From the Twin Cities Film Festival -- DriverX was written and directed by Harry Barrial and it stars Patrick Fabian as Leonard Moore, a husband and a father who takes a job as a driver for an Uber-like company in order to make more money. As the nights go on and the more he becomes accustomed to this lifestyle, Leonard's seemingly perfect life with his kids and wife (Tanya Clark) begins to take their toil in this very good dramedy.
In 1974, Tobe Hooper shocked the world when The Texas Chainsaw Massacre was released. This film wasn't just a horror film, it was a ride into hell. With its documentary style approach, it felt like all the events that were taking place on screen, actually did happen. It was found footage way before it was ever even thought of as a genre. In 1986, Hooper made a sequel that was met with some hatred when it was first released. Now over 30 years, it may be the best sequel this series ever made.
From the Twin Cities Film Festival - The Year of Spectacular Men is about a woman who struggles to navigate the seemingly incessant failures of adulthood, the reality of a substandard dating pool and a debilitating fear of top-sheets, all in between X-Files marathons.
The People Under The Stairs was written and directed by Wes Craven and it features Ving Rhames, Brandon Quentin Adams, Everett McGill and Wendy Robie. It was released right after Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare and before Craven's A New Nightmare. Most of Mr. Craven's movies after A Nightmare on Elm Street were never well-received with movies like Deadly Friend and Shocker.
