The Killing of a Sacred Deer Trailer

TrailerTown – The Killing of a Sacred Deer

Aug 17th, 2017 Bonus Features, TrailerTown J

For film buffs like ourselves, the name Yorgos Lanthimos is not a new one. His films The Lobster and Dogtooth made us think, quiver, cry and cringe and the TrailerTown for his new film, The Killing of a Sacred Deer, looks to keep that pattern going. Yorgos’ movies are a different kind of art, in the vein of Shane Carruth (Primer, Upstream Color), where everything is otherworldly yet horrifyingly terrestrial….

Mother Movie Trailer

TrailerTown – Mother!

Aug 8th, 2017 Bonus Features, TrailerTown J

Darron Aronofsky’s Mother! had us intrigued early on, and we’re happy to report that the first full TrailerTown doesn’t leave us disappointed. Aronofsky has always had threads of horror through all of his films, but his taking a more direct route to horrify us looks like it will pay off in sleepless nights and us never allowing guests into our houses ever again. Who knows,…

The Shape of Water

TrailerTown – The Shape of Water

Jul 19th, 2017 Bonus Features, TrailerTown J

Let’s get this out of the way early, High Five: the Podcast loves Guillermo del Toro, so we were on board with his new project, The Shape of Water, before we knew much of anything about it. After seeing this TrailerTown, we’re diving in head first (pun intended) into this 1960s dream/nightmare. When it comes to monsters and creatures, few do it better nowadays than del…

The Tick

TrailerTown – The Tick Season 1

Jul 12th, 2017 Bonus Features, TrailerTown J

When Amazon first released their pilot for The Tick last year we were over the moon. High Five: The Podcast has a lot of nostalgia attached to The Tick property as we were both fans of the comics, cartoon, and marvelous Patrick Warburton-helmed live action adaptation. Amazon seems to be taking a mixed approach and taking what we loved about each iteration into consideration for their series, which…

Dave Made a Maze

TrailerTown – Dave Made a Maze

Jul 10th, 2017 Bonus Features, TrailerTown J

Every now and then a movie that’s not a Summer blockbuster sneaks under the radar and gives us something off-center and intriguing, which seems to be the case with Dave Made a Maze. This movie looks like a weird amalgamation of Michel Gondry’s Be Kind Rewind and Mark Z. Danielewski’s novel House of Leaves, which is not a criticism in the slightest. Escapism is a popular theme in movies…
