Haunt Report: Dread Central Visits Haunted Hollywood Sports

28 October 2012 2:42 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

We all long to experience a realistic zombie apocalypse simulation, and while I already fled the undead at Run for Your Lives and braved Halloween Horror Nights’ "The Walking Dead" maze, I did so unarmed. That wasn’t the case when Dread Central hit Haunted Hollywood Sports.

Located at 9030 Somerset Blvd. in Bellflower, CA, Haunted Hollywood Sports is the seasonal (and spooky) recreation of Hollywood Sports, a park dedicated year round to the pursuit of Airsoft and Paintball. The former is basically paintball without the messy paint and cumbersome guns. Resembling the military firearms they mimic with exacting detail, Airsoft weaponry eschews paint in favor of 6mm plastic BBs, which can be fired rapidly and with high velocity. The result is a training weapon platform that allows players to engage in fairly realistic combat scenarios (as long as proper face gear is worn: those BBs will easily knock teeth out »

Thn HalloweenFest Day 26: The Haunting

26 October 2012 8:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

 

‘A closed mind is the worst defence against the supernatural… If it happens to you, your liable to have that shut door in your mind ripped right off it’s hinges.’

Director: Robert Wise

Cast: Julie Harris, Claire Bloom, Russ Tamblyn, Richard Johnson

Synopsis: Dr John Markway (Richard Johnson) is a paranormal investigator. He gathers a team of unlikely assistants to come and stay in what (he hopes) is a haunted house. But they could never have expected the terror and trauma that awaits them in Hill House.

There’s nothing like a good ol’ fashioned ghost story. If it’s done well, there will be no need for blood and gore and if it’s done Very well, you won’t have to see anything horrific at all. No killer, no climatic demon that doesn’t live up to expectations. The horror is in your head and the terror in intangible. »

100 + Greatest Horror Movies (pt.4) 75-51

Throughout the month of October, Editor-in-Chief and resident Horror expert Ricky D, will be posting a list of his favorite Horror films of all time. The list will be posted in six parts. Click here to see every entry.

As with all lists, this is personal and nobody will agree with every choice – and if you do, that would be incredibly disturbing. It was almost impossible for me to rank them in order, but I tried and eventually gave up.

Special Mention:

American Psycho

Directed by Mary Harrron

Written by Mary Harron

2000, USA

Bret Easton Ellis’s dark and violent satire of America in the 1980s was brought to the big screen by director Mary Harron. Initially slapped with the MPAA’s kiss of death (an Nc-17 rating), American Psycho was later re-edited and reduced to a more commercially dependable “R”. Perhaps the film works best as a slick satire about misogyny, »

Cheap Scares: A conversation with filmmaker Oren Peli

22 October 2012 4:41 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Jeffrey Aidoo chats with filmmaker Oren Peli, director of Paranormal Activity and writer-producer of Chernobyl Diaries...

Oren Peli’s rise to success has been a meteoric one; the original Paranormal Activity film about a young couple who are haunted by a supernatural presence in their home which was written and directed by Peli has earned approximately $194 million worldwide and spawned three sequels (with a possible fourth in the works), which is pretty impressive considering the original film only cost $15,000 to make. After writing the following two Paranormal Activity movies and producing the fourth - as well as writing Chernobyl Diaries, which follows six tourists on an extreme tour in the abandoned city of Pripyat, the former home to the workers of the Chernobyl nuclear reactor - Oren Peli has certainly established himself as a master of horror amongst a new generation of filmmakers. Not a bad resume for a former computer programmer. »

150: Session 9

Directed by Brad Anderson

Written by Stephen Gevedon and Brad Anderson

2001, USA

If there was ever a perfect setting for a horror movie, it would be the abandoned Danvers State Mental Hospital. Built in 1878 on an isolated site in rural Massachusetts, it was a multi-acre, self-contained psychiatric hospital rumoured to have been the birthplace of the pre-frontal lobotomy. The hospital was the setting for the 2001 horror film Session 9, where an asbestos clean-up crew discover a series of nine tapes, which have recorded a patient with multiple personalities, all of which are innocent, except for number nine. With a shoestring budget and no real special effects, Session 9 »

'666 Park Avenue's' Terry O'Quinn: 'It's getting better every week'

30 September 2012 3:00 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

It's probably not a coincidence that "666 Park Avenue," a new suspense drama premiering Sunday, Sept. 30, on ABC, opens in a glittering New York concert hall where an elegantly dressed audience listens to a classical performance. The orchestra's concertmaster is in the middle of negotiating a tricky violin passage when suddenly the strings of his instrument begin cutting into his fingers, as if dipped in acid. Gritting his teeth in pain and mounting terror, the musician manages to get through the passage as drops of blood fly onto the music pages. In the audience, Gavin Doran (Terry O'Quinn, "Lost") and his beautiful wife, Olivia (Vanessa Williams, "Desperate Housewives"), smile enigmatically.

Suffice it to say that violinist's night quickly goes from bad to the worst imaginable, but that sophisticated opening sets the tone for this series set in the Drake, a stately New York high-rise that seems to have a mind of its own. »

DVD Playhouse: September 2012

3 September 2012 10:58 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Interview | See recent The Hollywood Interview news »

By Allen Gardner

Quadrophenia (Criterion) Franc Roddam’s 1979 film based on The Who’s classic rock opera tells the story of working class lad Jimmy (Phil Daniels) struggling to find his identity in a rapidly changing Britain, circa 1965. Jimmy is a “mod,” a youth movement dedicated to wearing snappy suits, driving Vespa motor scooters bedecked with side mirrors, popping amphetamines and obsessed with the new sound of bands like The Who and The Kinks. Their other pastime is engaging in bloody brawls with “rockers,” throwbacks to the 1950s, who listen to Elvis and Gene Vincent, wear leather biker gear, grease in their hair and drive massive motorcycles a la Marlon Brando in “The Wild One.” Often cited as a worthy successor to “Rebel Without a Cause” as the greatest angry youth picture ever made, it is that and more, including a first cousin to the “kitchen sink” dramas of scribes John Osborne, »

Mark Kermode's DVD round-up

16 June 2012 4:12 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The Woman in Black; Carnage; Safe House; House of Tolerance

After scaring the jeepers out of parents who couldn't believe their Harry Potter-loving offspring were allowed to watch this kind of thing, The Woman in Black (2012, Momentum, 12) ships up on DVD in the same slightly trimmed version that avoided a 15 certificate through judicious shortening. Having co-written the supremely nasty My Little Eye and gone for the jugular in the viscerally satirical Eden Lake, director James Watkins here foregrounds atmosphere over shocks, looking toward the templates of The Orphanage and The Others with impressively shiversome results.

Deftly adapted by Kick-Ass screenwriter Jane Goldman from Susan Hill's novel (which itself owed a debt to Shirley Jackson's The Haunting of Hill House), this gas-lit period creeper sees Daniel Radcliffe's dowdy lawyer Arthur Kipps sent to close the affairs of an abandoned house whose grounds are separated from the world by a foggy causeway. »

The Awakening's Supernatural Charms, A Movie Review

13 April 2012 12:42 PM, PDT | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

*spoiler alert.

Director: Nick Murphy.

Writers: Stephen Volk and Nick Murphy.

Cast: Rebecca Hall, Dominic West and Imelda Staunton.

Back in the days of post-war England, true paranormal investigators were few and far between. Spiritualists most likely outnumbered the sleuths who were interested in debunking the paranormal. While Houdini did correspond with Harry Price, a British pioneer of paranormal research, both of them were well respected for chasing after frauds. For Price, he showed that the investigative approach to proving the existence of ghosts must be methodical.

In The Awakening, Florence Cathcart (Rebecca Hall) is a self-proclaimed investigator with plenty of credentials to show that every paranormal case has a plausible reason. This myth buster heads to a boarding school to find a ghost boy said to be haunting the premises, and disprove his existence.

This movie combines the best elements from Shelly Jackson's The Haunting of Hill House, Alejandro Amenábar’s The Others, »

The Top Ten ‘One Hit Wonder’ Directors

29 March 2012 5:05 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

In the world of film there are few accolades higher than being considered a venerable director; be it a ‘genre master’, like John Ford with his westerns, or a jack of all trades such as Stanley Kubrick or Ridley Scott. If there’s one thing film history shows us it is that some directors have that knack for making great film after great film.

However, there is also a rich vein of historical one hit wonder directors, those who hit one film out of the park and then never repeat that success, whether due to self-indulgence, directing only a very small number of films, or having fluked their one triumph.

Here’s our top ten masters of that brief shining moment.

10. Tony Kaye

A truly interesting one, you could debate whether Tony Kaye deserves to be on the list on the basis of never truly having a hit. Having just »

Mark Kermode's DVD round-up

24 March 2012 5:05 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The Awakening; Take Shelter; Wuthering Heights; 50/50; Tower Heist; Puss in Boots; Happy Feet Two; The Thing

One unexpected side effect of the attritional gore war waged by seemingly endless Saw and Hostel sequels has been the rise of more subtle ghostly chillers whose old-fashioned charms are in stark contrast to the shrieking white noise of modern torture-porn tedium. With the 12-rated haunted-house throwback movie The Woman in Black still making a killing at the UK box office, Nick Murphy's similarly spirited The Awakening (2011, StudioCanal, 15) offers home viewers a few creepy tingles in the vein of (though not of the same calibre as) The Orphanage and The Others.

At the centre of its efficiently executed spell is Rebecca Hall, whose expertly nuanced performance raises this above the level of the humdrum. She plays Florence Cathcart, a sceptical investigator with a penchant for debunking claims of paranormal activity in the ghostly »

The Woman in Black & Ghosts of the Past

20 February 2012 4:59 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Since its first publication in 1983, Susan Hill’s Gothic chiller The Woman in Black has been terrorising audiences, from teenagers studying the novel in English lessons to horror aficionados like Mark Kermode, who wrote a chapter on the novel for his PhD in horror fiction. Its reputation has been subsequently enhanced by the long-running stage play, which left the author of this piece so scared, he had to be prised from his chair with a crowbar.

The most recent incarnation of The Woman in Black (our review Here) was released in cinemas on February 10th, with the backing of the reformed Hammer brand and the star power of Daniel Radcliffe in his first proper post-Potter role. It joins a ream of recent ghost stories to make it to our screens, including The Others, The Orphanage and The Awakening. What explains this resurgence for old-fashioned horror of creaks, shadows and suggestion? »

James Wan’s ‘Warren Files’ Casts Creepy Kids

7 February 2012 5:02 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

In 2010, Patrick Wilson got haunted in Insidious. In 1999, Lili Taylor got haunted in The Haunting. Now the two are heading back into the haunted house together with Vera Farmiga and Ron Livingston in James Wan’s The Warren Files. Now they’ll have children to look after as ghosts chase them around in New England. According to Variety, Mackenzie Foy (Twilight) and Joey King (who will play young Talia Al Ghul in The Dark Knight Rises) have both been tapped to play young members of the based-on-real-life Perron family who claimed they were living with spirit from beyond in the 1970s. Taylor and Livingston play the adult members of the family, while Wilson and Farmiga play ghost investigators The Warrens. So, for those keeping track, with Insidious, The Warren Files and Insidious 2, James Wan is going to be telling ghost stories for a long time. »

Ron Livingston and Lili Taylor Join Paranormal Farmhouse Tale Formerly Known as 'The Conjuring'

25 January 2012 3:45 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

  The Haunting's Lili Taylor will be appearing in another supernatural tale, formerly called The Conjuring. The actress will be starring alongside Ron Livingston of Office Space fame for a story about the real-life Perron family's haunted farmhouse ordeal.

The Arnold Estate seemed like an idyllic place for the family with five daughters — until strange spirits were unleashed by their presence. Paranormal investigative legends Ed and Lorraine...

25 January 2012 1:38 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

A few days ago we reported that Insidious director James Wan’s latest paranormal project had cast Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga as real-life spook detectives Ed and Lorraine Warren.

James Wan’s The Conjuring: More Casting News

25 January 2012 10:02 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Last week, the casting process began on James Wan’s latest project, The Conjuring. Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson have already signed on for lead roles and we have news on two more cast additions.

Ron Livingston (Office Space) and Lili Taylor (The Haunting) are both in negotiations to join the film. According to THR, they will “play a couple who move with their kids to the farmhouse and begin to be haunted”. It is also being reported that there may be a title change, so we’ll report back as soon as there is confirmation on what the new title will be. The Conjuring will tell the story of a family who claimed to “live among the dead”:

“The project is inspired by the true-life story of the Perron family, who claimed they ‘lived among the dead’ in the 1970s as spirits both friendly and sinister inhabited their Rhode Island farmhouse. »

Ron Livingston and Lili Taylor Join James Wan’s Untitled Horror Film, Formerly Titled ‘The Conjuring’

24 January 2012 8:08 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Just a few days ago, we reported that writer and director James Wan had pulled in Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga to star in his latest haunted house horror show, then known as The Conjuring. Now, THR tells us that Ron Livingston and Lili Taylor are joining the project, now known as Untitled Warren Files Project.

The script, written by Chad and Carey Hayes — the scribe duo behind the House of Wax remake — revolves around a “husband and wife (Wilson, Farmiga) of demonologists and psychic investigators who enter the most horrifying case of their career, spirits in a Rhode Island farmhouse.” Livingston and Taylor are set to play a couple who move into the farmhouse with their kids as weird things begin to happen.

Similar to horror movies like The Amityville Horror — which was based on the “real” paranormal activities experience by the Lutz family in 1977 — the untitled project is »
