“Today’s my birthday, and I’m treating myself to a trip to the seaside, as I do every year.” In honor of the Annecy Film Festival for animation this week, I’m featuring a few good animated short films that are worth watching. This one actually won Best Short Film at Annecy back in 2016, and it’s finally available online for viewing. The Head Vanishes is the latest short made by award-winning animation filmmaker Franck Dion, inspired by his great-grandmother, and the challenges of dementia. “The Head Vanishes is about the imagination of someone who is interpreting the world around her. It’s an evanescent vision of things, just like Jacqueline’s memory.” The animation style is a bit clunky, but it’s a heartfelt story. Watch in full below. Thanks to Short of the Week for the tip. Original description from Vimeo: “Jacqueline has lost her mind a bit, but whatever, for her trip to the seaside, she has decided to take the train by …

“I never should’ve stayed in that house.” Vertical Entertainment has debuted a new official US trailer for the supernatural horror thriller Incident in a Ghostland, the latest from French director Pascal Laugier (Martyrs, The Tall Man). We posted an international trailer for this earlier in the year. The story is about a house where a woman had to fend off intruders to save her daughters. Years later, the two of them grow up with completely different personalities, still traumatized by the events. When they all reunite at the house once again, strange events began to occur. The horror film stars Crystal Reed, Taylor Hickson, Rob Archer, Emilia Jones, Adam Hurtig, Anastasia Phillips, Mylène Farmer, and Alicia Johnston. Unfortunately this still looks as mediocre as it did in the first trailer, only for the most diehard horror fans. Here’s the official US trailer (+ poster) for Pascal Laugier’s Incident in a Ghostland, from YouTube: You can still watch the original trailer for Pascal …

I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but a borderline-excessive amount of trailers were released over the past couple of weeks. In fact, there have been so many that we had to create this article simply to contain them all. So keep reading to catch up with the latest trailers for …

What have I stumbled upon?! What is this genius work of cinema?! Seder-Masochism is the new film by filmmaker Nina Paley (of Sita Sings the Blues previously) and it’s totally amazing, brilliant, and hilarious. It’s very hard to describe the film, but I will try. Seder-Masochism is an animated exploration of Judaism, featuring Moses and a few other characters singing and dancing to various pre-existing songs (of all kinds). I could almost describe this as fun animated YouTube short extended to a full-length feature, but it deserves more credit than that. It’s also a personal film for Nina, as she interviews her father about her upbringing and his views on Judaism, while taking us on a journey into the history of Moses and the Book of Exodus. Paley’s Seder-Masochism is one of the most unique and creative films I’ve seen at the Annecy Film Festival. It’s not exactly perfectly polished and the animation is all done by Paley herself, which makes …

Critics have whacked Gotti, the new mob movie starring John Travolta as the Teflon Don. 45 producers (!) struggled for almost a decade to bring this biopic to the big screen. Perhaps they should’ve waited a little bit longer – Gotti reviews have earned the movie a rare 0% on Rotten Tomatoes. The …

Following the big cliffhanger ending of Avengers: Infinity War, the future productions of Marvel Studios that feature characters who met a grisly end face an interesting challenge. Knowing which characters have a movie coming out after Avengers 4 has the potential to ruin some of the suspense that comes from …
