5 Horror Manga You Might Have Missed
Uzumaki, Junji Ito - Whenever we recommend this comic to friends, the reaction is always the same one we had when we first heard about it. A horror premise based on a town plagued by spirals doesn’t sound like it has much potential to be terrifying so much as oddball.

First Reviews of Folman’s ‘The Congress’ Are In!
by:+ Ramin Zahed
Oscar-nominated director Ari Folman’s new pic The Congress opens the 45th Director’s Fortnight sidebar during the Cannes Film Festival on May 16.
The sci-fi movie mixes live-action with animation and stars Robin Wright, Paul Giamatti, Jon Hamm, Harvey Keitel, Danny Huston and Frances Fisher. The much-anticipated feature by the gifted Israeli director is based on The Futurological Congress by Polish writer Stanislaw Lem, who also wrote the famous sci-fi book Solaris. The plot follows the story of an aging actress (Robin Wright), who agrees to having herself scanned and turned into a digital actress for the sake of a single last, large payment to support her disabled son. The studio (which is cleverly called Miramount) can use her digital image in any way they see fit, and she is forever banned from acting again. Of course, she doesn’t quite realize how extensive the ramifications of her actions are.

Here’s the first full trailer (in glorious HD) for Guillermo Del Toro’s Pacific Rim, an inspired mash-up of special effects-heavy, live-action kaiju (monsters like Godzilla, Mothra, Rodan, etc.) movies and the piloted mecha epics (see Neon Genesis Evangelion) responsible for much of the success of anime here in North America. In this special effects-heavy trailer scenes of the destruction rained down on San Francisco, Manila, and Cabo by the giant kaiju critters are interspersed with humanity’s response, the creation of giant piloted robots to battle the monsters (“Go Big or Go Extinct”).
