Available today via various Video On Demand platforms, Banshee Chapter is a thriller that looks to be rich in atmosphere, as suggested by an exclusive clip that we are happy to premiere. In the clip, Ted Levine gives a little speech to Katia Winter, the camera hovering around as he holds court. For more context, here's the official synopsis: On the trail of a missing friend (Michael McMillian) who had been experimenting with mind-altering drugs, a young journalist (Katia Winter) - aided by a rogue counter-culture writer (Ted Levine, The Silence of The Lambs) -- finds herself drawn into the dangerous world of top-secret government chemical research and the mystery of a disturbing radio signal of unknown origin. A fast-paced thriller blending fact and fiction,...

Nearly a decade after “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King” pulled off one of the biggest Oscar-night sweeps of all time, it seems almost unthinkable that it could have played out any other way. But in the days leading up to that year’s ceremony, there were whispers around town that Peter Jackson’s trilogy-capping epic couldn’t possibly win best picture, because it was (gasp!) a fantasy film — a genre the Academy had never once seen fit to honor in its 75-year existence.
Fortunately, rules are made to be broken, and 10 years on from that milestone, the Academy’s alleged prejudice against fantasy/sci-fi movies, suspense thrillers and other strands of popular storytelling seems largely a thing of the past. That’s potentially good news for some of this year’s popular prestige entries, including pictures as different as “Prisoners,” “Lone Survivor,” “Captain Phillips” and »

Amazon's week long deals for 2013 Black Friday and Cyber Monday continue today, Wednesday, November 27, with a new schedule of DVDs and Blu-rays going on sale today and they are starting early. The deals throughout the day begin just after midnight today and there are a few titles worthy of your attention. If I had to select one title from the batch of deals going live today it would certainly be the Planet of the Apes Blu-ray collection, beyond that the Schindler's List Blu-ray is worth considering and, if you're looking for a nice little quadruple feature you can't really go wrong with picking up the Atonement, Pride & Prejudice, Jane Eyre and Elizabeth bundle, the price isn't yet available, but I have to assume it won't break the bank. Finally, that Best of Warner Bros. Romance Collection at 12:20 Pm might be worth a look as it includes some greats such »

Paul Risker on Katniss Everdeen and the dystopian sci-fi role model....
Woman, says Caroline Williams, has been a “prize, there to be defeated, destroyed or possessed.” Regardless a number of female protagonists have provided a strong representation of femininity, from the inaugural “Final Girl” Jamie Lee Curtis, Alien’s Ellen Ripley, The Silence of the Lambs' Clarice Starling, Terminator’s Sarah Connor to Pollyanna
McIntosh’s The Woman.
From the perspective of the narrative’s antagonists all of these women were a “prize, there to be defeated, destroyed or possessed.” In spite of this each has symbolised feminine strength, and served as cinematic role models; celebrated and reviled in equal measure. The same is true of cinema’s latest feminine role model - The Hunger Games’ Katniss Everdeen, who proceeds to contribute to this heritage of feminine strength - celebrated by the films young audience, male and female, and »

The Vivien Leigh Anniversary Collection

“The Vivien Leigh Anniversary Collection”
Another Wtw, another Cohen Media Group release. Seriously, the good folks at Cohen have been doing an amazing job of finding relatively obscure classics and recent foreign films and polishing them like they’re beloved worldwide. They’re rivaling Criterion and Scream Factory as studios for which every release truly matters. Their latest is a collection of four early films from the legendary Vivien Leigh, an actress best-known for “Gone with the Wind” and a true Hollywood icon. »

As an actor of such wide renown, Jim Carrey’s experiences in real life couldn’t be more different from his on-screen persona. A man who sadly suffers with depression is the same person constantly typecast as the wacky, rubbery extrovert that we have all become used to seeing. A more ambiguous figure there has never been.
His private life has remained largely confidential, only reinforcing the notion that his on-screen alter ego is what we associate with the name Jim Carrey. With this, several of his characters have been eccentric, unpredictable and generally over the top (in a good way, for a bit at least). This leads us to the question, what if they were real?
These obviously peculiar people are supposed to be at the very end of the annoying spectrum, despite at first being funny, as that is the point of the character. There are as a »

As Bruce Campbell proved to us all last week when he debunked the previous week’s announcement that Army of Darkness 2 was on its way, news of impending horror sequels should probably always be taken with a grain of salt. Countless sequels have been announced over the years, only to drop off the face of the earth shortly thereafter. It’s just the nature of the game, in a fickle business like the movie-making one.
Back in August we took a look at ten of those sequels that we’re still waiting to see, and today I’ve got ten more for ya. They were all planned, they were all announced, but none of them ever actually happened!
28 Months Later
A few months before the 2007 DVD release of 28 Days Later’s sequel 28 Weeks Later, the now defunct company Fox Atomic teased a third film, implying that the future of the »

The deities of Mount Olympus descend to the streets of New York City, where they wreak havoc on mortals and much worse on the audience, in Marc Turtletaub’s myth-inspired comedy, Gods Behaving Badly. Rounding up a cast of stars -- many who had their heyday two decades ago -- this outdated, unfunny satire feels like an extended SNL sketch from the early ‘90’s, and one that probably would have been tossed into the wastepaper basket. Some bankable names and a mildly clever idea should send these immortals straight to VOD, with a small courtesy release in select cities.
Based on the book by Marie Phillips, the concept is simple: The Greek gods are alive and well, and currently living in a Manhattan townhouse, where they engage in endless petty »

To commemorate twenty-five years of Cemetery Dance magazine, they’ll be releasing a new book of short stories. Titled Turn Down the Lights, the book will feature new original stories from Clive Barker, Stephen King, Peter Straub, and more:
“It was December 1988: George Bush had just defeated Michael Dukakis in the Presidential Election. Pitcher Orel Hershiser and the Los Angeles Dodgers had beaten the Oakland A’s in five games to win the World Series. People were waiting in line at movie theaters to watch Tom Cruise and Dustin Hoffman in Rain Man. Tom Clancy’s The Cardinal of the Kremlin and Anne Rice’s The Queen of the Damnedwere atop the bestseller lists. The most acclaimed genre books of the year were Thomas Harris’s The Silence of the Lambs and Peter Straub’s Koko.
And twenty-two year old college student Richard Chizmar had just published the premiere »
