'Kingsman' and 'LEGO Ninjago' Ready to Add to September's Record Pace

'Kingsman' and 'LEGO Ninjago' Ready to Add to September's Record Pace
September 2017 is currently pacing 15.6% ahead of 2016 with a calendar gross of $467.3 million, putting the month on a record pace, $48 million ahead of where 2015 was at the same time period before delivering $626.4 million, the largest September calendar gross ever. Almost half of September's total at this point is thanks to Warner Bros. and New Line's It, which is looking to do strong numbers again this weekend, but will fall from its #1 perch after two straight weeks on top. Debuting in wide release this weekend is Fox's Kingsman: The Golden Circle and it should have enough juice to take the weekend top spot while Warner Animation Group's The LEGO Ninjago Movie is looking to finish in the runner-up position. Entertainment Studios' is going social with the R-rated horror Friend Request debuting in just over 2,500 theaters and likely to finish in the top five (albeit with minimal returns) while Roadside Attractions is

Tribeca 2017 Interview: Mickey Keating, Ashley Bell & Larry Fessenden Discuss Reteaming for Psychopaths

  • DailyDead
Psychopaths, the latest film from writer/director Mickey Keating, recently enjoyed its world premiere at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival. Daily Dead had the chance to speak with Keating and Psychopaths co-stars Ashley Bell and Larry Fessenden, and the trio discussed reteaming for their latest collaboration (both Bell and Fessenden were in Keating’s previous genre effort, Carnage Park) and what fans can expect from Keating’s latest slice of horror-fueled fun.

For those who may miss out on Psychopaths during Tribeca, the film heads to The Overlook Film Festival later this week.

Great to speak with you today, guys, and I can’t wait to see the movie. So, Mickey, can you discuss what inspired you this time around? From what I've seen from the clips and different publicity materials, this feels like a complete 180 from Carnage Park and your other previous projects.

Mickey Keating: Yeah, what was kind

'Lavender': Film Review

'Lavender': Film Review
Characters in horror films would be well advised to heed a couple of simple rules: Repressed memories should by all means stay repressed. And whatever you do, avoid walking through mazes.

Unfortunately, such advice would be lost on Jane (Abbie Cornish), the heroine of Lavender, the latest effort by director Ed Gass-Donnelly (Small Town Murder, The Last Exorcism: Part II). A photographer who specializes in shooting rundown, abandoned farmhouses (not hard to see where this is going), Jane finds her life upended after a serious auto accident that leaves her with memory loss.

Prodded by an eager hospital psychiatrist...

[Review] An Engaging Premise Can’t Save ‘Incarnate’ From Mediocrity

[Review] An Engaging Premise Can’t Save ‘Incarnate’ From Mediocrity
Possession films have had a rough go of it recently. With the exception of The Last Exorcism and The Conjuring (and maybe The Taking of Deborah Logan), there haven’t been many notable entries in the sub-genre since 2005 (The Exorcism of Emily Rose being the last truly great possession film). So many of these films tell the same story we’ve […]

The Weekend Warrior 12/2/16: Incarnate, Jackie, Old Stone

  • LRM Online
Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.

This Past Weekend:

It wasn’t a bad Thanksgiving weekend, especially for the Weekend Warrior who pretty much nailed two of his predictions for the weekend! Disney Animation’s Moana indeed at opened at #1 with $55.5 million for the three-day weekend (exactly my prediction), although it ended up with more--$81.1 million--in its first five days. The Brad Pitt-Marion Cotillard spy thriller, Allied (Paramount), directed by Robert Zemeckis, also opened with $18 million, right on track with my prediction. I guess I could take some comfort on being spot on with two of the Thanksgiving releases—like I said last week, that holiday weekend is a bear to predict—but I way overestimated the other two movies as sequelitis indeed hit Billy Bob Thornton

Intense Survivalist Thriller Carnage Park Heads to DVD/Bluray This November!

At Icons of Fright, we’re fans of director Mickey Keating’s work. One of the most diverse filmmakers around, each film of Keating’s feels completely different from the previous one and the director never feels the need to repeat himself. Thanks to the crew over at Scream Factory and their partnership with IFC Midnight, Keating’s survivalist thriller Carnage Park is hitting DVD/Bluray on November 1st and it’s most definitely one we’d recommend. It’s an intense film and gives fans one scary performance from Pat Healy, one of the best actors working today.

It’s 1978 and a bank robbery gone wrong forces two criminals to take a hostage – the young-but-resilient Vivian (The Last Exorcism’s Ashley Bell) – as they go on the run. But things go from bad to off-the-rails berserk when Vivian and her captors wind up in the crosshairs of a deranged ex-military sniper (Pat Healy,

As ‘Blair Witch’ Flops, Is the Found-Footage Horror Film Over?

As ‘Blair Witch’ Flops, Is the Found-Footage Horror Film Over?
Now that “Blair Witch,” the abysmal shaky-cam horror sequel that no one was waiting for, has come and bombed, you might be tempted to say that a certain genre is ready to lay down and die. But you’d be wrong. In the megaplex, of course, the found-footage horror film enjoyed a quick rise, a brief reign, and (now) a spectacular fall. It was launched, in 1999, with “The Blair Witch Project,” which in addition to being a highly original and — yes — unsettling movie became a fascinating phenomenon in two ways. First off, its success was beyond staggering, and not just because its $140 million domestic gross gave it the greatest budget-to-profit ratio of any movie ever made. Budget aside, “The Blair Witch Project” put more butts in seats than “Pulp Fiction” did. Clearly, that had something to do with the dread and intrigue generated by the uniquely austere thriller up onscreen,

Why Scream: The TV Series is Worth Your Time

  • DailyDead
When it comes to genre television series as of late, there are a few shows that get more love than others. And since I finally caught up with the recent season two finale of Scream: The TV Series, I thought now would be the perfect time to tip my hat to this underrated series that not only wears its horror-loving heart so very clearly on its sleeve, but also keeps the mystery-fueled spirit of Wes Craven’s films alive and kicking, all while showcasing a lot of fantastic talent behind the camera as well.

And as much as I adore those first two factors, it’s that final part—the way Scream: The TV Series has utilized some incredible directorial talent—that has made me a staunch supporter of the show, as I’d argue that Scream may the best genre series that most fans have consistently overlooked ever since it debuted last summer.

Icons of Fright Chat with Carnage Park Director Mickey Keating!

One of the most prolific, up and coming directors working in genre films today, filmmaker Mickey Keating is an inspiration to those who have a dream and a passion. From his cult-based shocker film Ritual, all the way to the alien conspiracy-filled Pod, the Polanski homage of Darling and now Carnage Park, Keating wears his influences on his sleeve, without ever feeling like he’s lifting from those influences, his films all feel uniquely original and he’s one of the few filmmakers today who has yet to make a film I didn’t love.

We had a short chat with Keating to discuss his survival horror thriller, Carnage Park (In theaters/VOD now!), a film that showcases excellent performances from Cheap Thrills star Pat Healy, The Last Exorcism‘s Ashley Bell and Ferris Bueller’S Day Off/Young Guns 2 star Alan Ruck. Read on!
