More Brains at The Hi-Pointe Midnights This Weekend! – Return Of The Living Dead

7 July 2014 8:38 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“Send more cops!”

Return Of The Living Dead screens this Friday and Saturday nights (July 11th and 12th) at midnight at the Hi-Pointe Theater (1005 McCausland Ave, St. Louis) as part of Destroy the Brain’s Late Night Grindhouse series.

Return Of The Living Dead (1984) was a spin-off of the Living Dead series that resulted from the sharing of copyright between George Romero and Night Fo The Living Dead co-writer John Russo. While Romero went to continue the narrative with Dawn Of The Dead and Day Of The Dead, both bleak social satire/horrors, Russo undertook a humorous and far more chaotic reprise of the original story. Russo wisely teamed with writer/director Dan O’ Bannon (a St. Louis native!), who pulled out all the stops for one gut-buster of an entertaining horror film. From a strip tease in a graveyard by Scream Queen Linnea Quigley to a massive showdown between the zombies and the law, »

True Blood Recap: The Town That Feared Sundown

30 June 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Depending on your mental problems, everyone has a different flavor of horror. Is home invasion your horror of choice? What about boogeymen? Psycho-ex stalkers? Abominations of science? Demonic possession? Whatever you choose says a lot about your subconscious fears. Personally, I love broad daylight, nobody-is-safe horror. The kind where even if you're doing everything right, certain death looms around every corner. Think Dawn of the Dead or The Mist or Final Destination, or even the psychological daylight of Scream 2's cold open, when Jada Pinkett is murdered in plain sight of a crowded movie theater but nobody helps her. True Blood has embraced nearly every subgenre of horror over the years, but typically it reserves its scares for nighttime, when the monsters come out to, uh, mash. "I Found You" was different, though, since it was the rare True Blood episode that took place entirely in the daylight. And wow:nightmares. »

John Green’s ‘Looking For Alaska’ In Development, Sarah Polley To Adapt?

25 June 2014 1:33 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Fans of John Green had to wait a long time to get any of his films to the big screen, but it looks like our birthdays and Christmases might just come at once! It has been revealed that Paramount Pictures are currently developing Green’s debut novel Looking For Alaska, and is eyeing up actress/director Sarah Polley to pen and possibly direct the project.

Looking For Alaska tells the story of a teenager Miles Halter who is sent away to boarding school and learns about living life on the edge from his beautiful and mysterious roommate Alaska Young. While Polley has starred in such films as Dawn Of The Dead, Go and The Sweet Hereafter, she has been causing a buzz with her film projects, even earning an Academy Award nomination in Best Adapted Screenplay for her movie Away From Her.

But with the success of The Fault In Our Stars, »

Sarah Polley Will Adapt John Green’s Looking For Alaska

25 June 2014 12:05 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After scribing and sitting behind the camera on indie Take This Waltz and documentary Stories We Tell, it may be time for actress/writer/director Sarah Polley to hit the big time. Deadline reports that Paramount is eying her to adapt Looking for Alaska, working from the novel by The Fault in Our Stars writer John Green.

Apparently, Polley, who received an Oscar nomination for her debut screenplay Away from Her, made a strong pitch to Paramount, which led to studio execs signing her to adapt. Polley may also direct the film, but that hasn’t yet been determined. Though the actress starred in Dawn of the Dead and Splice, writing and directing has taken priority for her in recent years. Both Take This Waltz and Stories We Tell received rave reviews, which likely factored into Paramount’s decision.

According to Deadline, Green’s novel, his first, centered on a “16-year-old boy named Miles Halter, »

Why movie scores sound better live

25 June 2014 4:11 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Film scores aren't just for playing in the background any more. Ivan looks at how they're taking centre stage...

Feature

Film soundtracks have always been a strange medium. The music relies on movies for their full meaning. They're so integral to a film and its mood that to listen to them away from the big screen can seem strange to many. Others, meanwhile, take the chance outside of the cinema to pore over them in detail, or use them for background music while running or working (How to Train Your Dragon's on now, if you're wondering). It's only in recent years that another way of listening to them has become popular again: with your eyes.

Do a quick Google for "film with live score" and you'll discover a whole heap of events currently happening around the UK in which orchestras accompany a screening. Why the sudden trend? Is it »

FrightFest to Open with ‘Guest,’ Starring ‘Downton’ Star Dan Stevens

20 June 2014 5:48 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — Adam Wingard’s killer thriller “The Guest,” starring “Downton Abbey” star Dan Stevens and rising thesp Maika Monroe (“The Bling Ring,” “It Follows”), is set to open Film4 FrightFest in London.

The movie directors who could use a good boss

19 June 2014 7:17 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

They're talented, individual, but could, possibly, do with a bit of editorial guidance. Could these directors use a boss, we wonder?

Odd List

In truth, we're a bit frightened about this one. Several times in pub/coffee shop/cider drinking in the park conversations, we've chatted about film directors who perhaps have got too powerful, that they seem to be able to get their own way without having someone to call bullshit on them - be it a good boss, or a very good friend that they trust and listen to.

This can be a very good thing. After all, we want film directors to be free to tell their stories. We don't want studio suits calling the shots. And some directors use their independence wondefully well, without losing what bought it to them in the first place (so, Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese, Christopher Nolan, Robert Zemeckis and such like).

9 Musicals That Need Movies and Which Directors Should Take Them On

17 June 2014 9:06 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The movie musical certainly had a heyday in the 1930s and 40s, but thanks to films like 2001's "Moulin Rouge!" and 2002's "Chicago," musicals have made a comeback throughout the aughts and the teens during this millennium. With Clint Eastwood's adaptation of the popular stage musical "Jersey Boys" opening this weekend, we got to thinking about what musical theater productions are worthy of a film adaptation and which directors would be perfect to bring them to the silver screen. Here's our list of musicals that haven't yet gotten film adaptations and who we think should take them on. Let us know what shows you want to see on film, and who you think would be the perfect director.  "Avenue Q" Directed by Edgar Wright "(Shaun of the Dead," "Hot Fuzz") With an unmatched eye for satire, Edgar Wright spun iconic tale "Dawn of the Dead" into contemporary comedy landmark "Shaun of the Dead. »

Event Report: The Horror Highlights of BookExpo America 2014

16 June 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

BookExpo America is a massive event, hosting nearly every publisher on the planet. To walk into it and say, "I've got it easy... I'll just be covering horror and spooky-themed titles!" is Laughable. Team Dread hit the show hard this year, determined to squeeze it for all it was worth...

It took us two days to walk every aisle of the Javits Convention Center in the heart of New York City and find those 5,000 new zombie books you'll see on the shelves later this year. Yeah, zombies are still hot.. with no signs of cooling down anytime soon. I bet you're shocked.

We came back with over 100 images (shot by the ninja-like Galaxia Siandre), and so the challenge became how to present this pile to you in a way that will satisfy hard-core bibliophiles but won't give our editors night terrors for the next three weeks. So we've posted the crème de la crème here, »

16 Sequels that Were Better than the First Movie

9 June 2014 9:04 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

In today's world of studio movie making, let's face it, it's all about franchising. It's all about the sequels. In fact, this weekend we have two sequels hitting theaters in 22 Jump Street and How to Train Your Dragon 2. The first is a comedy sequel and it's receiving great reviews, despite the fact comedies rarely have good sequels. The second has the potential to be one of the biggest movies of the summer and perhaps the biggest animated movie of 2014. Whyc Sequels sell and if they're good they sell even more. That said, last week I started considering the sequels that were actually better than the original film in any given franchise. This isn't a question of what are the best sequelsc (I've already made that list.) Instead, what sequels managed to exceed the quality and entertainment of the film(s) that came before them. In this sense I have »
