While most people clamor for one or two free movie screenings every few weeks (or months, or years depending on where you live) at San Diego Comic-Con, you’ll be shooing them off like flies. Every night, multiple films screen for free and the big decision is, “How do I decide which film to go to?” The dilemma, then, for the studios is, “How do we make our screening stand out?” Anchor Bay Films has the right idea with this special screening of The Divide, directed by Xavier Gens (Hitman, Frontier(s)) and starring Michael Biehn, Rosanna Arquette, Milo Ventimiglia and Peter Stormare.
Set in a bunker-like Manhattan basement immediately following a nuclear attack, The Divide is the violent and disturbing story of what happens when you’re stuck in a enclosed space with strangers and the end of the world is right outside your door. Think Saw meets Fallout 3. If it sounds claustrophobic, then you’re getting the idea. Now imagine seeing The Divide not in a movie theater but in a similar dark, dank basement with a very small audience. That’s what they’re doing at Comic-Con. You’ll get to see a screening of the film in this scary setting, attend a cocktail reception (free food and drinks!) and then get a free, limited edition Mondo poster for the movie by famed comic book artist Jock (The Losers.)
Sound interesting? Well if you’re going to be in San Diego, we’ve got 5 pairs of tickets to giveaway and all you need to do is leave your name and email in the comments below. Read More »

It’s incredibly easy to throw around the phrase “a cult movie.” To classify a film as such well before it deserves that moniker. Even if you think a film will eventually reach that status (as I recently said about Attack the Block) a film doesn’t truly reach “cult” status for a while. It takes time.
YouTube user Kronan the Barbarian (real name Daniel Krone) has created a cool, mini-documentary called A Cult Influence which explores the phenomenon in a unique and local way. If you’re a fan of the kind of film that a small percentage of people are totally obsessed with years after its initial release, you’ll find this 10 minute movie enjoyable. Check it out after the break. Read More »

Craig Brewer’s remake of the classic 1984 Kevin Bacon film Footloose, starring Kenny Wormald and Julianne Hough, is scheduled for release in October of this year. When it was first announced, though, a group of filmmakers got so upset that Hollywood was needlessly remaking another great movie they decided to beat them to the punch. 54 filmmakers broke up the original film into segments and, last summer, assembled all those pieces into one brand new movie. Our Footloose Remake has been playing independent movie houses across the country for several months now but, just this past weekend, the whole movie made it online.
