After all, this is a show that constructs a climactic scene in which a woman walks between two rows of gypsies in a candlelit East L.A. mansion as the offended parties spit on her. And that’s just the start of her punishment for breaking the gypsy code. What comes next is enough to make even hardened TV viewers raise an eyebrow.
Yet “Shut Eye” blends a bit too much of the familiar with its crazy. Primarily tracking a veteran tarot card reader heading
“Tracers follows a New York City bicycle messenger, Cam (Lautner) who is the hottest thing on two wheels, but is in debt to an organized crime gang.

Even though I enjoy parkour, Lautner just kills the whole thing for me, and it's hard to take seriously. The film was directed by Daniel Benmayor (The Manhunt) and had an army of screenwriters that included Leslie Bohem, Matt Johnson,

Some films aren’t served very well by their titles. A name is just a name, but then again, first impressions can seal the deal. I didn’t see The Horror Show until about a week ago. My cursor has been looming over it in my Netfix queue for quite some time. The title is so ambiguous, that it could be anything. The key word is anything, and I will see anything with Lance Henriksen in it. He’s become the stuff of legends. He’s one of the few character actors that have

The Nightmare on Elm Street franchise has nine films spread across three timelines (granted, two of those timelines only feature one film each). The original timeline started with the first film and ends for now with Freddy vs Jason (skipping New Nightmare in the process). However, if one wanted to watch the canon of that timeline, with all the mythology and intrigue intact, one would only have to watch the original and the 3rd, 4th, and 5th, sequels.
The first film set up the rules of the universe. Freddy can control your dreams and what happens in those dreams have real world consequences. If he kills you while you sleep, you die. It also established that items from the dream world can be brought into the real world and that Freddy can
The deal was announced at the Toronto Film Festival and is the second for four-month-old Saban Films, which launched just before the Cannes Film Festival and acquired Tommy Lee Jones’ “The Homesman” as its first movie.
“Tracers” reunited Lautner with “Twilight” producers Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey of Temple Hill Entertainment, who are producing with D. Scott Lumpkin.
Lautner plays a New York City bicycle messenger in debt to an organized crime gang. He’s lured into the world of parkour after crashing his bike into a sexy stranger (Avgeropoulos).
The film is directed by Daniel Benmayor (“Bruc”) and written by Leslie Bohem, Matt Johnson, Kevin Lund and T.J. Scott.
Bill Bromiley and Ness Saban negotiated on behalf of Saban Films and Wme Global on behalf of the producers.
Tracers reteams Lautner with Twilight producers Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey of Temple Hill Entertainment who are producing alongside D. Scott Lumpkin.
The fast-paced action thriller follows New York City bicycle messenger, Cam (Lautner) who is the hottest thing on two wheels, but is in debt to an organized crime gang. When he crashes his bike into a sexy stranger, Nikki (Avgeropoulos), Cam is immediately seduced by her and the thrill of the high-stakes world of parkour.
Saban President Bill Bromiley had this to say in a statement.
"We were immediately drawn to Tracers because it amplifies and expands on action storytelling and captivates the thrill seeker in all of us.
If there was one genre that spawned countless knock-offs (some better than the films they were imitating, others not so much) it was the slasher film. Even some films that were touted as the greats amongst the sub-genre would be still hidden in the shadows of the films they were emulating. There’s a waterfall effect to these films that start with Psycho and fall through Black Christmas onto Friday the 13th. But within the sub-genre, a splintering could be found as well, creating a mutated family hierarchy of slasherdom. Every slasher film had to find some sort of way of setting itself apart from the other, by creating some sort of different villain who was unstoppable and creative in ways that kept bodies in seats.
Starring: Lance Henriksen, Brion James, Rita Taggart
Writers: Leslie Bohem, Alan Smithee (really Allyn Warner)
Directors: James Isaac, David Blyth (released from duty)
Synopsis (Scream Factory):
116 people are dead at the hands of Max Jenke and his trusty meat cleaver. Now, justice is about to be served as Jenke is sentenced to the electric chair. But from the first high-voltage blast, it becomes clear that Max is no ordinary serial killer. With a blood-chilling laugh from the depths of hell, Max enters our world, transformed into a supernatural force by the high-voltage blast of electricity. Max vows revenge on the cop who captured him. Well-aware of the maniacal killer’s passion to destroy, Detective Lucas McCarthy can only begin to imagine the horror that awaits him and his family.
I wasn’t planning on starting this review out as a Shocker Vs The Horror Show commentary,
Despite being a mundane movie, A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master was not only the highest grossing film of the series (and would remain that way until Freddy vs. Jason) but it was also the biggest earner for the slasher genre in the 80s. With the bucks continuing to roll in and Freddy's popularity growing stronger by the day, New Line Cinemas once again rushed The Bastard Son of 100 Maniacs into production which would see Freddy reborn - literally.
Based off an idea by New Line and Nightmare on Elm Street veteran Rachal Talalay (who was pregnant at the time) and directed by Brit Stephen Hopkins, A Nightmare on Elm Street: The Dream Child had an 8- week production -
Produced by Wayfare Entertainment and Company Films, Passengers was developed by Stephen Hamel and Keanu Reeves at their production house Company Films. Hamel will produce the film with Wayfare’s CEO Ben Browning. Start Media’s Michael Maher and Lynwood Spinks will executive produce. Set for a January 2014 start date, Alex Walton will launch the international sales for the film at the upcoming Cannes Film Market. The project was acquired for the company by Tobin Armbrust, President of Worldwide Production & Acquisitions.
Written by Jon Spaihts (Prometheus), the story revolves around a spacecraft transporting human cargo to
What starts out as a pleasingly old-fashioned romance eventually spirals into realms so far off the planet it would make Professor Brian Cox blow a fuse. Josh Duhamel smiles his way through the chaos as a nice guy widower living in a sleepy coastal town whose eyes brighten at the sight of a new arrival - even though she's played by the curiously charmless Julianne Hough.
The young starlet from Rock of Ages and Footloose has a bit of a hard edge, which is presumably why director Lasse Hallström (Chocolat) was drawn to her for the part of Katie. She blows into town like a storm after a briefly glimpsed scuffle in Boston that leaves her clothes stained with blood. At first, the sunnier climes of North Carolina
Credit for this probably goes to director Lasse Hallström (“Chocolat,” “Casanova”) who knows a thing about romantic canoodling, and the earnest cast that includes Julianne Hough and Josh Duhamel. Based on a novel by Nicholas Sparks (“The Notebook”), the story itself has an air of well established mystery, which adds some depth to the characters that make them more interesting. Hallstrom also adds some touches that are unexpected, with a nod toward Hitchcock. Also Hough and Duhamel’s characters are seeking some sort of redemption, which makes a love story more motivated and savory.
“Safe Haven,” which opens on Feb. 14, 2013 and is rated “PG-13,” also stars Cobie Smulders, Irene Ziegler, David Lyons, Juan Piedrahita, Red West, Noah Lomax, Mimi Kirkland, Robin Mullins, Jasper Grey and Tora Hallstrom from “Dear John” director Lasse Hallström and writers Leslie Bohem and Dana Stevens based on the novel by “The Notebook” author Nicholas Sparks.

“Safe Haven is an affirming and suspenseful story about a young woman’s struggle to love again, Safe Haven is based on the novel from Nicholas Sparks, the best-selling author behind the hit films The Notebook and Dear John. When a mysterious young woman arrives in a small North Carolina town, her reluctance to join the tight knit community raises questions about her past. Slowly,
