Shudder New Arrivals include Glass Eye Pix titles LIKE ME and WENDIGO

Our favorite horror streaming service has added
Glass Eye Pix to their roster of February titles.
Bloody disgusting has the skinny:

We’re always excited to see what’s coming from Shudder each month, and February 2020 is going to be loaded with fresh new arrivals.

Like Me (Director: Robert Mockler)
A masked YouTuber draws fame, followers and a few vocal haters from her increasingly dangerous videos. This trippy, “wonderfully twisted” (per IndieWire) SXSW selection features an alienated Addison Timlin (Little Sister) and a morally dubious Larry Fessenden (The Dead Don’t Die) as unlikely companions on a drug-fueled, neon road trip that goes where you least expect it. Starring: Addison Timlin, Larry Fessenden, Ian Nelson (Also available on Shudder Canada).

Wendigo (Director: Larry Fessenden)
A blue Volvo makes its way through the fading light of a chilly winter evening in Upstate New York. Kim, George and their eight-year old son, Miles, are city dwellers stealing a weekend away at a friend’s country farmhouse. But a fluke accident sets off a chain of events that alters their lives forever and conjures up the ferocious spirit of the Wendigo, a Native American myth made manifest in Miles’ imagination. Starring: Patricia Clarkson, Jake Weber, John Speredakos and Eric Per Sullivan (Also available on Shudder Canada).

Paste: LIKE ME “The 50 Best Movies on Amazon Prime”

From Paste: Like Me is an indictment of a life spent “extremely” online: a thriller in which the thrill is the threat of empty transgression; a body horror flick in which the body horror is the way social media and Tumblr and Reddit and YouTube transform us, make us grotesque, perverting basic physical functions into scary, dysmorphic representations of the flesh sacks we carry around with us whenever we’re not online. Early in the film, writer-director Robert Mockler introduces us to the online world of our main character, Kiya (Addison Timlin, terrifying), via a disturbing barrage of hyperreal, gif-like images—close-ups of sugary cereal and milk chewed sloppily, of a viscous tongue mid-slurp, of Kiya doing weird kinesthetics in a dirty motel room while the camera capsizes and arises around her, this Manic Pixie Dream Girl who embodies each of those words as literally as possible. Though Mockler implies that these are all curated posts Kiya’s put online, we believe that this is how she sees the world. Aided by some seriously heady opioids and hallucinogens, she can’t help but digest her lived experiences without mitigating them digitally. As Kiya moves through Mockler’s pink-ish, neon dystopia, DP James Siewert shooting Timlin as if she’s stranded in the middle of a Michael Mann joint, everything seems on the table. Kiya lures a motel manager, Marshall (Larry Fessenden, better than excellent), to her room—another room, another motel, somewhere on this stupid planet—with the possibility of sex. Instead, he finds Kiya’s redecorated her room like an outtake from The Cell, testing the lonely guy’s willingness to go along with whatever insanity’s in store. Of course, some icky gastrointestinal calamity occurs, but Marshall never flinches, so Kiya kidnaps him and takes him with her. Gorgeous and gross in equal measure, Like Me is a visual feast. Mockler conjures setpieces out of practically nothing, crafting each frame with a meticulous symmetry that belies the chaos at the heart of Kiya’s impulsive odyssey.

SlashFilm: LIKE ME “The 10 Most Disturbing Movie Scenes of 2018”

7. Chewin’ For the Likes (Like Me)

Disclaimer: I don’t do well with vomit. Enter Robert Mockler’s Like Me, a warning of social media overconsumption in our digital age. How better to represent too much of something that can rot away your insides, cause internal discomfort, and project – literally – an adverse reaction? Stuffing your face with comfort foods until they come spewing out.

At first, Mockler’s artistic eye focuses close-up on Addison Timlin’s mouth as her hopeful insta-famous experimental photographer mashes gummies or pizza or other unhealthy treats between her teeth. Neon-died fructose sugars chomped and gnawed by pearly whites. Then Larry Fessenden introduces himself into the fold – a model victim of sorts at Timlin’s mercy. He’s the one stuffed full of cheese puffs, milk, and junk snacks until the point of nausea – where Timlin’s begins to press against his tummy. You can assume where this goes as a gross-out metaphor full of bile.

LIKE ME makes the grade on 2 New Lists

The most disturbing movies of 2018

“With no fewer than a couple dozen or so films utilizing society’s “like/share” obsessiveness to varying degrees of effectiveness, social media has proven ample fodder for cinema in recent years. Rest assured, Robert Mockler’s sobering social media drama Like Me is nothing like those movies. In fact, this incisive feature debut is not like any film you’ve ever seen before.”
