On the surface, The Intestine is a weird little dramatic thriller starring Melanie J. Scheiner as Maya, a young woman barely eking out an existence in a big city. She works a crummy job, lives in a dumpy apartment with her drug addicted mother and is generally miserable. [Continue reading]

Marina Antunes [Celluloid 10.25.16] horror comedy

The thing with comedy is that, even more so than other genres, it's very particular and what works for some doesn't work for others and as much as I've enjoyed Mell's other work, this really isn't for me.

John Connor [Celluloid 10.17.16] scifi horror thriller

Long time QE readers will already know our love of scrappy, indie sci-fi runs deep, for better or worse. I've certainly taken my lumps from readers for championing films like Mutant Chronicles (which I maintain is wildly original and entertaining) in the past and while Kill Command easily slots into similar territory it takes less chances than some of more adventurous...

Simon Read [Celluloid 10.11.16] horror thriller

Writer/director A.D. Calvo's latest feature is a kind of psychological thriller with supernatural overtones, a film which deals in themes of guilt and isolation, showing us a character's slow decent into madness, and for the first 45 minutes it really works quite well - an atmospheric mood-piece containing some well-observed and subtle performances. Unfortunately, as ... [Continue reading]

Carlos Prime [Celluloid 10.06.16] Republic of Korea thriller history

The life of espionage depicted in film legacies like James Bond, Jason Bourne, Jack Bauer, and I’m sure countless other “J.B.”-initialized spies is deceitful at best. When given dose after dose of flamboyant and extravagant spy-thriller films, it’s nice to see something that’s heartbreakingly realistic when you pick apart the nitty-gritty...

rochefort [Celluloid 10.05.16] scifi

It’s definitely an heir to the cinematic legacy of “The Day the Earth Stood Still” and “Close Encounters of the Third Kind”, but also builds upon the themes of the best “first contact” movies, depicting the paradigm shift that comes with proof we’re not alone in the universe in a way we’ve never seen in cinema.

But for science fiction fans, this could turn out to be a genuinely big deal.

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]
