Fans of classic Twilight Zone episodes may want to put Andrew Patterson’s The Vast of Night on their radar. The throwback sci-fi mystery filters that moody, atmospheric vibe through a nostalgic Amblin lens. While it lacks much forward propulsion and true tension, it’s a lovely, sure-handed film that brims with charm and potential, even if unrealized.

Thank god for Scott Adkins. While we’re lucky if we get a couple of big, bloated studio action movies a summer, maybe one in the fall, the British martial artist consistently churns out three or four (sometimes more) badass DTV actioners a year. And they tend to be the low-budget, bone-crunching, from-a-bygone-era style we adore around these parts. We’ve kept an eye on the development of Legacy of Lies for a while now, but we finally have our first trailer, and it is good.

Hear me out, a bus driver, his teen sidekick, two cops, and a priest go into the jungle…No, it’s not the start of a tawdry joke. When combined with a coven of vengeful witches, it’s the basic plot of the first horror movie horror movie to hail from Panama, Diablo Rojo PTY. A bit slight, directors Sol Moreno and J. Oskura Najera nevertheless create a strange, dark, witch-infested descent into hell.

If you’re a regular visitor to this particular corner of the internet, you know we get rather excited for any news pertaining to the works of one Scott Adkins. The preeminent DTV action badass, the man stays busy—he had five movies come out in 2019, and 2020 is shaping up for a similar run. One we’re particularly jazzed for is the international espionage thriller Legacy of Lies, which finally has a release date.
