Marina Antunes [Film Festival 02.10.16] Canada thriller

For the past decade, Canadian auteur Denis Côté has been working largely under the radar, creating some of the most interesting arthouse cinema the country has to offer.

Marina Antunes [Celluloid 02.10.16] horror thriller

It's not surprising that The Purge has turned into a somewhat successful franchise. They're cheap to make and the basic concept, the idea that for one night all violence including murder is legal, is perfect fodder for a horror movie that is more than just violence, gore and jump scares not to mention the set-up allows for endless stories told over that one nigh.

Marina Antunes [Celluloid 02.09.16] Canada thriller

Canadian writer/director Jamie M. Dagg is no stranger to the Toronto International Film Festival. Both of his short films played the fest in previous years which was a great sign that the up-and-coming director was one to watch but one can never really tell if good shorts will equal good features. In the case of Dagg, that certainly seems to be the case. [Continue reading]

J.J. Abrams dropped a bombshell on the world a few weeks back when we learned the little bunker thriller his Bad Robot production company was making was, in fact, *maybe* a part of the Cloverfield universe. After a fantastic, mostly musically charged, first trailer we now have an intense new spot that was featured during teh super Bowl. [Continue reading]

Christopher Webster [Celluloid 02.08.16] scifi

Luke Gilford's short film, Connected, is by no means on the level of, say, Black Mirror, when it comes to speculating on the humanist ramifications of future of digital connectedness, but its interesting to get a film that where two female celebrities likes Pam Anders and Jane Fonda address issues associated with aging in a world obsessed with youth.

Okay, from what I can piece together, Christian Alvart and writer Christoph Darnstädt (Das Experiment) have brought a long running German detective show called "Tatort" to the big screen in a Bourne kind of way. The first trailer for the Pandorum director's latest German genre piece has emerged and, not surprisingly, it's pretty awesome. [Continue reading]

Watching the flick, it's hard to not wo... [Continue reading]

Christopher Webster [Celluloid 02.03.16] France scifi action thriller

Leave it to the French to bemoan the death of 35mm in the midst of a sci-fi thriller. In the case of Ickerman, an impressive looking debut from newcomers Raphaël Hernandez & Savitri Joly-Gonfard, the story concerns a high-school teacher on a mission to save his best friend from virtual world of the future.
