Comcast/Xfinity Confirming “American Horror Story ?6” Theme?

Thu, 09/08/2016 - 13:03

FX has begun airing promos for “American Horror Story ?6” during their regularly programming, which prompted me to skim ahead to next Wednesday’s schedule to set the series to record.

I was surprised to see that on Comcast and Xfinity’s guide here in Chicago the series is listed under the title “American Horror Story: The Mist”, with the debut episode’s title being Chapter 1.

This firms up our story from Sep.1 when TV Guide had listed the series with the same title.

Assuming this is the actual title, I’m not exactly sure why “The Mist” would be some sort of secret, nor how it even implies what to expect on this season. If anything, it’s feeling more and more like a cheap gimmick to keep us talking about it (look at that, it worked).

The strangest aspect of the title, however, is that Spike TV and Dimension Films are currently in production on a new series also titled “The Mist”, adapted from the Stephen King story. This truly and really would suck for them as (in my opinion) the marketing confusion would be pretty prevalent.

FX CEO John Landgraf explained that when it comes to the teasers, “One is accurate; all the rest are misdirect.” He continued, “We decided, Ryan [Murphy] and I and [marketing president] Stephanie Gibbons, that it would be really fun this year…to keep it a mystery. There is a theme and a setting and a place and time, but we’re not going to reveal it,” per IndieWire.

Below is the promo that FX released that bears the same title, which means I guess we’ll be seeing some kind of railroad demon? Could this season be some kind of horror Western?!

Sarah Paulson joins Lady Gaga, Kathy Bates, Cuba Gooding Jr., and Romika Annabell Osorio. We’re still waiting to hear if Angela Bassett, Denis O’Hare, Matt Bomer, Wes Bentley, Cheyenne Jackson or Finn Wittrock will return.

9 Hilarious Moments from Season 1 of “Scream Queens”!

Thu, 09/08/2016 - 13:01

Fox’s slasher parody Scream Queens was one of the most controversial shows to premiere last year. Marketed as a horror series, many viewers were surprised to find out that it was actually a parody in the vein of films like Airplane! or even Scary Movie. It premiered well below expectations and gradually lost viewers as the season went on (even hitting a 1.98 in Nielsen ratings at one point). Lucky for fans, Fox decided to renew the show for a second season, which premieres on September 20th. To celebrate the occasion, we decided to look at some of the first season’s funniest moments. 

1. When Ms. Bean Doesn’t Know How to “Hit It”

The highlight of the pilot episode was an extremely brief moment in which Chanel Oberlin (Emma Roberts) is ordering her housekeeper Ms. Bean (Jan Hoag), whom she affectionately calls “White Mammy,” around town. Upon leaving the local coffee shop, Chanel tells Ms. Bean to hit it. Poor Ms. Bean doesn’t fully grasp the concept and Chanel’s reaction is priceless.

2. Chanel-‘o-ween

In a rather obvious spoof of Taylor Swifts very real “Swiftmas” (though not nearly as sweet), Chanel would send grotesque gifts to all of her precious donkeys. Sure, it’s a little on the nose, but the image of her driving around in that little pink car is one of the funniest visuals the series did all season.

3. Where are the Dinosaurs?

Ariana Grande’s appearance on Scream Queens was a much-hyped aspect of the series prior to its release, so it came as quite a shock when her Chanel #2 died in the pilot (albeit in a hilarious, Airplane!-style fashion). That wouldn’t be her best moment though. No, her best moment would come from a dream Chanel had in which she spoke to #2’s ghost, and they both lamented the lack of dinosaurs in Hell.

4. Cafeteria Feminism

Sometimes Ryam Murphy’s social and political commentary can be a little heavy-handed, so it was refreshing to see feminism handled in such hilarious fashion during a cafeteria fight on Scream Queens. The sequence skewers critics of feminism and feminists themselves in the way the Chanel’s respond to the male chauvinistic remarks of men, making Scream Queens an equal opportunity satire.

5. Zayday Williams Is Totally the Killer

There’s a running gag throughout the whole first season of Scream Queens in which security guard Denise Hemphill (Niecy Nash) accuses Zayday Williams (Keke Palmer) of being the killer. It probably happens at least once an episode. The whole bit is hilarious in general, but never so much as when Chanel #5 (Abigail Breslin) deduces that Zayday is the killer because her name is an anagram for “I May Slay Liz Daw.” Who is Liz Daw? I don’t know, but clearly Zayday is contemplating slaying her!

6. Dean Munsch’s Afternoon Reading Session

Jamie Lee Curtis was one of the MVPs of Scream Queens not only because she is one of the greatest scream queens of all time, but because she was able to play so radically against type in the role of Dean Cathy Munsch. Munsch is a sociopathic, selfish awful person. She’s also a total hoot! One of her funniest moments came from the Thanksgiving episode in which Chanel #3 (Billie Lourd) explains how she knows Munsch is a murderer: she saw her reading a Playgirl magazine whilst eating a bologna sandwich, despite supposedly being allergic to bologna. The visual of Curtis reading that Playgirl is too weird to not be funny, and serves as one of the most iconic images Scream Queens ever delivered.

7. Christmas Shopping

What kind of monster would get into stores before they opened the morning of Black Friday and buy all the VR headsets in plain view of the general public? Chanel Oberlin, that’s who. Watching her stack boxes of VR headsets while smiling at the shoppers outside is one of the most demented and hysterical things the character has ever done, and that’s saying something.

8. In Bed With a Goat

It was difficult to pick just one moment from Chad Radwell, the dopey frat boy with a heart of gold (sort of). The best moment had to come in the form of him literally sleeping with a goat. You see, Chad is lactose intolerant, so he keeps a baby goat and cuddles with it at night and rubs its belly so that it will produce more milk for him to drink (since goat milk is lactose milk). It doesn’t make a lot of sense, but it sure is funny.

9. Basically Everything Niecy Nash Says or Does

You know how I stated that Jamie Lee Curtis was one of the MVPs of Scream Queens? Well Niecy Nash was the MVP of Scream Queens‘s first season. There wasn’t a single thing that came out of this woman’s mouth that didn’t inspire immediate guffaws so I’m just going to lump every scene of hers into this entry. Excuse the music in the below series of clips though. It really ruins the whole experience of watching Nash do her thing.

What were your favorite moments from the first season of Scream Queens? Let us know in the comments below!

Another ‘Ouija’ Trailer to Say “Yes” to

Thu, 09/08/2016 - 12:48

As I can continue to point out, I seriously cannot believe how cool Ouija: Origin of Evil looks, although I am a huge fan of director Mike Flanagan (Absentia, Oculus, Hush).

The initial trailer was already brimming with insanity, but this lengthy new trailer has even more madness that’s at least guaranteeing the movie is going to be balls-to-the-wall crazy.

Ouija also appears to take a lot of inspiration from James Wan’s movies like The Conjuring and Insidious, but also gives nods to classics such as The Exorcist.

CGI can be killer, but in a film about a haunted Ouija board I think it’s fair game, especially if the filmmakers can pull it off without it feeling cheesy.

The sequel takes place in 1965 Los Angeles where a widowed mother and her two daughters add a new stunt to bolster their séance scam business and unwittingly invite authentic evil into their home. The youngest daughter is overtaken by the merciless spirit, forcing this small family to confront unthinkable fears to save her and send her possessor back to the other side.

Elizabeth Reaser, Annalise Basso, Lulu Wilson and Henry Thomas star.

Wojciech Golczewski Sends “Transmission 1” (Premiere)

Thu, 09/08/2016 - 12:00

Two weeks ago, we premiered a track from musician Wojciech Golczewski‘s solo album Reality Check, which came out via Death Waltz Originals. However, if you think that means the Polish composer is going to rest on his laurels then you’re dead wrong. In fact, tomorrow sees the release of his second solo album this year in the form of End of Transmission and we’re here to give you a taste of it with the track “Transmission 1”!

He explains, “’End of Transmission’ is about minimal approach and maximum effect of clean sound travelling through space. It’s made entirely with only Minimoog and VSTi Emulator software. I tried not to overcomplicate things although it somehow feels cinematic not unlike my film scores.

Golczewski is the composer of such horror films as Late Phases, Beyond the Gates, City State, and We Are Still Here.

End of Transmission comes out digitally tomorrow via Lakeshore Records and on cassette and vinyl via Data Airlines later this Fall.

Beyond Fest Boasts Lineup Including ‘Headshot’, ‘Bad Batch’ and ‘Phantasm Ravager’!

Thu, 09/08/2016 - 12:00

Beyond Fest, the highest attended genre film festival in the US, is excited to announce its full slate of 2016 programming featuring 27 events and 23 West Coast premieres of mind-bending movie madness. Presented by Shudder, Beyond Fest returns to Hollywood’s famed Egyptian Theatre for 12 days of movies, music and mayhem spanning Friday, September 30th – Tuesday, October 11th to generate funds for co-presenter, the nonprofit American Cinematheque.

With a diverse slate that includes films from all corners of the globe Beyond Fest is proud to open with movie icon Paul Schrader presenting his new feature DOG EAT DOG and a special 40th anniversary screening of TAXI DRIVER. Other hotly-anticipated titles making their West Coast bows include the hyper-explosive coming-of-age cannibal drama RAW, Ana Lily Amipour’s much-anticipated follow up to her alt-cult debut, A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE, the stunning, sonic desert trip THE BAD BATCH, the terrifying adaptation of M.R Carey’s post-apocalyptic horror THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS, and the Mo Brothers’ outrageously hyper-violent action epic, HEADSHOT.

“We really wanted to focus on blending the iconic with the emerging this year” said Beyond Fest Co-Founder, Christian Parkes. “To champion brilliantly provocative films like Julia Ducourna’s RAW and Ana Lily Amipour’s THE BAD BATCH whilst celebrating established heroes like Paul Schrader and Kurt Russell is a primary reason for Beyond Fest’s existence.”

The most beloved genre films are highlighted with four event screenings over the course of this year’s festival. The legend himself Kurt Russell takes center stage with James Gunn moderating for a very special 30th anniversary screening of BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA projected on glorious 35mm. The “ultimate trip” receives the ultimate treatment as Stanley Kubrick’s existential epic 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY screens in 70mm with a 2001-scored Laserium cosmic laser concert and Q&A featuring the film’s two astronaut leads, Keir Dullea and Gary Lockwood. The Tall Man returns with J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot meticulous restoration of Don Coscarelli’s cult classic PHANTASM: REMASTERED. Coscarelli will be joined with members of the original cast before the West Coast premiere of the series’ final entry PHANTASM RAVAGER. In keeping with the restoration theme, producer Richard P. Rubenstein will be on hand to present the U.S. Premiere of DAWN OF THE DEAD 3-D. Romero’s cult nightmare has never looked better and will be the first laser 3-D feature projected at the famed Egyptian Theatre.

Once again, music features prominently with two seismic re scores taking center stage. Furiously blurring the lines between music, film and art, Beyond Fest welcomes a new disciple and an old friend with two seismic re scores. Director, producer, actor, Wu Tang Clan founder and the all-together mythic RZA enters the fray with a roundhouse kick for his epic takedown of a martial arts masterpiece. 18 months in the making, RZA: LIVE FROM THE 36th CHAMBER OF SHAOLIN is a mammoth live re scoring of Lau Kar-leung’s Shaw Brothers classic featuring over 40+ tracks culled from RZA’s monumental catalog. Instrumental tracks, beats, samples and vocal tracks amplify the narrative and Gordon Liu’s revelatory performance.

Returning to Los Angeles is legendary composer Fabio Frizzi and his seven-piece orchestra to perform THE BEYOND: COMPOSER’S CUT. This bold, new take on Lucio Fulci’s gothic masterpiece features a live re score featuring a completely new composition and will play with all original dialog intact. THE BEYOND: COMPOSER’S CUT will be accompanied by an uncut 35mm screening of GATES OF HELL and a very special secret screening with surprise guests.

Celebrating LA filmmaking remains a priority for Beyond Fest with Ti West receiving this year’s ‘LA Spotlight’ for his transformative western, IN A VALLEY OF VIOLENCE. Beyond Fest alumni West will be joined by cast members Karen Gillan, Taissa Farmiga, Toby Huss, James Ransone, and the film’s four-legged star, Jumpy. LA also represents en masse with a midnight blast of animated anarchy as Chris Prynoski’s NERDLAND also gets its LA premiere. The first feature from Prynoski’s Titmouse Animation Studios is a wild descent into LA’s soul-destroying entertainment industry and will feature director Prynoski, writer Andrew Kevin Walker, actor Patton Oswalt, plus others in attendance.

Beyond Fest welcomes the return of genre streaming platform Shudder as its Presenting Sponsor, a partnership that provides 13 screenings (9 West Coast premieres) absolutely free to film fans. Every night, the 90-seat ‘Shudder Theatre’ will feature a brand new film selected from across the world including

Emile Hirsch’s super creepy THE AUTOPSY OF JANE DOE, Japanese scare-fest SADAKO VS KAYAKO, Morgan Spurlock’s stomach-churning doc RATS, the revelatory Kubrick doc S IS FOR STANLEY, the hands down craziest film of the year THE DWARVES MUST BE CRAZY and two Cinematic Void double bills featuring a premiere screening of Arrow’s 4K restoration of Romero’s THE CRAZIES paired with MARTIN on 16mm and an American Genre Film Archive fundraiser featuring a 35mm monster mash up of NEON MANIACS and STREET TRASH.

If that wasn’t enough, virtual reality engulfs Beyond Fest for the first time with Dark Corner Studios showcasing three of their most terrifying experiences. Led by wunder-director Guy Shelmerdine, guests will be able to watch his breakout VR horror smash CATATONIC, in addition to his new film MULE and Justin Denton’s BURLAP. The Egyptian Theatre will be housing Dark Corner in the hidden reaches of its 90 year old architecture.

Letters From The Fire Challenge Your “Perfect Life” (Exclusive)

Thu, 09/08/2016 - 12:00

Just over a week ago, we had San Francisco hard rockers Letters From The Fire featured on the site with their 10 Horror Movies to Watch in a Group. The post not only provided a collection of very solid movies to watch with a group of your pals but it also gave you a chance to meet the band, whose new album Worth the Pain comes out tomorrow via Sand Hill Records.

To give you a taste of what’s to come on that album, we’ve got the exclusive lyric video premiere for their anthemic song “Perfect Life”, which you can hear below.

Frontwoman Alexa Kabazie explains the song to BD:

We are told by society that a ‘perfect life’ consists of going to school, getting a desk job, buying a house, paying taxes, and essentially working your entire life away chasing after some idealized illusion of success. This song basically says, ‘Fuck that!’ It’s about being done with making yourself miserable, chasing after someone else’s version of a ‘perfect life.’

You can pre-order Worth the Pain via iTunes.

TV Guide Reveals “American Horror Story ?6” Theme?

Thu, 09/01/2016 - 16:44

We’ve been waiting patiently for an official theme for the sixth season of FX’s “American Horror Story” for what seems like months. The past few weeks have brought one teaser after another (you can find them via our “American Horror Story” tag), each new promo having seemingly nothing to do with the previous one.

FX CEO John Landgraf explained that when it comes to the teasers, “One is accurate; all the rest are misdirect.” He continued, “We decided, Ryan [Murphy] and I and [marketing president] Stephanie Gibbons, that it would be really fun this year…to keep it a mystery. There is a theme and a setting and a place and time, but we’re not going to reveal it,” per IndieWire.

In the latest issue of TV Guide, the title for the sixth season may very well have been revealed as the schedule shows “American Horror Story: The Mist“. Below is the promo that FX released that bears the same title, which means I guess we’ll be seeing some kind of railroad demon? If they’re going for a horror western, I’m 100% in!

We’ll be doing some digging to see if we can get to the bottom of this.

AHS titled revealed in TV Guide? This is in their schedule in the latest issue.

The “Tremors” TV Series is Moving to Amazon

The last we heard about a “Tremors” TV show, it was late Spring when original movie star Kevin Bacon said that he’s working on a 10-episode series. Since then, there hasn’t really been much to report on.

However, a recent interview with Bacon over at Collider explains that the series is still moving ahead, it’s just now going to be done with Amazon.

I have another show that’s in development at Amazon, which is a Tremors TV series. To me, it’s a great place to be. I’m thrilled to be at Amazon,” the actor stated.

When talking about what the series would be about, Bacon told the site:

It’s great. It’s a super cool idea. They went and made a bunch of sequels to the movie. I want to put those aside because, first of all, I wasn’t in them. But what I was really interested in was taking this guy and, 25 years later, seeing what happened to him, to his dreams, and to his life. Andrew Miller, who’s writing the script, came up with this really, really interesting take on it, and I think it could be a lot of fun.

When asked why he wants to return to the series, as he once considered it to be a low-point in his career, Bacon explained:

did become a real classic. It was also at a time when the VHS was exploding. Movies took on a life of their own. The last thing you wanted, in that point in our industry, was to have a movie go straight to VHS. Tremors did not perform at the box office, but it did great on VHS. When I came up with the idea and reached out to Blumhouse about looking at it again, I looked at the movie, and I don’t look at my movies, at all. I went back and put it up on my screen at home and went, “Wow, this is a really good movie!” I just didn’t get it when I was there and in it. I wrote it off ‘cause it wasn’t a hit, and I really needed one. But, I think it’s a really good movie. It’s unusual and it’s funny. Doing funny scary is something that is rarely good and rarely works, and it’s also something that’s incredibly hard to market. I think that was part of the problem. Funny scary is tough, unless you’re ‘Snakes on a Plane’.

Personally, I’m really excited to see the return of “Valentine McKee”! Hopefully there’s a way to get Fred Ward to reprise “Earl Bass”, even if just for a cameo. I feel like that would be the cherry on top of this graboid sundae!

[FrightFest Review] ‘Realive’ is a Moving Sci-Fi Love Story

Thu, 09/01/2016 - 15:49

Realive was probably the least FrightFest-y film I saw at this year’s festival, and also one of the most affecting.

Marc (Tom Hughes) is a diagnosed with a terminal illness as a young man, and during his final year of life decides to take a punt on cryogenic freezing. Fast forward to 2084 and science has advanced to the point where the process of resurrection may actually be possible, and Marc is selected as the subject. But, adjusting to his new life isn’t easy, and Marc starts to reminisce on the time he spent with his childhood sweetheart, Naomi (“Game of Thrones’” Oona Chaplin).

This begins the development of two distinct narrative and thematic strands: the first, a modern retelling of the Frankenstein myth, and the second, a meditation on love and time. The first is interesting, and at times subversive, but offers little you won’t have seen discussed before: instead, it’s the second that really stands out.

I was deeply moved by the tale of Marc and Naomi’s ill-fated romance. Most of this relationship line comes in the form of increasingly integral, and always engaging, flashbacks. One piece of technology in this new world is the “Mind Writer”, which is worn like a small virtual reality headset and allows the user to view, and augment, memories. It’s an interesting idea that acts as a vehicle for the flashbacks, but the device itself is also mined for some interesting discussion: people get addicted to their Mind Writer, and spend more time reliving old memories than making new ones.

This is just one aspect of the future writer-director Mateo Gil (Blackthorn) has thoughtfully created. His semi-utopia is all glass and clinical whites, but the most significant changes are in culture and ideology, as opposed to technology. Marc’s nurse, Elizabeth (Charlotte Le Bon), informs him very matter-of-factly that the concept of romance has all but fallen by the wayside, in favour of practical sex parties. All this makes Marc’s longing seem almost nostalgic.

The architecture, the smart integration of visual effects and the talkie, low-key approach to science fiction gives the film an Ex Machina vibe, but it never quite reaches those heights. However, as with Ex Machina, I was reminded of the TV show “Black Mirror” and wondered whether a slimmed down version of this story may have been more potent. The film finds its groove when dealing with Marc and Naomi’s relationship, and I could have done without some of the more mundane Frankenstein talk as a result.

Hughes and Chaplin’s charm also helps to sell their relationship. Hughes is an enigmatic lead and I find him to be a really smooth screen presence. Likewise, the strong design work and the neat effects shots, as well as the score by composer Lucas Vidal (Fast & Furious 6), add a classy streak to this minimally budgeted sci-fi tale.

Realive is a clinical new-Frankenstein tale on the surface, but the moving central romance provides the film’s beating heart.

IBM’s A.I. Has Created a Nightmarish Trailer for ‘Morgan’!

Thu, 09/01/2016 - 14:33

From director Luke Scott and executive producer Ridley Scott, 20th Century Fox’s Morgan opens in theaters tomorrow. It’s a high-tech genre thriller that appears to be centered around some sort of hybrid that escapes an experimental facility.

In a really exciting tie-in, scientists at IBM Research have collaborated with Fox to create the first-ever cognitive movie trailer for the movie Morgan.

It’s incredibly interesting to see how an A.I. interprets footage, while the trailer itself is beyond frightening. I wonder if the A.I. also chose the score, and if so, Skynet is coming.

Following the trailer is an interesting featurette on the process, which is highlighted by the following:

Utilizing experimental Watson APIs and machine learning techniques, the IBM Research system analyzed hundreds of horror/thriller movie trailers. After learning what keeps audiences on the edge of their seats, the AI system suggested the top 10 best candidate moments for a trailer from the movie ‘Morgan’, which an IBM filmmaker then edited and arranged together.

Kate Mara plays a corporate troubleshooter who is sent to a remote, top-secret location, where she is to investigate and evaluate a terrifying accident. She learns the event was triggered by a seemingly innocent “human,” who presents a mystery of both infinite promise and incalculable danger.

Anya Taylor-Joy, Toby Jones, Rose Leslie, Boyd Holbrook, Michelle Yeoh, Jennifer Jason Leigh, and Paul Giamatti also star.

Artist Anthony Petrie Has Made the Coolest ‘Predator’ Poster Ever

Thu, 09/01/2016 - 14:10

Look, I realize that the headline seems over the top and possibly even rather “clickbait-y”. However, I assure you that once you read through this post then you’ll fully understand why I honestly believe the statement to be true. Alright, let’s do this.

Anthony Petrie is an artist who has been working for over a decade and has teamed up with some of the biggest names in the industry. He’s designed movie posters, branding, apparel, and more. Ever pushing the boundaries, in 2015 he created a gallery of pieces called chART1, which made nautical maps out of movies and other pop culture properties. For example, just look at his Jaws-themed poster, which shows Amity Island as part of Bruce the Shark. It’s pretty incredible but Petrie knew that he could do better. After all, what kind of artist doesn’t find joy in challenging themselves to do something a bit more grand and exciting?

Enter Petrie’s poster for John McTiernan’s classic 1987 sci-fi action film Predator, which he will be debuting at chART2 when it opens September 3rd at Gallery 1988 West in Los Angeles, CA. The poster is printed on thermochromic, heat-reactive ink, according to io9, which means that it actually changes colors when you put your hand on it and warm it up! It’s just like the heat vision from the movie!

Furthermore, supposedly the Predator on the poster will disappear once heat is applied. Seriously, how freaking cool is that?!

Petrie will be showcasing other posters that utilize pop culture icons as the foundation for the maps. For example, check out this one of Godzilla.

Below are pictures and video of the poster.

VIDEO PROOF! @zombiebacons changing the game…
