the other lamb trailer

Cults! They’re creepy! And the cult at the center of The Other Lamb certainly has that creep factor down pat, wth dozens of blank-faced woman with bodily scarring dutifully serving the messiah-like leader played by The Haunting of Hill House‘s Michael Huisman. But one innocent teenage member (played by The Killing of a Sacred Deer‘s Raffey Cassidy) who has lived her entire life in the cult, starts to see the commune for the horrifying place it is in the chilling film from Polish filmmaker Malgorzata Szumowska.

As a Lynn Shelton movie, Sword of Trust is both familiar and an oddity. The dramedy has a focused yet free-wheeling narrative similar to Shelton’s other heavily-improvised movies, including Your Sister’s Sister and Laggies, but it’s the first movie of hers that could arguably be considered a partial thriller. There are more guns and swords in Sword of Trust than the usual Lynn Shelton film.

Caught directly in the middle of the drama over a Civil War-era sword is a pawnshop owner by the name of Mel, who’s played by renowned comedian and podcaster Marc Maron. Shelton first directed Maron in his IFC comedy series, which they followed up with his Netflix special, Too Real, and now Sword of Trust. The two similarly intimate storytellers have proven to be a compatible combo over the last few years. Recently, Maron told us about being directed by Shelton, how they made his comedy special truly intimate, continuing to grow as an actor, and of course, Van Halen frontman Diamond David Lee Roth.

The Nightingale release

The Nightingale, the latest film from The Babadook director Jennifer Kent, had its debut at the Venice Film Festival in September of 2018, and then promptly vanished. The hype and buzz that surrounded Babadook didn’t seem to be swirling around The Nightingale as much, and many of us wondered when we’d finally get to see the movie. Now we know, thanks to IFC Films. IFC, who also distributed The Babadook, have snapped up the U.S. rights to the film, and plan to release it in summer 2019. The film is set in 1825, and follows a woman chasing a man through the Tasmanian wilderness on a quest for revenge.
