Freaks Trailer Reveals Emile Hirsch as a Disturbed Dad

Tony Sokol Jul 16, 2019

Kim Possible directors find new ways to torture pre-teens in the Emile Hirsch-starring Freaks.

The upcoming film Freaks twists perspectives and ties genres. Shown through the eyes of a 7-year-old girl, the cameras are set low. Co-directed by Kim Possible directors Adam Stein and Zach Lipovsky, the film mixes science fiction, horror and suspense to tell the a very personal story of a sad and dysfunctional family, inspired by the filmmakers' own lives.

Freaks stars Emile Hirsch as Adam, a distraught single dad who locks his 7-year-old daughter in their house to keep her safe. Chloe is played by Lexy Kolker (Shooter), and she listens to her father's warnings about the dangers outside. That is until the ice cream truck shows up.

The Lost Boys Series Casts Everything Sucks Actor Rio Mangini as Sam

The CW series adaptation of The Lost Boys has cast two more actors. Rio Mangini (Everything Sucks) is set to take on the lead role of Sam, Michael’s younger brother, who is being played by Tyler Posey. His “high level of literacy is matched by an equally high level of snark. He seems to be the only one not enchanted by Santa Carla — a sentiment he shares with a pair of local girls, the Frog Sisters.”

Then there’s Del Zamora (Mayans Mc), who will play Frank Garcia, Lucy’s father, “a cantankerous old hippie who owns a beloved local bed and breakfast. In spite of his laid-back appearance, he’s a strict disciplinarian who probably knows more about the dark side of town than he cares to tell.”

The Lost Boys is set in sunny seaside Santa Carla, “home to a beautiful boardwalk, all the cotton candy you can eat…

Trailer For The Amityville Murders, Which Tells the Story of the Family Murdered in the Infamous House

All of the films that have been made about the infamous Amityville house have focused on the creepy horrific ghost stories that surround it after the murders that took place there. This new film, The Amityville Murders, will focus on the story of the family that was murdered in the house prior to the hauntings.

On the night of November 13, 1974, Ronald DeFeo, Jr. took a high-powered rifle and murdered his entire family as they slept. At his trial, DeFeo claimed that “voices” in the house commanded him to kill. This is their story.

The prequel to the haunting of the Amityville home comes from writer and director Daniel Farrand, who has directed several horror-inspired documentaries, such as Crystal Lake Memories: The Complete History of Friday the 13th, Scream: The Inside Story, Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy, The Crystal Lake Massacres Revisited, The Fear Is Real: Reinvestigating the Haunting

Excited For the Charmed Reboot? You Probably Already Know 1 of the New Sisters

  • Popsugar
When The CW's reboot of the cult favorite TV series Charmed was announced, the first question on everyone's minds was who would be playing the "Charmed Ones," the trio of supernaturally chosen sister witches. Instead of casting big-name actresses, the network chose instead to select three actresses who have worked steadily but haven't had breakout roles just yet. The middle sister, Mel Vera, is played by Melonie Diaz, a longtime staple of the indie film world.

Diaz began her career in the New York theater scene, appearing in off-Broadway plays and fringe festivals. This work led to her entry into the film world, with supporting roles in small and independent films. Her early-career credits include the direct-to-video dramedy Double Whammy and 2002's Raising Victor Vargas, which debuted at the Cannes Film Festival.

Skate Kitchen Red Band Trailer Reveals Raw NYC Subculture

Skate Kitchen Red Band Trailer Reveals Raw NYC Subculture
The first trailer for Skate Kitchen has arrived. The movie debuted at the Sundance Film Festival this year and provides a look at a group of female skaters who live and breath skateboarding. This also brings Jaden Smith back to the big screen in what looks to be a relatively low-profile role. This trailer gives us our first real look at the movie, which looks like it might be the exact opposite of what one might expect when they hear about a skateboarding movie. This looks to be a much more emotional, character driven drama that happens to feature passionate skaters at its center, as opposed to being a hollow showcase for skateboarding tricks.

It's not often Hollywood goes in for a movie on skateboarding, with Lords of Dogtown (based on the excellent documentary Dogtown and Z-Boys) being one of the rare exceptions. Not only does this appear to be relatively unique in that respect,

First-time director, Dp, co-star and co-editor Liu explores the down-and-out world he shares with his two best friends in Rockford, Illinois: all three have tumultuous family lives; all three survive by skateboarding. “This device cures heartache,” reads the back of one skateboard.

Heartache is abundant in Liu’s world, and his spectacular skating montages are a euphoric release. What at first seems akin to Lords of Dogtown evolves into a…

Sundance 2018: Skate Kitchen Review

  • HeyUGuys
Author: Ty Cooper

Over the course of time, skateboarding has provided the world with a boundless amount of entertainment. As the sport has ebbed and flowed its way through culture, it has dug an irreplaceable place in the hearts of skaters and non-skaters alike.

Most films about skating tend to not be very good, and it’s almost impossible to see an accurate portrayal of skate life up on the silver screen. Lords of Dogtown and Kids are the few rare exceptions, but their release dates are almost a decade apart. As we barrel our way through the 2000s, it’s time for another movie to take up the mantel for this new generation of cinema; and that film may be Skate Kitchen.

Skateboarding is all about progression; finding new and innovative ways to push the sport. However the skate scene is still plagued by a boys-club mentality and films

Emile Hirsch Opens Up: How the ‘Autopsy of Jane Doe’ Star Survived His Darkest Moment
Emile Hirsch keeps himself busy these days, but he’s not always making movies. The 31-year-old actor recently finished the first draft of a novel, completed a screenplay, and spends a lot of time painting still lifes in his backyard.

Meanwhile, he’s acting in a wider range of projects than ever before. A versatile performer known for immersing himself in his roles, he currently stars opposite Brian Cox in the minimalist horror-drama “The Autopsy of Jane Doe,” opening December 21, and has a range of projects — from a buddy comedy with Jk Simmons to a sweeping China-set period drama with an otherwise Asian cast—scheduled for 2017.

“The work itself is the goal,” he said, settling into Brooklyn eatery Sisters after a long day promoting “Jane Doe” in Manhattan. He was in the midst of a monthlong break from the novel, following the advice of Stephen King’s “On Writing,” his favorite guidebook.
