James Rolfe is famous for reviewing video games on his Angry Video Game Nerd web series. Now, Rolfe is taking his alter ego into films with the just-released-to-VOD Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie, a comedy in which he tries to find out if Atari really did bury millions of the copies of the notorious E.T. video game at a landfill site in Alamogordo, N.M.

Fantastic Fest kicks off in Austin, Texas, on Thursday, Sept. 18, and boasts an impressive lineup of films, including the Keanu Reeves-starring hitman thriller John Wick, Kevin Smith‘s man-walrus horror fable Tusk, and the world premiere of Joe Lynch‘s action extravaganza Everly (of which, much more later in the week).
In the new action movie John Wick, Keanu Reeves plays an ex-hitman who comes out of retirement to track down the gangsters who have taken everything from him. The first trailer for the film just turned up on the interwebs, featuring both mucho mayhem and a lot of what we hope to be deliberately tongue-in-cheek hard-boiled-homaging dialog. Our favorite exchange? “How good’s your laundry?” “No one’s that good.”
The subject of marriages going awry is a movie staple. But the new horror film Honeymoon—which is released Friday in theatres, on demand, and on iTunes—sets a new record for a legally-recognized coupling heading south, in terms of sheer terrifying weirdness.
The debut feature from Leigh Janiak, the movie stars Rose Leslie from Game of Thrones and Harry Treadaway from Penny Dreadful as the vacationing newlyweds. Get a taste of the film’s unnerving atmosphere in the exclusive (and expletive-featuring) clip below.
In the new horror film At the Devil’s Door, a young woman played by Awkward star Ashley Rickards makes a deal with the Devil, and it has terrifying consequences for pretty much every character in the movie, including a pair of sisters played by Catalina Sandino Moreno (Maria Full of Grace) and Naya Rivera (Glee).
How exactly do you go about making a film in which one man attempts to turn another man into a walrus? That it is not a question any member of the human race ever considered for hundreds of thousands of years. Then writer, director, and semi-professional pothead Kevin Smith decided his next project, Tusk, would tackle that exact subject.
Fantastic Fest today announced the third and final wave of programming for this year’s genre film event, which takes place in Austin, Texas, Sept. 18-25. The films added to the schedule for the festival’s tenth anniversary bash include the Daniel Radcliffe-starring Horns, the Elijah Wood-starring Open Windows, and the Ryan Murphy-produced The Town That Dreaded Sundown, a remake of the 1975 horror movie of the same name whose trailer was also released Wednesday. Another new, not-to-be-missed addition: director David Gregory’s documentary Lost Soul—The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley’s Island of Dr. Moreau, which concerns Stanley’s ultimately disastrous attempt to adapt H.G. Wells’ classic sci-fi novel.
Waiting for Hollywood to make a movie about The Black Widow? Or Wonder Woman? Or any female character from any comic book? Then direct your attention towards The Scribbler.
Lou Taylor Pucci (the Evil Dead remake) stars in the new movie Spring as a man who, following the death of his mother, travels to Italy and meets a beautiful young woman played by Nadia Hilker. Does the course of true love run smooth? Having seen the film’s trailer, seems safe to tick the box marked “Absolutely not.”
The Daniel Radcliffe-starring Horns, the horror anthology sequels V/H/S Viral and ABCs of Death 2, and the documentary Lost Soul — which concerns the infamous production of box-office bomb The Island of Dr. Moreau — will all play at this year’s Los Angeles genre festival Beyond Fest, which announced its lineup today. Other notable attractions include a screening of Halloween attended by both director John Carpenter and star Jamie Lee Curtis, another documentary called My Life Directed By Nicholas Winding Refn from the titular Drive filmmaker’s wife, and the terror tale Starry Eyes, in which an actress’ desperate ambition leads her down a very dark path indeed (we’ll say no more!).
