It starts as the story of Ip Man. He was born and raised in Foshan. From the time of his youth he took part in contest after contest of skill in and around the Gold Pavilion. Then, one day, Master Gong arrived from the Northeast to hold a retirement ceremony at the Gold Pavilion.

One retires, one steps forward. But who is entitled to be called a grandmaster? Ip Man? Master Gong's daughter, Gong Er? The self-described 'rascal' of the Northeast? Or is it Master Gong, who took the Northern martial arts to the South?

Some are looking to recover what belongs to them. Others want to achieve enlightenment. Then there are those who are only ever able to start fires and light lamps, and those who observe the currents of a chaotic and war-torn world from the sidelines.

Kungfu, a horizontal and a vertical, falling, rising, charging forward, carrying on. An era, rising and falling, scattering, regrouping, counter-attacking, advancing. It starts in Foshan. Its heart is in Dongbei. Its feet are on the ground in Hong Kong.

This can no longer just the story of Ip Man. It is the path of the grandmaster: Being. Knowing. Doing.

First Teaser Trailer for Supernatural Child Horror Movie 'The Prodigy'
The Prodigy Trailer

"I'm no longer speaking to Miles. I'm speaking to the person who has taken residence inside his body. You came uninvited." Orion has released the first teaser trailer for yet another new horror thriller, arriving in February early next year, titled The Prodigy. The only synopsis available is quite vague, but it's about a child who has some demonic force living inside of him. His mother becomes increasingly concerned about his odd behavior and decides to do something about it, which might just (probably will) make things worse. Jackson Robert Scott stars as Miles, with Taylor Schilling as his mother Sarah, and a cast including Colm Feore, Brittany Allen, Peter Mooney, and Olunike Adeliyi. This is a slick teaser, enough scares to pull you in and make your hair stand up, but without giving away anything else major yet. Check this out.

Palacios Trailer

"Maybe we could just hang out here for a little while? Just hang out" Freestyle Digital Media has released the first official trailer for Palacios, an indie drama filmed in St. Louis, Missouri that is heading straight-to-VOD later this fall. The drama is about a widowed woman and an inner-city teen who decide to spend the 4th of July holiday together on a Midwest city rooftop where they create an unlikely bond that forces them to stop ignoring the circumstances that placed them there together. The film also features a Boston terrier which has a key role in the story, joining them as they converse on the roof. Palacios is also a B&W film, and it was shot on location entirely in St. Louis, Missouri. I'm digging the vibe of this film. I'm certainly curious now, especially with that dog appearing so prominently on the new poster and in the trailer. Worth a watch.

Kat Graham in Trailer for Charming Netflix Film 'The Holiday Calendar'
The Holiday Calendar Trailer

"Your grandmother was convinced it had magical powers. She should've brought her to me." Netflix has unveiled an official trailer for a charming, cute new holiday romance film titled The Holiday Calendar, formerly known as Christmas Calendar until Netflix realized it would play better without specifically saying "Christmas". The film stars Kat Graham (from How It Ends, All Eyez on Me, and "The Vampire Diaries") as Abby Sutton, a talented but struggling photographer who inherits an antique advent calendar that may be predicting the future -- and pointing her toward love. Of course. The film also stars Quincy Brown, Ron Cephas Jones, Genelle Williams, Laura de Carteret, Ali Hassan, Romaine Waite, plus Ethan Peck. This looks extra cheesy and almost too sweet and not at all like something any cinephiles will watch.

Made by filmmaker Mike Burton, Century is about a cyclist embarking on his first 100 mile ride (aka "century ride") juxtaposed with his son taking his first ride on his bicycle. It's really wonderful - just watch.

Official Trailer for Horror 'Escape Room' About a Deadly Escape Room
Escape Room Trailer

"Well that's creepy as hell." Sony Pictures has debuted the first official trailer for the horror movie Escape Room, which has also gone under the title The Maze, now being released in the first few days of January in early 2019. I'm not surprised that Hollywood has decided to capitalize on the massive popularity of escape rooms by making a horror movie about one. How original. There isn't much of a plot synopsis for this one, but it seems to be a bit like the Saw movies where six strangers end up trapped in some high tech "Escape Room" - though this one isn't just a game, they will really die if they don't escape. The cast includes Taylor Russell, Logan Miller, Deborah Ann Woll, Jay Ellis, Tyler Labine, Nik Dodani, with Yorick van Wageningen. I like that this sends them from room to room, I just hope the whole movie isn't that campy.

Smuggling Hendrix Trailer

"Have you seen a dog pass by?" The Match Factory has released the first official trailer for an indie comedy titled Smuggling Hendrix, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival. The film is about a man from Cyprus planning to leave the island until his dog runs off and crosses the UN Buffer Zone that separates the "Greek South" from the "Turkish North". He must figure out how to bring him back across. Starring Adam Bousdoukos, Vicky Papadopoulou, Fatih Al, Toni Dimitriou, and zgr Karadeniz. "Through the simple story of a man who loses his dog, Smuggling Hendrix gives a vivid demonstration of how the fences we build, both real and imagined, between ourselves and others, can be broken down once we recognize the familiarity in the face of the unknown." I'm a dog lover so I'm totally into this, but it also looks damn good.

Official Trailer for Indie Comedy 'Unlovable' with Charlene deGuzman
Unlovable Trailer

"You have to save yourself, I can't do this for you." Orion Classics has debuted an official trailer for an indie romantic comedy titled Unlovable, which first premiered at the SXSW Film Festival earlier this year. The indie comedy is about a sex and love addicted woman who becomes friends with a reclusive man who lives nearby. As one of the quotes in this trailer states, it's not so much a film about love, rather a "feel-good film about the power of friendship." Charlene deGuzman (from "Big Time Rush" now making her feature film debut) stars as Joy, with a stellar ensemble cast including John Hawkes, Melissa Leo, Paul James, with Ellen Geer and Jake McDorman. This looks like an honest, heartfelt film that doesn't try to say love will fix everything - which is really refreshing considering that's what most romance films are about. Enjoy.

Review: David Gordon Green's 'Halloween' Deals in Tricks, Treats, and Trauma
Halloween Review

After watching John Carpenters 1976 action-thriller Assault on Precinct 13 at the Milan Film Festival, film producers Irwin Yablans and Moustapha Akkad put up the $300,000 budget for the young up-and-coming filmmaker to write, direct, and score a movie about a psychopath who stalks babysitters. Carpenter and his then-girlfriend Debra Hill began drafting a script for The Babysitter Murders, which was later renamed to Halloween after Yablans suggested setting the movie on Halloween night. And the rest is history. The 1978 independent film grossed $70 million at the worldwide box office and became the blueprint for every slasher flick since. Now, 40 years later, David Gordon Green (of George Washington, All the Real Girls) looks to capture some of the macabre magic of Carpenter's classic with his own Halloween a direct sequel that ignores the seven sequels before it and resurrects the iconic characters of Laurie Strode and Michael Myers.

Sitges 2018 Final Recap: Seeing Some of the Best & Worst Genre Films
Sitges 2018

There are film festivals and then there are genre film festivals. They both show great films from all over the world, and they both highlight cinema as one of the finest forms of modern art. What makes the Sitges Film Festival stand out in particular is the audience. Celebrating its 51st year, Sitges has been around for a while. It has a strong reputation and its known around Europe as the top genre festival. Horror fans from Spain and other nearby countries travel in to catch the latest, greatest offerings from talented directors, and catch up over drinks and pintxos (and tapas). This year was my second year back to Sitges, and I decided to stay the entire time to relax and catch a bunch of films over the full 10 days it runs. After my unforgettable experience last year (attending for my first time), I had to return, I couldn't stay away. And as usual, I'm very glad I did. I still love film festivals and Sitges is now one of my favorites in my regular yearly rotation.
