The first trailer for Amy Adams’ ‘Sharp Objects’ will chill you to the bone [Watch]

Last we checked it’s still April, but the creepy first teaser trailer for HBO’s limited series “Sharp Objects,” starring Amy Adams, will make you think it’s Halloween. How can you not when the voiceover is: “Ma says she saw a ghost once. I’m not scared of them ghosts. Are you?”

Based on Gillian Flynn’s novel of the same name, the eight-episode series stars Adams — in her first TV role since she recurred on “The Office” 11 years ago — as Camille Preaker, a journalist, recently released from a psychiatric hospital, who returns home to Wind Gap, Missouri, to investigate the murders of two young girls. The haunting trailer doesn’t give too much away, but the investigation leads to troubling secrets of Camille’s past being revealed, as she deals with her difficult mother (Patricia Clarkson) and half-sister Amma (Eliza Scanlen), who provides the aforementioned voiceover.

Teaser Watch: Amy Adams Heads Home to Investigate a Crime in HBO’s “Sharp Objects”

“Sharp Objects”

Amy Adams returns to the small screen after a decade-plus hiatus in “Sharp Objects.” The five-time Oscar nominee stars in HBO’s adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s 2006 best-selling novel, her first time on TV since her recurring gig on “The Office.” This time around, the “Arrival” star will be tackling much darker fare.

An atmospheric teaser has been released for the miniseries about an emotionally unstable reporter who returns to her small hometown to cover the murder of two pre-teen girls. She “finds herself identifying with the young victims — a bit too strongly. Dogged by her own demons, she must unravel the psychological puzzle of her own past if she wants to get the story — and survive this homecoming,” “Sharp Objects’” official synopsis hints.

“We need to talk about your daughters,” a character says through voiceover in the spot. “One of them is dangerous and the other one’s in danger.

‘Sharp Objects’ Trailer: An Unstable Amy Adams Returns to Her Creepy Southern Roots (Video)

HBO is going deeper into the dark with its upcoming TV adaptation of “Gone Girl” author Gillian Flynn’s “Sharp Objects.” Dark, with a hint of Southern twang.

The premium cable network has unveiled the first teaser trailer for the limited series — due for a July premiere — which centers around Amy Adams, who plays a mentally unstable reporter going back to her small hometown to investigate a series of murders.

“We need to talk about your daughters. One of them is dangerous, the other one’s in danger,” a man says in a voiceover to actress Patricia Clarkson, who plays Adams’ mother in the drama. We’re not sure which daughter Adams is, but either way, it doesn’t sound like a great situation to be in.

Clearly Amy Adams has never heard the quote "you can't go home again" before, because that's exactly what her character attempts to do in the mysterious first trailer for Sharp Objects. Adams stars in HBO's adaptation of the Gillian Flynn novel, which follows Camille Preaker, an emotionally unstable journalist who is sent to cover a string of murders in her hometown. Naturally, the journey unearths more than Camille bargained for, both physically and psychologically, especially when her estranged mother gets involved. Although we can't know for sure how closely the eight-episode miniseries will follow the book, the brief teaser looks promising. Patricia Clarkson, Chris Messina, and It's Sophia Lillis costar, and it will premiere sometime in July 2018.

‘A Quiet Place’: John Krasinski Wasn’t a Horror Fan, But He’s Resetting His Directing Career With An Ambitious Scary Movie

‘A Quiet Place’: John Krasinski Wasn’t a Horror Fan, But He’s Resetting His Directing Career With An Ambitious Scary Movie
John Krasinski gets it. With his third directorial outing, the high-concept horror film “A Quiet Place,” the actor and filmmaker has gotten about as far away from his previous films – including an ambitious but flawed David Foster Wallace adaptation and a feel-good family dramedy seemingly made to debut at Sundance – as creatively possible.

That wasn’t entirely by design, though, because Krasinski did not enter the genre space as a way of acting out some childhood dream. Krasinski didn’t even like horror movies as a kid, shoring it up to the eight-year-old who still lives inside of him, terrified of seeing anything scary on the big screen.

“I am among the large group of people who would look at my name and by like, ‘What? That guy is going to do a horror movie?’,” Krasinski said in a recent interview with IndieWire. “But what I realized was that I

Movie Review – Blame (2017)

Blame, 2017.

Directed by Quinn Shephard.

Starring Quinn Shephard, Chris Messina, Nadia Alexander, Sarah Mezzanotte, Tessa Albertson, Luke Slattery, Owen Campbell, Geneva Carr, and Tate Donovan.

Synopsis:

A drama teacher’s taboo relationship with an unstable student strikes a nerve in her jealous classmate, sparking a vengeful chain of events within their suburban high school that draws parallels to ‘The Crucible‘.

Blame certainly has its fair share of problems and while it may soon look as if this review is overly harsh, that doesn’t take away how speechless rendering and impressive it is that the high school drama (proudly drawing parallels to widely regarded masterpiece and standard curriculum book The Crucible) was directed, written, starred, edited, and produced by 22-year-old Quinn Shephard, who started scribing the movie with her mother Laurie Shephard when she was only 15. The road to Blame‘s existence (especially in a male-dominated industry apparently full of misconduct,

How ‘Blame’ Filmmaker Quinn Shephard Used Her Daring Debut to Understand the Nature of Consent

How ‘Blame’ Filmmaker Quinn Shephard Used Her Daring Debut to Understand the Nature of Consent
Editor’s note: “Blame” filmmaker Quinn Shephard made her first film at the age of 20, and she wrote about the experiences of her own youth that helped shape what would become her debut.

When I was twelve, standing alone in a home depot, I felt it for the first time. A man staring at me, his wife a few paces behind. I always looked older than my age — 5’3” already, curves filling out, with only my gap-toothed smile as a sneaky reminder that I was not, in fact, a high-schooler. I was watching him, registering the way he looked at me. It was the same way I would feel at fifteen, being kept after class each day by a teacher who used to stare at my legs when I wore short skirts. Not afraid, not yet. Seduced, not by a man, but by a power I did not realize I possessed.
