Backwater brutality highlights the new Swamp Thing trailer

Featuring a decidedly-unheroic or grandiose atmosphere, DC has unveiled a proper look at its upcoming Swamp Thing series, produced by James Wan. It actually looks... really quite good! At least, it strikes me as a really fai...

Gravity Falls writer creating adult animated show for Netflix

Leonardo DiCaprio and Guillermo del Toro working together. I'll be honest I didn't see that coming.  Leonardo DiCaprio is currently in talks to star in Del Toro's newest film, a remake of Nightmare Alley. Nightmare Alley ...

Review: Avengers: Endgame

"Avengers assemble" is a stupid line. Actually, it's a stupid line when spoken out loud. In comics it's a great line. You've got the alliteration of the two As lining up in print. It rolls across the eyes when read and you can do some great...

Review: Under the Silver Lake

The fixation with Los Angeles in a lot of films shouldn’t really come as much of a shock. In a city that manufactures dreams and drama, there’s got to be some stories worth telling, right? Hell of an understatement there, van de...

The Cage will continue to unleash his rage this August, as RLJE has announced they'll be releasing his mobster revenge flick A Score to Settle this summer. This is the same pairing that brought us Mandy, so it has to be good, right?

Negative Glass reviews made M. Night Shyamalan cry

Ah, remember Glass? I wasn't too big a fan of it, as you can tell from my review of the film for this very website. Apparently, I contributed to writer-director M. Night Shyamalan getting quite upset, because the filmmaker recently adm...

Tigers Are Not Afraid is coming to Shudder, please watch it

Tigers Are Not Afraid is the best thing I saw at Fantasia last year, and I haven't stopped thinking about it since. Its decayed Gothic beauty, the use of a cartel as its supernatural force, its monkey's paw twist on the power of wishes, and...

Mark Hamill says three measly words in Child's Play trailer

"Good night, Andy." That's it. That's all we get out of Mark Hamill (at the very end of the trailer, of course) after this stupidly long succession of teases following the announcement that he would be voicing the serial-killing doll for t...

The 2019 Cannes Film Festival announces its lineup

Cannes is one of, if not the most-esteemed film festivals in the modern circuit, hosting the premieres of the hottest, most-abstract, "I-don't-get-it-but-everyone-else-loves-it" films and filmmakers in the medium. For its 72nd incarnation, ...

Swamp Thing trailer debuts as the production shuts down

When DC Universe was announced less than a year ago, one of the shows that I was looking forward to the most was Swamp Thing. Seeing a horror series about one of the most underrated DC Comics horror icons helmed by horror guru James Wan is...

Star Wars isn't special anymore

Last year around this time, I wrote an article where I said that Star Wars was becoming an oversaturated franchise thanks to Disney milking the franchise for all of the green milk that it's worth. I talked about how Disney was content with ...

Dark Phoenix looks cliched as hell in its final trailer

Fox has unleashed the final trailer for Dark Phoenix and I'm not really sure what to say. Maybe the footage used for the trailer was cut to look cliche, but this is some really sloppy writing. How many stories are we going to get where "go...

The Netflix-produced Witcher series rides this Fall

Do we need a live-action representation of The Witcher? If it's done with good intentions and a passion for the source, then sure, why not? Kids love their medieval violence (what's that game show they all love?) and we certainly never have...
