John Cusack and Paul Dano have two of their best roles to date in “Love & Mercy”

2 June 2015 11:59 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

One of my all time favorite actors happens to be John Cusack. Over the past decade or so, one of my newer favorites is Paul Dano. As such, the concept of the two of them in a film together pumped me up from the minute that they were cast in Love & Mercy. Then, I saw it and realized that they wouldn’t be sharing the screen, but instead would be combining to bring the Beach Boys frontman Brian Wilson to life. The film is really strong, using both Cusack and Dano to great effect in a soft of hybrid performance. It’s very unique, and now audiences will get to enjoy their work this weekend when the movie comes to theaters. If you don’t know who Brian Wilson is, well…where have you been? He’s the frontman for the Beach Boys, and this is his story. We see »

Time Machine: Spielberg and Daughter (with 'Indiana Jones' Actress Capshaw) on Oscars Red Carpet

14 May 2015 2:02 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Spielberg on the Oscars' Red Carpet Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Spielberg arrive at the 83rd Academy Awards, held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Spielberg has taken home two Best Director Oscars: Schindler's List (1993) and Saving Private Ryan (1998). Schindler's List also won Best Picture, but Saving Private Ryan lost to John Madden's Miramax-distributed Shakespeare in Love. There was quite a bit of animosity at the time, as some felt that Miramax, owned by brothers Bob and Harvey Weinstein, overdid its Oscar campaigning – while still managing to sway enough Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences members to vote for its film. Somewhat ironically, at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony Steven Spielberg presented the Best Picture Award to The King's Speech. Toplining Colin Firth, Helena Bonham Carter, Geoffrey Rush, Guy Pearce, and Claire Bloom, this British production was »

This classic '80s werewolf movie is getting a remake

6 May 2015 11:57 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The most shocking part of this story: that no one remade "The Howling" before this. Upstart production company Emaji Entertainment has announced that they're "rebooting" Joe Dante's 1981 werewolf classic "as the first in a series of films based upon well known film properties," which is exactly what we need more of. The original film starred the incomparable Dee Wallace as a TV news anchorwoman who is sent to a retreat after a near-fatal encounter with a serial killer and begins to suspect that the residents there may not be what they seem. Spoiler alert: they're hairier than they first appear. The film is notable for being released at a high point for werewolf movies, as John Landis's "An American Werewolf in London" was put out the same year. Both featured groundbreaking transformation sequences -- a 21-year-old Rob Bottin was responsible for the grisly third-act transformation in "The Howling, »

Why 1977 was the best year in movie history

28 April 2015 3:28 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

All week long our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century. Click here for a complete list of our essays. 1977 is the greatest year in film history. I'm positive. Why? It's the year that made you believe giant blockbusters could bring you state-of-the-art science fiction, modern (and enduring) takes on romance, compelling heroes, and a shrewd understanding of real people. It's the year that put us in touch with our most superheroic and most sentimental qualities, and that range alone is worth honoring. '77 is the year that gave us "Star Wars." I could go on about why that's a great movie, or we could just understand that every sci-fi blockbuster since "Star Wars" has had to deal with belittling comparisons to the greatness of "Star Wars." Sure, there've been other blockbusters with grandeur and special effects galore, but did they have C3PO's charisma? »

General Hospital’s 52nd Anniversary Episode: The Devastating Reveal of Legendary Character Luke Spencer

1 April 2015 9:26 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

As a soap fan, I thought General Hospital’s 52nd Anniversary episode deserved some recognition. Today not only paid homage to the stars of the past who started a legacy, it also provided long-awaited answers about what caused the show’s most celebrated and recognizable character to break with reality. So the event which caused Luke Spencer to change so drastically was retold by older sister Patricia Spencer, portrayed by guest star Dee Wallace, and played out in black and white on the screen as Luke’s memories. Today’s episode was unique in several aspects. Firstly, the majority of it was shot in black and white, quite literally transporting fans back 52 years. Jason Thompson, who currently plays Patrick Drake, took on the role of legendary General Hospital doctor Steve Hardy, Elizabeth Webber’s potrayer Rebecca Herbst took on the role of Jessie Brewer, and Ryan Carnes took a break from playing Lucas Jones… »

The 18 Scariest Horror Movie Opening Scenes, Ranked

1 April 2015 5:43 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Some horror movies go with a "slow-build" approach, and some go for the jugular right off the bat. The unexpected horror hit "It Follows" definitely falls into the latter category, as you can see in the opening scene embedded below (narrated by director David Robert Mitchell). Are you sufficiently unnerved? Good! That's what we're going for here. As the indie horror hit prepares to expand into over 1,600 theaters this weekend, below I've ranked 18 of the most iconic/frightening horror openings of all time from least to most scary. The result is a completely objective list that will remain set in stone for all eternity. Are you ready? Can you handle it? Countdown starts now... 18. "Night of the Living Dead" (1968) "They're coming to get you, Barbara." While I have no doubt that contemporary audiences covered their eyes in fright during the opening sequence of Romero's original "Night of the Living Dead, »

Icons of Fright Interview With Zombie Killers: Elephant’S Graveyard Director B. Harrison Smith

12 February 2015 2:18 PM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

B. Harrison Smith isn’t a fan of how everything has been done regarding the zombie subgenre, and well, he’s right. There’s no danger, no character development, and more often than not, zombie films tend to give fans the same ol’ thing. Smith flat out refused to make a zombie film himself, until the idea of Zombie Killers: Elephant’S Graveyard came his way, and an opportunity to give fans a very character-driven, broad piece of zombie cinema came his way. Icons of Fright recently spoke to Smith about the zombie genre, his film and how important story is to a film. Read on!

How’s it going, Harrison?

Jerry Smith, great last name.

Yeah, I love it, I’m so plain. 

Well, it’s a pleasure to talk to you, thanks for reaching out!

Not a problem. First of all, I just wanted to tell you that I really enjoyed your film, »

Exclusive: Felissa Rose on Her Intimidatingly Loving Character in Zombie Killers: Elephant’s Graveyard

12 February 2015 11:15 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Many horror fans met Felissa Rose for the first time one sinister summer at Camp Arawak back in the early 1980s. Though perhaps best known for playing Angela Baker in Robert Hiltzik’s 1983 cult classic, Sleepaway Camp, Rose has portrayed a wide variety of memorable characters in the horror genre since the turn of the century. Her latest role, a deeply religious survivor in the rural town of Elwood in the age of a zombie apocalypse, is certainly no exception.

With Zombie Killers: Elephant’s Graveyard now available on Blu-ray and DVD from Anchor Bay, we caught up with Rose to discuss her intense character, working with Billy Zane and Dee Wallace, Scream Factory’s Sleepaway Camp Collector’s Edition Blu-ray, and much more.

Review: Zombie Killers: Elephant’S Graveyard

3 February 2015 11:14 PM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

It’s very apparent from the first fifteen minutes that B. Harrison Smith’s Zombie Killers: Elephant’S Graveyard is not your typical zombie entry. While most films that fall within the undead subgenre tend to focus solely on special effects and not enough on story, it’s quite the opposite with Zk. While the special effects are just as impressive as any other zombie film, what really sets this one apart from the rest is just how character driven and story-driven it is, giving fans a fresh take on something that unfortunately has become stagnant, and offering fans something that at the end of the day, is incredibly easy to get on board with.

The scope of the film is what brings you in, with a small community living together and surrounded by walls and fences guarded by the “Zombie Killer”, a group of young kids led by Billy Zane’s Seiler character, »
