Watch: ‘The Shape of Water’s Fishman Falls on Hard Times in Cut SNL Sketch

Guillermo del Toro's The Shape of Water winning four Oscars wasn't just a big win for The Others among us, but also for Fishpeople in particular. The merfolk, as they were traditionally known, had been living below the radar and beneath the surface for centuries before the romance movie brought them into the spotlight. Now, as more and more fishfolk attempt to make it big in Hollywood, they're struggling along with everyone else to make it out in La La Land. Even for the famous fishman of del Toro's award-winning film, fame is fleeting and …

Movie Review – Marrowbone (2017)

Marrowbone, 2017.

Written and directed by Sergio G. Sánchez.

Starring George MacKay, Anya Taylor-Joy, Charlie Heaton, Mia Goth, Matthew Stagg, Kyle Soller and Tom Fisher.

Synopsis:

A family who have concealed the death of their mother so they can stay together find themselves plagued by noisy spirits who seem to represent the spectre of their evil father.

There might not be a corner of horror cinema as ripe for allegory as the ghost story. From the classics of The Haunting to more modern fare like Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak, the cinematic ghost story is often about everything other than the ghosts themselves. That’s certainly true in the case of Marrowbone, which is a rich and intense horror movie that is set in the 1960s, but feels much older by virtue of the Gothic house in which its action unfolds.

Trailer Arrives For Cannes 2018 Opener ‘Everybody Knows’

Everybody Knows trailer

We announced just yesterday that Asghar Farhadi’s Everybody Knows will open the 2018 Cannes Film Festival, and now we can deliver the very first trailer for the film.

Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz lead the cast of the film.

Asghar Farhadi’s 8th feature film, shot entirely in Spanish on the Iberian Peninsula, charts the story of Laura, who lives with her husband and children in Buenos Aires. When they return together to her native village in Spain for a family celebration, an unexpected event changes the course of their lives. The family, its ties and the moral choices imposed on them lie, as in every one of Farhadi’s scripts, at the heart of the plot.

According to the official release from Cannes organisers, José Luis Alcaine is director of photography on the film (a regular collaborator of Pedro Almodóvar, Carlos Saura and Bigas Luna), the

Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem’s ‘Everybody Knows’ to Open Cannes Film Festival (Exclusive)

Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem’s ‘Everybody Knows’ to Open Cannes Film Festival (Exclusive)
Two-time Oscar-winning filmmaker Asghar Farhadi’s psychological thriller “Everybody Knows,” starring Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz and Ricardo Darin, is set to open the 71st Cannes Film Festival, Variety has learned.

Everybody Knows” (“Todos Lo Saben”) will mark only the second Spanish-language film to open Cannes, following Pedro Almodovar’s “Bad Education,” which kicked off the festival in 2004. It is also one of the few openers in recent memory not in either English or French.

The festival will likely make an official announcement about the selection of “Everybody Knows” as the opening night film either later Wednesday or in the coming days.

The choice clearly reflects the outlook of Cannes artistic director Thierry Fremaux, who has aimed in recent years at kicking off the festival with films that bring together a critically acclaimed auteur, including the likes of Wes Anderson and Arnaud Desplechin, with an attractive, glamorous cast.

Domhnall Gleeson says his next film The Little Stranger is “a very unsettling psychological ghost story”

The ever-busy Domhnall Gleeson is set to reunite with his Frank director Lenny Abrahamson for his next movie The Little Stranger, and during an interview with Digital Spy the Irish actor has teased what we can expect from their upcoming collaboration:

“”I wouldn’t say [it’s a] horror,” said Gleeson. “It’s a ghost story – a very unsettling psychological ghost story, in a way that I think will be compulsive. There’s an oddness to it. You know like The Others and films like that – there’s something like that about it. Oh, Whistle and I’ll Come to You – it’s got that vibe to it. And Gaslight – not exactly that vibe because they’re older, but it’s got something of that oddness to it, creeping psychological dread, that I think is scary but not quite horror. The guy I’m playing is containing a lot of remorse and anger and sadness and sexuality.

The house by the water by Jennie Kermode

Loftus Hall, the haunted house where The Lodgers was shot

Twin siblings isolated in a crumbling mansion deep in the Irish countryside. A sinister presence watching them, stealing a little closer every night. Dark secrets, a curse, and unexpected romance. The Lodgers is a chilling slice of old fashioned Gothic horror, and it's one of the offerings at this year's Glasgow Film Festival. I asked director Brian O'Malley if he approached it as part of the recent genre revival.

"I'm a longstanding fan of Gothic period ghost stories," he tells me. "I discovered The Innocents - you know the 1962 film - when I was in my late teens. I always found that type of horror to be about mood and tone and what's implied rather than what's obvious to the camera. I liked some of the more recent film like The Others, The Orphanage and The Devil's Backbone. I find it a really.

Requiem episode 1 review

Aliya Whiteley Feb 2, 2018

With spoilers, here's our review of the first episode of Requiem...

In these days of boundless choice when it comes to entertainment, sometimes I find I don’t know what I want to watch next. From the latest cinematic offerings to the range of options with each streaming service: what is it that will really reward my attention? Realism or escapism? Drama or comedy? I’ve had a lacklustre January, entertainment-wise, moving from one thing to another and never really getting sucked in to a story. But then I watched the first episode of Requiem and realised that what I was after was a dose of old-school unashamed horror.

Requiem has everything that reminds me of those films of the past that got right under my skin and stayed there: The Turn Of The Screw came to mind, as did 1974 horror film Symptoms, and Alejandro Amenábar’s The Others.

New Trailer For The Eerie Gothic Irish Horror Thriller The Lodgers

We've got an eerie new trailer for you to check out for a wickedly creepy gothic haunted house horror thriller called The Lodgers. The story is set in the 1920s and centers on twins who live together in an old gothic haunted mansion filled with dark and malevolent spirits that terrorize them.

I love watching horror movies like this, and I really like what I'm seeing in this trailer. The movie has a similar tone to films like The Others, Crimson Peak, and The Woman in Black, all of which I liked. Here's the synopsis:

A gothic ghost story about orphaned twins Edward and Rachel who share a crumbling manor in 1920s rural Ireland. But they are not alone. They share the house with unseen entities who control them with three absolute rules. As separate fates draw them apart, the twins must face the terrible truth about their family’s ghostly tormentors.

‘Mission: Impossible’ Producer Paula Wagner to Be Honored at Camerimage

Poland’s Camerimage cinematography fest, which kicked off Saturday, will honor Paula Wagner with its prize for “producer with unique visual sensitivity,” in recognition for her work on such films as “Mission: Impossible” and other partnerships with co-producer Tom Cruise.

With four decades of work, starting with projects such as Alejandro Amenábar’s chiller “The Others” and Billy Ray’s journalist drama “Shattered Glass,” the former actress built her career via agency work, repping talents such as Sean Penn, Val Kilmer, Demi Moore and Liam Neeson while at the Creative Artists Agency.

In 1993, she launched Cruise/Wagner Productions, which took on the film adaptation of the hit ‘70s TV suspense series “Mission: Impossible,” launching the franchise that continues to roll along. Cruise and Wagner also worked on Cameron Crowe’s mystery romance “Vanilla Sky,” based on Amenábar’s “Abre los ojos.”

Wagner then produced Edward Zwick’s Cruise-starrer “The Last Samurai,” exec produced

The 20 Scariest Movie Scenes of the 21st Century
Horror movies are so much more than the sum of its parts, but no genre is more dependent on the power of discrete scenes, self-contained episodes to make you feel like you’re sweating through what’s happening on screen first-hand. It doesn’t matter if a horror movie is an atmospheric slow-burn, or if it’s a symphony of jump-scares that alternates between peaks of sustained tension and long valleys of eerie calm, all of the most terrifying films rely on a few unforgettable moments. Some of these instances are long setpieces, some are just perfectly executed jolts, but all of them are exquisitely traumatizing microcosms of the movies that contain them.

Nicole Kidman’s Best Performances — IndieWire Critics Survey

Nicole Kidman’s Best Performances — IndieWire Critics Survey
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: In honor of “The Killing of a Sacred Deer,” what is Nicole Kidman’s greatest performance?

Vadim Rizov (@VRizov), Filmmaker Magazine

I don’t know about “best” — I haven’t seen an embarrassing chunk of what are considered her most significant roles, and I’m weak on understanding acting — but the performance that sticks most in my mind (quite possibly because I saw it at impressionable high school age) is “Dogville.” Kidman is spookily withdrawn, like an observer alien in a human body dropped into a moral wasteland which she attempts to navigate with understanding and decorum until finally it’s just too much. As in “Birth,

'Marrowbone': Film Review | Tiff 2017
Children and big, mystery-stuffed houses are hardly unusual ingredients in thrillers; they're about as common as bumps in the night. But their pairing in Marrowbone, the first feature directed by Sergio G. Sanchez, strikes a familiar and deeply satisfying chord. Set in 1969 America but filmed in Spain, it from the start recalls several other pictures made in Spain by Spanish or Mexican filmmakers: not just The Orphanage, which Sanchez wrote for director J.A. Bayona, but Alejandro Amenabar's The Others and the Spanish Civil War-set ghost stories of Guillermo del Toro. (Tellingly, Marrowbone's Alvaro Augustin has served as a producer...
