As the release date for Steven King's second film adaptation of the year, It, draws near (September 8), Alamo Drafthouse has announced that at least one of its theaters will house a clown-only showing. As if the movie weren't terrifying eno...

Nosferatu remake will reteam The Witch star and director

On Tuesday it was confirmed that Anya Taylor-Joy, star of The Witch (which I will henceforth refer to by it's much cooler stylized title) and M. Night Shyamalan's Split was in talks to reunite with director Robert Eggers for the long report...

If you had told me that The Conjuring would spawn a franchise of horror films over the coming years from its release I would have been pretty surprised. Yet here we are with a sequel to a spin-off from that film. Who knows how long the...

Your Bad Movie Night Guide, Vol. 2: Zombeavers

Some movies are so bad they're good. Like last week's entry, Shark Attack 3: Megalodon; while it appears that it must have been somewhat selfaware (one would hope), at other times, it clearly took itself plenty seriously. Or, ...

NYAFF Capsule Review: Mon Mon Mon Monsters

Giddens Ko’s You Are the Apple of My Eye remains one of the best films I’ve seen at the New York Asian Film Festival. Café. Waiting. Love, which he wrote but did not direct, is another film I enjoyed immensely. So when I ...

The Walking Dead Season 8 gets a release date

Ah, San Diego Comic Con. It is a time of celebration, of renewal, of congregating with your fellow nerds and geeks, to peer inside the entertainment industry and see what lays for thou over the horizon. Truly, it is a time unlike any other,...

New Death Note Poster looks better than the Show

You remember Death Note, right? No, I'm not talking about the critically-acclaimed anime, or its manga counterpart. I'm talking about the Adam Wingard directed, takes-place-in-the-US-Netflix-original-movie known as Death Note. The last time...

Saw 8 has title: Jigsaw ... comes with weird puzzley graphic

Because Hollywood is the land of opportunity [read: a complete and utter lack of originality] and audiences are so nuanced of taste and subtly responsive to the creative processes of their filmmakers [read: sheeple who will watch utter garb...

Review: 47 Meters Down

47 Meters Down is a shark movie—if shark movie is a genre. No, not the campy, so-good-they’re-bad shark movies we’ve been getting for a decade and a half now [ask anyone I know—my favorite of these is Shark Attack 3&...

47 Meters Down released a trailer a month ago: who knew?

Really, this movie is so little on the radar that its trailer got no PR and had been out for a month before I saw a spot watching the NBA Finals (widely known fact that basketball fans love shark movies nearly as much as they do seeing huge...

See Alien: Covenant early and free

Ridley Scott is bringing the Xenomorphs back to where they should be. After the weirdness that was Prometheus it looks like the franchise will be returning to its horror roots. Or at least a rickety spaceship with people dying in it. Want t...

Review: The Void photo

Review: The Void

The 80s aesthetic is chic these days in genre films. Just take a look at Beyond the Black Rainbow, It Follows, or The Guest, among others. Homage and pastiche don't guarantee quality, of course, but it's an indicator that more and more...

 
 
 
Review: Colossal photo

Review: Colossal

One of my least favorite movie cliches goes something like this: A person who lives in the city has an existential crisis. They reluctantly return to their hometown, where things are much simpler and quieter. The main character reconnects w...
