Recap: The Walking Dead Season 7 Finale

Season seven of AMC’s The Walking Dead began with the bat and it looked like things might end that way too.  We began, back in October, with the group at their all-time low point: they had been outmaneuvered at every turn; out-pl...

Brad Pitt wants David Fincher back ... for World War Z sequel

Ever since World War Z blew audiences away back in 2013 (read: made $540 million at the worldwide box office) the people have been clamoring for a sequel (read: its producers have been dying to milk a sequel for all its worth, no matter tha...

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter gets first trailer

If you had told me that back in 2002 the Resident Evil movie -- a fun enough action horror flick -- would spawn one of the longer running and relatively successful action series in cinematic history I would have cut you up with my newl...

 
 
Train to Busan Review photo

Review: Train to Busan

In my review of Yeon Sang-Ho's Seoul Station from this year's New York Asian Film Festival, I said that I felt it would have been better as a live-action film than it was as an animated one. There was just something about its visu...

NYAFF Capsule Review: Seoul Station

At NYAFF 2012, I saw a movie called The King of Pigs. I wanted to like it, but I couldn't get over the atrociously bad translation. It ruined what should have been a very serious dramatic animated film. Seoul Station is also a very ser...

 
 
Last of Us photo

The Last of Us movie probably isn't happening any time soon

Two years ago we got word that a The Last of Us movie was in the works, and then nothing, but some rumors on casting and whispers of a table read. Many of us probably forgot about it, shrugging our shoulders as we replayed the remaster...

 
 
 
Summer Camp Review photo

Review: Summer Camp

In Resident Evil 4, Leon S. Kennedy is dropped in a Spanish village. He's an all-American hero (by way of Japan), but his enemies don't speak his language. The characters talk, but they speak Spanish.  To a Spanish speaker, this may no...

The Walking Dead Season 6 Recap: "Thank You"

The trouble with The Walking Dead is that when I can't watch it on time, everyone on the Internet sees fit to spoil literally every single event of every episode. You can argue that I should just stay off the Internet when that happens, but...

See Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse early and free

The Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse is going to go one of two ways. It will either be a hilarious send up of childhood adventure films or a mediocre raunchy comedy featuring zombies. At the moment I'm leaning towards the latter, ...

The Walking Dead Season 6 Recap: "JSS"

I missed the start of Walking Dead's sixth season due to familial complications, but after finally getting to watch it sometime later, I didn't regret the missing coverage. You see despite being an hour and a half premiere (as Walking Dead ...

Fear the Walking Dead Season Finale Recap: "The Good Man"

Just like with its parent series, Fear the Walking Dead has been experiencing some growing pains within its very short, six episode first season. As the biggest draw, the zombies, took a backseat to a more intimate story of family troubles,...

Fear the Walking Dead Season 1 Recap: "Cobalt"

The show's been very confident in its long game. After immediately getting picked up for a second season, I'm sure the showrunners knew they'd have time to build up to a satisfying story. It may have been rough before the Labor Day weekend,...

Fear the Walking Dead Season 1 Recap: "Not Fade Away"

I've been one of the many people decrying Fear the Walking Dead's lack of anything interesting to latch on to. It's a slow burn of a show, but was poorly handling why we needed to stick around to see the result. But surprisingly, I may have...

 
 
Cooties Review photo

Review: Cooties

Zombies are everywhere. Name an object and add zombie or "of the dead" to it, and I guarantee there's a film out there with that title. Bong of the Dead? Exists. Toilet of the Dead? Surprisingly a thing. Redneck or stripper zombies? Been th...

Fear the Walking Dead Season 1 Recap: "The Dog"

I stand by what I said last time and believe the Labor Day week off was definitely a death knell for Fear the Walking Dead. Though it needs to finish its six episode season before The Walking Dead premieres next month, it didn't really earn...

Fear the Walking Dead Season 1 Recap: "So Close, Yet So Far"

After Fear the Walking Dead's first episode set its slow burning tone for the rest of the season, and thus set it further apart of The Walking Dead's current craziness, it left a lot of folks wanting. Opinions were divided as most folks wer...

Fear the Walking Dead Series Premiere Recap: Pilot

It's pretty much guaranteed Fear the Walking Dead's premiere will be compared to The Walking Dead's first episode. While the latter's premiere gave birth to a juggernaut, Fear most likely will be unfavorably, and unfairly, judged in the lon...

Watch Fear the Walking Dead premiere's opening scene

Regardless of what you think of The Walking Dead, it's become this juggernaut of a thing. I'm not into much anything going on, yet I still park my butt every Sunday and watch it with everyone else. It's the closest we'll ever get to event p...

 
 
Maggie Review photo

Tribeca Review: Maggie

Maggie is one of the last things you'd expect out of Arnold Schwarzenegger. Abigail Breslin, who plays the title character? Okay. Joely Richardson, who plays Maggie's stepmother? Sure. But not Arnie. Though Maggie's a post-apocalyptic zombi...

Trailer for Joe Dante's Burying the Ex buries itself deep

Joe Dante has had a string of mediocre films lately. A formerly quirky name in the horror genre, with films like Gremlins and Small Soldiers, but after directing a bunch of television and whatever exactly The Hole was, his directing hasn't...

 
 
Dead Rising Review photo

Review: Dead Rising: Watchtower

Videogames have had a rough time in cinema. Since videogames are such an interactive medium, a film adaptation always misses out on the intimacy of player involvement or the videogame's story struggles to find an identity in a new medium. B...

First teaser trailer for Dead Rising: Watchtower

For a film based off the cheesy Dead Rising videogames going straight to Sony's Crackle streaming service, this doesn't look that bad. Doesn't have enough Frank West covering wars though. Dead Rising: Watchtower is available March 27th.&nb...

World War Z sequel starting with a clean slate

We here at Flixist actually dug World War Z despite it's horrible third act, which was rewritten and abandoned many of the book's themes to give us a happy ending. Despite all the troubles the movie had it still came out and made $540 ...

Here's our first look at Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

Did you know there was an adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's novel, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies in the works? It's been in development hell for quite some time with a script that's been written and rewritten many times over. But hey, if...

Rob Riggle is Frank f**king West

Remember when I told you all that a movie based on the Dead Rising videogame series was in the works for Sony's Crackle digital service? Yeah, I wasn't thrilled about the concept either, but proving movies work in mysterious ways, I'm now e...

Zombieland 2 is undead, gets new writer

Last we heard about a sequel to the 2009 film Zombieland, was about two years ago when the kibosh was effectively put on any sequel talk. Then last year talk had begun of a Zombieland TV series for Amazon's Instant Video. But after the pilo...

Dead Rising movie gets a director

Wait, did we ever get around to telling you all there's a film based on the almost popular Dead Rising videogames in the works? You think we're ready for the zombie parade again? If there's any good zombie idea, it's how Dead Rising has one...

SXSW Review: Doc of the Dead

Zombies are some of the most divisive creatures in the horror genre. They've become such a big entity, the zombie film has grown into a genre all its own complete with multiple variations, multiple looks, and multiple medias. Their influenc...

SXSW Review: The Desert

The Desert is a strange beast. A low-budget Argentinian zombie film where the main way money was saved was by having almost no zombies in the film at all. In fact the camera almost never leaves the house the three protagonists are living in...
