The Losers Club return to Derry as adults in It: Chapter 2’s frightening new trailer.
In honour of the release of Greta, take a deep dive into this list of some of our favourite cinematic ladies who kill.
Pet Sematary's menacing new trailer takes pleasure in freaking you out.
In the horror genre there’s a very distinct line between gore and camp that just isn’t the easiest to straddle, but Tobe Hooper's The Mangler does just that.
We sat down with Stranger Things star Finn Wolfhard to talk Stephen King, Mike and Eleven, his favourite '80s movies, and much more.
Dreamcatcher (Lawrence Kasdan, 2003) – Sometimes you just have to embrace the ridiculous in a movie and just let it take you a long for the ride. I can’t in good conscience call Dreamcatcher a good film, but there is something about batshit earnestness that you can’t help but admire. Jonsey, Henry, Beaver and Pete […]
We play a bit of catch up looking at the found footage horror Devil's Due, the animated animal heist flick The Nut Job, Ralph Fiennes look at Charles Dickens The Invisible Woman, a Stephen King retrospective at the TIFF Bell Lightbox, a screening of the Lebanese war drama Zaytoun, the continued popularity of the documentary Nicky's Family, and free return engagements from some films that played the European Union Film Festival last year.
We take a look at some of the best goings on in Toronto this Halloween from movies, to TV, to theatre, and one really kick ass party. And we might have some surprises in store... if you dare.

While sick, one of our film critics went through a bunch of re-releases from the 80s and 90s from the 20th Century Fox archives (now being distributed by Anchor Bay). Without rhyme or reason he watched Ghost in the Machine, Six Pack, Hear No Evil, Jack the Bear, The Pirate Movie, Quicksilver Highways, Tough Enough, a made for TV remake of Vanishing Point, and former NFL great Howie Long's first starring role in Firestorm. We don't fully know why he did it , either, but some of them were good!
Last November I was privileged enough to witness a rare meeting of the minds and report on it for Dork Shelf. Cronenberg looks under King’s Dome detailed the filmmaker’s interview with Stephen King in front of a giddy audience at Toronto’s Canon Theatre. Although they covered many subjects it was primarily a promotional event for […]
This past Thursday night I was treated to a very special surprise: last minute tickets to an evening with Stephen King. I estimate that no one has written a larger portion of my lifetime’s reading than this man. And as an added bonus, he was interviewed by my favourite Canadian filmmaker, David Cronenberg. I didn’t […]
