Great Job, Internet!: This Kubrick-Lynch mashup is the stuff of nightmares

19 hours ago | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Have you ever thought, “I wish The Shining was weirder, scarier, and more intense—and also had more synthesizers”? We can’t imagine many have, but in case your nightmares aren’t visceral enough, a video from Richard Vezina envisions what The Shining would look like had another auteur, David Lynch, directed it instead of Stanley Kubrick.

Blue Shining (Kubrick x Lynch) from Richard Vezina on Vimeo.

The video mashup “Blue Shining” overlays and inserts scenes and images from Wild At Heart, Blue Velvet, Lost Highway and more into the 1980 Kubrick classic. For example, Twin Peaks’ ubiquitous logging trucks roll by outside the office window as the violent history of the Overlook is explained to Jack Nicholson’s Jack Torrance, and Eraserhead’s Lady In The Radiator is doubled to replace the ghost twin girls at the end of one Danny Torrance’s rides through the hotel’s hallways ...

Interview: How Gore Verbinski and Dane DeHaan turned their nightmares into A Cure For Wellness

23 February 2017 2:45 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Dan Jolin chats with Gore Verbinski and Dane DeHaan about A Cure for Wellness

During the summer of 2015, while shooting A Cure for Wellness in Germany, Dane DeHaan went through what he describes as “my month of torture”. In the space of a few weeks, the then-29-year-old star of Chronicle and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was strapped down and subjected to drill-induced dental abuse; had a tube rammed down his throat; and was immersed in a huge, water-filled sensory-deprivation tank.

They call it ‘suffering for your art’, but DeHaan has taken it to a whole new level.

“The dentist scene was more or less shot in a day, but for me it was just a terrifying circumstance to be in,” he explains, a good year and a half later and now sitting very comfortably in a London hotel suite. “That was fast and psychologically demanding.” The tube-gagging sequence, meanwhile, »

Castle Rock: what is Stephen King's new TV show?

19 February 2017 10:42 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Dan Cooper Feb 20, 2017

A teaser for Stephen King and Jj Abrams' latest TV project snuck online over the weekend. What can we expect from Castle Rock?

There are some towns whose streets and byways you know almost as well as the back of your hand; you can picture them perfectly, whether it be in the calm stillness of a summer dawn or the frenzied onset of a coming storm. You’ve visited many times, perhaps over the span of several generations and watched with fascination as the passing of time left its mark. Avenues and roads stretch off in maddeningly unknowable directions, the alluring thrill of dark revelation lingering in each shadowed street.

Mark Cousins destroys his own film with an axe at Iffr

1 February 2017 10:00 PM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

British filmmaker’s unusual stunt made for one of the quirkier moments of Iffr 2017.

In one of the more unorthodox moments of the 2017 International Rotterdam Film Festival (Iffr), following a screening of his film Bigger Than The Shining, British filmmaker Mark Cousins literally axed the film’s Dcp (digital cinema package).

In full view of the audience in Rotterdam’s Pathe cinema, where the film was screened on Wednesday (Feb 1), Cousins destroyed the Dcp, with the intention being for it to never be shown again.

Originally commissioned for Iffr 2016 and world premiering there before also screening at the Edinburgh International Film Festival, the documentary is designed to be a provocative experiment exploring subjects including copyright, male rage, and was made by combining footage from Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 horror classic The Shining and Nicholas Ray’s 1956 melodrama Bigger Than Life.

Screen caught up with the filmmaker to ask about the unusual event.

Photo Gallery: ‘America’s Got Talent’ Star Aiden Sinclair’s ‘Illusions of the Passed’ Magic Show

Chicago – While vacationing in Colorado, an unusual twist of fate landed me before “America’s Got Talent” star Aiden Sinclair while staying at The Stanley Hotel. His one-man show, “Illusions of the Passed,” took place in the billiards room of the hotel where Stephen King’s “The Shining” was inspired. Here are photos from the unusual experience.

A grifter turned professional magician, Aiden spent 20 years evading federal agents. He eventually succumbed to the law and divulged his life of con schemes and aliases. After five years in prison, Aiden transformed his con skills into practicing the art of deception for entertainment.

'The Young Pope' Recap: Unholy Roman Emperor

29 January 2017 7:00 PM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

"Prepare the Sistine Chapel."

Move over, "Release the Kraken" – there's a new godlike command in town, and its word is law. (Jude Law, to be precise.) With this order, Pope Pius Xiii and The Young Pope alike begin their greatest triumph: an address to the Cardinals delivered in full papal regalia, towering tiara and all. The fact that the Holy Father gets his gear on in a full-fledged dress-up montage soundtracked by Lmfao's "Sexy and I Know It" doesn't undercut the totalitarian coming-out party that follows; if anything, it enhances it. »

Q&A: ‘Adult Babies’ creator Joanne Mitchell talks all things horror

20 January 2017 3:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Adult Babies gets an exclusive reveal at Horror Channel FrightFest Glasgow 2017, in anticipation of the event, actress / producer Joanne Mitchell – star of Before Dawn and Bait; and creator of Adult Babies – answers 10 scary questions…

When did your fascination for horror films begin?

I’ve been interested in horror since being a young kid. I liked to be frightened, whether it be reading a scary book, or watching one of the Hammer House of Horrors. But it wasn’t until my 30’s that I really became fascinated with the whole genre after making ‘Before Dawn’ and watching back to back movies at FrightFest!! The fans are so loyal and open minded and really know their stuff.

What was the first horror film you saw?

I’m pretty sure it was ‘The Thing’. If I remember rightly my brother and his mates had managed to get a copy and I snuck in! »

19 January 2017 2:15 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

A hard-working actor with over 100 screen credits to his name, actor Miguel Ferrer has sadly passed away at the age of 61.

Earlier today, Deadline reported the very sad news that Ferrer has passed away after a battle with cancer.

Viewers know him as Dr. Garret Macy in Crossing Jordan, Owen Granger in NCIS: Los Angeles, and FBI Agent Albert Rosenfield in Twin Peaks—a role he reprised in both Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me and the upcoming revival series on Showtime.

Ferrer was a familiar face to horror and sci-fi fans over the years, appearing in Star Trek III: The Search for Spock, RoboCop, DeepStar Six, The Guardian, Night Visions, and several episodes of Tales From the Crypt.

He also helped bring life to several Stephen King adaptations, »

10 Directors to Watch: David F. Sandberg Scores Horror Knockout With ‘Lights Out’

3 January 2017 9:46 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sandberg is living what he calls “every filmmaker’s dream.” That’s how he describes his rapid ascent from making “zero budget” shorts from home in his native Sweden, to sitting at the helm of back-to-back horror features for Warner Bros.

The first, “Lights Out,” grossed nearly $150 million on a budget of just $5 million last summer. It was born out of an eerie three-minute short Sandberg made starring his wife, Lotta Losten, for an online horror contest. The short went viral after horror fans started sharing it on Reddit, where it caught the eye of producer Lawrence Grey.

While Sandberg originally hoped that short could get him enough attention to make more shorts and possibly land a Swedish feature, Grey and “The Conjuring” maestro James Wan were so impressed with Sandberg’s concept, they brought in “Arrival” scribe Eric Heisserer to make it a feature for New Line.
