There's little doubt when you see the name Álex de la Iglesia, that you're in for something unusual so it's no surprise that Shrew's Nest, which is presented by de la Iglesia, looks like a twisted bit of horror. [Continue reading]

Marina Antunes [Celluloid 07.29.14] Finland drama

J.-P. Valkeapää's "contemporary road movie" They Have Escaped looks a little more complicated than the average road movie. This is no trip of self discovery but rather a trip of escaping reality. [Continue reading]

Marina Antunes [Celluloid 07.28.14] Canada horror

The concept of finding something in the snow that you shouldn't mess around with isn't a new one. The concept has been at the center of any number of horror movies, most famously The Thing, but that's not to say there isn't mileage left on the idea. At least that's what writer/director Nick Szostakiwskyj is hoping for. [Continue reading]

Marina Antunes [Celluloid 07.28.14] Canada horror comedy

A couple of weeks ago we had a chance to peek a first look at Matt O'Mahoney's horror comedy Bloody Knuckles which tells the story of an underground comic book artist whose latest comic offends a Chinatown crime boss who decides to strike back by cutting off the artist's hand only to have the severed limb retaliate. [Continue reading]

Marina Antunes [Celluloid 07.28.14] post apocalyptic scifi thriller

Earlier this year, a Vancouver location was turned into a top secret set. Security was so tight that at any given time there were a handful of personnel guarding the stars and producers. You'd think Tom Cruise was on set but instead, it was Norman Reedus and Djimon Hounsou. The movie they were shooting? Air. [Continue reading (1 comment)]

Marina Antunes [Celluloid 07.28.14] horror thriller fantasy

It's been a few weeks since the release of the first trailer for Horns and while that trailer suggested good things, it had nothing on the newly released trailer for the adaptation of Joe Hill's best selling novel. [Continue reading]

Marina Antunes [Celluloid 07.28.14] action thriller noir adventure

A new trailer has emerged for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, the much anticipated, and long gestating, follow up to Sin City.

Marina Antunes [Cathode Ray Mission 07.25.14] zombies drama

We all knew Terminus wasn't going to be a happy place and from this extended season five trailer, it certainly looks like Terminus is going to be more trouble than its worth. [Continue reading (10 comments)]

Marina Antunes [Bunker Blueprint 07.25.14] scifi

Director David Karlak is on the brink of being the next big deal. Think Neill Blomkamp pre-District 9. [Continue reading (2 comments)]

Michael Pitt jumps back into the movies after a successful TV run (most recently and notably as Mason Verger on NBC's "Hannibal") and stars here as Ian, a brilliant molecular biologist captivated by the eye. His research involves tracking the evolution of the eye in an effort to disprove the intelligent design debaters. [Continue reading]

Marina Antunes [Celluloid 07.24.14] Spain thriller

Antonio de la Torre (most recently seen in Pedro Almodóvar audacious I'm So Excited), makes a complete left turn here and provides a commanding performance as Carlos, a handsome, well respected and admired tailor who makes his living dressing some of the most important men of Granada. By day he's a solitary man but he spends a few hours a week with Aurora, an o... [Continue reading (1 comment)]

Marina Antunes [Celluloid 07.23.14] post apocalyptic

We've already seen two trailers for Jake Paltrow's upcoming PA drama Young Ones but with the movie's release quickly approaching, the studio has seen fit to cut a third, rather short but effective teaser for the movie. [Continue reading]

Marina Antunes [Celluloid 07.23.14] thriller crime

Jake Gyllenhaal is killing it. After an ill advised foray into summer action blockbuster territory (I rather enjoyed Prince of Persia but I'm in the minority there), Gyllenhaal has slowly reverted back to the smaller movies that brought him so much success earlier in his career. Last year he had the winning one-two punch of Prisoners and Enemy (review) and now he foll... [Continue reading (1 comment)]

Marina Antunes [DVD News 07.22.14]

It's a quiet week for home video releases but that's not to say that there aren't a handful of good things to look forward to though first and foremost, the title of interest this week is easily the blu-ray release of the female werewolf bundle of joy that is Ginger Snaps. [Continue reading (1 comment)]

Marina Antunes [Celluloid 07.22.14] scifi comedy

Actor turned director Jack Plotnick is best known for his TV work and his frequent appearances on "Reno 911" and for his directorial debut, he's taking his comedic talents into space. Or so he hopes. [Continue reading (1 comment)]

Marina Antunes [Celluloid 07.21.14]

If you were around these parts last week, you may have put your name into the hat for a couple of contest we were running. The first was a contest to win a blu-ray and autographed poster for Lucky McKee & Chris Sivertson’s All Cheerleaders Must Die (review), which is out on DVD and blu-ray tomorrow.

I really dug Daybreakers (review) and have been waiting patiently for the release of the Spierig Brothers' upcoming time travel re-team with Ethan Hawke. [Continue reading]

Marina Antunes [Celluloid 07.18.14] comedy drama

I know what you're thinking. Why is there a trailer for a romance on Quiet Earth? Just bear with me for a moment because if the trailer is accurate to the story, there's a whole lot more going on in The One I Love than just a couple who are ready to call their relationship over and decide to give it one last go with a weekend re-treat. [Continue reading (1 comment)]

Marina Antunes [Celluloid 07.18.14] horror

Reading the headline from the news release for Cybernatural, the first thing that came to mind was how on earth I'd missed a new movie from Timur Bekmambetov. Turns out he isn't directing this bit of horror, only presenting. But I figure I'll give him the benefit and give this a go. [Continue reading]

Marina Antunes [Celluloid 07.18.14] documentary

Narrated by Sean Astin and featuring interviews with industry innovators and heavyweights, Video Games: The Movie was in a prime spot to provide the quintessential documentary on gaming and truth is, you can't knock it for trying. Snead brings together not only an impressive list of industry luminaries but he asks many of the right questions. The problem is that the m... [Continue reading (1 comment)]

Marina Antunes [Celluloid 07.17.14] thriller

The nuclear apocalypse has long been a fascination and many a movie have dealt with the lead up or the aftermath of the event. In the case of Hungarian director Peter Engert's movie, Aftermath deals with the events immediately after a number of bombs go off in the US. We follow a group of individuals who are thrown together by chance as they try to survive the first m... [Continue reading (1 comment)]

agentorange [DVD News 07.17.14] scifi horror action thriller

If you watch one film this week, watch Snowpiercer on VOD. If you watch two films, make sure the second is Johnothan Glazer's Under The Skin, a hypnotic, Kubrickian scifi ball buster that sees Scarlett Johansson at her most man-eaterish. Expect stillness and beauty and horror all at once. Expect something profound. This is cinema, people! [Continue reading (2 comments)]

Later this month director Sarah Adina Smith is going to be making her feature film debut at Fantasia Film Festival with The Midnight Swim. [Continue reading]

Marina Antunes [Cathode Ray Mission 07.16.14] scifi thriller drama adventure

I never considered the idea to adapt Terry Gilliam's 12 Monkeys could end well and thought the first full trailer for the SyFy produced series doesn't look terrible, it's not exactly making me jump with glee. It all feels a little too similar to the movie but not quite on the same level… [Continue reading (1 comment)]

Marina Antunes [Contests 07.15.14] horror

We haven't touched based with Paul Hough's horror movie The Human Race since posting a trailer last year but in the months since, the movie has been making the rounds of the genre film festivals and will be released on DVD next week and we've got a little contest to celebrate.

Marina Antunes [Celluloid 07.15.14] scifi drama mystery

Way back when, we were really impressed with The Signal (review), a little movie that encompassed everything from survivalist thriller to all out horror. It was a great concept directed by three talented young directors including Dan Bush. [Continue reading (1 comment)]
