  • The AV Club
At this year’s Riot Fest in Chicago, The A.V. Club asked bands to play a game we call Punk Or Not Punk, in which they rate random things on an arbitrary, dichotomic scale. This round, A Day To Remember rates knitting and Slc Punk!, and tells us about the time they unwillingly ended up at a convention for furries.

Evan Peters's Creepy Blue Hair on Ahs: Cult Was Actually Inspired by Another Actor

Image Source: FX If you ask me, the grossest part of American Horror Story: Cult so far hasn't been the gory murders. Or the gimp. Or even those clowns boning in the produce aisle. For the past five episodes, I've been terrorized by the greasy, colorful mop posing as hair on Evan Peters's head. Fortunately, I now know who I can direct my anger about this choice in hairstyle to, and it's not Ryan Murphy. Peters, who plays charismatic and psychotic cult leader Kai Anderson, recently sat down with Entertainment Weekly to discuss how he prepared for the role. In addition to revealing that he pulled inspiration for his character from the Netflix documentary Holy Hell, he also shared the reasoning behind Kai's blue 'do: Matthew Lillard. Say what? Lillard's role in cult hit Slc Punk! features him sporting a bright blue hue on some gelled-up hair, which stuck with Peters.

Five Things You Didn’t Know About Devon Sawa

Everyone has a few actors who they love growing up. As we grow up, it is only natural to wonder what the actors are up to. Sometimes, looking up actors from one’s childhood can reveal things that one didn’t expect. Such is the case for fans of 90s star Devon Sawa, whose talents and background are actually far more diverse than one might expect. Sawa rose to fame thanks to performances in Casper and Slc Punk! He transitioned from a wholesome teen actor to work in edgier projects like the music video for Eminem’s “Stan.” While fans may look back

‘How to Talk to Girls at Parties’ Review: Elle Fanning Is a Free Love Alien in John Cameron Mitchell’s Bizarre Return to Form

‘How to Talk to Girls at Parties’ Review: Elle Fanning Is a Free Love Alien in John Cameron Mitchell’s Bizarre Return to Form
Hokey aliens invade the seventies British punk scene in John Cameron Mitchell’s “How to Talk to Girls at Parties,” and the results are not nearly as ridiculous as that sounds — for a while, at least. Channeling the communal intimacy of “Shortbus” and the riotous musicality of “Hedwig and the Angry Inch,” Mitchell transforms Neil Gaiman’s sci-fi short story into a vibrant, edgy and at times outright goofy statement on tough antiestablishment rebels and freewheeling hippy vibes, suggesting that they’re not really all that that different.

At its center, scrawny, leather-clad punk teen Enn (Alex Sharp) veers across the grimy London suburb of Croydon alongside equally rambunctious pals John (Ethan Lawrence) and Vic (Abraham Lewis), heckling at passersby en route to a noisy concert. As English rockers The Damned blast on the soundtrack, the frame rate gets jagged and the kids seem to content to run wild in

Slc Punk! February 3rd at Schlafly Bottleworks

“In a country of lost souls rebellion comes hard. But in a religiously oppressive city, where half it’s population isn’t even of that religion, it comes like fire!”

Slc Punk! screens Wednesday night February 3rd at Schlafly Bottleworks at 8pm

Last month at Webster University’s Strange Brew Film series, we went back in time to 1976. This month, we go back to 1985 for a look at punk rockers adrift in a city of confounding religious values.

Writer-director James Merendino’s Slc Punk! (made in 1998) is a tour through Salt Lake City through the eyes of two punks, Stevo (Mathew Lillard), an intellectual punk rocker devoted to anarchy and Heroin Bob (Michael Goorjian) circa 1985. Stevo makes it clear early that Heroin Bob’s name is ironic for the fact that he is petrified of drugs, needles in particular. Stevo narrates the movie in the style of a documentary about punks in the Utah area,

2015 Sundance Film Festival Predictions List: An Introduction

Whether you are a filmmaker, or one of the Sundance programmers whose task it is to identify the films that make up a line-up, it is indeed the most wonderful, panic-filled and nerve racking time of the year. The 31st edition of the Sundance Film Festival kicks off on January 22nd with Park City and Salt Lake City playing host to some of the more innovative, thought-provoking narrative and non-fiction films of 2015. Last year, a Jenga tall order of 4,057 features and 8,161 shorts were submitted. Now let’s think about those numbers for a second.

Twenty years ago, Terry Zwigoff’s Crumb claimed the Grand Jury Prize Documentary award, Living in Oblivion‘s Tom Dicillo was honored with the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award, and Edward Burns’ micro-budgeted The Brothers McMullen (there is a read-worthy, lively, eleventh hour account on how it was submitted to the fest in Ted Hope’s “Hope
