The Best Sitcoms That Need a Revival Now — IndieWire Critics Survey

2 May 2017 8:29 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: In light of the recent “Roseanne” revival news, which sitcom would you like to see a revival of? (Let’s assume this is feasible from a network, talent, production, etc. standpoint.)

Liz Shannon Miller (@lizlet), IndieWire

So many great sitcoms are personality driven, which makes it hard to remember great premises worth reviving. (And also, when I think about some of my ‘90s favorites, like “Step by Step” or “Friends,” it’s like… Oh, maybe there’s nothing new under the sun.)

But, beyond my eternal wish that someone would remake “Almost Human” as an adorable rom-com about Karl Urban and Robot Michael Ealy falling in »

Graphic Nature: Mike Saputo on Creating the Pet Sematary Vinyl Soundtrack Cover for Mondo

1 May 2017 5:12 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

From the prolific pen of Stephen King, 1989’s Pet Sematary is a profound, emotional, and at times malevolent depiction of a family on the path towards a downward spiral. Notorious for being the book that King thought was too scary to be published, Mary Lambert’s dark adaptation horrified audiences across the globe for its bleak and grief-riddled imagery.

To celebrate the film’s 25th anniversary in 2015, Mondo Records dug deep into the catacombs and resurrected Pet Sematary for a limited vinyl release. As well as remastering Elliot Goldenthal’s soundscapes, the label commissioned Chicago artist Mike Saputo for the artwork. With a fine selection of sharp-edged skills, Saputo brought to life a collection of melancholic and foreboding visuals to cloak the gloomy, caliginous score held within the wax.

In regards to how the Pet Sematary cover art came to fruition, Saputo explains, “Mondo and I have been working together »

Tribeca Film Review: ‘Psychopaths’

26 April 2017 7:34 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Devoid of characters or a story about which one might care, “Psychopaths” proves to be a fright-free pastiche without purpose — save, that is, for unimaginatively paying homage to a string of superior genre predecessors. As in his prior “Carnage Park,” writer-director Mickey Keating offers up a schizo nightmare that’s narratively splintered to pieces and rife with nods toward his favorite ’70s and ’80s horror movies. However, there’s so little substance or originality to this lurid, abstract affair that it comes off as simply a faded grindhouse collage. Even in the midnight-movie arena, its dull derivativeness will likely spell its doom.

An introductory video recording of death-row killer Starkweather (Larry Fessenden) ranting and raving about how his “children will inherit the Earth” sets the hysterical and nonsensical tone of “Psychopaths,” whose narrator (Jeff Daniel Phillips) informs us that Starkweather’s prophesy — namely, that his evil spirit will possess other »

Unearthed & Untold: The Path to Pet Sematary and Returning from the Grave: A Film Review

24 April 2017 2:04 PM, PDT | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

*full disclosure: an online screener of this film was provided by distributor Terror Films. This writer has worked on some online marketing for this title. Directors/writers: John Campopiano and Justin White. Interviewees: Denise Crosby, Dale Midkiff, Miko Hughes, Brad Greenquist, Carlene Hirsch. Unearthed & Untold: The Path to Pet Sematary is a documentary on the 1989, Mary Lambert produced film. Developed over five years, the documentary shows dedication and careful editing. Mostly told through interviews with cast and crew, this documentary offers a lot of behind-the-scenes trivia. It also delivers a cohesive breakdown on how the original film was developed. From set location scouting to character motivations, almost everything (in production) is covered. There is one thing missing though; there is no actual footage of the film, which is owned by Paramount Pictures. Still, did you know there were multiple endings shot for the film? This viewer did not, nor how Stephen King based. »

21 April 2017 11:17 AM, PDT | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

Directors John Campopiano and Justin White initially intended to photograph the sets, shown in Stephen King's Pet Sematary. Finding enough material, they spent five years developing their documentary, titled Unearthed and Untold: The Path to Pet Sematary. The film was initially released, through Video-on-demand, in early January. Now, Unearthed and Untold: The Path to Pet Sematary will be released on home entertainment formats in late 2017. Terror Films and Synapse Films will team-up for the second launch of the film. More details on the home entertainment debut of the film are hosted here. This critic has recently seen the film. Campopiano and White focus on interviews with cast and crew, to relate the difficulties of production. Maine was not a film producing locale, until Stephen King intervened. Also, the documentary looks at the challenges of make-up. One castmate underwent 20 plus hours of make-up effects, to play Zelda (Andrew Hubatsek). This was »

Practical-ly Perfect: Celebrating Pennywise and the Stephen King’S It Miniseries

5 April 2017 4:34 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

For this month’s Practical-ly Perfect column, I thought it was the perfect time to take a moment and pay tribute to Bart Mixon’s contributions to the 1990 miniseries adaptation of Stephen King’s It, which was directed by Tommy Lee Wallace (you can read my interview with him Here). When it debuted on ABC in November of 1990, it became a landmark moment for television, and a big part of that was the now-iconic villain Pennywise, portrayed by the legendary Tim Curry.

As we all get ready for Andy Muschietti’s new take on King’s classic novel, it’s only fitting that we celebrate Mixon’s bold and ambitious take on horror’s most infamous killer clown in the original It adaptation. Mixon discussed his approach to designing Pennywise, his experiences collaborating with Curry (who was one of three top choices Wallace had in mind to play the unforgettably »

Exclusive Interview: Special effects artist Dan Martin talks Free Fire

27 March 2017 5:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With new Ben Wheatley movie Free Fire on release this week, Sean Wilson chats to one of the director’s closest collaborators Dan Martin about the art of great practical effects…

Blasting onto screens in a hail of gunfire, mismatched accents and some choice 1970s costumes, Free Fire is the riotously entertaining new black comedy from Ben Wheatley, director of Kill List, Sightseers and High-Rise. Ahead of the movie’s release we caught up with veteran effects designer Dan Martin, a regular partner of Wheatley’s who has also worked on the likes of The Human Centipede, to talk about the nature of their collaboration and the secrets to a great, gory, crowd-pleasing practical effect.

So Dan, make-up artists and special effects technicians are some of the most important, albeit unseen, magicians at work in our favourite movies. As one yourself, how do you help pull an audience even further »

NYC Weekend Watch: ‘Wuthering Heights,’ Philippe Garrel, Best Picture Winners & More

23 February 2017 5:59 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Since any New York City cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm. If you have a chance to attend any of these, we’re of the mind that it’s time extremely well-spent.

Film Society of Lincoln Center

The many adaptations of Wuthering Heights — from Buñuel to Andrea Arnold to Rivette — are highlighted in a new series.

Metrograph

A restoration of Philippe Garrel’s Les Hautes Solitudes begins playing.

Films from Wilder, Scorsese, Minnelli, and Hitchcock play as part of a Best Picture series.

Stephen King, Jj Abrams Project ‘Castle Rock’ Coming to Hulu (Video)

17 February 2017 5:45 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

A mysterious new project, called “Castle Rock,” from Stephen King and Jj Abrams is coming to Hulu, if a mysterious new trailer is to be believed. King tweeted the link to the 60 second video, which references many of King’s novels, including “Pet Sematary,” The Shining,” Misery” and “The Shawshank Redemption,” before settling on the words “Castle Rock,” the fictional town in Maine. “A Hulu Original” closes out the teaser, and no other information is given. Hulu did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment. More to come… JJAbrams and I want to invite you to take a trip to Castle Rock. »

The Magic School Bus Is Coming Back!

4 January 2017 11:38 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

  Well, we can all thank Netflix aka The Pet Sematary again. Ms. Frizzle and the gang will make a return to television thanks to the streaming giant. The Magic Schoolbus 360 will deliver 26 half hour CGI episodes, which will air in the Fall of 201. And, there are celebrity cameos to look forward to. Don't worry, some original cast members signed on to return as well. It's hard to believe the original television show only aired for four seasons, back in 1994. 

  Can you stand the wait? Well, let's hope the show has more moments like the clip below... And, it could be pretty educational too. The reboot will be headed by 9 Story Media Group, Scholastic, and Netflix jointly. Someone get them to bring back The Life and Times of Tim (search YouTube).
