    Kevin Smith’s “TUSK” To Get Wide Release from A24

    Are you ready for Kevin Smith’s second (and very well last) foray into fright films? You very well may! His body horror, TUSK, has been streaming along since its unlikely conception on his podcast back in June of this year. However, the film, unable to make the intended premiere at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival due to two extra days of necessary shooting, has thusly been acquired by A24 Films for a wide release in the third quarter of 2014. A24, which gave wide releases this year to SPRING BREAKERS and THE BLING RING, adds TUSK to an already genre-friendly 2014 slate, including the Jake Gyllenhaal-starring ENEMY and the Scarlett Johansson alien film UNDER THE SKIN.

    Caesar & Co. intimidate in “DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES” Posters

    At San Diego Comic-Con 2013, the first teaser footage from the Matt Reeves-directed sequel DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES premiered. It was atmospheric and often beautiful in setting up the future ape-ravaged world this new film exists in, and ended on an image (above) almost exactly like the new character posters. It was a full, intimidating look at Caesar and an army of apes, ready for war. At the time, I referred to it as stark, tough and very thrilling. It continues to be so, and it seems 20th Century Fox is anchoring their promotion for the film in it.

    The ultimate terror for any, even half-decent, parent is the unthinkable—yet perfectly feasible—concept of losing their child. That primal fear is even more profound in a mother, she who miraculously grows this tiny person inside her and whose connection to her charge is one of the most powerful bonds known.

    TV TERRORS Double Feature: “THE INITIATION OF SARAH” & “ARE YOU IN THE HOUSE ALONE?” (DVD Review)

    I don’t think it’s necessarily true that in order to fully appreciate the charms of the 1970’s TV horror movie, you had to in fact come of age during the 1970’s, but there’s no doubt it helps. This writer was birthed in 1974 and was exposed to such fare as far back as I’d had a memory. And of course, by the time I was completely cognoscente of pop culture in the dawn of the 1980’s, most of the vintage made-for-television terror shows would be re-run ad nauseum in both prime time and – even better – late, late at night or in the wee hours of the AM. They were everywhere and, although pedestrian when stacked up against their theatrical counterparts, there was a certain je ne sais quoi that gave them a kind of power.
