It Follows review: A horror masterpiece that never lets go

11 hours ago

Director: David Robert Mitchell; Screenwriter: David Robert Mitchell; Starring: Maika Monroe, Keir Gilchrist, Olivia Luccardi; Running time: 100 mins; Certificate: 15

Your instincts tell you to look away from the screen, but you can't. Your heart thumps harder, your veins pulsate with adrenalin and your fists clench as tightly as possible. Running for it is out of the question, despite the nearby 'Exit' sign clearly highlighted in green neon lights. But why? As the horror masterpiece It Follows demonstrates, being scared s**tless is an addictive sensation.

There's a primal, hypnotic feel to writer-director David Robert Mitchell's movie, which grabs your attention immediately with a brutal opening featuring the mangled body of a teenage girl on the beach as the waves lap the shore. We're soon introduced to the magnificent Maika Monroe's Jay, an alienated 19-year-old whose life takes a horrendous turn after 'something' is passed on to her during an amorous encounter. »

14 hours ago

Ever wondered what Mary Poppins would be like if Slayer provided the soundtrack?

'Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious' has been given a death metal makeover, even though the sound of it is something quite... well, not half bad actually!

It's the Disney classic as you've never seen it before, with Mary Poppins, Bert and a chorus of pearly kings and queens singing screamo on the track.

Rock musician and composer ‪Andy Rehfeldt produced the video, which has already racked up over half a million views since going live on Tuesday (February 24).

The film starring Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke was release in 1964.

Van Dyke recently spoke about 50 years of mockery from Brits over his infamous cockney accent in the film.

15 hours ago

"It drives you a little bit crazy," mused Maika Monroe about some of the water-borne ordeals she encountered while making the brilliant It Follows.

Digital Spy caught up with the blossoming actress to discuss writer-director David Robert Mitchell's relentlessly gripping horror movie, in which Monroe plays a teenager beset by a strange affliction that causes creepy creatures to stalk her. The only way out is sex. Naturally.

Plus we asked her about her work on upcoming Ya alien invasion blockbuster The Fifth Wave, which sees Monroe star alongside Chloë Grace Moretz.

The former Indian model plays Sunaina in the film, in which she stars alongside some of British cinema's most esteemed actors.

In an interview with Digital Spy, she explained: "There was a casting director I've known since my modelling days and she called me to audition for it.

"Then John (Madden) saw the tape and called me for an audition with him and then Fox wanted to meet me and learn a little more about me. I was a relatively new actor, even in India. I had done just one film when I auditioned for this.

"So I went back and auditioned a third time, when I did all my scenes in the film on tape, and then they wanted to know what ads I had done and about the Hindi »

25 February 2015 4:01 PM, PST

Julia Stiles has said that she is hopeful of returning for the next Bourne movie.

Director Paul Greengrass and star Matt Damon will both return for their first entry in the franchise since 2007's The Bourne Ultimatum.

Bourne film will not include Matt Damon, Jeremy Renner crossover

Stiles famously played Treadstone operative Nicky Parsons in 2002's The Bourne Identity, and later appeared in sequels.

The actress recently told reporters that she "would love" to reprise her role as Parsons in the next Bourne movie.

"Yeah, they're writing it now so I'm hoping that my character fits into the storyline somehow," she said.

"But Matt and Paul have so much integrity that they waited a long time before making another one, for many reasons, but largely because they wanted a good story there.

"And they're so much fun to shoot, I would love to be a part of it."

John Travolta's awkward Oscars reunion with Idina Menzel was rehearsed

25 February 2015 9:10 AM, PST

John Travolta and Idina Menzel's recent Oscars reunion was almost more cringeworthy than his mispronunciation of Menzel's name at the ceremony the year before.

Now, a spokesperson for Travolta has confirmed that the pair's entire stage reunion was elaborately planned and rehearsed.

"It was rehearsed in total," the Pulp Fiction star's rep told Us Weekly. "John Travolta loved working with Idina Menzel.

"John had a great time at the Oscars because his wife, Kelly Preston, and his daughter, Ella, were in attendance with him."

Travolta mistakenly announced Menzel as 'Adele Dazeem' ahead of her performance of Frozen's 'Let it Go' at the 2014 Oscars ceremony.

Menzel returned the favour on Sunday night (February 22) by jokingly referring to the actor as "Glom Gazingo".

He responded by slowly stroking the Broadway star's face, saying: "I deserve that. I deserve that. But you, my darling, my beautiful, my wickedly talented Idina Menzel."

The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel review: 'Wish fulfilment for retirees'

25 February 2015 9:00 AM, PST

Director: John Madden; Screenwriters: John N Glenn Ficarra, John Requa; Starring: Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Richard Gere, Bill Nighy, Dev Patel, Celia Imrie, Tamsin Greig, David Strathairn, Tina Desai; Running time: 121 mins; Certificate: 12

Although the title suggests it's not quite as good as the first film, The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is a worthy successor to the 2011 sleeper hit, characterised by the same gentle humour, sunny outlook and slightly doddering plot. Again, it's the talented cast of veterans – Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Bill Nighy and Celia Imrie among them – who bring the required grace, style and finesse, ably supported by new residents Tamsin Greig and silver fox Richard Gere.

In case the pace gets too leisurely, Dev Patel is always on hand like a shot of epinephrine, bouncing off the walls as Jaipur entrepreneur Sonny who is courting an American firm to bankroll plans for the titular second hotel. »

25 February 2015 8:52 AM, PST

Dame Judi Dench has revealed that she can no longer travel by herself due to her poor eyesight.

The actress suffers from age-related macular degeneration, which causes the gradual loss of central vision.

The star had to travel to India to film scenes for The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, and speaking to the Radio Times she explained: "These days I can't really travel on my own because I need someone to say, 'Look out, there's a step here!' or else I fall all over the place like a mad, drunk lady."

On reuniting with the cast from the The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel's comedy sequel - including Bill Nighy and Maggie Smith - Dench enthused: "That's why it was just glorious going back to India again with Mags, Celia, Pep and Bill.

"We're all great friends and we've done masses of things together. It was like an »
