“Avengers: Endgame” and “The Public”: The Best of the First Third of 2019

With April wrapping up, we can once again look back. We’ve officially finished up with the first third of the calendar. As such, I wanted to once again highlight the best of the year so far, consisting of my top ten and various awards for 2019 to date. Much like last time around, when I did the first quarter of the year at the start of April, I’m mostly limiting it to things that have already hit theaters. My only exception in the past has been that I’d include eligible titles from the currently ongoing Tribeca Film Festival, but since that’s still in progress, I’ll hold off. There are some others from the year that I’m fond of and might have otherwise included, but I didn’t want to cheat, so they’re on hold and will be given a special citation. Basically, it’s an arbitrary decision,

Happy April, everyone! As we gear up for a brand new month, that means we also have a more horror and sci-fi home entertainment releases coming out this week, making for the perfect way to kick everything off. If you happened to miss it during its theatrical run, The Man Who Killed Hitler and then The Bigfoot heads home on both formats this Tuesday, and I cannot recommend it enough. Scream Factory and IFC Midnight have teamed up for the home releases of Pledge and Rust Creek, and if you’re a big Hellboy fan, two of the animated Hellboy movies are headed 4K Ultra HD as well.

“High Flying Bird” and “Us”: The Best Of The First Quarter Of 2019

Somehow, March is about to end. Ladies and gentlemen, as I seem to find myself saying around this point each and every single year…time really does fly. Believe it or not, we’re now a full three months into the 2018 movie calendar, which means we’re literally a quarter of the way through the film slate for the year. Wow. Just…wow. That got me thinking about what the best of the bunch so far this year has been, as I’m prone to do around this time each year. Since now is around the time when the film slate begins to transition into summer releases and counter programming independent fare ramps up, I thought it was the perfect time to praise the best of 2019 so far. Basically, anything that hit screens between January 1st and March 31st will be up for grabs here for my personal honors. Once again,

‘Rust Creek’ Review: Enthralling Kidnapping Thriller Is Like a Feminist ‘Breaking Bad’

‘Rust Creek’ Review: Enthralling Kidnapping Thriller Is Like a Feminist ‘Breaking Bad’
It’s hard to choose a single moment that best exemplifies the hard-edged feminist lens at work in director Jen McGowan’s chilling “Rust Creek,” but the image of the teenage Sawyer (Hermione Corfield) gruffly ripping off her acrylic nails to scale a ditch is a top contender. It’s a move that might be perceived as funny in a more commercial genre film, but is entirely believable in McGowan’s understated and plausible nightmare — making it all the more chilling.

Intimate in scope to its great advantage, “Rust Creek” begins and ends with Sawyer’s journey, with a stable of male friends and foes providing color and intrigue. When she receives word of a job interview in Washington D.C., the soon-to-be college graduate hops in her red SUV and hits the road. Following her navigation app, Sawyer turns off the highway to avoid traffic, and quickly finds herself

‘Rust Creek’ Exclusive Clip: Cooking Meth In A Backwoods Kentucky Trailer Is Absolutely Terrifying

We’re not saying that “Breaking Bad” glamorized making meth in an Rv, but it sure looked a hell of a lot fancier than what is presented in “Rust Creek.” The thriller, which puts a new spin on the classic “girl is lost in the woods” subgenre, shows a seedier, and dangerous, side to the meth game, and much like Sawyer, in the below clip, we would be grabbing the sharpest thing we could find to get out of there too.

Second Opinion – Rust Creek (2018)

Rust Creek. 2018.

Directed by Jen McGowan.

Starring Hermione Corfield, Micah Hauptman, Daniel R. Hill, Sean O’Bryan, Jay Paulson, and Jeremy Glazer.

Synopsis:

An overachieving college student gets lost on her way to a job interview. A wrong turn leaves her stranded deep in the Kentucky forest. The woman must defend herself against the harsh elements and a band of ruthless outlaws. She is forced into an uneasy alliance with a strange loner who has unknown intentions.

“Rape revenge” is the murkiest of horror’s tangential offshoots when it comes to intent, portrayal, and execution. Granted, Jen McGowan’s Rust Creek avoids such classification/stigmatic label – but how quickly this review’s tone could have changed. An independent girl’s backwoods road trip features all the trappings of I Spit On Your Grave: Wrong Turn, Baby. Good thing Julie Lipson’s screenplay (story by Stu Pollard) is a smarter bear trap,

Review: Rust Creek, Danger and Redemption in the Backwoods

The backwoods and its inhabitants have been a cornerstone of contemporary horror films for decades. Hillbilly hicks and their sterotyped lack of intelligence and aggressive behaviour makes for an easy villain, usually with young people as the targets of their anger. Rust Creek, directed by Jen McGowan (Kelly & Cal) and written by Julie Lipson, tells the tale of a young but smart woman who is caught up not only in the hillbilly's violence, but their own nefarious dealings that leave her vulnerable and almost completely alone. While following a more or less familiar path, McGowan does not shy away from the harsh relatities of rural middle American life, while not taking away any blame born by men for their violence towards women. Sawyer (Hermione...

‘Rust Creek’ Mixes Female Empowerment With ‘Deliverance’ In This Solid, Well-Crafted Thriller [Review]

Tense, relatable, and cut from a familiar narrative cloth, “Rust Creek” manages to overcome a few character and pacing issues to emerge as a quality thriller. The story of a young woman who gets lost in Kentucky’s backcountry and runs afoul of the locals, the film makes a meal out of a very thin premise, and only occasionally stretches the strictures of reason and common sense. And while “Rust Creek” stumbles over a couple of rough patches by way of a few cliché characters, the bones of a good movie are indeed here.

Daily Dead’s 2019 Winter Horror Preview

  • DailyDead
Happy almost 2019, dear readers! The holiday season is nearly over, but rather than let that get you down, why not indulge in some great horror movies coming our way over the next few months? Usually, the winter season of genre releases can be something of a mixed bag in terms of quality, but there some impressive projects coming out in the next few months that have me extremely excited as a horror fan. The two films that are my most anticipated are (of course) Us from Jordan Peele and Christopher Landon’s sequel Happy Death Day 2U, but I’m also very intrigued by what I’ve seen from films like Greta, Glass, Braid, Captive State, and Escape Room so far, and am really looking forward to seeing how those stories come together onscreen as well.

We also have a new sci-fi movie featuring Keanu Reeves getting released in the coming months,

The Girl is Not Helpless in Rust Creek [Trailer]

The knee-jerk reaction at the opening moments of the trailer for Jen McGowan's Rust Creek is a groan; here's yet another movie about a woman who gets stranded in the backcountry only to be found by a couple of locals who turn out to be killers. Thankfully, this is not that movie.

At least not entirely.

Hermione Corfield leads the movie as Sawyer, a savvy young woman on her way to a job interview. A wrong turn and car trouble leaves her stranded in the Kentucky forest where she is chased by a pair of locals looking to have a good time; whether she's interested or not. She fights back, a chase ensues and Sawyer then finds herself at the mercy of another local named Hollister (Micah Hauptman).

I like that Rust Creek seems to be actively playing agains

"If they find you here, they'll kill ya."

The cast includes Hermione Corfield, Jay Paulson, Micah Hauptman, Sean O'Bryan, Daniel R. Hill, John Marshall Jones, and Jeremy Glazer.
