A Glitch in the Matrix trailer

Magnolia Pictures has acquired A Glitch in the Matrix, the newest documentary from Rodney Ascher, who made the acclaimed film Room 237 which presented fascinating deep-dive analyses of Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining. This new film, which will premiere at next month’s Sundance Film Festival, explores the notion that we are all trapped in a simulation and our concept of reality is not what it seems. Check out the first trailer below. Read More »

Little Joe Clip

Little Shop of Horrors gave us a man-eating venus fly trap, Attack of the Killer Tomatoes delivered exactly what the title promised, and The Happening had trees that made people want to kill themselves. Now, director Jessica Hausner is giving us a new deadly plant to fear in a haunting thriller called Little Joe. We’ve got an exclusive clip that ominously introduces us to the little red bud that slowly starts to wreak havoc on a young woman’s life and son. Watch the Little Joe clip below. Read More »

little joe trailer

Keep this strange, beautiful red flower at an ideal temperature, feed it properly, speak to it regularly, and the genetically engineered “happy plant” will boost its owner’s mood. There’s no “no feeding it after midnight” rule, but something does go wrong in the care of the plant at the center of Jessica Hausner‘s eerie sci-fi film that plays like Gremlins meets Invasion of the Body Snatchers.

Little Joe follows a plant breeder whose new creation, which she dubs “Little Joe,” is supposed to enhance people’s moods. But nature has a different purpose in mind in the sci-fi thriller that premiered at Cannes earlier this year. Watch the Little Joe trailer below.

Hail Satan Trailer

Those who worship at the throne of Satan are deemed evil by a majority of the population. But what if their ideas aren’t any less radical than those who practice Christianity or other God-worshiping religions? The new documentary Hail Satan? shines a light on those who identify with the frequently persecuted religion known as Satanism and are treated like outcasts. And you might not view them in the same light when it’s all over. Watch the Hail Satan trailer below to see for yourself. Read More »

Robert Durst trial

America’s obsession with true crime stories continues today, but the genre may have peaked back in 2015 with The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst, the HBO limited series that made headlines because of the show’s extraordinary ending. I won’t spoil it (yet), but suffice it to say that the final seconds contain one of the most astounding moments in television history.

Now there’s a new development in the case: the prosecution have asked the judge handling Durst’s case to allow them to use the DVD commentary track for a movie called All Good Things as evidence. Read the latest about the Robert Durst trial below.
