Pros

Brinkley first gained worldwide fame with her appearances in the late-1970s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issues. She spent 25 years as the face of CoverGirl, has appeared on over 500 magazine covers, and has signed contracts with major brands — both fashion and non-fashion. So she has arguably the most name recognition of any contestant this season.

She has also appeared in several music videos for songs by her second husband, Billy Joel,

Troian Bellisario Understands Fans’ Feelings About ‘Pretty Little Liars’ Finale

Troian Bellisario Understands Fans’ Feelings About ‘Pretty Little Liars’ Finale
In 2017, “Pretty Little Liars” wrapped up seven seasons of mystery and signed off the air with a polarizing ending. If you still need a “spoiler alert” warning, you aren’t truly a fan, so it’s fair to remind everyone that Troian Bellisario’s character Spencer turned out to have an evil twin.

“Pll” fans had a lot of feelings about the big reveal. Some liked the evil twin thing; some compared it to a predictable soap opera twist.

Two years later, Bellisario understands why the ending left some viewers feeling unsatisfied.

“It’s so funny because I knew about it so many years in advance that that’s always where it was going, but I understand that a lot of people felt very sideswiped by it,” Bellisario told Variety at the premiere of her upcoming film, “Where’d You Go, Bernadette.”

“I wish we could have actually brought it in more,

Janel Parrish Dishes on Her Close Friendship With The Perfectionists Costar Sasha Pieterse

The debut season of the Pretty Little Liars spinoff, The Perfectionists, had viewers hooked for more reasons than one: the developing romances, a mysterious murder, and, of course, the amazing fashion. But one of the best parts about the first season is the blossoming friendship between Mona Vanderwaal (Janel Parrish) and Alison Dilaurentis (Sasha Pieterse). The characters were often at odds in Pretty Little Liars, but they begin to form a closer bond in the subsequent series as staff members at Beacon Heights University.

As two reformed mean girls with intertwined pasts, they hope to turn over a new leaf. But they soon find themselves embroiled in another scandal, and they have to join forces while using previous experiences from their Rosewood days to get to the bottom of what's happening at Bhu.

Directed by Orson Oblowitz from a screenplay by Corey Deshon, Trespassers stars Angela Trimbur, Janel Parrish, Fairuza Balk, Jonathan Howard, and Zach Avery. Trespassers is now available On Demand and is also playing theatrically in New York and Los Angeles.

Movie Review – Trespassers (2019)

Trespassers. 2019.

Directed by Orson Oblowitz.

Starring Angela Trimbur, Zach Avery, Janel Parrish, Jonathan Howard, Carlo Rota, Fairuza Balk, Sebastian Sozzi, and Joey Abril.

Synopsis:

Two dysfunctional couples rent a modern luxury desert home for the weekend hoping to sort out their messed-up lives. Just as they are about to settle in for a fun night, a neighbour turns up at their front door saying she has car trouble. And that’s when the murderous trouble really starts.

Orson Oblowitz’s Trespassers is an enraged home invasion flick bursting with dysfunction and hatred. Honestly, I’m a fan of the film’s original title Hell Is Where The Home Is – how better to sell such a pointed domestic siege? Trespassers is as aggressive as The Strangers is horrific. Sounds like my kind of knife-to-your-throat thriller, eh? Typically, yes. Except feuding characters do little to justify our sympathy or investment, emphasizing selfishness

Janel Parrish Opens Up About Her Upcoming "Brutal and Gruesome" Film Trespassers

You might be used to seeing Janel Parrish play Mona in Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists and Margot in To All the Boys I've Loved Before, but the 30-year-old actress enters different territory in her new film Trespassers. The horror film, directed by Orson Oblowitz, centers on two couples - Estelle (Parrish) and Victor (Jonathan Howard), as well as Sarah (Angela Trimbur) and Joseph (Zach Avery) - who are experiencing relationship problems and decide to rent an Airbnb in the desert for a temporary getaway. But the arrival of a mysterious woman (Fairuza Balk) leads to death and chaos as the four friends are forced to fight for their lives against home invaders.

Film Review: ‘Trespassers’

  • Variety
A weekend getaway goes sour even before the corpses start accruing in “Trespassers,” a good-looking indie thriller that’s diverting, but could have used another script draft or two. Depicting two quarrelsome if hard-bodied couples who find themselves in deep peril at a rented desert home, Orson Oblowitz’s film has a leisurely enough buildup that room should have been made for more fully developed characters. Fine-tuning the pileup of eventual violent crises wouldn’t have hurt, either. The result falls short of being especially credible, let alone memorable. Still, this is a polished genre exercise that provides a decent night’s home entertainment. IFC Midnight is opening it July 12 on screens in New York and Los Angeles, simultaneous with its launch on demand.

A brief prelude leaves us no doubt that the owners of a handsome modernist manse in the Mohave meet a very bad end at the hands of three masked,

‘Trespassers’ Review: Fear-Mongering Horror for a Fox News Audience

The film opens on an affluent white couple living close enough to the Mexican border for another character to later say, “You can’t open the door to strangers in today’s society.” They’re awoken by three men in masks made to look like Ms-13 gang members, dragged out, and put in the trunk of a car before being shot dead by the side of the road. The Maga allusions are therefore present from the start with pretty Malibu types falling victim to violent “cholos” for what appears to be no other reason besides the bloodlust Fox News’ fear-mongering editorials have told conservative Boomers is coming if they don’t remain vigilant. We eventually discover they’re actually after a photograph, but that’s just an excuse to let these racist stereotypes shine.

I say this because writer Corey Deshon and director Orson Oblowitz never provide a motive beyond terror in Trespassers.

What’s Coming to HBO Max: Shows, Movies Announced for WarnerMedia Streaming Service (So Far)

What’s Coming to HBO Max: Shows, Movies Announced for WarnerMedia Streaming Service (So Far)
WarnerMedia is diving full-bore into the streaming wars with HBO Max — a subscription service slated to bow next spring, stocked with HBO programming, original series, Warner Bros. movies and library content including the full 10-season run of “Friends.”

There’s no pricing info yet for HBO Max, nor is it fully clear how much content from HBO will be included in the subscription VOD package. The standalone HBO Now service currently costs $15 per month, so presumably HBO Max will cost more if it includes big chunks of what’s on HBO plus a slew of other content.

WarnerMedia says it expects HBO Max to have 10,000 hours of premium video content at launch. On Tuesday, it outlined some of the key shows that will be available.

Exclusive Licensed Content

“Friends”: All 236 episodes of the show, created by David Crane and Marta Kauffman, which aired for 10 seasons on NBC from 1994-

Movie Review – Trespassers (2018)

Trespassers, 2018.

Directed by Orson Oblowitz

Starring Angela Trimbur, Zach Avery, Janel Parrish, Jonathan Howard, Fairuza Balk, Carlo Rota.

Synopsis:

Two couples, each attempting to work through their troubled relationships, rent out a beautiful home in the Mojave desert for a drug and sex fuelled escape from reality. Things quickly turn strange when an unnexpected neigbour drops by asking for help.

A stylish home invasion thriller, Trespassers subverts the expectations of the genre in a gripping way. Even when the plot starts to unravel and the film is left with the bare essentials of blood and neon streaked interiors, the thrill of searching for escape and survival serves the tension very well. Also making use of a well craafted soundtrack of sun soaked pop songs and disturbing effects, the movie brings out an accelerated psycho drama with giallo-esque undertones nicely.

Originally titled Hell Is Where the Home Is, Trespassers sets its

Official Trailer for Orson Oblowitz's Home Invasion Horror 'Trespassers'

"Sometimes you just can't stop what's coming..." IFC Midnight has released an official trailer for an indie horror film titled Trespassers, the latest from filmmaker Orson Oblowitz (The Queen of Hollywood Blvd). The home invasion horror premiered at FrightFest London last year, and also played in Germany's Fantasy Filmfest.

And that's when the murderous trouble really starts. Because without knowing it, these four friends have just landed slap-bang in the wrong violent place at precisely the wrong bloody time. Starring Angela Trimbur, Zach Avery, Janel Parrish, Jonathan Howard, Fairuza Balk, Carlo Rota, Sebastian Sozzi, and Joey Abril. This seems so much like a been-there, done-that horror rehash pulling from You're Next and everything else we've already seen.
