Starfish trailer catches the eye with surreal wonder

My favorite animal as a child was a wolf, because I was a little boy, and wolves are objectively the coolest thing a little boy could like. As an adult I still find them very rad, and films featuring wolves (or weird deer) tick up about ei...

Review: Happy Death Day 2U

Happy Death Day, for me, was a movie that was crushed under expectations. What I wanted was a bloody slasher film that took Groundhog Day and turned it into an excuse for increasingly ridiculous death sequences. What I got was a P...

Contest: Win a Blu-ray copy of Arrow Video's Audition

You've got the part in today's contest for a Blu-ray copy of Arrow Video's release of Audition. I don't feel like Takashi Miike or any of his films really need a whole lot of words to describe them. If you've seen them, you know what's...

Dean Cain sells sex robots in trailer for 2050

If someone were going to sell me a sex robot, I'd hope it would be Dean Cain. Like any good Silicon Valley entrepreneur, he has a palpably greasy smarminess, but you kind of like it. That's sort of how I feel about all of 2050 from this tr...

Review: The Amityville Murders

How do you go about making a movie that's at once a based-on-a-true-story exploration of a murder mystery that most people have heard in one version or another, and also a cash-grab prequel to a horror classic that's nearing its fortieth an...

Tommy Wiseau teases Big Shark as his next directing effort

Tommy Wiseau, director and star of the cult classic The Room is back in the driver's seat after what I would declare was much too long an absence. If only he made a few more movies before being "discovered" by bad movie hounds for his biza...

Us Nightmare trailer lives up to its name

It's a little weird to be so early into the year and already have a pretty dead-on idea of what the best horror movie of the year will be. Jordan Peele's latest, Us is shaping up to be something pretty special as a straight horror film. It...

Review: Crossbreed

Everyone has a moment when they realize they've peaked. Maybe the so-called midlife is a reflex from this. You're sitting on the couch, watching Jeopardy, still trying to figure out why they ask with answers and answer with questions, and i...

Review: Piercing

The 1994 novel Piercing by Ryu Murakami remains one of my favorite stories. It's a tense, lurid, and disturbing tale. Its mechanics are straightforward enough as a sort of bizarre game of cat-and-mouse where the main character and the woman...

New Invisible Man film makes Dark Universe disappear!

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen wasn't all bad. There was that inside out looking Hyde mosnter, a neat effect with John Dorian, and Sean Connery being utterly exasperated at how this would be the movie that made him quit acting. There...

First trailer for Among the Shadows looks like an FMV game

I know people have problems with the Resident Evil movies. They go too far. They're not true enough to the games that inspired them. I get it, and I agree. If only there was a movie out there that looked to have the budget and costuming of...

Don't Leave Home trailer has gothic chills aplenty

Pick your movie about a young woman overeager to head to some spooky-ass place for an extended period of time who then realizes that said place is quite spooky indeed, but then it's too late, and she becomes trapped in whatever spooky shen...

Deep Analysis: Luca Guadagnino's Suspiria Remake (Part Two)

Welcome back to the second and final part of this in-depth look at Luca Guadagnino’s homage/remake of Suspiria. It was one of the most divisive horror movies of 2018, and while I admire the film, I’m still not sure if I necessar...

Hannibal Season 4 isn't dead yet, still being shopped around

Remember Hannibal? The cult classic show that NBC sent out to die repeatedly but just wouldn't? The one that was canceled well before its time? The one that took a graveyard shift timeslot to kill? My favorite TV show of all time? Well...

Kyle Yadlosky's Top Five Movies of 2018

Last year was not a very good year. Politics were garbage. Economics were garbage. The world is probably going to end in like thirty years. I'm never going to be able to buy a house, and if I did it would most likely be swept away in a stor...

SXSW attendees will have the first shot at seeing Us

In 2017, Jordan Peele hit a moonshot with his directorial debut with horror psycho-thriller Get Out. Up to then, Peele was viewed as a comedy guru with his time on Key & Peele and Keanu before dropping a surprising horror movie tha...

Review: Lifechanger

Robert is dying of some rot he doesn't understand. All he knows is that in order to ensure his survival he has to touch people and steal their skin, their voices, their memories, and everything that makes them who they are. Lifechanger begi...

Jordan Peele's Us trailer weirded out my mom

If you were to tell me five years ago that Jordan Peele was going to be one of the most compelling horror directors in Hollywood and win an Academy Award for his 2017 movie Get Out, I would wonder who you were and why you were asking me su...
