The Beguiled Review

19 June 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Sofia Coppola’s The Beguiled resembles a decadent pie stuffed with poison apples. Fluffy mounds of cream and a golden, crispity crust – Coppola’s atmospheric outer layer – entice hungry audiences on sight alone. Southern comfort reminds of firefly fields and womanly sophistication in the most innocent ways. Aromatic warmth wofts under noses, but each bite – the scenes that Coppola structures – brings upon the most delicious darkness. Notes of sweetness (a child’s newfound friendship) and spice (the fatal attraction that brews) intoxicate with pleasurable trappings. Coppola’s savory four-star treat is an achievement in both tone and repercussion, and apologies for the metaphor, but all its best scenes play out during mealtime – my madness is with good reason, rest assured.

Ms. Coppola’s 2017 “thrill-ish-er” is both a remake of Don Siegel’s 1971 caper and an adaptation of Thomas Cullinan’s novel, with Colin Farrell stepping in as wounded Union soldier John McBurney. »

Michael Bay Reflects on His Career as He Receives Hands and Feet Honor

23 May 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

On May 23, Michael Bay will have his hands and feet encased in cement outside the iconic Tcl Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, alongside classic stars from Marilyn Monroe to Meryl Streep.  While Bay is thrilled, he does have one hesitation. “I just remember as a kid, going to see the handprints and I always thought the people who got this honor were so much older,” he says with a laugh.”

For the record, Bay is a youthful 52, but it’s a credit to his career that his accomplishments over the past 20 years have put him in the ranks of his mentors Steven Spielberg and super producer Jerry Bruckheimer, both of whose imprints are also in the Chinese forecourt. And it’s full circle for Bay, a native Angeleno who  discovered he wanted to be a director at that very theater.

At age 15, Bay was working at Lucasfilm, filing storyboards for “Raiders of the Lost Ark. »

Review: Folk Hero & Funny Guy, Great Performances Mark the Arrival of a Remarkable Filmmaking Talent

11 May 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

One of the key ingredients for a successful film is a good title. And one thing that makes for a good title is one that is perfectly descriptive of the movie within.   Jeff Grace's witty, diverting feature debut Folk Hero & Funny Guy has such a title, which is a major selling point. Much like, say, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre - to choose a random example - you don't need to wonder what, or in this case who, you will encounter when you see this title in a film festival catalog or a newspaper listing. Luckily, however, Folk Hero & Funny Guy has a lot more going for it than the convenient thematic shorthand of its title.    The "folk hero" is Jason (Wyatt...

Summer Horror Preview: 10 Movies to Scare Away That Summertime Sadness

Hounds of Love,” May 12

Less than two weeks after being presented an award by IndieWire’s own Eric Kohn at the Overlook Film Festival, writer/director Ben Young’s latest is headed to theaters. The system works! An Aussie abduction thriller, “Hounds of Love” stars Emma Booth as a young woman held captive by a deranged couple whose increasingly fractured relationship represents her only chance of escape. If there’s one thing the “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” opening credits have taught us, it’s that females are strong as hell and she’ll probably make it out alive.

Drive-In Dust Offs: Eaten Alive (1976)

29 April 2017 11:13 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

For me, the most interesting thing about horror maestro Tobe Hooper’s storied career is he takes chances. He always swings big; from his landmark second feature The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974), to Lifeforce (1985), to even The Mangler (1995), he pushes the genre into the absurd through concept and execution, audiences be damned. It’s an admirable trait in a filmmaker, and one that’s on full display with Eaten Alive (1976), probably his most bizarre film to date. (Which is saying a lot.)

After a limited stateside release in October of ’76, EA was given a wide release in May of ’77 by Virgo International Pictures to theatres and drive-ins across the land. The start of the ever undulating arc of Hooper’s career, it was met with a resounding “Whaaaat?” by the public and critics alike. This was not the follow up to the cultural explosion that was Chainsaw people were expecting. And to be honest, »

‘The Bad Batch’ Trailer: Ana Lily Amirpour Dares Us to Find Comfort in the Wasteland

13 April 2017 9:53 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Neon is off to a strong start. After enjoying a successful debut with the Anne Hathaway–starring “Colossal,” which opened in theaters last Friday, the newest distributor in town has released the trailer for Ana Lily Amirpour’s “The Bad Batch.” The writer/director’s sophomore effort has earned comparisons to both “Mad Max” and “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre,” apparently living up to the strangeness of “A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night” and then some. Watch below.

Beginning with an ominous bird perched atop a “find comfort” sign, the trailer introduces us to our one-legged heroine (Suki Waterhouse), a group of imposing body-builders led by Jason “Khal Drogo” Momoa, a sagacious Keanu Reeves and everyone else trying to eke out an existence in this post-apocalyptic wasteland.

Biopics vs. Their Fictional Counterparts

11 April 2017 11:01 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Some people’s lives are best told truthfully, others more loosely.

In one corner, we have Rocky, the iconic Best Picture-winning boxing movie starring Sylvester Stallone as the made-up Rocky Balboa. In the other corner, we have Chuck, an upcoming biopic starring Liev Schreiber as real-life boxer Chuck Wepner. The latter primarily depicts the 1975 bout between Wepner and Muhammad Ali, which inspired Stallone to write the script for Rocky. He’s since tried to downplay the connection, especially after being sued by Wepner, but it’s close enough to being a film a clef as any.

Chuck received mostly positive reviews when it played the big film festivals last fall, but it’s unlikely to become the phenomenon, let alone Oscar darling, that Rocky was. Its legacy surely won’t be as lasting, in part because true biopics don’t tend to get sequels. There are a lot of benefits to fictionalized accounts of real events and »

5 Reasons Why We’re Living In a Golden Age of Genre Films

8 April 2017 7:51 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Yes, it’s only April and there have already been a few horror movie duds, from the lifeless sequel “Rings” to the laughable “The Bye Bye Man,” but genre fans have other reasons to celebrate. The first quarter of 2017 has been filled with exciting developments for horror, science fiction and supernatural storytelling, with more promising twists around the corner. Of course, anyone watching the variety of international genre cinema showcased at film festivals around the world was never despairing in the first place, but there are years in which few strong genre movies cross over to a mainstream audience, while plenty of subpar examples cram the multiplexes.

This is not one of those times. From exciting commercial successes to new venues for showcasing first-rate work, 2017 is crammed with reasons why we’re living in a golden age of genre cinema. Here are a few of them.

‘The Asylum’ DVD Review

Stars: Jonathan Rosenthal, Adrian Voo, Bo Linton, Caroline Attwood, Christine Springett, Patrick Edward Wynne, Kathinka van Putten, Omar Hansen, Athena Baumeister, Velta Moore, David Neff | Written and Directed by Filip Maciejewicz

Another film released under another generic title that will please another supermarket buyer, The Asylum first debuted on the Us film festival circuit  – under its original title of Seventy-Nine – way back in 2013; and yet still remains unreleased on any physical format in the Us. Now the film makes it UK DVD debut with little fanfare from Lightning Pictures (aka Point Blank), whose last release, Leatherface, will be more renown for trying to con UK audiences rather than for being a good slasher movie. Surprise, surprise we’ve already had a film called The Asylum released on DVD here, back in 2015, from director Marcus Nispel; who directed The Texas Chainsaw Massacre in 2003 – and Leatherface is actually the title of the »

Resident Evil 7: Capcom explains The Shining's influence

29 March 2017 11:17 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Matthew Byrd Mar 30, 2017

The Shining's two Jacks served as the basis for one of Resident Evil's greatest villains.

When citing Resident Evil 7's film influences, people quickly rattle off names like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Evil Dead. While each of those films - and more like them - certainly helped to shape Resident Evil 7's tone and environment, the game's developers looked beyond the grindhouse when it came time to design the principal characters.

In the latest episode of the Resident Evil 7 development documentary series, scenario director Morimasa Sato names another legendary horror film as one of his biggest influences.

Re-enter The Void! The greatest 80s throwback horror movies you need to watch

29 March 2017 5:20 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Sean Wilson

As if last year’s nostalgia-infused sensation Stranger Things didn’t make it clear enough, the world is currently going mad for all things eighties. Not the big hair or the shellsuits, mind – rather woozy synthpop, blood-rich neon and anything related to the heyday of creepy body horror.

With Jeremy Gillespie and Steven Kostanski’s splattery new gorefest The Void out now, one that gleefully mashes up loving homages to H.P. Lovecraft John Carpenter, David Cronenberg and more, here are the essential throwback horror movies that you need to watch in preparation.

The House of the Devil

Writer/director Ti West is at the forefront of recent revival horror and this deliciously slow-burning spooker remains one of his best. Drawing on the ‘Satanic panic’ craze that swept America during the eighties, it’s the unbearably suspenseful story of a young woman (Jocelin Donahue) whose babysitting job at a creaking, »
