Friday One Sheet: RESIDUE

The key art for Merawi Gerima's Residue is capital "S," serious: Classic typesetting, centered title cards and credit block on what appears to be, expensive paper-stock. Looky there: noils! Also, the logo for the hip offshoot of the Venice Film...

Friday One Sheet: SAINT MAUD

With its ultra high-grain photography aesthetic, black background, and minimalism, aspects of the new key art for this tense little British horror-psychodrama resembles the paperback boom of the 1960s and 1970s, the surge of horror and supernatural themes that brought...

Friday One Sheet: MAKE UP

This striking, lo-fi, key art for Claire Oakley's debut feature, Make Up, does unlikely things with colour. Mixing red and green is a one-way ticket to evoking Christmas, but here, it is cosmic and ethereal, like the stargate sequence of...

The new action-adventure anime show is simulcasting on Funimation and Hulu.

Pretty Packaging: ROLLERBALL Gets An Ultimate Edition

With streaming being the major platform, DVD and Blu-ray home releases have become a declining market. There will always be collectors though, and distributors willing to cater to them. Countries like France and Germany still release many stunners these days,...

Friday One Sheet: SHE DIES TOMORROW

The genre sales and distribution companies, such as XYZ and here, Neon, have been favouring bold (and surreal) pink and blue in their posters as of late, and there is still much water (and glitter) in the well. Take, for...

Blu-ray Review: The Devastating COME AND SEE

Friday One Sheet: Fire and Matches in UNHINGED

The rather impossible to miss (again, I lament that these things will not hang in movie theatre or multiplex lobbies) pair of orange warning signs for Unhinged makes up for the rather unremarkable original poster. This contemporary, incel-inflected, MAGA take...

Friday One Sheet: DA 5 BLOODS
