Crowdfund This: Itsy Bitsy Mixes Practical FX and Charatcter Actors in a Return to 80s Genre

6 October 2017 4:16 PM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

From the look of the trailer, Itsy Bitsy is a return to solid character acting (Denise Crosby! Bruce Davison!) and practical creature special effects with its animatronic spiders. Director Micah Gallo has put together a pretty slick-looking genre film outside of the Hollywood system, and he's close to finishing his film Itsy Bitsy, but he needs help. He's almost there --- just shy of $5,000 to reach his goal in the next few days. Of course, you can score the usual signed blu-rays and DVDs, but you if you have a bit more cash to spare, you can also get props, credits, a sweet poster signed by genre film illustrator Matthew Joseph Peak (A Nightmare on Elm Street), and tickets to the film's Los Angeles premiere and after...

Interview: Filmmaker Micah Gallo on the Characters & Kickstarter Campaign for the Spider-Centric Thriller Itsy Bitsy

26 September 2017 3:10 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

If you have arachnophobia, you might need to take a deep pull from an inhaler after watching the trailer for Itsy Bitsy, an upcoming horror film in which a single mother and her children are stalked by a spider that's large enough to haunt your dreams for life, but still compact enough to fit in your bathtub or under your bed... As impressive as the trailer for Itsy Bitsy is, the film still needs help from horror fans to make it across the cinematic finish line in post-production, and director Micah Gallo has launched a Kickstarter campaign to help bring his creature feature to the big screen.

I recently had the pleasure of speaking with Gallo about his new character-centric thriller, and he discussed teaming up with Daily Dead contributor Jason Alvino and Bryan Dick to write the screenplay, filming the movie in sections, depicting the spider through painstaking practical effects, »

Film Review: ‘Last Rampage: The Escape of Gary Tison’

22 September 2017 12:19 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There’s something incontestably impressive about the no-frills efficiency of “Last Rampage: The Escape of Gary Tison,” a sturdily constructed and scrupulously well-cast slice of meat-and-potatoes filmmaking that calls to mind above-average made-for-cable movies of the 1990s. Based on the 1988 book of the same name by James W. Clarke, this engrossing true-crime drama is potently propelled by Robert Patrick’s full-tilt performance as Gary Tison, a purposefully ingratiating sociopath who reveals his true monstrousness to his naïve sons only after they help him escape from Arizona State Prison, and enhanced by solid contributions from supporting players Bruce Davison, Heather Graham and, briefly, the late John Heard. Director Dwight Little (“Free Willy,” “Rapid Fire”), another seasoned pro, seals the deal by keeping the narrative brisk and suspenseful, even while he covers familiar territory.

After starting out with a miscalculated flashforward that gives the game away a tad too early, Little smoothly doubles back to July 30, 1978, to show moody »

Their overall goal is to raise $40,000 from fan support via the Kickstarter campaign https://www. »

Toronto: Director Laura Mora Discusses Debut Feature ‘Killing Jesus’

10 September 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Colombia’s “Killing Jesus,” a participant in 2015’s Berlinale International Co-production Market, will world premiere Saturday at the Toronto Film Festival. The Colombia-Argentina co-production was co-written by Laura Mora, (“Escobar, El Patron del Mal”) and prominent Colombian screenwriter Alonso Torres (“Dog Eat Dog”).

Colombia’s 64-a Films and Argentina’s Az Films co-produced the semi-autobiographical revenge-drama. Latido Films, one of Spain’s powerhouse sales agents, has acquired international sales rights. Cine Colombia will release in Colombia on March 8.

Loosely based on actual events in the director’s own life, the film turns on the assassination of a university professor as witnessed by his daughter Lita, who catches a quick glimpse of the drive-by assassin speeding away on the back of a motorbike. Frustrated with the lack of attention and progress made by the local police, Lita and her family have all but give up on ever finding out what happened until one night out at a club »

Lin Shaye Returns in Trailer for Horror Sequel 'Insidious: The Last Key'

5 September 2017 12:00 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"This one is different, though. The haunted house is my family's house." Universal has unveiled an official trailer for the horror sequel Insidious: The Last Key, also known as just Insidious 4, since this is the latest in this on-going horror franchise. Perhaps the final sequel considering it's called The Last Key? Lin Shaye returns as Dr. Elise Rainier, the brilliant parapsychologist who ends up being terrorized in her own home by the demons that have been haunting houses ever since Insidious in 2010. Shaye is joined in the cast by Angus Sampson, Leigh Whannell, Josh Stewart, Caitlin Gerard, Kirk Acevedo, Javier Botet, Bruce Davison, Spencer Locke, Tessa Ferrer, Ava Kolker and Marcus Henderson. I was into the first two Insidious films, but totally lost interest after it became a "franchise". Have a look if you want.

Paranormal investigator probes her own inner demons in Insidious: The Last Key trailer.

“Be careful, you’re about to touch it,” a paranormal investigator is warned in the first trailer for Insidious: The Last Key, the fourth film in the Insidious horror franchise. The mystic also has to touch on her own past as she ventures deep into the further to end the evil. She doesn’t have memories, she has scars.

Insidious co-creator Leigh Whannell, who directed Insidious: Chapter Three and wrote the screenplays for the previous three movies in the franchise, wrote the script this time, too. Insidious: The Last Key is directed by Adam Robitel (The Taking of Deborah Logan), who is new to the series. The film is produced by Saw and The Conjuring director James Wan.

First Trailers For Insidious: The Last Key Unlock A Nerve-Shredding Sequel

5 September 2017 7:53 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Horror comes home in the creepy first trailers for Insidious: The Last Key.

Featuring a somber narration from Lin Shaye’s series mainstay, Dr. Elise Rainier, today’s first-look promo dials the terror up to 11 when a curious young woman comes face-to-face with a supernatural entity. So far, so familiar.

But where The Last Key sets itself apart is in its personnel behind the scenes. Case in point: Although Insidious co-creator Leigh Whannell penned the screenplay, Blumhouse and Universal Pictures tapped relative newcomer Adam Robitel (The Taking of Deborah Logan) to direct, and the result is a horror sequel that is decidedly different from its next of kin. Visually, at least.

It’s a wise move for a franchise that was beginning to falter at the box office – Insidious 2 scored a commendable $162 million worldwide, while Chapter 3 struggled to muster anything more than $112m – so here’s hoping Chapter »

Insidious 4 Trailer Unlocks New Terror with The Last Key

5 September 2017 7:26 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

That was quick. Just yesterday we heard that the first teaser trailer for Insidious: Chapter 4 was coming soon. Now, it is here in the early morning hours to terrorize those just trying to shake themselves awake with a first cup of coffee. Don't worry, honey, that screaming you hear coming from the kitchen is just Dad trying to catch up on his social media before work. And boy, when you see the opening moments of this sneak peek, you will definitely want to run and hide. It's truly disturbing in only the way an Insidious movie knows how to be.

In yesterday's report, it was noted that this trailer would be just 60 seconds long. That's not actually the case. This is a full-length trailer, and it's pretty scary. What yesterday's report did get right is the title. Insidious: Chapter 4 is definitely called The Last Key, hinting that this »

Wait, there’s another one of these? Not that we were following the “Insidious” franchise all that closely to begin with, but I had no idea the series has already managed to get to four films. Huh. I’m not gonna pretend I have any idea what’s going on in the storyline, so I’ll throw down the information you need to know, and you can take it from there.

Insidious: Chapter 4 Conjures Up Official Title; First Trailer Imminent

4 September 2017 12:03 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The British Board of Film Classification has unearthed a listing for Insidious: Chapter 4, revealing the sequel’s subtitle to be The Last Key. But what could it mean?

Thankfully, it won’t be too much longer before we have some footage to mull over; Trailer Track is reporting that The Last Key‘s inaugural teaser, which will likely screen before It this coming weekend, is officially in the can. Clocking in at only 61 seconds in length, this is very much a first-look promo for Insidious: Chapter 4, which is just as well considering modern-day horror films have a tendency to showcase too much, too soon via extensive marketing campaigns.

Behind the lens for this one is Adam Robitel (The Taking of Deborah Logan), who has been faced with the somewhat tricky challenge of delivering a competent successor to Chapter 3, after it conjured up a box office tally in excess »

Trailer for Prison Break Drama 'Last Rampage' Featuring Robert Patrick

14 August 2017 9:30 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"You can have anything you want in this world, as long as you know how to steal it." Epic Releasing has debuted a trailer for an action thriller titled Last Rampage, about the true story of a notorious prison break in Arizona in 1978. The film stars Robert Patrick as Gary Tison, a convicted murderer who escaped from prison with his cellmate, played by Chris Browning. While the sheriff, played by Bruce Davison, was hunting him down the two went on a murderous rampage. The film features a "chilling tour-de-force turn by Robert Patrick" in a story "about the dark side of family loyalty." The full cast includes Heather Graham, Molly C. Quinn, Jason James Richter, William Shockley, and the late John Heard. This looks very gritty and violent, perhaps it's an uncomfortable film to watch, but maybe there's something to it. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Dwight H. Little's Last Rampage, »
