Watch: First Trailer For Netflix Horror Movie The Paramedic

Watch: First Trailer For Netflix Horror Movie The Paramedic
You can tell we’re approaching October when more scary content starts to appear on major services, with the latest offering, Spanish psychological horror The Paramedic, having a trailer and batch of images released.

When you see news about a movie with any kind of medical or sickness connotation to its title or central concept, it’s difficult to not immediately jump to the assumption that it’s a cynical attempt to exploit current world circumstances, such as the hatefully abysmal Corona Zombies. Thankfully, The Paramedic is nothing like that, instead being an insidious tale of paranoia and control.

After a road accident during a call-out, the titular first responder Ángel is confined to a wheelchair, his bitterness and reliance on his partner Vane leading him to suspect she’s cheating on him, resulting in him first stalking her movements and communications, then keeping her prisoner in their apartment, in

Rewind: ‘Kill List’ Review

Rewind: ‘Kill List’ Review
In the first of a new series of Rewind reviews looking back at the career of writer/director Ben Wheatley, Chris takes a look at his 2011 hit, Kill List.

Stars: Neil Maskell, Michael Smiley, MyAnna Buring, Harry Simpson, Emma Fryer, Struan Rodger | Written by Ben Wheatley, Amy Jump | Directed by Ben Wheatley

My initial terror when re-watching Kill List was that I realised it had been almost 10 years since I had seen it in a Cineworld in South West London..!

Kill List starts as a bit of realist, family drama, with our ex-soldier and “hero” Jay (Neil Maskell) out of work. He enjoys playing sword fighting with his beloved son but is under great pressure to get back to work from his wife as their savings dwindle. seemingly haunted by a mission in Kiev, Jay loves his family but is quite possibly suffering from Ptsd. His wife then arranges a little dinner party,

‘In My Room’ With Cam

‘In My Room’ With Cam
Cam delivers an upbeat rendition of her latest single “Classic” as part of Rolling Stone‘s In My Room performance series, presented by Gibson.

The hard-to-pigeonhole singer-songwriter performs the effervescent gem about lasting relationships backed by two guitarists and a drum track. “They don’t make ’em like this anymore,” she sings, wearing a red shirt with “Lady” stitched on the chest. Even without producer Jack Antonoff’s immersive production, it’s a transformative listening experience. She also sings the meditative “Redwood Tree,” another track off her upcoming second album The Otherside,

Doc Corner: 'Rewind' and 'On the Record'

Doc Corner: 'Rewind' and 'On the Record'
by Glenn Dunks

To put one’s own story to film often takes some form of personal courage. To not allow any sort of emotional distance between the traumas and the pains of life and the audience will always be a tough line for many to cross. It is why documentaries are so often labelled as merely grim or depressing and placed in a metaphorical too-hard basket. It’s true that many are indeed an emotional trial of sorts, but to watch survivors speak directly to us is one of the things I most cherish about non-fiction filmmaking.

As I watched and listened to the stories of Sasha Joseph Neulinger, Drew Dixon and others unfold in two new documentaries, Rewind and On the Record, I found myself captivated and angry. Angry that this happened in the first place and angry that these films aren’t being spoken about as important works of film.

Annette Bening’s Family Drama ‘Hope Gap’ Debuts; Coming-Of-Age Tale ‘Clementine’ Brings The Thrills – Specialty Streaming Preview
Annette Bening, Bill Nighy and Josh O’ Connor are ready to deal with some serious family issues in the drama Hope Gap. Screen Media Ventures and Roadside Attractions released the film today on digital platforms after having to pivot from their originally planned March 5 theatrical release due to the pandemic –because the show must go on.

Directed by Oscar-nominated screenwriter William Nicholson and based on his Tony Award-nominated play, The Retreat From Moscow, Hope Gap made its world premiere at the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival before hitting the festival circuit.

Hope Gap follows the lives of Grace (Bening) and Edward (Nighy), who have been married for 29 years, as they navigate through stages of shock, disbelief and anger, to a place of hope. They live in a small seaside town near a cove under the cliffs called Hope Gap — hence the title of the film. When their son Jamie (O’Connor

‘Rewind’ Film Review: Family Tale of Sexual Abuse Is Wrenching and Essential

‘Rewind’ Film Review: Family Tale of Sexual Abuse Is Wrenching and Essential
Early in the documentary “Rewind,” we learn that director Sasha Joseph Neulinger’s father, Henry Nevison, has an extensive collection of other people’s home movies – shelves stacked with film canisters that show strangers mugging for the camera, acting silly and doing their best to look very happy.

And then the film turns to Neulinger’s own home movies, and shows us the lies and the horror that can lie beneath those forced smiles and that awkward jollity.

The secrets that emerge, not so much in those home movies as in the recollections of the people in them, are the dark history of a family wracked, and wrecked, by generations of sexual abuse. Make no mistake, “Rewind” is hard to watch. It might also be essential.

Rewind Review: A Filmmaker Takes a Personal Look into His Painful Past

Rewind Review: A Filmmaker Takes a Personal Look into His Painful Past
When films like Rewind are presented as exercises to reconstruct circumstances surrounding the sexual abuse its filmmaker endured, you can assume the journey will deal with unearthing previously unknown details about what happened through repressed memories. Despite the liberal use of home videos taken by director and subject Sasha Joseph Neulinger’s father to relive this harrowing past, however, his motivations are very different. Sasha actually remembers everything that occurred: the pain, sorrow, and suicidal thoughts. He can look at himself on-screen and know whether he was still a happy child pre-abuse or if his life had already been forever changed. His purpose of going back is conversely about documenting the process of confronting what happened. It’s about ensuring today’s victims receive the respect they deserve regardless of age.

While there aren’t really any secrets for Sasha to unearth for his personal edification, however, that doesn’t

Stream of the Day: ‘Colossal’ Is a Monster Movie That Understands Our Confusing Times
With readers turning to their home viewing options more than ever, this daily feature provides one new movie each day worth checking out on a major streaming platform.

Monster movies have endured in part because they provide a template for tapping into the anxieties of the moment. “Godzilla: King of the Monsters” may not have mustered profound social commentary, but giant hideous beasts wreaking havoc on civilization tap into deep-seated existential dread on autopilot. “Kong: Skull Island” took the mounting ineptitude of American military to task. And the latest version of “The Invisible Man” would have been jarring if it didn’t work in some kind of #MeToo component.

Examining the Past in Sasha Joseph Neulinger's Doc 'Rewind' Trailer
"They tried every which way to confuse you." Grizzly Creek Films + Step 1 Films have debuted the official trailer for an acclaimed documentary titled Rewind, made by filmmaker Sasha Joseph Neulinger. This initially premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival last year, and also played at the London Film Festival in the fall. In his candid personal memoir, Sasha Joseph Neulinger revisits his childhood and the events that tore apart his seemingly-perfect world. Digging through the vast collection of his father's home videos that were made throughout his youth, he reconstructs the unthinkable story of his boyhood and exposes vile abuse passed through generations. As the quotes in this trailer state, this looks like an incredibly courageous and "staggering" film that is an extremely personal story showing it is possible to make some sense of your past.

The Goonies Re-Enactment TV Show Is Happening at Fox with Original Director
A remake of The Goonies is in the works... well, sort of. According to a new report, Fox has placed in a pilot order for a potential television series focusing on a substitute teacher and three students creating an amateur remake of the beloved '80s movie. Greg Mottola (Superbad) is executive producing the project and will direct the pilot, and Sarah Watson (The Bold Type) has also signed on to write the script. Also on board to executive produce are Gail Berman, Lauren Shuler Donner, Richard Donner, and Amblin's Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank.

The Goonies Re-Enactment TV Show is currently untitled. The drama series sounds a bit like School of Rock meets Be Kind, Rewind. According to the show's formal logline, the drama would specifically follow Stella Cooper, a woman "carrying a heavy secret" who takes up work as a substitute teacher when she returns to her hometown from New York.

‘Paradise Hills’ Review: A Beautifully-Built World Crumbles with Jumbled Plotting

A futuristic take on class warfare, Alice Waddington’s Paradise Hills is a compellingly strange, visually daring, but ultimately narratively empty directorial debut. Led by Emma Roberts, Awkwafina, and Milla Jovovich, the film features a unique mixture of costume and set designs (think Burton’s Alice in Wonderland meets The Prisoner) yet its intriguing set-up quickly runs aground with stilted dialogue and awkward plotting, spending much time on its cotton-candy aesthetic and not enough on sorting out its jumbled themes.

Taking place in a somewhat distant future, we begin with Roberts’ Uma seemingly dressed as an extra from the Capitol scenes in The Hunger Games, in full camp mode at an upper-class party before quickly flashing back to two months earlier, as she wakes to find herself in an island retreat, run by The Duchess. Sent there by her family who wants her to abandon her poor lover and marry a more appropriately wealthy suitor,

It's been over a week since I first saw Jon Mikel Caballero's fantastical relationship drama, The Incredible Shrinking Wknd at Fantasia and I just cannot shake it. An incredible fantasy film that blends elements of Groundhog Day and Timecrimes into a micro level investigation of a love affair gone south that will find an empathetic audience absolutely riveted by its profound simplicity. A group of six friends, three couples, head out into the wilderness near an old munitions factory for a relaxing weekend when something strange happens. Alba (Iria del Río) and her boyfriend of several years, Pablo (Adam Quintero), seem to be having a fine time until a relatively sudden argument breaks out regarding their differing outlooks on life and Pablo breaks up with...
