Last night saw the premiere of Eli Roth's ambitious cannibalism-vs-activism scare picture The Green Inferno at the Toronto International Film Festival, and along came the announcement of a sequel.
I like the sound of this one, though I'm also quite sure it will put me off my dinner.
Jafar Panahi may be banned from making films but that hasn't stopped him one bit. And he's making great films too.
A fresh new batch of images featuring Clive Owen, Rebecca Hall, Juliette Binoche, Maiwenn and many more.
Woody Allen steps in front of the camera to act in John Turturro's new film and Kevin Kline reclines in a bed as Errol Flynn.
They don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows.
The TIFF YouTube account keeps expanding, just now adding the first trailer for Brian DePalma‘s “erotic thriller” Passion. 99.9% of films labelled as erotic thrillers have failed to satisfy on either count, but surely DePalma will manage one or the other?

Frederic Jardin‘s high-concept action thriller Sleepless Night played at the Toronto Film Festival a couple of weeks back to enthusiastic response.

Here’s the trailer for Francis Ford Coppola‘s gothic horror gimmick picture Twixt, formerly Twixt Now and Sunrise, with Val Kilmer and Elle Fanning, and Ben Chaplin as Edgar Allen Poe. This is not, appropriately enough, either of the edits shown at Comic-Con.

Alex de la Iglesia’s Balada Triste de Trompeta, or The Last Circus, is expected to redeem the director’s reputation after the inert blob that was The Oxford Murders. The scary clowns on the film’s poster, as you can see above, are definitely a good start. Shudder. Shiver. Trickle. I’m also intrigued by the film’s premise […]
