To begin, we must acknowledge a painful fact: omnibus features are only as strong as their weakest link, and it’s clear that production company Xyz Films learned from its past. Xx, thankfully better than the company’s recent Holidays, features four female-directed psychological horror shorts that in large part take on motherhood, domestic life, and parenting. Perhaps it should have stopped there, with two strong stand-outs (Annie Clark, aka St. Vincent, with The Birthday Party, and Karyn Kusama’s Her Only Living Son), the decent The Box (by Jovanka Vuckovic), and the weak link, Roxanne Benjamin’s Don’t Fall. It was as if the best three followed a carefully prescribed assignment; Don’t Fall attempts to jam a feature’s worth of suspense into a short that needed a lot more build-up. Also at odds with the tone is Sofia Carrillo’s beautiful, gothic interstitials of cracked porcelain »

It’s undeniable that prequel comics that tie into franchises in other media are steadily becoming a bigger deal. Case in point, a still young 2017 has already seen the likes of 24: Legacy and Riverdale penciled in to get that very treatment. And, much like those two, the same could be said for The Great Wall: Last Survivor, the subject of today’s review.
Set sixty years before the events depicted in The Great Wall, the upcoming major motion picture starring Matt Damon and Willem Dafoe, The Last Survivor chronicles the journey of a young man named Bao, seamlessly blending history, mythology and fantasy. So, if you happen to be a fan of any of those topics – or a combination of the three – this is something you may want to give a look.
Speaking of taking a gander at the content, it must be said that artist Gian Fernando »

Hollywood is pretty sequel and franchise happy right now, so a lot of long-awaited follow-ups to aging movies are on the way. One of these long-delayed sequels is Jeepers Creepers 3, which has a had a tough road to production but seems to finally be getting some real traction and is reportedly shooting as early as next month. Now, we have a new synopsis for the movie that reveals some story details that tie Jeepers Creepers 3: Cathedral to the events of the original.
The new synopsis comes courtesy of Bloody Disgusting, who uncovered it via a casting call. As has been reported previously, Gina Phillips will be reprising her role as Trish from the first Jeepers Creepers. Assuming this synopsis is correct, in Jeepers Creepers 3, Trish is now raising a son and will actually be going after the Creeper herself in order to stop the monster for good. Here is the synopsis. »
Back in March 2016, we reported that the long-gestating Jeepers Creepers 3 is finally happening, with original Jeepers Creepers star Gina Philips being eyed to return. Director Victor Salva, who wrote and directed Jeepers Creepers and Jeepers Creepers 2, was back to direct with an April 2016 shoot lined up in Vancouver, but that shoot never happened. Today we have word that the sequel is back on track yet again, with the production shifting to Louisiana and filming set to begin next month.
Bloody-Disgusting reports that Victor Salva is returning to write and direct, but it hasn't been confirmed if Gina Phillips is still coming back to reprise her role as Trish from the first Jeepers Creepers. An earlier report in September 2014 revealed that Jonathan Breck will return as The Creeper with Brandon Smith also reprising his role as Sergeant Davis Tubbs from the first movie, but their return has yet to be confirmed. »
