Henry Thomas (E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial), Elizabeth Reaser (Twilight) and Kate Siegel (Hush) have become the latest additions to the cast of Netflix’s modern reimagining of the horror classic The Haunting of Hill House.

However, the horror flick from “Oculus” director Mike Flanagan, starring Kate Bosworth, Thomas Jane, and Jacob Tremblay never wound up hitting multiplexes in the U.S.

Karen Gillan to Receive Rising Star Award at the Maui Film Festival

6 June 2017 1:01 PM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Karen Gillan in “Selfie

Former “Doctor Who” companion Karen Gillan is set to receive the Rising Star Award at the 2017 Maui Film Festival, Variety reports. Since her days on the beloved BBC time-traveling series the actress has gone on to star in horror hit “Oculus,” the “Guardians of the Galaxy” franchise, the short-lived but well-received ABC comedy “Selfie,” and Oscar winner “The Big Short.” Plus, the Scottish star has two blockbusters on the way: “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.” The former is filming and the latter is in post-production.

“Perfection and synchronicity in the Universe work in mysterious ways. Among them is the opportunity to honor Karen Gillan with the Maui Film Festival’s 2017 Rising Star Award — under the stars and lit by the moon at the Celestial Cinema — for the way her work has enriched us all through her eclectic and powerful performances to date and, I’m sure, in many triumphant decades yet to come,” said Barry Rivers, founder and director of the Maui Film Festival.

The fest will run from June 21–25 in Maui, Hawaii. Previous recipients of the award include Brie Larson (“Room”) and Kelly Rohrbach (“Baywatch”).

Gillan just wrapped production on her feature directorial debut, “The Party’s Just Beginning.” Formerly known as “Tupperware Party,” the film is set in Scotland and centers on a girl dealing with the suicide of her best friend. Gillan penned the script. “I have been concentrating on acting for, I guess, the last decade. But when I first started off when I was a young child expressing an interest in all this I had a video camera and was directing little short films,” she told the BBC.

Karen Gillan to Receive Rising Star Award at the Maui Film Festival was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

A Haunted Mirror Finds New Life In The Trailer For The Bollywood Remake Of 'Oculus'

9 May 2017 8:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Remakes tend to be a one-way street, with Hollywood importing properties from all over the world and remaking them for American audiences. It's rare to have an American movie exporting its rights for a remake in a foreign market. Sure, there are notorious knockoffs, but you don't often see an official one. It's even rarer for said remake to be a horror movie. That's what makes Dobaara particularly interesting. Bearing the subtitle See Your Evil, Dobaara is a remake of the terrific (and underseen) 2013 horror movie Oculus that really helped put director Mike Flanagan on the map. If you haven't seen it, it's a very cool horror puzzler about a brother and sister who are convinced that a mirror in their house is haunted. Now if you haven't seen Oculus...

Why Mike Flanagan’s the perfect director to adapt The Haunting Of Hill House

19 April 2017 1:10 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Sarah Dobbs May 18, 2017

Turning a much loved literary classic into a TV series isn’t easy, but Netflix is onto a winner with Mike Flanagan

Shirley Jackson’s The Haunting Of Hill House might be the best ghost story ever written. Published in 1959, it’s about a makeshift team of paranormal investigators moving into the legendarily haunted Hill House in an attempt to document and analyse the supernatural phenomena manifesting within its walls – but it’s really about grief, and guilt, and repression, and the desperate longing for a home. It’s beautifully constructed, impeccably written, and genuinely terrifying.

And now it’s being turned into a 10-part Netflix series.

It’s a story that, at least on the surface, appears to lend itself quite easily to screen adaptations, and in fact it’s already been turned into two films: The Haunting (1963) and, »
