Interactive iPhone App The Hunting Arrives This Week!A few months back we told you about an interactive app called The Hunting, which makes YOU the star of your own horror movie – forced to battle for survival against angry zombies. The app is launching this week, and you can whet your appetite with all the gory details below!

From the Press Release
The world’s first fully interactive ‘movie-app’ is being released for the iPhone on October 24th, and test audiences are calling it the world’s scariest app.

Shot entirely on an iPhone 4S and nearly two years in the making, there has never been anything like this before. A fully interactive live-action movie where you tap and swipe to fight the living dead. A terrifying first-person movie with a bone-chilling soundtrack. YOU are the main character, YOU make the decisions, YOU fight off the living dead and YOU live or die based on your actions.

Harnessing a large team, combining volunteers with up-and-coming talent from the UK film industry, The Hunting was created with two things in mind – a love of zombies and a desire to create something unique and terrifying. A true interactive movie.

We dare you to play it alone with headphones in the dark.

From award-winning director Allan Plenderleith and multi-million downloaded app developer Jason Stewart. Released on the iPhone app store by Wotsamaflip Studios Ltd.

Starring Chloe Partridge, Simon Sparks, Keith Tucker and Nick Clarke.

Synopsis
You awaken one morning to an apocalyptic world where an antibiotic resistant stain of bacteria has turned everyone, but a small few, into the undead. You hear a disturbing sound downstairs. Something is in your house. What do you do? You investigate. A figure stands in the kitchen. Suddenly it lunges, attacking, biting, fighting. You fight it off, grab your phone and try to escape. But every decision is crucial, and you can’t think straight with the sound of your own heartbeat pounding in your skull. You phone your girlfriend, you can’t get through, so you listen to her message. She’s being attacked. She’s near the farmhouse. You have to help her. NOW!

The Hunting: Part One is free and will be available exclusively in the Apple iTunes App Store on October 24. Parts 2 and 3 will follow soon thereafter. For more information, “like” The Hunting on Facebook!

Jack Huston and Tessa Ferrer Join Stephen King’s Mr. Mercedes Season 2

Published

on

Three months back we let you guys know that Stephen King’s “Mr. Mercedes” TV series had been renewed for a second season. And today we have some casting news.

Insidious: The Last Key star Tessa Ferrer is set as a series regular opposite Jack Huston, with production set to begin in Charleston, SC next month.

We have further info on Tessa’s character via Deadline: “Ferrer will play Cora Babineau, wife of Dr. Felix Babineau (Huston) and head of marketing at a major pharmaceutical corporation, who’s even more ambitious than she is beautiful. If her husband has a genius for manipulating people from the inside out as he reaches into their brains and rewires them, Cora has a genius for influencing people from the outside in. Her beauty, brains, and force of will, judiciously softened with poise and extreme charm, make her a formidable saleswoman of whatever she’s peddling.”

What did you think of Season 1 of “Mr. Mercedes”? Let us know below!

The second season will also be based on King’s “Bill Hodges Trilogy” (Mr. Mercedes, Finders Keepers, and End of Watch) and hits AT&T Audience Network this summer.

Season 1 Synopsis:
Demented killer Brady Hartsfield (Harry Treadaway) taunts retired police detective Bill Hodges (Brendan Gleeson) with a series of lurid letters and emails, forcing the ex-cop to undertake a private, and potentially felonious, crusade to bring the killer to justice before he is able to strike again.

Razzies 2018: Transformers: The Last Knight Edges Out The Mummy in Nominations!

Published

The Razzie Award

The film industry as a whole has always treated the horror genre like some misshapen creature that they keep tucked away in a closet a la The Brain That Wouldn’t Die. It doesn’t matter how much horror films make at the box office or how many countless moviegoing seasons we’ve saved for Hollywood… hell, the powers-that-be rarely even acknowledge the fact that some horror movies are even horror movies. They’re “psychological thrillers” or some silly jargon like that. Whatever, right?

At least once a year, though, the film industry takes a moment to make fun of itself as a whole. Lord knows they don’t mind including us on these auspicious occasions! In any event… this year’s Golden Raspberry Awards (aka The Razzies) nominees have been announced, and we have them for you below. Both Transformers: The Last Knight and Universal’s Dark Universe reboot of The Mummy are leading the wack-pack in terms of nods.

Jessica Rothe Compares Happy Death Day 2 to Back to the Future

Published

on

One of the best surprises of last year was Blumhouse’s Happy Death Day starring Jessica Rothe as a girl stuck in a Groundhog Day-style time loop where she keeps getting murdered by a masked slasher.

The PG-13 teen horror flick was a blast and I’m looking forward to any news on the possible sequel Happy Death Day 2. Speaking of which, last week Rothe spoke to Collider about the film’s planned sequel and had some very interesting tidbits to drop.

“[Director Chris Landon] has done this incredible thing where the sequel, the way he described it to me, elevates the movie from being a horror movie – and I wouldn’t even say it’s just a horror movie because it’s a horror, comedy, rom-com drama – into a Back to the Future type of genre film where the sequel joins us right from where we left off, it explains a lot of things in the first one that didn’t get explained, and it elevates everything,” Rothe said. “I was really pleased to know that we weren’t just gonna be pushing all the buttons that people loved the first time, over and over again, ‘cause I think that gets old. I’m really excited to see if it comes to fruition and, if it does, what the final product looks like. I hope we get to do it! I had a ball!”

A Back to the Future-style slasher movie?? I’m in. I’m there. Where do I sign up? What did you think of Blumhouse’s Happy Death Day and are you excited about a possible sequel? Let us know below!

The original film was directed by Christopher Landon from a screenplay he wrote with Scott Lobdell. The film stars Jessica Rothe, Israel Broussard, Ruby Modine, Charles Aitken, and Rachel Matthews.

Synopsis:

A college student who relives the day of her murder with both its unexceptional details and terrifying end until she discovers her killer’s identity.
