The 15 Best Horror Movies of 2017

28 minutes ago

Tom Beasley examines the best horror movies of 2017, from sharp social satire to an evil clown…

The reaction to 2017’s horror movie slate has, bizarrely, been one of surprise. It’s as if a year of impressive scary movies is somehow a rarity, when in fact the genre has consistently delivered strong movies in recent years.

What is true, however, is that 2017 has been an uncommonly good year for the darker side of cinema. The mainstream corner of horror has produced its most successful movie of all time, while the arthouse world has also delivered the goods and there’s even an Oscar contender in the genre.

But first, let’s head Down Under for one of the nastiest films of the year…

15. Killing Ground

Australia is home to some of the most grim, macabre movies in modern cinema, from Justin Kurzel’s troubling true crime tale Snowtown to the tourism slasher Wolf Creek. »

Ralph McQuarrie’s art comes to life in concept trailer for The Star Wars

46 minutes ago

As any hardcore Star Wars fan will know, George Lucas owes much of the visual design of the Star Wars saga to legendary artist Ralph McQuarrie, who was commissioned by the filmmaker to produce a series of concept illustrations for the-then titled The Star Wars as Lucas sought to make his ambitious space opera a reality.

Now a group of student filmmakers from Orlando’s Dave School have used McQuarrie’s artwork to produce a concept trailer for The Star Wars, which brings to life this early vision of the galaxy far, far away. Check it out here…

Top 10 WWE Wrestlers of 2017

1 hour ago

Liam Hoofe with his countdown of the 10 best WWE superstars of 2017…

2017 has been an interesting time to be a wrestling fan. The year started off with a controversial Royal Rumble victory for Randy Orton (spoiler alert: he’s not on this list), made us all cry our eyes out when The Undertaker took his last ride at WrestleMania 33, and then left all of our jaws on the floor when Jinder Mahal was crowned WWE champion.

So in a year which has featured Jinder as WWE champion, the debut of the house of horrors match and the return of The Great Khali, which wrestlers have been a shining beacon of hope for us fans? The roster is arguably more talented than it has ever been, and from an in-ring perspective, the company has had one of its most consistent years to date. We’ve seen the rise, and fall of many new stars, »

Justice League cinematographer backtracks on Superman’s black suit comments

3 hours ago

Earlier this month, Justice League cinematographer Fabian Wagner was quoted as revealing that scenes were shot for the DC blockbuster featuring Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel in his black costume from the Death of Superman comic book arc, only to end up on the cutting room floor.

Well, it seems that may not have been the case after all, as Wagner has now backtracked on his original comments somewhat, telling Collider that while the black suit did exist, it may only have been used during costume tests:

“Yeah you know actually, to be totally honest I just can’t remember if we were shooting it as a test or if we were actually shooting it as a full scene with the suit. I definitely shot it, but I just can’t remember if it was more of a test or a full scene. But definitely seeing the black costume was great. »

The Most Disappointing – Star Wars: The Last Jedi

3 hours ago

Anghus Houvouras on Star Wars: The Last Jedi (major spoilers follow)…

It’s all been done. That song by Canada’s eighth best band Barenaked Ladies was bouncing around my head as I watched the latest installment of the Star Wars saga. A galaxy, far, far away isn’t nearly as exciting as it used to be. Not since Disney bought the franchise and turned it into an annual blockbuster money printing machine. The series has been floundering ever since the lackluster Star Wars: The Force Awakens opened in 2015, followed by the even more formulaic and haphazard Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The Last Jedi is the third and most salient example that it’s all been done and Disney has little interest in doing anything differently.

Trust me when I say, this sucks. Disliking things that are insanely popular is fine, but when you write columns »

4 hours ago

The CW has announced that it is developing a new psychological thriller series entitled Lady in the Mask, which is being penned by Thomas Brandon and produced by Amblin TV and CBS Television.

According to Deadline, Lady in the Mask takes place in a near future where people are able to back-up their brains to a hard drive. It “centers on a woman who awakens in the hospital after a suspicious car accident and learns her memory was damaged and restored from a two-year-old ‘back-up.’ As she tries to return to her seemingly loving husband, high-profile job in her family’s tech Vc firm, and otherwise normal life, the details about her missing years begin to contradict each other, leading her to believe she’s being manipulated by someone close to her, that the accident was no accident, and that she’s at the center of a much larger conspiracy… »
