Netflix's Little Evil Trailer: Adam Scott Adopts the Antichrist
The Antichrist is here in Netflix's upcoming horror comedy Little Evil. Another original outing for the streaming service, it stars Adam Scott and Evangeline Lilly in a hilarious new take on The Omen. Arriving just in time for the fall season, Little Evil will debut on September 1st.

From writer/director Eli Craig (Tucker & Dale vs. Evil); Adam Scott (Big Little Lies, Parks & Rec) and Evangeline Lilly (Ant-Man, Lost) star in this offbeat comedy about love, family, and the Antichrist.

But he soon finds himself in increasingly odd situations around the child, which drives him to believe his new stepson may actually be the spawn of Satan.

Also starring in the movie are Donald Faison, Bridget Everett, and Chris D'Elia. The movie was produced by Jason Michael Berman,

Blu-ray Review: Carrie (1976) Collector’s Edition

  • DailyDead
Released 40 years ago today, Brian De Palma’s 1976 adaptation of Stephen King’s debut novel Carrie remains a masterpiece of modern horror. It is a teenage pop nightmare of a film, a dreamy exploration of horrors both real and supernatural. Expertly directed, gorgeously photographed and acted with total sincerity by a cast of then-newcomers, it remains one of the very best King adaptations despite being first out of the gate.

Know how I know De Palma’s Carrie is a brilliant adaptation and one of the best horror movies ever made? Because other filmmakers have tried adapting it three other times across three other decades: Katt Shea in 1999 (with The Rage: Carrie 2, basically a Carrie remake and the best of the lot), David Carson for SyFy in 2002 and, most recently, Kimberly Pierce in 2013. None of them come close to touching the 1976 original.

From its famous opening sequence, in which

Editorial: The Many Faces of Carrie

Everyone, horror fan or not, knows who Stephen King is. Whether they read one of his books or watched one of the many film adaptations of his work, you will recognize one of his creations. Many children have a formed a fear of clowns after meeting Pennywise in It or are hesitant to stay at hotels after The Shining or 1408. A story many are familiar with is that of Carrie White, the girl with the religious fanatic for a mother who is taunted so much at school that it eventually leads to a blood bath of a prom. She kills her tormentors using her newly discovered telekinesis and ends up dying in the end alongside her mother. Her story was doomed from the start and, as tragic as it is, serves as a cautionary tale to those who might want to think twice before making fun of someone. King’s novel,

Blu-ray Review: Bad Moon

  • DailyDead
Given some distance and the perspective of time, almost every horror film seems to look better and find its audience. Though the early to mid 1990s have long been considered a particularly bad period for American horror movies, recent years have seen a number of titles being reassessed and opinions on them revised to be much more favorable than they were 20 years ago. Titles like Disturbing Behavior and I Know What You Did Last Summer and The Rage: Carrie 2, largely written off by horror fans during their theatrical releases in the ’90s, are now being talked about as secretly good genre efforts not because the movies have actually improved, but because enough time has passed that the films can be removed from their historical context and taken for what they are.

Of course, some ’90s titles were always secretly good; they only needed some time to find their audience.

October 21st 2015 – How Much Did Back to the Future Part II Get Right?

Luke Owen celebrates Back to the Future Day…

Well guys and girls, it’s finally here. The day Marty, Doc and Jennifer arrive in “the future”. The day Biff steals the time machine and goes back to 1955 to create an alternate 1985 by giving his younger self the Greys Sports Almanac that tells him every sports result from now (then) until the year 2000 only for Marty and Doc to go back to 1955 – the same day that 1955 Doc is trying to send the other 1985 Marty back to 1985 – to steal back the Almanac and burn it to re-align the time line.

It’s a brilliant film, isn’t it?

We are now officially in the future. And after today, everything in Back to the Future takes place in the past. There is no more future for that franchise. Crazy, right?

So what did Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale get right about October 21st,

The Summer That Rebooted the Reboot

  • SoundOnSight
Does Hollywood try to remake/sequelize/franchise-extend every single one of its successful movies? Sometimes it feels that way, but there’s a little more nuance to studio practices than that. If you’re looking for meaning in this summer’s blockbuster season – not always easy – you could call it Dr. JurassicMax or How Hollywood Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Reboot. Rebooting franchises isn’t as common, well-received, or lucrative as you might think. Today let’s look briefly at the history of the reboot – and how this summer changed it.

First, what technically counts as a reboot? One school would say that anytime the cast shuffles, it’s a reboot, meaning we’re now on the second reboot (and third iteration) of Spider-Man films. That’s pretty rare; far more often, duration between films is the deciding factor, and it just doesn’t feel right to slap

Blu-ray Review: Carrie (2002) / The Rage: Carrie 2

  • DailyDead
Could anyone have guessed when Stephen King published his first novel Carrie in 1974 that it would spawn no fewer than four big screen adaptations? Brian De Palma’s 1976 version remains the first and best, but each subsequent filmmaker who comes at the material seeks to find something new and unexplored in King’s book. Of the two remakes and one sequel released in the last 16 years, only one movie has succeeded in being different enough to justify its own existence. It’s The Rage: Carrie 2, and it’s being packaged with the 2002 made-for-tv remake on a new double feature Blu-ray from Scream Factory.

By now you already know the story of Carrie White, a shy and awkward teenage girl raised by a religious zealot mother and possessing some major telekinetic abilities. When some kids at school decide play a big, bloody prank on her the prom, Carrie retaliates with

Bluray Review: The Babadook

The film that made countless best of 2014 lists (including mine) hits DVD/Bluray today, courtesy of the new partnership between the folks at Scream Factory and IFC Midnight…that’s right, Jennifer Kent’s greatly entertaining film, The Babadook. Available in a regular edition, as well as a limited pop-up cover Bluray edition that resembles the book itself, some have asked whether or not the Sf/IFC partnership would include the special features that many of Scream Factory’s releases have carried, and the answer is…well, read on!

The Film:

When it comes to fresh, exciting and smart horror, Jennifer Kent’s feature debut is one that easily lives up the hype it gathered throughout festivals and an impressive theatrical run in 2014. The story of a woman and her troubled son, dealing with loss and unable to properly mourn and cope, is such an entertaining and visual treat. Essie Davis

Bluray Review: Class Of 1984

Mark L. Lester’s 1982 cautionary tale, Class Of 1984, makes its Bluray debut and takes the cake as far as Scream Factory’s recent releases go, easily being the most entertaining and definitely a must-own for any collectors of not only cult cinema but great films in general. Not only does the teachers vs. students classic look absolutely gorgeous in HD, but is also given the Sf treatment, with brand new interviews filled to the brim with stories and entertaining docs.

The Film:

What makes Class Of 1984 so entertaining, is not only its entertainment value, but also how dead on the film was about the condition of schools and events that would eventually become a reality. Telling the tale of Perry King’s Andy Norris character, an idealistic teacher still in love with teaching music to students, the film starts on Andy’s first day as a teacher at Lincoln High.

Bluray Review: Carrie (2002)/The Rage: Carrie 2 (1999) Double Feature

Scream Factory gives a double dose of telekinetic angst and revenge with the double feature of 2002’s Bryan Fuller (TV’s Hannibal)-scripted TV adaption of Carrie and 1999’s The Rage: Carrie 2, which is a sequel to the original 1976 film version of Stephen King’s novel. Done scratching your heads in confusion? We took a look at the double feature, and the big question of whether or not to pass or purchase this one might be on your mind, but unless you’re a hardcore fan of one or both films, you might want to opt out of this one in exchange for Sf’s Class Of 1984 or The Babadook releases (also coming out on 4/14)

Sequels are rarely more random and less asked-for than The Rage: Carrie 2.

Carrie (2002) / The Rage: Carrie 2 Blu-ray Double Feature Release Details Revealed

  • DailyDead
Sometimes, high school can be a virtual hell. Mileage varies by the individual, of course, but in a place where acceptance at a lunch table can be akin to finding an oasis in a desert, there's more weight on the shoulders of many teens than just their backpack straps. Such is the case for Ewen High School student Carrie White, the telekinetic titular character of Stephen King's seminal debut novel published in 1974.

Carrie has been adapted for the screen multiple times for multiple generations, and Scream Factory is giving the Generation Y versions a high-definition upgrade, with their Carrie and The Rage: Carrie 2 double feature Blu-ray now set to hit shelves with an official release date and bonus features, including two new audio commentaries.

Get A Double Dose of Carrie When Scream Factory Releases Carrie/The Rage: Carrie 2 To Bluray This April!!

Don’t we all love us some telekinetic teenage angst?

While last year saw yet another adaption of Stephen King’s classic novel, the 2002 version was a lot closer to the source material and though nothing will top Brian De Palma’s 1976 Carrie, the Bettis-led version is quite entertaining. Plus, with scenes like seeing one of the kids from Home Improvement getting his balls impaled in The Rage: Carrie 2, what’s not to like about that one?

Premiering at SXSW earlier this year, Beyond Clueless is a documentary which journeys into the mind, body and soul of the teen movie, as seen through the eyes of over 200 modern coming-of-age classics. Narrated by cult teen star Fairuza Balk and with an original score by Summer Camp the film will delight teen movie fans as they reminisce over their favourites. Thn spoke to director Charlie Lyne after the film was presented at Sheffield Doc/Fest 2014.

Congratulations on the movie; it’s great to see teen movies like Loser back on the big screen; who doesn’t love that!

This is the great thing, everyone comes out and wants to thank me for putting a specific film in and it’s always a different one. No-one’s ever mentioned Loser to me before so yeah, it’s very vindicating.

What’s the usual movie people mention?
