Julie Plec Remembers the Movie That Never Was

3 December 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Loyal viewers of “The Vampire Diaries” and “The Originals” know that Julie Plec — who’ll be making her directorial debut on “The Vampire Diaries” later this season — loves nothing more than a good love story. Back in 1998, the future showrunner was working as Wes Craven’s assistant when she and her college friend and neighbor Greg Berlanti came up with the idea for a romantic comedy that would land them a six-figure deal.

Do you remember seeing this story when it ran?

Oh, absolutely! I was so stunned, I sent the writer a thank-you note.

How did you come up with the idea?

I would come home from work, and I’d just sit in Greg’s apartment and eat Chinese food, and I would talk about boys and then he would talk about boys. One day he said, “I have the perfect idea for a movie, and it’s because of our friendship. »

’22 Jump Street’ Blu-ray Review

11 November 2014 7:05 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, Ice CubeJillian BellPeter Stormare, Amber Stevens, Nick Offerman, Wyatt Russell, The Lucas Brothers, Marc Evan Jackson, Rob Riggle | Written by Michael Bacall, Oren Uziel, Rodney Rothman | Directed by Phil Lord, Christopher Miller

When 21 Jump Street came out it had little expectations. A reboot of a heavily dated late 80’s television program that will be directed by people who never made a live-action film before?—surely it will fail. Not only did it not fail it was both a critical and financial smash hit. Directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller took the ridiculousness of the reboot and used it in their favor by making it an updated meta spoof on Hollywood’s need to reboot everything. Now the question becomes, can they do it again?

In short the answer to that question is a solid yes. 22 Jump Street keeps with the tradition of the first film, »

The Chicago Critics' Top 100 Horror (or Just Plain Creepy) Films in History

31 October 2014 3:20 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Scariest movies ever made: The top 100 horror films according to the Chicago Film Critics (photo: Janet Leigh, John Gavin and Vera Miles in Alfred Hitchcock's 'Psycho') I tend to ignore lists featuring the Top 100 Movies (or Top 10 Movies or Top 20 Movies, etc.), no matter the category or criteria, because these lists are almost invariably compiled by people who know little about films beyond mainstream Hollywood stuff released in the last decade or two. But the Chicago Film Critics Association's list of the 100 Scariest Movies Ever Made, which came out in October 2006, does include several oldies — e.g., James Whale's Frankenstein and The Bride of Frankenstein — in addition to, gasp, a handful of non-American horror films such as Dario Argento's Suspiria, Werner Herzog's Nosferatu the Vampyre, and F.W. Murnau's brilliant Dracula rip-off Nosferatu. (Check out the full list of the Chicago Film Critics' top 100 horror movies of all time. »

The Best (and Worst and Weirdest) Horror Movies on Netflix

30 October 2014 10:15 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Netflix Streaming can be overwhelming — so many options, yet so hard to actually find — and we here at Vulture have tried to make it easier for you with our weekly and monthly streaming video roundups. Now that Halloween is nigh, it seemed appropriate to weed through every single horror movie currently available to stream on Netflix and point out the good ones, the bad ones, the disturbing ones, and the just plain silly ones. Read on:the GOODEveryone’s going to have differing opinions on what movies are great, but I think we can all agree that the ones below are more likely to fall in the plus column than the minus. Scream and Scream 2: For many people under 30, these jokey yet scary Wes Craven deconstructions of the slasher film genre were the first real horror movies that they were allowed to see. The films still hold up, »

Wait a Minute... No Ghostface in Scream TV Show

21 October 2014 10:44 AM, PDT | Best-Horror-Movies.com | See recent Best-Horror-Movies.com news »

If The Weinstein Company opts to move forward with the series while omitting the presence of Ghostface theyll be all but shooting themselves in the feet. The Scream franchise isnt exactly on the upswing. Genre fans have shown waning interest in the franchise as it is (each film has seen gradual decline in numbers Scream earned 103 million Scream 2 101 million Scream 3 89 million Scream 4 38 million). To possibly pull the one familiar from the franchise could prove detrimental. »

Fox Moving Forward with Ryan Murphy’s Scream Queens TV Series

20 October 2014 2:46 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Students on a college campus are stalked by a malicious murderer: horror film fans have seen this setup in many films like Final Exam, Scream 2, and Urban Legend, but we’ve never seen Ryan Murphy’s take on this story setup. That will change by next year, though, as the American Horror Story co-creator is moving forward on a university-set horror-comedy series called Scream Queens for Fox.

Set for a fall 2015 premiere, the first season of Scream Queens will consist of 15 one hour-long episodes. Similar to the American Horror Story structure, Scream Queens will tell a different story in a new environment each season.

Press release via Yahoo: “Los Angeles (Reuters) – Fox has ordered anthology series “Scream Queens” from the creator of ‘Glee” and “American Horror Story,” the U.S. television network said on Monday, as broadcast TV takes a cue from a format largely successful on cable networks. »

Check out this week's best and most provocative options for streaming on the web. How many times have you seen "Fletch"? Add another hundred to it this month.   Netflix "Arrow", season 2 Catch up on the second season before the third premieres tonight. We can never do enough to tell Katie Cassidy we're sorry about that "Melrose Place" revamp.  "Jay Mohr: Funny for a Girl" One of the bright spots in the dreaded '94-'95 season of "SNL" was the appearance of Jay Mohr, whose salty, smirky humor is somehow more impish than Norm MacDonald's. Fun fact I often forget: He is married to Nikki Cox. "Raising Hope", season 4 Shhh, secret: We're running a list of the "50 Funniest Women of the Past 50 Years" feature next week.

Movie Moments: Proclamations of Love through the Medium of Song

21 August 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

God Help the Girl is a tale of love and despair through the medium of song and dance, starring Emily Brown and Olly Alexander. Written and directed by Belle & Sebastian’s Stuart Murdoch, the film in part follows Alexander’s bewitched James and his adoration of Eve (Browning,) a troubled, medicated songwriter.

To celebrate the film’s release we take a look at some of the best proclamations of love via the magical form of song in cinema.

Pretty in Pink: Try a Little Tenderness Dir. Howard Deutch, 1986

Admittedly this sequence is mimed, but mimed to Otis Redding and with such panache that Jon Cryer’s Duckie is easily forgiven. Besotted with his best friend and sadly not as bold with his feelings as he is with his sense of fashion, Duckie’s extravagant routine is as a means of impressing his audience; a bewildered Andie (Molly Ringwald)and the quietly impressed Iona. »

Why The Final Girl Is The Worst Thing For Women In Horror

30 July 2014 2:38 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Whenever I discuss the problems of female representation in horror films, I’m almost immediately bombarded with cries of, “But What About The Final Girl!?”  Ah, yes, the final girl.  By Carol J. Clover (Men, Women, & Chainsaws: Gender in the Modern Horror Film)’s definition, the final girl is described as “a trope in thriller and horror films (particularly slasher films) that specifically refers to the last woman or girl alive to confront the killer, ostensibly the one left to tell the story.”  Clover then goes on to dissect the character citing things like often having a unisex name (e.g., Laurie, Sidney, Teddy, Billie, Stretch, Georgie), that the female is masculinized through “phallic appropriation,” and that the character must be a female because audiences would reject abject terror if a man were to be under the same circumstances.  People are always quick to cite the final girl as the »

True Blood Recap: The Town That Feared Sundown

30 June 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Depending on your mental problems, everyone has a different flavor of horror. Is home invasion your horror of choice? What about boogeymen? Psycho-ex stalkers? Abominations of science? Demonic possession? Whatever you choose says a lot about your subconscious fears. Personally, I love broad daylight, nobody-is-safe horror. The kind where even if you're doing everything right, certain death looms around every corner. Think Dawn of the Dead or The Mist or Final Destination, or even the psychological daylight of Scream 2's cold open, when Jada Pinkett is murdered in plain sight of a crowded movie theater but nobody helps her. True Blood has embraced nearly every subgenre of horror over the years, but typically it reserves its scares for nighttime, when the monsters come out to, uh, mash. "I Found You" was different, though, since it was the rare True Blood episode that took place entirely in the daylight. And wow:nightmares. »

Al Pacino Retrospective - The Godfather Part II

22 February 2014 3:24 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Simon Columb continues our Al Pacino Retrospective with The Godfather Part II....

Is The Godfather Part II superior to The Godfather? In a lively discussion on sequels, film fanatic Randy Meeks (Jamie Kennedy) in Scream 2, argues how “sequels suck”. But, unlike Terminator 2: Judgement Day and Aliens, The Godfather Part II stumps him. It covers a greater space of time, tells a grander story and turns what was a family-centred, but nevertheless New York “Gangshter” story, into a personal drama set on an epic, ambitious scale.

Though the dialogue in The Godfather holds iconic and memorable lines, definitive scenes in The Godfather Part II show Michael Corleone’s true menace revealing itself. The Godfather portrays his sinister and deeply-calculated methods of management, but they are subtle and carefully-constructed. He recommends the hit on Solozzo and MacCluskey; he marries Kay (Diane Keaton) to maintain a strong family unit; he settles »

Hey Everyone! Thanks for coming back for Part Two of my 14 Favorite Horror Couples countdown.

Tarantino's Hateful 8 Screenplay Leak's Chosen Six?

23 January 2014 6:45 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Quentin TarantinoThe Hateful Eight’ screenplay leak Quentin Tarantino will no longer be making the Western The Hateful Eight. Why not? Well, Tarantino claims he sent out the film’s screenplay to a group of six people, one of whom allegedly showed it to his agent, who then showed it to other agents, who then began calling Tarantino’s agent Mike Simpson, asking him to cast their clients in the film. (Photo: The Hateful Eight screenwriter Quentin Tarantino.) “I’m very, very depressed,” Tarantino was quoted as saying at Deadline.com, which first broke The Hateful Eight Screenplay Leak story on Tuesday, January 21, 2014. “I finished a script, a first draft, and I didn’t mean to shoot it until next winter, a year from now. I gave it to six people, and apparently it’s gotten out today.” Now, before they begin flailing and wailing, Quentin Tarantino fans should be »
