Film Review: ‘Oculus’ Succeeds Psychologically, Fails Supernaturally

12 April 2014 2:49 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Films in general are knocked for being knockoffs of something else. Horror films in particular have it especially hard in the “new” department because we’re so quickly annoyed when we’ve “seen it all before”.

There are only so many ways to alter how you draw a circle. At the end of the day, you’ve still drawn a circle and the only difference is how you got there.

Rating: 3.0/5.0

Oculus” starts with promise because Jason Blum is attached to it. Blum’s production company, Blumhouse Productions, is responsible for so many Hollywood horror films as of late that it’s impossible for your concept of horror in the past decade not to be impacted by him.

Just to name a few, we’re talking about “Paranormal Activity” (2007), “Paranormal Activity 2” (2010),” “Paranormal Activity 3” (2011), “Sinister” (2012), “Paranormal Activity 4” (2012), “The Purge” (2013)”, “Insidious: Chapter 2” (2013), “Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones »

The Den Review

24 February 2014 8:26 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The internet is a vile, abhorrent, perverse beast. Need proof besides the countless websites of illegal pornography, shared videos of actual human deaths, and constant accreditation of the “Brony” culture? Please, look no further than a brilliant idea turned into a cesspool for perverts – Chatroulette. Don’t lie, we’ve all gotten hammered one night (many nights) in college and scoured this video chat service looking for some debaucherous internet lulz, only to stumble upon an endless parade of naked men beating their meat for the world to see. Give a man the technology to communicate with any inch of the globe on command, promoting cultural knowledge and uninterrupted encounters with countless interesting people, and all he’ll end up with is a sticky keyboard apparently. Right, and you’re going to argue that society isn’t screwed?

Enter Zachary Donohue, a first time writer/director who noticed the inherent »

Catfish Directors Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman Take on Nerve

10 February 2014 5:01 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Catfish directors Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman have signed on to direct an adaptation of Jeanne Ryan's young adult novel Nerve.

The story centers on a teenager named Vee, who is lured in to join a global, online game of truth or dare, where an audience of "watchers" around the globe vote and comment on her performance. She is teamed up with a young man named Ian, and as they continue to advance through the game, they realize they just might be playing with their lives, as the game grows more and more dangerous. The book was published in 2012 by Penguin, and has been translated into six different languages.

Jessica Sharzer, a writer and producer for FX's American Horror Story, wrote the screenplay adaptation, with Allison Shearmur producing. No production schedule was given.

Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman made their directing debut with the controversial Catfish, before moving on to »

Catfish Directors Henry Joost & Ariel Schulman to Helm Nerve Adaptation for Lionsgate

10 February 2014 1:32 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

With only two installments left in the highly lucrative Hunger Games series, Lionsgate/Summit is continuing to mine Ya properties for feature film fare, and now Heat Vision reports that Lionsgate has tapped Catfish directors Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman to direct an adaptation of the Jeanne Ryan novel Nerve.  The story revolves around a high school senior who takes part in a global online game of truth or dare that plays out as “watchers” vote and comment (with her fate left to internet commenters, what could possibly go wrong?).  As the game escalates and the girl advances higher and higher, she finds herself in grave danger. Joost and Schulman followed up the provocative Catfishwith Paranormal Activity 3 and Paranormal Activity 4, but they’re currently in pre-production on an untitled thriller for Blumhouse so Nerve likely won’t be their next film.  That being said, this certainly feels like »

Movie Poster of the Week: “A Field in England” and the Posters of Jay Shaw

7 February 2014 1:13 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Two years ago, almost to the day, I posted a piece about the Mondo poster for Ben Wheatley’s Kill List on the day of that film’s opening. The poster was designed by a new up and coming designer named Jay Shaw whom I interviewed for the piece. At the time he’d been designing posters “for a little over a year.” Two years later and a new Wheatley film, A Field in England, opens today (in between Wheatley made another Mpotw favorite, Sightseers) with an official release poster by Jay Shaw for Drafthouse Films.

In the interim, Shaw has become one of the most exciting and sought after movie poster designers in the country. His work is consistently witty, arresting and superbly executed. His uncharacteristically colorful poster for the psychedelic war story A Field in England nods to the lysergic fever dreams of Jodorowsky (and also has an interesting, »

New Collingswood Story Coming; Paranormal Activity 4 Legal Matter Settled

22 January 2014 12:43 PM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

A while back we told you about a lawsuit concerning The Collingswood Story and Paranormal Activity 4. Today we reached out to director Mike Costanza for an update on that situation, but we got a whole lot more. Read on for details.

In terms of the lawsuit Costanza tells us, "This was a matter that was very important to me and I am pleased that the matter has been resolved amicably." That's very cool to hear, but what he dropped on us next was Extremely juicy...

"The fact remains that Collingswood was put on the map by the online horror community," says Costanza. "That's pretty damn cool considering the film had zero distribution at the time. Collingswood then screened at festivals like FrightFest in London, Fearless Tales in San Francisco, and won awards such as Best Indie Film and Best Cast. Then the late, great Mo Claridge of Anchor Bay »

Paranormal Activity 5: Katie Featherston Returns and New Character Details Revealed

16 January 2014 10:35 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

2013 marked the first year fans didn't get to see a Paranormal Activity movie since the micro-budget franchise first launched in 2009. Thankfully, there will be a double-dose of found-footage fright this year, with the recently-released spin-off Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones and Paranormal Activity 5, arriving in theaters October 25. As is normally the case, no plot details have been confirmed regarding Paranormal Activity 5, although today we do have information about the new characters Paramount and the producers are currently casting.

The main characters are Ryan, a video game designer who recently relocated his family from New York to Palo Alto, California, for his new job at Rockstar Games. The producers are seeking an actor between the ages of 26 and 31 to play the character, who is described as a "big kid." Ryan's wife Emily is described as somewhat of a hippie who is into organic food, yoga, the arts and music, »

Exclusive Video Interview With The Cast Of Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones

7 January 2014 8:26 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones, the long running horror franchise succeeds in making a rebound after the disappointment that was Paranormal Activity 4. Not so much a sequel as it is a spin-off, the film takes a different approach to the series by focusing on a working class Latino family that lives in an apartment complex when that haunting we’ve all become familiar with in these movies starts up again. It also has an ending which succeeds in putting the entire Paranormal Activity franchise on its head, and you have to see it to believe it.

Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones tells the story of Jesse (Andrew Jacobs), a recent high school graduate who, along with his friends Hector (Jorge Diaz) and Marisol (Gabrielle Walsh), start to investigate strange occurrences in their building when their downstairs neighbor ends up dying under mysterious circumstances. But in the process, Jesse »

Paranormal Activity has endgame planned

7 January 2014 12:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The makers of Paranormal Activity have a conclusion planned for the series.

Christopher Landon, who wrote and directed the new spinoff The Marked Ones, promised that the franchise is moving towards an 'endgame'.

"It started when we were making Paranormal 2," he told Shock Til You Drop. "We started making this mythology and it worked as a think tank for us.

"It was really when we were making the third film that things started to crystallise. I had an endgame in mind which I had pitched to the group and they loved it. We've been working toward getting to this finish line."

Landon said that he felt Paranormal Activity 4 went off track in terms of the series' mythos, and that The Marked Ones was his "opportunity to get it back on track".

He worked as a writer on the second, third and fourth films, but is not involved with the upcoming Paranormal Activity 5, »

"Ghost Team One" Is Funnier Than It Looks

6 January 2014 5:31 PM, PST | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Does a racist have a black drug dealer named Tug? No.

It doesn’t happen too often anymore, but sometimes the cover is worse than the movie. The blu-ray cover for Ghost Team One (2013) looks like the lowest, broadest, dumbest comedy ever, as if Scary Movie 5’s (2013) second unit director put $500 of his own money into a parody of Paranormal Activity 4 (2012). Look at the face they’re pulling. What is that? The promo quotes they’ve got, like “Pure comedy gold...brilliant” or “profane, randy, oversexed, and wonderfully juvenile”, seemed highly untruthful. And yet, it was pretty hilarious. It’s pretty raw with a fair amount of poor taste, but it is very funny and looks sharp and professional.

Box Office: Is the 'Paranormal Activity' Spell Broken?

6 January 2014 1:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

For a long time, the "Paranormal Activity" franchise has seemed as unstoppable at the box office as those malevolent spirits that keep dragging those poor folks around in front of conveniently placed camcorders. Indeed, some pundits expected the newest installment, this weekend's "Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones," to earn as much as $24 million and open at No. 1 on the box office chart.

Instead, the film opened at the low end of the range of predictions, with an estimated $18.2 million and settling for second place, behind Disney's seven-week-old "Frozen," which earned an estimated $20.7 million at the box office and achieved the rare feat of returning to the top spot a month after having vacated it.

This isn't the first sign of trouble for the horror franchise. While the initial "Paranormal Activity" slowly built momentum as it expanded across the country, all the sequels since have enjoyed instant nationwide releases. "Paranormal Activity 2" opened north of $40 million, »

Paranormal Activity Can't Quite Mark #1 at the Box Office on this Frozen Weekend

5 January 2014 4:25 PM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

It’s been a good news/bad news weekend for Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones. The first (horror) movie of 2014 had a solid opening weekend but still proved no match for the frozen weather in and out of movie theaters.

Disney’s Frozen climbed back to the top of the box office after a weekend that saw a good chunk of the country literally frozen, forcing Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones to mark its territory in second place. $18.5 million is the weekend total for the Latino-centric found footage spin-off. That number has to be seen as both a positive (in relation to the movie’s $5 million budget) and a bit of a disappointment (in comparison to Paranormal Activity 4’s $29 million opening). That’s also less than last year’s New Year’s horror opening Texas Chainsaw 3D ($21 million) and 2012’s The Devil Inside ($32 million).

Despite a slew of positive reviews, »
