New to Streaming: ‘Woodshock,’ ‘The Big Sick,’ ‘Heart of a Dog,’ and More

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit platforms. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

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

Bushwick movie review: don’t mess with Brooklyn

MaryAnn’s quick take… There’s fierce tension in this breathless urban survival thriller as anarchy comes to New York streets. Terrific, innovative low-budget action filmmaking. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

College student Lucy (Brittany Snow: Pitch Perfect 2) comes up out of the New York City subway to find that all hell has broken loose: there’s gunfire and explosions everywhere, fires burning, mysterious troopers — terrorists? — in black rounding up residents (or killing them), no signs of NYPD or any other legitimate authorities. Terrified, baffled, and on the verge of becoming a victim of the sudden lawlessness, Lucy teams up with reluctant veteran Stupe (Dave Bautista: Blade Runner 2049) as they both attempt to get to safety… if such a place exists. The less you know about Bushwick (named for Lucy and Stupe’s working-class

Sylvester Stallone Proves Eating Pizza Is a ‘Pretty Good Habit’ with His Ripped Body
Who said eating pizza was a bad thing?

Sylvester Stallone sung the praises of everyone’s favorite food in an Instagram post on Wednesday.

“With my good friend Richie Palmer who owns the famous Mulberry Street Pizza Restaurants, In Los Angeles and Beverly Hills,” Stallone, 70, wrote. “Great food! This is an example that eating his pizza is a pretty good habit!”

The Creed actor works hard for the body he has, even joining his daughter Sophia recently for pilates and being “stunned” by the brutal workout.

“I gotta admit that was brutal,” the actor said in a video on Instagram,

Blu-ray Review – The Driller Killer (1979)

The Driller Killer, 1979.

Directed by Abel Ferrara.

Starring Abel Ferrara, Carolyn Marz, Baybi Day, Harry Schultz, Alan Wynroth.

Synopsis:

A struggling artist goes insane and takes to the streets of New York armed with a drill and the desire to kill.

One of the more notorious movies to have ruffled the feathers of Mary Whitehouse and her cronies during the video nasties era of the early 1980s, Abel Ferrara’s The Driller Killer makes it to UK Blu-ray thanks to Arrow Video in a rather splendid looking dual-format Steelbook that features the classic poster art that gives away one of the key scenes in the film (which was one of the reasons it upset so many authority figures back in the day) and is also very misleading when it comes to the tone and overall content of the movie.

Sylvester Stallone will play an ageing ex-con intent on revenge, in a new film from Cold In July director Jim Mickle.

Jim Mickle will direct Sylvester Stallone in a new, thus-far untitled thriller for Stx Entertainment. Stallone announced the deal with the 20-month-old film company at the Las Vegas CinemaCon 2016 in April.

In the new movie, Stallone will play an aging ex-con who has been estranged from his family. He hears about his son’s death and has to protect what family he has left.

The screenplay for the project, which was called Godforsaken at the convention announcement, was written by Daniel Casey.

Jim Mickle directed Mulberry Street, We Are What We Are, Stake Land and Cold in July. He is currently working on an adaptation of The Esperanza Fire for Legendary films. He also created the series Hap And Leonard with Nick Damici for SundanceTV and was the showrunner for season one of the show.

The new film will be produced by Lawrence Grey under his Grey Matter banner, and will be overseen by Ben Everard.

Further casting is reportedly underway, and we'll pass on more information as we get it.

Outrage Watch: Beyonce's unretouched photos instigate a Beygency
Welcome to the February 18, 2015 edition of Outrage Watch, HitFix's daily rundown of all the things folks are peeved about in entertainment. Today's top story: another Beygency is upon us. A round of unretouched photos of the megastar from a recent L'Oreal photo shoot were leaked by long-running fansite Beyonce World to condemnation from her most passionate fans, one of whom tweeted: "I seriously wanna bash the person that photoshopped those pics fucking face in! Like it's to the point where enough is enough!" Couldn't have said it better! The pics have since been deleted by the site, meaning they're now completely erased forever and no one can ever see them again. [Jezebel] Want more? There's plenty of indignation to go around.

Exclusive Interview with Nick Damici for ‘Late Phases’

Werewolves should never mess with a blind Vietnam veteran.

From Dark Sky Films, director Adrian Garcia Bogliano (“The ABCs of Death”) presents a different kind of werewolf movie that takes place in a retirement community.

Here’s the synopsis:

Crescent Bay is not the ideal place to spend one's golden years, especially since the once-idyllic retirement community has been beset by a series of deadly animal attacks from the ominous forest surrounding it. When grizzled war veteran Ambrose McKinley (Nick Damici) is forced into moving there by his yuppie son Will (Ethan Embry), the residents immediately take offense to Ambrose's abrasive personality. But that take-no-prisoners attitude may be just what Ambrose needs to survive as it becomes clear that the attacks are being caused by creatures that are neither animal nor man, and that the tight-knit community of Crescent Bay is hiding something truly sinister in its midst...

The Madness: Automatons Week #1

So there’s this horror movie competition that takes place on Facebook every October, and this is my first year participating. I’m still a little lost, so bear with me. I have watched more than this, but these are the movies I watched during the week of Oct 4th – October 11th, the first official week of The Madness. I hope I can squeeze some more in this week, but having a 4 year old makes that tough to do. I think I had a pretty good week considering all obstacles. Plus, I saw some great stuff this week. Some revisits that I try to do annually, as well as some new movies, not released to theaters yet.

Late Phases (2014) – 2 pts

Director: Adrián García Bogliano

Easily misunderstood, but still solid. We don’t get much in the way of werewolf horror, so it’s good to support it when we do.

Watch: First Clip For Abel Ferrara's ‘Pasolini’ Starring Willem Dafoe, Plus New Photos, Director's Statement & More

"We’re coming from a point of a lot of respect. We dig [Pasolini's] work, we dig everything about him. He’s essential viewing. His death, in 1975, was also kind of a very outrageous moment, all the bullshit surrounding, the killing. When it comes down to it, we were probably gearing up to make this movie from the moment we heard he was dead."—Abel Ferrara The last few years have not been kind to Abel Ferrara’s career if you've taken a close look, but the filmmaker has soldiered on regardless. Starting around 2007, films like "Go Go Tales" "Mulberry St," "Napoli, Napoli, Napoli" and "Chelsea on the Rocks" either failed to receive North American distribution or what roll out plan was in place was rather minuscule (and good luck finding a copy of 2005’s “Mary” on DVD or VOD as well).

Jim Mickle interview: Cold In July, thrillers, Argento

We talk to director Jim Mickle about his latest film Cold In July, the secret of suspense and his influences, from the Coens to Argento...

Interview

Where Hollywood appears to have largely abandoned the thriller genre in favour of ever bigger action adventures and sequels, indie filmmakers have stepped in to fill the breach. Earlier this year saw the release of Jeremy Saulnier's quirky low-budget genre piece Blue Ruin - a satisfyingly grisly thriller with a great everyman performance from Macon Blair.

This Friday sees the UK release of Cold In July, the latest film from director Jim Mickle. It stars Dexter's Michael C Hall as Richard, an ordinary family man thrown into a wild and unpredictable criminal underworld after shooting a mysterious intruder in his living room one night.

Adapted from Joe Landsdale's novel of the same name, Cold In July initially slips into the southern neo-noir subgenre,

Review: Atmosphere, Suspense Line Jim Mickle's Intense 'Cold in July'

A strange noise in the middle of the night awakens a young couple. The husband, Richard Dane, goes to the closet, opens it, and quietly begins to load his gun. He begins searching the house, walking down the dark hallway towards the living room. Suddenly, a beam from a flashlight shines against the far wall, a light that is coming from within the house. Richard freezes, unable to take in a breath. Panicked. This is the first of many moments that generate a veritable intensity throughout Cold in July, powerful adaptation of the Joe R. Lonsdale crime-thriller novel from We Are What We Are director Jim Mickle. Read more below! There is always something of interest at the heart of a Jim Mickle film. Even his feature debut, the "were-rat" gorefest Mulberry St. had so much more going on under the hood than it's premise implied. Mickle and writing partner

Cold In July – The Review

“Returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars.” - Martin Luther King Jr.

They say the stars shine bright during a clear Texas night sky. But aside from the occasional neon glow in Jim Mickle’s new film Cold In July, there’s not much light in this southern-fried revenge-thriller about fathers, sons, and the violence that awaits them in the night.

When a Texas family man (Michael C. Hall) accidentally shoots an intruder breaking into his home one night, a series of sinister events are triggered involving the dead boy’s father (Sam Shepard), a local sheriff (Nick Damici), and a flashy private investigator (Don Johnson). One boy’s death takes everyone on a twisted path of murder, regret, and heartache.

Cold In July, adapted by Jim Mickle and Nick Damici from a novel by Joe R. Lansdale, is one of

Cannes 2014: 'Cold in July' review

  • CineVue
★★☆☆☆It seems fitting that the UK rebirth of Icon Film Distribution - whose final release before an impromptu hiatus was Nicolas Winding Refn's Drive (2011) - should continue with another synth-heavy eighties throwback. From director Jim Mickle, who's proved himself such an able genre chameleon with past offerings Mulberry St, Stake Land and a superior English-language We Are What We Are remake, Cold In July (2014) sees the indie filmmaker return to the American south for a grisly, often tongue-in-cheek murderous rampage. Based on the Joe R. Lansdale pulp novel and screening at Cannes, Mickle's latest is indebted to the Carpenters and Coens of this world, whilst offering little that's new.

We Are What We Are (2013) Movie Review #2

Jim Mickle has slowly but surely been establishing himself as one of the most interesting directors in contemporary Us horror, from his rat zombie 2006 debut “Mulberry St” to his acclaimed 2010 apocalyptic vampire tale “Stake Land”. As a result, the announcement that his latest work would be a remake of Jorge Michel Grau’s Mexican cannibal family saga “We Are What We Are” came as a bit of a surprise, the on-going remake trend long having outstayed its welcome with genre fans and critics. Thankfully, the film is that rare thing indeed, a remake which stays true to the basics and themes of its source material, while adapting it to a different culture and landscape, offering something new and thoughtfully constructed in the process. Having gone down well on the festival circuit, the film arrives in the UK via Entertainment One at the end of February, the DVD release coming with

Celebrating the Tasty, Tasty Human: Five Cannibal Film Favorites

The American remake of We Are What We Are (review) hits VOD on December 17, and while the Mexican thriller of the same name is superior, Jim Mickle’s take on ritualistic cannibalism is a damned fine film in its own right and certainly one of the better cannibal-centric movies to come out recently.

Making a list of the “best” cannibal movies out there is a fool’s errand, if only because it invariably leads to someone saying I have no idea what I’m talking about because I left this film or that film off the list, prompting me to question everything I know and love. You proud of yourself now?

Therefore, instead of a “Best Cannibal Films” list, I’m treating you to a list of my favorite cannibal-centric movies. And no, Cannibal Holocaust is not on the list ‘cause that movie is gross and made me leave the room twice while watching it.
