Alex Garland's Devs looks to give us a menacing Nick Offerman

It might not be the most obvious opinion, but I consider Alex Garland a househould name. Giving us one of the best films of 2015 with Ex Machina and then the best film of 2018 with his Jeff VanderMeer adaptation Annihilation, Garland has p...

Review: Queen & Slim

Early on in Queen & Slim, after our inciting event of police brutality sets our titular duo on the run, a character greets the pair with the line "weell, if it isn't the black Bonnie and Clyde." The analogy is an easy one to draw, both ...

Review: The Good Liar

For the most part, I was completely engrossed by The Good Liar. A watertight plot, compelling performances from Ian McKellen and Helen Mirren -- their best outside their usual roles. To me, it seemed to herald an earlier time when a detec...

Review: 21 Bridges

With today's biggest movies often taking us to distant galaxies or featuring superhuman brawls, it doesn't seem often that we get big budget, glossy films about... regular people. Where's the tense thriller about plumbers rushing around in ...

Red Handed trailer sows a cultish family mystery

A dead patriarch, disturbed brother, missing child, mysterious lake, and secret pagan cult are a lot to stuff into one movie. It's like a plot pierogi ready to burst--but Red Handed is willing to risk spilling that hot potato filling all o...

Review: Doctor Sleep

Doctor Sleep is a strange thing. Part a sequel to Stanley Kubrick's seminal film The Shining and part an adaptation of Stephen King's seminal book The Shining it sits in an awkward spot. See, the film and the book have drasti...

Jeremy Saulnier's next film to star John Boyega

It's been awhile since we heard what Green Room director Jeremy Saulnier's been up to. 2018's Hold the Dark was a low-key Netflix feature, while the director helmed two episodes of True Detective's third season this past January. With ...

Booze and gun violence always mix in trailer for Bloody Marie

There are all sorts of ways to overcome an alcohol dependency--self-help books, therapy, Alcoholics Anonymous. One method covered much too rarely, however, is vigilante violence. Sometimes all you have to do is shoot a gangster with a flar...

Some rich idiot drops $200,000 on the ax from The Shining

We've all been there: You're in the final seconds of an eBay auction, and suddenly some sniper out to make your life miserable ratchets the price beyond what you know is reasonable. Your guts are boiling with fury. You're not thinking strai...

Review: The Spy

The Spy puts Sacha Baron Cohen in a darkly gripping, real-life tale of espionage, following the life of Egyptian-born Eli Cohen. The story traces his infiltration into the highest ranks of the Syrian government in the early 1960s, providi...

Review: Artik

Artik is a film in which a man is hammered in the skull. Another has a fork skewered under his jaw. People are tortured and killed with impunity. Its straight edge hero, however, is forced to face the most damning torture of all: Against hi...

Drive Angry director to treat us with Trick this October

If there's one thing I need everyone to know it's that I love Drive Angry. It's chaotic, wild, ridiculous midnight movie gold, and I cherish it dearly. This isn't all due to Nicolas Cage's performance, either, which was (dare I say) a bit w...

Review: The Nightingale

The Nightingale is a rough film. Which is to say, it covers some serious ground in its trek across the rugged Tasmanian wilderness, and not to question its technical merits. Following her debut with The Babadook in 2014, Jennifer Kent conti...

Artik trailer sets up a harrowing blood bath

Do comic books turn people into serial killers? The answer is a resounding "yeah, maybe" in this first trailer for Artik. The film follows one heavy-metal looking serial killer who's obsessed with comics--and looks to use illustrations to ...

Sean William Scott goes full Dexter in trailer for Bloodline

Blumhouse has just released its trailer for Bloodline, a horror in which Sean William Scott plays--get this--a serial killer who uses his job to only kill bad guys while at the same time raising a son who may carry the same kill-need in hi...

Oh no, a trailer for The Fanatic is here

We finally have it. Here's our trailer for the Fred Durst passion project once titled Moose. He and star John Travolta have decided to use a more generic title with The Fanatic, and I will give credit where credit is due. The title definit...

Review: Darlin'

Darlin' has followed a long and odd trajectory leading to its creation. This is actually the third film in a sort of trilogy, which started with 2009's Offspring, directed by Andrew van den Houten and based on a Jack Ketchum novel which its...

Review: Midsommar

If I'm being perfectly honest with myself, I've been pretty disillusioned with the horror genre in recent months. I really do hate to be the kind of old man that groans "they don't make them like they used to" but I really do think that hor...

Check out the festivities in new Midsommar trailer

The latest trailer for Ari Aster's Midsommar gives us a decidedly tongue-in-cheek look at the coming festival of beauty and misery. There's such gorgeous color and symmetry here as revelers even sit at symbolically-placed tables to eat din...
