New December Release Date for Haunted Camera Film Polaroid

28 September 2017 12:04 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

As readers of R.L. Stine's Say Cheese and Die! books in his Goosebumps series know, not all old cameras can be trusted, and some can even be deadly. Such is the case in Dimension Films' upcoming horror film Polaroid, which now has a December 1st release date, several months later than its original August 25th slot.

"From the producers of the The Ring and The Grudge and based on the award-winning short by Lars Klevberg, comes the next iconic and bold new vision in horror: Polaroid. High school loner Bird Fitcher has no idea what dark secrets are tied to the mysterious Polaroid vintage camera she stumbles upon, but it doesn’t take long to discover that those who have their picture taken meet a tragic end."

Directed by Lars Klevberg and produced by Roy Lee and Chris Bender, Polaroid stars Kathryn Prescott (Finding Carter), Mitch Pileggi (The X-Files »

We’re pretty stoked for PolaroidDimension Films’ new horror film that stars The Hive‘s Kathryn Prescott as a high school loner who stumbles upon a vintage camera that turns photos into tragedy.

1 August 2017 11:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

The Glass Castle

With summer drawing to a close, August brings a bevy of films by and about women that engage with quirky themes and unique perspectives. The month kicks off with “Step,” Amanda Lipitz’ documentary about a girls’ step dance team based in Baltimore. In particular, “Step” follows a group of high school seniors as they prepare to graduate and become the first in their families to head to college.

In the second week of August, we’ll see a pair of films centered on women recreating their lives. “The Glass Castle,” the film adaptation of Jeannette Walls’ bestselling memoir, follows a young woman’s struggle to break free of her dysfunctional parents. The dark comedy “Ingrid Goes West” sees a mentally unstable Aubrey Plaza travel to Los Angeles determined to build a friendship with an Instagram influencer.

August 18 brings the release of “Patti Cake$,” focused on New Jersey girl with dreams of being a hip-hop performer, and the U.S. opening of the highly-anticipated documentary “Whitney: Can I Be Me,” a portrait of the late singer Whitney Houston. Also being released are a pair of women-written horror films: “The Ice Cream Truck,” in which a woman moves to a suburban neighborhood plagued by a murderous ice cream truck driver, and “The Monster Project,” about a group of filmmakers who accidentally summon other-worldly beings.

At the end of the month, Eliza Hittman’s Sundance darling “Beach Rats” arrives, a film woven from themes like teenage rebellion, sex, and love. The long-gestating “Tulip Fever” will also open. The period romance stars Alicia Vikander as an unhappily married woman who falls for the artist (Dane DeHaan) hired to paint her portrait.

Here are all of the women-centric, women-directed, and women-written films debuting in August. All descriptions are from press materials unless otherwise noted.

Chronicling the adventures of an eccentric, resilient, and tight-knit family, “The Glass Castle” is a remarkable story of unconditional love.

When Ingrid moves to La and manages to insinuate herself into the social media star’s life, their relationship quickly goes from #Bff to #Wtf. “Ingrid Goes West” is a savagely hilarious dark comedy that satirizes the modern world of social media and proves that being #perfect isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

Marjorie Prime

Marjorie Prime

Eighty-six-year-old Marjorie (Lois Smith) spends her final, ailing days with a computerized version of her deceased husband (Jon Hamm). With the intent to recount their life together, Marjorie’s “Prime” relies on the information from her and her kin to develop a more complex understanding of his history. As their interactions deepen, the family begins to develop ever diverging recounts of their lives, drawn into the chance to reconstruct the often painful past. “Marjorie Prime” shines a light on an often-obscured corner in the world of artificial intelligence and its interactions with mortality, and forces us to ask, “If we had the opportunity, how would we choose to rebuild the past, and what would we decide to forget?”

“What Happened to Monday” — Co-Written by Kerry Williamson (Available on Netflix)

“What Happened to Monday”

In a not so distant future, where overpopulation and famine have forced governments to undertake a drastic “One Child Policy,” seven identical sisters live a hide-and-seek existence pursued by the Child Allocation Bureau. The Bureau, directed by the fierce Nicolette Cayman (Glenn Close), enforces a strict family-planning agenda that the sisters outwit by taking turns assuming the identity of one person: Karen Settman (Noomi Rapace). Taught by their grandfather (Willem Dafoe), who raised and named them — Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday — each can go outside once a week as their common identity, but are only free to be themselves in the prison of their own apartment. That is until, one day, Monday does not come home…

Anyone for a killer antique camera? New trailer for Polaroid arrives

30 June 2017 8:13 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

If the new trailer for upcoming horror, Polaroid is anything to go by we think we’ll be sticking digital cameras for the foreseeable… Prepare to feel that antique chill run down your spine.

Based on a short by Lars Klevberg, the horror delves into a new type of haunting with an evil entity taking residence inside an antique Polaroid camera, an entity that preys and devours all those that innocently dare to pose for a picture picking off high school teens like it’s dining out on a pack of Haribo.

The cast includes Mitch Pileggi as the adult “voice of reason,” who seemingly exists just to tell the kids “No, that antique polaroid camera is not causing all of your suspicious deaths” – to be subsequently proved wrong in front of his very eyes. It features Javier Botet, the Spanish actor who has made a career »

First Official Trailer for Horror Film 'Polaroid' About a Deadly Camera

29 June 2017 8:02 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Sometimes to deal with tragedies we make up urban legends." The Weinstein Company / Dimension Films has debuted the official trailer for a horror film titled Polaroid, about an Polaroid camera that kills people. Well, not exactly. The story is about a high schooler who finds an old Polaroid camera, and anyone who gets their picture taken by it will die in a "violent and tragic death." Not the most original concept, but seems like it has some good kills in it. Starring Kathryn Prescott, Mitch Pileggi, Grace Zabriskie, Tyler Young, Keenan Tracey, Samantha Logan, Priscilla Quintana, Madelaine Petsch and Javier Botet. This is based on the horror short Polaroid also from director Lars Klevberg, who is making his feature debut here.

Coming Distractions: The Polaroid trailer invites you to say cheese and die

29 June 2017 4:53 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Dimension Films has found the latest common household item for us all to be suddenly terrified by, releasing a trailer for its new horror film, Polaroid. The film—based on a short by Lars Klevberg—centers on an evil camera that doesn’t add ten pounds to anybody it photographs: It subtracts them, instead. All of them. Permanently. The camera kills people, is what we’re getting at. (Stop us if you’ve heard this one before.)

With Kathryn Prescott as the nerdy teen who finds the haunted antique, and The X-Files’ Mitch Peleggi stretching those old “disbelieve the crazy story” muscles as the town cop, the film sees Prescott and her fellow teen victims attempt to escape the evil camera’s curse. Presumably, we’ll get more flashes and snapshots of how that works out for them when the film arrives in theaters on August 25. »

Lily Collins Stars in Official Trailer for Anorexia Drama 'To the Bone'

20 June 2017 12:46 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"What's going on with you?" Netflix has released the first official trailer for a film titled To the Bone, an anorexia drama that premiered at the Sundance Film Festival to mostly positive reviews. To the Bone is the directorial debut of producer/writer Marti Noxon, and tells a very real story of a young woman struggling with anorexia, or the inability to eat and an intense obsession with looking thin. Lily Collins stars, giving a remarkable (and almost unbelievable because of how scary thin she is) performance as Ellen. The full cast includes Keanu Reeves, Alex Sharp, Kathryn Prescott, Liana Liberato, Alanna Ubach, Carrie Preston, and Ciara Bravo. I caught this at Sundance and it's an endearing, heartfelt film worth your time.

1 June 2017 12:01 PM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Lucy Hale in “Pretty Little Liars”: ABC Family/ Freeform

Pretty Little Liars’” famous time jump took its high school protagonists five years into the future, but the show’s star, Lucy Hale, is set to return to high school one last time. She and Kathryn Prescott (“24: Legacy”), Alexandra Shipp (“Straight Outta Compton”), and Awkwafina (“Neighbors 2”) play four best friends in the throes of senior year in “Dude,” a coming-of-age comedy directed by Olivia Milch. Deadline reports that Netflix just secured a world rights deal for the project.

The film follows the four girls in the final two weeks of their high school experience. “It’s a grounded comedy about dealing with the first real losses in life — leaving your best friends and contemplating death and the passage of time, that odd mixture of grief and nostalgia experienced by young people as they try to understand these losses. It is also about getting stoned with your friends in your car while listening to hip-hop,” Deadline summarizes.

Dude” is produced by June Pictures, along with Heather Rae (“Tallulah”), Langley Perer (“I Am Number Four”), and Jen Isaacson (“Oprah’s Master Class”).

Milch co-wrote “Ocean’s 8,” the upcoming “Ocean’s 11” reboot starring Cate Blanchett, Sandra Bullock, Anne Hathaway, Rihanna, Mindy Kaling, Helena Bonham Carter, and Awkwafina.

The series finale of “Pretty Little Liars” will air on Freeform June 27. Marlene King created the mega hit mystery based on the book series by Sara Shepard. Up next for Hale is “Life Sentence,” a new CW series co-created by Erin Cardillo (“Fuller House”). She plays a woman who is diagnosed with terminal cancer, later finds out she’s not dying, and is forced to revisit the choices she made when she lived like there was no tomorrow.

As readers of R.L. Stine's Say Cheese and Die! books in his Goosebumps series know, not all old cameras can be trusted, and some can even be deadly. Such is the case in Dimension Films' upcoming horror film Polaroid, and we've been provided with a new teaser poster to share with Daily Dead readers ahead of the film's theatrical release this summer.

"From the producers of the The Ring and The Grudge, comes the next iconic horror franchise: Polaroid. High school loner Bird Fitcher has no idea what dark secrets are tied to the Polaroid vintage camera she stumbles upon, but it doesn’t take long to discover that those who have their picture taken meet a tragic end. Based on the award-winning short by Lars Klevberg, the story mixes elements of The Ring and Final Destination to create one of the most unique and scary films."
