Following up on our news item last week regarding executive producer Greg H. Sims’ home-invasion thriller Behind Your Eyes, this scribe contacted Sims to get the 411 on the Southern California-shooting production. Written by Daniel Fanaberia and directed by Clint Lien, Behind Your Eyes is the first in-house feature for new production and distribution entity Vesuvio Entertainment Corporation, of which Sims is CEO (not Tri Coast as originally reported).
As if he doesn't have his hands full enough with The Crow remake, Stephen Norrington has been tapped by Legendary Pictures to write and direct The Lost Patrol, "a supernatural action thriller set against the backdrop of World War II."
News that Ken Foree is starring in a movie about the DC Sniper shootings would normally prove promising. Except DC Sniper is the latest from Ulli Lommel, the master of plotless, no-budget, factually inaccurate, pseudo-art exploitation flicks about real-life mass murderers. On the plus side, this does not look like the typical artsy-fartsy crappola we've come to expect from Lommel. On the other hand, just wait until you see the trailer. Oh, my.
We're already well into the new year, and still there's been no confirmation as to the means by which Summit Entertainment plans to unleash the final chapter in The Twilight Saga known as Breaking Dawn onto the throng of tweens and cougars who are anxiously awaiting it. Will it be one film or two? Is this causing "drama" between author Stephenie Meyer and the studio as alleged by some in the media?
Okay, my dread over the thought of Syfy redoing the excellent British TV show "Being Human" has abated a little with the network's announcement of who will be helming the show. Husband-and-wife duo Jeremy Carver ("Supernatural") and Anna Fricke ("Privileged") have been selected to write the series.
Filmmakers Anders Jacobsson and Tomas Sandquist wrote in to give us the heads-up about their new film Insane and we've got the goods on it for you right here!
The UK cover art for the next chapter in George A. Romero's epic franchise, Survival of the Dead, has made its online debut and all it does is make us long for Magnet's eventual release here! This cannot come soon enough, damn it!
Well, 2010 is certain starting off with a bang for DVD collectors. Along with the unrated director's cut of Rob Zombie's Halloween II and Duncan Jones' stellar Moon (polar opposites if there ever were any!), we've been given the choice of two new Hindi thriller/Bollywood films, Accident on Hill Road and Bolo Raam.
It's no big secret. Lately the really good horror films out there have been coming from abroad while Hollywood sits high atop its pointless remake machine. Four clips from the new French thriller In Their Sleep (or Dans ton sommeil for you purists out there) from directors Caroline du Potet and Eric du Potet have hit online, and we've got 'em right here for you free of poorly synced dubbing.
Are you ready for three new clips today from The Butcher Brothers' latest trip into genre land? That's right, kids, their new film The Violent Kind is just days away from making its debut at Sundance 2010, so that means it's time for a little bit of enticement!
There are very few places darker and more terrifying than the recesses of the human mind and the buried wickedness that resides there. Sometimes these feelings and notions seep out into the real world despite our best efforts to keep a handle on them, and that, dear friends, is the essence of psychological horror. Get ready to meet Baal, a new play from Ben Rock.
This just in -- Joe Knetter, Scarlet Salem, and yes, me, Uncle Creepy, have agreed to be a part of Jonathan Moody's new webseries "Scream Queen Campfire", which will feature five beautiful scream queens sitting around a campfire taking turns telling two stories each and giving us ten terrifying and entertaining tales to digest. Just think of how many heaving boobs that can equal up to!
Bob Gray's Bigfoot was actually one of the very first of the new wave of Sasquatchploitation flicks back when I got an advance look at the film in late 2005. Thanks to a snafu with another distribution company, Bigfoot is only now getting its long overdue DVD release nearly five years later and after a myriad of other killer Sasquatch flicks have come and gone.
More goodies coming out of the upcoming After Dark Horrorfest 4! This time we've got a still and the official one-sheet for the final film that made the cut for this year's festival -- Kill Theory.
We continue getting updates on the progress of Sherwood Horror, a modern day horror version of Robin Hood with an ex-con Robin Hood type getting out of jail and returning to his hometown now ruled by vampires. The film has yet to begin shooting, but it looks like that is about to change given a special effects artist is now onboard and we have a look at the conceptual art of the vampirized Sheriff Nottingham.
