Review: Slender Man

Slender Man hasn't been relevant in internet culture for years. Remember how back in 2012 Slender Man was all of the rage? Youtubers were going nuts over Slender: The Eight Pages, there were a bunch of fan games, an...

I got your OATS Shorts right here

I have to admit when Neill Blomkamp said he was going to be releasing a bunch of new short films for free through both Steam and YouTube I was skeptical about the quality of them or how much I would enjoy them. This is not to say that I don...

Logan trailer in LEGO photo

Watch the trailer for Logan recreated with LEGO

The trailer for Logan really impressed me. If Hugh Jackman's last ride as Wolverine is a post-apocalyptic road movie western, I am all for that. Better it's something distinctly non-X-Men-looking rather than some dumb, rote X-Men flick. (Of...

Kung Fury is finally here and it is everything

I'm just going to leave this here with a hearty recommendations. Usually awesome trailers fleshed out fall flat, but the 30 minute Kung Fury movie is a masterpiece of modern cinema and possibly the only film that will ever hold a candl...

Severus Snape and the recut of the Harry Potter movies

I love fan edits. I'm a strong believer in the idea that a work of art does not become rigid and untouchable when released, but remains alive and malleable for as long as we allow it to be. They're always messy, and often incompetent, but ...

Judge Dredd Superfiend gets first teaser

While we may all be chomping at the bit for a return of Karl Urban's Judge Dredd, I think we were happy to hear about the film's producer Adi Shankar taking the character further through a mini-series like he did with The Punisher. Sadly o...

Sion Sono casting his next movie via Youtube auditions

I'm not the biggest Sion Sono fan in the world, but I generally respect the man and his work, even if he did ask my not-yet-girlfriend to marry him back when she was a minor. That's totally not cool, dude. Anyways, for his upcoming film, an...

Hammer launches YouTube channel w/ free films and more

Hammer is the iconic studio of British horror, particularly those swank period Dracula and Frankenstein movies starring Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing. They've been making a comeback after years in limbo, one harkened by Let Me In (the E...

Flix for Short: Scary Smash

Taking a child's incoherent ramblings and turning them into an actual story isn't the newest idea on the block, but when you put Joss Whedon, Dave Foley and Kate Miucci into the mix it becomes fresh all over again. To kick off the new seri...

Papercraft Prometheus trailer is awesome, so much work

Man, I can't imagine how long this hand-made papercraft trailer for Ridley Scott's Prometheus must have taken. Made entirely out of paper by Travis Betz, this trailer basically follows shot-for-shot one of the theatrical trailers for Prome...

The Dark Knight meets Hitchcock in video mashup

Who doesn't love the opening bank robbery scene in The Dark Knight? It's really an amazingly crafted sequence, and hey, it's Batman. I also love it when people overlay different music on movies and it just seems so...right. YouTube user Pl...

Korean Film Archive Youtube channel is awesome, free

Generally speaking, the Korean films that make it to over to our shores are pretty modern. You don't see a lot of movies from the 1990s on store shelves, let alone from the 1940s and '50s. Fortunately, the Korean Film Archive has stepped in...
