Scream Factory Announces Love at First Bite and Once Bitten Blu-rays

10 hours ago

The vampire sub-genre can be as dark and foreboding as the basement of a Transylvanian castle, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be navigated with a well-lit lantern of laughs. Today, the folks at Scream Factory ushered in October with the announcement that they are bringing the vampire comedies Love at First Bite and Once Bitten to Blu-ray for the first time.

Scream Factory plans to release 1979’s Love at First Bite and 1985’s Once Bitten to Blu-ray sometime around Valentine’s Day 2015, so take note if you’re already looking for date night movies. Extras have yet to be revealed, but based on their solid track record, Scream Factory is likely cooking up some bonus goodies in the cauldron.

Watch the New Trailer for Interstellar

17 hours ago

“Can’t we just let it go?” “This thing needs to learn how to adapt, Murph… like the rest of us.” In Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, people are struggling to survive as Earth slowly dies. Humanity looks to the stars for guidance, sending a group led by Matthew McConaughey’s Cooper into another galaxy to find a new planet for us to populate, and the third trailer for the sci-fi adventure shows waves as tall as mountains.

“With our time on Earth coming to an end, a team of explorers undertakes the most important mission in human history; traveling beyond this galaxy to discover whether mankind has a future among the stars.”

Interstellar has assembled a pretty massive cast that includes Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Casey Affleck, Michael Caine, David Oyelowo, Wes Bentley, John Lithgow, Ellen Burstyn, Topher Grace, David Gyasi, Mackenzie Foy, Bill Irwin, Timothée Chalamet, and Matt Damon. »

New Clip from The Babadook

While horror fans in the Us have to wait until November 27th for The Babadook, those in the UK get to see it on October 24th and we have a new UK clip where Amelia receives a disturbing call.

Writer Selected for Zombieland 2, Ruben Fleischer to Direct

18 hours ago

Just like the macabre monsters they showcase, living dead films don’t die easily in film purgatory. In the wake of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies’ recent reanimation, the long-dormant sequel to Zombieland has awakened, risen, and is now lumbering through the early stages of development, as Sony Pictures has hired a writer to pen the sequel, and a familiar face is set to return to the director’s chair.

Currently referred to as Zombieland 2, the follow-up to 2009’s endearing zom-com is reported by Deadline to be heating up after a long stint on the back burner. Sony recently brought in Dave Callaham to pen the picture and Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer is set to oversee the script’s creation and return at the helm, though an official deal for the director’s chair has yet to be made. Callaham received a story credit for this year’s Godzilla »

Read an Exclusive Excerpt from An English Ghost Story

18 hours ago

For one family in England, a move to a new home in rural Somerset initially brings out the best in their treatment of each other, but the walls housing their newfound harmony have perilous plans in store. The house in Kim Newman’s new novel, An English Ghost Story, is not “home sweet home” material, and readers can experience moving day in the exclusive excerpt provided to us by Titan Books.

“A dysfunctional British nuclear family seek a new life away from the big city in the sleepy Somerset countryside. At first their new home, The Hollow, seems to embrace them, creating a rare peace and harmony within the family. But when the house turns on them, it seems to know just how to hurt them the most – threatening to destroy them from the inside out. A stand-alone novel from acclaimed author Kim Newman.

Review: ABCs of Death 2

30 September 2014 6:46 PM, PDT

When Drafthouse Films released the twisted horror short anthology The ABC’s Of Death two years ago, it was an anarchistic free-for-all where the enlisted filmmakers were all in unknown territory like the wild west. Some of them went for juvenile humor, others wanted to find out how fast they could gross out their audience to the point of puking in the aisles and a couple, like D is for Dogfight and Q is for Quack, that were creative segments that really stood out from the herd.

If this year’s vastly superior sequel has proved one thing, it’s that as long as this franchise continues to grow, there will be hungry filmmakers lined up that not only have a great thirst for cinematic carnage, but will feel determined to obliterate their competition and surpass the quality of their predecessors.

Exclusive Artwork from The Demon’s Rook

30 September 2014 3:25 PM, PDT

It may be new, but Tribeca Film’s The Demon’s Rook looks like a lost flick from the midnight horror heyday of the 1980’s, when you could watch practical effects ooze from the tube late into the night. With The Demon’s Rook now available on VOD platforms, we’ve been provided with exclusive artwork, along with behind-the-scenes photos from the old school-styled, practical effects-laden creature feature.

“I’ve been drawing and painting creatures all my life. Putting them down on paper is the easy part for me, but bringing them into our plane of existence takes a specialized kind of wizardry that took me a while to figure out,” said co-writer/director/star James Sizemore

“We decided early on that we were going to go with the more is more approach to shooting the monsters,” said producer Tim Reis. “James put an astounding amount of detail into the »

“When there’s no more room in hell, the dead will walk the earth.” Zombie fans can watch Ken Foree utter this immortal line on the big screen now that 1978’s Dawn of the Dead is headlining next year’s April Ghouls Drive-In Monster-Rama’s Saturday night lineup. One of our favorite horror events of the year, the movie marathon takes place not far from where George A. Romero filmed his seminal sequel.

Held every year in September and April, the Drive-In Monster-Rama shows eight classic horror movies over two nights on a huge drive-in screen in Vandergrift, Pa’s Riverside Drive In Theatre (mere miles away from the Monroeville Mall, where Romero »

Watch Behind-the-Scenes Footage from Annabelle

30 September 2014 11:09 AM, PDT

The young Forms family thought they moved away from the horror of their past, but they unknowingly packed it with them. A prequel spin-off to The Conjuring, Annabelle hits theaters later this week, and two new B-roll videos show the filming of the Forms’ desperate meeting with Father Perez, the crafting of a classic stormy night atmosphere, setting up a baby carriage / garbage truck collision, and more.

“She terrified you in “The Conjuring,” but this is where it all began for Annabelle.

Capable of unspeakable evil, the actual doll exists locked up in an occult museum in Connecticut—visited only by a priest who blesses her twice a month.

New Line Cinema’s supernatural thriller “Annabelle” begins before the evil was unleashed.

John Form has found the perfect gift for his expectant wife, Mia—a beautiful, rare vintage doll in a pure white wedding dress. But Mia’s delight with Annabelle doesn’t last long. »
