First trailer for boy scout horror film Cub

I really don't know what to expect from Cub. It premiered during the Toronto International Film Festival, and has a unique premise (cub scouts are attacked by a feral child) but the trailer doesn't look too appealing. Then again, we rarely get a chance to promote a Belgian horror film.  There's no domestic release date yet, but we'll keep an eye out for one. The poster's neat though.

Five new Tusk images show off our main characters, Michael Parks' stitchwork?

I really, really want Kevin Smith's Tusk to be good. I really did not like Red State, and this movie just looks so delightfully twisted. It's also the first in a trilogy of films, and if it's anything like his last&...

First red band trailer for The ABC's of Death 2

The ABCs of Death was a neat experiment in which twenty six different directors took a letter of the alphabet and crafted a horror short. With as frantic of a premise as that naturally some of the segments were more enjoyabl...

Underworld reboot in the works for some reason

Underworld: Awakening released over two years ago, so it's natural that there'd be talk of the next film in the series (since it also earned the most in the franchise). Awakening seemed to introduce new characters capable of ...

Review: As Above, So Below

So, every now and then, I get really excited about a movie from its trailer (which is the point of a trailer, of course). My top three, in no particular order, would probably be 21 Jump Street, Watchmen, and Guardians of...

Trailer for The Pyramid is yet another found footage movie

With Halloween just around the corner, we're going to run the gamut of horror films that all want that your hard earned candy money (I don't know how Halloween works). So we'll try our best to only tell you about the distinc...

Brawn vs. Brainless: Lionsgate picks up Arnold Schwarzenegger zombie film 'Maggie'

Arnold Schwarzenegger has fought a lot of things in his heyday: predators, mercenaries, illegitimate children, Satan, kindergartners, robots, and even mutants on Mars. One thing that he hasn't battled, to my knowledge, is a z...

Red Band Trailer for As Above, So Below is above and also below

Opening later this week, I'm pretty interested in As Above, So Below. Although I don't like the title, I've always wanted someone to utilize that giant grave site under the streets of France for some kind of horror thriller. It may look a bit more generic than I initially thought, but I'm hoping the setting helps alleviate some of that feeling.  As Above So Below releases August 29th.

Trailer for sasquatch film Exists, uh, exists

When I don't know how to react to a trailer I'm posting here, I like to rely on the running joke "Trailer for [Movie] exists." And I'd like to take the film, Exists, for completely throwing that joke out.  Anyway, ...

First teaser for The Woman in Black: Angel of Death

I've never seen 2012's The Woman in Black for myself, but I've heard good things. Not particularly about the film's plot, but hey, whatever works. Anyway, here's the first super brief teaser for its sequel, The Woman in Blac...

Review: Cam2Cam

In past reviews, I've written about the problems with poor subtitles on foreign films. Improper use of language serves as a distraction from the comedy or drama and makes the experience worse. I love the English language. It'...

Trailer for Open Windows features windows, they're possibly open

Open Windows is a film that probably could've been much better. It's got a lot of promise with a talented cast (Sasha Grey and Elijah Wood) and director (Nacho Vigalondo), but it falls apart toward the finale. It was the fir...

I was quite the fan of the relaunch of Evil Dead, and with rumors of Ash returning for a crossover at some point and a sequel pretty much confirmed things looked up for more ridiculous bloodshed and awesome. Then director Fed...

Sad news for those you like the boundary pushing of Eli Roth and the disturbing Cannibal Holocaust. His homage to that film, Green Inferno, has been put on hold indefinitely. It's not because of any controversy, surprisi...

Fantasia Review: WolfCop

Puns are a lot more interesting than most people give them credit for. While they're exceedingly easy to come up with and throw into literally every conversation ever, they're much harder to actually pull off. The title for t...

Regardless of our opinions on Kevin Smith here at Flixist, we always seem to find ourselves talking about him. It's because he's managed to turn his few successes into a huge marketing juggernaut with the "Askewniverse," pod...

New clip from Honeymoon is intriguing (and not spoiler-y)

Although I never reviewed it, Honeymoon was the best film I saw at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival. It's a cabin in the woods sort of film with some nice creep factor and incredible chemistry between the two main charact...

The Ring 3 gets director, reminds us it exists

Do you folks remember The Ring? It was a horror movie in which watching a VHS tape leads to your death in seven days when a ghost girl comes out of a TV to eat donuts or something. It was all the rage for about two weeks, the...
