“The universe the film takes place in seems straight out of Steve Klein photography, and Lars von Trier’s cinema with some dashes of Hitchcock thrown in for good measure, a gothic neon playground in which Theresa’s fears are manifested through the threatening indifference of nature,” Jose Solis said. “Dunst gives a marvelous performance and considering she’s featured in almost every scene, she’s the Alice guiding us in this wonderland.”
Check out the exclusive featurette below and we’re also giving away two Blu-rays.
For you cult film fans, both Death Laid an Egg and Deathdream (aka Dead of Night) get the HD treatment this week, and other notable releases this Tuesday include M.F.A., Rememory, Super Dark Times, Woodshock, and Trailer Trauma 4: Television Trauma.

The Big Sick (Michael Showalter)
From start to finish, The Big Sick, directed by Michael Showalter, works as a lovingly-rendered, cinematic answer to the dinner party question: “So how did you two meet?” Based on comedian Kumail Nanjiani‘s real life (he co-wrote the screenplay with his wife Emily V. Gordon), we meet Kumail (Nanjiani) as he finishes a stand-up set in Chicago. He becomes fast friends with a

Here's the Woodshock trailer and Blu-ray cover art.
“Remember when we used to play in the woods together?” Woodshock begins in dreamy, creepy breathiness.

It’s kind of like having Alice recount her trip down the rabbit hole while coming down from some serious Wonderland substances, but without getting to witness the magical land yourself.
Written and Directed by Kate and Laura Mulleavy
Starring Kirsten Dunst, Joe Cole, Jack Kilmer, Susan Traylor, and Pilou Asbæk
A woman falls deeper into paranoia after taking a deadly drug.
Woodshock is an exercise in sensory filmmaking that rarely stimulates the mind, rendering it quite the boring view. There is certainly talent behind the film’s pair of directors, sisters Kate and Laura Mulleavy (not only are they renowned fashion designers, the siblings also have experience in the cinematic world from handling the costume design on Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan), but they seem unaware of how to generate emotion out of usually compelling circumstances such as grieving and suicide. Also acting as writers on the project, there isn’t much dialogue at all; it’s actually so scarce that it can be difficult to pinpoint how primary characters even relate to one another.
The film is
The corpse isn’t even cold before Theresa begins to break down. Grief always carries the trimmings of psychosis, but this is something else — she’s not just mourning, she’s practically living a Polanski film. And things don’t really get any better for her after she’s responsible for a mix-up at the office
