A Must-See Satanic Panic Horror – Late Night With the Devil

Published

on

 

Written and directed by Cameron Cairnes & Colin Cairnes, Late Night With the Devil follows a late night TV host Jack Delroy, fighting the plummeting viewership of his show by welcoming in people from the occult in order to change that, but of course, everything doesn’t go as smooth as planned.

David Dastmalchian as Jack Delroy Late Night With the Devil (2023)

David Dastmalchian has appeared in a lot of films however always in smaller roles including The Dark Knight, Prisoners and more recently The Suicide Squad. This film allows Dastmalchian to take on the lead role of Jack Delroy, the host of the late night show at the centre of this film, and he genuinely does a great job. There’s a real range of emotions which his character goes through during the course of this film and he depicts them so well.

If you’re a fan of the horror genre, you’re going to really appreciate the use of practical effects in this. There’s plenty of stretchy and gooey gore for all of the horror fanatics that will have you shouting at the screen.

2024 Oscar Predictions: Who will Win – and who could?

Published

on

Picture Courtesy: The Academy

The 2024 Academy Awards promise to be a celebration of cinematic excellence, showcasing the diverse talent and creativity that have graced the silver screen over the past year. From breakout performances to groundbreaking storytelling, each category holds a trove of contenders vying for the coveted golden statuette. The race for Best Picture is often at the forefront of speculation, with films that resonate emotionally, socially, or artistically standing as prime contenders. This year, movies like ‘Oppenheimer,’ ‘The Zone of Interest,’ ‘Anatomy of a Fall‘, ‘Past Lives‘ and more are battling against each other to win the night’s top prize. All the movies in the category are different from each other and that’s why this year’s Oscars are so special.

Nolan’s ‘Oppenheimer’ has won every precursor prize and is poised to take home the most number of trophies at the 96th Academy Awards. It has received 13 nominations at this year’s event, just one shy of tying the record.

Meanwhile, the acting categories are a battleground of talent, where seasoned actors and rising stars are competing for the ultimate prize. From Cillian Murphy‘s haunting portrayal of J Robert Oppenheimer to Da’vine Joy Randolph’s stunning performance as the grieving mother, this year’s acting nominees didn’t leave any stone unturned to keep viewers on the edge of their seats.

Amidst the speculation and anticipation, predicting the Oscars involves a delicate balance of critical analysis, industry insights, and a touch of intuition. As the red carpet unfurls and the envelopes are opened, the 2024 Oscars will undoubtedly provide a night of suspense, surprises, and celebration for the extraordinary talent that has graced theaters throughout the year. Here are our final predictions in all the major categories for the 96th Academy Awards.

Best Picture

American Fiction
Anatomy of a Fall
Barbie
The Holdovers
Killers of the Flower Moon
Maestro
Oppenheimer
Past Lives
Poor Things
The Zone of Interest

Will Win: ‘Oppenheimer’
Could Win: ‘The Zone of Interest’

There seems to be no competition in this category. ‘Oppenheimer’ swept the entire awards season with the most number of accolades and won at every big event. So, it doesn’t come as a shock when every prediction list has ‘Oppenheimer’ as the winner in the list.

Best Director

Jonathan Glazer, The Zone of Interest
Yorgos Lanthimos, Poor Things
Christopher Nolan, Oppenheimer
Martin Scorsese, Killers of the Flower Moon
Justine Triet, Anatomy of a Fall

Will Win: Christopher Nolan, ‘Oppenheimer’
Could Win: Jonathan Glazer, ‘The Zone of Interest’

Jonathan Glazer did a fantastic job of giving viewers a different and haunting perspective of the Holocaust. However, it was Christopher Nolan who kept us on the edge of our seats with a 3-hour biopic. He made the aforementioned biopic the biggest film of the year and also the most important one.

Best Actor

Bradley Cooper, Maestro
Colman Domingo, Rustin
Paul Giamatti, The Holdovers
Cillian Murphy, Oppenheimer
Jeffrey Wright, American Fiction

Will Win: Cillian Murphy, ‘Oppenheimer’
Could Win: Paul Giamatti, ‘The Holdovers’

Cillian Murphy didn’t enter the race as the favorite. However, as time passed, it became clear that the guilds and critics associations realized how powerful his performance was. His wins at the Golden Globes, BAFTAs, SAG Awards, and Critics’ Choice Awards have made him an undeniable favorite in this category.

Best Actress

Annette Bening, Nyad
Lily Gladstone, Killers of the Flower Moon
Sandra Hüller, Anatomy of a Fall
Carey Mulligan, Maestro
Emma Stone, Poor Things

Will Win: Lily Gladstone, ‘Killers of the Flower Moon’
Could Win: Emma Stone, ‘Poor Things’

The Best Actress race this year is very interesting. The decision to have Gladstone in the Lead Actress category baffled everyone. But it seems the industry loved her work so much that it didn’t matter which category she was nominated in. Meanwhile, Emma Stone closely followed her and won several accolades for her performance in ‘Poor Things’. Although it’s pretty difficult to choose in this category, we’ll go ahead and predict Lily Gladstone as the winner. It would be a historical win for Gladstone and a welcome change as well.

Best Supporting Actor

Sterling K. Brown, American Fiction
Robert De Niro, Killers of the Flower Moon
Robert Downey Jr., Oppenheimer
Ryan Gosling, Barbie
Mark Ruffalo, Poor Things

Will Win: Robert Downey Jr.

Yep, here we don’t believe anyone else could take the trophy. By winning almost every award on the horizon, Downey Jr. has made it impossible to think of anyone else as the winner in this category. The actor took the world by storm by making a sort of comeback to more hard-hitting cinema. This is one of the few categories where the winner has already been chosen.

Best Supporting Actress

Emily Blunt, Oppenheimer
Danielle Brooks, The Color Purple
America Ferrera, Barbie
Jodie Foster, Nyad
Da’Vine Joy Randolph, The Holdovers

Will Win: Da’Vine Joy Randolph, ‘The Holdovers’

Another category where no one needs to think about who to choose. Da’Vine Joy Randolph’s stunning performance in ‘The Holdovers’ took everyone by storm. Since the beginning of this awards season, Randolph has been one of the few names who have managed to win accolades from the smallest groups of critics. So, Randolph is surely taking the trophy home.

Best Original Screenplay

Justine Triet and Arthur Harari, Anatomy of a Fall
David Hemingson, The Holdovers
Bradley Cooper and Josh Singer, Maestro
Samy Burch, May December
Celine Song, Past Lives

Will Win: Justine Triet and Arthur Harari, ‘Anatomy of a Fall’
Could Win: David Hemingson, ‘The Holdovers’

It’s a travesty that Justine Triet’s extraordinary ‘Anatomy of a Fall might not win many awards at the biggest night of Hollywood. However, the Screenplay category might turn out to be the one where Triet could triumph. Although she might face tough competition from Hemingson (‘The Holdovers’), ‘Anatomy of a Fall’ is the predicted winner in this category.

Best Adapted Screenplay

Cord Jefferson, American Fiction
Greta Gerwig and Noah Baumbach, Barbie
Tony McNamara, Poor Things
Christopher Nolan, Oppenheimer
Jonathan Glazer, The Zone of Interest

Will Win: Cord Jefferson, ‘American Fiction’
Could Win: Christopher Nolan, ‘Oppenheimer’/Greta Gerwig and Noah Baumbach, ‘Barbie’

Jefferson’s work in ‘American Fiction’ has made him earn several precursor prizes, but it seems highly possible that he’d be known as an Academy Award winner after Sunday’s event. But there’s a catch. The inclusion of ‘Barbie’ in this category has made this race a little unpredictable and some of the industry voters are still flabbergasted about how Barbie was not nominated in some categories. So, it’s a bit hard to choose the winner. However, we are going with ‘American Fiction’ as the winner in this category.

Best International Feature

Io Capitano, Italy
Perfect Days, Japan
Society of the Snow, Spain
The Teacher’s Lounge, Germany
The Zone of Interest, United Kingdom

Will Win: ‘The Zone of Interest,’ United Kingdom

This category had the power of being the most interesting one if ‘Anatomy of a Fall’ had been nominated here. However, the exclusion of the aforementioned title made it pretty obvious that Jonathan Glazer’s haunting exploration of the holocaust would emerge as the winner. It would be a well-deserved victory because it is nerve-wracking.

Best Animated Feature

The Boy and the Heron
Elemental
Nimona
Robot Dreams
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse

Will Win: ‘The Boy and the Heron’
Could Win: ‘Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse’

On a serious note, there are only two movies that are up for this award and both are technical marvels. However, it’s Hayao Miyazaki’s ‘The Boy and the Heron’ that soulfully explores several thought-provoking themes. Miyazaki has once again told the world that he is the greatest animator alive and continues to be a force to be reckoned with. The race will be very close, but we predict ‘The Boy and the Heron’ as the winner.

A still from ‘The Boy and the Heron’ (Studio Ghibli)

Best Documentary Feature

Bobi Wine: The People’s President
The Eternal Memory
Four Daughters
To Kill a Tiger
20 Days in Mariupol

Will Win: ’20 Days in Mariupol’
Could Win: ‘Four Daughters’

This is another category that is very difficult to predict. ’20 Days in Mariupol’ is an extraordinary take on the ongoing Ukraine-Russia war. It is brutal and heart-wrenching. However, ‘Four Daughters’ is one of the dark-horses here. The documentary shows the brutal effects of extremism and radicalization. Who will win? Well, we have chosen ’20 Days in Mariupol’ for its brutal portrayal of how war can be so devastating.

Predictions in Other Categories:

Best Documentary Short: ‘The ABCs of Book Banning’
Best Animated Short: ‘War Is Over! Inspired by the Music of John & Yoko’
Best Live-Action Short: ‘The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar’
Best Film Editing: ‘Oppenheimer’
Best Original Score: ‘Oppenheimer’
Best Cinematography: ‘Oppenheimer’
Best Costume Design: ‘Poor Things’
Best Makeup & Hairstyling: ‘Poor Things’
Best Original Song: ‘What Was I Made For?’, ‘Barbie’
Best Sound: ‘The Zone of Interest’
