It Follows Mastermind Takes on Horror Thriller They Hear It

It Follows Mastermind Takes on Horror Thriller They Hear It
They Hear It, and guess what? So do we. Every once in a while, a horror movie comes along that divides genre fans down the middle and sends them to extreme opposite ends of a spectrum. The 3 most infamous examples from recent years are The Babadook, The Witch, and It Follows. Horror connoisseurs either loved these films or hated them, with no one occupying a gray area or sitting on a fence; and everyone had an opinion.

While dialog was heated and included terms like "metaphorical storytelling" and "elevated horror", It Follows seemed especially prone to dissection, as it's the most surreal and open-to-interpretation of the bunch. As a result, writer/director David Robert Mitchell was thrust into a position of prominence and, whether you loved It Follows or hated it, everyone is curious to see what he'll do next.

THR reported yesterday that Legendary Entertainment and producer The Picture Company have fast tracked the feature film They Hear It an adaptation of Julian Terry's horror short film Whisper (see image above and the short below).

The story revolves around a mysterious presence called "The Sound" that once heard by anyone has terrible consequences. Sources say the expanded feature will have the Alfred Hitchcock classic The Birds and Stephen King’s adaptation It as touchstones. Though he has usually only written for his own films Mitchell recently...

Gotham season 3 episode 10 review: Time Bomb

Kayti Burt Nov 22, 2016

All bets are off in Gotham season 3 now that Bruce knows the Court of Owls has a weakness...

This review contains spoilers.

See related Close To The Enemy episode 2 review Close To The Enemy episode 1 review Wolf Hall: controversy, adaptation and poetic licence

3.10 Time Bomb

Time Bomb was a particularly bloody episode of Gotham, but it balanced the gore by tying together multiple plotlines in satisfying ways. Though, in many ways, Time Bomb felt like a transitionary ep — Mario and Lee race closer to the altar, Bruce and Selina discuss their relationship, the noose tightens on Oswald's secret — it was elegantly told, which is something Gotham can't often boast.

Ed has gone from lovebird mode to depressed lump to heartbroken vengeance mode in zero seconds flat. Again, I would be a bit more invested in this storyline if Isabella wasn't a plot device and she and

Josh Holloway and Sarah Wayne Callies on Reuniting for USA’s New Sci-Fi Thriller Colony

Josh Holloway and Sarah Wayne Callies on Reuniting for USA’s New Sci-Fi Thriller Colony
USA’s new genre-bending series Colony is part espionage thriller, part family drama with a dash of sci-fi, but don’t obsess over the aliens — because they may not even be aliens, says co-creator Ryan Condal (Hercules). Set in the near future in Los Angeles, the show, premiering January 14, centers on one family’s struggle for survival as they are torn by opposing forces: the collaborators and the resistance of an occupation that took place nine months earlier and which has divided the city into three separate blocks. Colony stars Josh Holloway (Lost, Intelligence) and Sarah Wayne Callies (Prison Break, The Walking Dead) as a married couple who were separated from one of their three children during the occupation. Vulture spoke with Holloway and Callies about working together again, the non-alien aliens, and the bruises on her leg. How did working together on Whisper help you embark on a new

Police say no foul play suspected after the actor was discovered in his room at a hotel in Vancouver

Canadian actor Cory Monteith, heart throb of Fox's musical-comedy television series Glee, has been found dead at a hotel in Vancouver, Canada, police said.

There were no signs of foul play, they said, and the cause of death was not immediately apparent.

Paramedics responding to an emergency call found Monteith, 31, dead at the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel in the city centre, Vancouver Police Department acting chief Doug LePard told a news conference.

Doctor Who Review: A Song in Trenzalore

  • TVfanatic
Well, they sure tricked us all with the title of this episode, didn't they?

We didn't learn "The Name of the Doctor," but with the return of the much beloved River Song, she was able to use it to open a secret passage to his tomb to save the lives of his friends. We finally learned the fate of River and a bit more information on The Impossible Girl, Clara Oswald. Let's dive into The Doctor's life path, shall we?

It was such a fun catch how they imported Clara into scenes featuring The Doctors of yore. They didn't return, per se, but were included in the episode in a way that allowed an explanation as to why Clara was the Impossible Girl. Exactly what an Impossible Girl is, we don't know, but my supposition is she's been the silent companion of every Doctor all along.

"The Carrie Diaries" Episode 110: Seventeen Candles

"We are going to have so many babies."

If you need a primer on the characters..

This will be a mini-cap, focusing primarily on gay-in-training Walt.

Walt and Maggie decide to make amends, just in time for Carrie's 17th birthday. Maggie is ready to grovel, but Walt admits that it wasn't all her fault. He couldn't love her the way she deserves to be loved, which should be a huge rainbow flag for Maggie, but this is 1985, and the Ask J.T. column is still a few decades away, so how's a girl to know how to interpret gay signals?

Carrie wants to throw herself a birthday party, but Larissa wants her to work the Interview party for the hot new book Less Than Zero, and its future Twitter Asshat author the same night. When Plus One Sebastian has to back out (his estranged mother wants to see him), Carrie

From Horror to ‘Halo’: An Interview with Stewart Hendler
Halo is not a game that we would normally cover at FEARnet, but with the upcoming release of the Machinima web series Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn, we thought we’d make an exception due to the involvement of Stewart Hendler, the director behind movies like Sorority Row and Whisper. Hendler is giving a darker take on the Halo mythology in the prequel web series, delivering his take on both genres. We got to chat with him recently regarding Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn, gaming, and his plans for the future.

In your own words, describe Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn.

Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn is basically about a group of young in training to fight…an insurrection of humans who are unexpectedly attacked by an alien race that they didn’t even know existed, and their battle to survive and escape their school with the aid of one

Hammer Films To Produce Fresh Take On Jekyll & Hyde

The cinematic treatment of Robert Louis Stevenson’s Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde has been varied. Fredric March’s benchmark portrayal of the character in 1931 remains the high water mark, though Spencer Tracy has tried his hand at it and the less said about 1995′s Dr Jekyll & Ms Hyde the better. The main point here is that it has been a really long time since the story was told well on the big screen. Cameos for Jekyll & Hyde in Lxg and Van Helsing did what is a fascinating and complex character scant justice and so Hammer Films enter the fray.

Off the back of Let Me In, The Resident, Wakewood and The Woman In Black, Hammer are now eying a remake of the Jekyll & Hyde tale, currently working with the title “Wake”. Such an unarresting title seems an odd choice, given how well known the name Jekyll is, but to each their own.
