The Stanley Film Festival Announces Special Events, Including Musical Acts, Horror Trivia, Scare Zones

31 March 2015 7:40 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

For decades, Estes Park, Colorado has been a destination for road-tripping horror hounds, as Stephen King was struck with the idea for The Shining while staying at the Stanley Hotel. But since 2013, fright fans have had another big reason to pay the famous hotel a visit: the Stanley Film Festival.

After screening feature films both old and new and hosting special guests galore in their first two years, the third annual Stanley Film Festival is quickly approaching, and we're teaming up with the festival for live coverage and special opportunities for Daily Dead readers.

Today, we have the first details on the special experiences and events that will be taking place during all four days of the festival, including musical acts, scare zones, trivia, and a special screening of The Rocky Horror Picture Show:

For the sixth consecutive year, thousands of movie lovers from around the globe descended upon Hollywood for the TCM Classic Film Festival.

Watch: First Trailer for J.K. Rowling's 'The Casual Vacancy', Coming to HBO in April

27 March 2015 7:45 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Instead of a massive blockbuster cinematic event, J.K. Rowling's follow-up to her Harry Potter novels is getting a major small screen release courtesy of both HBO and the BBC as we have the first trailer for The Casual Vacancy based on Rowling's first adult novel. Starring Rory Kinnear, Simon McBurney and Michael Gambon, the story begins with the death of Barry Fairbrother (Kinnear) and the small town of Pagford is left in shock. Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, but what lies behind the pretty fa?ade is a town at war. Rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils...Pagford is not what it first seems. And the empty seat left by Barry on the parish council soon becomes the »

Watch: Lake Bell and Simon Pegg in ‘Man Up’ Trailer

20 March 2015 2:51 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Simon Pegg plays a leading lad while Lake Bell tries out a British accent in the new trailer for romantic comedy “Man Up,” set to screen at Tribeca Film Festival next month.

In the trailer, Nancy (Bell) is an out-of-love thirtysomething whom Jack (Pegg) mistakes as his blind date. The two hit it off until Nancy is eventually outed and forced to explain her duplicity.

The film is co-produced by French-based distributor StudioCanal and Big Talk Productions, the latter of which is responsible for successful films such as Pegg’s “Shaun of the Dead” and “Hot Fuzz.” Ben Palmer (“The Inbetweeners”) directed the film.

Man Up” will be released in the U.K. on May 29 and does not yet have a U.S. release date.

Watch Simon Pegg And Lake Bell In First Trailer For Romantic Comedy Man Up

20 March 2015 7:50 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Following his success in the wonderfully wacky British TV series Spaced, Simon Pegg’s leap to the big screen has seen him catapulted into mega-franchises like Star Trek and Mission: Impossible (and possibly even Star Wars). One step of that journey involved dabbling in a few rom-coms which landed with mixed results (Run Fatboy Run, Hector and the Search For Happiness). While he’s switching up the material for the forthcoming assassin comedy Kill Me Three Times, which is getting a Us release next month, he hasn’t quite abandoned the romance oeuvre just yet.

In Man Up, Pegg joins Lake Bell as a couple who inadvertently share a romantic evening together. His hopeless singleton initiates a date with a prospective partner he recently met online. In a twist of incident, however, as is often the case in the world of rom-com matchmaking, he doesn’t meet who he’s »

Keanu Classic: Point Break

20 March 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

We at Thn collectively love Keanu Reeves and have been immensely excited about his return this year in John Wick. Although not released in UK cinemas until April, Thn have been lucky enough to have already seen it and we can tell you that it is all kinds of awesome.

John Wick was so brilliant that it has awoken my long-forgotten admiration for Mr Reeves and compelled me to revisit his extensive back catalogue immediately. He might not be known as being the most heavyweight of actors but you have to admit the man knows how to make an entertaining movie, and he’s not bad to look at. Even if everything else about the film is terrible or ridiculously over the top, Keanu is always awesome – Jonnhy Mnemonic and Chain Reaction would be nothing without him.

Every Friday between now and the release of John Wick on 10th April, »

A Look Back At Rob G.’s FEARnet Video Interviews

10 March 2015 12:08 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

This upcoming April will mark the one year anniversary of the dissolution of FEARnet, both as a network and a website. For me in particular, it’s difficult because a lot of the staff I was fortunate enough to share office space with worked really, really hard on the output that appeared both on the cable channel as interstitial content and on the website itself. We put our heart and souls into making it the brand you knew and loved.

Technically, my job title there was “web coordinator,” which essentially meant that I assisted my supervisor Chris Connors on all physical aspects of the FEARnet website. The great Lawrence Raffel was our editor-in-chief and the vice president of digital media for FEARnet and he put together an amazing team of writers and contributors such as Alyse Wax, Greg Burkart and John Squires to name a few and scheduled our article itinerary on a daily basis. »

Win Set Fire To The Stars On DVD

6 March 2015 11:04 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

To celebrate the DVD and Blu-ray release of Set Fire To The Stars, we’re giving five lucky WhatCulture.com readers the chance to win a copy of the film on DVD.

Set in 1950s New York, the film follows John Malcolm Brinnin (Elijah Wood) an aspiring young American poet who finds his ordered world shaken when he embarks on a week-long retreat to save his hell raising hero, Dylan Thomas, played by Celyn Jones.

The film also features established British acting talent including Kelly Reilly (Sherlock Holmes, Flight), Steven Mackintosh (Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Kick Ass 2), Kevin Eldon (Hugo, Hot Fuzz) and Shirley Henderson (Bridget Jones Diary, Trainspotting).

Visually stunning and shot entirely in black and white to an original score by Gruff Rhys, Set Fire To The Stars is about the dirty business of celebrity, and what may have happened in an East Coast boathouse when »

Nick Frost on 'Unfinished Business' and What's Next for the Cornetto Crew (Exclusive)

6 March 2015 6:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Even diehard fans of Nick Frost will probably be taken aback by his performance in "Unfinished Business."

The British actor, best known for his trilogy of films with co-star Simon Pegg and director Edgar Wright ("Shaun of the Dead," "Hot Fuzz," and "The World's End"), has appeared as a comic-strip character in "The Adventures of Tin Tin," one of the seven dwarves in "Snow White and the Huntsman," and as a strung-out doper in cult sci-fi comedy "Attack the Block." But, in "Unfinished Business," the new comedy starring Vince Vaughn, Tom Wilkinson, and Dave Franco, Frost plays a buttoned-up businessman who has a rather outrageous personal life.

This means that, for most of the movie, he's outfitted in a snug leather ensemble and, at one point... well, I'm not going to spoil it for you. But, like I said, even for fans of the comedian, this is a whole new side of Nick Frost. »

Review: The Phantom of the Opera (Blu-ray)

23 February 2015 9:52 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Growing up, I was a huge Freddy Krueger fan. I had also become infatuated with Gaston Leroux’s novel, The Phantom of the Opera, which made me a pretty easy mark for Dwight H. Little’s (Halloween 4) 1989 film based on the popular work of fiction. Focusing more on the horror contained within Leroux’s original story, this version is a wickedly ghastly and blood-soaked tale of obsession that allows Robert Englund the room to do what he does best as a performer- go nuts. And after recently checking out the Scream Factory Blu-ray, it was great to see just how well Little’s inventive adaptation has held up over time and how much fun the film still remains, despite its age.

In this Phantom of the Opera, Jill Schoelen portrays an aspiring singer by the name of Christine Day who gets knocked unconscious during an audition, an event that mysteriously »

Simon Pegg Out for Blood in Red Band 'Kill Me Three Times' Trailer

19 February 2015 11:23 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Put the money on the ground, and then get in your car, and fuck off." While we're used to seeing Simon Pegg get a little bloody in the likes of Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, this time things are a little more serious. In Kill Me Three Times, the British actor plays an assassin hired to kill a rich man's wife. But soon some more people end up getting in the way, each with their own desires for money and survival. It's more thriller than comedy, but there seems to be some dark laughs in store. Teresa Palmer, Alice Braga and more star in the film, and now a red band trailer is here with plenty of f-bombs to go around. Watch! Here's the new red band trailer for Kriv Stender's Kill Me Three Times from Yahoo: You can still watch the first trailer for Kill Me Three Times right here. »

Kill Me Three Times Red Band Trailer Shoots In

19 February 2015 9:15 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

You might think that Hot Fuzz would have taught Simon Pegg to watch out for knife-inflicted hand wounds, especially since he was on the receiving end of a blade from a mad Santa Claus played by Peter Jackson. But no, he’s still susceptible if the evidence from this first, red band trailer for comic thriller Kill Me Three Times is any indication, which has arrived bearing lashings of violence and lots of swearing.Pegg plays Charlie Wolfe, a mercurial assassin hired to take out a beautiful woman (Alice Braga) in a sun-baked surfing town. But he soon discovers that he’s not the only person trying to kill her and he’s quickly entangled in three strange tales of murder, blackmail and revenge. There’s Sullivan Stapleton as a gambling addict who is looking to score a hefty pay-out to settle his debts through a risky life insurance scam, »

Slash, Boom, Crack... The Sound of Quentin Tarantino

2 February 2015 10:28 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Vimeo user Jacob T. Swinney has cut together a 90-second video "exploring" Quentin Tarantino's use of sound throughout his career including just about everything you can imagine from beer pouring out of a tap to an adrenaline shot to the chest. His entire feature length oeuvre so far is included, which means Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill: Vol. 1, Kill Bill: Vol. 2, Death Proof, Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained. It almost plays out as if it's Tarantino by way of Edgar Wright, utilizing that similar quick editing Wright has parodied in his films, chiefly Hot Fuzz. Perhaps Tarantino would even respect it as such given the fact he sat with Wright for a commentary on that very film. vimeo id="118431867" width="500" »
