Review: Alvarez's 'Don't Breathe' is Effective & Engrossing Exploitation

26 August 2016 7:41 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Don't Breathe, the second feature film from Uruguayan writer-director Fede Alvarez (of 2013's Evil Dead reboot) produced by legendary filmmaker Sam Raimi, is the depraved offspring of Sofia Coppola's The Bling Ring and Wes Craven's The People Under the Stairs. It's about a group of teens who try to rob a blind man's house, only to discover he's not as passive as they expected. Jane Levy, who already earned her Final Girl Merit Badge as Mia in Alvarez's Evil Dead, stars as Rocky, a young woman determined to escape her abusive mother and save her younger sister (Emma Bercovici) from a dead-end existence in Detroit. Rocky and her friends Alex (Dylan Minnette) and Money (Daniel Zovatto) have pulled off a series of sophisticated burglaries in order to come up with enough cash to make it to California, but they've yet to score big. When the trio learns that »

Scream season 2 episode 6 review: Jeepers Creepers

11 July 2016 12:32 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Holly Hogan Jul 11, 2016

Concealment between friends proves frustrating in the latest episode of MTV's Scream season 2...

This review contains spoilers.

2.6 Jeepers Creepers

A plot device that is a personal pet peeve of mine is when characters keep things from each other. It often seems to unnecessarily complicate matters in trying to create tension, and I’d rather just see natural conflicts and twists and turns. This week’s Scream, thus, had several moments that caused me some consternation, but it also had several genuinely effective character moments that balanced it all out.

You’d think the survivors of Lakewood’s run of murder and mayhem would have learned to stick together by now, but the kids can’t seem to get it together. Audrey’s situation is more understandable, but Emma almost seems like she’s trying to be as [un]blissfully ignorant as she can...which makes one wonder what »

Split Screen Scream Queens!

It’s normally the climactic scene in a movie where the last girl standing gets up close and personal with her on screen tormentor for a face off.  Now artist Matthew Therrien has set about a new series of “Final Girl” illustrations splitting the features of each heroine with her foe.  Marvel at the end results […] »

Laff 2016 Interview: Jackson Stewart and Barbara Crampton Take Us Beyond The Gates

6 June 2016 4:58 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Last week at the 2016 Los Angeles Film Festival, the supernatural throwback horror film Beyond the Gates premiered to a packed audience in Culver City, and hot on the heels of the successful debut, Daily Dead caught up with co-writer/director Jackson Stewart and co-star/producer Barbara Crampton to talk about their collaboration.

Also written by Stephen Scarlata (Jodorowsky’s Dune, Final Girl), Beyond the Gates stars Graham Skipper, Chase Williamson, Brea Grant, Justin Welborn, and Matt Mercer, and follows two estranged brothers (Skipper, Williamson) who return home to deal with their father’s video store business after he’s gone missing, only to uncover a mysterious Vcr game that may be directly linked to his disappearance.

Congrats on the film, guys, I had a lot of fun with it. Jackson, can you talk about where this idea came from and the process of working on the script with Stephen?

Chainsaws Like You’ve Never Heard them!

27 April 2016 3:07 PM, PDT | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

Chainsaws have never sounded so terrifying! Turbine Media Group is releasing Tobe Hooper’s classic, groundbreaking horror flick, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, in 13.1 Auro-3D audio, which adds a height-layer to the sound mix. It’ll be combined with 4K Uhd Blu-ray to give a whole new dimension to terror. (Just think what that endlessly droning generator will sound like!)

Remixed specifically for home theaters, the Auro-3D mix “creates an exciting three-dimensional soundscape thanks to the addition of a Height layer in front, above and all around the listener,” creating three-dimensional sound.

The controversial 1974 masterpiece is an iconic part of film history, having originated many of the tropes used in slashers from Halloween to Scream. It’s so influential that when we celebrated Women in Horror Month this past February with a poll asking our readers to choose the best Final Girl in horror history, you all chose Marilyn Burns, »

Tribeca Film Review: ‘Always Shine’

15 April 2016 5:42 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hitchcockian doubles from Hollywood’s lowest rungs retreat to Big Sur for a weekend of hiking, drinking and mutual torment in “Always Shine,” a psychological thriller that feels like “Persona” by way of “Single White Female.” With her confident second feature, director Sophia Takal (“Green”) takes on Tinseltown misogyny and the toxic rivalry between friends, but that’s mere prelude to a gonzo meta-fiction that deconstructs itself nearly to death.

Amid all the turmoil, Mackenzie Davis, the ascendant star of AMC’s “Halt and Catch Fire,” pulls focus with a mesmerizing turn as a never-will-be actress and Caitlin FitzGerald is equally good as her passive-aggressive friend/doppelganger. “Always Shine” reps a gleaming showcase for their performances, but its overabundance of ideas presents a murkier commercial prospect.

Working from a script by Lawrence Michael Levine, Takal makes it immediately clear that while Davis and FitzGerald play struggling actresses, their own bonafides are beyond dispute. »

Silver Scream Fest: Interview With Heather Langenkamp

5 March 2016 5:49 PM, PST | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

A Nightmare On Elm Street heroine Heather Langenkamp took to the stage today to give us insight into the Elm Street legacy, her documentary I Am Nancy, and what contemporary character she thinks is a modern-day Nancy Thompson.

Moderated by FM executive editor David Weiner, Langenkamp told the crowded theater of film lovers what sparked her desire to produce the documentary, I Am Nancy, which puts the spotlight on her Elm Street character. She called director Wes Craven and his assistant didn’t know who she was. It didn’t strike her as noteworthy until later, and it was her sister-in-law who was particularly irked, asking why Nancy wasn’t the focus of the adulation instead of Freddy Krueger. Langenkamp didn’t know. She told her, “It’s just the way it is. It’s Freddy mania. Not Nancy mania.”

Landing the gig, she recalls that “I probably didn’t »

We compiled the votes from our Facebook page and our Twitter account and while it was a bloody contest, one woman did triumph as the Ultimate Final Girl, towering above the others (or perhaps cowering, after her terrors).

Beating out such favorites as A Nightmare On Elm Street’s Heather Langenkamp, Scream’s Neve Campbell, and Friday The 13th’s Adrienne King, your Top 3, in ascending order, are:

#3: Sigourney Weaver as warrant officer Ellen Ripley, who survived countless Alien attacks.


#2: Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode in the Halloween series, Elizabeth Solley in The Fog, Kim in Prom Night, Alana in Terror Train, etc.

And your favorite Final Girl is… »

Movie Review – Last Girl Standing (2016)

29 February 2016 3:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last Girl Standing, 2015

Written and directed by Benjamin R. Moody.

Starring Akasha Villalobos, Danielle Evon Ploeger, Brian Villalobos, Jd Carrera, Ryan Hamilton, Kelsey Pribilski, Laura Ray, Chris J. Knight.


She survived a brutal massacre, but lost her life. What happens to the final girl after the credits roll?

Ever since Laurie Strode first stabbed Michael Myers with a knitting needle in Halloween, the ‘Final Girl’ has become an integral component of the slasher genre. From Sidney Prescott to Ellen Ripley, final girls have consistently fought off murderous boogeymen, surviving against all odds thanks to their wits and ingenuity. What the movies fail to explore though is the far-reaching consequences of this trauma. Sure, surviving the massacre of everyone you know is sort of a happy ending, but how does an experience like this affect these women further down the line?

Opening where most horror films end, Last Girl Standing »

It’s been a busy week in Hollywood! Check out some highlights below and then head off to see Deadpool again. We know you were at the Thursday previews … We all were, which is why Ryan Reynolds’ revamped superhero broke box-office records. The $12.7 million dollars it raked in Thursday night was more than any other R-rated movie had in the whole history of ever. Both fans and critics are in love with it. Even Last Golden Girl Standing Betty White raved about it! (Warning: Nsfw language, so listen with your earbuds!)

15 Worst Horror Villains Of All Time

9 February 2016 1:39 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »


Iconic screen bogeymen – Myers, Krueger et al – force us to watch through fingers clamped over our eyes, while we breathlessly await their next act of onscreen savagery. If exposed to their antics at an impressionable age, you’ll be afraid of the dark for the rest of your life.

At the other end of the scale, however, there are horror movie villains that force us to ask such important questions as “Why am I watching this?” and “How the hell did this get made and did they think they’d get away with it?”

Horror is one of the hardest genres to get right and one of the easiest to screw up, and nothing spells disaster like an antagonist who either puts the audience to sleep or has them laughing in the aisles. When we should be getting worked up, with our palms moistening and our knuckles tightening, we »

Notebook's 8th Writers Poll: Fantasy Double Features of 2015

4 January 2016 6:41 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

How would you program this year's newest, most interesting films into double features with movies of the past you saw in 2015?Looking back over the year at what films moved and impressed us, it is clear that watching old films is a crucial part of making new films meaningful. Thus, the annual tradition of our end of year poll, which calls upon our writers to pick both a new and an old film: they were challenged to choose a new film they saw in 2015—in theatres or at a festival—and creatively pair it with an old film they also saw in 2015 to create a unique double feature.All the contributors were given the option to write some text explaining their 2015 fantasy double feature. What's more, each writer was given the option to list more pairings, with or without explanation, as further imaginative film programming we'd be lucky to catch »
