Review: The Haunting Of Hill House is a Beautifully Made Terrifying Horror Drama

The Haunting of Hill House might just be one of the best things created in the horror genre that I’ve ever seen in both film and TV. It’s definitely one of my favorites and I think horror fans will love it.

I’m a big fan of Shirley Jackson’s classic 1959 horror novel that the Netflix series is based on and I’ve enjoyed the film adaptations that have been made over the years. But, this series took that story and created something incredible that I wasn’t expecting.

Not only was the series terrifying, but it was filled with so much heart and emotion. You get to really know the characters in this story and as the story plays out and you get to learn about them and what they went through. The series really makes you care for these characters and I loved the story that revolves around them.

Great Featurette For Netflix's Creepy New Horror Series The Haunting Of Hill House

I can’t wait to watch Netflix’s new horror series The Haunting of Hill House, which is based on the classic 1959 book by Shirley Jackson. That first trailer that was released completely sold me on the series, but today Netflix has a new featurette for us to watch that dives in the terrifying haunted house ghost story that the series will tell. It includes some new footage from the series and there are interviews with members of the cast and crew talking about the horror genre, the complex characters and the human story that they fill, and, of course, how scary the it’s going to be.

The series is a modern reimagining the original story and it comes from director Mike Flanagan (Ouija: Origin of Evil, Gerald’s Game). Here’s the synopsis:

Kevin Spacey Sued for Sexual Battery and False Imprisonment by Male Masseuse

Kevin Spacey Sued for Sexual Battery and False Imprisonment by Male Masseuse
Kevin Spacey is being sued for sexual battery and false imprisonment by an anonymous masseuse who claims he was assaulted by the actor. Allegations against the two-time Oscar winner first emerged last year, leading to his scenes in Ridley Scott’s “All the Money in the World” being completely reshot; he was also fired from “House of Cards,” the Netflix drama on which he’d starred since its inception.

“Spacey assaulted and battered plaintiff by forcing plaintiff to touch his scrotum, testicles, and penis, grabbing plaintiff’s shoulders and pulling him in for an apparent attempted forced kiss, and grabbing plaintiff’s genitalia,” reads the complaint obtained by Deadline.

The incident is alleged to have taken place in Malibu, California two years ago. “During these assaults, plaintiff repeatedly asked Spacey to allow him to leave, but Spacey blocked access to Spacey’s massage table and the door with his naked body,

Film Review: ‘The Clovehitch Killer’

  • Variety
Film Review: ‘The Clovehitch Killer’
There’s nary a drop of blood, but a squirm factor of 10 to much of “The Clovehitch Killer.” This first theatrical feature for director Duncan Skiles, working from a strong screenplay by his past collaborator Christopher Ford, treads familiar ground in eking suspense from the viewpoint of a child who realizes a parent may have a sinister secret life. But this atypical serial-killer thriller distinguishes itself in resisting thrills — let alone any actual violence — till well past its halfway point, instead maximizing the quiet discomfort in a son’s rising suspicion that his outwardly Dagwood-type dad could be a notorious murderer. IFC Midnight plans simultaneous limited-theatrical and digital-formats release of the La Film Festival-premiered film on Nov. 18.

Skiles, Dp Luke McCoubrey, and the visual design contributors lend a vaguely ’70s aura to the goings-on, though the time appears to be “now.” This underlines a sense that the community in question,

Dame Judi Dench Doesn’t Think Kevin Spacey Should’ve Been Cut From Recent Film

You know, they say life never imitates art in a good way and once again, this has been proven true.

While speaking at a film festival in Spain, Dame Judi Dench actually defended Kevin Spacey and seriously argued that he should not’ve been cut from 2017’s All the Money in the World after several allegations of inappropriate sexual behavior surfaced against the actor.

Here’s what Dench had to say:

“I can’t approve, in any way, of the fact – whatever he has done – that you then start to cut him out of films. Are we to go back throughout history now and anyone who has misbehaved in any way, or has broken the law, or has committed some kind of offense, are they always going to be cut out?”

Now, to be fair to the actress, historical revisionism in certain contexts is concerning (think of what George Lucas

La Film Festival Looks for Reinvention With Fall Berth

La Film Festival Looks for Reinvention With Fall Berth
Eight years ago, the La Film Festival hosted June premieres in downtown Los Angeles for a pair of decidedly high-profile movies — “Twilight Saga: Eclipse” and “Despicable Me.”

The festival’s 24th edition, which launches Thursday night, will be very different. Film Independent moved the festival from downtown two years ago to the Arclight venues. Tentpoles are long gone. And it’s moved out of summer and into awards season.

It’s not easy for large-scale, general interest film festivals to make an impact in such a sprawling city, where many people are too busy making movies to watch movies. And some filmgoers focus their attention on the dozens of local niche festivals catering to every interest from horror to French films, with Lgbt-focused Outfest claiming to draw the highest paid attendance of any Los Angeles festival.

The La Film Festival is hoping to regain its place among top local events with more than 200 features,

Leading Hollywood Screenwriter Workspace theOffice Reopens In Santa Monica

The unofficial “screenwriters den” for film and TV screenwriters known as theOffice has reopened its doors in Santa Monica after relocating from its original home in Brentwood.

Not to be confused with the NBC comedy by the same name (although it would be cool if it had the same set up), theOffice is a communal workspace for writers who are working on the next big film screenplay or TV series — and they have a roster of alumni to back it up which include J.J. Abrams, Chris Weitz, as well as Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. star Clark Gregg who wrote What Lies Beneath and Choke. Other alums include Stepmom writer Gigi Levangie, Finding Dory‘s Victoria Strouse, All the Money in the World‘s David Scarpa, and Noah Oppenheim, screenwriter of Jackie and The Maze Runner.

New Kevin Spacey Sexual Assault Case Submitted to L.A. District Attorney's Office
The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department has submitted a sexual assault investigation on Kevin Spacey to the District Attorney's Office for review, Variety has confirmed.

The case was submitted on Tuesday. The D.A.'s office did not provide any details about when the alleged incident occurred. The Sheriff's Department also did not reveal any information about the case.

In April, the Sheriff's Department submitted another investigation involving Spacey to the D.A.'s office. That case involved an allegation of sexual assault from October 1992.

The D.A.'s office has received numerous investigations from the Sheriff's Department, the Los Angeles Police Department, and the Beverly Hills Police Department involving Hollywood figures over the last 10 months. However, the office has yet to file charges in any of them. Many remain under review, but others have also been discarded because the allegations fall outside the statute of limitations.
