Many slashers are told through the eyes of the victims. However, In a Violent Nature is presented largely from the killer’s perspective.

In a new video clip for In a Violent Nature, Johnny (Ry Barrett), the killer at the center of the conflict, is dragging the head of his victim in one hand and the bloody body in the other hand. Johnny enters a remote office in the wilderness and stares at an old mask used to fight fires. This is the same mask Johnny wears on the poster and in the trailer.

In a Violent Nature is written and directed by Chris Nash. The director is best known for the shorts Liplock and My Main Squeeze. Nash used little dialogue, focused on long takes, and disregarded a musical score for this slasher, whose villain pays homage to Jason Voorhees from the Friday the 13th series. Producers on In a Violent Nature include Shannon Hanmer and Peter Kuplowsky.

Besides Barrett, In a Violent Nature stars Andrea Pavlovic, Cameron Love, Reece Presley, and Liam Leone.

3 underrated Netflix movies you should watch this weekend (June 14-16)
Three people stand and laugh in Wanderlust.

The Bad Boys have saved summer. Last weekend, Bad Boys: Ride or Die topped the box office by earning a healthy $56 million, which exceeded the disappointing openings of The Fall Guy and Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga. Reports of cinema's demise have been greatly exaggerated it seems, and this weekend's Inside Out 2 is poised to make even more summer cash.

For Netflix, it's business as usual. The Richard Linklater action-comedy Hit Man is deservedly finding its audience, while the schlocky sci-fi movie Atlas continues to attract both the curious and masochists. The streamer also has an extensive library of hidden gems that are still worth watching. This weekend, check out these three underrated movies that should keep you away from the beach or the sun for awhile.

Chromecast or Google Cast? Google’s confusing wireless streaming tech explained

In 2013, Google debuted a small gadget called Chromecast. The device let you stream audio and video from your smartphone, tablet, or computer to your TV. At the time, when smart TVs were still a rarity, it was a far more affordable way to do TV streaming than dedicated streaming media devices like Roku and Apple TV.

The way you used that first Chromecast device was to "cast," the act of wirelessly sending content from your other devices. It didn't come with its own remote, so casting was the only way to get it to play audio and video on your TV. The technology that enabled casting from one device to another was given its own name: Google Cast.
