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.

Park Chan-Wook To Direct Violent Western 'The Brigands Of Rattlecreek' For Amazon, Matthew McConaughey Wanted To Star
Park Chan-wook helming an ultraviolent western? Yes, yes, a thousand times yes! And this is apparently a thing that’s happening. Praise be! The Oldboy and The Handmaiden director will reportedly lead The Brigands of Rattlecreek for Amazon, working from a script by Brawl in Cell Block 99’s S. Craig Zahler, with an eye on Matthew McConaughey to star.
There’s a scene in Triple Threat where Tony Jaa fights Scott Adkins, then Tony Jaa and Iko Uwais fight Scott Adkins, then Tony Jaa fights Scott Adkins solo again. A scene. Actually, not even a scene, it’s a sequence within a scene. If that’s not enough to convince you to watch a movie, keep reading, I’ll try harder.

Now that you’ve all seen Captain Marvel—at least according to the numbers, statistically speaking, most of you have, unless you’re a butthurt manbaby who’s upset Marvel invited girls to play, too—it’s high time to turn our attention to the next installment of the episodic saga that is the MCU: Avengers: Endgame. And surprise, surprise, the Marvel marketing machine released another new trailer. Check it out below.

Though it feels like it’s been coming forever, Triple Threat finally hits theaters next week for a one-day extravaganza of face-punching mayhem before it lands on VOD. Frequent visitors to this site know well how much this movie makes me salivate. And we have a new clip that should do the same for you. Check it out below.

'Master Z: Ip Man Legacy' Trailer: The Martial Arts Saga Continues With Max Zhang, Michelle Yeoh, Tony Jaa, And Dave Bautista
Max Zhang, Michelle Yeoh, Dave Bautista, and Tony Jaa in a movie directed by Yuen Woo-ping? If that doesn’t move you to watch Master Z: Ip Man Legacy, you probably don’t like action movies. And if that’s the case, why are you here? I kid, I kid. But in all seriousness, if this trailer is any indication, Master Z is going to be a barn burner. Check it out.

After eleven years, 20 movies, and much brouhaha, with Captain Marvel, Marvel finally let one of their female characters lead an installment of their expansive cinematic universe, as well as hire a female (co-)director. The film has traits that make it unique and stand out, but at the same time, it often becomes a paint-by-numbers MCU origin story. Full of ups and downs, it’s still an engaging, entertaining addition, one that will have a lingering on-screen impact moving forward and also carries surplus revelatory weight simply by existing.

For first time feature writer/director, Ari Aster knocked one out of the proverbial park last year with Hereditary. It’s not only one of my favorite movies of 2018, it’s also one of the best horror movies in recent memory. So, you’re damn right his next movie is high up on my must-see list. And lucky for everyone, his follow up, Midsommar, opens this summer. Check out the spooky first trailer below.

People adore Guillermo del Toro’s Hellboy movies. I like them well enough, but I don’t get the crazy love. Similarly, I like the comics fine, but don’t obsess. Basically, my point is that I’ve never been the one clamoring for more from the big red guy. I’ll watch and probably enjoy, certainly, but news of the new Hellboy doesn’t exactly set me on fire. What does excite me about this new project, however, is that it’s a new Neil Marshall movie, and the idea of the Dog Soldiers and The Descent director back on the big screen and working with monsters is an idea I can get behind. All that said, here’s a new Hellboy trailer, as well as a red band version and a bunch of posters.
