‘The Nun’ Trailer: The ‘Conjuring’ Universe Looks Into That Terrifying Portrait

The Nun trailer header

I’m not a fan of the Conjuring films. Not because they are bad films, but they scare the bejeezus out of me. The success of both films have given way for spinoffs, and thus launching what is known as The Conjuring Universe. Following the success of two surprisingly good Annabelle films, comes The Nun.

The portrait which appeared in The Conjuring 2 is getting its very own spinoff, which isn’t in the same vein as the Annabelle films, but it does give us pause as to why we keep inflecting scars on ourselves watching these terrifyingly good horrors/thrillers. Check out the first trailer below.

SXSW Movie Review The Final Girls

The Final Girls
Directed by Todd Strauss-Schulson
Written by M.A. Fortin & Joshua John Miller
Starring Malin Akerman, Taissa Farmiga, Alexander Ludwig, Nina Dobrev, Thomas Middleditch, Angela Trimbur, Chloe Bridges, Adam Devine
Vertical Entertainment
Release Date: October 9th, 2015

A friend of mine sent me the trailer to The Final Girls on Facebook with the message, “It’s like Last Action Hero as a horror movie!” So obviously I was intrigued immediately. I was excited when I went to NYCC and sat in the panel for this film, with director Todd Strauss-Schulson (Harold & Kumar 3), and star Malin Akerman (Watchmen, The Heartbreak Kid, etc.) They discussed how this isn’t a traditional horror movie, but rather a movie about coping with the loss of a parent, and how you’d react if you had one more chance to be with them… that, inside an 80s slasher setting with a Jason Voorhees style killer chasing them. What we end up with, is a movie that at times was as goofball funny as Tucker & Dale vs. Evil, while managing to evoke real heartfelt emotion. It makes The Final Girls a truly unique film.

SXSW Movie Review The Final Girls

The Final Girls
Director: Todd Strauss-Schulson
Screenwriters: M. A. Fortin, Joshua John Miller
Cast: Taissa Farmiga, Malin Akerman, Adam DeVine, Thomas Middleditch, Alia Shawkat, Alexander Ludwig, Nina Dobrev
Release Date: March 13, 2014

Directed by Todd Strauss-Schulson (A Very Harold and Kumar 3D Christmas) The Final Girls is the latest in a growing cannon of meta-horror films. Part horror, part comedy, and all meta, The Final Girls satirizes 70’s and 80’s summer camp slasher films. The story follows Max (Taissa Farmiga, American Horror Story), a young virgin who (through mysterious circumstances which shall not be spoiled here) lands inside the very film that defined her mother’s scream queen career. Once inside, Max and her reluctant friends must survive horny camp counselors, trippy flashbacks, sing-alongs, and the deranged psycho-killer Billy (a stoic, slow-walking homage to Jason Voorhees of Friday the 13th).

TV Review: American Horror Story – Pilot

American Horror Story (2011)

American Horror Story
Season 1, Episode 1 – Pilot
Directed by Ryan Murphy
Written by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk
Starring Connie Britton, Dylan McDermott, Taissa Farmiga, Jessica Lange, Jamie Brewer, Frances Conroy, Evan Peters, Denis O’Hare
FX
Air Date: Wednesday, October 5, 2011 10pm

American Horror Story, the new series from Glee creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, seems to be heading in a potentially interesting direction if the pilot episode is anything to go by. But I won’t be going along with them.

First off I’m not exactly the biggest fan of Murphy (whose other crimes against pop culture include creating Nip/Tuck and writing and directing Eat, Pray, Love) or any members of the American Horror Story cast, including Dylan McDermott, Connie Britton (although she was good on Spin City and Friday Night Lights), and Jessica Lange. It’s a mixed bag of overrated talent that grates my nerves whenever any of them are on screen and it doesn’t help the actors that the characters they play are unsympathetic and the material dull and pretentious. By the way, this is supposed to be a haunted house story.

American Horror Story

If there is one thing that this Fall is going to be, it’s going to be chock full of scares, particularly in the world of television. With the likes of The Walking Dead returning, the biggest player this season may in fact be a newcomer, from a storied name in TV.

Created by Glee‘s Ryan Murphy, American Horror Story stars Dylan McDermott, Connie Britton, Taissa Farmiga, and Jessica Lange, and has been slowly building anticipation through cryptic teasers and even more cryptic viral marketing (like the bloody wedding cake delivered here to Doom HQ). The show features an awesome cast, so it has to be great, right? Well, if these five minutes are to be believed, then that statement is true.
