Doug Jones is finally getting recognized for his work. It’s not that he’s a newcomer – Jones has been in Hollywood since the ‘80s, and has been in a number of huge projects – but he’s spent most of his career under enormous amounts of prosthetic makeup and complicated costumes. Originally from Indiana, Jones trained both as an actor and as a mime, a background that has allowed him to move persuasively as all sorts of fantastic, otherworldly, and/or alien beings. Filmmaker Guillermo del Toro has worked with Jones for decades, starting with MIMIC in 1997, which had Jones playing […]Read On »

FX’s new series THE STRAIN, Sundays at 10 PM, brings horror back to the vampire mythology. Forget the charmers of TRUE BLOOD, BEING HUMAN, et al, or even Bela Lugosi – these things are hideous, terrifying and breeding like Ebola virus. Worse, they’re in New York City. Center for Disease Control researchers Ephraim Goodweather (Corey Stoll) and Nora Martinez (Mia Maestro) want to combat the plague, but so far aren’t sure how to do so; pawn shop owner Abraham Setrakian (David Bradley), who’s had experience with the creatures before, and city exterminator Vasily Fet (Kevin Durand) may have some ideas.

CD Review: THE HOLE Soundtrack (3000 limited edition)

Kids and the monstrosities often mixed in Joe Dante’s legendary collaboration with Jerry Goldsmith, from mischievous GREMLINS and SMALL SOLDIERS to the atom bomb in MATINEE. One might imagine what Jerry would have done had he been around to peer into THE HOLE for Dante, only to find far more of an ephemeral and psychological threat than he’d been given to handle before with the filmmaker. Yet Dante’s still in very capable musical hands for a low key entry into teen horror, especially with the heavy lifting being done by Javier Navarette, a composer who teamed with Guillermo Del Toro […]Read On »

In ABC’s freshman comedy series THE NEIGHBORS, Wednesdays at 8:30 PM, the Weaver family, headed up by mom Debbie (Jami Gertz) and dad Marty (Lenny Venito), move to an idyllic-looking suburban development – that turns out to be entirely populated by aliens stuck on this planet after they’ve lost their ability to return to home planet Zabvron. The aliens take their names from human sports celebrities, so the Weavers’ next-door neighbors – and tentative new friends – are dubbed Larry Bird (Simon Templeman) and Jackie Joyner-Kersee (Toks Olagundouye). The results are multiculturalism at a wider range than mere terrestrial folks […]Read On »

Release Date: March 25, 2011 There are some worthwhile ideas roaming around inside of SUCKER PUNCH, but like the film’s heroine, they are trapped several layers away from reality. Just to be clear, SUCKER PUNCH’s director/co-writer/story creator Zack Snyder made his feature directorial debut with one of the most compulsively watchable movies ever, the remake of DAWN OF THE DEAD. Although zombie movies […]Read On »
