Stars Urge Fashion Industry to Change the Game

Vegan stars and influencers Evanna Lynch, Mya, Daniella Monet, Harley Quinn Smith, Cammie Scott, Yovana Mendoza, Jenné Claiborne, and Renee Olstead have teamed up with PETA and Meg and Komie Vora of Los Angeles womenswear brand Delikate Rayne for a new vegan fashion campaign that urges both consumers and businesses to consider the animals who are exploited and killed for fashion — and change the game.

The campaign features a new video in which the women share the reasons why they choose vegan leather, faux fur, wool-free knits, and other animal-friendly fabrics — and why they encourage their combined 8 million followers to do the same. The campaign also includes a limited-edition PETA x Delikate Rayne faux-suede cap, 20 percent of the proceeds of which will go toward PETA’s lifesaving work for animals.

R&B singer Mýa says, “The true test of any nation is how it treats its innocent beings, and animals obviously fall into the category.

Film Review: ‘Feral’

  • Variety
Film Review: ‘Feral’
A zombie by any other name would smell as sweet as “Feral,” which is to say, pretty gamy — not to mention pretty familiar, as genre fare goes. Mark H. Young’s indie feature is a competent horror thriller that ultimately doesn’t sport enough inspiration, in ideas or execution, to make for anything more than an Ok but forgettable night’s rental. It opens a limited L.A. theatrical engagement simultaneous with on-demand launch this Friday.

A sextet of mostly med school students are on a camping weekend to celebrate recent graduation. They’re all paired off: Nice guy Matt (George Finn) with equally sweet-natured Brie (Renee Olstead); her best friend Alice (Scout Taylor-Compton) with new squeeze Jules (Olivia Luccardi); and somewhat noxious alpha male Jesse (Brock Kelly), who has brought along his own new arm-candy Gina (Landry Allbright) but is clearly put out that ex-girlfriend Alice left him — for a woman,

Movie Review – Feral (2018)

Feral, 2018.

Directed by Mark Young.

Starring Scout Taylor-Compton, Olivia Luccardi, Lew Temple, Renee Olstead, Brock Kelly, Landry Allbright, and George Finn.

Synopsis:

Students fight to survive a weekend in the woods.

IFC Midnight’s latest “don’t go into the woods” condemnation (in little over a month) is Mark Young’s Feral, which – not subtlety – can be described as “The Wildling meets The Descent above ground.” Med schoolers adventure into Mother Nature’s den, confront a bloodthirsty foe and are taken in by a middle-of-nowhere hermit – it’s nothing you’ve yet to experience as a genre fan. Inhuman creature skulking is on-all-fours animalistic (and suitably unsettling), but established midnight creeps are weighed down by insincere exposition meant to personalize student bodies who one-by-one succumb to infectious bites. Your standard Monster Mashing 101, nary a shock beyond feisty-enough defense modes.

On the plus side, Feral speeds zero-to-sixty into action. During our

Trailer for Horror 'Feral' About a Group Trying to Survive in the Woods

"You don't understand what's coming... you have no idea." IFC Midnight has released an official trailer for an indie horror thriller titled Feral, from horror director Mark Young. The film is about a group of students who fight to survive a weekend in the woods when they suddenly start falling prey to a horrifying virus that turns them into rabid, rampaging cannibal-zombies. The script for this film is co-written by Adam Frazier, who also writes reviews for the site. Feral stars Scout Taylor-Compton, Olivia Luccardi, Lew Temple, Renee Olstead, Brock Kelly, Landry Allbright and George Finn.

Your best friend has just been infected with a horrifying virus that will soon turn her into a rabid, rampaging cannibal-zombie. Do you: a) try to save her? or b) kill her before she kills you? That’s the nightmarish scenario six students find themselves facing when their celebratory camping trip goes terrifyingly wrong. One by one, each falls victim to the “feral” disease, until only Alice and Jules—two girlfriends testing the waters of their new relationship—are left standing, armed with a shotgun and holed up in a remote cabin. They’ve got a hell of a fight before them if they hope to survive…

Unfriended, Cyberbully and fear in the social media age

facebook

twitter

google+

We return to the 2015 horror Unfriended, and how it and other films explore the dark side of social media...

Nb: The following contains spoilers for Unfriended

Unfriended is one of those horror films that becomes less effective the noisier it becomes. Released across America by Universal last year, the film's a twist on the old teen-slasher format, so of course there’s lots of screaming, stalking and violent death. But these scenes of bloody pay-off are a distraction from Unfriended’s quieter moments - for its here the movie's true power lurks.

At a time when the found-footage genre is in desperate need of reinvention, Unfriended finds an ingenious twist on the old first-person, shaky-cam sub-genre. The entire movie takes place on the flickering laptop screen of its protagonist, Blaire (Shelley Hennig). We’re subjected to an initially dizzying array of opening and closing windows, as Blaire

Theatre Review: David Arquette’s ‘Sherlock Holmes’ Cheapens Drama With Campy, Unfunny Comedy

Chicago – Different isn’t bad and might be great, but you’d better have an irrefutable reason to change what was never broken. Campy being the only word to accurately convey this alternate-reality version of Sherlock Holmes with an original script, writer Greg Kramer and director Andrew Shaver try too hard to be different without ever figuring out why.

Play Rating: 2.0/5.0

This Thanksgiving, spend your time anywhere but with David Arquette’s “Sherlock Holmes” at the Oriental Theatre. Thankfully, the one-week limited engagement only runs in Chicago from Nov. 24 through Nov. 29, 2015 until it tours elsewhere.
