Netflix’s original thriller Rebirth gets its first trailer

12 July 2016 1:25 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Netflix has released the official trailer for Rebirth only a few days before its global release on the streaming service. The psychological thriller is written and directed by Karl Mueller (Mr. Jones) and follows Kyle (Fran Kranz), a man numbed by his 9-5 lifestyle, until his old friend Zack (Adam Goldberg) unexpectedly arrives to shatter his routine. Check out the trailer here…

Get up. Go to work. Come home, dinner, bed, do it all again. That’s life, every day, every year, until you die — unless you’ve got what it takes to be reborn. Rebirth gives a new lease on life, but only if you’re willing to pay the price.

A twisted psychological thriller from writer/director Karl Mueller (Mr. Jones) and producer Ross Dinerstein (The Pact, The Nightmare). Long-lost buddy Zack gets suburban dad Kyle on a bus to a Rebirth seminar, sending him down a rabbit hole of psychodrama, »

Nicholas McCarthy Talks Easter Segment of Holidays!

19 April 2016 2:48 PM, PDT | | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Nicholas McCarthy is one of the most unique filmmakers working in the horror genre today. While a lot of directors focus on how flashy and fast-paced they’re able to make their genre films, McCarthy’s films (The Pact and one of my all time faves, At The Devil’S Door) have always felt like they’d be better suited in the ’70s, giving genre fans slowburn stories frequently focusing on familial bonds and darkness invading those bonds.

Last year, I was lucky enough to pay visit to the set of McCarthy’s Easter segment of the now in theaters anthology film, Holidays. What I saw while visiting that set was a director who got stuff done while remaining calm and collected. The final product of Easter is quite possible one of the most thought provoking anthology segments in quite some time, challenging the different icons we’re asked as children to believe in. »

Exclusive Q&A: Andrew Bowen on Playing a Quirky Killer in the Horror Anthology Holidays

18 April 2016 9:32 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Some of the biggest days on the calendar are viewed through a dark lens in the new horror anthology Holidays. Featuring a plethora of intriguing characters, one of the film’s standouts is Andrew Bowen’s performance as Reggie: an unconventional serial killer looking for his next victim on New Year’s Eve. Following Holidays’ world premiere at Tribeca Film Festival (and VOD debut) and ahead of its April 22nd theatrical release, we caught up with Bowen for our latest Q&A feature.

Andrew, thanks for taking the time to answer some questions for us, and congratulations on your excellent work in Holidays. What attracted you to this film and the role of Reggie in the “New Year’s Eve” segment?

Andrew Bowen: Thank you so much! It was such a cool project to work on. I got involved after my friend and producer Gabriella Lugo (who produced [the] “Christmas »

Tribeca 2016 Review: Holidays

15 April 2016 9:32 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

For centuries, annual holidays have been widely celebrated as a time to put aside one’s worries and responsibilities in order to come together with loved ones and enjoy each other’s company. Holidays are magical, not only because they represent a time of love and harmony, but also because many of them are commemorated on a global scale, making them not only a positive junction, but a universal one that can be shared by nearly all of humankind.

Although we can all look back on our happy moments as a collective people, we can also all relate to the sense of dread that often goes hand-in-hand with an approaching festivity. Holidays like Valentine’s Day can be ridiculously expensive, Christmastime can mean grueling hosting duties for many, as well as fights with family. Mother’s Day and Father’s Day can bring emotional baggage with it if a person has a lost parent, »

Holidays Review [Tribeca 2016]

15 April 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Growing up, I was a sucker for gimmicks. Blame my Mom. Every time a new M&M flavor (did you know they make Coconut and Cherry?) or Oreo remix hit the shelves, our house was the first on the block to sample it. I like to think it’s this upbringing that now influences my taste in horror films, like my adoration of holiday themes (Krampus! Gremlins!) and anthology collections. Or how about an entire horror anthology themed around major holidays, aptly titled – you guessed it – Holidays! It was going to take an act of Satan to keep me away from this one…

Let me start by confirming that yes, Holidays works. It’s an admitted mixed-bag of highs and lows (more highs), but that’s to be expected with eight *very* different segments. Some will love Kevin Smith’s Halloween whorishness, while others will start with their typical anti-Smith »

Trailer For Horror Anthology Holidays

15 March 2016 3:47 AM, PDT | | See recent TheMovieBit news »

With the likes of Kevin Smith (Clerks, Red State), Gary Shore (Dracula Untold), and Nicholas McCarthy (The Pact) taking a segment, the first trailer for horror anthology Holidays, which uncovers the dark side of annual celebrations like Christmas, Father’s Day, Easter, and St. Patrick’s Day (which Shore will be taking the helm). A fine group of genre directors have been assembled for this, and the trailer has the right amount of creepiness to subvert the holidays and traditions weekend take for granted. Horror anthologies can be a bit hit and miss, but Holidays seems to be doing it right. If anything, it promises to be a lot of fun. Released: April 15th  »

The Holidays are Hell in this First Trailer

14 March 2016 2:53 PM, PDT | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

Holidays is a horror anthology from ten directors. The film takes a bloody swipe at those special days, that come by once a year, including: Valentine's Day, Labour Day and Mother's Day. Some of the standout directors from the series are Kevin Smith of Clerks (1994) and Tusk (2014) fame, Nicholas McCarthy (The Pact) and Adam Egypt Mortimer (Some Kind of Hate). The film's first trailer offers a brief glimpse at each of the stories. The film bills itself as somewhat counter-culture in nature. Each story will challenge the viewer's perspective on folklore, culture, traditions and their perspectives on these special, or stressful, times of the year. The film is set to have its World Premiere in Tribeca. After April 14th, the film will be available through video-on-demand platforms, on the following day. Fans of Southbound, Tales of Halloween or other horror anthologies are encouraged to take a look below. Release Date: April 15th, »

Legends' Caity Lotz Talks Lighter/Dark Sara, Bigger Fights, Retro Threads: 'I Should Have Lived in the '70s'

27 January 2016 10:00 AM, PST | | See recent news »

Just over two-and-a-half years ago, before she first booked her Arrow role, Caity Lotz could not have imagined that she would one day come to be regarded as one of TV’s premiere badasses.

Back then, “I was deep in my indie film world,” the actress recalls. “I was coming off of Mad Men and then doing The Machine, The Pact, those movies….

“And if you can go back, like, further than that, I didn’t think I’d be acting!” she continues. So to have played a key role on Arrow during Season 2, loom large for much of Season »
