In Tone-Deaf, millennial Olive decides to take a vacation for herself by renting a weekend stay in a rural mansion, far away from her city life troubles. Unfortunately, she doesn't realize the widowed homeowner Harvey (Robert Patrick) is suffering from dementia, resulting in a homicidal psychosis. Determined to see what it feels like to kill someone,

I mean, it’s a new horror movie from Jordan Peele featuring a stellar cast oozing with raw talent. What more could I possibly need?
Festival Synopsis: An original nightmare from Oscar-winner Jordan Peele (Get Out), starring Lupita Nyong’o and Winston Duke,

For this year’s Escape Halloween celebration, Insomniac really amped up their overall efforts throughout the entire Nos Events Center.
As someone who attends a variety of electronic festivals throughout the year, Escape: Psycho Circus is one of the best, and their Escape Asylum Halloween maze is one of the most enjoyable attractions I’ve ever experienced. The fact that they put you into a straitjacket upon entry only adds to the terror and hysteria you experience as you make your way through the haunt’s 32,000 square feet of creepy shocks and jolts.
Here’s a look at the impressively awesome musical lineup for the eighth annual Escape: Psycho Circus,
Production has begun on “Tone Deaf,” which is the first film in the yearly slate of elevated suspense-thriller genre films from Circle of Confusion (producers of “The Walking Dead”), Lightning Entertainment and Hindsight Media.
Crew portrays a woman who leaves for a a quiet weekend in the country after losing her job and imploding her latest dysfunctional relationship. She rents a country house from an old-fashioned widower, played by Patrick, who’s struggling to hide his psychopathic tendencies. Soon, two generations collide with terrifying results in this home invasion horror film that is also a darkly comedic critique of the bizarre cultural and political climate.
Producers are Circle of Confusion’s Lawrence Mattis, Brad Mendelsohn and Matt Smith; along with Brion Hambel and Paul Jensen of Best Medicine Productions. Executive producers are Lightning
Highlights include: World Premieres!
Grimmfest is proud to be presenting the world premiere of the remarkable and utterly unique Borley Rectory. Using an elaborate mixture of live action, stills, paintings, and model work, it’s an immersive, eerily atmospheric, and elegantly retro-styled exploration of the Most Haunted House in Britain. Over six years in the making, it’s a real labor of love for its creator, Ashley Thorpe. Featuring a score by Ex-Banshee Steve Severin,
Seemingly inhabiting the same universe as Cheap Thrills, the film he co-wrote with David Chirchirillo, 68 Kill, Trent Haaga’s second feature as director (his first being Chop) is a similar deep-dive into the fringes of American society – an underbelly that walks the fine line between morality and depravity. A world where people will do anything for money. Or so it would seem.
Trailer-dwelling, sewage-pumping Chip (Matthew Gray Gubler) may not lead the most glamorous life, but he’s got one thing going for him: he’s head over heels infatuated with his girlfriend Liza (AnnaLynne McCord). He’s more than willing to overlook her wild streak, the fact that she’s hooking up with their landlord and her rather extreme mood swings. So when she proposes a plot to steal $68,000, he goes along with the plan.
Hollywood and society is obsessed with fitting everything, including movies, into boxes. This sadly means that if a film doesn’t easily slot into one of those boxes, most distributors / studios pass on it. Thankfully though there are occasionally people out there that take the risk on what is different and our reward is films such as 68 Kill. The film is comprised with elements of thriller, black comedy, road movie, action, horror, crime and romance stitched together, the result a break-neck pace, insane thrill ride. It might not fit into a neat little box, but it will entertain and enthral all who watch it.
68 Kill Review
Matthew Gray Gubler (Criminal Minds) stars as 68 Kill‘s hapless hero, Chip. Chip is a blue collar worker,
With a screenplay based on Bryan Smith’s book of the same name, 68 Kill introduces us to Chip (Matthew Gray Gubler), a trailer-dwelling nice guy who pumps sewage for a living and is completely infatuated with his out-of-control girlfriend, Liza (AnnaLynne McCord
Decay focuses on a middle-aged grounds keeper at a local theme park (played by Rob Zabrecky) that suffers from a debilitating case of Ocd. One day, his daily routine is disrupted by a surprise visitor in his basement: a beautiful young woman who, through a jarring turn of events, ends up dead. Jonathan panics and chooses not to report the dead girl. Instead, he invites her to dinner. Jonathan is happy to have a friend, until the police start closing in, and his mind, and the body of the girl, begins to decay.
Opening with a quote taken from a thousand internet memes is an odd way to start a horror movie. But then Decay is odd all over – odd characters, odd situations and an oddly beautiful appearance. And oddly,
And what about horror on TV?
Arrival: Denis Villeneuve's Arrival is a beautiful take on language and how communication (or the lack of proper communication) can either doom or ensure our survival as human beings on this planet. The way Villeneuve tells a story is the perfect fit for a film like Arrival because its focus is small but the ideas are big, much like his previous works, Enemy, Sicario, and Prisoners.
My hope is that the takeaway from Arrival
Humor pushes through vile, narcissistic, masochistic appropriations of false appearances, making Bates’ previous films look like kiddie content in comparison. No character bothers to filter their intentions, berating one another with the most toxic, hurtful dialogue that’ll have you laughing your way to Hell. Bates writes a painful arc that’s constantly torturing those caught in their own emotional inferno, holding onto signature quirks despite his most serious vision yet. It’s a lit fuse that never stops burning, until humanity is nothing but blown-away dream.
Adrian Grenier stars as Owen, whose life is a catastrophic disaster.
