Haunter review not scary enough to put the frighteners on

3 April 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The ghost of a serial killer inhabits Abigail Breslin in this supernatural nail-biter, but it's too derivative

Abigail Breslin takes the lead in this serviceable supernatural horror thriller as 15-year-old Lisa, the only one aware that she and her family are trapped in a monotonous Groundhog Day of missing laundry, macaroni cheese and Murder She Wrote. After realising there's a ghost in the house, or rather quite a few, she sets about solving the mystery of her family's time loop, and ends up taking on the evil spirit of a serial killer who once lived there. He is the Haunter (an unnerving Stephen McHattie), who can possess the living. But who is living and who is dead? Director Vincenzo Natali (Cube, Splice) explores some intriguing ideas but the pace lags, and the film itself becomes inhabited by the presence of The Amityville Horror, The Shining and The Others, to name a few. »

'Orphan Black' Co-Creator Graeme Manson Talks Nature Vs. Nurture and Cronenberg Influences In His Clone Drama

27 March 2014 9:27 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

"Orphan Black" was television's sleeper hit of 2013. BBC America's just barely sci-fi drama won over audiences and journalists with its fleet, twisty storytelling and wry sense of humor, anchored by a virtuoso set of performances by Golden Globe nominee Tatiana Maslany, who plays a set of identical clones with very different personalities and upbringings, from an uptight soccer mom to a biology grad student to a psychotic assassin. Produced in Canada, where it airs on the Space channel, "Orphan Black" has presented a rich mythology that includes religious (Prolethians) and scientific (Neolutionists) factions trying to destroy or control the clones, among them the scrappy Sarah Manning, the show's punky main character -- but it has never let its conspiracies get in the way of its sense of fun. With season two of the series set to premiere on April 19th, Indiewire sat down with Graeme Manson ("Cube"), who co-created »

‘Maze Runner’ Teaser & Poster; Full Trailer Tonight on ‘Teen Wolf’

17 March 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

For whatever reason, our current creative media have a real lust for stories about dystopian and post-apocalyptic societies. Hopefully it’s just a trend rather than something genuinely prophetic. One such dystopian sci-fi tale on the way in fall 2014 is The Maze Runner, the feature film debut from director Wes Ball, based on James Dashner’s novel of the same name.

The Maze Runner is conceptually similar to Vincenzo Natali’s 1997 sci-fi movie Cube. The protagonist, a teenage boy called Thomas (played by Teen Wolf‘s Dylan O’Brien), wakes up stripped of his memories in an enormous artificial compound populated by other teenagers. There is a living area (‘the Glade’) at the center and an enormous maze stretching out in every direction beyond it. In this social microcosm the strongest and smartest teens are ‘runners,’ whose job it is to ...

Blu-ray Review: ‘Haunter’ Does More Than Simply Haunt

14 February 2014 2:08 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Director Vincenzo Natali’s name always gets my attention. You always get the sense tha the’s trying to do something new. He first came to prominence with “Cube” (1997), which is a gorily stylistic bit of cheap psychological horror masquerading as science fiction. “Nothing” (2003) put two men in a literal void reminiscent in some ways of the classic and surreal Chuck Jones Looney Tune “Duck Amuck”. “Splice” (2009) offered an updated Frankenstein myth mixed with sexual politics and a critique of profit-driven genetic engineering.

Rating: 3.5/5.0

So, it’s a little surprising to see him tackle something as careworn as the classic ghost story. “Haunter” has been called a scary version of “Groundhog’s Day”. In reality, from its opening frame, it’s clear that Natali is after far more than simple scares or genre mashup. He’s treading old ground in surprisingly novel fashion (especially compared to his mainstream peers »

Evil Spreads Like a Virus in Debug

6 February 2014 11:22 AM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

"Evil Can't Be Deleted" reads the tagline for the newest supernatural sci-fi/horror hybrid, Debug, and we're not sure why, but it makes us kind of snicker. Maybe it's because of the whole downloading evil meter in I, Frankenstein or something. In any event...

Debug is directed by David Hewlett (Cube) and stars “Games of Thrones” star Jason Momoa. Check out some sales art and stills which have arrived for Efm.

Synopsis

This 'Fear Paris' Trailer Does a Great Job Teasing the Next Great Horror Anthology

4 February 2014 5:00 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Way back in 2010 a new horror anthology called Paris, I'll Kill You was announced. At the time it had a pretty impressive roster of directors on board:  Joe Dante (Gremlins) Xavier Gens (Frontieres) Ryuhei Kitamura (Midnight Meat Train) Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo (Inside) Vincenzo Natali (Cube) Paco Plaza ([Rec]) Christopher Smith (Triangle) That is a mighty lineup of cool creatives from all over the globe, each with an undeniable knack for the horror genre. It's too bad, then, that this version of the movie never came to pass. Original producer Darryn Welch hasn't given up on the idea of a Paris-centric anthology, though. He's still trying to get it off the ground with a truncated set of directors and a new title: Fear Paris. Ahead of...
