New Trailer and Release Details for End of Watch

Set to hit theaters, from Open Road Films, on September 28 is End of Watch, which is written and directed by the David Ayer, who was the screenwriter of Training Day. The film stars Jake Gylenhaal and Michael Pena as young police officers patrolling the streets of South Central LA, and I have the new trailer to share with you. To me it has a definite Southland feel to it, which is not a bad thing.

Filthy Review - Mother's Day

Mother’s Day (2010)

Review by Jude Felton

The world, it would appear, it awash with the movies of Darren Lynn Bousman right now. At the time of writing this we have just seen the release to DVD of his 2011 movie 11-11-11, his latest horror/musical The Devil’s Carnival is currently on tour at theaters around the States, and now, somewhat belatedly, sees the release to DVD/Blu-ray combo pack of his 2010 movie Mother’s Day. Quite why it took so long to get a Stateside release is beyond me, as it is already available in the UK, and first and foremost it is rather good.

Filthy Review - The Theatre Bizarre

The Theatre Bizarre (2011)

Review by Jude Felton

Horror, as with any other genre of film, tends to go through cycles. Whether it be companies cashing in on a successful franchise, yeah I’m looking at you Saw-clones, or just a strange twist of fate, it happens and more frequently than you might think. At present it seems to be the resurgence of the anthology, with recent releases of Chillerama and Little Deaths through to upcoming collections like The ABC’s of Death and The Profane Exhibit. All have one thing in coming, and that is that they are a tricky thing to master, as all will tend to get judged on their weakest link, so it is up to all involved to deliver the goods.

Epic Filthy Review - My Way

My Way (Mei Wai) (2011)

Review by Jude Felton

If you have read any of my reviews you will know that I am a fan of Korean horror and thriller flicks. My Way though was only the second war film that I had seen from that nation, with the other one being Tae Guk Gi: The Brotherhood of War from 2004, which incidentally is also directed by the director of My Way; Kang Je-Kyu. That was a stunning movie in itself and now he has followed it up with another sumptuous war epic, and it really is epic.
