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...

According to a report tonight from Variety, David Fincher is close to a deal to direct World War Z 2, the sequel to the 2013 Brad Pitt zombie film loosely adapted from the book by Max Brooks. While Fincher is apparently wary of sequels, Var...

 
 
 
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...

 
 
 
Review: Raw photo

Review: Raw

While playing at film festivals last year, the hype over Raw was insane. Writer/director Julia Ducournau's coming-of-age horror/cannibal drama purportedly caused audience members to faint, to vomit, to leave screenings in distress. These ar...

Alien: Covenant gets a prologue with food and drinking

Yesterday we got our first good look at the crew of Alien: Covenant and today we have a bit of a prologue to the film that's been released. "Prologue: Last Supper" doesn't really tell us much, but it has fun playing with some of Alien&...

 
 
 
Get Out Review photo

Review: Get Out

There's a story I heard but cannot verify about why Dave Chapelle ended The Chapelle Show when he did, with tens of millions of dollars on the line. So the story goes, he was working on a sketch that dealt prominently with race issues,...

The Tales from the Crypt reboot has trailers now

There are episodes of Tales from the Crypt that are eternally stuck in my mind. The show's combination of horror, weirdness, violence and nudity made it an instant cult classic when it was on. Also, there was the comic, but I didn't re...

New image for Alien: Covenant teases new trailer

When the first trailer for Alien: Covenant landed I was pretty excited as it looked like a true return to from for the series after the oddness of Prometheus. I mean just check out this new picture; it's basically a small crew waiting ...

Review: A Cure for Wellness

Gore Verbinski has always been a peculiar director. I've been a fan of his ever since he did remarkable work adapting the Japanese film Ringu into The Ring (a series that has not fared well in his absence), but choices in Pirates of the Car...
