Blumhouse has always been a studio that I have been wary on. I’m not the hugest fan of the Paranormal Activity franchise, with the exception of Paranormal Activity 3. The Purge films are ok for what they are but I guess the highest ranking films from the company would be Insidious and Sinister. Unless, you want to count Whiplash – which could be conceived as a psychological horror film. Regardless, I’m glad there is a studio doing what Blumhouse does.
The Gallows documents a group of teenagers who sneak into the school at night to sabotage a stage play of the same name that has a tragic past. As you could probably guess, the stage play has a noose in it and the tragedy would be a kid was accidentally killed during the production back in 1993. For some stupid reason, the school and the drama teacher allow a new »

Horror filmmakers have a special fondness for shedding teenage blood.
After all, teens are horror's primary audience, so it's especially frightening -- and cathartic -- to see teens like themselves targeted by deadly evil, often just for behaving like normal adolescents. In the last four decades, movies about teens targeted by slashers have become the mainstay of movie horror.
With "The Gallows" hitting theaters this Friday -- a teen horror movie with echoes of "Carrie," "Prom Night," "I Know What You Did Last Summer," and more -- it's worth looking back at some of the most celebrated teen horror movies of all time. Just remember, don't separate from the group, and don't have sex.

Anyone remember Party of Five? Exactly the same as Dawson’s Creek but without those homely qualities of a Katie Holmes or Michelle Williams. It aired on Channel Four in the Nineties, convincing Miramax producers that casting Neve Campbell in Scream was a good idea. Providing her with a means to pay the mortgage for twenty years and three subsequent sequels.
Initially championed by Wes Craven maker of original Nightmares on Elm Street. Scream was touted as a revisionist reinvention. That most post-modern of commodities known as the tongue in cheek slasher movie. A nudge, nudge, wink, wink wake up call for an outdated genre. Written by Kevin Williamson who went on to pen The Faculty for Robert Rodriguez, Scream is still heralded as a benchmark today. Spawning numerous copycat flicks including I Know What You Did Last Summer, »

Now this is one sexy couple! Sarah Michelle Gellar took to Instagram on Thursday to share a super sweet throwback shot with hubby Freddie Prinze Jr. In the photo, the "I Know What You Did Last Summer" costars pose in front of a gorgeous infinity pool overlooking the ocean. Freddie's flaunting his chiseled chest while only wearing swim trunks and Sarah's showing off her hot bikini bod in a pink swimsuit and matching sarong. "My #Tbt is going way back #BodyBeforeBaby I wouldn't trade my kids for anything, but once in a while it's ok to be envious of what you used to look like. #Goals #Dreaming This also reminds me...I need a vacation," the 38-year-old captioned the vintage snap. The former teen hearthrobs tied the knot in 2002, after starring together on the '97 horror flick. Today, Sarah and Freddie have two adorable children together, Charlotte Grace Prinze and Rocky James Prinze. »

It’s 13 years since Eli Roth made his debut with the grisly, inventive virus thriller Cabin Fever. And despite only directing four other full features since then — the latest of which, Knock Knock, is about to be released on June 26th — he’s made an indelible mark, a gory, bloody mark, on American horror cinema.
He’s one of that rare breed of directors, like a Scorsese or a Tarantino or a Hitchcock, that you know what they look and sound like. That aren’t just names behind a camera, but faces in other people’s movies, chat show guests, and have celebrity other halves. It doesn’t always mean that they are a great filmmaker, but it usually means that they are far more than just a person with technical skill. »

There is a perfectly good reason why film reviews exist folks, and that is to fish out golden works of filmmaking. Like fishing, you do tend to find bits of trash like empty tins and bottles. Killer Mermaids is certainly that kind of film title (c’mon, mermaids that kill!) that hooks your attention, but turns out to be a disappointing find.
It shouldn’t be ignored that this is actually part of film history, as it is Serbia’s first-ever creature feature to be made. Director Milan Todorovic also made the first Serbian zombie film, Zone of the Dead in 2009, which did not get good reviews at the time of its release. Not the best start for Serbian film, but its an achievement nonetheless – a starting point to get better…then they made Killer Mermaids! »

Where would the horror genre be without Leigh Whannell? It may not be a question many ask themselves, but pre-Saw the horror genre was more than a little stagnant. Sure there was that small burst during the late nineties thanks to Kevin Williamson’s scripts for both Scream and I Know what you did Last Summer, but what followed was nothing but cheap rip-offs.
Then in 2004 Leigh Whannell and James Wan came along with Saw. The movie was a horror film like no other, feeling much more like a dectective movie such as Seven than the kind of horror we were used to. The film spawned six sequels of varying success with Whannell and Wan involved in some but not all.
Instead the pair focussed on bringing another long forgotten subset of the horror genre back to life – the haunted house/possession tale. With Insidious audiences got an eerie »

PS4 exclusive scare ‘em up, Until Dawn, will be released on Tuesday August 25th in the Us, with the European release following a few days later on the 28th. Little has been revealed regarding Supermassive Games’ PS4 exclusive lately, but PlayStation Blog has today dropped the release dates, as well as a few more juicy pieces of information.
Most exciting (for me, anyway) is the news that Peter Stormare has officially joined the cast for the game. You might remember Mr. Stormare from his roles in Jurassic Park: The Lost World (he was a bad guy), Fargo (he was a bad guy), Arrow (he was a bad guy), and The Big Lebowski (he was a nihilist, and they don’t care about anything). One of the great character actors of our time, Peter Stormare will surely be an interesting addition to the cast. And probably a bad guy. Featuring »

Ryan Phillippe is fondly remembered for his roles in '90s films like Cruel Intentions, I Know What You Did Last Summer, and 54 - all of which likely shaped your adolescence - but it's worth noting that the 40-year-old actor, father, and philanthropist is still insanely hot. He may actually be hotter than ever. Ryan recently returned to the small screen in the ABC drama Secrets & Lies, and gave us lots of proof that he's just as sexy as he was two decades ago. He's still got the bad boy thing going, but now with a sweet "cool dad" vibe - and don't even get us started on how amazing he looks sans shirt. Your teenage crush Ryan Phillippe is still very, very attractive, and we've rounded up 32 recent photos that show all the different types of swag that he has. Keep reading to see them all now. »

New Line Cinema and Blumhouse Productions (Paranormal Activity, Insidious) have finally released a teaser trailer for their high school horror pic The Gallows. The film comes from writers/directors Chris Lofing and Travis Cluff.
Starring Cassidy Gifford, Ryan Shoos, Reese Mishler and Pfeifer Brown, The Gallows takes place 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. It's been said that the pic is something in the same vein as I Know What You Did Last Summer.
The teaser doesn't offer much. All we see is a girl, crying of terror, covered in blood. The movie opens July 10. Here's the trailer:

In the realm of post-"Scream" teen slasher flicks, "I Know What You Did Last Summer" isn't terrible. Which isn't the same as saying it's good! Because, objectively, "Ikwydls" is not a "good" movie. In fact, it's a pretty dumb one. But I'll be damned if I haven't watched it at least seven or eight times, and that's mostly thanks to Sarah Michelle Gellar's oddly compelling performance as Southport, North Carolina's doomed resident "Croaker Queen" Helen Shivers. Here's how old I am: I saw "Ikwydls" in theaters. The year was 1997, and I was...12? 14? Let's go with 14 (for now). We were in the midst of a horror "revolution," which is to say: one good movie came out ("Scream"), that movie became a giant sleeper hit, and Hollywood just kept making lesser versions of that movie over and over again until it stopped working for them.
