SPLICEDwire is on hiatus

Dear friends and readers,

Due to several converging circumstances, including family obligations and hitting a wall of exhaustion after 10 years of 70-hour work weeks (and more than 2,500 reviews and interviews), I'm putting SPLICEDwire and my content service on indefinite hiatus beginning September 30.

I will still be attending some screenings, as I will probably to return to film journalism -- perhaps in a new format or with a new focus -- once I've rested and my obligations are resolved.

If you would like to be notified when I return to writing about movies, please use this link to send me your email address

Be seeing you!

Rob Blackwelder

Here's the scoop:

Set in contemporary Moscow, NIGHT WATCH revolves around the conflict and balance maintained between the forces of light and darkness -- the result of a medieval truce between the opposing sides. As night falls, the dark forces battle the super-human "Others" of the Night Watch, whose mission is to patrol and protect. But there is constant fear that an ancient prophecy will come true: that a powerful "Other" will rise up, be tempted by one of the sides, and tip the balance plunging the world into a renewed war between the dark and light, the results of which would be catastrophic.
