New Red Band Trailer Released for The Belko Experiment

A new teaser dropped today for the James Gunn’s The Belko Experiment.  The film is directed by Greg McLean and features Sean Gunn, John C. McGinley and Michael Rooker. For many who suffer through corporate America every day, the survival of the fittest concept is all too real, and The Belko Experiment looks to take that to another, much darker level.

Some may describe this latest trailer as mind blowing, however, it shows the more graphic and violent side of the film. Will it be a splatter fest or a well thought out dark comedy? While the premise of the highly-anticipated horror flick sounds like The Purge meets Office Space, fans will be the judge on whether or not the film is able pull off the perfect amount of humor and terror. read more

Jordan Peele’s Successful Horror Debut: Get Out Movie Review

Fans are often skeptical when their favorite artist attempts to experiment in a new genre.  Jordan Peele has always been known for comedy, specifically Comedy Central’s Key and Peele sketch comedy show.  The success of Key and Peele is primarily attributed to a brand of comedy that skewers social and cultural conventions (like all great sketch comedy does) and is willing to “cross the line” to make a joke and, more importantly, when it comes to satire, make a point. Although Peele’s directorial debut happens to come from the world of horror and not comedy, Get Out is an impressive and successful first film from the director, that is able to scare audiences while also delivering bitting social commentary about the perception of race in America. read more
