Detour review

23 May 2017 11:27 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Hannah Woodhead

The latest in the proud American tradition of road trip movies, Detour sees Tye Sheridan’s despondent Californian teen Harper bullied into a misguided mission to Las Vegas by the nefarious Johnny (Emory Cohen) and his wide-eyed accomplice Cherry (Bel Powley). Harper suspects his stepfather (Stephan Moyer) has had a hand in the accident that’s left his mother in a coma, and in a drunken moment of madness, hires Johnny to kill him. It’s a fairly formulaic plot that at first could be mistaken for Fargo in the desert – and although it lacks the nuance and brilliant dialogue found in the Coen Brother’s classic film, in Detour, director and writer Christopher Smith works hard way to breathe new life into a road oft-travelled, but there always feels like something’s off.

Combining the sluggish feel of the vast Californian highway with a sense of impending dread, »

Night of the Demon (Rendez-vous avec la peur)

20 May 2017 10:15 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

This French disc release of the Jacques Tourneur classic gets everything right — including both versions in picture perfect transfers. Devil debunker Dana Andrews locks horns with Niall MacGinnis, a necromancer “who has decoded the Old Book” and can summon a fire & brimstone monster from Hell, no election fraud necessary. Even fans that hate ghost stories love this one — it’s a truly creepy, intelligent highlight of the horror genre.

Our Favourite Mother/Daughter Acting Duos

Our Favourite Mother/Daughter Acting DuosOur Favourite Mother/Daughter Acting DuosZachary Dent5/12/2017 3:40:00 Pm

To celebrate Mother's Day we're taking a look at our 5 favourite mother/daughter acting duos who've made a name for themselves in Hollywood.

Janet Leigh and Jamie Lee Curtis

Not only are these two mother and daughter but they've had some of the most iconic female roles in horror movie history. Janet Leigh was a bonafide scream queen from the late 1950's up until the early 1980's. She starred in Touch of Evil, The Fog, and of course Psycho for which she received an Oscar nomination. Jamie Lee Curtis first gained mainstream attention with her portrayal of Laurie in John Carpenter's Halloween which sparked a multi-decade franchise. She has since solidified herself among Hollywood greats with Freaky Friday, True Lies, and A Fish Called Wanda.

Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher

The Best Of The Best – The Greatest Composers And The Scores That Made Them Great

10 May 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Dave Roper

With Actors, Directors, Actresses and Screenwriters under our collective belt and Cinematographers still to come, we presently turn our eye towards Composers, whose music lends so much to the films they work on.

As with the other lists, credit is given for not merely one or two sterling scores, but rather a consistently excellent body of work with specific stand-out films. To be blunt, this is a trickier prospect than it at first appears. Just because a film is terrific or well-loved doesn’t necessarily mean that the score is itself a standout. We begin with perhaps the most obvious and celebrated film composer of them all…..

John WilliamsStar Wars

Goodness me. The Poseidon Adventure, The Towering Inferno, Earthquake, Jaws, Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Long Goodbye, Catch Me If You Can, Star Wars, Close Encounters, Star Wars, Superman, Et, Born on the Fourth of July, »

How Hot Docs, North America’s Smartest Festival, Could Anoint an Oscar Winner

9 May 2017 8:15 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

In a world where TV networks fight for the opportunity to showcase the best nonfiction content that will keep viewers on their couches, the Toronto-based Hot Docs Canadian International Film Festival (April 27 – May 7) is a very, very good place to be.

What began 24 years ago as a modest showcase for Canadian documentaries is now a sprawling international program that screens 230 titles from 58 countries. The festival still favors homegrown product, but also amplifies movies from Sundance (“Chasing Coral,” “Long Strange Trip,” “City of Ghosts”) and Tribeca (“The Departure,” “A River Below”), as well as some international (Joe Berlinger’s “Intent to Destroy”) and world premieres (“A Moon of Nickel and Ice”).

“Hot Docs creates an environment where you can meet with the best in the documentary world,” said director Cullen Hoback, who brought his sharp pollution whodunit “What Lies Upstream” first to Slamdance, then to Hot Docs (Preferred Content is seeking »

Hot Docs 2017 Review: 78/52, An Endearing, Insightful Study of a Single Masterstroke of a Cinematic Legend

7 May 2017 8:30 PM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

At the end of the Summer of 1960 audiences and fans of British auteur Alfred Hitchcock and his already stellar filmography scurried into cinemas to watch his new film, Psycho. Riding a growing wave of popularity, hot on the heels of films like North by Northwest in ‘59, Vertigo in ‘58 and his television series Alfred Hitchcock Presents there was an anticipation but also an expectation as to what Psycho was going to be about. Little did the general public know that Hitchcock was rallying against that expectation and was going to play a tremendous prank that would shake this audience to its core.    Alexandre O. Philippe’s documentary 78/52 breaks down and explores, to tremendous detail, the most infamous shower scene in the history...

Hitchcock/Truffaut – Review

30 April 2017 5:21 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

I was 12 years old in 1968. One of my favorite places was the library, in those days the closest library to us was the Tesson Ferry Branch in South St. Louis County. My most prized possession was my library card.

My Mother used to drop me off there on a Saturday or a summer weekday and I would spend the whole day reading. One of those days I pulled a book off the shelf called Hitchcock/Truffaut and sat down to read it. I knew who Alfred Hitchcock was from his television show, and from his monthly Mystery Magazine as well as anthologies that I was reading avidly, Tales That Frightened Even Me, More Tales for the Nervous and, my favorite, Stories to be Read After Dark.

I was aware that Alfred Hitchcock was most renowned for directing movies. I had seen a few on television, Saboteur was a mainstay on Kplr TV, »

The Salesman

25 April 2017 1:27 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

This Iranian import made news when its director found himself on the wrong side of the recent travel ban. It’s well worth the bother. Asghar Farhadi’s suspense story can’t be topped for maturity, insight or honest emotions about social stress: after an assault in a new apartment, the strain affects everything that a wife and husband do — driving a wedge through their marriage. Is it all built on a shaky foundation, like the crumbling apartment building they had to evacuate?

How the Ending of Bates Motel Changed Norman's Story

25 April 2017 9:35 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Bates Motel shut its doors for the final time (until a lovely new family opens them for business and hopefully doesn't murder anyone) on Monday. The fifth season was a satisfying cap on a show that had me wondering from the very first premiere: how can this end? After all, Alfred Hitchcock had already finished the story in his 1960 film, Psycho. How would a prequel add anything new or exciting to the end of Norman Bates's tale? We actually knew going into "The Cord" that A&E's iteration was taking an entirely different route. The series had already moved past the events of the film, which go down in a different way. (Long story short: Norman doesn't kill Marion Crane, aka Rihanna, in the shower. Instead, he murders Sam Loomis, the philandering husband of his townie crush, Madeleine.) Norman confesses to the crime, but Norma starts taking over his body, »

‘Bates Motel’ Shuts Its Doors With Bloody Series Finale; Will Other Hitchcock Pics Find Their Way To TV?

Spoiler Alert: This story contains details of tonight's Bates Motel series finale. Tonight, A&E’s Bates Motel wrapped up its five-season run with the episode “The Cord,” and when you think about it that’s quite a feat considering how others have tried and failed to expand the universe of Alfred Hitchcock’s 1960 classic Psycho. The movie’s sequels during the 1980s were met with a lukewarm response by audiences and critics, even though Psycho II featured Anthony Perkins… »

A Very Solid Supercut of Some of the Best Horror Movie Villains

There have been countless montages and supercuts of all kind of movie characters, villains included.  However, whenever something new comes out I’m always interested to see what it looks like.   If you want to get a decent glimpse of nearly every solid horror movie villain in the span of only 5 minutes set to some interesting music, this might be a video worth your while. P.S. is there any more sinister a still photo from any movie than this one from Psycho?  I think it’s because of this picture of Anthony Perkins as Norman Bates that I tend to make
