'The Machine' Reboot Not Moving Forward at Syfy

The Machine won't be making the move to TV after all.

Syfy has passed on a series remake of the 2013 artificial-intelligence film, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Ordered to pilot a year ago, the drama was set in a world that is being transformed by the emergence of artificial intelligence. The project explored the epic conflict between man and technology through the lives and motivations of six interwoven characters — each of whom held the key to humanity’s victory or its destruction.

Filmmaker Caradog W. James (Don’t Knock Twice) wrote, directed and executive produced the pilot with Red...

Exclusive first look at the UK poster of Timothy Spall and Colm Meaney in The Journey

  • HeyUGuys
Author: Zehra Phelan

We are pleased to launch an exclusive first look at Timothy Spall and Colm Meaney in the UK poster for The Journey – the story of two of Northern Ireland’s political forces, loyalist Ian Paisley and former Ira Commander Martin McGuinness, forced together over the final peace agreement, who reluctantly begin to form a bond.

Related: Timothy Spall on playing David Irving in Denial

The poster in which Spall looks uncannily like how Ben Stiller would look in his dotage depicts both men in their stature of power yet divided by the title, a reference to the division of Ireland as it stands, in both its political and religious beliefs.

The Hole and Killing Bono director, Nick Hamm, takes the helm to bring to life a script from screenwriter and former journalist, Colin Bateman. Joining Meaney and Spall is somewhat of a stellar cast with Toby Stephens (Believe,

Movie Review – Don’t Knock Twice (2016)

Don’t Knock Twice, 2016.

Directed by Caradog W. James

Starring Katee Sackhoff, Lucy Boynton, Javier Botet, Nick Moran, Jordan Bolger, Pooneh Hajimohammadi, Richard Mylan and Ania Marson

Synopsis:

A mother desperate to reconnect with her troubled daughter becomes embroiled in the urban legend of a demonic witch.

The ever-likeable Katee Sackhoff strands herself in a well-made but trite Candyman knock-off that desperately strives to franchise itself out, but leans back on moldy haunted house tropes for the majority.

American sculptor Jess (Sackhoff) attempts to reconnect with her estranged British daughter Chloe (Lucy Boynton), who finds herself pursued by a relentless supernatural presence after knocking twice on the derelict home of her town’s deceased resident. Legend says that the demonic manifestation of the woman continues to haunt the house, and doesn’t take too kindly to Chloe’s visit.

Don’t Knock Twice is by no means a terrible film,

Time After Time Season 1 Episode 4 Review: Secrets Stolen

There are some really good plot developments as well as some seriously problematic elements in Time After Time Season 1 Episode 4

After Time After Time Season 1 Episode 3 that focused almost completely on fleshing out most of the the relationships, this offering reveals some excellent backstory to explain how so many people knew the time travelers were coming.

Thankfully, less time is spent on the labored romantic relationship between Wells and Jane although we still have to put up with a little sugary morning nonsense.

‘Don’t Knock Twice’ Exclusive Clip: Katee Sackhoff and Lucy Boynton Fight off a Disturbed Witch
In the new horror film “Don’t Knock Twice,” there’s a disturbing urban legend involving a child-stealing witch living in an abandoned house. “Knock once to wake her from her bed, twice to raise her from the dead…” goes the rhyme, but when troubled teen Chloe (Lucy Boynton) raps at the door one night, she has no idea the horror she’s about to unleash. She flees to the country home of her estranged mother (Katee Sackhoff) — a former addict turned famous artist — and must learn to trust her after many years in order to stop the demon stalking them. It co-stars Nick Moran (“Lock, Stock and Two Smocking Barrels”), Richard Mylan (“The Upside of Anger”), Pooneh Hajimohammadi (“Words with Gods”), Jordan Bolger (“Peaky Blinders”) and more. Watch an exclusive clip from the film below.

Movie Review: Strong direction can’t overcome story flaws in supernatural chiller Don’t Knock Twice

The power of horror rarely lies in the script. Mood and atmosphere aren’t lines of dialogue or storyboarded action so much as a difficult balancing act every director performs. And while strong directors can elevate subpar scripts, they can’t save plots from themselves. The new supernatural horror film Don’t Knock Twice benefits greatly from the direction of Caradog James. He takes a story that almost immediately plunges viewers into an unexplained and messy mythology and, for the better part of an hour, manages to distract from its weaker aspects by implying something far more interesting. Unfortunately, then the third act happens, and the spell is broken.

This is the second film in a row where James has proven himself a talented orchestrator of complex low-budget genre fare (the first being his little-seen but effective sci-fi thriller The Machine), wringing the most out of a limited budget through

Don’t Knock Twice Trailer Finds Katee Sackhoff Fighting A Witch

Mother and child horror films aren’t hard to find, especially these days. The Babadook might be the best of the bunch in recent years, but there’s still Goodnight Mommy, Lyle, the Carrie remake, Prevenge and now, Don’t Knock Twice, starring Battlestar Galactica‘s Katee Sackhoff, which will bring witches and evil spirits into the equation.

The premise is simple enough: a guilt-ridden mother (Sackhoff) tries to save her estranged daughter (Lucy Boynton) from an apparent curse from a vengeful witch, which terrorizes and haunts them, in the vein of Candyman or The Ring. But with its unsettling imagery, disturbing visuals and jarring editing, Don’t Knock Twice — not to be confused with Mike Birbiglia’s Don’t Think Twice from last summer, which is a completely different movie— certainly looks promising. We hope to say the same when it enters theaters, whenever that might be in the United States.

Don't Knock Twice Brings a New Urban Legend to the Screen!

Release details have emerged for Caradog James' (The Machine) Don't Knock Twice. IFC Films will show this haunted featured in theatres and via Video-on-demand in early February. The film's story is based on an urban legend, involving a child-stealing witch. Able to change its form, this monster might just be unstoppable. An early, Russian trailer shows Chloe (Lucy Boynton) struggling with the witch's curse. The film also stars: Katee Sackhoff (Longmire), Nick Moran (Lock, Stock and Two Smocking Barrels) and Richard Mylan (Grownups). A look ahead at the home entertainment launch of Don't Knock Twice is hosted here. The urban legend is new to at least one horror fan. The saying goes like this: "knock once to wake her from her bed, twice to raise her from the dead." Once woken, the witch pursues Chloe and Chloe seeks refuge with her mother. Together, they attempt to put the witch back in the grave.

Let's Be Evil review – routine stalk'n'slasher undermined by budget

Us teenagers are kept underground for a doomed world-building project in this cheap British teen horror flick

Prolific Brit producer Jonathan Willis here attempts a teen-oriented tweak of the science-gone-wrong theme of his 2013 success The Machine. It’s about the doomed Posterity Project, a programme that sequesters the best and brightest youngsters in the Us underground. While their twentysomething handlers uncover the project’s deadlier glitches, director Martin Owen applies plentiful visual gloss. A first-person shooting style necessitates intricate, Peep Show-like eyeline-matching, and the effects work is unusually sophisticated. Yet there’s no dressing up some desperately ordinary stalk-and-slashing, and the budget undermines the world-building: ex-EastEnder Kara Tointon heads a roster of phony Us accents, and while Kids in America gets repeat plays, surely nobody here ventured much beyond Amersham.
