Don’t Knock Twice review by Kat Hughes, March 2017.

Don’t Knock Twice Review

The broken mother has become somewhat of a theme within modern horror films. The Babadook, Mama, Lights Out, and Under the Shadow have all tackled the subject and now Don’t Knock Twice joins the ranks.

Jess (Katee Sackhoff) is a semi-famous sculptor trying to reconnect with her daughter. Now on the road to recovery following her hedonistic time on drugs, she is desperate to reclaim her teenage daughter Chloe (Lucy Boynton). Chloe however, isn’t so keen on the reconciliation as, thanks to her mother’s drug dependency, she has spent the last seven or so years living in a children’s home. Her feelings soon change after she and her boyfriend »

Castlevania Showrunner Adi Shankar Is Working On An R-Rated Power Rangers Animated Series

10 February 2017 2:26 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Two years ago, director Joseph Khan and producer Adi Shankar presented Power/Rangers, a short fan film based on Saban's colorful heroes of the same name. The film, which starred Katee Sackhoff and James Van Der Beek, was an R-rated take on the kid-friendly Power Rangers mythos, with plenty of violent action and mature themes. Saban wasn't exactly thrilled with the film, as they were working on their own reboot that is now due for release in a few months. Shankar initially said the film was meant as a standalone, mature analysis of the Power Rangers concept, but it seems that he now has something a little more ambitious in mind. In an interview with Polygon, Shankar confirmed that he is working on an R-rated Power Rangers animated series that would adapt the first three seasons of the original TV show. “It’s a complete retelling of the first three seasons, »

R.I.P. Richard Hatch (1945 – 2017)

8 February 2017 7:23 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It was sadly announced yesterday that Battlestar Galactica actor Richard Hatch passed away after a battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 71 years old.

Hatch began his career on the soap opera All My Children and later joined on The Streets of San Francisco after Michael Douglas left the show. His biggest role, however, came in 1978 as ace pilot Apollo in Battlestar Galactica. The series was about the exodus of humanity after the Cylons, a race of robots, attacked humanity to near extinction, leading them to find the mythical planet Earth for refuge. It only ran for one season, but gained a large cult following after an edited cut of the pilot hit theaters and even spawned the short-lived sequel series Galactica 1980.

Unlike most actors attached to an iconic role, Hatch never got tired of being Apollo or the Galactica fandom. Throughout his career he wrote books based in the »

Katee Sackhoff Returns to Space in Origin Unknown

Michael Ahr Feb 8, 2017

Katee Sackhoff returns to space following Battlestar Galactica, with Origin Unknown...

There are certain actors from the reboot of Battlestar Galactica that will always carry the legacy of the classic science fiction show from the start of the millennium. Tricia Helfer will always be Six; James Callis will always be Baltar; and Katee Sackhoff will always be Starbuck. But after her stint on Longmire and her roles in Riddick, Oculus, and Don’t Knock Twice, Sackhoff has continued to build up a varied body of word. And now she's heading back to space, in the drama Origin Unknown.

'Don't Knock Twice': Film Review

5 February 2017 8:24 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

There’s nothing better than a vengeful witch to help repair the frayed emotional bonds between a mother and a daughter. That seems to be the message of Caradog James’ horror pic which offers sadly derivative scares but also a surprisingly affecting family drama. If it had skipped the clichéd supernatural elements to instead concentrate on the relationship between the two central characters, Don’t Knock Twice might have emerged as an interesting film.

That the two women are portrayed by Katee Sackhoff and up-and-comer Lucy Boynton (Sing Street) is another plus. The former plays Jess, a recovering addict who was forced »

Press Gang's most mind-blowing episodes

5 February 2017 3:35 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Robin Bell Feb 6, 2017

A salute to some of the brilliant and hard-hitting episodes in Steven Moffat's first TV series, the evergreen Press Gang...

Before River Song, Trenzalore and his take on The Doctor, before Sherlock fell off a building and provided multiple explanations, before James Nesbitt flipped out in a zoo in Jekyll, before Coupling, Joking Apart and Chalk, maybe even before he was known as The Moff, before all that came the quite brilliant Press Gang. Steven Moffat's first TV series, which he wrote all 42 episodes of, was based on an idea by his father, Bill Moffat. At its centre it had a brilliant will they/won't they relationship, and the epitome of a strong female character in Lynda Day. After 5 series it ended, but left behind so many quality episodes, which in trying to choose the stand out mind-blowers has been nigh on impossible. But for jolting, »

Interview: Katee Sackhoff Discusses Don’T Knock Twice, Riddick & Rescuing Baby Hedgehogs

3 February 2017 4:16 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Katee Sackhoff is known for playing kick-ass characters who can take on even the most menacing mercenary, but her character in Don’t Knock Twice faces a different kind of threat: herself. Wrestling with personal demons, Sackhoff’s Jess shows how powerful love can be when a witch threatens to tear her daughter away forever. With Don’t Knock Twice out today in theaters and on VOD and HD Digital from IFC Midnight, Daily Dead spoke with Sackhoff about bringing out Jess’ vulnerability and strengths, rescuing baby hedgehogs near the set, and how she’d love to reprise her role as Dahl in another Riddick movie (even if she had to win a dance-off to make it happen).

Thank you for taking the time to talk about Don’t Knock Twice. What was it about the role of Jess that struck you and interested you in this story?

Rings review

3 February 2017 7:34 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The cursed videotape returns in the belated horror sequel, Rings. Here's our review of a bewitchingly terrible film...

Jean-Luc Godard once said something to the effect that a story needs a beginning, middle and an end, but not necessarily in that order. Rings doesn't really have much of a story, but it does have three beginnings, so it must be really, really good. Right?

See related  Katee Sackhoff interview: Battlestar, Haunting, Statham

It's nearly 20 years since Sadako first started menacing screens of varying sizes in the original Ring, Hideo Nakata's collision of traditional Japanese ghost tale and modern urban culture. It was a film that kicked off a western interest in all things J-horror, spawned a series of Japanese prequels and sequels, and an inevitable American remake, directed by Gore Verbinski in 2002. The Ring then got a sequel in 2005, and now we have Rings - an attempt to rethink »
