Drink Along Review: Darlin' – Oh My...

Drink Along Review: Darlin’ – Oh My… Darlin’ recently screened at the “What The Fest” last March at the IFC Center in New York City. The movie is a sequel to Lucky McKee’s captive horror film, The Woman. This coming of age indie horror story will definitely make you say “…what the…” from first time director Pollyanna McIntosh, who also reprises her role as the feral female. For the review, I was influenced by the DVD release of the Japanese zombie movie, Wild Zero. A special feature on the disk was a drinking game that prompted the viewer to take a drink any time certain stipulations appeared on screen like fire shooting out of something or a zombie's head blowing up. This always followed me...

SXSW 2019 Interview: Daily Dead Chats with the Cast and Crew of Darlin’

It was in 2011 when horror fans were introduced to Lucky McKee’s The Woman, with Pollyanna McIntosh taking on the eponymous character. Now, eight years later, McIntosh is stepping into a number of roles for Darlin’ (you can read my review Here), including writer, director, and co-star. The story in this sequel picks up with The Woman years after we last saw her, where she’s spent her days playing caregiver to a young woman named Darlin’ (Lauryn Canny). She leaves the teen at a hospital, and because the staff there is ill-equipped to deal with her ferociously feral demeanor, Darlin’ begins to get reintegrated into the world, courtesy of a corrupt Bishop (Bryan Batt) who takes her in and wants to utilize the girl as his own pet project, as a means of showing the value of his all-female orphanage to his superiors in the church.

SXSW Film Review: ‘Darlin”

  • Variety
Though his books were seldom issued by major publishing houses, recently deceased author Jack Ketchum has become one of the big screen’s more frequently adapted U.S. novelists. “Darlin’” isn’t based on a Ketchum tome, per se, but it does have a through line to his work: It’s a sequel to Lucky McKee’s 2011 “The Woman,” which followed Andrew van den Houten’s 2009 “Offspring,” whose print source was a sequel to Ketcham’s 1980 debut novel “Off Season.” Ketchum earned writing credits on both films, and “Off Season” was the start of a series about a cannibalistic clan in the woods of rural Maine. At the end of “The Woman,” the titular feral captive of a “civilized” family kills her keepers and returns to the wilderness, the family’s children in tow.

While “The Woman” was a queasy psychological horror-thriller about abuse in many forms, the much less

New Walking Dead 9×14 Promo Journeys Back Before The Time Jump

Curious to know how Daryl and Michonne got those nasty X scars? You may want to tune into Sunday’s episode of The Walking Dead.

Entitled “Scars,” it’s set to whisk viewers back before the time jump, after set photos revealed a pregnant Michonne wandering the zombie wasteland with only her katana for company. That’s exciting in and of itself, but AMC has now premiered another promo for The Walking Dead season 9×14 in which young Judith asks Daryl: “What would my dad do?”

She is, of course, referring to Rick Grimes, the Walking Dead stalwart who is presumed dead by many of his fellow survivors. Only we know that to be different, so it’ll be interesting to see if AMC’s “eye-opening secrets from the past” have something to do with Andrew Lincoln’s wayward hero.

SXSW 2019 Reviews: Darlin’, Tone-deaf, and Body At Brighton Rock

With the 2019 SXSW Film Festival still in full swing this week, here’s a look at three of the titles that have recently debuted at the festival as part of the Midnighters programming slate: Darlin’ from Pollyanna McIntosh, Richard Bates, Jr.’s Tone-Deaf, and Body at Brighton Rock, directed by Roxanne Benjamin.

Darlin’: Pollyanna McIntosh has been a steadfast fixture on the indie genre scene for years now, and has been a great addition to the cast of The Walking Dead as well, so it was great to see her taking on both the writing and directorial reins for Darlin’, the follow-up story to Lucky McKee’s The Woman (in which McIntosh portrayed the film’s titular character). A sequel that unfolds in real time in relation to its predecessor, Darlin’ picks up with The Woman (with McIntosh reprising her role) dropping off her feral teenage daughter (Lauryn Canny) outside of a hospital,

[SXSW Review] Pollyanna McIntosh’s ‘Darlin’ is an Underwhelming Follow-Up to ‘The Woman’

[SXSW Review] Pollyanna McIntosh’s ‘Darlin’ is an Underwhelming Follow-Up to ‘The Woman’
In 2011, Lucky McKee unleashed The Woman on the world. That film was a sequel to the 2009 film Offspring and now, eight years later, the saga of The Woman continues (concludes?) with Darlin’. The Woman was a brutal, uncomfortable piece of cinema that offered a unique look at gender dynamics and civilization. Darlin’, though well-directed by franchise star Pollyanna McIntosh, suffers […]

The Walking Dead Photo Reveals First Look At Pregnant Michonne

Things are seriously beginning to heat up for AMC’s The Walking Dead.

With season 9B well underway, and Daryl Dixon in the middle of a full-blown standoff with Beta, the zombie drama is enjoying something of a ratings boon – albeit a small one – and next week’s installment will surely turn heads and raise eyebrows.

Why, you ask? Because it’ll offer us our first glimpse at a pregnant Michonne, who is seen wandering the wasteland with nothing but her katana for company. We know Danai Gurira’s series veteran fell pregnant during 9×03, “Warning Signs,” where she agreed to build a walking, talking legacy with the late Rick Grimes. It’s a poignant moment, and one that Gurira welcomed with open arms.

“When [showrunner] Angela [Kang] told me we were going to do that — first thing, I was stunned, because I never expected that to be where we would go,” said the actress.

Darlin' Resurrects a Familiar Character at this Year's SXSW Film Festival

Darlin' is a sequel to the 2011 film The Woman. In the previous film, the last woman of a crazed clan was captured and confined in a family's home. This original title was directed by Lucky McKee (Tales of Halloween) and starred Pollyanna McIntosh ("The Walking Dead"). This time, McIntosh is helming the sequel, with McKee participating as a producer. Jack Ketchm, writer of the first film, also returns as a producer. And now, a teaser trailer has been released for Darlin' just ahead of the film's World Premiere. The teaser trailer shows a young girl and a Catholic priest. She has the devil inside her. Meanwhile, not far away, another crazed character is looming in the woods and set to provide a chill. Darlin' will have its World Premiere tonight, at the SXSW Film Festival. This event takes place every year in Austin, Texas. As well, Darlin' will have three showings during the week.

‘Walking Dead’ actress Sabrina Gennarino stars in horror flick ‘Darlin”

Actress Sabrina Gennarino’s filmography seems lately to be leaning more toward the horror genre. That, she said, is just a coincidence as she believes in going where the good scripts are, and she found that in her characters on TV’s “The Walking Dead” and “The Purge.” So when her former “Walking Dead” co-star Pollyanna McIntosh asked her to star in the horror feature film “Darlin’” Gennarino said it was a no-brainer. The film is McIntosh’s directorial debut, which she also wrote and stars in the flick. With her attached, Gennarino was happy to take on the project. “I love her

With SXSW now in full swing, it's about time that some of the hotly anticipated features start to share teases to whet the appetites of filmgoers. One of my must-see films this year is Pollyanna McIntosh's directorial debut, Darlin'. A sequel to Lucky McKee's The Woman and the third part of a series based on a Jack Ketchum novel that began with The Offspring, Darlin' partially follows the further adventures of McIntosh's title character from the former and picks up a new character in Darlin'. The PR describes the film thusly: Found at a Catholic hospital filthy and ferocious, feral teenager Darlin' (Lauryn Canny) is whisked off to a care home run by The Bishop (Brian Batt of Mad Men) and his obedient nuns where...
