From Dusk Till Dawn The Series Blog: ‘Mistress’ Review [Spoilers]

19 April 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Written By: Robert Rodriguez, Juan Carlos Coto

Director: Eduardo Sanchez

Cast: D.J. Cotrona, Zane Holtz, Jesse Garcia, Jake Busey, Robert Patrick, Madison Davenport, Brandon Soo Hoo, Wilmer Valderrama, Adrianne Palicki

Synopsis: Richie’s visions take over as Seth gets them closer to the border. Freddie Gonzalez learns of ancient Mayan rituals and how the brothers could be linked.

Now we hit the third episode, and we slow the pace a little. We learn more about key characters and another is introduced but it all seems a little drawn out. I’m not sure whether it’s because it had completely deviated from the film and had all new material or because we’re waiting for them to get moving again.

This episode begins with Seth in prison and bare knuckle fighting. Now, we finally get to see that cool tribal tattoo that George Clooney sported in the film. We are »

The success of the first horror anthology brings an interesting array of directors from The Blair Witch's Eduardo Sanchez to Gareth 'The Raid' Evans to this compendium of scary vignettes. The framing story has two private investigators stumbling across a stack of VHS tapes while looking into the disappearance of a college student. While one checks out the vicinity, the other starts delving into the videos. »

1 April 2014 3:18 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

 

 

*As always, these From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series reviews will feature quite a few spoilers, so you’ve been warned*

As if the last two episodes weren’t enough to keep you on the edge of your seats, From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series begins to heat up even more with the Eduardo Sanchez (The Blair Witch Project, V/H/S/2)-helmed third episode, “Mistress“.  Introducing more characters, giving us even more backstories to the characters already established, and setting things up for one epic season ahead of us. Read on!

When the last episode, “Blood Runs Thick” left off, The Gecko brothers were looking for a place to lay low, until their middle man Carlos (who’s secretly a vampire) could arrange a meeting point, where the geckos would be safe, and rich. Richie had taken a hostage with them (Samantha Esteban, Harsh Times), shows us viewers (and »

Eduardo Sánchez Doesn’t Think Blair Witch 3 is a Bad Idea

27 March 2014 3:31 PM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Although I hate director Joe Berlinger’s 2000 train wreck “Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2″ with a weird and slightly misguided passion, I always wondered why the folks at Lionsgate never moved forward with a third installment of the horror franchise. It’s not like they don’t have any problems churning out horrid sequels, so why not dip back into that cinematic well for some extra cash? It’s kind of strange. Lionsgate scooped up the rights to “The Blair Witch Project” after purchasing Artisan Entertainment back in 2003. There’s definitely a market for a sequel — indie filmmakers are farting out found footage flicks left and right — so why not give people another proper “Blair Witch” movie? What’s up with that? Eduardo Sánchez, the co-director of the classic horror picture, recently sold his latest flick “Exits” to the boys and girls over at Lionsgate. This prompted the folks at Movies. »

Blair Witch Project 3 Still Being Considered, Won't Be Shot Like First Film

27 March 2014 4:13 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

After hitting it big with "Blair Witch Project," directors Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sanchez have had much success, which is likely why they've been working on getting a third installment off the ground. While promoting his latest film, "Exists," distributed by Lionsgate, Sanchez said that "Blair Witch Project 3" may still happen. "Lionsgate owns the property, so it's obviously up to them right now," he explained. "We've been talking to them for the past four or five years about doing it, but there's nothing really in the works right now with us. But I think maybe just being back at Lionsgate will help move things forward on another 'Blair Witch' movie." Sanchez went on to say that if "Blair Witch Project 3" does happen, don't expect it to look like the original film. "We never imagined doing another 'Blair Witch' found-footage movie," he revealed. "Our plan for the sequel is definitely not doing a found-footage movie. »

From Dusk till Dawn: The Series, Ep. 1.03, “Mistress”: Paradise

26 March 2014 1:35 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

From Dusk till Dawn: The Series, Season 1, Episode 3, “Mistress”

Written by Juan Carlos Coto

Directed By Eduardo Sanchez

Airs Tuesdays at 9pm (Et) on El Rey Network

“For people like you and Richard, heaven is not having to look over your shoulder”

The thing about grindhouse is you never really know what you’re going to get. Yes, these productions are never brilliant masterpieces but they are frequently fun and usually entertaining. They also work the best when they aren’t taking themselves too seriously. So far, From Dusk till Dawn: The Series has managed to be all of these things.

“Mistress”, the series’ third episode, does suffer from slow pacing but it does manage to further expand its mythology. It was clear from the first episode that the series was interested in creating a more complex backstory for the characters we knew so well from the film.  Only three »

Robert Rodriguez's El Rey Network Renews Its First Scripted Drama, 'From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series'

26 March 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Robert Rodriguez's cable channel El Rey Network has ordered a second season of Robert Rodriguez's television show "From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series." Was there ever any doubt? The ongoing "From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series" is the filmmaker's first TV project, and it's also the first scripted original to come from El Rey, which launched in December. This renewal comes early in the show's 13-episode first season run -- the third episode, directed by Eduardo Sánchez (of "The Blair Witch Project") and guest starring Adrianne Palicki (who acted alongside series lead D.J. Cotrona "G.I. Joe: Retaliation"), aired last night. Based on Rodriguez's 1996 film, which was written by and stars Quentin Tarantino, "From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series" has been streaming as a Netflix original outside of the U.S., a deal which will continue in the second season. In the series, Cotrona and Zane Holtz play criminal siblings Seth and Richie Gecko, »

Eduardo Sanchez Talks Found Footage and The Blair Witch Project 3

26 March 2014 | Horror Asylum | See recent Horror Asylum news »

Even though there were found footage features before it and one heck of a lot since 'The Blair Witch Project' will remain one of the most original horror movies to ever hit our screens. It has been 15 years since the release of the original from co-directors Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sanchez which was swiftly followed up the next year with off the wall meta-sequel 'Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2'. Of course a third installment has been rumoured ever since and during a recent Movies.com interview with Eduardo Sanchez, director of other horror projects such as 'Lovely Molly' and upcoming Bigfoot horror 'Exists', the filmmaker commented on the recent horde of found footage offerings and if we'll eventually see more from the Blair Witch!

Eduardo Sánchez on Directing 'From Dusk till Dawn,' 'The Intruders,' and What's Changed Since 'Blair Witch'

25 March 2014 6:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Yesterday we shared the first part of our interview with The Blair Witch Project cocreator Eduardo Sánchez, which focused mainly on that film's legacy and the sequel Lionsgate may or may not make. That's not all we talked about, though. Sánchez has moved into television territory for a bit. It started when he directed an episode of From Dusk till Dawn: The Series (which airs tonight at 9 p.m. Est on El Rey Network), and he's currently busy directing the first four episodes of a BBC drama called The Intruders, written by The X-Files and Final Destination scribe Glen Morgan. He gave us an update on both of those projects, as well his thoughts on why the movie business has changed in the years since Blair Witch, and why it's so much harder to find...

Eduardo Sanchez Teases Potential Blair Witch Project Sequel

25 March 2014 12:10 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Back in 1999 Eduardo Sanchez and Daniel Myrick introduced the world to The Blair Witch Project, one of the most influential horror films of all time. Though it was, of course, followed up with a sequel, the duo had nothing to do with it...

...and now it seems they're primed and ready to return to the woods. What's the holdup? Read on for details!

In an interview with Movies.com while promoting his upcoming Bigfoot flick Exists, Sanchez hinted that he's totally on board to revive the franchise, but the ball is at this point in Lionsgate's court.

"You know, Lionsgate owns the property so it's obviously up to them right now," said Sanchez. "We've been talking to them for the past four or five years about doing it, but there's nothing really in the works right now with us."

Exists represents the reunion of Sanchez and Lionsgate, and when asked »

'Blair Witch Project' Cocreator Eduardo Sánchez Gives Us an Update on the Film's Legacy and a Potential New Sequel

24 March 2014 6:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

The Blair Witch Project was such a phenomenon when it came out that no one really knew how to react to its success. Hollywood wasn't sure if it could replicate it, which is why you didn't see it get a new sequel every year. Not even cowriter/director Eduardo Sánchez had any real idea of what a post-Blair Witch career should look like for him. Sánchez stepped away from the industry for a few years, and as you can see from the below part of our interview with him, Blair Witch's success didn't necessarily make it easier for him within the studio system. So he opted to make more horror movies on his own using the money he made off of Blair Witch, and they're actually some of the better indie genre movies of the last decade. Altered, in...

Friday Night Lights alum Adrianne Palicki is back on the small screen this week in Robert Rodriguez’s From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series on the El Rey Network. She plays Vanessa Styles, a woman from Seth Gecko’s (D.J. Cotrona) past.

EW has an exclusive clip of  Palicki in the March 25 episode, titled “Mistress,” directed by Eduardo Sanchez (Blair Witch Project), in which she insinuates to Seth that his brother Richie (Zane Holtz), known for his violent, unpredictable behavior, may be suffering form mental illness, to which Seth sharply responds with a finger in her face, “He’s not crazy. »

‘Black Water Vampire’ Review

23 March 2014 9:52 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Danielle Lozeau, Bill Oberst Jr., Andrea Monier, Anthony Fanelli, Robin Steffen | Written and Directed by Evan Tramel

Raymond Banks has been locked up and certified criminally insane for the murders of four women whose bodies were brutalised and dumped in the woods, but Andrea Adams thinks the police have got it wrong and she’s taking her film crew to find out the truth. What they find there can only be told by the footage left behind. Who or what is responsible for a series of brutal killings, where the victims’ bodies have been found drained of blood in Black Water Creek?

Right you know the drill, let’s get the usual statement out of the way first. Black Water Vampire is – wait for it – a found footage flick. And as you know all too well by now, I hate (the majority of) found footage flicks… However, there are »

More Brands But Fewer Big Ideas at SXSW

19 March 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As more than 70,000 badge-holders converged in Austin for the 28th annual South by Southwest Festival, the sheer magnitude of films, startups and networking sessions should have produced the next great thing: a movie, social-media app or an undiscovered talent. But it didn’t.

Veronica Mars” director Rob Thomas told Variety that the film adaptation of the former CW TV network spy series, which premiered at the fest March 8, will most certainly reboot the character via other platforms, including books, but added that he wasn’t sure if Veronica would find herself on the bigscreen again. That may be a disappointment to the thousands of fans who made the pic possible via Kickstarter.

The media was abuzz over producer Dana Brunetti’s criticism of famous filmmakers — including Spike Lee, Zach Braff and Thomas — who use crowdfunding to finance their films.

SXSW Film Festival: Whatever Floats Your Bloat

17 March 2014 6:51 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Variety film critics Justin Chang and Andrew Barker circle back to discuss this year’s SXSW Film Festival, which recently wrapped in Austin.

Justin Chang: Well, Andrew, another SXSW has passed us by — although it’s not entirely accurate to say “another,” in my case, since this was my first time attending this gargantuan three-headed hydra of a media conference, which draws thousands of film, music, digital and BBQ aficionados to Austin every March. In all honesty I can’t say it was the most auspicious introduction, and for reasons that have little to do with any of the movies I saw over the past week. It’s scarcely the festival’s fault that one man’s reckless, foolish actions ended up killing three people and injuring 22 others, but the presence of real-life tragedy couldn’t help but cast a lingering pall over the proceedings — one that no amount of »
