Review: Relaxer

Nostalgia-baiting is something I'm not too familiar with. I'm not fond of superheroes, and I wasn't alive in the 80's, so I figured myself to be pretty well nostalgia-proof when it comes to the film industry. I can't be manipulated. I can't...

Latest John Wick 3 trailer has more dogs, more murder

The latest trailer for John Wick Chapter 3: Parabellum (because this is a movie that needs such a hoity toity title) has dropped and shows off exactly the sort of absurd action you'd expect from a series that continues to spiral from the f...

Review: Book of Monsters

Book of Monsters is the first Kickstarter funded film I've seen. This one billed itself as the horror movie where YOU could choose the monsters -- a novel enough idea in which backers could choose from six categories: The monsters, a charac...

Review: Starfish

If one thing's going to strike you straight off the bat with Starfish, it's going to be that this movie is perhaps too hip for its own good. You got cassettes, rotary phones, plaid shirts, old movie theater tickets, tea, Victorian-era furni...

DOOM: ANNIHILATION trailer is getting annihilated on YouTube

I think it's safe to say that so far the upcoming video game adaptation, DOOM: ANNIHILATION has opened its own little portal to hell (har har), since at the time of writing it sits at 300 likes to over 3,000 dislikes on YouTube. This is ex...

Nicolas Cage has some weird-ass movies, here's 10 of them

There's no doubt Nicolas Cage has been in some weird stuff, and after Between Worlds it looks like he's just getting weirder and weirder. A glance ahead has him starring in Primal, a movie where a big game hunter (for zoos?) is on a shippin...

Review: Between Worlds

Sometimes a truly weird Nicolas Cage film can slide between the cracks, slip beneath the floorboards, never to be discovered. This is a pitiful shame that needs to be avoided at all costs. Between Worlds recently released on DVD and has bee...

Review: The House

Watching The House reminded me of college, of the days when filmmakers were producing slick but low budget horror shorts for YouTube in the hopes that these efforts would open the door to recognition and funding to make feature films. Every...

Review: The Cannibal Club

The Cannibal Club has a strong opening that blends convention and originality with something of a sinister smirk. Otavio (Tavinho Teixeira) and Gilda (Ana Luiza Rios) are a wealthy married couple in Brazil. Otavio owns a security firm and l...

AMC's Stubs A-List service boasts over 700,000 subscribers

Here's some actually good news about a theater subscription service! AMC's rival to MoviePass (though the idea of MoviePass rivaling anything at this point is a bit absurd), known as Stubs A-List, has been chugging along at a steady clip si...

The 2018 Golden Cages: Best Screenplay

Welcome one and all to Flixist's new end of the year awards program, the Golden Cages! With Hollywood becoming increasingly out of touch with what the people like, we at Flixist have taken it upon ourselves to deliver the fair, balance...

Review: 2050

"I don't make pizza," Dean Cain says alone in a warehouse next to the disembodied bust of a mannequin. He smiles and bites into an inexplicable apple. In a movie rife with lonely, delusional men, he might be the loneliest and most delusiona...

Starfish trailer catches the eye with surreal wonder

My favorite animal as a child was a wolf, because I was a little boy, and wolves are objectively the coolest thing a little boy could like. As an adult I still find them very rad, and films featuring wolves (or weird deer) tick up about ei...

Dean Cain sells sex robots in trailer for 2050

If someone were going to sell me a sex robot, I'd hope it would be Dean Cain. Like any good Silicon Valley entrepreneur, he has a palpably greasy smarminess, but you kind of like it. That's sort of how I feel about all of 2050 from this tr...

Review: The Amityville Murders

How do you go about making a movie that's at once a based-on-a-true-story exploration of a murder mystery that most people have heard in one version or another, and also a cash-grab prequel to a horror classic that's nearing its fortieth an...

Tommy Wiseau teases Big Shark as his next directing effort

Tommy Wiseau, director and star of the cult classic The Room is back in the driver's seat after what I would declare was much too long an absence. If only he made a few more movies before being "discovered" by bad movie hounds for his biza...

Us Nightmare trailer lives up to its name

It's a little weird to be so early into the year and already have a pretty dead-on idea of what the best horror movie of the year will be. Jordan Peele's latest, Us is shaping up to be something pretty special as a straight horror film. It...

Review: Crossbreed

Everyone has a moment when they realize they've peaked. Maybe the so-called midlife is a reflex from this. You're sitting on the couch, watching Jeopardy, still trying to figure out why they ask with answers and answer with questions, and i...

Review: Piercing

The 1994 novel Piercing by Ryu Murakami remains one of my favorite stories. It's a tense, lurid, and disturbing tale. Its mechanics are straightforward enough as a sort of bizarre game of cat-and-mouse where the main character and the woman...

First trailer for Among the Shadows looks like an FMV game

I know people have problems with the Resident Evil movies. They go too far. They're not true enough to the games that inspired them. I get it, and I agree. If only there was a movie out there that looked to have the budget and costuming of...

Don't Leave Home trailer has gothic chills aplenty

Pick your movie about a young woman overeager to head to some spooky-ass place for an extended period of time who then realizes that said place is quite spooky indeed, but then it's too late, and she becomes trapped in whatever spooky shen...

As Netflix hikes its base price to $13, Hulu has decided to make a keen business move and slash their own. Starting February 26, Hulu's lowest-tier ad-supported service will drop from $7.99 to $5.99. This won't affect their ad-free subscrip...

MoviePass launches new plans to try to win you back

MoviePass is somehow still trucking. With the five dollars in spare change its investors found under the couch cushions, the company's making another go of it. They'll now be relaunching the service with new pricing schemes that make more f...

Kyle Yadlosky's Top Five Movies of 2018

Last year was not a very good year. Politics were garbage. Economics were garbage. The world is probably going to end in like thirty years. I'm never going to be able to buy a house, and if I did it would most likely be swept away in a stor...

Review: Lifechanger

Robert is dying of some rot he doesn't understand. All he knows is that in order to ensure his survival he has to touch people and steal their skin, their voices, their memories, and everything that makes them who they are. Lifechanger begi...
