the staircase limited series

The Staircase, the docuseries about the murder trial of Michael Peterson, is becoming a limited series for HBO Max.

the devil all the time review

Sprawling and brutal, The Devil All the Time is not for the impatient or the squeamish. Adapted rather faithfully from Donald Ray Pollock’s novel of the same name, Antonio Campos‘ star-studded Southern gothic tracks a group of sinners through time as they all mill about the unincorporated area known as Knockemstiff, Ohio, leaving a trail of death, sorrow, and regret in their wake. It can be an overwhelmingly bleak film, but there’s a glimmer of hope shining through all that darkness – the hope of escaping the insane world you find yourself stuck in.

Afterschool director Antonio Campos follows up his unnervingly hypnotic film Simon Killer with Christine. Campo’s third feature premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, where it was praised as a brutal, intimate character study with a tremendous performance from Rebecca Hall (The Gift) as Christine Chubbuck, a reporter who committed suicide on the air in 1974. The independent drama, which co-stars Michael C. Hall (Cold in July) and Tracy Letts (Indignation), was sold to The Orchard, and they’re releasing it into theaters next month.

‘The Omen’ Prequel Is in the Works For Some Reason

the omen prequel

The news that 20th Century Fox is developing a prequel to the 1976 horror classic The Omen shouldn’t come as much of a surprise – everything gets a prequel these days, whether the original material calls for it or not. It’s just the current state of the system. It’s also not too surprising that David Goyer is on board as a producer, since he has a habit of popping up anywhere and everywhere, especially when someone is trying to reinvent something with a familiar name. What is pleasantly surprising is the involvement of director Antonio Campos, who is the kind of fresh voice that should be making genre movies at major studios.
