Book Review: ‘The Loney’ by Andrew Michael Hurley

8 September 2015 2:24 PM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

Reviewed by Jesse Miller

After I had finished reading The Loney, the unsettling and hypnotic debut novel by Andrew Michael Hurley, I remained sitting on my couch just digesting what I had just experienced.

I decided to give it a few days just so everything in the novel - the imagery, the characters, the story and themes – had a good amount of time to be processed so I could sit down and write a review. Only I can’t think of where to begin tackling this powerful piece of writing.

The Loney is a superbly written gothic tale, worthy to take a place among the greats such as Wuthering Heights and The Haunting of Hill House. But it’s much more than that - It’s a tale about faith, examining not only the extremity of it in folks but also the absence of it. And it doesn »

Patricia Neal ca. 1950. Patricia Neal movies: 'The Day the Earth Stood Still,' 'A Face in the Crowd' Back in 1949, few would have predicted that Gary Cooper's leading lady in King Vidor's The Fountainhead would go on to win a Best Actress Academy Award 15 years later. Patricia Neal was one of those performers – e.g., Jean Arthur, Anne Bancroft – whose film career didn't start out all that well, but who, by way of Broadway, managed to both revive and magnify their Hollywood stardom. As part of its “Summer Under the Stars” series, Turner Classic Movies is dedicating Sunday, Aug. 16, '15, to Patricia Neal. This evening, TCM is showing three of her best-known films, in addition to one TCM premiere and an unusual latter-day entry. 'The Day the Earth Stood Still' Robert Wise was hardly a genre director.

5 Underseen Haunted House Movies As Scary As Poltergeist

20 May 2015 9:43 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

The argument over who directed Poltergeist - the credited Tobe Hooper or producer and co-writer Steven Spielberg -  weirdly reflects the tone of the 1982 hit, which starred Craig T. Nelson as a father who moves his family into a California suburb built on a Native American burial ground. The film melds some genuinely strange and galvanizing images of the home rebelling against its new owners with a healthy dose of the thoughtful family dynamics that made E.T. and Close Encounters of the Third Kind so distinct. In a way, one could see Hooper as the malevolent, unbound spirit trying to burst through the veneer of Spielberg's impeccably designed environs and relatively mild strain of sentimental hokum. [caption id="attachment_461657" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via Associated Film[/caption] Both Hooper, the ingenious wild man behind The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, and Spielberg are obsessives when it comes to the realms of the supernatural onscreen, clearly versed in creature features, »

The top 25 underappreciated films of 1989

28 April 2015 11:45 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From a crazy early Nic Cage role to a lesser-known film starring Robert De Niro, here's our pick of 25 underappreciated films from 1989...

Ah, 1989. The year the Berlin Wall came down and Yugoslavia won the Eurovision Song Contest. It was also a big year for film, with Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade topping the box office and Batman dominating the summer with its inescapable marketing blitz.

Outside the top 10 highest-grossing list, which included Back To The Future II, Dead Poets Society and Honey I Shrunk The Kids, 1989 also included a plethora of less commonly-appreciated films. Some were big in their native countries but only received a limited release in the Us and UK. Others were poorly received but have since been reassessed as cult items.

From comedies to thrillers, here's our pick of 25 underappreciated films from the end of the 80s...

Though many know Owen Wilson for his more comedic roles in films like Wedding Crashers, earlier in his career he took on a variety of films from Behind Enemy Lines to The Haunting, and two of his earliest films were Armageddon and Anaconda. Now Wilson is getting back into action thriller territory with No Escape (formerly known as The Coup), the story of a man who finds himself and his family threatened in the middle of a political uprising just after moving to Southeast Asia. Pierce Brosnan and Lake Bell also star in the film which looks pretty intense, and might open some new doors for Wilson in other genres again. Watch!
