One wouldn’t exactly think Snakes on a Plane would be the catalyst to skyrocket some careers, but here we are six years later and we’re bringing news related to the forward movement from its creative team. First up, director David R. Ellis, who has since given us Shark Night 3D and The Final Destination, has been set by Paranormal Activity’s Blumhouse to direct a new horror thriller titled Sprawl.

Writing about the films of Robert Bresson usually begins by informing reader that his films must be discussed through a trance of hushed tones and quiet veneration. There is no room for rushed judgement or quick-witted observations; Bresson makes Serious Art, as opposed to Hollywood directors who do not. There are the key phrases to […]
With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we believe it’s our duty to highlight the recent, recommended titles that have recently hit the interwebs. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of […]
