Post Thumb:


Malignant New Artwork!The 13th Annual Shriekfest Film Festival was taken by storm by director Brian Avenet-Bradley’s film Malignant, and the good news is you’ll finally be able to see the flick soon courtesy of Gravitas Ventures! We’ve been pumping out a steady stream of goodies for this one, and now we have the official artwork! Dig it!

From the Press Release
Gravitas Ventures has acquired all U.S. and Canadian VOD rights to MALIGNANT, the tense horror-thriller that was written and directed by Brian Avenet-Bradley (DARK REMAINS).

The film stars Brad Dourif (CHILD’S PLAY series, LORD OF THE RINGS series), Gary Cairns (DAYLIGHT’S END), Nick Nicotera (DUMBBELLS), and Sienna Farall (INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 2). The film was produced by Laurence Avenet-Bradley (DARK REMAINS) and executive produced by Modernciné’s Andrew van den Houten (JUG FACE, ALL CHEERLEADERS DIE).

The movie will debut May 22 as a VOD premiere from Gravitas Ventures on all major cable and digital VOD platforms, including Comcast XFINITY, Time Warner, Bright House, Cox, Charter On Demand, Verizon, Dish Network, Mediacom, Suddenlink, RCN, Optimum, Frontier, Rogers On Demand, Shaw, Cogeco and EastLink TV, as well as iTunes, Google Play, YouTube, PlayStation, VUDU, Amazon Video and Xbox. There will also be a theatrical screening on Wednesday, May 28, at 7:30 at the Silent Movie Theater in Hollywood.

A grieving man, Allex (CAIRNS), falls victim to a rogue Doctor (DOURIF) who conducts experiments on human test subjects to cure their “addictions.” After blacking out, Allex awakes to find stitches across his chest and a video of a murder. Now he must confront the Doctor’s horrific method for stopping him from drinking… a method with deadly consequences.

The deal for the U.S. VOD rights was negotiated by Gravitas Ventures’ Mia Bruno and Andrew van den Houten of Modern Distributors, on behalf of Modernciné and Avenet Images.

“As a fan of both Brian and Laurence’s work, I am thrilled our continued relationship with Gravitas will allow for MALIGNANT to finally reach our fans. Brad Dourif and Gary Cairns do a fabulous job in this suspenseful horror yarn,” said van den Houten.

“After seeing MALIGNANT at Shriekfest this year, we knew we’d love to work on this one. Brian and Laurence bring a practiced and chilling eye to the film, and Brad Dourif achieves another in a long line of gloriously creepy roles,” said Bruno.

Additional rights have yet to be assigned and will be announced shortly.

PG-13 or R? The Strangers: Prey at Night Gets Official MPAA Rating



Earlier this week we let you guys know that there is a killer The Strangers: Prey at Night fan art competition going on and you can read all the details on that right HERE.

But today we have some cool (if expected) news that The Strangers: Prey At Night hs officially received an R-rating from the MPAA.

The sequel has been rated R for “horror violence and terror throughout, and for language” and I think that makes about as much sense as we could have expected.

For those who are interested in such bits of trivia, the original The Strangers was rated R for “violence/terror and language” so there you go! Impress your friends with MPAA trivia.

Would The Strangers: Prey at Night getting a PG-13 have affected your enthusiasm for the upcoming film? Let us know below!

The Stranger: Prey at Night is directed by Johannes Roberts (47 Meters Down) from a script by Bryan Bertino and Ben Ketai. It stars Martin Henderson, Christina Hendricks, Bailee Madison, and Lewis Pullman.

The film hits March 9, 2018.

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. Johannes Roberts directs this horror film inspired by the 2008 smash hit The Strangers.

Artist Reimagines Superheroes as Tim Burton Illustrations



The world of Tim Burton has always been full of imagination and wonder built on a surreal and often horrific foundation. Films like Beetlejuice and Sleepy Hollow capture the imagination with stunning visuals, all based on the mind of the visionary director. Burton’s artwork was also featured in his illustrated poetry book The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy & Other Stories.

Burton’s work has not only amazed viewers for over three decades, it’s also been an inspiration to countless artists and creators. Enter Los Angeles-by-way-of-Russia artist and animator Andrew Tarusov, whose work has been used by companies such as Cosmopolitan, Disney, 20th Century Fox, Maxim, and more. In a series he simply calls “Tim Burton’s Superheros”, Tarusov took 10 of the biggest comic book characters and gave them a dark twist that is 100% befitting of Burton’s style.

You can see a gallery of these images below. To see more of Tarusov’s work, head on over to his official website.
