All Star Wars films will be on Disney+, even A New Hope

Review: Hellboy

Adaptation is a tough thing to nail. You can jump from one medium to another of course, but it feels like making the leap to the movies is the final destination for a lot of original works. You don’t hear of many video games or comic ...

Review: Ploey

I must confess, I may be a terrible parent. I conducted an experiment on my kids.  It wasn’t intended as an experiment, but it was one all the same and, as with any experiment, the results may be positive or may be negative....

Brightburn Trailer scares the hell out of some children

Peppa Pig Do you know Peppa Pig? I had to look up this child-friendly cartoon to fully understand the gravity of what was unleashed upon children in a UK theater this past weekend. The Peppa Pig movie is rated as universal in the UK, which ...

Review: Girls of the Sun

French director Eva Husson isn’t one to shy away from danger. Her previous film, Bang Gang (A Modern Love Story) pretty much says all you need to know about her head-on filmmaking style. While watching Girls of the Sun, the story of a...

American Horror Story teases slasher-themed ninth season

I get this uncanny feeling when I realize that American Horror Story has been running for nine seasons, now. Much like The Walking Dead, it remains in this sort of stasis from the moment I stopped watching it until now, and I have a hard ti...

Review: The Man Who Killed Don Quixote

The movie in your head is sometimes better than the actual movie. Think of the hype engendered by seeing good trailers and clips, or reading teases of the plot and descriptions of big scenes. The imagination fills in the gaps so well that t...

Live-action Lion King gets its official trailer

I've gotta say, for as much as I think studios need to be held accountable for unnecessary sequels, revivals, resurrections, blood sacrifices, reboots, and remakes, Disney seems to be doing right by their classic slate of animated films as ...

Review: Rottentail

Rottentail chokes a man using Easter egg-shaped turds that he "laid" himself. An army general takes a male-enhancement potion before being called to duty and patrols bloody halls of corpses and limbs with a full erection. When Rottentail ki...

I want to snort this trailer for Saint Bernard

Sometimes you see a movie that speaks to who you are at your core, a movie so perfectly in touch with your insides that you have trouble imagining that it's not an animated brain scan of your very subconscious--sometimes that includes a gi...

Preacher's fourth season to be its last

Preacher was always the little show that could. Ever since it debuted in 2016, the show always seemed to be a bit too odd for TV yet it still attracted an audience just large enough to justify being renewed. Even compared to its contemporar...

Review: The Haunting of Sharon Tate

It seems that with his recent death, Charles Manson has come back into vogue among purveyors of the horrific aspects of the human psyche. I for one never got the fascination as he was nothing more than a psychopathic racist who used drugs a...

Review: The Wind

The opening images of Emma Tammi’s The Wind set up the dread to come. Outside of a home on the frontier, two men wait. It is windswept and desolate and wordless, the light a cold, foreboding pre-dawn blue. A woman emerges in white, co...
