    Trailer: Darkly Comic Slamdance Thriller “GOLDBERG & EISENBERG”

    Israel’s entrance into the international genre cinema game has been bold, fearless and absolutely thrilling. RABIES and subsequently this year’s BIG BAD WOLVES from directors Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado are fierce, absurd thrillers chronicling how we never fail to get in our own way. And now, currently making the festival circuit is Oren Carmi’s GOLDBERG & EISENBERG, a too close for comfort piece exploring similar themes with jet black humor and harsh, Lynchian style. Its next appearance, after making a big impression at Fantastic Fest and Screamfest LA is Park City’s alt-cinema celebration, Slamdance.

    Q&A: Matt Weinhold, The Comedian With a Collection To Die For

    To many horror fans, the weight of your fandom is measured by the size of your collection. And for good reason: as conventions start growing with record-number attendances around the country, blue-blooded genre nuts are separating themselves from the rookies by hitting up the myriad booths of memorabilia and artwork that take up the exhibitors floor.

    “RITUAL” (Movie Review)

    A heavy sense of dread is cast over films in which terrible things befall characters that inhabit a sunny, 50s-esque world. It’s not an unfamiliar tactic, coating events in a false, nostalgic cheer that, by contrast, emphasizes the evil that men do (and have always done) even more. Or, maybe it just hurts to see violence toward someone introduced in such an adorable bathing suit. Whatever the case, writer/director Mickey Keating opens RITUAL on such an aesthetic—but not before a Gaspar Noé homage/onscreen warning of the violence to come—in which the film’s leads romantically meet on the beach. It’s an ideal moment, a single push in as the two flirt, that’s sandwiched between that explicit cautioning and their dialogue drowned out by foreboding noise. This being a horror film, we know that perfect moment cannot last, and here it is dissolving before us. Only the image remains, like a memory. Which, ultimately it is; Lovely (Lisa Marie Summerscales) and Tom’s (Dean Cates) courtship doesn’t even make it through the opening credits.
