Friday One Sheet: A SIMPLE (Thai) FAVOR (Again)

A number of weeks ago, we slathered on the love for the pastel geometric key art designs for Paul Feig's mystery thriller, A Simple Favour. As the film gets an international push, there has been consistency in the marketing campaign,...

Have Your Say: When Does "Bending The Truth" Go Too Far?

Later this week will see the release of Corin Hardy's The Nun, a spin-off in the franchise of the The Conjuring films. It looks to be creepy fun with jumpscares, same as the previous films. What's interesting though is that...

Festival Diary: Arrow Video FrightFest Day 5 - CLIMAX, CRYSTAL EYES, THE DARK

Festival Diary: Arrow Video FrightFest Day 4 - THE MAN WHO KILLED HITLER AND THEN THE BIGFOOT, HAMMER HORROR: THE WARNER BROS YEARS, TERRIFIED

It was the penultimate day of FrightFest and the incessant rain did nothing to deter horror fans and genre aficionados from swarming back to Leicester Square for a fourth helping of cinematic excess. Sunday witnessed the English Premiere of John...

Festival Diary: Arrow Video FrightFest Day 3 - HERETIKS, WHAT KEEPS YOU ALIVE

Day 3 of Arrow Video FrightFest marked the halfway point, and positively groaned with gruesome delights. As the weekend arrived in earnest, so did the crowds, who were treated to world premieres of British nightclubbing/germ attack shocker Ravers, as well...

Festival Diary: Arrow Video FrightFest Day 2 - BRAID, BLUE SUNSHINE

The momentum was building fast heading into Day 2 of Arrow Video FrightFest, as horror icon Barbara Crampton swooped into town to introduce the European Premieres of Sonny Laguna and Tommy Wiklund’s Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich as well as...

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

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...

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...

Notes on Streaming: A VERY ENGLISH SCANDAL Simmers, G.L.O.W. Burns Bright

The most frequent complaint about Netflix is that their flood of new series all have too many episodes that are all too long. Here is my two-pronged solution: (1) try another streaming service; (2) watch shorter shows with fewer episodes....

70s Rewind: THE MECHANIC, Terse Buddy Assassins

I pity anyone who saw Jason Statham's The Mechanic without having first seen Charles Bronson's The Mechanic. Because you didn't even get half the story. And the story's not even the point! In my review of the 2011 version, I...

Have Your Say: Dinosaurs!

Last weekend J. A. Bayona's Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom fell to Earth, and while it was not exactly an extinction event, it did leave quite a deep impact. When I saw it, I liked the film a lot but wondered...

Have Your Say: The Incredible Brad Bird

Last weekend, Brad Bird's Incredibles 2 landed with a thudding 'WHOMP' which was heard across the world. Our Andrew Mack loved it and he was not the only one: with 180 million dollars domestic and a CinemaScore rating of A+,...
