The Frankenstein story has been adapted, tweaked, and tinkered with countless times across every medium. With Depraved legendary filmmaker Larry Fessenden gives the tale a lo-fi indie horror spin, though it’s more concerned with Brooklyn hipsters dealing with trauma than typical genre trappings.

We’re big Scott Adkins stans around these parts. He’s one of the best movie martial artists working right now and, outside of a few dalliances with big time Hollywood blockbusters like Doctor Strange, he almost exclusively makes the kind of mid-tier actioners that haven’t been mainstream since the ‘80s and ‘90s. Today marks the release of his epic team up Triple Threat, which you should watch ASAP, but he has another badass project on the way, the prison revenge movie Avengement. Watch the first trailer below.

It’s that time of year again. That time where, in Seattle anyway, a bunch of like-minded horror enthusiast weirdos spend 12 hours of a (possibly) lovely spring weekend day hunkered down inside like mole folk; drinking beer; and watching a ridiculous amount of strange, twisted, and otherwise warped movies. Yes, you guessed it, it’s the annual BoneBat Comedy of HorrorsFilm Festival.
So, he’s thinking he’s back…for a third time. This May, Keanu Reeves puts on his meticulously tailored suit, scruffy beard, and shoots everyone in the head. Again. I couldn’t be more excited. And to that end, watch the latest trailer for John Wick: Chapter 3—Parabellum.

Following up any movie as culturally impactful, wildly popular, and generally acclaimed as Get Out is a daunting task, especially considering it was a debut feature. But Jordan Peele is back with Us, his sophomore horror yarn. I don’t want to pit it against his previous endeavor, they’re drastically different, but it is a creepy, atmospheric, weird-as-balls doppelganger horror. There’s a lot to unpack, but I think I love the way Peele’s brain works. It’s also as relevant as Hands Across America has been or ever will be.
Quentin Tarantino finally has his Once Upon a Time movie. You knew it was bound to happen. I honestly expected it to be a western, but as he’s done that the last two times out of the gate, I guess that wasn’t in the cards. As you might imagine, some folks are frothing over at the prospect of a new QT movie, so without further ado, here’s the first trailer for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

Roxanne Benjamin’s Body at Brighton Rock was one of my 50 most-anticipated movies of 2019. The stripped-down thriller just premiered at SXSW and between the positive reviews and this first trailer, my hype levels haven’t abated one bit. Take a look after the jump.
