Nightcrawler: Jake Gyllenhaal Creepy Confident News Stringer Strikes Jarring Chord

Jake Gyllenhaal in Nightcrawler is the creepy confident news stringer who teaches himself the ropes and the film will strike a jarring chord with all who watch it. The movie’s unflinching look at the six o’clock news coverage of the terrible things that happen to the public, aka their viewing audience, by the use of roving camera teams will change how Mr. and Mrs. Average will see the news in general. The film punches home the fact that bad things happen to good people and that it takes the odd, creepy and dispassionate to capture these violent and gory events when they happen.

The Strain on FX: Guillermo del Toro Horror on the Small Screen

In 1975 Stephen King’s Salem’s Lot hit bookstores and created a new dose of Bram Stoker-ish horror, now Guillermo del Toro, along with Chuck Hogan, have updated vampire lore with The Strain which has been adapted and will premiere on FX; a dash of horror on the small screen. Just as King’s story looked at a vampire invasion of a small Maine town, Guillermo’s and Hogan’s story takes huge strokes across a similar canvas and shows New York being taken over as the first step to a vampiric “final solution” which will eradicate the human race.
