If you're afraid of children, don't watch this trailer

20 May 2015 6:21 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In the scheme of "killer kid" movies, "The Bad Seed" was first, "Alice Sweet Alice" is an underappreciated gem and "Children of the Corn" is not nearly as good as you remember it being. Also: have you seen 2008's "The Children"? If not, seek it out immediately. The latest entry in the storied sub-genre is "Cooties," a new film from Elijah Wood's SpectreVision shingle that sees a group of elementary school teachers struggling to survive against a horde of zombified students. Wood (a dedicated horror nut who also successfully fended off a murderous 12-year-old Macaulay Culkin in 1993's "The Good Son") stars alongside Alison Pill, Rainn Wilson, Jack McBrayer and Jorge Garcia. The script comes from  Leigh Whannell ("Saw," "Insidious") and Ian Brennan ("Glee"); it was directed by Cary Murnion and Jonathan Milott (making their feature-film debut). Will "Cooties" be the next indie horror success story? Guess we'll see. »

Oscar-Nominated Film Series: Early Morphine Addiction Drama Marred by Several Hammy Performances

11 May 2015 2:22 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'A Hatful of Rain' with Lloyd Nolan, Anthony Franciosa and Don Murray 'A Hatful of Rain' script fails to find cinematic voice as most of the cast hams it up Based on a play by Michael V. Gazzo, A Hatful of Rain is an interesting attempt at injecting "adult" subject matters – in this case, the evils of drug addiction – into Hollywood movies. "Interesting," however, does not mean either successful or compelling. Despite real, unromantic New York City locations and Joseph MacDonald's beautifully realistic black-and-white camera work (and the pointless use of CinemaScope), this Fred Zinnemann-directed melodrama feels anachronistically stagy as a result of its artificial dialogue and the hammy theatricality of its performers – with Eva Marie Saint as the sole naturalistic exception. 'A Hatful of Rain' synopsis Somewhat revolutionary in its day (Otto Preminger's The Man with a Golden Arm,* also about drug addiction, »

Mommy (2014) – The Review

29 January 2015 2:52 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Over the years film goers have been treated to movies touting the joys of parenthood such as Penny Serenade, Yours, Mine, And Ours, and, for most of its story, Parenthood. But what about the opposite end of the spectrum, when raising your sibling becomes more than a bit difficult. More harrowing than the comedy slapstick of the Problem Child series, but not the melodramatic themes of The Bad Seed or The Good Son. In his newest film French-Canadian actor/director/writer Xavier Dolan mixes in a touch of futuristic “what if” to shine a spotlight on the struggles of many fractured modern-day families. It’s the tale of the tug-of-war between a violent, troubled teenager and his overwhelmed widowed Mommy.

A brief prologue printed in white letters on a black screen tells us that we’re now a couple of years in the future after a 2015 change in Canada’s »
