The first footage from three upcoming horror flicks was shown at the currently kicking ass New York Comic Con, and our own Paul Nomad and Heather Buckley were there typing away like loonies. Read on for what was shown from The Bay, Beautiful Creatures, and The Conjuring.
Two very quick clips from The Bay were shown to the audience. It wasn’t much but it definitely had people squirming. The first featured tiny Isopods eating a fish from the inside out, and the second showcased the same Isopods crawling beneath a little girl’s skin and she’s reaching for help.
The Bay stars Will Rogers, Stephen Kunken, Kether Donohue, Frank Deal, and Kristen Connolly, and was directed by Barry Levinson.
Look for it in theaters and available on VOD November 2, 2012, from Roadside Attractions
The quaint seaside town of Chesapeake Bay thrives on water; it is the lifeblood of the community. When two biological researchers from France find a staggering level of toxicity in the water, they attempt to alert the mayor, but he refuses to create a panic in the docile town. As a result, a deadly plague is unleashed, turning the people of Chesapeake Bay into hosts for a mutant breed of parasites that take control of their minds, and eventually their bodies. A brutal and harrowing creature feature for the 21st century, THE BAY chronicles the descent of a small town into absolute terror.
Next up was Beautiful Creatures whose footage was shown b-roll style with behind-the-scenes moments which were cut together quickly… kids in a class room and the windows explode in on them… a dining sequence with the witches and the table is spinning and the chandelier is rocking. The walls are covered in vines… seems to be the witches’ house… people kissing… beautiful costumes… a woman with a dress covered in butterflies and some on her face… a man dressed as the sky.
Alden Ehrenreich and Alice Englert star as Ethan and Lena, teenage lovers who uncover dark secrets about their families, their history and their town. Margo Martindale plays Lena’s Aunt Del, who helps to protect her from the family’s dark side. Zoey Deutch portrays Emily Asher, Ethan’s ex-girlfriend and the ringleader of the high school’s popular clique that conspires against Lena. The film co-stars Jeremy Irons, Viola Davis, Emma Thompson, Emmy Rossum, Kyle Gallner, and Project X star Thomas Mann.
Look for Beautiful Creatures in theaters on February 13, 2013.
And finally a trailer and clip from James Wan’s The Conjuring, which tells the tales of one of the most infamous paranormal cases from investigative icons Ed and Lorraine Warren, were shown.
The trailer opens with grainy footage of people going into a cellar… same footage showed to an audience… cuts to creepy grainy black and white photographs and a broken vintage doll (of course!) Ed and Lorraine Warren meet the family… sequence of scary events… Ed and Lorraine pass a tree. Lorraine sees what looks like a witch’s legs bloodied and scarred… hanging behind Ed… people flying across the kitchen… a hand print appearing on a family member’s arm… an evil figure jumping off the top of a closet… and Lorraine talking to a family member looking at a music box with a clown face in it, and when she looks in its mirror, an evil woman is reflected behind her. Cut to black.
Full clip: Exterior farm house… mother and daughter playing hide and seek and the daughter… young… wraps a red bandana over the mother’s eyes and tells her to go find her. The daughter claps and the mother has to follow the sound. The girl runs and hides. Mother is listening for claps and goes into the daughter’s room and the closet door opens and we hear a clap… no one is inside. She calls out to her daughter and no one answers. She hears a horrible crashing noise… goes out of the room and takes off her blindfold and sees all the family portraits on the steps are shattered… glass all over the stairs. The mom walks down the stairs and the clock chimes go off… clapping is heard again… mom calls out. “Who is that?” The house is dimly lit. Down the hall a door opens to the basement. Claps heard again. Mother goes towards the door and steps inside. The basement lightbulb shatters and goes dark. The door closes on her and she falls down the steps. She’s hurt and terrified… goes to light a match, and the evil looking woman appears behind her. Cut to black.
