Richard Donner’s The Omen (1976) is legitimately the scariest movie I ever saw. As a young kid, I made it an hour before I ran screaming from the room and slept with the light on for weeks. I couldn’t get Jerry Goldsmith’s Oscar winning score out of my head, and I had nightmares of the theme, “Ave Satani.” While The Exorcist (1973) is more notorious, The Omen was more subtle, relying on the music, and editing to create horrific moments, rather than persistent gross out shocks. So when I heard a show based on one my favorite horror films was coming to the network that already has one of the best horror shows on TV (A&E/Bates Motel) I was psyched. I was even more psyched after watching the premiere episode “The Beast Rises,” the 33-year old version of myself was similar to the 9-year old; after watching it, I stayed awake another 2 hours unable to sleep.

Mondays are now officially “Horror Night” on A&E as Damien is set to join the already successful Bates Motel in the cable network’s prime time lineup. Damien is based on Richard Donner’s 1976 classic The Omen, which is about a wealthy political family whose adopted son turns out to be the Antichrist. Now a 30-year old war photographer, Damien begins having visions of the childhood he doesn’t remember, a childhood filled with crazy nannies, demonic rottweilers, and a father who was shot trying to kill him. A&E has released three sneak peek clips of Mondays premiere episode.

Damien Beast Trailer Header

Horror on TV is en vogue. Sure, for years cable and network television have been flooded with vampires, werewolves, and zombies, but in the past few years some our favorite movies have gone from the big screen to the small screen. MTV padded its summer schedule with a series based on Wes Craven’s Scream. The folks behind American Horror Story and Glee created a 80s horror homage with Scream Queens in the fall and Starz brought back the cult classic Evil Dead with Bruce Campbell for a 10-episode run last winter in Ash vs. Evil Dead. Rumors of a Friday the 13th series as well as Exorcist one are circulating. A&E, the network that brought Alfred Hitchcock’s classic Psycho to the world of episodic television with Bates Motel in 2013, is now making a show based on the scariest movie I ever saw, Richard Donner’s The Omen, called simply Damien.

Check out the trailer below.

Damien Bradley James

The Damien panel at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con excited audiences on Thursday, when The Walking Dead alum (and a fan favorite) Scott Wilson (Hershel) joined Executive Producer Glen Mazzara (also ex-TWD), along with lead Bradley James (iZombie) and Barbara Hershey playing Ann Rutledge (Once Upon A Time) made an appearance. There they discussed what to expect (and what not to expect), and by the looks of the trailer, it will fit right in following Bates Motel next spring.

First Look Damien TV Show The Omen A&E

When you ask most people what the scariest movie ever made is, the typical answer is The Exorcist. While that is a classic, my pick has always been Richard Donner’s The Omen from 1976.

After two theatrical sequels and a made for TV 4th sequel, The Awakening, The Omen was remade and released (for obvious reasons) on June 6th, 2006 starring Liev Schreiber and Julia Stiles. Now, A&E is bringing Damien Thorn to the small screen in Damien, and a first look video for the show has been released.

Check out the Damien first look video here below.

Once Upon a Time

Once Upon a Time
Season 4 Episode 21: “Mother”
Directed by Ron Underwood
Written by Jane Espenson
Created by Edward Kitsis, Adam Horowitz
Starring Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Morrison, Lana Parrilla, Josh Dallas, Emilie de Ravin, Colin O’Donoghue, Jared Gilmore, Robert Carlyle
ABC
Air Date: Sunday, May 3rd, 2015, 8:00pm

Last week on Once Upon A Time, we delved back into Emma’s (Jennifer Morrison) childhood again to revisit her and Lily’s troubled connection. it seems Lily (The Returned‘s Agnes Bruckner) makes all the wrong life decisions and is very dark, only lightening up when she’s around Emma. In the present, Emma and Regina (Lana Parilla) team up to find Lily and save Robin (Sean Maguire) from Zelena (Rebecca Mader). They are successful on both counts. Well… I guess it depends on how you define success. Zelena is pregnant with Robin’s baby. That is the twist that twisted their hearts – and ours. Snow (Ginnifer Goodwin) and Charming (Josh Dallas) try to appeal to Maleficent (Kristin Bauer van Straten) – to no avail.

Insidious Chapter 2 PosterInsidious Chapter 2
Director: James Wan
Screenwriter: Leigh Whannell
Cast: Patrick Wilson, Rose Byrne, Lin Shaye, Ty Simpkins, Barbara Hershey, Jocelin Donahue, Leigh Whannell, Angus Sampson, Andrew Astor, Lindsay Seim
Blumhouse Productions
Rated PG-13 | 105 Minutes
Release Date: September 13, 2013

Directed by James Wan (Insidious, The Conjuring) and written by Leigh Whannel (Saw), Insidious Chapter 2 is the Back to the Future II of horror films, just replace time travel with astral projection and spirit possession.

Insidious Chapter 2 crisscrosses with the continuity of Wan’s 2011 film, meaning some of the weird, unexplainable moments in Insidious are actually caused by events that take place in Chapter 2.

Before we see what happens after Josh Lambert (Patrick Wilson) rescues his son Dalton from the spirit realm, we travel back to 1986 and meet Josh as a child. His mother (Jocelin Donahue, The House of the Devil) enlists the help of Elisa (Lindsay Seim), a young clairvoyant who wipes his memory of his ability to astral project.

‘Insidious Chapter 2’ Trailer: James Wan’s Follow Up Is More Bone Chilling Than Before

Insidious Chapter 2 Header

James Wan certainly knows how to work with an extremely small production budget. Insidious was produced with a mere $1.5 million budget, and went on to gross $60 million during its theatrical run. With an impressive number like that, and its cryptic ending that left fans wanting more, a sequel was green lit. So Wan, along with film’s stars, Patrick Wilson, Rose Byrne, Barbara Hershey, and Ty Simpkins, came back together for Insidious Chapter 2, and now we are getting a first hand look at what the sequel will look like.

The first trailer for Insidious Chapter 2 has finally arrived, and it shows that the Lamberts aren’t out of the creepy astral protected woods yet; in fact, they may have only gone deeper into it. Check out the trailer here below.

Perhaps the one thing that is noticeably absent from this trailer is the creepy guy with the red face, who has been replaced with spirits that can escape from anyone’s sight.

Movie Review: Black Swan

Three-D   |

Black Swan theatrical movie posterBlack Swan
Directed by Darren Aronofsky
Starring: Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis, Vincent Cassel, Barbara Hershey
Release date: December 19, 2010

Combine the wonderful sounds of orchestral music with the delicate beauty and undulating movements of the ballerinas along with the indelible images that cinema provides for us and we get a truly ambitious film that is a mixture of poetry, sex, feverish dream, nightmares, and psychology. But most impressively it is an innovative fusion — of cinema and ballet — that has been rarely seen in the film medium. Here is one of the most complete films in recent memory. A film well in accord with what makes a film great, ingraining in its foundation a surplus of great performances, visionary direction, emotional music, and surprises emerging from a unique script that is not afraid to approach the unconventional.

And this unconventionality begins when Black Swan perverts all things good that usually have a tendency to comfort us, such as music, ballet, purity, motherhood, and desires. The film is, gloriously but disconcertingly, a catastrophic assault on all of these things, but more emphasis is shown on dethroning elegance from the world of ballet and perverting this world’s time-honored brilliance into something abhorrent. It is easy to accentuate gracefulness. Leave that for lesser talent. The task comes when one needs to find abhorrence in something already made beautiful and elevate it so that it drowns out beauty. Only then will one have fulfilled their duty as a visionary artist. Director Darren Aronofsky does just that by not wanting to embrace the easiness of replicating world class art (the ballet Swan Lake by Tchaikovsky). Instead he eradicates its original beauty and radiance, creating a film alteration of Swan Lake that is equally as stunning. Black Swan is an uncompromising masterpiece.
