Scream Factory has done it again with their recent Bluray/DVD release of The Burning. Never disappointing, the team has taken the time to load the Bluray/DVD with enough special features, new and old, to please the most diehard fan of the ’80s slasher classic. Read on!
For a more in depth review of the film itself, check out our previous article on it in Exploitation Alley (read that baby right here). For those who have not seen the film, here goes:
The Burning begins with a prank gone wrong, in which a group of mischievous kids payback their summer camp’s caretaker, Cropsey, for his cruelty towards them. One thing leads to another, and the guy accidentally gets caught on fire, horribly disfiguring him. Fast forward to a few years later, Cropsey returns to camp, armed with some serious hedge-clippers, and decides to try to slaughter pretty much everyone possible. »
In what is basically a superhero movie repurposed for a mollusk, DreamWorks Animation has Turbo coming this summer. Ryan Reynolds voices the snail who finds himself with the gift of super speed after a chance encounter with some nitrous fuel liquid. In this new international trailer, we get an entertaining glimpse into the mundane lives of the slow-moving snails, and also get introduced into some of the other snails in the film voiced by Samuel L. Jackson, Bill Hader, Richard Jenkins, Michelle Rodriguez and more. This looks like it could be the second hit for Dwa after The Croods earlier this year. Watch now! Here's the new international trailer for DreamWorks Animation's Turbo from MSN UK (via ComingSoon): Turbo is directed by David Soren (who went from storyboard artist, to head of story, to directing the Merry Madagascar Christmas special) working from a script he co-wrote with Shrek Forever After scribe Darren Lemke. »

The Croods took north of half a billion dollars at the box office, which was a big win for the studio coming off the back of Rise of the Guardians’ unfortunate loss last year, and I for one can’t wait to see what they have in store for us with Turbo.
The last we saw of the film was two great full-length trailers back in March, right around the time the studio were gearing up for The Croods. And now they’ve debuted another great UK trailer, featuring some great new footage.

The final chapter to a fine career will come to a close this weekend and we will bid a sad and fond farewell to a Liverpool legend. Jamie Carragher plays his final competitive game for Liverpool this weekend after a distinguished career which has spanned 16 happy years. Fittingly, the centre back’s final game will take place at his second home – Anfield.
In the grand scheme of the Premier League, this final sentence of this final chapter has near enough no meaning to it but there are plenty of moments which have meant a great deal to the fans at L4. Cup finals. Crucial blocks. Title chases. These are just some of the things that have brought happy emotions to the hearts of Red supporters and Jamie has played his part in all of them over the last decade and a half.
There are, of course, a few bad memories »

We've seen Jason Voorhees stab a lot of people in the head... and everywhere else for that matter. That being said, the following video is something so ridiculously funny and hilarious that it's guaranteed to embed itself in your mind. Especially when your chillin' in an outhouse!
Somewhere right now director Danny Steinmann is smiling down on us all.
Friday the 13th Part V: A New Beginning Synopsis:
The murderous spirit of Jason Voorhees lives on in this horror sequel, although the plot hinges on the mystery of whether the killer's body actually survives. Opening with a nightmare prologue in which Corey Feldman reprises his role as Tommy Jarvis, the boy who killed Jason in the previous installment, the film jumps forward several years to when a teenaged Tommy (John Shepherd), haunted by visions of Jason returning to life, moves into a group home for mentally disturbed kids. Almost as soon as he arrives, »

Adam Green is a man with too much going on, and yet he keeps on going. Rather than use his weekly two hours of free time for sleep, he's now launched his latest project - The Movie Crypt Podcast - with his partner in crime, Joe Lynch!
From Adam Green's Blog on ArieScope
With both "Holliston" Season 2 and Hatchet III about to come out in June (within just 10 days of each other), there is certainly a blog on its way about those projects. We’re even launching a brand spanking new ArieScope.com in a few weeks with a merchandise store- hopefully on-line and ready to go by June 1st if all goes as planned. In the meantime, in the middle of all of the press, touring, appearances, conventions, and premiere screenings- what better time than now to launch a Podcast?
I know, I know. ”A podcast”, you say? »

As just an episode, “The Final Chapter” of The Following is a slight step up from the past many (inevitably, since everything set up in the pilot has been saved for this entry); but, even if it’s a passable ending for some kind of story, somewhere, it is absolutely horrendous as a finale. For every moment that we’ve been waiting for—a scene between the three major characters for once, some guilt out of Claire, etc.—there is an opposite moment of confusion and frustration considering what we’ve been fed thus far. The characters speak about things they should have talked about in “Chapter Two,” but didn’t because they were too busy following Joe, who was such a genius and always one step ahead. »
We'll find out soon enough!
Hamm has now signed on to star, as it were, opposite Sandra Bullock in Illumination Entertainment's "Minions," a follow-up to the wildly successful animated flick "Despicable Me" which puts focus on those hilarious little scuttle bugs.
The Minion-centric spin-off prequel will journey back in time to a point when the energetic little monsters served another super horrible and world domination-hungry master: Bullock's Scarlet Overkill. Hamm will portray her husband Herb.
Hamm and Herb. Huh. Sounds like a pretty tasty dish.
This isn't Hamm's first animated role, of course. In addition to guest stints on the cartoon programs "Bob's Burgers," "Archer" and "Robot Chicken," he also voiced Brogan the Ogre in "Shrek Forever After. »

We already know that Sandra Bullock will be voicing a super-villain in Minions, the animated Despicable Me spinoff that will center on Gru’s little yellow henchman. Now we’re hearing that Mad Men‘s Jon Hamm will be joining her in the role of Herb Overkill, the inventor husband of Bullock’s Scarlet Overkill.
What we know so far about the film is that Bullock’s character is a villain who has been seeking world domination since the 1960s. In the film, which is a prequel, Scarlet is the minions new leader and we learn that these cute little yellow guys have actually been around since the beginning of time, always aiding history’s most bad-ass villains. It’s a clever take on the loveable minions and hopefully it works out well.
As for Hamm joining the cast, I can’t say I saw this one coming but hey, »

So, what did everyone think of the first season of "The Following"? We were a bit underwhelmed but still hold out hope for Season 2, depending on who returns. Here's an "Insider" look at the finale, "The Final Chapter," with series creator Kevin Williamson.
In addition, Kevin can be seen in another video for the show, "Killer Cutting," in which he describes why he believes the editing room is where the storytelling process really begins.
Meanwhile, Joe leads Claire (Natalie Zea) to a special location, and the ultimate showdown between good and evil takes place.

At the end of last week’s episode, Debra was buried alive, with Claire taken aboard a boat, with Joe intending to execute his ex-wife.
Ryan and company are panicked about Debra, and see that she was taken following the murdering spree at the shelter. They try the obvious thing: give her a call. The phone, luckily, is able to get service under ground and still has battery life. Debra answers, terrified, telling them all she knows about her location. Apparently they can’t track her phone because Joe’s people have created a dummy server for the phone. I’m no expert, but since it’s Debra’s phone, and it’s the FBI, this »

"The Following" finale was explosive and deadly ... maybe.
"The Following" finale ended with Joe Carroll seemingly dead after an explosion. The FBI confirmed remains matched his dental records, but this is a TV show after all. According to The Hollywood Reporter, star James Purefoy, the man behind Joe Carroll, joked about a possible return in Season 2. When asked whether he was contracted for the sophomore season, THR reports he said, “I believe so, but that’s not a guarantee." Fox did not return a request for comment regarding Purefoy's status with the show.
The episode ended with Kevin Bacon's hero Ryan Hardy getting stabbed by his ex/neighbor Molly (Jennifer Ferrin). Molly then turned her knife on Claire (Natalie Zea) and the screen faded to black. It's safe to say Bacon, the star of the show, »

The Following Episode 115
Written By: Kevin Williamson
Directed By: Marcos Siega
Original Airdate: 29 April 2013
In This Episode...
A child wearing a Poe mask shows up outside the FBI command center. The kid was paid $20 by a woman named Emma to deliver this mask. He takes it off and hands it over to Ryan. A phone number is inside. The call goes to a cell phone in the coffin with Debra. They can’t track the signal (naturally) so Debra describes what she can remember about where they took her. In the meantime, local cops spotted the car that Debra was abducted in. Mike and Ryan arrive, along with half the FBI, and discover it is a trap - they wanted the car to be found. Alex is laying in wait in the woods, and opens fire. Mike and several other agents lay down cover fire so Ryan can sneak up behind Alex. »

1.15 The Final Chapter
I didn't watch The Killing, but apparently fans of the programme have said that the ending was less than satisfying. Too many loose ends, too much held over for the next season, too little resolution. The Following will not be having that problem, thanks to a satisfying, tense, and really well done final episode for the first season. Fittingly called The Final Chapter, the book is pretty effectively closed on the Joe Carroll saga while still having a cliffhanger leading into the second season.
For a show that has been pretty brainless throughout its run, it opened very strongly and it ended very strongly, suggesting that the initial 'movie' from writer/creator Kevin Williamson »
Going into the season finale of The Following, I had a lot of reservations.
The series off in a thrilling manner, pitting good vs. evil... revealing the scary possibility that followers were everywhere... showing us that Poe masks were crazy creepy... and teasing Joe Carroll's master plan, which involved his mass cult of killers and his nemesis Ryan Hardy; it was all a fantastic way to suck viewers in. And Kevin Bacon and James Purefoy have been outstanding.
But in the back half of episodes, the show began to tread water in this never-ending cycle of rescuing Joey... fighting random followers... and Ryan never being any step closer to catching or facing off with Joe.
Sure, Ryan Hardy remained a bad ass, but the elements that had accompanied the darkness of the episodes weren't as horrifying after awhile, even if they continued to be graphically violent.

Tonight, The Following wraps up its first season with "The Final Chapter," closing the book on a number of mysteries (and probably characters). But knowing creator Kevin Williamson (and we do), he'll leave us with just as many questions and cliffhangers, especially with a madman like Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) calling the shots. To get you guys some scoop on the finale, we chatted with the ringleader of this serial killer circus, Purefoy, to adequately prepare everyone for what will surely be a season ending we'll be talking about for days after the credits roll: What has the experience been like for you getting in the mind of the brilliant but crazy Joe Carroll? James Purefoy: Absolutely »
On April 29, "The Following" airs its season finale, "The Final Chapter," which promises a long-overdue confrontation between serial killer Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) and former FBI agent Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon).
The Huffington Post talked to Purefoy ahead of "The Following's" season finale, and the British star had plenty to tease about whether either Joe or Ryan could make it out of this season alive, the impending confrontation between the two and where Joe's master plan might take him next.
Joe's already questionable grip on sanity has been steadily unraveling over the past few episodes as more things go wrong for him, so how would you describe his mental state in the finale?
Well, some people have said that he’s mad even for a serial killer, which is a strange thing to say because obviously serial killers are mad. I’m not sure how unhinged you can go »

Tonight is the highly anticipated season finale of Fox’s The Following and fans are waiting to see if all the major questions will be answered. Will Ryan (Kevin Bacon) save both Parker (Annie Parisse) and Claire (Natalie Zea)? Will he catch and/or kill Joe Carroll (James Purefoy)? Is Weston (Shawn Ashmore) secretly a bad guy? EW talked to The Following’s mastermind Kevin Williamson about tonight’s can’t-miss season finale.
Entertainment Weekly: So what can you say about the episode, fittingly called “The Final Chapter.”

"The Following" Season 1 finale airs tonight on Fox, and we recently chatted with Executive Producer Marcos Siega about the finer details of the show, how it evolved to this point, and what will happen next as Joe’s vulnerabilities start to bleed to the surface.
Marcos Siega: Kevin Williamson and I had done "Vampire Diaries" together, and after he left that show and went to "Secret Circle" and I went on another show, we just started talking about some things we could work on together. He had this feature script that he was developing into a television series that he wrote a long time ago. And that is pretty much it--he sent me the pilot script and I fell in love with it. »

This Monday at 9/8c, Fox’s The Following turns the page to “The Final Chapter” — as in the title of its freshman finale. But is Joe Carroll (played by James Purefoy) truly ready to close the book on his and Ryan Hardy’s (Kevin Bacon) game of cat-and-mouse? And whom among the good guys might he take out along the way to his killer coda?
