Apple's “Selena Gomez: My Mind & Me" to Premiere on November 4th

#Oculus On Blu-ray August 5

From the Producers of Paranormal Activity and Insidious , The Terror Arrives on Digital HD™ July 29 and on Blu-ray™ and DVD August 5. Seeing is deceiving in this disturbingly original horror flick that reflects heart-stopping terror as you’ve never imagined! It’s been ten years since the lives of siblings Tim (Brenton Thwaites; Maleficent) and Kaylie Russell (Karen Gillan; “Doctor Who”) were shattered and Tim was convicted of murdering their parents. Now released from a mental institution, Tim wants to move on, but his sister has other plans. Kaylie blames their childhood nightmare on the Lasser Glass—an antique mirror with a grisly history—which she intends to destroy by any means possible, even as the mysterious entity continues to cast sinister spells on anyone who gazes into it. Blu-ray Special Features: ● Deleted Scenes with Optional Commentary by Mike Flanagan and Trevor Macy ● Inside The Mirror: Creating Oculus ● Original Oculus 33 Minute Short Film with Optional Commen

The Game of Superhero Chicken Continues

Here's why Marvel and DC's game of Scheduling Chicken needs to end soon.  Story by: Matt Cummings While Captain America: The Winter Soldier continues to rake in the box office bucks, an impending release continues to garner almost as much attention.  As we all know, a certain DC film will be premiering on May 6th, 2016 which is the same date for the next Captain America film.  Recently, Dan Fellman, President of Domestic Distribution for WB, said the cinematic version of Chicken is still on schedule over at his studio: “It doesn’t make a lot of sense for two huge superhero films to open on the same date but there is a lot of time between now and 5/6/16. However at this time, we are not considering a change of date for ‘Batman vs. Superman.’”  There's several levels which are readily apparent here, the first of which is more machismo than anything.  After the big delay by Director Zack Snyder, Warner Bros. is now locked into a brass knuckles fight with Marvel t

Oculus Review: Loses Steam After a Rough Start

The intricate supernatural thriller Oculus loses steam after a rough start. Review by: Matt Cummings We've been in the middle of a sort of horror film renaissance, gifted with low-budget but wonderfully-terrifying fare, such as 2013's The Conjuring and the Insidious series, as well as 2012's Sinister . Meanwhile, lesser films like The Marked Ones continue to miss the point about what really scares. Their efforts to hunt for low hanging fruit in the form of standard shock are surrounded by truly boring plot lines. The Mike Flanagan flick Oculus is caught somewhere between them, boasting several strong points but mired in frustrating third act. Orphaned siblings Tim (Brenton Thwaites) and Kaylie Russell (Karen Gillan) have a dark secret: their father  (Rory Cochrane) and mother (Katie Sackhoff) were victims of possession by an antique mirror. Initially written off as murder/suicide, Kaylie doubts the reports and sets off to prove the mirror's true natu

Battlestar Galactica Movie Gets New Life

The project at Universal is apparently moving forward.  By: Matt Cummings If you caught the SyFy run of Battlestar Galactica , you were treated to something special. Complete with graying loyalties and intense action, the series followed a race of humans defeated by the technologically superior Cylons. The series brought a grittiness and unpredictability that kept fans watching right up to the lame series finale in 2007. Apparently, someone took notice. According to multiple sources, Universal is developing a film reboot of the series, and have hired Transcendence writer Jack Paglen to script the screenplay. Paglen is also involved in Ridley Scott’s Prometheus sequel for Fox that starts production this fall.  Transcendence  starring Johnny Depp and Rebecca Hall opens on April 18th. Original Galactica creator Glen Larson will produce the reboot. While we're happy to see this happening in concept, we'll wait to hear about a director and cast before we render a j
