Are You Ready, Pitches? The Aca-Awesome Pitch Perfect 3 Soundtrack Is Here

Are you ready, pitches? Because Pitch Perfect 3's aca-awesome soundtrack has finally arrived. Now, while we don't necessarily think the Pitch Perfect franchise needed yet another movie, we'd be lying if we said the 19-track album didn't feature a ton of incredible (and incredibly catchy) songs. In addition to the Barden Bellas' cover of Sia's "Cheap Thrills" and their rival group's cover of Avicii's "Wake Me Up," the soundtrack also includes the cast's absolutely gorgeous remix of "Cups" with George Michael's "Freedom! '90" that they did with contestants on The Voice. There are also songs by Iggy Azalea, Zedd, and a few other real-life musicians. The third glimpse into the life of Beca, Fat Amy, Emily, Chloe, Aubrey, and the rest of the Bellas follows the a capella group postcollege. After experiencing the highs of winning the world championships, the Bellas are stunned to discover that most

Pitch Perfect 3 Exclusive: Hear the Bellas Take On Sia's "Cheap Thrills"!

  • BuzzSugar
The Bellas are back in this month's Pitch Perfect 3, and as much as we feel like we can't wait to see the cast reunited, we really can't wait to hear them. The fun of the Pitch Perfect movies is in the songs the group chooses to sing a capella, and they've introduced us to new favorite songs over the years - or totally made old favorites sound new. Case in point is Sia's "Cheap Thrills," which the Bellas perform in the film and which we exclusively have a clip of. Watch the Bellas perform the recent classic and get excited for the release on Dec. 22! RelatedThe Barden Bellas Put Their Spin on a Pink Song in This Pitch Perfect 3 Riff-Off

Interview: Talking ’68 Kill’ & More With Producer Travis Stevens

If you’re up on your independent genre film producers then Travis Stevens is a name that you’ll be very familiar with – if not, you should seriously check out his body of work. His IMDb producing credits read like a carefully crafted must-watch list featuring films such as Starry Eyes, Cheap Thrills, Teenage Cocktail, Buster’s Mal Heart and We Are Still Here. Stevens is the founder and CEO of Snowfort Pictures which, in the words of their website, is ‘a boutique production company specializing in the development, financing, and production of commercial genre films. Working with both established filmmakers and first-time talent, Snowfort Pictures partners with financiers, sales agents and distributors from around the world to bring unique, high-quality films to audiences hungry for something different.‘

Wild ideas by Jennie Kermode

Trailer party tonight

One of the biggest hits on the horror festival circuit this year, pulp crime spectacular 68 Kill is about to be released on DVD and Blu-ray. It's the sort of film you can see once and never forget, even if you're a critic who watches 20 films a week. Earlier this year, when it screened at Fantasia, I chatted to producer Travis Stevens about how it came into being.

Liza introduces her brother

"The primary factor was writer/director Trent Haaga," he told me. "We've had a friendship for many years - we worked together on a movie called Cheap Thrills and you know, we'd both made a few movies since then, but he called me up and he said 'I want to write and direct this thing called 68 Kill based on a crime novel I've read.' So I read the novel to see what this thing is and it's a.

Film Review: ‘Bad Match’

Film Review: ‘Bad Match’
It’s a sign of how little most movies channel contemporary experience that the manners and habits and attitudes of the age of Tinder have remained a relatively off-screen topic. This past January, the Sundance drama “Newness,” directed by Drake Doremus (it has yet to be released), was a designer soap opera that had a few telling observations to make about what it feels like to live your life in a digital meat market. As a movie, though, it didn’t quite take hold. The new pulp thriller “Bad Match” is darker, grimier, and more entertaining. Written and directed by David Chirchirillo, who co-wrote the scurrilous violent hipster comedy “Cheap Thrills” (2013), the movie is “Fatal Attraction” for the age of the revolving-door hook-up, and in its fevered low-budget way it’s just clever enough to do what it sets out to do. It gives toxic masculinity its just desserts.

'Bad Match': Film Review

David Chirchirillo, co-writer of 2014's vicious black comedy Cheap Thrills, turns his attention to online dating in Bad Match, the tale of a hookup gone very, very wrong. Blending contemporary concern about the dehumanizing effect of app-enabled sex with much older tropes, it isn't quite the crazy-spurned-woman exploitation flick it seems to be. Though it's no Fatal Attraction, the modest thriller should play well with younger viewers in its limited run.

Jack Cutmore-Scott plays Harris, a broadly drawn cad who sees nothing dickish about his habit of bedding as many women as possible and never contacting them again. When more...

Interview with the Creative Team Behind the Surreal Scares of The Evil Within 2

  • DailyDead
This past summer, I was invited to Dallas for the annual QuakeCon gaming celebration, and while there, I entered the haunted city of Union in an immersive demo for the new video game The Evil Within 2. After surviving the demo, I had the chance to sit down with some of the creative team from The Evil Within 2, including Tango Gameworks Studio Director Shinji Mikami (also known for his work on the Resident Evil video game series), Game Director John Johanas, and Writer Trent Haaga (Cheap Thrills, Deadgirl).

Continue reading to learn about expanding the world of the 2014 game, bringing back Sebastian Castellanos as a main character, and the emotional journey behind the surreal scares of the sequel, which is out now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Blu-ray Review: The Devil's Candy Continues to Rock

Out today on Blu-ray and DVD from Scream Factory, The Devil's Candy, is Sean Byrne's hard-rocking horror flick. You may have seen that we've given a lot of support to this film, and that's simply because it's awesome. You can read Todd's review here and my own interview with Byrne here, among our other coverage. Because of these previous articles, there's not a whole lot more to be said on the film, I'll mention the basics: Ethan Embry (Cheap Thrills, Fashionista) stars as Jesse, a struggling painter and heavy metal-loving dad who's trying to support his family. He gets an opportunity to do just that, but at what cost? As it turns out, the stakes are high, there's a Faustian deal in the mix, and then there's a...
