Scream Queens episodes 1 & 2 review: Pilot & Hell Week

24 September 2015 12:33 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

A satirical, uber-camp comedy horror romp inspired by Heathers, Scream and Mean Girls? Sign us up for Scream Queens...

This review contains spoilers.

1.1 Pilot & 1.2 Hell Week

The zany world of Ryan Murphy is a truly strange place be in. With American Horror Story, he essentially crafted four (soon to be five) different TV shows, and for its run-time, Glee remained a wholesome, relatively innocent confection. When the latter show finished, a space opened up on Murphy's slate and he quickly filled it with Scream Queens.

From its star-spangled cast to the whodunnit aspect to the great Jamie Lee Curtis in a main role, Scream Queens  has a lot going for it. Suffice to say there was a weight of expectation heaped upon it but, now that the first two episodes have landed, did it satisfy? The answer to that question isn't a simple yes or no.

Scream Queens, Ep. 1.01-1.02, “Pilot” and “Hell Week”

22 September 2015 5:00 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Scream Queens, Season 1, Episode 1, “Pilot”

Season 1, Episode 2, “Hell Week

Written by Ryan Murphy & Brad Falchuk & Ian Brennan

Directed by Ryan Murphy (“Pilot”), Brad Falchuk (“Hell Week”)

Airs on Tuesdays at 9pm (Et) on Fox

Given all of the momentum that Scream Queens had coming into the fall season, on the back of a marketing effort that began as far back as April, it’s a shame that in so many areas it falls completely short of its potential in the first two episodes. Many of Ryan Murphy’s shows suffer from being overstuffed with his usually creative ideas and this is no different. There are many pieces that entertain but as soon as one part of the ensemble clicks, whether it be the central sorority sisters or the many spokes that spin off the frenzied and threatened world of Kappa Kappa Tau, the focus shifts elsewhere and stalls any sort of momentary flow. »

Review: "The Editor", Homage To Italian Giallo Films; Blu-ray Special Edition From Shout! Factory

22 September 2015 3:39 PM, PDT | | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Todd Garbarini

I have been a fan of the Italian giallo subgenre for 30 years since my initiation into it was precipitated by my first viewing of Creepers (1985), the severely cut version of Dario Argento’s Phenomena, my personal favorite film of his. Subsequent viewings of films by both Mr. Argento and his mentor, Mario Bava, as well as Lucio Fulci, Lamberto Bava, Luigi Cozzi, and Michele Soavi solidified a love for the putrid and the fantastic, and anyone who has seen these movies knows how delightfully entertaining they are: off-kilter camera angles, ludicrous dialogue, and what writer Todd French referred to as “a maddening narrative looseness” are present in these films in a way that they are absent in other genres. There is just nothing like an Italian giallo film. With all of the mock horror films that have been made going back to 1981’s Student Bodies and the later, »

Scream Queens Season 1 Review

21 September 2015 8:24 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Two episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

Fox’s Scream Queens wants to be the missing link between Scary Movie and Scream, peppering its wacky humor with a wicked knack for gruesome violence in a way both stomach-churning and gut-busting. And given that co-creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk (reteaming with their Glee co-creator Ian Brennan) never met a genre they couldn’t invigorate with their trademark, devil-may-care theatricality, viewers might tune in optimistic about the series achieving that undeniably admirable goal.

What a shame, then, that the two-hour premiere is so quickly marred by its own mean streak. Minutes into the show, utterly loathsome sorority president Chanel Oberlin (Emma Roberts), head of the ultra-exclusive Kappa House that finds itself under siege from a killer in a red devil mask, dubs her maid “white mammy because she’s basically a house slave.” Especially in the wake of the VMAs, where »

The Scream Quadrilogy: How Wes Craven Redefined Scary Movies

12 September 2015 1:39 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

I’ve said this before, and I’m sure I’ll say it again, but it is something that always bears repeating- Wes Craven was a filmmaker that was ahead of his time. Throughout most of his career, the maven director was always about two steps ahead of everyone else- whether it was where the genre happened to be at during that given time, the types of films that Hollywood was making, or sometimes, even ahead of the fans themselves.

And while he continued to push the boundaries of horror time and time again from the 1970’s through the early 1990’s, perhaps the biggest indication of Craven’s genius as a forward-thinking storyteller has to be the Scream quadrilogy which not only redefined slasher movies but also redefined his career as well. Very few directors get a chance to directly affect the genre as a whole but Craven did so »

Remembering Wes Craven

10 September 2015 4:12 PM, PDT | | See recent AreYouScreening news »

The word craven may mean “cowardly,” but for slasher fans, it’s more appropriately synonymous with fear itself. Director Wes Craven, who died of brain cancer on August 30 at the age of 76, launched not one but two iconic horror franchises: A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) and Scream (1996). Though he demonstrated equitable skill with suspense thrillers and even straight dramas (he directed Meryl Streep to an Oscar nod in 1999’s Music of the Heart), Craven was first and foremost a horror master. Like Romero and Carpenter, his name will always carry an inextricable link to the genre.

For the discerning, though, there’s more to be found in Craven’s films than simple slice-and-dice gore (he can’t be held entirely responsible for Nightmare’s first five execrable sequels, as none were directed by him). His debut, 1972’s The Last House on the Left, is a thriller that turns the tables »

The Visit Review – Stop The Presses: M. Night Shyamalan Has Made A Film That Doesn’t Suck

10 September 2015 7:21 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Universal Pictures

Rating: ★★★

“No man can hold me down,” blares out the song over the end credits of The Visit. The message is clear – M. Night Shyamalan, the man who was proclaimed the next Spielberg (boy, I hope somebody got fired for that blunder) before going into the most public creative breakdown ever, thinks he’s back on form. Is he really? Well kinda, yeah.

Following film after film of drastically increasing diminishing returns, M. Night seems to have finally got the message and has dialled it back massively. With The Visit the budget is a fraction of his dull Will/Jaden Smith vehicle After Earth, the scale minuscule compared to the over-the-top The Last Airbender and we’ve got a cast of unknowns instead of Hollywood’s best and brightest slumming it woodenly for a paycheck. It’s the sort of restrained, back-to-basic filmmaking you wish more big budget »

Wes Craven Remembered by Bob Weinstein: "It Was a Joy to Listen to Him Talk About Fear"

31 August 2015 2:26 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

As head of Dimension Films, Bob Weinstein had to convince Wes Craven to direct Kevin Williamson's meta-horror screenplay, originally called 'Scary Movie,' which was released in 1996 as Scream. The movie, which grossed $173 million worldwide, gave birth to three sequels and a series on MTV. Looking back, Weinstein remembers Craven, whose name became synonymous with smart horror movies, as "a student of the art of that genre." I had never met Wes. I knew him from movies only, but I was a big fan of The Last House Left and A Nightmare on Elm Street scared the hell

Wes Craven: 4 trailblazing scary movies that redefined the horror genre

31 August 2015 5:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

For most horror filmmakers it's a near-impossible task to break the mould or serve audiences up with something they've never seen before.

Courteney Cox and Rose McGowan lead tributes to horror legend Wes Craven

Wes Craven, who passed away yesterday at the age of 76, was different. Over a career spanning five decades he put an immeasurable stamp on the genre on four separate occasions.

Here are four essential Craven horrors that blazed a trail and led others to follow.

1. The Last House on the Left (1972)

After giving up a career as a teacher, Craven moved to New York to break into the film industry. He worked in post-production before making "many hardcore X-rated films" (as revealed in documentary Inside Deep Throat) and shifting into low-budget horror with his 1972 debut The Last House on the Left.

Craven took inspiration from Ingmar Bergman's The Virgin Spring to craft a twisted, nasty »

Wes Craven, ‘Scream’ and ‘Nightmare on Elm Street’ Director, Dies at 76

30 August 2015 6:25 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Legendary horror director Wes Craven, known for the “Scream” films and the “Nightmare on Elm Street” series died Sunday in his Los Angeles home of brain cancer. He was 76.

Known for creating the iconic Freddy Krueger character from “Nightmare on Elm Street” and Ghostface in “Scream,” the versatile filmmaker also wrote and produced features, directed for television and wrote novels.

Craven’s first feature was the controversial shocker “The Last House on the Left,” which he wrote, directed an edited in 1972. He followed with the blackly comic “The Hills Have Eyes” and “Swamp Thing,” an early entry in the comic book genre.

He wrote and directed “A Nightmare on Elm Street,” with Johnny Depp, in 1984. The surreal slasher pic is credited with having started the “rubber reality” style of 1980s horror filmmakers.

“Serpent and the Rainbow,” in 1988, was based on non-fiction book about voodoo.

In Real World, 'Compton' Not (Anytime Soon) to Break Record as Highest-Grossing Domestic Hit Directed by Black Filmmaker

28 August 2015 4:18 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Straight Outta Compton' poster. Weekend box office: 'Straight Outta Compton' to beat weak competitors, but still far from being top blockbuster directed by black filmmaker If you thought last weekend was bad at the U.S. and Canada box office, you should see what's in store for this weekend, Aug. 28-30, '15. For starters, only one movie, F. Gary Gray's sleeper hit Straight Outta Compton, is expected to earn more than $10 million. The rest – and that includes Zac Efron, Owen Wilson, Pierce Brosnan, and the Power of (Christian) Prayer – will perform quite powerlessly indeed. In case Straight Outta Compton reaches the box office gurus' estimated $15 million, it will get close to the $140 million mark. Bear in mind there's no guarantee that will happen; despite basically no competition, the drop-off rate of Gray's hip hopping film was steeper than expected last weekend.

Wayne Brady: 'You have to earn the right to be dirty in comedy'

28 August 2015 1:06 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Wayne Brady has spent almost two decades proving his improvisational mettle and vaudevillian flair as a comic on "Whose Line Is It Anyway?", the host of "The Wayne Brady Show" (where he picked up two Daytime Emmys), and now as a voice actor on the Disney Channel series "Sofia the First." His family-safe version of comedy made him a fitting emcee for Charmin's "Keep It Clean Comedy Show," where New York high school students performed their cleanest versions of bathroom humor earlier this week. We caught up with Brady to discuss what makes for good clean humor, the worst cliches in comedy, and the challenges of taking over for Billy Porter in Broadway's "Kinky Boots" beginning November 21.  You just hosted a Charmin-sponsored event where kids aged 14-18 told their best clean versions of scatological jokes. That seems like a challenge. Were you optimistic about what the contestants could produce? Well, »

Anna Faris: Chris Pratt Infidelity Gossip Was "Weirdly Stinging"

12 August 2015 12:30 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Chris Pratt and Anna Faris are the golden couple of Hollywood -- but even they can't escape nasty infidelity rumors. Last month, one tabloid reported that the "Mom " star was worried her hot hubby would cheat on her with his "Passengers" costar, Jennifer Lawrence.  So ... is there any truth to the gossip? “This has been blindsiding to us," the "House Bunny" star told FOX411. “It has been a little devastating. For us, it was like, ‘What the heck!?’ We have an incredible relationship. It has been weirdly stinging.” "I had always kind of believed that part of the rumors of celebrity couples were sort of true because they had never been part of my life," the 38-year-old mom confessed. "I was like, 'Oh, maybe there's a kernel of truth to that.'" In case there was any doubt about the couple’s commitment to one another, Chris recently told "Entertainment Tonight »

Bob Hoskins' Wolverine, Will Smith's Superman and the other superhero films that might have been

9 August 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Over the last week, it looked like the Lynchian fever dream of a Gambit film might not come to pass, with star (and producer) Channing Tatum apparently on the brink of exiting the X-Men spinoff.

It turns out Tatum is still on board, but the incident got us thinking of some other superhero castings that nearly were but never will be:

(Nb Please take it as read that Jude Law was considered for all of these roles.)


Hugh Jackman has become so synonymous with the iconic X-Man that it's strange to think of anyone else taking on the role (even if they inevitably will). But before he had been cast, Russell Crowe was considered to play the angry Canadian mutant, and is credited with directing Bryan Singer's attention towards his fellow Aussie.

A-list hopeful Dougray Scott came even closer, and was actually cast in the role before shooting on Mission: Impossible 2 overran, »
