welcome to total film the smarter movie magazine

Feels like we’ve been living in a horror movie for the past few months, but this issue we decided to celebrate the shuddering chills coming our way on the big screen – an escape from real life we can’t wait to be terrified by. Slithering in first is the new Candyman, a reimagining of the movie that saw many of us scared to utter a word five times in a mirror. We got the lowdown on the bees, the hook and everything in between – plus looked ahead at everything else creeping its way towards us. For my part I got into the guts and gore of horror with a special-effects master whose making of the grue of bodily fluids was so fascinating he made me want to whip up…

DEAR WINGMAN I want to pursue a career as a Disney screenwriter, but I’m not sure which courses to opt for. A scriptwriting or creative writing degree? Or should I look at an Engineering BA in theme-park-ride design? It just seems like a natural Disney entry point given their ‘ride’ films: Pirates Of The Caribbean, Tomorrowland, Jungle Cruise! Can you please give career advice to a confused student? JACK HARGREAVES, VIA EMAIL WINGMAN SAYS… If you re considering Engineering, see if there’s a module that covers, erm, suspense-ion, since a couple of those ‘ride’ movies haven’t got the, erm again, balance right. The Haunted Mansion: less scary than Ghost Hunting With The Only Way Is Essex. The Country Bears: pure animatronic-aggedon. The only movie where Christopher Walken is the villain, yet induces less alarm…

With all this additional time, filmmakers have had the opportunity to further burn the midnight oil to hone, re-edit, add effects, enhance sound, redesign, refine… so that these movies will be the very best they can be.

You felt like a condemned prisoner getting a reprieve and spent those carefree days doing anything but the work at hand. and then desperately commenced Operation: Polish…

sins of the father

From Simon Killer to Christine, director Antonio Campos is no stranger to depicting the dark heart of humanity on screen. But his new film, The Devil All The Time, may just be his bleakest yet. “As a filmmaker, you don’t try and overanalyse why you’re telling the stories you’ve been telling, but at some point you look back and you go, ‘Wow, this seems to be a trend!’” chuckles Campos who, on the phone at least, is far warmer than his chilling films might lead you to believe. “Complicated people are interesting to spend time with, and to see if you can empathise with them,” Campos explains. “But part of the writing process here was coming to the conclusion that you can’t empathise with some people, that there is a certain…

I don’t have a roadmap for this shit – I grew up really, really fast. I learned to trust myself a lot more.” At 23 years old, Zendaya isn’t kidding. A singer-songwriter turned Disney Kid turned in-demand actress, Zendaya’s career has skyrocketed since her feature debut in 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming as Michelle ‘MJ.’ Jones, but it’s about to go intergalactic as she heads to the desert planet of Arrakis for Denis Villeneuve’s spicy sci-fi epic Dune. If there’s no road map, no one could fault Zendaya’s internal compass. A supporting role in The Greatest Showman saw her go platinum in the US and UK with the film’s furiously earwormy duet ‘Re-write The Stars’, while a potentially risky move to more adult-centric fare in HBO’s full-on high-school drama Euphoria was met with…

getting hitched

It’s a kind of film that’s in the consciousness, but people don’t really know it, the ins and outs of it. And I thought that was really interesting,” muses Ben Wheatley, over coffee during a break in filming at Hatfield House in Hertfordshire on a glorious sunny morning in June 2019. He’s talking about the 1940 Hitchcock classic, Rebecca, a critical and commercial smash that has lived long in cinema memory. But Wheatley’s follow-up to 2018’ s Happy New Year, Colin Burstead, is not a Hitch do-over. “This script is an adaptation of the book, it isn’t a remake of the Hitchcock film – which is an important difference,” he stresses. “When I read the script, I was like: I thought I knew it, and I didn’t. I didn’t know it…
