Opening Wednesday At A Theater Or Drive-in Near You: The Shadow Cinema Of The American ‘70S

“All the films in this book share an air of disreputability… I have tried to avoid using the word art about the movies in this book, not just because I didn’t want to inflate my claims for them, but because the word is used far too often to shut down discussion rather than open it up. If something has been acclaimed as art, it’s not just beyond criticism but often seen as above the mere mortals for whom its presumably been made. It’s a sealed artifact that offers no way in. It is as much a lie to claim we can be moved only by what has been given the imprimatur of art as it would be to deny that there are, in these scruffy movies, the very things we expect from art: avenues into human emotion and psychology, or into the character and texture of the time the films were made,

The Best Summer Television Shows of the 21st Century, Ranked

The Best Summer Television Shows of the 21st Century, Ranked
In the not-so-good old days, summer used to be a break for more than just students. It was time off from great TV, as broadcast networks aired reruns, sports, and reality competitions while they assumed people were outside having fun. But since the new golden age began, all these TV shows have had to fit in somewhere, and many networks chose to run them during the less competitive summer months.

That’s led to a boon of TV’s best shows popping up when no series dared debut before. So, to honor the latest summer sensation — Netflix’s “Glow” — we’ve gathered the elite qualifiers below and ranked the seasons by overall quality, summer spirit, and re-watchability. To be eligible, seasons needed to be released in the months between June 1 and August 31 during the 21st century. After all, there’s plenty of new options to consider, but sometimes you want

What Canceled TV Shows Most Deserve a Better Ending? — IndieWire Critics Survey

What Canceled TV Shows Most Deserve a Better Ending? — IndieWire Critics Survey
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: If you could give one canceled show one extra season (if only to wrap things up in a better way), which would it be?

Daniel Fienberg (@TheFienPrint), The Hollywood Reporter

It wasn’t that we were watching “Hannibal” just to see Bryan Fuller and company get to the events of “Silence of the Lambs,” but that was sure a fun thing looming on the horizon. The “Manhunter”/”Red Dragon” arc was probably the show’s most conventional, but it was all the more intriguing for that odd disconnect, of a frequently told story going through the mind of one of TV’s most original storytellers and

‘Good Girls Revolt’ Dropped by Amazon; Studio Will Shop the Show Elsewhere
Amazon won’t bring back “Good Girls Revolt” for a second season.

The series, which premiered in October, garnered strong reviews and appeared to attract a decent audience vs. other Amazon series, according to data from Symphony. But according to insiders, Amazon Studios head Roy Price was not a fan of “Good Girls Revolt” (and didn’t see it as an awards contender) and decided that the show’s first season would be its last.

Modus review – pacy and gripping, like a high-end Volvo

It’s another hit for BBC4’s Borgen slot – although perhaps a bit shallower than the classic Nordic noirs we know and love

Good news. A bit of Scandinavian noir for a Saturday night. In the Borgen slot, also known as the Guardian readers’ slot – BBC4, subtitles, not The X Factor etc. This one’s called Modus (BBC4, Saturday). It’s Swedish this time, but it’s based on a book by Anne Holt, the Norwegian crime writer, lawyer and former justice minister (there aren’t enough of them over there; they have to double up).

So, what have we got? Dark skies, obviously. And frozen landscapes. And cold trees, from above – a bit like the ones at the start of The Missing, although those trees are seen from below. Here’s a man living in a caravan in the woods – up to no good, I’m thinking. Never trust

Jerry Talks Holidays’ Christmas Segment With Director Scott Stewart

When it came to Dark Skies/Legion director Scott Stewart’s segment for the horror anthology, Holidays, the director gave genre fans something very different than expected. A story of a man who goes to some interesting lengths to get a popular Virtual Reality gift for his wife’s Christmas gift, the segment shows how little mistakes can end up haunting you in the long run.

We spoke to a few of the directors behind Holidays (Our Nicholas McCarthy interview was featured yesterday and my chat with The Midnight Swim director Sarah Adina Smith can be read over at Shock Till You Drop), and Stewart was one of them. We had a brief, but pretty informative chat with the director and this is what he had to say:

Virtual reality seems to be a big craze these days, with everything from attractions at technology conventions to Google Cardboard, what inspired your story?

Some of the biggest days on the calendar are viewed through a dark lens in the new horror anthology Holidays.

Movie Review – The Diabolical (2015)

The Diabolical, 2015.

Directed by Alistair Legrand.

Starring Ali Larter, Arjun Gupta, Max Rose, Chloe Perrin, Kurt Carley, Merrin Dungey, Patrick Fischler and Wilmer Calderon.

Synopsis:

Madison, a single mother of two, is awoken nightly by an increasingly strange and intense presence. She seeks help from her scientist boyfriend Nikolai, who begins a hunt to destroy the violent spirit that paranormal experts are too frightened to take on themselves.

Insidious… Sinister… now we can add The Diabolical to the list of horror movie titles found by flicking through a thesaurus. In this case though, the vague title actually works in favour of audiences approaching The Diabolical for the first time. The less you know, the better.

The Diabolical instantly strives to set itself apart from haunted house movies of its ilk by diving straight into the horror. From the first scene, it quickly becomes clear that the paranormal events affecting Madison

Nero Blots Out The Sun With Dark Skies

It looks like we’ve got more new Nero on our hands!

The UK trio has released “Dark Skies,” another track from their upcoming album Between II Worlds. Due out August 28th, the album will be their first full-length effort in roughly four years and they’ve already been letting tracks from it trickle out.

Dark Skies” deviates slightly from what we’ve already heard from the group. The powerful, trance-y synths similar to other Between II Worlds tracks have remained, but a short vocal sample contributed by Alana Watson replaces the longer verses in the others. A brief, melodic breakdown with samples of police sirens breaks up the somewhat repetitive flow of the rest of the track before a final buildup takes the listener home.

The song definitely matches the sound of the other tracks we’ve heard from Between II Worlds so far, but what’s come before has been stronger.
