Icons of Fright Talks Filmmaking Challenges/Successes with Tristan Clay

Imagine co founding a production company, creating three short films and finishing up on the post production details on your first feature. These are endeavors usually only dreamed about with most folks, let alone successfully and passionately completing. What is even more incredibly impressive about all this, is that Mr. Tristan Clay is only 20 years of age and this is his life. Talk about a parents wet dream. When I was 20 I was taking gravity bong hits out of my apartment’s bathtub, but I digress. I was fortunate enough to have a chat with Clay over the phone to discuss his filmmaking origins, how our beloved genre helped him flourish in life, and various other topics.

Tristan’s first feature, entitled Red Eye, had a successful IndieGoGo campaign, with great perks for its contributors (soon to be distributed). Taking all parts of the production seriously, Clay enlisted the talents

The Fall of Bill Cosby: Read People's 2014 Cover Story
Andrea Constand was the first woman to come forward. In January 2005, the Temple University staffer alleged iconic comedian and TV dad Bill Cosby had drugged and sexually assaulted her. The media's coverage of Constand's claims petered out following the filing of a lawsuit against Cosby that was eventually settled out of court. Then, some eight years later, more women started breaking their silence, lodging similar complaints against Cosby. Today, more than 50 women have claimed they were victimized by the television legend. Cosby, through his attorneys, has repeatedly denied the allegations.

‘Star Wars’ Fans and the Media: It’s a Trap!

‘Star Wars’ Fans and the Media: It’s a Trap!
For “Star Wars” fans, the long wait for the next movie in the franchise is almost over, and the media frenzy surrounding its arrival is steadily building. Still, in terms of media outlets that might come knocking in the days and weeks ahead, here’s a warning that should sound familiar: It’s a trap!

Yes, everyone is going to want a piece of “The Force Awakens” action, and that includes news organizations (among them, needless to say, this one), who are eagerly riding the tail of that anticipation to boost ratings and Web traffic. But despite the increased hipness of geek culture thanks to the ascent of movies predicated on comic books and science-fiction or fantasy properties at the box office and on TV, there is still a temptation to mock those who invest so strongly in such fare – people who have taken their “Star Wars” ardor to there’s-no-room-left-in-the-garage extremes.

Fox News Contributor Katherine Timpf Receives Death Threats for Mocking ‘Star Wars’ Fans
Hopefully the force is with Katherine Timpf — because a lot of people appear to have it out for her. Fox News contributor Timpf claims that she has received death threats after making fun of “Star Wars” fans on Fox’s late-night offering “Red Eye.” In an essay for the National Review, Timpf says she cracked wise about “Star Wars” fans, joking, “I have never had any interest in watching space nerds poke each other with their little space nerd sticks, and I’m not going to start now,” as well as,”Yesterday I tweeted something, and all I said was that I wasn’t familiar.

Female Fox News Contributor Gets Death Threats for Mocking Star Wars
Sci-fi fandom's tradition of being chill and welcoming to women continued this week when Fox News contributor Katherine Timpf began receiving death threats for making fun of Star Wars fans. Timpf was appearing on the network's satirical early-morning chat show Red Eye last month when she started talking about previous harassment she'd received at the hands of Star Wars diehards. "I have never had any interest in watching space nerds poke each other with their little space-nerd sticks, and I’m not going to start now," she joked. "You people are crazy ... Yesterday I tweeted something, and all I said was that I wasn’t familiar with Star Wars because I’ve been too busy liking cool things and being attractive — people threatened my life." In response to this mild trolling, a few Star Wars fans reacted by escalating their abuse, sending Timpf detailed death threats and making YouTube manifestos against her.

Grand Old Partiality: Variety Series Emmys Hew to the Left

Grand Old Partiality: Variety Series Emmys Hew to the Left
Twenty-four million people tuned in earlier this month and saw one of the political punchlines of the year.

Donald Trump, answering a question from Fox NewsMegyn Kelly at the first Republican presidential debate, was asked about calling women “fat pigs, dogs, slobs, disgusting animals.”

Trump’s response: “Only Rosie O’Donnell.”

It may have been misogynistic, but it drew audience laughs, as do so many of Trump’s lines.

As candidates spear Democrats, it’ll at least make up for the lack of rightward laughs in latenight, a landscape that has been dominated, for the past decade, by humor that tilts to the left. That is reflected in this year’s Emmy nominees for variety series. The recently ended “The Daily Show With Jon Stewart” — the host’s skewering of Fox News led to plenty of headlines — won the award for 10 years straight, a record. That was broken only by its companion show,

Roger Ailes Talks Megyn Kelly and Her Fox News Future

Roger Ailes Talks Megyn Kelly and Her Fox News Future
Fox News Channel’s ability to capture cable-news viewers is legend, and its success has given rise not only to primetime sensation Megyn Kelly’s “The Kelly File,” but also to everything from Bill O’Reilly’s “The O’Reilly Factor” to wee-hours program “Red Eye.”

To truly understand the network, one must consult Roger Ailes, its chairman and chief executive. He is widely credited as the architect of every show on the 21st Century Fox-owned outlet. His imprimatur is stamped upon every programming change, talent hire and scheduling maneuver at Fox News.

Ailes took a few minutes recently to speak with Variety about a new course for Megyn Kelly: a series of specials, slated for 2016, in which she intends to land big “gets,” or sit-downs with politicians, celebrities and other figures in popular-culture who are making news. Below, Ailes talks about what he sees in Kelly, and offers

‘Greg Gutfeld Show’ Doesn’t Look Ready For Primetime

‘Greg Gutfeld Show’ Doesn’t Look Ready For Primetime
Cable news provides ample comedic fodder for “The Daily Show,” and CNN has become increasingly intent on handing over sizable junks of its lineup to reality-oriented series. Comedy, however, has thus far been largely limited to the unintentional variety – at least, in the eight years since Fox News Channel took a flyer on “The 1/2 Hour News Hour,” a satirical program from “24” co-creator Joel Surnow. Undaunted, Fox has waded back in with “The Greg Gutfeld Show,” whose one-hour premiere seemed more determined to be odd and vaguely surreal than funny or satirical.

Known for his quick and acerbic wit on Fox series like “Red Eye” and “The Five,” Gutfeld represented a logical choice for Fox News CEO Roger Ailes to take another stab at trying something a bit different in primetime. After the opening monologue, however – delivered from behind a desk, without an audience – the principal concern was what the host

Fox News Turns Greg Gutfeld Loose In Sunday-Night Experiment

Come Sunday, Greg Gutfeld will have the opportunity to do something very different at Fox News Channel. He will launch a program that depends as much on humor as it does the headlines.

Gutfeld, who has one of the more eclectic resumes in the business, could blaze new paths at the 21st Century Fox-owned outlet, but he’s not getting ahead of himself. His “Greg Gutfeld Show,” billed as a “comedic news hour,” is something that is not the norm at Fox News or any other cable-news outlet.

“I have a very low bar,” he says during a recent interview. “I don’t want to throw up.” Viewers will get to see if he accomplishes that feat this Sunday at 10 p.m.

Fox News Channel is often the subject of critique by hosts of satirical programs like “The Daily Show.” Now, the network will debut a program that could contain parodies and humorous monologues,

Fox News Channel Developing Weekend Program for Greg Gutfeld
Fox News Channel will develop a one-hour weekend program for Greg Gutfeld, who will leave his duties at wee-hours show “Red Eye” to tackle the new assignment.

A pilot in development will highlight Gutfeld’s “whimsical nature and political satire,” the 21st Century Fox-owned network said in statement Thursday. The show will also “focus on his strong libertarian values and social commentary.”

Gutfeld will continue to serve as co-host of “The Five” and make a weekly appearance on “The O’Reilly Factor.” Rotating hosts will anchor “Red Eye” after Gutfeld signs off from that program Friday. “Red Eye” airs at 3 a.m.
