A familiar relational dynamic — the responsible square vs. the hopeless screw-up — gets an affecting workout in “Manson Family Vacation,” a tale of two bickersome brothers who find tentative reconciliation awaiting them at the end of a long, strange trip. With fewer bigscreen acting credits to his name than his own brother and frequent collaborator Mark, Jay Duplass makes a welcome co-lead here as an uptight family man dealing with the latest shenanigans cooked up by his visiting older sibling, a death-obsessed drifter played with equal assurance by Linas Phillips (“Bass Ackwards”). Their persuasive chemistry should generate modest attention for writer-director J. Davis’ slender but engaging seriocomedy, while providing an early test of Netflix’s potential in the feature-distribution arena.
Hard-working Los Angeles attorney Nick (Duplass) isn’t thrilled to learn that his older brother, Conrad (Phillips), is coming to town for a visit on typically short notice. After the obligatory »

During the 2015 SXSW Film Festival last week, writer/director J. Davis celebrated the premiere of his debut directorial effort, Manson Family Vacation, and to mark the occasion, Daily Dead had the chance to chat briefly with the up-and-coming filmmaker about the inspiration behind the story, collaborating with co-stars Jay Duplass and Linas Phillips as well as working with Saw alum (and proverbial genre favorite) Tobin Bell.
Fantastic job on the film, J; it was really enjoyable and I thought the ending was perfect. This was such an unusual approach to one of the most infamous people ever- had Charles Manson been someone you had been interested in for a while then?

While not a horror movie by any means, Manson Family Vacation piqued my interests during the 2015 SXSW Film Festival due to its subject matter (the notorious Charles Manson) and the fact that it co-starred Saw alum Tobin Bell. And while I had no real expectations going into the film, what I came away with was one of the more surprisingly ingenious and heartfelt examinations of Manson and his continuing influence I’ve ever seen as well as a story that does an incredible job of intelligently deconstructing the idea of what family really means.
For his directorial debut, writer/director J. Davis introduces us to a hapless loner by the name of Conrad (Linas Phillips) who travels to Los Angeles to visit his little brother, Nick (Jay Duplass), the sensible one of the pair. Adopted when he was just an infant, Conrad has always been a bit of a family outcast, »

SXSW 2015 Film Review
complete coverage of the SXSW Film Festival 2015
Director/Screenwriter: Patrick Brice
It’s hilarious. The boundaries of bromance, marriage, friendship and even penis comedy are pushed to a very funny limit with this film. It’s great to see Schilling doing great work outside of “Orange is the New Black.”
Final Score: 8/10
Reclusive small town locksmith, A.J. Manglehorn, who has never recovered from his losing his true love embarks on a new tenuous relationship with a local woman he meets at the bank. Cast: Al Pacino, Holly Hunter, Harmony Korine, Chris Messina. (U.S. Premiere)

With Sundance in the rear view mirror and Berlin just around the corner, another huge festival that’s now very much in mind is the 2015 South By Southwest Film Festival (SXSW 2015), to be held in Austin, Texas, this March. And this year, the lineup looks no less eclectic than in any previous year for the festival.
SXSW 2015 will see the debut of two big-studio comedies (Paul Feig’s Spy, starring Melissa McCarthy; and Etan Cohen’s Get Hard, starring Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart), some red-hot documentaries (none more so than Alex Gibney’s Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine) and a vast array of smaller indie titles. Intriguingly, Judd Apatow’s Amy Schumer vehicle Trainwreck will be screened as a work-in-progress.

Stars: Luke Kleintank, Tobin Bell, Alex McKenna, Anthony Rey Perez, Zack Ward, Lacey Anzelc, Ethan S. Smith, Lesley-Anne Down, Charles Agron, Daniel Ross Owens, Max Gail, Patricia Belcher | Written by Victor Salva, Charles Agron | Directed by Victor Salva
As a fan of the Jeepers Creepers movies I’m always interested in what Victor Salva will come up with next, and this can be a good and bad thing. Dark House is his latest movie which he directs and co-wrote the screenplay for and I have to admit that it is an interesting film, if you are a fan of Supernatural or shows like it that focus on a fairly lightweight battle between good and evil. With Tobin Bell starring, Dark House is also is likely to pull in some of the Saw fans too.
Nick Di Santo (Luke Kleintank) is a man with a gift, he’s able to see »
