Halloween Cinema A-z

It’s been a while since we went alphabetical here at Roobla, so to get you even more in the mood for October 31, here’s a Halloween special. There’s the odd tenuous link here and there, but we hope you find it fun and perhaps even a little useful…

A is for Alien. Ridley Scott‘s 1979 groundbreaking sci-fi horror remains just that.

B is for Bram Stoker. Okay, obviously the Dracula author never had a hand in any screenplays, but imagine how much poorer cinema in general would be if that book had never been written.

C is for castles, They’ve been the setting for many a horror movie, and with good reason: does it get more spine-tingling?

D is for disappointing. When was the last time you went to the cinema to see a new release and were genuinely scared?

E is for Elm Street. You wouldn

What Happens on Ahs: Cult Could All Boil Down to This Character's Unique Name

  • BuzzSugar
Of all the insane things that happen in American Horror Story: Cult's second episode, "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark," one of the more shocking moments is when Ally (Sarah Paulson) and Ivy (Allison Pill) offhandedly reveal the full name of their young son, Ozzy: Ozymandias Mayfair-Richards. Quite a mouthful, huh? While the nature of Oz's true parentage is still up for debate - we have a strong feeling his "real" mom is Ivy, but who's the father? - the meaning behind his full name is crystal clear. So, where does the name Ozymandias come from? A poem, actually. A very ominous poem. Although the name Ozymandias (which means "a tyrant, a dictator, a megalomaniac; someone or something of immense size, a colossus") has Greek roots and dates back to roughly 323 BC, Percy Bysshe Shelley brought the word to prominence in 1818 after publishing a sonnet by the same name.

Fantasia’s Frontières Market: The Best Horror Films Yet to Be Made, Including George Romero’s ‘Road of the Dead’

For the past six years, genre moviemakers and moneymen have congregated for long weekends at Montreal’s Fantasia International Film Festival, taking part in the Frontières Co-Production Marketplace. Founded in 2012, the market was conceived as a place for horror/fantasy/action auteurs — both established names and newcomers — to pitch projects to potential backers and take part in various networking events.

A highlight of the Market is the opening-day pitch session, in which selected directors, writers, and producers offer multimedia presentations of their nascent features. At the very first Frontières, this event spawned Anouk Whissell, Francois Simard, and Yoann-Karl Whissell’s exuberant futuristic actioner “Turbo Kid”; subsequent movies that took their first steps to fruition there include Steven Kostanski and Jeremy Gillespie’s cult/monster horror film “The Void”; Caroline Labrèche and Steeve Léonard’s science-fiction thriller “Radius,” which premiered at this year’s Fantasia; and Jenn Wexler’s upcoming punk-slasher opus “The Ranger.

As Trump News Cycle Swirls, TV News Bets on Interest in O.J. Simpson

As Trump News Cycle Swirls, TV News Bets on Interest in O.J. Simpson
Ashleigh Banfield, the veteran TV-news reporter, has been wandering around this week in the 110-degree heat of Las Vegas. By the time Thursday rolls around, things in that rollicking city are likely to get even hotter.

Banfield is hoofing around Nevada to cover the July 20th parole hearing of O.J. Simpson, the one-time NFL great whose acquittal in the 1994 murder of his wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ron Goldman, and subsequent sentencing in 2008 for robbery of sports memorabilia from a Las Vegas hotel room have captivated a nation for decades.

The country’s TV-news outlets believe Simpson’s plight will do so again. He became eligible for parole after serving nine years of a 33-year sentence.

Two high-profile TV series – Espn’s 2016 documentary “O.J.: Made in America” and FX’s 2016 series “The People vs. O.J. Simpson” – returned Simpson’s legal travails to the national conversation. Now, the prospect that he may be freed at a

‘The Trip to Spain’ Review: Steve Coogan, Rob Brydon and Michael Caine Return for Year’s Funniest Film – Tribeca 2017

‘The Trip to Spain’ Review: Steve Coogan, Rob Brydon and Michael Caine Return for Year’s Funniest Film – Tribeca 2017
Firmly cementing its series’ status as the “Before” movies of male friendship, “The Trip to Spain” may seem like nothing more than a third taste of a favorite dish, but the best meals in life are worth eating thrice, and this one has been simmered in some tangy new spices and aged to perfection.

Once again, British comedians Rob Brydon and Steve Coogan eat their way through a week-long drive through some repugnantly gorgeous European countryside. Once again, their playful (but gently existential) rivalry is expressed through dueling impressions of the more famous men who came before them; despite an obligatory appearance from Michael Caine(s), this installment belongs to Mick Jagger and Roger Moore. And once again, a bouquet of melancholy notes results in a bittersweet aftertaste that lingers on the tongue, as our two heroes — recast as Don Quixote and Sancho Panza tilting at wind turbines — struggle to

‘City of Tiny Lights’ Review

Stars: Riz Ahmed, Billie Piper, James Floyd, Roshan Seth, Cush Jumbo | Written by Patrick Neate | Directed by Pete Travis

I could watch Riz Ahmed in almost anything, but there are limits, tested here by this deeply mediocre British mystery thriller. Adapted by Patrick Neate from his 2005 novel, City of Tiny Lights is helmed by Pete Travis, who in 2012 nearly rescued Judge Dredd from comic book movie hell. But while Travis transposes some of Dredd’s style, he cannot bring its boldness, humour or efficiency.

Ahmed plays Tommy Akhtar, a “snoop” who is so underground that even his job description is unclear. Basically, he’s a private detective. One day he’s visited by a working woman named Melody (Cush Jumbo). Her flatmate is missing. Tommy investigates and finds the body of a Pakistani businessman. It’s a discovery that will bring him into close contact with two blasts from his

Grimm season 6 episode 8 review: The Son Also Rises

Christine Horton Feb 27, 2017

When will Grimm stop the Wesen-of-the-week stories in favour of wrapping up its overall arcs in time for the finale?

6.8 The Son Also Rises

Another week, another random Wesen-related mystery – this time we were presented with a tale that was ‘heavily influenced’ by Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein.

The gist of it is a scientist – named Victor Shelley, I kid you not – attempts to bring his dead son back to life, with the aid of a few stolen body parts from the local cemetery. What he doesn’t take into account is those body parts are taken from Wesen, leading him to create a human-hybrid monster with murder on his mind. We’re

Grimm Season 6 Episode 8 Review: The Son Also Rises

  • TVfanatic
I confess: I had a really, really hard time deciding what grade to give Grimm Season 6 Episode 8 because I was just too busy laughing my head off.

It was just so difficult to take "The Son Also Rises" with any amount of seriousness, particularly as a person with a degree in English and a modicum of scientific understanding.

In one of the most blatant riffs on Mary Shelley's Frankenstein I have ever seen, Grimm had pretty much everything except for villagers wielding torches and pitchforks!

The whole thing was started by the un-subtley named Victor Shelley got into a car accident with his son, killing (not mostly killing, or nearly killing, but actually killing!) said son.

In a feat of astonishing scientific brilliance (otherwise known as magic), Dr. Shelley and his colleagues actually managed to resurrect the son! They literally brought him back from the dead!

Catalog From The Beyond: The Abominable Snowman (1957)

  • DailyDead
You’d be hard-pressed to find anyone more attractive to an anglophile. With gaunt, angular features and a proper aristocratic accent, Peter Cushing could just as easily sell you a first-edition Charles Dickens novel as he could read a line of dialogue. Inserting those proper English characteristics into tales of bloodthirsty creatures is part of what makes Hammer films so entertaining. In the case of Val Guest’s 1957 creature feature, The Abominable Snowman, those admirable characteristics are also integral parts of the plot.

The Abominable Snowman follows Dr. John Rollason (Peter Cushing) on a botanical expedition in the Himalayas. On his journey, Rollason is approached by Dr. Tom Friend (Forrest Tucker) who, along with Ed Shelley (Robert Brown), Andrew McNee (Michael Brill), and Kusang (Wolfe Morris), is in search of the mythical Yeti that is claimed to inhabit the mountain. Rollason’s wife, Helen (Maureen Connell), is convinced that he
