Justina Walford and John Stuart Wildman of "Ladies of the House"

In the Horror genre, sex and fantasy almost always make a gruesome collision with homicidal mania, and if we're lucky, there will some dark resounding purpose behind the killings. This rarely occurs, except in Asian Horror and in Ladies of the House, a fresh intelligent take on Grindhouse horror produced by writer/director wife/husband combo John Stuart Wildman and Justina Walford. The differences between Asian and American Horror are radically different. In the Asian horror genre, women aren't fearful, hyper-sexualized objects, but also take on antagonistic roles. "I wanted to make female characters who are strong and not in a position where they are terrified victims or monsters, and we wanted to clear the deck completely and make a world in which men were superfluous and there to serve women," added Wildman.  Check out the filmmakers' exclusive interview with Indiezone.tv!

Jason Schwartzman, Judith Godrèche from Patrick Brice's The Overnight at SXSW

A comedy of errors might be the best way to describe the Overnight, one of this year's South by Southwest Festival Favorites. Some of the biggest comedic names in the entertainment industry—Jason Schwartzman, Adam Scott, and Taylor Schilling—were joined by Judith Godrèche, a vet of more dramatic French and American productions, in this story of neighbors looking to become friends after a meet-cute in the park. Or maybe they are looking to becoming something more than that? Are they? Aren't they? We're still not sure!

Wednesday, March 18, saw the world premiere of a documentary we're sure you'll be hearing more about in the next year. Why so sure? As news has spread about the Recycled Orchestra of Cateura, their story has deepened and expanded, making the film itself into an ever-evolving and unquestionably inspiring project.

Taissa Farmiga, Nina Dobrev, Alia Shawkat, Angela Trimbur at the SXSW Premiere of Todd Strauss-Schulson's "The Final Girls"

 

The union of horror and comedy is a blessed one, bringing us years and years of entertainment from as early as the Evil Dead series to What We Do in the Shadows, a vampire mockumentary currently playing at a movie theater near you. But what happens when one more ingredient, a healthy dose of heartfelt sentimentality, gets added to that winning combination? In the case of the Final Girls, wherein a daughter is reunited with her deceased mother after being sucked into a slasher-film-set made reality, you get movie gold.

USA Network Premieres Mr. Robot at SXSW

When a network chooses to first premiere a television pilot at South by Southwest rather than on their channel, you know it's a show that'll build buzz fast.  Mr. Robot is the USA Network's newest series, starring Christian Slater in the title role of the puppet master behind a global hacker network. Cyber security specialist Elliot (Rami Malek) is recruited by Mr. Robot to infiltrate his own workplace…and his own anti-social disorder if he wants to take part in a movement that he hopes is for the greater good.

Sally Field, Natasha Lyonne, Max Greenfield, Stephen Root, and Michael Showalter at the SXSW Premiere of "Hello My Name is Doris"

When Michael Showalter directs and co-writes a film, you can be sure the laughter will fall fast as an old lady off her rocker. Add the inimitable Sally Field in the lead role of Doris, a sixty-something woman aiming to seduce her much-younger boss, and you're guaranteed not only humor but humility in Hello, My Name is Doris.

2015 ASC Awards

It's only been a week since it wrapped, but we're already viewing the 2015 awards season through the gauzy filigree of memory. The cinematographers who bring the year's most visionary films to life could pull that effect off in their sleep. Without the artistry and expertise of the men and women behind the cameras, so many of the stories we love would look entirely different. Imagine Birdman without the rapturous long takes of Emmanuel Lubezki, who took home the Academy Award for Best Cinematography for the second straight year. You can't do it, can you? Neither can Lubezki's professional peers in the American Society of Cinematographers (ASC) who assuredly know excellent work when they see it and also awarded him for Outstanding Achievement in Cinematography for Theatrical Release for the second consecutive year.

2015 WGA Awards Feature Screenplay Award Nominees and Winners

The 2015 Writers Guild Awards (WGA) for the West Coast were held on February 14, making it a day for romancing last year's best writers with accolades and honors. In lieu of roses, we think taking home a WGA award expressed the WGA members' love for their fellow writers quite well enough.  

The WGA Awards run the gamut of media platforms, choosing their sweethearts from among writers for television, video gaming, radio, and Internet-based shows. Being held so close to the Academy Awards, the categories of Best Original, Adapted, and Documentary Feature Screenplay generate high levels of interest, of course. And as the theatrical screenplay nominees and winners expressed again and again during our interviews, being recognized by their peers within the professional union makes the WGA awards that much more meaningful.

2015 WGA Awards Television Screenplay Award Nominees and Winners

2015 WGA Television Screenplay Award Nominees and Winners
 
The nominees for best television screenplays at the Writers Guild of America West (WGA) Awards were a vast and varied group—so vast and varied that it'll take more than one column to cover them all!
 
When taken together, however, the dramatic and comedic contenders all share one trait: excellence. That held true whether the nominees dealt with the many shades of grief, found the humor in personal growth, animated plastic building blocks, or depicted dragons we're afraid to call animated. But can these talented writers wield a microphone as well as a keyboard during their Indiezone.TV interviews? Read on to find out.
