Halloween 2017: Tamika’s Horror Double Feature – Honeymoon (2014) and 10 Cloverfield Lane

  • DailyDead
[To get you into the spooky spirit, the Daily Dead team is spotlighting double features that we think would be fun to watch this Halloween season. Keep an eye on Daily Dead for more double feature recommendations, and check here for our previous Halloween 2017 coverage.]

The two films in this Halloween season double feature recommendation seem like an unlikely pairing, but definitely have more in common than meets the eye. Despite little differences here and there, both films are small, loud, shocking, and out of this world. I also really enjoy films whose plots slowly unravel, and we learn what is going on as the truth is revealed to the characters. For me, that kind of pacing keeps you guessing from start to finish, and Honeymoon (2014) and 10 Cloverfield Lane have all of these elements in spades.

To set the mood for what will be roughly four hours of an extraterrestrial-beings-take-over-our-world marathon, I recommend that you start things off with Honeymoon, directed by Leigh Janiak and starring Harry Treadaway (Mr. Mercedes, Penny Dreadful), Rose Leslie (Game of Thrones), Ben Huber, and Hanna Brown. It tells the story of newlyweds Paul (Treadaway) and Bea (Leslie), who are

Mary Elizabeth Winstead to Star in Eva Vives’ Feature Directorial Debut

Winstead in “Fargo”: FX Networks

Hot off the heels of her turn as con artist-with-a-heart-of-gold Nikki Swango on FX’s “Fargo,” Mary Elizabeth Winstead has booked her next role — and it’s in a woman-helmed film. Winstead is set to star in Eva Vives’ feature directorial debut, the semi-autobiographical “All About Nina.” The “Smashed” actress will portray the titular character, a professionally successful but personally dissatisfied stand-up comedian. Deadline broke the story.

“To escape a difficult ex and to prepare for a prospectively life-changing audition, Nina flees to Los Angeles where she meets Rafe (Common, ‘Selma’),” the source summarizes, “who challenges almost every preconception she has — including those around her own deeply troubled past.”

“All About Nina’s” supporting cast includes Kate Del Castillo (“Ingobernable”), Clea DuVall (“Veep”), Melonie Diaz (“Fruitvale Station”), Camryn Manheim (“Person of Interest”), Mindy Sterling (“Black-ish”), Angelique Cabral (“Band Aid”), Beau Bridges (“Masters of Sex”), Chace Crawford (“Gossip Girl”), and Jay Mohr (“Suburgatory”).

Deadline doesn’t specify, but it’s likely Vives will pen as well as direct the dark comedy, which originated at the 2016 Sundance Institute’s Screenwriters and Directors Labs. Vives will also produce with Diablo Entertainment’s Natalie Qasabian, Eric B. Fleischman, and Sean Tabibian. Brian Kavanaugh-Jones and Joshua Astrachan are exec producing.

Vives has previously directed the shorts “Me, Myself, & I,” “She Pedals Fast (For a Girl),” and “Join the Club.” She worked as a producer, editor, and casting director on the Sundance and Cannes awarding-winning short “Five Feet High and Rising.”

Winstead was nominated for an Independent Spirit Award for playing an alcoholic trying to stay sober in “Smashed.” Her recent credits include “Mercy Street,” “BrainDead,” and “10 Cloverfield Lane.” She received a Saturn Award for her work in the latter.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead to Star in Eva Vives’ Feature Directorial Debut was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Halloween 2017: 31 Movies to Watch on Hulu This October

  • DailyDead
Last week, I gave you guys a few lists from Amazon and Netflix in regards to what they have to offer via their streaming services this fall. As a newbie to Hulu, I only discovered over the weekend that they, too, beyond just being an amazing resource for television programming, offer up a killer selection of genre movies that are free to stream with a standard Hulu membership.

Here’s a look at an assortment of 31 films from Hulu that I think would be great movies to stream this October. I tried to give you guys a wide variety, too, hitting various sub-genres, so hopefully there’s a little bit of something for everyone in this list.

The Faculty

As far as high school horror films go, The Faculty has remained one of my very favorites for years now. Essentially, it’s Robert Rodriguez riffing on The X-Files, and who can resist that?

Scott Pilgrim Vs The World Midnights at The Tivoli This Weekend

“You made me swallow my gum! That’s going to be in my digestive tract for seven years!”

Scott Pilgrim Vs The World plays midnights this weekend (September 29th and 30th) at the Tivoli as part of their Reel Late at the Tivoli Midnight series.

Take every genre that can be adapted into film, then go slightly beyond that, and you may find the 2010 film Scott Pilgrim Vs The World. British director Edgar Wright, after Shawn Of The Dead and before The World’S End, adapted Bryan Lee O’Malley’s Oni Press comic book of the same name about the eponymous slacker rocker and his colorful quest to defeat his dream girl’s seven evil ex-boyfriends. Wright captured the theme of the comic book, mixed in an aggressive visual style inspired by video games, amplified musical exchanges so they resonated like a live concert, and applied the physical laws of a Loony Tunes Cartoon.

The Best Video Games Based on Movies: ‘Goldeneye,’ ‘Alien: Isolation,’ and More
Movies based on video games tend to not be very good, ditto games based on movies. Every so often, however, there are exceptions made all the more satisfying by their rarity. These date back decades, from the Sega Genesis version of “Aladdin” that many a kid played in the early ‘90s to the “Chronicles of Riddick” shooter that was better than the movie itself, and continues to this day.

Moving from the silver screen to the console seems to be easier than the opposite route. Here are the best video games based on movies:
