‘Blair Witch’ review [Tiff ’16]

11 September 2016 10:13 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Blair Witch review: 17 years after the debut of the ground-breaking original, Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett attempt to re-ignite the franchise.

Blair Witch review by Paul Heath, Toronto International Film Festival 2016.

Up until just a couple of months ago, Blair Witch looked like it would be just another woods-set horror movie – even though it boasted the supreme talents of director Adam Wingard and writer Simon Barrett – the guys who brought us You’re Next and The Guest. Then the San Diego Comic-Con happened and Lionsgate dropped the bombshell in re-titling the film, calling it the aforementioned Blair Witch. A synopsis followed, and rather than the film being a remake of the 1999 classic, it would actually be a second sequel set nearly twenty years after the ground-breaking original. The Internet went wild.

The film is set in the present day, two decades since Heather Donahue, Joshua Leonard and Michael C. Williams »

Netflix Picks Up "Lost In Space" Series Reboot

29 June 2016 3:02 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Streaming giant Netflix has handed out a ten-episode series order for "Lost In Space," the reimagined contemporary reboot of Irwin Allen's classic 1960s sci-fi series from Legendary Television.

Zack Estrin ("Prison Break") will serve as showrunner on the series which was hatched by feature scribes Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless ("Dracula Untold," "The Last Witch Hunter")

Like the original show, and the critically derided 1998 film reboot, the story centers on the Robinson family who are forced to come together in a time of crisis.

Stranded light years from their intended destination, they find themselves battling a strange new alien environment and also their own personal demons. Equal parts family drama and sci-fi adventure, Netflix dubs the new series "a survival story for the ages."

"The Descent" and "Game of Thrones" helmer Neil Marshall is set to direct multiple episodes of the series with a worldwide premiere in 2018 planned.

'Game of Thrones': Inside Four of the Biggest Battles

20 June 2016 11:44 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

"Blackwater." "The Watchers on the Wall." "Hardhome." "The Battle of the Bastards." It's rare enough for characters on a TV show to become household names, but on Game of Thrones, all it takes is a major battle for an episode title to lodge into pop-culture consciousness – like a sword plunged through steel armor.

So far, HBO's smash-hit series has served up a quartet of colossal clashes: the episode-spanning fights for King's Landing and Castle Black that served as climaxes for Seasons Two and Four, and the shorter but no less »

You Need to Turn Up the Dial for Dark Signal and this Terrifying Trailer

21 March 2016 3:47 PM, PDT | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

Tagline: "Fear the Returned." The first trailer for Edward Evers-Swindell's (Infestation) Dark Signal has hit the air waves. The film, partially developed by Neil Marshall (The Descent), involves the spirit of a murdered girl. Sometimes, the dead still have a reason to stay behind. The film stars Siwan Morris, Gareth David-Lloyd and Joanna Ignaczewska. And, this horror film, from Wales, looks to blend several different stories together in this thrilling clip. The film involves at least two separate stories. Single mother Kate (Ignaczewska) is entangled with a desperate robbery plan, which leads her out into the wilderness. Here, something emerges from the dark woods. Meanwhile, at a local radio station, two broadcasters are sending out their last radio show. Their special guest is a local medium. And, the spirits they churn up have their own disturbed story to tell. The trailer for Dark Signal is a good one. The »

‘Game of Thrones’ and ‘Supernatural’ masterminds are teaming up to make this time travel TV show

28 January 2016 6:54 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The simply titled time travel TV show Time already has an exciting team-up with creators Shawn Ryan, the man behind FX’s Emmy-winning series The Shield, and Eric Kripke, who created much-fan-beloved Supernatural. Now there’s another talent aboard the project who comes with some solid geek cred. Kripke announced on Twitter today that Neil Marshall will direct the pilot episode for Time. This should have genre fans stoked — Marshall helmed excellent cave-expedition-gone-wrong horror movie The Descent and also directed two Game of Thrones episodes memorable for their epic battle scenes, “Blackwater” and “The Watchers on the Wall.” Might this mean we can hope for some horror elements and solid action sequences in Time? News! Amazing genre director #NeilMarshall (#Got, The Descent) is directing our NBC Pilot #Time! I'm a crazy huge fan. @ShawnRyanTV — Eric Kripke (@therealKripke) January 28, 2016 NBC recently gave Time a pilot order — if the network likes it, »
