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.
