“The House that Jack Built” Adds Uma Thurman to Cast

Lars von Trier is a name that horror fans may remember from his ultra-insane film Antichrist starring Willem Dafoe that came out in 2009. Since then, he has added a few more films to his resume but none that have piqued our interest more than the one he is working on right now: The House that Jack Built.

With Deadline reporting that they have added Uma Thurman to the cast that already features Matt Dillon in the lead role, this movie sounds like it’s headed in a promising direction.

New Red Band Trailer Released for The Belko Experiment

A new teaser dropped today for the James Gunn’s The Belko Experiment.  The film is directed by Greg McLean and features Sean Gunn, John C. McGinley and Michael Rooker. For many who suffer through corporate America every day, the survival of the fittest concept is all too real, and The Belko Experiment looks to take that to another, much darker level.

Some may describe this latest trailer as mind blowing, however, it shows the more graphic and violent side of the film. Will it be a splatter fest or a well thought out dark comedy? While the premise of the highly-anticipated horror flick sounds like The Purge meets Office Space, fans will be the judge on whether or not the film is able pull off the perfect amount of humor and terror. read more

Tales from the Crypt Reboot – New Trailer?

From 1989 to 1996, HBO kept horror fans glued to their network with their take on EC Comics’ classic Tales from the Crypt series. For seven years and 93 episodes, the Crypt Keeper introduced different tales of terror into our homes and we gobbled it up and begged for more. Boasting a huge list of notable guest stars, the series was a hit until it had eventually run its course with the network.

Fast forward to mid-2016 and film icon M. Night Shyamalan was announced as the new head of the series that was greenlit by TNT Network for 10 episodes to air in 2017. Horror fans rejoiced and danced in the streets! However, by the end of 2016, the show was reportedly mired in legal issues with problems securing rights and then word made its way around about possible budgeting issues at TNT as well. Horror fans were now despondent… read more

It’s a Wrap on Suspiria Remake

Forty years ago Dario Argento’s giallo masterpiece Suspiria was released and now production has wrapped on it’s remake. While remakes are generally not something to get excited for, especially when it’s a remake of a genre classic, this particular remake features an amazing cast and a very passionate director.

An all-star cast of Tilda Swinton, Chloe Grace Moretz, Dakota Johnson and Mia Goth was directed by Luca Guadagnino (A Bigger Splash) who told Empire back in 2015 that, “the film by Dario Argento was a very indicative moment of growing up for me because I saw it when I was 14, I think it changed me forever. I was obsessed with Argento through all my adolescence.” read more

“The Autopsy of Jane Doe” Review

I learned a valuable lesson last night that I’d like to pass along to all of you, dear readers. Are you listening? Good…here it is: do not, under any circumstances, watch The Autopsy of Jane Doe alone at night in the dark. Movies as terrifying as Autopsy should be viewed in daylight only, with a crowd of close friends nearby so that you can all look at each other and giggle nervously as if you’re not afraid; but you will be afraid.

Written by Ian Goldberg and Richard Naing, The Autopsy of Jane Doe starts out with a nice, gory autopsy (go figure, right?) being performed by a father (Tommy) and son (Austin) played by the venerable Brian Cox and Emile Hirsch respectively. Other than the gore, all seems pretty ordinary as the two work side-by-side, the father clearly being the subject-matter expert looking to pass his expertise onto his son. read more

Beast No More: Metamorphosis – Coming from Amigo Comics and to a Theater Near You?

Amigo Comics included Beast No More: Metamorphosis in their announcement of their January solicitations yesterday. Of note was that this was a “one-shot prequel to accompany the feature film Beast No More, due for release 2017, starring Jessica Tovey and Dan Ewing, written by Jennifer Van Gessel.” The film is directed by Aaron Warwick who worked with Van Gessel on the Nancy In Hell television pilot. Don’t be surprised if this film is not yet on your radar as it is listed on IMDb as still filming and has yet to receive much press. So little press, in fact, that there is not really much more to say about the film at the time of this writing. However, a standout here is that Jennifer Van Gessel is a writer for the film and the writer of the comic. Having a movie and comic tie-in can provide a publicity boost for both properties and the January release date of the comic should help generate interest in the film expected later in the year. The synopsis for each is below. read more

New Demonic Clip Dropped for Incarnate

Hitting theaters this week from Blumhouse Entertainment, WWE Studios, and director Brad Peyton  is Incarnate, starring Aaron Eckhart and Clarice van Houten.

The highly anticipated possession tale centers around Dr. Seth Ember, played by Eckhart, with an unimaginable ability to crawl into the minds of those possessed.  He is called upon by the Vatican to help 11- year- old Cameron, played by David Mazouz, before he is completely consumed by the demon.  Sound familiar?  Maybe.  However, horror fans always love a good exorcism and by the looks of the new clip that just arrived today through MTV, Incarnate seems to breathe new life into a the demonic child filmscape.  In general, horror fans always been terrified with the monster and child dynamic ever since Frankenstein met up with the little girl at the pond in 1931.  By the looks of the new clip, Cameron versus the demon appears to be a bit more ferocious. read more
