‘The Path’ Review: Season 3 Makes Big, Bold Moves to Tackle Cults With More Relevancy Than Ever

‘The Path’ Review: Season 3 Makes Big, Bold Moves to Tackle Cults With More Relevancy Than Ever
As a family drama, “The Path” is very good. As an appraisal of belief, it’s extraordinary.

Jessica Goldberg’s Hulu drama — the streaming company’s inaugural hourlong series — has already been delivering nuanced relationship narratives for two seasons, primarily focusing on the central love triangle between Eddie Lane (Aaron Paul), Sarah Lane (Michelle Monaghan), and Cal Roberts (Hugh Dancy). In this realm alone, “The Path” has been consistently compelling. Dancy may not be getting the buzz he did for “Hannibal,” but he’s doing work of equal magnitude. Paul is so strong as an exasperated father, husband, and leader, while Monaghan confidently pushes Sarah from moments of the utmost fragility to places of fierce conviction.

How far Goldberg and her writing staff has taken each character is impressive (not to mention the rest of the cast), but the scope of “The Path” keeps widening beyond family, and in the

Gareth Edwards’ ‘Monsters’ Being Developed into TV Series by Channel 4

In the wake of the runaway success of The Walking Dead and the obsessive love for cancelled series like Hannibal, horror on TV has never been a more viable investment for streaming sites and TV networks alike. Shows ranging from Mindhunter and American Gods to Preacher and Ash vs. Evil Dead have stake in this, as do Stranger Things and iZombie. And with the recent news of Bryan Fuller, the unquestionable master of TV horror at this point, taking on Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles, it doesn't seem to be slowing down even a little bit.

Bryan Fuller Developing The Vampire Chronicles TV Series with Anne Rice & Christopher Rice

Bryan Fuller has joined the journey to bring the vampire Prince Lestat to the small screen, bringing his dream as a teenager full circle.

Author Christopher Rice announced on Facebook that Fuller has joined him and his mother, Anne Rice, in developing a TV series based on Anne's Vampire Chronicles book series for Paramount Television and Anonymous Content.

While it has yet to be revealed if Fuller will serve as showrunner or executive producer of the series, he is actively involved in developing the series from a creative standpoint, which should be exciting news to fans of his work on American Gods, Hannibal, and Pushing Daisies.

In addition to announcing the news of Fuller's involvement, Christopher also shared a story about how Fuller called Anne Rice as a teenager to let her know that it was his destiny to adapt Interview with the Vampire for the screen.

Bryan Fuller to Help Bring ‘The Vampire Chronicles’ TV Series to Life

Some good news for Bryan Fuller fans, Anne Rice fans, and the healthy crossover between those fandoms that is undoubtedly about to get a bit bigger: Fuller has come onboard the creative team behind The Vampire Chronicles, a TV series adaptation of Rice's most popular and celebrated works. The project aims to bring the vampire Lestat's globe-trotting journey to the small screen, with a focus on providing "a prestigious, long-form, high quality and high production value" series. Fuller, the creative force behind such fan-favorite series as Pushing Daisies, Hannibal, American Gods and Star Trek: Discovery, …

Gillian Anderson: I Quit The X-Files Because...

Gillian Anderson's decision to quit The X-Files is final.

The star opened up about her decision during a Q&A with reporters at the Television Critics Association winter press tour, explaining that “there are lots of things that I want to do in my life and career."

"It’s been an extraordinary opportunity. I’m extremely grateful. [But] I don’t want to be tied down to doing one thing for months and months… I like to be challenged as an actor."

"That’s why I got into this business. And it’s time for me to hang up Scully’s hat. This is it for me — I’m really serious.”

Anderson has played the role of Dana Scully on and off since 1993, so it makes sense that she wants to distance herself from the character and try out some new projects.

That's not to say she did not do

Scott’s Favorites of 2017

Hey everyone. Having written and rewritten this introduction four times, I’ve resigned myself to a simple fact: I can’t rewrite what has been. I can’t change what is done. But the future isn’t set in stone, and my present is better than it’s been in a very long time. I guess which is to say that I’m forever an optimist; I can’t help it and frankly, I don’t care to change. It’s just the way I’m built. So, it was a busy year, and many of the reasons why you’ll see described below with my list of favorite things from 2017. As you’ll see, horror—and horror people—never let me down.

Favorite TV Shows

Okay this will be very short, so let’s get it out of the way: I didn’t see any horror TV this year at all.

Film Review: ‘All the Money in the World’

Film Review: ‘All the Money in the World’
In “All the Money in the World,” gazillionaire J. Paul Getty is judged harshly for not forking over a $17 million ransom to rescue his kidnapped grandson from Italian thugs — the implication being that if you had a gazillion dollars, you wouldn’t hesitate to pay up. But what if doing so read as an open invitation to future extortionists to target other family members? And what guarantee would the filthy-rich patriarch have had that his stolen namesake, John Paul Getty III, would be returned safely?

Of course, as rhetorical questions go, the one “All the Money in the World” really seems to be asking is, “Wwtd,” or “What Would Trump Do?” Surely some version of that idea must have been going through director Ridley Scott’s head when he decided to tackle the project last spring, serving up on a remarkably tight schedule this most twisted of holiday offerings — the ruthless tale of a real-life Ebenezer Scrooge

The trailer, which can be seen below, ranges from futuristic sets with robots and spaceships to more mundane settings. According to EW, at an early PaleyFest screening of “USS Callister,” creator Charlie Brooker revealed that the episode was conceived as an adult “Toy Story” and it’s about “living under a tyrant.” Its obvious riff on “Star Trek” means that it’s grander in scope and uses a healthy amount of lens flares.

Film Critics Pick the Most Underrated Movies of 2017 — IndieWire Critics Survey

Film Critics Pick the Most Underrated Movies of 2017 — IndieWire Critics Survey
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: What is the most overlooked and/or underrated movie of 2017?

E. Oliver Whitney, Screencrush.com, @cinemabite

Despite the critical praise, “A Fantastic Woman” only a one-week qualifying run last month, and I worry is it’ll easily be forgotten this awards season. Daniela Vega gives one of the most astounding performances I’ve seen this year, one that comes from somewhere fierce and internal, portraying the life and struggle of a trans woman that cinema has rarely shown an interest in exploring. But since you can’t see it until it has a proper release in Febraury, do check one of the year’s other

Blu-ray Review – American Gods: Season One

Ricky Church reviews American Gods season one…

For many years, Neil Gaiman’s novel American Gods was thought to be unfilmable. It was felt the novel was too grandiose for the big screen, with too many characters and too much story to fit into one 2-hour or 2-hour plus film. Almost 20 years later, Michael Green and Bryan Fuller thought to develop it as a television series for Starz starring Ricky Whittle (The 100) as protagonist Shadow Moon and Ian McShane (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) as the mysterious Mr. Wednesday.

The 8-episode first season adapts roughly a third of the novel. Shadow Moon is released early from prison after learning his wife has died in an unfortunate car accident while having an affair with his best friend. Adrift, he meets the mysterious and enigmatic con-man Mr. Wednesday, who offers Shadow a job as his bodyguard. The two begin

New ‘Black Mirror’ Season 4 Trailer Reveals David Slade’s Dystopian “Metalhead”

The run-up to Black Mirror's fourth season continues on. After teasing singular episodes ranging from Jodie Foster's "Arkangel" to "Crocodile" and "Black Museum", Netflix has now released our first look at "Metalhead," the episode helmed by longtime Hannibal director David Slade, also known for horror movies like Hard Candy and 30 Days of Night. [caption id="attachment_678226" align="alignright" width="360"] Image via Netflix/caption] Shot entirely in black-and-white from the look of things, "Metalhead" stars Maxine Peake as what seems like a rare survivor of some sort of dystopian act that leaves her wandering …

‘Black Mirror’ Season 4 Trailer: Beware Of Dogs In David Slade’s ‘Metalhead’

The episode by episode teaser march toward the new season of “Black Mirror” continues, with what might be the most visually audacious offering yet: “Metalhead.”

David Slade (“Hannibal,” “American Gods“) gets behind the camera for this black and white instalment, starring Maxine Peake, Jake Davies, and Clint Dyer that keeps the plot under wraps (the only thing we have to go on is the super brief logline: “Beware of dogs”), but seems to promise some bloody, apocalyptic horror.

‘Black Mirror: Metalhead’ Trailer: Watch a Black and White Nightmare From ‘Hard Candy’ Director David Slade

‘Black Mirror: Metalhead’ Trailer: Watch a Black and White Nightmare From ‘Hard Candy’ Director David Slade
In order to stoke excitement for the upcoming season of “Black Mirror,” individual episode trailers have been released, giving sneak peeks of the standalone stories making up this season. Netflix released one of the most striking ones on Dec. 3 with “Metalhead,” written by series creator Charlie Brooker and directed by David Slade. Best known for helming “Hard Candy,” “30 Days of Night,” and key episodes of shows such as “Hannibal” and “American Gods,” Slade brings a black and white chapter to “Black Mirror.” Starring Maxine Peake (“The Theory Of Everything”), Jake Davies (“The Missing”), and Clint Dyer (“Hope Springs”), details on the episode are slim so far, save the video’s haunting description: “Beware of Dogs.” But judging by the intense footage, it appears to be one of the more horror-heavy installments of the series.
