One of the best limited release horror films from the last few years, "Signal" is now available for free streaming from Netflix.

Santi, a high-schooler who attends night school because of his allergy to sunlight, moves with his mother to a rural town located in a heavily wooded area in the mountains, where there is only 5 hours of sunlight a day. They take residence there in hopes that Santi can continue a more normal life and make more friends, but soon after moving, suspicious murders begin to take place.

Just from some of the films I've seen lately, it seems that "hoodies", or groups of young adolescents from the suburbs, are a major problem in Britain. In many recent British films, such as “Hot Fuzz” and now “Eden Lake”, these adolescents are portrayed as a technologically savvy bunch with baggy clothing and thick slang-filled accents.

For the past week now I’ve been seeing the trailer for this film “Obsessed”. No matter how many times I watch it I'm always surprised it doesn’t end with “coming this Tuesday to the Lifetime Network”.

The story at the center of Jack Ketchum’s “The Lost” calls to mind true crime tales like “The River’s Edge” and “Say, You Love Satan”. At the center of these stories are charismatic and fractured Borderlines and Sociopaths who exhaust all the morally ambiguous and victimless avenues for eradicating their impotence and pain, and end up committing murder to affirm their fantastic notions of self. Where the film adaptation of ‘The Lost’ differs is that it takes a phenomenological approach to the tragic events and people at its core.

I'm not going to lie, I intended to have this post be all about how far Thora Birch has fallen since "American Beauty", and rest assured I was going to mention the "Terror Train" remake ("Train") that hasn't seen the light of day yet.

"Shuttle" starts out simply enough. Mel and Jules, two 20-something girls fresh off of a late-night flight home from their Mexican vacation, get stranded at the airport looking for their lost luggage. While there they run in to Seth and Matt, a lady's man and a sweetheart respectively, both of whom were on the same plane. As the girls try to hail a bus home, Seth schemes and convinces Matt to forgo their own ride home in favor of following the girls.

Coming April 7th from Magnolia Home Entertainment, the thriller "Shuttle", starring "Madmen's" Peyton List. Here's the synopsis:
