First Poster for Jessabelle

12 hours ago | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Jessabelle just wants to heal, but she’ll get hell for her efforts. Wheelchair-bound as she recuperates from a car accident that killed her boyfriend, Jessabelle returns home to be near her father, but ends up getting too close to a malevolent spirit. The first poster for Jessabelle shows a throat-tightening connection between the film’s heroine and her haunter.

From Blumhouse Productions and Lionsgate, Jessabelle hits theaters and VOD platforms on November 7th. We have a look at the first official poster below (thanks to Yahoo! Movies for the image!):

“From the mastermind producer of Paranormal Activity and Insidious comes the ghostly tale of Jessabelle. Returning to her childhood home in Louisiana to recuperate from a horrific car accident, Jessabelle (Sarah Snook of Sleeping Beauty) comes face to face with a long-tormented spirit that has been seeking her return — and has no intention of letting her escape.”

19 August 2014 3:29 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Finally an official one-sheet is here for Jessabelle, the new film from Saw VI and Saw 3D director Kevin Greutert. Given this director's twisted past, we have to say this one is pretty damned fitting. Check it out!

Originally set for release in January of this year, the paranormal flick was recently pushed back to August and just today has been pushed back again. It's now set to hit both theaters and VOD outlets on November 7th so mark your calendars!

The flick stars Sarah Snook, Mark Webber, David Andrews, Joelle Carter, Ana de la Reguera, Larisa Oleynik, Chris Ellis, Fran Bennett, and Amber Stevens.

The film is being brought to us by the folks behind Paranormal Activity, Insidious, Sinister, and Dark Skies - Jason Blum, Paul Young, and Peter Principato, who are producing for Blumhouse Productions and Principato-Young Entertainment.

Fantasia 2014: ‘Faults’ works on your confidence

25 July 2014 10:15 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Faults

Written and directed by Riley Stearns

USA, 2014

The essence of a confidence game is as follows: the con artist describes a terrific bargain in which the mark is offered a chance in which to invest. Due to the mark’s own greed, he hands over whatever personal assets he must to the confidence man, expecting a greater return that he never receives. Though, as Joe Mantegna’s hustler points in House of Games, it is called a confidence game because they are giving their confidence to you. Not the other way around. This is why, throughout history, people have been known to lose articles of clothing and even their houses.

Riley Stearns’s Faults, an understated dramatic-comedy, raises the stakes and the number of games being played at once. Everything is a con and a fickle negotiation. As nebbish, squirrelly Dr. Ansel Roth (Leland Orser) gives hotel room lectures »

First Trailer for 'Jessabelle', a New Horror Arriving in November

17 July 2014 5:45 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I must say, after October last year went pretty much horror free (Insidious: Chapter 2 came out mid-September), 2014 has its fair share of horror including The Conjuring prequel Annabelle, board game horror Ouija, Harry Potter horror Horns, CG Dracula horror in Dracula Untold and now Kevin Greutert's (Saw 3D, Saw VI) Jessabelle. Just today Lionsgate moved Jessabelle from a late August release to November 7. The film follows the title character (Sarah Snook), a young woman returning to her childhood home in Louisiana to recuperate from a horrific car accident when she comes face to face with a long-tormented spirit that has been seeking her return -- and has no intention of letting her escape. Mark Webber, David Andrews, Joelle Carter, Ana de la Reguera, Larisa Oleynik, Chris Ellis, Fran Bennett and Amber Stevens co-star.
