the reckoning release date

The Reckoning, the latest from The Descent director Neil Marshall, has found a home: RLJ Entertainment and horror streaming service Shudder have purchased the film for a 2021 release. The movie, which follows a woman falsely accused of being a witch, has had somewhat of a bumpy road. The project was originally set up at MoviePass Films (remember them?), and then, things got further bogged down when star and co-writer Charlotte Kirk, who is also dating Marshall, became embroiled in two Hollywood scandals.

Slasher Flesh and Blood

David Cronenberg, one of the two best things to come out of Canada (the other is ketchup chips), will star in the new season of Slasher on Shudder. The latest season is titled Slasher: Flesh and Blood, and it follows a wealthy family targeted by a killer on a secluded island. It’s not clear how big Cronenberg’s role will be, but this certainly isn’t the first time the filmmaker has appeared in front of the camera. Not only does he have a wealth of cameos, but he also had a major role in Clive Barker’s cult classic Nightbreed.

leap of faith trailer

Alexandre O. Philippe has already explored classic horror films with his documentaries 78/52: Hitchcock’s Shower Scene and Memory: The Origins of Alien, and now he’s done it again with Leap of Faith. This latest doc delves into The Exorcist, William Friedkin’s iconic classic about a little girl possessed by a demonic force. There have already been several documentaries devoted to The Exorcist, but Leap of Faith takes a cue from Noah Baumbach and Jake Paltrow’s documentary De Palma by sticking with one source: William Friedkin. Leap of Faith has been making the festival circuit and is now headed to Shudder.

Quarantine Stream Amityville It's About Time

(Welcome to The Quarantine Stream, a new series where the /Film team shares what they’ve been watching while social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.)

The Movie: Amityville: It’s About Time

Where You Can Stream It: Shudder

The Pitch: An old clock that was once in the Amityville Horror house and used in a room where children were sacrificed in a Satanic ritual ends up in California, where it proceeds to wreak havoc on the life of an architect, his girlfriend, and his kids.

Why It’s Essential Quarantine Viewing: For years I avoided watching Amityville: It’s About Time, because I thought, “There is zero chance that movie is good.” Hell, I don’t even like the original Amityville Horror, and knowing this sequel was about a haunted clock just seemed like a truly dumb idea. So color me surprised when I gave this thing a shot over the weekend and found it to be…kind of awesome? Yes, it’s very silly. Yes, the plot makes almost no sense. And yet…
