The Jason Banker/Amy Everson-written, Jason Banker (Toad Road)-directed Felt knocked people on their asses when it played at last year’s Fantastic Fest (where the film’s star and co-writer Everson won the “Next Wave” Spotlight Competition award for Best Actress) and AFI Film Festival, giving audiences a shocking and intense experience. Billed as a film that swings hard at rape culture and its effect on people, the film made plenty of waves and was one that left people talking for quite some time. The film now has an official (and daring) poster and theatrical/VOD release dates (June 26, 2015 (theatrical) / July 21, 2015 (digital/VOD), and from the buzz and talk about the film, it’s that you should not only see, but be ready to not forget anytime soon. Banker’s Toad Road was a very interesting film, and I for one, am very anxious to see how Felt compares to that. »

Edgy, provocative, and often hilarious, the drag scene is one of the most fascinating forms of entertainment. We now live in a world of demanded political correctness, and while the drag scene has greatly evolved over the last few years, the taboo sensationalism of it all still rings true. Thanks to the success of Logo’s RuPaul’s Drag Race, drag queens and drag culture have started to shift into the mainstream as something more than just Tootsie or The Rocky Horror Picture Show. However, you don’t need to be on a reality show competition to make a name for yourself in the drag community, and horror fans are missing out on the scream queen we didn’t know we needed.

‘It Follows’ is fun and gorgeously moody
Is David Robert Mitchell’s atmospheric horror film It Follows parody? Its ambiguous decade could be the heyday of ‘80s American horror, replete with tube TVs, a very retro-looking aboveground pool, and costuming that’s very Blue Velvet. But then there’s a reading device that looks like a rather chic Kindle… read the full article.
‘Chappie’ is gloriously bonkers
Writer-director Neill Blomkamp pushes all his chips onto the table with this fascinating sci-fi gamble that dares you not to be entertained. Derivative, ultra-violent, and completely baffling, Chappie also manages to be insightful and sweet at times. This technically-accomplished and thematically-suspect robot melodrama has something for everyone to love (and hate). Mostly, it offers the giddy exhilaration of a movie that’s determined to tell its story, no matter how bat-shit crazy it is… click here to read the full article.

“Diane, it’s 11:05 pm. I’m in my room at the Great Northern Hotel. There’s not a star in the sky tonight. Ben Horne is in custody. The trail narrows, Diane. I’m very close. But the last two steps are always the darkest and most difficult.”
Have you ever begged a secret out of someone? They let a tiny piece slip, and suddenly finding out the whole truth is the only thing that matters. You plead that they just tell you. You pick away at them, breaking them down, again and again, until it goes on too long for either of you and you can’t take it anymore, you just need to know and they need to tell you, right now. They sigh, dramatically. »

We’ve all made sacrifices to be able to do whatever it is that we want to do. Some more than others, but it’s just a fact that in life, there are moments and opportunities that present themselves and we’re faced with the question of “how far will you go?”, a question that based on the situation, could lead decent people to become either a different person or bring out who they were all along. Some films address that question and challenge their viewers to ask themselves that same question, how far would You go to attain that goal, that dream that you’ve always had? Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer’s brilliantly haunting film, Starry Eyes, brings that question to its audience, and gives them a film that like most Great films, plants a seed in your head, one that opens up into a film that can »
