30 Things You Didn’t Know About the 5 Exorcist Movies

11 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

This piece was originally published October 31, 2013. We are republishing it as part of our Horror Week festivities. The Exorcist is a classic. Not a horror classic, just a straight-up classic. And as a result, everyone knows the same pieces of trivia about its production (director William Friedkin would sometimes shoot off blanks on set to keep everyone on edge, he violently slapped one priest-actor in order to get a more emotionally raw performance, Regan’s vomit was made of pea soup and oatmeal) and reception. But there are so many more wonderful anecdotes about that film and its four sequels (or rather, two sequels and two prequels) to be had. We combed several director commentaries, making-of documentaries, and read several autobiographies to find the following tidbits. So read on. The power of Christ something something …1. No one involved in any of the movies wanted to make a horror flick. »

7 Movies with Undeniably Evil Children

16 October 2014 8:40 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

With adults, you have to put in a lot of effort to make them creepy – layering on makeup and blood and involving them in increasingly horrific acts to impact increasingly apathetic audiences. With children, however, you often need little more than a cherubic face juxtaposed with an evil act to make an impact. Mixing evil into childhood innocence is often the perfect horror concoction for movies, whether it’s a horror movie teasing at the fear of the unknown or a drama exploring the world of a truly terrible child. Of course, sometimes it’s nothing more than the result of really bad parenting. In the premiere of The Affair, Dominic West’s son fakes a suicide to get a rise out of his dad. But when West’s Noah quickly gets over his anger and shrugs off the stunt, it’s perfectly obvious why his kid is acting out – dad is an ineffectual parent. But »

William Friedkin Visits the Criterion Closet and has a Lot to Say

15 October 2014 8:22 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Whenever the Criterion Collection opens their "closet" doors to a filmmaker it's always fun to watch them scour the shelves, just to see what catches their eye and what they have to say and this latest on featuring William Friedkin (The Exorcist, Sorcerer) is one of the best yet. amz asin="B002U6DVQM" size="small"Friedkin admits to owning many of the movies in the closet and even notes Criterion's release of Fritz Lang's M, which includes an interview between Friedkin and Lang, but it's a lot of fun to see his excitement at the end of the video as he comes across Federico Fellini's 8 1/2 and says, "Surrounded by all of these riches, all of the great history of international film, this is the one for me."

New Behind the Scenes Footage from 'The Exorcist' is Shocking and Frightening

14 October 2014 12:48 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I'm of mixed feelings about this new bit of behind the scenes footage from William Friedkin's The Exorcist. First off, it's fascinating to see just how awesome the makeup effects were, combined with Linda Blair's performance. You also get an alternate look at Jason Miller's reaction to being shot in the face with pea soup and oatmeal during the vomit scene. All to a horrifying score. However, at the 3:11 you see a second instance Blair is thrown around the bed as she wears an apparatus on her back. Blair's back would be injured as a result of this apparatus and it's here you can see her crying in pain and holding her back once the jerking stops. I have no way of knowing if it was at this moment that she injured her back, but she is clearly in pain. yt id="aCT_FB7kNkg" width »

Female Horror Directors Get A Showcase With Anthology Film Xx

9 October 2014 5:33 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Magnet Releasing – the ‘genre arm’ of Magnolia Pictures – has announced the acquisition of its latest horror anthology, which will be produced by Xyz Films. Having seen huge success with The ABCs Of Death and V/H/S, among others, Magnet now turns its attention to Xx – an anthology made up of short films that have female leads and female directors. Now, if there’s one thing that draws out the anti-feminist crowd, it’s the subject of female representation in the horror film genre. The reason for their dramatic eye-rolling is fairly obvious at first glance – there are plenty of women in prominent roles onscreen in horror movies, so what’s the problem? Halloween, Scream, The Exorcist, The Conjuring, Paranormal Activity, Insidious, Mama, 2013’s Evil Dead, Drag Me To Hell, 2006′s The Hill Have Eyes – in horror, it seems, there are women everywhere you look. So, why does Magnet Releasing »

Exclusive Interview with Director Seth Grossman for ‘Inner Demons’

3 October 2014 9:08 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Reality television shows can take a wrong turn into horror especially when a demonic possession is involved.

From former reality TV producer Seth Grossman, “Inner Demons” follows an intervention-style reality show crew trying to film a sixteen-year-old girl fighting a drug addiction. However, she was suffering from something even more destructive—a demonic possession. The movie is an inquiry into the truth about her—with symptoms between the disturbing and scary intersection of insanity, addiction and true possession.

The film stars Lara Vosburgh and Morgan McClellan.

Latino-Review was granted an exclusive interview with Grossman to discuss the production of this horror film. We talked about the young actress, the worlds of addiction and demonic possession and even relating the behaviors of hyenas to demons.

Inner Demons” is playing in select theaters and available on VOD today.

Read the full interview below.
