LOS ANGELES, May 21, 2013 – Alfred Hitchcock is back in all his enigmatic and suspenseful glory. Well, kind of.

“Hitchcock” was recently released internationally, following a relatively tranquil winter run in the U.S. and Canada. It’s likely to be a quiet success.

Benedict Cumberbatch to Headline Short Thriller ‘Little Favour’

Benedict Cumberbatch to Headline Short Thriller ‘Little Favour’ | THRILLER FILM CODES & CONVENTIONS | Scoop.it
'Sherlock' and 'Star Trek Into Darkness' star Benedict Cumberbatch is starring in the short film 'Little Favour', an action-thriller about a retired government operative.

 

Fans of the Sherlock TV mini-series – as co-created by current Doctor Who head showrunner Steven Moffat – know all about its star, Benedict Cumberbatch. The rest of the world will get a crash-course on who this guy is – and why he’s inspired such a rabid fanbase – since Cumberbatch portrays the “mystery” antagonist inStar Trek Into Darkness (which is now playing in theaters).

 

However, the actor will also soon get to work on a smaller-scale project; a short film, titled (appropriately) Little Favour. The action-thriller will pair Cumberbatch opposite Nick Moran – who played one of the Snatchers in the final two Harry Potter films – and is described as follows:

 

It’s been 7 years since [WALLACE, played by Benedict Cumberbatch] left Her Majesty’s service and 10 years since the American counter-part who became his friend, saved his life on a joint mission in Iraq. He’s migrated his skill set into a lucrative business while managing to keep his secret battle with PTSD under wraps. One day, while finally deciding to try his hand at a functional relationship, his old friend JAMES cashes in his chip and asks a LITTLE FAVOUR. How could he refuse when he owes the man his life?

 

Little Favour is being written and directed by first-timer Patrick Victor Monroe, with fellow newcomers Adam Ackland and Ben Dillon producing through the SunnyMarch production company (which the duo formed last year). Principal photography will take place in London, thanks to funds raised through Indiegogo (you can still make a contribution on the site).

Adam Ackland [bessie mate of the 'Batch] tweeted last week that Cumberbatch will also have a Producer credit on the film.

Taking Horror Interactive: Neal Edelstein on Haunting Melissa | Filmmaker Magazine | THRILLER FILM CODES & CONVENTIONS | Scoop.it

'As the producer of films like The Ring and Mulholland Drive, Neal Edelstein is no stranger to horror films and thrillers. And with his new project, Haunting Melissa, he’s moved beyond traditional pictures with his first immersive production for iPad and iPhone. Available for free in the App Store, Haunting Melissa centers around the search for a girl who vanished from the farmhouse where her mother had earlier gone insane, but this story is told in a succession of videos released to the viewer in seemingly random bursts. The temporal extension – and unexpected timing – of the narrative through these push notifications brings the story into viewers’ lives over time, while the intimate viewing method of holding the screen and listening through headphones brings it into close physical proximity. Taking these characteristics of the viewing experience into account was one of the prime creative directives of producing Haunting Melissa, as Edelstein explains....'

Very interesting idea of how to capture the attention of an app-happy society. Horror film, like all film genres, must adapt to today's increasingly technological world. I think this idea is smart, and will have a long lifespan as viewers cannot access all materials immediately. It will be interesting to see the results. -HB

the night desk's curator insight, September 22, 2014 2:02 PM

This Kiwi film is about a girl named Kylie with a sorted criminal past sentenced to home confinement with her mum, not quite realizing what was going on in her childhood home until she was trapped there unable to escape what hunts her. The comedic horror flick follows her journey as she rids the house of its unwelcome guest. I saw some tentative dates for 'Housebound' coming out in October, but since it is almost upon us, and the movie is not rated yet... I'm unsure whether this crazy horror flick will reach audiences until sometime after Halloween.  The film festival audiences loved the movie and the trailer looks amazing.

'The Purge: Anarchy' has been a success for Hollywood, and Universal's Halloween Horror Nights has taken notice.  'The Purge' will be at this year's HHN, albeit only in a scare zone, but they do say it will take up most, if not all, the New York lot.  The movie was alot of fun, mostly because the weak were finally able to fight back, and the truth about the day being a way to rid the country of the poor came to the forefront.  At HHN 'The Purge' emergency broadcast will played letting people know the night of 'Purge' is about to commence.  Which group of purgers would you align yourself with?

It has been leaked that this year might be the very best, and most grotesque of all the 'American Horror Story' miniseries thus far.  In the short sneak peek video, you see a beautiful would be angel standing before an audience spreading her wings, only to be to quickly dissuaded from that idea when the camera swings behind her to rest on the man using her as a bloody winged puppet.  I can't imagine how dark this will get before I just can't bare to watch, but if this is any taste of what madness is coming, I suspect it won't be long.  What do you think of the angel, beautiful or horrifically sad?

Alfred Hitchcock: Hiding the Cuts in Rope

Alfred Hitchcock: Hiding the Cuts in Rope | THRILLER FILM CODES & CONVENTIONS | Scoop.it

ROPE (1948) is Alfred Hitchcock’s murder/suspense film that showcases the killing in its second shot. ROPE is often described as having no editing…a film that plays out in real-time…but it had to hide the cuts due to the 10-minute film reel limits of the day.

Yes, anyone who has watched the show knows of Dean's "vices" since day one, but now the angel in his corner doesn't get his ear like he had before, only the devil lives there.  Now that Dean's feeling pretty naughty and lost the need to be the moral compass for Sam, will this be the bloodiest season for both the brothers... of course.  Sam's demonic, ill conceived virtues have often been found lacking when Dean has been out of the picture, why should we expect this time to be any better. Well this time Sam will be out for revenge, and I'm sure a secret hope of saving his big brother from Crowley... although, I can easily see Dean becoming the "king of hell" in no time at all.  Are you looking forward to season 10 of 'Supernatural' ?

Looks like these crazy kids have found a way out of their mess, and back into the fight to stop the apocalypse.  With everything Abigail has gone through over the past months, you would think she would be questioning her sanity as much, if not more, than her sister.  These two sisters are definitely a case for the nature versus nurture argument with Abbie's surrogate sheriff father being so prominent in her life keeping her sane, while preparing her for what would happen next in 'Sleepy Hollow.'  Which horseman would you like to see in season 2 of 'Sleepy Hollow'?
