‘Into the Badlands’ Ratings: AMC Drama Opens Strong Sunday

17 November 2015 9:14 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

AMC’s new post-apocalyptic martial arts series “Into the Badlands” opened very well Sunday night behind “The Walking Dead,” delivering as many same-night young adults as the fall’s top broadcast premieres, “Supergirl” and “Blindspot.” It’s the third huge premiere of the calendar year for AMC, which also launched “Better Call Saul” and “Fear the Walking Dead” to big numbers behind the megahit zombie drama.

According to Nielsen “live plus same-day” estimates, “Into the Badlands” averaged a 3.15 rating in adults 18-49 and 6.4 million viewers overall in the 10 o’clock hour Sunday, making it AMC’s highest-rated fall premiere to date. It retained nearly half the demo lead-in from “The Walking Dead” (6.5 in 18-49, 8.3 million viewers overall), which was up about 5% week to week in both categories.

The network has set a very high ratings bar with its two prior drama launches behind “The Walking Dead” — both of which were »

Anthony Horowitz webchat – post your questions now

9 November 2015 6:06 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The writer was online to answer questions about James Bond, Sherlock Holmes, Foyle’s War and whether he is ever mistaken for David Walliams (he’s not)

2.06pm GMT

And finally, philipphilip99 asks:

Have you ever given up on a novel? If so, why?

Great last question. Generally I don't start a book until I know everything about it, including the fact that it's probably worth writing. Frankly, life's too short to write ten or twenty thousand words and then throw them away. I'm currently writing a new novel, Magpie Murders, and I'm 90,000 words in. In fact, I'm off now to write the next chapter (my biggest fear being that I'll be run over by a bus on the way home).

Can I thank everyone for these great questions - it's been a real pleasure doing this with the Guardian. And thanks also to the fastest typist on the planet »

For Halloween: Orphan

31 October 2015 12:16 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Halloween doesn’t have to be over once the last trick-or-treater has crept back into the shadows of the night. You may still be possessed by the spirit of the holiday and in desperate need of some real scares. In an effort to address that need and help you find a choice that goes beyond the usual iconography of the season, I’ve picked three titles that may not immediately jump to mind when it comes to autumn-tinged chills and terror. They are not self-consciously seasonal choices, like John Carpenter’s Halloween or Michael Dougherty’s 2007 anthology Trick ‘R Treat, both excellent choices for cinematic fear on the pumpkin circuit. Two of them rely more on mood, creeping dread, an insinuating style and, dare I say, even a poetic approach to storytelling than the usual Samhain-appropriate fare. And one has an inexplicably bad reputation in the halls of conventional wisdom, »

Stephen King Week: Scott Looks Back at The Dead Zone

29 October 2015 5:34 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

This was not my first trip down Stephen King Lane. Having seen, by this point in 1983, Carrie, ‘Salem’s Lot, and The Shining, and terrified by some (sorry, Jack, you were a dull boy to me), I eagerly awaited the next screen adaptation from his ever expanding library. At this point I was just starting to delve into his novels, but The Dead Zone had not come across my radar. With little idea what the film was about, I went in cold and staggered out of the theater, stunned by what I had just witnessed. It stands as my favorite King adaptation for its ability to touch me in a way few horror films have been able to do.

The Dead Zone tells the tale of Johnny Smith, a schoolteacher who falls into a five year coma after a horrific car crash. When he awakens, he has the power of second sight, »

Cronenberg’s The Brood

26 October 2015 6:06 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

David Cronenberg swaps his  venereal ick-monsters for Samantha Eggar's mater furiosa,  an annihilating female who commits her killings as would the villain of a Greek tragedy -- through her offspring. Oliver Reed is the new-age guru of 'Psychoplasmics,' who teaches Eggar to direct her rage in an utterly unique way. The disturbing concept sounds less preposterous when one finds out it was written in response to a brutal divorce experience. Hell hath no fury. The Brood Blu-ray The Criterion Collection 777 1979 / Color / 1:78 widescreen / 92 min. / available through The Criterion Collection / Street Date October 13, 2015 / 39.95 Starring Oliver Reed, Samantha Eggar, Art Hindle, Henry Beckman, Nuala Fitzgerald, Cindy Hinds, Susan Hogan, Gary McKeehan, Michael Magee, Robert Silverman, Felix Silla. Cinematography Mark Irwin Film Editor Alan Collins Original Music Howard Shore Special Makeup Jack Young, Dennis Pike Art Direction Carol Spier Produced by Claude Héroux Written and Directed by David Cronenberg

Stephen King Week: Patrick Looks Back at Pet Sematary

26 October 2015 5:17 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Though I’ve loved horror movies since as far back as I can literally remember, it’s never been because I find them all that scary. There are plenty of reasons why I love the genre more than any other, but being scared isn’t one of them. It’s the rare horror film that can really terrify me. The 1989 Stephen King adaptation, Pet Sematary, is one such film. And it’s all Zelda’s fault.

Ironically, the scariest aspect of Pet Sematary is only tangentially related to the actual plot. The 1983 novel (and subsequent film adaptation) is about a Chicago family that relocates to a small New England town and has their lives destroyed when their youngest son, Gage, is hit by a car and killed. Things are made worse when the father, Louis Creed, buries Gage in the magical cemetery nearby—an ancient Indian burial ground with the »

Videodrome: how Cronenberg subverts the noir thriller genre

31 July 2015 3:12 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

David Cronenberg's Videodrome isn't just a classic sci-fi horror, but also a brilliant noir thriller. Ryan explains why...

Everything in Max Renn’s life is beginning to pulsate. First the Betamax videotape sent to him by one Bianca O’Blivion, which seems to breathe in his hand as he removes it from its beige packaging. Then Max’s television, squatting in the corner of his apartment, appears take on a life of its own: veins twitching, the screen bulging to the sound of a woman’s voice: “Come to me, Max. Come to me...”

David Cronenberg’s Videodrome, released in 1982, is loaded with violent and startling imagery like this. Like Apocalypse Now, its very narrative seems to disintegrate as its morally suspect protagonist Max Renn (James Woods) embarks on a journey into his own heart of darkness: a fascination with the origins of a video signal soon leads him to a world of corruption, »

Directors' Trademarks: David Cronenberg

28 July 2015 6:16 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

About once a month, Cinelinx will chose one director for an in-depth examination of the “signatures” that they leave behind in their work. This week, we’re examining the trademark style and calling signs of David Cronenberg as director.

Cronenberg first became interested in film during college, where he self-taught himself the art before establishing a co-op to produce films. His first feature length films were art-house movies, Stereo (1969) and Crimes of the Future (1970). Shivers (1975) was his breakthrough. That film received a lot of attention because although people were talking about it, they were divided in regards to its vulgarity, especially considering the fact that it was funded by the Canadian government. Still, it was the most profitable film funded by the Canadian government up to that point. His follow up was Rancid (1977) which was commercially successful. His next movie took a break from body horror to explore his love of cars and racing. »

Why 1980 Was the Best Year in Movie History

27 April 2015 12:06 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

All week long our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century.  Click here for a complete list of our essays. How to decide in the grand scheme of things which film year stands above all others?  History gives us no clear methodology to unravel this thorny but extremely important question. Is it the year with the highest average score of movies?  So a year that averages out to a B + might be the winner over a field strewn with B’s, despite a few A +’s. Or do a few masterpieces lift up a year so far that whatever else happened beyond those three or four films is of no consequence? Both measures are worthy, and the winner by either of those would certainly be a year not to be sneezed at. But I contend the only true measure of a year’s »

The Sentinel (1977) Blu-ray Announced by Scream Factory

3 April 2015 2:03 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

You can't choose your neighbors in an apartment complex, and sometimes you get stuck next to a noisy, mean-spirited soul who makes you want to look in the classified ads before you even finish unpacking. Alison Parker has some rowdy neighbors around her new Brooklyn apartment, but what disturbs her the most is that nobody else lives on her floor. And that's only one of many creepy elements to be found in 1977's The Sentinel, and fans of the cult classic fright film should be excited to hear that Scream Factory has announced they will release The Sentinel on Blu-ray this summer.

From Scream Factory: "We are beyond thrilled today to report that we will be bringing the 1977 cult classic chiller The Sentinel to Blu-ray for the first time in the U.S. and Canada!

Planned release is for August. This often underrated, overlooked and shocking film from Director Michael Winner »

Stream the Soundtrack to Ryan Gosling’s Lost River Now!

30 March 2015 6:46 PM, PDT | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

If you haven’t watched the trailer to Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut called Lost River, correct that now. While early buzz has been mixed, I’m excited to see the film. I think it is also cool that Johnny Jewel scored the film, considering he was going to be the original composer for Refn’s Drive (See Symmetry: Themes for an Imaginary Film where some of Jewel’s ideas and possibly leftout compositions lay). Lost River looks dreamy, hypnotic and a nightmare of Americana.

From the Press Release

Performer/producer/visual artist and composer Johnny Jewel scores Warner Bros.’ thriller Lost River, opening in theaters April 10, 2015.

Directed and written by Ryan Gosling, Lost River is a dark fairy tale about love, family and the fight for survival in the face of danger starring Christina Hendricks, Eva Mendes, and Ben Mendelsohn. The multi-talented Jewel provides a grainy analog synth score »
