Sacred Bones Records has unveiled the music video for John Carpenter's "Night", a track from his Lost Themes record that's now available. Also featured in our latest round-up is Detroit Zombie Apocalypse III, this weekend's zombie-themed fundraiser for The Walking Hope cancer charity, as well as details on Diamond Select Toys' interactive appearances at Chicago's C2E2 later this month.
John Carpenter Music Video: It followed Laurie Strode as she was hunted by Michael Myers, rode with Christine as the flaming 1958 Plymouth Fury mercilessly pursued Buddy Repperton down a dark stretch of asphalt, and accompanied Jack Burton and his pals on their rescue mission in Lo Pan's lair. 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, »

Creepy children pestering a non-creepy, innocent child. Check.
Kids watching a public domain horror film, in this case, Night of the Living Dead. Check.Creepy home movies. Check.
Yep, this trailer feels too safe to me. While I liked director Ciarán Foy‘s previous film, Citadel, and I dug Sinister, this trailer just feels like it showcases all the typical attributes of a sequel that is made as a product to sell as opposed to a true geniune sequel. Then again, I haven’t seen the film so I shouldn’t pass judgment. I do know that I’ll be in the theater checking this one out regardless of what I hear.
Sinister 2 will be released August 21 in theaters everywhere. Sound off: What did you think of the trailer?

The 2012 horror hit Sinister's getting a sequel - and here's the first full trailer to prove it...
The previous film was about an unsavoury crime writer (Hawke) who became obsessed with some gory 8mm film footage he finds in his attic. Oh, and there was the small detail he'd neglected to tell his family: the house he'd moved them into was the scene of some hideous murders a few years before.
The sequel, directed by Ciaran Foy and written by Derrickson and C Robert Cargill, appears to tell its story from a child's perspective, as the spooky tapes and shadowy figures from the original Sinister make a reappearance in another family home. You can see the first full trailer below, which kicks off »
Buhguul and his legion of young, undead followers have moved on from the Oswalt household to haunt the halls of another family's abode in Sinister 2. Their malevolent presence is shown in a new trailer for the horror movie sequel (featuring a scene excerpt from George A. Romero's Night of the Living Dead) that's due out in theaters on August 21st.
"The sequel to the 2012 sleeper hit horror movie. In the aftermath of the shocking events in “Sinister,” a protective mother (Shannyn Sossamon of “Wayward Pines”) and her 9-year-old twin sons (real-life twins Robert and Dartanian Sloan) find themselves in a rural house marked for death as the evil spirit of Buhguul continues to spread with frightening intensity."
Directed by Ciaran Foy (Citadel) from a screenplay co-penned by Scott Derrickson and C. Robert Cargill (the pair that scribed the original Sinister), Sinister 2 hits theaters on August 21st. In addition to Sossamon, »

Buhguul targets a pair of twins as Sinister 2 seems to further exploit the fears that what we watch might affect us in terrible ways. The full trailer for Sinister 2 opens with a clip from Night of the Living Dead, the excerpt in which young Karen Cooper attacks her parents. The movie is turned…

Some horror movies go with a "slow-build" approach, and some go for the jugular right off the bat. The unexpected horror hit "It Follows" definitely falls into the latter category, as you can see in the opening scene embedded below (narrated by director David Robert Mitchell). Are you sufficiently unnerved? Good! That's what we're going for here. As the indie horror hit prepares to expand into over 1,600 theaters this weekend, below I've ranked 18 of the most iconic/frightening horror openings of all time from least to most scary. The result is a completely objective list that will remain set in stone for all eternity. Are you ready? Can you handle it? Countdown starts now... 18. "Night of the Living Dead" (1968) "They're coming to get you, Barbara." While I have no doubt that contemporary audiences covered their eyes in fright during the opening sequence of Romero's original "Night of the Living Dead, »

The Walking Dead, Season 5, Episode 16: “Conquer”
Directed by Greg Nicotero
Airs Sundays at 9pm (Et) on AMC
Long live the Ricktatorship!
Tonight’s episode of The Walking Dead is very reminiscent of M. Night Shyamalan’s The Village. For a long time, Alexandria has been living in blissful ignorance, completely secure in their own laws and doctrines, and thinking that they’re closed off from the scourge of humanity, unaware that eventually humanity creeps into any safe haven one creates. People can put up walls and create illusions of happiness and monotony, but violence will eventually trickle through.
This is evident in the final scenes of the episode, where the trio of human violence far outweighs the violence inflicted by the walkers. Surely the dead are threats, but not as much as what the viewers see with the humans’ ability to self-sabotage. »

Doc of the Dead, 2015.
Directed by Alexandre O. Philippe.
Apparently, this is the definitive documentary examining the rise of the zombie in modern pop culture. Hmm…
Think you know zombies? Of course you do, because no doubt you have seen Shaun of the Dead on one of its weekly showings on some made-for-twentysomethings TV channel or own one of the many DVD releases of Night of the Living Dead that likely includes a documentary or an interview with George A. Romero that covers everything you need to know about that seminal movie and the influence it has had. So what does Doc of the Dead have to offer that several dozen DVD extra features doesn’t? Not a great deal, if truth be told.

When the water supply in an isolated Nigerian slum becomes infected, the neighborhood quickly morphs into a minefield of flesh-eating undead.

Philippe to talk about the documentary, his thoughts on the genre and what’s the worst zombie movie he’s ever seen…
Lo: The film got a great reception at last year’s Film4 FrightFest (read our review here), how has the reception to the movie been for you?
Aop: It’s been great you know. We premiered at SXSW back in March and I’ve been pretty much traveling the world ever since! It’s been pretty non-stop. And the response has been great across the board and it’s been great to share it with fans and audiences around the world. »

For the seven people seeking shelter from the zombies in an isolated farmhouse that hellish night in the late 1960s, it seemed like dawn would never come and the nightmare would never end. But the sun did come up at the end of George A. Romero's classic Night of the Living Dead, killing the night and bringing a sole survivor into another dawn before a gut-wrenching gunshot echoed across the Pennsylvania hills. That's where the story ends in the film, but tales from Romero's zombie-plagued world will continue to be told on the paneled page in three upcoming Ultimate Night of the Living Dead comic book series from Double Take, including one that follows siblings Barbara and Johnny.
