"Once you #39;ve dived with someone and all goes well, you have this bond you #39;re not able to replicate in other situations, " she says. Hollywood Divers (the name is a work in progress) "is really about building and forging that community and creating a link between these two worlds. "

The plot sees Andy Nyman reprising his role from the play as Professor Phillip Goodman, a television personality and academic who has devoted his life to debunking paranormal charlatans who trap and exploit people with superstition. He is invited to meet Charles Cameron, a famous paranormal investigator from the 70s, who presents him with the three cases that he could not explain during his career. He asks Goodman to investigate them, and see if he still considers himself a rational man of science once he was seen what s in these files.This neatly allows the film to be structured in a portmanteau style, in what is certainly a direct homage to the cult British anthology horrors of the 60s and 70s produced by Amicus. The first case is about Tony (Paul Whitehouse), a night watchman in an abandoned asylum, who is haunted by the spirit of a former patient. In terms of pure visceral thrills, this sets a very high bar for the rest of the film. A classic haunting, playing with the most primal fears of being alone in the dark but then something even worse not being alone in the dark. Dyson and Nyman s understanding of horror is unquestionable.

Simply put, The Little Hours ” is pretty much Nunsense that makes no sense. It 's also not likely to garner favor at the Vatican, as Jeff Baena 's loosy goosy adaptation of Giovanni Boccaccio 's 14th century collection of short stories, The Decameron, ” captures the clergy with its pants down and habits doffed. The nudity is rampant, the trysts frequent and the F bomb is uttered so often it would make Tarantino blush. Is this any way to run a convent? Baena and his stellar cast of comedians seem to think so, as they throw caution ndash; and their clothes ndash; to the wind in a sex farce that knows no limits to its blasphemy. Set in Tuscany, circa 1347, the story revolves around the very unholy behavior of three nuns (Aubrey Plaza, Alison Brie, Kate Micucci); their wanton mother superior (Molly Shannon); and the wine swilling abbot (John C. Reilly). All of them disobey their vows with impunity, lying down with men, women and witches. Good for them. But why should we care, let alone laugh at their various indiscretions? There 's no story to speak of, just a series of thinly drawn sketches meant to shock with their ribald mindset and expletive laden anachronisms. The three nuns talk and act like 21st century teenagers full of sass and vitriol. They see the hypocrisy of the Church and take glee in mocking it with their randy behavior. If you dare say hello, they will retort with a barrage of F bombs, most of them directed at the convent 's groundskeeper, who they send fleeing in a snit. Then in walks Dave Franco 's Massetto, a refugee from a neighboring manor and its royally ticked off lord (Nick Offerman) who wants the lad 's head after catching him fornicating with milady of the house. With the help of Reilly 's Father Thomasso, Massetto takes up residence and establishes a new identity as the convent 's deaf mute ” servant. And if you look as hunky as Dave Franco, you can guess how the horny nuns respond to his arrival. What ensues is something akin to The Beguiled ” meets Monty Python and the Holy Grail, ” only not as funny. In fact, most of the genuine laughs don 't arrive until around an hour in, when Fred Armisen shows up as the order restoring archbishop. He 's hilarious in the film 's best scene, a tribunal where he stands in judgment of the nuns, mother superior and Father Thomasso, as he reads laundry lists of charges leveled against them. Infractions range from being hopped up on belladonna to being a Jew pretending to be a Catholic. There 's also something about one of them practicing sorcery during a sacrifice of Massetto, who is tied to an altar with an orgy of stark naked witches dancing around him. I guess you had to be there. Trust me, though; it 's funny. The rest, not so much, although the performances (including Jemima Kirke from Girls ” and Paul Reiser) are sublime, top to bare bottom. They keep you watching long after you 've sworn off their odious brand of religion. You admire them, too; especially the women, who use the movie as a forum on how many faiths reduce females to second class citizens. Here, they are empowered and emboldened ndash; and it 's an uplifting trip. But how much more involving might it have been if Baena provided them a coherent story with honest to goodness character arcs? We 'll never know, but even with its shortcomings, The Little Hours ” is still better than 80 percent of the junk passing itself off as entertainment this summer. And at a scant 85 minutes, it 's a cheesy, breezy way to indulge in a little sacrilege without need of repentance. THE LITTLE HOURS (R for graphic nudity, sexual content and language.) Cast includes Alison Brie, Aubrey Plaza, Kate Micucci, Dave Franco, Molly Shannon, John C. Reilly and Fred Armisen. Grade: B .

James Cameron, patron saint of sci fi sequels, is weighing in on a sci fi sequel. Speaking in an expansive, otherwise excellent interview with Vulture, Cameron was asked about Ridley Scott apos;s upcoming Alien: Covenant, and had this to say (emphasis my own): "The franchise has kind of wandered all over the map. Ridley (Scott) did the first film, and he inspired an entire generation of filmmakers and science fiction fans with that one movie and there have been so many films that stylistically have derived from it, including my own Aliens, which was the legitimate sequel and, I think, the proper heir to his film. "
