Greatest Movie Deaths as Picked by ABCs of Death Directors [Nsfw]

20 hours ago

The directors behind the 26 short films in ABCs Of Death 2 have undertaken an epic project to determine "The Greatest Movie Deaths of All Time" -- using no accepted scientific method and zero statistical analysis the filmmakers have each selected their favorite scene, arriving at a definitive list of shocking, tragic, funny and frightening deaths for the Halloween season.

The selections are as widely diverse as you'd expect with a global roster of filmmakers that hail from Austria, Brazil, Canada, Cuba, France, Israel, Japan, Lithuania, Nigeria, Philippines, the UK and the Us.

A great challenge is to try and identify all of the deaths depicted in this supercut!

Trailer and Poster for Shane Abbess' Infini!

23 October 2014 2:44 PM, PDT

It's been seven years since Shane Abbess impressed audiences with his his stylish, low-budget purgatory actioner Gabriel (review), but after some false starts on a few projects (including being attached to direct Source Code, which eventually went to Duncan Jones), the Australian director is back in good form with Infini a scifi thriller with a great atmosphere reminiscent of Event Horizon.

Synopsis:

Set in the dark reaches of space, Infini is the story of a search and rescue team transported to a distant mining station to save Whit Charmicael (Daniel MacPherson) who is the lone survivor of a freak accident.

Using Slipstream technology the team must tran [Continued ...] »

Killer First Look at Werewolf Horror Late Phases [Trailer]

23 October 2014 11:21 AM, PDT

Who doesn't love a good werewolf movie, especially one that relies entirely on practical effects? If you don't, you might as well move on but if that sentence excited you, get ready to have your hair blown back by the kick ass trailer for Late Phases.

Directed by Adrián García Bogliano (director of Here Comes the Devil among many others), Late Phases unfolds in a retirement community which has been suffering from a rash of deadly animal attacks…

When grizzled war veteran Ambrose McKinley (Nick Damici) is forced into moving there by his yuppie son Will (Ethan Embry), the residents immediately take offense to Ambrose's abrasive personality. But that take-no-prisoners attitude may be just what Ambrose needs to survive as it becomes clear t [Continued ...] »

Horror Anthology Darknet, Featuring Natali, Hoban & Gudino, Comes to Netflix!

23 October 2014 10:31 AM, PDT

In the year since we first posted about the Canadian trans-media anthology project Darknet, a lot has happened though surprisingly, very little of it to do with the project itself. Mostly, darknet has entered the general consciousness thanks to the latest season of "House of Lies." Now that people know, or think they know, what really goes on on darknet, it'll be interesting to see how and if that general public tunes into a show that has very clear horror tendencies.

Darknet aired on Super Channel earlier this year but with so few subscribers, the show came and went with little fanfare but worry not because come tomorrow, Netflix subscribers in Canad [Continued ...] »

It Has Arrived! The Insidious: Chapter 3 Trailer Is Here!

23 October 2014 9:55 AM, PDT

We've already seen a bit of footage from the teaser trailer and behind the scenes of Insidious: Chapter 3 and you can't really blame the studio for pushing this just in time for Halloween even tough the movie isn't due until next summer.

A prequel to the previous two films, this new chapter is written and directed by actor-turned-director Leigh Whannell and stars Lin Shaye as Elise Rainier, a woman who reluctantly agrees to use her ability to contact the dead in order to help a teenage girl (Stefanie Scott) who has been targeted by a dangerous ghost. Dermot Mulroney also stars.

Ridley Scott's Halo: Nightfall Looks as Good as a Feature Film [Trailer]

22 October 2014 2:13 PM, PDT

I don't know from video games, but I know fans of the Halo series have been dreaming of a feature film for many, many years. While the news that Ridley Scott would produce a "digital series" was likely enticing, I don't think anyone expected Halo:Nightfall to look as big budget and glossy as this!

This trailer feels like it's for a blockbuster. We don't have a famous face, but we do have some great acting talent here in Mike Colter (The Good Wife) and a cast of others including Christina Chong (24: Live Another Day), Steve Waddington (The Last Of The Mohicans), Luke Neal (Wilderness) and Christian Contreras (Zero Dark Thirty.

Besides the acting you've got big visuals and scope and simply stunning cinematography that put Halo: Nightfall somewhere between Prometheus and Aliens visuall [Continued ...] »

The Woman In Black Returns In Creepy New Sequel Trailer

22 October 2014 11:39 AM, PDT

We had already seen a quick and not very informative preview of Hammer film's upcoming The Woman in Black: Angel of Death and with the movie's release slated for early 2015, the time has come for a good look at the trailer and not surprisingly, it's looking adequately creepy.

Directed by Tom Harper, the movie is based on a story written by Susan Hill, the woman responsible for the original novel, and picks up the story forty years after the events of the first movie, in the same creepy house that drove Daniel Radcliffe's Arthur Kipps to the brink. This time around the evil spirit is awakened by a group of children who are evacuated from London during WWII. Poor kids; they leave one [Continued ...] »

New on Blu-ray and DVD: Snowpiercer! The Purge: Anarchy! & More!

21 October 2014 9:35 AM, PDT

We don't throw the word 'masterpiece' around much, but I feel very comfortable labeling Bong Joon Ho's Snowpiercer just that. At the very least, it's the perfect art-house genre film in that it's consistently provocative while being also consistently entertaining. The performances are strong, the action is tight, the concept is compelling and the allegory is timely.

For me, the film also perfectly captures the weirdness of a comic book world. Tonally, comic books fluctuate from serious to surreal in a way that we don't like films to do, but Bong Joon Ho embraces the nature of that medium in a way we don [Continued ...] »

20 October 2014 12:46 PM, PDT

Forget that the third film in the Cabin Fever series was released in June, news has surfaced that Eli Roth will reboot his horror series with Travis Zariwny (Intruder, Scavengers) directing, and shot from the original script used for the 2002 original. The "new" version will star Gage Golightly, Dustin Ingram, Samuel Davis, Matthew Daddario and Nadine Crocker.

So, is Roth unhappy with how the series has turned out, or is this some kind of Gus Van Sant Pshycho thing? Either way, it's interesting. Usua [Continued ...] »
