Anyhow, in the present day, Shaye’s Anna still lives in the same house where those awful events occurred, and her college-age granddaughter Alex (Gabrielle Haugh) has moved back in to look after her in the wake of her mother’s death. This home is one (ostensibly) spooky place, with a wall full of clocks, a freaky mannequin that you just know is only there so it can start moving by itself later, lights that all seem to be at half power and a constant low hum on the soundtrack.
Following up his acclaimed THE EYES OF MY MOTHER, writer/director Nicolas Pesce adapted a novel by AUDITION author Ryu Murakami to make PIERCING, which world-premieres at the Sundance Film Festival this weekend. A new poster has just been released; see it after the jump. PIERCING, which Pesce first told us about here, has its debut screening at Sundance this Saturday, January 20 at 11:59 p.m., followed by several more showings over the following week.
It’s interesting that you used the phrase “little monsters”; there’s a long tradition of horror films where children turn against their parents, but not so many where the reverse takes place. It’s kind of a taboo subject that has only been explored in a few films like THE BABADOOK. Was there a sense of pushing into transgressive territory with MOM AND DAD? Yeah, somewhat.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
