Hanson Doesn’t Spare Huppert in Early Thriller The Bedroom Window (1987) | Blu-ray Review

In retrospect, it would appear Curtis Hanson’s 1987 thriller The Bedroom Window has all the makings of an unsung gem. At best, it’s a curio worthy of a look thanks to its bizarre pairing of Steve Guttenberg and Isabelle Huppert as a pair of (unlikely) illicit Baltimorean lovers who get unwittingly ensnared in a serial killing spree. Hanson’s follow-up to his Tom Cruise starring sex comedy Losin’ It (1983) and just prior to the string of 1990s titles which solidified his stature, Hanson adapts from Ann Holden’s novel The Witnesses.…

Jessica Jones Berated, Bested (?) by Brilliant Villain in Final Season Trailer

Trying to take down a former superhero with anger issues and quick fists is a fool’s errand… or maybe a Foolkiller’s?

The new trailer for Marvel’s Jessica Jones‘ final season certainly makes it seem that way, introducing Season 3’s big bad: a seriously messed-up individual identified as Gregory Salinger. (Fans of the comic on which the series is based will recognize Salinger as the alter ego of a villain known as Foolkiller.) The arrival of Salinger means that Jessica and Trish have to fix what’s wrong in their relationship in order to team up and defeat him.

Review: The Intruder Features Dennis Quaid’s Most Wonderfully Weird Performance to Date

In the grand tradition of psychological thrillers from yesteryear (especially the 1990s)—you know, the ones where we watch as some psychotic manipulator takes advantage of well-meaning folks who are afraid of confrontation—comes Deon Taylor’s The Intruder, an endlessly entertaining and enthralling cautionary tale about the dangers of home ownership.

The Intruder is centered around Scott and Annie Russell (played by Michael Ealy and Meagan Good), a young and successful couple who are tired of the hustle and bustle of living in downtown San Francisco and decide that they’re in need of a change of scenery. They find the home of their dreams out in Napa Valley, as widower Charlie Peck (Dennis Quaid) has decided to sell his family estate, Foxglove, and start a new life out in Florida. The Russells eagerly make an offer on the house, and as they begin to settle in to their

Glenn Close Wants to Remake Fatal Attraction from the Female Perspective

Glenn Close Wants to Remake Fatal Attraction from the Female Perspective
Glenn Close has revealed plans to try and remake Fatal Attraction through the eyes of her character Alex Forrest. Adrian Lyne's 1987 psychological erotic thriller starred Michael Douglas as Dan Gallagher who has an affair with Close's Forrest character. After Gallagher breaks it off, Forrest goes off the rails and becomes unstable, stalking Gallagher and his family, even going as far as to boil the family's pet rabbit. The bunny boiling scene quickly became a part of the cultural lexicon and is still used to this day to describe an "emotionally unstable and likely to be dangerously vengeful" person.

While many look at the Alex Forrest character as the villain of Fatal Attraction, Glenn Close believes that now is the time to tell the story through her character's eyes. Close has looked back at her character in another light and she believes it's time for audiences to do the same.

‘Fatal Attraction’ Remake: Glenn Close Is Right to Want the Story Told From Female Perspective

‘Fatal Attraction’ Remake: Glenn Close Is Right to Want the Story Told From Female Perspective
When Adrian Lyne’s unlikely blockbuster “Fatal Attraction” hit theaters in the autumn of 1987, the psycho-sexual thriller a critical and commercial hit, garnering $320 million at the box office and six Oscar nominations, including one for Glenn Close. Now, the actress has said in a recent interview with IndieWire that “Fatal Attraction” is due for a remake from the perspective of her character, Alex Forrest. And she’s exactly right.

While the sub-genre doesn’t have much heat in Hollywood these days — though Gillian Flynn’s novels have spawned some notable exceptions like “Gone Girl” and “Sharp Objects,” and the horror genre has always been compelled by unstable women and their inner lives — Close herself is hoping to give it some new blood with a fresh perspective.

“We’ve gone back to Paramount to find out, because they own the title,” Close told Deadline. “I think they’ve had some things in the works,

‘Tully’ Film Review: Charlize Theron Is a Real Mother in Bleakly Hilarious Parenthood Tale

‘Tully’ Film Review: Charlize Theron Is a Real Mother in Bleakly Hilarious Parenthood Tale
Good parents do the best they can, and we forgive them when they make mistakes. Similarly, the parenting comedy “Tully” makes a narrative misstep late in the game — and it’s a spoiler, so I’ll talk around it — but the film is otherwise so intelligent, so uncompromising and so bleakly hilarious in a genuine way that it’s easy to overlook the errors and focus on the good times.

For their third collaboration (after “Juno” and “Young Adult”), screenwriter Diablo Cody and director Jason Reitman are determined to strip away the gauzy sentimentality so often used to portray motherhood in the media. And with their “Young Adult” star Charlize Theron, they have a performer who fearlessly conveys the utter physical and spiritual devastation of constantly giving of yourself to others when all you want is a nap.

Theron stars as Marlo, a New Jersey mother of two who is about to give birth to a third child, one that was very much unplanned. Marlo’s already got her hands full: her younger son Jonah (Asher Miles Fallica, “Ozark”) displays behavior that indicates he’s on the autism spectrum, although his school principal will only refer to him as “quirky,” and her husband Drew (Ron Livingston) is always traveling for work. (And when he’s home, he’s more likely to spend his nights curled up with a video game instead of washing a dish.)

Marlo’s wealthy brother Craig (Mark Duplass) makes the offer of a “night nanny,” who will come in and stay up overnight with the new baby so that all Marlo has to do in the night is breast-feed; otherwise, she can get some much-needed sleep. She balks at first, having seen too many “The Hand That Rocks the Cradle”-inspired Lifetime movies, but ultimately, the grind of diaper-changing, breast-pumping and kid-carpooling leaves Marlo so frazzled that she finally calls up the nanny.

Enter Tully (Mackenzie Davis), seemingly the answer to all of Marlo’s prayers. Not only is she great with the baby, but she cleans the house, bakes and has real conversations with Marlo, the kind of deep and meaningful chats that take Marlo back to her carefree single days. What could go wrong?

Where “Tully” goes from here will be a matter of taste, and while I question some of Cody’s third-act ideas, I applaud her and Theron for pulling no punches about the agony of parenting; the act of tending to an infant is handled with some of the grimmest humor this side of “Eraserhead.” Whether Marlo is stepping on Legos, dealing with Jonah’s school or trying to muster the energy to put a frozen pizza in the oven, Theron gives us a brutally realistic portrait of a woman on the verge of a nervous breakdown.

The film (and the actress) go places we never see in cinematic portrayals of motherhood, whether it’s a close-up of Marlo’s nipple, distended by all that pumping, or a frazzled Marlo attempting to jog, determined to keep pace with the young college girl who breezes past her. Theron’s performance is as sardonically witty as you might expect from her work in “Young Adult,” but she participates, ego-free, in the least flattering angles that Reitman and cinematographer Eric Steelberg (“Baywatch”) can throw her way.

Also Read: Diablo Cody to Write Alanis Morissette's 'Jagged Little Pill' Musical

The performances are strong across the board — all the scenes between Theron and Davis, in particular, overflow with empathy and understanding — and Cody’s writing has never been better. She’s toning down the pop-culture references (although we do learn that the distance between Marlo’s house and Brooklyn is longer than the entire running time of Cyndi Lauper’s “She’s So Unusual”) and making her characters richer and more believable; significant silences are playing a larger role as well, and what Marlo and Drew don’t say to each other always carries more weight than what they do.

Ultimately, the film champions Marlo as a good mother, but it also honors her weariness and her indefatigability. “Tully” is no box of chocolates, to be sure, but it’s a memorable Mother’s Day gift.

Bad Samaritan review: The single white hand that sleeps with the enemy

Bad Samaritan reminds me of the glory days of ‘90s thrillers, like The Hand That Rocks the Cradle and Single White Female. Think about it, those were the most messed up premises, but they got A-list actors to play them straight. A woman poses as a nanny to get revenge on the woman who reported her husband for sexual assault? A roommate tries to be your clone and screw your boyfriend? Those were mainstream Hollywood movies, and Bad Samaritan has a doozy. Sean (Robert Sheehan) and Derek (Carlito Olivero) are freelance valets. While you’re dining at a restaurant, they drive […]

How Harvey Weinstein's accusers are fighting their way back to the top

Weinstein reportedly tried to destroy the careers of women he allegedly abused – now they’re getting new chances

This month at the Oscars, Annabella Sciorra stood on stage, arms stiff at her sides, and exhaled. “It’s nice to see you all again – it’s been a while,” she said, the words tumbling out in a rush. The last part was an understatement. The Academy Awards were Sciorra’s first major Hollywood appearance since alleging that Harvey Weinstein raped her in the early 1990s. But really, she’d been out of the spotlight for decades, the bright star of Jungle Fever and The Hand That Rocks the Cradle mysteriously snuffed out.

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,
