Long-Awaited Horror Indie ‘The Blackcoat’s Daughter’ Gets Release Date, Photos

Osgood Perkins made his directorial debut this past October with the staid, eerie Netflix release I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House, except not really. When attendees at the Toronto International Film Festival lined up to catch that film’s world premiere back in September, many were reminiscing about the proceedings one year earlier, where Perkins’ real directorial debut February screened. The horror indie made a positive impression on critics and landed a deal with boutique distributor A24, but floated around post-production purgatory for the entirety of 2016. But at last, parties intrigued by murmurs of this creepy festival standout will get their wish — the film since retitled The Blackcoat’s Daughter finally has a release date.

‘Nerve’ Trailer: Dave Franco and Emma Roberts Teach Us the Dangers of the Internet

by Britt Hayes May 11, 2016 @ 8:09 PM
Judging by a trailer that seemingly reveals just about everything (including the bodies of its leads), Nerve takes the premise of indie thrillers like Cheap Thrills and the lesser-seen 13 Sins and re-frames it with the treacherous world of a little place called The Internet. With that particular distinction in mind, it shouldn’t surprise you that Nerve was helmed by Ariel Schulman and Henry Joost, the directing duo behind Catfish (the movie, not the TV show).

The fun of American Horror Story (if there’s any left to be had) lies in charting the actors that resurface from year to year, some taking central roles in each installment, and others weaving intermittently. Coven and Freak Show star Emma Roberts apparently missed out on her chance for Hotel, but will likely return for another round in Season 6, it seems.

The New ‘Scream Queens’ Trailer Gets Pretty Evil

Since an ancient curse forces Ryan Murphy to produce as many new shows as humanly possible, he had find something to fill the Glee-shaped hole in Fox’s schedule or risk losing his soul to that ancient Sumerian demon he summoned all those years ago. The new Scream Queens trailer makes his new series look like the strange halfway point between Glee and American Horror Story, which is appropriate since he also created the latter.

Emma Roberts Shares Her Ghost-Combating Tips With Seth Meyers

by Kate Erbland May 13, 2014 @ 9:50 AM
Emma Roberts has spent plenty of time working with ghosties and ghoulies on FX's various incarnations of 'American Horror Story,' but that doesn't mean she's somehow immune to being scared right out of her skin. In fact, the young actress just might be a bit more sensitive to the whole thing than people who don't traffic in jump scares and loud noises and terrifying prophecies on television series. But Roberts developed some tactics to get away from spirits scot-free, and she was more than happy to share those tips with 'Late Night' host Seth Meyers last night.

How James Franco and 'Palo Alto' Director Gia Coppola Brought Teen Angst to the Screen

While the films of Sofia Coppola often examine the world of young wealth -- see 'The Bling Ring' and 'Marie Antoinette' -- her niece, Gia, approaches coming of age from a different angle: the grittier, if you will, emotional lives teens lead while growing up in rural Palo Alto.
"I had just finished college and was kind of reminiscing on those years of high school," she told ScreenCrush in an interview. "I had enough distance where I could kind of look at it nostalgically," and it was the realistic experiences in James Franco's collection of short stories, titled 'Palo Alto,' she wanted to bring to the screen for her first directorial effort.
