I haven't seen Disney's "Maleficent" yet so I have no opinion. To go by critics — 50% at Rotten Tomatoes in both the larger compendium and in the "cream of the crop" as well, plus a 56 Metacritic score — it's a divisive affair. In some corners there are even those preferring it to be graded on a curve because it features a female in the lead, while others have bored down to how the story it tells about that female gets at the heart of what's problematic about it being a children's film. Again, I have no take on it, but it's interesting to see the opinions fly from the sidelines. HitFix's Drew McWeeny called the film "Disney's 'I Spit On Your Grave,'" and went so far as to say he'd be keeping his own kids away from the film, which he said is "swollen with psycho-sexual subtext." He gave it »

After watching Maleficent, Disney's live-action twist on their own classic animated tale Sleeping Beauty, it becomes evident that nobody but Angelina Jolie could play one of the greatest villains of all time. Ms. Jolie is magnetic onscreen and can smirk in front of a green screen like nobody's business. Her performance may not win her any awards, but she clearly had fun with the part.
The film filters the story of Sleeping Beauty through a revisionist lens. We get to first meet Maleficent when she is just a young fairy, happily flying through the moor. One day, a young human boy named Stefan literally ends up in her neck of the woods and they become unlikely friends. Over time they even fall in love with each other, but in the grand tradition of many boys, he eventually betrays her. In Stefan's quest to become the king, he cuts off her wings. »

We live in a world in which pointless sequels are thrown at us like balls being hurled at an annoying clown in a dunking tank. Yes, that's a given, but sometimes even we have to wonder just what in the world goes through people's minds.
Bloody Disgusting is reporting that Fox Home Entertainment is moving on a sequel to the 2008 teen-friendly snoozer The Haunting of Molly Hartley. The new film, entitled, The Exorcism of Molly Hartley, will see I Spit on Your Grave's Steven R. Monroe taking on directing duties.
Haley Bennett played Molly in the first film. No word on if she’ll return.
Here's our hope... Steven R. Monroe. Please take this to the darkest, most ghastly and horrific place possible. We love you... love us back!
Apparently the sequel follows Molly Hartley, who, after a night of heavy partying, finds her friends butchered. While locked in a mental hospital for observation, »

Revenge has motivated characters in stories since humans first started telling them. From the vengeful gods of ancient mythology onwards, acts of retribution – often violent in the extreme – have been a staple ingredient of a narrative which, as we all know, is best served cold.
The vengeance motive is certainly one which hands the structure to you on a plate – someone performs an act of injustice against someone else, who then takes the law into their own hands and opts for an eye for an eye rather than the courts of justice. Blue Ruin, on release in cinemas this week, is a classic example of this basic set-up – a lean, effective and sometimes very bloody revenge thriller in which vagrant Dwight (Macon Blair) returns to his childhood home town to kill the man who murdered his parents, unleashing a wave of tit for tat reciprocal violence which escalates out of control. »

There’s no need to make an implication that American filmmakers are failures. That’s not true. Wes Craven, John Carpenter, James Wan, Darren Lynn Bousman, Ti West, and Adam Green are just a few of today’s genre specific visionaries, and they’re delivering the goods.
That said, foreign filmmakers seem to be on an entirely different page.
Perhaps foreign directors simply ignore American productions. That could potentially be a logical line of thought. Think for yourself, don’t follow in already established practice. Perhaps these guys just work with their own vision, refusing to allow any studio to impose. Or, perhaps, these guys around the world, who don’t necessarily leap into horror binges, are capable of manufacturing entirely new ideas.
I’m not certain of the recipe, but I know it works. It works especially well with Norwegian filmmakers, who constantly release pics so far superior to »
