10 Scariest Moments in Non-Horror Movies

  • Cinelinx
Horror movies aren’t the only films that can cause you to have nightmares. Here’s a look at some of the most frightening moments from movies that aren’t horror films.

Terror and fear are common traits in all movies, not just horror films. Frightening moments happen in everything from children’s films to blockbuster action flicks. The reason is that fear is an effective tool for filmmakers. First, it is easy to create. Dark picture quality, demonic makeup or special effects, even a simple jump scare can do the trick. As compared to genuine emotional connection to characters or a film’s themes, creating scares doesn’t tax the script too heavily. Furthermore, fear is a very effective way to connect with the audience. If they are scared, there is a vulnerability that the filmmakers can take advantage of to create a more emotional viewing experience.

Chicago – Bill Pullman is one of Hollywood’s treasures. The rogue-ish and handsome actor has been plying his trade for over 30 years, in such classics as “Spaceballs,” “A League of Their Own,” “While You Were Sleeping,” “Independence Day,” “Lost Highway” and the recent “Battle of the Sexes.” His latest film, which he previewed at the 53rd Chicago International Film Festival with director Jared Moshe, is a western called “The Ballad of Lefty Brown.”

Pullman was born in Hornell, New York, and began his career as an acting instructor at Montana State University, where his students encouraged him to start a film career. He made his debut in “Ruthless People” (1986) and began his long and successful career. He has also done Broadway stage (“The Goat, or Who is Sylvia?”) and TV (“1600 Penn”), and will appear in the film “Lbj,

Patricia Arquette to Make Feature Directorial Debut with “Love Canal”

Arquette in “Boyhood

Patricia Arquette is stepping behind the camera. Deadline reports that the Oscar-winning actress is set to make her feature debut with “Love Canal,” a drama based on “The Canal,” an upcoming documentary. She’s also among the project’s producers.

“Love Canal” will follow an “extraordinary group of working class housewives from Love Canal, New York who took on the government and the chemical industry in the ‘70s,” the source writes. “With no training or support, they got the President himself to move their families from homes built on lots where massive amounts of toxic chemicals had been dumped.” Brad Desch (“Fathers & Daughters”) penned the script.

Arquette has previously directed for the small screen. She helmed two episodes of “Medium,” a series she starred in from 2005–2011.

After winning an Oscar in 2015 for “Boyhood,” Arquette said, “To every woman who gave birth, to every taxpayer and citizen of this nation, we have fought for everybody else’s equal rights. It’s our time to have wage equality once and for all and equal rights for women in the United States of America.” The feminist also sounded off on gender inequality in Kamala Lopez’s 2016 doc “Equal Means Equal,” an exploration of how women are treated in the U.S. today.

True Romance,” “Lost Highway,” and “CSI: Cyber” are among Arquette’s best-known credits. Her upcoming films include “Permanent,” a coming-of-age comedy written and directed by “Hung” creator Colette Burson, and “The Bell Jar,” Kirsten Dunst’s feature debut.

For more information about the doc “Love Canal” is inspired by, check out “The Canal’s” crowdfunding page. The project is currently in post-production, according to IMDb.

Patricia Arquette to Make Feature Directorial Debut with “Love Canal” was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

David Lynch as Actor: How His Onscreen Persona Has Evolved From ‘The Cleveland Show’ to ‘Lucky’

David Lynch as Actor: How His Onscreen Persona Has Evolved From ‘The Cleveland Show’ to ‘Lucky’
Here’s a strange thought: David Lynch has been in front of the camera more often in the last 10 years than he’s been behind it. Though rarely thought of as an actor in the same manner as other on-camera directors, Lynch has appeared not only in several of his own projects — most recently the “Twin Peaks” revival, in which his Gordon Cole became one of the main characters — but an expectedly far-flung range of others as well. Though he only lends his voice to some of them, he imbues each role with his nonpareil essence.

Lynch made no feature-length films or TV series in the 11 long years between the release of “Inland Empire” and this new “Twin Peaks,” but he did grace us with his presence onscreen several times. Most prominently — and weirdly, and hilariously — that

‘Twin Peaks: The Return’: Even David Lynch’s Cinematographer Can’t Explain What It All Means
Peter Deming is at a slight disadvantage when talking about “Twin Peaks: The Return” compared to most other cinematographers discussing their latest work. He’s only familiar with the project as one long feature film, having gone into production with a 500-plus page script that didn’t have episode breaks, rather than the 18 episodes that Showtime aired this year.

“We also shot it like a feature film,” said Deming in an interview with IndieWire. “When you went to a location, you shot all the action that took place at that location. It’s different than TV – there’s no episode scripts, there’s one director, there’s one crew. So we broke it down and scheduled it like a feature film.”

This “block shooting” approach is impossible for most television shows, which are still being written when production begins on the first episode of the season. It’s a far more efficient approach,

Twin Peaks: was this the long, perfect goodbye from David Lynch?

Twin Peaks: the Return was the culmination of Lynch’s life’s work. But its last, weary moments were surely proof that he’s bowing out on us

David Lynch’s debut Eraserhead was the greatest home movie ever made. Shot over five years in a disused stable block behind the American Film Institute where the director was living at the time, it was painstakingly constructed frame by frame by a group of committed friends – the very definition of a labour of love. Exactly 40 years later, Lynch has just completed his most personal project since. Twin Peaks: the Return may have had a starry cast, cutting-edge digital effects and an 18-hour run time. But at heart, it was just another home movie: the work of an artist coming full circle, incorporating everything he’s learned in four decades as a filmmaker back into the hands-on, Diy template he established with his first film.

Why 'Twin Peaks: The Return' Was the Most Groundbreaking TV Series Ever

Why 'Twin Peaks: The Return' Was the Most Groundbreaking TV Series Ever
When some phrases pass through the prism of Twin Peaks, you can never hear them the same way again. "Damn good coffee" is one; "Gotta light?" is another. We'll submit a third candidate, one that the just-concluded third season of David Lynch and Mark Frost's supernatural murder-mystery masterpiece has marked for permanent retirement from the critical vocabulary: "Like nothing else on television." The TV landscape remains full of singular, spectacular shows, Peak TV fatigue be damned. But just as the original Twin Peaks inspired visionary showrunners from David Chase

"Twin Peaks," Episode 16 Recap: You've Made My Heart So Full

  • MUBI
Twin Peaks Recap is a weekly column by Keith Uhlich covering David Lynch and Mark Frost's limited, 18-episode continuation of the Twin Peaks television series."Finally," says the One-Armed Man a.k.a. Phillip Gerard (Al Strobel) about midway through Part 16 of Mark Frost and David Lynch's Twin Peaks revival, right after a certain FBI Special Agent returns to the world of the living. It's been 13 episodes since we've seen full trace of Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan), though even then he wasn't entirely himself. (Being trapped for 25 years in the otherworldly Black Lodge has a way of tempering certain personality traits.) Now, however, he's "one hundred percent" (in his estimation, anyway), and there's certainly plenty of giddy pleasure to be had watching the energetic, Boy Scout-like Cooper of old take charge. But that presumes that this is the Dale Cooper of old, and it quickly becomes apparent that that's not the case.

Twin Peaks Recap is a weekly column by Keith Uhlich covering David Lynch and Mark Frost's limited, 18-episode continuation of the Twin Peaks television series.It's James Hurley's (James Marshall) birthday and he wants a present. Not that he's demanding it—no, no. James is cool. He's always been cool. So in that affable way of his that can be equal parts endearing and insufferable, he asks his going-on-23-year-old coworker, Freddie Sykes (Jake Wardle)—a U.K. to U.S. transplant who, like James, is a security guard at the Great Northern Hotel—to explain why he's always wearing a green gardener's glove on his right hand. "Tell me the story," he says to Freddie. The young man obliges the birthday boy with a captivating tale ("you ain't gonna believe me anyway," he prefaces) of a man in the sky called The Fireman, who told him to buy the glove,

Twin Peaks season 3 is exquisite, but why am I so unenthused by it?

Samuel Brace on Twin Peaks season 3…

Twin Peaks season 3 (The Return) had been something fans of the show, and of David Lynch, were dreaming of for years, and its revival has provided television viewers with some truly incredible moments, and some seriously beautiful filmmaking. But there is something about the resurrected series that just isn’t working. There is something about it that is leaving me a little indifferent to its existence.

David Lynch is a master, one of the few left in the world of cinema. His content has enraptured us for decades, inspiring a thought process regarding his work matched by very few in the business. There is nothing quite like a Lynch movie or episode of Lynch TV. The likes of Mulholland Drive (my personal favourite Lynch film), Blue Velvet, and The Lost Highway have so much to offer for those willing to have their minds twisted

"Twin Peaks," Episode 13 Recap: What Is This, Kindergarten?

  • MUBI
Twin Peaks Recap is a weekly column by Keith Uhlich covering David Lynch and Mark Frost's limited, 18-episode continuation of the Twin Peaks television series.Much of David Lynch's work is about regression, or regressiveness, about people who are most comfortable when indulging (really, hiding behind) their baser instincts. An acid-jazz saxophonist with murder on his mind might take refuge in the body and soul of a teenage delinquent (Lost Highway), or a midwestern girl who has played and lost the Hollywood game might concoct a candy-colored dream-life in which she finally attains Tinseltown stardom (Mulholland Dr.). But these escapes always prove to be traps, and cyclical ones at that. What goes around comes around. What has happened before will happen again. Even Blue Velvet's Dorothy Vallens (Isabella Rossellini), finally liberated from her abusive sexual relationship with Frank Booth (Dennis Hopper), "still can see blue velvet through my tears.

The 50 Best Films of the ’90s, From ‘Pulp Fiction’ to ‘Groundhog Day’

  • Indiewire
The 50 Best Films of the ’90s, From ‘Pulp Fiction’ to ‘Groundhog Day’
The ’90s were a moment of tremendous upheaval in international cinema. Here in America, the revolt against Hollywood’s bland output a decade earlier had resulted in a small window in which American independent cinema became commercially viable and started seeping into more mainstream fare. Young and exciting directors, most of whom are now A-listers, were given resources and able to make multiple films. Meanwhile, Hollywood’s big commercial films were in the hands of directors like Spielberg, Bigelow, Verhoeven, Woo and De Palma, as franchises continued to be invented rather than recycled.

On the international scene, the Iranian New Wave unloaded a treasure trove of new films, the great run of Hong Kong cinema was peaking and maturing, three great autuers completely upended how films in Taiwan were made, and a pair of Danish directors with a dogma wanted to change how every film was made.

More than anything,

Sometimes, after witnessing a work of art that truly challenges and moves us, it's easier to be flippant than philosophical. So let's get the flippancy out of our system right away. After all, following an hour of television like last night's episode of Twin Peaks, people are bound to have questions. "What did I just witness?", for example. Or "How did David Lynch and Mark Frost convince Showtime to put that on the air?" Or "Does Trent Reznor have any idea how cool he looks in a pair of sunglasses?

The (Twin) ‘Peaks’ Are Alive With the Sound of Dean Hurley’s Music: A Chat With David Lynch’s Longtime MD

The (Twin) ‘Peaks’ Are Alive With the Sound of Dean Hurley’s Music: A Chat With David Lynch’s Longtime MD
On “Part 6” of David Lynch’s “Twin Peaks: The Return,” the much heralded look at the surreal Pacific Northwest town 25 years after the mysterious murder of Laura Palmer, the character of Richard Horne — warning: spoilers ahead — recklessly runs over and kills a young child. That this heart-pounding moment was accompanied by the equally unsettling new music of legendary composer and Lynch regular Angelo Badalamenti was reason enough for “Twin Peaks” music director, sound supervisor, and re-recording mixer Dean Hurley to come out of hiding.

Hurley, a longtime collaborator of Lynch’s — maybe the most trusted — is the man responsible for co-writing and performing pieces of music for Showtime’s “Twin Peaks” – “SubDream” and “Snake Eyes” with the director and/or his son, Riley Lynch – and co-selecting new-school indie acts such as Chromatics, Sharon Van Etten, and Au Revoir Simone to play the local Bang Bang Bar at the end of each “part” (as well as appear
