Movie Review: Marlon Wayans wakes up Naked wakes up Naked in this shitty Groundhog Day clone

For many, Groundhog Day qualifies as a near-perfect comedy. Apparently, though, there are some highly motivated people out there who think it’d be a whole lot funnier if the guy stuck in the endless time loop were constantly running around with his bare ass exposed and his hands covering his junk. Back in 2000, Swedish brothers Mårten and Torkel Knutsson tested this theory with their film Naken, in which protagonist Anders relives the same hour leading up to his wedding, over and over, waking up nude in an elevator each time the loop resets. Nobody liked Naken much, but Marlon Wayans seems to have decided that the problem lay in the execution, not in the conception—and to have further decided that he and director Michael Tiddes, with whom he’d previously collaborated on the critically reviled A Haunted House and Fifty Shades Of Black, could succeed where the ...

Free It Experience in Los Angeles to Take People Through the Neibolt House

Fans of Stephen King's 1986 novel It know that 29 Neibolt Street is home to many horrors for the kids who make up the Losers' Club, and we'll be reintroduced to the unsettling location in the new It movie this September. If you want to explore the house's creepy confines for yourself, though, you can visit the It immersive experience in Los Angeles this summer.

Taking place August 14th–September 10th on Hollywood Blvd in Los Angeles, and open 1:00pm–11:00pm every day, the It Experience is based on the Neibolt house (a place where Pennywise lurks) from the upcoming film, giving fans 18 and older the chance to encounter many types of haunted house scares, including live actors and animatronics, in a 20-minute journey through the attraction.

Marlon Wayans in First Trailer for Time Loop Film 'Naked' from Netflix

"I'm freakin' out!" Netflix has unveiled a trailer for a goofy comedy titled Naked, another new time loop film (in addition to two others this year alone - Before I Fall and Happy Death Day). From the director of the parody comedy A Haunted House, Marlon Wayans stars in Naked as a guy about to be married, who ignores his responsibilities and spends the night before the wedding partying with a friend. He wakes up naked in an elevator and must relive the next hour until he gets things right on his wedding day. Yeah, what a unique concept. The full ensemble cast features Regina Hall, Dennis Haysbert, Scott Foley, Loretta Devine, Neil Brown Jr., Dave Sheridan, Megan Messmer, Jonathan Todd Jackson, and Cory Hardrict. As much as I usually enjoy time loop films, this one looks pretty bad. Doubt I'll be watching this. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Michael Tiddes' Naked,

Making ‘A Ghost Story’: How David Lowery Exorcised His Demons To Make The Best Film Of Sundance 2017

Making ‘A Ghost Story’: How David Lowery Exorcised His Demons To Make The Best Film Of Sundance 2017
There were roughly 72 hours until the Sundance premiere of David Lowery’s latest feature, but I already knew that one pivotal scene — in which a bereaved Rooney Mara devours an entire pie during the course of a five-minute long-take — would be the talk of the festival. “She did one take of eating the whole thing,” Lowery said with a smile, sitting across the table from me in the Park City Marriott where we’re having coffee, “preceded by two takes of her coming into the house and eating the first couple of bites. So she ate a lot of pie.”

I pressed for more details. “It was a chocolate pudding pie. Vegan. Very low sugar content. I believe the crust was gluten-free,” he said. “Rooney told me beforehand that she had never had pie in her life, so it was a first in many regards.” Lowery looked to his right,

Q&A: Director Sheldon Wilson Discusses Filming The Unspoken and The Night Before Halloween

  • DailyDead
A haunted house harbors sinister scares in The Unspoken, a new horror movie coming out on DVD today from Anchor Bay Entertainment. For our latest Q&A feature, we caught up with filmmaker Sheldon Wilson to discuss paying tribute to ’70s horror movies, the eerie day almost everyone got mysteriously sick on set, and working with Bailee Madison on his other recent scary movie, The Night Before Halloween.

Thanks for taking the time to answer some questions for us, Sheldon. When did you first come up with the idea for The Unspoken?

Sheldon Wilson: I had been looking to do a horror movie that was a bit of an homage to the horror films of the ’70s, the films I grew up on. I was brought a script that had some core ideas that I thought lent themselves well to the type of classic horror I wanted to make,

Jay Kay’s Five Favorite Films At Fantastic Fest 2016!!

To experience a genre film festival is to see the life and dreams of unique as well as deeply creative souls unveil like flower opening on a warm day. Each film and filmmaker are like fingerprints leaving their own mark on the viewer, peer and that segment of time forever.

Terror on TV: Fred and Barney and Murder and Greed in “A Haunted House is Not a Home”

Terror on TV revisits the most sadistic The Flintstones episode ever. When Hanna-Barbera launched The Flintstones in 1960, it was an animated answer to pioneering television sitcom The Honeymooners, with Alan Reed’s Fred Flintstone and Mel Blanc’s Barney Rubble serving as prehistoric riffs on Jackie Gleason’s Ralph Kramden and Art Carney’s Ed Norton. And because…

Meet the Blacks review – an angry and unapologetically gutter-mouthed comedy

While there is a whiff of social commentary in this low-budget spoof of the 2013 horror The Purge, only a comic performance from Bresha Webb provides any impact

“Daddy, they Purgin’!” So shouts Bresha Webb, whose comic performance in the ultra low-budget Meet the Blacks is so unpredictable and versatile it virtually makes up for the film’s many dull patches. Webb, who is 28 but plays the teen daughter of Carl Black, has a range that zips from Judy Holliday-like ditz to an antic, Kevin Hart-style faux toughie over the course of just one scene. That’s probably not a good indicator of the film’s overall consistency, but considering how ridiculous this movie is, ditching credibility for the higher cause of a laugh at any price is probably the right decision. Meet the Blacks is an asinine film (though with a kernel of seriousness) but whenever it feels

Fifty Shades Of Black review

facebook

twitter

google+

It only took a year: here's the spoof take on 50 Shades Of Grey. Chortle.

When Scary Movie came out back in 2000, some remarked that the sleeper hit horror parody was spoofing a satire by drawing inspiration and iconography from Scream, which Wes Craven intended as a trope-riddled satire of the genre. Nevertheless, four sequels and a slew of other parody movies (mostly by 'two of the six writers', Aaron Seltzer and Jason Friedberg) followed and have served to run the art of cinematic parody into the ground over the last 15 years.

Fifty Shades Of Black hasn't been anywhere near as big a hit for co-writer and star Marlon Wayans as Scary Movie was, although it's arguably in a similar situation as that first breakout hit. Many of us (this reviewer included) felt that last year's E.L. James adaptation Fifty Shades Of Grey was already hilarious by accident,

Fifty Shades Of Black review: “An offensive, disgusting mess of a movie”

Fifty Shades Of Black review: There’s not a lot to like about this new comedy spoof from Marlon Wayans and co.

Fifty Shades Of Black review by Paul Heath. I honestly don’t know where to begin with Fifty Shades Of Black, the latest ‘comedy’ that spoofs last year’s Fifty Shades Of Grey movie, and many others. Actually, I will start here; there’s a scene near the end of the film where Marlon Wayans picks up a hardback copy of E.L. James’ source material and then immediately ridicules it for its poor dialogue and corny content. I can’t quite tell if he’s also taking a sly, fourth-wall-breaking dig at his own movie, or not. We’ll give him the benefit of the doubt, but we won’t forgive him for the rest of this ridiculous, offensive, putrid, dire and most importantly, completely unfunny effort that

Exclusive interview: Marlon Wayans for ‘Fifty Shades Of Black’

In cinemas from this Friday is the new comedy from Marlon Wayans, Fifty Shades Of Black. Wayans is best known for his previous parodies that include the likes of Scary Movie and its sequel Scary Movie 2, and A Haunted House. The actor, producer and writer has also appeared alongside his brother Shawn in the hugely successful White Chicks, and Little Man.

In Fifty Shades Of Black, Wayans parodies last year’s successful adaptation of the E.L. James novel Fifty Shades Of Grey, as well as other big films of the last twelve months, including Magic Mike. This week, we caught up with Marlon in London where he spoke about filming the movie, his love of English girls, being single, shooting that Mmxxl scene and getting into shape for his new role.

Fifty Shades Of Black hits UK cinemas from Friday 11th March.

15 Horror Comedies You Should See Before You Die

XLrator Media

It often makes you wonder about the tastes of modern audiences when horror comedies – a combination of the two most downright enjoyable genres in cinema – usually manage to both be a turn-off critics, and fail at the box office. If ever a genre had the potential for send-up, it’s the one that spawned the immortal classics Unfriended, Ouija and Annabelle.

Then again, it’s entirely possible that a modern crowd just doesn’t want to see horror being parodied. A decent horror comedy (or, failing that, Scary Movie 5) will make fun of all the genre conventions and spoof their weaknesses, and the people who’re itching to see another Friday the 13th eboot don’t want that.

Or maybe they watched A Haunted House and Vampires Suck and wrote off the idea that horror can be funny. It can, but you won’t find many laughs in those opportunistic would-be comedies,
