John Carpenter Q&A: Why ‘Halloween’ Didn’t Need Sequels & What Scares The Master Of Horror

31 October 2014 2:35 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

John Carpenter keeps his office in a converted hillside Hollywood home, on a quiet tree-lined street evocative of the sleepy suburb Michael Myers terrorized in 1978’s Halloween. Inside, the walls are lined with memories marking Carpenter’s four decades in film: original prints, awards, figurines of Kurt Russell as Snake Plisskin and the Creature From The Black Lagoon movie Carpenter spent years trying to make at Universal, a sculpture commemorating the prankster goosings on the set of his Big Trouble In Little China. Carpenter, 67, chain smokes as we revisit the films that made his career — starting with Halloween, a film originally titled The Babysitter Murders that the hungry young director took after making his debut with 1974 sci-fier Dark Star and honing his chops with 1976’s Assault On Precinct 13.

Carpenter speaks candidly of his successes and failures, and of the health issues that required emergency eye surgery in recent years »

From Masked Madmen to Benevolent Alien Clones: The Impressive Range of Cult Film Director John Carpenter

9 October 2014 5:58 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

John Carpenter has produced an impressive body of work as a composer, director, producer, editor, and occasionally as a scriptwriter. He was a lifelong fan of science fiction novels, horror comic books, and classic westerns, he has managed to integrate thematic elements of all of these things into his work. Even though he’s experienced financial setbacks over the years, two generations of Hollywood and independent film makers have drawn inspiration from Carpenter’s work.

It was during his time at the University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts, Carpenter debuted his theatrical release: Dark Star (1974). A black comedy interlaced with postmodernist science fiction, the movie features a team of astronauts on a special mission: to destroy unstable worlds to pave the way for space colonization. Unfortunately, nuclear Bomb # 20 (a large inflatable ball) develops a personality, and the astronauts have to convince it not to explode inside the ship. »

I Have Never Seen ‘Hocus Pocus’

3 October 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Ashe never got to see a ton of modern classics from his youth, so we’re making him watch them all as a nostalgia-less adult. Check out the inaugural article for more info. Listen, if you didn’t immediately start singing Halloween songs (that you probably made up) the second it turned October 1st, we can’t be friends. Syfy does 31 days of Halloween, and I’ll be damned if I’m going to let the people responsible for Tara Reid’s career resurgence show me up. All month long, I’m watching Halloween movies I haven’t seen and talking about them to people who probably have seen them. (That would be you guys.) We’re going to kick things off with a movie people have been telling me to watch for years: Hocus Pocus, starring The Divine Miss M and Carrie Bradshaw and Peggy Hill.

First Trailer For Lifetime’s Stephen King Adaptation Big Driver

24 September 2014 3:48 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

This fall, Lifetime will take an uncharacteristic trip into horror lit with Big Driver, an adaptation of Stephen King’s same-named short story from his 2010 collection Full Dark, No Stars. Maria Bello stars in the grim and brutal pic, about an author who is brutally raped and assaulted by a truck driver, only to survive and return seeking vengeance.

The project is an unusual one for Lifetime, though the network has been branching out in recent years with increasingly dramatic original series like Witches of East End and The Lottery. Big Driver is also, like many of Lifetime’s programs, a tale of female empowerment led by a particularly steely protagonist.

Now, the suitably dark first trailer for the movie, which also stars Olympia Dukakis, Joan Gett, Ann Dowd and Will Harris, has arrived online. Check it out below, along with the official synopsis for the adaptation.

Takashi Miike’s Lesson Of Evil: DVD review

7 September 2014 2:58 AM, PDT | 24framespersecond.net | See recent 24FramesPerSecond news »

Director: Takashi Miike. Review: Adam Wing. We all know that Takashi Miike is one of the hardest working directors in the world right now, he's been knocking out up to three pictures a year for as long as I can remember. The diversity - particularly in recent years - has been quite staggering, with Miike lending his talents to period pieces (Hara-kiri), children's movies (Yatterman) and even the occasional musical (For Loves Sake). In fact, he hasn't made a full-length horror movie since 2003, even if he did dabble in the genre with standout segments in Three... Extremes and the Masters of Horror series. Takashi Miike hasn't actually made that many horror movies but it's the genre he's most commonly associated with. One Missed Call was answered in 2003, Ichi the Killer lashed out in 2001 and Audition was released way back in 1999. Lesson of Evil has been a long time coming then, »

Complex narratives: 6 series that revolutionized television in the digital age

3 September 2014 11:25 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The digital age has changed television dramatically within the past two decades.  With the advent of cable channels, home video media, dish on demand and the internet, the average TV viewer has a variety of venues to access television programs. With all these ways to access television shows, the viewing audience has become more aware of repetitive story lines, inconsistency in character development and continuity errors.  In short, these advances in technology have made for a more sophisticated casual television viewer, therefore allowing for the progression of serialized storytelling.

Today’s television writers have a landscape to develop complex narratives beyond the limitations of the episodic format, and now that audiences have better accessibility to these shows, there is a higher demand for serialized storytelling where there wasn’t one before.

Although there have been many television shows that have contributed to the overall progression of the modern serialized television series, »

Frightfest 2014: ‘The Harvest’ Review

24 August 2014 10:03 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Michael Shannon, Samantha Morton, Peter Fonda, Natasha Calis, Charlie Tahan, Peter Fonda, Leslie Lyles | Written by Stephen Lancellotti | Directed by John McNaughton

John McNaughton, enfante-terrible of the BBFC thanks to his stunning 1986 debut feature Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer, returns to genre film making after two decades away from horror (his Masters of Horror episode in 2006 is his only “horror” credit in 25 years), with a psychological thriller starring Britain’s very own Samantha Morton and everyone’s favourite Superman villain, Michael Shannon, who play married medical professionals Katharine and Richard Young who keep their sick son Andy isolated from the outside world in their remote countryside house.

However that isolation is broken when Maryann, following the death of her parents, moves in with her grandparents just down the road. Having left all she knows behind and feeling alone, she eventually befriends Andy – despite the vehement protest of his overprotective mother, »

Frightfest 2014: ‘All Cheerleaders Die’ Review

23 August 2014 2:31 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Caitlin Stasey, Sianoa Smit-McPhee, Brooke Butler, Tom Williamson | Written and Directed by Lucky McKee, Chris Sivertson

Lucky McKee is a director I have been familiar with since I saw his 2002 film, May, starring horror mainstay Angela Bettis. McKee went on to direct an excellent episode of the short-lived Masters of Horror television show entitled “Sick Girl”, again starring Bettis. It was, however, McKee’s 2011 film, The Woman, that truly hit me between the eyes and sold me on Lucky as a director. A dark, grotesque, macabre film that dealt with female power and the role of the abuser, The Woman cemented McKee as a horror director to watch, which leads us to this review…

All Cheerleaders Die is a comedy-horror, written and directed by both McKee and Chris Sivertson. Maddy (Caitlin Stasey) is a high-school girl pariah, you know the sort, black eyeliner, anti-social attitude and not forgetting a »

‘Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer’ Director Returns to Horror Genre

21 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Nearly 25 years have passed since John McNaughton’s landmark true-crime horror film “Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer” snuck into U.S. theaters — and that itself was long after its 1986 festival premiere, a protracted tussle with the MPAA accounting for the delay.

Filmmaking would never be an easy ride for the Chicago-based director. Half a dozen narrative features (offbeat comedy “Mad Dog and Glory” and erotic thriller “Wild Things” among them) followed before he retreated from bigscreen work in 2001. Sporadic TV assignments followed — including a 2006 chapter for Showtime’s “Masters of Horror” series, which placed him in the company of John Carpenter and Takashi Miike, among others.

And it’s to the horror genre that he returns with his comeback feature “The Harvest,” which McNaughton will present Aug. 23 at FrightFest in London. Starring Samantha Morton as the dangerously overprotective mother of a teenage shut-in, »

10 Most Chilling TV Moments Ever

19 August 2014 2:22 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Fox

It’s rare these days to get a scene on television that genuinely makes the hairs on your neck stand up on end, which really brutally knocks you for six.

We’re used to gore, of course. The rise of cable TV as the go-to medium for bloodthirsty, gripping stories, along with the fall in cost of decent CG effects has seen the amount of nasty body horror on television multiplied by a factor of what-the-hell in recent years.

But genuine, clammy-handed fright fests are few and far between. The old school weird sci fi and horror anthologies like The Twilight Zone, Masters Of Horror, The Outer Limits and Tales From The Crypt were always more concerned with the macabre than the chilling. Those that have stood the test of time without crumbling into cheese were either gruesome, shocking or freaky, relying on a short, sharp shock in the »
