We can’t speak for some of 2014′s early horror releases (yet), so we don’t know if the year begins with a bang, but we can tell you: Go see Big Bad Wolves when it opens January 17th.
A vigilante cop and a vengeful father capture and interrogate an accused serial killer. Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado’s brutal follow-up to Rabies examines a horror that most would not want to imagine: what would you do if someone hurt the one you loved most? A revenge thriller with teeth, Big Bad Wolves delivers on its raw tension with operatic drama.
Following yesterday’s domestic trailer for Godzilla, Toho has released a slightly different Japanese trailer and a TV spot as well that you can watch here.
An epic rebirth to Toho’s iconic Godzilla, this spectacular adventure pits the world’s most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence. Gareth Edwards directs the May 16, 2014 release, which stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, Sally Hawkins, David Strathairn and Bryan Cranston.
Paramount has unveiled three new television spots for Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones.
The January 3, 2014 release is written and directed by Christopher Landon and does not have an “official” plot synopsis to pass along.
But, we can tell you Richard Cabral, Carlos Pratts, Eddie J. Fernandez, Jorge Diaz, David Fernandez Jr., Kimberly Ables Jindra, Tonja Kahlens and Frank Salinas star in the spin-off of the Paranormal Activity series.
How far would you be willing to go to find a missing friend? What would you be willing to do if it meant getting answers? These are the decisions faced by writer Anne Roland (Katia Winter) when her friend James (Michael McMillian) disappears in Blair Erickson’s take on Lovecraft, The Banshee Chapter.
The film opens with a series of actual broadcast denouncing government experiments. At the center of the controversy is a drug that stimulates the Penal Gland. James Hirsch, a writer, gets a hold of the principal drug used in these experiments and takes it. What happens? He disappears.
Selecting the top 10 horror movies of 2013, in my opinion, came easy. In previous years, I struggled, limiting myself to eight selections or five or finding other ways to spin movies I just “liked” but didn’t really “love.” I had a hard timing commiting, you might say. This year, when I put pen to paper, the titles I considered the best just rolled out in no time (as did the “worst” of the year).
There was a lot to offer genre fans this year. While there were a handful of wide releases, horror exploded on the limited theatrical/VOD scene.
The “little” film that could, World War Z, faced an uphill battle getting the screen, spending millions, experiencing rewrites and multiple endings. But guess what? It made a ton of money and now Paramount wants a sequel.
We’ve known one was in the works and, today, Paramount Pictures has hired The Impossible and The Orphanage helmer Juan Antonio Bayona to direct the sequel, says The Hollywood Reporter.
He missed the Sundance deadline and is still in post-production, but, Kevin Smith has found a distributor for his upcoming horror film. The Wrap reports A24 and Demarest Films are releasing the film in Fall 2014. The former handled the distribution for this year’s Spring Breakers and The Bling Ring.
Smith wrapped shooting on Tusk recently. He plans to show off a trailer at the Sundance Film Festival next month.
Tusk finds Just Long playing a podcaster who interviews an old, reclusive seafarer (Michael Parks) who has sinister plans for his interviewer. Genesis Rodriguez and Haley Joel Osment.
Bigfoot is kind of becoming a “big deal” again, especially on the found footage scene. I won’t list off films that merge the two, but there are a few either actively in development or finished and on the way.
One that is presently in the works is No Man’s Ridge from Bad Moon director/The Hitcher and Near Dark scribe Eric Red. We’ve been alerted that Robert Kurtzman has come aboard to provide the FX for this found footage Bigfoot hunt experience which will – would you look at that – star our pal at Arrow in the Head, John Fallon.
A new adaptation of Ira Levin’s “Rosemary’s Baby” is on the way in the form of a 4-hour NBC mini-series. The project will be produced by Lionsgate Television, with Joshua Maurer, Alix Witlin and David Stern serving as executive producers.
Scott Abbott and James Wong will write the screenplay. Wong, as you might know, is one of the key creative players on American Horror Story. His credits also include Final Destination and episodes of The X-Files. I’m not justifying that’s a good reason they should redo Rosemary’s Baby, but his company is welcome on the project.
You’ve been following the production all year. You read our Comic-Con coverage where the first footage was shown. Now, set your eyes on the official Godzilla trailer. The 2014 film is a reimagining of the King of the Monsters directed by Gareth Edwards. The film pits the big buy against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence.
Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, Sally Hawkins, David Strathairn and Bryan Cranston star.
Tim Daley, Mario Van Peebles, Jonathan Bennett, Rosa Salazar and more are featured in the first images to come from Submerged, directed by Steven C. Miller. Shock Till You Drop has your first look via the gallery here.
Scripted by Scott Milam, the film concerns a limo ride home that takes a terrifying turn for a group of college kids when they are targeted for a kidnapping. They must do everything they can to survive after their limo is forced off the road and plunged into a canal.
Tom Six is completing work on The Human Centipede 3: Final Sequence. There’s no telling right now when we’ll see it, likely sometime in 2014, but we have a clean look at the some sales art that was being tossed around the American Film Market last month.
Dieter Laser and Laurence Harvey return for a “plot” that is reportedly going to contain a 500-person centipede. A prison plays a part in it all, too. Eric Roberts, as does Tommy “Tiny” Lister and Robert LaSardo and Bree Olson.
The home of Bates Motel, A&E, is debuting a new genre series next year called Those Who Kill. A teaser dropped this week featuring star Chlose Sevigny.
On directing duties – at least for the first episode – is Joe Carnahan of Smokin’ Aces and The Grey.
The series centers on Catherine Jensen (Chloe Sevigny), a freshly minted and incredibly smart police detective who tracks down serial killers. Jensen is also attempting to come to terms with her past by continuing to investigate her stepfather, who she suspects may be a serial killer, and her brother who went missing as a sixteen-year-old.
Shock got the drop on a new thriller called Silent Retreat from director Tricia Lee who is working from a script by Lee and Corey Brown. Chelsea Jenish, Sofia Banzhaf, Robert Nolan and Jen Pogue star. The film played to Toronto After Dark audiences a few months back. Check out the trailer here!
Janey is sent to a silent meditation retreat in the middle of the woods for rehabilitation, only to discover that the men who run it are brainwashing women to be quiet and submissive, and if she breaks the rules, she’ll discover what lurks beyond the trees.
Devil’s Due is getting a significantly different poster campaign overseas. Something a little less tame than the art you’re seeing to the right which is used for the domestic release.
UK reps have passed along a motion poster featuring this dark and twisted art and you can check it out right here.
Three official photos from Godzilla have hit the web that include a look at Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Bryan Cranston and…the back of Godzilla’s neck. They come courtesy of USA Today and you can see them here. The outlet released the pics in anticipation of the trailer’s debut tomorrow morning.
Based on the pic of Big G himself, it looks like those early leaks of his new “look” are fairly accurate.
