‘The Neon Demon’ trailer will give you vivid nightmares

A trailer is finally available for the newest project from acclaimed director Nicolas Winding Refn (Drive, Only God Forgives, Bronson). The Neon Demon is a twisted journey through the glamorous but also cutthroat (literally?) world of modeling in Los Angeles.

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘The Witch’ flies above all the hype

Film: The Witch Starring: Anya Taylor-Joy, Kate Dickie, Ralph Ineson Directed by: Robert Eggers If there’s anything we’ve learned from horror cinema, it’s that witches have the immense power to take an already awful day and make it exponentially shittier. Considering that last statement, The Witch’s witches are so hellbent on screwing with a 1630s […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Everest’ Offers More Heart Than Suspense

Film: Everest Starring: Jason Clarke, Sam Worthington, Kiera Knightley Directed by: Baltasar Kormákur Not since Vertical Limit has a film reached the heights of mountain climbing entertainment achieved by Baltasar Kormákur’s Everest. It’s far from the perfect thriller, but in a time where Hollywood is turning out forgettable films at an incredible rate it’s definitely […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘The Perfect Guy’ Lacks Suspense, Intrigue

Film: The Perfect Guy Starring: Michael Ealy, Sanaa Lathan Directed by: David M. Rosenthal There is more uncertainty in grocery shopping than in The Perfect Guy. You know what you want when you go to the store, and you generally know where to look, but there is always a small chance whatever you want will […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘No Escape’ Offers Surprisingly Few Thrills

Film: No Escape Starring: Owen Wilson, Lake Bell Directed By: John Erick Dowdle Films like No Escape may be the most frustrating of all forms of mediocre cinema, if only because you know it could be something great. Maybe it’s the script, or maybe it’s the cast, or maybe it’s a combination of both along […]

MOVIE REVIEW: Avoid The ‘Blood Moon’ At All Costs

Film: Blood Moon Starring: George Blagden, Tom Cotcher Directed By: Jeremy Wooding Poor direction and lackluster cinematography unravel any potential for fun or scares in Jeremy Wooding’s Blood Moon. Werewolves are tough. The idea of people who transform into beasts and back again seems like the kind of fodder that would provide material for dozens […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘The Guest’ Is A Fun, Throwback Thriller That You Need To See

Film: The Guest Starring: Dan Stevens, Maika Monroe Directed by: Adam Wingard The Guest. So modest a title for so boisterous a film. What sounds like it could be a locked room (or house) slasher from Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett (You’re Next, V/H/S) turns into a big, stylish thriller that throws back to classics both you and […]
