'Doctor Sleep' Excerpt: Sneak Peek At Stephen King's 'Shining' Sequel

The following is an excerpt from Stephen King's new book, "Doctor Sleep." This book is the sequel to King's 1977 horror masterpiece, "The Shining." "Doctor Sleep" follows Dan Torrance as an adult who has to save a 12-year-old girl from a group of threatening paranormals. This is an excerpt of “Prefatory Matters” and “Chapter One:" LOCKBOX On the second day of December in a year when a Georgia peanut farmer was doing business in the White House, one of Colorado’s great resort hotels burned to the ground. The Overlook was declared a total loss. After an investigation, the fire marshal of Jicarilla County ruled the cause had been a defective boiler. The hotel was closed for the winter when the accident occurred, and only four people were present. Three survived. The hotel’s off-season caretaker, John Torrance, was killed during an unsuccessful (and heroic) effort to dump the boiler’s steam pressure, which had mounted to disastrously high levels due to an inoperative relief valve.

Paul R. Byrne: Great on Netflix: God Bless America
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Bobcat Goldthwait's God Bless America might be one of the last movies you want to watch, but it's probably the first you need to. This strange, bloody and yet unusually funny film is the story of beaten-down 50-something Bobcat-surrogate Frank. Spurned by his 9-year-old daughter, fired for sending flowers, his insomnia is spent channel-surfing the sewer of reality TV with watery eyes and ever-deepening sorrow. At the height of his sadness Frank places a military-issue pistol against the roof of his mouth but never fires. Instead he hears the hysterical fits of a Sweet 16 show starlet on TV, and realizes that there are people more deserving of death. So he kills her. Drives to her school, approaches her in the parking lot, and blows her blood around. Thus begins the main action of God Bless America: a cross-country killing spree, fueled by a hate of modern society, the psychopathic passions of his accomplice Roxy, and Bobcat Goldthwait's manifesto on what is wrong with t ...

Tony Bartolone: A Week at San Francisco Sketchfest: Part II
Huffington Post - about 4 years
The Set List: Comedy Without a Net with Jon Dore, Bobcat Goldthwait, Pete Holmes, Eddie Pepitone, Greg Proops and host Rick Overton at Cobb's Comedy Club Set List is one of the most refreshing shows being performed today. It is completely urgent and pertinent that any comedy geek see this wonderful cluster-fuck of comedy brilliance. The basic idea is that you take some of the best comics and give them a never-before-seen set list ("set list" meaning the list of subjects, or trigger-words, that comedians write in shorthand to memorize their act) and watch them pretend like its their own while they actually improvise the entire show. It is possibly the biggest guarantee that you will see something unique and memorable at a standup show. During this one specifically, a desperate Jon Dore ignited genuine awe when he gargled a bottle of ketchup. Set List plays all over LA, if you're ever in the area, the recommendation could not be higher. Pete Holmes improvises his never-b ...

Tony Bartolone: Top 5 Movies You Did Not See in 2012

Why can't a film simply exist without trying to change the world? There are plenty of different kinds of movies, and in the chaos of awards season some wonderful, little flicks are completely forgotten. With last year's underwhelming Oscar season still on my mind, I challenge you to seek out and enjoy the little things in life that never seem to get enough attention. 5. The Most Fun I've Had with My Pants On Drew Denny and Sarah Hagan star in The Most Fun I've Ever Had With My Pants On. Photo courtesy of Drew Denny.

Sandman Meditations – The Wake Part 1
Boom Tron - over 4 years
Sometimes, the English language plays along. A god-like king of dreams has died, and so there is a wake. Dreams, in the literal sense at least, die upon the dreamer’s waking, and so, too, in The Sandman when Morpheus is no more: the dreamers wake. There is a sense of quiet throughout this chapter, a quietude. And more so: gravity. Not for lack of words; there are plenty of words throughout these pages. Instead, the quiet, grave, pensive sorrow filling each panel seeps from the pencil lines and muted hues, the scored shadows along most of the edges, and all the downcast eyes. Though the chapter is not rich with plot, it gives an inescapable sense of motion, an undercurrent — the characters are all drawn toward the last page, the last panel. It’s the greatest, grandest view of the Endless we’ve yet seen, but also in many ways the coldest, for they look like stone monuments against a slate sky. “They are the family,” a character says. Families have a particular power at funerals. ...

Why Do So Many Movies Have Theater Shooting Scenes?
Huffington Post - over 4 years
LOS ANGELES -- There's something about the dark and quiet of a movie theater that allows us to make ourselves vulnerable. We enter into an implicit pact, giving over to the images, letting ourselves laugh at something silly or cry at something poignant, all in the cloistered company of strangers. That's why when something unexpected interrupts that experience, it's that much more startling, like being awakened suddenly from a vivid dream. Long before the massacre during a midnight showing of "The Dark Knight Rises" in Colorado, movies themselves have depicted the jarring sensation that occurs when the intrusion of reality disrupts the sanctity of sitting in a theater. Quite often these scenes are violent, but sometimes they're funny, clever or just plain weird. Perhaps because filmmakers feel so passionately about the moviegoing experience, they also enjoy shaking it up from an artistic perspective. Here's a look at several key examples: _"Inglourious Basterds" ...

When Bleeding Cool Met Bobcat Goldthwait – God Bless America, And His Plans For Horror And Found Footage Movies
Bleeding Cool - over 4 years
Not many working filmmakers excite me as much as Bobcat Goldthwait. He’s got five films under his belt, the three most recent of which are superbly personal, independent and made with perfect integrity (and the first two of which are similarly must-see anyhow). He’s a great role model for filmmakers, I think, pursuing the freedom to make his films, his way, and to have them all say and mean something he believes in, rather than there being any concern about how big his pay day will be. Released in the UK this July 4th (of course), God Bless America is being described as both his most personal and his angriest film to date. But does Bobcat himself see it that way? The film is about a man diagnosed with a terminal illness who goes on a killing spree with a teenage girl sidekick, putting a bullet into anybody who is just too darn rude. It’s a massively exaggerated revenge fantasy for anybody who ever craved justice when some idiot on the bus was playing loud and terrible music and jus ...

Bobcat Goldthwait Coming To The UK With His Extraordinary God Bless America
Bleeding Cool - over 4 years
While God Bless America has been made available via VOD in the US, we’re still drawing in on the film’s UK cinema release. But it’s great that we’ll get a fair chance to see this thing on the big screen, where it will work wonderfully. Good for us, then. “More like Rule Britannia than God Bless America”, etc. etc. etc. Here’s the UK trailer for the film. That “best day ever” will be July 4th, when the film opens here. There’s also a “London Premiere” event at the Prince Charles Cinema that night with Bobcat attending for a Q&A. If you heard his recent podcast Q&A session with Jeff Goldmsith I’d wager you’ve already clicked over to buy tickets. And then the film will then hit DVD here in the UK on the 9th. The US DVD and Blu-ray release is set for July 3rd. I saw the film when it premiered on VOD. It’s as abrasive and thrusting as the trailer makes it look, but it’s also sly, smart and sweet wherever necessary. It’s definitely a black comedy at heart, though. A black b ...

TV: TV Club: Comedy Bang Bang
A.V. Club - over 4 years
Comedy Bang Bang debuts tonight on IFC at 10 p.m. Eastern. The second episode is available here. Few comedic works have tapped into the true, unlimited nature of improvisation like Scott Aukerman’s Comedy Bang Bang podcast. The rambling, tangent-prone audio program is defined by its “open-door policy,” which allows a rotating cast of celebrity impressions, alter egos, and other assorted kooks to wrest control of the program from Aukerman week in and week out. Set in a parallel universe where, to cite one recent example, the host can share a recording studio with filmmakers Bobcat Goldthwait and Garry Marshall, Comedy Bang Bang asks a lot of the mind’s eye. The fact that the podcast exists in the audio realm has enabled it to head down some singularly bizarre paths, like a 2011 episode that began with a villainous Alan Rickman (voiced by CBB all-star James Adomian) hijacking ...

In which we hit it and quit it. Bernie Like a basset hound coming in first at the Kentucky Derby, Richard Linklater's Bernie is a floppy, improbable triumph. Nothing about it should work, but almost everything does. Essentially the story of a very friendly murderer (Jack Black), Bernie poses a finely balanced ethical quandary: What do we do when someone we like does something terrible to someone we hate? This isn't a documentary, and Linklater isn't constrained with balance or objectivity. Your opinion will shift, at times in sync with and in times in opposition to the film.

Video Free Brooklyn Purchased By Local Film Critic
Carrol Gardens Patch - over 4 years
Video Free Brooklyn, Carroll Gardens’ last standing video store, has been saved by film critic Aaron Hillis, who purchased the store last week and plans to re-open after some renovations, according to the Wall Street Journal (paywall). Hillis, who lives down the block from Video Free Brooklyn and was a loyal customer since it opened on Smith Street in 2002, admitted to the paper that the idea of owning a video store in the age of Netflix and iTunes was a little crazy, but hopes to set himself apart by stocking hard-to-find titles and hold screenings in the shop. "You can treat it in the same way as the vinyl resurgence,” Hillis told the Journal. “It's about being able to chat about movies with someone knowledgeable behind the counter, being able to pick up a box and not just click but have it in your hand.” Hillis is currently looking to raise $50,000 through Video Free Brooklyn’s page to completely renovate the space.

As a guest on one of the last episodes of The Arsenio Hall Show, Goldthwait became demonstrably upset that the program was being cancelled.
