Guillermo del Toro Provides Updates on ‘Nightmare Alley’, Stop Motion ‘Pinocchio’, and Getting Back to Work

Director Guillermo del Toro is one of the busiest filmmakers in Hollywood. If he’s not behind the camera directing, he’s usually writing away in his notebook or producing a film from the next big name in horror. But right now, he’s stuck at home waiting for Hollywood to let him get back to work. On the bright side, that means Guillermo del Toro had the time provide a status update on his psychological thriller Nightmare Alley, which Fox Searchlight had in production when the coronavirus pandemi...

‘The Tax Collector’ Trailer: Director David Ayer Returns to the Crime-Thriller Genre

David Ayer, director of Suicide Squad, Fury, and writer of Training Day, returns to the world of the crime thriller with The Tax Collector.

‘Room 104’ Season 4 Trailer: Dave Bautista and Jillian Bell Check in for the Final Season of This Wild Anthology Stories

HBO and the Duplass Brothers have been delivering some wild, trippy, hilarious, scary, and weird stories in the late night half-hour anthology series Room 104. Each season features new episodes which all take place in the same titular room of a typical American chain motel, but they’re all remarkably different, each with a different plot, tone, and even time period, featuring various characters having all sorts of experiences.

Cool Stuff: ‘Unbreakable’, ‘Split’, and ‘Glass’ Get a Deluxe Vinyl Soundtrack Box Set from Waxwork Records

When Split arrived in 2016, audiences were blown away by one of M.Night Shyamalan‘s biggest surprise endings yet. The thriller starring James McCavoy as a kidnapper with dissociative identity disorder was revealed to exist within the same universe as Unbreakable, the gritty superhero drama starring Bruce Willis and Samuel L.

‘Unhinged’, ‘Bill & Ted Face the Music’ and ‘Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse’ Release Dates Delayed

Christopher Nolan‘s Tenet and Disney’s remake of Mulan have been pushed back into August, which has shaken up how soon movie theaters will be reopening.

"Tingle Monsters" is an incredibly unsettling ASMR feminist horror film

If you don't get chills from the ASMR audio experience of Tingle Monsters, then you'll definitely get them from the looming tension and sheer overwhelming sexist dread that oozes throughout this ten-minute short film (especially in the expertly-created comments section that helps to drive the plot). It is weirdly kind of relaxing, until it's absolutely not. Here's the official synopsis: An ASMR vlogger with a devoted fan base returns from an extended absence with a livestream that spirals ou...

Christopher Nolan’s ‘Tenet’ Has Been Delayed Again, This Time to Mid-August

Perhaps it’s cruel fate that Christopher Nolan‘s new movie, Tenet, deals with the concept of time, because the release date for his highly-anticipated spy thriller is hopping all over the calendar. A new report says that after Warner Bros. recently delayed Tenet from its original July 14 release date to July 31, the film has now been pushed back yet again, this time to August 12, 2020.

Quentin Tarantino “Stormed Out of Meeting” After Universal Pitched iPhone Release of ‘Hateful Eight’

Before Quentin Tarantino permanently severed ties with The Weinstein Company in the wake of the allegations against Harvey Weinstein, Tarantino was shopping around his 2015 film The Hateful Eight to a few other distributors. But one particularly egregious pitch from Universal may have driven Tarantino back into the arms of The Weinstein Company (Tarantino would later depart for good and make Once Upon a Time in Hollywood with Sony). But things might have been very different if then-Universal he...

‘You Should Have Left’ Featurette: Kevin Bacon is Six Degrees of Tormented in Haunted House Thriller

Sometimes the worst demons in a horror movie aren’t the ones that terrorize you from within a haunted house, but the personal ones you harbor.

Watch: Creating the Unconventional Music of ‘Becky’, the Indie Thriller Starring Kevin James as a Villain

Becky, the new indie thriller from directors Cary Murnion and Jonathan Milott (Bushwick, Cooties), earned lots of attention for casting the frequently goofy Kevin James (Paul Blart: Mall Cop, Kevin Can Wait) as a straight-faced, menacing neo-Nazi villain who’s willing to murder a child to get what he wants. But that’s not the only compelling aspect of this film: the score, from composer Nima Fakhrara (Detroit: Become Human, Crypto), uses several unconventional instruments, including children’s ...

‘7500’ Trailer: Joseph Gordon-Levitt Tries to Navigate an Airplane Hijacking

In the early 2010s, Joseph Gordon-Levitt was everywhere. You’d be hard pressed to find a romantic-comedy or a big action flick without his boyishly good-looking face attached. If the “Internet’s Boyfriend” term had existed when he was around, he was it. But suddenly, he kind of disappeared. Maybe Gordon-Levitt was just flying too far under our radars, but the last time anyone saw him in a major feature film was the poorly received 2016 film Snowden. Well it turns out he was flying high this who...

’12 Hour Shift’ Review: A Botched Black Market Deal Turns Into a Bloody Hospital Thriller [Tribeca]

“Did you ever smell sadness?” Films may not be able to give off scents (yet), but 12 Hour Shift, with its washed out yellow walls and harsh fluorescent lighting, practically reeks of anesthetic and musty hospital bedsheets. And a little bit of sadness. But that sadness is quickly overtaken by the bizarro bloodbath that unfolds in Bea Grant‘s stylish, darkly comic thriller. Angela Bettis stars Mandy, a worn out ER nurse working at a small rural hospital in 1999 Arkansas. Tired, rail-thin, and...
