Plans change quickly on Big Brother 17. The Sixth Sense alliance of Vanessa, Austin, Clay, Shelli and Liz/Julia is in a precarious position this week. Both of the twins will come in this week if Liz survives, but can all of them stick together or will they fall apart before the Twin Twist even goes into effect.
Spoiler Warning: This article contains Big Brother 17 spoilers.
Halfway through the series Wayward Pines, episode five lands a serious twist, a bold move that might have arrived too soon, yet performs as a mighty cliffhanger and game-changer for the whole show. Wayward Pines is currently running on the Fox television network billed as an "event series", an adaptation of a book trilogy by Blake Crouch, who serves as consulting producer under the showrunning auspice of Chad Hodge of The Playboy Club. Before the official launch, one of the show´s PR magnets that temporarily clouded other aspects was the presence of M. Night Shyamalan, executive producer and the director of the pilot. For a brief moment, it almost looked the like famed The Sixth Sense director would be seeking artistic rebirth on the television turf,...

In the penultimate episode of this ‘event drama’ things take a disturbing turn. With feelings running high, expectations weighting heavy upon Matt Dillon’s Ethan Burke and the towns folk out for blood, it was bound to turn nasty.
As power starts slipping away from David Pilcher and his sister continues undermining him, Wayward Pines simmers over like a prison riot. With the true realisation of their situation beginning to dawn, vigilante behaviour seeps through the pores of these indoctrinated individuals. While ritual execution once used as a deterrent, is now considered the norm in a community rift with frustration.
As ever the key to Wayward Pines remains Matt Dillon. Closely followed by Melissa Leo in a role which has evolved week on week, while Jones has devolved into delusion. Shannyn Sossman and Charlie Tahan remain effective in their roles as »

M. Night Shyamalan returns to his roots with the terrifying story of a brother and sister who are sent to their grandparents’ remote Pennsylvania farm for a weeklong trip called The Visit, and in true M. Night form, things don’t necessarily go as planned. Last week, I got the chance to sit down with Shymalan in a small round table discussion about working outside of the film system. Check it out below.
A single mother sends her two young children to visit their grandparents on a remote Pennsylvania farm for a week-long trip, but the children discover that the elderly couple is involved in deeply disturbing activity, and the youngsters’ chances of getting back home look less and less likely with every minute that passes.
Writer/director/producer M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense, Signs, Unbreakable) and producer Jason Blum (Paranormal Activity, The Purge and Insidious series) welcome you to Universal Pictures’ The Visit. »

Spooky sequel The Woman In Black: Angel Of Death is out to buy this week. One of the noteworthy aspects on the disc is an interview with Jeremy Irvine, the film’s male lead and an up-and- comer who is being watched with great interest.
Thn parted the ether for a chat with Jeremy about the world of Gothic horror, his surprising personal connection to the character and what it’s like to step through the infamous doors of Hammer Studios…!
Thn: Tell us a bit about your character in the film.
Jeremy Irvine: I play Harry. He is, or he appears to be, an Raf bomber pilot… but like all the characters in the film he has his own ghosts and demons, and isn’t quite who he appears to be. At the beginning he’s like the archetypal young hero airman, but then all is not quite what it seems. »

While at the 2015 San Diego Comic-Con, Daily Dead had the opportunity to speak with filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan on the heels of his panel for The Visit, his latest feature film which was co-produced by Blumhouse and will be arriving in theaters on September 11, 2015 courtesy of Universal Studios.
Here’s what Shyamalan had to say on making a movie completely off of Hollywood’s radar, confronting society’s fear of aging, working on his recent Fox TV series Wayward Pines, his approach to creating visual metaphors in all of his work and much more.
So what's it like making a movie in secret?
M. Night Shyamalan: It's been a little bit freeing, like when I write a screenplay too. I'm always very quiet about it. I don't tell anybody it, even family, and I just want to learn about the characters in the purest way that I can. When I can hit the colors, »

M. Night Shyamalan’s descent into critical and commercial purgatory is almost legendary at this point. The filmmaker who made The Sixth Sense, one of the highest-grossing films of all-time, made a string of flops in the mid-to-late-aughts and earned a reputation for twist endings – an erroneous reputation, as only a few of his films have genuine “twists.” His most recent film, The Visit, shot in the found-footage style (several years after the sub-genre reached its peak, weirdly) in just 27 days, was self-financed for $5 million — which guaranteed that it would be his vision, without studio interference. Shyamalan spoke with The Verge about the decision to go rogue, so to speak: I just wanted to concentrate on storytelling. I just wanted to concentrate on the things that make me happy as a filmmaker: writing a great script, not worrying about convincing someone else to make it, which is already »

What happens when the king of small budget horror and the director of The Sixth Sense get together? Well, here at Comic Con we had a preview of a little genre mash-up called The Visit directed by M. Night Shyamalan with producing giant Jason Blum of Blumhouse Productions. The two joined moderator Ryan Turek to talk about what happens when two young children go to visit their grandparents. ...

It's been over 15 years since Haley Joel Osment uttered the iconic line "I see dead people" in M. Night Shyamalan's classic 1999 film, The Sixth Sense, and now the writer/director is back at Comic-Con promoting his latest movie, The Visit. M. Night promises us that The Visit is his scariest film yet, reveals whether he believes in ghosts, and gives us the scoop on a sequel to The Sixth Sense. »
M Night Shyamalan admits that Unbreakable 2 may hold some relevance, as Samuel L Jackson says he'd love to do the film.
Off the back of his huge success with The Sixth Sense, M Night Shyamalan followed it up by writing and producing Unbreakable. Unbreakable was and is an intriguing film, one with a few problems, but still very much worth watching. It brought Bruce Willis and Samuel L Jackson back together again, and after it hit, there had been talk of making a sequel. But, to date, a sequel has never materialised.
However, in a new interview at Entertainment Weekly, M Night Shyamalan holds out the possibility that it may yet happen. "Maybe there's an interest right now in the underlying struggles and fantasies that are being fulfilled in comic books and not being fulfilled in the real world", he argued.
Shyamalan at one stage had a trilogy planned, yet »
In a recent interview, Dustin Hoffman said we are at an all-time cinematic low. Is he correct?
While Hollywood is enjoying a record-breaking summer at the box office, not everyone is having a great time at the cinema. In a new interview, Dustin Hoffman (Ishtar, Little Fockers, Mr Magorium’s Wonder Emporium) has lamented the state of cinema, calling it the worst it’s “ever been”.
But what do you think? We want to know about your best and worst years at the cinema. Did you have a memorable 1999 watching Fight Club, Magnolia, The Sixth Sense, All About My Mother and Being John Malkovich? Or was 2003 a disaster for you enduring Daredevil, Boat Trip, The Cat in the Hat, Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle and Dumb and Dumberer?

In what’s become the best, and craziest, show this summer, Fox’s Wayward Pines has become must-see TV.
The intense episodes play out more like a movie and the soundtrack is haunting and other-worldly.
Lakeshore Records has announced it will release the Wayward Pines – Original Television Soundtrack digitally on July 17 and on CD July 24, 2015. The album features the show’s original score by Charlie Clouser (Saw, Numb3rs).
“The main direction I received was that the score should help with the feeling that ‘something is not right’ in the town of Wayward Pines,” said Clouser. “For a while, we don’t know if Matt Dillon’s character is hallucinating, or maybe still in a coma and just dreaming, so the score needed to lean toward a ‘malfunctioning’ feel – that meant using sounds that are a little ‘out of whack’. As the series progresses, the score starts to get more and »

It's no surprise to discover that The Messenger's director David Blair also helmed several episodes of the wonderful 1990s BBC One drama The Lakes. He has a wonderful knack for imbuing nature and buildings with an ethereal quality that entrances our eyes and establishes a foreboding atmosphere, as is evident in his latest film.
The unsettling tale follows Robert Sheehan's troubled soul Jack, a young man burdened by all the dead people that talk to him. "I don't want to help people, I want to get rid of them," he bemoans at one stage. But can he use what he learns to figure out the grizzly demise of someone connected to him? Or will the police, concerned by his bizarre behaviour, deal with him first?
A fascinating lead turn from the »

I've long wished for a return to form from M. Night Shyamalan; several of his early works including The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable still retain their status amongst my list of favourite films, but unfortunately the once great director can't seem to return to the storyteller that was once labeled as the next Spielberg. M. Night Shyamalan's latest film, The Visit, marks... Read More »

Still eschewing irony, satire or self-awareness, TV’s bros-before-hos celebration of young guys living the celeb dream reaches the big screen
Producer Mark Wahlberg’s Hollywood un-satire Entourage ran for 96 episodes on TV from 2004 to 2011; now he has brought it to the big screen. It’s another bros-before-hos celebration of young guys living the celeb dream – riding smugly around La together in that bromantic four-seater convertible. There are unfunny and unsatirical star cameos, including one from our own Piers Morgan. As ever, where you might expect irony and biting comment, there is uncritical adoration. Super-hot young actor Vince (Adrian Grenier) is super-hotter than ever; he has just blown off his young wife after a few days of marriage and the status quo reasserts itself. He is always accompanied by his boys, his entourage. Lovable deadbeat brother Johnny “Drama” (Kevin Dillon) is still a failing actor – though he’s also supposed to be seriously good. »

This review contains spoilers.
Boy, do I love good sleight-of-hand. And this week’s Primavera did it extremely well. But back to that in a moment.
We had been promised in PR materials that we’d learn the fate of those Hannibal butchered back in Baltimore: Jack, Alana, Will, and Abigail. But of course, it would have been unlike the patient Fuller to actually let spill all the secrets at once, so for now, narratively speaking, the status of Jack and Alana remains a mystery. Although, since we know both Lawrence Fishburne and Caroline Dhavernas are regulars this third season, it’s doubtful that either is dead—though Primavera does suggest an interesting alternate possibility for the return of Alana’s character. But what we do know is that Will and Abigail survived the attack. »
