Halloween is upon us. Satisfy your taste for the weird, curious, disturbing and life-scarring with these eight independent horror films available to stream. "The Babadook" (2014) In this nerve-ratcheting haunted house tale by way of Roman Polanski's "Repulsion," Essie Davis gives a breakthrough performance as a woman struggling to cope with-- and even love -- her disturbed six-year-old son. What begins as a gloomy mother-son drama with etchings of "We Need to Talk About Kevin" goes horrifically bat-shit after he opens a creepy children's book portending doom and bloodshed for both of them. The film's classic haunted-house premise is scary, but the bone-chiller is its believable depiction of a broken woman slowly going insane. The film scooped up prizes at Fantastic Fest in September and hits DirecTV on demand Friday, October 31 before hitting theaters November 28. "A Field in England" (2013) Ben Wheatley's "A Field in »

Warner Bros Pictures and DC Comics recently released their full slate of upcoming comic book movies through the year 2020. Outside of Justice League and Wonder Woman, two other announcements really stood out. The Flash and Aquaman will be getting their own films in 2018. With The Flash TV show just premiering to great numbers it makes sense to bring that character to the cineplexes. Well DC has other ideas about who will be playing The Flash.
Along with the announcement of the film, it was announced that The Flash would be played by Ezra Miller. The young actor is best known for his roles in We Need to Talk About Kevin and The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Critics have praised his performance in both films and he is looking like a standout star of this generation. Well that wasn’t enough for comic book fans.

The response to Ezra Miller being cast as The Flash has been vocal to say the least. Some fans believe he's completely wrong for the role due to the fact he shares very few similarities with the Barry Allen from the comic books, while others would have preferred to see the small scren Flash (Grant Gustin) get the chance to speed onto the big screen. The casting appeared to come out of nowhere, though Miller's physical similarities to Adam Driver (who was said to be up for the role of Nightwing in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice before picking Star Wars Episode VII) could mean that the actor playing The Fastest Man Alive was being decided on long before we even realised! Anyone who has seen The Perks of Being a Wallflower or We Need to Talk About Kevin will know that Miller is an incredible actor, and there's »
Other winners include The Tribe, a documentary about Syria and Catch Me Daddy actress Sameena Jabeen Ahmed.
It saw off competition from the likes of Peter Strickland’s The Duke of Burgundy, François Ozon’s The New Girlfriend and Julius Avery’s Son of a Gun, starring Ewan McGregor (click here for full list).
Leviathan tells the tragic tale of conflict between an individual and a corrupt system in a small Russian town.
It marks the fourth feature from Zvyagintsev and is Russia’s submission for the Best Foreign-Language Oscar. The film debuted at the Cannes Film Festival in May, where many expected it to win the Palme d’Or, instead winning Best Screenplay.
It will be released in the UK by Curzon.
The award was announced at a glitzy ceremony held in London’s Banqueting Hall, Whitehall, and hosted »

Which seems to be yet another controversial casting decision, as Ezra Miller will be portraying Barry Allen/The Flash on the big screen. I'm going to state my reasonings as to why I support him in the role. He's A Talented Actor I'm not familiar with Ezra Miller, so surely Warner Bros saw something in him to end up nabbing the role as Barry Allen/The Flash. Particularly looking at his roles in The Perks of Being A Wallflower and We Need To Talk About Kevin, meaning he's incredibly talented no doubt. I'll be sure to watch those films at some point, in order to get an idea what he'll be like as Barry. I Like The Casting.. Simply Because It's Different I don't expect everyone to like this choice, I get that. But for me this is interesting, seeing similarities in reaction to Jesse Eisenberg being cast as Lex »
Warner Bros. chairman Kevin Tsujihara announced that they’d be making a feature film about The Flash during Time Warner’s earnings meeting Wednesday, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Tsujihara also announced that Miller had landed the part of the DC Comics superhero. The movie is set to hit theaters in 2018.
Flash is the superhero alter ego of Barry Allen, a young man who has both super speed and reflexes. As a member of the Justice League it stands to reason that Miller will also be appearing in some of the upcoming Justice League movies, the first of which is slated to come out in 2017.

Following the huge news from Marvel Studios this week, with Robert Downey Jr. set to join the cast of Captain America 3, kicking off a Civil War adaptation, Warner Bros. has now dropped its own piece of massive DC movie news, revealing its full line-up of superhero offerings set to follow Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice!
And that’s not all, as it has also been revealed that Ezra Miller (We Need to Talk About Kevin, The Perks of Being a Wallflower) has been cast as the big screen version of The Flash, while Jason Momoa (Game of Thrones, Conan the Barbarian) has finally been confirmed as Aquaman.
Here’s the full schedule of DC movies slated to arrive between 2016 and 2020:

Warner Bros. has officially announced a massive expansion of the Studio's DC Comics-branded movie universe with plans to release a slate of at least ten movies -- as well as additional stand-alone Batman and Superman films -- from 2016 through 2020, expanding the DC universe very much in the same way Marvel has developed their Avengers universe, which expanded further with Guardians of the Galaxy earlier this year. Here's the official plans for future Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema releases of DC Comics movies, not including said stand-alone Batman and Superman films: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice on March 25, 2016 Suicide Squad directed by David Ayer (Fury) on August 5, 2016 Wonder Woman starring Gal Gadot on June 23, 2017 Justice League Part One directed by Zack Snyder and starring Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Amy Adams on November 17, 2017 The Flash starring Ezra Miller (We Need to Talk About Kevin) on March 23, 2018 Aquaman starring »

Just one small part of Warner Bros.' massive announcement today that laid out their DC Comics movie slate was the news that Ezra Miller will play Barry Allen in The Flash, debuting in 2018. The actor will likely have a cameo appearance in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, where the entire Justice League team will presumably be revealed for the first time.
The Flash doesn't have a writer or director attached at this time, but it will occupy one of two 2018 release dates (March 23, 2018 or July 27, 2018) that Warner Bros. set in August, with Jason Momoa's Aquaman movie taking the other slot. Ironically, the news comes just one week after The Flash TV series debuted on The CW, starring Grant Gustin as Barry Allen, but the show will have no connection to this burgeoning movie universe.
Amongst the handful of DC bombshell announcements today was the news that Ezra Miller had been cast as The Flash, with the character getting his own solo outing in 2018 and presumably joining the Justice League film as well, which we now know will be directed by Zack Snyder. This piece of casting might disappoint some as it means that the DC TV Universe will be separate from the film one (as Grant Gustin plays the character on television), but it’s still pretty exciting stuff.
DC’s master plan is starting to come together now, with news of several other characters getting the solo outing treatment (Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg) as well, and of course, the announcement of the Justice League film being split into two parts and arriving in 2017 and 2019, respectively. As for how The Flash will factor into all this, early reports say that he’ll »

Warner Bros. dropped a dazzling reveal of their DC superhero blockbuster plan in a shareholder meeting Wednesday morning, announcing the ten tentpoles coming through 2020. Led off by Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice, the DC cinematic universe will continue with Suicide Squad directed by David Ayer also in 2016. The next year Gal Gadot will get a standalone Wonder Woman flick before Justice League Part 1 reunites Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, and Amy Adams.
In 2018, DC fans will be introduced to two new superheroes: Ezra Miller, impressive in We Need To Talk About Kevin and The Perks of Being A Wallflower, will star in The Flash and Game of Thrones‘ Jason Momoa will lead Aquaman.
Shazam will hit in 2019 starring The Rock as Black Adam. Justice League – Part 2 will also arrive that year from director Zack Snyder. The cybernetically-enhanced Cyborg, a member of the Justice League in DC comics lore, »

Ben Fritz from the Wall Street Journal is reporting on the Warner Bros. shareholder talk taking place this morning and studio head Kevin Tsujihara is letting loose with the studio's plans for their upcoming slate of DC Comics films and it goes a little something like this: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice on March 25, 2016 Suicide Squad on August 5, 2016 Wonder Woman starring Gal Gadot on June 23, 2017 Justice League directed by Zack Snyder on November 17, 2017 The Flash starring Ezra Miller (We Need to Talk About Kevin) on March 23, 2018 Aquaman starring Jason Momoa on July 27, 2018 Shazam starring Dwayne Johnson as Black Adam on April 5, 2019 Justice League 2 on June 14, 2019 There are still two additional untitled DC film releases planned for 2020 on April 3 and June 19, but for now I think we have more than enough to keep us busy with superhero rumors for the next several years. Hell, look at all the possible names »

Following the reveal of their upcoming DC Comics movies (which you can read all about by clicking here), Warner Bros. have revealed that Ezra Miller will play the big screen version of The Flash. You'll have to click on the link above for details on when and where he'll turn up, but this obviously confirms that we won't see any sort of crossover between the television and movie universes. It's worth noting that Miller bears something of a resemblence to Star Wars Episode VII's Adam Driver who was said to be up for the role of Nightwing in Batman v Supeman: Dawn of Justice, but it could be that he was in fact being lined up for The Flash instead. This is an unexpected choice, but Miller has delivered stellar performances in movies The Perks of Being a Wallflower and We Need to Talk About Kevin. Also made official by »

It’s surely a mother’s worst nightmare, or at least one of them: you’re at home, watching Crimewatch on the sofa, and you suddenly realise that the shadowy figure in the grainy CCTV footage on the television looks uncannily like your son. Isn’t that him, brutally assaulting a homeless person?
The Dinner (I nostri regazza) tells the story of two sets of well-to-do parents who fear that their respective teenage son and daughter may have carried out this vicious crime. As it becomes clear that their children really are the culprits, the resulting emotional fallout threatens to tear the parents’ relationships apart.
Of all the movie hybrids, William H. Macy's feature directorial debut, Rudderless, is among the strangest, combining plot elements of the schlocky 1980s rock 'n' roll franchise Eddie and the Cruisers with that of somber grieving dramas like We Need to Talk About Kevin. The result, despite a few stellar moments, is a not-quite-tragic-enough meditation on mourning and self-healing, crossed with a not-quite-gritty-enough portrait of indie rockers trying to break big. A fine Billy Crudup plays a once-successful businessman turned alcoholic, houseboat-dwelling recluse, shell-shocked after the sudden death of his college-aged singer-songwriter son. At a dying open mic-bar a local teen (Anton Yelchin, in nattering Jesse Eisenberg mode) sees Crudup's chara »
