Danny Trejo on the Scene of a Murder in the Woods – Exclusive Trailer Premiere and More!



The juggernaut that is Danny Trejo continues to cut a swath of lunacy through our genre and we’re all the better for it! Next up we have the exclusive trailer, poster, and details on his latest film, Murder in the Woods from director/producer Luis Iga.

The film, from writer/producer Yelyna De Leon and director Luis Iga, stars Trejo alongside José Julián, Jeanette Samano, Kade Wise, Jordan Diambrini, Catherine Toribio, and Chelsea Rendon.

The film will be having its premiere at the TCL Chinese Theaters in Los Angeles on Saturday Nov 4th at 2:15pm. If you’re in the area you can get your tickets here.

My goal is to create, execute and deliver stories that reach, entertain and immerse audiences,” says Iga. “I developed that passion and my creativity at a very young age. As a child, I developed a passion for filmmaking, photography, sculpture, printmaking, and multimedia. I recall borrowing my father’s beta camera to shoot sequences with my G.I. Joe figures and buying fireworks at the corner store to recreate scenes with visual effect mini-explosions. Additionally, by the age of twelve, I designed the brand identity for Ropa Modelo, S.A. a jean company in Mexico.

This multi-artistic background is what has fuels my vision as a filmmaker. The stories I like to tell are inspired by true stories, my experiences or by recreating an experience that I enjoy. For example, I am a big fan of roller coasters and how they make me feel. In my opinion that’s what Horror and Slasher films are all about. To immerse and audience in a wild ride that will make them jump and scream.

Iga continues, “I realized that this type of film had never been done in English where Latinos and people of color are the leads and they are not portrayed in stereotypical ways. This is why while developing this indie feature, I was very conscious of making sure that there would be a diverse cast in lead roles. My goal was to make sure that we could tell a story that would showcase the talent of up and coming actors of color. That was a very important for both my producing partner and I. This film showcases the talents of our young diverse cast and I’m proud to say that we have made the first “All American Slasher” with a full diverse cast in non-stereotypical roles.
I hope you enjoy my passion and hard work in the stories I tell.

Soon after arriving to a mysterious cabin in the woods, a group of teens discover the dark secret it holds, which forces them to fight for their lives.

New Alien First-Person Shooter Video Game in the Works



“Game over, man. Game over!”

I’m not one for playing video games but even I will have to check out this new first-person shooter set in the Alien universe currently in the works at FoxNext Games.

This new and untitled game is the first original Alien-inspired game since “Alien: Isolation” and Cold Iron Studios is developing the game after recently being acquired by Fox (and now Disney).

“Cold Iron Studios has amazing design, craftsmanship, and development talent that we are excited to welcome at FoxNext Games as we pursue our goal to build a multi-platform, multi-genre portfolio of great games,” said FoxNext Games president Aaron Loeb. “I am a personal fan of Cold Iron’s previous work and all of us at FoxNext Games are thrilled to be working with them as they create an action-packed persistent world, steeped in the mysteries of this beloved Alien universe.”

“We believe in FoxNext’s vision and we are thrilled about the opportunity to explore an amazing and rich universe,” said Cold Iron CEO Craig Zinkievich. “Our background in building online worlds and taking established franchises to the next level in interactive entertainment is a precise fit with our product roadmap ahead.”

Poster Debut: Nicolas Pesce’s Piercing Starring Mia Wasikowska and Christopher Abbott



One of the films that I’m most interested in hearing the feedback about during this year’s Sundance film festival is director Nicolas Pesce’s psychological horror-comedy Piercing.

Not only did Pesce’s last flick The Eyes of My Mother impress the hell out of me but his new film boasts a killer premise and cast including Mia Wasikowska (Stoker) and Christopher Abbott (It Comes at Night).

The movie will be premiering at Sundance this weekend and today we have the film’s poster to share with you guys. You can click on the poster to the right for a higher-res version.

After checking it out let us know what you think!

Piercing is based on the critically acclaimed cult novel by Ryu Murakami and directed by Nicolas Pesce (The Eyes of My Mother) and stars Mia Wasikowska (Stoker) and Christopher Abbott (It Comes at Night).

The film hosts its World Premiere at the Sundance Film Festival Saturday, January 20th.


Reed (Christopher Abbott) is going on a business trip. He kisses his wife and infant son goodbye, but in lieu of a suitcase filled with clothes, he’s packed a toothbrush and a murder kit. Everything is meticulously planned: check into a hotel and kill an unsuspecting victim. Only then will he rid himself of his devious impulses and continue to be a good husband and father. But Reed gets more than he bargained for with Jackie (Mia Wasikowska), an alluring call girl who arrives at his room. First, they relax and get in the mood, but when there’s an unexpected disruption, the balance of control begins to sway back and forth between the two. Is he seeing things? Who’s playing whom? Before the night is over, a feverish nightmare will unfold, and Reed and Jackie will seal their bond in blood.
