Do you know what really grinds my gears? Terrible plot twists, that’s what.
Everyone’s had this experience before: there you are, enjoying a perfectly serviceable romance/thriller/drama/action/horror/[insert odd subgenre here] flick, when, suddenly, you’re shocked out of your seat, and not in a good way.
You’ve just witnessed a ruinously bad plot twist that has the net effect of obliterating any shred of credibility your film of choice may have once possessed. Please know that you have my deepest sympathies, and if you need to talk to anyone to help you get through this tough time, our comment boards are always open to you.
Terrible plot twists are the ultimate in awful movie-watching experiences. Sadly, that doesn’t mean they’re uncommon. And unfortunately, I’ve seen more than my share of good films destroyed by ridiculous, strange, unjustified or just plain dumb twists. What this »

Actor, director and screenwriter Matt Thompson is a man with the same quintessential questions we have about the supernatural forces that have been with us forever. Ten years after his initial idea for the Osiris Films horror movie Bloodline, the film is finally ready for a September 27, 2013 release. A true labor of love guided by gut instinct, providence and daring “just go for it” faith, Matt chatted over the phone with Cinelinx writer Kyra Dawson to tell us all about the experience of wearing 3 hats in the production of Bloodline. Juggling the filmmaker triad of roles -- screenwriter, actor and director -- is a daunting effort that only a daring few are willing or intrepid enough to attempt. Come inside and see what took place on set at Bloodline and find out if Matt believes in curses and possession.
Bloodline has a logline that reads, “Terror Has Awakened”. By the »

Today we have the first Riddick clip and the redband trailer just incase you have missed it. Riddick will hit theaters on Sept 6 2013. The film has officially been branded the dreaded Rrating but given Riddicks following (the first two combined have raked in more than 150 million worldwide) that may not slow ticket sales too much. In addition to Diesel and Urban Dave Bautista (The Man with the Iron Fists) Katee Sackhoff (Halloween Resurrection) Nolan Gerard Funk (Deadgirl) Bokeem Woodbine (Devil) Raoul Trujillo (Cowboys Aliens) and Keri Hilson (Easy A) also star. »
Last weekend marked the long awaited theatrical release of You're Next, a home invasion horror flick that premiered on the festival circuit just about a full two years ago, way back in September of 2011. (Check out our review here.) Is it uncommon for such a highly praised film to take so long to enter our lives? Well, not exactly. Today we take a look back at ten other horror films that also spent a lot of time on the shelf before getting released, the majority of which ended up becoming big time fan favorites. Go figure! Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer Though widely regarded as one of the best and most disturbing horror films the genre has ever seen, John McNaughton's real-life-inspired Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer was made in 1986 but not released until 1990. Several factors contributed to the delay, but it was the film's extremely graphic content that was largely responsible, »

Riddick has been a long time coming, but now it is here and fans of the cult anti-hero played by Vin Diesel certainly got an eye-full as the third film in the trilogy came to Comic-Con 2013 with a panel and a new, gory, red-band trailer. Watch it above.
The story of Riddick sees the titular Furion captured by a group of bounty hunters (whose ranks include BSG star Katie Sackhoff, Devil star Bokeem Woodbine and Guardians of the Galaxy star Dave Bautista), only to have the situation take a turn for the deadly when the hunters and Riddick find themselves as prey for a planet full of grotesque monsters. Basically a setup pretty much similar to Pitch Black.

The Cast: Matt Murdock/Daredevil: As a child, Matt was brought up by his father and boxer, Battlin' Jack Murdock in Hell's Kitchen of New York. When his father started working for a mobster, Matt started training himself just in case. Eventually, he came across a blind man who was about to get hit by a truck. Matt jumped in front of the truck, pushing the blind man out of the way. The truck was carrying radioactive waste, which spilled out, hitting Matt's eyes. This caused him to go blind, which also caused his senses to heighten as a result. He now serves as a lawyer in New York by day, but by night, he becomes the vigilante known as the Daredevil.

After cinematic atrocities like The Village, The Happening, and The Last Airbender, writer-director M. Night Shyamalan became such a joke to the degree that his name on the trailer for Devil--for which he earned a story credit.got laughs from moviegoers across America. Little wonder then that Columbia Pictures carefully hid his writer and director credits on the marketing for the Will Smith/Jaden Smith vanity project vehicle After Earth. But doing press for the picture, the twist-obsessed filmmaker has revealed something truly shocking: he was the ghostwriter for popular 1999 teen-centered rom-com She's All That. Speaking with Movies.com, Shyamalan spoke about his range, and then admitted that The Sixth Sense (which he wrote and directed) and Stuart Little (which he has a screenplay credit on) were not the only 1999 movies he worked on. After teasing he'd ghost-written a movie that year as well, he confesses: "I ghost-wrote the »

After Earth, 2013.
Directed by M. Night Shyamalan
A crash landing leaves Kitai Raige and his father Cypher stranded on Earth, 1,000 years after events forced humanity's escape. With Cypher injured, Kitai must embark on a perilous journey to signal for help.
Not too long ago director M. Night Shyamalan was considered one of the best up and coming directors. He made a very chilling film with The Sixth Sense, managed to keep up the quality with his second film Unbreakable, then did a nice job exploring sci-fi genre with Signs. Ever since then his films have consistently gotten worse and worse. With the exception of Devil, which he wrote and I thought was decent, everything from The Village to The Last Airbender has been completely awful. Now he's teaming up with Will Smith, one »

Chicago – Oscar accolades are a godsend, but so are they an affliction. They’re the ultimate vote of respect from your industry, but then you’ve got to keep being as genius as they thought you were. In M. Night Shyamalan’s case, it’s all gone downhill since his 1999 smash-hit “The Sixth Sense,” which was nominated for six of these portly golden statues. Now attaching his name to a movie does it more destruction than good.
After first trying to emulate Alfred Hitchock and failing to, Shyamalan shifted to attempting a blockbuster with 2010’s “The Last Airbender,” which won at the box office but failed with critics. Back for redemption in 2013, he teamed up with the most mismatched kin you could imagine: the profitable Hollywood family comprised of Will, Jaden, Jada Pinkett and Caleeb Pinkett Smith.
The result of Shyamalan trying to evidence he could rise to J.J. Abrams »

Ten years ago, M. Night Shyamalan was on top of the world, touted as “the next Spielberg” by Newsweek and fresh off a string of successes including the Oscar-nominated smash The Sixth Sense, the Bruce Willis superhero origin story Unbreakable, and the alien thriller Signs, which would be Mel Gibson’s last studio hit. But things have changed: The filmmaker who could once open a movie on his moniker alone has a new film coming out today, the sci-fi story After Earth, where his name doesn’t appear in the key marketing materials at all. It’s only the latest setback for Shyamalan, whose career woes have been compounded by giddy press reports chronicling his fall from grace, including a memorable round of media attention in 2010 when audiences supposedly booed his title card in the trailer for the horror film Devil, which Shyamalan produced. Where did it all go wrong? »
