Exclusive Interview: Director Tom Green Talks Monsters: Dark Continent

16 hours ago

Before he helmed 2014's Godzilla, Gareth Edwards wrote and directed the 2010 cult film, Monsters. A character-driven love story with its titular alien entities effectively placed in the background for most of the movie's runtime, Monsters takes a unique approach to the creature feature subgenre, as does its sequel, Monsters: Dark Continent. With the follow-up film to Monsters now out in theaters and available on VOD from RADiUS, we had a chance to talk with the movie's co-writer and director, Tom Green, who discussed shooting in the Jordanian desert, realistically portraying military life, the large potential of the Monsters franchise, and much more.

Reminiscent of real life recent events (minus the creatures), Monsters: Dark Continent follows an American Army unit fighting both humans and monsters in the sands of the Middle East. The result is a gut-punch of a picture that unflinchingly explores the horrors of combat, the haunting psychological effects of war, »

Drive-In Dust Offs: Dead & Buried

17 April 2015 5:08 PM, PDT

1981 was an amazing year for horror. An American Werewolf in London. The Beyond. The Evil Dead. The Funhouse. The Howling. The list goes on and on. However, one that always seems to fall through the cracks of time and memory is Dead & Buried.

Released in May 1981, Dead & Buried did not set any box office records. This is due to the fact that it is very hard to categorize. Is it a slasher ala Friday the 13th Part 2? No, but there are some gruesome and realistic deaths courtesy of late effects whiz Stan Winston. Is it a monster movie like The Howling? Not exactly, but the movie involves transformations (of a sort). Is there a mystery to solve? Definitely, and this is what drives the story forward and through the disparate elements at play.

60’s and 70’s TV survivor James Farentino stars as Dan Gillis, Sheriff of the seaside town of Potter’s Bluff. »

Dominic Cooper to Star as Jesse Custer in AMC’s Preacher Series Pilot

17 April 2015 1:21 PM, PDT

With the white collar around his neck, you might think he's a man who follows God's word, but when he's melded with the otherworldly entity known as Genesis and God abandons his throne, Jesse focuses his attention on hunting down the big guy from upstairs. Since its first publication run from 1995 – 2000, readers have embraced the dark humor, thought-provoking writing, and visceral violence of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's Preacher comic book series, and with AMC's Preacher series pilot, Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and Sam Catlin are looking to bring that paneled page magic to the small screen. Following the casting of numerous key supporting characters, the lead role of Jesse Custer has been cast.

Seth Rogen announced via Twitter today that Dominic Cooper (Captain America: The First Avenger, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, Dracula Untold) has been cast in the lead role of Jesse Custer in AMC's Preacher series pilot. »

Exclusive: The Pyramid Clip and Q&A with Director Grégory Levasseur

17 April 2015 9:08 AM, PDT

Late last year, moviegoers followed Dr. Holden and his collegues into the ancient corridors of a cursed tomb in Grégory Levasseur's The Pyramid, now available to watch on Digital HD from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment, with a Blu-ray and DVD release slated for May 5th. With viewers now able to explore the creepy confines of The Pyramid from the comfort of their couches, we caught up with Levasseur to discuss intertwining horror with Ancient Egyptian culture, revisiting The Hills Have Eyes shooting location, filming in tight spaces, and much more.

Thank you very much for taking the time to talk with us, Grégory. Ancient Egyptian culture is interwoven throughout The Pyramid and plays a big role in the onscreen scares. Were you interested in that era of history prior to directing the film?

Grégory Levasseur: I'm interested in history in general, but my Egyptian knowledges were pretty limited, »

John Carpenter’s music could be listed as a cast member in his films, as they are like another character, superbly complimenting the dialogue and actions of the main players.

The nine tracks on Carpenter's upcoming Lost Themes record, however, don't come from iconic films, »

Watch The Gallows Teaser Trailer

16 April 2015 3:44 PM, PDT

Born from a craftily conjured low-budget trailer, Chris Lofing and Travis Cluff's found footage horror project, The Gallows, will get a wide theatrical release from Warner Bros. Pictures this summer. Bathed in red light and bolstered by unnerving murmurs, the film's first teaser showcases throat-tightening scares and a menacing presence.

A Blumhouse film from Warner Bros. Pictures, The Gallows hits theaters on July 10th. Written and directed by Chris Lofing and Travis Cluff, The Gallows stars Cassidy Gifford, Ryan Shoos, Reese Mishler, and Pfeifer Brown.

"Twenty years after an accident caused the death of the lead actor during a high school play, students at the same small town school resurrect the failed stage production in a misguided attempt to honor the anniversary of the tragedy—but ultimately find out that some things are better left alone."

Review: Unfriended

16 April 2015 2:15 PM, PDT

Tapping into the dangers of evolving technology and how detrimental social media can be when used for bullying is Unfriended. The surprisingly intense cyber-thriller follows a group of friends on the one-year anniversary of the suicide of one of their classmates who took her life after being relentlessly tormented after an embarrassing video of her was released online. As they begin Skyping with each other and immersing in the usual nonsensical teenage drama and chit-chat, something sinister has joined in on the fun and wants to play a deadly game where whoever loses will pay the ultimate price.

Unfriended is completely contained within the computer screen of Blaire (Shelly Hennig), the longtime friend of suicide victim Laura Barns, an approach from writer Nelson Greaves and director Levan Gabriadze that adds a nice level of realism to the overall story. By allowing viewers to feel like they’re immersed inside of »

Blu-ray Review: Carrie (2002) / The Rage: Carrie 2

16 April 2015 9:17 AM, PDT

Could anyone have guessed when Stephen King published his first novel Carrie in 1974 that it would spawn no fewer than four big screen adaptations? Brian De Palma’s 1976 version remains the first and best, but each subsequent filmmaker who comes at the material seeks to find something new and unexplored in King’s book. Of the two remakes and one sequel released in the last 16 years, only one movie has succeeded in being different enough to justify its own existence. It’s The Rage: Carrie 2, and it’s being packaged with the 2002 made-for-tv remake on a new double feature Blu-ray from Scream Factory.

By now you already know the story of Carrie White, a shy and awkward teenage girl raised by a religious zealot mother and possessing some major telekinetic abilities. When some kids at school decide play a big, bloody prank on her the prom, Carrie retaliates with »
