Cabin in the Woods is one of my favourite films of the last few years (review) and many horror fans agree. Part of what makes Drew Goddard's film so special is how deeply it penetrates (gross, sorry) the history of horror and pay homage to some of our favorite films, tropes and monsters.

For a while we've been glancing some tidbits from Rafa Martínez's directorial debut Sweet Home. From the images and the fact that this is produced by Carlos Fernández who is best known for producing the [REC] franchise, one could assume what was in store with Sweet Home but the trailer clears up any misconceptions.

I haven't been kind on SyFy's upcoming "12 Monkeys" TV show. I fully admit part of the hesitancy is the fact that this looks like a long play on a pretty great movie but having recently seen the possibilities of how well a TV show based on a good movie can turn out (I'm speaking specifically of the terrific "Fargo"), I admit to having softened a little on the upcoming...

It was only a matter of time before writer Alex Garland made the leap to directing. With writing credits that include 28 Days Later, Sunshine and Dredd (review), we know what Garland is capable of in the story department (though his scripts often suffer from third actor problems) and from the looks of this trailer for his directorial debut Ex Machina, he’s got a...

While Asylum Films has made a name for itself ripping off big budget scifi and action movies and producing tons of schlock for SyFy, Arrowstorm Entertainment has survived with fantasy titles that have been mostly crowd funded. For some reason, I can't sit through Snakes on a Train but give me The Crown and the Dragon (trailer), the fist of Arrowstorm's movies I watche... [Continue reading (1 comment)]

We haven't talked much about the upcoming Terminator: Genisys for a number of reasons but mostly because between the terrible title and the fact that Arnold Schwarzenegger is returning, there hasn't been much to say. Now that we have a first look at some of the key players and a synopsis of sorts, it's worth reiterating that this new Terminator movie is looking about ... [Continue reading (7 comments)]

Full admission: I didn't make it through ABC's of Death. I hit a wall at "J," turned it off and never looked back. I vaguely remember a scene here and there but none of the shorts I managed to get through were memorable enough to stick with me. Actually, the entire experience was rather painful and I clearly remember wishing it to be over soon and realizing I wasn't e... [Continue reading]

I was both excited and a bit put off when I first heard about Ana Lily Amirpour's A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night. The idea of a movie described as an "Iranian Vampire Western" was awesome but the black and white clips floating around suggested that this might be a distant, artsy and largely uninteresting drama.

In the year since we first posted about the Canadian trans-media anthology project Darknet, a lot has happened though surprisingly, very little of it to do with the project itself.
