Beautiful Creatures (2013)
Awful screen adaption
The screenplay is completely wrong! I was so angry I wanted to ask for my ticket money back! I read all four novels and am not sure how they could attempt to make the next three into movies. Amma is supposed to be an OLD southern black lady who is involved with voodoo and is continually places "dolls" and salt to "protect" Wate's Landing. She IS NOT the Keeper! Professor Marian IS and she is also Lila Evers Wate's best friend and colleague at the Gatlin Library! Uncle Abner likes Wild Turket Whiskey and Lemon pie. Amma is a county fair winning cook who lives at Wate's Landing and is taking care of both Ethan and his father as she has done her entire life.
The Book of Moons was in the Duchannes Crypt not in the Caster Library which is only open on holidays when the Gatlin Library is closed! What happened to the Sisters??? They play an ever increasing role in the books. Without them Ethan and Lena will not get the maps of the Caster Tunnels.
Serafine does not die until book three. They killed her off in this movie. She is an important evil, destructive force in the novels.
Uncle Macon, a Dark Caster??!!! No!! He is a Blood Incubus who chose to "feed" on dreams! He does not have Caster abilities at ALL! Where is Link? The basketball team? Savannah Snow is a blond blue-eyed southern belle! The English teacher has a good eye side and a bad eye side not the history teacher. Ethan, Link, and Lena do not attend the Battle of Honey Hill.
Ethan is stabbed by Serafine on the 26th moon and Lena uses the Book of Moons Ethan finds in Genieve's grave to bring him back to life causing Macon to die. This fact is not in the movie creating more problems for the next three novels in the series! The only good thing I can say about the movie is RIDLEY ROCKS. Her character is spot on and she steals the movie from the main characters. The casting for her role is PERFECT!
The Black Dahlia Haunting (2012)
World premiere viewing
Just saw this movie at the world premiere at the Scare-a-Cuse Horror Sci-Fi convention last night (9/15). The movie is not a glamorized version of the Black Dahlia story which makes it stand out from the normal covering of this horrific unsolved homicide from 1947. The movie is not for the squeamish.
Brandon Slagle's direction and screen play are riveting. He is able to use the psychological thriller in ways that evoke Alfred Hitchcock. There is definitely a film noir feel throughout the movie and his use of the black screen is effective not detracting at all from the plot progression.
