When it comes to predicting the Oscars, one of the major hurdles early in the season is figuring out in which categories some of the actors will be competing. Someone like Christoph Waltz in Django Unchained is more of a co-lead performance, but it’s on the studio to decide where to campaign for the actor, and on the Academy to either accept or re-categorize. In the case of Waltz and Django, he was submitted for Best Supporting Actor …

‘Apostle’: Gareth Evans Left ‘The Raid’ Behind to Imagine a Sinister Cult, Inspired by British Folk Horror and Caravaggio

‘Apostle’: Gareth Evans Left ‘The Raid’ Behind to Imagine a Sinister Cult, Inspired by British Folk Horror and Caravaggio
[Editor’s note: The following contains spoilers for “Apostle”]

Welsh director Gareth Evans burst onto the scene in 2011 with his searing action film, “The Raid,” which showcases the traditional Indonesian martial art Pencak Silat. The film was a huge hit, leading to a 2014 sequel, “The Raid 2,” and both films cemented Evans’ place in action film history. But with his latest feature film, “Apostle,” Evans left martial arts behind for horror: in 1905, Thomas Richardson (Dan Stevens) travels to a remote island in search of his missing sister, who has been kidnapped by a strange cult.

Apostle” isn’t the first time Evans dabbled in the horror genre, nor is it his first take on a cult. In 2013’s “V/H/S 2,” Evans co-directed “Save Haven” with Timo Tjahjanto, which follows a documentary crew who attempt to infiltrate an Indonesian cult, and discover unimaginable horrors in the process. But while “Safe Haven” was a hit with horror fans, Evans

Proving that you can’t kill pure evil, Michael Myers returns once again to pierce fresh victims with an assortment of cutlery in Universal’s “Halloween” reboot. Though this latest entry in the franchise ignores the events of the last nine films, enough references are included throughout it to make several of the sequels well worth revisiting. To help you plan a Myers movie marathon, here’s our ultimate Halloween ranking, from tedious trick to terrifying treat.

11) Halloween: Resurrection (2002)

At times resembling an amateur Halloween fan film that was accidentally released in theaters, the eighth entry in the slasher series finds a blasé Michael Myers stalking a group of fame-seeking college students who’ve agreed to spend a night in his childhood home as part of a ridiculous internet reality show. Clumsily interspersed with low-res video footage shot by the actors themselves, “Halloween: Resurrection” is a suspense-free disaster that wastes

‘At Eternity’s Gate’: Julian Schnabel Explores Van Gogh The Man And The Myth Via Willem Dafoe [Nyff Review]

128 years after his death, Vincent Van Gogh is understood perhaps more as an archetype than a flesh and blood man. While his paintings are widely viewed and celebrated, the mythos of his life – his inner torment, his contemporary neglect, the ear incident – has taken such hold in the popular imagination that even for the majority who care little about painting, Van Gogh is the patron saint of the misunderstood and the misbegotten, for anyone who feels they’re working not for their peers but for future generations.

Horror Icon John Carpenter on the New ‘Halloween’ and What Really Scares Him

You know what's better than getting to talk to one of the biggest genre icons? Getting to talk to that individual about the very successful continuation of the franchise he started. The original Halloween is one of the best horror movies of all time, a movie that spawned nine additional films, none of which managed to capture the same terror and magic of John Carpenter's original - until now. The 1978 film is still the untouchable crown jewel of the series, but with this new Halloween movie, director David Gordon Green crafts a story that honors the original film, …
