‘Light as a Feather’ Review: Hulu’s Fast-Moving Teen Horror Series Is Fun and Freaky, but Hardly Frightening

‘Light as a Feather’ Review: Hulu’s Fast-Moving Teen Horror Series Is Fun and Freaky, but Hardly Frightening
Light as a Feather” is Hulu’s teen horror adventure with a mystery as engrossing as it is grotesque, and just creepy enough to scratch that Halloween itch without keeping you up at night. When popular high-school-clique leader Olivia (Peyton List) invites new girl Violet (Haley Ramm) to hang out with them at the cemetery on Halloween, Violet insists they play the party game Light as a Feather, Stiff as a Board. Before attempting to lift or “levitate” each girl, she is told an elaborate story about how she’ll die. When one girl ends up perishing exactly as predicted, the rest are left scrambling to figure out who or what they’re up against before they also end up dead.

Hulu has already been representing the horror genre well with the excellent “Castle Rock” and Blumhouse’s new anthology movie series “Into the Dark.” In dipping its toes into the teen horror well,

Frightfest 2018: 10 Questions with ‘The Ranger’ director Jenn Wexler

What is it about the Punk movement you like so much? It informs so much of The Ranger…

I’m incredibly drawn to punk’s spirit of rebellion and its embracing of individuality. Growing up in the suburbs, there was so much pressure to fit in, to be seen as “normal,” and going to punk shows was thrilling for me because it helped me realize it was okay to want other things. I went to college in Philadelphia at the University of the Arts and studied screenwriting, where my classmate, Giaco, wrote a script that would eventually become The Ranger. I fell in love with the concept of a group of punks going up against this figure of authority, someone who deems them less than, because they don’t conform to what he values as worthy. I find personality types like this terrifying– ones that say you have to fit

Cheers for tears! How Dawson's Creek helped teen TV get emotional

From the Oc to Riverdale, the erudite 90s phenomenon changed the face of pop culture – and spawned the ultimate emotional meme

• Read a ‘lost’ page of Dawson’s Creek’s script

No matter how old you are, no matter how untouched by human emotion you pretend to be, it is going to happen to you. You are going to develop feelings for a soapy TV drama aimed at American teens. If your formative television watching years occurred in the 90s, there were innumerable opportunities to develop unexpected infatuations: this was the decade of My So-Called Life, Party of Five, Felicity, Buffy and – rising like a phoenix above all its angsty contemporaries – Dawson’s Creek.

In the late 90s, screenwriter Kevin Williamson was being hailed for his part in reinvigorating the horror genre with his smart, sarcastic, self-aware scripts for the hugely profitable Scream series, I Know What You Did Last Summer and The Faculty.

Robert Rodriguez Calls Harvey Weinstein ‘Truly Disgusting’ and Rose McGowan Has Something to Say About That

Robert Rodriguez Calls Harvey Weinstein ‘Truly Disgusting’ and Rose McGowan Has Something to Say About That
Add pioneering indie filmmaker Robert Rodriguez to the list of former Harvey Weinstein associates now condemning the fallen media mogul. Rodriguez released a statement to Deadline:

“I find the behavior of Harvey Weinstein truly disgusting, both what he did and how he covered his tracks, and it makes me wonder how many others can’t come forward and tell their full story because of legal and personal intimidation. His repulsive behavior was an abuse of power. Thankfully, he’s now discovering what true power is.”

Rodriguez has a long history with Weinstein, starting with 1995’s “Four Rooms,” which was distributed by Miramax, and then franchises such as “From Dusk Till Dawn,” “The Faculty,” “Spy Kids,” and “Sin City,” which came out through the Weinsteins’ Dimension Films label.

However, TWC also released Rodriguez’s “Grindhouse” in 2007. That film starred his then-girlfriend, Rose McGowan, who is among the scores of women who

Halloween 2017: 31 Movies to Watch on Hulu This October

  • DailyDead
Last week, I gave you guys a few lists from Amazon and Netflix in regards to what they have to offer via their streaming services this fall. As a newbie to Hulu, I only discovered over the weekend that they, too, beyond just being an amazing resource for television programming, offer up a killer selection of genre movies that are free to stream with a standard Hulu membership.

Here’s a look at an assortment of 31 films from Hulu that I think would be great movies to stream this October. I tried to give you guys a wide variety, too, hitting various sub-genres, so hopefully there’s a little bit of something for everyone in this list.

The Faculty

As far as high school horror films go, The Faculty has remained one of my very favorites for years now. Essentially, it’s Robert Rodriguez riffing on The X-Files, and who can resist that?

Video: 5 Best Teenage Slasher Movies

Everyone loves a good slasher movie. It’s got everything a movie lover wants- dumb teenagers with hormones and serial killers who are bent on finding them. Plus, lots and lots of bad decisions. It’s like a game of cat and mouse only most of the time the mouse loses. With that in mind, we would like to share with you five of the best slasher movies around.

5. I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997)

While this movie didn’t get many favorable reviews, Jim Gillespie’s I Know What You Did Last Summer has all the elements of a slasher film. Clueless teenagers and a relentless killer. Loosely adapted from a Lois Duncan novel, Kevin Williamson’s script flips the hit and run incident from a small boy to a fishermen. There was a lot of things that worked in this movie-particularly the attractive cast and the inspiration

Artist Bernie Wrightson Has Passed Away

His illustrations may have caused you to dread the next full moon, avoid the swamp on your shortcut home, or ignite your imagination with a peek into the post-apocalypse. Through his artwork, Bernie Wrightson has influenced and inspired generations of horror fans, so it is with great sadness that we inform readers that the prolific artist has passed away at the age of 68 after a long battle with brain cancer.

Wrightson's wife, Liz, shared the somber news of her husband's passing earlier today on the artist's official website and Facebook page.

A fan of EC Comics growing up, Bernie Wrightson, aka "Berni," began working on projects for both DC and Marvel early in his career, co-creating the complex character Swamp Thing with writer Len Wein in the early ’70s. Bernie later worked for Warren Publishing, where he helped bring H.P. Lovecraft and Edgar Allan Poe stories to life on the paneled page.

Melanie Lynskey Stages ‘The Intervention’ in First Trailer For Clea DuVall’s Directorial Debut

While she’s been in the front of the camera for the last two decades acting in films such as The Faculty, Girl, Interrupted, Zodiac, Argo, and more, Clea DuVall recently made her directorial and writing debut with The Intervention. Also starring in the film, she appears alongside Melanie Lynskey, Natasha Lyonne, Vincent Piazza, Jason Ritter, Ben Schwartz, Alia Shawkat, and Cobie Smulders as a marriage intervention goes awry.

We said in our review, “it’s a sharp script with distinct observations helping it rise above the plethora of other similarly-themed fare. Peter’s infuriating disregard of his wife, along with connotations to domestic abuse, help to spur our involvement in wanting this intervention to succeed, as impeccably awkward as it is. Lynskey steals the show as she deals with her own demons, yet presents a bubbly outward personality in attempting to take control while rarely triumphing in these regard.

Exclusive Interview with filmmaker Robert Rodriguez

Robert Rodriguez interview

Movie director Robert Rodriguez is one of our favourites. His resume includes Desperado, Sin City, The Faculty, Spy Kids, From Dusk Till Dawn, Planet Terror and Machete, and eclectic range of genre films that all hit the right spot.

Rodriguez is somewhat of a maverick film director. He’s not one to play by the expected rules of the movie world, be that in what he puts on the screen or how he interacts with his peers. During his career he has left both the screen writers and directors guild in favour of blazing his own path. His latest venture has been to create his own television network ‘El Rey’ which caters to a Latin American audience.

He used the platform to bring back a project from his past From Dusk Till Dawn; the film starred George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino as brothers and criminal Seth and Richard Gecko.

How well does the Slasher movie format translate to TV?

With the Scream TV series back on air and Scream Queens season 2 on its way, we look at the rules of making successful slasher TV...

Warning: contains mild spoilers for MTV's Scream season one.

"Think about it," says Noah Foster in the pilot episode of MTV's Scream. "Girl and her friends arrive at the dance, the camp, the deserted town, whatever. Killer-with-a-gimmick takes them out one-by-one. Ninety minutes later, the sun comes up as the girl sits in the back of the ambulance watching her friends' bodies being wheeled past. Roll credits."

It's an awkward piece of self-aware dialogue but also a fair, if simplistic, summation of what a slasher movie is. Like a musical or a rom-com the slasher genre is one hardwired to hit the same familiar beats each time around and, like a musical or a rom-com, audiences keep coming back for more.

The Superman Films That Were Never Made

This week, Neil Calloway looks at Superman movies that were planned but never shot…

When the Christopher Reeve fronted Superman films came to a juddering halt in 1987 it would be almost twenty years before Clark Kent made another appearance on the big screen.

To be fair, between Superman IV: The Quest For Peace and 2006’s under appreciated Superman Returns, Superman was rarely off the small screen, featuring in Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman from 1993 to 1997 and in Smallville from 2001-2010 (proving that Gotham wasn’t the first attempt to show the origins of a DC superhero on TV). However, its near ubiquity on television didn’t stop several attempts to return it to the big screen.

Producer Jon Peters (who had produced Tim Burton’s 1989 Batman film) spent the mid nineties attempting to bring Superman back. Originally titled Superman Reborn, Kevin Smith (such a comic book fan
