One Way Static Records has announced their upcoming vinyl soundtrack release for Umberto Lenzi’s Cannibal Ferox (Aka Make Them Die Slowly). Now available for pre-order, we have details on the limited edition release, including the promise of artwork so offensive that they can’t show it online.
“Cannibal Ferox is often described as one of horror filmdom’s golden grails of soundtrack albums and holds it’s place between other contemporary classics like Cannibal Holocaust, The Beyond, Zombi 2,… Praised by composers and directors all over the world. Eli Roth described it as “powerful tribal, pounding stuff” and served as an inspiration when editing his new movie “The Green Inferno” (which is an homage to the Cannibal film genre).
Like many of the Italian cannibal films, the soundtrack is just as powerful and effective as the disturbing butchery. The use of funk guitar, bass, rock piano and synthesizer makes »

The question of how far a person will go -- or how low a person will sink -- for large financial gain is one of the more prevalent and provocative questions in recent horror cinema. Eli Roth's Hostel series had a dark and compelling hook that showed how the very wealthy can toy with a person's flesh just because they need a new kick. More recently the excellently twisted thriller called Cheap Thrills offered a series of progressively more disturbing bribes and wagers.
The also fascinating Series 7: The Contenders (2001) offered murder for money, as did Roger Corman's delightful Death Race 2000 from 1975 and the half-decent remake from 2008. Going back as far as The Most Dangerous Game (1932), and probably earlier, the idea of murder as a financial "game" has been a hallmark of horror cinema. One mentions all of that because of this: several years ago the Weinstein »

The event was held at Ago restaurant in support of the Ghetto Film School, an org that Russell has supported for 12 years.
“It’s a wonderful public high school that the city of New York has embraced, where kids from every borough can go to high school and have a cinema-based curriculum,” Russell said. “It’s come a long a way from a little gleam in (founder) Joe Hall’s eyes.”
Robert De Niro, who had a small role in “Hustle,” graced the ’70s-themed party by having dinner at the restaurant he part owns, and he gave Russell a kiss on the cheek »

Let's just get it out of the way from the beginning: it'd be really hard to make a worse Cabin Fever (2002) sequel than Cabin Fever 2 (2009). Arguably the only weak movie in Ti West's filmography (and he's not a big fan of it himself), Cabin Fever 2 was the victim of endless studio tinkering, release delays, and really sloppy post-production decisions. The sequel has gone on to earn a small but vocal fanbase, however, and Eli Roth's original squirm-fest continues to bring in new horror geeks all the time. So surely there's some gas left in this franchise's tank, right?
Shockingly... yes! That's not to say that the slow-starting, frequently predictable Cabin Fever 3: Patient Zero is some sort of miniature classic, but if you liked Part 1 and you struggled through Part 2, you'll certainly find a few meaty morsels of splatter-laden lunacy in Part 3. Plus it has some of those »

Mainstream horror has shifted from gore to ghosts and found footage in the past few years, but there's still room for a good old fashioned splatter film here and there.

Directed by Kaare Andrews ("Altitude," "The ABCs of Death"), the film follows a group of friends enjoying a bachelor weekend in a yacht on the Caribbean.

They then have to find an uninfected survivor, "Patient Zero," in order to survive.The film stars Sean Astin ("The Lord of the Rings"), Currie Graham (Pompeii), Ryan Donowho (Soldiers of Fortune"), Mitch Ryan ("One Tree Hill"), and Jillian Murphy ("Bad Ass"), and follows »

Director: Kaare Andrews. Review: Adam Wing. What's that you say, Cabin Fever 3? What the hell happened to Cabin Fever 2? Spring Fever, you say? Nope. Still doesn't ring a bell. In all fairness, you'd be forgiven for missing the second part of this unwanted trilogy altogether. Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever was a mess of a movie, a film so terrifyingly bad even the director disowned it. To be fair to Ty West (The Innkeepers), the finished article was nothing like the film he envisaged, having abandoned the film at the start of post-production, but the studio stepped in and Cabin Fever 2 emerged, the product of too many cooks and not enough good taste. The original entry in the series, directed by Eli Roth, was one of the better cabin-in-the-woods movies, with unpredictable twists, a welcome dose of homage, sharp humour and gore aplenty. Now comes the horror sequel nobody asked for, »
What do you get when you cross chemical waste with beavers? The answer is the horror-comedy Zombeavers – and Hollywood’s latest viral phenomenon. The trailer for this film about (you guessed it!) zombified beavers has racked up almost 2 million views since it debuted a couple of weeks back. “It’s cool to get the validation,” says first-time director Jordan Rubin, who co-penned the film with regular writing partners Al and Jon Kaplan. “Once something starts getting up in the hits it’s interesting to see how people go, ‘Oh, we might have something here.”
So what was the “Eureka!” moment, »

After a six year break from directing between "Hostel: Part II" and the upcoming "The Green Inferno," it looks like Eli Roth won't let a gap like that happen again: he's lining up a new horror film to tackle. Roth has signed on to direct "Knock Knock," a film he co-wrote with "Aftershock" dudes Nicolas Lopez and Guillermo Amoedo. The plot? Well, it will tell the tale of "two young girls who show up unexpectedly at the home of a married man where they seduce him and wreak havoc on his perfect life." Sounds like a porno with an unhappy ending. Perhaps fittingly, this will be quick and dirty with the $10 million movie shooting in April. [The Wrap] Robert Schwentke, aka The Guy Who Made "R.I.P.D.," is bouncing back. First he bagged the gig helming the "Divergent" sequel "Insurgent," and now he's going to make a war flick to.

When we highlighted the red band trailer for The Sacrament last week, we pointed out that before The Green Inferno (hitting theaters this year), director Eli Roth (Hostel, Cabin Fever) had taken a six year break from directing. But he's not waiting so long to get back behind the camera again as The Wrap repots Roth will direct Knock Knock, a new horror film he co-write with Nicolas Lopez and Guillermo Amoedo, writers on the Roth-produced disaster horror Aftershock. And of course, Roth will also produce the film, which seems to be coming together quickly with veteran actress Colleen Camp also producing. The film will follow two young girls who show up unexpectedly at the home of a married man where they seduce him and wreak havoc on his perfect life. Sounds like a sexy version of The Strangers, but the horror angle isn't hard to surmise. Knock Knock will »

Hostel proprietor and Inglorious Basterds star Eli Roth has found his next project: horror movie Knock Knock. After a six-year gap between Hostel: Part II and his latest release, The Green Inferno, Roth will move straight onto the project with Aftershock co-writers Nicolas Lopez and Guillermo Amoedo.
According to The Wrap, Roth will produce with Colleen Camp, and the story is said to follow two young girls who show up unexpectedly at the home of a married man where they seduce him and wreak havoc on his perfect life. With a budget of only $10 million, production is expected to begin this April.
Roth is still attached to direct Warner Bros. vampire movie Harker, and made a name for himself with Cabin Fever and Hostel, later taking on roles in Netflix series Hemlock Grove and the low-budget genre movies Clown and Aftershock.

The network used the Olympics as a platform to air a teaser promo for the upcoming series over the weekend, going on to announce that the series will be thirteen episodes in length, with original creator Tim Kring back on board to executive produce the project.
Specifics on characters and storylines are of course being kept under wraps for now, but NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke revealed that they haven’t ruled out the possibility of original cast members reprising their roles. However, her choice of phrasing, “popping back in,” suggests that they will be limited to minor appearances.
The thirteen-episode miniseries will be a new stand-alone arc, and could well prove the perfect format to bring the original concept back to life. »
