Just maybe leave the skyscraper-hopping to the pros, OK?
2018’s Big Horror Film Trend: Inherited Trauma
By sheer coincidence, four of this year’s most poignant and effective horror stories are thematically connected by their exploration of familial mental illness and inherited trauma — the concept of traumatic experiences so deeply affecting that they are passed down from parents to children, whether by nature or nurture (or, in some cases, both). This idea is the driving force behind every terrifying moment in Hereditary, The Haunting of Hill House, Sharp Objects, and Halloween, all of which also happen to have another curious thing in common: Miniature houses.

Tom Cruise Feels the Need for Speed in ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ Set Photos
Tom Cruise is going back down the highway to the danger zone, and this time he’s taking a motorcycle — or at least that’s the case in these new set photos from Top Gun: Maverick, the long-awaited sequel to the high-flying ’80s hit, in which Cruise reprises his iconic role as the eponymous Maverick.

This super-sized five-minute extended sneak peek gives us new looks at Arthur Curry’s journey from being a son of the land and the sea (and Nicole Kidman, boom) to becoming the king of the ocean…but first, he has to bring Atlantis back to life (or something).
MoviePass Is Trying to Re-Enroll Subscribers Without Their Consent (Again)
MoviePass continues to suffer the longest, slowest, and most painful death in business history. Rather than admit defeat, the company is delaying the inevitable. According to an email sent out late last week, they’re still trying to trick former users into re-enrolling in their increasingly laughable service — by automatically enrolling them in a “test group” unless they choose to opt out.
‘Overlord’ Review: An Aggressively Boring Nazi Zombie Rehash
Let’s get this out of the way up front: Overlord is not, by any stretch of the imagination, a Cloverfield movie. There are monsters — both literal and figurative — and a sci-fi horror plot with a vague whiff of Lovecraft, but the latest film from J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot is entirely its own beast, for better or worse. Unfortunately in this case it’s the latter, as what was clearly intended to be a timely thriller fails to deliver on nearly every level.
‘Apostle’ Review: Dan Stevens Leads a Solid, But Unremarkable Cult Thriller
Gareth Evans captivated audiences in 2011 with The Raid, a pulse-pounding action-thriller that showcased his fascination with Indonesian martial arts as well as an exceptional knack for editing and fight choreography. For his fifth feature, Apostle, the Welsh filmmaker ditches many of the elements with which his name has become synonymous in favor of a grim fable about a religious cult in the early 20th century. It’s solid enough, though you’d probably never suspect Evans directed it if his name wasn’t in the credits.
