‘The Lachrymist’ is a Mind-Bending, One-Take Wonder

Short of the DayHang on to your sanity.

Literally, the word “lachrymology” means “the study of crying.” Philosophically, it describes the belief that spiritual advancement is only possible through pain, both of the physical and emotional varieties.

While The Lachrymist from writer-director Matthew Gowan doesn’t confront this philosophy head on, it is certainly an emotional undercurrent of this taut, chilling, deviously confounding tale of psychological terror.

The plot is hauntingly simple: Savitri (Navi Rawat, Numb3rs, The O.C.) checks into a hotel room with her husband Byron (James Harvey Ward, True Blood, Low Winter Sun). At one point, she leaves the room, but when she tries to make her way back to it, somehow she can’t seem to find it. She asks the staff to help her, but they can’t because she’s not a registered guest of the hotel. Furthermore, they claim to have never seen her, and

Manchester City 3-2 Southampton – Samir Nasri Strike Settles Triller

Manchester City won a tough match against promoted Southampton, fighting back from 2-1 down to win the match 3-2 in the Premier League this afternoon. Goals from Carlos Tevez, Eden Dzeko and Samir Nasri were enough to see off the visitors, who scored through substitutes Rickie Lambert and Steven Davis.

City gave a debut to summer signing Jack Rodwell, and Joe Hart returned in goal, while Southampton handed a league debut to seventeen year old James Ward-Prowse, plus Saints debuts for Jay Rodriguez and Nathaniel Clyne.

Southampton started off the better team and showed composure in possession. After Sergio Aguero was carried off injured after a tackle from Clyne, City reacted and won a penalty when Carlos Tevez was fouled by Hooiveld after a lovely through ball flick from Samir Nasri. David Silva’s tame penalty was saved, however, and Southampton were at the very least City’s equals in the first half hour.

Mightily impressive trailer for icy Pa thriller 10,000 Days

From the assistant director of 3 Ninjas: Knuckle Up comes an apocalyptic vision of a frozen hell on earth. Sounds like Alberta, Canada. The film is called 10,000 Days and the first trailer premiered a while ago. Not sure how we missed this one as it looks impressive considering the budget, but hey, you can't be everywhere, right?

Synopsis:

10,000 days ago, Comet 23 struck the Pacific Ocean with the magnitude of all the nuclear weapons in the world. The Best Family was among the lucky few who survived the heat blast and fire storms. And then the freezing began. The comet knocked the Earth away from the sun, encasing the planet in snow and ice. For those who survived, life was violent and dangerous.

The daily battle wasn't just against the punishing climate but against each other for the basic necessities that meant life or death. Still, the weather was growing colder and the ice was expanding.

‘True Blood’ Recap: Sookie Rejects Eric (Again) And The Witches Launch Their First Attack

Another outstanding episode! Does anyone else think this season might be the best one yet?

Sookie (Anna Paquin) and Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) continued playing the world’s most awkward game of “house” ever on the July 3 episode of True Blood, and I’m really starting to wonder what’s wrong with Sookie. A rich, hot, powerful vampire is throwing himself at her, and she won’t even give him a chance? This girl needs to get her head examined!

Speaking of heads, Sookie is about to have a whole new pile of Eric troubles after his encounter with the witches this week. Bill (Stephen Moyer) sent Eric to break up Marnie’s (Fiona Shaw) coven, and just as his plan seemed to be going smoothly, Marnie whipped out her most terrifying spell yet. Channeling all sorts of freaky spirits, Marnie put a curse on the Nordic Wonder and totally wiped out his memory!

Be My Wife | True Blood: "I Got A Right To Sing The Blues" (S3/E6)

  • Pajiba
Well now, that was not for the squeamish, was it? I'm the wuss who had to turn away a couple of times, especially when Tara was onscreen. Girlfriend had a lot of rage she needed to get out and did she ever. Oh Franklin, we never knew ye! Fare thee well on the other side, my psychotic friend. It was good to see a little bit of the old, feisty Tara using her brain and standing up for herself. On the flip side of the coin, who the hell is writing dialogue for Sookie? Just when I thought she couldn't be more dim, the words that came out of her mouth - they were really just horrifyingly stupid.

In a lovely slow-motion opening, Russell and his goons march Sookie into the Pleasure Palace; Bill is pushed to the floor. As Lorena and Eric walk into the foyer, joining Talbot, Russell

'True Blood' news bites: Episodes 7-11 revealed, HBO peddles reruns and more

Are you starting to salivate for the next episode of "True Blood" on Sunday? So are we and waiting sucks! Here are few stories that are helping us get over hump day!

HBO is shopping around reruns to commercial cable networks. That would be an easy sell for the network, but a few previously sold HBO shows didn't do very well in repeats at their new homes: "True Blood" creator Alan Ball's "Six Feet Under" for Bravo, "Entourage" for Spike,  and "The Sopranos" for A&E. [Los Angeles Times]

The fact that "True Blood" broke the Emmy vampire curse and got nominated for outstanding drama series was good news for fans and HBO. The bad news is that one of its competitors is Showtime's "Dexter." Of course, we're rabid fans of both shows. Well, our pals at FEARnet did an "Emmy Death Match" pitting the two shows against each other. We won't ruin the ending for you,

Summaries of True Blood Episodes 31-35 (Spoiler Alert!)

Season Three of Alan Ball's "True Blood" has been hot and heavy and loaded with surprises, and from the synopses released today by HBO for Episodes 31-35, it shows no signs of slowing down in the slightest.

Thanks go to The Ausiello Files on EW.com for the lowdown; just beware that spoilers abound in the summaries. Sadly, these episodes take us almost to the end of the season (it's short but sweet), and there's no mention of Franklin. I hope we haven't seen the last of him; he's my favorite new character so far!
