Marina Antunes [Celluloid 03.22.17] Poland musical horror comedy drama


The very concept of director Agnieszka Smoczynska's feature film debut The Lure is this perfect mesh of material specifically designed for someone who, like me, loves a good fairy tale, a dash of horror and cheesy 80s dance music. [Continue reading]

John Connor [Celluloid 03.20.17] post apocalyptic horror action fantasy western adventure

There's a part of me that still can't believe this movie is actually happening. Do we really live in a time when Stephen King's massive Dark Tower series could become its own cinematic universe? For me, this is would be the ultimate antidote to comic book universes which have dominated for the last decade. [Continue reading (3 comments)]

For a few years now writer/director Benjamin Ross Hayden has been dabbling in an interesting subgenre of filmmaking which mixes mysticism, fantasy, technology and the apocalyptic.

Though I'm generally not a fan of the concept of remakes, I understand the business of Hollywood loves the concept of a built-in audience and moreover, once in a while remakes, reboots and other rehashes of familiar properties turn out OK but something about the news that Warner Brothers is talking about going back to The Matrix just sits wrong with me.

If there was an award for confusing a potential audience, the trailer for Buster's Mal Heart would win all the prizes. But then, reading a couple of different synopsis of the movie, I'm not sure any trailer could do this movie justice. [Continue reading]

Marina Antunes [Celluloid 03.09.17] horror vampires

Perhaps one of the more interesting titles selected for last year's Cannes Festival was Michael O'Shea's indie film The Transfiguration.

Christopher Webster [Celluloid 03.07.17] Canada horror

I had the opportunity to see the The Void early (watch for a full review from Jason later this month) and I can attest to the film's strengths as a psychotropic, Lovecraftian horror film up there with From Beyond or Beyond the Black Rainbow. Canada's Jeremy Gillespie & Steven Kostanski (part of the Astron-6 team) continue to impress. [Continue reading (6 comments)]

I realize this has been floating around the web for a few days but as you may have noticed from the lack of posting this last week, it's been a busy couple of days in the QE virtual office.

Marina Antunes [Cathode Ray Mission 02.24.17] fantasy

I must admit that considering the release of "American Gods" is just around the corner, I'm just not that excited about the project. I'm having a hard time putting my finger on exactly why that is but I have a feeling it may have something to do with the fact that I'm still not really sure what the show is about beyond the plot that has a guy named Shadow taking the j...
