It’s a simple concept, but one I’m pretty damn into: a gangster and a detective must team up and work together to catch an evil serial killer. Not sure why, but I don’t particularly care. That’s the basic plot of South Korean director Lee Won-tae’s The Gangster, The Cop, The Devil. Before it screens at the Cannes Film Festival, check out the first teaser below.

'Bliss' Trailer: Gore, Sleaze, Vampires, And Painting

Well, hello there, Bliss, nice to meet you. Indie horror director Joe Begos (Almost Human, The Mind’s Eye) is back with a nasty, mean-mugging, gore-soaked take on a vampire story. And as the kids say (or, more likely, don’t anymore), this looks very much like my shit. Check out the trailer below. It feels like something you’d encounter as the back half of a double feature at a movie theater where you’re a little bit afraid you might get stabbed.

'Hobbs & Shaw' Trailer: 'Fast & Furious' Finally Becomes The Superhero Mad Max Movie We've Always Wanted

From humble beginnings as a Point Break knock off with cars instead of surfing, the Fast and Furious franchise has become the reigning, billion-dollar-earning, cineplex-packing action heavyweight on the block. Now they’re spinning off from the main saga with Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, following Dwayne Johnson’s Hobbs and Jason Statham’s Shaw (#JusticeForHan). A new trailer is here and…it’s just insane.

'Hagazussa' (2019) Movie Review

Austrian writer/director Lukas Feigelfeld’s Hagazussa: A Heathen’s Curse is a kind of horror that has a very specific audience. Deliberate, measured, and methodical, it’s slow-burn pace is not for everyone, but those who love it, will find much to cling to. And fortunately for me, I definitely fall into that category.

BoneBat Comedy Of Horrors Film Festival 9: Zombies, Vampires, Metal Girls, And Murder Squirrels

Sure, it’s spring, but the Seattle weather edged towards the crappy side. So there weren’t any pangs of guilt about lawns left un-mowed or yard work left un-yard worked this past Saturday. And that’s good, because I wasn’t going to do that shit anyway. Nope. Instead, I hunkered down all day, and part of the night, in a dark movie theater with a few hundred like-minded weirdo horror enthusiasts for the ninth—I can’t believe it’s nine—BoneBat Comedy of Horrors Film Festival.
