The Silent Treatment
On The Office, John Krasinski wrangled Dunder Mifflin into a silence contest. But he takes it even further in his debut horror film, A Quiet Place – with the first line of dialogue not appearing until about 40 minutes into the movie.
A Quiet Place is unlike any horror movie you’ve ever seen, or heard, since the entire premise is based on silence, so you don’t really ever hear much at all. Because when you do, it means someone is probably about to die.
So check out this amazingly tense and tantalizingly suspenseful movie. Silence has never been so frightening. Get it in up to 4K + HDR.
And if you’re worried about watching it alone, just join us this Friday for our A Quiet Place #VuduViewingParty. Join us and a few hundred of our close friends as we watch together, chat (silently on Twitter), and play trivia for great prizes. Get the movie and swing by on Friday at 7 p.m. (PT).

Wreck it Like Ralph, Lizzie, and George
Not that Ralph, the one from Rampage. Yeah, the video game where a giant gorilla (George), lizard (Lizzie), and wolf (Ralph) lay waste to city after city. That’s funny, the movie plot of Rampage is essentially the same as the game – and that’s why it’s awesome. Not to mention it stars Dwayne Johnson – and everything he touches turns to gold. Obviously. Enjoy it in up to 4K + HDR.
Because Wes Anderson
No, really, because Wes Anderson. That’s pretty much the best way to explain Isle of Dogs – a movie that follows an intrepid 12-year old whose search for his dog takes him to a government-sanctioned island of canine exiles. It’s charming, a little bleak, hilarious, and even weird, all mashed up together. Yup, you guessed it, because Wes Anderson. Think The Fantastic Mr. Fox up on caffeine…yes, it’s possible – just watch.

If you’ve been wondering where Mike Tyson has been, he’s been filming “China Thalesman.” Sorry, had to do it. China Salesman is like a crazy 80’s throwback action explosion, with an eight-minute, all-out slugfest of Iron Mike vs. Seven Segal as a crowning achievement. Yes, they fight. Yes, it’s just as you’d imagine it’d be – glorious.
The Endless is a haunting ride that delivers one wild ride. It’s got the eeriness of Annihilation – it even seems to have the same sound effects – but it really creates a tense and utterly confusing atmosphere that will leave you questioning everything you’ve ever believed about reality.
And if you’re looking for really dark horror, then check out Incident in a Ghostland. From Pascal Laugier, the director of the French torture horror favorite, Martyrs, Incident in a Ghostland is equally tortured and torturous.
