Oscar®-nominated writer-director Nacho Vigalondo (The ABCs of Death, Timecrimes, V/H/S Viral) creates an action-packed world of voyeurism and suspense in his thriller OPEN WINDOWS. Nick (Elijah Wood, Maniac, The Lord of the Rings) is excited to discover that he’s won a dinner date with his favorite actress, Jill Goddard (Sasha Grey, Would You Rather, The Girlfriend Experience). But when Jill refuses to honor the contest, her manager Chord (Neil Maskell, Wild Bill, Pusher) makes an offer he can’t refuse: the ability to view Jill secretly via computer. Nick begins watching the unknowing star on her webcam, not realizing that this decision will put both himself and Jill at risk as they enter a terrifying world of cat-and-mouse where nothing—and no one—are as they seem.
UPDATE: I’ve just been informed by a colleague that at least one of the aforementioned sequels is still slated for production, and release. There isn’t a lot of info available at this time, so we’ll keep you posted. Hopefully this is true. The good news is, that a “prequel” to Cabin Fever is hitting VOD outlets […]
I know some people greatly dislike Greg Mclean’s Wolf Creek. If I had to take a guess as to why, it would be because it was released right around the height of the “torture porn” craze. When Saw and Hostel made it popular, studios cashed in with both super-low-budget features, and features with a decent […]
As soon as I saw the list of crew members that helped to bring Cheap Thrills to fruition, I knew I was going to love it. I’m a huge fan of Adam Wingard, and his style seems to rub off on his friends, and those he tends to work with. Couple that with the exceptional […]
Adam Mason has long been one of my favorite independent filmmakers. Mason made me take notice with his film Broken, that was released under the since-defunct Dimension Extreme line of home video releases, and then made me a lifer with what I would argue is his best film, The Devil’s Chair, which was released back […]
Abandoned Mine (2013) Starring: Alexa Vega, Reiley McClendon, Saige Thompson Writers: Jeff Chamberlain, Scott Woldman Director: Jeff Chamberlain Well this wasn’t my pint of beer, if ya know what I’m saying. Had Abandoned Mine came out around the time I was in love with Dawson’s Creek and Party of Five behind closed doors, […]
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 […]
Warning: There are technically no spoilers that haven’t been shown to you in trailers already within this review. However, if you wish to remain completely in the dark as to what each segment of V/H/S/2 is about, please abstain from reading until after you’ve seen the film. Otherwise, have at it. When I finished V/H/S […]
A lot of people hated V/H/S for one reason or another. Some seemed to have expected 90 minutes of VHS collector porn. I was personally a huge fan of the film. So much so that it damn near made my top 10 of 2012 list, but so much great shit was released in 2012 that […]
One of the problems with the surge of found footage films these days is that they so rarely take a new or interesting approach. While so few titles in the found footage genre have dared to try something new, even fewer have succeeded. ‘The Bay’ dares to take a new and shockingly realistic approach to […]
The Revenant is a film that I’ve been excited to see for nearly 3 years. With a production date of 2009, the film sat on the shelf, making only a few festival appearances. Eventually it was released on DVD and Blu Ray in other territories. This, naturally, led to torrents of the movie to start […]
The pow wow continues this week as Jeff Konopka, Shawn Savage and Jesse Bartel get their cumbaya yas out around the camp fire known as the internet while discussing the brandy new Ti West ghost story, The Innkeepers. As usual they’ll be talking in depth about the film and you may awant to avoid if […]
One of the most talked about, highly anticipated horror films of the season has to be the anthology CHILLERAMA. With segments directed by Tim Sullivan, Adam Green, Adam Rifkin, and Joe Lynch, the early word on the film is that it’s a fantastic homage to drive-in cinema. Unexpected demand for the film have caused IMAGE […]
John Landis’ comedy about the graverobbers Burke and Hare, starring Simon Pegg and Andy Serkis, is now available to view online, at SundanceNow.com, as well as on VOD through Comcast, Cox, Cablevision, Time Warner, and Bright House. It then hits the theaters September 9th. I say about time too, as it has seemingly sat in […]
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.
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:
The Troll Hunter is a Norwegian “found-footage” style film that has been making waves on the festival circuit. The premise is simple, yet effective. A group of college filmmakers are following a man believed to be an undocumented bear hunter. In Norway, all bear hunters must be licensed by the government, therefore, the man they […]
