The story of struggling artists turning to drugs for breakthroughs is not exactly a new idea both in reality and in fiction. But I can guarantee no one has ever seen anything like Bliss, a grisly new horror film from Joe Begos (The Mind’s Eye). Coming to theaters and VOD on Friday, September 27th, Bliss is a brutal and gory film, featuring what will surely be a career-making performance from Dora Madison and providing a much-needed twist in a classic horror subgenre.
HBO has released a new trailer for the long-awaited new season of True Detective, which will premiere nearly three and a half years after season two ended, believe it or not.
The new season stars Oscar winner Mahershala Ali, and the story will take place over the course of three decades. It comes from creator Nic Pizzolatto. You can find much more information on True Detective season three and check out the new trailer as well as a previously released trailer in case you missed it.

+ 1 (Plus One), the latest film from Greek director Dennis Iliadis (Hardcore), bases its plot around a pair of interesting questions: 1.) If you were given the chance to go back in time and rectify a terrible mistake, would you do so even though the previous outcome was the one meant to happen?; and 2.) How would you react to suddenly being confronted by a clone of yourself that has all of your memories but only up to a certain point in their life?
The first quandary is posed to David (Rhys Wakefield, The Purge), an aimless high school graduate whose college student girlfriend Jill (Ashley Hinshaw, Chronicle) feels that their relationship is going nowhere fast and David’s lack of future prospects is holding her back. These emotions are crystallized one afternoon when David mistakenly approaches Melanie (Natalie Hall, Pretty Little Liars) in the halls of the university believing at first that she’s Jill because the two of them look very much alike, but doesn’t reject Natalie when she kisses him in full view of the heartbroken Jill. With their romance in a free fall David and his friend Teddy (Logan Miller, Ultimate Spider-Man) decide to attend a massive blow-out being held at the home of local rich kid Angad (Rohan Kymel) that promises all manners of debauchery. Knowing that Jill will be at the party as well gives David the belief that he can still repair the damage he inflicted.
