Freaks Clips

Superhero movies are still all the rage, and while it’s easy for some to get frustrated with all the capes out there nowadays, there’s still some creativity to be found in the sci-fi subgenre. That’s especially true when it comes to bringing superheroes into the indie arena, just as directors and writers Adam Stein & Zach Lipovsky have done with their new movie

Freaks stars Emile Hirsch as a father trying to keep his seven-year-old daughter Chloe locked up inside their house because a group of people known as Abnormals threaten the outside world. At least that’s what she’s been led to believe. But when she actually gets a glimpse outside, everything may not be as it seems. Two new Freaks clips have been released, showing us just how much mystery there is in this intriguing new indie. Read More »

Freaks debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival last year, where it was a minor sensation, and continued to accumulate awards as it made the festival rounds at the Brussels International Film Festival, Vancouver International Film Festival, and Paris International Film Festival. But before the twisty sci-fi film starring Emile Hirsch heads to theaters, it’s coming to Comic-Con. Ahead of its San Diego Comic-Con debut, watch the new Freaks trailer.

Emile Hirsch takes “overprotective father” to the next level in Freaks, a curious sci-fi thriller that reveals very little in its first trailer. Locking his 7-year-old daughter (Lexy Kolker) in their house and boarding up the windows, Hirsch seems to be protecting her from something — but we are kept in the dark about what that is. Watch the first Freaks trailer below.

an evening with beverly luff linn trailer

The romantic-comedy has never been so absurd as it is in An Evening With Beverly Luff Linn. But hey, when you have Aubrey Plaza and Jermaine Clement in a movie together, what do you expect? Plaza is basically a real-life witch taken form, while I’m convinced that What We Do in the Shadows star Clement is an actual vampire. Put the two of them together, and voila, you have one of the trippiest, freakiest romances put to the big screen.

the autopsy of jane doe review

Note: With The Autopsy of Jane Doe out now, we’re re-running our review from Fantastic Fest.

 

The horror genre is so often dominated by stupid characters doing stupid things, so it’s refreshing to watch a film like The Autopsy of Jane Doe. Here is a frightening story about two intelligent men whose talents for science and deduction break against a wall of undefinable supernatural power. Here is a fascinating mystery where the pleasures are not only derived from a series of increasingly terrifying and impossible discoveries, but from watching these two men work down a checklist of every possible rational explanation before realizing they are beyond their limits.

The Autopsy of Jane Doe is a film as interested in process as it is in jump scares and the result is one of the most entertaining horror movies I’ve seen in a year that has had no shortage of great scary movies.

the autopsy of jane doe trailer

André Øvredal‘s The Autopsy of Jane Doe was one of my favorite movies at Fantastic Fest 2016 and one of the best horror films I’ve seen in a year that has been very kind to the genre. It will be released on VOD platforms on December 20, 2016 and in select theaters on December 21, 2016. If you like good horror movies that value performances and mood and character as much as they value scares, you should go out of your way to see it. If it’s playing in a theater near you, it’s worth the price of admission. This is such an audience movie.

And if you’ve already decided to see it, I’d recommend skipping the latest trailer, which tips its hand a little too much and teases a few too many of the film’s finest scares.

the autopsy of jane doe red band trailer

When I left the theater after seeing The Autopsy of Jane Doe at Fantastic Fest last month, the first thing I did was try to find a way to steady my nerves because this movie is scary as hell. The second thing I did was wonder how IFC Midnight was going to market a movie that takes place almost entirely around an autopsy table, with an increasingly, uh, examined dead body being central to much of the plot. The easiest answer: a red band trailer, of course.
