There’s good news for horror fans: Maniac, a new slasher directed by Franck Khalfoun (Wrong Turn at Tahoe) and co-written and produced by Alexandre Aja (Haute Tension, The Hills Have Eyes), is finally going to get a limited release in the US this summer. We’ve been looking forward to this one ever since the first six suspenseful minutes were released online as a teaser.
Elijah Wood is at the center of this film – literally – as Frank, the introverted owner of a mannequin store who goes off the deep end after the death of his mother and begins killing and scalping women, using their hair as gruesome decorations for his mannequins. Maniac‘s unusual quirk is that it appears to be filmed entirely from the first-person perspective of Frank, with Wood only appearing onscreen when the character catches sight ...

Most concert movies are pretty cut-and-dry in their approach, in terms of how they glorify their musician/musical group subject and attempt to make them seem relatable at the same time (example: Justin Bieber: Never Say Never). Recent additions to the (genre?) have attempted to mix things up in… curious ways – like having the cast of Glee remain in character throughout the Glee: The 3D Concert Movie – and the upcoming Metallica Through the Never will go even further, by weaving a full-blown fictional narrative into the mix.
Metallica features 3D footage of the iconic heavy metal band performing live for a sold-out arena, in combination with a fictional storyline that revolves around their band crew member, Trip (Dane DeHaan), undertaking a mission for the band when “he unexpectedly has his life turned completely upside down.” DeHaan, of course, is an up-and-comer, thanks ...

Last week ABC, CBS, CW, NBC and Fox announced their new 2013 fall line-ups, including shows from J.J. Abrams (Almost Human), Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (Sleepy Hollow) and Joss Whedon (Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.). But with over 40+ new shows set to air this year, it can be a bit challenging to watch every single one.
So, to help make things a bit easier, here’s a list of 10 best new TV show trailers for the Fall 2013 season. Now, to be fair, great pilot trailers aren’t always indicative of the quality of the series. However, what great trailers do show is a series’ potential to tell great stories in the future.

With the highly-anticipated release of Man of Steel just weeks away, the publicity machine is in overdrive and the rumor mill is in full force. We have featurettes, a new Zod-centric trailer, and an interesting, in-depth interview with director Zack Snyder, producer Christopher Nolan and star Henry Cavill on the deeper themes of their Superman reboot. Plus, there’s already speculation on what else could be in store for a proposed DC cinematic universe.
The bulk of all this attention is turning specifically to a possible Justice League movie. There are broad hints that Man of Steel will somehow launch DC’s movie continuum, and while there are certain problems with notion of a DC superhero team-up, Henry Cavill recently addressed a topic which, for some reason, has not been widely discussed (outside of geek ...

As a season draws to a close, some shows choose to use the penultimate show as a buildup to the finale, hoping to spark an interest with viewers and pump up the ratings, while others stick with the usual episodic format, relying on a shocking trailer for the finale to lure viewers in. Psych does a little bit of both in this week’s episode, “Nip and Suck It,” though mostly it sticks to the episodic format.
Over the course of season 7, each of the main characters has had his or her turn in the episode spotlight and this time around it’s Henry (Corbin Bernsen) who serves as the show’s main focal point. The story builds ...
