Exclusive: Gregory Plotkin to Direct Hellfest!

Gregory Plotkin

We told you a few weeks ago that filmmaker Gregory Plotkin (the Paranormal Activity franchise, Get Out) was circling a new film to direct called Hellfest and now we are happy to exclusively confirm he’s got the gig!

The news was broken during last night’s episode of Brainwaves Horror and Paranormal Talk Radio which featured Plotkin as our guest.

Today we caught up with him briefly for a more official quote. “I’m so excited to jump into Hellfest! This film will be my love letter to Halloween and all the other great horror films I loved growing up. I hope everyone is ready to bring back some old school horror… We’ve got a great team and it’s going to be a scary, fun ride!

We are so in!

Gale Anne Hurd is producing via her company Valhalla Motion Pictures. CBS Films president Terry Press is a longtime fan of the Hellfest concept, believing it could spark a horror franchise.

In the movie, a Halloween night of fun turns deadly at a horror theme park when a costumed killer begins slaying unsuspecting patrons who believe that it’s all part of the show.

Published

on

Vertical Entertainment just dropped a new clip from the upcoming sequel Beyond Skyline (review), and we have it for you right here.

Visual effects artist and original Skyline screenwriter Liam O’Donnell directs the surprisingly well-received installment starring Frank Grillo (The Purge: Anarchy & Election Day), Bojana Novakovic (Drag Me to Hell), Jonny Weston (Project Almanac), and Iko Uwais (The Raid).

Beyond Skyline will not be getting a wide theatrical release. Instead, Vertical Entertainment will release the sequel on DVD/Blu-ray/VOD on January 16th.

Synopsis:
When the population of Los Angeles is vacuumed off the face of the Earth, Detective Mark Corley storms his way onto an alien ship to rescue his estranged son. But after crashing the ship in Southeast Asia, he must forge an alliance with a band of survivors to discover the key to saving his son and taking back the planet once and for all.

Check Out Episode 1 of the New VR/360 App Narrative Series Find Me

Published

on

Let me get this out of the way right off the top. I’m not really into the whole VR/360 experience. I’ve tried it out and it’s cool and all, but I’m not sold just yet.

That said, if you are into such games/experiences, you might want to check out “Find Me”.

The mobile app is a 360/VR narrative series from BlackBoxTV, James McFadden, Eric Jacks & Collab, as well as #YouTubeSpaceLA and The Los Angeles Times.

Each episode features visual codes and puzzles for you to solve, unlocking additional content and information available only in the app. That is until IRL gameplay begins in Los Angeles on December 25th and the app becomes your key to unlock locations in the real world.

“Find Me” will have one winner with a one-of-a-kind prize for the person who “finds” and frees the main protagonist Julia Zamora (played by Madison Lawlor) via the app.

Again, I’m not into these VR/360 apps but if you are – or want to try one out – I highly suggest taking on “Find Me”.

You can watch “Find Me – Episode 1” below and then make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think in the comments below or on social media!

Get the “Find Me” App for iOS HERE and Android HERE.
