One careless misstep gets them in deep with the wrong people and they have to use their exceptional skills to dig their way back out.

rochefort [Celluloid 09.28.16] fantasy adventure

Burton's filmography has its share of lows, highs, and incredibly highs, and whenever he puts out a new movie, I imagine some of the fans who grew up with his early work just don't get as excited as they used to. I've made my peace with his body of work, less concerned with whether or not he'll ever make another Edward Scissorhands or Ed Wood and more with the fact th... [Continue reading]

Simon Read [Celluloid 09.28.16] Iran horror

Working on several levels and featuring excellent performances, it’s a striking, genuinely chilling piece of work, and a very easy film to recommend. While the backdrop is one of chaos, war and conflict, the underlying motifs are of guilt, anxiety and frustration, all manifest in the appearance of something more insidious than any invading army or dictator, some...

rochefort [Celluloid 09.25.16] post apocalyptic zombies scifi horror action thriller

Pretty much every year at Fantastic Fest comes a film that prompts me to point out that the zombie movie is far from dead. From “Rammbock” to “Wyrmwood”, there’s no denying that the oft-predicted end of the zombie film is still nowhere in sight, and this year’s example is “The Girl with All the Gifts”, an adaptation of M...

Carlos Prime [Celluloid 09.25.16]

Put simply, this is the kind of movie people come to Fantastic Fest to see. The biggest laughs you’ll have while watching The Greasy Strangler may not necessarily come from the jokes themselves, but from the fact that the filmmakers behind it didn’t hesitate for a second to translate their perverse insanity to the big screen. [Continue reading]

Carlos Prime [Celluloid 09.25.16] horror comedy

Most ghost stories in the West consist of bedsheet-covered, lamenting souls looking to finally finish their unfinished business. Which makes me glad when we see a Thai film involving the supernatural. Not just because we get to see floating heads attached to internal organs, complete with glowing rectums. But also because those floating heads have an affinity for biti... [Continue reading]



rochefort [Celluloid 09.24.16] post apocalyptic animation

But I do, dammit, because there was a time when us science fiction fans (at least in the West) were lucky to get one animated film or TV show a year, making the likes of “Heavy Metal, “Fantastic Planet, “Rock & Rule, “Akira, and “Thundarr the Barbarian feel all the more precious.  If you can relate to this on any level, then you...

Christopher Webster [Celluloid 09.20.16] apocalyptic scifi cult thriller dystopic

While there's no question that Dead End Drive-In is designed to exploit the popularity of Mad Max, as well as capitalize on New Wave youth panic, it takes a sharp turn in the last act, embracing political satire that takes aim at political isolationism in the face of hard economic times. The saddest par of it is, it hit home how little the climate has changed since th... [Continue reading]

When watching a screener for review on a laptop on my own, I always consider it a small miracle if I can sit through the whole thing without stopping for a while and doing some laundry or making a sandwich. In this case, I watched the entire 95 minutes of The Good Neighborwithout pausing once, and this is testament to the filmmaker's skill in generating real tension... [Continue reading (1 comment)]

Marina Antunes [Celluloid 09.14.16] Canada thriller

I love a good country thriller and it's been some time since I’ve seen a really great one (though as I understand it there's been at least one this year) but the first clip from Nathan Morlando's Mean Dreams definitely suggested some good things to come from the film and from the looks of this newly minted trailer, we're in for a great ride.

Manuel de Layet [Celluloid 09.09.16] thriller


The movie in itself being truly mesmerizing, however funny the outcome of giving into that initial impulse, we'll rather go down the Structuralist road: separating the work from its author in order to break free from "interpretive tyranny." Prejudice more than anything in this particular occurrence I'll have to admit, anyway, this approach is more dignified. The who... [Continue reading (2 comments)]

If you thought Stranger Things was a breakout hit, just wait until the highly anticipated third season of Charlie Brooker's speculative Black Mirror premieres on Netflix next month. With larger budgets, bigger big star power, and an increasing interest in all things tech, I predict the show will take off in a big way. [Continue reading (1 comment)]
