    “GRAVITY” (TIFF Movie Review)

    Based on the broadest definition of genre, Alfonso Cuarón’s astounding new film GRAVITY doesn’t cleanly qualify as horror. It is however guaranteed to be one of the most terrifying viewing experiences of the year, so it seems silly not to acknowledge it. After disappearing from filmmaking for seven years following the technically ambitious and thematically complex CHILDREN OF MEN, Cuarón has returned with a movie quite simply unlike anything else. As a depiction of space travel, the realism and immersion of GRAVITY is unparalleled; the story then uses that realism to make the space environment feel more unforgiving and chilling than ever before.

    “INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 2” (Movie Review)

    The challenge involved in making a direct horror sequel like INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 2 is that it’s harder to mystify and scare both audiences and the characters the second time around. Fortunately, returning director James Wan and screenwriter Leigh Whannell have partially changed the source of the terror for CHAPTER 2, though it takes the film a little while to get there.

    Q&A: Lin Shaye on “INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 2”

    Horror has always been a safe haven for character actors, offering a showcase for their range and presence while providing them the type of roles they might not be able to inhabit in other types of movies. And while some actors view the genre with discontent, others welcome fear fare with open arms, embracing their roles with a dedication even beyond what the material entails. One of these is Lin Shaye, a genre veteran with such films under her belt as A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET, CRITTERS and THE HIDDEN, who received a new level of visibility with her prominent role in INSIDIOUS and returns tomorrow in INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 2.

    Q&A: Leigh Whannell on Death, the Elderly and “INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 2″

    INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 2 is a surprising film. Less the slow build scare-a-thon of the first (and even James Wan’s summer hit THE CONJURING), this film is an aggressive whirlwind that’s no longer approaching The Further with trepidation, but charging through and searching for its weirdest bits. Of course, in what’s become something of a recurring motif in the work of Wan and writer Leigh Whannell, it’s presided over by opposing forces, and guided by sage elderly characters. In a conversation that’s largely focused on death and my budding theory that Wan & Whannell find the elderly to be last vestiges of superstition, the writer tells FANGORIA of the film, their undervalued DEAD SILENCE and his preoccupation with our eventual end.

    “DARK TOUCH” Trailer: The year’s unsettling, other telekinetic tale

    It seems crude to put it in such general, comparative terms, but I do suspect that DARK TOUCH will be the better rendition of “Carrie” we see this year. It’s an unapologetic, dark Ireland-set film that re-envisions fundamentals of that teenaged, oncoming womanhood tale (telekinetic girl lashing out) and warps it to a more unsettling place. While hope is held for Kimberly Peirce’s handling of the Stephen King novel, will the re-adaptation have the interest in being so stark and prodding as DARK TOUCH?
