Terror on TV: Fred and Barney and Murder and Greed in “A Haunted House is Not a Home”

7 July 2016 10:43 AM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

Terror on TV revisits the most sadistic The Flintstones episode ever. When Hanna-Barbera launched The Flintstones in 1960, it was an animated answer to pioneering television sitcom The Honeymooners, with Alan Reed’s Fred Flintstone and Mel Blanc’s Barney Rubble serving as prehistoric riffs on Jackie Gleason’s Ralph Kramden and Art Carney’s Ed Norton. And because…

Meet the Blacks review – an angry and unapologetically gutter-mouthed comedy

1 April 2016 5:45 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

While there is a whiff of social commentary in this low-budget spoof of the 2013 horror The Purge, only a comic performance from Bresha Webb provides any impact

“Daddy, they Purgin’!” So shouts Bresha Webb, whose comic performance in the ultra low-budget Meet the Blacks is so unpredictable and versatile it virtually makes up for the film’s many dull patches. Webb, who is 28 but plays the teen daughter of Carl Black, has a range that zips from Judy Holliday-like ditz to an antic, Kevin Hart-style faux toughie over the course of just one scene. That’s probably not a good indicator of the film’s overall consistency, but considering how ridiculous this movie is, ditching credibility for the higher cause of a laugh at any price is probably the right decision. Meet the Blacks is an asinine film (though with a kernel of seriousness) but whenever it feels »

Fifty Shades Of Black review

14 March 2016 7:12 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

facebook

twitter

google+

It only took a year: here's the spoof take on 50 Shades Of Grey. Chortle.

When Scary Movie came out back in 2000, some remarked that the sleeper hit horror parody was spoofing a satire by drawing inspiration and iconography from Scream, which Wes Craven intended as a trope-riddled satire of the genre. Nevertheless, four sequels and a slew of other parody movies (mostly by 'two of the six writers', Aaron Seltzer and Jason Friedberg) followed and have served to run the art of cinematic parody into the ground over the last 15 years.

Fifty Shades Of Black hasn't been anywhere near as big a hit for co-writer and star Marlon Wayans as Scary Movie was, although it's arguably in a similar situation as that first breakout hit. Many of us (this reviewer included) felt that last year's E.L. James adaptation Fifty Shades Of Grey was already hilarious by accident, »

Having been a star of Scary Movie and A Haunted House – comic performer Marlon Wayans is back with his latest parody, this time riffing on Sam Taylor-Johnson’s Fifty Shades of Grey, with his overstated, outrageous offering, Fifty Shades of Black. We asked him about his interest in this parody sub-genre, and he tells us

Fifty Shades Of Black review: “An offensive, disgusting mess of a movie”

11 March 2016 2:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Fifty Shades Of Black review: There’s not a lot to like about this new comedy spoof from Marlon Wayans and co.

Fifty Shades Of Black review by Paul Heath. I honestly don’t know where to begin with Fifty Shades Of Black, the latest ‘comedy’ that spoofs last year’s Fifty Shades Of Grey movie, and many others. Actually, I will start here; there’s a scene near the end of the film where Marlon Wayans picks up a hardback copy of E.L. James’ source material and then immediately ridicules it for its poor dialogue and corny content. I can’t quite tell if he’s also taking a sly, fourth-wall-breaking dig at his own movie, or not. We’ll give him the benefit of the doubt, but we won’t forgive him for the rest of this ridiculous, offensive, putrid, dire and most importantly, completely unfunny effort that »

Exclusive interview: Marlon Wayans for ‘Fifty Shades Of Black’

10 March 2016 8:27 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

In cinemas from this Friday is the new comedy from Marlon Wayans, Fifty Shades Of Black. Wayans is best known for his previous parodies that include the likes of Scary Movie and its sequel Scary Movie 2, and A Haunted House. The actor, producer and writer has also appeared alongside his brother Shawn in the hugely successful White Chicks, and Little Man.

In Fifty Shades Of Black, Wayans parodies last year’s successful adaptation of the E.L. James novel Fifty Shades Of Grey, as well as other big films of the last twelve months, including Magic Mike. This week, we caught up with Marlon in London where he spoke about filming the movie, his love of English girls, being single, shooting that Mmxxl scene and getting into shape for his new role.

Fifty Shades Of Black hits UK cinemas from Friday 11th March.

15 Horror Comedies You Should See Before You Die

10 March 2016 7:31 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

XLrator Media

It often makes you wonder about the tastes of modern audiences when horror comedies – a combination of the two most downright enjoyable genres in cinema – usually manage to both be a turn-off critics, and fail at the box office. If ever a genre had the potential for send-up, it’s the one that spawned the immortal classics Unfriended, Ouija and Annabelle.

Then again, it’s entirely possible that a modern crowd just doesn’t want to see horror being parodied. A decent horror comedy (or, failing that, Scary Movie 5) will make fun of all the genre conventions and spoof their weaknesses, and the people who’re itching to see another Friday the 13th eboot don’t want that.

Or maybe they watched A Haunted House and Vampires Suck and wrote off the idea that horror can be funny. It can, but you won’t find many laughs in those opportunistic would-be comedies, »

Drive-In Dust Offs: The Evil (1978)

20 February 2016 11:55 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

A haunted house film is a tough sell. No masked stalker, no creatures that eviscerate and certainly no zombies lurching down those shadowed halls. A single setting, a dark secret, a group of people terrified by something is usually your standard template, and even the best haunted house flick doth not stray from the formula. So the trick is to convince the viewers once you get them inside – something that the low on budget, high on conviction, and seldom talked about The Evil (1978) accomplishes admirably.

Barely distributed in May of ‘78 by Roger Corman’s New World Pictures, The Evil was made for $700,000 Us and came and went very quickly. The filmmakers complained about the paltry distribution, but I’m sure Corman turned a profit somewhere down the line – he usually did. So from the modest budget, to the generic sounding title (why not just call it Horror Movie?) to the not exactly topical sub genre, »

Box Office: Why 'Finest Hours' and 'Jane Got a Gun' Fell Way Short This Weekend

31 January 2016 12:47 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The math doesn't add up.

This has been a surprisingly strong January at the box office, with Hollywood raking in more than $1 billion during a month that's traditionally a big post-holiday let-down at the multiplex. This weekend's take was 20 percent above last weekend's. So why do this weekend's four new releases seem like such box office disappointments?

Well, okay, two of them -- "Fifty Shades of Black" and "Jane Got a Gun," really are disappointments. The other two -- "Kung Fu Panda 3" and "The Finest Hours," may just be the victims of overinflated expectations. We have to keep remembering: this is still January, box office no-man's-land. Expecting too much of certain movies because other similar movies did okay at this time of year is foolish.

Really, the makers of "Panda 3" should be pretty happy with the movie's estimated $41.0 million take, even though that opening is on the lower-end of expectations. »

'Kung Fu Panda 3' Takes the Weekend Box Office with $41M

31 January 2016 11:11 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While January isn't typically a big month for box office blockbusters, there can be the occasional movie that opens big. Two weeks ago, Ride Along 2 breathed some life into the new year with a respectable $35.2 million opening frame, but last weekend, it dropped a whopping 64.7% and slipped from first to third place, with the holdover The Revenant taking the top spot in its fifth week in theaters. This weekend is shaping up to be the biggest frame of the new year so far, with three heavily-promoted new releases, Kung Fu Panda 3, Fifty Shades of Black and The Finest Hours. Box Office Mojo is reporting that Kung Fu Panda 3 took the top spot at the box office with $41 million.

Kung Fu Panda 3 is expected to easily take the top spot with a projected $48 million, which isn't terribly surprising given this franchise's pedigree of critical acclaim and box office success. »

'Kung Fu Panda 3' #1; Holdovers Make Up for Money Lost in the Snow

31 January 2016 8:55 AM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Kung Fu Panda 3 reigns atop the weekend box office, bringing in more than enough to become the largest January animated opening of all-time. Meanwhile, fellow newcomers The Finest Hours, Fifty Shades of Black and Jane Got a Gun didn't fair so well as holdovers from last weekend make up for dollars lost due to last weekend's snowstorm. Not a single film in the top ten dropped more than 34% and the overall top twelve was up nearly 25% compared to last weekend, which is also a 46% improvement over the same weekend last year. With an estimated $41 million, Kung Fu Panda 3 crushed the previous January, animated opening weekend record of $19.4 million held by The Nut Job (2014). It's also bordering on a enough to become the second largest January opening of all-time, just shy of Ride Along's $41.5 million from 2014. Compared to the first two Panda films, the opening does signify yet another »

Fifty Shades Of Black Review

30 January 2016 8:22 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It astounds me that so many critics can vehemently spit venom at Kevin Smith, proclaiming he only makes movies for himself, yet that same scrutiny seems to avoid a borderline selfish filmmaker like Marlon Wayans. Given the right script and role, Wayans is a funny, talented performer. That I won’t argue. Yet these flavor-of-the-week spoofs he constantly churns out sport the same, unfunny, low-brow sense of humor every single time. These are jokes that make Wayans and his writing buddy Rick Alvarez laugh like pre-pubescent boys – or maybe the jokes were written by pre-pubescent boys, and they just make Wayans and Alvarez laugh. Either way, Fifty Shades Of Black is fifty despicable shades too many. Shocker, right?

Wayans stars as Christian Black, a wealthy “bidness” man who made his money like any other successful entrepreneur – by learning the coke trade and sucking a few dicks! (Yup, strap in.) It »

All the Times the Wayans Got It Right in Their Parody Movies

29 January 2016 9:40 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Marlon Wayans has another spoof movie, and this time he's skewering Fifty Shades of Grey with his parody Fifty Shades of Black.  Though it's a Marlon movie, Wayans has often worked with some of his famous brothers, Shawn Wayans and Keenen Ivory Wayans, to poke fun at whatever films are popular at the moment. The Scary Movie franchise, the A Haunted House franchise, Dance Flick, I'm Gonna Git You Sucka!, and Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood are among the comedies the Wayans family has given us that don't let big budget blockbusters off the hook without a little roasting. If a certain genre of movie is doing well, you can bet the Wayans have made »

Film Review: ‘Fifty Shades of Black’

28 January 2016 11:16 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

At a minimum, a parody should be funnier than the film it’s sending up, but “Fifty Shades of Black,” a quick-and-dirty riff on last year’s S&M romance “Fifty Shades of Grey,” falls a laugh or two short of even that low standard. After wringing every last joke out of the “Paranormal Activity” movies with “A Haunted House” and its sequel, co-writer/star Marlon Wayans, co-writer Rick Alvarez and director Michael Tiddes handcuff themselves to the latest pop-culture phenomenon, but don’t have the requisite discipline for the material. It wouldn’t take much to tip the brittle kink of E.L. James’ fantasy into the realm of comedy — the movie itself did it occasionally, if not always intentionally — but the vulgar bigness of Wayans’ style blows right past deadpan. Nevertheless, though this dire outing won’t win Wayans any new fans, there’s still an audience eager to »

‘Spotlight’ Producer Open Road Teams With Crystal City for Financing

28 January 2016 3:44 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Fresh off the success of “Spotlight,” Open Road Films is teaming with Crystal City Entertainment/Boundary Stone Films in a multi-picture development financing pact for all of Open Road Films’ own productions over the coming years.

The deal will cover two to four films annually with the titles getting a wide domestic release via Open Road Films and foreign sales being handled by Open Road International and partner Film Nation.

Open Road was launched in 2011 by Regal Entertainment Group and AMC Theaters, two of the largest U.S. exhibitors. Besides “Spotlight,” which has topped $33 million domestically and received six Oscar nominations, Open Road has seen strong performances from mid-budget titles such as “The Grey,” “Killer Elite,” “A Haunted House,” “The Host,” “Side Effects,” “The Nut Job” and “Chef.”

Weekend Preview: 'Kung Fu Panda 3' To Top 'Fifty Shades of Black' and 'Finest Hours'

28 January 2016 11:39 AM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Kung Fu Panda 3 enters a marketplace where the largest January opening for an animated feature is currently 2014's The Nut Job with $19.4 million. You can count on Po the Panda squashing that number with ease. Additional new releases looking to find a place on the chart this weekend include the 1950s-set disaster thriller The Finest Hours, the R-rated spoof feature Fifty Shades of Black and Jane Got a Gun. Question is, while Po and the Furious Five are taking the top spot will these other new releases be able to top last weekend's top two films? Last weekend's box office took a hit thanks to the East Coast snowstorm and films such as The Revenant and Star Wars may be looking to make up some ground. Starting with number one, and working in the favor of Kung Fu Panda 3 is the fact the last really strong animated release was »

In Fifty Shades Of Black, Marlon Wayans doesn't only parody the risqué novel turned movie, but Magic Mike also gets the spoof treatment with Marlon Wayans stripping down to a g-string. Wayans co-star Kali Hawk and director Michael Tiddes (A Haunted House) reveal the star wasn't thrilled to take it all off, but Wayans is telling us a different story. Watch the hilarious interview where Wayans offers to show us his "johnson" to prove he's not a "prude."
