Official Trailer for New Year's Night Murder Thriller Film 'Midnighters'

"Is there anything you've done that would make someone come after you?" IFC Midnight has debuted the official trailer for a Hitchcockian thriller titled Midnighters, the feature directorial debut of editor Julius Ramsay (of work on shows like "The Walking Dead", "Battlestar Galactica", "Flashforward"). Midnighters is about a couple in a strained marriage who face the ultimate test after they cover up a terrible crime and find themselves entangled in a Hitchcockian web of deceit and madness on New Year's Eve. The film stars Alex Essoe and Dylan McTee, along with Perla Haney-Jardine, Ward Horton, Andrew Rothenberg, and Joseph Anderson. This looks a bit odd, but it might be creepy & thrilling. The film "offers a layered, enigmatic thriller set in the Gothic backwoods of New England – the perfect place to get away with murder." Here's the official Us trailer (+ poster) for Julius Ramsay's Midnighters, direct from IFC's YouTube: A

Drive-In Dust Offs: Bad Dreams (1988)

Cults and their leaders have always equally repulsed, fascinated, and terrified me. The repulsion and terror are obvious markers for any sane person, but some would rather not have it in their lives at all, thank you very much. This is also a lucid and healthy response. But in horror we look for the cathartic in the carnal; and while Bad Dreams (1988) spends a great deal of effort mining a very similar vein as A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors (1987), it succeeds in carving out its own modest slice in the late ‘80s landscape.

Released stateside in April by Twentieth Century Fox, Bad Dreams made back its $4 million dollar budget opening weekend, but petered out after it pulled in just over $9 million total. A profit, yes, but not the big numbers they were hoping for based on what they thought was a foolproof Elm Street format. Oh, and

Stranger Things: Eleven's Escape From the Upside Down Is Season 2's Laziest Storyline

Warning: this post contains spoilers for the new season of Stranger Things! In the first season finale of Stranger Things, our story with the Demogorgon comes to a shocking conclusion at Hawkins Middle School. Dr. Brenner and the rest of his lackeys finally locate the kids and Eleven, only for the Upside Down's monster to burst out of the wall one final time. Fortunately, our psychic heroine crushes the brains of the bad guys and gets rid of the Demogorgon for good . . . but disappears herself. Listen, we've known for a long time that Eleven survives the ordeal, but her season two entrance is frustrating after a season one finale that almost certainly suggests she's dead. Let's go back. In this finale episode, Eleven exerts a lot of energy. She's already pretty wiped out from locating Mike in the Upside Down. Once the bad guys show up, a small chase ensues.

Star Trek Continues Episode 10: To Boldly Go

  • Cinelinx
Part one of the final episode for the Web’s finest fan-made series came out this week, and as usual, it does not disappoint. As Star Trek Continues warps to its conclusion, long-time Trek fans are treated to a wonderful trip back to the very beginning of the classic series.

The latest episode of Stc, “To Boldly Go” (a homage to the famous opening narrative to Classic Trek and Star Trek: The Next Generation) is a fun trip into the Trek universe that pays homage to “Where No Man Has Gone Before”, the original 1966 pilot episode for Star Trek. (Okay, that was actually the second pilot, the first being “The Cage”, starring Jeffrey Hunter as Captain Pike, but I digress.) It shows the fidelity and affection that the makers of this show have for the source material; which is why they chose to end their series that way Star Trek began.

Busan: Australian Film ‘Pulse’ Is Tale of Triumph Over Adversity

Busan: Australian Film ‘Pulse’ Is Tale of Triumph Over Adversity
U.S.-based sales agent Oration is handling rights to “Pulse,” the Australian fantasy drama that has its international premiere Monday in the Busan Film Festival’s Flash Forward section.

The film is an intensely personal tale about a gay young man with disabilities who changes into the body of a beautiful woman, in order to be loved.

It was written by Daniel Monks, who also has disabilities and who also stars with Caroline Brazier. Three years in the making, the picture was directed by female filmmaker Stevie Cruz-Martin. The pair have previously collaborated on several shorts.

“The film raises questions such as how much our bodies shape who we are, where is the line between compromising for love and changing yourself to be loved, and why we fall in love with the people we fall in love with,” said Monks. “It is a parable for young people, queer people, disabled people
