The terror of the Tall Man has stuck with viewers since his footsteps first echoed onscreen in 1979’s Phantasm, and last March it was revealed that Angus Scrimm’s legendary horror movie villain will stalk the screen one last time in Phantasm: Ravager. Fans were given their first look at the film back in March, and now new footage has been released in a holiday video message from Coscarelli and David Hartman.
Produced by Phantasm creator Don Coscarelli, who co-wrote the script with director David Hartman (marking the first time a Phantasm film has been directed by someone other than Coscarelli), Phantasm: Ravager is due out sometime in 2015. The film stars Reggie Bannister as ice cream man turned warrior Reggie and also includes original cast members Michael Baldwin, Bill Thornbury, Kat Lester and, of course, Angus Scrimm as the Tall Man.

Borag Thung, Earthlets!
We begin with an ending. The ending of Kingdom, to be precise – and the story of how Gene the Hackman found it. Beyond mindless action and a consistent (if irritating) dialect, there is little to enjoy in Dan Abnett’s tale of mutant dogs fighting a race of giant alien bugs. Beethoven meets Starship Troopers, this is not.
If you’re looking for mindless action, you’ll struggle to find a more literal example than in Pat Mills’ Greysuit – which opens on John Blake’s latest target, The Family Man (so-called because he murders a victim’s entire family when on assassination hits), bashing his own brains in against a wall. The disconnected eyeball flailing in each hit’s recoil is inspired. As is the army officer who suffers from singing Tourette’s (every other frame has him breaking into song), whom »

David Fincher’s most recent film, Gone Girl, has been the subject of intense criticism and analysis over the past few weeks. From claims of intense misogyny to stringent defenses on the other side, the film has evoked the most emotional critical response of any film in recent memory. However, my favourite part of the debate concerning Gone Girl has been the auteurist debate: which famous director is Fincher emulating in Gone Girl. Nick Pinkerton from Film Comment argues that Fincher is a derivative hack like Otto Preminger. Christy Lemire on the program What the Flick and Forrest Wickman from Slate make the obvious argument for Hitchcock. Richard Kelly (writer/director of Donnie Darko) draws the comparison to Stanley Kubrick and Eyes Wide Shut. Matt Achity, also on What the Flick!, argues against the Hitchcock comparison to draw a link to Brian De Palma. Even here on the Sound on Sight podcast, »

The Shawshank Redemption celebrated its 20th anniversary this year, and to mark the occasion stars Tim Robbins, Morgan Freeman and director Frank Darabont reunited for a special Academy screening of the film this week.
Digital Spy goes then and now with the cast of the beloved drama to find out what happened to them in the years since Shawshank's original release.
Tim Robbins (Andy Dufresne)
Already a well-established and respected actor by the time he won the role of Andy Dufresne, Tim Robbins saw his career surge in the wake of Shawshank. He bagged the role after Kevin Costner, Tom Hanks and Brad Pitt turned it down, but their loss was his gain.
Let’s get this out of the way: Mockingjay Part 1 is in fact only half of a bigger picture. There’s nothing we can do about this, we just have to deal with it. But before people lump it into the same marketing gimmick as other recent film series that have split the last chapter into several pieces (I’m looking at you Twilight, Harry Potter, and The Hobbit), the break that happens at the end of this recent entry into the Hunger Games series doesn’t just feel justified, it’s actually completely necessary. In a way it ends in a manner that seems akin to Empire Strikes Back. We know that our main hero is at a turning point and that a break is necessary for them to gather their thoughts before venturing into “the final battle.”
The journey of Katniss Everdeen is one that has been a rocky one for me. »

When we’re talking about ultime movie marathons (or binge-watching these days), and the resurgence of high quality science fiction films on the market, it’s nearly impossible for me to not recommend some amazing space adventures for your next binge-watching session.
Each month the Cinelinx staff will write a handful of articles covering a specified film-related topic. These articles will be notified by the Movielinx banner. Movielinx is an exploration and discussion of our personal connections with film. This month, we're picking our favorite films for binge watching. We'll suggest a theme and the four movies we think would be most enjoyable to watch back-to-back while being related to this theme.
Science fiction has always been one of my favorite genres, and while many different films can claim to have elements rooted in the genre, nothing is as exciting to me to watch, as space-faring adventures. Something about exploring new worlds, »

Sci-fi action thriller Edge Of Tomorrow sagged at the box office, despite glowing reviews. Was its marketing to blame, Ryan wonders...
Looking back over Edge Of Tomorrow’s brief history, and it seems clear that it was a production with something of an identity crisis. Adapted from a Japanese story called All You Need Is Kill, the movie went by that name right up until the summer of 2013, when Warner Bros abruptly changed the title to Edge Of Tomorrow.
Then, when Edge Of Tomorrow got its home release a couple of weeks ago, it seemed to have been given another name change. On its DVD and Blu-ray box, the tagline Live. Die. Repeat, is far more prominent than Edge Of Tomorrow’s title - the movie’s even listed in some online marketplaces as Live Die Repeat: Edge Of Tomorrow.
It’s the latest curious development in the life of »

Finders Keepers also stars Patrick Muldoon (from Starship Troopers), and both actors are more than willing to talk about how the movie gave them the creeps.

After two tours of the paranormal-plagued Collingwood Psychiatric Hospital, Colin Minihan and Stuart Ortiz, the writing/directing duo known as The Vicious Brothers, are stepping out of the asylum’s haunted halls and into the woods for their latest film, Extraterrestrial, now available on VOD. We have three new clips from the movie that show what happens when you engage visitors from the sky.
“From The Vicious Brothers, the creators of Grave Encounters comes a different kind of encounter, one of ‘Extraterrestrial’ origin. Still reeling from her parents’ divorce, April (Daytime Emmy winner, Brittany Allen) is dragged back to the vacation cabin she spent fond summers at as a child accompanied by a group of friends. Her trip down memory lane takes a dramatic and terrifying turn when a fireball descends from the sky and explodes in the nearby woods. Lead by her boyfriend, played by Freddie Stroma (Harry Potter & The Half Blooded Prince, »

With Hollywood bruised from a generally lacklustre summer, audiences may be looking for something a little more outside the box. When it comes to category-defying films Jail Caesar has the potential to plug that gap and have an elephant stand on the plug for good measure. Also known as Stringcaesar (due to the overarching theme of string theory) it started life as a play about the early life of the controversial Roman ruler and features Derek Jacobi and Alice Krige (Star Trek: First Contact, Thor: The Dark World). But what gives the project its edge is the setting – Ancient Rome has been transposed to the prison system and many of the actors are inmates. Shot on the hoof by writer/director Paul Schoolman at institutions in South Africa, Canada and Cardiff, the project has the energy of interactive theatre and the look of a Dogme Collective entry.
