Love them or hate them, everyone always ends up watching a scary movie. It can be a romantic date that turns into a gory bloody end, a supernatural ghost dragging someone’s best friend into the closest, a rage infected maniac chasing a half comatose guy with a bad haircut up a flight of endless stairs, a girlfriend that you discover is a flesh eating vampire or a film crew locked in an apartment block with zombies breaking in door by door.
I personally love going to the cinema getting spooked out my wits then going home and realising I now have to sleep with the lights on and freaking out when my TV makes that weird banging sound. Lying in bed and regretting every hour the clocks ticks away, but in the end love them or hate them no one can ever get enough of those terrifying moments in movies. »

NBC has acquired 13-episode drama series Siberia, from Sierra/Engine Television and producer Michael Ohoven from Infinity Media. The mystery drama will premiere on July 1 and air in the Monday 10 Pm slot. Siberia is set in the remote Siberian territory of Tunguska, location of the largest impact event on Earth, the massive 1908 explosion, believed to have been caused by a meteoroid or comet, which knocked down some 80 million trees over an area of 830 square miles. More than 100 years later, 16 reality-show contestants descend on Tunguska unknowing of the land’s mysterious past. When a contestant is badly injured and no help arrives the contestants realize that the strange occurrences are not part of the show. With their safety threatened, competing contestants must band together in an effort to survive. The series, said to be in the vein of The Blair Witch Project, is wrapping production. It was unveiled at the recent Miptv by Sierra/Engine, »

Director: Peter Winther. Writer: Michael Vickerman. Cast: Devon Werkheiser, Nicole Forester, Caitlin Carmichael, Diana Hopper and Cassie Keller. The Wicked is a horror title set for release through Image Entertainment. This direct-to-home video film focuses on urban legends and witchcraft. Apparently, Ladeanne Larene, the witch, has been killing kids near Bogie Lake for sometime. And, several local youths are barely up to the task of stopping her. Well shot and acted, The Wicked does not add much excitement to the witch horror genre. And, there have been a few witch stories to set the pace in this genre. The Craft (1996) was a film that brought teen angst to the screen. This film had a compelling edge, with compelling performances. The Blair Witch Project (1999) was another film that stands out in this sub-genre. Directors Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sanchez's film was successful for not showing much of the horror onscreen. »

The anthology horror movie V/H/S debuted at Sundance last year to brilliant early reviews, and almost a year later to the day, the anthology sequel, V/H/S/2, returned to Utah to equally promising praise.
The film has continued on the festival circuit in recent weeks, and with only a few more to go before its early VOD release, ahead of its theatrical rollout, Magnet have debuted the terrific and very red-band first trailer online.
Searching for a missing student, two private investigators break into his abandoned house and find another collection of mysterious VHS tapes. In viewing the horrific contents of each cassette, they realize there may be terrifying motives behind the student’s disappearance.

Viva la película de terror antología!
Is that right? After five years of Spanish throughout high school, I still just went to Google Translate for that shit. But anyway, for those who don’t understand my (probably gibberish) Spanish, it (most likely doesn’t) means “Long live the horror anthology!” Why am I so excited? Well, partially because I didn’t think this craze would actually stay strong in today’s horror world, and partially because V/H/S/2 proves the concept is only producing better and better content. V/H/S and The ABCs Of Death tested the waters, wetted viewers whistles, but V/H/S/2 took the concept to extremely more brutal places knowing the market for over-the-top horror is salivating over original content these days – something I pray the newly announced sequel to The ABCs Of Death tackles even more ferociously.
I was elated to see that »

Found footage has become something of a staple within the horror genre over the past few years, and now audiences are crying out for something more than just one long film using this style. They want anthologies as well, the piecing together of lots of different styles and subject matter all presented in a single film. This was especially the case with 2012's V/H/S, which used the story of a group of criminals having to steal a tape from a house, but unsure as to which one they were meant to acquire, they had to watch a series of shorts, each directed by a different horror director.
Whilst personally I was not a fan of the first instalment, someone has felt that the world needs a sequel, and below is the trailer for this offering, V/H/S/2, which features the directing talents of Simon Barrett (A Horrible Way to Die »

When “V/H/S” came out last year, reaction was… mixed, to put it lightly. Like most anthology films, it was wildly uneven. But it seems the concept is just too irresistible for other filmmakers to resist and thus, we have “V/H/S 2.” Originally titled “S-v/H/S”, the sequel premiered at Sundance this past January to a much more positive reception than the first (read our review). Now a red band trailer has just been posted online over at Yahoo and there’s only one way to describe it: utter mayhem. Like the first one, “V/H/S 2” is a collection of found footage short films all from different directors. Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett are the only holdovers from “V/H/S,” with the rest including Eduardo Sanchez and Gregg Hale (the former of whom birthed the found footage horror genre with “The Blair Witch Project”), Gareth Evans (“The Raid”), Timo Tjahjanto, »
