‘The Lego Batman Movie’ is (Surprisingly) a Horror Fan’s Wet Dream

It’s like The Cabin in the Woods… for kids! We horror fans are often begging to see our favorite villains mashed together within the same universe, which is probably why so many of us hold movies like The Monster Squad and Freddy vs. Jason so near and dear – it’s also why little Easter eggs […] »

Godzilla: King Of The Monsters Adds Bradley Whitford to the Cast

2 June 2017 6:38 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Following his recent role in Jordan Peele's Get Out, Bradley Whitford is joining the growing cast of the massive creature feature Godzilla: King of the Monsters.

The news of Whitford's casting comes from THR. It's not yet known what type of character will be played by Whitford, who recently co-starred as Dean Armitage in Jordan Peele's Get Out and also played Hadley in The Cabin in the Woods—just two of many memorable roles Whitford has played throughout his career.

Whitford joins a cast that includes Millie Bobby Brown, Vera Farmiga, Kyle Chandler, Ken Watanabe, Aisha Hinds, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Charles Dance, Thomas Middleditch, and Sally Hawkins reprising her role as Project Monarch scientist Dr. Vivienne Graham.

Plot details are being kept under wraps for now, but it was teased several years ago that the antagonistic creatures Rodan, Mothra, and King Ghidorah are expected to appear in the follow-up film, »

Stephen King says Cujo makes an appearance in The Dark Tower movie

27 May 2017 12:59 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Earlier this month we got our first look the long-awaited big screen adaptation of The Dark Tower, with eagle-eyed viewers noticing a couple of Stephen King Easter eggs with references to The Shining and It both present in the trailer.

However, it seems they won’t be the only references to King’s other works within the movie, and the author has revealed to IGN that there is one in particular that he’s fond of: “If viewers who are familiar with my work look very closely, they might see Cujo. Keep an eye out for Cujo in New York City.”

For anyone unaware, Cujo is the rabid St. Bernard at the centre of King’s 1981 novel, which was itself adapted for the big screen in 1983.

Giveaway: Get Out Blu-Ray

18 May 2017 7:21 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Jordan Peele definitely brought out the urban social scares.

Peele became the first African-American writer/director to cross the $100 million mark at the box office with his debut of Get Out. This breakout hit is rooted with modern day topics, captivating audiences with thrilling conflicts and danger at every turn.

Get Out is already available on Digital HD and will be arriving on Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand next Tuesday, May 23. It’ll have an alternate ending that flips the script, a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the film, and much more.

Here’s the synopsis:

Now that Chris (Daniel Kaluuya, Sicario), a young African-American man, and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams, “Girls”), a young white woman, have been dating for several months, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate at her family’s upstate home with parents Missy (Catherine Keener, Captain Phillips) and Dean (Bradley Whitford, »

The 20 Best Horror Films Of The 21st Century, From ’28 Days Later’ to ‘Get Out’

12 May 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

We live in scary times that can often feel like lot more unsettling than any fictional horror movie, but some of the best horror movies tap into real world terrors — and that’s especially true of the highlights from the last two decades of the genre, one of the most varied in its history. From graphic depictions of gory showdowns to subtler looks at psychological dread, the best horror movies of the 21st century typically focused on a handful of people struggling to survive a dark force beyond their comprehension. Who can’t relate to that? Here are 20 of the most potent examples, ranked from top to bottom.

20. “The Descent” (2005)

Neil Marshall’s economical monster movie takes place almost exclusively within the confines of a shadowy cave and the terrible, terrible things lurking within it. After a gradual beginning in which coworkers and friends venture into a cave during their »

The Dark Tower trailer features Easter eggs for The Shining and It

4 May 2017 8:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday fans got their first look at the long-awaited trailer for the film adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower series of novels, but tucked away in the background of Matthew McConaughey’s Man in Black unleashing hell on earth and Idris Elba’s Gunslinger performing one of the sickest looking reloads in cinematic history is a photograph of the Overlook Hotel present in arguably the author’s most famous work, The Shining.

There is also a brief shot of young hero Jake stumbling across a destroyed circus with some balloons floating, hinting at Pennywise the Clown and It.

For those unaware, the different worlds found within The Dark Tower are used as a hub to connect all of Stephen King’s novels into a singular universe – something the film is clearly tipping its hat too with these references.

The Dark Tower Trailer – Flickering Myth Reaction

The Flickering Myth team reacts…

Should we be worried about The Dark Tower? After all, we’re only four months from release and the first trailer only landed yesterday [watch it here]. It invokes memories of a few years ago when 20th Century Fox held back trailers for Fantastic Four because there was a lot of trouble brewing behind the scenes. The same thing happened last year when Sony kept delaying the first trailer for their Ghostbusters remake. Can we expect to see similar stories coming out of The Dark Tower once the dust has settled?

We’ll soon find out but for now, let’s see what the Flickering Myth staff thought of the trailer.

The Dark Tower trailer classified, expected soon

30 April 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Aside from a leaked trailer (which was quickly removed), a few images, and a teaser poster, we’ve seen very little in the way of marketing for the upcoming big screen adaptation of Stephen King’s fantasy epic The Dark Tower, as it’s release has been pushed back from February to July and now finally August.

Well, it looks like all of that is about to change, as Trailer Track is reporting that the first trailer for the Nikolaj Arcel-directed movie has been classified by Consumer Protection BC in Canada, meaning that it will likely arrive online within the next week or two (perhaps with the North American release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 this Friday?). The trailer has been approved for exhibition with all films, and runs for 2 minutes and 32 seconds.

9 Best Stoner Movies, From ‘Inherent Vice’ to ‘The Cabin in the Woods’

Inherent Vice

Who doesn’t want to watch detective Joaquin Phoenix stumbling around Los Angeles trying to solve the disappearance of his former girlfriend while fried out of his mind? “Inherent Vice” has a stoner protagonist so funny and oddly charming that he could be the proud face of 4/20. But a lot of what makes the movie such a perfect stoner film is how Paul Thomas Anderson filters Thomas Pynchon’s novel through his own hazy, stoned-out filter. Watching “Inherent Vice” provides the actual sensation of being spaced out. You’ll be laughing nonstop one minute and then scratching your head the next. Long stretches seem to fade into each other. When it comes to stoner movies, “Inherent Vice” is a new classic.

David Bowie and the Indestructible Metaphors of Mirror Scenes

11 April 2017 2:01 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

A video essay examines our most private moments.

Strap on your thinking caps for this one, film fans, because it’s a doozy.

According to director Nicolas Roeg (The Man Who Fell to Earth, Don’t Look Now, The Witches), mirrors are cinema in all its glory and in fact the essence of the medium. See, mirrors are the only time we truly look at ourselves; photographs of us are from other perspectives, for other people or posterity, and as such we don’t show our real faces in them, we show projections of who we think we should be or how we think we should feel in a certain situation. But the mirror isn’t public, it’s private, it is us alone with ourselves and thus the way we look into mirrors, into ourselves, is different from every other face we show the world.

The mirror is an eye, Roeg »
