Top Ten Movies of 2014

23 December 2014 8:15 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I'm curious what the consensus will be in ten to twenty years, once we look back and evaluate the movies of 2014. It seems I continually see people referring to it as either a great year or a terrible year with little in-between. Were you to judge the year on the quality of the mainstream studio features I could see where you might be disappointed. It wasn't exactly the best year for blockbuster cinema. Hell, Christopher Nolan even came out with a new big budget film and it didn't even make it onto my list of Honorable Mentions. However, you look at the mini majors and smaller distributros, studios such as A24, Fox Searchlight, Sony Classics and Open Road and things begin to perk up, but these studios don't market their films on every channel so at the end of the year when people are asking me "what movies they should »

New arrival shakes up talent management business

29 October 2014 3:53 PM, PDT | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

Former Rgm agents Tracey Silvester and Theresa Huska have launched Independent Management Company with the backing of music and theatre impresario Paul Dainty.

The move marks the biggest shake-up in the talent agency business since Natasha Harrison and Lee-Anne Higgins departed Shanahan Management three years ago and formed United Management with Trish McAskill and Catherine Handley.

More than a dozen Rgm clients have crossed to Independent Management. They include Olivia DeJonge, Sigrid Thornton, Dustin Clare, Rick Donald, Sharni Vinson and Chai Romruen.

Us-born, Perth-raised Devon Terrell, who left Rgm earlier this year, has landed the lead in Codes of Conduct, HBO.s drama pilot from Steve McQueen (12 Years a Slave). Terrell, who graduated from Nida last year, is playing a young black man who enters New York high society.

Huska, who had been with Rgm for 10 years, departed in June. She had known Dainty, whom she met via an Rgm client, »

Exclusive: Adam Wingard and Simon Barret Talk The Guest

10 September 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Director Adam Wingard and writer Simon Barrett are known for their collaborations on A Horrible Way to Die, You’re Next, and the V/H/S franchise. They’re back at their unique brand of darkly comedic horror with The Guest (review), which opens in theaters nationwide on September 17th.

In The Guest a mysterious soldier shows up on the doorstep of 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 of accidental deaths occur, which seem oddly connected to his arrival.

We got a chance to catch up with them to ask a few questions… hope we didn’t overstay our welcome!

Dread Central: How come you built the story around a soldier, who is evil? Was there any hesitation in presenting America’s hero as a villain?

Simon Barrett: No. »

'The Guest' (2014) Movie Review

8 September 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Adam Wingard showed a talent for tongue-in-cheek thrills, riffing on the home invasion genre with You're Next, but with The Guest he's one-upped his game and chosen the perfect vessel for doing so in Dan Stevens. The "Downton Abbey" star plays David, a man who introduces himself to the Peterson family as a soldier and friend of their son who died in the war. More specifically he plays something of a Jason Bourne run amuck, though, for the Petersons, that might not necessarily be a bad thing... at first. Since the death of their son the Petersons appear to have grown apart. Mom (Sheila Kelley) and dad (Leland Orser) fight a lot while Luke (Brendan Meyer) is dealing with bullies at school and his older sister, Anna (Maika Monroe), is in her rebelious phase, trying to deal with the fact she's almost 21 and still living at home while saving for college. »

Movie Review – The Guest (2014)

7 September 2014 4:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Guest, 2014.

Directed by Adam Wingard.

Starring Dan StevensMaika Monroe, Brenden Meyer, Sheila Kelley, Leland Orser, Lance Reddick, Joel David Moore, and Chase Williamson.

Synopsis:

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 of accidental deaths seem to be connected to his presence.

Following on from their home invasion genre masher, the brutally brilliant You’re Next, director Adam Wingard and writer Simon Barrett return with The Guest, a thriller that recalls and recaptures the VHS heyday of the 80’s in all of its glory. Staying true to Wingard and Barrett’s style, they take another convention, here it’s the stranger with a mysterious background, then deconstruct it and turn it on its head so the viewer is never quite sure where the story will go next. »

Exclusive: Mark Hartley Talks Patrick: Evil Awakens' Chilling Tone, Thrilling Finale, Crack Cast, and Much More

11 August 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Mark Hartley's reimagining of cult '70s shocker Patrick hits UK DVD shelves today, 11 August, titled Evil Awakens. With this in mind, we recently cornered Hartley as he took a break in London to pick his brain about the film, his feature helming debut.

Until now, Mark has been most widely known for his directorial work on music videos and documentaries such as Not Quite Hollywood and Machete Maidens Unleashed. When quizzed about the circumstances that led to finally getting in the director's chair for a narrative feature film, he tells us, "Well, I had never ever planned, or had any ambition, to make documentaries."

He elaborates, "That kind of happened by accident... I had always intended to make narrative features, and it was just a very difficult process. My background is actually music videos – I’ve made like a hundred and fifty music videos in Australia prior to »

‘Patrick: Evil Awakens’ Review

5 August 2014 6:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Charles Dance, Rachel Griffiths, Sharni Vinson, Martin Crewes, Peta Sergeant | Written by Justin King | Directed by Mark Hartley

Former music video director Mark Hartley came to prominence, at least to me, in 2008 when his wonderful documentary Not Quite Hollywood, which detailed the “Ozploitation” genre, exploded on film blogs and movie sites across the globe. He then followed that up with another documentary, Machete Maidens Unleashed, a look at Filipino genre filmmaking, in 2010. I was fortunate enough to see that doc on the big screen at 2011′s Frightfest Glasgow and now, some three years later Hartley’s feature film debut Patrick: Evil Awakens, a loose remake of Richard Franklin’s seminal 1978 shocker, makes it’s UK debut on DVD.

It’s been some years since I’ve seen Franklin’s original film and it’s Italian lensed “sequel” Patrick Lives Again, but it’s not like anyone can actually forget »

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, »
