Official Trailer for 'Night Night' Thriller About Recovering from Trauma

Official Trailer for 'Night Night' Thriller About Recovering from Trauma
"I'm just feeling very vulnerable, and confused right now." K Factor Films has released an official trailer for an indie thriller titled Night Night, marking the feature directorial debut of actress / filmmaker Niki Koss. This film hasn't played at any festivals, but will be opening in November for anyone interested. After waking up from a horrific car accident, April must find a way to work through her trauma and a will to survive a recovery from hell. Koss introduces it: "A one of a kind aesthetic, coupled with a fierce female lead is the formula that I believe makes Night Night so special." The film stars Brenna D'Amico as April, with Deric Augustine, Matty Cardarople, Eric Roberts, and featuring Tony Todd. Night Night is a "refreshing new take on a female driven psychological thriller that the world is more than ready for." This looks like it becomes extra creepy once the story really gets going,

‘Bergman Island’ Debuts; ‘The Rescue’, ‘Lamb’ Expand After Brisk Open; NYC Gets A New Alamo Drafthouse – Specialty Preview

‘Bergman Island’ Debuts; ‘The Rescue’, ‘Lamb’ Expand After Brisk Open; NYC Gets A New Alamo Drafthouse – Specialty Preview
IFC presents Mia Hansen-Løve’s Cannes entry Bergman Island, Film Movement brings Wheel of Fortune and Fantasy to the arthouse this weekend, as A24’s surprise hit Lamb and Greenwich Entertainment’s The Rescue go wider week two after a strong open. It’s early days but a nascent specialty revival may be in the works ahead of a stream of potential hits from The French Dispatch to Spencer to Belfast.

Icelandic horror folktale Lamb moves from 500 to over 800 screens after viewers – can we say flocked? – to the Ari Aster-ish genre pic (Hereditary in 2018 was also from A24). Adventure documentary The Rescue, by the directors of Free Solo, where intrepid divers save a Thai boys soccer club trapped in a remote flooded cave, expands from five screens to 552.

“Is there hope? Yes” said Howard Cohen, co-president of Roadside Attractions, which is opening Hard Luck Love Song. “There have to

‘Hard Luck Love Song’ Review: Impatient Viewers May Tune Out Long Before the Music Ends

‘Hard Luck Love Song’ Review: Impatient Viewers May Tune Out Long Before the Music Ends
The first 40 minutes of “Hard Luck Love Song” are so aggressively off-putting, even the unluckiest of audiences may be tempted to to walk out of the theater or turn off the TV. The arrantly contrived last 20 minutes are equally patience-testing — and borderline loony to boot. Everything in between is bearable, if only by comparison, but not particularly worth the bother.

Director Justin Corsbie and co-writer Ugoretz devote an inordinate amount of time to an interminable slog of a set-up, introducing their protagonist, Jesse (Michael Dorman of Apple TV’s “For All Mankind”), as a struggling country music singer-songwriter who, judging from what we hear of his songs, might do well to give up the struggle. When it comes to making money, he’s more successful as a pool hustler. But not always. When we first see him rolling into an unnamed small city in his battered Chevy Nova, he has his hand in a cast.

Fun Trailer for Talking Dogs Comedy 'Pups Alone' with Dolph Lundgren

Fun Trailer for Talking Dogs Comedy 'Pups Alone' with Dolph Lundgren
"Operation: One Ruff Christmas is a go." Saban + Paramount have unveiled an official trailer for another ridiculous dog movie called Pups Alone, which seems to be a riff on Home Alone but with dogs taking out thieves. Also known as Pups Alone: A Christmas Peril, this family comedy opens in November. While everyone is away on a company ski trip, Robert's jealous neighbor hires two inept thieves to steal his latest invention. The neighborhood dogs will use Robert's inventions to set up a house of horrors for the thieves. This laugh-out-loud comedy stars Dolph Lundgren and features the voices of Jennifer Love Hewitt, Jerry O'Connell, Danny Trejo, and Rob Schneider. With a special appearance by Eric Roberts, plus Keith David, and Malcolm McDowell. Quite an eclectic cast. This looks excruciatingly dumb, but at the same time, I kinda want to watch a "Home Alone but with dogs" movie. Even if it is bad,

‘Unchained’ VOD Review

‘Unchained’ VOD Review
Stars: Mair Mulroney, Maricris Lapaix, Roni Weissman, Kasarlina Wang, Svetlana Constantine, Larry L Andrews, Taya Valkyrie, Eric Roberts | Written by Raphaello, John Bryan, Ilia Constantine | Directed by Raphaello

It seems the “captured female forced to fight” genre is back in full swing these days… After all we recently had the likes of Hellkat, which saw a woman fight for her life – literally; and to a lesser extent Female Fight Squad, in which women fight each other in an underground club, oftentimes against their will.

Unchained sees Aella (Mair Mulroney), an idealistic former soldier struggling to reintegrate into society, is kidnapped and forced to compete in an underground fight ring. Every night is a fight for her life as she plans to overthrow her captors and save the lives of many others doomed to the same endless cycle.

Directed by the single-monikered Raphaello, whose previous films Bloodbath: The Motion Picture and

MobMovieCon and SopranosCon to Have a Sit-Down in Atlantic City

MobMovieCon and SopranosCon to Have a Sit-Down in Atlantic City
It’s time for the punks to meet the godfathers. The creators of SopranosCon merged with MobMovieCon for a family celebration. From July 23 to July 25, Harrah’s Resort & Casino in Atlantic City will house the boardwalk’s biggest gangster gathering since Nucky Johnson hosted the mob’s Atlantic City Conference in 1929.

Al Capone will not be coming though,” VirtualCons CEO Michael Mota tells Den of Geek. “Those were the mobsters. I would say this would be the biggest gathering of mobster wannabes.” The Sopranos fan convention has come a long way since it was dreamed up by three gangster movie aficionados from New York, Maryland, and Rhode Island. The 2019 SopranosCon drew thousands of fans from as far as The Netherlands and the United Kingdom to the Meadowlands Exposition Center in Secaucus. A planned expansion to MobMovieCon had to be pushed back because of the pandemic, but the organizers introduced VirtualCons
