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.
The first Hollywood Horrorfest is coming to the New Beverly Cinema (7165 Beverly Blvd.) in Los Angeles March 28-29, 2014.
Miles Flanagan is the acting director of the fest and previously spearheaded the Los Angeles Animation Festival and Boobs & Blood.
Lance Reddick is boarding the cast of American Horror Story: Coven, reports EW. The actor, formerly seen on Fringe, will appear on the series when it returns from a small winter break in January and, according to the outlet, he’ll play a major part in the final four episode.
Why? Apparently, he’s playing a “voodoo Satan”-like figure named Papa Legba. With voodoo playing a part, that means Marie Laveau (Angela Bassett) will somehow play a part in Legba’s introduction.
On this installment of The Bloodcast, Clarke Wolfe and I kick off our “director’s series” by looking at the body of work Tim Burton has provided us. From Pee Wee’s Big Adventure to the Frankenweenie feature film, they dissect them one-by-one. But before that… how did Clarke do in The Haunting experiment? And, listener questions time!
Richard Stanley’s Hardware was one of the first posters I ever had hanging on my bedroom wall growing up. The film has always had a special little place in my heart even if I know, today, it’s not a perfect movie.
Simon Boswell, composer of the film’s soundtrack, has informed us that he is releasing the score on vinyl Friday, December 13th and it’s up for pre-order here.
Let the Right One In has really connected with a generation of genre fans. From book to Swedish film adaptation to American remake, there’s something about this dark tale that resonates and I hear about it when I talk to horror fans. Now the story has become a stage play, which I had no clue about.
It is currently enjoying a run at the Royal Court Theatre in London and we have a promo that’s being used to push the show.
Blood is beginning to flow on the latest film from the directors of this year’s offering, Resolution. In Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead’s Spring, Evil Dead star Lou Taylor Pucci plays a man who relocates from Southern California to Italy. While there, he meets a young woman – played by Nadia Hilker – with a dark secret.
Based on the new image, featuring a blood-stained bathroom, that dark secret is beginning to present itself on the film’s set.
