En febrero de 1983 se publicaba Beat It, single del mítico álbum Thriller de Michael Jackson. Posiblemente una de las canciones más famosas y redondas del “rey del pop”, este clásico llegaba firmado bajo la habitual producción de Quincy Jones con Jackson. Pero más importante resulta que esta bomba fuera escrita por el…
Last week, we saw the poster and some images for Midnight Special, an upcoming thriller from director Jeff Nichols (Take Shelter) that takes inspiration from Spielberg’s scifi classics, including E.T. and Close Encounters of the Third Kind. Now we’ve got a trailer that makes us even more excited for the movie.
Even if you don’t know the name Rick Baker, you know his work. I guarantee it. From Star Wars to An American Werewolf in London, Men in Black to Ed Wood, Gremlins, Thriller, Hellboy, Baker’s work with make-up and effects is legendary. He’s got seven Oscars to prove it and now, a tribute art show.
Ah, the high-tech break-in—an expected scene in any contemporary thriller, and that goes double for a movie set in the future. In Narcopolis, the debut feature from UK writer-director Justin Trefgarne, a pair of hackers go through the ol’ breaking-into-the system routine, with an insanely modern twist.
The rumors are true, Charlie Brooker’s tech-fi thriller Black Mirror is returning as a new Netflix original series. And it’ll likely be just as thought-provoking and chilling as the original.
Prosopagnosia is a cognitive disorder that prevents sufferers from being able to recognize faces. In this short film, a woman is found murdered in her apartment, and the only witness is her best friend, who suffers from prosopagnosia. Naturally, not everything is as it seems.
Oh jeez, you're saying. Another hitman movie? But! Australian entry Kill Me Three Times stars Simon Pegg, noted funnyguy, as the ruthless bloke with the gun. And wisecracks. Watch the red band trailer below, and make sure not to use all your matches to set off that explosion.
There's nothing subtle about Vice, an astonishingly unoriginal thriller that plays off familiar fears that violent video games will turn players into real-world trigger-happy sociopaths. The movie is now viewable on demand; some spoilers ahead.
Horror director John Landis has spilled the beans on his plans for a Thriller, 3D re-release. Landis told the New York Daily News, "there is something happening with Thriller. It is going to reappear in a highly polished and three-dimensional way that is very exciting on the big screen." Hell yes. And they have plans…
If you don't care about the Mileys and the Biebers like most sane humans of this world, one of the most iconic music videos to you is probably Michael Jackson's Thriller. Or maybe Billie Jean. Or is it Smooth Criminal? Beat It? Actually, it can be five more MJ creations. But Thriller is somethin'. And it's even more…
We've seen Michael Jackson's "Thriller" video reenacted by LEGO minifigs before, but Annette Jung takes a different approach, creating a stop-motion animation using LEGO bricks as pixels.
Hemlock Grove just gave us our latest iteration of the on-screen werewolf, but it's by no means the strangest. Here are some of the odder takes on these furry faced children of the night.
As night falls on Belgrade, you and your team of special agents go on high alert. You've got the gadgetry of Bond and the competence of Bourne, but this is a shadowy international conspiracy you're up against: drug lords, corporate masterminds, bought politicians, crooked Interpol agents, and vampires. The bad kind.…
What if one of the schemers of Alfred Hitchcock's movies had superstrength or psychic powers or the ability to keep witnesses from delivering exposition in front of the police?

This weekend sees the release of two self-aware takes on the horror genre: Cabin in the Woods and Detention. So this is a great time to pay tribute to the long tradition of meta horror films that have winked at the audience and poked fun at the tropes of the genre.
MTV turns 30 today. How old! Also how historic; in three decades, the network revolutionized media, turned heads inside and out, and struggled to remain relevant. But one thing should be obvious now: it was never just about music.
In Italian director Dario Argento's 1996 horror-thriller The Stendhal Syndrome, his own daughter Asia Argento stars as Anna Manni, a detective investigating a series of brutal sex killings in Rome and Florence. So begins perhaps the most awkward take-your-daughter-to-work day in cinema history.
At last month's Denver Pridefest, a trio of dancers reenacted Michael Jackson's zombie-stomp number "Thriller." The performance would've been otherwise serviceable if it hadn't been for a flailing werewolf who appeared perpetually on the verge of forgetting his choreography.
Is it wrong to feel envious of an animated Autobot's dance moves? I'm never going to feel the same way about the Transformers again. [Technabob]
Last night the gleeks premiered their mash-up of Michael Jackson's "Thriller" with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs' "Heads Will Roll".
