‘Legends of Tomorrow’ Producer Teases Rip’s Return, George Lucas and More in Midseason Premiere

‘Legends of Tomorrow’ Producer Teases Rip’s Return, George Lucas and More in Midseason Premiere
Since the Season 2 premiere of “Legends of Tomorrow,” the team has had one over-arching concern — locating their captain Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill). After hopping through multiple eras in time, and teaming with Green Arrow, Flash, and Supergirl to fight off an alien invasion, December’s midseason finale finally revealed that Hunter has been working on a film set in 1967 Hollywood.

Variety spoke with executive producer Phil Klemmer about the midseason premiere — including what Rip’s been up to, how George Lucas factors into the episode, and more…

Rip is back…sort of. What has he been up to while the rest of the Legends have been looking for him?

You’ll find that what you see is what you’ll get. He’s not pretending, he’s not incognito. Rip is suffering from a version of what you’d call amnesia. When we find him he’s one of these “Raging Bull” and “Easy Rider”-era filmmakers

“Because of circumstances, the time aberration in episode 209 is George Lucas quits film school,” states Guggenheim. “As a result, he never makes Star Wars or Raiders of the Lost Ark. As a result, Ray, who became an engineer because of Star Wars, and Nate, who became a historian because of Raiders, slowly start to lose their brilliance, because those things that inspired them to become who they are didn’t exist.”

Young George Lucas To Appear On Legends Of Tomorrow

Star Wars is hotter than ever right now, yet you rarely hear about George Lucas these days. Since signing away his rights a few years back, the director has kept a low profile of late, minus the occasional news headline every now and again, but he’s set to make a comeback very shortly — if not quite as himself. That’s because Matt Angel will play a young, soon-to-be notorious version of the film legend in a new episode of The CW’s Legends of Tomorrow.

The time-traveling series, which finds a motley crew journeying through time to fight forces of evil, will soon introduce the iconic filmmaker, one who’s responsible for the most famous sci-fi franchise of all-time. He’ll first appear in the ninth episode of season 2, titled “Raiders of the Lost Art.”

The Funhouse Massacre Slices and Dices Your Funny Bone: A Film Review

Director: Andy Palmer. Writers: Ben Begley and Renee Dorian. Cast: Robert Englund, Jere Burns, Scottie Thompson, Matt Angel and Chasty Ballesteros. The Funhouse Massacre is an indie horror feature from director Andy Palmer (Badlands of Kain). Written by Ben Begley and Renee Dorian, this title blends a lot of blood with some comedy, on Halloween night. Serial killers haunt an amusement park. And, a family reunion, created in Hell, offers a decent climax. Meanwhile, a theme involving impersonation is appropriate for the film's Halloween setting, while The Funhouse Massacre manages to create an entertaining horror world. In the story, actor Robert Englund appears as a blood-thirsty warden. He allows a journalist to tour his psychiatric hospital. The hospital pens several serial killers in its walls. While the journalist and warden become better acquainted, six murderers escape their confines. The taxidermist (Clint Howard), the cannibal (E. E. Bell), the dentist charmer, a killing...

Review: The Funhouse Massacre

It sure is a good feeling when a unique and downright entertaining horror films comes your way. I’m a sucker for slasher films, and I’m equally in love with slow-burn horror dramas such as The Witch or At The Devil’S Door. So, it would probably be a fair assessment to say my tastes are something of a hybrid of both, the over the top gory fare with the emotionally affecting story-driven films that remind me of my favorite type of horror: the genre films of the 1970’s. It’s with an absolutely perfect eye for combining the gory and hilarious with the shocking and character-driven stories that the Ben Begley/Renee Dorian-written, Andy Palmer-directed film The Funhouse Massacre arrives.

It’s apparent from the very opening of the film, that we’re in store for one wild ride, when a group of insane (and very

Film Review: ‘The Funhouse Massacre’

Film Review: ‘The Funhouse Massacre’
A half-dozen real-life, asylum-sprung homicidal lunatics take over the haunted-house attraction exploiting their crimes in “The Funhouse Massacre.” Not the cleverest or most original horror comedy, Andy Palmer’s indie feature is nonetheless above average within that subgenre, offering fast-paced fun for fans. It opened theatrically on 21 U.S. screens Nov. 13, but will make principal impact in home formats.

The biggest name here is Freddy Krueger originator Robert Englund, though his participation is limited to the 14-minute prologue. He plays the warden of a secret prison for the criminally insane, where several notorious maniacs have been locked up sans trial for society’s greater good. On Halloween night he allows a comely if suspiciously goth-styled alleged journalist, “Ms. Quinn” (Candice De Visser), to tour the facility.

But their interview takes a lethal turn, as the lady proves to be the daughter of the Jim Jones-like mass-murdering cult leader known

The Funhouse Massacre Review

The Funhouse Massacre presents itself as just another indiscriminate indie-horror flick, but as someone who’s been fooled by many similarly crafted duds, I can assure you that this roadside slaughterhouse is a much more enjoyable beast. Writer Ben Begley, who also plays a bumbling deputy, is not only able to craft a horror flick that’s loads of hellish fun, but this colorful massacre remain consistently funny throughout – not an easy task for scary comedies these days. While Begley’s tongue-in-cheek antics become a bit overplayed in a few instances, it fares far better than most jovial copycats of the same ilk, and holds its own against modern gore-chucklers with much bigger budgets. In the vein of a much more over-the-top The Houses October Built, The Funhouse Massacre is one of 2015’s hidden horror gems despite a smaller-format rollout, loaded with guts and bursting with psycho-carnie ferocity.
