Horror-On-Sea 2018 Interview: John Adams talks ‘Aux’

Aux is a new action horror from co-writer and director John Adams, which has been selected to play at the Horror-on-Sea Film Festival on Sunday 28th January. I got chance to ask John a few questions about the inspiration behind the story, the reason for the abbreviated title Aux and working with such a talented cast including John Rhys-Davies.

What can we expect from Aux?

What we set out to make with Aux was a smart genre film. The idea was to take the structure and beats of a slasher movie but introduce and weave in a little known true story from WWII as the twist in the plot. From a commercial standpoint, our aim was to be within the horror space enough to attract the traditional horror audience, but be different enough to stand out from the competition.

What was your inspiration for writing the film Aux?

Movie Review: Hangman

First, I like thrillers. I like Karl Urban too. I also like the walking caricature that has replaced Al Pacino for the past 25 years or so. A mix like this ought to be the guilty pleasure of the year, and don’t get me wrong, while the ride is going, Pacino’s new film Hangman is decent enough entertainment. Unfortunately, there is a little too much suspension of disbelief (and a few too many last-minute explanations) for Hangman to be anything more than a “fun, but forgettable” film.

Detective Will Ruiney (Karl Urban) is none too happy with his most recent assignment: take reporter Christi Davies (Brittany Snow) on his daily routine to cover the activities of cops in his Monroe, Georgia district. Unfortunately, things go off the rails almost immediately when the pair stumbles upon a hanging corpse with a letter carved in its chest, and a crude game

Neil Patrick Harris ‘Appreciates Holidays and Traditions Through’ the Eyes of His Twins
Neil Patrick Harris always loved the holiday season but even more so as a parent to 7-year-old twins Gideon Scott and Harper Grace.

And he has a meal called the Feast of the Seven Fishes,” the actor, 44, told PeopleTV about his and husband David Burtka’s annual family Christmas traditions with their kids.

“It’s a traditional Italian meal, and our kids are adventurous eaters. We like to get dressed up that night on Christmas

5 Great Film Endings In Cinema History

In my last editorial, I discussed some of cinema’s best movie introductions, stating the importance of why a movie should rope you in and keep you firmly fixed in your seat. But film endings are equally important! I cannot count how many times I have sat through what I like to call “throw away” endings, ones in which come across lazy just to tie up the feature because the filmmakers seemingly ran out of ideas after showing their best ones already. But it makes one feel good when a lot of thought has been put into a script, especially when it translates well on screen. And a big part of that is giving the audience a big pay in which they will walk away from the movie and remember it for.

Below are five film endings that I think are just a small portion of ones in which really deliver.

Usual Suspects Shoot Was Halted Over Kevin Spacey Misconduct Allegations

Usual Suspects Shoot Was Halted Over Kevin Spacey Misconduct Allegations
The Usual Suspects actor Gabriel Byrne has come forward to reveal that production of the legendary 1995 movie was briefly stopped due to sexual misconduct allegations towards Kevin Spacey. Shortly after Harvey Weinstein was accused of sexual misconduct over the course of decades, Star Trek: Discovery actor Anthony Rapp came forward and alleged that Kevin Spacey made sexual advances to him when he was only 14-years old in 1986. Rapp was first, but now many men have come forward to share their similar experiences with Kevin Spacey, from England to the United States, mostly having to do with when these men were younger.

Gabriel Byrne recently spoke with the Sunday Times where he revealed that production of cult classic The Usual Suspects stopped for two days, but most were not sure as to why at the time. It was later that Byrne and the rest of the cast and crew learned that

10 Star Wars: The Force Awakens Facts You Never Knew

10 Star Wars: The Force Awakens Facts You Never Knew
The internet exploded in the fall of 2012 with the announcement that George Lucas sold Star Wars to Disney, just three years after the Mouse House purchased Marvel. This meant that not only would all expanded universe material be reorganized as Star Wars Legends, with only the six theatrical films and the Clone Wars series declared canon, but that the world would soon get all new Star Wars material, from books to comics to video games, and of course, most excitingly, a brand new trilogy! Once J.J. Abrams was onboard to direct and co-write Star Wars Episode VII, details were guarded more closely than the plans for the Death Star. Cast announcements and story details were valuable currency. Speculation ran rampant. Now, of course, the secrets of The Force Awakens have been unlocked like a Jedi holocron. Here, we look at 10 things you never knew about Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

10 Fight Club Facts You Never Knew

10 Fight Club Facts You Never Knew
Today, it's an oft-quoted classic, but Fight Club was only a modest success when it was released in 1999. Its cult film status was cemented by repeated VHS and DVD viewings, thanks to the brilliant performances by Brad Pitt, Edward Norton, and Helena Bonham Carter in David Fincher's adaptation of the novel of the same name. By now, we're all as familiar with the movie's twist as we are the whole bit in The Sixth Sense. Yes, there's the whole "first rule of Fight Club," but we've all shared anecdotes like the subversive frames hidden in the movie, or the Starbucks cups in every scene. Here, we look at 10 things you never knew about Fight Club.

The Producers courted four different directors.

It's hard to imagine anyone else behind the camera, but producers approached at least three other directors for the job before making a deal with David Fincher, who

World War Z 2 Director Is Still Mapping Out the Mythology

World War Z 2 Director Is Still Mapping Out the Mythology
After four years of development, Paramount's sequel World War Z 2 is finally moving forward with director David Fincher. The filmmaker had been rumored for the project for nearly a year, after Brad Pitt first mentioned it in an August 2016 interview. Still, Paramount hasn't set a release date at this time, and it isn't clear when production starts. But the filmmaker revealed in a new interview for his Netflix series Mindhunter that he's still working on the story. Here's what he had to say below.

"We're trying. A lot of stones have been laid. We're just deconstructing it right now against the mythology that exists to see where we can go."

World War Z 2 had been originally slated for release on June 9, 2017, but that never happened, since, in February, Paramount indefinitely delayed World War Z 2, taking the sequel off its release slate entirely. While David Fincher is on board to direct,

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has announced that seven acclaimed films from director Christopher Nolan will be available for the first time on 4K Ultra HD on December 18th in Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises, Inception, Dunkirk, The Prestige and Interstellar.

If you can’t rewatch these films in the theater, this is the best experience you can have in your own home.”

Latest rumours on The Batman claim it will be a Justice League sequel with or without Ben Affleck

I’m struggling to think of a project which has had as much rumour and speculation surrounding it as Warner Bros. and DC Films’ planned Dark Knight solo movie The Batman.

For months now, it seems a day hasn’t gone by without some report claiming to drop “insider information” on the status of the film, and that stepped up a gear this past week when Ben Affleck revealed that he was yet to sign on for the movie, and looking to “segue out” of the role.

To bring you up to speed, a rumour emerged a few days ago claiming that Reeves has identified Jake Gyllenhaal as a replacement for Ben Affleck, and that he is considering two ideas for his trilogy – one which would serve as a prequel to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and the other as a standalone series of films.

Well, we now have

The Batman Said To Be A Crime Film That Dives Deep Into Batman Mythos

After Wonder Woman, there was a brief period when the Dceu looked to be back on track. Then came the big fat mess of Justice League, which likely marks the final time we’ll see Ben Affleck in the Batsuit. Jake Gyllenhaal is apparently poised to take over the role from him in Matt ReevesThe Batman, which is currently in pre-production, but what would a Gyllenhaal/Reeves Dark Knight pic look like?

After the failure of Justice League, will they jettison the increasingly wobbly Dceu and make it a solo film, or perhaps head back way before Man of Steel and show us the prime of the Dceu Batman? Well, inside sources at Warner Bros. have now told former Latino-Review writer Mario-Francisco Robles that it’ll be neither. Word is that DC are ploughing ahead with their cinematic universe, saying in concrete terms: “The Batman will not be a prequel or reboot.

Want To See What It’d Be Like If David Fincher Directed Halloween?

Because I’m a giant film geek, I absolutely adore those “what if X directed Y” video mashups. Perhaps my all-time favorites are Patrick (H) Willem’s What If Wes Anderson Directed X-Men and What If Ingmar Bergman Directed The Flash. Now, it looks like we have two new challengers: “Jack and Justin” aka Justin Nijm and Jack Bishop, who you might be familiar with from their online comedy shorts – particularly, Dennis Quaid’s On-Set Freak-Out, which was featured on Jimmy Kimmel.

Recently, they served up a cool-as-hell imagining of what a David Fincher-directed Halloween might look like. Clearly, the pair know their Fincher, as they’ve gone to impressive lengths to emulate the aesthetics and atmosphere of one of his movies, complete with a stabilized camera and color correction. On top of all that, they’ve used Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross’ remix of the Halloween theme, which

Is it time to erase Kevin Spacey from history?

Anghus Houvouras on whether it is time to erase Kevin Spacey from history…

It’s rare that you get to see a snowball rolling down a hill. The popular metaphor about momentum has always struck me as odd for a few reasons. First, how often does someone roll a snowball down a hill, much less successfully have a hand-sized ball of snow transform into a gigantic ice-cold flattening orb? Second, even if this was physically probable it’s doubtful that you were there to witness it. More than likely, you’re seeing the thing just moments before it mows you down like a Looney Tunes character.

The last few weeks has been the first time that the snowball metaphor has felt apt. I watched, as so many did, as accusations rolled out against small type perps like Devin Faraci, Harry Knowles and their enablers like the head of Alamo Drafthouse

Made in England: Three Classics by Powell and Pressburger

  • MUBI
Mubi is showing Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger's The Small Back Room (1949), The Tales of Hoffmann (1951) and Michael Powell's Peeping Tom (1960) in November and December, 2017 in the United States in the series Powell & Pressburger: Together and Apart.The story goes that when they were casting their first flat-out masterpiece together, The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp (1943), Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger sent a letter to an actress outlining a manifesto of their production company, called "the Archers." At the time, the Archers was freshly incorporated, with Powell and Pressburger sharing all credit for writing, directing, and producing, and their manifesto had five points. Point one was to ensure that they provided their financial backers with "a profit, not a loss," which may raise eyebrows among those who are used to manifestos burning with anti-capitalist fire—but then, in a system like commercial cinema, profitability buys freedom.

Should Hollywood’s Worst Keep Us Away from the Content It Produces?

Samuel Brace on whether the scandals currently rocking Hollywood should keep us away from content…

Hollywood is in crisis. There are no two ways about it.

First there was the Harvey Weinstein scandal, the alleged sexual assaults, harassment, and even rape of myriad women during his time as one of the industry’s most powerful producers. And then there’s director Brett Ratner, accused of preying on individuals and forcing himself on a former employee of Endeavor Talent Agency. And, perhaps most shockingly of all, there’s Kevin Spacey, accused of molesting a 14 year old actor when he himself was 26 years old, and sexually harassing and assaulting copious other young men throughout his career, including on the set of his hit Netflix show, House of Cards.

Now, accusations aren’t convictions, allegations aren’t proof, but where there is smoke, there is nearly always fire, and right now, the smoke

Alien 3 to Mindhunter: David Fincher’s outsider protagonists

Ryan Lambie Nov 3, 2017

Netflix's Mindhunter is the latest example of the unique, outsider characters in the work of David Fincher...

When FBI agent Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) sits down with convicted serial killer Edmund Kemper (Cameron Britton) in the Netflix series Mindhunter, he’s both terrified and fascinated. Kemper, serving multiple life sentences for a spate of brutal kidnappings and murders - including his own mother - could offer a valuable insight into a criminal mindset that was barely understood in the late 1970s. Ford hopes to use a series of interviews with Kemper, and convicts like him, to build up a psychological profile which could be used to help track down other serial murderers; it soon becomes apparent, however, that Ford’s fascination with Kemper runs beyond the strictly professional.
