PS4 exclusive scare ‘em up, Until Dawn, will be released on Tuesday August 25th in the Us, with the European release following a few days later on the 28th. Little has been revealed regarding Supermassive Games’ PS4 exclusive lately, but PlayStation Blog has today dropped the release dates, as well as a few more juicy pieces of information.
Most exciting (for me, anyway) is the news that Peter Stormare has officially joined the cast for the game. You might remember Mr. Stormare from his roles in Jurassic Park: The Lost World (he was a bad guy), Fargo (he was a bad guy), Arrow (he was a bad guy), and The Big Lebowski (he was a nihilist, and they don’t care about anything). One of the great character actors of our time, Peter Stormare will surely be an interesting addition to the cast. And probably a bad guy. Featuring »

The partnership between genre favorites Scream Factory and IFC Midnight has definitely been a good one, with the team-up doing quite an excellent job putting out some pretty entertaining films, with everything from Jennifer Kent’s The Babadook to The Vicious Brothers’ Extraterrestrial all being must have releases for horror fans. Adding even more solid titles to their partnership roster, Sf & IFC have now announced the July 7th DVD/Bluray release date for both Paul Solet’s Dark Summer and Jabbar Raisani’s Very solid film Alien Outpost. It’s been a while since Solet’s last film (the extremely effective and original 2009 motherly tale, Grace), so Dark Summer hitting shelves is some excellent news, and Alien Outpost is yet another very well done take on both the found footage-like subgenre and alien invasion flicks.

Tied for years to the slasher/torture porn over-the-top gore fests, the horror genre lost any semblance of atmosphere. In recent months though we’ve seen it turn a bend for the better with several very clever and innovative projects hitting our shores; The Babadook, Starry Eyes and It Follows have all shown that less is always more. The latest movie to attempt this refreshing approach is Dark Summer which deals with in-vogue topics such as cyber stalking and the ramifications that it can have, and much like It Follows the power of teenage friendship.
As well as sharing a theme, horror connoisseurs will recognise the film’s protagonist Keir Gilchrist as the perpetually friend-zoned Paul in It Follows. As Daniel, Gilchrist creates a rather odd lead character that we aren’t quite sure »

Guests at the garden party in the upcoming creature feature, Stung, will have to replace their EpiPens with swords and flamethrowers if they want to survive the giants wasps from below that are featured in the film's first trailer. Also included in our latest video round-up is a boy next door with a creepy caretaker in John McNaughton's The Harvest, as well as Helen McCrory's tour of her character's eerily decorated mansion from the upcoming second season of Showtime's Penny Dreadful.
Stung: "Mrs. Perch, an elderly, wealthy lady from rural America, is throwing a fancy garden party at her remote country villa. Same procedure as every year - except this time her illegally imported plant fertilizer seeps into the ground. Subsequently, a local species of killer wasps that usually lay their eggs into other insects mutates into 7 ft tall predators. And the celebrating upper class company provides »

After the immense success of Madagascar (2005) it was inevitable that sequels would follow, and that they did in the form of Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa (2008) and Madagascar 3: Europe’S Most Wanted (2012), with a fourth installment planned for 2018. However, it wasn’t just the main characters/animals to win over the hearts of children and adults alike; four penguins by the names of Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private have shot to stardom, with their film Penguins Of Madagascar a hoot from beginning to end.

When I think of horror movies that use the house arrest conceit my mind wanders to films like 100 Feet, Housebound and even Disturbia - although that one is more of a thriller, it is still a good example. Dark Summer runs with the house arrest idea but this time adding in the idea of cyber stalking and using technology to power the ghost.
In Dark Summer, Daniel (Keir Gilchrist) is put under house arrest over the summer while his mother is away on business. Banned from social media for his crime of cyber stalking and hacking he soon finds his way around it only to find the girl he is obsessed with making contact with him. Telling him he will feel what she feels she commits suicide over video chat, him »

Everyone loves a good horror. The last few months have seen us treated to several gems; The Babadook, Starry Eyes and It Follows being at the top of the pile. Another hopeful is Dark Summer which stars Keir Gilchrist, from It Follows. His last outing was ridiculously creepy and here’s hoping that the new venture will be just as fruitful.
Also on board the cast is Grace Phipps, an actress making great strides in the horror realm with roles in The Vampire Diaries, Fright Night and upcoming Some Kind Of Hate. Dark Summer also features one of the great ‘that guys’, Peter Stomare.
The synopsis is thus:
In Dark Summer 17 year old Daniel Austin is given house-arrest for the summer for obsessive online stalking of his classmate and crush Mona Wilson. When his mother goes away on a long business trip, Daniel is left alone, with no phone, no internet, »

Longmire is an absolute anomaly in the world of television, which could have something to do with the fact that it was pulled from A&E, despite consistently high ratings for the network. It’s also the reason that it was something of a no-brainer that it would be picked up by someone else, and season four will air on Netflix later in the year.
Where the first two seasons pulled us slowly into the depths of Sheriff Walt Longmire’s life on the sprawling plains of Wyoming, the third season is like the hammer blow that follows the slow, methodical wind-up.
The second season ended by bringing a lot of forces to the fore in a move of plot construction that brilliantly weaves angles and conspiracies into a show that actually makes it difficult to look away. The third season spins this all together, but uses a mode of »

Ahead of its premiere at Tribeca Film Festival next month a poster and trailer have arrived online for monster movie Stung and we have them for you here…
For catering staffers Paul and Julia, Mrs. Perch’s fancy garden party at her remote country villa is nothing out of the ordinary. A mishap with toxic plant fertilizer leads to the most unwelcome of dinner guests: giant killer wasps. Director Benni Diez takes audiences on a thrilling, gory rollercoaster ride from campy to creepy, in this delightful and dreadful creature-feature.

★★☆☆☆ The inertia of millennial existential malaise has been de rigueur in the horror genre of late. David Robert Mitchell terrified with a wonderful twist on teenage anxieties in his It Follows (2014), exploring the dualities of sex and the slow dread of infernal lazy afternoons. Elsewhere Starry Eyes (2014), written and directed by Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer, sought to plumb similar depths from the ennui of La creatives. Dark Summer (2015) threatens to follow suit but Mike Le's script - directed by Paul Solet - begins as though it intends to stalk the disquieting hallways of 21st century technological preoccupation before careering into rote haunted house banality.
The presence of It Follows actor Keir Gilchrist (pictured right) does little to help avoid such unfavourable comparisons. In that film he played a lovesick teen willing to sacrifice himself for Maika Monroe. On this occasion his unrequited feelings have led to some cyber-stalking and landed his character, »

An Eli Roth produced horror film about a killer clown. As concepts go, Clown has itself a real doozy. When the clown he hired for his son’s birthday party flakes out on him, a desperate dad and real estate agent dresses up in the clown costume he finds in the basement of one of his properties. His clown act is a resounding success, but isn’t quite so funny the next day, when he can’t get the make-up, wig or nose off his face. Even worse, he appears to be transforming into a child-eating demonic clown. It’s up to his wife and a dodgy Peter Stormare to save the poor guy before its too late – both for »

Five years ago, a trailer made the rounds online purporting to be an Eli Roth-produced horror film called “Clown” about a father that inexplicably begins turning into a monstrous clown after dressing up for son’s birthday party. It turns out the viral video was, of course, a fake trailer cooked up by commercial directors Jon Watts and Christopher D. Ford. Now, half a decade later, the fake movie is very real and has its very own authentic trailer. The real trailer for the real “Clown” clocks in at two-and-a-half-minutes — roughly double the length of the original — and boasts some star power in the form of character actor Peter Stormare as that one old kook you see in horror movies that lays out the mythology of the film’s world. Ford and Watts wrote the film together, with Watts alone at the helm and Roth as the producer (and »
