“Blood, Sweat and Fears”

El Rey Network announced today the launch of a new series of specials featuring short films from stand-out independent filmmakers from around the world. “The People's Network Showcase” will air as a 2-hour quarterly programming event.

“The People’s Network Showcase: Horror Edition”, hosted by the master of horror films John Carpenter, and featuring 10 short horror films submitted by rising independent filmmakers, will debut on Sunday, October 30, 2016 at 8pm ET, with an encore airing at 10pm ET. It will air as part of El Rey’s month long celebration of Horror “Blood, Sweat and Fears.”

“When I started El Rey I wanted the network to provide a new pipeline for creators. My roots are in independent filmmaking and I believe in providing opportunities to people working outside of the studio system,” said El Rey Network founder and Chairman Robert Rodriguez. “We’ve discovered these terrific short films by very talented makers and with this on-air special hosted by my friend John Carpenter, we can help get them noticed.”

“Whether for digital or linear, programming is no longer dictated from the top down. Audiences today know what they want, and in many cases are able to make it themselves,” said El Rey Network President and G.M. Daniel Tibbets. “The People’s Network is our disruptive tool to demolish the wall between Professional and User Generated Content.”

“The People’s Network” celebrates filmmakers and artists from diverse cultures by giving them a platform to showcase their work. The new on-air series will feature interviews with the filmmakers and special vignettes of current working industry professionals who share the behind the scenes secrets of their craft to inspire future creators. Each collection of films that airs will be curated by genre or central story theme.

Movie Review: #MissSloane

The political drama Miss Sloane fails to lobby us into Oscar territory.
Review by Matt Cummings
In a time when women were supposed to be leading our country, Miss Sloane arrives to remind us of what could have been. Unfortunately, this message about a headstrong female Washington lobbyist loses us early with an unappealing director, a paper-thin plot, and suffers from a ton of convenient realism. If the good (but not impressive) performances weren't there to buffer these and many other gaps, we might have found ourselves voting for impeachment.

For Washington lobbyist Elizabeth Sloane (Jessica Chastain), life is about getting her clients what they want from the halls of Congress. Her boss Dupont (Sam Waterston) will sleep with NRA types, fudge travel records, and bully smaller firms into submission if it means a hearty paycheck at day's end. But when Sloane leaves the company to push Gun Control legislation with one of those smaller firms, Dupont turns to his bulldog Co…
