Pinch-hitting: Parker’s Latest as Surprising As it is Unwieldy
With a series of continuously improving indie horror thrillers under his belt, filmmaker Zack Parker launches his most startling title yet with his fourth feature, Proxy. Opening with a scene of visceral brutality that’s as sure to get lodged uneasily in your subconscious as it is to grab your rapt attention, the film unfolds with eerie precision until a mid-point switcheroo that provides a tipping point for the film spilling from art-house worthy genre to ludicrous exercise that dwindles into ridiculousness. At times tasteless and potentially offensive (those that prize politically correct representations may find the course of events rather homophobic and undoubtedly misogynist even as Parker clues us in on the black comedy he’s going for), the film is also strikingly unpredictable, utilizing violence effectively.

London, Apr.13: Cher stunned audience at 'Dressed To Kill' tour with her barely-there outfit with nipple tassles.
The 'Dark Lady' singer told the Mirror that one has to remember that the last tour she did consisted of 350 dresses and she was old when she did that tour and that was the longest tour any woman ever did.
The 67-year-old singer asserted that touring was really difficult and lonely because the isolation is rough when one goes from one city to another but the show was the fun part.
Cher apparently wore six different outfits during her latest tour. (Ani) »

Arizona vice mayor praises Fred Phelps on Facebook with link to satirical Onion obituary
Are there any Tbl readers in England and Wales getting married this weekend?
Does Allison Argent on Teen Wolf deserve to join the rare ranks of independent female characters like Buffy? “It shouldn’t be groundbreaking for a female character in a supernatural romance to have the degree of agency that Allison was afforded. And yet, we’re so used to seeing characters like Allison defined in relation to the male lead. There was something truly transgressive about the way she surpassed her original role as love interest, eventually dumping Scott at the end of Season 2. By the time of her death, her past with Scott was nearly incidental.” Of course, at the bottom of the article, Buzzfeed tags it “More news about Tyler Posey” so maybe not.

It's over! Cher and Bob Mackie have ended their 42-year partnership, the singer tweeted Thursday. The iconic singer, 67, has been working with the designer, 73, since the beginning of her career. In the early '70s, with Mackie's assistance, Cher made history as the first woman to bare her midriff on TV. The good ol' days are over, it seems, as Mackie declined to dress Cher for her Dressed to Kill Tour, which kicks off March 22 in Phoenix, Ariz., and features special guests Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo. "Telling you Something That Has Broken My Heart," Cher tweeted. "The Man Who Made All My Costumes Since 1972 Decided He Couldnt Do My Last Tour." The diva continued, "No »
A comatose patient with telekinetic powers runs amok without leaving his bed at a mad doctor’s clinic in “Patrick: Evil Awakens.” This well-crafted remake of the 1978 Aussie cult item “Patrick” marks a steady move into scripted features for helmer Mark Hartley, whose impressive documentary “Not Quite Hollywood” chronicled the 1970s and ‘80s golden age of Aussie exploitation cinema. Rich in gothic trappings and sporting a terrific central performance by Sharni Vinson (“You’re Next”) as a nurse in Patrick’s sinister sights, the pic has some wobbly dialogue and doesn’t deliver full-blown terror, but should satisfy audiences hankering for old-school genre entertainment. Tepid B.O. during the film’s October 2013 Oz run doesn’t bode well for its limited U.S. theatrical bow on March 14; outlook is much brighter for same-day VOD release and homevid fortunes.

(Brian De Palma, 15, Arrow, 1974)
In 1974, after a decade making low-budget, semi-underground movies, Brian De Palma thought he was about to enter the big time when 20th Century Fox paid $2m for this wild satire on indulgent rock musicians and the corrupt industry that exploited them. Basically it's a transposition of The Phantom of the Opera to the modern pop world, where an evil impresario, Swan (the diminutive, baby-faced composer Paul Williams,, who also wrote the songs), steals a pretentious rock cantata from Winslow Leach, its naive author, and frames him on drugs charge.
After he's been disfigured by a record-pressing machine, Winslow returns to seek revenge by haunting Swan's theatre, the Paradise. The piece also draws on Goethe's Faust, Wilde's Dorian Gray and Edgar Allan Poe, and refers to movies ranging from Psycho (the shower scene is reprised using a plunger) and The Cabinet of Dr Caligari.

Bret Easton Ellis, who penned "The Canyons," is no stranger to psychological thriller territory, but his new short film "Are You Okay" is certainly a bit removed from his past work. Written by Ellis and directed by acclaimed music video directors Ben and Alex Brewer (collectively known as "Brewer"), the short film/music video features the new single "Are You Okay?" by Dum Dum Girls and follows a psychologically disturbed young woman played by singer/guitarist Dee Dee Palmer. In an interview with Vice's music channel Noisey, Palmer cited "Dressed to Kill" by Brian De Palma (referred to as "De Palmer") as an inspiration before the film turned into something more original. That's certainly true, but the video plays less like "Dressed to Kill" by the "American Psycho" scribe and more like "Dressed to Kill" as directed by Shane Carruth. The odd, atmospheric short is available in full below. »

Castle goes back to high school in the latest episode. Here's Laura's review...

6.15 Smells Like Teen Spirit
One of the many joys that we get out of watching or reading narratives is that of identifying with the characters. We see ourselves in the struggles of those whose tales we are enjoying and we take pleasure in their triumphs as though they are, in some small part, our own. Likewise, such identification also offers us a kind of reality check, reassuring us that our doubts, our weaknesses, our ways of being are, if not universal to the human condition, at least not unique. They reinforce to us that we are not really alone in the things that challenge us or even in the peculiarities we fear might make us outliers.
Which is why I’ve always found the “will they? won’t they? »

6.14 Dressed To Kill
This week’s episode was full of surprises, most of them lovely.
The mystery at the centre of the episode took advantage of the success of The Devil Wears Prada to bring us into the fashion world. Because many of us had seen the movie, the writers were able to spare us the explanation of why fashion matters (at least enough to take all the characters but Yumi seriously), and more importantly, they were able to use the aide-leaving-her-apartment-at-the-crack-of-dawn-to-get-her-boss-her-nitpicky-breakfast to communicate a great deal about not only the kind of woman Matilda King is, but to instantly illustrate precisely what the relationship to her subordinates was like—even to the point of making the terrified receptionist seem a touch redundant.
In the "Castle" episode "Dressed to Kill," Detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) has a true bridal fantasy moment: She tries on a couture wedding dress. Later, the owner of the dress gives it to the engaged woman as a gift.
Castle and Beckett have set a spring wedding date, so this may indeed be Beckett's wedding dress. The question now becomes: Is the dress amazing or not worthy of its wearer?
To the dress' credit, it works on Beckett. She is built like a model and this is the kind of dress that suits such a woman. Also, the silvery details all over the main part of the dress are incredible.
Then there's that tulle skirt. While some might like the effect, it's not exactly in harmony with the rest of the ensemble. But is that a forgivable offense? If it is, this might be a great dress. If not ... maybe not. »
Castle and Beckett uncover some hot fashions and warm up some cold feet (sorry, couldn’t resist). When our duo meets the world of the Devil Meets Prada, we bring back some of Beckett’s backstory and getting a free wedding dress out of it! The assistant to the hottest high fashion magazine owner is found murdered [&hellip

[This is a review of Castle Season 6, Episode 14. There will be Spoilers.]
Casual Castle fans who tuned in last Monday may have been a bit put off by the repeat that was aired in lieu of saving “Dressed to Kill” for Sweeps week tonight. And that might very well have been a good move, because not only does the episode live up to the buzz, but it looks like Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Beckett (Stana Katic) could be heading down the aisle as early as this Spring!
But before we talk about what everyone will be talking about for the next two weeks, let’s stop to acknowledge that while this case wasn’t as pulse-pounding as some of ...

Have you guys all seen The Devil Wears Prada? I hope so, since I'm about to reference it a lot. That's because this week's episode of Castle, "Dressed to Kill," outright copies and/or describes scenes from the actual movie several times. Careless coat tossing? Check. Feuding assistants? Check. General disregard for the fact that one's employees have lives and a base level of individuality? Check and mate. All that's missing is Meryl Streep. Although to be fair, everything could use a little Meryl Streep. »
Murder seems just about right when "Castle" dives into the world of high fashion in "Dressed to Kill." And the show has the perfect dragon-lady magazine editor in guest star Frances Fisher. As Matilda King, Fisher is cool, calm and deadly.
It's just a good thing she likes Beckett.
Zap2it spoke with Fisher (a veteran actress who will soon be starring in "Resurrection" on ABC) about the role. Let's just say it sounds amazing.
Zap2it: Who is your "Castle" character?
Fisher: Matilda King is a fashion editor for a very successful fashion magazine. Her assistant has been killed, so that's why the team has come in and asks her question. And the story unfolds from there. It's a very well-written script! I just saw a rough of it, and I just love how it's put together.
What exactly is the relationship between King and Beckett?
