One of the many things I got into during my time here at Shock was helping program a some films, first at the New Beverly then at The Cinefamily. Even though I'm moving on into a new chapter of my career, I still want to help the fellas at Friday Night Frights from time to time. We've teamed up on titles like The People Under the Stairs, Critters 2, Night of the Demons and more...and we've found our next venture:

David Twohy's career first took off thanks to his writing, with his name on the screenplay credits for the likes of The Fugitive, Waterworld, Critters 2, Warlock and, er, G.I. Jane. His directorial breakthrough, however, came at his third attempt, Having steered films such as Disaster In Time and The Arrival (which itself isn't too bad), it was Pitch Black where everything clicked. It remains the best film he's directed to date (although we have a soft spot for A Perfect Getaway, which we talked about when chatting about whether star names ruin modern thrillers, here).
Today on Trailers from Hell, Jesus Trevino takes on the 2000 science fiction thriller "Pitch Black," starring Vin Diesel. Director David Twohy's modestly budgeted science-fiction thriller was a surprise hit in 2000. Starring Vin Diesel as the space-age anti-hero Richard Riddick, the film grossed over 53 million leading to a 2004 sequel, "The Chronicles of Riddick." Twohy (screenwriter for 1998's "The Fugitive" and Tfh guru Mick Garris' "Critters 2") revisited the character three more times in "Dark Fury", "Riddick: Blindsided" and 2013's "Riddick." »

There may be more Christmas movies than movies set in Canada, and pretty much every horror flick counts as a Halloween flick. Even New Year's Eve has dozens of great movies centered around it, but when it comes to Easter, there's practically nothing. In fact, to the undiscerning eye, it may look like it's easier to pick a movie for Flag Day than it is for Easter—c'mon Hollywood, even Groundhog's Day has, well, Groundhog's Day.
Despite the paucity of obvious candidates, though, there are in fact quite a few good movies for Easter viewing, even for those of us who aren't religious (and if you are, then you don't need us to remind of of staples like The Greatest Story Ever Told or The Last Temptation of Christ). Here's our recommendation for Easter-themed flicks to enjoy that do more to celebrate (or, in many cases, lampoon) the holiday than just featuring a rabbit. »
