Exclusive: Hills Have Eyes 2 Set Visit Preview!



There are times when running a horror site can get you down. You wonder if enough people are reading your stuff, if all the blood, sweat and tears (not to mention other fluids) you dump into everything you do is really worth it. You question if what you’re doing has any real value or effect on people.

I mean, really, how many studios do you know of that would have that kind of foresight, that kind of confidence in their movies to pay for the huge undertaking of getting not one or two, but five reporters from the U.S. to England to Africa and back again? To me it proved that not only does Fox Atomic understand the power of the online world and the people who work in it but that they respect and embrace our little corner of the fanboy universe.

Not only did the five of us see some great stuff on both sets, but we also all had an awesome time when off set, as well. Well, most of us did. I know I sure as hell did. It’s a weird world, that of the internet journalist, but when you put more than a few of us together and force us to get along for a week (which, thank the gods, all of us did), things get even stranger.

So what, exactly, did we see? Some breathtaking sets that were built in a studio in Ourazazette, Morocco for The Hills Have Eyes 2, created by production designer Keith Wilson. Amazing makeup applied to stunt man/actor Derek Mears (who also happens to be one of the biggest horror geeks you could want to meet) created by the masters at KNB. Sketches and storyboards that showed how much of Hills 2 would play out (with nary a spoiler, too!). We saw enough things on the Hills Have Eyes 2 set to convince us that this wasn’t just some studio cash-in; Fox Atomic really believes in the film they’re making and wants it to be just as striking and memorable as the remake.

In the coming weeks expect to see a full set report, new images, videos, interviews and a whole lot more from The Hills Have Eyes 2, both here and on the other sites who were on-hand (namely IGN, Bloody Disgusting, Horror Movies.ca and JoBlo). Each of us will have a different perspective on all the things we saw and did, and you can bet your ass it’s going to be a great read. Stay tuned for the goods!

Flying Wolf! New Rampage Trailer Swoops In



Last month, we shared the crazy-ass trailer for “The Rock vs Three Huge Animals” movie Rampage. And we were all surprised by how serious the movie looks.

Well if that trailer wasn’t enough to get you at least interested in watching titanic beasts curb-stomping entire cities, then maybe today’s new trailer will do the trick.

Give it watch below and then let us know what you think!

Rampage is directed by Brad Peyton and stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Naomie Harris, Malin Akerman, Jake Lacy, Joe Manganiello, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

The film hits theaters April 20.

Primatologist Davis Okoye (Johnson), a man who keeps people at a distance, shares an unshakable bond with George, the extraordinarily intelligent silverback gorilla who has been in his care since birth. But a rogue genetic experiment gone awry transforms this gentle ape into a raging monster. To make matters worse, it’s soon discovered there are other similarly altered alpha predators.

As these newly created monsters tear across North America, destroying everything in their path, Okoye teams with a discredited genetic engineer to secure an antidote, fighting his way through an ever-changing battlefield, not only to halt a global catastrophe but to save the fearsome creature that was once his friend.

See What We Do in the Shadows on the Small Screen



No, we’re not talking about watching the hilarious vampire comedy, What We Do in the Shadows, at home on TV, cable, or Blu-ray… what we’ve got here is a bonafide television series in the works at FX! That’s right, kids, Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi are poised to take a bite out of TV!

Deadline is reporting that both Clement and Waititi have scored a pilot order from FX for a half-hour comedy series based on the 2014 mockumentary horror film.

Clement is attached as writer and executive producer on TV adaptation and Waititi will direct and executive produce. Kayvan Novak, Matt Berry, Natasia Demetriou, and Harvey Guillen are set to star in the FX pilot, executive produced by Scott Rudin, Paul Simms, Garrett Basch and Eli Bush.

Novak will play Nandor, the head vampire of the house. Berry plays Lazslo is the goofiest in the house, the type of vampire that turns into a bat and flies into a wall. Demetriou plays Nadja, the badass female vampire of the house. Guillen is believed to play Nandor’s assistant.
