Trainwreck'd Society's Top 20 Films of 2018 [Exclusive!]

When it came to films in 2018, the possibilities were almost too vast, in my humble opinion. There were so damn many movies that I "wanted to see" but just couldn't quite find the time to get to them all. With that being said, the titles below were absolutely my favorite of the couple hundred...

5 out of 5 skulls!

"If you are looking for a horror comedy that takes the “horror” part seriously, along with a heaping helpin’ of surreal visuals, pointed commentary, and toaster pastries; Clickbait is the fright flick for you!"

Movie Review: Clickbait (2018) - horrorfuel.com

Bailey (Amanda Colby Stewart) is a top content creator for hot social media site str33ker who is unfortunately falling to second place in the online popularity contest (thanks to her rival Laura getting cancer and therefore the public's sympathy). In the social circles she travels in this makes her a bit of a pariah...but that ...

"You’re a click away from a topical and trendy horror satire...Clickbait's humor is an evolution of the Kaufman schlock in TROMA films, updated for a modern audience, and dare I say a little more sophisticated for adults.” - The Headless Critic / Without Your Head - 4 out of 5 headless critics

"Clickbait is a fun take on social media, fame, and what best friends are ready to do for each other when the moment comes, giving satire, dark humor, and style to a story that is fun and keeps the viewer on their toes throughout the film.” - Emilie Black

After reaching new heights in her internet fame, a college student looking for more is kidnapped and her roommate is once again reluctantly roped into helping as she seems to be the only one available. Directed by Sophia Cacciola and Michael J.

"...what it will do is surprise you, and it may even break your heart. This isn’t a film about vapid millennials, but a statement on how vapidity has become a trait which millennials are being forced into."

Boston Underground Film Festival Review: CLICKBAIT (2019) - Nightmarish Conjurings

Having recently played at the Boston Underground Film Festival (BUFF), CLICKBAIT is a laugh-a-minute horror comedy which intelligently shines a light on the soul-sucking void of social media influencer culture, without substituting entertainment value for overly preachy commentary. Directed by the team behind Blood of the Tribades , Sophia Cacciola & Michael J.

"Michael and Sophia are helping to re-invent arthouse satire, and I am eager to see more. They are a part of the new wave of elevated indie horror that you just can’t pigeonhole."

Horror Comedy 'Clickbait' (2019) - An Internet Famous Movie Review - PopHorror

I've been seeing praise for the indie horror comedy, Clickbait , for awhile now. I initially missed the award-winning pop culture satire, directed by Michael J. Epstein ( The Obliteration of Chickens 2019 - read our review here) and Sophia Cacciola ( Blood of the Tribades 2016 - read our review here), from a screenplay by Epstein and Jeremy Long ( Retired Cupid 2018).

8/10
"A scathing observation of the habits of the internet age, Clickbait asks us to take a hard look at our online viewing habits and the true reasons for our enjoyment of the darker things that appeal to us, and demands we truly consider the kinds of things we might be inadvertently complicit in."

CLICKBAIT - STARBURST Magazine

Bailey is a previous darling of video sharing site str33ker, whose unprecedented run on the top spot was brought to an end by a rival vlogger gaining public sympathy by dying of cancer. Soon afterwards she and her flatmate Emma begin being stalked, with the masked prowler posting their exploits to the same site, giving ...

 

 

 

"...tied tightly by a string of energetic and infectious performances by the duo of Stewart and Aguilar, who are not only constantly charming, but whose chemistry is undeniable. I don’t think this film would work nearly as well without them. Throw in a scene stealing Seth Chatfield as the gut busting and hilarious Detective Dobson, and you’ve got yourself a film with a leading cast of characters."

BUFF REVIEW: Clickbait (2019) dir. Sophia Cacciola & Michael J. Epstein | BOSTON HASSLE

Let's be honest: anyone would do anything to become internet famous. We see it everywhere nowadays; pranks, injuries, and public displays of idiocy are all the rage in the current social-media-driven world. Whether this is bad or good is up to the eye of the beholder, but no one can deny the lengths people would go for fame.

Buff 2019 Review: Clickbait (2019)

Bailey (Amanda Colby Stewart) lives for her streak; five bolts on Str33ker means internet fame and all the desirable perks that go along with it. When her competition, Laura, is diagnosed with cancer and bumps Bailey out of the top spot, drastic measures need to be taken.

3.5/5
"Fans of John Waters and Paul Bartel movies are in for a treat with Clickbait."

These longtime fixtures of the arts scene fled for LA. Now they're back to screen new film 'Clickbait' - The Boston Globe

For Michael J. Epstein and Sophia Cacciola, leaving Boston behind to pursue filmmaking careers in Los Angeles wasn't easy. When the married Somerville multi-hyphenates - behind bands including Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling and Darling Pet Munkee, and movies like "Magnetic" and "Blood of the Tribades" - split the Boston scene in which they'd played a key role, they wrote a lengthy, much-shared Facebook post qualifying the decision.

BUFF 2019: CLICKBAIT Explores the Millennial Obsession with Internet Fame

"Not all millennials", am I right? But seriously, there are tons of folks in both the millennial generation and the yet unnamed post-millennial group that seem to believe how many followers you have on Instagram, YouTube, Twitter, and whatever other social media platforms are popular these days is the be-all end-all of life.
