One thing comes as no surprise: Guillermo del Toro is a master of macabre imagery.
And even a glance at this wordless trailer for his upcoming gothic ghost story, Crimson Peak, reaffirms that: shot after shot, both beautiful and unsettling.
Jessica Chastain and Tom Hiddleston Crimson Peak
Directed and co-written by del Toro, Crimson Peak is clearly pulling out all the stops, with a score that is reminiscent of the old Universal classics, a production design as rich and bizarre as Hellboy or Pan’s Labyrinth, and a cast that’s reaching for a whole fistful of Oscars: Jessica Chastain, Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska, Charlie Hunnam and the ever-creepy Doug Jones, among many others.
Will there be a classic story to match the evil beauty of the trailer? After months of anticipation, we don’t have much longer to wait: Crimson Peak oozes into theaters on October 16. Here’s that trailer:
In Eli Roth’s terrifying new film, The GreenInferno, a group of college students take their humanitarian protest from New York to the Amazon jungle only to be taken prisoners by the indigenous tribe they came to save.
The film is entertaining, gory and bloody, and I enjoyed it. It has great music and cinematography. It even manages to showcase a couple of social issues that most people don’t pay attention to.
The GreenInferno marks Eli Roth’s return to directing for the big screen for the first time since his Hostel franchise.
The cast includes some of Roth’s usual suspects, Lorenza Izzo, Ariel Levy, Nicolás Martínez, Richard Burgi, and now Daryl Sabara, Kirby Bliss Blanton, Sky Ferreira, Magda Apanowicz, Aaron Burns, Ignacia Allamand, and Ramón Llao. —A.O.
I recently had a chance to sit down with Vivian Lamolli, the Miami native with a huge background in musical theater and choreography who has played a central role in Hulu’s hit, East Los High for the last two seasons, about her newest and craziest project: Once Upon A Time: The Rock Opera, a fun spoof of the original ABC show, Once Upon a Time.
Vivian is also involved with social issues and community events; she shared a fun PSA on condoms with me. You can watch it below and then sit back and listen in on our fun conversation.
Her conversation is just like Vivian herself: delightful, energetic, and full of surprises! You’ll like it:

You can find Latinos on TV on every network this year, and more important Latinos playing Latinos in positions of power, authority, and strength (as well as some pretty cool villains). Three shows arriving on one day–Wednesday, September 23–are emblematic of just how much Latino characters and culture is interwove in modern TV:
Law & Order: Special Victims Unit
The Mysteries of Laura (8P, NBC) co-stars Laz Alonzo as Debra Messing’s strong, smart and undeniably sexy partner.
Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (10P, NBC): Tony Award nominee Raul Esparza plays one of a long line of ADAs (and the first male) on Law & Order: SVU, Cuban-born Rafael Barba. This episode also guest-stars Liza Colon-Zayas, wife of David Zayas (Dexter, Gotham) and a friend of SefijaOnline!
Rosewood (8P, Fox), a new pathologist-detective story starring Morris Chestnut as Dr. Beaumont Rosewood, also stars Jaina Lee Ortiz as the distinctly bad-ass detective Analise Villa.
…and of course Sofía Vergara returns in Modern Family (8P, ABC) and though the role itself is still more than a little stereotypical, let’s not forget: she remains one of the most popular and the highest-paid woman (and therefore highest-paid Latina) in Hollywood today–for the third year running. And Rico Rodriguez is also back as her son, Manny.
…and then there’s Empire, beginning tonight at 8P on Fox. It has been and will be a home for many Latino guest stars and musical artists; in a couple of weeks we’ll also see Adam Rodriguez (Magic Mike XXL) as a new (and totally understandable) love interest for Taraji P. Henson’s “Cookie.”
And that’s just one day of the week, with Latinos as cops, attorneys, doctors, and rich powerful programs. There’s s much more to come.

The Black Mass was a perversion or unholy alliance in the Catholic Church, and it’s an apt descriptor of the new Johnny Depp movie about the corruption orchestrated by Jimmy “Whitey” Bulger–with the FBI’s blessing–in Boston in the 70’s.
“Southie” ties run deep in Boston. Jimmy (Depp) is adored by many neighborhood thug, and he grabs at the golden opportunity to eliminate the competition and seize territory by becoming a snitch for the FBI. The agent in charge is his boyhood admirer, John Connolly (Joel Edgerton), looking to still impress Jimmy, while Jimmy’s brother, Billy (Benedict Cumberbatch), a State Senator, turns a blind eye to Jimmy’s criminal behavior.
There’s great attention paid to the look and feel of Southie in Black Mass. The accents are spot-on. But the story itself runs flat and walks a fine line between convincing and cartoonish. Johnny Depp looking ashy, with piercing blue-eyes and a menacing presence. The story unfolds through Whitey’s supporting characters, led by Jesse Plemons, who provide a rich well of originality. The movie is light on women, which was problematic; the ones chosen made the most of their time on screen but leave you wondering what happened.
If nothing else, the production values alone makes this a movie worth seeing–and be sure to force yourself to sit through the end credits. They contain some of the best original footage and presentation of the whole film.
The Rest of the cast include: Kevin Bacon, Rory Cochrane, David Harbour, Dakota Johnson, Julianne Nicholson, James Russo, Adam Scott, Corey Stoll, Juno Temple, W. Earl Brown, Bill Camp, Brad Carter, and Jeremy Strong. And directed by Scott Cooper. — C.M.
As a photographer I enjoy learning about other amazing photographers and their careers. And the documentary, American Masters–Pedro E. Guerrero: A Photographer’s Journey was exciting to watch.

VOCES and American Masters first time collaboration in presenting the remarkable life and work of Pedro E. Guerrero (1917-2012), a Mexican American, born and raised in segregated Mesa, Arizona, who had an extraordinary international photography career.
The program explores his collaborations with three of the most iconic American artists of the 20th century: architect Frank Lloyd Wright and sculptors Alexander Calder and Louise Nevelson.
American Masters–Pedro E. Guerrero: A Photographer’s Journey premieres September 18 at 9P on PBS (check local listings) during National Hispanic Heritage Month. —A.O.
