What Does a Princess Wear to a Halloween Costume Party?

Malice in Wonderland: The pleasures and perils of Nicolas Winding Refn’s The Neon Demon

As the auditorium lights fade and Cliff Martinez’s euphoric, oppressive score ushers in the title sequence for Nicolas Winding Refn’s The Neon Demon we are presented with the director’s own monogram under the title. It’s the first sign of what’s to come. The Neon Demon is a divisive film, horrifying and beautiful to look at; […]

That League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen Reboot is Inching Closer to Reality

Almost exactly a year ago, we wrote about how 20th Century Fox planned a feature film reboot for The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, the box office bomb from 2003 that was an adaptation of Alan Moore's well-respected comic book series. We hadn't heard anything about the new version of the film since last year's update, so I assumed the movie just fell into development hell or was abandoned altogether.

But here comes Variety, swooping in to confirm that not only is the movie apparently still happening, but it's closer to life than ever. Producer John Davis still doesn't have a director or cast in place, but he did hire a writer: Jayson Rothwell, the guy behind movies like Malice in Wonderland and the Christmas horror comedy Silent Night. That's not exactly what I'd call great news for those who had high hopes this reboot would be a massive improvement over the original movie,

Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition recap Season 2 episode 11: Malice in Wonderland

With one week to go to the finale, we’ve reached the point of Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition where the show should theoretically be about dance alone. Am I right? The also-rans have gone home. The remaining dancers are all deserving. The mothers are well-behaved … well, except for Cindy. But her big problem was JoJo and Jessalynn, and they’re back in Nebraska. So nothing but earnest, honest competition and great dancing, yes? No. Cindy just said she would do whatever needs to be done to win this thing. There will still be hysteria. • Related: Dance Moms Cares and Dance Moms […]

The Many Iterations of Malice in Wonderland: A Movie Review

Director: Simon Fellows.

Writer: Jayson Rothwell.

Cast: Maggie Grace, Danny Dyer and Matt King.

Interestingly, Malice in Wonderland has seen several incarnations throughout the years. In ’82, it was a short film and in ’85, it was a television series. And the musical version, featuring Snoop Dogg and Jamie Foxx, may not be for everyone.

To those people who can “dig it,” you will certainly love Gary Beadle ("EastEnders") who plays a very hip Felix Chester. Although his role is a very small one, his appearance is what defines this film. His charisma and charm is perfect for the role he’s placed in.

The story looks at the life of an American lost in the boroughs of London. Alice (Maggie Grace) is on the run. She’s introduced to viewers as a woman fleeing from someone in London’s subway system. After leaving one hole, she enters another — and she has

Update: Malcolm McDowell Headlines a 'Silent Night, Deadly Night' Remake

Update: Malcolm McDowell Headlines a 'Silent Night, Deadly Night' Remake
Update! Anchor Bay just sent out a press release, saying that they have acquired North American distribution rights to the new Silent Night. The Genre Company and Ember Productions are teaming up for a "loose remake" of 1984's Silent Night, Deadly Night. Frankly I'm shocked it took them this long to get around to remaking it. We've got the details after the jump. Steven C. Miller (The Aggression Scale) will direct a script by Jayson Rothwell (Malice in Wonderland). This version will simply be titled Silent Night, which is a huge mistake in my opinion. When I was 10 years old and searching the video store for my weekend movie, I was drawn to Silent Night, Deadly Night solely for the...

'Silent Night' Senseless Night

This just in from the Not Another Pointless Remake, Oh Yes Another Pointless Remake desk: Malcolm McDowell, who apparently has tax problems or wants to add a hot tub to his pool or something, has signed to star in Silent Night, the forthcoming remake of 1984's notorious Santa slasher flick, Silent Night, Deadly Night.

Variety is reporting that Silent Night, which will be directed by Steven C. Miller (Scream of the Banshee) and written by Jayson Rothwell (Malice in Wonderland), will be a "loose" remake. So if you're a devoted fan of the original movie, you can be either extremely outraged or barely outraged. Or, like the rest of humanity, you can just stare blankly, shake your head slowly and utter a snide aside along the lines of "of course" or "because why not."

Apparently, the focus of the new version of this horrific holiday classic will shift the focus

CSI Review: Down The Rabbit Hole

  • TVfanatic
I enjoy CSI the most when it embraces and take advantage of the quirks and unique aspects of Las Vegas - and there isn’t any bigger stereotype for the former home of the Rat Pack than weddings.

This week, "Malice in Wonderland" sets our case right in the middle of the marriage industry, which actually worked to tell us more about the team than about the two masked robbers. For example, we learned that Finn never got a chance to marry the love of her life, but did have two weddings of her own.

I really liked how we had to be paying attention to the conversations to find the little nuggets of information about Finn and her history. I’m guessing by the closing scene that the love of her life must have also died before she was able to walk down the aisle.

CSI – Nadia Bjorlin is “Malice in Wonderland”

  • Boomtron
Nadia Bjorlin, also known as Chloe from Days of Our Lives, has been cast in an upcoming episode of CSI, titled “Malice in Wonderland.” When you use a title that so blatantly references Lewis Carroll I expect to see some serious Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland themes. Those may be hidden at this point to surprise us when the episode airs, because from what we know of Bjorlin’s character nothing screams Lewis Carroll. One can still hope, however slim the chances are.

The news of the casting broke out over Bjorlin’s Twitter. “Malice in Wonderland,” the 18th episode of the season, will see Bjorlin as Crystal Hasselbeck, a con artist in Las Vegas with a talent for messing with the hearts of unsuspecting men. Her main con that nets her all of her money is to get engaged, break things off, and then keep the ring to sell for big bucks.

CSI Scoop: Days Alum Nadia Bjorlin Scores a Most 'Engaging' Guest Role
Days of Our Lives alumna Nadia Bjorlin will play a gal who’s perpetually heading for a wedding on an upcoming episode of CBS’ CSI.

After the brunette beauty tweeted about the new gig, TVLine went on to confirm the details: In Episode 18, titled “Malice in Wonderland,” Bjorlin guest-stars as Crystal Hasselbeck, a Las Vegas minx who has made a bit of a cottage industry of getting engaged, breaking it off and then holding onto the ring.

Saoirse Ronan to Star in Disney's Snow White Re-Imagining

  • Fandango
While the bulk of the attention concerning Snow White has been Mirror Mirror and this summer's Snow White and the Huntsman, Disney has quietly been tinkering with their own re-imagined version of the tale. A while back, their version was said to be a kung-fu take on the story with Natalie Portman, Michael Chabon and The Matrix fight choreographer Yuen Woo-ping all being involved at some point. Now with a re-polished script from Jayson Rothwell (Malice in Wonderland)and Michael DeBruyn and Austrailian director Michael Gracey now on board to helm the project, it seems this latest re-imagining is ready to roll.   Saoirse Ronan will star in Order of Seven, which attempts to ditch the narrative ties with the fairy tale. Instead the story will center on Olivia Sinclair...
