Phasers weren’t the only things set to stun when it was announced that Star Trek director J.J. Abrams would also be directing Episode VII in the Star Wars franchise. Fans of the two properties — who have long feuded over which franchise enjoyed true sci-fi superiority — did not quite know what to make of the same man now commanding both ships, so to speak. But what does the most famous face from Star Trek think about Abrams defecting over to the dark side…so to speak? READ FULL STORY

A few years ago, Randy Moore embarked on a family holiday to Disney World in Orlando. Moore had visited the theme park as a child and had warm memories of the place. Moore’s nurse wife, however, had never been to a Disney theme park before and found the experience an unsettling one. “She couldn’t take it,” recalls Moore. “We were at some princess fair and it was a really muggy day and all the kids were screaming and demanding their parents buy them ridiculously expensive plastic wands. It was bonkers. At one point, my wife looked at me and she said, ‘This is worse than working on the psych floor at the hospital.'”
Drafthouse Films to rerelease whacked-out '70s horror film 'The Visitor' this Halloween -- EXCLUSIVE POSTER
What do legendary directors John Huston and Sam Peckinpah, Poseidon Adventure actress Shelley Winters, Lance Henriksen, a “cosmic Christ figure,” a demonic eight year old girl, and the fate of the universe have in common? They all feature in the obscure 1979 sci-fi-horror film The Visitor, which Drafthouse Films has announced it will rerelease in remastered form this Halloween weekend (a VOD/digital and home entertainment release will follow in January of next year.)
In the new comedy-horror film Bad Milo! Gillian Jacobs plays the wife of a stressed-out white collar drone (Ken Marino) who discovers he has a demon living in his butt. Yes, you read that right — she spells her first name with a “g.” (Ha! But, seriously, that is who she plays in the film.)
So, what was the point in the Bad Milo! shoot when the Community star most thought, “I bet Dame Judi Dench has never had to do this”? “Throwing dildos at an ass-demon puppet,” laughs Jacobs. “And we shot in a basement of a church, which just added a whole other level of wrong.”
Directed and cowritten by first-time filmmaker Jacob Vaughan, Bad MIlo! is released today in select cinemas and is also available to view via iTunes and VOD. In addition to Jacobs and Marino, the movie stars Patrick Warburton, Steve Zissis, Mary Kay Place, Stephen Root, Kumail Nanjiani, and Big Lebowski nihilist Peter Stormare.
Below, Jacobs talks more about Bad MIlo! while gamely ignoring the egregious amount of times your writer uses the phrase “butt-demon” in the course of our conversation

Jonathan Glazer’s sci-fi thriller Under the Skin, which was picked up by A24 Films at this month’s Toronto Film Festival, stars Scarlett Johansson as a human-eating alien who specializes (not surprisingly) in seduction.
The trailer for the film shows Johansson put on her red lipstick and pick up what we have to assume is one of her victims. But what follows isn’t as easy to decipher. As all dialogue fades out about halfway through the trailer, we watch as things seem to spin out of control. See what you can make out of the trailer for Under the Skin, Glazer’s first film since 2004’s Birth: READ FULL STORY
Is that a space zombie harassing Ray Donovan in the international trailer for the new science fiction movie, The Last Days on Mars? Honestly, we haven’t a clue (although it looks like that’s the case). To find out for sure, horror fans will have to wait until October 31, when the debut movie from director Ruairi Robinson will be available on VOD, or December 6, the date it debuts in cinemas
But why not make your own educated guess after checking out the clip below? READ FULL STORY
From the Transformers movies to The World’s End to Frances Ha (probably), you can hardly move these days without seeing films about killer robots. But only the World War II-set Frankenstein’s Army boasts killer Zombots. This unforgettably grotesque, one-of-a-kind, found-footage horror movie stars Luke Newberry and Joshua Sasse as Russian soldiers on a mission behind German lines and Karel Roden as a crazed descendant of Baron von Frankenstein who has created an army of half-zombie, half-machine monstrosities.
The demented work of first-time filmmaker Richard Raaphorst, Frankenstein’s Army is unleashed to Blu-ray and DVD today. But the brave of heart can check out an exclusive, mayhem-filled, and strong-language-featuring clip below.

Filmmakers don’t get much more fantastic — in every sense — than Terry Gilliam, the agreeably bonkers auteur whose filmography includes Time Bandits, Brazil, and Twelve Monkeys. So it seems appropriate Fantastic Fest has decided to close this year’s event with his new movie, The Zero Theorem. The Christoph Waltz-starring film, which concerns a reclusive computer genius plagued with existential angst, will screen at the Austin, Tx.-based genre festival on September 26.
