Top 7 Supernatural Films that Haunt Us

7 April 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Mike Flanagan wowed audiences with his feature directorial debut, Absentia, a few years back. Now he returns with an even creepier tale of supernatural terrors in Oculus (review). To celebrate the release of Oculus, we bring you a look at the Top Seven Supernatural Films that Haunt Us.

The funny thing about a really powerful supernatural movie, at least those that get wide theatrical releases, is they usually transcend the theater and become the talk of the nation for a while. And many of them even hang around our psyches for years and years to come.

We'll begin, as always, with our honorable mentions, and you'll see that many of them also took the country by storm. Low budget, found footage movies like Paranormal Activity and The Blair Witch Project were absolutely larger than life during their theatrical releases.

However, bigger films can also reach out and grab you. Poltergeist »

The 20 Best Summer Blockbusters of All Time: 'Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl'

3 April 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

A movie about pirates. Based on a theme park ride. Starring the eighth lead from Lord of the Rings and the second fiddle from Bend It Like Beckham. From the director of The Ring remake (which was good) and The Mexican (which was, well, The Mexican.) Yes, expectations were let’s-say-mild for Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, a film which looked on paper like a high-concept travesty-in-waiting. (The full title was ten words long.)

But there was a wild card in Disney’s deck. When Pirates arrived in July 2003, Johnny Depp was a well-respected actor »

The Grudge Coming Back to Theaters in a Franchise-Launching Reboot; Sam Raimi to Produce

20 March 2014 2:21 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Gather round, children, and I'll tell you a tale, a tale of a time when the spirits of young Japanese girls haunted movie theaters around the world.  The fad likely started with 1998's Ringu, a horror movie that inspired Gore Verbinski's 2002 film, The Ring.  That same year, writer-director Takashi Shimizu took the genre further with Ju-On: The Grudge.  True to form, that film was also remade in America, with Takashi again at the helm and Sarah Michelle Gellar in a starring role.  I tell you this because even though The Grudge managed to churn out a few sequels, the property is now headed for a total reboot with plans to build a new franchise.  Hit the jump for more. Deadline reports that Ghost House Pictures and Good Universe will relaunch The Grudge with Jeff Buhler (Midnight Meat Train) drafting the script.  The low-budget horror film was the first in »

Jack Reher to Adapt Corrosion!

13 March 2014 5:52 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Just when you thought the news day was over... more comes rolling in! Good thing for you we don't eat, sleep, or have actual lives outside of the horror industry. We do, however, drink heavily whenever possible. In any event...

Variety is reporting that The Ring producer Mike Macari and Affirmative Entertainment’s Nicholas Bogner have optioned Jon Bassoff’s novel Corrosion and tapped Jack Reher to adapt the tome. We first told you about this back in September, but today it's official.

Corrosion is currently the number one selling noir novel on Amazon and revolves around a battle-scarred soldier making his way through the backwater towns of Colorado to get back to a woman, who might be his loved one or his next victim — or both. It is in the vein of Primal Fear, Se7en, and No Country for Old Men.

Production is set to start later this summer. »

Us producer boards Oz supernatural thriller

27 January 2014 1:58 PM, PST | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

The Ring and Mulholland Drive producer Neal Edelstein is serving as the executive producer on Ashes, an Australian supernatural thriller/horror film about three generations of women who battle a curse.

Jonathan auf der Heide is attached to direct the film written by Mike Jones and produced by Damsel Pictures. Raquelle David.

As a first-time feature producer, David knew she had to enlist an experienced Ep to qualify for financial support from Screen Australia and Screen Nsw. She approached a lot of Australian EPs, who turned her down, evidently due to concerns about the genre.

Via Jones, she got in touch with Edelstein and met the Us producer last October at the American Film Market, which she attended with Screen Australia.s assistance.

Edelstein responded to the script, which has parallels with Haunting Melissa, a digital, transmedia ghost story he has created via his company Hooked Digital Media, and agreed »

'Two and a Half Men's' Amber Tamblyn 'fascinated with Brittany Murphy's death'

23 January 2014 1:30 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

As Jenny on "Two and a Half Men," Amber Tamblyn is brash and rash. She's the daughter no one knew Charlie had.

Coming into the CBS Thursday comedy in its 11th season was easier than one might imagine.

"What if I just realized for the first time that Jon Cryer was physically abusive and Ashton Kutcher refused to speak to me and had his entire trailer moved?" Tamblyn asks Zap2it. "They are the two sweetest guys in the whole world. They are so kind and supportive, and so is Conchata Ferrell. She is so funny. I feel like Jenny will become Berta when she grows up.

"I'll help anyone drink," she says of her character. "I will support anyone's alcoholism or drug addiction, I don't care. Holland Taylor is so extraordinary."

She likens this to joining "House" during its long run, but working on a comedy is easier.

Interview: A conversation with Endangered screenwriter Jack Reher

18 January 2014 5:53 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Zachary Leeman chats with Jack Reher about the upcoming film Endangered, his adaptation of Pin, and the art of screenwriting...

Zachary Leeman: Before we get to your upcoming movie Endangered, let's talk about screenwriting in general. Walk me through the moment you went from aspiring writer to a paid screenwriter with people like Billy Bob Thornton reading your work...

Jack Reher: Man, that's a hole and the white rabbit got pretty damned bloody while stumbling down it. I was doing my undergrad at the University of Minnesota. Business. I had that career plan. You know? Always stayed grounded. On a whim, I signed up for a screenwriting class taught by Thomas Pope who did fairly well early on in his career - fresh out of USC, he was hired to draft Dune with Ridley Scott directing. Scott left, as did Pope, then Lynch came on. He also did work »

Take a Look at the ‘Bioshock’ Movie That Never Was

17 January 2014 11:30 AM, PST | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

The attempt to adapt Irrational Games’ Bioshock for the big screen is a story almost as tragic as that of the game’s fallen utopia of Rapture.  Originally snapped up in 2008 with director Gore Verbinski at the helm (hopefully channeling equal parts The Ring and Pirates of the Caribbean), the film was supposed to be a hard-r flick that didn’t wince at violence.  When the studio execs balked at the proposed $200 million budget and counteroffered with $80 million, Verbinski dropped out at was replaced by 28 Weeks Later director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, who then left the project in 2012.  The final nail in the coffin game in the form of Irrational Games’ own Ken Levine, who was given carte blanche by publisher 2K Games to pull the proverbial plug if he saw fit.  He did.

The concept artist for this tale of woe, one Jim Martin, has released his portfolio of art for the sunken film, »
