10 Horror Movies That Were Cursed In Real Life

Horror films make for particularly tortured productions. Historically, they have higher odds of spooking out their cast, crew, and audiences. The late '60s and the '70s were a particularly ripe time for genre films that unsettled both on and off camera; movies like "Rosemary's Baby," "The Exorcist," and "The Omen" were all released within 10 years of each other, and remain some of the best-regarded horror films of all time. As we'll see, these productions were also plagued by on-set strangeness,...

Sam Raimi Was Reluctant To Direct Doctor Strange 2 After The Reaction To Spider-Man 3

"Spider-Man 3" has been an Internet punching bag ever since it came out in 2007, and director Sam Raimi took his fair share of body blows from fanboys and the press when the film failed to live up to expectations. In fact, the negativity he experienced in the wake of that movie was so intense that it made him think twice about accepting the job to direct the upcoming Marvel Studios movie "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness." "I Didn't Know That I Could Face It Again" Online fan outrage ...

Sam Raimi Thought He Was Done With Superhero Movie After Spider-Man 3

Director Sam Raimi is often credited with making some of the best comic book films ever in the form of Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2, but following Spider-Man 3, Raimi was unsure he’d ever return to the world of comic book movies.

Doctor Strange 2 Director Sam Raimi Explains His Process: 'A Different Take, Something Unexpected'

The path that filmmaker Sam Raimi took to end up in charge of another Marvel superhero was a long and winding one -- full of unexpected developments and an odd (some might say strange) confluence of unlikely events. Maybe it was destiny? In that sense, it's a journey that's perfectly fitting for the director of "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness." I could almost picture Benedict Cumberbatch's Stephen Strange hovering off the ground, looking through potential futures, and landing on the...

The Black Phone Review: Scott Derrickson Delivers The Best Joe Hill Adaptation Yet [Fantastic Fest]

If you know me or my work, you know I'm a Stephen King guy. My (far too) early childhood viewings of adaptations of his work like "The Shining" and "Stand By Me" tempted young me to pick up my very first King book in the sixth grade. It was "Cujo" and I'd read it in snippets while my teacher wasn't looking, hiding it in my perfectly-sized pencil box when their Sauron-like gaze fell my way.About halfway through the book, most of which I didn't fully understand but could keep up with thanks in no ...

"Zodiac," "Memories of Murder," "Mindhunter," and many more productions have all carved out their own niches and dramatized the real-life struggles involved in their respective stories ... and now it's time for "The Execution" to ...

The Electrical Life Of Louis Wain Review: Benedict Cumberbatch Paints Cats In This Surprisingly Melancholy Biopic [TIFF 2021]

It's hard to believe now, but there was a period when many people didn't consider cats to be pet material. Then again, this probably isn't the most shocking news to some folks – our feline friends are notoriously aloof and independent, and sometimes it seems like they have no use for us at all. In the England of the late 1800s, cats were considered useful for catching rodents and not much else. And then along came Louis Wain. The eccentric painter conjured up anthropomorphized cat illustrations ...

The 13 Best Movies About The Devil Ranked

The devil is terrifying. Whether viewers are persons of faith or not, there's something about the devil that cultivates a distinct, almost existential kind of fear. The name alone, uttered in shadows and whispers, is enough to inspire a perennial, frosty chill. For certain audiences, the devil is very much real. For others, the movies he stars in are so chilling and so raw in their depiction of Old Scratch that until the lights go on, whoever is watching just might find themselves believing, too...

Benedict Cumberbatch Was 'Sad' Marvel And Scott Derrickson Broke Up Over Doctor Strange 2

There aren't exactly that many underdog movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the most popular franchise on Earth at the moment, that could genuinely be considered "underrated" or "underappreciated." That said, I'll happily go to bat for 2016's "Doctor Strange" as one of the franchise's more sneakily effective solo movies, bringing creative action, a sense of spirituality, and a knowingly (I'll even say refreshingly) unlikable protagonist into a rapidly-expanding world of mysticism and superh...

Benedict Cumberbatch Improvised Calling Tony Stark A 'Douchebag' In Avengers: Infinity War

Don't ask me why, but nothing lights up certain circles of film fans quite like (usually unsubstantiated) claims that a certain scene or line of dialogue was improvised in a major movie or show. If true, it usually tends to be overblown or a simple case where everyone talked over alternate lines or ways to play specific moments that might not necessarily have been present in the script itself. In short, there's nothing inherently better about improvisation versus sticking to the script! All that...

Ethan Hawke Talks Moon Knight, Says Oscar Isaac Gives An "Absolutely Phenomenal" Performance

Ethan Hawke's last TV project was "The Good Lord Bird," a Western set in the pre-Civil War era. That's the American Civil War, not the MCU's "Civil War," though anyone who flunked History could be forgiven for making that mistake since Hawke has now joined the MCU and is out there comparing its movies and TV shows to Westerns.A chance run-in with Oscar Isaac at a Brooklyn coffee shop led to Hawke being cast in "Moon Knight," Marvel's upcoming Disney+ series.

Scott Derrickson's The Black Phone Is "The Scariest Movie" Producer Jason Blum Has Made

During CinemaCon this week, footage from Scott Derrickson's "The Black Phone" gave lucky attendees a glimpse of the Joe Hill adaptation to come.

The horror film reunites Derrickson with "Sinister" star Ethan Hawke, who this time plays a masked kidnapper with a captive kid in his basement.  The Scariest ...

Timo Tjahjanto’s Mysterious Project With Scott Derrickson and Robert Cargill is a “Christmas Story” Titled ‘The Handover’

2018’s The Night Comes For Us almost seems like the perfect example of a movie that bridges the genre gap between “horror” and “action,” serving up plentiful gore and spectacular deaths with an intensity that would make many a horror filmmaker jealous. In that light, it perhaps wasn’t much of a surprise at all to see writer/director Timo Tjahjanto take yet another big step into the horror scene by joining filmmakers Scott Derrickson and Robert C. Cargill on their next movie. Now, we know a litt...
