In an exclusive interview with Flickering Myth about his new film Shut In, producer Steven Schneider sits down with Senior Staff Writer Scott Davis to discuss the film, his upcoming projects Paranormal Activity, Insidious and everything in between…
Steven Schneider: Very happy, yes! It’s always a little scary exposing a new movie to the world, since there’s inevitably a chance it won’t be as well received as you think it deserves. Fortunately, in the case of Shut In, the initial response has been great and we’re hopeful that the positive word-of-mouth will continue.
Sd: What was it about this script and idea that made you want to make it?
SS: I’ve always had a thing for contained, »

'Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl': Johnny Depp as Capt. Jack Sparrow. 'Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl' review: Mostly an enjoyable romp (Oscar Movie Series) Pirate movies were a Hollywood staple for about three decades, from the mid-'20s (The Sea Hawk, The Black Pirate) to the mid-to-late '50s (Moonfleet, The Buccaneer), when the genre, by then mostly relegated to B films, began to die down. Sporadic resurrections in the '80s and '90s turned out to be critical and commercial bombs (Pirates, Cutthroat Island), something that didn't bode well for the Walt Disney Company's $140 million-budgeted film "adaptation" of one of their theme-park rides. But Neptune's mood has apparently improved with the arrival of the new century. He smiled – grinned would be a more appropriate word – on the Gore Verbinski-directed Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, »

With the death of horror film legend Christopher Lee, the last of the legendary honor guard of horror has passed on. He was part of an elite group that created the horror genre. Lee’s passing is a reminder that it’s been a long time since we had a new horror film superstar. Is the day of the horror film specialist gone forever? Where are the big-screen boogie-men for the 21st century?
Once upon a time there were a group of actors, known as the ‘screen boogiemen’ who created the horror film/monster movie genre (starting in Universal Studios and later in Hammer Studios.) They were specialists who understood the psychology and performance style of horror cinema and became legends in the industry. The first was silent film star Lon Chaney Sr. (Phantom of the Opera, London After Midnight, the Hunchback of Notre Dame, the Unholy Three, the Monster, »

The day monster kids have dreaded for some time has arrived. Mournful, nostalgic, and melancholy – it’s the end of an era for more than one generation of horror fans. It seemed like Christopher Lee would live through all eternity, but unlike some of the characters he played, there’s no bringing him back to life this time. He made it to 93 and went out on a high note, appearing in the final Hobbit film just this past winter. He had an amazing career of fantastic performances and remains the greatest villain actor in film history. Rip to the last classic horror star and thank you for all the monster memories.
Christopher Lee was married to his wife Birgit (Gitte) for 54 years.
Here, according to Movie Geeks Jim Batts, Dana Jung, Sam Moffitt, and myself, are Christopher Lee’s ten best roles.
It’s only fitting that The Curse Of Frankenstein, »

Gore Verbinski is returning to horror. 13 years after The Ring, the Pirates of the Caribbean filmmaker is toning down the blockbuster spectacle for a supernatural scare film set at a wellness spa. Dane DeHaan and the incredibly named Mia Goth are set to star, with Jason Isaacs newly added as the villain. In A Cure for Wellness, DeHaan will…

Rick Baker has worked on classic films such as “Hellboy”, “An American Werewolf in London”, “The Ring”, and “The Rocketeer” to list a few. Now, Baker has brought his talents to recreate The Joker from Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s “Death of the Family” arc. Back in July, 2012 Greg Capullo had this to say about his interpretation of The Joker, Capullo: "You know, I'm happy to be doing this because I look at it as an opportunity to have fun. So no, this is going to be a blast. Let's put it this way. I would have put my own slant on the way the Joker looks traditionally anyway. Now I can go down the road of, like, Texas Chainsaw Massacre stuff. And I'm a heavy metal guy, so stuff like Slipknot pops in my head, you know? So I'm going, "Yeah! Something really, really dark and creepy!" It amplifies it. »
Warning: contains very mild spoilers for Daredevil.
Charlie Cox - you either know him as Daredevil’s brooding lawyer/vigilante Matt Murdock, Boardwalk Empire’s Ira volunteer Owen Sleater, and/or Tristan Thorn from the criminally underrated family film Stardust.

I was here yesterday for the Avengers interviews, have you had a chance to see the new movie yet?
Not yet, I’m very excited to. Is it good?
It’s very good. And because I’ve been watching that, and binging Daredevil at a similar time, I was wondering if you think »
Director James Wan and his Conjuring scripters Carey & Chad Hayes are teaming for a remake of Sidney J. Furie’s frightening, 1982 based on a true story horror, The Entity. Wan will produce with Roy Lee (The Ring, Poltergeist 2015) for New Line, while the Hayes write a new version of the film, about a…

Though his spectacular work behind the camera on Furious 7 is sure to send countless blockbuster offers across his desk, James Wan is still keeping true to his bloodcurdling origins. The Insidious helmer will produce a remake of 1980s horror pic The Entity with the same creative team behind his 2013 horror hit The Conjuring.
Chad and Carey Hayes, who scripted The Conjuring and are also set to reteam with Wan in the same capacity when he directs next year’s The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Poltergeist, will write the screenplay, working from novelist Frank De Felitta’s original script. Roy Lee, a major player in the horror world, is also attached as a producer.
The original Entity starred Barbara Hershey as Carla Moran, a single mother who was reportedly assaulted, both physically and sexually, by a supernatural presence. Ron Silver also starred as a doctor who believed Moran was abusing »

Rome — Italian director with Hollywood credentials Gabriele Muccino (“The Pursuit of Happyness,” “Seven Pounds”) is set to shoot “Summertime,” an ensemble coming-of-age/road movie set in Rome, San Francisco, New Orleans and Cuba “about four youths in that unique unrepeatable formative phase after high school, before college, during which they crack the shell of adolescence,” he said.
For the four main roles in this mostly English-language pic, Muccino has cast Matilda Lutz, the emerging Italian actress who will play the lead in the next chapter in the “Ring” franchise; locally hot Italian TV actor Brando Pacitto (“Braccialetti Rossi”); and young U.S. actors Joseph Haro (“Glee,” “Welcome to the Family”) and Taylor Frey (“Gossip Girl,” G.B.F.).

There was a time before The Lone Ranger and Pirates of the Caribbean when Gore Verbinski was known not as Disney’s go-to director for big-budget bores, but rather as the exciting helmer behind excellent horror remake The Ring. Now, he’s attempting to regain some of that credibility by taking on a small-scale supernatural horror pic at New Regency called A Cure for Wellness, and to aid him in that pursuit, Verbinski is calling on the talents of Kill Your Darlings star Dane DeHaan and on-the-rise actress Mia Goth.
DeHaan will star as a man who is sent to Europe in order to retrieve his boss from a “wellness spa,” only to become trapped in the facility and realize that its staff members have a far more nefarious goal than simply improving the health of their patients.
Goth, meanwhile, is in negotiations to take on the supporting role of »

The pair will both star in Gore Verbinski's new horror film, The Hollywood Reporter reveals.
The film tells the story of a company employee (DeHaan), who is tasked with rescuing his boss from a sinister "wellness spa".
Goth will play a patient, who is unaware of the spa's malevolent practices.
Another American Horror Story alumnus has checked into the upcoming season of FX's enduring horror anthology series, a Suspiria-inspired TV series is in the works, and Dane DeHaan and Mia Goth will play the lead roles in A Cure for Wellness, Gore Verbinsk's return to horror.
American Horror Story: Hotel: Showrunner Ryan Murphy revealed via Twitter today that Kathy Bates will be "running the Hotel" in FX's American Horror Story: Hotel, the fifth chapter of the horror anthology series. Bates is no stranger to Murphy's show, having played Marie Delphine Lalaurie in American Horror Story: Coven and Ethel Darling in American Horror Story: Freak Show.
Bates joins a cast that includes Lady Gaga, Matt Bomer, Cheyenne Jackson, Wes Bentley, and Chloë Sevigny. American Horror Story: Hotel is expected to debut this fall, and it will be the first season without the phenomenal Jessica Lange in the cast. »

You might think with seaweed wraps, soothing sounds, luxurious environs, and a regimen of pampering and care, a spa would be the most unlikely setting for a horror movie. Perhaps that's what makes the idea behind Gore Verbinski's next film so perfect. Read More: Steve Carell May Be A 'Nuisance' For Gore Verbinski THR reports that Dane DeHaan and "Nymphomaniac" star Mia Goth will pair up for "A Cure For Wellness." Penned by Justin Haythe ("Revolutionary Road," "The Lone Ranger"), the story follows a young man sent to rescue his boss from the sinister doings of a "wellness spa," only to wind up trapped as well. Yikes. Never has exfoliating been more terrifying. This sounds like a interesting move for Verbinski, away from bloated blockbusters to something more in line with his leaner genre roots and films like "The Ring," "The Mexican," and "The Weather Man." Production starts this summer and you'll see it. »

Following the first three films in "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise along with "Rango" and "The Lone Ranger," filmmaker Gore Verbinski is returning to the horror genre which he previously dabbled in to great results with 2002's "The Ring".
Verbinski has reportedly cast Dane DeHaan and Mia Goth as the two leads in his upcoming supernatural horror tale "A Cure for Wellness" at New Regency. "Revolutionary Road" scribe Justin Haythe is writing the script.
DeHaan plays an employee who is sent to rescue his boss from a European 'wellness spa' but soon realizes he's trapped. He discovers that the facility has a more sinister purpose than just serving the health needs of its patients.
Goth would play a longtime patient who is oblivious to the spa director's dark designs for her. Filming on the project is slated to start in Europe in June.

While filmmaker Gore Verbinski is probably best known for helming the initial Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy (those sequels are masterpieces compared to On Stranger Tides), he began as a sort of journeyman director with Mousehunt and The Mexican before hitting it big with The Ring. The 2002 film was a box office smash and scared the hell out of yours truly, and now the filmmaker is poised to return to the horror genre for the first time in over a decade. [caption id="attachment_299097" align="alignright" width="360"] Image via Sony Pictures[/caption] We’ve known about A Cure for Wellness as a Verbinski project since last fall, but it is now firmed up as the filmmaker’s next movie as THR reports that Dane DeHaan and Mia Goth (Nymphomaniac) are set to star. Scripted by Justin Haythe (Revolutionary Road), the New Regency film tells the story of an employee (DeHaan) who is sent to rescue his »

Though Gore Verbinski has become known for utterly gargantuan blockbusters in the forms of the Pirates of the Caribbean series and The Lone Ranger, The Ring remains his most gripping work. With a grasp on both stellar visual style and existential dread, Verbinski brought real fright to the 2002 film. So it’s cause for excitement he’ll return to horror…

It’s been a few years since Gore Verbinski tackled full-on horror with The Ring. Since then, he’s mostly had to deal with skeletal buccaneers and other seagoing creatures in the Pirates franchise and the supernatural trappings of The Lone Ranger. But he’s looking to dig back into terrifying territory with A Cure For Wellness and has hired Dane DeHaan and Mia Goth to star.Revolutionary Road’s Justin Haythe – who worked with Verbinski on Ranger – is on script duty for this one, which focuses on a young man (DeHaan) sent to fetch his boss from a therapeutic institute nestled in the Swiss Alps. But while he’s there, his boss disappears and he has to extend his stay at the place. Which is when he realises he’s actually trapped and starts to uncover the dark secrets lurking around the hallways. Verbinski is a producer on this »
It may have only been released in August of last year, but survival horror game Five Nights at Freddy's has racked up quite the fan base, praising it's simplistic design, non traditional storytelling, and ability to wring genuine paranoia and scares from a genre that has seriously gone down hill as of late. It has also given way to countless Let's Play videos, two sequels (again, the first one was only released last Summer), and now, the big screen beckons with Warner Bros. picking up the rights for a feature adaption, with Roy Lee (The Ring, the upcoming Poltergeist remake), Seth Grahame-Smith (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter), and David Katzenberg (the soon to be shooting remake of Stephen King's It) in line to produce. The game puts you into the shoes of the night security guard at Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, a darker version of Chuck E. Cheese, and the aim is »
