Review: 2050

"I don't make pizza," Dean Cain says alone in a warehouse next to the disembodied bust of a mannequin. He smiles and bites into an inexplicable apple. In a movie rife with lonely, delusional men, he might be the loneliest and most delusiona...

Starfish trailer catches the eye with surreal wonder

My favorite animal as a child was a wolf, because I was a little boy, and wolves are objectively the coolest thing a little boy could like. As an adult I still find them very rad, and films featuring wolves (or weird deer) tick up about ei...

Dean Cain sells sex robots in trailer for 2050

If someone were going to sell me a sex robot, I'd hope it would be Dean Cain. Like any good Silicon Valley entrepreneur, he has a palpably greasy smarminess, but you kind of like it. That's sort of how I feel about all of 2050 from this tr...

Review: The Amityville Murders

How do you go about making a movie that's at once a based-on-a-true-story exploration of a murder mystery that most people have heard in one version or another, and also a cash-grab prequel to a horror classic that's nearing its fortieth an...

Tommy Wiseau teases Big Shark as his next directing effort

Tommy Wiseau, director and star of the cult classic The Room is back in the driver's seat after what I would declare was much too long an absence. If only he made a few more movies before being "discovered" by bad movie hounds for his biza...

Us Nightmare trailer lives up to its name

It's a little weird to be so early into the year and already have a pretty dead-on idea of what the best horror movie of the year will be. Jordan Peele's latest, Us is shaping up to be something pretty special as a straight horror film. It...

Review: Crossbreed

Everyone has a moment when they realize they've peaked. Maybe the so-called midlife is a reflex from this. You're sitting on the couch, watching Jeopardy, still trying to figure out why they ask with answers and answer with questions, and i...

Review: Piercing

The 1994 novel Piercing by Ryu Murakami remains one of my favorite stories. It's a tense, lurid, and disturbing tale. Its mechanics are straightforward enough as a sort of bizarre game of cat-and-mouse where the main character and the woman...

First trailer for Among the Shadows looks like an FMV game

I know people have problems with the Resident Evil movies. They go too far. They're not true enough to the games that inspired them. I get it, and I agree. If only there was a movie out there that looked to have the budget and costuming of...

Don't Leave Home trailer has gothic chills aplenty

Pick your movie about a young woman overeager to head to some spooky-ass place for an extended period of time who then realizes that said place is quite spooky indeed, but then it's too late, and she becomes trapped in whatever spooky shen...

As Netflix hikes its base price to $13, Hulu has decided to make a keen business move and slash their own. Starting February 26, Hulu's lowest-tier ad-supported service will drop from $7.99 to $5.99. This won't affect their ad-free subscrip...

MoviePass launches new plans to try to win you back

MoviePass is somehow still trucking. With the five dollars in spare change its investors found under the couch cushions, the company's making another go of it. They'll now be relaunching the service with new pricing schemes that make more f...

Kyle Yadlosky's Top Five Movies of 2018

Last year was not a very good year. Politics were garbage. Economics were garbage. The world is probably going to end in like thirty years. I'm never going to be able to buy a house, and if I did it would most likely be swept away in a stor...

Review: Lifechanger

Robert is dying of some rot he doesn't understand. All he knows is that in order to ensure his survival he has to touch people and steal their skin, their voices, their memories, and everything that makes them who they are. Lifechanger begi...

Greta trailer reminds us that lonely old women are monsters

One time I found this crumpled black-and-white photo of a dude on the sidewalk, and this old lady started waving at me. She called out that the photo was of her dead husband and it was the most precious thing in the world to her. She wante...

Here's some VOD junkfood for your Halloween movie marathon

With Halloween landing on a Wednesday this week, you might have found yourself in a dilemma: You spent the entire Halloweekend gorging yourself on spooks and scares, and now with the actual day fast approaching you have nothing left to watc...

Review: Blessed Are the Children

Blessed Are the Children is a slasher flick with an intriguing hook. Imagine if the Westboro Baptist Church ghouls who gained notoriety for their vitriolic protests of abortion clinics and funerals stalk a young woman who terminated a pregn...

Review: An Evening With Beverly Luff Linn

2016's The Greasy Strangler was a landmark in absurdist comedy. It was a grotesque live action cartoon of weird-looking folks, deformed dongs, and a whole lot of grease. It was a flapjack tower of weird piled on top of weird and drenched in...

Nicole Kidman goes bad lieutenant in Destroyer trailer

Nicole Kidman isn't one to shy from darker films like last year's crippling The Killing of a Sacred Deer, but Destroyer may see her at her most transformed. She's as scorched as the desert surroundings, more than a few screws short, and on...

Review: Johnny Gruesome

Johnny Gruesome's theme song describes its title character with more poetry than I could dream to achieve: "I died in anger. I want revenge. The only color I see is red. I'm not gonna stop. Blood is gonna drop, until everybody is dead. With...
