Jill is obsessed with her new roommate Jennifer, a promiscuous and sexy hotshot in the LA Fashion scene. New to the city and recently single, Jill is unable to keep up as she binges and purges to stay thin; eventually hating herself and everyone around her.

PA_OoU_lgInfestation Interview: ‘We Are Still Here’ Writer/Director Ted Geoghegan

We Are Still Here is unquestionably one of the best films showing at SXSW this year. Now we may be biased considering we do so love great horror flicks, but first time director Ted Geoghegan truly hit a home run with his inaugural effort behind the camera.

I sat down with Mr. Geoghegan to talk about the trend of film promotion opening the door to film production, the importance of practical gore, and the Lucio Fulci influences for We Are Still Here.

PA_OoU_lgGet Hard (At SXSW)

Get Hard is the latest Kevin Hart comedy in which he plays a guy mistaken for an ex-con by a racist, NERF-y finance executive. Playing that finance guy, and serving as the obligatory juxtaposition to Hart, is Will Ferrell. The two of them together should have been a recipe for tasty comedy stew. But alas, something went terribly wrong in that kitchen.

Brian and Chris take to the rooftops of Austin to record this highly special Highly Suspect review of Get Hard. Hey, that title also sounds like what happens when a man gets an erection…I just got that.
