just now

  We were a little disappointed when we found out that Javier Bardem dropped out of J. C. Chandor’s A Most Violent Year—set during the winter of 1981, one of the most violent years on record in New York City. Bardem knows a thing or two about that kind of brutality (hello, No Country for Old Men). But after seeing the recently released trailer for the Margin Call director’s film, we’re feeling hopeful again. Inside Llewyn DavisOscar Isaac has since replaced Bardem, starring opposite Jessica Chastain in what looks to be a moody, caustic picture. According to IMDb, the film is “centered on a the lives of an immigrant and his family trying to expand their business and capitalize on opportunities as the rampant violence, decay and...

43 minutes ago

If anything, Daniel Radcliffe's post-Harry Potter career has been full of interesting choices. In Horns, he's the central figure in a murder-mystery horror-fantasy filled with Christian imagery (and based on a novel by Joe Hill).

Fantastic Fest: 'The Babadook' and 'It Follows' Make the Scariest Double Feature of 2014

21 September 2014 7:00 PM, PDT

Sometimes, being a horror fan means bringing a lot of qualifications into your love of the genre. You start saying things like "That was good... for a stupid, bloody slasher movie." You embrace pleasant surprises and sing the praises of films that even slightly tray outside of the rigid templates that have been in place for decades. Horror buffs know when to shrug off a mediocre film's bad qualities and embrace the handful of elements that work because there are so many tired, derivative and shallow scary movies.
