    I dunno about top 5, but... yeah. The first one was pretty funny, although the joke got old before the movie was over.

    Hammer Launch YouTube Channel With Free Films, Give Us Early Look At The Quiet Ones | Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and Rumors

    Perhaps the biggest draw will be some full-length films from their back catalogue, now available to stream in full and for free. So far you can chose from The Quatermass Xperiment, The Last Page (aka Man Bait), Captain Kronos, Dick Barton Special Agent and The Man In Black - which has nothing to do with recent Hammer hit The Woman In Black beyond the labels.
    Cool!

    Review: 'The Apparition' Is A Hauntingly Inept Chiller | The Playlist

    In "The Apparition," a profoundly dull and uninteresting horror movie from the usually above-average Joel Silver genre machine Dark Castle (home to things like the crucially underrated "House of Wax" remake and the splatter-fu oddity "Ninja Assassin"), a group of smart aleck grad students unwittingly open a gateway to a vaguely defined supernatural realm and release some kind of ghost… or boogen… or something. And as a horror movie conceit, this one is pretty cool – testing tweedy academia's hubris against the ethereal spookiness of the spiritual unknown. It's just that "The Apparition," which is horrible instead of horrifying, doesn't do anything with the concept. Instead, it's a plodding, undercooked, and old-fashioned (not in a good way, either) chiller that will bore you to tears instead of scare you to death.

    With a premise as potentially nifty as the one presented "The Apparition" (it could have been a cool "Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors" deal, but updated with today's technological omnipresence, scientific expansion and world-weary cynicism), you think at least some amount of fun could have been wrung out the proceedings. Unfortunately, from about two seconds after the title card flashes and up until its limp, existential finale, "The Apparition" makes no attempts to transcend or even enliven its genre. [D]
    It's unfortunate that these crap horror flicks are constantly the ones getting all the exposure. :(

    the best thing about this movie...that reviewer got to use BOOGEN in the article.

    BOOGEN...say it a few times. Let's make that word a regular daily occurence. Seriously.

    Apparition, The (2012) | Horror Movie, DVD, & Book Reviews, News, Interviews at Dread Central

    That's not to say that The Apparition is a total dud; Felton, despite his limited screen time, once again delivers some stellar work, and Lincoln and his DP Daniel C. Pearl (who shot the original The Texas Chain Saw Massacre for Tobe Hooper) have crafted a beautiful film that was shot on 35mm, giving The Apparition great depth and vibrancy as well as a nice old-school feel to it that really demonstrates why it would be shame for 35mm to disappear completely.

    You just don't see many movies on the big screen anymore that feel like The Apparition does, and that is definitely something to appreciate about Lincoln's approach for his first time at the helm.

    There are also a few clever moments in The Apparition that demonstrate Lincoln had some engaging ideas as a storyteller; nothing I'd want to give away because they venture into spoiler territory so all I will say is that he managed to cook up a surprise or two in the third act that were rather surprising even for me and made clothes hangers scary again (and definitely not in a Mommie Dearest way either).

    But as a whole The Apparition is clearly a film meant for the teenage date night scene, which is totally fine - those audiences deserve some scares, too - but hardened horror fans should keep that in mind before buying their tickets. The movie isn’t scary and plays it way too safe, making for an underwhelming experience for this horror fan and a film I'd recommend as a rental more so than something worth plunking down $12-$15 a ticket to see. Mainstream audiences will probably enjoy The Apparition, but I'm looking forward to seeing what Lincoln does his next time at the helm when hopefully he won't have to work within the confines of a PG-13 rating.
    Kinda sad...what could have been.

    The musclebound "Game of Thrones" star Jason Momoa has joined David Hayter's upcoming lycanthrophic thriller "Wolves."

    The film stars Lucas Till ("X-Men: First Class") as a young, newly-transformed werewolf who flees home for a mysterious small town called Lupine Ridge, where he comes face-to-face with a host of other supernatural elements.

    Momoa will play the film's main villain role, an alpha male werewolf who controls the town
    Kingsqueen shall be pleased.
