Just yesterday we got our first glimpse at the awesome new poster for Leigh Janiak’s horror debut Honeymoon, and now we’ve got the full length trailer to lay our eyes on, offering a better look at Janiak’s atmospheric chiller. While the festival trailer left a lot of the film’s story up in the air, this one here focuses its attention on Bea, played by Rose Leslie, who finds something sinister in the woods.

Honeymoon-stillk-2-_paulnigh

Leigh Janiak’s Honeymoon, starring Game of Thrones’ Rose Leslie, made some noise at the SXSW Film Festival this past spring, and now we’ve got a ridiculously cool poster for the film that teases: After the ceremony comes the ritual. Obviously, things don’t go too well for the newlywed couple after they head out to a cabin in the woods to spend their honeymoon. The new poster is fantastic, proving once again that indie horror houses some of the best movie art the genre has to offer. Continue Reading…

grizzly23

David Hackl’s killer bear film now has a trailer under the name of Grizzly, which is actually the third title the film has settled on. At first it was known as Red Machine then it went to Endangered before finally landing on what we see here. Why they continue to avoid the original title of Red Machine blows my mind. There’s so much weight to that title because it was a reference to what the film was inspired by—Timothy Treadwell aka ‘Grizzly Man’ and his tragic end. He named all the bears he came across but one in particular he named ‘The Big Red machine’ and it was the only bear that truly scared him. Continue Reading…

TheShining

The prequel to Stanley Kubrick’s classic The Shining has found its first victim in director Mark Romanek, who is in negotiations to helm Overlook Hotel, reports Variety. That’s not the first name we’ve seen get attached to the project, however, as we learned back in May that Alfonso Cuarón had supposedly been approached to bring this one to life. Apparently, all the rumors swirling around that Cuarón could be the man behind the camera of Overlook Hotel turned out to be totally false. Bummer. That being said, Romanek is a solid choice who’s work you might be most familiar with is 2010′s Never Let Me Go. Continue Reading…

Jeff Baena had the difficult task of uglying up the wonderful Aubrey Plaza for his zombie-comedy Life After Beth, a charming indie film that stars Dane DeHaan as Zach, who finds out that his deceased girlfriend mysteriously returns from the dead. And although her mind and body are slowly decaying, he takes this opportunity to fall in love with her all over again… until she gets a hunger for human flesh. Baena’s undead take on falling in love creates a charming wrinkle in the zombie genre as it shines a light on a couple with a second chance at love. Continue Reading…

Annabelle343

On October 3rd that creepy doll from The Conjuring will leave her very own terrifying mark in theaters, and today we’ve been lucky enough to get a teaser trailer that explains just how Annabelle became possessed. It’s cool to see the backstory of the iconic doll and I like how they teased the film in the same fashion that The Conjuring did, almost like a short film. I was definitely on the fence with Annabelle once it was announced because it just came off like a rushed idea in order to cash in on the huge success of James Wan’s The Conjuring. Based on this teaser, however, it looks like they could have quite the hit on their hands. Time will tell! Continue Reading…

horns-daniel-radcliffe1

A couple of days ago we finally got our first glimpse at the teaser for Alexandre Aja’s new horror film Horns, which stars Daniel Radcliffe. Now, on the heels of the first teaser trailer is a really cool new poster that asks us to: Embrace your demons. I really dig the comic-book look of the poster and it’s miles better than what we originally saw. Continue Reading…

scanners-341

David Cronenberg’s classic sci-fi film Scanners is mostly known for its iconic exploding head scene. That particular scene is so popular amongst the world of cinema that people who haven’t even seen the film know exactly where this scene came from. It’s an epic moment in which a renegade with telepathic powers literally makes someone’s head explode. It’s a magical moment in movie history and one of the many reasons why Cronenberg’s filmography has some of the best films the horror genre has to offer. Continue Reading…

All I can say about this right now is that it’s about damn time! Seriously, it’s been way too long for Alexandre Aja’s Horns to get a release date, much less a teaser trailer. And today we’ve got both! Apparently, Horns has been pegged for a Halloween release in the UK, and although they haven’t announced a U.S. release date just yet, I’d imagine it will be around the same time if not the same day. So that’s pretty awesome! Continue Reading…

housebound

Gerard Johnstone’s festival favorite Housebound is about to leave its mark at the 18th annual Fantasia International Film Festival in just a few days, so to celebrate the occasion XLrator Media has finally released a trailer for their indie horror-comedy gem and it looks fantastic. The haunted house sub genre is more popular than ever right now thanks to movies like Paranormal Activity and The Conjuring, and while Housebound is cut from the same cloth as those films, it takes a much lighter and fun approach the whole possessed house thing. If the trailer is any indicator, I’d say that Housebound is going to have laughs and scares in equal measure. Should be a lot of fun! Continue Reading…

Dawn of The Planet of The Apes (DOTPOTA) Wallpaper

Matt Reeves was given the nod to bring Caesar and his army of apes back to the big screen in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, and man did he leave one hell of a fingerprint on the franchise once all was said and done. For my money this is one of the best films in the franchise since we saw the beach-covered remains of the Statue of Liberty in 1968. The sequel to Rise of the Planet of the Apes picks up a decade after the devastating Simian Flu wiped out most of the human race. The human survivors and the growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar try to find peace, but are ultimately brought to the brink of a war. Continue Reading…

SuburbanGothic

Excision director, Richard Bates Jr., returns with his sophomore effort in the horror-comedy Suburban Gothic, starring Matthew Gray Gubler and Kat Dennings. After his horror debut in Excision, you just knew that Richard Bates Jr. was going to leave quite the fingerprint in the world of horror. And while it’s still too early to tell how much of an impact his films are going to have on the genre—this being only his second film and all—there’s no denying that he has an absorbing vision that mixes up plenty of the weird with a nasty dose of horror. Continue Reading…

Kate-Beckinsale-082

Disturbia director D.J. Caruso returns to the horror genre with a haunted house film that was inspired by true events in The Disappointments Room, a psychological thriller that they are saying is in the same vein as The Shining. Although that could mean just about anything, throwing around a title like The Shining is certainly some bold words, wouldn’t you say? While I’m not a big fan of D.J. Caruso, and the title of this film could certainly use some help, there is one reason to get excited about the film. Continue Reading…

red-state2

Kevin Smith wants to tell us a story, one of a terrible transformation at the very hands of a madman who has an unusually deep affection for walruses. Yes, that’s actually what the movie is about and it’s entitled Tusk; there’s even a poster to prove it! I’ve been keeping a close eye on the development of Tusk since it was announced some time ago, but I’ve held off on writing anything about it until I could actually show you guys something cool. Well, that something cool is finally here and it’s in the form of a poster designed by Ignition, who did a brilliant job capturing the essence of the film with such a simple image. Great stuff. Continue Reading…

The Conjuring Annabelle doll on rocking chair

Anyone who has seen James Wan’s The Conjuring will no doubt remember the few scenes in which the terrifying Annabelle doll graced the screen. And although she played a very small part in the film, that didn’t stop Warner Bros. and New Line from creating a spinoff that would take the creepy doll and make her the centerpiece of her very own horror feature. Annabelle, from director John R. Leonett—who was The Conjuring‘s director of photography—has been slated with an October 3rd, 2014 release date, reports Deadline. That’s pretty damn soon. Continue Reading…

Deliverusfromevil

Scott Derrickson’s Deliver Us from Evil blends a cop drama with that of a tale of possession and how demons will latch onto the souls of the innocent and terrorize everyone around them. It makes for a haunting atmosphere as the dirty work of the NYPD is scary enough as it is, but combining that life with the demonic is a fantastic canvas for Derrickson to paint his skin-crawling tale. The film follows NY police officer Ralph Sarchie who joins forces with a priest, schooled in the rituals of exorcism, to rid the city of demonic possession. The heart of the film beats around those that are possessed and eventually leads to the film’s big exorcism scene, but does Derrickson himself deliver the goods? Unfortunately, not quite. Continue Reading…

film-under-the-skin-1

You know a movie leaves quite the impression when you can barely think of the words to describe it, and Jonathan Glazer’s brooding sci-fi slow burn, Under the Skin, did exactly that by the time the credits begin to tick across the screen. While the film is gorgeously shot and successfully weaves an unsettling atmosphere throughout its narrative, Under the Skin also features a whole lot of nothing. The film centers on an alien in human form preying upon the population of Scotland. It’s a simple plot for a simple movie and despite the fact that it’s truly an unsettling experience, I was just too bored to care. Continue Reading…

RemakeHolly

In news that is more eye-rollingly terrible than anything else, another The Omen remake is on the way thanks to Platinum Dunes, the guys behind such classic remakes as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Amityville Horror, The Hitcher, Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street. So this one is definitely going to be awesome, right? This news and remake feel so utterly pointless to me that I almost skipped it entirely, but I instead decided to share my misery with you folks. You’re welcome. Continue Reading…

audition343

No way this will flop, you guys.

Did they learn nothing from the disaster that was Spike Lee’s Oldboy? Remaking a psychological classic like Audition is bad enough in its own right, but remaking a Takashi Miike film is worse. Terminator and Rambo producer Mario Kassar is the one piecing this all together which will have Richard Gray (The Lookalike) at the helm. They’re trying their best to avoid calling it a remake by saying it’s a new adaptation of the infamous 1997 novel by Japanese author Ryu Murakami, but let’s face it, this is totally going to be a remake of Miike’s film, who delivered an amazing adaptation of the novel back in 1999. Continue Reading…

life-still

Aubrey Plaza goes full zombie in Jeff Baena’s horror comedy Life After Beth, and today we’ve got every decomposing second of its trailer to take look at. While zombie comedies are nothing new, Life After Beth offers a pretty fun twist on the sub genre as Beth—played by Plaza—comes crawling out of her grave one day and reunites with her boyfriend (Dane DeHaan). At first everything seems to be totally normal, that is, until she begins to rot and start eating people. Continue Reading…
