Watch the exclusive teaser for LIKE ME

LIKE ME premieres at SXSW Monday, March 13th at the Stateside Theater!

From Screen Anarchy:

The internet can be a weird and dark place, which is something I think anybody who has spent any amount of time online can agree on. How much online culture will grow to shape society versus how much society shapes online culture is still something to be seen played out around us but as we see a generation now reaching maturity having spent their entire lives inundated in broadband video and social media it’s clear enough that it’s doing something to us. And what that thing may be is very much the subject of Robert Mockler’s striking debut feature Like Me.

MOST BEAUTIFUL ISLAND on No Film School’s must-see SXSW list

First-time writer-director Ana Asensio’s Most Beautiful Island is a movie you won’t easily forget.

She decides to take an odd job to get herself out of financial straits, but when she shows up, she’s forced into a dangerous underground world in which her life hangs by a delicate thread. Shot in gritty Super-16, the film intimately captures the desperation and ignominy facing many American immigrants. – Emily Buder

EW has a New Trailer for POD!

EW has a brand new trailer for the Mickey Keating directed POD, starring Dean Cates, Lauren Ashley Carter, and Brian Morvant, featuring Fessenden.

From the EW breakdown:

Where would the horror genre be without creepy woods and basements? We don’t know—and, fortunately, it’s not something we have to worry about.

That brings us to the creepy woods-and-basement-featuring trailer for the new, SXSW-screened horror movie, Pod. Written and directed by Mickey Keating, the film stars Dean Cates and Lauren Ashley Carter as siblings whose veteran brother, played by Brian Morvant, believes he has a secured a sinister being of some sort in the basement of their family’s remote lakehouse in Maine.

The film also features the always watchable indie-horror nabob Larry Fessenden and will be released to select theaters and on VOD, Aug. 28.

Read On for the trailer and an awesome new poster!

WE ARE STILL HERE Review: “Entertaining Chiller”

wearestillhere

“genre fans with a sense of history should make this entertaining chiller a sought-after item for midnight slots, and a welcome pickup for specialty home-format distribbers.”

“A rare horror exercise whose characters are nearly all well into middle age, “We Are Still Here” introduces the Sacchettis as they drive toward their new home in upstate New York in the dead of winter. Both are grieving the recent loss of their only child, Bobby, in a car accident, but hope the move will provide some distance from that tragedy for Anne (Barbara Crampton, “Re-Animator”) in particular, who’s clearly suffering from major depression. To the dismay of her husband, Paul (Andrew Sensenig), however, she immediately claims to feel Bobby’s “presence” in their new digs.”
