Crave starts off as a male empowerment fantasy and descends into its own madness. The film is as much about loneliness as it is about one’s destructive fantasies and what happens when those two worlds meet. These are not characters soon forgotten. Director and screenwriter Charles de Lauzirika definitely had a lot on his mind with this film and luckily, Shock was able to get him to share a little with us…
Television seems to be where it is at for all things witch-related. American Horror Story: Coven, Witches of East End, the upcoming Salem… Witches cannot be stopped.

Ouija is a film that has been in development for a bit now. It started out as a big Jumanji-esque adventure based on the Hasbro board game, but after the budget became a bit too much for the studio, it was reworked into something smaller.
Written and directed by Juliet Snowden and Stiles White (The Possession), the film, per Deadline, now concerns “a group of teens playing with a Ouija board, making contact with an evil spirit, and desperately trying to close the door they’ve opened before meeting their own fate.”
We’re getting to that point on American Horror Story: Coven where things are beginning to come together. Things are certainly escalating, that’s for sure.

What is life like for Michael C. Hall post-Dexter? Well, the actor ventured off to work with director Jim Mickle on Cold in July, a film that is now going to make its premiere at Sundance. We have your first look via a publicity photo that was released last night.
Based on a story by Joe R. Lansdale, and adapted by Mickle and Nick Damici, the film concerns a Texas man whose life unravels into a dark underworld of corruption and violence after he kills a home intruder. Hall co-stars with Don Johnson, Sam Shepard, Vinessa Shaw, Nick Damici and Wyatt Russell.
Now that my vinyl obsession is in full-swing, I’m especially happy to announce that we’ve landed an exclusive first-look at the latest offering from Waxwork Records, the company out of New Orleans responsible for this year’s Re-Animator and Day of the Dead vinyls. The team there has been teasing a release of Christopher Komeda’s score of the 1968 classic, Rosemary’s Baby, and we have the details and package art, by Jay Shaw, to share with you.
During the American Film Market last month, Shock Till You Drop was the very first to offer a first glimpse of Aubrey Plaza and the cast from the zombie comedy Life After Beth. Then we were given strict orders to have that photo removed. Fun times. Today brings news, however, that the film is going to debut at Sundance and a series of images have been released, including a look at Plaza as one of the undead.
As previously reported, Jeff Baena is directing the film which also stars John C. Reilly, Dane DeHaan, Anna Hendrick and Molly Shannon.
Ira Levin, writer of “Rosemary’s Baby” and “The Stepford Wives,” also penned the ’70s Broadway thriller Veronica’s Room and now that play is heading to the big screen thanks to Bob and Harvey Weinstein.
They’ll produce, finance and distribute the feature adaptation under the TWC-Dimension label.
The dark tale of Veronica’s Room explores the thin line between fantasy and reality. Students Susan and Larry find themselves enticed to an old New England mansion by its caretakers to meet the sole surviving member of the family.
