First Trailer for Post-Apocalyptic Survival Thriller 'What Still Remains'

People become their own kind of monster. Spotlight Pictures has released the first trailer for the indie post-apocalyptic thriller titled What Still Remains, from writer/director Josh Mendoza.

Lulu Antariksa stars a woman struggling to survive in a world long-since destroyed by disease.

‘A Cat Named Leonard’ VOD Review

Stars: Ralph Macchio, Gina Gershon, David Zayas, Paul Sorvino, Sean Young, Jeff Kober | Written and Directed by Anthony Tarsitano

Wow, Ralph freaking Macchio… I’ve got to admit, it’s been some time since I saw Daniel Larusso in a movie. So of course I was gonna sit down and watch this flick! But what I did not expect was to find a whole cast of actors that maybe never set the world on fire but I have a certain affinity for.
