The new flick from Steven C. Miller, Under the Bed, is moving at a rapid pace. So rapid that the first official still is already here. Ready to take a peek? We double dog dare ya!

Jonny Weston (Johnny Dies in the End) and Gattlin Griffith (who plays young Hal Jordan in the upcoming Green Lantern movie) play brothers who team up to battle a creature in what is being described as a “suburban nightmare” tale. “[We’re] making a love letter to early Steven Spielberg films,” said the filmmakers to The Hollywood Reporter, who also debuted the below still.

From the Press Release
Jonny Weston and Gattlin Griffith topline UNDER THE BED, the latest indie from up and coming genre producing outfit Site B. The duo will play brothers, Neal and Pauly, respectively, in what is described as an homage to classic Amblin productions like Steven Spielberg’s POLTERGEIST.

Steven C. Miller directs.

Peter Holden, Musetta Vander and Kelcie Stranahan round out the cast. Holden plays Terry, the brothers’ father, while Vander stars as the stepmother Angela. Stranahan plays Cara, Neal’s love interest.

The suburban nightmare reteams A HORRIBLE WAY TO DIE executive producer Zak Zeman with producer Brad Miska, who is also co-owner of website Bloody Disgusting Tom Owen and Will Clevinger also produce. Cinematographer Joseph White is utilizing the latest anamorphic lenses to achieve the look of the film. White recently completed both MOTHER’S DAY and 11-11-11 for director Darren Lynn Bousman.

Eric Stolze penned the screenplay from a story he co-developed with Miska.

“I grew up watching great movies from the ’80s where kids took on adult problems and mature themes. That is what we are trying to recreate,” says Miller.

“I’m thrilled to be working with Steven C. Miller on an original horror film that will excite both fans of the genre and casual moviegoers alike,” says Site B president and executive producer Zak Zeman.

Practical effects will be provided by Vincent J. Guastini. LIT will be taking on VFX duties.

Weston recently completed JOHN DIES AT THE END for PHANTASM director Don Coscarelli. Griffith starred in Universal Pictures’ CHANGELING and can be seen this summer as the “young” Hal Jordan in Warner Bros. Pictures’ GREEN LANTERN. Holden recently completed DROWNING and was seen in THE SOCIAL NETWORK.

Brad Miska and Tom Owen founded Bloody-Disgusting.com, the largest horror website and community online. Steven C. Miller, who broke onto the horror scene with his kinetic AUTOMATON TRANSFUSION, is repped by Adam Goldworm at Aperture Entertainment and Charles Ferraro at UTA.

The critically acclaimed horror-comedy Better Watch Out debuted on Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD December 5 from Well Go USA Entertainment.

This holiday season you may be home, but you’re not alone… In this fresh and gleefully twisted spin on home-invasion horror, babysitter Ashley (Olivia DeJonge) must defend her young charges (Levi Miller, Ed Oxenbould ) when intruders break into the house one snowy night – or so she thinks.

AMC Reveals When The Walking Dead’s Last Stand Will Begin

Published

on

Last night “The Walking Dead” took one of its biggest detours yet from the storyline of the comics on which the series is based, but you won’t find any spoilers here aside for a peek at the show’s midseason return trailer.  In addition to the video, we have confirmation of when Episode 8.09 will be airing… read on for the details of when our survivors’ last stand begins!

Season 8 of “The Walking Dead” resumes on Sunday, February 25th, at 9/8c.  While you wait, if you’re not totally caught up, you can binge all the latest episodes on AMC.com or the AMC app.

Season 8 Synopsis:
Last season Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and his group of survivors were confronted with their deadliest challenge yet. With the comfort of Alexandria, they let their guard down, only to be reminded how brutal the world they live in can be.

Feeling powerless under Negan’s (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) rules and demands, Rick advocated the group play along. But seeing that Negan couldn’t be reasoned with, Rick began rallying together other communities affected by the Saviors. And with the support of the Hilltop and Kingdom, they finally have enough fire power to contest the Saviors.

This season Rick brings “All Out War” to Negan and his forces. The Saviors are larger, better-equipped, and ruthless — but Rick and the unified communities are fighting for the promise of a brighter future. The battle lines are drawn as they launch into a kinetic, action-packed offensive.

Up until now, survival has been the focus of Rick and our group, but it’s not enough. They have to fight to take back their freedom so that they can live. So that they can rebuild. As with any battle, there will be losses. Casualties. But with Rick leading the Alexandrian forces, Maggie (Lauren Cohan) leading the Hilltop, and King Ezekiel (Khary Payton) leading the Kingdom — Negan and the Saviors’ grip on this world may finally be coming to an end.
