Thanks to the very cool folks at AICN, Quint especially, my wife and I got to check out a screening of the much-loved Spanish horror movie The Orphanage (review) the other night in Boston, which was attended by the film's screenwriter, Sergio Sanchez, and director, J.A. Bayona.
Can you believe both Shawnee Smith (pictured) and Erica Leerhsen are being called scream queens now? I mean, sure, it’s by a trade publication, but it’s still kinda weird to think of Smith on the same level as, say, your everyday Brinke Stevens.
I just hope we learn a bit more about this title soon cause right now it sounds a bit on the silly side...
What's cooler than a web slinging super hero? A web slinging super hero that wants to take a bite out of your ass, that's what! Yep, old Spidey got the royal Marvel Zombies treatment a while back and now thanks to Wizard Entertainment you can take home the dead webhead's head!
Don't worry, I'm not talking about the film being re-cut or anything like that. Nope, instead we just got in a few clips from the upcoming Franck Khalfoun directed and Alexandre Aja produced parking garage thriller that hits theatres this Friday! Both clips come in at under a minute in running time, but the good news is there's plenty of the lovely Rachel Nichols and one very nasty death! Check out both clips below!
More red-band trailers are hitting the web today! This time YouTube is hosting the official trailer for Jeff Fisher's newest project, Killer Movie. In keeping with Fisher's experience with reality television ("The Simple Life"), Killer Movie focuses on a "reality television shoot that goes terrifyingly awry when its crew becomes stranded in a remote Northern town. A killer is on the loose, stalking cast and crew members one by one." But enough talk, check out the video right here!
This sucker is a helluva lot better than the last few posters for The Rage (review), don’t you think? If you’ve never seen any of ‘em, just trust me.
The last time I heard anything about Timber Falls was when Foy reported on it just over a year ago ("Timber! You're Dead!" - October 2006). News about the project has been so quiet that it took a couple of minutes to even recognize the name when it popped up today.
"Every year 21 million people go under anesthesia. One in 700 remain awake the entire time. When they planned her husband's murder, they never thought he'd be the one." That is the tagline which appears on the new Awake poster. How do I know this? Well, because Cinematical got the exclusive first look at it!
Seriously, how can anyone keep up with all the madness that was AFM, which ran from Halloween until yesterday?
UPDATE: This just in! Spoke with Rob and he confirmed he WILL be helming the C.H.U.D. remake! Now this would be just plain weird ... But kinda cool at the same time.
Old friend of the site and effects man extraordinaire Bill "Splat" Johnson dropped us a line with good news (finally!) about some upcoming projects he’s been working on for seemingly ever now. Working with the folks at Apple Pi Films, things are finally looking up for the man!
The other day I got the great opportunity to chat with Fido director Andrew Currie about the recent DVD release of his movie (listen to it here), and of course the subject of new projects came up.
Word came down from the production today that filing has officially wrapped on the semi-inide movie Lonely Joe, which is unfortunately calling itself Saw meets The Sixth Sense, despite the fact that the plot has nothing to do with kids who see dead people nor cancer-ridden psychos.
