TUSK Clip Uses "Itsy Bitsy Spider" Better Than THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 Did In the twenty years since his influential debut feature, Clerks, Kevin Smith has established himself as a singular voice in the American indie landscape with his wry observations of disaffected youth culture. With his 2011 horror film, Red State, and his new film, Tusk, Smith reinvents himself by bringing his comedic chops to a new, disturbing milieu.

Kevin Smith‘s Tusk is a prime example of a filmmaker in the midst of reinvention. Every since the disaster that was Cop Out, Smith has been on a quest to become a new director. First he shunned Hollywood and self-distributed Red State, a welcome departure from his off-the-wall comedies of the past. Now he’s delving deep into horror with Tusk, the story of a man named Howard (Michael Parks) who kidnaps a podcaster named Wallace (Justin Long) and attempts to turn him into a Walrus. Much like Smith’s up-and-down career path, Tusk has a fascinating trajectory.

Exclusive 1:1 Interview: Tusk Writer and Director Kevin Smith! As a fan of Kevin Smith all the way back to CLERKS, it is exciting to see him delve into new territory. In his latest horror fantasy TUSK, he creates something that we’ve never seen before. Thanks to all those listening to his SModcast that voted “#yeswalrus” we can get a glimpse as to what a human walrus would actually look like. This fascinating, funny, creepy and philosophical flick... Read More...

Fantastic Fest Review: 'Dead Snow 2' a Masterpiece Theme Park Ride There's not a lot more you can do with the Nazi zombie premise, right? Fortunately, that's not a question Tommy Wirkola bothered to ask. The Norwegian writer/director blazed into the genre scene with his 2009 insta-cult hit, Dead Snow, a film whose basis cries out to be loved by horror fans "in the know." Its black-humor attitude and ultra-gore paving the way for it to be crowned the new Evil Dead. If Dead Snow is Wirkola's Evil Dead, Dead Snow 2 is definitely his Army of Darkness.

Paranormal Activity 5 Delayed Till 2015 Paranormal Activity 5 has a new title and release date. Paramount has announced that its new name is Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension. The release date has been bumped from its original October 24, 2014, slot to March 23, 2015.

Since no one gets to dislike anything in a public venue without drawing accusations of being a “hater,” I feel compelled to unpack my Kevin Smith bona fides: I included “Chasing Amy” in my book “101 Must-See Movies for Gay Men” despite the divisive opinions that comedy sparked in the LGBT community. I defended “Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back” as a step forward for queer humor when the film was being pilloried by GLAAD.

No one was quite sure what to think when Legendary announced it was working on a King Kong origin picture before it had much of anyone attached to actually make the movie happen, but Skull Island seems to be coming together quickly: the studio has lined up a director (Jordan Vogt-Roberts, The Kings of Summer), a screenwriter (Godzilla vet Max Borenstein), and now a star for its cast.

I Know What You Did Last Summer
Because it's been nearly a decade since the last cheapo direct-to-video I Know What You Did Last Summer sequel -- and because America just can't get enough of nubile young things in white tank tops being pursued by homicidal maniacs -- Sony has apparently hit the reboot button on the formerly Jennifer Love Hewitt-led franchise, snaring the creative team behind this year's horror hit Oculus to re-adapt the 1973 Lois Duncan book that started it all.
