Sundance 2016 Review: The Blackout Experiments is a Surprisingly Intense and Emotional Experience

1 February 2016 10:13 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

I really had no idea what to expect going into The Blackout Experiments, all I knew was that it was a documentary centered around the popular experiential “Blackout” attraction that has taken over Los Angeles and New York City during the last few years, and that was about it. As it turns out, the project from director Rich Fox ended up being so much more than just another talking heads piece about two guys who love to torture folks and push them to their mental limits.

To me, The Blackout Experiments evolved into a surprisingly transformative journey for the participants, exploring their connections to Blackout and demonstrating just how the haunt has become something more personal to many who have dared to take its challenge.

I’ll admit that it was my own morbid curiosity with Blackout that made me interested to see just how far The Blackout Experiments would »

Sundance Film Review: ‘Operation Avalanche’

29 January 2016 11:36 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Operation Avalanche” isn’t the first time director Matt Johnson and Owen Williams have played “themselves,” although it’s hard to imagine a more inventive use of the duo’s reality-blurring faux-doc sensibility — which previously earned them top honors at Slamdance 2013 for “The Dirties.” Pretending to be the film crew that faked the Apollo 11 moon landing, Johnson and company have fabricated an elaborate, period-styled backstory on how a collection of Ivy League film geeks were recruited by the CIA to convince the world that America got there first. Acquired by Lionsgate eight months before its Park City premiere, this wild, borderline illegal stunt (for which the improv-ready filmmakers “infiltrated” locations such as Nasa and Shepperton Studios in character) delivers big time on its crazy premise, launching the careers of its renegade crew in the process.

Interview: Zombie Cop’s Jera Sky!

Remember when I told ya about the new zom-com Zombie Cop a while back? Of course you do, ‘cuz I’m me and we all know the Coffin Club worships my every word like some sort of non-drink-mix-ingesting Jonestown cult (we prefer absinthe, as you know)! Well, wouldn’t ya know it, the zombie cop in question, Jera Sky, just popped into the Crypt o’ Xiii for a lil’ jaw sesh with yours cruelly!

Your Guide to Sundance 2016 Horror Movies

20 January 2016 9:00 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Horror fans are often unfairly characterized as having narrow tastes, but the truth is that it takes a a fair amount of research and a broad perspective to discover unique terrors on-screen. Take, for example, the Sundance Film Festival, which opens this week in Utah. While the festival is primarily known as a showcase for new American independent features, it's also served to boost the prospects of select horror movies. Perhaps because there are relatively few horror titles in the program each year, the good ones tend to get a disproportionate amount of attention, stretching back to The Blair Witch Project (Sundance 1999) and Saw (Sundance 2004). The last couple of years has seen a glut of good movies benefiting from a Sundance boost, including A Girl Walks Home Alone at...

15 Least Scary Horror Movies Since 2000

9 January 2016 1:04 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Paramount

If nothing else, the golden age of exploitation allowed horror filmmakers the freedom to push the envelope, though the innovation didn’t come from the major studios but from the independent sector. Produced for chump change, movies like Night Of The Living Dead, The Last House On The Left, The Texas Chainsaw and Halloween tore up the rule book and set the genre on a new course.

That all ended in the 1980s with the collapse of the exploitation circuit and the dominance of multiplexes, which the studios rushed to fill with unchallenging uniform product. There was nothing remotely terrifying, for instance, about watching Jason Voorhees go to Manhattan or seeing Freddy Krueger attack a victim with the bon mots “Kung Fu this, bitch!”

Every success launched a cottage industry of clones: Scream began the trend for “hip” horror, The Blair Witch Project kick-started the “found footage” subgenre and »

Starz Targets Latino Viewers with Hispanic-Themed Development Projects

8 January 2016 9:04 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Starz is looking to boost its profile with Latino viewers. The premium cabler has set three development prospects revolving around Hispanic themes and creative auspices that include Televisa USA and “The Blair Witch Project’s” Haxan Films.

The focus on Hispanic audiences comes after Starz has found broad success with shows rooted in African-American experiences, including the drama “Power,” which ranks as Starz’s most-watched original series, and comedy “Survivor’s Remorse.”

Starz CEO Chris Albrecht has been vocal about the void in premium cable programming featuring diverse casts and creative teams. The Hispanic initiative was unveiled Friday morning during Starz’s presentation at the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour in Pasadena, Calif.

Starz has teamed with Televisa USA, an offshoot of Mexican media giant Grupo Televisa, to develop an English-language rendition of telenovela “El Malefico,” about a powerful businessman who makes a pact with the devil. The »
