V/H/S: Viral Trailer


A sinister Ice Cream van steadily circles a neighbourhood, leaving death and destruction in its wake. As people come to watch, the ridiculous and crazy event connects several, complete strangers for a short time. Then, each group embarks on their own horrific adventure. 'Dante The Great' is an amateur magician who unwittingly comes into the possession of a cloak owned by Houdini. Whilst it gives him magical powers and makes him famous, it also demands to be fed. There is also the tale of a scientist who creates a machine able to conjure portals to parallel dimensions, and finally, there is the story of a group of teenagers that head to Mexico for a party and encounter the living dead.

Tracks Trailer


Robyn is a free spirit with an unusual, not to mention dangerous, ambition to cross the 1,700 mile Australian desert from Alice Springs to reach the Indian Ocean accompanied by four camels and a dog. Mocked at by the Alice Springs locals, she starts to train camels on a farm and learn about survival in the wildnerness. By the time she is ready to embark on her journey, she is well equipped with the knowledge and tools of basic survival in a scorching desert. Before her trip, she meets a National Geographic photographer named Rick Smoland who promises to fund her trip as long as he can visit her on her journey to take photographs. Robyn's loneliness starts to overwhelm her and she has a brief romance with the photographer, but the real revelations are what she learns about herself along the way.

'Tracks' is based on the true memoirs of the same name written by the real Robyn Davidson who spent 9 months crossing the barren Australian sands. The movie has been directed by John Curran ('The Painted Veil', 'We Don't Live Here Anymore', 'Stone') and written by Marion Nelson, and it was nominated for awards at the Venice Film Festival and the London Film Festival last year. It is set for UK release on April 25th 2014.

The Killer Inside Me Review


Good
Being based on the Jim Thompson novel, this could never be a cheery romp.

Indeed, Winterbottom keeps Thompson's bleakness intact, leaving us little to engage with. But the film has an earth beauty and is a haunting look at the dark side of being human.

Lou Ford (Affleck) is a small-town deputy in 1950s West Texas, where he's still struggling with childhood demons and feelings of inadequacy. Even though he has an adoring girlfriend (Hudson), he starts a torrid fling with a prostitute (Alba) who lives on the edge of town. And as he sets in motion an elaborate revenge plot, we discover that underneath his nice guy exterior Lou is a sadistic murderer. And he's only barely staying one step ahead of the investigators (including Bower, Koteas and Baker).
