveals that he was initially cast as career criminal Frank Semyon when he approached True Detective series creator Nic Pizzolatto about writing The Rockford Files movie that the actor was developing.
"I was developing a movie version of The Rockford Files and met with Nic about writing it. He was really enthusiastic but was already working on a crime drama set in Los Angeles, and he gracefully said it was best for him to focus on True Detective. Then he »
With set-photos appearing online on a regular basis over the last few weeks, anticipation is building for the return of True Detective for its second season, which features a brand-new cast and new directors taking over from Matthew McConaughey, Woody Harrelson and company.
The cast for season two surprised many, but on many levels on adds to the anticipation and desire to see where creator Nic Pizzolatto takes the series next. Colin Farrell (Phone Booth), Rachel McAdams (A Most Wanted Man), Taylor Kitsch (Savages) and Kelly Reilly (Flight) are the major players for the new go-around, but the most left-field casting choice was that of Vince Vaughn as a California crime-lord in danger of losing his empire. Many were perplexed, others were intrigued, but what is true is that the material on offer here is so strong that the role could change Vaughn’s career from here on out.

Now that “True Detective” has set its cast for season two (Vince Vaughn, Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, Taylor Kitsch and Kelly Reilly), the stars are finally starting to open up about the show’s hotly anticipated return.
In an interview with Playboy, Vaughn admits that he’s not feeling particularly pressured by the prospect of following Woody Harrelson’s and Matthew McConaughey’s acclaimed performances. “[Creator] Nic Pizzolatto is such a great writer, and so much of this is driven by his stories,” Vaughn says. “I thought Woody and Matthew did an exceptional job with the first season. This one’s very different, though. It’s a totally different story, with its own characters. The thing that’s consistent is the richness of the characters and the quality of the material.”
The season’s new setting has a lot to do with the difference in tone, according to Vaughn. “That was Louisiana. »

Arguably TV’s finest new original show of 2014, True Detective has gained many admirers since its critically-acclaimed debut last year. Now, after months of rumours and casting back-and-forth, the second season of the HBO show is in full production in Los Angeles, and some set photos have emerged over at ComingSoon.net showing some of the new cast in action. In the images, we can see stars Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch in action on the streets of California, in what looks to be a shootout scene…
Farrell (Phone Booth) plays Ray Velcoro, a compromised detective whose allegiances are torn between his masters in a corrupt police department and the mobster who owns him; McAdams (A Most Wanted Man) plays Ani Bezzerides, a Ventura County Sheriff’s detective whose uncompromising ethics put her at odds with others and the system she serves; while Kitsch (The Savages) plays Paul Woodrugh, »

The 2014 RopeofSilicon Movie Awards It's hard to believe I've been doing my own brand of "awards" for seven years now. Perhaps because film awards seem to have grown increasingly irrelevant, but when you watch as many movies as I do per year it is nice to sit back and remember the finer moments of the past year, especially when we're stuck in the doldrums of the early year releases, dealing with the likes of Jupiter Ascending, Taken 3, Blackhat and Seventh Son. So, as we are now only a few weeks away from the 87th Annual Academy Awards, it's time to hand out the 2014 RopeofSilicon Movie Awards, looking back on a year that turned out to be much better than it initially appeared it may be. A hard question I'm trying to answer is just what kind of year in movies was 2014c Like previous years, blockbusters came and went. »

The proverbial Top Ten List. A sacred tradition passed down by our cinematic elders. This is the fourth time I have partaken in this holy tradition, and one thing has remained constant is that this list is never set in stone. As we catch up with more films we missed or rewatch our favorites it causes us to like a movie more or less causing this list to change. In fact in 2012 and 2013 I ended up seeing my number one film of the year after I wrote up my Top 10. So the question becomes, “Why Do it?”. Well, for one it’s fun. At least I find it an enjoyable exercise as I try to break down the year that was. I watched 163 movies that were released in 2014. Narrowing that 163 down to a Top 10 is a challenge I enjoy.
Looking at 2014 as a whole it is evident it was a pretty good year. »
