The Voices, 2015.
Directed by Marjane Satrapi.
Likeable factory worker, Jerry, pursues his office crush with the help of his evil talking pets, but things turn sinister when she stands him up for a date.
“The voices made me do it.”. Ah, the standard alibi for the psychotic serial killer looking to escape with an insanity plea. Only the kind-hearted killer at the centre of Marjane Satrapi’s blackest of black comedies might just be telling the truth. Reynolds plays Jerry, an awkward, polite factory worker who sees a therapist (Weaver), has a crush on his co-worker (Arterton) and takes pills to calm the voices in his head – the importance of which takes little time to become monstrously clear. The difference from the last time Reynolds heard voices telling him to murder people is that in The Amityville Horror they »

What sets one horror franchise apart from another, and how do they evolve over time? As Rec 4 lands on disc, we take a look...
The first instalment in any long running horror franchise is, generally, the one people reckon is the best. And in a lot of cases, they might be right. But as franchises get longer and start clocking up four or more movies in the same universe, things tend to change.
It might be that producers have taken note of popular actors or elements in previous films and want to expand on them; it might be that years have passed and tastes have changed; or it might be that new directors want to put their stamp on a story, but either way, the fifth or sixth movie in a series is usually pretty different from the first one. And the thing that a franchise becomes known for might »
Once upon a time, most movie theaters showed more than a single feature. For the price of your ticket, you’d get two movies, maybe a cartoon, sometimes a featurette. You got good value for your money in those days especially at second or third run theaters or revival houses. This was in the days before DVD, Blu-Ray, or even VHS.
In fact, for a long time, the movie studios only got one bite of the apple. Oh, a few movies might show up again; Disney did a good job of bringing classics out of their vaults. When the movies were sold to show on TV, that would also generate some revenue but nothing like today when a major part of the money made by films comes from Blu-Ray and DVD sales. (Aside: I wonder how true that will remain with Netflix and Hulu, et al.)

I assume that people in horror movies do not watch horror movies. If they did watch horror movies, they would know not to move into that creepy old house that used to be a 19th Century funeral parlor. Then again, if they did not move into that creepy old house, there would be no horror movie, and we would not have anything to talk about.
Creepy old house filled with unstoppable evil is the premise of We Are Still Here, a new horror movie premiering at SXSW. It tells the story of a couple who move into a creepy old house in an equally creepy New England town following the death of their son in a car crash. Unsurprisingly, the house is also home to some vengeful spirits who demand a sacrifice every thirty years…and it looks like the town is going to be certain that the newcomers appease their abode. »
