The Monkey’s Paw (2013) review

22 October 2014 11:17 PM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

Reviewed by Kevin Scott

MoreHorror.com

The Monkey’s Paw (2013)

Written by: W.W. Jacobs (short novel), Macon Blair (screenplay)

Directed by: Brett Simmons

Cast: C.J. Thomason (Jake), Stephen Lang (Tony Cobb), Daniel Hugh Kelly (Gillespie), Michelle Pierce (Olivia), Corbin Bleu (Catfish), Charles S. Dutton (Detective Margolis), James Minor III (Cory Cobb), Andy Favreau (Kevin)

Anyone that is familiar with the short story “The Monkey’s Paw” knows where the premise of this flick from Chiller Films is headed. It’s a pretty respectable premise though. Horror has always had a cautionary tale basis at its deepest foundations, and this is a timeless morality story that has been given a contemporary spin. Not the first time it’s been done for sure, but if it’s done well, I can definitely roll with it. This version takes place in New Orleans, which happens to be one of my favorite locales for a horror film anyway, »

Be Careful What You Wish For: When Djinns Go Bad

22 October 2014 | Horror Asylum | See recent Horror Asylum news »

Djinn are quite the formidable creatures. They truly are the one supernatural beings that can be depicted as good, bad or evil. Based on Islamic mythology Djinn, Jinn or Genies can just as easily give with one hand and take away with the other. So be careful what you wish for! Long gone are the days of Barbara Eden in classic fantasy sitcom 'I Dream of Jeannie' or the zany shenanigans of the famous blue genie, voiced by the late Robin Williams, that featured in Disney's 1992 'Aladdin'. Over the past 15 years the horror genre has been busy making sure audiences know of the more malevolent side of these spiritual creatures. »

19 September 2014 9:10 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

If you were a child or a parent during the early '90s, there's a good chance that ABC's Tgif lineup graced your TV set. Remember Tgif? A two-hour block of family-friendly comedies that tried to make it seem fun staying in on Friday nights? It officially debuted 25 years ago this month - on Sept. 22, 1989, with a lineup that included Perfect Strangers, Family Matters, Full House and Just the Ten of Us. And notably, it debuted four years before that other landmark '90s TV block, Must See TV. The early promos are a trip, as they're both introducing the »

Mindy Newell: I Owe It All To Television

15 September 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

“When television is good, nothing – not the theater, not the magazines or newspapers – nothing is better. But when television is bad, nothing is worse. I invite each of you to sit down in front of your own television set when your station goes on the air and stay there, for a day, without a book, without a magazine, without a newspaper, without a profit and loss sheet or a rating book to distract you. Keep your eyes glued to that set until the station signs off. I can assure you that what you will observe is a vast wasteland. You will see a procession of game shows, formula comedies about totally unbelievable families, blood and thunder, mayhem, violence, sadism, murder, western bad men, western good men, private eyes, gangsters, more violence, and cartoons. And endlessly commercials – many screaming, cajoling, and offending. And most of all, boredom. True, you’ll see »

Richard Kiel 1939-2014

10 September 2014 11:55 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The cinematic world may forever know him as an imposing, steel cap-toothed villain, but in real life he was a man who embraced his cult status and enjoyed a healthy career as a character actor. Richard Kiel, James Bond’s Jaws, has died at the age of 74.Kiel was born in Detroit, and years before his time spent menacing Roger Moore with fake gnashers, the acting bug bit. He kicked off his career on the stage, supplementing his income by working as a nightclub bouncer and as a maths instructor at night school in Burbank.In the early years of his career, Kiel worked in a swathe of popular TV series, making his debut in 1960s Western series Klondike.

Ohio State University Marching Band's TV Tribute Is Extraordinary—Watch Now!

8 September 2014 8:34 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Stop everything and watch the Ohio State University marching band's incredible tribute to the thing we love most in the world: television. It's sure to make you smile. The band zips through theme songs, starting with Dragnet and running the gambit from Batman (the Adam West series) to Game of Thrones. While it's cool to hear the songs done by a live band, you need to see the impressive shapes the band makes while marching and playing. They even go from the M*A*S*H helicopter to I Dream of Jeannie's bottle in a seamless transition! It's crazy awesome. Not smiling yet? Well, the band even nails The Office's typeface for the logo! And then The Brady Bunch happens and people run out »

Is Television 'A Woman's Medium'?

5 September 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

After winning two Emmys last week, Allison Janney said something that should be considered a truism but isn't. Explaining her successful return to TV after a sojourn in movies, the 54-year-old told Variety, "Television is a woman's medium."

Since "The West Wing" went off the air eight years ago, Janney has landed a number of supporting character roles in movies, mostly mom parts. Back on TV, however, she won Emmys this year (her fifth and sixth) for stretching to play two very different parts: a woman trying to salvage a difficult marriage in the premium-cable drama "Masters of Sex," and a recovering alcoholic whose daughter and granddaughter have followed in her reckless footsteps on the network sitcom "Mom."

Janney certainly seems to be an example of how television is friendlier to 54-year-old actresses than film is. But is television really "a woman's medium"?

Actually, you could argue that television has »

Interview: Chicagoan Bill Daily, One of TV’s Favorite Sidekicks

12 August 2014 6:38 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Mention Bill Daily’s name and you might experience puzzlement. But mention Roger Healey of “I Dream of Jeannie” or Howard Borden of “The Bob Newhart Show” and there will be instant recognition for one of TV’s favorite supporting characters. Bill Daily also grew up and started his career in Chicago.

His family moved here in the late 1930’s, and Daily attended Lane Tech High School in the city. He worked his way up the show business ladder by doing stand-up and music for clubs in the area, attended the Goodman Theatre School and worked as a floor manager for a local TV station, Wmaq. It was through those connections that he met his future co-star Bob Newhart, who was beginning his stand-up career as well.

Briefs: Wentworth Miller Goes Into “Details,” Meet The New “Thor,” And Daniel Radcliffe’s “Horns”

Birthday shoutouts go to Taylor Kinney (above), who is 33, Travis Fimmel is 35, Scott Foley is 42, and Brigitte Nielsen is 51.

Wentworth Miller talks to Details about coming out last year: “I feel more fully expressed. After Prison Break, I came to grips with the fact that my public persona was in misalignment with how I actually felt. I was out to a handful of people in my twenties, and once I hit 30, I was out to family and friends. But professionally, I was feeding a fantasy. I created this air of “We don’t address that thing.”

Interview: We Dream of Barbara Eden at the ‘Hollywood Show’ Chicago

8 July 2014 9:35 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Next year will mark the 50th Anniversary of the seminal 1960s sitcom, “I Dream of Jeannie.” Unforgettable – for many reasons – was Barbara Eden, who portrayed a genie named Jeannie. Ms. Eden was at the “Hollywood Show” Chicago last year, and was interviewed by HollywoodChicago.com.

Eden was born Barbara Jean Morehead in Tucson, Arizona. After her family moved to the West Coast, Eden began singing, first in the church choir and eventually in night clubs. This led to acting and performance classes, including the City College of San Francisco and the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. After winning the title of Miss San Francisco, Eden moved to Los Angeles, and began a series of appearances on classic TV shows including “I Love Lucy,” “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson,” “Perry Mason,” “Gunsmoke,” “Father Knows Best” and “The Andy Griffith Show.”

Remembering the Best and Worst of ABC’s Tgif Lineup

27 June 2014 1:11 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In fall 1993, a coming-of-age comedy called “Boy Meets World” premiered on ABC’s “Tgif” Friday night lineup; 21 years later, its sequel series, “Girl Meets World,” is debuting on the Disney Channel with many of the original cast members reprising their roles for a new generation.

Few could have anticipated the enduring popularity of the family sitcom — which starred Ben Savage as Cornelius “Cory” Matthews and Danielle Fishel as his first love and eventual wife, Topanga Lawrence — but ABC’s Tgif block was responsible for a number of iconic comedies during its initial run between 1989 and 2000, many of which still live on in syndication today. And, as with all networks, the roster was also responsible for some spectacular trainwrecks, with concepts so surreal, you’d think a kid pitched them while on a sugar high.

Those Were The Days (of TV theme songs)

25 May 2014 2:04 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Like it or not, the television landscape has changed. Reality TV and its “stars” seem to be here to stay, which is bad news for nostalgia freaks like me, who’d rather watch repeats of old shows than spend half an hour with a real housewife, a top chef, or a Boo Boo of any kind. While the number of reality shows are on the increase, an integral part of TV viewing has quietly been disappearing; that simple melody that you waited to hear with anticipation once a week coming from your living room, aka a theme song.

If you’re under a certain age (like say, 25 or younger), you might not get my gripe. I can’t really blame you; most likely you’ve grown up with slim pickings as far as theme songs go, and by now watch everything online anyway, commercial and theme song free. But shocker: »
