Written by Max Landis
Directed by Nima Nourizadeh
Take the amnesiac spy from the Bourne franchise, throw him into the anarchic nihilism of Kick-Ass, add some romantic idealism and then bubble it all through the comedic sensibilities of Pineapple Express and you have something that approximates American Ultra. As entertaining as it is flawed, director Nima Nourizadeh’s film is sure to divide audiences with its haphazard mix of ultra-violence and heartfelt romance. A gleefully-belligerent experiment in style that thumbs its nose at your expectations.
Can a pair of hopeless romantics survive in a modern world consumed by security, surveillance, and sarcasm? Not if one of them is a merciless killing machine for the CIA! Mike Howell (Jesse Eisenberg) is a well-meaning stoner who just wants to find the right moment to propose to his long-suffering girlfriend, Phoebe (Kristen Stewart). Those plans seem permanently derailed when a »

She holds the key to their survival and all will die who stand in their way.

Directed by David Cronenberg.
A cable TV channel owner wants to broadcast ‘Videodrome’, the most extreme programme on the network, but discovers that the show is front for a sinister global conspiracy.
Videodrome was the right film at the right time for director David Cronenberg (The Brood/Rabid). Cronenberg’s previous two movies – 1979’s The Brood and 1981’s Scanners – had seen the director rise above the grimy aesthetic of his early works and the quality of his productions get smoother but still retain his core themes of body horror, mutation and disease, and with the burgeoning home video market bringing all sorts of fears about moral corruption into the media headlines, Cronenberg was at the right place in his career to make a statement in his own unique way.

From the very earliest days of cinema, practical effects have been the big draw for audiences. The very first films may have wowed the crowds with images of trains pulling into a station, but it was the fantastical made real that fired the imaginations of millions, and led to film as we know it - narrative flights of fancy which have entertained and made us gasp for well over 100 years. But the last 25 years have seen practical effects fall by the wayside.
Digital effects created in a computer took over, and allowed filmmakers to dream even bigger. But practical effects are beginning to make a comeback. Some of this is due to audiences feeling the CG burnout; no longer quite believing what they’re seeing, resulting in »

It may only be July, but it can take a while to get in just the right mood for certain annual festivities. So, thank goodness for the early arrival of a trailer for Tales Of Halloween – an anthology horror movie featuring ten different segments, directed by eleven different directors.
“Ten stories are woven together by their shared theme of Halloween night in an American suburb, where ghouls, imps, aliens and axe murderers appear for one night only, to terrorise unsuspecting residents.”
In many respects, an advantage of a horror anthology is the fact that it allows for many filmmakers to showcase their work, giving the whole project a fascinating blend of flavours. However, what is notable about Tales Of Halloween, is that – despite – featuring the work of very individual directors, there is an overall tone that snakes through each one, making it feel very much like part of a larger whole. »

Showtime has renewed “Penny Dreadful” for a third season, which, after Sunday’s finale, provokes some mixed feelings. That’s not because the show isn’t great fun to watch, but rather because there was enough poetry in its final chapter that even with numerous loose ends, it frankly wouldn’t have been a bad place to end things. As it was, the season-long story line involving a Satan-worshipping coven paid off handsomely, before scattering members of the central cast in a manner that will require dexterity to reconstitute them. Fortunately, series creator John Logan appears up to the task.
As rich as the season was, it often didn’t seem to be going anywhere with any urgency, with Logan and his splendid cast luxuriating in the florid dialogue and Gothic atmosphere. So it came as something of relief to see the pace quicken and tension rise in the final two episodes, »

Warner Bros.’ Archive Collection has been doing quite the job giving genre and non-genre fans an extensive amount of DVD and Bluray releases of classic horror, crime noir and comedy films, some of which are available for the first time. Sure there are Quite a lot of new genre films to keep us busy for ages, but it does feel good to sit back and watch classic films that not only inspired today’s film-making, but paved the way for a lot of recent films.
We thought it would be nice to write a bit about some of our favorite releases from WB’s Archive Collection, thanks to the gang over there for sending a few titles my way to check out. Read on!

This week, Scream Factory is celebrating Neil Marshall’s stunning debut feature, Dog Soldiers, with a special Collector’s Edition Blu-ray and DVD combo pack that is nothing short of an amazing feat in itself. And while there has been some controversy surrounding the quality of the transfer (more on that later), what I will say is that regardless, Sf has done an excellent job with their overall presentation of the disc and it’s nice to see the spotlight finally on Dog Soldiers, a film that has flown mostly under the radar here in the States since it was first released back on DVD in 2002.
Dog Soldiers starts off with a weekend military exercise that goes horribly awry, when a group of Scottish soldiers are sent off to a wooded area that also happens to be a haven for strange happenings, as a string of disappearances have occurred there over the years. »

We can't help but feel a warming wash of nostalgia when we think back over the golden age of '80s cinema and the classic comedy, horror and teen movies it gave us.
And the further we leave that increasingly distant decade behind, the more fondly we recall the school discos, questionable fashion choices and giant hairdos of the past.
Father's Day is on the horizon (on Sunday June 21 - don't forget!) - with a recent Netflix survey revealing that one of the things British dads most want to pass on to their children is a love for classic '80s cartoons including Danger Mouse. This got us thinking about the great nostalgic films and shows featured on Netflix.
In honour of all fathers out there, here's a look back at a time when our dads were young (or at least younger) with some '80s gems, all available to »
Some sad, albeit not so surprising (in hindsight) news surfaced a few weeks ago when makeup effects legend Rick Baker announced his retirement. The genius behind the stunning effects of films like An American Werewolf in London, Harry and the Hendersons, and Men in Black cited the changing business model as the primary reason for his decision to step back, saying studios wanted “cheap and fast” over quality work, which fueled his frustration. Losing Baker to the flood of CG-filled blockbusters is a depressing thought—his magic was a vital reason why the various films he contributed to worked so well. And the current moviegoing landscape is so saturated with CG effects that the wonder and awe of seeing something amazing yet totally believable onscreen is nearly gone. At this point, we’ve witnessed so many big cities destroyed so many different ways in the movies that it’s no »

Written & Directed by Ted Geoghegan
If your real estate agent ever describes a house as a “unique fixer-upper, unoccupied for 30 years,” for the love of God… don’t buy it! It’s a lesson that no one seems to learn in horror movies. Luckily, Ted Geoghegan’s directorial debut takes the haunted house thriller to new and exciting places while still honoring the genre conventions that we love. We Are Still Here is an unsettling affair that smolders a long time before finally bursting into flame. Easily one of 2015’s best horror films so far.
Anne (Barbara Crampton) and Paul Sacchetti (Andrew Sensenig) are an aging married couple on the run. Not from the law, but from their own grief. Two months ago, their son Bobby was killed in a tragic car accident. Anne is inconsolable and Paul is busy crawling into the bottom of a bottle. »

Bill Whitney’s just an ordinary American high school kid. Sure, he may live in a Beverly Hills mansion. He might drive a brand new Jeep to the beach. But deep down, he has the same hang-ups as most teenagers: he distrusts authority, resents his parents, and suspects that he might actually be adopted.
Gradually, however, we suspect that there might be something more to Billy’s paranoid fantasies than raging hormones - his parents really do seem to be up to something sinister - something to do with private parties, naked orgies, and shunting...
"We're just one big happy family... except for a little incest and psychosis"
