Local filmmaker’s vampire series focuses on noir storytelling

Shawn Barfield hopes to begin shooting the pilot for his series In the World of the Long Breath in late July.

Hansel & Gretel: Warriors of Witchcraft

Another: H&G: WOW is directed by David DeCoteau, whose dirt-cheap filmography includes 1313: Giant Killer Bees! (exclamation theirs), Test Tube Teens from the Year 2000 and the forthcoming A Talking Cat!?! (exclamations and question mark theirs). In this flaccid effort, Hansel and Gretel Jonah and Ella (real-life sibs Booboo and Fivel Stewart, respectively) play orphan

The Apparition

This is the real estate conundrum vexing the cute couple at the tell-tale heart of The Apparition, Ben (Sebastian Stan, Captain America: The First Avenger) and Kelly (Ashley Greene, The Twilight Saga). It’s all because, unbeknownst to his beaut beau, Ben took active part in a paranormal psychology experiment headed by a fellow student (Tom

The plot plops a bunch of slackers in a dark and empty family farmhouse on the

Breaking Wind

I kid. Clearly, there are jokes, fired at a regular, near-rapid pace. It’s just that none is funny. Consider these random examples:• A Capt. Jack Sparrow impersonator holding salad tongs asks a group of frightened women, “Anyone in the mood for a good salad tossing?” • An Edward Scissorhands impersonator lets loose a fart, sniffs

Water for Elephants

Francis Lawrence is a talented director … of big-budget genre fare like “I Am Legend” and “Constantine.” But two-hour romantic dramas set in the world of a traveling circus? Three-ring boredom, ladies and gentlemen, no matter how pretty — how utterly golden-hued — the proceedings look. Christoph Waltz, the most deserving Oscar winner for his
