Friday One Sheet: Gaspar Noe's CLIMAX

One thing you are guaranteed with a Gaspar Noe film is a good poster. Whether or not you like his aggressively immersive and highly sexualized cinema, the key art is always distinct, original, and magnificent. Today we have the first...

Have Your Say: Which Director Would You Like To Get 200,000,000 USD To Play With?

Now that I've been writing for Screen Anarchy for more than ten years, I sometimes revisit stuff I did a decade ago. Sometimes just for fun, sometimes to see what topics concerned us back then, in the "oughts". And in...

CineMage - Episode Two: (In)glorious Americana

SA Editor Benjamin Umstead's new column studies the intersections between film culture, social systems, mental health and the nature of self-awareness and actualization through a humorous lens.

Friday One Sheet: SLICE And Brand Humor

The minimal teaser posters for A24's 'pizza delivery boy slasher film,' Slice, get right to the meat and cheese of the matter. B O N D, one of my favourite key art design houses who did the tropical Star Wars:...

70s Rewind: In ELECTRA GLIDE IN BLUE, Robert Blake Commands the Screen

Every generation gets the Robert Blake it deserves. In 1939, young Mickey Gubitosi began appearing in the Our Gang series of short comic films. He took on the stage name Bobby Blake for other films through most of the 1950s,...

Have Your Say: What's Your Favorite Shark Movie (Not JAWS)?

This week sees Jon Turteltaub's The Meg chomp its way into cinemas worldwide, and if the trailers do not lie it might give us a fun ride. At the very least it looks decently made, which is not what you...

Fantasia 2018: It's a Wrap on Montreal's Wonderful Summer Camp for Genre Fans

The 22nd Fantasia International Film Festival has come to a close. Hats off to anyone with the stamina to make it from the early July beginning to curtain closes in August. We know a few folks who do the three...

Friday One Sheet: Possible New Poster Cliche - The Image Vortex

Three data points do not make a trend, and therefore I may be wrong on this. However, after perusing the series of potential posters for Terry Gilliam's The Man Who Killed Do Quixote, one of them stood out immediately as...

Notes on Streaming: BLAME! and GODZILLA: CITY ON THE EDGE OF BATTLE Each Blaze Their Own Desperate Trail

In my last column, I offered up my two-pronged solution to the frequent complaint about Netflix that their flood of new series all have too many episodes that are all too long, suggesting that viewers either try another streaming service...

Have Your Say: Tips For The Next Generation

I have two sons, one who is fourteen years old and one who has just turned ten. Watching films with the younger son is a lot of fun, but the older one is getting more and more curious about good...

Friday One Sheet: THE SPY WHO DUMPED ME and the Vintage Travel Poster

Perhaps another Hollywood parody of the Super Spy genre is not the cup of tea of the regular Screen Anarchy readership. In this column, however, we look at the styling and quality of the key art, not necessarily of the...

Frontières@Fantasia 2018: Five Standouts From Official Selection Pitch Session

Frontières is the premier name in international co-production project markets for genre films around the world. With events in Cannes, Amsterdam, and the flagship operation at Montreal's Fantasia, Frontières has become the place to be to pitch new projects in...

Have Your Say: When You Think It Was Inspired By...

We've all encountered it: the sense of deja-vu when you see a film and one scene suddenly looks VERY familiar for some reason. And you think: that scene, or idea, or design bowled me over, but in another (favorite) film...

Friday One Sheet: CAM And A Meltdown In Pink

This eye-catching pink hybrid of eroding paint and digital pixelation, exudes 'disturbed.' It feels like a modern take on the rich history of Polish poster designs. It is a surprising bit of key art to be released from Blumhouse pictures,...

Japan Cuts 2018 Sneak Peek: New Work from Naomi Kawase Leads an Eclectic Slate

Summer in New York City means Japan Society presenting another round of delish contemporary Japanese films, ranging from the weird and macabre, to the sincere and bubblegum apeshit insane! It's all happening, starting today, July 19, and roaring until July...

Have Your Say: What's Your Favorite Film Poster Ever?

That film poster for The Endless is probably my favorite one in years. It actually makes me wonder: what is the best or most beautiful movie poster of all time? So let's make that the topic of the week! What's...

70s Rewind: MR. MAJESTYK, Melons, Migrants and Murder

Based on an original script by Elmore Leonard, Richard Fleischer's Mr. Majestyk is the best melon-picking movie I've ever seen. Charles Bronson stars as the titular character, a taciturn yet friendly man who is entirely focused on getting the watermelon...

Friday One Sheet: Design and Posture in A SIMPLE FAVOR

This strikingly handsome design for Paul Feig's latest film, A Simple Favor, feels as much like a teaser as the mainline poster, offering little but a look at its stars in perfect posture, a cocktail, and a staircase in the middle...

Fantasia 2018 Curtain Raiser: Your Guide To Navigating Montreal's Gargantuan Genre Festival

The Fantasia International Film Festival begins its 22nd edition in Canada's La Belle Province today for a three-week smorgasbord of action, horror, weirdness and, tucked away between the splatter and science fiction, you will find a drama or two. As...

Pretty Packaging: The Commemorary Boxset Of THE DAM BUSTERS Hits The Mark

In May 1943, a squadron of British Lancaster bombers (carrying specially designed bouncing mines) managed to breach several dams in Germany, damaging the industrial war-power of Hitler's "Third Reich" and providing a huge boost in morale for the Allied forces....
