It seems that Kevin Smith has added a little A-list star power to his upcoming low-budget horror flick Tusk, with star Justin Long (Jeepers Creepers) revealing that Johnny Depp (Pirates of the Caribbean) has joined the cast.
According to The Wrap, Depp is “likely playing a French-Canadian inspector who investigates the bizarre case at the centre of the film” – which relates to Long’s character, a podcaster “who finds the story of a lifetime in Mr. Howe (Michael Parks), a worldwide adventurer with amazing tales and a curious penchant for walruses.”
In addition to Long and Red State star Parks, Tusk also features Genesis Rodriquez (The Last Stand) and Haley Joel Osmont (The Sixth Sense), along with Epic Meal Time’s Harley Morenstein. The film is set for release some time this year.

Victor Salva has experienced his highs and lows, spanning a career including Clownhouse, Jeepers Creepers, and some other movies about albinos and such – but just when you thought a trip down Rosewood Lane was the worst Salva could do, he found shelter in Dark House. Personally, I believe Jeepers Creepers was a bit of a lucky victory, as Salva absolutely tries to recreate that same independent horror vibe, but as axe-wielding lunatics run on all fours, chasing our group of house hunting victims, Salva’s latest attempt becomes sillier and sillier. Casting Tobin Bell might bring horror credibility in some circles, but not even Jigsaw could save this ridiculous bit of realty horror – and no, that’s not just because of the house’s price. I guess it’s never a good sign when you can describe a film as a “fixer upper.”

In this exclusive clip from Dark House, the new film from Victor Salva (Jeepers Creepers), five friends are traveling in a van... with no cell phone service... and a stranger appears as if from nowhere. With Victor Salva at the helm, you can be certain that this will turn out less like Scooby-Doo and more like Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
Dark House is a thrilling and horrifying road trip, full of twists and brutal surprises; a suspenseful thriller about a young man and a chilling old house that has survived decades, awaiting the return of its prodigal son… a house that can escalate Nick’s gift to see death before it happens, but holds within its walls the origins of a dark family legacy so horrible it may have already reached out to Nick’s unborn child.
Dark House is currently playing in New York and Los Angeles. It will open »

Dark House (2014) Victor Salva has only directed one movie that I’ve thoroughly enjoyed — that would be “Jeepers Creepers,” in case you’re wondering — which is why I didn’t go into his 2014 effort “Dark House” (aka “Haunted”) with any huge expectations. While the flick isn’t anything overly original or deeply fascinating — a young man discovers that he’s the owner of a creepy old house in the middle of nowhere — it’s certainly a solid way to pass the time while you’re waiting for another motion picture to come along. Salva has put together a nifty little B-movie that hits a fair number of strong chords, assuming you can get past some questionable performances and a ton of wonky scripting. The twist in the third act was a little surprising and enjoyably gory, though it does little to help you forget some of the inherent goofiness found »

The director of the Jeepers Creepers franchise, Victor Salva, has teamed up with Saw's Tobin Bell for Dark House, a tale about a father who travels to a seemingly abandoned mansion in order to learn about his son’s dark psychic gifts.
Instead, Bell’s character, Seth, a mysterious woodsman, leaves them wrapped up in a journey about the true nature of fate.
DC: I know you’ve been interviewed quite a bit in the past by guys like me about your experiences in the horror genre, but I would love to talk about your entire career and your time in New York. How did you first get your start in the business?

Stuffed with straw, dressed in rags and left to twist in the breeze, the typical mild-mannered scarecrow may not be built to frighten anything larger than your average feathered pest... but that hasn't stopped these eerie effigies from coming to life in our nightmares. For generations, this image of the harvest has been associated with the darker, colder days to come, so it wasn't long before spooky tales were being spun about evil scarecrows wandering the fields, intent on reaping something more substantial than corn. Cinematic scarecrows have come a long way since the lovable Wizard of Oz character, but some of them might still be looking for a brain... maybe even the one that's still in your skull. Let's look at some of the all-time scariest movie scarecrows ever to stalk the fields by moonlight... “Bubba” (Dark Night of the Scarecrow, 1981) This chilling made-for-tv classic presents one of the »

Dark House is one nutty horror movie, but what's crazier still is how well it works — until it doesn't.
Nick (an excellent Luke Kleintank), 23, has a psychic power that gives him visions of how certain people will die. Desperate to understand its source, Nick begins an ancestral search that leads him, with his best friend (Anthony Rey Perez) and very pregnant girlfriend (Alex McKenna) in tow, to the deep woods of Mississippi, and a deserted gothic mansion guarded by hunched-over, stringy-haired, ax-wielding ghosts.
The house, by the way, may exist in an alternate dimension, and there appears to be a monster in the walls. Writer-director Victor Salva (Powder, Jeepers Creepers) and his co-writer, newcomer Charles Agron, throw in more plot point »
Stars: Luke Kleintank, Tobin Bell, Alex McKenna, Anthony Rey Perez, Zack Ward, Lacey Anzelc, Ethan S. Smith, Lesley-Anne Down, Charles Agron, Daniel Ross Owens, Max Gail, Patricia Belcher | Written by Victor Salva, Charles Agron | Directed by Victor Salva
As a fan of the Jeepers Creepers movies I’m always interested in what Victor Salva will come up with next, and this can be a good and bad thing. Dark House is his latest movie which he directs and co-wrote the screenplay for and I have to admit that it is an interesting film, if you are a fan of Supernatural or shows like it that focus on a fairly lightweight battle between good and evil. With Tobin Bell starring, Dark House is also is likely to pull in some of the Saw fans too.

We return with another edition of the Indie Spotlight, highlighting recent independent horror news sent our way. Today’s feature includes details on a Wes Craven art exhibition, the first sighting of Megafoot, a 100 zombie films graphical print, first photos from Australian Horror film, Barrow, an interview with actor, writer, and filmmaker Sean Stone, and much more:
The Horror Legacy of Wes Craven Exhibit Details: “Wes Craven has been feeding our collective horror consciousness since 1972, when his first feature, “The Last House on the Left,” debuted. That film was gritty, raw and terrifying, it still causes a guttural reaction some 40 years later. In his career, Wes has created some of the most memorable moments in horror cinema, from the torture scene in “The Serpent and the Rainbow,” to the Johnny Depp’s explosive scene in “A Nightmare on Elm Street,” to the first glimpse of Michael Berryman’s savagery in “The Hills Have Eyes. »

From the director of Jeepers Creepers comes Dark House, a terrifying new suspense thriller about a young man and a chilling old house that has survived for decades, waiting for the return of his prodigal son. A house that can escalate Nick's gift of being able to see someone's death before it happens and that preserves within its walls the origins of a dark and horrible family tradition. Below we have the trailer for Dark House. Dark House stars… »
Talk about a swinging good time. An ax swinging good time, anyway, heh. Check out the first trailer for “Powder” and “Jeepers Creepers” director Victor Salva’s latest, “Dark House.” Personally I’m still waiting for “Jeepers Creepers 3.” I don’t know what it is about that series, but I really like it. The third movie has been announced seemingly ages ago, but apparently Salva has been working on other films first, like “Dark House.” Not sure why, since I would imagine “Jeepers Creepers” is where the money is, being an established horror franchise and all. Dark House is a thrilling and horrifying road trip, full of twists and brutal surprises; a suspenseful thriller about a young man and a chilling old house that has survived decades, awaiting the return of its prodigal son… a house that can escalate Nick’s gift to see death before it happens, but holds »
Here's a trailer for a new horror thriller coming out called Dark House. It stars Tobin Bell (Saw) and it was directed Victor Salva. The director has made some decent film in his career such as Jeepers Creepers, Clownhouse, and even the movie Powder. I liked the Jeepers Creepers films, but this new film doesn't look like it lives up to his past work. I enjoy watching all kinds of horror films, so I'll definitely give the movie a chance though.
The story is described as "a thrilling and horrifying road trip, full of twists and brutal surprises; a suspenseful thriller about a young man and a chilling old house that has survived decades, awaiting the return of its prodigal son... a house that can escalate Nick's gift to see death before it happens, but holds within its walls the origins of a dark family legacy so horrible it may »

It might not sound like much of a compliment to compare an independent horror movie to the long-running TV series Supernatural -- but it's not meant as an insult either. The certifiably strange new horror flick Dark House throws all sorts of old-fashioned genre tropes into a blender, including a few ingredients it they probably didn't need, and tops itself off with some new-fangled gore, gristle, and occult-style mayhem. Basically there's a lot going on in Victor Salva's Dark House, and at least 70% of it is fun stuff.
It's the old Jeepers Creepers director back with another scary tale, and while a good portion of Dark House feels like the second episode of a TV series (again, a lot like the earnestly goofy but sometimes suitably creepy Supernatural), it's safe to say that Dark House is most assuredly a "mixed bag" proposition; when the flick works, it works well. »

"Up until about an hour ago I didn't know this house existed...!" Our friends at ShockTillYouDrop have debuted a trailer for a new indie horror film called Dark House, starring Tobin Bell who you might know as Jigsaw from the Saw series. However, the main focus is on a kid named Nick Di Santo, played by Luke Kleintank, who is haunted by the ability to touch someone and see exactly how they will die. The film is directed by Victor Salva, of Jeepers Creepers 1 & 2, Rites of Passage, Clownhouse, that one film Powder. I'm not sure this lives up to his past work, but it doesn't look too bad. The trailer may seem tame at first, but the action ramps up in the second half with lots of axe violence. In select theaters March for horror lovers. Watch the official trailer for Victor Salva's horror Dark House, debuted by ShockTillYouDrop: »

Jeepers creepers, a Minecraft movie? What will they think of next? Ok, given how popular the video game franchise is, it's not a huge surprise that it may spawn as a movie. Confirmation that Warner Brothers is working on a potential Minecraft film came from game designer Markus "Notch" Persson, who leaked that nugget if info on his Twitter tonight... Someone is trying leak the fact that we're working with Warner Brothers on a potential Minecraft Movie. I wanted to be the leak!.
