The Ranger movie

The Ranger
Directed by Jenn Wexler
Written by Jenn Wexler, Giaco Furino
Starring Chloë Levine, Granit Lahu, Jeremy Pope, Bubba Weiler, Amanda Grace Benitez, Jeremy Holm, Larry Fessenden
Glass Eye Pix
Release date: August 17, 2018 (NY)

33 years ago to the day Dan O’Bannon’s punk rock horror classic, Return of the Living Dead opened in theaters. The spirit of that film is alive and well in The Ranger, a new punk rock horror film that opens in New York today, and had its premiere last night at the IFC Center in the village. The Ranger is the first film directed by Jenn Wexler, a producer with Larry Fessenden’s Glass Eye Pix. It was co-written and based on a script from Giaco Furino. Together, they not only kept the punk rock tradition of ROTLD alive, but created a whole new monster, and with it one of the year’s best horror films. Combining a kickass punk soundtrack, a psychedelic filming style, and one of the creepiest modern day bad guys in horror, The Ranger is a must see that leaves genre fans howling.

High Noon review

High Noon
Directed by Fred Zinnemann
Starring: Gary Cooper, Grace Kelly, Lloyd Bridges, Thomas Mitchell, Lon Chaney Jr., Katy Jurado, Ian MacDonald, Lee Van Clef, Robert J. Wilke, Sheb Wooley
Theatrical Release Date: July 30, 1952
Available now on Blu-ray

There it is, that faint, catchy tune written by Dimitri Tiomkin and Ned Washington, and sung by Tex Ritter that continuously makes its way back in High Noon. It’s beautiful, it’s in nearly every frame, and finally is pervading the entire film, pretty much conquering it. Do not forsake me oh my darling. There it is again. It’s a most haunting tune that astonishingly places us inside the head of Will Kane (Gary Cooper), a well respected marshal of a well established Wild West town desperately seeking to maintain its civilization rather than succumbing again to barbarism.

Hell House LLC II: The Abaddon Hotel

If you’re a big fan of horror, chances are you’ve seen or at least heard of Hell House LLC by now. The found footage flick followed a group of people building the next great haunted attraction. It just happened to be in a building that did not require any staged haunts to be terrifying.

Now a sequel to the movie is on the way, titled Hell House LLC II: The Abaddon Hotel. Terror Films released an official trailer for the sequel earlier this month, and also recently shared the opening scene from the movie.

An All-Nighter At Cinema Arts Centre’s ‘Up All Night’ Horror Movie Marathon 2018

Up All Night Horror Movie Marathon

It was something I did often in high school and college – the ol’ all-night movie marathon. As a 36-year-old married adult with 2 children, the concept of staying up all through the night watching movies is something that sounds unreasonable and completely illogical. But then I saw the advertisement pop up in my Facebook feed… the Cinema Arts Centre in Huntington, Long Island, NY, was hosting an all-night horror movie marathon. It took me over a week of intense debate as to whether I should do it, but on Saturday morning, with my wife’s permission (of course), I purchased my ticket for their 2018 Up All Night “Pay to Get Out” Horror Movie Marathon and headed out to meet my fate… 8 horror films in 13 hours, one last great All Nighter… for now.

Spider-Man Game PS4

Marvel’s highly anticipated Spider-Man game, which comes from Spyro, Ratchet & Clank, Resistance, and Sunset Overdrive developer Insomniac Games, is still a few weeks from release. But that’s not stopping PlayStation from releasing an early launch trailer.

The trailer is a gameplay launch trailer, to be specific, though it doesn’t show a whole lot of actual gameplay unfortunately. Still, it’s a fun watch. There’s also a second video for excited fans to enjoy, and it’s even better. It shows a lot more gameplay footage, all set to a conversation between J. Jonah Jameson and someone who’s named Peter Pa…tterson on Jameson’s radio show (or podcast?) called “Just the Facts.”

You can read much more about the game and check out both of the videos below.

A little over a year ago we found out that Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, The World’s End, and Paul stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost were starting their own film and television production company called Stolen Picture.

An official trailer for the movie—which stars Asa Butterfield, Finn Cole, Hermione Corfield, Michael Sheen, and Pegg and Frost—was released last week. And if you’re like me and missed it then, you can check it out below now, along with a poster and the official synopsis.

Aretha Franklin

Aretha Franklin, a pioneer of R&B and Gospel music and who rightly earned the title of Queen of Soul, died today at her home in Detroit after a battle with pancreatic cancer, according to CNN. She was 76.

The death of Franklin signifies an end to a life that was rich and robust, as colorful and full of memorable musical art as the woman herself. For over six decades, the singer’s instantly recognizable voice stretched to the emotional stratosphere and she became a titan not only in music, but provided a soundtrack, especially in her early superstar years, for a turbulent civil rights movement that was just at its peak during the late 1960s.
