October Horrors 2018 Day 14 – Get Out (2017)

Get Out, 2017.

Directed by Jordan Peele.

Starring Daniel Kaluuya, Allison Williams, Bradley Whitford, Caleb Landry Jones, Catherine Keener, Lil Rel Howery, Betty Gabriel, Marcus Hendereson, Lakeith Stanfield, and Stephen Root.

Synopsis:

Chris, a young black photographer, is anxious about meeting the parents of his white girlfriend Rose, worried about the reception he will receive, unaware of the true horror that the meeting will bring.

Since the first ceremony in 1927, the Academy Awards have only ever nominated 6 horror films for Best Picture, with only The Silence of the Lambs (which I reviewed last year) taking home the top prize. This demonstrates that despite horror films enjoying massive critical praise they still tend to get ignored when Oscar season comes around.

That all seemed to change in 2017 with the release of the subject of today’s review. It’s a film that not only broke the cycle of neglect by receiving four

Biff Review: ‘Friday’s Child’ Finds Tye Sheridan Returning to a Malickian World of Poetic Imagery

The only thing worse than never getting your happy ending is having it within grasp and realizing you cannot accept it. To see salvation and turn around knowing it would be a lie is the type of heartbreaking choice we often have to make in order to keep on going. It’s the decision that separates man from monster: an admission of remorse, guilt, and regret. Our actions cause ripples that affect countless others we haven’t met yet or never will and while that truth allows some to sleep at night, the rest wonder what nightmares the collateral damage of their deeds endure as a result. You could say that the only thing separating those two groups is love. Knowing love is to understand its power and its pain.

This idea is at the core of A.J. Edwards’ Friday’s Child and his lead character Richie (Tye Sheridan). Here

Jason Mitchell finds himself in ‘Whitesville’ in trailer for Tyrel

Magnolia Pictures has released a poster and trailer for the upcoming drama Tyrel. Written and directed by Sebastian Silva, the film stars Jason Mitchell, Christopher Abbott, Michael Cera, Caleb Landry Jones, and Ann Dowd; take a look here…

Tyrel follows Tyler, who joins his friend on a trip to the Catskills for a weekend birthday party with several people he doesn’t know. As soon as they get there, it’s clear that (1) he’s the only black guy, and (2) it’s going to be a weekend of heavy drinking. Although Tyler is welcomed, he can’t help but feel uneasy in “Whitesville.” The combination of all the testosterone and alcohol starts to get out of hand, and Tyler’s precarious situation starts to feel like a nightmare.

Tyrel is set for release on December 5th.

‘Tyrel’ Trailer: Jason Mitchell Needs to Get Out in Harrowing Race Relations Drama

Jordan Peele’s Get Out was brilliant in its satirical take on race relations in today’s America, but another Sundance feature proved to be even more harrowing in its realistic depiction of how subtle racism can play out. Sebastián Silva’s latest film Tyrel follows Jason Mitchell’s character Tyler placed in a testosterone-heavy, white man-filled weekend and the anxiety-inducing isolation he’s faced with. Ahead of a December release, the first trailer has now arrived.

I said in my review, “Like a lucid nightmare where no one can feel your alienation no matter how loud you scream out, these small moments boil to a suffocating climax that never explodes, making Tyrel a startling cogent drama about race relations in today’s America. For Tyler, even next to one of his best friends, there’s no promise he’ll ever feel fully comfortable. I can think of no more petrifying,

"Never trust the white man." Magnolia Pictures has debuted the first official trailer for an indie drama titled Tyrel, the latest feature from Chilean filmmaker Sebastián Silva. This premiered at the Sundance Film Festival this year, and it also played at the Seattle and Sydney Film Festivals. The film stars Jason Mitchell as a guy named Tyler, who joins one of his friends for a party at a cabin in the woods.

Testosterone and alcohol start to mix as the weekend turns wild and Tyler’s world starts to become a nightmare.

Karlovy Vary Review: ‘To the Night’ is an Unrelenting Showcase for Caleb Landry Jones

If you, as I, are the type to presume that a “dramaturgical assistant” is some form of midlevel job in a hospital’s oncology department you might be startled to see that none other than the great Michael Haneke is credited on the promotional material of To The Night–an unrelenting new work from filmmaker Peter Brunner–as being that very thing.

We are, naturally, being rather facetious here. The film in question, which follows an artist/arsonist’s (artsonist’s?) creative attempts to get over the horrific loss of his family–who perished in a fire from which he himself was the lone survivor–is in fact the third feature film from Brunner, a 35-year-old Austrian director who was, as it turns out, a student of Haneke’s at the Vienna Film Academy. If one’s old professor happens to have two Palme d’Ors and an Oscar lying around,

Caleb Landry Jones On the Genius of David Lynch, Why He Knew ‘Get Out’ Would Be a Hit, and Never Regretting ‘X-Men’

Caleb Landry Jones On the Genius of David Lynch, Why He Knew ‘Get Out’ Would Be a Hit, and Never Regretting ‘X-Men’
Caleb Landry Jones would like you to know he’s not a tortured artist. The confusion is understandable: A decade into his career, the Texas native has been the guy selling viruses for fun and profit (“Antiviral”), the homeless heroin addict (“Heaven Knows What”), a ruined soldier (“Queen and Country”), the even-creepier son in a racist family (“Get Out”), and the dude who gets thrown out a window by Sam Rockwell in “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.” To be fair, he also made a 2010 appearance on the Nickelodeon show “Victorious,” in which he played “Adorable Guy.”

Those characters, however, are not Jones.

“I think people want to put that on [me], because it’s easier. I don’t know, but maybe there is a bit of it,” Jones told IndieWire when asked about the perception that he’s that kind of dude in real life. “I think it’s easy for people to do that,

A childhood tragedy consumes a young Brooklyn artist in To the Night, the English-language debut from Austrian musician and semi-experimental director Peter Brunner (Those Who Fall Have Wings).

Caleb Landry Jones on ‘Using Film as Art,’ Emotionally Taxing ‘To the Night’ Role
Caleb Landry Jones’ role in “To the Night,” Austrian writer-director Peter Brunner’s competition entry at the Karlovy Vary Film Festival, caused the actor no shortage of ups and downs.

The energetic 28-year-old Texan, who has taken on a wide range of roles with directors including David Lynch, the Coen brothers, Martin McDonagh and Sean Baker, admits the part of Norman was particularly taxing.

“Yeah, I can cry a lot,” Jones says, laughing. “After making the movie it wasn’t too hard to be in touch with the emotions – they were all really surface level for about a good half a year.”

He maintains that he never quite lost himself in the madness of his character, but admits “there were times I was glad we didn’t do another take afterward. I was exhausted, I was tired most of the time. But then this was good.”
