California native Lillard has been in a wide variety of fare, mostly in feature films …Read On »

Exclusive Interview: THE FOLLOWING star Annie Parisse on playing FBI Special Agent Parker

In Fox’s freshman hit THE FOLLOWING, Monday nights at 9 PM, it seems like Annie Parisse’s character, FBI agent and cult specialist Debra Parker, is one of the good guys. But on this serial killer thriller, created by Kevin Williamson, it’s hard to tell. Did Jacob (Nico Tortorella), a devoted follower of charismatic multiple murderer Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) spare Parker in last week’s episode because he needed leverage against series hero Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon), or did Parker reveal something to Jacob while we weren’t looking? Parisse, of course, is hardly likely to share an answer to that question. …Read On »

The FBI dive deeper into the mind of serial killer Joe Carroll in THE FOLLOWING | (c) 2013 David Fiesbrecth/Fox

Kevin Williamson famously created the big-screen SCREAM franchise and, as executive producer/writer brought L.J. Smith’s VAMPIRE DIARIES novels to television in the successful series still running on the CW, where Williamson had previously created DAWSON’S CREEK. Williamson’s new series creation, THE FOLLOWING, is both bloodier and more serious than his previous work. THE FOLLOWING, which airs on Fox Mondays at 9 PM, deals with haunted FBI Special Agent Ryan Harding, played by Kevin Bacon. Ryan once before put away charming, brilliant serial killer Joe Carroll (James Purefoy), at great psychological and personal cost. In the first episode, Joe escaped from …Read On »

McNally, Oliver Jackson-Cohen Writers: Ben Livingston & Hannah Shakespeare Director: James McTeigue Distributor: Relativity Media Release Date: April 27, 2012  There is a staple of detective police series, where some unhinged reader/viewer stages crimes described in fiction and/or film, and the author – after being ruled out as a suspect – is brought in to help with the investigation.

Movie Review: DETENTION

Stars: Josh Hutcherson, Shanley Caswell, Spencer Locke, Dane Cook, Parker Bagley Writers: Joseph Kahn and Mark Palermo Director: Joseph Kahn Distributor: Samuel Goldwyn Release Date: April 13, 2012 DETENTION is being sold as tongue-in-cheek horror, a la SCREAM. It actually is closer to full-blown parody, with a multitude of filmic targets from the Eighties and Nineties. It is unclear who exactly this is made for, because the people who grew up with the movies referenced here have now seen other parodies, while modern real-life high school students tend to have more recent pop culture frames of reference. As to the …Read On »
