Looking back at the Amityville Horror franchise

30 September 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Sarah looks back at the Amityville films, and finds a lot of scary things, not all of which were intentional…

112 Ocean Avenue, Long Island is probably the most famous haunted house in the world. Not that you’ll necessarily recognise the address – it’s far better known as the Amityville Horror house. Back in 1975, George and Kathy Lutz moved their family into the house… and then 28 days later, they moved back out, claiming to have been driven out by supernatural forces. Their story made the news, was turned into a book, and then made into a movie, in 1979.

It’s hard to imagine now that a family claiming to have encountered the devil in their basement could cause such a massive fuss, but I’m not here to interrogate the truth of their statement. What I am here to do, though, is to watch all of the Amityville Horror movies made to date, »

Robert Redford to Executive Produce 'Brubaker' TV Show with 'Homeland' Producer Alex Cary

8 June 2014 1:42 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

After working on docu-series at CNN this year, Robert Redford is moving to scripted television with "Homeland" producer Alex Cary. At Sunday's Produced By conference held by the PGA, Cary told the crowd he was working on a TV adaptation of "Brubaker," Redford's 1980 film, with the iconic actor and filmmaker.  The original film told the story of a new warden who pretends to be a convict in order to expose corruption at his prison. Directed by Stuart Rosenberg, "Brubaker" starred Redford and Morgan Freeman, earning an Oscar nod for screenwriters W.D. Richter and Arthur A. Ross.  Redford has executive-produced many documentaries, including the 2014 CNN series "Chicagoland" and "Death Row Stories," but "Brubaker" would mark his first scripted series. It also marks yet another movie adaptation for television, following the success stories of "Fargo," "About a Boy," "Hannibal," "Parenthood," "Friday Night Lights," and many others. The trend is growing and the power players of film. »

Movie Poster of the Week: Lesser-Known Oscar Nominees of the 60s and 70s

1 March 2014 10:59 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

The poster for Voyage of the Damned makes a bold claim, and maybe those who saw Stuart Rosenberg’s star-studded blockbuster in 1976 have remembered it ever since. Until a couple of weeks ago, however, when I saw it in a list of past Oscar nominees, I had never heard of it, and I don’t think it would be unfair to say that it is a film that has not stood the test of time.

Voyage of the Damned, which chronicles the tragic failed escape of 937 Jewish refugees from Nazi Germany, was nominated for three Oscars (for Best Score, Best Adapted Screenplay, and for Lee Grant for Best Supporting Actress, the lone acting nominee among a boatload of international heavyweights).

Oscar nominations, especially for acting, tend to confer a certain amount of immortality on their recipients (you are forever “Academy Award nominee Lee Grant”) and there are many films and »
