My personal jury is still out on director Mickey Keating, but one thing has become increasingly clear over the past two years or so: he’s here to stay. His new film, Carnage Park, rode a wave of generally positive buzz at Sundance and SXSW this year and the first trailer makes this look like the film that could break him out of his current niche. That is, if he even wants to break out of his current niche. Keating’s work certainly suggests that he is perfectly happy making films directly for already-entrenched horror fans and trash cinema aficionados. Carnage Park looks more accessible than his previous films, but it also looks like it’s in his usual grimy wheelhouse.

The life of an aging rock star can be a depressing one as the raging lifestyle of sex and drugs begins to turn into a lonely, quiet time of reflection. That’s exactly what Rhys Ifans experiences in the new drama Len and Company as his son (Jack Kilmer) seeks his father’s approval for his own musical career.
The first Len and Company trailer has debuted, showing a pretty typical family drama from the festival circuit. But with music at the heart of the story, it should have a pretty decent soundtrack. Watch below. Read More »

There’s plenty of insanity to go around on all sides of this year’s presidential race, but it’s not like high-profile elections have ever been scandal- and drama-free. Case in point: remember the 2013 mayoral race? You know, the one that ended with Carlos Danger showing up and ruining everything for then-frontrunner Anthony Weiner? A new documentary, Weiner, looks at the politician’s dramatic and very public decline, offering a juicy inside look at a campaign in crisis. Read More »

It looks like one of this spring’s big cinematic themes is going to be heavily fictionalized not-quite-biopics about washed-up jazz legends staging unlikely comebacks. Just a few days before Don Cheadle’s Miles Ahead hits theaters, IFC Films is releasing Born to Be Blue, starring Ethan Hawke as Chet Baker.
Directed by Robert Budreau, the film picks up with Baker in the 1960s. Though he was a big deal in the 1950s, his heroin addiction has taken its toll, demolishing his personal and professional life. But with the help of a new love (played by Carmen Ejogo), he finds the strength to try and dig himself out of the hole he’s put himself in, and begin the climb back to the top. Watch the Born to Be Blue trailer after the jump.

This summer hasn’t really been a great one for horror, but thankfully there seem to be some more promising entries on the horizon as fall rolls around. One on our radar is The Hallow, a British-Irish supernatural thriller that got some good reviews at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.
The story follows a British conservationist (Joseph Mawle) who’s sent to rural Ireland, wife (Bojana Novakovic) and infant son in tow, to survey a forest for development. Locals warn him that the woods are teeming with malevolent spirits and supernatural creatures, and he realizes too late that they’re probably right. Watch The Hallow trailer after the jump.

Canadian director Bruce McDonald has been making weird movies and TV shows for a long time; his 1991 film Highway 61 is a personal fave, as are the 1998 series Twitch City and the 2008 thriller Pontypool. His latest film is Hellions, in which a few people have probably their worst-ever Halloween night when demonic little trick-or-treaters show up on their doorstep. The Hellions trailer has some very odd Halloween sights; have a look below. Read More »
Romantic comedies usually don’t impress me. They’re just not my cup of tea unless I really like the on-screen talent involved. More often than not it’s the indie romantic comedies that bring something fresh enough to shake up the subgenre to make it entertaining and sincere, and that’s exactly what happens with Sleeping with Other People.
The Sundance selected movie from Bachelorette writer and director Leslye Headland features Alison Brie and Jason Sudeikis as two two sex addicts unable to commit to real relationships who decide to hold each other accountable for their destructive behavior and strike up quite the strong bond. So strong that they begin to act like a couple, even though they’re not, and you know what that means
This is an R-rated romantic comedy so the new Sleeping with Other People red band trailer is the best way to get the right vibe from this hilarious, authentic romance. Watch the new trailer below! Read More »
