Top 9 Films Based on Supernatural True Events

5 hours ago | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

There's something more chilling about movies based on true events. Knowing that at least some version of what you're seeing on the screen actually happened in real life makes the movie more powerful. With the upcoming release of The Quiet Ones, we decided to reminisce about other movies based on horrific real life events.

The Quiet Ones is inspired by a true story of a university experiment done on a young girl that goes horribly, horribly wrong, so we focused on movies based on claims of supernatural true events.

There is a huge list of honorable mentions in this category. We could even break it down into sub-categories, like movies based on the antics of Ed Gein: The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, The Silence of the Lambs, Psycho and Deranged. True crime reenactments: In Cold Blood, Helter Skelter and Zodiac just to name a few of the best. Even real »

16 April 2014 1:43 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After halting production on Fast & Furious 7 following the tragic death of leading man Paul Walker back in November, Universal Pictures has now enlisted Walker’s brothers Caleb and Cody Walker to assist in completing some of the action shots and other scenes left incomplete. The news was announced on the film’s official Facebook page, with the following statement….

The Fast & Furious saga is about family. The characters are connected by the bond of family, and it is how all of us who have worked together for more than thirteen years feel about each other. It certainly defines how we feel about our fans.

Our family experienced an unthinkable shock in November. We had to take time to grieve Paul, the brother we love and lost, and to figure out if we should move on with our film.

We came together and all felt the only choice was to continue. »

‘Friday the 13th’ Reboot May Be Directed By ‘V/H/S’ Helmer

15 April 2014 2:24 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Franchise maintenance can be a tricky enterprise. After emerging as a proven hit and an established brand, a movie franchise has to play to what works while also figuring out ways to constantly reinvent, all the better to avoid becoming stagnant. That’s a delicate balancing act, and one that only the very best series manage to pull off; take, for example, the Fast and the Furious series, which recently traded long-time director Justin Lin for The Conjuring wunderkind James Wan, while also sticking with the films’ most recognizable element – its cast.

Currently, the legendary Friday the 13th series is going through its own changing of the guard, after petering out and firing back up in fits and spurts ...

Paul Walker’s Brothers Caleb & Cody Step In for Fast & Furious 7

15 April 2014 1:40 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

The Fast & Furious saga was dealt an unimaginable blow at the end of last year, when leading man Paul Walker died in a tragic car accident. Production on the upcoming Fast & Furious 7 was halted, giving the cast and crew time to grieve for their lost family member, and to make a decision as to what to do with the incomplete film.

It was soon decided that the franchise would continue, using the footage that Walker had already shot for the seventh movie, and production started up again earlier this month.

The way in which the film would continue was still unknown when it did, but now the franchise’s Facebook has revealed that Walker’s brothers, Caleb and Cody, are stepping in to help complete the rest of the film in his place.

We have resumed shooting and now welcome Paul’s brothers, Caleb and Cody, into our Fast family. »

'Mad Max': 25 Things You Didn't Know About the Mel Gibson Classic

12 April 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"It's that rat circus out there, I'm beginning to enjoy it. Look, any longer out on that road and I'm one of them, a terminal psychotic, except that I've got this bronze badge that says that I'm one of the good guys."

And so we were introduced to the ticking time bomb of fury that is Mel Gibson, at least on screen, in "Mad Max."

Released 35 years ago this week (on April 12, 1979), George Miller's film about a near-future cop who turns vigilante when a biker gang kills his partner and his family, made an international star out of Gibson, made Miller an A-list director, and helped put the new wave of Australian cinema on the world map. It also launched a franchise that continues to this day; next year, Miller will finally release the long-gestating "Mad Max: Fury Road," with Tom Hardy taking over as Max.

‘Oculus’ revitalizes supernatural horror with an essential dose of heart and smarts

8 April 2014 7:30 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Oculus

Written by Mike Flanagan and Jeff Howard

Directed by Mike Flanagan

USA, 2013

Thanks to the likes of James Wan, paranormal horror is all the rage. From Paranormal Activity to Insidious and The Conjuring, audiences are irretrievably hooked to tales of nuclear families being bloodlessly menaced by only-fleetingly-visible entities of malicious intent. What’s remarkable about Mike Flanagan’s Oculus, which follows his no-budget wonder Absentia, is how it manages to wring genuine dread from a beyond-worn subgenre simply by paying close attention to the realities of its deeply troubled characters. Oculus functions equally well as a tragic psychodrama as it does a horror film.

Flanagan appears to have taken inspiration from Stephen King’s seminal It, in which a group of childhood friends reunite to vanquish an evil force that has long plagued their town. Where King’s novel (and the TV-movie adaptation) adopted a neatly bifurcated structure, Flanagan flits between past and present, »
