Dan Stevens is Not to be Trusted in First Trailer for Adam Wingard’s The Guest

26 June 2014 8:09 AM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Former “Downton Abbey” star Dan Stevens is not to be trusted in “You’re Next” director Adam Wingard’s latest, the thriller “The Guest,” which gets a pretty intense looking trailer that you can take a gander at below, folks who enjoy taking a gandering. “You’re Next” was a great movie and I’m still holding out for a sequel to that one, though not one without Sharni Vinson’s character. I mean, a sequel without her would be kind of pointless, right? But let’s move on to “The Guest” and what he has plan for this poor family and their hot blonde daughter. I’m going to go out on a limb and guess “nothing good.” A soldier introduces himself to the Peterson family, claiming to be a friend of their son who died in action. After the young man is welcomed into their home, a series »

'You’re Next' Film Review

17 May 2014 12:40 AM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

Reviewed by Jesse Miller, MoreHorror.com

You know how you can sit through a film and find that it’s just not mustering up enough tension or thrills, chills – you name it, it is lacking in it? Well, You’re Next is a slasher film that knows what to deliver. It gets in, it sets up the characters, the tension and from there on, it is a rip-roaring dash to the bloody finish and man, is it effective!

A family comes together for the first time in what we assume is quite a few years and instantly, they all bicker and carry on after a few hours together – as most families tend to do. The main focus in this large ensemble cast is the couple Crispen (A. J. Bowen) and Erin (Sharni Vinson), a spunky Australian that this family seems to dislike. The film wastes no time in introducing each »

An Exclusive Interview with 'Patrick' Star Sharni Vinson

18 March 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

Sharni Vinson garnered profound praise from fans and critics alike for her turn in Adam Wingard's You’re Next, and this year the actress has returned to the horror genre in the new remake of the 1978 Australian thriller Patrick. In the new version, Vinson plays a nurse who shares a profound connection with the titular character, a comatose patient with telekinetic powers. We recently had the pleasure of connecting with Ms. Vinson, who told us why she loves performing her own stunts, describes becoming an icon for female empowerment, and hints at her role in an upcoming all-female Expendables-style film.     Fearnet: You’re becoming known as a very versatile actor who can perform a lot of her own stunts. Which of your stunts did you perform in Patrick?    Vinson: Patrick was probably the movie that I have done the most stunts in. We had these incredible rigs that I would get thrown backwards by, »

Film Review: ‘Patrick: Evil Awakens’

14 March 2014 12:21 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A comatose patient with telekinetic powers runs amok without leaving his bed at a mad doctor’s clinic in “Patrick: Evil Awakens.” This well-crafted remake of the 1978 Aussie cult item “Patrick” marks a steady move into scripted features for helmer Mark Hartley, whose impressive documentary “Not Quite Hollywood” chronicled the 1970s and ‘80s golden age of Aussie exploitation cinema. Rich in gothic trappings and sporting a terrific central performance by Sharni Vinson (“You’re Next”) as a nurse in Patrick’s sinister sights, the pic has some wobbly dialogue and doesn’t deliver full-blown terror, but should satisfy audiences hankering for old-school genre entertainment. Tepid B.O. during the film’s October 2013 Oz run doesn’t bode well for its limited U.S. theatrical bow on March 14; outlook is much brighter for same-day VOD release and homevid fortunes.

The film unfolds in the Roget Clinic, a privately run facility »

Patrick divides Us critics

13 March 2014 3:15 PM, PDT | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

Rechristened Patrick: Evil Awakens, Mark Hartley.s re-imagining of Richard Franklin.s 1978 cult horror film Patrick opens in the Us today.

Many Us critics had already seen and reviewed the film, which is being released simultaneously on Video-on-Demand and in cinemas in Los Angeles, New York and Columbus, Ohio, by Phase 4 Films.

The latest batch of Us reviews is a mixed bag, ranging from the mostly effusive to a couple that were dismissive. On the positive side, Blu-ray.com.s Brian Orndorf declared, .Armed with a brand name and movie geek recognition, the producers have elected to mount Patrick once again, using contemporary fright film mechanics to sell a familiar tale. Against all odds, they.ve managed to succeed where many efforts fail, returning the tension and peculiarity of the premise for another go-around of telekinetic terror..

Orndorf praised the performances of Sharni Vinson, the nurse who forms »

Patrick: Evil Awakens, a Techno-Thriller of Brain-Dead Proportions

11 March 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

Electroshock therapy doesn't cure the comatose in Patrick: Evil Awakens, but it does turn vegetative Patrick (Jason Gallagher) into a telekinetic psychopath intent on stalking nurse Kathy (Sharni Vinson) by looking through her Facebook photos and burning her beaus with grills and overheated cell phones.

Mark Hartley's ludicrous Australian import is set in a Horror 101-grade rotting former convent where Dr. Roget (Charles Dance), with the aid of his daughter, Matron Cassidy (Rachel Griffiths), tries to awaken brain trauma-stricken patients via experiments involving drugs and high-voltage electricity.

In this preposterous place of medicine, Roget does his dirty work in a secret basement lab while Kathy strikes up a rapport with motionless Patrick, who's soon using »
