Review: Blunt Force Trauma

9 October 2015 12:22 AM, PDT | | See recent Icons of Fright news »

When HBO aired its vampire series True Blood, its arrival came at just the right time. The Twilight series was everywhere and horror was hitting the mainstream at every shopping mall in America. True Blood had creator Alan Ball at its side, therefore, already providing a sense of authenticity due to his resume consisting of the Oscar winning American Beauty and HBO’s earlier series, Six Feet Under. It’s through True Blood that America was introduced to Australian actor Ryan Kwanten who played the air headed yet lovable Jason Stackhouse. Kwanten has created a name for himself in the genre with Knights Of Badassdom, Dead Silence, and the underrated Griff The Invisible. His career is subtle overall, but he has the charisma to become a leading man and hope he gets a role that will get a more mainstream appeal. He seems to want to feel out other genres and avoid typecasting and, »

Frightfest 2015: ‘Demonic’ Review

28 August 2015 10:31 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Maria Bello, Frank Grillo, Cody Horn, Dustin Milligan, Megan Park, Scott Mechlowicz, Aaron Yoo, Alex Goode, Ashton Leigh, Terence Rosemore, Griff Furst, Jesse Steccato, Meyer DeLeeuw | Written by Max La Bella | Directed by Will Canon

James Wan, the man behind Saw, Dead Silence (a personal favourite), Insidious and The Conjuring, dons producer cap once more – following the success of Annabelle – for Demonic, the second feature from director Will Canon (Brotherhood); and a movie that seems to share more in common with the work of its producer that just having his name on the film…

Demonic follows Detective Mark Lewis and psychologist Dr. Elizabeth Klein as they question the lone survivor of a ghost-hunting excursion turned horrific massacre – where five college students were brutally murdered inside an abandoned home. The amateur paranormal activists were simply seeking proof of poltergeist phenomenon at the supposed haunted house. But what started out as »

Film Review: ‘Insidious: Chapter 3′

3 June 2015 9:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Chief among things that go bump in the night in “Insidious: Chapter 3” is the movie itself — a thuddingly dull prequel to James Wan’s very enjoyable (and highly profitable) demonic-possession horror franchise. Like last year’s subpar “The Conjuring” spinoff “Annabelle,” this direly routine ghost story marks a huge comedown in production values and performance quality from the series’ previous entries (which earned a combined $258 million worldwide), despite the presence of longtime Wan collaborator Leigh Whannell behind the camera and always game-faced elder scream queen Lin Shaye in front of it. But the movie’s cardinal sin is that it’s a stifling bore — a “chapter” even devotees may deem less than essential summer reading.

After devoting two films to the bedevilment of the Lambert family — specifically, a spooky old hag that had attached itself to patriarch Josh (Patrick Wilson) from childhood — the “Insidious” series seemed poised to continue »

Dead Silence Hits Bluray in August

25 May 2015 12:43 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Dead Silence drew plenty of disdainful reviews upon arrival in 2007 but the truth of the matter is its a decent flick with some really creepy scenes to take in. James Wan (whos since gone on to deliver fan favorites Insidious and The Conjuring) puts his creepy stamp on things offering up a slew of cool atmospheric shots and unique camera maneuvers. Ryan Kwanten does a fine job of leading the film and theres a damn wicked twist in wait. Its a solid flick. »

James Wan calls his 'Furious 7' experience 'big and exhausting'

3 April 2015 4:15 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I misjudged James Wan. When "Saw" was being prepped for release, I was approached by the creative execs at Twisted Pictures, along with my writing partner, about spitballing ideas for sequels, since they already saw it as a franchise. It was one in a flurry of meetings, and we didn't have an immediate reaction, and so we let it go. Didn't really chase it. Smart, right? For a little while, I wasn't really sure what to make of Wan as a director. I didn't like "Dead Silence" much at all, and I wasn't sure what to make of the wild swings in tone in "Death Sentence." It wasn't until the midnight premiere of "Insidious" at the Toronto Film Festival that I was 100% onboard, and it felt like Wan had become a different, more confident filmmaker at that point, like he was serious about his craft in a different way.

Ride or Die: A Complete History on the Evolution of ‘The Fast and the Furious’ Franchise

3 April 2015 8:53 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Ride or die.” Those words only appear a few times in the franchise – most famously out of Vin Diesel’s gravelly baritone in Fast & Furious 6 – but they have become the personal motto for how this franchise has continued, grown, succeeded and become greater with each film. Today, Furious 7, the latest in the series will be released, and it’s a mark of achievement not only that they’ve made it to seven films, but that it only feels exciting for a seventh film about criminals racing cars to be released.  The Fast and the Furious franchise is unlike any franchise out there right now, as it has evolved from perfectly adequate popcorn films about criminals racing cars to superb and exhilarating blockbuster action films. No other franchise can say that they only began to hit their creative stride with the fifth film. To understand how we arrived at this point though, »

Ranking the Films of James Wan

21 March 2015 3:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Edward Gardiner ranks the films of James Wan

James Wan: love him or hate him, he knows how to make an audience tick.

After navigating his way to the rare status of financially lucrative horror director, Wan landed the gig of helming the utterly mad-looking Fast & Furious 7, with series regular Justin Lin moving onto other things.  As it gears up for an imminent release, this seems like a good opportunity to rank Aussie director’s films in order of quality so far. Wasting no time…

6. Death Sentence, 2007

A little-seen revenge picture starring Kevin Bacon as a family man who goes all one man army on a group of thugs who murdered his son, Death Sentence is an interesting but flawed piece.  An enjoyably nasty performance from Garrett Hedlund and a terrific single-take foot chase stand out, and the frolicsome approach to the direction gives the impression Wan was »

‘Insidious: Chapter 3′ gets a new trailer

17 March 2015 6:30 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

While filmmaker James Wan had gotten on the radar of many horror fans with his second feature Saw, the 2010 film Insidious served to reinforce his skills in the genre to many. Wan’s key collaborator, however, is screenwriter Leigh Whannell, as the duo have worked together on numerous features, from the aforementioned Saw and Insidious to the latter’s sequel, Insidious: Chapter 2, and Dead Silence.

The third film in the series, titled Insidious: Chapter 3, will not have one of its main ingredients, as James Wan has stepped away from the director’s chair. Replacing him, however, is Whannell, who will be making his directorial debut with the third entry, along with writing the screenplay and reprising the role of the character Specs, who has appeared in both prior entries. The synopsis for the third movie is as follows:

“Look What I Made You”: In Defense Of James Wan’s Death Sentence (2007)

24 January 2015 3:10 AM, PST | | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Mention James Wan’s name, and more times than not, the Saw or Insidious series will come up. Every once in a great while, a fan of the criminally underrated Dead Silence will be brought up (and rightfully so, it’s wonderful), but for the most part, Wan’s fanbase tends to focus on the traps of Saw, the ghosts of Insidious or the frightening Warren experiences of The Conjuring.  One film in Wan’s filmography that always seems to get the shaft in conversations or isn’t referred to much, is his loose adaption of Brian Garfield’s novel, Death Sentence. That film has always held a spot in my heart for many reasons, the writing, the music, the performances, and most of all, the morality tales and lessons that though are not subtle whatsoever, speak volumes about how far we can get from who we are, while trying »
