Drive-In Dust Offs: Burn, Witch, Burn

2 hours ago

Movies dealing with witchcraft are usually lumped in with the supernatural, so they’re sometimes unfairly shoved to the back of the horror line. However, I truly believe they should have their own category. With supernatural horror, forces are typically thrust upon a protagonist, revenge for misbegotten deeds perpetrated upon the deceased, or righting of wrongs from beyond the pale. Where witchcraft sets itself apart is in the approach – yes, it does deal with the unseen, unkempt and unwanted from beyond – but these forces are usually conjured by a human, for good or nefarious purposes. It’s definitely a case of “don’t call us, we’ll call you”, and you won’t find a finer example of filmic witchery than 1962’s Burn, Witch, Burn.

A British production (Independent Artists), Burn, Witch, Burn was picked up and distributed in North America by American International Pictures. In the U.K., it »

21 hours ago

Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) has no shortage of survival skills on AMC's The Walking Dead, and his ability to put a dent in the living dead threat is on full display in McFarlane Toys' newly revealed resin statue of the beloved character.

Created by Todd McFarlane himself, this new limited edition Daryl Dixon resin statue will go up for pre-order this July during San Diego Comic-Con. Priced at $295.00, the statue stands over ten inches tall and comes with a Todd McFarlane-signed certificate of authenticity.

Heather’s Favorite Doomed Romances from the 1980s

22 hours ago

I love a heartwarming, feel-good romance story just as much as the next person, but sometimes, it’s those doomed cinematic relationships that tend to stick with you the most. One of the more interesting ill-fated couples I recently encountered was Rob (Cian Barry) and Holly (Abigail Hardingham) from Nina Forever. The new couple must endure the looming presence of Rob’s ex-girlfriend, Nina (Fiona O’Shaughnessy), who died recently in a car accident and happens to show up anytime they become intimate.

The pitch-black comedy touches on a lot of the complications that come with modern relationships and all the proverbial baggage we endure as a result of our previous romantic entanglements. It really struck me throughout the story just how well directors Ben and Chris Blaine perfectly explore those themes in Nina Forever, making me realize that some of my very favorite movie love affairs, particularly from the 1980s, »

Review: Deadpool

12 February 2016 1:38 PM, PST

He wears a mask, but he’s not Batman. He wears a red suit, but he’s not Spider-Man. He has regenerative powers, but he’s not Wolverine. He is Deadpool. You know that guy that we’ve all encountered at some point in our lives, the guy that says whatever he wants, is charming yet a jerk at the same time, can make the entire room laugh without so much as a hint of effort—that’s Deadpool.

The comic book world knows Deadpool best as “the Merc with a Mouth.” Actor Ryan Reynolds has been lobbying for a standalone Deadpool movie for some time, but it wasn’t until the Internet caught glimpse of some leaked test footage that the clamor began. First-time director Tim Miller helms Deadpool and impressively crafts a film that is a mix of near perfect comic self-awareness, gruesome violence, and vulgarity that matches »

Watch the Official Trailer for Karyn Kusama’s The Invitation

11 February 2016 10:05 AM, PST

Drafthouse Films invites viewers to a potentially devious dinner party in the first full-length trailer for Karyn Kusama's The Invitation.

"In this taut psychological thriller by Karyn Kusama (Girlfight, Jennifer's Body), the tension is palpable when Will (Logan Marshall-Green, Prometheus) shows up to his ex-wife Eden (Tammy Blanchard, Into the Woods) and new husband, David's (Michiel Huisman, "Game of Thrones") dinner party. The pair's tragic past haunts an equally spooky present: Amid Eden's suspicious behavior and her mysterious house guests, Will becomes convinced that his invitation was extended with a hidden agenda. Unfolding over one dark evening in the Hollywood Hills, The Invitation blurs layers of mounting paranoia, mystery, and horror until both Will-and the audience-are unsure what threats are real or imagined."

Directed by Karyn Kusama from a screenplay by Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi, The Invitation stars Logan Marshall-Green, Tammy Blanchard, Michiel Huisman, Emayatzy Corinealdi, and John Carroll Lynch. »
