When Charlie Cotrell (Jack Gore) witnesses his father (Greg Kinnear) being taken over by an alien, he decides to protect his mother and the world from the alien invasion. With more and more of the people around him becoming aliens too though, how long before they take over him too?
On face level The Father Thing is a version of Invasion of the Body Snatchers, but based in a kid’s world. People who are fans of the Faculty will feel right at home with this episode of Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams, sometimes a little too much.

The best of the six entries screened in advance is, oddly enough, labeled the first episode on the screener site but falls to Episode 9 via Amazon. That’s a shame, since viewers would have to make it through the worst of the lot — Episode 7, “The Father Thing” — let alone eight more middling hourlong entries before they reach it. “The Commuter” stars Timothy Spall as an employee at a train station who discovers a hidden city between the stops.

Kicking off 2017 in fine style, M. Night Shyamalan’s comeback thriller hinges on a disturbing, engrossing performance from James McAvoy as a troubled man harbouring multiple personalities in his head. From lisping Harry Potter fan Hedwig to prim Patricia to, eventually, the animalistic, terrifying Beast, McAvoy delivers a masterclass in physical performance and different accents. His Kevin will return in Shyamalan’s Unbreakable sequel, Glass, starring Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson.

Similarly, “Get Out” was marketed as a horror movie and submitted to the Golden Globes as a comedy. It’s a little bit of both, but it’s also a social commentary mixed with sharp observations about racism.
The awards season is filled with movies that are genre-benders, which use the format and structure of classic storytelling, but then upend audience expectations by taking the movie in another direction.
“The Shape of Water” is set in 1962, and director/co-writer Guillermo del Toro uses the conventions of an old monster movie — a mysterious lab, sinister government
Next year, many of the most famous and well-known movie franchises of our times will celebrate their thirtieth anniversaries. Some of these will be marked by remakes hitting the screens, either in the cinemas or through other mediums, such as video games,
It may seem like an odd pairing. Payne is an Oscar-winning auteur known for such salt-of-the-earth comedies as “About Schmidt” and “Nebraska,” films where moments of levity emerge from a kind of hardscrabble realism. Blum, the hugely successful producer behind “The Purge” and “Insidious,” is a mogul of the macabre. But Payne, after seven movies that largely center on middle-aged schnooks, says he’s done with dramatizing the foibles of the pocket-protector set. He’s ready to shake things up.
“I want to do something different,” Payne tells Variety during a recent interview at Viacom’s Times Square headquarters. “How fun would it be to do a horror movie? They’re all the rage right now, and they make a lot of money.”
Before Payne can team up with Blum, however, he’s got a film to release. That’s why he’s flown to New York

Suspecting he is adopted, Billy begins to dig deeper into the mystery of his family, uncovering a secret more horrifying than he could possibly imagine.
Margaret Thatcher once said, “…there’s no such thing as society”. I bring this up not as a means to analyze what she meant by her statement or to discuss the late Prime Minister and the legacy that has been the cause of decades of passionate debate. I honestly just needed a smart-sounding way to start this review.
This rather clumsy opening brings me to the subject of today’s review, Brian Yuzna’s gruesome horror satire that just so happens to be titled Society,
And yet its Aaron Mahnke’s blunt narration and gag-inducing sound effects that make up the best bits of the first three episodes, both of which stem from the series’ origins — and more effective incarnation, being audio storytelling.

After a demanding evening spent bumping and grinding at The Harem Room, a weary young dancer packs up her gear and exits the club to a chorus of catcalls. She responds by whipping out a state-of-the-art shotgun and laying waste to not only to the would-be lotharios but a good section of Hollywood Boulevard. Is this the continuing story of Abel Ferrara’s Ms. 45? No, it’s Jack Sholder’s The Hidden, one of the wittiest B movies of the eighties.
That stripper’s gun-happy rampage is just the latest in a series of increasingly bizarre crimes catapulting the baffled police into a futile game of whack-a-mole; as soon as the cops eliminate one gunman,
