Exclusive: Jason Blum Discusses The Blumhouse Book Of Nightmares: The Haunted City

2 hours ago | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Blumhouse Productions has offered plentiful scares and engrossing stories on the big screen for years, but with today's release of The Blumhouse Book of Nightmares: The Haunted City via their Blumhouse Books imprint, the company will bring infectious fear to the printed page. Daily Dead caught up with prolific producer Jason Blum to discuss the first Blumhouse Books release.

This book includes "Valdivia", a captivating short story by Eli Roth. What was his reaction when you asked him to be a part of this project?

Jason Blum: I just have a lot of admiration for Eli for a lot of different reasons, but I think Eli was one of the first people I asked, if not the first one. It wasn't even, "Let me talk to my lawyer. Let me talk to my agent. Let me think about it." He's just like, "That sounds awesome. I got a story. »

Shark Week Reveals First Look of Swell Shark in ‘Alien Shark: Close Encounters’ Clip (Exclusive Video)

22 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

In a new clip from Monday’s episode of “Alien Sharks: Close Encounters,” researchers get an up-close look at the swell shark, the leopard-patterned shark billed as “notoriously bad swimmers.” The special is part of Discovery’s 28th annual Shark Week summer programming block, which began Sunday. Scientists observe the way the leopard shark’s skin behaves under different light conditions, noting that its bio-fluorescent properties are used both to identify other swell sharks and to camouflage itself against a reef.

Eli Roth Loves Sharks

5 July 2015 1:29 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Eli Roth may be known as the guy who takes perverse glee in mutilating human bodies in his films (he is, after all, the guy who ostensibly created "torture porn"), but you may not know that he also has a soft spot for sharks. He’s working on a shark movie right now, Meg, an adaptation of Steve Alten's 1999 bestselling novel, “about a giant megaladon shark that escapes from the bottom of the ocean and wreaks havoc on the ecosystem," which he sees "as an opportunity to re-educate and re-brand scary sharks in movies.” It will purportedly make use of CGI sharks instead of real ones (feeding actors to sharks is banned by the Actors' Equity Association). But Roth's love goes beyond the artifice of CGI sharks in horror movies; he was asked to swim with real sharks for Discovery Channel’s beloved Shark Week. Speaking with Vanity Fair, »

Watch: 2 Trailers For Eli Roth's 'The Green Inferno' Head Into A Jungle Of Terror

2 July 2015 2:00 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It has taken a while for Eli Roth's "The Green Inferno" to land in cinemas after doing runs, starting in 2013 at the Toronto International Film Festival, Edinburgh International Film Festival, and Sitges - Catalonian International Film Festival. After running into a distribution snag that delayed a 2014 release, the film is now ready and a new trailer has just dropped. Read More: Review: Eli Roth's Cannibal Horror 'The Green Inferno' A homage and love letter to the Italian cannibal exploitation/horror films of the 1980s such as Umberto Lenzi’s 1981 “Cannibal Ferox” — the title is taken from a “film within a film” that screens in Ruggero Deodato’s 1980 cannibal exploitation flick “Cannibal Holocaust” — Roth’s ‘Green Inferno’ follows a group of young, idealistic, privileged, and pretentious college activists who travel from New York to the Amazon in order to save the rainforest and a vanishing native tribe. »

1 July 2015 2:24 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

UK box office top ten and analysis for the weekend of Friday 26th June to Sunday 28th June 2015…

 

Universal Pictures continued its stellar box office run this past weekend with the release of the Despicable Me spinoff Minions, which dethroned Jurassic World at the top of the UK chart with a solid opening weekend of £11,558,946. That’s a record for the franchise, surpassing the £9.95 million debut of Despicable Me 2, and the biggest ever three-day opening for an animated film on these shores.

‘Knock Knock’ Review

30 June 2015 5:08 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Keanu Reeves, Lorenza Izzo, Ana de Armas, Ignacia Allamand, Aaron Burns, Colleen Camp | Written by Eli Roth, Guillermo Amoedo, Nicolás López | Directed by Eli Roth

There’s something very traditional about Eli Roth’s recent horror output, be it the score he utilises here in Knock Knock or the fact that his last few directorial efforts seem to spend half of their running time setting up the film before the true plot kicks in and everything goes to hell in a handcart.

That’s certainly the case here.

Knock Knock starts off pretty innocently enough: architect and family man Evan (Reeves) is left home alone – to work – whilst his wife and kids head off for a weekend away. His peace and quiet is disturbed by two strangers, nubile young girls (as is the wont of many a horror film cliche,  looking for a party they should be at. Only they never reach the party. »

Knock Knock review: ‘enjoyable, entertaining but somewhat infuriating’

29 June 2015 3:47 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Knock Knock review: Eli Roth’s new horror movie that stars Keanu Reeves is ‘enjoyable, entertaining but somewhat infuriating.’ Knock Knock review

Director: Eli Roth

Cast: Keanu Reeves, Lorenza Izzo, Ana De Armas, Colleen Camp

Certificate: 18

Running Time: 99 Minutes

Synopsis: Family man Evan (Reeves) finds his wedding vows tested after rescuing two young women, Genesis (Izzo) and Bel (De Armas), during a stormy night.

Perpetually cast as a bachelor, Reeves struggles during the opening moments of Knock Knock to convincingly play the husband and father role of Evan. His acting is a little hammy and over-the-top, and doesn’t feel all that natural. Thankfully this only lasts through the opening sequence, as soon enough Evan is left home alone so that he can get some work done.

Once on his own Reeves is back in his comfort zone as he channels a bumbling Hugh Grant for his first encounter with his unexpected houseguests. »

Dinosaurs eat people, that’s something we can get behind, but what about people eating people? This is the latest trailer for Eli Roth’s next horror, The Green Inferno.

Knock Knock review – Keanu Reeves may not be all there

Funny Games meets Fatal Attraction for a high-stakes date in this zeitgeist-tapping erotic thriller from Eli Roth featuring two hot strangers and an Uber-fueled plot twist

Related: Welcome to the orgy! How the sex movie got its groove back

Several production credits aside, Eli Roth has been lying low since the skilfully nasty Hostel initiated the torture-porn cycle a decade ago. We might, at a pinch, see signs of a maturing in his comeback film’s premise: here, female sexuality threatens not the snickering fratboys of his earlier work, but a middle-aged man who could stand for any number of ageing showbiz roués. With calculated perversity, Roth and co-writers Guillermo Amoedo and Nicolas Lopez attempt a crossbreed of Fatal Attraction and Funny Games, staging a sustained assault on the idyllic Hollywood retreat architect father-of-two Keanu Reeves shares with his loving artist wife).

Review: Anarchy Parlor

26 June 2015 5:32 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Every so often, a new sub-category of fright film comes along that takes the horror community by surprise, generated by a one film with a simple idea, capturing it onto celluloid, and delivering it to a mass audience. When that one film that starts a revolution and re-vitalizes interest in the genre his it big, it then becomes a blueprint for other films to carbon copy it in hopes of duplicating the same interest and revenue of its successful template. When The Last Broadcast and The Blair Witch Project were made and released, a substantial amount of copy-cat films were made that intended to replicate the same, exact low budget, shaky-cam, cinema verite-style of filmmaking that are still being produced ad nauseam as this review is being written. As with the release of Paranormal Activity, there was a sudden boom in films being made that followed the same formula almost »
