Stanley Kubrick
Last year, we rolled up our sleeves and dove into The Lost & Unmade Projects Of Stanley Kubrick, detailing the numerous movies that the legendary filmmaker developed or considered over the course of his career. But if you don't have time to flip through that feature (though you should), this 20-minute documentary, "The Unfinished Films Of Stanley Kubrick," does a good job of highlighting some of the more well known movies he never got to.

Horror films have recently found a new way to scare, by delivering bite-sized servings of terror. Recent successes like "V/H/S" and "The ABCs Of Death" have shown filmmakers getting creative within a smaller format, and the upcoming "Sanitarium" promises genre fans another dose of thrills in a contained package.

The problem with movies based on video games (or movies that try to capture the video game experience) is that they always come across like watching someone else play a video game. These movies might have budget-pushing effects and plotlines that mimic the follow-the-clues narrative of most games, but they never succeed in bringing the viewer into a fantastical, wholly imagined world in quite the same way. “Silent Hill: Revelation,” based on a series of Japanese horror survival games about a spooky town filled with ghostly apparitions, is one step worse than most of these video game movies. It feels less like a game and more like what happens when you leave your PlayStation on and it becomes a kind of dim screensaver. If we had a controller in our hand, we would probably throw it at the screen.

With Paris and New York City getting auteur-driven portraits with "Paris, je t'aime" and "New York, I Love You," those movies have inspired producers and filmmakers from around the world to develop their own city-driven projects. And while omnibus films have been percolating in places like Rio, Shanghai, Jerusalem, Berlin and Sydney over the past few years, it's Tbilisi in Georgia that have come out of the gate with the next effort.

Are omnibus movies about different cities wearing themselves thin? “Paris, je ta’ime” had its moments and was a novel idea with a cutesy title, but since then we’ve had the insufferable “New York, I Love You” and the uneven “Tokyo!” And unfortunately, it seems producers in cities around the world are now looking to boost their profile by taking on the same format.

The spirit of Tommy Wiseau is alive and well in the new, Malcolm McDowell-produced faith-centric indie “Suing The Devil." There’s no way to sugarcoat the fact that McDowell, who stars as the titular Beelzebub, has over the course of his storied career, gone from working with Stanley Kubrick and Lindsay Anderson to slumming it in a low-rent Christian film that makes “Fireproof” look like “Dr. Zhivago.”

“PUNISH!” and “GARBAGE DAY!” are probably all expressions that fans of the “Silent Night, Deadly Night” films are used to hearing, as they are some of the key moments of gory absurdity in this increasingly convoluted and ridiculous series of slasher films. For those who don’t regularly attend midnight screenings at their local repertory theatre, the series started with the release of the controversial first film in 1984, which chronicled a disturbed individual who once saw his parents massacred by a man in a Santa suit on Christmas and is set off on a mad killing spree many years later as he unleashes bloodshed and many repressed memories of that evil bearded man. It has spawned four equally ridiculous sequels that featured survivors or various other individuals following in his footsteps. Well, like most horror properties with even a miniscule cult following, “Silent Night, Deadly Night,” is coming back with a fresh new coat of blood red paint.
