We Are Still Here is a haunted house thriller built on meticulous calculation. Writer/director Ted Geoghegan makes it obvious that unspeakable horrors are buried deep beneath this New England-set nightmare’s evil house, yet he doesn’t ruin any surprises early or often. Spirits linger, tension mounts, but nothing truly submerges into darkness until an explosive grand finale that sets a gruesome home restoration in motion with a brand new goretastic look. There are some pacing problems along the way, as we lust for a bloody taste of the action Geoghegan repeatedly teases, but those with more patient horror tenancies will be rewarded in the form of head-splitting insanity.
Geoghegan’s concept is a simple one, calling back to a sleepy town cultism that was more popular in horror films of yesteryear. A time when communities had dark secrets, and the preservation of such beliefs spelled trouble for any »

Don’t you just hate when undead beings stick around in your house? It is always a big bummer.
This is the case for the household in the indie horror, We Are Still Here. The film comes from writer/director Ted Geoghegan with a cast that includes: Barbara Crampton, Andrew Sensenig, Lisa Marie, and Larry Fessenden.
The film takes place in the cold, wintery fields of New England where a lonely old house wakes up every thirty years – and demands a sacrifice. You know, just New England things!
The trailer looks pretty generic, but the word out of SXSW (where the film premiered) seems to say that We Are Still Here is a refreshingly scary horror film that has a lot of personality to it. Geoghegan has been a festival darling and this could be his big breakout horror flick that brings the public to him.

It’s no secret that we loved Ted Geoghegan’s feature debut, We Are Still Here (hitting theaters and VOD on June 5th via Dark Sky Films). It’s the perfect combination of originality and also being a love letter to the films of Fulci, Gordon and other trailblazing horror auteurs (review). It’s definitely a solid ghost story, filled with great actors like Barbara Crampton, Andrew Sensenig, Lisa Marie, Monte Markham and Larry Fessenden in one of my favorite genre performances in years.
Dark Sky sent over the Brand New trailer for the film, and it certainly does an excellent job at conveying the dread and horror that fills We Are Still Here. Do your fright loving selves a favor and be sure to run to the nearest theater playing it or if you must, catch We Are Still Here on VOD beginning this Friday!

Buying a new house? It might be a good idea to research its history first - especially if it happens to be part of a small community out in the middle of nowhere like the one in We Are Still Here. Ted Geoghegan's feature directorial debut stars Barbara Crampton and Andrew Sensenig as Anne and Paul Sacchetti. After the death of their son, they opt to get away from it all by ditching the city for a secluded home in New England. When strange things start happening in their new abode, Anne is quick to assume that it's their son trying to make contact, but little does she know that other spirits have already laid claim to the home. You can catch a glimpse of Crampton, her unwelcome guests and a shot of Lisa Marie and Larry Fessenden as the Sacchettis' good friends in our exclusive We Are Still Here pictures below. »

With writer/director David Robert Mitchell's Cannes-premiered "It Follows" bringing in over $16 million at the domestic box office on a slim $2 million budget, the theatrical market seems ripe for another arty horror movie hit to arise. So which of this year's festival favorites could follow (no pun intended) in "It Follows'" footsteps? With the close of the 3rd annual Stanley Film Festival on Sunday, below I've pegged six buzzed-about horror titles from this year's three major festivals so far (Sundance, SXSW and Stanley) that could become the next unlikely breakout in theaters. "The Witch" Director: Robert Eggers Cast: Anya Taylor-Joy, Ralph Ineson, Kate Dickie Synopsis: New England, 1630: William and Katherine lead a devout Christian life, homesteading on the edge of an impassible wilderness, with five children. When their newborn son mysteriously vanishes and their crops fail, the family begins to turn on one another. Screened at: Sundance »

I have yet to see We Are Still Here but it's one of the main attractions here at the 2015 Stanley Film Festival so I wanted to make sure I had a chance to speak with writer/director Ted Geoghegan before the film's unveiling to get his thoughts. We discuss what it was like to make his feature directorial debut, how he achieved the icy look of the film, and the practical implications of all of those gore effects, We Are Still Here screens on May 2nd at 9:45 Pm at the Historic Park Theater in Estes Park. It was produced by Travis Stevens and stars Barbara Crampton, Larry Fessenden, Lisa Marie, Monte Markham, and Andrew Sensenig.

Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter at the Academy Awards Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter on the Oscars' Red Carpet Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter sported matching hairdos upon their arrival at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Tim Burton's global blockbuster Alice in Wonderland, in which Helena Bonham Carter is one of the featured players (as the Red Queen), won Oscars for Best Costume Design and Best Art Direction. Bonham Carter was a Best Supporting Actress nominee for Tom Hooper's The King's Speech (as another queen, Elizabeth). Helena Bonham Carter: Career boosted by Oscar nomination Helena Bonham Carter's film career began in earnest in James Ivory's 1986 Best Picture Oscar nominee A Room with a View, in which she romanced Julian Sands. She kept on working without creating too much of a stir – e.g., Lady Jane, »

Eli Wallach and Anne Jackson on the Oscars' Red Carpet Eli Wallach and Anne Jackson at the Academy Awards Eli Wallach and wife Anne Jackson are seen above arriving at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony, held on Sunday, Feb. 27, at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. The 95-year-old Wallach had received an Honorary Oscar at the Governors Awards in November 2010. See also: "Doris Day Inexplicably Snubbed by Academy," "Maureen O'Hara Honorary Oscar," "Honorary Oscars: Mary Pickford, Greta Garbo Among Rare Women Recipients," and "Hayao Miyazaki Getting Honorary Oscar." Delayed film debut The Actors Studio-trained Eli Wallach was to have made his film debut in Fred Zinnemann's Academy Award-winning 1953 blockbuster From Here to Eternity. Ultimately, however, Frank Sinatra – then a has-been following a string of box office duds – was cast for a pittance, getting beaten to a pulp by a pre-stardom Ernest Borgnine. For his bloodied efforts, Sinatra went on »

Strip away the aqua hair and Lisa Marie Presley's son looks a lot like his famous grandfather, the one and only Elvis Presley. The singer and son Benjamin Keough hit the red carpet together in Sin City on Thursday night, where they honored The King at the grand opening of The Elvis Presley Theater at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort and Casino. We never see Presley's son with ex Danny Keough out in public with her, so this was a very rare treat. Both Lisa Marie and Ben, 22, share the same baby blue eyes and Presley pout as their legendary ancestor. Lisa Marie opened up about her son's resemblance to her father with Cmt back in 2012. "He does [look so much like Elvis]! He was at the Opry and was the quiet storm behind the stage. Everybody turned around and looked when he was over there. Everybody was grabbing him for a photo because it is just uncanny, »

The King would be proud! Priscilla Presley and her daughter, Lisa Marie, looked nearly identical standing next to each other at the debut of "Graceland Presents Elvis: The Exhibition, The Show, The Experience" at Westgate Las Vegas Resort and Casino on Thursday, April 23. The Presley matriarch, 69, who co-founded Elvis Presley Enterprises, looked elegant in a polka-dot-topped dress with sheer sleeves. Dangling earrings that reached her shoulders and cap-toe heels completed her ensemble. Meanwhile, Elvis' daughter, 47, complemented her mom in a black top teamed with a Chanel [...] »

Forget the teaser trailer and the full feature. Have you seen the first official still from Ted Geoghegan’s feature directorial debut, We Are Still Here? (It's on the right.) That image alone proves it’s one heck of a splatter film. The story centers on Paul (Andrew Sensenig) and Anne (Barbara Crampton). After their son is killed in a car crash, they opt to get away from it all and move to a house in the New England countryside. Trouble is, they don't move into just any old house. They move into one with an especially dark and sinister history. While in Austin for SXSW, I got the opportunity to sit down with Geoghegan, Crampton, Sensenig and co-stars Larry Fessenden, Monte Markham and Lisa Marie to discuss what it took to make the film. The group talked about their first impressions of Geoghegan’s script, finding the perfect house, »

In 1996, Lisa Marie stole "Mars Attacks" without ever speaking a word. Tim Burton's then-girlfriend and muse starred as "Martian Girl," an undercover spy from outer space sent to infiltrate the White House while wearing one of the tightest dresses and biggest wigs we've ever seen. With the film's 20th anniversary next year, toofab's Brian Particelli caught up with the actress at this year's SXSW -- where she was promoting her new horror flick "We Are Still Here." "I loved working on that, that was fun. I have a scar from the wig!" she reveals in a candid chat. "I got a hole in my head from that damn wig! It's always worth it, no complaints. Whatever it takes, just to get that picture." Marie added that she had to be "sewn into the dress" and couldn't sit (or go to the restroom!) during shooting. As for the memorable hair piece, »

As far as directorial debuts go, writer/director Ted Geoghegan has done an admirable job with We Are Still Here by crafting a quirky and clever supernaturally-infused tale of horror that wisely chooses to take a rather familiar premise into some unusual and often shocking territories. For anyone who grew up on a steady diet of horror movies from the last few decades, We Are Still Here has a lot of ingenuity and heart to offer as well as an unflinching third act that goes right for the jugular.
Trying to come to terms with the untimely death of their son, we meet Paul (Andrew Sensenig) and Anne (Crampton) Sacchetti at the start of We Are Still Here as they are moving into a secluded new house located in a small New England town. The move is meant to be a fresh start for the grieving parents but it only causes them further emotional distress, »
