• Lifetime Goes to Series with Romantic, Dark “DAMIEN”

    We are so fascinated with the adolescences and young adulthood of our iconic killers. As more narratives demand and present the origins of heroes, villains and everything in between, television adaptations use such as the basis for prequels, sequels and new iterations of classic characters. Similar to BATES MOTEL and the currently developing LEATHERFACE, Lifetime aims to explore the life of Damien Thorn, struggling with his role as Antichrist in a THE OMEN-based series set to premiere in 2015.

  • Lovering to Direct Elisa Lam-inspired “THE BRINGING”

    By now you’ve seen the Elisa Lam video. A young woman, who’d soon turn up dead is caught in a void of dread in the Cecil Hotel in Los Angeles, a place already known for brushes with infamous activity (like that of Richard Ramirez and Vienna Strangler Jack Unterweger).

  • Watch the First Five Minutes of Argentinian Neo-Giallo, “SONNO PROFONDO (DEEP SLEEP)”

    Contemporary giallo is a fascinating, often exhilarating thing.

Well, now it’s on Fango. Thanks Foo Fighters!

  • Kevin Smith, Johnny Depp and Their Daughters Team for “YOGA HOSERS”

    Last month, filmmaker Kevin Smith (CLERKS, CHASING AMY) announced his intent to spin off the upcoming body horror TUSK (pictured) into a film entitled YOGA HOSERS, will little explication on what the latter film might be. Announced today as teamup between Smith and immeasurably famous actor Johnny Depp, it seems YOGA HOSERS is a supernatural action horror comedy of sorts, with a robust cast and a teenaged mindset.
