Well, that’s the story of Burying the Ex, a new romantic zombie comedy, or zom-com, as the cast and crew call it, starring Ashley Greene (Twilight) and Anton Yelchin (Star Trek). EW was on set for an exclusive first look and a chance to talk with the stars and director.
Burying the Ex follows Max (Yelchin), an all-around nice guy, and his incredibly beautiful but overbearing and manipulative girlfriend Evelyn (Greene). After they move in together, Evelyn is killed in a freak accident, »

Remakes are nothing new in Hollywood. Take a look back through cinema history and there are plenty of example of ideas and stories being recycled for new audiences. Take, for instance, Robin Hood and Zorro, whose big-screen exploits stretch right the way back to Douglas Fairbanks in the silent era.
Right now two high profile re-dos - Carrie and Oldboy - are screening in cinemas. Considering just how well the originals are regarded, it begs one simple question - why? One carries a recognisable name, the other is a critically lauded foreign-language cult film that has a limited audience.
In the end it may all boil down to making money, but that's still no excuse for some of the remakes that have been served up in recent memory. Digital Spy looks at 9 cinematic remakes that didn't need to happen below...

The brilliant genre veteran Bill Moseley has joined the gory horror The Summer I Died after Riothouse Entertainment picked up the rights to the same-title novel (also known as The Roger Huntington Saga) by Ryan C. Thomas. The story centres on two lifelong friends who, while on a day trip into the woods come to the aide of a screaming women, only to find themselves hunted by a backwoods maniac and his bloodthirsty dog.

Star & Dagger, an all-female blues rock unit founded by former White Zombie bassist Sean Yseult, recently released their debut album Tomorrowland Blues. and the track “In My Blood” is now accompanied by an ambitious video which pays shot-by-shot homage to Stanley Kubrick's 1980 horror classic The Shining. Of course, Star & Dagger isn't the first band to quote the iconic imagery from that film, and probably won't be the last (the best-known example being “The Kill” by Thirty Seconds to Mars). But “In My Blood” offers some of the more faithful and clever recreations of Shining set-pieces we've seen lately, and it's pretty clear Yseult's genre and cult movie sensibilities extend far beyond her tenure in White Zombie (the band's earlier video for “Your Mama Was a Grifter” is a spin on the grindhouse classic Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill!). The trio, which also includes vocalist Von Hessling and guitarist Dava She Wolf, »

We recently reported that Silent Night, Deadly Night was coming back to theaters just in time for Christmas, but Silent Night is making a return to theaters as well. Directed by Steven C. Miller, Silent Night is a loose remake of Silent Night, Deadly Night and was originally released around this time last year:
“A loose remake of the horror classic Silent Night, Deadly Night, the film’s stellar cast includes Malcolm McDowell (Rob Zombie’s Halloween, Easy A), Jaime King (Sin City, My Bloody Valentine 3D), Donal Logue (Shark Night 3D, Blade), Lisa Marie (Sleepy Hollow), Brendan Fehr (Final Destination, X-Men First Class), and Ellen Wong (Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World).
McDowell and King star as a small-town sheriff and deputy on the hunt for a murderous Santa Claus terrorizing their community on Christmas Eve. But with the streets full of Santas for the annual Christmas parade, the killer is hiding in plain sight. »

Brea Grant is perfection incarnate. Period. A indie horror darling, Brea Grant skyrocketed into geek royalty as Daphne Melbrook on Heroes, as Mya Rockwell in Rob Zombie’s Halloween II, as Ryan Chambers on Dexter, and my personal favorite, as Daenerys in the Funny or Die exclusive video Where Are My Dragons? To put it simply, Brea Grant does it all. She’s an actress, director, writer, comic book creator, and one of the sweetest people I’ve ever had the pleasure to interact with. After directing, writing, and starring in the film Best Friends Forever, Brea Grant has jumped back into the role of taking over the world with her webseries The Real Housewives Of Horror. This may just be her best creation, yet. One of the smartest parodies out there, Brea Grant combines her sharp wit and pop culture knowledge to extreme heights and completely knocks it out of the park. »

This week organisers announced the complete line-up for next year’s festival with none other than Aerosmith unveiled as the final addition to an already stellar line-up of hard rock prodigies, including Fall Out Boy, Avengeed Sevenfold, Alter Bridge, Rob Zombie and Linkin Park.
The line-up and all details of the event were released in full at a lavish party in East London’s newest and most grandiose bar, Far Rock Away. With trippy and erotic artwork every which way you turn, a huge case of figurines housing characters from Lord of the Rings to Marvel, vintage arcade machines, an intimidating collection of vinyl, decadent couches and private areas with a menu of craft beers and cocktails that you will struggle to better, it is like Las Vegas condensed into a bar in the East End. A more rock ’n’ roll venue I would struggle to name you and the »

A haunted house experience can - at times - feel boring and a little too cheesy to be really scary. Rock legend and filmmaker Rob Zombie took the cheesiness of a haunted house and gave it a scary edge in his multiple weekend spookfest, The Great American Nightmare at the Pomona Fairplex, and instead of having some people dressed up as zombies trying to invade your personal space without getting too close, he chose to have a handful of scary monsters who are not afraid to push your boundaries, actually touch you and scare you senseless. When I first entered the Great American Nightmare, the first thing I saw was a zombie with a Nazi uniform saunter over to »

As we come up on the 35th Anniversary of John Carpenter's seminal classic Halloween, Vimeo user Billy J. Kirkus has yet another gem on tap from the film... the very first take of the seminal film's opening scene in which Michael kills Judith.
“This is the first take of the opening to Halloween,” explains Kirkus. "This was the first time they tried shooting it, without the cuts that they did in take number 2. They only shot this whole scene twice. Notice all of the blue in the picture… completely toned down for the recent release of the movie on Blu-ray.
Kirkus also urges readers to contact Trancas Films and let them know you want to see the rest of the unseen Halloween footage.
“I was amazed that we got that shot in just a few takes, two to be exact” said Carpenter in Jamie Lee Curtis: Scream Queen by Jim Grove. »

It's Masters of Horror week on "Larry King Now," and most recently King dissected the brain of Eli Roth. We've got the full interview here along with the lowdown on who else's brain Larry's been munching.
In a frank and entertaining interview, Eli chats with Larry about how his parents encouraged his passions early in his childhood, recalls The Wizard of Oz and its flying monkeys as one of the first film experiences where he truly felt scared, and even gives Larry some tips for spooking his boys. He mentions that he likes to sit in the front during his movies to watch the audience react.
Roth tells Larry how the themes in horror films are a reflection of the American public’s fears and feelings about the government (Hostel was political allegory for the Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld years) and also answers social media questions directly from his fans. »

Every year, we here at Sound On Sight celebrate the month of October with 31 Days of Horror; and every year, I update the list of my favourite horror films ever made. Last year, I released a list that included 150 picks. This year, I’ll be upgrading the list, making minor alterations, changing the rankings, adding new entries, and possibly removing a few titles. I’ve also decided to publish each post backwards this time for one reason: the new additions appear lower on my list, whereas my top 50 haven’t changed much, except for maybe in ranking. I am including documentaries, short films and mini series, only as special mentions – along with a few features that can qualify as horror, but barely do.
Come Back Tonight To See My List Of The 200 Best!

Ah, Michael Myers. One of cinema's most notorious serial killers; pure evil on two legs. And whereas 'Psycho' is often considered the granddaddy of the "slasher" film, that'd make John Carpenter's original 1978 classic the "daddy" of this particular horror sub-genre. As is often noted, the original 'Halloween' has very little in terms of on screen violence and gore, yet it boasts some of horror's most memorable "kills." The sequels naturally upped the ante. It's no surprise that by the time they got to 'Halloween 6,' the original & now infamous producer's cut had portions re-shot with gore inserted to match what was going in the 'Friday The 13th' series at the time. Some of these outrageous kills feel tonally right for a 'Halloween' movie, others don't. But for better or for worse, Michael's always held his own against the competition! And since it's Halloween, we thought we'd »
