Trailer: Slasher movie Happy Death Day could also be titled Groundhog Die

Happy Death Day looks like my cheesy kind of jam. Take the hook of Groundhog Day, apply it to a slasher movie, and--bing--you have my attention for 90 minutes. (But not a minute more.) Yes, Happy Death Day is like Groundhog D...   0

Trailer: Found-footage movie The Gracefield Incident has aliens and a high-tech glass eye

There will be no end to found-footage movies. (Barring some worldwide cataclysm that ends film and society as we know it, of course.) They're inexpensive and, in a handful of instances, innovative and inventive. Those rare fi...   0

Tom Holland reveals Spider-Man: Homecoming is the start of a new Spidey trilogy
