Devil’s Tree: Rooted Evil – Exclusive Trailer, Stills, Poster and More

Published

on

Urban legends are often conjured from reality. Cases in point: Candyman’s roots lay in the true life 1974 crimes of Houston, Texas’ Robert O’Bryan, who murdered his son with a cyanide-laced Pixy Stik on Halloween night, while Pittsburgh’s boogeyman “Charlie No-Face,” a deformed monster who purportedly prowled the city at night, was in actuality resident Raymond Robison, who having suffered horrific burns as a child while horsing around on an electrified trolley bridge, did just that, in the hopes that he wouldn’t terrify the daytime populace. Rich, if not macabre, territory to mine, certainly, and that creative tradition is set to continue with the independent feature film Devil’s Tree: Rooted Evil, loosely based on a solitary and supposedly cursed oak tree which resides in Port St. Lucie, Florida.

Co-written and directed by Chris Alonso and Joshua Louis from a story from the latter, Devil’s Tree: Rooted Evil stars Maddy Curley, Eddie Kaulukukui and Roberto Escobar, and according to the feature’s official synopsis, revolves around, “Samantha (Curley), a college student studying journalism, who needs to finish her thesis with one last breaking news story. Along with her friend Rob, Samantha stumbles across a news article about an old tree in a local park where many horrible acts occurred. The locals have given the tree the name Devils Tree because of its urban legends of mass murders, satanic rituals, and paranormal activity. She decides this is the perfect story to finish her thesis on. As Sam digs deeper into the realm of the tree, she begins to uncover the truth about these urban legends. Struggling with her own demons of her past, Samantha is confronted with the true demon of the tree and now must expose the truth in hopes to set it free. In the end, Samantha finds the real reason why evil is so rooted at The Devil’s Tree.”

Produced by Jonathan Phillips and Matt Weight, release info for Devil’s Tree: Rooted Evil is forthcoming. In the meantime, check out stills and the rather cool trailer below, and for more, visit the film on its official site at www.devilstreemovie.com.

Published

on

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.

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.

Artist Reimagines Superheroes as Tim Burton Illustrations

Published

on

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.
