New Stills from Taylor Chien’s Cornered

Published

on

It was last November when we first heard about the new indie film Cornered from Busted Knuckle Productions, and now that it’s nearing its July, 2010 completion date, we’ve received a new batch of stills and an update on the flick.

Most recently Busted Knuckle’s Hunter G. Williams (the writer of the screenplay) and Taylor Chien (the director) have added Heather McComb, Scott Michael Campbell, and Anya Benton to the cast of Cornered, which also includes the versatile Williams as Detective Brant and Ricky Onsgard as the big bad he’s gunning for. The anticipated release date is first quarter 2011.

Synopsis:
This is the Stranger’s (Ricky Onsgard) game: All exits are rigged with explosives, and there is only one way out for young, imprisoned, and very innocent Janette (Heather McComb). A serial killer who will stop at nothing to satisfy his bloodlust, the Stranger provides clues for Janette to find the only escape from her own house as he sadistically stalks her in the darkness. He has cut her power, isolating Janette, and he has only given her two rounds in a gun, a low powered flashlight, and a dull knife to exit the confines of this terrifying game. If Janette does not play along, her last breath will be soon; and if she does, the next forty-five minutes will be the most challenging and horrifying of her life!

Check out the photos below, look for a trailer soon, and be sure to visit Cornered on Facebook along with the official Busted Knuckle Productions site.

Dario Argento Is Coming To HorrorCon UK 2018

Published

on

Hold your machetes, wipe your tears and pick your jaw up from the floor because the one and only Italian master of the horror film, Dario Argento will be making a rare visit to the UK to take part in HorrorCon UK. The greatest Horror convention in England is now in its 4th year and getting Argento to appear is a real coup. Argento who is perhaps one of the greatest ever horror director’s to get behind a lens will be appearing over the weekend of May 19th-20th to meet with fans and join in a Q and A session and there will even be a chance to get a photo with him.

HorrorCon UK will be pulling out all of the stops as the guests don’t stop there. Also scheduled to appear will be the legendary David Warner who has starred in everything from The Omen to Waxwork. Warner was supposed to make an appearance last year but sadly had to pull out at the 11th hour due to filming commitments.

The one and only Jeff Combs who is most famous amongst horror fans as playing Herbert West in the 1985 classic Re-Animator will be making an appearance and it is always an honor to share his company. In fact it will be a somewhat Re-Animator reunion as Barbara Crampton will also be at HorrorCon UK, marking her first ever European convention appearance!

The legendary Dee Wallace who is a bona fide scream queen with a resume that includes The Howling, The Hills Have Eyes, Cujo and The Lords of Salem and let’s not forget she survived the Critters so no messin’ with this gal is also here and she will be warmly welcomed that’s for sure.  Other guests include Claudio Simonetti the legendary performer, basically if you have a giallo movie in your collection- which we know you do- then you have heard Simonetti’s incredible work. He has worked closely with Argento and other Italian masters such as Lucio Fulci and Umberto Lenzi. The icing on the cake is that Simonetti will also perform some of his original movie scores on the day.

Billy Wirth who played Dwayne as part of the gang of vampires in one of the greatest 80s horror movies ever in The Lost Boys will also be here, just make sure you don’t get bitten by him! Rounding up the guests will be Graham Humphrey’s a man who needs no introduction but will get one anyway. Humphrey’ s artistic talent knows no boundaries and he has been behind the iconic UK VHS artwork from The Evil Dead to A Nightmare on Elm Street.

Apart from the guests will be the various traders selling everything from replica props, t-shirts, rare memorabilia, movies, magazines and model kits. Hosts will include Ben Wilkinson, Tony Earnshaw, Darrell Buxton and the majestic Bunny Galore! Simply put if you’re a horror fan and can get to the UK for this May you cannot miss the event of the year!

HorrorCon UK takes place the weekend of May 19th-2oth at Magna Science Adventure Center in Sheffield, England

You can purchase tickets and photo ops right here.

A tremendous book ― thought-provoking and terrifying, with tension that winds up like a chain. The Cabin at the End of the World is Tremblay’s personal best. It’s that good.” — Stephen King

When Will World War Z 2 Begin Filming?

Published

on

Supposedly the upcoming David Fincher World War Z sequel was rumored to begin shooting this fall, but now that doesn’t seem to be happening.

The Playlist reports that the script for World War Z 2 – written by Steven Knight (Eastern Promises, Peaky Blinders, Taboo) and Dennis Kelly (Utopia) – is still in development and apparently not ready quite yet. Add to that, Brad Pitt‘s schedule may be an issue as he’s shooting Tarantino‘s new movie soon.

While some location scouting has taken place in Bilbao, Spain, Sweden, Texas and other spots around the world, evidently Fincher will be taking on the second season of Netflick’s Mindhunter first.

Are you upset to know that World War Z 2 might still be a ways off? Hit us up and let us know in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

Synopsis:

When former U.N. investigator Gerry Lane (Brad Pitt) and his family get stuck in urban gridlock, he senses that it’s no ordinary traffic jam. His suspicions are confirmed when, suddenly, the city erupts into chaos. A lethal virus, spread through a single bite, is turning healthy people into something vicious, unthinking and feral. As the pandemic threatens to consume humanity, Gerry leads a worldwide search to find the source of the infection and, with luck, a way to halt its spread.
