Theatre Review: David Arquette’s ‘Sherlock Holmes’ Cheapens Drama With Campy, Unfunny Comedy

11 hours ago | | See recent news »

Chicago – Different isn’t bad and might be great, but you’d better have an irrefutable reason to change what was never broken. Campy being the only word to accurately convey this alternate-reality version of Sherlock Holmes with an original script, writer Greg Kramer and director Andrew Shaver try too hard to be different without ever figuring out why.

Play Rating: 2.0/5.0

This Thanksgiving, spend your time anywhere but with David Arquette’s “Sherlock Holmes” at the Oriental Theatre. Thankfully, the one-week limited engagement only runs in Chicago from Nov. 24 through Nov. 29, 2015 until it tours elsewhere.

Editorial: An In Depth Look At Why TV’s Scream Queens Matters by Leonel VHS

25 November 2015 2:34 PM, PST | | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Lately I’ve been reveling in the fact that horror has made a huge resurgence on the small screen within the last few years. Back when I was a youngster in the late eighties, horror had a small presence on television, but albeit in a different form. Most of what was on the air then were memorable anthology series ranging from the wonderful reincarnation of the beloved The Twilight Zone to Tales From the Darkside and Amazing Stories to series based on well-known horror franchises: Friday the 13th begat its own series and A Nightmare On Elm Street brought forth the ultra-cheesy and fun Freddy’s Nightmares. I love that there are quite a number of series now on the air to choose from. But unfortunately, the quality varies between them on a great scale. With some of them now having established loyal audiences and rabid cult followings, in their »

At the #Horror première by Anne-Katrin Titze

Lydia Hearst on Tara Subkoff at #Horror premiere: "She has such an incredibly beautiful vision." Photo: Anne-Katrin Titze

At the Museum of Modern Art première of Tara Subkoff's sharp-witted #Horror, Timothy Hutton spoke to me about the art (curated by Urs Fischer) and parenting, and Lydia Hearst made a Drew Barrymore out of Wes Craven's Scream comparison, as Chloë Sevigny, Balthazar Getty, Taryn Manning, Stella Schnabel, Annabelle Dexter-Jones, Natasha Lyonne, Sadie Seelert, Haley Murphy, Bridget McGarry, Blue Lindeberg, Mina Sundwall and Emma Adler walked the red carpet.

Wes Anderson favorite Waris Ahluwalia (The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Darjeeling Limited, The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou) confided to me that Rob Zombie's The Devil's Rejects and House Of 1000 Corpses are the two horror films he loves and at the Players Club after party confirmed he now has three.

Watch: Charlie Lyne’s Copycat, A Short Film About the Proto-Scream

18 November 2015 12:18 PM, PST | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

This short film by Charlie Lyne (whose zippy, highly enjoyable essay/compilation film about teen movies, Beyond Clueless, is still available on Netflix Instant) tells the story of Rolfe Kanofsky, a pioneer who maybe got scalped. Barely out of high school, Kanofsky made a meta-reflexive horror film, There’s Nothing Out There, that bears a suspicious relationship to Scream. Did Wes Craven’s son having seen it have anything to do with it? Whatever the case, Copycat is a fun watch; bonus points for making the whole thing plausibly seem as if it were being watched on a beaten-up VHS. »

Watch Everything Wrong With Scream In One Video

29 October 2015 9:32 PM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

In 1996, director Wes Craven introduced the world to a brand new horror classic in the shape of Scream. The movie is a post-modern delight, gleefully making fun of slasher tropes that had accumulated over the years... but it's hard to argue that it's a flawless movie. Need some proof? Give the video below a gander and open your eyes a little wider. CinemaSins has gotten into the Halloween spirit this week by launching a Scream-themed episode of their Everything Wrong With... series, and as you can see from the final count, there are some pretty big problems with the way that the film functions narratively. Truth be told, once you look back on the movie with a full understanding of Billy and Stu's plan and execution, the whole thing doesn't really make a whole ton of sense. The problems are present from the very beginning of the movie, as »

Best Comedy Horror Films

28 October 2015 3:33 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Coming this Halloween is the new film Scouts Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse. Part comedy, part horror, director Christopher Landon’s latest movie has Scouts saving the world from the Undead. Landon says audiences will be “screaming and laughing their heads off. This movie is an amusement park ride.”

What’s better than the mashup of comedy and horror to get you shrieking in fear! Just like a Reese’s cup – peanut butter and chocolate – the two just go together. Making scary themes into funny romps, while doing it cleverly, is a hard act to pull off. The films that have done it well have become part of the zeitgeist with fans of both genres.

Before you catch Scouts vs Zombies, check out our list of the funniest horror films.

10 highlights from Drew Barrymore's awesome 'Howard Stern' interview

28 October 2015 9:57 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Howard Stern has had a lot of guests in the studio this year that would have been all but unthinkable a few years ago: Madonna, Gwyneth Paltrow, Ellen DeGeneres...and now Drew Barrymore, who sat down with Howard on Tuesday to promote her new memoir "Wildflower," which chronicles her fascinating life as a beloved child actor-turned-down and out Hollywood pariah-turned-a-list box office superstar. I caught the interview yesterday evening and was glued to my earbuds. Here are 10 highlights from the in-depth chat (with relevant audio clips). 1. "E.T." wasn't the only Steven Spielberg movie she appeared in. "[Spielberg] didn't abandon me [after 'E.T.']. I was on 'The Color Purple' and 'Raiders of the Lost Ark' and, you know, I would get to get dressed up in costumes. I'm actually in some of those movies in the background. I'm not kidding." (Note: Drew was most likely referring to "Temple of Doom," since "Raiders" was shot »

24 hours of Halloween horror on Netflix, from Scream to Stake Land

27 October 2015 4:27 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Traditionally, Halloween is about covering yourself in fake blood and going to a party so that people can repeatedly ask you what you came as. When all you really want is a nice night in, right?

Hence this indispensable guide to 12 classic terrifying movies on Netflix. That's 24 hours of horror (give or take), so you can freak yourself out from sundown to sundown without ever having to leave the comfort of your sofa.

Although we strongly advise that you check behind that sofa first - and the curtains while you're at it - for the sake of your peace of mind.

1. The Omen (1976)

Arriving hot on the heels of The Exorcist, Richard Donner's The Omen solidified the notion that small children are terrifying and probably possessed by the Devil. The '70s horror is still an effective frightener that boasts moments to make you leap out of your seat. »

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.

120 Essential Horror Scenes Part 8: Reversals & Reveals

26 October 2015 10:09 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

It’s the moment you wait for the entire horror film. It’s not just a plot twist or a payoff but a trigger to your deepest emotions. You want to be shocked and sickened and saddened when the killer is revealed, the hero suddenly dies, or the mystery is solved. Most of all, you want your jaw to be on the floor. **Spoilers obviously ahead**


The Brood (1979)- Mommy knows best

David Cronenberg’s third horror film is his first truly great movie and also his first superbly acted film. The Brood’s ensemble is solid but Oliver Reed and Samantha Eggar stand out as maverick doctor Hal Raglan and his disturbed patient Nola Carveth. Nola’s estranged husband Frank (played by Art Hindle) teams up with Dr. Raglan in the film’s suspenseful climax. He confronts Nola while Raglan attempts to rescue Frank’s young daughter from a group of murderous deformed children. »

Post-Mortem: Breaking down our Ultimate Horror Movie Poll

HitFix's Ultimate Horror Movie Poll, which highlights the 100 greatest horror films of all time as voted on by over 100 genre filmmakers and experts, not only showcased the enduring power of No. 1 finisher "The Exorcist," it also cemented the status of the '70s and '80s as a Golden Age of horror (films released during those decades took up nearly half of available slots). The '70s and '80s, incidentally, saw the artistic rise and mainstream breakthroughs of both Wes Craven and David Cronenberg, horror icons who placed more films in the Top 100 than any other director (four titles each). Meanwhile, the list revealed one undeniably bleak statistic: only one movie in the Top 100 was directed by a woman.  For me, the most gratifying moment of our Ultimate Horror Poll came when compiling the data was finally over, and I could take a step back and fully appreciate, as a reader, »

200 Greatest Horror Films (120-111)

22 October 2015 10:57 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Special Mention: Clean, Shaven

Directed by Lodge H. Kerrigan

Screenplay by Lodge H. Kerrigan

1993, USA

Genre: Crime / Psychological Thriller

Lodge H. Kerrigan’s Clean, Shaven is not an easy film to watch. Kerrigan, who wrote, produced and directed this unsettling psychological thriller, traps us inside the mind of a madman for the entire viewing experience. Peter Winter (Peter Greene) appears to be a killer–even worse, a child killer–but not much about him is objectively clear, and we are never sure if what we are seeing is real or a product of his tormented imagination. The film heightens the tension by restricting its focus to Peter’s unsettling, confused, and angry view of the world. The most gruesome violence inflicted on Peter comes by his own hand. In the most unforgettable scene, Peter slowly mutilates his body in order to remove what he believes are a receiver in his »

‘Gridlocked’ is an unaplogetic flurry of bullets, beatdowns, and blood

21 October 2015 3:28 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »


Written by Rob Robol & Allan Ungar

Directed by Allan Ungar

Canada, 2015

In Gridlocked, Dominic Purcell plays David Hendrix, a Strategic Response Team (a type of swat team) leader who after taking a bullet in the line of duty is on forced leave from his squad. Hendrix spends his days single-handedly kicking down doors and laying the smack down on petty thugs while pining to rejoin his former unit. Enter Brody Walker (Cody Hackman), a Justin Bieber-esque movie star with a downward spiraling career and a penchant for indiscretions that leaves him facing jail time. Walker’s PR/Legal team cut a deal placing him in a community service program as Hendrix’s tag-a-long, and surprise, surprise, the two don’t get along. Just when Gridlocked looks to be ripping pages right out of the 48 Hrs. and Ride Along movie making handbooks, it provides one more swerve. Hendrix takes Brody to his former headquarters, »

Review: The Final Girls

18 October 2015 3:39 AM, PDT | | See recent Icons of Fright news »

With meta-horror, the roots go deep into the bloodline of the genre. While Scream is often given the sole credit of inventing the element of self-referential comedic horror that borders on parody, the honor actually belongs to Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein, an endearing classic in its own right. Other pre-Scream meta included Wes Craven’S New Nightmare, Waxwork, Fright Night and the criminally underrated, Popcorn. While Scream deserves its place in history for reviving the genre when it was fading into direct-to-video “z” grade fodder, it ironically became another reductive horror franchise by the time it reached the second sequel. Over a decade later, when Scream 4 was released (arguably the only sequel that the franchise needed) audiences weren’t so receptive. The world had changed. So it made sense when viewers were quick to instead praise gonzo-horror Cabin In The Woods. Whedon’s clever, yet heavily smarmy and »

The Things That Make Gamers Scream

16 October 2015 4:03 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Horror in video games is not the same as horror in books or movies. There’s a certain artistic realism to horror in games that makes players more immersed in the nightmare the developer creates. In movies or books, the audience is just that, a spectator looking from the outside in. Video games add a whole new dimension to immersing the player in the horror by having them participate in the terrors themselves. In this way, gaming can be considered the medium with the most potential to cater to a horror fanbase.

What are some of the ways in which developers can make the gaming experience truly horrifying? Games like Clocktower, Silent Hill and Resident Evil have kept a solid fanbase for decades and for good reason. They know how to immerse the player with not only compelling gameplay but the appropriate atmosphere to chill the spines of everyone who plays them. »
