SINSTER

While original Sinister director Scott Derrickson and his co-writer C. Robert Cargill have been hard at work on a script for a sequel to the massively successful 2012 film, it was unsure as to whether or not Derrickson himself would take ahold of the directing duties. That all changed today, however, as Blumhouse took to twitter to announced that Citadel director Ciaran Foy will be the man behind the sequel. While I’m sure that many fans were hoping to see Derrickson back behind the camera for Sinister 2, take solace in knowing that he still very much has a heavy hand in the sequel with writing duties.

5-the-green-inferno

The Green Inferno marks the long awaited return of director Eli Roth who hasn’t stepped behind the camera of a feature film since 2007′s Hostel: Part II, and today a teaser trailer has finally dropped for the cannibalistic tale and it’s absolutely haunting. In it we’re teased with a few close-up shots of a terrified girl tied down by a native tribe who only have one thing on the menu—man-sushi. The teaser captures the very gruesome nature of Roth’s latest foray into the genre without actually spilling any of the red stuff. It plays on the fears of our imagination because we all know what road this is heading down, the teaser just provides the direction. Continue Reading…

Friday The 13th

By now it’s no secret that Paramount will be rebooting the iconic Friday the 13th franchise once again, and today things have started to heat up over at Camp Crystal Lake because it looks like the studio is eying V/H/S director David Bruckner to helm the latest installment in the franchise. Bruckner is the terrifying mind behind the “Amateur Night” segment in the horror anthology hit V/H/S, so he’s certainly a solid option to carry the machete into new territory. Continue Reading…

Indigenous

Alastair Orr’s creature-featured Indigenous has just debuted its trailer as it sets up for its premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival this weekend. The trailer is all kinds of awesome as it features a wicked creature design—a blood-sucking Chupacabra—that makes happy meals out of a bunch of friends who go wandering off into the jungle. I’m a sucker for a practical effects driven creature-feature with a monster design that’s actually scary; surprisingly, that’s something the horror genre doesn’t see that often anymore. The trailer goes straight for the jugular and unleashes a terrifying glimpse at the film’s creature—and it looks like something that crawled straight out of the darkest corners of a nightmare. Continue Reading…

It sees what it wants you to see. No other sentence hits the very core of Mike Flanagan’s Oculus quite like that one. Flanagan reminds us just how powerful a director’s vision is as he does exactly that—shows us only what he want’s us to see—as he spins a wicked tale that haunts and tricks in equal measure. Smartly written and extremely well executed, Oculus is a powerful horror film that haunts, shocks and delivers a crazy narrative that twists and turns until its final beat. Continue Reading…

I honestly can’t think of a better way to wrap the week up than with this carnage-fueled teaser trailer for Brian O’Malley’s Let Us Prey. It’s literally 45 seconds of pure insanity that only takes a breathe to throw more of the red stuff on the walls. Basically, it’s my kind of teaser! You won’t find a story to be told in this quick trailer because instead of bothering us with all those boring words and stuff, it delivers a pure gut-wrenching dose of horror that promises to be a night filled with insanity. Continue Reading…

Today we have a special treat for the Short Round as it features the short film debut of the talented Larry Alan who’s certainly no stranger to these parts as he was featured right here on Rhino’s Horror with a gallery of gorgeously disturbing photographs that captured terror in a single shot. But now Alan has taken his talents into the world of film with his short It was a Midsummer’s Afternoon in which a beautiful day in the woods takes a frightening turn. Continue Reading…

the-drownsman-2

The world of horror is just now starting to catch wind of a little supernatural suspense film by the name of The Drownsman from writer/director Chad Archibald who aims to deliver a new kind of villain that echoes the legendary monsters from films like Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween and Hellraiser. That’s certainly a tall order but there’s no denying how badly the genre could use a good ‘ol fashion horror icon right now. And who knows, maybe The Drownsman could be just that. Continue Reading…

I’m still not entirely sure what to make of Alex Van Warmerdam’s Borgman just yet, but I do know that it’s certainly the strangest looking horror film on the horizon. With the home invasion genre starting to wear thin lately, it’s nice to see a film like Borgman come along and turn it on its head. If you thought the poster was creepy, wait until you see what the trailer has in store. Continue Reading…
