Blu-ray Review – Psycho II (1983)

31 July 2017 3:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Psycho II, 1983.

Directed by Richard Franklin.

Starring Anthony Perkins, Vera Miles, Meg Tilly, Robert Loggia, Dennis Franz, Hugh Gillin, and Tom Holland.

Synopsis:

22 years after he was incarcerated for murder Norman Bates is declared sane and released back to his motel but Mother isn’t likely to let him live a peaceful life.

Sequels to acknowledged classic movies often bring about derision and a bit of a sniffy attitude, especially belated ones not made by the original crew or featuring different actors, but every so often a worthy successor appears just to prove there are exceptions. Psycho II appeared in 1983, 23 years after Alfred Hitchcock’s seminal original, and reunites original cast members Anthony Perkins and Vera Miles but with Hitchcock having died in 1980 Universal Pictures turned to Richard Franklin, one of his students, to helm the project, based on a script written by Tom Holland (Fright Night/Child’s Play »

‘To the Bone’: Why Marti Noxon Used Her Directorial Debut to Tell Such a Personal Story

14 July 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Editor’s Note: This article is presented in partnership with Netflix’s original film “To the Bone” – now streaming on Netflix.

For her feature directorial debut, Marti Noxon turned to familiar material: her own life. Her Sundance premiere “To the Bone” is loosely based on her own experiences with eating disorders and recovery, framed around the darkly funny journey of a young woman battling anorexia named Ellen (Lily Collins) as she attempts a radical treatment that offers her what is likely her last chance at survival.

Noxon is already a major name in the television space, best known for writing and producing series such as the beloved “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” (where she was mentored by Joss Whedon) and more recently “UNreal.” She’s dabbled in film before, including penning scripts for Rick Rosenthal’s late-’90s romantic comedy “Just a Little Harmless Sex” and the 2011 remake of “Fright Night. »

Evil Ed – The Blu Review

2 July 2017 5:01 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Review by Roger Carpenter

What do you get when you mix a bunch of Swedish horror film fans with little film experience and no money but a great deal of gumption?  Why, Evil Ed, of course!

Evil Ed is both a tale of horror as well as a tale of stick-to-it-ness that all aspiring filmmakers should hear, and both are equally entertaining.  Some Swedish kids who grew up on American horror films courtesy of the first video boom and who shared a common goal of making a film that could play in theaters started experimenting with the tools of the trade.  Their first feature was never actually completed before they ran out of steam, but the nucleus of that group, Anders Jacobsen, Goran Lundstrom, and “Doc,” moved right into what would become Evil Ed.  They took the nucleus of a story, about a docile, henpecked film editor forced to cut »

Lily Collins is on the Road to Recovery in Trailer for ‘To the Bone’

21 June 2017 6:22 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Premiering at Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, To the Bone marks the directorial debut of Buffy the Vampire Slayer writer Marti Noxon. Led by Lily Collins, it tells the story of a young adult afflicted with anorexia and her battle in attempting to overcome it. Set for a release on Netflix next month, the first trailer has now arrived for the film also starring Keanu Reeves, Carrie Preston, Lili Taylor, Alex Sharp, Liana Liberato, Brooke Smith, and Ciara Bravo.

“Written and directed by Marti Noxon, To the Bone is an occasionally harrowing drama geared towards the Ya crowd from a filmmaker that knows the terrain well, having written Fright Night and I Am Number Four, as well as TV shows Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Glee, and Angel,” we said in our review. “Exploring eating disorders, the film is fronted by a strong performance by Lily Collins as Ellen, a 20-year old artist from an upper middle-class household living with this battle. While the script is occasionally quite frank and knows the territory it’s exploring well, it falls back on the same tropes you’d expect from a network TV series, creating artificial drama and an attempt at a loveably quirky character that derails the entire picture.”

Check out the trailer below.

A young anorexic woman reluctantly enters an unconventional treatment program, where she bonds with other residents struggling with eating disorders.

To the Bone hits Netflix on July 14. »

Newswire: Get Involved, Internet: Help fund a documentary on It and the legacy of creepy clowns

28 May 2017 3:07 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

With the remake of It on the way, there’s no better time to look back at director Tommy Lee Wallace’s original 1990 miniseries adaptation of Stephen King’s horror novel, and that’s exactly what the filmmakers behind RoboDoc: The Creation Of RoboCop and You’re So Cool, Brewster! The Story Of Fright Night are planning to do—if they can raise enough money, that is. The team has launched an Indiegogo page to fund a new film project called Pennywise: The Story Of It, and they’re looking to raise about $25,000 to pay for the travel and production that the documentary will require.

This isn’t just a bunch of fans talking about It, though, as the Indiegogo page explains that they’ve lined up interviews with a whole bunch of people who worked on or appeared in the original miniseries, including Tommy Lee Wallace ...

Crypt of Curiosities: Something Fishy – A Look at “Gillsploitation” Films

12 May 2017 12:32 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Every horror fan has their favorite type of monster. Some people love shambling zombies, others prefer squid-faced aliens from beyond the stars, and I’m sure there are a few people out there who would swear that The Mangler is the greatest beast to grace the silver screen. But for me, one archetype has always reigned supreme: the scaly fish-man.

I can’t explain why, but ever since I was a kid, sea life has always interested me, so it should come as no surprise that as far as famous monsters go, the Gill-man’s always been my favorite. Unfortunately, being a fan of the Gill-man can lead to some issues. Unlike Dracula, Frankenstein, and The Mummy, the Gill-man was an original creation of Universal, and as such, was not in the public domain. So, while there are many great films bearing those iconic names, the Creature from the Black Lagoon only has three, »

Arrow in the House! Arrow Films Releases 'House: Two Stories'

Reviewed by Kevin Scott,

MoreHorror.com

As a long time horror film fan, it’s pretty easy for me to rattle off a list of some of my highest recommends from primary horror genres all the way to the really out there sub genres. Usually all I need is a conversation sparker, or even someone remotely interested in listening. When I’m musing over all those conversations, there’s no doubt about it that the most difficult recommendations to make are the gateway horror films.

There’s several reasons why even the most solid recommendation maker is going find the gauntlet thrown down when asked about “starter” horror flicks. It’s a delicate situation that has to be handled with the most absolute contemplation and finesse. I could throw any film out to a hardcore horror fan without any concern for the subject matter, it just has to be good. »
