Composer Nathan Whitehead continues to take THE PURGE in ELECTION YEAR – Interview

The past few years have been a field day for dark, rhythm-driven suspense scores. But when many of these pulsating killing fields have a tendency to merge into one big murder dome, how does one keep the mayhem playing with a sense of fresh musical blood? Just ask Nathan Whitehead, a composer who’s consistently been playing his brutally cool way of surviving one Purge after the other with his action-horror identity intact. In creating what’s easily the most interesting Blumhouse franchise (or at least until they turn WHIPLASH into one), director-writer James DeMonaco took the idea of Classic Trek’s “Red Hour” […]Read On »

Robert McDowell and Andy Hull vocally unleash the SWISS ARMY MAN – Interview

When you’re marooned on an ocean-lost island, many things come to mind in the madness of utter isolation. For the increasingly suicidal Hank (Paul Dano), it’s the Greek chorus (by way of Polynesian chant) of American composers Andy Hull and Robert McDowell. Their harmonies are full of tuneful lament and poetic irony, vocalese that turns to self-accusing song, all telling Hank to take The Big Dive. But just before he steps over the edge, Hank’s isolation is interrupted by the appearance of the very Manny (Daniel Radcliffe), whose very dead condition doesn’t mean that this can’t become the beginning of […]Read On »

The 2013 horror film THE CONJURING was an account of married paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren, played respectively by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga, looking into a case of demonic possession tormenting the Perron family.

This is the subject of THE […]Read On »

RAIDERS!: Documentary directors Jeremy Coon and Tim Skousen roll a home-made boulder of Indy boys to men – Interview

It’s a story that even Hollywood couldn’t make up, and a film urban legend until it was finally proven to be true. No doubt hundreds, if not thousand of children had their lives irreversibly altered upon their first, then repeated viewings of RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, setting creative life goals in a way that went beyond play acting Indy in their friends’ back yards. But for a ragtag group of still-pubescent youths led by “indy” Chris Strompolos and director Eric Zala, it actually meant spending their lives straight into college re-creating RAIDERS shot-for-shot. Put away into their private warehouse, […]Read On »
