It’s always interesting to see bigger outlets like Variety reporting stories about horror movies that we reported on over a year ago as if the news were well … new.

In any event … Variety just broke the news that Absentia director Mike Flanagan will direct the feature length version of his short film, Oculus. The real news story isn’t that. It’s the production finally having an idea of when they will begin … for the record it’s late summer of 2012 for Intrepid.

An expansion of the award-winning short film by Mike Flanagan and Jeff Seidman, Oculus will tell the story of Tim and Kylie Russel, siblings reunited for the first time since a brutal murder-suicide shattered their family and their childhoods.

Institutionalized for most of his life, Tim has come to terms with the tragedy that befell his parents, but Kylie is convinced that the strange, ornate mirror that hung in her father’s study had a supernatural influence over the violent events. Now she’s tracked the mirror down to an auction house basement and is determined to prove the truth about its powers both to her brother and to the world. As she does, the past bleeds into the present, the ghosts of their childhood are awakened, and they must confront the truth about their shared past at the risk of their sanity…or maybe even their lives.

Zac Efron Looks Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile as Ted Bundy

Published

We told you a while back that Zac Efron would be assuming the role of charismatic serial killer Ted Bundy in Oscar-nominated documentary filmmaker Joe Berlinger’s new film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (that title is a wondrous mouthful); and today Efron himself took to Twitter to share the first image of himself as Bundy. Check it out!

Michael Werwie wrote the script for the project, which is told through the perspective of Elizabeth Kloepfer, Bundy’s longtime girlfriend, who went years denying the accusations against Bundy but ultimately turned him in to the police. Only nearing his execution, when Bundy began talking about his extensive and heinous murders, did Kloepfer, and the rest of the world, learn the true scope of his numerous and grizzly murders.

Principal photography began back in October 2017.

Make a Date With The Devil and Father Amorth

Published

Well, that headline’s not entirely accurate… you wouldn’t want to be a third wheel now, would you? What we’re talking about here is William Friedkin’s new documentary The Devil and Father Amorth. In it Friedkin witnesses first-hand the work of the Vatican’s in-house exorcist; and if that doesn’t pique your interest, I don’t know what will!

Deadline is reporting today that we can expect to see the flick sometime this spring in theaters via The Orchard.

Known as the “Dean of Exorcists,” Father Amorth (who turned 92 not so long ago) has performed thousands of exorcism rituals to rid evil from the human body.

In the early 1970s when I directed The Exorcist, I had not witnessed an exorcism; but I wondered how close I had come to portraying reality,” Friedkin tells the site. “I had been curious to meet Father Amorth for many years; and when he granted permission to meet and film him in Rome last May, it was the opportunity to complete the circle and see how close that film came to reality.
