Trailer for Bang Bang Baby starring Jane Levy and Justin Chatwin

18 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

 

In this current culture of major big budget cinematic events, I find myself searching for more subversive experiences. Smaller films that take bigger risks and often payoff with bigger rewards. Movies like Snowpiercer and Life After Beth come to mind. As geek culture becomes the center of the entertainment universe, independent filmmakers can make more genre-friendly small budget films capable of playing with our favorite conventions. Bang Bang Baby seems to fit that bill. A sci-fi musical rooted in the classic drive-in scary movies of the 1960′s.

From IMDb:

A small town teenager in the 1960s believes her dreams of becoming a famous singer will come true when her rock star idol gets stranded in town. But a leak in a nearby chemical plant that is believed to be causing mass mutations threatens to turn her dream into a nightmare.

The film screens this month at the Toronto Film Festival »

Review: 'The Boxtrolls' delights with a witty script and superb stop motion animation

30 August 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Venice - If you liked "The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists!," the "Wallace & Gromit" films, anything by Monty Python or just funny, witty movies in general, make sure you catch Graham Annable and Anthony Stacchi's "The Boxtrolls." Based on the book "Here Be Monsters" by Alan Snow, I can't remember the last time I saw a family animation so visually rich, tightly scripted and charmingly performed which was also built on a sound and progressive message. It's unlikely to become a cultural juggernaut on the level of something like "Frozen," but I think it is as enjoyable. The set up has the magical feel of a traditional fairytale blended with the weirder sensibility of a revisionist fable along the lines of "Roald Dahl's Revolting Rhymes." In a city where fancy cheeses are prized by the upper classes as the epitome of fine living, the middle classes live in fear of The Boxtrolls, »

Here’s the New Trailer for the Sci-Fi Musical Bang Bang Baby Starring Jane Levy

29 August 2014 5:49 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Bang Bang Baby, developed by Jeffrey St. Jules in the Cannes Film Festival’s Cinéfondation, is an otherworldly musical about Stepphy (Jane Levy), who is trapped in the sleepy 1960′s town of Lonely Arms taking care of her alcoholic father (Peter Stormare).  Stepphy dreams of escaping to a better life on the stage and screen, and when rock star Bobby Shore’s (Justin Chatwin) car breaks down in Lonely Arms, it seems her impossible dream might actually be coming true. But when Fabian (David Reale), the town creep, tells Stepphy that the local chemical factory is leaking dangerous purple fumes that can cause human mutations, Stepphy becomes obsessed with hiding these dark secrets from Bobby until they can escape together and make all of her fantasies a reality.

This unique and stylized film stars Jane Levy (Evil Dead, Suburgatory) in a defining turn as Stepphy, a small town girl who »

Tolman won’t return for the second season, for reasons we’ll explain below. But that doesn’t mean that the […]

2014 Emmy Award Winners Dominated by 'Breaking Bad'

26 August 2014 7:33 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Last night the 2014 Emmy Award winners were announced with "Breaking Bad" taking home top honors with five wings including Outstanding Drama Series, followed by "Modern Family" with three wins including Outstanding Comedy Series. FX programs "American Horror Story: Coven" and "Fargo" each took home two awards including an Outstanding Miniseries win for "Fargo". Meanwhile, new shows such as "Orange is the New Black" and "Silicon Valley" went home empty handed and for all the fanfare it received in its first season, including 12 Emmy nominations, "True Detective" only took home one win, that being for director Cary Joji Fukunaga". Personally, I don't give a lick about the Emmys, it's right there with the Grammys in terms of worthless awards shows for me. It's a show wherein people must nominate themselves and while most award shows are no better, this one is down there near the bottom for me. So, with that said, »

Breaking Bad Tops True Detective at the 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards

26 August 2014 2:47 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Breaking Bad’s amazing final season always meant that it was a likely winner come awards season. However, the debut of the critically acclaimed True Detective earlier this year did leave many wondering whether it might rob the end to Walter White’s story of one final sweep of prizes at last night’s Emmy Awards.

As it turns out, Breaking Bad would end up being rewarded for those amazing final episodes, though True Detective did earn a very well deserved award for director Cary Joji Fukunaga (who helmed all eight instalments).

The UK was represented by Sherlock, and that too did exceptionally well, walking away with Emmys for Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman and writer Steven Moffat. Looking at the results, it’s hard to imagine anyone being too upset with the results, though many Game of Thrones fans won’t be happy to see that it was again snubbed. »

American Horror Story: Coven's Jessica Lange and Kathy Bates Take Home Emmys!

25 August 2014 9:16 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

The 2014 Prime Time Emmy Awards are in the books, and though most of Seth Meyers' jokes fell flatter than Olive Oyl's chest, there were two bright spots for horror fans!

Two of "American Horror Story: Coven's" leads - Jessica Lange and Kathy Bates - each took home Emmy gold for their work as Fiona Goode and Madame Delphine Lalaurie, respectively. Lange nabbed the award for Outstanding Lead Actress In A Miniseries Or A Movie and Bates nailed down the one for Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Miniseries Or A Movie.

"American Horror Story: Coven" certainly ended on a sour note, but there's no doubt that the witchy duo were the hottest thing going during every second that they had on screen. In her acceptance speech Bates seemed pretty pumped for the upcoming "American Horror Story: Freak Show" so here's hoping for good things!
