TIFF 2014: New Cub Trailer Is Far from Cute and CuddlyWorld premiering as part of the Midnight Madness portion of the Toronto International Film Festival (September 4-14) is the new film from Jonas Govaerts entitled Cub, and we have your first look at the trailer right here courtesy of The Playlist.

Cub – Jonas Govaerts, Belgium – World Premiere
Cub is a horror adventure in which a young imaginative twelve-year-old boy named Sam heads off to camp with his Cub Scouts pack, leaders Peter and Chris, and quartermaster Yasmin. Once they enter the woods, Sam quickly feels something is not quite right. He soon stumbles upon a mysterious tree house and meets a shifty, masked feral-looking child.

When Sam tries to warn his leaders, they ignore him: The boy often tells tall tales, and Sam’s mysterious past, which he refuses to talk about, makes leader Peter mistrust him. As Sam gets more and more isolated from the other scouts, he becomes convinced a terrible fate awaits them: The feral child, it turns out, is the helper of the poacher, an evil psychopath, who has riddled the forest with ingenious traps and is intent on slaughtering the scouts… one by one.

Tickets to screenings for this programme will be available for individual purchase as well as through the Midnight Madness Pack, which includes all 10 screenings for $180, or $145 for students and seniors. Purchase Festival ticket packages online 24 hours a day at tiff.net or by phone from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. ET daily at 416.599.TIFF or 1.888.599.8477.

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:

Dread Central Assembles Ghost Hunters to Investigate the Winchester Mystery House

Published

on

On Friday, February 2nd, Winchester: The House That Ghosts Built arrives in theaters. The film, directed by Michael and Peter Spierig and starring Helen Mirren, is based on actual events.

While many movies claiming to be based on true stories are actually highly fictionalized, that’s not the case this time. The subject, Sarah Winchester was real; the location, a labyrinthine mansion, still stands. And tonight, we’re being given unprecedented access to “The House That Ghosts Built”. Our goal: To determine if the estate deserves its reputation as one of the most haunted locations in America.

While the Winchester Mystery House, as it’s now known, sees visitors almost every day, we’re conducting our investigation after hours—at night. Not only does this opportunity afford us a more intimate experience, we’re being allowed into areas restricted to the general public. We’ve assembled a team of some of the country’s leading paranormal investigators and psychic mediums, who will attempt a variety of techniques in order to detect the supernatural entities long rumored to roam these halls.

Tim Wood is a paranormal investigator and founder of the TV series In Search of the Paranormal which launched in 2006; he’ll be bringing his team members Kristen Manning, a medium who uses her drawing talents to tap into supernatural vibrations, and Patrick Langdon, an investigator who utilizes special cameras to detect paranormal remnants.

Tim Meunier is the founder of American Paranormal Investigations as well as the founder of both the Sacramento Horror Film Festival and the bi-annual Sinister Creature Con. Michael B. Chochla is a medium and member of River City Paranormal and Michelle Goyette has been working as a professional spiritualist for over 5 years, specializing in connecting the living with loved ones who have passed over.

The estate is so complex, a previously undocumented room was discovered as recently as 2016, so there’s truly no telling what awaits us within.

We’ll be joined by an on-site historian and a camera crew who will document our entire visit. Whether we come away with answers to some of the Winchester Mystery House’s most enduring secrets remains to be seen, but we’ll be sharing the results of our investigation in the days leading up to the release of Winchester: The House That Ghosts Built. Stay tuned!

About The Winchester Mystery House: “Since 1923 the story of Sarah Winchester and her incredibly peculiar house has fascinated more than 12 million people from around the world who have toured its lonely hallways, dark passages and ornate rooms. Come and be intrigued by this truly American tale with its combination of the beautiful and the bizarre, its narrative of heartbreak, tenacity and invention and its flourishes of the paranormal and spirits.”

Here’s what you can expect on a Mansion Tour“Sarah Winchester was a true woman of independence, drive, and courage who lives on in legend as a grieving widow who continuously built (and built and built) onto her initially small, two-story farmhouse to appease the spirits of those killed by the guns manufactured by her husband’s firearms company.

 “Today you can tour through 110 of the 160 rooms of Sarah’s stately mansion, known around the world as the Winchester Mystery House, and see the bizarre attributes that give the mansion its name; a window built into the floor, stairs leading to ceilings, doors that open onto blank walls, a seeming obsession with the numeral “13,” cobweb motifs, etc.”
