The Invited Stranger in Orphan (2009)

There exists a subgenre that runs through both horror and thriller stories that taps into a fear of unknown dangers being brought into the safety of one’s own private world. It focuses on strangers; not the ones who lurk in dark alleyways and are easily forgotten once you reach the safety of your brightly lit house or apartment. No, these are the strangers that you bring home with you, the ones you invite into your life. They masquerade as one person—seemingly trustworthy, rational, and friendly—but are, in actuality, someone completely different, often with a horrifying agenda. [Spoiler warning for those who haven’t seen Orphan.]We have seen this in films such as The Stepfather, The Hand That Rocks the Cradle, and The Guest (among others), in which a friendly stranger is invited into a family and begins to tear it apart from the inside out. In Jaume Collet-Serra's Orphan, we see an interesting spin on the “Invited Stranger” subgenre,

Deadly Pleasures: The Amityville Horror (2005)

What I’m about to write is probably going to catch a lot of flack, but here it goes – in terms of creating a horror movie experience, I actually prefer The Amityville Horror (2005) to the 1979 movie. While director Stuart Rosenberg’s original is well-made and features strong performances from its leads, I’ve never really been a fan of it, and thus, have found over the last decade or so a true admiration for what Amityville (2005) was able to bring to the table.

Not only does the remake give us deeper characters to invest in, better scares, and made the act of chopping wood absolutely one of the most horrifying things ever, but it also does what all good cinematic retellings should do – respect its roots but also steps out and does something different. So when it comes to all the Platinum Dunes remakes, I do think The Amityville Horror

'Star Trek Beyond' Director Talks Trailer, Plot, Title and New Villain

'Star Trek Beyond' Director Talks Trailer, Plot, Title and New Villain
Yesterday, fans got their first official look at the highly-anticipated Star Trek Beyond when the trailer debuted. The action-packed footage gave us a sneak peek at the nefarious villain, played by Idris Elba, along with the rest of our favorite crew members from the U.S.S. Enterprise, Kirk (Chris Pine), Spock (Zachary Quinto), Scotty (Simon Pegg), Bones (Karl Urban), Uhura (Zoe Saldana) and Chekov (Anton Yelchin). Shortly after the trailer debuted, director Justin Lin held a roundtable interview with several press outlets, including /Film, where he offered some new insight into the footage, adding that there were other versions that didn't make the cut which were longer. He hopes the footage represents the risks they're taking with this sequel.

"Well, its a minute and a half, you know... And again, there were other versions that were much more traditional and I can see where maybe the hardcore fans could probably see that as,

Meet Fatal Deviation, Ireland's only martial arts film‏

facebook

twitter

google+

Our latest martial arts focus takes a look back at what might just be Ireland's only martial arts film to date...

There are many things that I love about Fatal Deviation, Ireland's first and - as far as I can tell - only martial arts film. What I love most however is that James Bennett, the mastermind responsible, has never apologised for it. So often, when something appears so many times on 'Worst Movies Of All Time' lists and has been ridiculed to the extent this has, the filmmakers step back. They claim they were in on the 'joke' all along or that external forces ruined their picture or that they were on the wrong drugs and made a grave mistake.

Bennett, on the other hand, has never sold out his film like that. He has stuck behind it no matter what. Even now, his official Facebook

For Halloween: Orphan

Halloween doesn’t have to be over once the last trick-or-treater has crept back into the shadows of the night. You may still be possessed by the spirit of the holiday and in desperate need of some real scares. In an effort to address that need and help you find a choice that goes beyond the usual iconography of the season, I’ve picked three titles that may not immediately jump to mind when it comes to autumn-tinged chills and terror. They are not self-consciously seasonal choices, like John Carpenter’s Halloween or Michael Dougherty’s 2007 anthology Trick ‘R Treat, both excellent choices for cinematic fear on the pumpkin circuit. Two of them rely more on mood, creeping dread, an insinuating style and, dare I say, even a poetic approach to storytelling than the usual Samhain-appropriate fare. And one has an inexplicably bad reputation in the halls of conventional wisdom,

ABC Announces 2015 Holiday Programming Schedule

'Tis the season to annoy everyone by using "'tis the season" way too many times when talking about holiday stuff. Halloween hasn't even happened yet, but the Christmas decorations are already taking over drug stores so ABC is just going ahead and announcing its 2015 holiday lineup. It's something to look forward to after the candy is gone, anyway, and since the "Toy Story 20th Anniversary Special" and "It's Your 50th Christmas, Charlie Brown" are involved, you should definitely mark your calendars.

Here's a chronological list of holiday programming highlights, via ABC:

Friday, November 27

"Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town" - In the perennial favorite created in 1970 by Rankin-Bass Productions ("Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer," "Frosty the Snowman"), Fred Astaire narrates this timeless tale of Kris Kringle (Mickey Rooney), a young boy with an immense desire to do good things for others. The vocal cast features Mickey Rooney as Kris Kringle, Keenan Wynn as Winter,

Film Review: ‘A Girl Like Her’

Film Review: ‘A Girl Like Her’
The causes and consequences of teen bullying get a potent if not entirely persuasive airing in “A Girl Like Her,” a mix of found-footage thriller, mock-doc realism and public service announcement that rings true almost as often as it rings false. There is much to admire in writer-director Amy S. Weber’s well-acted, well-meaning cautionary tale about a high-school student who attempts suicide after being relentlessly targeted by a verbally abusive classmate. Yet the film’s agenda-driven approach, while sure to strike topical chords and generate exposure in American high schools far and wide, has the inevitable effect of compromising the drama, which seems less and less convincing the more blatantly it strives for authenticity.

Weber’s film has a tough opening scene: Jessica Burns (Lexi Ainsworth), a sophomore at South Brookdale High School, opens her parents’ medicine cabinet, downs a bottle of pills and falls unconscious. All this is shot from Jessica’s p.

First Look at Danny Trejo & Danny Glover in 'Bad Ass 3'

First Look at Danny Trejo & Danny Glover in 'Bad Ass 3'
Samuel Goldwyn Films proudly announced today a day and date release of March 6, 2015 of writer/director Craig Moss' third installment in the successful Bad Ass action-comedy franchise Bad Asses on the Bayou. Bad Asses on the Bayou reunites the dynamic duo, Frank Vega (Danny Trejo) and Bernie Pope (Danny Glover), as they travel to Louisiana to attend the wedding of their dear friend Carmen Gutierrez (Loni Love). What was pictured as a wedding weekend escape to the south turns violently ugly as madness and mayhem ensue, pressing our senior heroes to once again serve justice.

Joining the Bad Asses on the Bayou ensemble is veteran actor John Amos (Die Hard 2: Die Harder, Tyler Perry's Madea's Witness Protection, Good Times, Roots) as Earl Morgan, father of bride-to-be and Carol Sutton (The Help, 21 Jump Street) as her mother, Lois Morgan.

'Movie 43' Cast on Craziest Things They've Seen on the Internet

  • NextMovie
The new comedy "Movie 43" weaves a bunch of different stories together from 12 different directors, including Peter Farrelly ("Dumb and Dumber") and Steve Carr ("Next Friday"). The vague trailer makes it difficult to figure out what the heck the movie is really about, but it all seems to be part of the master plan. And, the Nsfw website — whatismovie43.com — includes some raunchy clips that prove the ensemble cast isn't trying to make it the next "Valentine's Day."

Boasting one of the largest round-ups of famous peeps in one film, the cast features everyone from Halle Berry, Seth MacFarlane and Hugh Jackman, to Kate Winslet, Anna Faris and Emma Stone. While none of them were actually at the premiere, we were there to talk to some of the other cast members — and other folks on the red carpet — about what's the most inappropriate thing they've ever seen online.

Red Band Trailer For ‘Movie 43′ Starring Everyone

It looks like every actor, with merit, decided to do a very inappropriate, raunchy movie with Peter Farrelly. Below we have the red band trailer for Movie 43, starring everyone.

Movie 43 is a compilation of short segments, directed by different people, with a bunch of Oscar and non-Oscar winners doing and saying crazy stuff like, “Will you poop on my face?”

Probably one of the most shocking names to appear in this movie are those of Kate Winslet and Hugh Jackman, who star in a short segment revolving around a blind date.

Movie 43 is something like Valentine’s Day and New Year’s Eve, except it’s more like Jimmy Kimmel’s Celebrity Packed Fake Trailer (Google it if you haven’t seen it).

Brett Ratner, Elizabeth Banks, Mike Judge, Bob Odenkirk, Steve Barker and Damon Escot are among the many that directed these segments.
