resident evil the final chapter clip

When the Resident Evil series was one single mediocre movie, I didn’t care for it. When it was two movies, it could barely hold my interest. And then there were three movies. And then four movies. And then five. And now, sixth movie in the series, titled Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, is due out at the end of the month and damn it, these silly movies have won me over. As the number of films has increased, as their internal logic and mythology has gotten increasingly convoluted, as it became increasingly clear that these movies have a very specific lunatic identity, I began to appreciate them. They’re not good, but man, I sure like talking about ’em.

So yeah, I can behind the newest clip from the movie, which features series star Milla Jovovich battling Game of Thrones star Iain Glen on top of a giant armored vehicle that’s being pursued by a horde of zombies. Sure. Why not?

clowntergiest trailer

The title of this movie is Clowntergeist and it is a horror movie about an evil clown. Specifically, it is a horror movie about a clown that is possessed by a demon and stalks around a small town, leaving messages on balloons informing his victims exactly when he will kill them. It seems to contain shades of The Ring, It, and Poltergeist. It looks, by design, completely absurd and possibly very bad. It also looks like it could be, under the right circumstances, kind of fun? Maybe? You can watch the trailer and judge for yourself.

friday the 13th movies ranked

Over the past week, I’ve been revisiting the Friday the 13th series with one simple, stupid goal: I was going to rank every single person killed by Jason Voorhees (and his fellow murderers) in the entire series. There turned out to be 181 of them and I ranked them here and here.

But throughout the process, other questions kept cropping up: which Friday the 13th movie is your favorite? How would you rank them? Is The New Blood really worse than Jason Takes Manhattan? So, in the interest of laying it all on the table, here is the completely correct and scientifically accurate ranking of every movie in the Friday the 13th series.

every friday the 13th kill

Welcome to the second (and final!) part of my complete ranking of all 181 kills from the Friday the 13th film series. If you’re just joining us, I recommend heading over to part one for the details on how this list came together along with the ranking of kills 181 through 51. Today, we’re going to dive into the top 50.

Let’s keep this party going.

Garance Marillier in Raw

“Cannibalism coming-of-age story” isn’t a phrase you hear every day, and that in itself is reason enough to be curious about Raw. Add in the fact that Raw received rave reviews on the festival circuit (that is, when it wasn’t making audiences sick to their stomachs) and that it’s being heralded as a breakout for first-time director Julia Ducournau and young star Garance Marillier and Ella Rumpf, and it’s skyrocketed to near the very top of my most-anticipated list.

Raw centers around a young woman who’s having a rough time adjusting to college. For most of us, that means battling annoying roommates or pounding hangovers; for her, it means developing an insatiable hunger for flesh. Focus World has just served up the first trailers for Raw today, and if you’ve got a taste for the macabre you’ll definitely want to dig in. Check ’em out below. Read More »

every friday the 13th kill

At my count, 181 people are killed during the course of the Friday the 13th movie series.

I know this because I’ve spent the past week or so revisiting this iconic slasher horror series, which stars Jason Voorhees, the unstoppable hillbilly serial killer who usually wears a hockey mask, is sometimes a zombie, and always leaves a trail of corpses wherever he goes. A Friday the 13th movie is only as good as its kills – we watch these movies to see just how many bizarre, bloody and creative ways this lumbering monster can take down his victims. Naturally, some kills are better than others.

And that is why I’m going to rank them from worst to best.

dark/web photos

Felt Films have given us an exclusive look at their upcoming eight-part sci-fi horror anthology series Dark/Web, which wraps production this month. The new series will explore the dangers of a connected world — the pitch is basically Black Mirror meets V/H/S.

One of the episodes is even written and directed by Zelda Williams, the daughter of the great Robin Williams making her directorial debut, in a video game horror story title “Zero” starring Gabriel Luna (Agents of Shield’s new Ghost Rider). Check out a bunch of exclusive photos after the jump.

last friday board game review

Welcome to Cardboard Cinema, a monthly feature that explores the intersection between movies and tabletop gaming. This column is sponsored by Dragon’s Lair Comics & Fantasy in Austin, Texas.

You know the scene: an isolated summer camp in an unspecified corner of the United States. You know the cast: a group of young camp counselors, all gathered for a summer of slacking off, getting stoned, and having sex. And you know the machete-wielding manic watching them from afar: he’s going to kill them all.

Welcome to Last Friday, a board game designed by Antonio Ferrara and Sebastiano Fiorillo and published by Ares Games. This is a hidden movement deduction game, where one player moves in secret and works against the rest of the players, who move in full sight of everyone at table. And while this is familiar concept, there’s a unique twist here: the player moving in secret wants to kill everyone else on the map.
