Whenever a movie sits on the shelf for more than a couple years before being released, it’s hard not to wonder if the reason is because it turned out poorly. But when you look through the history books, or run a quick Google search, you’ll realize that many exceptional horror movies have languished in pre-release hell over the years. Films like You’re Next, The Cabin in the Woods, and Trick ‘r Treat took their sweet time entering our lives, and the same can certainly be said about Flight 7500 (formerly 7500).
But was this one worth the wait?
Written by Craig Rosenberg and directed by Takashi Shimizu (The Grudge), and originally set for release way back in 2012, Flight 7500 centers on the passengers of a doomed flight from Los Angeles to Tokyo. »

Japanese director Takashi Shimizu (The Grudge) returns to horror with Flight 7500. This film, formerly titled Flight 75, takes place on a haunted airliner. Here, an eclectic cast of characters do their best to survive the flight and touch down on Earth, once again. Completed in 2012, the film stars Ryan Kwanten ("True Blood"), Jerry Ferrara ("Entourage") and Scout Taylor-Compton. The film's release details are available here. For more on the story, Flight 7500 starts with a ten hour trip. Flying out of Los Angeles, this trip is destined for Tokyo. But, there is a short pit stop in hell, at 30,000 feet as a supernatural force attacks the passengers. This title had a theatrical release in 2014? That release was missed by this horror fan. But, Flight 7500 will see a second release on DVD, in April. Lionsgate Home Entertainment will distribute this title. And, a trailer for the film is hosted below. »

This is one I’ve been waiting for, even before it went into production. While hanging out a couple of years ago, my good friend (and sometimes Icons contributor) Graham Denman told me a really cool idea he had for a film. I won’t get into the details of the film, but a good while later, Graham sold his story idea and Eric England came on board to rewrite it and helm the film, now called Get The Girl.
Today, an exclusive piece on the film ran over at the always awesome EW, complete with stills from the film, as well as some new info regarding the kidnapping gone wrong film.
From the EW piece:
The film concerns a wealthy young man who stages a fake kidnapping in order to be a hero and win the affection of a girl with whom he’s madly in love. When one »
