Interview: THE POSSESSION composer Anton Sanko finds a new sound for exorcism

THE POSSESSION soundtrack | ©2012 Lionsgate Records

When the word “exorcism” is bandied about, the movie-consecrated sights and sounds that seize us are usually comprised of tubular bells, bloodied crucifixes, shrieking dissonance, the shock of grotesquely wrenched bodies, feverish violins and the tormented cries of pubescent girls and their distraught parents. And while THE POSSESSION might have just a few of these stocks in horror trade, what impresses is the leap of faith it’s taken with the same old song and spew- that being of the demon’s transference to the Jewish religion, as trapped inside a “Dybbuk Box” (which once served as the film’s original title). Found …Read On »

Stars: Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, Arthur Darvill Writer: Chris Chibnall  Director:  Saul Metzstein  Network: BBC America, Online Web Broadcast Original Telecast: Week of August 27– 31, 2012 So before DOCTOR WHO returned to air waves last weekend, there has been a five part web series called “Pond Life” that is a sort of catching up on the Doctor (Matt Smith) and the Ponds since we last saw them. Of course, there is a whole contingency of fans out there that are not so fond of Amy (Karen Gillan), Rory (Arthur Darvill) and especially their daughter River Song (Alex Kingston). I …Read On »

Exclusive Interview: Selma Blair deals with ANGER MANAGEMENT

Selma Blair in ANGER MANAGEMENT - Season 1 | ©2012 FX

ANGER MANAGEMENT has had ten successful episodes on FX basic cable. FX had made an unprecedented deal with the show’s producers, who include star Charlie Sheen – if the half-hour comedy did well enough in its initial ten, FX would pick up ninety more episodes, probably the biggest back-end order in the history of scripted TV. As ANGER MANAGEMENT creator/executive producer Bruce Helford points out, the series is produced at an accelerated speed, shooting two episodes a week. “There’s no real rehearsal for the show,” he explains. “Literally, the actors get the lines, we see the scene on its feet, …Read On »

Stars: Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, Arthur Darvill Writer: Steven Moffat Director:  Nick Hurran Network: BBC America, airs Saturday nights Original Telecast: September 1, 2012 So DOCTOR WHO is finally back on the airwaves with “Asylum of the Daleks”! It is just me or does it feel like it’s been forever since there was a new WHO on, and by the same token doesn’t it feel just a little bit like it’s been no time at all? Timey Wimey Wibbly Wobbly. Please be warned there are spoilers ahead, but some things are too good and have to be talked about! So …Read On »

Stars: Tom Weston-Jones, Kevin Ryan, Ato Essandoh, Anastasia Griffiths, Tanya Fischer, Kiara Glasco, Franka Potente Writer:  Tom Fontana & Will Rokos   Director: Clark Johnson       Network: BBC America, airs Sunday nights Original Telecast: September 2, 2012 COPPER is still holding my attention, and sometimes that’s not the easiest thing in the whole wide world. I have a bad habit of getting up and doing other things when watching television programs that bore me, instead of sitting and faithfully watching every second of an episode. So far COPPER has held my attention, and I watch knowing that there might some subtle …Read On »

Stars: Eddie McClintock, Joanne Kelly, Saul Rubinek, Genelle Williams, Allison Scagliotti, Aaron Ashmore, Jaime Murray, Ashley Williams, Kate Mulgrew, Alessandra Torresani Writer: Benjamin Raab & Deric A. Hughes      Director: Chris Fisher Network: Syfy, Mondays @ 9 PM Airdate: Aug 27, 2012 I like ALICE IN WONDERLAND in pretty much any form you can find it, from “The Looking Glass Wars” to Disney’s ALICE IN WONDERLAND to ultra violent video games; I’m always up for things Alice.  So I am pleased that WAREHOUSE 13 returns to the Alice Liddell (Niamh Wilson) storyline from a previous episode. She’s such a nice …Read On »

TV Review: WAREHOUSE 13 – Season 4 – “No Pain, No Gain”

Joanne Kelly in WAREHOUSE 13 - Season 4 - "No Pain, No Gain" | ©2012 Syfy/Steve Wilkie

Stars: Eddie McClintock, Joanne Kelly, Saul Rubinek, Genelle Williams, Allison Scagliotti, Aaron Ashmore, Jaime Murray, Ashley Williams, Kate Mulgrew, Alessandra Torresani Writer: Nell Scovell     Director: Jay Chandrasekhar  Network: Syfy, Mondays @ 9 PM Airdate: Aug 20, 2012 So last review I was ragging on WAREHOUSE 13 because I felt the series is becoming too campy, and isn’t striking the right balance between the comedic elements of the show and the serious elements. In “No Pain, No Gain”, however, I have to say that the episode was well done, and all of the more comedic moments really work well and …Read On »

TV Review: HELL ON WHEELS – Season 2 – “Scabs”

Anson Mount in HELL ON WHEELS - Season 2 - "Scabs" | ©2012 AMC/Chris Large

Stars: Anson Mount, Colm Meaney, Common, Dominique McElligott, Tom Noonan, Christopher Heyerdahl Writer:  Chris Mundi Director: Catherine Hardwicke     Network: AMC, airs Sunday nights Original Telecast: September 2, 2012 HELL ON WHEELS has some surprising character study in the latest episode, “Scabs”. There’s a lot going on that with certain characters that I was honestly amazed by, simply because of who the characters have been up to this point in the first and now second seasons of the show. So the big stink of this episode is that the Sioux are threatening the continued building of the railroad as it is …Read On »

TV Review: HELL ON WHEELS – Season 2 – “Slaughterhouse”

Anson Mount in HELL ON WHEELS - Season 2 - "Slaughterhouse" | ©2012 AMC/Chris Large

Stars: Anson Mount, Colm Meaney, Common, Dominique McElligott, Tom Noonan, Christopher Heyerdahl Writer:  Jami O’Brien & Bruce Marshall Romans   Director: Sergio Mimica-Gezzan    Network: AMC, airs Sunday nights Original Telecast: August 26, 2012 So I’ve compared HELL ON WHEELS to DEADWOOD in the past, as have many people. The two series are very tonally similar and they both take place in rugged, rustic western settings. So, it was only a matter of time until someone gets fed to pigs on this show. It seems like a natural thing. In DEADWOOD, Woo’s pigs were a constant place for body disposal, so it’s …Read On »

At a press function, Seymour takes a few moments to discuss the piece, as well as her other projects as both actress and producer. ASSIGNMENT X: What is LAKE EFFECTS about?
