11 Times Video Games Did Horror Better Than Movies

18 August 2014 1:51 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Kojima Productions

Horror is something that comes in a whole bunch of different flavours; from volume-spiking jump-scares to grotesque imagery that will haunt you deep into the night, or just an over-reliance on gore to turn your stomach by default.

All of them transfer over to gaming perfectly, as although the medium of film challenges you to watch the events unfold on screen, gaming puts you directly in the shoes of that innocent person exploring a dilapidated old mansion, or the one who has to delve deeper into the depths of somewhere you’d otherwise stay away from just to retrieve an object to forward the story.

For many the first experience of having their horror-cherries popped would have been with either the first Silent Hill or Resident Evil games. Both operating in a manner that’s become known as ‘tank controls’ where your characters could only rotate before heading forward or back, »

Mel Gibson: 5 Awesome Performances And 5 That Sucked

15 August 2014 7:13 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Lionsgate

Although some heavily-publicized issues in his personal life have damaged his reputation almost beyond repair, Mel Gibson had long established his Hollywood legacy before his high-profile meltdowns. One of the biggest movie stars in the world throughout the 1980′s and 90′s whose movies have earned over $3.7bn at the box office, Gibson is an Academy Award-winning director that is also responsible for The Passion of the Christ, the highest-grossing independent film ever made.

Regardless of what people think of his personal beliefs and issues, there is no denying that on the top of his game Mel Gibson is one of the most magnetic and charismatic screen presences in the industry, not to mention incredibly versatile. Although best known for his work in big-budget action movies and violent thrillers, Gibson has also done Shakespeare with Hamlet, romantic comedy with What Women Want, science fiction with Signs and of course, voiced stop-motion poultry in Chicken Run. »

First Look At Zombie Drama Maggie Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger

12 August 2014 7:59 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

“A Midwestern farmer stays by the side of his beloved teenage daughter even as she slowly turns into a cannibalistic zombie, in this daring, genre-bending debut feature.” Definitely a big departure for Arnie, so it'll be interesting to see how he fares. Maggie will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival next month (September 4 to 14) and also stars Abigail Breslin (Zombieland, Signs, Little Miss Sunshine) and Joely Richardson (Event Horizon, Girl With The Dragon Tattoo). »

Wayward Pines' M. Night Shyamalan, Cast Talk Fox's Eerie New Event Series

8 August 2014 7:36 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

There may — or may not — be a twist at the end of this video interview with Wayward Pines‘ executive producer M. Night Shyamalan and the cast of his upcoming Fox event series.

After all, Shyamalan made a name for himself writing and directing gotcha! films like The Sixth Sense and Signs.

And the fact that his new cast — which includes Carla Gugino (Political Animals), Toby Jones (The Girl), Melissa Leo (The Fighter), Matt Dillon (There’s Something About Mary), Shannyn Sossamon (Mistresses) and Charlie Tahan (Law & Order: Svu) — likens the thriller to Twin Peaks and Twilight Zone indicates that the »

This new trailer for "Wayward Pines," heading to Fox in 2015, has a suitably spooky, "Twin Peaks"-ish vibe, and it's certainly chock-full of the type of stars we used to only see in the movies. It's a good time for horror on TV for sure! Check it out, and let us know what you think.

Imagine the perfect American town... beautiful homes, manicured lawns, children playing safely in the streets. Now imagine never being able to leave. You have no communication with the outside world. You think you're going insane. You must be in Wayward Pines.

Based on the best-selling novel Pines by Blake Crouch and brought to life by suspenseful storyteller M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense, Signs), "Wayward Pines" is the intense new mind-bending event thriller evocative of the classic cult hit “Twin Peaks.”

‘E.T.’ Creative Team Reunites as Steven Spielberg Signs On to Direct Roald Dahl’s ‘The Bfg’

25 April 2014 7:32 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

I’m not too familiar with Roald Dahl‘s book “The Bfg.” When everyone else seemed to be reading it in middle school, I always had this idea, based on the cover illustration depicting a very large man holding a tiny girl, that the initials stood for “Big Fucking Guy.” Really, though, it’s all about a “Big Friendly Giant” — the only friendly one, in fact – who kidnaps then befriends that tiny girl, who isn’t really tiny but just normal sized. There are some other giants in the story, too, and the new pals aim to stop them from eating people. The Queen of England becomes involved. Honestly, I’m just going by the Wikipedia page and book cover synopsis, so I’ll stop there before I mess anything up or spoil the ending. The important thing is that they’re making another movie of the book, this one live-action. And »

Tribeca: Rory Culkin on Giving His Everything to 'Gabriel' and Why He Always Views His Own Films

22 April 2014 11:16 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Ever since memorably appearing as Mel Gibson's son in M. Night Shyamalan's 2002 hit "Signs," Rory Culkin has shied away from big projects, favoring indies with roles he can sink his teeth into. He had a great run as a teen actor, impressing in "Mean Creek," "Down in the Valley" and "Lymelife." Now 24, Culkin shows he has what it takes to lead a film in Lou Howe's assured feature film debut "Gabriel" (currently screening at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival). In "Gabriel," Culkin stars as the titular character, a young man struggling with mental issues in the wake of his father's suicide. It's a performance that Indiewire's Eric Kohn praised as Culkin's "best." "Appearing in every scene," Kohn wrote, "the actor imbues Gabriel with a wily attitude; while recovering from a meltdown that precedes the start of the story, he's always on the brink of another one."

The 20 Best Summer Blockbusters of All Time: 'The Sixth Sense'

14 April 2014 12:54 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

In the post-Lady in the Water era, it’s tough to remember how bonkers people once went for The Sixth Sense. But a mere millennium ago, M. Night Shyamalan’s atmospheric thriller was the toast of audiences and critics alike — a box office smash, a cultural touchstone, a freakin’ Best Picture nominee. Not only at the MTV Movie Awards, but also at the Oscars!

How did a simple, potentially gimmicky ghost story capture our hearts and minds so fully? Easy: because despite the shadow hindsight casts upon it, The Sixth Sense is a great movie. Its brief 107-minute run »

M. Night Shyamalan’s Sundowning Casting Revealed

24 March 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

M. Night Shyamalan is a historic filmmaker. He is, at once, the man that pulled off perhaps the biggest cinematic trick of modern times with The Sixth Sense, while also being the man that managed to make the first real Will Smith box office failure, After Earth. Neither of these things are easy to achieve, but Shyamalan boasts both those feathers in his cap. While fans of his tremendous early work have been patiently waiting, he has yet to deliver a movie of sufficient high quality to de-odorise the stench of his 2008 film, The Happening. M. Night Shyamalan – and his audience – needs his groove back, and that’s exactly what we’re all hoping for with his new horror film, Sundowning.

Unsurprisingly, for a movie written and directed by the master of the epic film twist, plot details are closely guarded. The title gives us a clue, however, as it »

Is Abigail Breslin This Generation’s Ultimate Final Girl?

11 March 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The “Known For” widget on a performer’s IMDb page isn’t perfect. It occasionally spits out results that are almost patently wrong, but the more current someone’s career is, the better and more spot-on they are. Case in point: Abigail Breslin, whose IMDb page tells us that she is “Known For” films like Little Miss Sunshine, Zombieland, and Signs. Despite completely spacing that Breslin is the H2O-happy kiddo in Signs (a personal problem, surely), this is a fully agreeable assessment of the most popular and mainstream titles on her resume. And that would be fine if Breslin was doing those kind of films today – Little Ms. Sunshine? – but the former child star has recently started loading up her schedule with some very different fare. In short, it’s chockfull of horror titles, from the little-seen (Haunter) to the hotly anticipated (Maggie), establishing Breslin as an offbeat pick for the genre’s newest scream queen »

‘Perfect Sisters’ Plot The Perfect Murder In New Trailer

11 March 2014 12:17 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Abigail Breslin and Georgie Henley star alongside one another as the Perfect Sisters. Based on the true story of Beth and Sandra Andersen, the films sees two teenage girls raised by an alcoholic mother. With their mother returning to the bottle and taking a new abusive lover, life becomes even harder so the girls plot with their friends how to execute the perfect murder. The girls were later sentenced to 10 years in prison and were released in 2008 under new names.

The film looks to be a very tricky piece, and that’s no bad thing. Obviously people will empathise with the girls’ situation, but the fact it seems to show the teenagers enjoying the idea also brings about many questions. The trailer seems to show a great mix of drama and horror, which often go hand-in-hand. Stanley M. Brooks makes this his directorial debut after many years producing. The casting also seems very daring, »

Jason Collins Signs 10-Day Contract With Brooklyn Nets, Becomes First Openly Gay Player Active In NBA

23 February 2014 9:00 PM, PST | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Jason Collins became the first openly gay player in the NBA over the weekend when he signed a 10-day contract with the Brooklyn Nets and played in Sunday night’s game against the La Lakers.

Collins, 35, came out in May 2013, after a previously established 12-year career in the NBA. As a free agent, Collins decided that he wanted to come out following the 2011 NBA lockout.

“I’ll lead by example and show that gay players are no different from straight ones,” Collins wrote in his Sports Illustrated column announcing his sexuality.

Jason Collins Signs 10-Day Contract With Brooklyn Nets

At the time, Collins had just finished playing a season with the Boston Celtics and Washington Wizards. Sunday was his first time back on the professional court since last April. Now, almost one year later, Collins has signed a 10-day contract with the Brooklyn Nets, where he spent his first six NBA seasons, »

Top Takeaways From Variety Critic Justin Chang’s Reddit Ama

18 February 2014 9:08 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Variety’s chief film critic Justin Chang participated in a Reddit Ama this morning, where he answered questions ranging from his favorite movie to how he avoids tabloid noise surrounding celebrities and filmmakers. Below are five things Chang said about his life as a film critic:

Have you ever had second thoughts on a review after publication? Have you ever come around to different view about a movie you panned or raved?

I don’t think I’ve ever had a dramatic reversal on an opinion that made its way into print, but I do recall having a very bizarre aversion to “School of Rock” when I saw it more than 10 years ago, and since then it’s become one of my favorite [Richard] Linklater movies. (Hey, sometimes you just have a bad night.)

How did you wind up writing film reviews? Did you start as a filmmaker yourself or did »

M. Night Shyamalan And Bruce Willis Will Reteam For Labor Of Love

29 January 2014 11:49 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The past decade hasn’t been too kind to filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan, who broke out back in 1999 with psychological thriller The Sixth Sense and has been on a pretty consistent downward spiral since then. Unbreakable and Signs aside, Shyamalan has turned out some pretty awful movies. Moviegoers really didn’t take to the “the trees are attacking” twist in his horror-thriller The Happening, Nickelodeon viewers certainly have him on their hit-list after the horrific, can’t-look-away train-wreck that was The Last Airbender, and his latest film, After Earth, just earned the director six Razzie nominations, including ones for Worst Picture, Worst Director and Worst Screenplay. And so, going back to a simpler time for his next project likely sounds pretty good to Shyamalan right now.

Working from a script that he sold to Fox way back in 1993, Shyamalan will direct his Sixth Sense star Bruce Willis in the drama Labor of Love. »
