Eric Bana Up For Sinister Director's Beware The Night

12 November 2012 10:23 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Together screenwriters Scott Derrickson and Paul Harris Boardman have burned a path of terror, penning one scary feature after another, from Urban Legends: Final Cut to Hellraiser: Inferno and The Exorcism of Emily Rose. And while the pair have been branching out with Boardman taking screenwriting jobs elsewhere, and Derrickson teaming up with C. Robert Cargill for the recently released Sinister, their latest collaboration is gearing up, and will delve deeper into the strange subgenre of supernatural crime thriller that seems to attract them both. Titled Beware the Night, this paranormal thriller centers on a New York cop charged with tackling cases of "real life demon possessions, exorcisms and werewolves." The Wrap reports Screen Gems is currently considering backing the production, which just got more enticing with word that Eric Bana is in talks to star. Notably, Mark Wahlberg was previously eyed for the role, but no mention is made »

Sinister – The Review

14 October 2012 6:11 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

It pains me to say this, but truly scary, well-made horror films being released in theaters are few and far between these days. Such films being released during the holy horror month of October — oddly — are even more scarce. Fortunately, we have writer C. Robert Cargill‘s frightening film to thank, inspired by the persistent image of a family hanging dead from an old tree, which haunted his dreams until the day he wrote the screenplay… or, perhaps it still does.

Sinister is Cargill’s first feature screenplay and is directed by Scott Derrickson (Hellraiser: Inferno). The film stars an unlikely, but familiar face in Ethan Hawke (Daybreakers), an actor not known for showing up in horror films. Regardless, Hawke still delivers the same caliber of performance we’re used to seeing in his dramatic roles, playing Ellison Oswalt, a once famous now struggling writer of true crime novels.

12 October 2012 12:54 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Sinister is the latest supernatural horror-thriller from filmmaker Scott Derrickson (Hellraiser: Inferno, The Exorcism of Emily Rose) and produced by Jason Blum (Paranormal Activity, Insidious), which opens in theaters today (read our Sinister review).

The film stars Ethan Hawke as an ambitious true-crime novelist who moves his family to a house where the previous occupants were mysteriously murdered some nine months before, in hopes that it will inspire him to create a new book. When he discovers home footage that reveals the truth behind their deaths, it puts his loved ones on a collision course with a malicious supernatural entity.

We had a chance to sit down and talk with Hawke about Sinister. The conversation covered such topics as what drew him to the script written by C. Robert Cargill, as well as his admiration of Derrickson’s Exorcism of Emily Rose (and ...

Paul Boardman Will Adapt James Patterson’s ‘Guilty Wives’

7 September 2012 7:30 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Paul Boardman has been tapped to write a film adaptation of Guilty Wives, based on the book by James Patterson and David Ellis.

Here’s the synopsis from Barnes and Noble:

Only minutes after Abbie Elliot and her three best friends step off of a private helicopter, they enter the most luxurious, sumptuous, sensually pampering hotel they have ever been to. Their lavish presidential suite overlooks Monte Carlo, and they surrender: to the sun and pool, to the sashimi and sake, to the Bruno Paillard champagne. For four days they’re free to live someone else’s life. As the weekend moves into pulsating discos, high-stakes casinos, and beyond, Abbie is transported to the greatest pleasure and release she has ever known.

What happened last night?

In the morning’s harsh light, Abbie awakens on a yacht, surrounded by police. Something awful has happened–something impossible, unthinkable. Abbie, Winnie, Serena, »

Ethan Hawke Watches Creepy Movies in the ‘Sinister’ Trailer

14 June 2012 6:38 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Following an overabundance of found-footage horror films flooding theaters over the past few years, recent scary movies have attempted to find clever variations on the sub-genre. Those approaches include: merely aping the look of a faux documentary (Chernobyl Diaries), incorporating more straight sci-fi elements into the mix (Area 407) – and using recovered footage of horrible events as a pivotal plot point, as is the case with the upcoming horror-thriller, Sinister.

Today, we have an official trailer from Sinister to show. The film marks the latest venture into the supernatural horror realm by writer/director Scott Derrickson, who started his career off by working on sub-par sequels like Urban Legends: Final Cut and the direct-to-video Hellraiser: Inferno. Since then, Derrickson has gone on to achieve more financial success (if limited critical success) with movies such as The ...

Ethan Hawke Uncovers Something ‘Sinister’ In New Trailer

14 June 2012 5:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Upcoming horror Sinister recently debuted a terrific blood-covered poster, and today Thn has the new trailer for the Scott Derrickson-written/directed feature. Derrickson began his career with straight-to-video (remember them!) schlock sequel Hellraiser: Inferno, but made a name for himself with fact-based courtroom drama/thriller The Exorcism Of Emily Of Rose. A lukewarm blockbuster remake of sci-fi classic The Day The Earth Stood Still followed, before he undertook this latest foray into fear, Sinister.

Ethan Hawke headlines as true-crime novelist Ellison, who uncovers ‘found footage’ of a family massacred in his new home. These secrets put him and his family on a dangerous collision course with a powerful and terrifying supernatural entity. The film co-stars Vincent D’Onofrio, Juliet Rylance and Claire Foley. Coincidently Derrickson is also slated to pen the script for the recently announced Poltergeist remake as well as the true story Devil’S Knot, which we gave new casting details of, »

Lionsgate will bring a new supernatural spine tingle to the masses on October 5th.

Gearing up for the seasonal release, the good folks at Lionsgate are rolling out a couple bad ass posters that are sure to snag the attention of genre fans. Scott Derrickson, who wrote and directed the popular The Exorcism of Emily Rose as well as Hellraiser: Inferno will spearhead Sinister; again tackling writing and directorial duties. Ethan Hawke (Taking Lives, Daybreakers), Vincent D'Onofrio (The Cell, Chained), James Ransone (Prom Night, Jericho), Juliet Rylance (Animal) and Fred Dalton Thompson (Cape Fear, Die Hard 2) round out the picture’s focal cast. »

New Sinister Posters Online

30 May 2012 5:01 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Continuing a recent trend for horror movie posters featuring girls against crumbling white walls, here's a new poster for Scott Derrickson's Sinister, starring Ethan Hawke. You have your choice of the static version below, or one of those newfangled motion posters. Either way, it's kinda bloody.The film takes the old cynical-writer-meets-supernatural-mystery angle (think 1408, and plenty of others) with Hawke as a true-crime hack who moves into a house that was the site of an entire family's gruesome murder. He then discovers a box of films of other murders stowed in his charming new crib, and finds his ongoing investigation leading into paranormal territory and his own family in some serious danger. The entity revealed on the wall there is apparently referred to as Mr Boogie. We doubt that's a dance thing, somehow.Derrickson cut his teeth on franchise sequels like Hellraiser: Inferno and Urban Legends: Final Cut, before »

10 persistent horror franchises

10 January 2012 8:58 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

They may run out of ideas or slip into absurdity, but horror franchises never truly end. Here’s a selection of a few of the most persistent…

In the horror genre, death is never the end. It’s true of its seemingly indestructible antagonists, and it’s frequently true of the movies in which they appear – it’s highly unusual for a lucrative horror series to ever truly end, even if the title claims that what you’ve paid to see really is the final instalment.

To this end, here are 10 horror franchises that, no matter how many times they appear to have run out of ways of killing people, still keep coming back from the grave. And because horror sequels so frequently play around with time, we’ll approach this particular list in no particular order, starting with a gore-laden hit in glorious 3D…
