Lionsgate has released a new trailer for the upcoming Hammer supernatural thriller, The Quiet Ones. Check it out in the player here, courtesy of iTunes Movie Trailers.
From the producer behind The Woman In Black and Let Me In comes an unnerving tale of dark forces and unspeakable secrets. An experiment on a young girl, Jane Harper, leads a Professor and his team of students to uncover powers more terrifying than they could ever have imagined. Inspired by true events, the film stars Jared Harris, Sam Claflin, and Olivia Cooke.
On the 65th The Bloodcast, hosts Ryan Turek and Clarke Wolfe welcome a very special guest: Mark Ellis from Schmoes Know.
Ryan, Clarke, and Mark dive right into the horror-comedy sub genre. What are some of their favorites? Which ones don’t work at all? Which horror-comedies will stand the test of time and which might be forgotten?
Join us for an in-depth conversation, lots of laughs, and a Patrick Wilson ghost cameo on this silly episode of The Bloodcast!

About the film, in case you’re new to this ’80s slasher: After a terrible boating accident killed her family, shy Angela Baker (Felissa Rose) went to live with her eccentric Aunt Martha and her cousin Ricky. This summer, Martha decides to send them both to Camp Arawak, a place to enjoy the great outdoors. Shortly after their arrival, a series of bizarre and violent “accidents” begin to claim the lives of various campers. Has a dark secret returned from the camp’s past…or will an unspeakable horror end the Summer season for all?

Just prior to taking in a SXSW screening of the original Godzilla with a special clip from this year’s 2014 reboot, Shock reconnected with director Gareth Edwards to talk a bit more about his highly-anticipated film.
This isn’t the first time we’ve chatted all things Godzilla with the director of Monsters. It’s more like our fourth or fifth conversation, including the chats we had last year on set (look for that report next week) and the one that took place at Comic-Con. Each time we run into Edwards, we get him to open up more and more about this project which has maintained a fair amount of secrecy…until the trailers hit and the magazine covers were revealed and the toys started to get leaked.
These debuts have helped paved the way for our most recent interview in which I talk with Edwards at SXSW about Godzilla’s design and how nature, as well as a Jim Henson production, inspired the monster’s new look. We also turn to topics like what “the Internet” sees in the trailer, the importance of the 1954 film and Closer Encounters of the Third Kind’s impact on Edward’s movie.
Godzilla past and present brought carnage to SXSW in Austin, Texas during Shock Till You Drop’s final night at the event.
Following a screening of the original 1954 film, which played to a packed audience at the Ritz, Gareth Edwards – director of May 16th gigantic Godzilla redo from Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. – took to the stage to re-introduce us to not just the trailer we’re all familiar with at this point, but a new clip!
When I last sat down with Tobe Hooper, it was to reflect on The Funhouse, a personal favorite of mine which has received the presentation it deserves via a special edition Blu-ray from Scream Factory. You can read that two-part retrospective here.
It has been some time since that encounter, however, today we reunited at SXSW in Austin, Texas (apropos) to discuss The Texas Chainsaw Massacre’s 40th anniversary release. The film has been cleaned up with a new 4k transfer and 7.1 surround mix and is revving up for a release from Dark Sky Films/MPI sometime this summer.
We touched a bit on the new print and then deviated into other subjects such as other films of his that he thinks deserve some love, Lifeforce and if there’s still life in the Chainsaw legacy.
Having already been involved with two successful horror franchise with Saw and Insidious writer/actor Leigh Whannell was at this year's SXSW Film Festival with his latest movie, The Mule, a Melbourne, Australia-based true crime story he co-wrote and stars in with another local, director Angus Sampson. ComingSoon.net had a chance to sit down with the…
