Friday One Sheet: Baby It's A COLD PURSUIT Outside...

Cold Pursuit is latest in a series of Liam Neeson revenge pictures. It is a remake of Hans Petter Moland's (here directing again) thriller, In Order Of Disappearance, which starred Stellan Skarsgård and Bruno Ganz. The 2014 version had a...

Review: THE HOUSE THAT JACK BUILT Reveals Shoddy Construction Methods

Much has been made of the cruelty, gore, and misogyny on display in The House That Jack Built, Lars von Trier's latest cinematic provocation. As an avid horror fan with a fairly strong stomach, I was not deterred by this....

THE LAST JEDI Was A Star Wars Fan's Star Wars Film... Until It Wasn't

It's been a year since the release of the eighth "saga" Star Wars film, Rian Johnson's The Last Jedi, and I still don't get it. Not the movie -- I "got" the movie by about its 2-hour mark -- but...

Blu-ray Review: Scream Factory's CANDYMAN Release Is Truly Sweet

"Candyman. Candyman. Candyman. Candyman. Candyman." I didn't say it out loud, or in front of a mirror, because nope. NOPE. And of course, I know that Tony Todd is an actual human being who plays the urban legend and anti-hero, but I still won't...

Blu-ray Review: ELIZABETH HARVEST Re-Imagines BLUEBEARD

One of the many releases just out now from Scream Factory is the 2018 film Elizabeth Harvest, from Sebastian Gutierrez. It stars Abbey Lee (The Neon Demon), Ciarán Hinds (Game of Thrones), and Carla Gugino (Gerald's Game). The key cast is joined...

Review: IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK, The Cost of Love

Perhaps it is true what is said, that the world looks different when you’re in love. Colours are fuller and brighter; even a dingy basement apartment can seem like a palace; and you have all the hope that, no matter...

Review: MORTAL ENGINES, Crawling Through the Wreckage

Lumbering rather than rolling, Mortal Engines allows plenty of time to become distracted by bountiful, finely-detailed, sprawling scenery as it crawls through the wreckage of Earth, thousands of years after the planet was torn apart by war. There's not much...

Comics Legend Alan Moore Working on THE SHOW, His Own Radical and Progressive Film

Expect a twilight world of dead Lotharios, comatose sleeping beauties, Voodoo gangsters, masked adventurers, unlikely 1930s private eyes and violent chiaroscuro women in the comics titan's venture into cinema.

Blu-ray Review: SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT 2 Celebrates Garbage Day

Lee Harvey's 1987 feature debut was the first sequel to the Santa slasher Silent Night, Deadly Night. For those of you reading this that haven't seen the 1984 film, I'll give a quick primer. The original takes up a good part...

Nicolas Cage Calls Sion Sono's PRISONERS OF THE GHOSTLAND "The Wildest Movie I've Ever Made"

We love Nicolas Cage for the unabashed intensity with which he seems to approach any role he is offered, and in recent years, boy have there been a lot of them. The actor was in Macau this past weekend at...

Review: ONCE UPON A DEADPOOL, Nothing New Under The Sun, But Still A Pinch Of Naughty-ish Fun

Today marks the cinema release of David Leitch's Once Upon a Deadpool, a PG-13 re-edit of the very R-rated Deadpool 2 from this past May. While it seems like an odd choice, there are actually a few compelling reasons to put this back...

Shivers 2018 Review: BIRDS OF PASSAGE

An odd piece of news last week was that Colombia is now one of the fastest-growing countries, popularity-wise, for Europeans to take a holiday to. The reason: series like Narcos show how beautiful that land is, and with the civil...

Short Film WE SUMMONED A DEMON: Be Careful What You Wish For

Filmmaker Chris McInroy is no stranger to these pages or to much of our readership: his short films such as Bad Guy Number 2 and Death Metal have screened at festivals around the world (Fantasia, FrightFest, Fantastic Fest, Boston Underground...

Review: AQUAMAN, Throwing Caution to the Sea, and Back Again

Get ready to get wet, for good reason.

Review: SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE, Once More With Feeling!

As a moviegoer who has grown weary of the unending barrage of superhero offerings clogging multiplexes these days, I was not particularly looking forward to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Not only is it another addition to the dozens of comic...

Trailer: The Earth Trembles, The Titans Rise In GODZILLA: KING OF THE MONSTERS

It sure looks like director Michael Dougherty isn't messing around with the new trailer for Godzilla: King of the Monsters, the long awaited follow-up to 2014's American series reboot. Due in theaters this coming summer, Godzilla: King of the Monsters...
