Another Time

I’ve always been a sucker for time travel stories. I get swept up in the romance, history, fantasy and drama that accompanies all great time jumping narratives. The protagonists’ quests are always high stakes as danger looms and adventure abounds. Usually, they are driven by love or the need to save history. Although I am … Continued

How the World First Met Bigfoot

Former Film Threat contributing editor Phil Hall’s new book “The Weirdest Movie Ever Made: The Patterson-Gimlin Bigfoot Film,” details the history of the 59-second footage purportedly showing the elusive Sasquatch walking at Bluff Creek in the northern California woods. This excerpt of the book details how Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin, the ex-rodeo riders from … Continued

Monsoon

Letting go of someone you loved is never an easy thing to do. Monsoon, by Director Miguel Duran, explores this touchy subject matter in his latest project. Childhood friends John (Austin Lyon) and Sarah (Katherine Hughes) are spending their last summer together before John leaves his small town in Arizona for the big city of … Continued

Her/His Take on Amy Schumer’s I Feel Pretty – Part 2

As discussed in part one of Film Threat’s thematic breakdown of I Feel Pretty, office politics and perception play an integral role in the Amy Schumer starring comedy. However, they are tertiary elements, chiefly used for subplots or characterizations of supporting players. Film Threat contributors Bobby Lepire and Tiffany Tchobanian will now discuss the key … Continued

The Theta Girl

We often find ourselves apologizing for low budget films, pointing out some shining moment in an otherwise poor showing of production value, cinematography, script, acting, sound. Often a brilliant concept is hampered from full expression by these constraints, and it falls to us to point out what’s beautiful in a beautiful mess. Occasionally though, the … Continued

Love Gilda

Watching comedian Gilda Radner, you can’t help but admire her talent, adore her many characters, and fall in love with her all at the same time. At eight-years-old, I’d stay up late on a Saturday night to watch Saturday Night Live (usually making it only to midnight) and marvel at Radner’s amazing characters Rosanne Rosannadanna, … Continued

Diane

Diane is the latest from Being Michael Madsen writer/director/producer Michael Mongillo. A short yet thoroughly entertaining ghost story/police procedural/Dogme 95 film; Diane is definitely worth the brief (118 mins), yet intense watch. The film takes place in the small fictional Connecticut town of New Britain (the film was actually shot in Hartford), where we first meet our … Continued

Rumor From Ground Control

I shall try my level-headed best to sum up the plot of the conspiracy thriller Rumor From Ground Control, but after watching the film, I am left perplexed. I’m still trying to piece together how the characters relate to each other, let alone find the logic in how the big reveal changes anything. Here’s what … Continued

Petey Wheatstraw

Petey Wheatstraw (Rudy Ray Moore), the devil’s son-in-law, has such magnificent powers that he can, and I quote, “take the fourth of July and put it in June.” When a child is playing catch and attempts to retrieve the ball when it rolls into the street, Petey Wheatstraw can freeze oncoming traffic to save the … Continued

Sorry For Your Loss

Elizabeth Olsen rises to the challenge of portraying Leigh Shaw, a rattled young widow consumed by grief in the Facebook Watch series, Sorry For Your Loss. We meet Leigh three months after the mysterious death her husband Matt (Mamoudou Athie) and quickly becomes a force to be reckoned with. Leigh’s honesty is refreshing albeit jarring, … Continued
