Before Todd Phillips took audiences on a Road Trip, brought it back to the Old School or gave everyone The Hangover, he immersed himself in the college fraternity experience for the whole world to see. However, the results were so shocking that few people actually did.
In the late Nineties, following his first documentary Hated, Phillips and fellow director Andrew Gurland filmed an HBO America Undercover episode called Frat House. The aim was to uncover the truth behind rumored atrocities pledges had to endure for initiation into college fraternities. At one point, Phillips himself pledged the frat to gain access. The results were so out there the filmmakers were accused of staging the events portrayed in the film, and the final version never aired on HBO.
You can now watch Frat House online. Read more and watch the film after the jump. Read More »

Odds are if you read this site, you are an incredibly huge fan of Raiders of the Lost Ark. It’s pretty much a given. If you love films, especially geek, genre films, then Steven Spielberg and George Lucas‘ introduction of Harrison Ford‘s Indiana Jones character is either right near, or the absolute epitome of, what this little art form we call “film” can do. It’s thrilling, it’s funny, it’s surprising, it’s pretty much perfect in every single way. Plus, it was released long before most of us were eating, drinking and sleeping our love of the art form. For that reason, whenever we can delve into the kind of trivial, behind the scenes minutia that went into making the movie, we have to call it out.
Or, you can now just get all that in one place.
Jamie Benning has been making documentaries, or “filmumentaries” as he likes to call them, based on our favorite films for quite some time. He brings together all the tiny bits of interesting insider information you’ve always heard about Star Wars, Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, and now Raiders of the Lost Ark, and puts them in a well-edited, entertaining package that runs along side the main feature becoming almost a visual commentary on the movie. Raiding the Lost Ark is the title of his latest production and while it’s not 100% done, Benning has put the first 17 minutes online. Watch it after the jump. Read More »

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 »
