the reckoning trailer

Neil Marshall made a splash in the early 2000s with the werewolf horror movie Dog Soldiers and the claustrophobic classic The Descent. But then the British filmmaker made his way over to TV, directing episodes of Westworld, Lost in Space, and most famously, Game of Thrones. His big-budget break wouldn’t be quite the success it was anticipated to be, with 2019’s Hellboy tanking both critically and commercially. But now Marshall is back in the good ol’ horror genre, with a supernatural horror flick titled The Reckoning starring the infamous Charlotte Kirk. Watch The Reckoning trailer below.

The Vast of Night

(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 MovieThe Vast of Night

Where You Can Stream It: Amazon Prime Video

The Pitch: In 1950s small town New Mexico, a young switchboard operator begins fielding calls from folks in nearby towns who are reporting mysterious sightings in the sky. The operator and a local radio DJ team up to investigate a mysterious audio frequency that is interrupting the radio signals – a sound which triggers specific memories in a couple of older people in the area.

Why It’s Essential Viewing: A mesmerizing, immersive sci-fi mystery, The Vast of Night gave me that once-or-twice a year feeling I always yearn for when I’m watching a new movie: the feeling of being completely enveloped in a world and being in the hands of a storyteller who makes so many right decisions in a row that I’m confident it’s building to something great. This might just be the best movie of the year that no one is talking about. Read More »

The Skeleton Twins

(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: The Skeleton Twins

Where You Can Stream It: Hulu and Amazon Prime

The Pitch: After ten years of estrangement, twins Maggie (Kristen Wiig) and Milo (Bill Hader) coincidentally cheat death on the same day, prompting them to reunite and confront how their lives went so wrong. As the twins’ reunion reinvigorates them both, they realize that the key to fixing their lives just may lie in repairing their own relationship with each other.

Why It’s Essential Viewing: In 2014, Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig had only been away from Saturday Night Live for a year or two. Wiig had already found big screen stardom thanks to Bridesmaids, and Hader was on his way thanks to some memorable supporting roles. But the two got a chance to showcase their versatility thanks to the Sundance selected indie The Skeleton Twins, a film that allowed the duo to tap into their comedic skills while effectively stretching their dramatic chops. Though the story follows a familiar festival film formula, it’s still emotionally engaging and delightfully entertaining. Read More »
