JUNE 20 43 YEARS OF JAWS
A while back, I was hoping to see the 40th Anniversary of JAWS in theaters, but they were charging an arm and a leg.
JAWS was released on this day in 1975 and remains the Gold Standard for Animal Attack movies.
Read our review to see why this 43 year old 70's flick remains the high bar to reach for the upcoming MEG movie. No kidding! From movie trailer to poster, MEG is directly competing with a 43 year old movie! That's how damn influential JAWS remains to this day!
JUNE 14 UNFRIENDED: DARK WEB
Horror Thriller movies that tout, "From The Producer of", are rarely worthwhile. If this 2 minute trailer is any example of what 90 minutes of this movie will be, this snoozefest will likely be playing at Drive-Thru's.
But I'm a Horror fan so I'm cautiously optimistic.
JUNE 13 QUICK BITE Stan Lee Granted Restraining Order Against Business Manager, LAPD Investigating Claims of Elder Abuse by Ryan Parker

JUNE 11 TROLL BRIDGE
It took a long time to get this far.
The last thing this old man ever wanted to do was face down a troll, and now his last day is here.
TROLL BRIDGE got on its feet nearly ten years ago with this teaser trailer.
Author Terry Pratchett stayed with it as long as he could, but Alzheimer's took his life on March 12, 2015. This then, is his unrealized dream.

JUNE 6 BRIAN KEENE BURN FUND

JUNE 4 MARY SHELLY
IFC is one of the small boutique movie distributors. They have little power, influence, or money to get your movie in front of a large audience. Which means that you go with them, you likely go for a loss.
So why bother? Because when IFC represents you, they respect your work like no major. When IFC accepts your movie your career is launched in a way no superhero movie will achieve and the power brokers of the movie industry pay attention.
Caveat: Mary Shelley Wollenstonecraft was my introduction to literary Science Fiction and Horror.
