New Teaser for A Quiet Place Says a Lot While Saying Very Little

Published

on

A new teaser for the upcoming post-apocalyptic horror/thriller A Quiet Place has been released ahead of its TV presentation during tonight’s Superbowl and it gets a lot across without saying very much at all. In the teaser, we see brief glimpses on the events that led to us watching the John Krasinski/Emily Blunt family who must survive in a world that requires total silence. If any noise is issued, there is a chance that some as-yet-unknown creature will begin its hunt, not stopping until it has something within its grasp.

The film will be the opening night entry at this year’s SXSW festival in Austin, TX. It will then open wide on April 6.

Krasinski directs from a script originally written by Bryan Woods and Scott Beck (Krasinski rewrote it prior to directing). Blunt and Krasinski star alongside Noah Jupe and Millicent Simmonds.

Dread Central Presents Screening of Terrifier Offers College Credits at MSU

Published

on

Not only is Dread Central Presents aiming to bring audiences some of the best and most interesting independent genre films, it turns out now that it can also help your education!

In March, Montclair State University will be hosting its third installment of their “Friday Night Frights” monthly series, which brings lectures, screenings, and Q&A’s to the university’s brand new School of Communication and Media. So far, they’ve hosted David Bruckner’s The Ritual and Just Benson & Aaron Moorhead’s The Endless. Next month, FNF will be hosting the Dread Central Presents screening of Damien Leone’s Terrifier, a modern slasher that may be the most gruesome and shocking film of its kind in several years! But what makes this screening so interesting is that the screening has earned “colloquium status”, which means that all attendees will receive college credit!

Former Fangoria editor-in-chief Ken Hanley will be hosting the event, which will include a live Q&A with Leone and select cast after the screening. He states, “I am completely shocked, in the best way, that the students of Montclair State University, will have the opportunity to receive educational credit for seeing easily the most insane modern slasher film I’ve ever seen. It’s truly a privilege to be able to let people laugh, gasp, and squirm in their seats, all for the sake of academia. As someone who previously ran late night movie screenings during my time as a student at MSU, I feel like this is a real ‘full circle’ moment, and I’m incredibly grateful to Susan Skoog, Rob Galluzzo, and everyone at both The Film Institute at Montclair State and Dread Central Presents for making it a reality.

Susan Skoog, director of programming at Montclair’s newly minted Film Institute, adds, “Some of the most interesting and inventive independent filmmakers today are making horror films. They are undeniably elevating the genre. The Film Institute at Montclair State has a mission to not only celebrate classic films and filmmakers, but also to educate a new generation of young filmmakers by exposing them to cutting edge and innovative films. We are honored and thrilled to introduce our students to film artists like Damien Leone, who are certainly advancing the horror genre.

The MSU event will take place March 23 at 8pm in Presentation Hall 1040 of the School of Communication and Media. Details can be found at MSU’s website.

Terrifier stars Jenna Kanell (The Bye Bye Man), Catie Corcoran (Return to Nuke ‘Em High), and David Howard Thornton (“Gotham”) as Art the Clown.

The Strangers: Prey at Night Set Visit Part 1: The Trailer Park

Published

on

Down the backroads of northern Kentucky sits 55 acres of hilly land where a neighborhood once stood. The asphalt that crisscrosses through the area is all that’s left. The streets are void of lights, and the plots where houses once stood are now visited mainly by fireflies and deer. Decades ago the homes were demolished, but something else has a home here. Something is stalking in the shadows: The Strangers.

Once someone has traveled far enough into this deserted community, a thriving production can be found. A new population has taken over, breathing life into the land. The cast and crew of The Strangers: Prey at Night have created a living, breathing residential setting for the next installment of the popular slasher flick. Since the land was devoid of everything aside from trees and paved roads, Aviron Pictures had a blank canvas in which to create the setting for the film.

The Strangers: Prey at Night takes place at an unspecified time after the original, but the new setting does share the same isolated feel. Gatlin Lake Getaway is the fictional trailer park where Baghead, Dollface, and Pinup find their new batch of victims. To create a community comprised of mobile homes from scratch, production designer Freddy Waff had to do a healthy amount of legwork. Twenty-two mobile homes were saved from being scrapped and stationed throughout the defunct neighborhood. Each home was dressed inside and out complete with gravel driveways, street lights, lawn furniture and a dose of isolation.

Imagery that comes to mind when the term ‘trailer park’ is mention usually means a number of rectangular homes packed right next to each other row after row. In Gatlin Lake, however, the homes have a good quarter-acre between each. It is entirely believable that something horrible may happen in one trailer without the closest neighbor even having the slightest inkling that something is amiss.

Synopsis:
A family’s road trip takes a dangerous turn when they arrive at a secluded mobile home park to stay with some relatives and find it mysteriously deserted. Under the cover of darkness, three masked psychopaths pay them a visit to test the family’s every limit as they struggle to survive..
