A Quiet Place 2 looks to explore the monsters' origins

A Quiet Place is a super great movie that deserved all the praise and success it received last year. We even gave it our coveted Golden Cage for best horror movie! But such success always comes with a sinister caveat--sequels. It's been kno...

Try not to explode in the vacuum of space in Assassinaut

A giant bloody eyeball darting around, embedded behind someone's intestines is the sort of image that always gets the attention of a critic with as refined a palate as my own. If you see the above trailer and find it to be too needlessly b...

Blood Machines teaser promises a Carpenter Brut score

Carpenter Brut, a horror synthwave musician who just brings the entire house down, doing the score for some trippy sci-fi epic is one of the coolest prospects I could imagine. This teaser for Shudder's Blood Machines only offers the slimme...

Terminator: Dark Fate goes hunting in first trailer

Well, if you're going to reignite excitement over a franchise that I'd struggle to still call a franchise at this point this trailer is the way to do it. Taking the cliche tactic of playing a slow, dramatic cover of a song over an action m...

Review: Perfect

Perfect lets you know what you're in for from its opening shot: A pulsing abstract image with a heavy seizure warning shifts in shape and gains clarity and texture as a ponderous voice recites Bachelor's Degree philosophy about life and lov...

Twilight Zone Impressions: The Comedian

For the past few years, we've all had our speculative science fiction itch scratched by the return and resurgence of Black Mirror and all of the shows it inspired. But despite having a new show with updated visuals and storytelling techniqu...

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...

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: 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...

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: Time Freak

If you love romantic comedies and sci-fi then you will enjoy Time Freak. When I first saw the trailer, I really didn’t know what I was getting myself into. At first glance, it looks like another version of 50 First Dates but with the ...
