Exclusive Festival Trailer Debut - The Paranormal Diaries: ClophillTime to kick off your week with a nice sampling of spooky as we have landed the official festival trailer for Michael Bartlett and Kevin Gates’ The Paranormal Diaries: Clophill (review). Saddle up, kids, and get set for your exclusive first look!

“We shot The Paranormal Diaries: Clophill during the pre-production of Zombie Diaries 2 when there were a whole series of setbacks with funding the sequel,” says Kevin Gates. “During the pre-production period I was itching to get something shot, and there was just time to squeeze in an ‘in-between’ film. The idea of taking back control, making the kind of film we wanted and could take our time over, was very appealing.”

Gates continues, “I grew up in an area of Bedfordshire in the UK rich in legends of witchcraft and knew of a local ruin that had a history of black magic and the occult and always thought it had potential for a film. So I started doing some research. It wasn’t long before an approach to the film was established. Something that contained a Zombie Diaries flavour, but which mixed it with a real legend and true accounts of Aleister Crowley-esque goings-on up at an isolated ruined church. Clophill is a sleepy Bedfordshire village and was a famous occult landmark in the 1960s and 1970s. Even today you get scores of teenagers going up there to scare themselves every night. And I was surprised that no one had done a serious film on the place before. So I assembled a small crew and several real witnesses to events up there of both witchcraft and ghostly sightings.”

“We spent a long weekend up at Clophill – interviewing locals, witnesses, and experts and conducting experiments at night, setting up cameras, Ouija boards, ghost boxes, all manner of bizarre contraptions to see if there really was anything to the legend. Within that framework I also wrote in a dark story of the occult and paranormal, which Mike and I directed. So what you’re seeing is a real mix of fact and fiction. It has a Lake Mungo / Paranormal Activity flavour but mixes that with a true legend and real witness accounts.”

Yep, we are ALL OVER this one!

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



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



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.
