BANG BANG BABY: High School, Rock And Roll, And Mutants In The Trailer For Canadian Oddity

Evil Dead star Jane Levy takes the lead opposite Justin Chatwin in Jeffrey St Jules' award winning Canadian oddity Bang Bang Baby. How odd? Picture an early 1960's sock hop musical featuring a lonely high school girl, a rock and...

Rock And Roll Love Story Stricken By Mutant Fears In BANG BANG BABY Trailer

Life's not easy growing up in small town Canada in the early 1960s, not even if you're Jane Levy. Your dreams are bigger than home, of course, and limited by your alcoholic father (Peter Stormare). The rock and roll singer...

Destroy All Monsters: Dance, Clones! It's All Television Now

Movies are imagery, and the best of them supply the images by which we contextualize our lives; and if this is so, 2014 is fast becoming the year those images came more from the small screen than from the big....

Review: ORPHAN BLACK S1E06, VARIATIONS UNDER DOMESTICATION (Or, It's A Party At Alison's And Everyone's Invited Except Max Headroom)

Twice now fledgling scifi thriller Orphan Black has turned in what I'd consider a true misfire of an episode. And twice it has followed up that dog with an absolutely sterling example of what the show can do when firing...

Review: ORPHAN BLACK S1E05, CONDITIONS OF EXISTENCE (Or, The More They Talk The Less Interesting This Show Is And This Week They Talk A Lot)

Review: ORPHAN BLACK S1E03, VARIATION UNDER NATURE (Or, It Was The Worst Of Times, It Was The Best Of Times)

After a strong debut and a second effort that dipped a bit while retaining a sense of what made the launch so appealing, episode three of Orphan Black spends the first two thirds of its running time pretty much completely...

Review: ORPHAN BLACK S1E02, INSTINCT (Or, The Conspiracy Widens)

While it is true enough to say that the second episode of fledgling BBC America hit Orphan Black is somewhat calmer than the hyperkinetic pilot it is important to note that 'calmer' is an entirely relative term. And in the...

Review: ORPHAN BLACK S1E01, NATURAL SELECTION (Or, Darwin Would Be Pleased With This Kinetic Thriller)

Full marks to the cast and crew of new scifi thriller series Orphan Black - a co-production of BBC America and Canada's Space network - for striking a neat balance between smarts, style and raw, pulpy entertainment value. Science fiction...

ORPHAN BLACK Creators John Fawcett And Graeme Manson Talk Origins And Clones

It was back in late 2012 that ScreenAnarchy first caught wind of upcoming BBC America original series Orphan Black, which will air here in Canada on Space. It was of particular interest for a number of reasons. First, any time...
