Saturday’s best TV: Strictly Come Dancing; Later with Jools Holland 25th birthday show

4 hours ago | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The new Strictly couples dance for the first time, while Jools welcomes stars to the Royal Albert Hall for an anniversary knees-up. Plus: Swedish crime thriller Black Lake gets stranger still

Due north again for two more episodes of things going violently bump in the night in a style that mixes up elements of The Shining with the Final Destination franchise. And Black Lake does this very effectively, so long as you can accept that, hey, of course some friends would stay in a remote murder house after things start getting strange; weirdness moreover that seems linked to yucky conjunctivitis-like symptoms. Tonight, Jessan spirals out of control. Jonathan Wright

Film Review: ‘Friend Request’

21 September 2017 10:06 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

We live in an era of second-screen-watching. It’s not just the theatrical experience that is being increasingly compromised by cell-phone addiction, but a majority of home viewers reportedly divide their attention between their TV screens, smartphones and laptops, too. It’s somewhat ironic, then, that Simon Verhoeven’s “Friend Request,” a disposable horror film destined to make more impact on recommendation algorithms and DVD bargain-buckets than the box office, purportedly cautions us against the evils of Facebook (or a Facebook-like site that remains unnamed for legal purposes) yet actually instills a longing for distraction, an urgent desire to share some funny cat memes with an old school friend. We might lament declining attention spans in general, but more chilling than anything in “Friend Request” is the idea that anyone’s whole attention could possibly be absorbed by so flimsy and forgettable a film, one that seems made with the sole aim of being perfectly adequate background »

Become the Grim Reaper as Death Coming enters Steam Early Access

Did you ever watch Final Destination and plot out a much more grisly end for the poor souls in the film, before the Grim Reaper sprung its giant game of Mousetrap on the soon to be dead?  If your answer is, “Yes!”, then Death Coming – from indie developer Next Studio – is exactly for you as you’re going to pick up both scythe & robe and become said Grim Reaper.  However, if you answered, “No!” then move along, nothing to see here…

Death Coming is a pixel art non-linear puzzle game where each level has multiple way to progress. Targets can be killed in a variety of ways, and you can use a single object to reap multiple souls if you plan and time your ‘execution’ just right.

Twin Peaks Finale Recap: It's Curtains

3 September 2017 7:03 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Before I start my final Twin Peaks recap, let’s get one thing clear: I love Twin Peaks. And I loved this new season. And I loved the finale. I remember one hot June evening back in 1991 when the show suddenly ended on a dramatic cliffhanger and then was (seemingly) gone forever. And people hated that finale! It was so polarizing! And then we all turned against the movie. And yet…

Twenty-five years later, here we are, once again. The fans are divided. Twin Peaks has split them in two. People are either furious, or rapturous. And I am the latter. »

Lore: trailer for Amazon's creepy new anthology series

29 August 2017 11:09 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Joseph Baxter Sep 14, 2017

Here's the first proper trailer for Amazon's new series Lore, which is set to give real-life scary stories the true crime treatment.

Amazon’s television adaptation of Aaron Mahnke’s popular podcast Lore is creeping up on audiences with horror-inducing intrigue in time for Halloween. The series, manifesting as a 6-episode horror anthology, will showcase the podcast’s accounts of real-life scary stories, urban legends and other assorted folklore, using a mix of animation, live-action and archival footage.

Here's the first full trailer for the series...

Podcast creator Aaron Mahnke narrates the clip and, like in his podcast, the evidence he presents in the show will no doubt serve as the chilling context.

Expect to hear and see tales about vampires, werewolves, spirits, changelings and, as notably featured in the promotional material, a creepy doll given to a young boy that purportedly came alive with evil purposes »

‘Heathers’ First Teaser: The Infinitely Quotable Cult Classic Gets a 21st Century Television Reboot

28 August 2017 7:56 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It’s a brave new world; it was only a matter of time before we got a brave new “Heathers.” The cult classic that inspired a generation of teenage slackers and weirdos is getting a television reboot, and it’s switching things up quite a lot from the looks of this first teaser released on Instagram, where all the aspiring Heathers hang out these days.

The original “Heathers” starred Winona Ryder and Christian Slater as kindred spirits who team up to take down the popular girls, who are all named Heather. Released in 1988, the movie’s pitch black comedy and dry humor stood out against the more wholesome losers of John Hughes’ high school comedies. In the reboot, the central trio has been updated to include a genderqueer person named Heath (Brendan Scannell), a black lesbian (Jasmine Mathews) and an overweight girl (Melanie Field).

Death Note Review

25 August 2017 3:02 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Before wrestling with Godzilla vs. Kong, director Adam Wingard accepted the gargantuan challenge of helming Netflix’s American Death Note adaptation. Regional relocation is usually a kiss of death for cross-culture products (see: Ghost In The Shell), but Tsugumi Ohba (writer) and Takeshi Obata (illustrator), who created the cult-beloved Death Note manga, were quick to offer praise. “We love the film,” Wingard was told after a private screening scheduled just for Ohba and Obata. Outrage avoided, honor respected. The director even describes himself as an “otaku,” and it’s that obsession with the source material that sets up his (or, more appropriately Netflix’s) Death Note franchise on a platform of gory devotion and demonic influence. It may be a bit unbalanced, but it’s still worthy of Ryuk’s introduction.

Nat Wolff stars as Light Turner, a brainy high-school loner who happens upon a “magic” book. Scrawled across the front are two words, »

Horror Channel FrightFest Review – Death Note (2017)

24 August 2017 3:04 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Death Note, 2017

Directed by Adam Wingard

Starring Nat WolffLakeith Stanfield, Willem Dafoe, Margaret Qualley, Shea Whigham

Synopsis:

Light Turner, a bright student, stumbles across a mystical notebook that has the power to kill any person whose name he writes in it. Light decides to launch a secret crusade to rid the streets of criminals. Soon, the student-turned-vigilante finds himself pursued by a famous detective known only by the alias L.

Adapting an anime/manga to life-action as heralded as many successful results as video game adaptations at this point. Just earlier this year we had the box office bomb and critically-derided Ghost in the Shell, and the recent news of a live-action Cowboy Bebop wasn’t met with the greatest of reaction. But how will Adam Wingard hold up with his American re-imagining of Death Note?

This Us take on Death Note follows a similar set up to the »

Film Review: Nat Wolff in ‘Death Note’ on Netflix

24 August 2017 3:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Manga fans already know the drill, but for the sake of newcomers, Netflix’s new “Death Note” adaptation refreshes the story of a sinister leather-bound book that gives its keeper the power to kill anyone on earth, simply by writing that person’s name and the desired cause of death in its pages. The book comes with a crazy number of rules, dizzyingly complicated to keep straight, and also with a freaky death god named Ryuk, who looks like a demonic, Tim Burton-ized version of Willem Dafoe (so it stands to reason that they cast Willem Dafoe to play him).

As wish fulfillment goes, “Death Note” is about as dark as it gets, indulging the fantasy of taking bloody vengeance on the high school bully, or punishing the sleazy local crime boss who murdered your mom (perhaps a bit less typical, in terms of your average teen grudge). But there’s a sinister appeal there, especially »

‘Death Note’ Review: Adam Wingard’s Netflix Adaptation Is a Whitewashed Waste of Time

21 August 2017 6:59 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Adapting “Death Note” into a feature-length American movie was always a colossally bad idea — Tsugumi Ohba’s manga ran 108 chapters, and there’s a good reason why the only decent riff on the original was an anime series that ran 19 hours — so neglecting to include Japanese-American actors among the top-billed cast just made things that much worse. It was a bad decision on top of a festering pile of bad decisions, but it was also the kind of mistake that reveals the wrongheadedness of an entire project.

Whitewashing is never a purely aesthetic act; it’s always an indication of a deeper rot. In this case, it pointed toward an inability or unwillingness to meaningfully engage with the source material. The only reason to take such a uniquely Japanese story and transplant it to Seattle is to explore how its thorny moral questions might inspire different answers in an American context, »

Drive-In Dust Offs: Psychic Killer (1975)

5 August 2017 10:59 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Revenge films have been around for a very long time; one can look to The Virgin Spring (1960), Straw Dogs (1971), or Death Wish (1974) for their rise from serious drama to movies of a more exploitive nature. Psychic Killer (1975) adds a unique twist to the tale by having astral projection as a means to the violent ends. Quirky and laden with creative deaths, it very much embraces its weirdness, providing a fun carpet ride for the whole family (at least according to its mind-boggling PG rating).

Released stateside in December by Avco Embassy Pictures, Psychic Killer, aka The Kirlian Force, only cost $250,000 and came and went like a phantom in the night. Critics paid it no mind either, and it was relegated to video store shelves and gas station rentals. On the surface, that’s understandable; a B cast with a former actor turned fairly unproven B director (Ray DantonDeathmaster), and »

Video: 5 Best Teenage Slasher Movies

1 August 2017 9:42 AM, PDT | The Cultural Post | See recent The Cultural Post news »

Everyone loves a good slasher movie. It’s got everything a movie lover wants- dumb teenagers with hormones and serial killers who are bent on finding them. Plus, lots and lots of bad decisions. It’s like a game of cat and mouse only most of the time the mouse loses. With that in mind, we would like to share with you five of the best slasher movies around.

5. I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997)

While this movie didn’t get many favorable reviews, Jim Gillespie’s I Know What You Did Last Summer has all the elements of a slasher film. Clueless teenagers and a relentless killer. Loosely adapted from a Lois Duncan novel, Kevin Williamson’s script flips the hit and run incident from a small boy to a fishermen. There was a lot of things that worked in this movie-particularly the attractive cast and the inspiration »

Exclusive Interview with Wish Upon director John R. Leonetti

Luke Owen sits down with Wish Upon director John R. Leonetti

John R. Leonetti has had an incredible career behind the camera. While he may not be an instantly recognisable name, he has worked on some iconic movies, like Poltergeist, Weird Science, Commando, Child’s Play 3, Hot Shots! Part Deux, The Mask, Mortal Kombat, The Butterfly Effect, The Conjuring and many more. From his hard work behind the camera and passion for filmmaking, he was promoted to the director’s chair on sequels and spin-offs Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, The Butterfly Effect 2 and Annabelle. “All the way back when I was an assistant cameraman, way, way back when I was twenty years old – which was about 40 years ago – I was working on the Dukes of Hazzard, one of the directors took me under his wing,” Leonetti tells me. “I don’t know why, but he said, ‘John you’re going »

Drive-In Dust Offs: Sole Survivor (1983)

29 July 2017 10:02 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

In retrospect, Carnival of Souls (1962) certainly cast a long and deep shadow over the horror genre; not for general audiences at the time, where it ended up relegated to the bargain bins of the public domain for decades. But horror frequently pays it forward, and filmmakers find inspiration in the lost and obscure. Take the debut from Thom Eberhardt, Sole Survivor (1983), an oasis of cool originality in a genre that was drying out in the slasher sands.

Given a limited release in December, Eberhardt used the meager $350,000 budget to his advantage, crafting a film filled with an eerie calm and paying it forward himself by inspiring Final Destination (2000) and It Follows (2014). Sometimes big shadows are cast from small sources, and Sole Survivor has earned its particular darkness.

Our film opens with over the hill actress/psychic Karla (Caren LarkeyGet Out) predicting a plane crash. On that very plane is »
