The Autopsy of Jane Doe is the newest film from director André Øvredal, the man behind the very fun found footage movie Trollhunter. Øvredal returns to us with a new horror picture starring Brian Cox and Emile Hirsch, playing father and son in this story. The Autopsy of Jane Doe recently played at Fantastic Fest, where our own Jacob Hall called the film “scary as hell.”
Below, watch The Autopsy of Jane Doe teaser trailer.

Following a Sundance premiere back in January, Jason Lew‘s The Free World is now headed to theaters. Boyd Holbrook and Elisabeth Moss lead the downbeat romantic drama. He plays Mo, fresh out of prison after spending two decades locked away for a crime he didn’t commit. Nowadays he spends his days working at an animal shelter, which is where he meets Doris (Moss), the abused wife of a police officer.
She’s desperate for help and he’s helpless to turn her away, and the two strike up an intensely emotional bond that blossoms into a romance. Octavia Spencer and Sung Kang also star. Watch The Free World trailer below. Read More »

It’s going to be a while before we get to see some of our most highly anticipated fall films, but with summer winding down at least the marketing for these movies is in full swing. Today brings the first trailer for #21 on our list, Certain Women. The new drama by Kelly Reichardt (Wendy and Lucy) is really three dramas intertwined, led by four fine actresses: Michelle Williams, Kristen Stewart, Laura Dern, and newcomer Lily Gladstone.
The women don’t necessarily have a lot in common, but all four are trying to make their way in the lonely Montana plains. Certain Women has already received some excellent reviews on the festival circuit, starting with Sundance earlier this year, and now it’s finally headed to theaters. Watch the Certain Women trailer below. Read More »
I saw I Am Not a Serial Killer at the SXSW Film Festival earlier this year and it was one of the most pleasant surprises of the fest. A throwback horror movie that never feels the need to wink or nudge, Billy O’Brien‘s film is slick, sick, and deeply interested in the humanity that lurks behind a monster (and vice versa). It also features the great Christopher Lloyd in his best role in years, playing the elderly neighbor and friend to a teenage sociopath who finds himself pursuing a serial killer in his rural town.
I was able to speak with Mr. Lloyd for a brief phone interview to discuss his work in I Am Not a Serial Killer, but we also managed to chat about the set of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, playing a Klingon, and how his first copy of the Back to the Future screenplay ended up in the trashcan.

One of the stranger films I caught at Sundance this year was Antibirth, a trippy thriller that marks Danny Perez‘s debut feature. Natasha Lyonne stars as Lou, a strung-out, hard-partying veteran who discovers she’s pregnant…despite the fact that she hasn’t had sex in months. And it just gets weirder from there, as Lou sets out to learn what’s really growing inside her. Joining Lou on this bizarre journey are her best friend Sadie (Chloë Sevigny), their drug dealer Gabriel (Mark Webber), and Lorna the conspiracy theorist (Meg Tilly).
Antibirth definitely won’t appeal to everyone, but if you’ve got a taste for whacked-out body horror and a twisted sense of humor, this one might be for you. Watch the Antibirth trailer below.

We premiered the new poster for I Am Not a Serial Killer a few days ago, so you have already read about how much I enjoyed this atmospheric and surprising little horror movie when I saw it at SXSW earlier this year. Now that the trailer is officially making the rounds, you can get a taste of what the actual film feels like. Although not too much of a taste – I’ve rarely seen a trailer so effectively dodge what the film it’s selling is actually about and I mean that as high praise.

I Am Not a Serial Killer premiered at the SXSW Film Festival earlier this year, where I saw it on a whim and found myself having a great time with it. Although it sounds like it could be a fairly typical thriller cut out of the same cloth as Showtime’s Dexter, Billy O’Brien‘s film (which is based on the novel by Dan Wells) quickly distinguishes itself as something unique, gruesome, and weird, feeling like a long-lost ’70s genre gem that somehow escaped into 2016. Anyone looking for a low-key, character-driven horror movie will find much to love with this one.
We are pleased to premiere the new poster for I Am Not a Serial Killer, which leans heavily on Christopher Lloyd‘s instantly recognizable face. And rightfully so, because he’s exceptional in the film.

Unless you’ve been living in total isolation for the past week, you’ve surely heard about Pokemon Go, the new mobile game that uses augmented reality technology to allow users to search the physical world for adorable little monsters that only exist through their smartphone cameras. While virtual reality has been the Next Big Thing in gaming for years now, Pokemon Go feels like the first step in a revolution. VR may still be huge, but AR has officially tapped into the public consciousness in a big way.
In other words, IFC Midnight couldn’t have picked a better window to begin marketing their new film Let’s Be Evil, which revolves around augmented reality. And creepy artificial intelligences. And creepier children. And what certainly looks like a body count. We’re pleased to premiere the official poster for director Martin Owen‘s new film, which you can check out below.

Not nearly enough people saw Richard Linklater‘s Everybody Wants Some!! It’s another great hangout movie from Linklater, and it’ll likely age well and catch on more with time. Linklater has made a few movies that didn’t click with audiences right away, but like his financial hits, they’ve so far proven to have a staying power.
The 55-year-old, who rarely ever seems to age, has had a career driven by variety. He’s always trying new things as a storyteller, even in the instance of his Bad News Bears remake, but of course, the most well-known example is his 12-year project, Boyhood. Linklater has made a series of wide-ranging and ambitious choices, and if you want to hear him explain some of those choices, then you may want to check out a tease for an upcoming documentary on the filmmaker in the Richard Linklater: Dream Is Destiny trailer.
