The devil loves tormenting good Christian communities.
From Roadside Attractions, “The Devil’s Hand” stars Rufus Sewell (“Hercules,” “Gods of Egypt”), Alycia Debnam Carey (“Into the Storm”), Adelaide Kane (“Reign”) and Colm Meaney (“Star Trek: Deep Space Nine”).
Here’s the synopsis:
Something very strange happened in the small village of New Bethlehem, a devout community kept under the tight reins of the town's vigilant Elders. Six girls born on the same day to different mothers. Perhaps a coincidence or as most believe a chilling omen of something yet to come. Now, on the eve of their 18th birthday, the young women are mysteriously disappearing one by one and feared dead. Terror has overtaken this quiet community. Could this be the work of a serial killer, one of the village elders or a horrific prophecy come true?
Latino-Review had an exclusive phone interview with actress Adelaide Kane on the release date for the film. »

After seeing ABC’s Of Death 2 at Fantastic Fest (you can read my review of the film Here), I was able to sit down with the director of one of my favorite shorts in the anthology – Larry Fessenden. His short “N is for Nexus” is a break-neck countdown through the streets of New York as Halloween night approaches. A couple preparing their Frankenstein costumes for a party sets in motion a series of events that intersect and slowly affect one another, leading to a devastating conclusion. Fessenden is practically a legend in the indie horror genre. He has worked as an actor, cinematographer, writer and director since the later 70’s and has created a named for himself with such feature films like Habit, Wendigo, and The Last Winter, while also appearing in films like I Sell The Dead, Stake Land, and Jug Face. I was lucky enough to sit down »

It can't be ignored that "Mulaney" premiered last Sunday night on Fox and the ratings weren't especially good. I got on the phone with creator-star John Mulaney on Thursday and made a promise up-front: I'd lead with quick ratings discussion and then never return to the topic and we stuck to it. The bottom line on that subject: Fox is 100 percent behind "Mulaney" and the network knows things will turn around. And what else would anyone say after one week? Mostly, we discussed the learning process on "Mulaney," which was originally developed at NBC, moved over to Fox and which is already far deeper into production than most freshman shows. This week, in fact, found "Mulaney" working on its 13th episode, while Mulaney was also, at least according to Twitter, parlaying with old chum Bill Hader in advance of Hader's "SNL" hosting stint, so it's impressive both that he found time to chat all, »

Michonne may not have exactly seemed like a people person when we first met her on The Walking Dead, but that cold, hard exterior has softened over time. Heck, we’ve even seen her smile a few times and strike up a friendship with Carl. But how comfortable is she now in a big group? And how comfortable will she be in a big group full of new faces (like Abraham, Eugene, Rosita, and Tara)? We asked actress Danai Gurira that and more when we spoke about the upcoming season 5 (which premieres this Sunday). Here’s what you need to know about Michonne going forward. »

On Thursday’s Bones, Booth, Brennan & Co. paid tribute to John Francis Daley’s fallen shrink with an appropriately no-frills memorial service held on a hilltop overlooking Washington, D.C. (Admit it, you cried during Brennan’s speech. We’re not here to judge you.)
The episode also (mostly) resolved the complex conspiracy that led to Sweets’ untimely death, included a ferocious, impeccably acted Booth-Brennan fight scene, and brought Sweets’ quasi-successor (and eerie doppelgänger) Aubrey into the forefront.
Below, exec producer Stephen Nathan answers our myriad burning questions about the emotional hour. Included among our queries: »
FX’s Sons of Anarchy kicked off its farewell run on Tuesday in gory fashion, as an unglued Jax set out to avenge his wife Tara’s brutal murder. As series creator Kurt Sutter recently told TVLine, “It’s the most proactive we’ve ever seen our hero in the sense of being singular of purpose. It’s all about revenge.” And he wasn’t kidding.
In the closing moments of the 105-minute opener, Jax savagely butchered an innocent (of this crime, at least) man — at the prompting of the actual culprit, Gemma. Speaking of Sons‘ Black Widow: When she wasn’t covering her tracks, »
For the past two months, viewers have been disturbed and unsettled by Richard Sammel's performance as Eichorst, the Nazi concentration camp guard turned vampire apocalypse facilitator, on FX's "The Strain." Playing both the human (but inhuman) Nazi version of Eichorst and his steely, arrogant contemporary incarnation, Sammel has given very different monstrous shadings to his role. That's why it's a bit funny to Skype up with the smiley, voluble Sammel and have him immediately cackle in pleasure at being able to identify my mogwai avatar from "Gremlins," before he very politely asks me to switch on my webcam so that we can see each other as we chat. Sammel is in a good mood because it's the first sunny day in Paris for a while. Or maybe he just genuinely enjoys talking about his part in the FX vampire drama, which was recently renewed for a second season. "I »

Read our review of Locke here.
Lo: How did Locke come about?
Sk: I had just finished making a conventional film and I wondered if there was something else that I could do that would test me. I had been testing camera filming cars for moving theatre backgrounds and I wondered if I could put that on the big screen. I like playing with films and that’s where Locke came from.
Where did the story come from?
Well, first of all I wanted to point that camera at the sort of person who doesn’t get it pointed at. I wanted him to be a regular man. »

Robin Williams wasn't just an incredible actor who was able to skip between blockbuster family comedies and emotional and dark dramas in a heartbeat. He was also one of the greatest ever stand-up comedians.
His stand-up performances often revealed the darker side of Williams's personality, offering audiences a glimpse into his hard lifestyle. They were also, always, incredibly funny.
Off-the-wall, anarchic, furiously fast, he was able to mix manic physicality and unbelievable improv skils to create a stand-up style like nobody else.
Here are 8 classic Williams routines from his comedy career:
1. Robin takes on the end of George W Bush's presidency
"America is officially out of rehab. It's over."
Making his first UK stage appearance in 25 years, Williams lifted the energy levels at this Prince's Trust charity event »

First, TheBacklot posted a story about an interview actor Brendan Fehr gave with TooFab where he talked about some of his uncomfortable feelings with acting out some of the scenes with on-screen love interest Luke Macfarlane. on the NBC series, The Night Shift.
That story created a whole lot of buzz from our readers, so Fehr responded via Twitter, which we posted in a follow-up story.
So, what did the actor have to say when we caught up with him at the NBC Universal party during the current Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour? Plenty.
The actor owned up to not being too eloquent in his previous statements, talked about how he’s still learning about a community he is not a part of but is portraying on the show and he also joked »

Hong Kong – “Jimmy Neutron” director John A. Davis is to helm “Smart,” a major U.S.-Chinese co-produced animation.
The film is to be a screwball, animated comedy about an emotional robot that forms an unlikely alliance with two abandoned pets to stop the plans of an evil toy manufacturer. Script is by S.D. Katz and David Freeman.
The project is structured as a co-production between Los Angeles-based Pelagius Entertainment and China’s Xing Xing Digital, with a production budget of $22 million. Pre-production begins this month in L.A., with the majority of animation production to take place in Xing Xing’s studios in China. The finished film is to be released in 2016.
The two companies say that the Chinese theatrical market has now grown to the point where big-budget indie animated movies make economic sense.
“Chinese audiences have selectively enjoyed Hollywood animated movies. We have learned from the failures »

Beijing-based Xing Xing Digital and Los Angeles production company Pelagius Entertainment are to partner on the feature animation Smart.
John A Davis will direct the film, which the parties claim is budgeted at $22m, from a screenplay by S D Katz and David Freeman.
Pre-production is scheduled to begin this month in Los Angeles. The bulk of animation production will be performed at Xing Xing’s studios in China in time for a 2016 international theatrical release.
Representatives described Smart as “a screwball, animated comedy about an emotional robot that forms an unlikely alliance with two abandoned pets to stop the nefarious plans of an evil toy manufacturer.”
“Chinese audiences have selectively enjoyed Hollywood animated movies,” said Xing Xing CEO Lifeng Wang. “We have learned from the failures and successes at the local box office and even without a North American release, the local box office can support appropriately priced animated movies that meet the high standards of international »

The Tony Awards are less than a week away so the nail biting will amp up this week as we all wait for the envelopes to be opened and winners revealed.
One of the current Broadway shows with a slew of nominations is the revival of Hedwig and the Angry Inch starring Lead Actor in a Musical nominee Neil Patrick Harris. With 8 nominations (second only to A Gentleman’s Guide To Love and Murder), the show clearly has that ‘wow factor’ and is also up for Best Revival of a Musical, Best Performance by an Actress (Lena Hall) and more for sound, lighting, costume and scenic design as well as a Best Direction of a Musical nod for Tony-winner Michael Mayer, who last won for Spring Awakening in 2007.
Mayer talked to TheBacklot last week to find out more about putting the show together with Harris as well as just how »

“Don’t listen to her … listen through her.”

One of the worst kept secrets in the tech world, was that Amazon was developing their own home box top. While rumors persisted that it would be a gaming console (the leak of a game controller certainly made it seem that way), what we got was the Amazon Fire TV. It's a media device capable of playing some games, but it's real purpose is to change the way you watch shows and movies at home. I've been lucky enough to get my hands on the new device and am happy to share my thoughts on it.
The announcement of the Fire TV came at a very interesting (and fortuitous) time for me personally. Literally a couple days before Amazon announced the device I had "cut the cord" and gotten rid of my cable TV, switching to an all digital lifestyle. Needless to say, when Amazon offered me the chance to »

Warning: Castle fans, spoilers ahead.
“What’s a great story without obstacles to overcome?” Castle said in the middle of Monday night’s season finale, as he comforted his defeated bride-to-be. “Every fairy tale has them — terrible trials that only the worthy can transcend. But we can’t give up. That’s the deal — we want the happy ending, we can’t give up.”
Wise words from the crime-fighting novelist but, in a way, also eerie. Because, as fans know by now, the wedding day Castle and Beckett worked so hard to put together didn’t unravel as expected in the show’s season finale. »

Warning: This story contains spoilers from the season finale of Revenge. Proceed with caution, West Coast!
Fans of ABC’s twisted Hamptons drama-fest Revenge learned earlier this week that the show would be returning for a fourth season, and thank the TV Gods for that. Because after tonight’s season finale, which featured multiple deaths and one Huge twist, we’re guessing there would have been a few not-so happy fans. “I was telling everyone, if we didn’t get picked up, that was going to be the ultimate act of revenge,” jokes exec producer Sunil Nayar, who called EW »

In March, I was on the Calgary set of FX's "Fargo" and I got to talk to most of the show's main stars, including Martin Freeman, Allison Tolman, Keith Carradine, and Colin Hanks and Joey King. I also chatted with producers Noah Hawley and Warren Littlefield and, before the premiere, I interviewed Billy Bob Thornton as well. The characters on the reimagined take on the Coen Brothers' Oscar winner are compelling and that gives everybody involved plenty to discuss, so I hope to keep checking off members of the eclectic cast plenty to talk about. Up next? Adam Goldberg, who was introduced in the second episode as a fiery hitman whose name has never been given. Official FX literature says that Goldberg is Mr. Numbers, while Russell Harvard's character is Mr. Wrench. Apparently, we aren't going to learn anything more than that. Mr. Numbers and Mr. Wrench are »

Spoiler Alert: If you haven’t seen Thursday night’s season finale of Vikings, “The Lord’s Prayer,” stop reading now and come back when you’ve done so. Those of you who already know what went down in the final hour of History’s epic series, come join me in your pain and sorrow…
What a ride. Those are the exact words I used when I spoke to creator and executive producer Michael Hirst, having had the opportunity to preview the finale ahead of time, but I think they ring true for all Vikings fans right now. The final »
