Tagline: "Is She or Isn't She?" Unsane is the latest film from director Steven Soderbergh (Traffic, Erin Brockovich). The film stars Claire Foy (Season of the Witch, 2011) as a woman with a stalker. But, this stalker turns up in the strangest of places, including her very secure psych' ward. Joshua Leonard (The Blair Witch Project, 1999) and Jay Pharoah also star. As well, the film's first trailer is here, from Fingerprint Releasing and Bleecker Street. The official poster, for Unsane, is hosted above. It shows the film's protagonist, in a split screen.

Unsane Trailer: Steven Soderbergh's First Horror Movie Is Here

Unsane Trailer: Steven Soderbergh's First Horror Movie Is Here
Bleecker Street has released the first trailer, poster and photos for Unsane, the new psychological thriller that director Steven Soderbergh shot entirely in secret, using an iPhone. Claire Foy stars as a young woman named Sawyer Valentini, who is trying to deal with a dangerous stalker. After relocating to a new city, she keeps thinking that her stalker has followed her from Boston, and after seeking out support groups for victims of stalking, she finds a facility that she thinks will be able to help her, although she has essentially signed herself over to this insane asylum.

This trailer comes just a week after the first look photo was released, featuring Claire Foy's lead character trying to call the authorities, to let them know she's being held against her will. The nurse informs her that the police get a slew of calls just like that from this facility every week,

Script For Canned Halloween Sequel Surfaces Online

In the opinion of this writer, it’s about time that somebody put out a guide to the Halloween series that’ll help general moviegoers make sense of it. Sure, you and I may know all the specifics, but the timeline is choppier than that of even the X-Men franchise.

Long story short, we had the first six films (well, we should probably exclude Season of the Witch) that remained canonical for the longest time, before H20 disregarded all but the first two, with Resurrection serving as its sequel. Then, Rob Zombie hit the reset button in 2007 as he helmed two pictures set in a universe all their own. And, now, Blumhouse is readying a new take that follows only the 1978 original. Seriously, what the hell?!

Personally, I thought 1995’s Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers to be one of the low points in the series, what with its goofy chosen one-style storyline.

New on Blu-ray and DVD! November 14, 2017

Folks, it's a huge week for home releases so let's just dive right in, shall we? First up is this great set of Romero films from Arrow called "George A. Romero Between Night and Dawn" which collects all the fledgling filmmaker's films following Night of the Living Dead.

The Bottom Shelf: Damnation Alley and George A. Romero: Between Night And Dawn

Nick Aldwinckle Nov 27, 2017

Our latest round-up of genre DVDs and Blu-rays covers George A Romero, Damnation Alley and more...

With real life’s ridiculous news stories almost beyond parody, it seems fitting that 2017 was the year we saw George A. Romero, the master of satirical zombie tomfoolery, responsible for horror classics from Dawn Of The Dead through to Tales From The Dark Side, shuffle off this mortal coil. To commemorate three of Romero’s less celebrated early movies, Arrow Video has released the intriguing Between Night And Dawn set on Bluray, with ample extras to sate the most eager fanboy/girl.

First up, and by far the movie most will know (perhaps due to its 2010 remake), 1973's The Crazies plays out almost like a retread of Romero's 1968 debut Night Of The Living Dead, with a group of townsfolk again subject to a dodgy violence-inducing substance whilst military jackanapes try and control the epidemic.

George A. Romero: Between Night and Dawn, 1971 – 1973.

Directed by George A. Romero.

Starring Lynn Lowry, Raymond Laine, Jan White, Judith Ridley, Will MacMillan, Richard Liberty, Anne Muffly, and Bill Hinzman.

Synopsis:

A collection of three Romero films There’s Always Vanilla (1971), Season of the Witch (1972) and The Crazies (1973) created between Night of the Living Dead (1968) and Dawn of the Dead (1978).

When George Romero passed away in July this year, the film world lost one of its true innovators. A film maker not afraid to try different styles and forms, Romero was best known as the ‘King of the Zombies’ with 1968’s mixture of horror and social allegory Night of the Living Dead a starting point for generations of horror aficionados and independent film makers.

As this collection clearly displays, Romero was equally proficient in other genres. Providing an illuminating lesson in the director’s output between his breakthrough film

Breathe movie review: paralyzed but determined to be mobile (#LFF2017)

MaryAnn’s quick take… A romance and a real-life adventure, full of life-and-death peril and unexpected cheerful good humor, about a pioneer in disability rights and dignity. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

You’ll be dead in two weeks,” growls an unsympathetic doctor to Robin Cavendish, stricken with polio and unable to breathe on his own, as his wife, Diana, springs him from a British hospital. Apparently this was the way things were: Someone like Robin, paralyzed from the neck down and utterly dependent on a respirator, was expected to simply lie in a hospital bed for the rest of his life, presumed to be no more than a few months anyway. I suppose that cantankerous doctor had his patient’s best interests at heart, since no one in Robin’s condition had ever survived outside a hospital before.
