American Film Fans Abide: Six Small Movies Cutting Through the Mediocrity
Huffington Post - 5 months
Like the Stranger once said to the Dude, "Sometimes you eat the bear. And sometimes the bear eats you." Consumers of American film got to eat a lot of good bear meat back in 2015 (that is not in any way meant to be a reference to The Revenant.) But in 2016, damn, we've been served up to the bear on a big-ass platter. There has been so much mediocrity coming from American filmmakers this year that it's hard to even get worked up about it. So much pleasant, competent, boring crap. Whether it's the latest Bridget Jones (and I know that's a British/American co-production directed by a Welsh woman) or the newest remake (that would be The Magnificent Seven), finding something original and engaging seems like a tougher and tougher mission in 2016. I know that many times film-goers are just looking for a easy diversion for a few hours between dinner and - depending on your wont - sex, gaming, or a midnight sundae. No problem with that. Two of my favorite movies of the year, Popstar: Never ...

Plenty to recommend in ensemble indie 'The Intervention'
LATimes - 6 months
The weekend-away-with-friends indie has become a safe testing ground for first-time feature directors: one (typically pretty) location reduces certain production stresses, while a large cast allows plenty of room to discover what works and what doesn’t. In the case of actress Clea DuVall’s debut...

Lizzie Borden Swings Her Axe in a Lifetime Movie
Huffington Post - about 3 years
If you were casting in your mind for a 30-ish actress to play the title role of Lizzie Borden in a television movie about her life, wouldn't Christina Ricci be at the top of your list? There is something just quirky enough about the characters this actress has created in the past to make her a match for the role of the young woman who took an axe to her parents back in the mid 1800's. Ricci makes the character innocent on the outside but vile on the inside and that is the right combination to make her totally believable in this role. Lifetime's original movie Lizzie Borden Took An Axe spends very little time on the events leading up to the murder of the senior Bordens, but focuses on the crimes and their aftermath. Lizzie claims to have discovered her father's body and sent their maid for help. Then later the maid went upstairs and found Mrs. Borden's body. Lizzie claimed someone with a grudge against her father (Stephen McHattie) must have done it, but there was an almost two hour ti ...

Christina Ricci Looks Delightfully Murderous As Lizzie Borden In Lifetime Movie
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Lifetime clearly hasn't lost its flair for dramatics. Based on the chilling nursery rhyme, "Lizzie Borden Took An Ax" stars Christina Ricci as the titular character on trial for murdering her parents. In this first look, Ricci is a wholesome gal ... with a bloody ax. The real Lizzie Borden has had a steadfast place in American folklore since the 1800s, paving the way for future female serial killers, murderers and infamous media darlings. (Translation: It's a ready-made Lifetime movie.) "Lizzie Borden" also stars Billy Campbell and Clea DuVall. Lifetime's official description: "On a scorching, hot summer day in 1892 in Fall River, Massachusetts, Lizzie Borden (Ricci) returns home to the house she shares with her father Andrew, stepmother Abby and sister Emma (DuVall). But, unlike any normal day, Lizzie encounters the bloody scene of her parents violently murdered. Police quickly question multiple suspects in town, but evidence keeps pointing back to the Borden’s youngest daughte ...

American Horror Story Scares Will Continue for Season 3
Boom Tron - over 4 years
Ryan Murphy isn’t finished frightening us. His spooky hit drama American Horror Story was just renewed for a third spine-tingling season. What new horrors await us this time? TV Line broke the news that the show’s star, Ms. Jessica Lange would return for the third incarnation of the series. I think that’s very cool. She played Southerner, Constance, for Season 1 and has been the Asylum‘s Sister Jude this season. The role of Constance won Lange both the Golden Globe and a Primetime Emmy. American Horror Story: Asylum ends on Jan. 23 and the new 13-episode third season begins production this summer. You can enjoy what’s left of this season on the FX network on Wednesday nights. When I say the series is popular, I really mean it. Asylum averages over 5 million viewers. If you’re confused about the different seasons not being related, don’t be. It was Murphy who announced after season one had run, that his second season, and every season thereafter, would be a total re-vamp, al ...

'American Horror Story: Asylum': Zachary Quinto On Being Bloody Face And What's To Come
The Huffington Post - over 4 years
After five weeks of naughty nuns, electroshock therapy, aliens, severed limbs, Nazis and a serial killer in question, Bloody Face was finally revealed on "American Horror Story: Asylum" (Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET on FX) ... and it's not Kit Walker (Evan Peters). [SPOILER ALERT] Dr. Oliver Thredson (Zachary Quinto), who was assigned to Kit's case, helped Lana (Sarah Paulson) escape, which was obviously too good to be true. When they got to his "Mad Men" meets "Hannibal" home, Lana figures out that he's Bloody Face and now, she's chained to his basement floor next to he frosty body of her dead girlfriend Wendy (Clea DuVall). But why Lana? Read More... More on TV Spoilers

Sarah Paulson: 'AHS' Has So Only Just Begun
Popeater - over 4 years
If you've been watching "American Horror Story: Asylum," chances are ... you've been scared shitless. But, according to Sarah Paulson, who plays lesbian reporter turned Briarcliff patient Lana Winters, "It's so only just begun. What happens in the first few episodes is like eating a bowl of ice cream compared to what happens to her." On the series' fourth episode (Wed., Nov. 7 at 10 p.m. ET on FX), things take a turn for Lana, Paulson told HuffPost TV. Even Chloe Sevigny, who played Shelley on "Asylum", told us, "What happens to Sarah Paulson's character [later on] is what's scariest to me." Below, Paulson, who also recurred on Season 1 of "American Horror Story," explains why "Asylum" is far more terrifying than its predecessor, upcoming guest stars, how the show can make an impact in terms of gay rights (even though it's set 50 years in the past) and what it's like being flashed by Evan Peters, which made her and Jessica Lange burst into laughter. Seriously. What d ...

Taylor Cole Miller: The Deliciously Queer World of American Horror Story
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Wrapped in the "bucket of blood" theme from Brian De Palma's Carrie, intrepid young reporter, Lana Winters (Sarah Paulson), ascends a large wooden winding staircase at Briarcliff Manor, a stereotypical Catholic criminal mental institution in the early 1960s, hoping to get a story on a new inmate, a serial killer named Bloody Face. As she climbs level after level in a spinning, dizzy sequence, she's surrounded by an outcast of "crazies" pulling her into a queerer world -- like Dorothy sucked up into a vortex and dropped into Oz. For those of us familiar with the song's use in Carrie, it feels detached hearing the music without Piper Laurie's haunting words, "they're all gonna laugh at you" underscoring the slow-motion insidiousness of Carrie's classmates. The tension is so tight -- like stretching back a rubber band -- that anticipating the moment in which everything snaps becomes exhausting. But even if you're unfamiliar with Carrie, living in this music and scene alone is ...

Joey DeAngelis: 'American Horror Story: Asylum' Premiere GIF Recap
Huffington Post - over 4 years
After an excruciatingly long break (nearly 10 months), "American Horror Story" has officially returned with a brand spankin' new season, aptly titled "Asylum." The change in location finds us at the Briarcliff Mental Institution for the criminally insane, run by Sister Jude (Jessica Lange) and Dr. Arthur Arden (James Cromwell), the latter of who appears to be the big bad this season besides Bloody Face. And trust me, "Bloody Face" is a kind name to describe that mug. The episode opened in present day, following lovers Leo and Teresa (Adam Levine and Jenna Dewan, respectively) as they wonder into the now rundown and presumably abandoned Briarcliff. Teresa is an avid paranormal/hauntings enthusiast and Leo just goes along with her so that they can do it in every single haunted place they visit. I have a strong feeling that playing Leo was not that far of a stretch for Adam Levine, but he did OK nonetheless. var src_url="http://pshared.5min.com/Scripts/PlayerSeed.js ...

American Horror Story Season 2: Asylum – Red, White, and Rave!
Boom Tron - over 4 years
Quick hitter here for two more brief teases of American Horror Story, to get people read for season 2′s Asylum (or just weird them out for a few seconds), to go along with the  Glass Prison promo from a couple of days ago. These two, sent over by FX,  are titled “Red Rave” and “White Rave” and like everything Ryan Murphy and crew do with this show, they are both atmospheric and eye catching. Real horror on TV. On a personal level they especially  frighten me because I was a young adult when raves and godawful techno made their return to things young people do, and this brings back memories that I call nightmares. Asylum opens it doors for the second season premiere on FX in October and you will recognize favorites from last season like Jessica Lange returning in brand new roles, accompanied by a host of new players in the American Horror Story fold this season, the likes of which include Jenna Dewan, Clea Duvall, Mark Consuelos, Chris Zylka,  Adam Levine (who has his own little ...
