‘Penny Dreadful’ ends with season 3 finale http://www.deadburiedandback.com/headline-news/penny-dreadful-ends-season-3-finale/ http://www.deadburiedandback.com/headline-news/penny-dreadful-ends-season-3-finale/#comments Tue, 21 Jun 2016 16:11:44 +0000 http://www.deadburiedandback.com/?p=49761 Episode 309

*SPOILER ALERT*
The following recap contains a major spoiler.

If you were an avid follower of Showtime’s dark,creepy and suspenseful series Penny Dreadful, then this news may be old news.
It’s just now coming out from the show’s creator John Logan and Showtimes’ president David Nevin,that indeed, Penny Dreadful has come to an end. As first reported by Deadline, Logan was quoted as saying “I can absolutely confirm it is really over, the end, that’s all she wrote. The whole idea to have this be the end of the series applies to all of the characters not just for Vanessa Ives and I felt the ending was for Malcolm and Ethan was Ethan got the father that he wanted and Sir Malcolm got the family he needed and together they came to a nice thing of stasis.”

The show ended with a 2 hour season finale where Vanessa Ives(Eva Green) was bitten by Dracula and then in a loving, caring moment,was’set free’ when Ethan( Josh Hartnetts) killed her. For many, the news of the cancellation came as a surprise and somewhat of a shock.
Nevins in an interview with Variety, added “We deliberately made the decision not to announce going into season three this was the final season, because given where we knew the season was ending, that would have been a massive spoiler. It would not have felt like the right way to handle this show. If it had been a more conventional show, I think I would have given a little more warning to the audience. But it felt like, in this case, that was the obvious move, but not the bold move.”

I followed Penny dreadful from the first episode to the last and i enjoyed each episode. While I was concerned that Eva was heading down a path of no return as they say, I figured the writers would get creative and she’d find her salvation.
I was wrong!
The finale though, was well written and beautifully executed. While I’ll miss the show, maybe Nevin and Logan have some valid points. Some stories aren’t meant to be dragged out. Having said that, Penny Dreadful while ending on a sad note,from start to finish had twenty-seven wonderful episodes and that’s how it should be remembered.

Check out the “final moments” trailer which includes Logan’s behind the scenes comments.

R.I.P. Anton Yelchin http://www.deadburiedandback.com/headline-news/r-i-p-aton-yelchin/ http://www.deadburiedandback.com/headline-news/r-i-p-aton-yelchin/#comments Tue, 21 Jun 2016 15:31:58 +0000 http://www.deadburiedandback.com/?p=49750 antonanton fright night

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Although Anton Yelchin was known for his role as Chekov in the Star Trek reboots, his career reached audiences of all genres. Sadly on June 19th in what can only be described as a freak accident, Anton died after being pinned by his Jeep Grand Cherokee against his brick mailbox.
As reported by CNN among other sources,Yelchin stepped out of his car in the driveway of his Studio City home at around 1:10 a.m. PT when the car slid backwards and pinned him against a brick pillar and a security fence, causing trauma that led to his death.

While I’ve been a Star Trek fan going on thirty years now and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed watching him portray Chekov, the first time I saw Anton was in the Fright Night remake.

Anton was a American film and television actor, known for portraying Pavel Chekov in the Star Trek reboot series, and for several other prominent roles.
Born to a Russian Jewish family in Leningrad, Yelchin relocated to the United States as an infant. He began performing in the late 1990s, appearing in several television roles and the Hollywood films Along Came a Spider and Hearts in Atlantis (both 2001). His role as Jacob Clarke in the Steven Spielberg miniseries Taken was significant in furthering his career as a child actor.[1] He later appeared on the television series Huff and starred in the films Terminator Salvation (2009), Charlie Bartlett (2007), Fright Night (2011), Like Crazy (2011), The Smurfs (2011) and Only Lovers Left Alive (2013). He appears in Star Trek (2009) and Star Trek Into Darkness (2013), and will appear posthumously in Star Trek Beyond (2016).

All of us at Dead, Buried, and Back! send our deepest condolences to his family and friends.

‘The Neon Demon’ review http://www.deadburiedandback.com/movies-reviews/the-neon-demon-review/ http://www.deadburiedandback.com/movies-reviews/the-neon-demon-review/#comments Tue, 21 Jun 2016 14:25:58 +0000 http://www.deadburiedandback.com/?p=49733 Neon demon key art

 

Beauty isn’t everything, it’s the only thing.”

Synopsis: When aspiring model Jesse (Elle Fanning) moves to Los Angeles, her youth and vitality are devoured by a group of beauty-obsessed women who will use any means necessary to get what she has.

After seeing this movie, you will never look at your model friends the same. Nor will you look at beauty the same.

This movie is definitely different from your average horror film. Though listed as a drama/horror/thriller, I feel the film falls more into a Psychological thriller/horror category. It has plenty of gore and suspense, but the cinematography and story-line gave it a whole new twist. Though a little too conceptual at times, the movie did have some high points. Director Nicolas Winding Refn went above and beyond his already captivating shooting style and created visually stunning scenes.

The film contains several twists and turns for all the characters. I found myself asking “What the f*** just happened?!?!” numerous times. I’ll be honest, at times it felt like I was watching an acid trip filled with blood and glitter. I often questioned if the scene I was watching was actually happening or if we were seeing a hallucination from one of the characters. I was just completely lost as to what was going on at certain points.

Neon Demon was written and directed by Nicolas Winding Refn with Screenplay by Mary Laws and Polly Stenham. The film stars Elle Fanning, Christina Hendricks and Keanu Reeves. Though the latter two unfortunately had very briefs scenes. I will say that I will never look at Keanu the same way.

I would not recommend taking a girl on a first date to this movie, or children, but if you were a fan of Drive, then it is definitely worth seeing.

Overall rating:  Three stars

v2-03

neon demon still 1 Neon Demon is a provocative horror-thriller that follows Jesse (Elle Fanning), a starry-eyed sixteen-year-old who comes to Los Angeles with dreams of becoming a runway model. The director Nicholas Refn made it a point to create a horror film without the obvious horror elements. The film provides shocking and envelope pushing scenes that he is known for, while creating a sensation of impending doom.

Death stranding

 

 

 

 

 

Horror gamers and Norman Reedus fans will love the following news. Kojima Productions an independent label from Konami, is set to release their first horror game starring no other than Norman Reedus. The announcement was made at the recent E3 gaming summit that Kojima has teamed up with Sony for this new title. The trailer below is a tad on the weird side, but it seems to be quite emotional. So what’s the game about? Who knows. That seems to be a well kept secret for the moment.
What we do know is in the trailer Norman is crying over a dead baby then the baby’s footprints appear and disappear. CREEPY!
Death Stranding will be available on PS4.

The Conjuring 2 review http://www.deadburiedandback.com/news/conjuring-2-review/ http://www.deadburiedandback.com/news/conjuring-2-review/#comments Fri, 10 Jun 2016 15:49:42 +0000 http://www.deadburiedandback.com/?p=49644 the conjuring 2 key art
*Spoiler alert* This review contains spoilers.

Question: How do you put a fresh spin on demonic possession movies? Answer: You give the film to James Wan and say “Here you go… have fun!”
Since I was a huge fan of the first Conjuring, I was eagerly awaiting The Conjuring 2. However I had some reservations because sequels tend to be hit or miss.
Directed by James Wan and starring Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga as Ed and Lorraine Warren, The Conjuring 2 was based on the “Enfield Poltergeist”. The premise focused on a single mother Peggy Hodgson, and her four children and was set in Endfield,England in 1977. In this story a malevolent spirit is conjured up by Janet Hodgson (Madison Wolfe) and her sister when they start playing with a homemade Ouija board.

In the opening moments, we find the Warrens setting up their research equipment as they prepare to investigate the Amityville house. For those who aren’t familiar with Ed and Lorraine, back in 1975 they were called to investigate the home after Ronald Defeo murdered his family then blamed it on demonic possession. Within a year of the murders, the home’s new owners the Lutz family, abandoned it in the middle of the night claiming it was possessed. The resulting Amityville investigation put the Warrens in the national spotlight.

I have to give credit to Wan and his screen writers Chad and Cary Hayes, and David Leslie Johnson for opening the film this way. They stayed true to the Warren’s history and it was a great lead in for Lorraine to have a terrifying out of the body experience during a seance. While horror films in general tend to be quite predictable, Wan continues to create films where he understands that building suspense is the key.
Put simply, James Wan is a master at his craft and the tools he uses camerawork, timing, and mini-shocks are prominent throughout the film. There are a couple of scenes that were obviously “borrowed” from the Insidious films, but they fit nicely into this story.

So what set this film apart from the original Conjuring?

Aside from the location, there was humor (yes, you read that correctly) and this time Lorraine’s terrifying visions from Amityville, scared her enough to consider retiring. The Conjuring 2 also centered around the relationship between Ed and Lorraine. While this caused the film to drag a little, it was a nice touch.
Since I brought up the drag comment, I should elaborate. The film was much longer(133 minutes) than the original and although certain scenes seemed necessary to the plot, they took too long to develop. Overall,they could of shaved off an additional 10-15 minutes and it wouldn’t of hurt the film in the least.

So that about sums up The Conjuring 2. It’s packed with suspense, scares, and terrifying images to keep you up at night if you’re on the squeamish side. If you’re a fan of the Conjuring films there’s plenty to be excited about.Conjuring 2 screen shot
