    Review: 'Doctor Who: Day Of The Doctor' Is A Fitting & Hugely Enjoyable 50th Anniversary Tribute

    Writing for a pop culture institution like long-running British sci-fi series "Doctor Who," you're bound to feel a certain degree of pressure.

    NYFF '13: Jim Jarmusch and Tilda Swinton on 'Only Lovers Left Alive,' Creating Their Own Vampire Mythology and Why Hollywood Film Music Is Boring

    John Hurt Also In CastThe idea of the vampire, that of the undead creature that survives by feeding off the blood of living people -- is an enormously resilient, resonant one, so it makes sense that there continue to be dozens of stories about them -- barely a year has gone by in the history of cinema without at least one example. But the last few years, it's gotten ridiculous: from blockbusters like "Twilight" and the upcoming "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter," to indies like "Let The Right One In" and its American remake, to TV series like "True Blood" and "The Vampire Diaries," the damn things are everywhere, and we can't be the only peopl...
