Star Trek

The Informers
In such works as Less Than Zero and American Psycho Brett Easton Ellis brilliantly dissects contemporary American society, a culture in which too much is never enough. Now, adapting his own acclaimed novel for the screen, he returns to the Los Angeles of the early 1980's with a multi-strand narrative that deftly balances a vast array of characters who represent both the top of the heap (a Hollywood dream merchant, a dissolute rock star, an aging newscaster) and the bottom (a voyeuristic doorman, an amoral ex-con).

Connecting all his intertwining strands are the quintessential Ellis pr...

Elm Street
Most people confuse horror and horrifying. Believe me, I’m a fan of the classics: Nightmare on Elm Street, Evil Dead, Dawn of the Dead, and so on. I enjoy my share of zombies, gore, masked villains and horny teenagers who never seem to learn that getting some means certain death.
