We first introduced the key art for the Civil War drama Echoes of War about a month ago but it was lacking a certain something. There was simply not enough Ethan Embry on it. But here we are now, with a new and improved version. Appreciate it now before someone realizes that Maika Monroe (The Guest and It Follows) whose star is on the rise is missing and the poster should have included her as well. Echoes of War, the feature debut from Australian filmmaker Kane Senes, will open in cinemas and on VOD on May 15, 2015. Keep an eye out for this key art so you American Civil War aficionados know what to keep an eye out for. In post-Civil War Texas, two neighboring families are...

It appears that Adrian Garcia Bogliano’s English language debut got a longer title for it’s DVD/Blu-ray Release, now known as Late Phases: Night of the Lone Wolf. An interesting and sometimes successful throwback to a fine tradition of genre cinema, Bogliano owes a great deal of this to Nick Damici, an actor featured prominently in the films of Jim Mickle. Considering the budget, several of the special effects sequences are quite impressive. Premiering at South By Southwest in 2014, a November theatrical release saw a mixed critical reception.
After the surprising critical success of his 2012 title Here Comes the Devil, the Spanish director makes his English language debut with a somewhat droll werewolf exercise paying heavy homage to several notable genre titles from the 1980s. Entertaining but never as funny or thrilling as this concoction sometimes promises, for those familiar with Bogliano’s earlier titles (this marks his eleventh feature, »

On to Werewolf Weekend movie #2, Dark Sky Films release Late Phases. I hadn't received a dud from this company, for review yet, and Phases keeps that going. Written by Eric Stolze, and Directed by Adrian Garcia Bogliano, Late Phases tells the story of an Army Vet, Ambrose, who has went blind with time, after being injured in Vietnam. He has become hardened to life, and in his own way, looks forward to death. His son puts him in a retirement community, thinking it's best for everyone involved, until Ambrose realizes there's something very dark hiding in the community.
I'm going to start with what I didn't like, this time. There were a couple sparse sound design issues. This is something that's hard to pin point where the problem originated at, because so much work goes into it. Suffice it to say that, »

Embry, 36, put a ring on Mabrey, 39, and the two stepped out together to show it off at the Make-Up Artists and Hair Stylists Guild Awards in Los Angeles.

"We both realized that the past two and a half years without each other was far more difficult than anything we experienced when we were together."

40. Empire Records
Directed by: Allan Moyle
Ah, the coming-of-age story. There was no sub-genre more hijacked for a quick buck in the 1990′s. In between the good ones (“Dazed and Confused,” “Boyz in the Hood”), the cheesy ones (“She’s All That,” “She Drives Me Crazy”), and the under-appreciated ones (“The Man in the Moon,” “Angus”), there were the middling ones that, if anything, boasted a cast that would go on to bigger, better things. Enter “Empire Records,” which is not only a coming-of-age story, but one that takes place at a record store, no less. Talk about the double dip. The entire film takes place over the course of one day, focusing on the employees, played by Anthony Lapaglia, Ethan Embry, Renee Zellweger, Rory Cochrane, and Liv Tyler. The independent record store is in Delaware – the hot spot of American music – and sees Joe (Lapaglia) allowing night manager Lucas »

Crescent Bay may seem like a quiet retirement community on the surface, but do a little digging and you’ll discover there’s more terror than tranquility to be found, for on evenings bathed in the light of the full moon, people have been dying, and not of natural causes.

Winter press tour just started, and already there's news, with Netflix announcing premiere dates for many of its new 2015 shows — including a much earlier debut than we expected for "Daredevil." In addition to ordering a second season of "Marco Polo," Netflix boss Ted Sarandos announced the following premiere dates (note: Netflix tends to debut its shows right after midnight Pacific on the dates in question): * "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt," which Netflix acquired from NBC late last year, will debut on Friday, March 6; created by Tina Fey and Robert Carlock, it stars Ellie Kemper from "The Office" as a woman who has just been rescued from a doomsday cult and tries to start her life over in New York City. It's funny. * "Bloodline," a drama from the "Damages" creative team about a Florida family — which includes Kyle Chandler, Ben Mendelsohn, Linda Cardellini, Norbert Leo Butz, Jacinda Barrett, Sissy Spacek and Sam Shepard — will debut on Friday, »

A new year of films may beckon, but there are lots of movies from 2014 you may have missed. Here's a list of 2014's most underappreciated...
There was no shortage of magnificent films in 2014 of every kind, from the expensive and explosive to the low-key and experimental. But it's a sad fact of life that not all movies do as well as they should, either because of poor distribution or simply because they'd been released at the same time as something much bigger and more star-laden.
While the list below is by no means an exhaustive one - there are plenty of great films from 2014 that we're still getting around to seeing - it's our attempt to highlight a few fine pieces of work that didn't get quite as much love as they deserved.
So without further ado - and in no particular order - we'll start with a stunning »
You’re Next was my favourite films of last year, so I was very excited to see director Adam Wingard’s latest, The Guest. We’re introduced to the Petersons, a small-town family who lost a son in the war in the Middle East. David (Dan Stevens, apparently best known for appearing in Downton Abbey), a former member of the deceased’s squad turns up unannounced one day to pay his respects, stays the night and finds himself ingratiated into the family’s life, sticking up for the bullied younger brother, providing dad with a drinking buddy, keeping an eye out for gothy older sister and generally being very nice to mum. As you might well expect however, David is not all that he »
