John Malkovich joins Zac Efron in tale of serial killer Ted Bundy

John Malkovich has been added to the awkwardly named thriller Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, in which Zac Efron will play the leading role as notorious serial killer Ted Bundy.

The Con Air actor is set to play Judge Edward Cowert, who presided over Bundy’s trial in 1979 and sentenced him to death. Prior to his execution in 1989, Bundy confessed to the murder of 30 people in seven different states.

‘Wind River’ Review

Review by Matthew Turner

Stars: Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Gil Birmingham, Graham Greene, Jon Bernthal, Julia Jones, Kelsey Asbille, James Jordan | Written and Directed by Taylor Sheridan

Avengers co-stars Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen headline this snowbound mystery thriller from Taylor Sheridan, the writer of Sicario and Hell or High Water. Gripping and moving in equal measure, it’s being billed as Sheridan’s “proper” directorial debut, which probably says everything you need to know about his actual debut, the little-seen 2011 horror flick Vile.

Set in the remote Wind River Reservation in Wyoming, the film opens with a young Native American woman (Kelsey Asbille) running for her life, barefoot, in sub-zero conditions in the wintery wilderness. When she’s found, frozen to death, an autopsy reveals that she was raped, prompting the arrival of Vegas-based FBI agent Jane Banner (Olsen), who teams up with Native American sheriff Ben (Greene) to investigate.

Taylor Sheridan Waited to Prove Himself as a Storyteller Before Directing ‘Wind River’

Taylor Sheridan Waited to Prove Himself as a Storyteller Before Directing ‘Wind River’
After a long journey to the big screen, “Wind River” made its way to The Theatre at Ace Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles on Wednesday. Writer-director Taylor Sheridan was joined at the premiere by Elizabeth Olsen, Jeremy Renner, Jon Bernthal, and Gil Birmingham.

The Weinstein Company’s “Wind River” made its debut earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival to positive reviews, and eventually made its way to Cannes, where Sheridan won best director in the Un Certain Regard sidebar. In his first directorial effort in six years — after he helmed his first film: the little-known 2011 microbudget indie-horror “Vile” — Sheridan describes his process as a “constant evolution.”

“Once I finished ‘Sicario,’ I knew I wanted to follow it up with ‘Hell or High Water,’” Sheridan said. “It’s something I’ve been waiting for, and have been patient with, until I had proven myself as a storyteller and [been] trusted with the responsibility.”

The official lineup for the 70th Cannes Film Festival, which will run from May 18–28, was announced April 13. While a few more screenings will undoubtably be added as we creep nearer to the festival, the selections announced feature a lot worth getting excited over — including, for the first time, two television shows (Twin Peaks and Top of the Lake) and a virtual reality film (Carne y Arena). Also, considering that The Killing of a Sacred Deer and The Beguiled are both in the main competition, there is, assuming equal probability, an 11.1% chance that a film starring Nicole Kidman and Colin Farrell will take home the top prize. Considering

This year, the festival jury will be headed by acclaimed Spanish director Pedro Almodovar, with French actress Sandrine Kiberlain presiding over the Camera d’Or jury and Romanian

Production companies join forces for 3-Feature Louisiana Slate

Two's company and three's a crowd--but four can soar! At least that's what the good folks at haRFMFul Productions, Sick Puppy Pictures, MOnsterworks66 and Lion Arch Productions believe as they prep a three-feature slate to shoot in Louisiana later this year or early in 2016!

Rycke Foreman (haRMFul), Phil Condit (Sick Puppy), Maria Olsen (MO66) and Lionel Archuleta (Lion Arch) are developing a slate of three horror-comedies for production in Louisiana and are presently attaching cast and finalizing budgets before approaching La. investors. The three films, Happy Ending, Hacked Off and Grizzled! (#Hehog) are all zany romps through HorCom Land featuring lovely ladies, buckets of blood, hunky heroes and terrifyingly funny Big Bads.

The films may all live in the same genre, but they each have their own special stamp of entertaining insanity:

Exclusive: 'Another Bleeding Love Story' starts principal photography

Another Bleeding Love Story, the quirky serial killer love story that Jesus approves of, started production in Baltimore, MD, in early January. A joint production between Austin Sheeley and MOnsterworks66’s Maria Olsen, this horrifically hilarious tale follows two young serial killers, Lily and Lucas, as they negotiate the arduous tasks of living and killing in modern society.

Lucas, played by Sheeley, is a Mommy’s Boy with Mommy Issues thanks to, and this isn’t a wild guess, his mommy, Catherine (Olsen Starry Eyes, Another, Vile, The Haunting of Whaley House). Now he’s decided to take his issues out on every middle aged woman he can get his hands – and his knife – on, but everything’s ok as Jesus has literally given him the “thumbs up” for the killings.

While divinely inspired to rid the world of these women, Lucas encounters Lily, a sociopathic teacher, whose main goal

Breaking News: MOnsterworks66 and Dismal Productions team up to produce Horror feature 'Squeal: The Harvest'

By Terry Farmer,

The latest news from Hollywoodland is that two horror powerhouses – Seth Metoyer and Bill Obert Jr’s Dismal Productions and Maria Olsen’s MOnsterworks66 – have joined forces to bring their rabid horror fans Squeal: The Harvest, a dark and sordid feature that will leave audiences gasping and, yes, squealing!

Michael Hultquist (Arena, Victim) has written a cracker of a script exploring murder, mutilation and mayhem, and the cast will be headed by the ultra-creepy Oberst as Uncle Ollie. Oberst is probably best known for winning a Daytime Emmy award for his role in the internet sensation Take This Lollipop, which was actually blocked on Facebook under suspicion of being a malicious app when it was first released. His other on-screen horror triumphs include Children of Sorrow, Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies, The Shunning and Deadly Revisions.

Squeal will also feature Olsen in a supporting role, and

It’s a very light week this week, so let us breakdown the new releases and highlight what you should – and shouldn’t – be buying from today, January 14th 2013.

Pick Of The Week

Dredd (DVD/Blu-ray)

The future America is an irradiated waste land. On its East Coast, running from Boston to Washington DC, lies Mega City One–a vast, violent metropolis where criminals rule the chaotic streets. The only force of order lies with the urban cops called “Judges” who possess the combined powers of judge, jury and instant executioner. Known and feared throughout the city, Dredd (Karl Urban, The Lord of the Rings, Star Trek) is the ultimate Judge, challenged with ridding the city of its latest scourge–a

Blu-ray Review: Vile


Stars: Eric Jay Beck, April Matson, Akeem Smith, Greg Cipes, Elisha Skorman, Heidi Mueller, Maya Hazen, Rob Kirkland | Written by Eric Jay Beck, Rob Kowsaluk | Directed by Taylor Sheridan

Ah, the torture-porn genre, how I’ve missed you. Not really. But it does seem that every year FrightFest manages to pull a new example of the genre out of the woodwork for the delictation of the baying horror-loving audience in attendance. Last year we had The Tortured, this year its Vile, And interestingly the two are not that disimilar…

Like many a horror film before it, Vile asks the age-old question: “How far would you go to stay alive?” In this case our eight protagonists, all of whom are kidnapped, have tubes attached to their brains and then locked in an abandoned house, are tasked with seeing how much pain and torture they can take, if it means living so see another day.

Full 2012 Black List of Best Unproduced Scripts

Every year, film executive Franklin Leonard releases his list, called The Black List, of most-liked unproduced screenplays in Hollywood. This year's list was compiled from the suggestions of 290 film executives, each of whom picked up to ten of their favorite scripts. Since the list started in 2004, many screenplays ended up being turned into films. In 2005, two of the top three scripts were "Lars and the Real Girl" which was nominated for Best Original Screenplay Oscar, and "Juno" which actually won the Oscar. See the 2012 Black List below, broken up by how many votes each screenplay received. Some of the projects are already in the works. 65 - Draft Day (Rajiv Joseph, Scott Rothman) On the day of the NFL Draft, Bills General Manager Sonny Weaver has the opportunity to save football in Buffalo when he trades for the number one pick. He must quickly decide what he's willing to sacrifice in

Draft Day, A Country of Strangers & Rodham Top the 2012 Black List

There is either a couple of football fans or Jerry Maguire/Moneyball with this year’s most liked unproduced screenplay. Close to 300 hundred film executives provided with the Black List creators a top ten of their favorite screenplays of the year and the consensus first overall pick (with 65 votes) comes from the recently featured in Variety (10 Screenwriters to Watch 2012) tandem of Rajiv Joseph & Scott Rothman and their drama which has nothing to do with enlisting in the armed forces. Draft Day – about the day in the life of a fictitious Buffalo Bills Gm appears to currently be in turnaround — which only means I expect to see this greenlight perhaps a little later than sooner – worth noting: top spot almost guarantees that the film will indeed go into production (2006, 2010 and 2011 are the exceptions.) Among the more alluring logline subjects we find on the list, I’d be keen on reading the

Exclusive Announcement: 'Something Sinister' Begins Shooting

By Seth Metoyer,

On December 1st, 2012 principal photography for Something Sinister will begin/, the incredibly suspenseful and creepy horror feature that’s being brought to you by Christopher Dye of Dyenamic Films and Maria Olsen of MOnsterworks66.

Something Sinister promises to be a stunning throwback to the age of Hitchcockian smart horror as the tension builds from scene to scene and the whys and wherefores are only revealed in the final climactic scenes. Brooding and unquiet, haunting and eerie, "Something Sinister" will appeal to those who enjoy a good dash of mystery with their horror, and this film has a story that will keep you guessing until the end.

A terse and contained four-hander, Something Sinister stars Rachel Appelbaum (Just Seen It) as the enchanting – and possibly delusion ingénue, Amelia – and Jeremy Gladen (Hellementary: An Education in Death) as her perhaps-not-so-innocent beau, Eric. Rounding out the cast is
