Creativity makes up for a lot. Particularly, within filmmaking, creativity makes up for a lack of money. My favorite independent, low budget/no budget films, are ones that use creativity to the best of their ability. When cast, and crew take every chance they're given to make the most out of the little they have to work with. This is where “Three Tears” shines the strongest.
Three Tears on Bloodstained Flesh tells the story of Dominic Merrick, who comes back to his hometown, with his troubled daughter, after his niece is murdered. There is clearly foul play afoot, but the locals act as if nothing is wrong. Now Dominic must work to uncover the truth that plagues this quaint town, and it's inhabitants. The only real question, »
Rick Baker has worked on classic films such as “Hellboy”, “An American Werewolf in London”, “The Ring”, and “The Rocketeer” to list a few. Now, Baker has brought his talents to recreate The Joker from Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s “Death of the Family” arc. Back in July, 2012 Greg Capullo had this to say about his interpretation of The Joker, Capullo: "You know, I'm happy to be doing this because I look at it as an opportunity to have fun. So no, this is going to be a blast. Let's put it this way. I would have put my own slant on the way the Joker looks traditionally anyway. Now I can go down the road of, like, Texas Chainsaw Massacre stuff. And I'm a heavy metal guy, so stuff like Slipknot pops in my head, you know? So I'm going, "Yeah! Something really, really dark and creepy!" It amplifies it. »

He will play David Hamilton, the son of Tony (Dean Andrews) and Lydia (Geraldine Somerville). David has held his family together while his father was in prison, and has sacrificed going to university to look after his parents following a family tragedy.
Strike said of his role: 'I'm a fan of Silent Witness, so when the opportunity arose to be a part of it, I jumped at the chance.
"I really admire David Drury as a director, so to work with him is very exciting. It's always great to play a character outside of your comfort zone, especially on a platform as successful as Silent Witness."

She’ll play Lizzy, a young nurse at a mental hospital who is kidnapped by a group of deranged teenage patients. Trapped with young sadists only starting to embrace their capacity for evil, she finds herself on a road trip from hell with her only hope being an obsessed lawman (Stephen Dorff) with an axe to grind. Little do any of them know that, during the chase, one of the teens’ minds will be warped and disfigured into the terrifying figure known as Leatherface.
Grasse, out of the University of Leeds’ theater program, won the role because of her naturalistic audition and sense of innocence, beating out over 90 young actresses in and outside the U.S. after a grueling casting search. She’ll be joined in »

The casting continues for the upcoming Texas Chainsaw Massacre prequel Leatherface, with one familiar and one not-so-familiar face now added to the roster. Lili Taylor, with her newfound horror mojo following The Conjuring, will be young Leatherface's mom Vera Sawyer. And newcomer Vanessa Grasse has nabbed the female lead as Lizzy, a nurse at a mental institution who's kidnapped and taken on a road trip by inmates, one of whom is our boy before the mask.The new Chainsaw film follows 2013's hapless Texas Chainsaw 3D as the eighth film in the scrappy franchise. It's the second to be called Leatherface, following Jeff Burr's third instalment in 1990 starring a young Viggo Mortensen. It's also the second attempt at a prequel, after Jonathan Liebesman's Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning in 2006.Like Liebesman's film, the new Leatherface is following the hulking killer's early years in the 1970s, although in »
After horrifying audiences as a haunted mother in The Conjuring, Lili Taylor is heading back to the world of horror with a supporting role – also as a tormented matriarch, albeit of a different ilk – in Millenium’s Leatherface, a prequel to the Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise.
She joins Stephen Dorff, Sam Strike, James Bloor, Sam Coleman and Jessica Madsen in the flick, which Millenium recently revealed centers on “a young nurse who is kidnapped by four violent teens who escape from a mental hospital and take her on a road trip from hell. Pursued by an equally deranged lawman out for revenge, one of these teens is destined for tragedy and horrors that will destroy his mind, molding him into the monster we now call Leatherface.”

The actress replaces Angela Bettis, who was originally down to play the character but dropped out due to a scheduling conflict.
Leatherface will focus on the teen's escape from a mental hospital and kidnap of a young nurse. He and other escapees are then chased by an equally crazed lawman looking for revenge.
Ahead of its release later this month, Warner Bros. Pictures has debuted a new trailer for the disaster epic San Andreas, which reunites Dwayne Johnson with Journey 2: The Mysterious Island director Brad Peyton and pits The Rock against the most destructive earthquake the world has ever seen.
After the infamous San Andreas Fault finally gives, triggering a magnitude 9 earthquake in California, a search and rescue helicopter pilot (Dwayne Johnson) and his estranged wife make their way together from Los Angeles to San Francisco to save their only daughter.
But their treacherous journey north is only the beginning. And when they think the worst may be over…it’s just getting started.

Lili Taylor, who starred in Abel Ferrara’s 1994 NYC vampire film The Addiction and put in a properly awards-worthy performance in James Wan’s The Conjuring will return to horror in the upcoming Texas Chainsaw prequel, Leatherface. In reporting Leatherface’s presence at the Cannes Market, Deadline revealed Taylor has joined Stephen Dorff, Angela Bettis and young…

“Chewie, we’re back for Episode 3 of the Flickering Myth Movie Show.”
In the May edition of The Flickering Myth Movie Show, we go trailer crazy, disecting and discussing the latest teaser for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and having an alternative look at the cameos in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
We’re also looking at the state of the Marvel Cinematic Universe after the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron. Who is in the new line-up? How many more gems does Thanos need for his funky gauntlet? What can we now expect leading into Captain America: Civil War?
And if that wasn’t enough Marvel fun, our very own Luke Owen sits down with Daredevil star Charlie Cox to chat about the Avengers, who he’d like the Man Without Fear to team up with and what can we expect from the just-announced Season 2.

No two horror fans are alike, and our differing tastes is a large part of why horror remains such a successful genre. Fear is universal, but what exactly inspires that fear varies from person to person. Over on Halloween Love, journalist John Squires tagged me in a “10 Random Horror Questions” survey that’s been circulating on YouTube. Getting to know a writer can help you determine who’s opinion you most align with when looking for film recommendations. I challenge the rest of the Icons crew to do the same.
1. What was the first horror movie you remember watching?
My mother has always loved horror movies. My dad was the type of person that loved to scare other people, but hated being scared. This meant that my mom would often watch horror alone, until they had me. Thinking that I would just be too young to remember, my mom would »

There’s a very fine line between making a poster that’s artistic and beautiful, but also recognizable as something from a movie. If you go too far one way, it might be obscure. The other way? A lazy, photoshop mashup. It’s a true talent to be able to ride that line, and the latest piece by […]

All week long our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century. Click here for a complete list of our essays. I was one of the first to select years for this particular exercise, which probably allowed me to select the correct year. The answer is, of course, 1974 and all other answers are wrong. No matter what your criteria happens to be, 1974 is going to come out on top. Again, this is not ambiguous or open to debate. We have to start, of course, with the best of the best. "Chinatown" is one of the greatest movies ever made. You can't structure a thriller better than Robert Towne and Roman Polanski do, nor shoot a Los Angeles movie better than John Alonzo has done. Jack Nicholson and Faye Dunaway give the best performances of their careers, which is no small achievement. If you ask »

Once again, rather strangely, heading to British TV for its young cast, Texas Chainsaw Massacre prequel Leatherface has just gained Jessica Madsen. The Mr. Selfridge actress joins Sam Strike (Eastenders) and James Bloor (Dci Banks).The new Chainsaw film follows 2013's hapless Texas Chainsaw 3D as the eighth film in the scrappy franchise. It's the second to be called Leatherface, following Jeff Burr's third instalment in 1990 starring a young Viggo Mortensen. It's also the second attempt at a prequel, after Jonathan Liebesman's Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning in 2006.Like Liebesman's film, the new Leatherface is following the hulking killer's early years in the 1970s, although in this case we'll find him in his teens before he dons the mask and picks up the saw. It seems to be a mystery revolving around three teenage psychopaths, one of whom will grow up brain William Vail with a hammer and endlessly chase Marilyn Burns. »
All week long our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century. Click here for a complete list of our essays. How to decide in the grand scheme of things which film year stands above all others? History gives us no clear methodology to unravel this thorny but extremely important question. Is it the year with the highest average score of movies? So a year that averages out to a B + might be the winner over a field strewn with B’s, despite a few A +’s. Or do a few masterpieces lift up a year so far that whatever else happened beyond those three or four films is of no consequence? Both measures are worthy, and the winner by either of those would certainly be a year not to be sneezed at. But I contend the only true measure of a year’s »
