According to The Hollywood Reporter, recent Emmy nominee Thomas Middleditch has signed on to join Keanu Reeves in an upcoming sci-fi thriller. The movie is called Replicas, and it stars Reeves as a guy who becomes obsessed with bringing his family back to life after they’re all killed in a car accident. Alice Eve is reportedly set to play the dead wife, though she presumably comes back in some kind of scary fashion—otherwise this would be more of a tragic drama than a sci-fi thriller. Also, the way the family comes back has to involve science and not just Pet Sematary magic, otherwise this would be a horror thriller. Anyway, we don’t know who Middleditch will be playing, but given his experience on the Comedy Bang Bang podcast, we’re hoping he’ll be a kid detective investigating the big car accident.
Replicas is being directed by »

Across her diverse filmography, Blake Lively has hung tough against the menaces of gun-toting criminals (The Town, Hick, Savages), mean rich teens (Gossip Girl), aging (The Age of Adaline), moving away from your friends (the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants films), and being in Green Lantern (Green Lantern). Yet her latest project — the watery survival flick The Shallows — will pit the actress against her deadliest foe yet. After a surfing incident strands the starlet on a solitary outcropping of rock, a hungry shark encircles her as the tide rises. Teen soap opera alumna vs. »
Sometimes in horror, a giant creature will do. It takes us back to a simpler time, I think. A time when an oversized spider, or a massive lizard sparked shuttered eyes at the Drive-In or local theatre. It feels almost like a cleansing; a reset of the scare-o-meter back to the innocent levels of the Saturday matinee. And if you were a kid in the ‘70s, Bert I. Gordon’s The Food of the Gods (1976) fit the bill nicely.
Released in June by Aip stateside, and then rolled out across the world in ’77, Food brought in $1 million at the gate (good revenue by Aip standards) and the reviews were, not surprisingly, as low grade as the budget. But hey, legendary schlockmeister Gordon did not survive the biz on good copy. And what kind of reviews would you expect from a movie that features giant chickens, gargantuan rats, and Marjoe Gortner? »

As haunting and macabre as when it was first released in the spring of 1989, Mary Lambert’s Pet Sematary is fondly remembered for being one of the more faithful and rich screen adaptations of a Stephen King novel. (A documentary on the film’s production, Unearthed & Untold: The Path to Pet Sematary, is to be released later this year.) The story of a nuclear family who move to small-town Maine and, through a series of unfortunate events (i.e. the death of a beloved feline), discover an ancient Indian burial ground that brings the dead back to life, Pet Sematary’s playfully dark twist stems from reincarnation […] »

Not all horror movies are going to be crowd pleasers. Pet Sematary, Who Can Kill a Child, The Boy, The Devil’s Backbone, It – the reason why all of these movies are so uncomfortable is because they all deal with a very taboo subject, one that can be considered forbidden territory, even in a horror […] »

Since any New York cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm. If you have a chance to attend any of these, we’re of the mind that it’s time extremely well-spent.
It’s a very De Palma weekend, with Dressed to Kill showing this Friday, Scarface and Blow Out on Saturday, and The Fury this Sunday.
Looney Tunes: Back In Action screens on Saturday.
Underground New York filmmaker Beth B. is celebrated in a weekend-long retrospective.
A new 16mm print of Kapauku plays on Sunday.

The scariest thing about the trailer for Stranger Things, Netflix’s upcoming horror show set in the 80s, isn’t the panelled walls, the period wardrobe atrocities, or even Winona Ryder’s frightfully messy wig. No, it’s the font. Those bold red blocks are reminiscent of the scariest Stephen King novels, titles like Pet Sematary that used to stare out from bookshelves like they could put a curse on you.

I first saw Pet Sematary (no, that’s not a mispell) in the same way that I saw a lot of the big, essential genre/horror movies for the first time: on the Saturday night double-bill on Space, the Canadian sci-fi channel. I can’t even count how many Saturday nights I spent glued to the TV, watching schlock and classics (and classics of schlock) and having my tastes as a film geek molded in ways I’m still discovering. I’m not sure I’ve actually ever gone back and revisited that, despite having a copy that I got as a birthday present, but I’m thinking now might be the time. A new documentary is on its way, the latest in what seems like a trend of genre film docs chronicling the stories behind the mainstays of sci-fi and horror.

In 2011, we ventured to northern Maine to see some of the filming locations for the 1989 cult horror classic “Pet Sematary,” the movie adaptation of Stephen King‘s 1983 novel about animals that come back from the dead, which Mary Lambert directed from King’s own screenplay. As lifelong King and horror film fans, this particular trip represented a kind of pilgrimage for us. We knew the drive would be long (well over five hours just to get there), but we knew it would be worth it. Prior to reaching Maine, we had no ambitions other than to find the locations and. »

Terror Films has released the documentary Unearthed & Untold: The Path to Pet Sematary. The film was released on April 21st. The film celebrates the 27th Anniversary release of the groundbreaking horror film Pet Sematary (1989). This documentary looks at the path the film took in production and afterwards. The documentary is available now, at the Terror Films website. And, the release trailer and poster art are hosted here. Documentarians John Campopiano and Justin White took five years to develop the film. They say of their filmmaking journey: “when we first set out for Maine nearly six years ago we thought, at most, we would take some photographs of the filming locations from Stephen King's Pet Sematary and post them to social media. But upon that very first visit we knew that we had stumbled upon something special -- stories, people, and places." Those stories are now available in Unearthed & Untold: The Path to Pet Sematary, »

The Other Side of the Door, 2016.
Directed by Johannes Roberts.
After her young son is killed in a tragic accident, a woman learns of a ritual which will bring him back to say goodbye, but when she disobeys a sacred warning, she upsets the balance between life and death.
The Other Side of the Door feels like a vanity project for its producer Alexandre Aja, the French director most known for horror cult classics such as High Tension and The Hills Have Eyes. Aja has been fighting to get a remake of the already once adapted Stephen King beloved novel Pet Sematary off the ground. The latest piece of news to have surfaced is from 2011, meaning as of right now it is dead or in development hell, so attaching himself to this little project was, in his perspective, »
