In 2001, writer-directors Lucky McKee and Chris Sivertson killed off a group of cheerleaders in All Cheerleaders Die. Now, they’ve done it again in a remake of their own film, which hits theaters Friday and is also available on VOD. So why do the pair hate cheerleaders so much? READ FULL STORY

Fed up with Hollywood’s fondness for CGI? Nostalgic for the days of practical effects-heavy horror movies like John Carpenter’s The Thing and the early Alien movies? Then you’re going to want to check out the trailer for the new, Lance Henriksen-starring creature feature Harbinger Down.
The trailer for Eli Roth’s The Green Inferno starts out like an educational nature documentary, rolling facts about deforestation across panoramic shots of the Amazon. When a plane carrying a group of eager young idealists hoping to save the rainforest crashes into the jungle, it quickly turns into the kind of clip you’d expect from an Eli Roth film. Meaning: We get all of the signs that the natives will invariably torture the well-meaning outsiders both mentally and physically (this is the man behind the Hostel films, after all).
The inspiration behind this thriller is the controversial 1980 Italian film Cannibal Holocaust, which contained graphic violence and is still banned in several countries. As in its predecessor, The Green Inferno features indigenous people onscreen. Roth’s trailer even boasts that the native tribe in his movie has never before been filmed, which will inevitably bring up arguments over the extent to which this horror flick is exploitative.

The bigfoot legend gets a found footage twist in the new horror movie Willow Creek. Directed by comedian-turned-filmmaker Bobcat Goldthwait — who has described it as “The Blair-Squatch Project” — the movie stars Bryce Johnson (Pretty Little Liars) as a bigfoot believer who heads deep into California’s Six Rivers National Forest on a quest to record the mythical beast. He’s also accompanied by his reluctant girlfriend, played by Alexie Gilmore.
X-Men: Days of Future Past is easily cementing its spot as the top earner this Memorial Day weekend, bringing in $90.7 million by Sunday and proving that nothing kicks off the unofficial start of summer quite like the time-honored tradition of seeing superheroes and villains duke it out for the good of the country.
The time-travel film — directed by Bryan Singer and starring Patrick Stewart, Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellan, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, and Jennifer Lawrence — is now on track to make at least $110 million over the long weekend, making it the second-largest holiday opening for the Fox franchise. (X-Men: The Last Stand took in $1o2.7 million in its first three days of release during Memorial Day weekend 2006). As expected, X-Men: Days of Future Past did well among international moviegoers, opening in 119 countries and territories for a global revenue of $261.78 million. READ FULL STORY

“Nobody shoots a car the way Aussies do.” So says Quentin Tarantino in the must-see 2008 Ozploitation documentary Not Quite Hollywood. And QT’s words are reconfirmed by director Greg McLean’s new film Wolf Creek 2 — the sequel to his 2005 tale of terrible-things-happening-in-the-Australian-outback — which owes as much to the likes of The Road Warrior (and Steven Spielberg’s classic auto-thriller Duel) as it does the torture porn genre.
