Synopsis: In The Midnight Man, teenager Alex (Gabrielle Haugh) and her best friend Miles (Grayson Gabriel) discover a mysterious box hidden away in the attic in her grandmother’s sprawling mansion. Inside are instructions for The Midnight Game, an ancient pagan ritual said to summon the player’s greatest fears. It all seems like harmless fun to Alex and […]
In the last month of her pregnancy, Esther Woodhouse is savagely beaten in an alleyway by an unknown assailant and loses her baby. To aid in her recovery, she attends a support group for grieving parents where she meets Melanie, who claims her son and husband were killed by a drunk driver.
Esther and Melanie develop a friendship, but soon it becomes clear that both are harboring much darker secrets than they initially let on. And when both their lives are transformed by another shocking act of violence, they find that recovery may be impossible.
This movie has had my interest since I first peeped the trailer that I have included below. I’ve heard some mixed reaction to the film, as it was recently released to VOD platforms, but after a trailer that awesome, I still have hopes for enjoying it myself. IFC have announced that they will be releasing […]
For whatever reason, I’ve put off sitting down to watch Would You Rather, for as long as possible. In my younger years, I would dive into any low budget, independent film balls first, and ask questions later. As the economy takes a nosedive down the toilet, and digital entertainment dominates the rental market, the fact […]
I have toiled with this flick for a few days now. I wasn’t sure whether I actually wanted to review it, and Quite honestly The Pact from IFC Midnight bored me. It wasn’t a poorly produced movie, and it certainly was in keeping with much of the other films that have been coming out of […]
Having never been in a high security mental institution I can only imagine what the interaction between cook and patient really is. I keep thinking of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest… Nurse Ratchet. McMurphy. Chief. It would seem to me it’s a rather humorous place to be if you just take the Ken Kesey […]
In the mid to late 90’s I watched quite a few films about growing up, being different, having the price $6.66 show up everywhere and being a girlie in a “man’s world” breaking out of the traditional mold society likes to poor us into. While Entrance is not exactly a film about growing up, being […]
Not many films develop the amount of hyperbole that surrounded The Human Centipede. Before the flick was even available to audiences, director Tom Six was touting it as one of the “sickest films of all time.” To be fair to Six, I think his intentions were pure. I think a lot of his theory relied […]
I am not a particularly political person. I don’t have any reasons as to why that is, it just that politics never concerned me. While that might make me a poor citizen, I enjoy swimming in own head far too much to be bothered with that business. I do enjoy, and understand politics in films […]
IFC Midnight and Magnet have been releasing quality films in recent years, a sign that you don’t always need wait for the next big Hollywood horror film to find a decent watch (horror use to be big in Hollywood, don’t be hatin’). IFC Midnight has brought us some great flicks like Super, Dead Snow, and […]
IFC is one distributor that has their head in the game lately. Between them, and Magnet, 2010-2011 has been an outstanding time to be a genre fan. The Soska Sisters’ long talked about opus “Dead Hooker In A Trunk” is finally being made available to US viewers. IFC Midnight has picked up the film for […]
We’ve got three new clips from the comedy Vampires, which hit VOD from IFC Midnight on July 1st. You can check out our previous post about this Hungarian flick here.
Oh, vampires. You’re quickly becoming the new zombies, if you have not already done so. There’s books for every age group and demographic, TV shows, films, video-games, comic-books, you name it. Hell, there’s even a goddamn vampire Fleshlight for all of you guys that want to get a fanged up blowjob for whatever reason. WE […]
Coming to VOD on July 27th and select theaters on July 29th from IFC Midnight is Spiderhole. Personally I have been following the progress of this UK flick for quite a while now and am really excited about it.
It would seem that IFC Midnight have really putting forth the effort to get a good wide range of horror onto our screens of late. The latest is Canadian movie The Shrine which won Best Canadian Feature at the Fantasia Film Festival , and is set to hit VOD on July 15th.
No stranger to releasing relatively unknown, foreign genre flicks stateside, IFC Midnight have announced VOD distribution of Hungarian vampire satire VAMPIRES for streaming as of July 1st. I’m rather unfamiliar with this one so I will go ahead and quote the press-release from IFC:
A little over a year ago, a film titled DAYBREAKERS came out. I’m sure you’ve all heard of it, or even read about it here on this very site. It promised a post-apocalyptic vampire film with a seemingly intriguing premise, a B-to-A-list-cast and a directing/writing duo that previously gave us a little-zombie-film-that-could in the form […]
