After watching the first teaser for “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” audiences were pretty pumped for the spin-off action film. Then the first trailer arrived and all hell broke loose (in a good way). But now, excitement for the film is on another level, all thanks to the Beastie Boys.
Video editor and YouTuber Matthew Longua made a killer new remix trailer for “Rogue One,” but instead of using composer Alexandre Desplat’s music, he swapped it out for the song “Sabotage” by Beastie Boys. The result is amazing!
The song cues in after Jyn Erso’s (Felicity Jones) line “I rebel,” and instantly kicks the video into high gear, making the footage look even more badass, all while elevating the action sequences.

Written and directed by Mitch Wilson
A group of bored college students unleash a murderous demon while playing a dice game made from human knucklebones.
Everyone remembers those halcyon days of walking through the video stores and renting the next horror movie on the shelf you’d not seen yet. You could spend hours looking through all the new releases, but the best option was to walk to the slasher section and pick out the VHS with the coolest cover and the most badass name possible. You may find a gem, it might be a bit rubbish, but you’re always going to have a good time. Knucklebones, the feature debut of Mitch Wilson, feels like one of those movies.
In true 80s slasher style, Wilson brings us a new face of fear for »

The Love Witch, 2016
Written and directed by Anna Biler
Starring Samantha Robinson, Elle Evans, Jeffrey Vincent Praise, Lily Holleman, Dani Lennon, Laura Waddell, Stephen Wozniak, Jennifer Ingrum, Gian KeysSamantha Robinson, Elle Evans, Jeffrey Vincent Praise, Lily Holleman, Dani Lennon, Laura Waddell, Stephen Wozniak, Jennifer Ingrum, Gian Keys
A modern-day witch uses spells and magic to get men to fall in love with her, in a tribute to 1960s pulp novels and Technicolor melodramas.
Your appreciation of The Love Witch will all depend on how much you can get into Anna Biller’s style. Its story, character and script are one thing, but Biller’s vision is something else. In this love letter to 60s pulp novels and technicolour melodramas, The Love Witch genuinely feels like it has been kept in a time capsule fifty years ago only to be rediscovered here in 2016.
The movie’s style and presentation really are the selling points, »

Beyond the Gates, 2016
Directed by Jackson Stewart
Two estranged brothers reunite at their missing father’s video store to liquidate the property and sell off his assets. As they dig through the store, they find a Vcr board game dubbed ‘Beyond The Gates’ that holds a connection to their father’s disappearance and deadly consequences for anyone who plays it.
You all remember Nightmare right? The VHS board game with the creepy dude narrating? Alright how about Star Wars: The Interactive Board Game? Wayne’s World? Atmosfear? Well, okay then, imagine Jumanji mixed with Poltergiest with a splash of Ringu and you’ve got Jackson Stewart’s Beyond the Gates, a tribute to the nostalgic love of VHS culture with a surprisingly nice horror twist.
With their father taking off and leaving his video store in need of clearing out, »

While it’s unclear what led to the idea of creating a YouTube mashup of the new trailer for “Star Wars: Rogue One” with the theme from “Friends”, there’s no denying the end result if pretty funny — as well as undeniably bizarre.

Cruel Summer, 2016
Young Autism sufferer Danny enjoys the serenity and solitude of camping. That’s all about to change when enraged teens Nicholas, Calvin and Julia find him, each with their own agenda for wanting to see Danny suffer.
Inspired on tragically true events, Cruel Summer is the debut feature of Phillip Escott and Craig Newman, who together have a wealth of experience directing documentaries. That experience has been carried over into Cruel Summer, as the pair get startlingly real performances from their cast, and some harrowing visuals to match.

Back at FrightFest 2013, writer and director Michael Mort premiered his short stop-motion animation Chuck Steel: Raging Balls of Steel Justice, which was met with rapturous applause (you can watch it online here). The short, a tribute to action cop movies of the 1980s, was a pure delight with over the top violence, excellent parodies of genre cliches and some outstanding animation. Well, now Mort is back with Chuck Steel – and this time it’s balls are much bigger.
According to Mort, the feature length Chuck Steel: Night of the Trampires should hit cinemas next year and they are deep in production. However FrightFest co-founder and presenter Paul McAvoy thinks it may take them longer to complete – and its easy to see why. Mort explained prior to screening the trailer that they were shooting Chuck Steel: Night of the Trampires 24-frames a second rather than the tradition twelve for animation as it creates a smoother outcome. »

Directed by Carles Torrens
A psychological thriller about a man who bumps into an old flame and subsequently becomes obsessed with her, leading him to hold her captive underneath the animal shelter where he works. But what will the victim have in store for her assailant?
The pure genius of Carles Torrens’s Pet is that it constantly plays with audience expectations. Just when you think you’ve got Pet all worked out, Jeremy Slater’s script pulls out the rug, creating one of the best cinematic and storytelling experiences of 2016.
Dominic Monaghan is almost unrecognisable since his days on Lost and The Lord of The Rings as the very troubled and lonely Seth and he brings so much to the character. Its a performance that is comparable to Ryan Reynolds in The Voices, but Monaghan does »

The ReZort, 2015
Directed by Steve Barker
The ReZort, a post apocalyptic safari, offers paying guests the opportunity to kill zombies in the wake of an outbreak.
Jurassic World meets Dawn of the Dead in Steve Barker’s ingenious addition to the over-saturated zombie genre. In a world that exists after a zombie outbreak, a rich and powerful CEO rounds up all the remaining zombies (or zees) and places them on an island where tourists can pay to hunt them. As you would imagine, it all goes array when a saboteur enters the island and causes the zombies to break loose and wreak havoc on the visitors.
The ReZort (formally titled Generation Z) is a breath of fresh air, and one that doesn’t come around often enough. With each passing year »

Movies never end up as they were originally envisioned. For various reasons, directors often decide not to film a section of the shooting-script. Also, throughout the production and post-production process of filmmaking, the cutting-room floor becomes cluttered with scenes, plots or characters that were chosen for deletion. Sometimes, these deleted scenes or subplots would have changed the entire film. Here are 9 movies with abandoned storylines would have altered the way we look at the overall movie.
The Cloverfield Monster was a young child: We never find out very much about the rampaging monster that attacks New York in Cloverfield. Where did it come from and why did it attack the city? Jj Abrams has said that, in the original conception of the story, the creature was a child belonging to an ancient Lovecraftian race that lies sleeping in the depth of the ocean. A young child from this race is awoken by a crashing satellite. »

Oh Jar Jar Binks, for a character who was almost immediately vilified by fans following the release of The Phantom Menace, we sure do seem to go out of our way to keep him relevant.

Spider-Man fans were left in a tizzy earlier this year when news broke that actor-turned-rapper Donald Glover had landed a role in Marvel’s 2017 reboot – is he playing Miles Morales? Or someone else entirely? – so imagine our excitement when we learned that the Homecoming star was also purportedly linked with Disney’s Star Wars Anthology series.
Rumors, of course, but those reports indicated that the House of Mouse was eyeing the Community actor for the role of a young Lando Calrissian opposite Alden Ehrenreich in the upcoming Han Solo spinoff, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller’s origin story poised to shine a light on the beloved smuggler.

Without an official statement from Disney to report, speculation only continues to pervade the four corners of the Internet, leading to Donald Glover himself weighing in on the rumors while chatting with Time (via Polygon). Dancing around a straight answer, »
