A DISCOVERY OF WITCHES To Hit the Small Screen with Matthew Goode & Teresa Palmer

New BERLIN SYNDROME Trailer: Skin, Get Ready to Crawl

Watching the new trailer for Berlin Syndrome made me feel distinctly uncomfortable. Teresa Palmer stars as an Australian photojournalist who falls for an apparently charming man (Max Riemelt) while on vacation in Europe. After a night of (presumed) romance, she...

Berlinale 2017 Review: BERLIN SYNDROME, Cate Shortland's Skin-Crawling Thriller

From Jutin Kurzel's Snowtown in 2011 to Ben Young's recent Hounds of Love at last year's Venice Biennale, Australia has developed a real knack for messed up cinema, and Cate Shortland's recent Screen Australia and Film Victoria supported skin-crawler is...

Review: HACKSAW RIDGE, A Pacifist in Mel Gibson's War

The true-life story of Desmond T. Doss comes vividly to life in Hacksaw Ridge, a biographical picture directed by Mel Gibson that features a soulful performance by Andrew Garfield. Solid and stirring -- and very respectful -- the movie begins...

Toronto 2016 Review: MESSAGE FROM THE KING Mixes Old School And Global Contemporary Masculinity Into Neo-Noir

Arriving fresh into LAX with only the clothes on his back, some cash in his pocket and a South African passport, Jacob King is given the full interrogation by the customs officials, "Are you working? Are you staying with family?...

Review: LIGHTS OUT, When Darkness Rules

Modesty is an underappreciated virtue, especially in horror movies. Lights Out revolves around a frightening idea: turn out the lights and something sinister appears. Turn on the lights and the something disappears. A few years ago, filmmaker David F. Sandberg...

Review: THE CHOICE, Why Some People Remain Single

I am a single person who has never read a novel by Nicholas Sparks. Nor, until now, had I ever seen any of the movies based on his books. What kind of monster am I? Sparks is the Stephen King...

LA Film Fest 2014 Review: CUT BANK Balances Expertly On A Razor's Edge Between Thrills And Laughs

It's no easy task to write a crime thriller script that is both tense and comedic. But even when a writer is able to pull it off on the page, an even more difficult task awaits a director to...

Crime, Thrills, Australia: Meet Simon Pegg And KILL ME THREE TIMES

Simon Pegg looks quite the dapper assassin in the first official photo from Australian thriller Kill Me Three Times. The film is finishing up production under the direction of Kriv Stenders. Pegg stars alongside Alice Braga, Teresa Palmer, Sullivan Stapleton,...

Now on Blu-ray: WARM BODIES Is A Clever Teenage Romance For The Horror Crowd

A teenage romance with monsters? Hasn't Twilight already done this and proven, unequivocally, that it's a terrible, terrible idea? Well, yes and no. Warm Bodies swaps the vampires and werewolves for zombies, and the ridiculous melodrama for genuine warmth and...

Simon Pegg Joins Aussie Thriller KILL ME THREE TIMES

Looks like casting famous Brits in big Aussie movies is the new black. Or rather it was the old black, but once again has become so pronounced as to be worth commenting on. In the past 12 months we've had...

Peek Behind The Scenes Of Nash Edgerton's BEAR

A couple weeks back we showed you Bear, Nash Edgerton's awesome short film sequel to his mega successful festival gem Spider (there's a third one to be made allegedly) and now we have the making-of video which reveals the tricks...

AnarchyVision: Talking WARM BODIES, STAND UP GUYS, BULLET TO THE HEAD & Football Fun

This week's Twitchvision chat was done from the home theatre where I've assembled a crack team of football watchers. Timed almost perfectly with a power outage at the NOLA Superdome, I was on air talking about the Walken/Pacino/Arkin buddy pic...

Review: WARM BODIES Underplays the Zombie Thing With a Charming Romance

A sweet yet innocuous romance steeped in both Shakespearean motifs and shoegazing tropes, the saving grace of Warm Bodies (AKA 'the emo zombie film') is that it's quite charming, never completely falling into a farcical take on the subject matter....

WARM BODIES: Nicholas Hoult and Teresa Palmer Talk Zombies, Respecting Rules, and Then Breaking Them

We've seen zombies walk, run, jump, and fight sharks, but we've never seen one fall in love with a human...that is, until now! Written and directed by Jonathan Levine (50/50, The Wackness, All the Boys Love Mandy Lane), Warm Bodies...

First Four Minutes Of WARM BODIES Are Charming, Clever Stuff

I admit it. I wrote of Jonathan Levine's Warm Bodies sight unseen as a weak attempt to somehow transform the zombie craze into fodder for the Twilight set, a move I easily convinced myself I had no interest in. And,...

James McTeigue To Deliver MESSAGE FROM THE KING

One of the more interesting comic book/graphic novel adaptations to be released in the last 10 years is James McTeigue's big-screen version of Alan Moore's V For Vendetta. The film proved McTeigue to be a talented director, mixing cool action...

Review: I AM NUMBER FOUR (Blu Ray)

The core problem with the sci-fi fantasy I Am Number Four can be pinpointed any of the (many) times director D.J. Caruso's camera catches sight of of teen alien John's (Alex Pettyfer) iPhone. Numerous times we see its screen as...

TAKE ME HOME TONIGHT review

Hey, like, remember the eighties? Welcome to the latest in the current wave of 1980s nostalgia films. This one, the pointlessly titled "Take Me Home Tonight" (the Eddie Money song of the same name is never heard, despite a wall-to-wall...
