Rating: R Stars: Emma Roberts, Kiernan Shipka, Lucy Boynton, Lauren Holly, James Remar Writer: Osgood Perkins Director: Osgood Perkins Distributor: A24 Release Date (theatrical and VOD): March 31, 2017 If a singer holds a note, no matter how beautifully pitched, for too long, it becomes simply sound. The same holds true of ambiguity in a horror movie. If a filmmaker tries to cast doubt over every character and every action, it can be hard to work up suspense, because it’s unclear who is in danger. This is the case with THE BLACKCOAT’S DAUGHTER, written and directed by Osgood Perkins. There […]Read On »

Based on a short video that went viral in 2013, LIGHTS OUT follows the story of Sophie (Maria Bello) that is obsessed with her imaginary friend Diana. So much so, she has alienated her kids and friends. It turns out that Sophie has been having a relationship with Diana for quite a while but Diana may not be imaginary at all but a […]Read On »

SCREAM QUEENS, which has its two-huor first-season finale Tuesday at 8 PM on Fox Network, is brought to you by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan, the same creative team behind GLEE. Unlike Falchuk and Murphy’s relatively serious other joint horror creation, FX’s AMERICAN HORROR STORY, now in its fifth season, SCREAM QUEENS is simultaneously an homage to and send-up of the slasher flick genre. Set in an upscale university, SCREAM QUEENS conflates the arrival of a devil-masked murderer with the order of the school’s Dean Munch – played by horror-movie icon Jamie Lee Curtis – that the most […]Read On »

SCREAM QUEENS, which premieres Tuesday, September 22 on Fox Network, is the latest brainchild of Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk (who work together on AMERICAN HORROR STORY) and Ian Brennan (who worked with Murphy on GLEE). It’s a serialized, satirical take on the slasher genre, with a snooty sorority being terrorized by a mysterious murder and traumatized by being forced to admit – the horror! – non-snooty pledges. Jamie Lee Curtis stars as Dean Cathy Munsch, who loathes the sorority and mandates that it to become open to anyone who wants to join. Curtis has done all sorts of roles, including […]Read On »

ASSIGNMENT X recently spoke with Wes Craven in this exclusive interview about the […]Read On »

There are only a handful of horror movie heroine/survivors that have made it past a couple of movies with their wits and body parts intact. The short list includes Jamie Lee Curtis who starred as Laurie Strode in four of the HALLOWEEN films, Sigourney Weaver as Ripley in four ALIEN films and now tying their record is Neve Campbell returning for SCREAM 4 (aka SCRE4M) as heroine Sidney Prescott. Sidney has outlasted and outwitted the elusive Ghost Face killer (and killers) in the previous three movies and in this fourth installment she returns to her hometown of Woodsboro for a […]Read On »
