This is a little bit of “repeat news, but what the hell…why not offer another update on Insidious Chapter 3.
Back in March, we spoke with Leigh Whannell, writer and co-star of the Insidious series, who said this about the upcoming third film now in development at Blumhouse Productions.
The trailer hit last month for the Chiller Films original Animal, but here it is again along with the official one-sheet and some release date news.
Chiller will air the film – produced by Drew Barrymore’s production outfit – on June 17th. As for that poster, I’m not sure what I’m looking at, but that’s a lot of teeth. Gives me a Feast sort of menace.
When plans for a weekend vacation hit a dead end, a group of close-knit friends find themselves stranded in unfamiliar territory, pursued by a menacing, blood thirsty predator. Holed up in an isolated cabin, tensions mount as long-buried secrets are revealed. As the body count rises, the group must put their differences aside and fight for survival.
Christopher Denham’s Preservation has its Tribeca premiere this weekend and we’ve got a sneak peek via a clip for you here. The film is looking for distribution, so this is indeed an “early look.”
Wrenn Schmidt, Aaron Staton, Pablo Schreiber, Jennifer Dubin and Cora Olson star for Denham who also directed 2008′s Home Movie.
It’s not a “found footage” film, but it is an original story and a supernatural thriller. It’s called Altergeist, a film we first told you about during our American Film Market coverage last year, and today we’ve received the title treatment and a handful of images, courtesy of the official site. Writer-director Tedi Serafian’s flick stars True Blood’s Kristina Anapau, Freddy vs. Jason’s Brendan Fletcher and Sarah Oh. Here’s a bit more about the film and the gallery. No word on a release date yet, but we’re told it will be locked in for sometime this year.
Formerly known as How to Catch a Monster, Ryan Gosling’s directorial feature debut has received a title change. The film is now being called Lost River, the name of the town the movie is set in and, today, the first images have hit the web in anticipation of its Cannes premiere.
Looking at them, I was struck with a reaction that had me saying, “Of course.” They’re intriguing and weird and hinting at an unusual darkness. And that doesn’t suprise me a bit because Gosling has that in him. Look no further than his band Dead Man’s Bones for that.
Another Godzilla spot has arrived and I’m noticing that they’re taking all sorts of approaches to marketing this film. There’s the “nothing can stop it” approach in which the film is depicted as a natural disaster tale. There’s the “awe and wonder” approach filled with big explosions and action. And here we have the intense character drama angle…capped with one of the best looks at Godzilla yet.
Take a look here, because it’s pretty damn cool.
Shock Till You Drop’s original series Choice Cuts returns and goes inside Scream Factory.
If you’re a regular Shock reader, they really need no introduction, but they’re one of the leading companies today seeking out older horror films and are restoring and releasing them as collector’s editions. While Scream Factory handles its fair share of new title acquisitions, their bread and butter is older titles and they’ve given us some fantastic ones: Day of the Dead, The Funhouse, Lifeforce, The Burning and many, many more.
This upcoming summer and fall is huge for Scream Factory, so I sat down with Cliff MacMillan and Jeff Nelson to preview what’s to come and to give you a better insight as to how the company works.
It’s been a while since I’ve written about any collectibles or figures that have impressed me. Leave it to NECA to break my silence. At a screening of A Nightmare on Elm Street in New York City last night, the company unveiled their 30th Anniversary “ultimate Freddy” figure that is getting a release this year.
Under the lighting conditions of the first pic you see here…it looks pretty damn bad-ass. And, as you can see, he’s going to be coming with some alternate heads and other goodies.
