IFC Films Will Allow Theaters to Screen 200 of Its Library Titles for Free Upon Reopening

IFC Films Will Allow Theaters to Screen 200 of Its Library Titles for Free Upon Reopening
In an aim to help now-shuttered independent theaters, IFC Films will allow cinemas to screen 200 of its library titles for free once they open back up. The distributor hopes that favorites like “Frances Ha,” “Y Tu Mamá También,” and even “The Human Centipede” will help drive audiences back to theaters in the coming months, a time when fewer and fewer new releases are being scheduled.

The Indie Theater Revival Project‘s offerings will be available to theaters beginning May 29, with traditional rental fees for library titles waived for theaters in the first 30 days that they’re open, starting from whatever date they reopen their doors. That means more money in the pockets in the form of ticket sales for local theater owners who have been faced with a near-zero revenue stream after closing their doors last month.

Tales From Beyond The Pale Launches Free Weekly Podcast

One of my all-time favorite horror events was experiencing a live performance of Tales from Beyond the Pale at the Overlook Film Festival in 2016.

The B-Side – Sylvester Stallone

Ladies and gentlemen, please enjoy this new episode of The B-Side, from The Film Stage. Here we examine movies from established movie stars that have flopped at the box office, been forgotten by time, or remain hidden gems. These aren’t the films that made them famous or kept them famous. These are the other ones.

And, man oh man, does Sly have a bunch of other ones. We cover one movie from each decade of the movie star’s career: his directorial debut Paradise Alley in 1978, the prison drama Lock Up from 1989, James Mangold’s Cop Land (1997), the remake Get Carter and, finally, Bullet To The Head from 2013.

We get a bad impression from podcast producer Conor O’Donnell and some sharp insight from our guest Chadd Harbold, an accomplished filmmaker with two films in theaters right now: Depraved, directed by Larry Fessenden, and Villains, starring Bill Skarsgård and Maika Monroe.

Review Round-Up: “Can You Keep A Secret?,” “Depraved,” “Haunt,” “Liam Gallagher: As It Was,” And “Super Size Me 2: Holy Chicken!”

The round-up returns once again! With so many independent releases hitting theaters here in early September, it’s almost impossible not to have to play catch-up like this. Today, we’ve got five new films to give a quick take on, including one in Super Size Me 2: Holy Chicken! that I admittedly forget to discuss last week. Joining that documentary are the horror efforts Depraved and Haunt, along with the doc Liam Gallagher: As It Was, as well as the indie comedy Can You Keep a Secret? It’s quite the group! How many of them are worth your time and money? Do any especially stand out from the pack? Time to dive in and answer just that… Can You Keep A Secret? Romantic comedies used to be big business.

‘Depraved’ Film Review: Larry Fessenden’s Latest Is a Mumblecore Frankenstein

‘Depraved’ Film Review: Larry Fessenden’s Latest Is a Mumblecore Frankenstein
It’s been 201 years since Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein” was originally published, without her name on it. That injustice was rectified a few years later, but it’s still happening today. “Depraved” doesn’t merely play off of the ideas and themes of Shelley’s groundbreaking novel; it adapts it fairly closely — albeit in the present day — and somehow the movie doesn’t even mention her in the credits. “Depraved” indeed.

The latest film from Larry Fessenden, directing his first feature since 2013’s “Beneath,” tells the story of an army medic who dreams of putting mutilated soldiers back together. Henry teams up with — oh, these on-the-nose names! — Polidori, the heir to a pharmaceutical empire, to steal body parts and raise the dead. As you can imagine, Henry’s girlfriend Elizabeth (Ana Kayne) is highly skeptical.

But, shirking tradition, Fessenden’s screenplay doesn’t tell the “Frankenstein” story from the mad scientists’ perspectives.
