DANIEL ISN'T REAL
2019, 96 min, Dir: Adam Egypt Mortimer

If you’ve always wanted to see DROP DEAD FRED reimagined as a horror film, then this is your movie! Luke (Miles Robbins) is a Manhattan college student wrestling with his studies, his artistic inclinations and caring for his mentally ill mother. As a kid, he had an imaginary friend named Daniel - who suddenly reappears as an adult. Initially, Luke loves having Daniel around; he's exciting, daring and brimming with confidence, all qualities that Luke lacks. But it isn't long before Daniel's darker side emerges, and what follows is a thrilling and horrific look at mental illness through a genre lens. An absolute gut-punch, and one of the must-see films of 2019.


COLOR OUT OF SPACE
2019, 111 min, Dir: Richard Stanley

Director Richard Stanley brings to the big screen his long-gestating adaptation of the H.P Lovecraft short story, starring Nicolas Cage and Joely Richardson. After Nathan Gardener (Cage), his wife (Richardson) and their three kids move to a rural farmstead once owned by Nathan’s father, their idyllic new life is shattered by a meteorite that crashes into their front yard, bringing with it an alien organism. The pathogen quickly begins to contaminate plant life, farm animals and, in time, the Gardeners themselves, filling the screen with beautiful, disturbing, hypnotic and hallucinatory images. This creeping, atmospheric tale envelops the viewer in dread and unease until everything finally erupts into an effects-laden, soul-shattering climax.
