The time has come yet again to highlight some great physical media, and this edition is our most jam-packed in a while. It’s so jam-packed it might as well be jelly. You have the wonderful new Criterion box set World of Wong Kari Wai; the delightfully silly Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar, Pixar’s Soul, new 4K releases of both Godzilla and Gattaca, Tom Hanks in News of the World, and the horror film The Reckoning.

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 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.

Rumors of the death of MoviePass have been greatly exaggerated. Sort of. While the theater subscription service has gone through an extremely rough patch in the last few months, they’re still around – and so is MoviePass Films, the folks that brought us Gotti! The latest venture from MoviePass Films is a horror flick from The Descent and Hellboy reboot director Neil Marshall. Called The Reckoning, the film is centered in England around the witch hunts and the great plague of 1665.
